Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Indian Rocks Beach - Iron Horse Condiminium

3 bedroom, 2 bath, sleeps 8

Welcome to Indian Rocks Beach where the saying “Sand between your toes” is not just on a postcard. As you walk through this beautifully appointed 1600 square foot condo and enter the living room the first thing you see is the stunning view of the Gulf of Mexico in all its crystal blue glory. This quiet 3 bedroom, 2 bath retreat is yours to relax in during your stay.

The well appointed master bedroom is the first room as you enter the condo. It offers a comfortable king size bed, walk in closet and en-suite. There is plenty of drawer space for storage and a TV with cable. The bathroom features a walk in shower, two granite vanities and a separate water closet. Down the hall the 2nd bedroom has 4 sturdy bunk beds. There is a closet, drawers for storage and TV/DVD with cable. The third bedroom provides a comfortable queen size bed with its own closet and drawers for storage. These 2 rooms share the second bathroom that has a tub/shower combination and granite vanity.

The top floor beach side patio offers a dining table for 6 as well as a glider for 2 and stunning views. The patio provides the perfect place for morning coffee, quick lunch or evening drinks and the sunsets are magnificent. If you are lucky you might be able to witness a thunderstorm roll through the dark skies. The kitchen with with granite counter tops has plenty of food preparation space and cooking utensils for everything from an easy family meal to a holiday feast. If cooking is off limits on vacation, venture down the street to some local restaurants or get take out. The dining room table sits 8 and there is also a bar with 4 stools. Secured wifi is available and the bar area is a great place to sit and connect with the outside world. In the living room you will sink into comfortable furniture to watch cable TV/DVD or read a book.

The laundry room has a full size washer/dryer and large sink for rinsing the sand out of the bathing suits. A high chair, booster seat and port-a-crib are available.

Around the heated pool you will find plenty of space for lounging. The storage unit has beach chairs, beach umbrella, sand toys and boogie boards. If you have an active lifestyle this unit offers it all. There are great places to go for a run and bicycle rental is a few miles away. The inter-coastal waterway is a great place for renting boats and paddle boards. A local water park will be complete early 2015. The gulf is kid friendly with a shallow entry and sandbar accessible at low tide. Walks on the beach are a favorite past time and be sure to take something to carry the shells you find along the way. Come and relax in your home away from home and create memories to last a lifetime.

About Michele Small

We bought this property as a family. Jim and Jill are retired and have lived in Tampa since 1980. They enjoy traveling and spending time at their grandkids sporting events.

John and Michele are almost empty nesters and Michele has grown up here since 1980. We settled in Tampa in 1996 where we have raised our family.

Michele Small purchased this condo in 2003

Why Michele Small chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The first time we all walked through the back door we saw the crystal blue waters and dolphins playing in the waters, we were sold. This beach is used mostly by locals and is not crowded and it is very clean.

What makes this condo unique

We purchased this condo unit in March of 2003 as a family. We wanted someplace close to our home to go to and relax and have a fun place to gather and create lasting memories. This condo offers a respite from hustle and bustle of life and to this day we walk through the doors and look out the back window and the view takes our breath away, we are reminded why we love it here. For many years we have spent summers and family weekends here including many holidays and vacations. It is now time to share it with others to enjoy as well. We hope you enjoy our home away from home as much as we do.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to bring our daughter and her family to the beach for vacation. The condo was just like home! The master was far enough away from the living area that Grandpa and Grandma didn't hear the 4 little ones! The boys loved having their own room..and Mom and Dad too!! The boys loved the pool and looking for crabs in the evening. Everything we needed was at our fingertips!!

The location and layout of the condo were perfect for our family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the listing was exactly as represented and we were very pleased. The location could not have been better and it was great to be right on the beach where we could just put out our chairs in the morning and keep everything down all day without worry! Sunsets were beautiful. The area itself was not crowded which I liked. The pool provided another semi-private opportunity for our kids to play in the water when they were tired of the beach and was visible from the balcony of the condo and from the beach.

The owner was very responsive prior to arrival which helped mitigate any concerns that I had prior to getting there. Information was inside the condo to answer any other questions we could have had. I would definitely stay here again if we travel to the area and would recommend this property to friends and family.

My only suggestions are trivial but may be helpful to you for future as I found I was missing or searching for these things during the week:

A more adequate Stove and Dishwasher - cooking was a long process and I do not believe the dishwasher is cleaning the dishes at all so we hand washed the dishes. The other appliances were perfect

Glass bowls, storage containers, platters for serving appetizers or food would be nice for the nights you cook in

Bathroom rugs (to keep water off the floor - especially when you have kids) and rugs at the doors to keep the sand/water out - yes i like clean/dry floors and my towels hung up.....speaking of which - hooks around the shower especially in the master bath would be great because there is nowhere close to hang your towel by the shower.

It would be great if the ceiling fans on the back porch provided a breeze so you could enjoy sitting out there to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine to watch the sunset. It was miserably hot and with one of the fans not working, it was unbearable to sit out and enjoy the back patio which was sad!

Overall, an amazing vacation! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Sonya, Thank you for your review of our condo. We will be working on the fans this month so they are up and working, and now that our roof has been re-shingled. I will also be checking on the dishwasher as well. I am glad you enjoyed your vacation.

Wonderful Home in Indian Rocks Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our group that consisted to two families with young children! It had everything we needed with some extras that we were not expecting. The home itself is very clean and well-kept. The beds were comfortable and the girls especially loved their own room and spent many evenings cuddled up in their bunk beds, watching a movie. The pool storage was well-stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, wake boards, beach toys, etc., which were a huge hit with our group. The property is so close to the beach and made for a very easy walk down with little kids in tow. The pool was always maintained throughout our stay. We couldn't have asked for a better beach vacation. Thank you so much for sharing your slice of heaven with us! We hope to return again.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! We just came home from our Florida vacation and could not have been happier with the property that we rented. The view was fantastic! It really was just a walk down the stairs and you're on the beach. Exactly what we were looking for. The beach had tons of seashells and the waves were gentle and calm the majority of the time. We had two families staying in the condo (4 adults and 5 kids, with one in a pack'n'play) and we felt like we had plenty of room. The kitchen had the essentials of what we needed for making meals at the condo, and enough seating for everyone at the table. The biggest concern for us was the spiral staircase. After being in the pool or washing our feet off from being at the beach, the staircase was a little treacherous, especially for the little ones we had along. We never shared the pool with anyone! We did a few dinners out. I wouldn't recommend John's Pass; it wasn't quite what we were looking for. We headed into Clearwater more and that was more of what we had in mind. I would recommend The Palm, it was about a 15 minute ride into Clearwater. We would highly recommend this condo for your Florida vacation!

Owner's Response: The beach is always plentiful with shells of all shapes and sizes, and can make for great souvenirs or a heavy suitcase. Fortunately, there are many different locations for eating out and enjoying a little beach shopping, I am glad you found a spot to fit your family.
