Isla Del Sol - meaning Island of the Sun, is an island community on a tropical barrier island surrounded by Boca Ciega Bay and nestled between the southernmost tip of St Petersburg and St Pete Beach, Florida. This island community has many different condo neighborhoods each with beautiful tropical landscaping, heated pools, spas, clubhouses, some with private beaches and water views everywhere you look. Biking and walking trails will take you from your condo to the Shopper’s Village and around the golf course of the private Isla Del Sol Yacht and Country Club. "The Island" is just minutes from the warm, turquoise waters and the many beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, Fort DeSoto Park and Fort DeSoto's North Beach, voted one of America's top beaches. Tons of shops, restaurants and many exciting things to do are just a short drive across the Bayway Bridge to Gulf Blvd. Explore historic Pass-a-Grille beach and the bustling St Pete Beach or drive up the coast following Gulf Blvd through Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, Redington Beach, Indian Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, Belleair Shores all the way to Clearwater Beach to see what adventures you may find! It’s also just a quick drive to I-275 to the experience all that Downtown St Petersburg has to offer.
St. Pete Beach, the most southern link in a chain of barrier islands that make up the Tampa Bay Sun Coast, offers residents and visitors miles of pristine white sandy beaches that border the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. St. Pete Beach, formerly known as St. Petersburg Beach, has a wide variety of accommodations ranging from large scale resorts to the classic Florida "mom & pop" vintage motels that bring back memories of old Florida. The city was incorporated in 1957 with the consolidation of the Towns of Pass-a-Grille, Don CeSar, Belle Vista, St. Petersburg Beach and unincorporated Pinellas County to become the “City of St. Petersburg Beach.” In 1994, the citizens voted to shorten the name to “St. Pete Beach” to lessen the confusion with the City of St. Petersburg, located on the mainland to the east. The City of St. Pete Beach is located just off the Pinellas County mainland of Saint Petersburg, just south of Treasure Island, 20 miles from Clearwater Beach and within 30 miles of both St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport and Tampa International Airport. With year-round sunshine, an abundance of recreational activities, restaurants, and shopping, St. Pete Beach is one of the most enjoyable places to live and vacation, in the world.

Very pleasant time in a very nice condo. View is still good but new bridge rises so high that the Don Cesar is no longer within sight. New bridge also takes away the historical charm of the drawbridge. Waterfront rentals is great to work with.

The condo location is perfect, the pool is near and the parking is very convenient. I have stayed in many Isla condos, and this was one of the best. I would recommend that travelers be warned of the bridge construction as the barge was anchored outside all day and work was happening.

The location was perfect. Condo is up for sale so
I am unable to rent again next year. If available I would like first crack at Condo in 2014. The condo showed its age with old facets and outdated kitchen however the location made up for everything lacking. The tile floors throughout were very dirty (cleaning staff problem ?)because if you walked around without shoes the soles of your feet were BLACK. I still loved the place so just washed the floors myself a number of times. If sold and up for rent please consider me as first choice because I loved the views and water activities so very much. I experienced a great holiday and would go back to this condo in a heart beat.

Loved our vacation, we have been coming to Isla Del Sol for past three years and love the area. This particular condo could be updated, but great location and amenities. Construction on the new bridge did not bother us, rather enjoyed watching them raise the huge concrete slabs.

We have rented condos at isla for years and years. this unit was very very poorly equipped. there was no kettle, there were no pool towels, and towels for regular use were pathetic, only two or three larger towels in the bathroom which were like sandpaper, there were no movies, no books or magazines, or welcome package of things around the area, no guest book, no wallunit making the place seem very uninhabited and cold, no staple supplies til rented gets to grocery store, no dishwashing liquid, no detergent, no salt, very sparse kitchen, no plastic tumblers , lack of cooking materials, serious lack of general use towels, overall unit would get a c- location is excellent and view was excellent. i have never rented such a sparse unit, unequipped and unfriendly, cot a cozy atmosphere at all. unit was for sale, and calls to show it were unsettling while on vacation. real estate lady was not rude whatsoever, but it was the fact we were even called to show it while on vacation we found insulting. if we were to rent this particular unit again owner would have to pick it up. given choice of other units we would take a chance. was not homey at all.

Only negative was the nearby bridge construction, however, we were warned about the potential noise and random bridge closings. If fact it was interesting to watch the progress. We would definitely rent this unit again. Waterfront Vacations are really great and I won't rent from anyone else.

We loved the condo, very well laid out, very comfortable place to spend a month for a family of four.
We did Purchase rugs for the bathrooms, as it was dangerous when the tile floor was wet, we left them there for others.
We were really upset by the condition of the beach, FILTY is being kind. The pool police were over the top, we had the pool to ourselves most of the time are were constantly being "monitored" for food etc., none of which we EVER had at the pool. We were told that we couldn't do anything that was considered FUN! Can you imagine taking a month off from work to enjoy a family vacation and being told you couldn't have fun?
The pool was dirty, we spend each night "de-bugging" it, with a net. Again we were on vacation. (Strict with visitors but yet not strict with cleanliness).
Bridge construction was no stopped and all you heard was constant banging, I wish I was told there was construction, very noisey woke us up early each morning, we should have been told this.
There was less then a half roll of toliet paper in each bathroom, we found this strange. We left a full package, we knew we were responsible for buying this but it's the first time we stayed anywhere with a half roll!
Isla Del Sol does have very strict rules about kids in the pool. The association cleans the pool every morning Monday - Friday. It is not done on Saturday or Sunday. There was a tropical storm that left some of the beaches pretty dirty during their stay. They were cleaned up as soon as possible.

We came to Tampa for a windsurfing clinic. This condo was just 1/2 mile away from our clinic. Enjoyed watching the boats out front. The management was very responsive to our needs, even on a Sunday. I liked the condo with all tile floors, it feels cleaner to me. Hope you all can visit Tampa, it is a beautiful city.

I booked this online because it looked nice, and when we arrived it was even better than expected. These condos are primarily occupied by owners that are year-round residents. It is well-maintained and not overrun with tourists. If you want relatively easy access to activities like beaches, golf and dining without having to deal with tourist/resort crowds 24/7, this is the place. The condo itself was comfortable, roomy and clean. The pool was great and never crowded. Some of the other building in the complex have access to better beach frontage so if that is what you are looking for be sure to call and ask before you book. However, even nicer beaches are only a short drive away. I would definitely recommend this unit!

Best condo we've stayed in yet in Isla Del Sol...which is off and on for the past 20 years. Don't hesitate to rent this one. Amenities are clean and in proper working order. Condo is tastefully decorated.
