About Jeffrey Solomon
Sharda and I take great joy in this unique property a - piece of Florida's heritage! On the bay where the beach meets the bay. Courteous and friendly. When you are here you are at home. HERE IS THE EXPERIENCE WE AIM TO PROVIDE FOR YOU: Think Bee Wop a Doo Dah. Think 60's retro with unique themed condominiums in a small private Florida jungle retreat. Take a break from the large, faceless, Mc Hotels. At Whispers you will NOT lose your family between the lobby and the pool! This is old time Florida. Escape the swarms of strangers, crowded pools and relax in the ambiance of a more genteel environment. Lush jungle gardens and huge trees to shade you, and cool breezes fan you by the pool. Does this sound right for you? Then you will love a Florida Heritage vacation, a blast from the past. The Bee Wop a Doo Dah. We will take you back to the days when the family piled into Dads Buick Roadmaster 'Woodie' and headed south for an adventure to the pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Relive an era before the large 'Box Hotels' popped up on every corner. Before McDonalds. An era when the corner soda shop was the place to hang out! This blast from the past has just 8 units set in a lush tropical garden. Every unit has a unique themed decor, such as Oriental, Africa, Hawaii, England etc. This is real honest to goodness American apple pie, old time, down home Florida with all its eccentricities. Whispers is a very small and extremely private bay front property. Lose your cares. Feel human again! Your patronage helps us preserve our Vintage Florida Heritage. The property is updated while still preserving the essential elements, colors and feel of our Florida heritage.

Location to beach was great, loved the pool and fishing pier!! Close to grocery store.
Thank you for your review.
Sharda and I appreciate your kind words!
Wishing you a great summer!
Beautiful clean 2 block walk to the beach!
I have been staying here for 3 years and have never been disappointed. I love the theme inspired rooms. The owners Jeffrey and Sharda take pride in their property and it shows! 5 stars here and you wont be disappointed
Thank you so much for your kind review.
Sharda and I appreciate the many times you have stayed with us at Whispers.
Maintaining a property like Whispers in the original character of a Florida retro resort does take a lot of dedication and it is nice to have our efforts recognized by you.
Thank you so much!
Jeffery and Sharda
Treasure island where vacation memories were made
It’s not what I expected at first but it grows on you and became I really nice place with wonderful people working there
Whispers is rather unique. There are very few Traditional Florida Resorts left. By that I mean we have preserved the look and the feel of the original 1960s era property - and we are a RETRO RESORT and it gives you a genuine experience of what Florida was like back then.
Probably your parents era and for some guests their grandparents era.
I am delighted that you liked it and of course Sharda and I would love to welcome you back.
We both work hard to keep the image and 60's charm alive. That is in spite of the call of developers who want to build a "McCondo" on this prime waterfront location.
So far for 20 years we have resisted the call!
Jeffrey and Sharda
We had a good time, Jeffery was very helpful.
Hi Ginger and Dave,
Thank you so much for your kind words.
I appreciate it and thanks for taking good care of the condo during your stay here.
Attentive Owner & Excellent Price
We met the owners on day one, and they were very friendly. They clued us in on all of the local events. You cannot beat this location, and the view from the pool and dock.
I would definitely stay again.
Thanks so much Chris.
I enjoyed meeting you and I hope that the fishing off the dock was successful.
It was great having you guys stay - we really look forward to meeting you again.
Jeffrey and Sharda
Cute little property
Needs some updates and cleaning but it was cute. Our sheets and bathroom were clean but our floors and kitchen didn't seem to have been cleaned, it was quite dirty. The owner was very friendly, as soon as we called for something that was not working in the bathroom he came immediately and fixed it. The beach is a bit of a walk but we like to walk so it didn't bother us. We used the pool once and it was very nice, also the dock is a plus.
The premise of Whispers is a RETRO resort - for which updates would be like asking Disney to remove cartoon characters! : )
Whispers is a Retro Florida Resort. We have lovingly preserved the look and the feel of the 1960's Florida Experience.
The unique idea of staying At Whispers is to get away from a chrome and glass "Mc Motel" and to enjoy the experience of a throw back in time. That is what Florida is all about and that is why Disney and Universal are so popular - its all about the fantasy and the unique experience.
Whispers takes you back to the 1960's, the days of the corner soda shop, and grandpa taking his old "woodie" station wagon down to Florida and the kids arguing all the way down who is better - the Beach Boys or the Beatles or do you still prefer Elvis?
We have preserved the pinks and blues and greens of the original bathroom fittings, and the Formica counter tops and the retro decor - we will never trash these - they don't make them anymore.
Guests who want the unique Whispers experience not only appreciate what we are doing they LOVE IT!
The updated facilities include:
Up to code electricity, water, central air conditioning and heating as well as the electronics, such as flat screen TV's in every room, microwave ovens and the full full kitchens have modern appliances, the heated pool, and free Wi Fi, these are a nod to the present needs of our guests - while the look and the feel of Whispers is still strictly the 1960's!
Every condo has a unique theme - that is something you will not find anywhere else. We have the English Cottage, the Hawaii and Santa Fe Suites, Africa and Oriental etc. etc. - THE STAY IS THE EXPERIENCE!
Come with the right frame of mind and you will have a BLAST FROM THE PAST!
One block to shops, dining, supermarket, bars, trolley bus, beach entrance,
Close to Johns Pass Village - Historic area for shopping, dining and entertainment. Dolphin Cruises, Boat, Jet Ski, Scooter and Bike rentals.
Close to Pinellas Trail for biking.
