Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Indian Rocks Beach - Playful Porpoise

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath top floor Condo with view of the Gulf

Listen to the waves lap at the sugar sand beach from the private balcony of this spacious and beautiful Gulf side 2/2 condo centrally located in pretty Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. A great get away spot.

The Playful Porpoise is a cheerful 3rd floor unit in a small and well maintained building with lovely grounds, reserved covered parking, and a pool that is the perfect size to cool off in after an unforgettable day at the beach. (Please note this building does not have an elevator so access is via stairs). Beach towels, folding chairs, umbrellas, floats and toys are all provided for your use and are conveniently stored in a common room next to the pool. After your swim it's time to choose which wonderful restaurant to try. There are quite a few within easy walking distance, shops too! Or enjoy staying in! This non-smoking condo is a happy and beachy, roomy spot with plenty of space for up to six to spread out. People only please, no pets are allowed.

The master bedroom is decorated in a fun 'vintage beach' décor with a comfy queen bed, plenty of drawer storage, and a new wall-mounted flat screen TV. The walk in closet holds beach towels and plenty of extra bedding, yet there is ample room for all your things. The private bathroom has a large walk-in shower with glass doors.

The 'surf style' guest bedroom can accommodate a variety of sleeping arrangements, with a bunk bed on one wall that has a twin bed on top and a full bed on the bottom. On the other side of the room is a twin day bed. The second full bathroom is just outside the guest bedroom and also has plenty of storage and a tub/shower combination.

Continue down the hall past the linen closet filled with fluffy towels then past the handy washer/dryer stack and the space opens to a wonderfully layed out kitchen/dining/living room area. The bright clean kitchen is fully equipped, including a refrigerator with in the door water and ice, a new dishwasher, and tons of dishes and glassware.

Sit at the counter or dining table to enjoy your meal time conversations. The spacious living area is the perfect spot to sneak in a nap with two recliners and sofa. There is a large flat screen TV. A DVD player and plenty of games are provided for entertaining pleasure. Or continue on through the sliders and have a seat on the balcony to peek out through the palms at what is going on at the beach!

This is why we love the Playful Porpoise and hope you do too.

Everything about our stay was perfect! It was just as advertised. Sitting on the balcony in the morning looking out at the water was beautiful and so relaxing. The location was great. We love to go to Johns Pass on Treasure Island when we're in FL and it was only about a 15 minute drive. Can't wait to book for 2017!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. As Soon as you walk in the place seemed very spacious. The decor was tastefully done. It was well stocked with towels, sheets, pillows & beach towels. As Karl states in his overview you literally need to just bring your swim suit. My family and I had a wonderful time. Since my son has relocated to the St. Petersburg area I'll definitely being staying here again on my many visits. The place is fairly close to anywhere you need to go. Thanks Karl for a beautiful place.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the Playful Porpoise and we were not disappointed! Everything you need is here.....just bring some groceries cause the kitchen is ready to go!! Its a 2 minute walk to the beach after you stop at the locker by the pool to pick through the many beach "goodies". This condo is located a short drive from anything and everything you can imagine needing or wanting, but your staying in a quieter area that's less touristy! And right across the street is the Red Lion pub with the very best food and service!! Thanks Karl for being so easy and professional to work with!! We'll definitely be booking again for next year!

We loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Great property, great location. The property was really well situated. We loved the short walk to the beach, the beach toys, the beach chairs. The only thing I would recommend is getting a larger umbrella. The one in the storage was too small for four people, but we made do. Would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful condo that feels just like home!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this unit! We had such an amazing vacation. The condo was bright and clean. The kitchen was so nicely stocked. We got caught in tropical storm Colin for one day and it was nice to have movies and board games (in abundance!). My advice to future guests is to check every cupboard and closet before going out to buy anything! The locker near the pool was stocked as well. Great beach chairs, noodles and beach mats. The only thing we purchased is a new umbrella which we left in the condo in the main bedroom closet). We have rented condos in Indian rocks for a few years. All The condos have been various sizes, locations and prices and I have to say there was something special about this place. It was a lovely place to call home for a week. There is a bus too right out front, an ice cream across the street as well as restaurants and a surf shop! Ideal location and we are already looking to book again!
