Penthouse 3 Bedroom with Private Roof-Top Deck
2245 West Gulf Drive, Pointe Santo #C43 Views
Built in 1977, Pointe Santo was designed as a mini-resort.
Spread over five buildings with 600′ along Gulf of Mexico beach, it is centered around a courtyard with tropical lagoon.
With 141 units in total, the floor plans vary from 1 bedroom to 3 bedrooms.
Top-floor units, like this one, also have private roof-top decks.
The buildings all have elevators.
The parking areas are pavers. Each owner has an assigned parking spot (plenty of guest parking available too).
Owners each also have an exterior storage closet for housing items that don’t need air conditioning (beach toys & sporting goods, etc.)
Bridges go over the central lagoon onto a mini-island that houses the clubhouse with upper sun deck and hot tub.
Other amenities include tennis, shuffleboard, and bbq areas, all accessible from the paver walkways.
An on-site management office, Wi-Fi, and children’s programs offered five days a week at the clubhouse are additional perks.
#C43 is a top-floor decorator furnished 3-bedroom 2-bath unit with private upper sundeck, accessible from a spiral staircase on the screened balcony.
The sundeck (~324 sq. ft.) adds to the space. Total air conditioned space is ~1405 sq. ft. Including the sundeck, total sq. ft. = ~1834.
The panoramic views of the gulf from the deck are breathtaking from sunrise to sunset.
The kitchen was opened during renovation and now features bright white cabinetry with additional storage and a central island with breakfast bar seating.
The gulf view is visible from the front door, right through the condo.
The great room or combo living dining area has sliders to the balcony as does the master suite.
Windows in the entire complex are impact-rated. That was a proactive community update some years ago for both safety and to reduce insurance costs.
With tile floors throughout, the condo was professionally decorated and features some wonderful and colorful art.
It also has a stack washer/dryer.
The master has en suite bath with a wall of owners’ closets in addition to space for use by seasonal renters.
Two hot-water heaters and the air handler are in one of these closets too. (HVAC dated 2016.)
The jetted tub also has shower. This room has a king-sized bed.
The two guest rooms are accessible from a hallway off the kitchen. There is a guest bath here too, with shower.
The first guest room has two single-beds with storage below.
The back guest room has queen-sized bed.
All of the bedrooms have flat-screen TV’s. Another is in the living room. These convey along with the furnishings.
(Sofa in living room is a sleep sofa.)
Currently enrolled in Royal Shell Vacations rental program (weekly rentals permitted), it grossed $78K in 2017 with the equivalent of $12K in owner use too. Potential probably $100K annually depending on owner use.
Future rental bookings must be honored. As of January 4, 2019, bookings for 2019 total $34,770.
The complex is non-smoking. It allows owners to bring a single small pet.
A community-wide concrete restoration project is underway. Two buildings were done late summer/fall 2017, while Buildings D and E are scheduled for 2018. This building, Building C, is scheduled for 2019. The current quarterly condo fee ($3,983) includes a reserve assessment for that project.
