About Kathy Wilhelm
My husband and I are native to Buffalo New York. The cold winters in Buffalo are what brought us to vacation throughout Florida when our children were younger. We liked the laid back family atmosphere of the Treasure Island area and specifically Sunset Vistas. My husband also enjoys fishing and it is world class in this area. Being able to navigate the beaches with ease was a plus for us. There are times we only use our car for groceries.
Kathy Wilhelm purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Kathy Wilhelm chose Treasure Island
Being small business owners it is difficult to get away for long periods of time and being in the Sunset Vistas rental program was a plus for us. Customer service is very important to us as vacationers and we wanted the same great service for our guests. No punching in a code to get into the condo or having to call an answering service if you need assistance. That's what are staff are for. We love the feeling of being at a hotel with all the amenities, yet, inside you have all of the conveniences of home. For us, it is the best of both worlds. The hotel atmosphere with the convenience and space of a condo and the ability to have breakfast and lunch "in" was an added plus. We have found this a big time and cost savings.
What makes this Condo unique

Perfect family vacation!
This was the perfect size place for my family of 5. My son (15) said the sleeper sofa was comfy :) The view even not centered with the Gulf was spectacular. The area was great for shopping and family bonding time. We rented a boat at Johns Pass and took it out to shell island (highly recommend), we rented jet skis, visited Universal in Orlando (2 hour drive) and utilized the beach rentals for a fun beach day of paddle boarding and relaxing. Pools was great, on site bar was very cool. I can’t say enough about Kathy the property owner. She gave us so many ideas, called and made it all so easy and predictable! Highly recommend and I know we’ll be back!
Wow sounds like you guys were really busy! The trip to Shell island is one of my favorites. Its a great way to explore the waters of the gulf of Mexico. I love that you took the day trip to Orlando, an easy ride and something fun to do while at the beach. I look forward to hearing from you again in the near future and will be happy to add to your list of things to do!
Beautiful place , awesome beach
Everything I expected and more. Room, location, and beach outstanding
We are pleased that our condo met your expectations and we hope that you will return soon for more R and R on the beach!
Trip to treasure island
We had a good time. I wish we had a better view of the ocean but we still had fun.
I am happy that you had fun and enjoyed the beach and all there is to do in the area. As far as the view goes, my photos are very accurate and all were taken from the balcony. I'm thinking that perhaps my other condo may have been what you were looking for. Please keep my number handy and call me directly next time and I can review that property as well with you. It is listed on VRBO as property # 190670. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I appreciate all of the input.
great weekend trip
great location with a fantastic view! Kathy made the process super easy and even sent over a list of local things to check out! Condo had everything we needed and having assigned parking was great! It was our first visit to the gulf side, but will not be the last!
Yay! I knew you would love the gulf coast. I am so happy that you enjoyed our condo and are planning another trip back!
We enjoyed our stay. The pool and beach were great! The condo wasn’t ready until 5 pm even though check-in was at 4:00. They did give us a $25 credit to use at the cafe which was nice to make up for it. Kathy was helpful and very thorough.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I did check with the management and found that my condo was not available until 4:45. I am so sorry about that. I am glad they gave you a voucher! As an owner we do not like things like this to happen but are glad that our on site staff were able to take care of the situation quickly. Thank you again for your patience.
A very nice getaway
The property is nice and the staff was very friendly and attentive, always welcoming and accommodating when we asked for extra bath towels, blankets, etc.
The unit itself is smaller than I expected based on my interpretations of the photos but nothing that really bothered us at all.
The personal parking space was a great perk! No getting into a blazing hot vehicle.
The Tiki Bar was great and much time was spent hanging out there at the end of a beach or pool day.
Overall it was a pleasant experience and a relaxing vacation.
Thank you for your kind words. I am glad that you enjoyed yourselves. So sorry that you thought it was a bit larger. It is difficult to get great photos and include everything in them which is why VRBO makes owners post the square footage on the site for guests to review. Sounds to me like you enjoyed the amenities like the Tiki Bar. I am in agreement that it is the best way to end a hot beach day. I look forward to having you back sometime real soon!
