How is life at Starlight Tower?
In a word "amazing"! From sunrise to sunset looking out your windows and balconies at the Gulf and the non stop activities at the beach with people swimming, surfing, sailing, parasailing, sunbathing, fishing and certainly the birds who are the best fishermen in the area! But especially the sunsets where you see the sun dipping ever so slowly and leisurely disappearing burning red in the Gulf's waters and the sky colored by the divine palette on all hues of red and blue you feel at peace and content as if somehow entered paradise for a few precious moments. Oh yes, life is good here.

Our Location from Google Earth

Aerial view of Starlight Tower Aerial from Google Earth on the North End of St Pete Beach Florida next to Blind Pass
Every cart postal of St Pete Beach you buy, two buildings stand out: a pink on the South side and a white on the North side. On the south side the pink, is the most luxurious and historic hotel of the area Don CeSar Beach Resort a Loews Hotel and on the north side the white is us, Starlight Tower! Don CeSar was build in 1926 and its construction completed two years later with grand opening in 1928. The Don is one of eight hotels in Florida that is listed on the National Trust for Historical Preservation, Historic Hotels of America.


History
in brief:  
Our building was built in 1958 and our relationship with Don CeSar is that both of us respectively adorn the North and South side of St Pete Beach the two most beautiful landmark buildings, one pink the other white boasting solid construction with steel and concrete and not pre-fabricated materials.

Remarkable  solid structures that not only have endured the passing of decades and occasional punishment from our tropical weather which is a small price to pay living right on the Gulf but even today they look and feel brand new...

In our lobby embedded on the wall is a plaque by the talented and highly artistic master masons that were proud to participate in the construction of the building. Shortly we will add an archives section with memorable pictures taken during our construction who puts to shame today's ready-made structures.
Note: The happy bride in front of the Don where her wedding reception was given on May 11, 2011, became a Starlighter when she was ten years old.
       

About this website:
The website was voluntarily created in September 2006 by one of the owners, Louisa Simos, is privately funded and maintained by her and the purpose is twofold:

  To give the owners a private meeting place at a section of this site with secure environment password protected where we will be able to exchange ideas since our common goal is to preserve and maintain the high standards and integrity of the most beautiful and desirable apartment building in St Pete Beach which we are all proud to call HOME regardless if we live here full time or part time. I believe that having an Internet presence of our property is an asset to the co-op's shareholders and Board of Directors in disseminating information securely and instantly to all at our protected environment and away from public view especially now that our restoration project is about to begin (it has been completed now that the site is getting updated!) and owners will be anxious for updated information throughout the process.
