About the property

Large Beach Front 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Condo


Fiddler on the Beach is a small, tranquill complex located directly on the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Lush palms and landscaping surround the entire building and large pool area.

Our location and views can't be beat! Come relax and enjoy our spacious two story town home model located on the second and third floors. You don't even need to use the elevators but they are there if you wish. On our main floor is the kitchen, dining, living area and three piece bathroom and upstairs are 2 bedrooms and another full three piece bathroom. Families love this layout which allows young children a quite bedtime and teens their own space to hang out, watch movies and play games. It's clean, bright and airy with white wicker furniture and hardwood floors. Especially nice is how quiet this particular unit is as we have an corner unit with no others above. After a day on the beach relax on your private second floor balcony surrounded by palm trees swaying in the ocean breezes while taking in the sights and sounds of tropical birds and watching the sun disappear into the Gulf!

Several cafes, bars and restaurants are within walking distance and many more are accessible by hopping on the Suncoast Beach Trolley where you can explore all of the unique beach communities from its beginning at Park Street Terminal in downtown Clearwater to 75th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard. Check out the shops on Corey Avenue, enjoy the sights at John's Pass Village. If dining in is for you, you will love the fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops.

Fiddler on the Beach is just 30 minutes from Tampa Airport 20 minutes from St Petersburg airport and just 20 minutes off I-275.

Why Julie Prather chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Julie,

Sorry for the delayed response, but we've been having too much fun! The condo was clean and in the condition we expected. The extra soap and toilet paper were also a very nice touch. Having traveled down here for several years in a row we really appreciate those added conveniences. I have noticed the maintenance man working on something every day we've been here, including Sunday.

We previously stayed at a condo on the intercoastal side of Gulf and I don't think we'll ever go back. Having the beach just steps away really makes this a special place. We watched dolphins last night and this morning and have spent significantly more time on the beach than in years past.

We couldn't be happier with your beach house!

Thank you,


Hi Julie,

Oh my gosh, this has been our best vacation ever and that includes the other five times we've visited this area! We rented a paddle board and followed dolphins three times. I went out about fifty yards past the buoys this morning while following a school of tarpin which was amazing (and apparently kind of dangerous). We have has so much fun and don't want to leave!

We can't wait to come back. Thank you so much. We have one more full day on the beach and we have truly enjoyed it. I'll send you some photos after we get back.

Thanks again,

Fabulous condo - end unit - very quiet and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We just got home from a great vacation week at Indian Rocks Beach. This was our first trip to the area so it is hard to book something when you are not familiar with the area. This condo did not dissapoint at all. Everything was just as stated and very clean. The views were really awesome and the beaches were clean and not crowded at all. We also spent some time at the pool which was also very nice. I would definitely stay here again in the future! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Fabulous condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

I looked at many VRBO possibilities in the greater Tampa area that were directly on the beach, a smaller condo complex, an end unit, and with two single beds in the second bedroom so that our son and daughter, 18 and 22, didn't have to share a bed. Julie's condo was our first choice, and it lived up to our high expectations. Immaculate, lovely, quiet, great location, well-kept grounds -- everything one needs for a great Florida beach vacation.

My husband & I came tbo Indian Rocks for our first visit. Julie was perfect to work with on our accomendations. The description and decor was the right on. Very clean and quiet. Loved the beach and view. We were very pleased. We did have a chance to talk to Gail (one of the complex managers), she was very helpful with suggests where to eat and entertainment and easy to work with . Also the tenants or renters where very friendly!!! We would highly recommend renting this location again. We will definately go back, Thank you Julie!!!

Indian Rocks Gem

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Clearwater area and we absolutely loved it! The Indian Rocks area is wonderful - very quiet and not too crowded. Julie's condo is just about perfect! It is beautifully decorated and the view is amazing! We loved being on the end of the complex, away from the pool noise. Also, there is no one above the unit! Julie, along with Janet and Matt (complex managers) are wonderful to work with! We will definitely be back!

The condo was very comfortable and clean. up to date appliances and décor. Very comfortable master bed. The only thing I would add would be a personal washer and dryer. Cable TX in living room was static at times (cable co problem?). Owner very helpful responded quickly to all questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, clean and comfortable is what I strive for. We have had the condo for just over a year now and are making improvements with each visit. I'm glad you noticed the new memory foam topper in the master bedroom. We also purchased a new queen bed for the second bedroom last winter. On our next visit in the fall a washer and dryer are being installed. In the meantime there are laundry facilities in the building. The Fiddler does have basic cable only so not all channels are available, however on some if you go up on down one you will find the same channel with clear reception. We also have a good selection of movies in the TV cabinet.

Amazing Vacation Spot!!! Will come again :)

  • 5 of 5

We had amazing stay at the Fiddler on the Beach. The beautiful nightly sunsets, dolphin shows and endless beach were more then we could ask for! The owners were great to deal with and everything was as promised. The condo was very nicely decorated, extremely clean and well equipped with everything we needed and more! Grounds and pool were quiet and well maintained. We especially enjoyed the restaurants and local outdoor bars all in walking distance. We will definitely be coming back and have recommended this spot to our family and friends. Thank you Julie for a wonderful stay!
