St. Pete Beach, Florida is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. Boca Shores Condominium is a private, gated community in a residential area at the north end of the island. The front door and windows of the condo face east and overlook a manicured courtyard to the blue green Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Enjoy your morning coffee or wind down in the evening on your west-facing private balcony. Boca Shores has plenty of areas to relax: enjoy the sunrise from the dock, fish from the pier, and watch dolphins, manatees, pelicans and wildlife of all kinds. It's a short walk to Treasure Island's pristine white sand beaches and stunning sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. The condo is a short walk to the Sunday Morning Market on Corey Avenue. The condo is convenient to Downtown St. Pete Beach, Pass-A-Grille, Downtown St. Petersburg, Gulfport, Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, Redington Shores, Indian Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, Bellair Shores, Clearwater Beach, Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Safety Harbor and two airports: Tampa International (TPA) and St. Pete-Clearwater (PIE). There's a plethora of restaurants, bars, gift shops, outdoor markets, and shopping nearby. Boca Shores the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing vacation, set-up your remote office or collect rental income.
Boca Shores Condominiums are individually owned. Some owners have multiple condos. Some owners live here year-round. Some owners enjoy their condo for six months and rent it the other six months. Some owners rent their condo annually. Some owners rent their condo during the prime Snowbird Season (December-May) or seasonally (with 1-month minimum rental contracts). Boca Shores is a family-friendly community with ages ranging from young children to senior citizens. Boca Shores is dog-friendly but ONLY OWNERS CAN HAVE DOGS.
St. Pete Beach is a long, narrow island in the Gulf of Mexico. Resorts, hotels, motels, restaurants, bars, shops, businesses, residential areas and public beaches are up and down the island. There are large public parking areas but they're expensive and they'll tow a car as soon as the meter runs out. I recommend one of these:
"Gorgeous, laid-back St. Pete Beach was voted TripAdvisor's No. 1 Beach in the U.S. and No. 5 in the world in 2012, based on millions of reviews from travelers around the world. When you visit this magical expanse of sand, you'll understand why."
Rent a bicycle, electric bike, scooter, stand-up paddle board and/or kayak. The best way to get around here is on a bicycle. If there's heavy traffic, it's OK to on the sidewalk instead of the skinny bike lane. Also, learn the side streets and get off the main roads. You can walk from the condo to these businesses that rent everything you'll need to get around:
Reminder: be sure to rent a bike lock, too!
