  • This condo is absolutely amazing! Melissa and Oscar are wonderful hosts. We were lucky enough to meet Melissa when we stayed for the week and she is incredibly nice. She kept in contact with us throughout our stay and was very helpful. When we arrived, the condo was spotless and had everything we needed, plus more. The location is perfect for whatever you might want to do in the area and you couldn't ask for a better view from the balcony. We will definitely be back again!!!

  • A place you should be!
    We spent 9 awesome days at St. Pete Beach in this lovely condo with the wonderfully view from the Patio. In the morning we saw dolphins and in the evening manatees! We felt like home from the first Minute. Mellissa is the best host you can imagine. We will come back!

    Top Lage! Ruhig, strandnah, tolle Sonnenuntergänge, verkehrsgünstig gelegen, klimatisiert und super Blick vom Balkon! Das Apartment ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und hat alles was man braucht. Auch für Strandbesuche ist bestens gesorgt, Kühlbox, Kühltasche, bequeme Campingstühle, Strandlaken. Beim Frühstücken kann man Delfine beobachten und abends schwimmen Manatees vorbei. Was braucht man mehr!

    Response from Oscar And Melissa:

    Hello, Gabi,
    I wish we could have an umbrella shade over the patio table but the condo association says it is against the rules. If I had somewhere to store a large beach umbrella I would but they are so big (and sandy) there is no good place to store it. Thanks for your lovely review and message. Happy Summer, Melissa

  • My experience with Oscar and Melissa was nothing short of amazing. My husband and I (email hidden)te Beach condo for the 4 days leading up to our beach wedding and for a few days after. The condo was an absolutely perfect choice for our needs-it was less than 5 minutes away from the location of our wedding ceremony, across the street from a beautiful beach, and in close proximity to some cool restaurants as well as shopping and any other things that one might need (groceries, drug stores, etc.). We had our own parking space and ample guest parking was available in the condo parking lot, which was just great to accommodate the many relatives and friends that visited in the days leading up to the wedding. And the condo itself was wonderful-extremely clean, bright and cheerful, plenty of clean towels and linens as well as a nicely supplied kitchen, free WiFi, cable, beautiful water-front balcony which we enjoyed our coffee on many mornings-simply charming!! Melissa also left us fresh flowers to congratulate us on our wedding, which was a sweet and thoughtful touch that we both appreciated. Communication with Melissa was impeccable from start to finish, she was always prompt and detailed in answering e-mails and I felt that she was very accessible for all of my questions both prior to and during our stay. I would highly recommend this condo for your stay on St. Pete Beach, and these renters provided a wonderful experience from start to finish-I look forward to staying at the condo again during our next trip to the area. Thank you Oscar and Melissa for making our wedding week a pleasure!!

  • Excellent place, great location and awesome hosting by Melissa and Oscar. I spent 10 great days with family at St. Petersburg, a city we will return for sure, and this apartment is definitely the place to stay. We felt at home from the very first minute we enter, perfectly organized and well equipped.
    Thanks Melissa and Oscar for hosting us, you have been wonderful. Hope we meet again. Best regards,

  • This was our first time visiting S-Petersburg, Florida for Spring Break . We were pleasantly surprised! The condo was wonderful!! Perfect view from the balcony. It was very clean and had everything we needed from liquid hand soap at all of the sinks to any kitchen utensils we needed - it had even more than we thought would be there! Melissa was very thorough in leaving all of the necessary information we needed. She always responded very quickly with any questions we had.
    Overall, I would highly recommend renting this unit if you are thinking of visiting St-Petersburg. Thanks Melissa and Oscar!!!!

  • Great location in St. Pete's Beach. The condo was lovely, well appointed and very comfortable. Favourite time was morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the channel. Thank you to our wonderful host, Melissa. The information you provided was helpful and made our stay so much easier. Our only regret...that we couldn't stay longer!

  • Oscar & Melissa's condo was everything I hoped it would be - I couldn't have been more pleased. I spent the month of February in this home away from home. Very clean, furnished with everything you would need for a beach vacation, including suggestions for activities for me and my visiting guests, and restaurants to try. I was sad to leave. The location is fantastic for the beach and for taking walks in every direction. It is also very quiet since it overloks the intercoastal waterway and not the street. I hope to return next winter!

  • I had the pleasure of renting Melissa and Oscar's condo for the entire month of January. I was leery of renting online because a friend of mine was scammed out of thousands of dollars. This is the real deal! The condo was well located, tastefully decorated and had everything I needed in order to be comfortable. Rent it! You'll be glad you did. Thanks Melissa, I will be back. Eva

  • This place was perfect for our stay in St. Pete Beach - so well located, easy to find and convenience all around. Wonderful restaurants nearby and close to beach access for long walks. The condo was well designed with all the comforts of home. This place is super clean and well organized. Melissa communicated with us every step of the way and was so kind to even offer extra cooking pans if we needed to cook during our stay (Thanksgiving time). We could not ask for more from a host/hostess. Thank you for a great stay!
