We have stayed in the St Pete's / Treasure Island / Indian Rocks area for many years now. We have to have a view of water but have gone from beach front condos to Waterfront villa's now -for the space, privacy, private pool, dock for fishing, cycles and canoes at the villa. And I never cook Lots of fantastic restaurants in easy walking distance. I would never go back to a hotel again. Try Homeaway.com (pay using a pre-paid dollar card) for some inspiration

Thanks guys for all the advice so far - I've seen some suites at Treasure Island - Sunset Vista - which look good and quite like the look of John's Pass
I've got some planning to do...

Sunset vistas is nice if you get an ocean front room on a high floor. They are quite expensive now though

Thanks - have you stayed there? If so did you think the rooms were clean (I've read conflicting reviews) - also is it easy to walk to john's pass or would you take one of those free shuttles (with tip of course! )

we never had any problems with cleanliness - all the times we stayed everything was very clean in the condos. SOME of the Condos there are owned by people and rented out so nothing to do with Sunset Vistas any more so I cannot comment on those.
We preferred high rooms, Gulf front and West side so not above the pool. Really great place and about 20mins walk to Johns' pass. We would often walk there along the beach and come back the road way (all incredibly safe and well lit). With the dollar rate not so good we found their prices too high so opted for House rentals and haven't gone back. Have very fond memories of it for our introduction to the area. I think they do a dscount code for facebook friends but best to ask them:
facebook/SunsetVistas

If you want cheaper then how about St Petes, Clearwater?
Ive stayed there a few times Minnie - one of my favourites. Beach club is lovely

A few suggestions for St Pete Beach.

The Sirata Beach, The Alden Resort, Beach House Suites by Don Cesar or the Bon Aire Resort.

We book a villa every visit and the most cooking that we do is to warm up takeaway in the microwave and the toaster.
