“GREAT place to stay!”

What a wonderful time we had at this oceanfront resort! They have an extremely clean pools for adults and kiddies, jacuzzi's and right on the beach! All balconies have beautiful sunset views of the ocean! I stayed in a very updated two bedroom, two bathroom condo, with all kitchenware, fridge, and even kids toys for the beach! Could not have had a better vacation, will definately recommend to my friends and return when visiting St. Pete.

“Great beach vacation accommodation.”

We stayed at Sunset Vista's for my son's wedding on the beach. We had a beachfront unit and loved looking out to the Gulf and seeing the boats and the parasailers going by. The assigned parking was nice and having the privacy of the separate bedrooms was good too. I would definitely stay there again.

"A Great Stay in a Spacious Suite!"

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and thought it was excellent. Having read a couple of not so great reviews, we were a little worried - we needn't have been. When we walked in, we breathed a huge sigh of relief.

We were in Room N412, and our balcony (which was accessible from both the the living room and master bedroom) had spectacular views of both the main pool and the beach/sea. The suite had 2 bathrooms, which came in very handy for the four of us. We also felt that the suite was extremely well stocked too.I hate being cooped up in a hotel room, but the spaciousness here was fantastic.

The staff we came in contact with were great. We had an extrememly warm welcome on arrival and the bonus was our room was ready, even though we arrived early. The Reception staff were lovely when we checked out too. My daughter was in the room when the maid service called to see if we wanted more towels, and left us plenty. Any grounds people we met around, either while waiting for the elevator or passed on the way to our room, were polite and friendly, always speaking to us and often enquiring if we were having a great stay.

“Very nice vacation rental on the beach.”

This was our 2nd time staying at Sunset Vista. As always, the beach view was excellent. All rooms have a great view of the beach. The two bedroom condo is well equipped with everything you need. The property is well kept up. Enjoyed the two pools and hot tubs, plus the beach. They added a community chest for beach items to be left and shared with other guests. The John Pass boardwalk area, less than 1/2 mile away has great restaurants and places to hang out

"On the Beach"

Great location right on the beach at Treasure Island.
Standard suites are fine with two adequate sized bedrooms - a good living space and well equipped kitchen.
Tip - make sure you book a gulf facing room to maximize the view.
Even better - if one of the penthouse suites is available - pay for the upgrade - sooo worth it.

Surf's Up in Tampa!

Members of the Iowa delegation to the Republican National Convention were arriving in Tampa today, including yours truly and Register reporter Jennifer Jacobs.  Sen. Charles Grassley, his wife, Barbara, and staff arrived at the delegation hotel, the Sunset Vistas Beachfront on Treasure Island, as we were checking in.  A costumed pirate was posing for pictures in the stiff breeze outside, and the surf is definitely up. There have been a few sprinkles, but no heavy rain yet.

 The Republican National Committee this afternoon announced a new convention schedule that compresses four days’ worth of meetings in into three.  Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to cause heavy rains and high winds in the Tampa area on Monday. Fears that the city could face a hurricane were diminishing as the storm appeared to be veering west.

Republican congressional candidate John Archer of Bettendorf was originally scheduled to speak to the convention on Monday. The day’s activities are canceled, but there is time on Tuesday’s schedule for GOP congressional candidates to speak.  The schedule did not indicate whether all of the originally scheduled candidates would still get to speak. Update:  Archer’s campaign confirmed today that Archer is scheduled to speak on Tuesday.

"Great Place to Stay"

My family and I were all very happy with the Sunset Vistas. The condo was spotlessly clean and well-stocked. I especially loved the fact the cleaning staff does not come in your room every day-once I'm settled in, I like to feel like it's my place and not have my stuff moved around. If we needed anything (more coffee, toilet paper, towels...) they were there within seconds! I swear, they were sitting outside my door waiting for my call. We loved that we had an assigned parking spot in the garage so we never had to worry about parking. The beach was very close as was the pool. We will definitel stay here again when we're back in St. Pete!!!

"Really Nice Place"

I rented out a condo for a night while going to the beach and the Rays game. The rooms were really nice and clean! I had an amazing view off of my balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. We had two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a fully equipped kitchen this was a great hotel for the money.

"Pleasant Stay"

Stayed at Sunset Vistas for 5 nights in July and had a very pleasant stay. Even though most properties in St. Pete are aging, Sunset Vistas was very nice and clean. I have a bad back from surgeries and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Pool and hot tub were great except they close at 10pm, which I thought was little early, but it does make for a quiet night for sleeping. The cafe had very good food and reasonably priced. The shop in the cafe had everything you would need to purchase such as snacks, drinks, individual dish tabs and laundry detergent, and toiletries. Great beach area. My kids (18 and 11) loved the ping pong table, volleyball on the beach, and Shake Shop next door (excellent shakes!). Staff was extremely nice, accomodating and helpful. Tiki bar is a little pricey but we bought our own drinks at the grocery store.

"Wonderful Family Vacation!"

We just returned from a one week stay at Sunset Vistas. The beach there is just beautiful. We had a two bedroom condo that was equipped with everything you needed for a comfortable stay. The fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer were great. Both beds were very comfortable, and the unit was very clean. We were met upon arrival by a very nice security guard that seemed to be there 24/7. He was very friendly and did an excellent job patrolling the property. That made us feel very safe. The front desk was very helpful and courteous. Steven at the front desk was so nice in suggesting points of interest and went above and beyond in offering information about the area.
