Villas on Point Brittany – a Bayway Gem

When I mention the Villas on Point Brittany, most locals assume that I’m talking about one of the high-rise condos situated on the west and south edges of the Point on the south side of the Pinellas Bayway. While these condos are quite nice and feature spectacular views, they are designated “over-55” and obviously have a limited buyer audience. The Villas, on the other hand, are located along the east and south edges of the Point and include residents of all ages, older and younger, that enjoy the waterfront amenities such as the resort-sized geothermal-heated pool and the fishing pier with cleaning station.
The Villas on Point Brittany is a gated community of 80 condos clustered in 8- or 12-unit two-story buildings. Most of the condos are waterfront on Cat’s Point Channel, have detached oversized one-car garages, and/or deeded deep-water boat slips between 28′ and 50′ long. The common areas are beautifully maintained under the oversight of various committees that report to the Board of Directors, such as the Garden Committee and the Dock Committee.
Probably the best thing about the Villas is the location on the Pinellas Bayway. By car it has quick access to the freeway for an easy drive downtown, north to Tampa or TIA, or south across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge to Sarasota – all within a 30-40 minute drive. Yet the Villas are only 15 minutes to famous beaches, including Fort de Soto and Pass-a-Grille. By boat, minutes to Boca Ciega Bay, the city of Gulfport or the Intracoastal Waterway to the north, or Tampa Bay and Gulf access to the south.
