Overview

About the property

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.

Our stay at the Playful Porpoise was truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family vacation of 5. I couldn’t ask for a better location; right on the beach. The condo was stocked with all the necessities: kitchen supplies, towels, washer and dryer, beach toys and chairs.... I would totally recommend this property for a relaxing low key family vacation!!

The condo was clean, spacious and well stocked. Steps to the beach as well as plenty of dining and shopping options directly across the street. Highly recommend this spot - You won't be disappointed.

Quaint Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the Playful Porpoise! IRB is a hidden, Gulf gem and we enjoyed staying at the PP very much. It is clean, well stocked and has a beach view/access. There are several local restaurants that are easily accessible within walking distance. Clearwater Beach is only a 15 min drive away.

The one recommendation we would have for the owner would be to update the beach chairs/umbrellas as they are older and not very sturdy/supportive for adult sized bodies.

Thank you Karl!!

The playful porpoise was a very inviting, clean vacation rental. Plenty of beach supplies. Kitchen was stocked, we only needed food. Great location as well, right in the middle of everything
