About The Owner

Visiting Indian Rocks Beach was always our favorite destination. This is not just a rental property to us, it is our tenderly cared for home away from home. It is a pleasure to spoil our guests with the best views, service, amenities, and cleanliness. Currently we live in the Chicago area and enjoy providing excellent hospitality to all our guests!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Indian Rocks Beach

We have vacationed in this area many times and fell in love with the spaciousness of the condo, excellent location, and the breathtaking view. This condo provides a wonderful vacation spot for our family to create lasting memories and to let other vacationers experience 1st class beachfront accomodations located in a calming -- peaceful setting.

What makes this condo unique

Top-floor, quiet unit with an amazing direct unobstructed view of ocean. Everytime we arrive, we each discover a new side of ourselves as we explore, walk the beach, swim, fish, sail, and just plain relax in beautiful, laid-back Indian Rocks Beach. Let the warm Florida sun and the cool Gulf of Mexico breezes wash across you, as you let your stress drift away. ?

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just spent a wonderful week here in Indian Rocks. We were joined by our family, grandparents, brother-in-law, wife, and kids. As usual, the weather ended up being great for what we needed. The cooler days we spent enjoying Spring Training ball games. Condo was amazing! Indian Rocks has everything we need. This our third year here and we look forward to returning!

Down from Ohio, 3rd time staying on Indian Rocks Beach, by far the THE BEST UNIT we have stayed in!! Jill with 3 Palms (the management company) answered all of our questions. Unit was very clean, spacious, and well appointed....looked just like the pictures. Would highly recommend this unit!

Outstanding!!! One of the best!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming down to the gulf coast for 12 years now, from Siesta Key, to Madeira Beach, to Indian Rocks. We have stayed in many condos along the way. This is our second stay in this particular building, and our first in unit 405. I can honestly say that this is the nicest condo we have stayed in. It is very spacious, very nicely updated and decorated, and of course the view is astonishing. The master king size bed was very, very comfortable...sometimes that is not so much the case. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking in or for just making your favorite frozen concoction to set and watch the sunset. It is within walking distance to multiple restaurants (I recommend Aqua Prime and the Slyce Pizza Bar or if you want to take a trolly ride or a short drive...the Conch Republic Grille is excellent as well and is only about 5 miles towards Indian Shores.) The cabana was well stocked with plenty of chairs and toys for the beach and was a nice plus. If you are up for some deep sea fishing - Hubbards is the place to go. Great people. Nine of us in our family took the 8 hour private charter and caught 141 fish and had a blast doing it. I have to say that I have worked with some great owners over the years, but the owner and rental agency here were both top notch. Very friendly, informative, and great to work with. I can not think of a single thing I would change about this condo. We had a great week with lots of family staying in the same building (they were all impressed with our condo.) I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a nice updated, well appointed condo. The price is right as well. We will definitely be seeking this one out for our next trip to beautiful Indian Rocks. Thanks :-)

Beyond Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have booked via VRBO and were a bit hesitant as to whether the place would be a nice as pictures/description. It was absolutely perfect for our little family of 4 including two young boys (ages 7 and 4). We visited off peak, so most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. We cooked a full breakfast every morning and ate at the beautiful patio table overlooking the ocean. The views were amazing, I could cook 24 hours a day with that view from the kitchen! The beach/sand is perfect for walks, you can go for miles each way and it's not crowded whatsoever. The kids loved all the pool/beach toys, what a nice extra touch! We wanted to try Indian Rocks because we were looking for a relaxing, low key, vacation to just spend quality time with our kids playing in the pool and beach and we got exactly that! Enjoyed many nearby restaurants...Salt Rock Grill was amazing, we hit the early bird special which was quite a deal for fine dining, Guppys was great but a bit pricey, Slyce pizza was awesome, we spotted dolphins while eating at The Pub and played many many rounds of mini-golf at Smugglers Cove just a few minutes south. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo, we truly hope to be back soon!

Just as Expected

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this beautiful condo. Everything was just as provided on the information above. It's in a very walkable location to restaurants and the CVS. We traveled with another couple, and we all agreed the beds were amazing. Also, if you do travel with other people (snorers), the floor plan provides a lot of privacy. Both bathrooms are between the two bedrooms, making it very quiet. While we didn't cook anything other than breakfast, we found the kitchen to be adequately stocked should you choose to cook other meals. The unit was very clean.

Stayed at condo for 3 weeks in May 2011 and was very disappointed for the price paid

  • 1 of 5

What a disappointment ! Although the pictures of the condoseem to show a luxurious setting be warned ! I have stayed there with my wife for 3 weeks in May 2011 and believe me it is not as luxurious as it seems ! This is what me and my wife discovered : the whole unit is not even soundproof - I could hear my neighbor snor or talk to his wife in the condo next door ! How embarassing ! The beds are so uncomfortable and the box spring squeaks when you move in the master bedroom - hard to be intimate with your wife if you know what I mean. The bedsheets and pillowcases were worn out and had in certain areas bleach stains ! Even the beds in the guest bedrooms are worn out and uncomfortable ! The kitchen cutlery and glasses were so worn out we had to buy a new set. The bathtub caulking was missing in a corner section of one of the guest bathrooms. If you want a quiet luxury condo with safe usable cutlery and glasses this is not the place.

Owner's Response: We do our very best to keep this unit in tip-top shape. This Guest had a walk-thru personal tour of the condo before he rented and he physically tested the bed himself and said it felt comfortable. There were brand new sheets in the hall linen closet and the glasses were recently replaced 2 months ago. Both queen beds in the 2nd bedroom are less than 2 years old and the Master bed has received rave reviews from other guests. Even though the existing cutlery was fine - I have upgraded and added addtional cutlery items.

A Real Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

Roomy, comfortable, well kept and clean with many ammenities. Kitchen staples were basic but who really cooks on vacation? Easy access to barbeque grill, pool and hot tub. Small pet walking area. Undercover parking and elevator access to all floors. Lovely patio for eating breakfast and enjoying sunsets. Owner's locker with all of the beach necessities; chairs, umbrellas, cooler, boogie boards. Close to numerous restaurants, bars, drug store, bakery, post office and right on the beach. Located in a less crowded part of the island than some of the other beach spots but within easy driving distance to the trendier surroundings of Clearwater Beach, Treasure Island and St Pete's Beach if that is what you desire. We relished the uncrowded beach that appeared at times to be almost private. We'll difinitely return!!
