We visit St. Pete Beach almost every year and generally stay at a large resort, but wanted to try some place different. I stumbled upon the Gulf Strand doing an online search and couldn't believe the affordable rate for a one-bedroom condo on the beach. Traveling with my husband and teenage son, we now need more room than the standard hotel room but large condos are just too big for us. This was just the right size. The unit we rented (403) was perfect, clean and with a washer/dryer as an added bonus. The kitchen was fully stocked and larger than we expected. Just steps to the beach, the Gulf Strand has everything a family needs for a a getaway. Publix and Walgreens are right across the street and and I only wish we stayed here when my son was young, as the closet in our unit was packed with beach toys for young kids. Our unit was a little dated, with prominently featured VCR's, but the TVs were updated.
The pool is very small and hard to walk around with lawn chairs surrounding it, but there is a hot tub, which is a plus. The beach offers rentals on cabanas and beach chairs and just next door is the public beach, which offer far cheaper rentals on these items.
We would highly recommend the Gulf Strand and Betty, the office manager, is very accommodating!!
