Description of the Tierra Verde vacation condo rental
Located at 1515 Pinellas Bayway on Tierra Verde our complex lies on the east shore of the island, offering vistas of Tampa Bay and near-shore islands. Two bridges away from the hustle and bustle of St. Pete Beach, the property is situated in the midst of a marine eco-park. Mangrove islands provide rookeries for many of Florida's sea and migratory birds and the lagoons and shallows between the keys are full of sea life. The bridge to Ft.DeSoto Park (in 2005 its North Beach had the distinction of being named the #1 beach in the U.S.)is less than a mile to the south. The view from your top floor suite is captivating. On any day you may see dolphins, a manatee, or an osprey diving for fish or enjoy the company of a snowy egret looking for a handout while you are relaxing on the balcony. If you're feeling peckish yourself after playing on the courts or testing the surf, try one of the half-dozen eateries nestled in the Tierra Verde Town Center, just a block away. Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant serves up waterfront dining and entertainment while several other venues offer Italian, German, Mexican and Chinese food for additional variety.If 'al fresco'dining is your inclination, you can take your steaks and BBQ them on the picnic dock by the pool. Whatever you've been up to, at the end of the day you can relax in your well-equipped suite and plan your next adventure

Area Information
Although next door to the bustling beach communities,Tierra Verde and its neighboring park and wilderness islands are a world apart from the greater Tampa Bay area. Tierra Verde is the only developed island in a chain extending south from Isla del Sol to the Gulf of Mexico, bordered by Tampa Bay on its eastern shore and by small keys with pristine beaches on the Gulf side. This marine preserve and bird sanctuary is best explored by canoe or kayak as portions of the area are not open to motorised traffic. Don't have a watercraft? You can rent a canoe or kayak in Ft. Desoto Park or seadoos and powerboats at the island marina. A water taxi is also available from Pasagrille's Merry Pier to Shell Key (great beaching and shelling) and a ferry service runs from Ft. Desoto park to historical Egmont Key.
Billy's Seafod Restaurant also has a complementary tour of
the adjacent lagoon for its patrons.

Cross the Intracoastal bridge and you can access all the amenities of a large metropolitan area. Nightlife and dining along the length of Gulf Blvd. Shopping at Tyrone
Mall and the Ellenton Outlets. Major league sports, dozens of golf courses and our famous local theme park, Busch Gardens, can be enjoyed within a 45 min. drive. Disneyworld,
Universal Studios and Seaworld are a manageable 1.5 hr.
drive when the kids want a break from the beach.

Local amenities are handy - but a car is essential. The nearest chain supermarkets are off-island (choice of 3 within 15 min.)all located in shopping centers with add'l retail shops and services. The north end of Tierra Verde has a small plaza with useful services inc. a hair salon, deli, post office, hardware store, bait shop, etc. There are also 2 gas stations, with convenience stores,a marina with boat rentals and restaurant in the adjacent resort. Off island, look to Tyrone Mall for the nearest major shopping (20-25min) with big box stores on the periphery.
Or take the scenic drive over Tampa Bay on the Sunshine Skyway and head for the Ellenton Outlets. In the case of a medical emergency there are several hospitals and clinics within a 20 min. drive and 3 pharmacies within 10 min. And when it's time to leave our sunny island (St. Pete claims a over 300 sunny days per yr!)three international airports service the area- Tampa and St.Pete/Clearwater are only a 30 min. hop barring rush hour traffic and Sarasota/Bradenton
is approx 45 min. to the south.

This has been my seventh consecutive year at Holiday Island . As always we had a great time very quiet and relaxing, and always feel very safe. The beach fort Desoto is by far the best beach for our family in Florida ! I Highly recommend it . I am already counting down for next year.

Tierra Verde Great Experience

Lovely condo. Well appointed. Grounds are very well kept.. We made good use of the pool area. Nice barbecue area over looking the Bay. Good fishing right off of the boat docks. Peter couldn't have tried harder to make sure we had a great vacation.. Certainly would rent from him again!

We stayed here for a week with our 2 children and had a wonderful time. The beautiful and clean beaches at Fort DeSoto were within a 5-10 minute drive, with St. Pete just down the road as well. The condo was extremely clean and comfortable and updated with all the necessary amenities. The pool was sparkling clear and all the people were very friendly. If you are looking for a quiet peaceful stay that is close to all the activities, this is the place. The owners are extremely friendly and very responsive to phone and emails. I highly recommend this condo for anyone wishing to stay in this area. We are looking forward to returning for a second stay.

This lovely condo was very clean, beautifully furnished and super comfortable. The pool sparkled and had a tranquil view of the little islands and twinkling lights across the bay. The common areas are also very clean and quiet. We felt welcomed by the people we met there and really enjoyed the location. The Ft. Desoto beaches were a big hit. It was wonderful to experience Florida beaches and biking trails that are surrounded by nature instead of homes and hotels yet St. Pete Beach is right up the road for those who wanted more shopping and restaurants. Peter was quick to contact me and respond to any questions I had. I would absolutely recommend this vacation home and would stay here again!
