About the property

DIRECT GULF FRONT! Indian Shores 3 Bedrooms 2 Full Baths Heated Pool & Hot Tub

This direct Gulf-front three-bedroom, two-bath unit is located on the 6th floor of the popular and family-friendly Sand Castle I Condominiums. A host of amenities make these units a favorite of vacationers in the know! Enjoy a heated Gulfside pool and outdoor jacuzzi, private beach access, assigned covered parking, spectacular sunsets, and easy access to the many beachside attractions between St. Pete Beach to the south and Clearwater Beach to the north. A stay at The Sand Castle means you won't miss a thing while enjoying gorgeous accommodations for your family!

The focal point of this lovely unit is the large balcony overlooking the beach. It will quickly become your favorite place to enjoy a private viewing of our gorgeous Gulf of Mexico sunsets, or to share breakfast before heading out to the sun and sand below. Both the living room and master bedroom share access to the balcony, which means the views are spectacular from much of the unit.

However, guests staying in one of the other two bedrooms may argue that theirs is the best view! Both of these bedrooms feature gorgeous views over the intracoastal waterway. The perpetual activity of boats traveling the waterway and sparkling lights at night offer endless entertainment.

In addition to access to the balcony's lovely Gulf views, the master bedroom features a New king bed and flat-panel TV. One of the intracoastal bedrooms features two New queen beds and a flat-panel TV, while the third bedroom has a queen and a mounted flat screen with a pocket door to the Kitchen.

Tile floors, a beautifully updated kitchen, remodeled bathrooms, and comfortable furnishings round out the experience. You won't find a better place to spend your Indian Shores beachfront vacation!

Sand Castle does not allow trailer parking on site. If you have a trailer please Reserve Uncovered Vehicle Storage from a nearby facility. Thank you

Beautiful and Serene

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing time at Indian Shores. The condo was incredibly clean, had all the comforts of home, including a well stocked kitchen. We just loved it. The facility is very nice, quiet, and convenient to the beach and surrounding area. The only reason I would give a 4 instead of a 5 for review is because of the elevator struggles. We were on the 6th floor and don't mind the stairs at times, but 6 floors up and down several times a day, especially when carrying a large load, is a bit much. During most of our stay, only one elevator was working and it's a very large building with a lot of units, so getting up or down often involved waiting for several elevator loads to come and go before you had your turn. The unit was perfect and has an amazing view, but the elevator problem should really be addressed. Here's a quick tip for future renters: Do Not leave your beach umbrellas, chairs, tents, etc on the beach overnight. There is a warning in the welcome book, but many ignored it and I personally watched police authorities confiscate many items from the beach late one night while sitting on the balcony. Luckily, we had read the guest book and had our belongings back in the condo at night. So, regardless of what you see others doing, don't take the risk. They will and do patrol every night and will take it all away. If you are looking for a spacious space to stay with all the comforts of home, beautiful views, sunsets, fabulous eateries, an amazing salt water hot tub, refreshing pool, and a quiet, relaxing beach, this is the place for you. We will be back.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Spent Spring Break here with the family. Vacation was wonderful and the unit was very nice. It was great for the 6 of us; plenty of room and nicely decorated. I have no complaints and would stay here again without hesitation.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Sand Castle offers a lot - a prime location on Sand Key, great beach, front row seat for fabulous sunsets, access to dining, and, oh, by the way, very comfortable accommodations. We're repeat visitors, so we knew what to expect. We were pleased to see the owners are working hard to keep their unit in prime condition. We appreciated the amenities and look forward to returning.
