About Gertrude Foster

The picture above is a picture of my Mother, Sister and I. We truly enjoy staying at Boca Ciega Resort because it's a paradise and it is a great escape for me and my family.

Gertrude Foster purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gertrude Foster chose Saint Petersburg

My husband and I were looking for a small, intimate condo great for getaways and spending time with friends. We love Boca Ceiga Bay. It's quiet, it's tranquil and we love the sunsets and watching the dolphins from our private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

The most unique benefit is watching the dolphins jumping in the wake of a near-by boater...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gertrude!

Thank you, thank you, thank you sooo much for allowing us to stay at beautiful Boca Ciega Bay! Pat and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The condo was perfect and just what we like! We found the pool extremely nice with so many nice people to talk to! We never did find the fitness room, but we did get a run in on the beach a couple of days!! I was wondering what kind of bed is in room 203, because I never slept so well in my life. The pillows were exceptional as well! We will definitely be back again some day…..gotta save our pennies

Thanks again!

Little noisy in room depending on who was above us. Gertrude helped us and showed great concern that we enjoyed our stay.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and “ up to date”. Was delighted with the view from the balcony. A small thing but the towels were the big, thick, plush kind. Asked the owner for some places to see and she recommended both places of interest and good restaurants. The complex is centrally located to restaurants, grocery stores, and points of interests. Had a great experience staying there.

Great Condo, Great Area,

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided last minute to make a trip to the Gulf, researching all sites for accommodations last minute for first week of April was frustrating to say the least. Thankfully we hooked up with Gertrude (owner) she not only accommodated us with our dates but made this a simple process. As all the reviews mention, the views from any unit in this complex are amazing (yes we saw the Dolphins from our balcony most days too). The condo has a beautiful swimming pool, hot tub, fishing/boat pier all over looking the Bay. Plenty of free parking as well as elevators. The secure DSL Internet connection was a big bonus for us. Unit was immaculately clean and the owner has tiled the balcony as well as the condo floors no carpet. On the balcony we had outstanding sunset views. Each day we made the easy 10 minute drive to the Beaches then hurried back for the great sunsets off our balcony. The Condo is right across the road from a 40 mile Biking trail which was great for a workout each morning. Awesome place great owner, we will definitely stay here again.

My wife and I were looking for a small condo that was near to everything, but somewhere nice to relax in the evenings. We chose condo 217.Gertrude (owner) was so kind and easy to deal with. Imagine our joy when we arrived, opened a drink and say on the balcony, wondering at the beautiful view, when within 30 minutes and 30 yards we had dolphins playing a manatee surfacing!

The condo itself is just what we had hoped for. Clean, safe, cozy, modern, tidy. It really was a 10 minute drive to beautiful Madeira Beach, John Pass, Indian Rocks etc etc. Can't wait to go again!

Fantastic Stay in Condo Unit 112 with the Best Waterfront and Pool View in the Complex!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were ecstatic about the view. The unit had everything needed from towels, dishes, cookware, coffee maker, microwave, silverware, blender, toaster, paper towels, coffee filters, dish towel, dishwasher and even wine glasses with corkscrew. Everything we needed was already in condo Unit 112. The bed was comfortable with new linens. Internet was fast and secure. Cable TV was on both TVs in the living area and bedroom. Free local calls. My wife and I stayed five days for one of the best getaways ever. The largest Walmart ever built is about a mile away along with many restaurants such as IHOP, Steak and Shake, Outback and others. Publix, ALDI's, and WinnDixie Supermarkets are close to the unit. While the view from the balcony is great you can stay in this unit and see everything with the almost floor to glass ceiling. Unit 112 does allow some small dogs as we obtained approval for a Bichon. Unit 112 has a washer and dryer. We were very pleased with the cooperation and help of Gertrude who also emailed us information on local events such as a street fair. Unit 112 has keyless entry. The complex has pool, hot tub, free parking, fishing pier and provides gas grills for BBQ cooking. We will return and recommend this particular unit. Thanks to Gertrude who made this stay great!

Outstanding Vacation Condo With Views Exceeding Expectations! Five Stars Plus Rating!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The view from this condo is beyond description. Whether on the balcony or viewing from inside the living area though the almost floor to ceiling glass doors the waterfront bay view is outstanding! I watched dolphins playing in the bay each morning. The condo offers everything needed for a vacation. Unit 112 has cookware, glasses, silverware, coffee maker, paper towels, bath towels, microwave, blender, soap and even wine glasses with a cork screw to open the bottles. I could list more but if anything was missing, which it is not, the largest Walmart ever built in about a mile away. Close by are Publix, Walmart and WinnDixie grocery stores. Nearby dinning includes IHOP, Steak & Shake, Outback, Village Inn, Starbucks and many others. A nearby gas station/convenience store, WaWa, was selling unleaded gas for $2.05 per gallon and had great fresh coffee. This condo has a swimming pool, hot tub, fishing/boat pier and use of gas grills for a BBQ if you are so inclined. Plenty of free parking with a unloading/loading area near the elevators. Inside the condo you have free local telephone calls, a secure DSL Internet connection and cable TV. TVs are located in the living area and in the bedroom. Note the owner has tiled the balcony as well as the condo floors. We dined on the balcony with outstanding sunset views. Gertrude made the reservation process easy and the keyless entry system to the condo was a plus. By the way Gertrude even sent us an email during our stay to let us know about a free nearby "street fair and public market." It is one thing to rent a nice condo but quite another thing to have the person you rent from take a "personal interest" in making sure all your questions are answered. A big "Thank You" to Gertrude for making our stay very relaxing and worry free. By the way the War Veterans Park is less than a mile away and offers a boat ramp, picnic areas, public restrooms as well as many great fishing spots. The Bay Pines VA Hospital is about a mile away and this condo is great for a disabled person. We are already planning a return trip with family members since Gertrude said she has a two bedroom unit in addition to this one. Condo unit 112 is great! If you are looking for relaxation my wife and I recommend this condo!

Owner's Response: Mr. Ed, thank you so much for taking the time to write a detailed review. I also want to thank you for giving me permission to publish the stunning photographs you took while you were visiting Boca Ciega Resort. I wished you could have seen the other one bedrooms that I rent. They too have been remodeled and have spectacular views on the marina side. It is great to hear my hard work in the condos I rent have finally paid off. I am so happy you and your wife enjoyed your holiday. We look forward to meeting you on your return. Gertrude Foster
