Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

New inside with gorgeous amenities and appointments throughout make this luxurious 3 bedroom and 2 full bathroom condo the focal point for your next great vacation. Sleeps eight, and from its top floor penthouse location, you can actually view the sunset from the kitchen, dining room, living room and balcony. You can also enjoy the sunset from the hot tub, tennis courts, pool and of course - the beach! Reef Club is a 5-story 55-unit condominium complex with assigned private parking, a beach-side heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor BBQ grills and a fabulous beach. Reef Club is centrally located between Clearwater Beach to the north and St. Petersburg Beach to the south. You are only 30-40 minutes from Tampa International Airport and Busch Gardens. Disney World, Universal Studios and world famous Orlando attractions are just 90 minutes away. Our penthouse beachfront condo is a great place to relax and vacation. A great location for all. Make it your place for your next great vacation!

Don't need a car - extended stay convenience: Great feature - you can take a shuttle from the Tampa Airport to Indian Rocks Beach - about $32.

Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach (Treasure Island) to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price!

Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your digital security code.

AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long.

Again, shuttle to the airport and great trolley on the beach . . . and Gulf Boulevard is great to walk and cruise.

Rentals and packed sand: There are many rentals within 5 miles: skiing, para-sailing, jet-ski - check out the owner's webpage a few lines below for even more information, phone numbers and links . . . . also . . .

The Indian Rocks visitation center is located at the corner of Walsingham and Gulf Boulevard - 4 blocks away - and you can get coupons, flyers and the best price on tickets to events (including Busch Gardens) and just a great place to find out what is 'happening' while you are there.

The packed sand is great for jogging, bike riding or just walking on the beach.

Watch the Seabirds at eye level as they glide by your top floor Reef Club vacation penthouse.

Restaurants and places: Best ice cream in the world! Candy Kitchen - they make their own - go there. They have the same ice cream at 'Candy Kitchen' (one block north of Reef Club . . . just the portions are not as large :).

Salt Rock Grill - atmosphere! Great value - surf & turf - more . . . go before 5:00 for extraordinary prices!

Crabby Bill's - Seafood - always happening. Within very close walking distance - TJ's, Keegan's, Guppys and PJ's Oyster Bar - all good.

THE Pub - down the street. Dine at the outside bar evenings and watch the Intracoastal.

TJ's Italian Pizza, Picata and Sea Bass. Maggie Mae's Sunrise Cafe - in Sand Key for great breakfasts.

Try the bagel Tuna for lunch at Lighthouse Doughnuts - and of course the donuts and breakfasts are great! Canadians say 'We had their bagel sandwiches and they were better than the Canadian ones!'

All the above located on Gulf Boulevard.

About Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez

As a family of five, Charlotte and I have vacationed in Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, South America - etc. and all great wonderful vacation locations. However our best - stress free and quality vacations have been at the Gulf Beaches of Florida. The location is always ideal for weather, activities, friends and family . . . and we don't feel like we had to out of the country to vacation - we didn't! Great location and easy to get to and so much to do. Pro sports teams in Tampa, Busch Gardens, Gulf beauty and of course we would always go to Orlando and enjoy everything Orlando has to offer - from Disney, to Sea World to the Orlando Magic. This is simply a great location and this condo is beachfront - penthouse - 30 minutes from Tampa airport . . . what more can you say. Getting here is easy for Western Hemisphere and European vacationers and you can start your vacation right away. We have enjoyed this area immensely.

Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez chose Indian Rocks Beach

Beachfront location top floor ocean view penthouse 30 minutes from Tampa International with Tampa/Orlando at your fingertips. Great people during our stays. We like the people we have met. Great location to fly to - great location to drive to - and great location to center your vacation from. We particularly like the Reef Club. It has a design and accommodations that welcome guests and allow for a great vacation location.

This condo has three bedrooms and is designed to sleep maximum of 8 people. In the living room there is also a very nice new leather couch with a comfortable queen sleeper sofa. Two HDTVs including 42' Panasonic Plasma in Living Room and 37' Insignia HD in Master Bedroom. High Speed wireless Internet.

Restaurants and places: Best ice cream in the world! Candy Kitchen - they make their own - go there. They have the same ice cream at 'Candy Kitchen' (one block north of Reef Club . . . just the portions are not as large :). Salt Rock Grill - atmosphere! Great value - surf & turf - more . . . go before 5:00 for extraordinary prices! Crabby Bill's - Seafood - always happening. THE Pub - down the street. Dine at the outside bar evenings and watch the Intracoastal. TJ's Italian Pizza, Picata and Sea Bass. Maggie Mae's Sunrise Cafe - in Sand Key for great breakfasts. Try the bagel Tuna for lunch at Lighthouse Doughnuts - and of course the donuts and breakfasts are great! Our Canadian friends say 'We had their bagel sandwiches and they were better than the Canadian ones! All the above located within walking distance on Gulf Boulevard.

What makes this condo unique

There is a lot. Penthouse beachfront, sunset while watching seagulls coast by, hot tub, pool, volleyball, gas grills - bike rides on the beach. Don't laugh - but the thing that did it for me was watching the sun set from the top floor balcony while enjoying an excellent carbernet and a McDonald's double cheeseburger. (It had been a long day). TJ's is 3 minutes north and excellent. Crabby Bills a 5 minute walk away - and great places to eat. Resting with the ocean breeze . . .

Don't need a car - extended stay convenience: Great feature - you can take a shuttle from the Tampa Airport to Indian Rocks Beach - about $26. Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price! Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your security code.

Again, great shuttle to the airport and great trolley on the beach.

Our home away from home....

  • 5 of 5

It's always a pleasure to "come home" to this beautiful condo every year. The view and soothing sounds of the ocean are just what we need to rest and rejuvenate. Numerous restaurants are nearby and delicious! The home is immaculate, well stocked, and convenient. You couldn't ask for any more attentive and gracious owners than Rick and Charlotte...we've been vacationing here for so many years they seem like family! Looking forward to many years to come.

Thanks, the Vencels

Great location to enjoy amazing sunsets with family

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Rick and Charlotte, are very responsive. They are also great communicators so you know what to expect when you arrive and how to smoothly go through check in and check out.

The building is older but seems to be well maintained. The condo was in good shape and outfitted to make our vacation very enjoyable. We love to cook so having a nice kitchen, as this unit does, is important to us.

Being on the top floor and facing straight west provided some of the most spectacular sunset viewings I have seen. You just can't beat the beauty of sunset happy hour from this location. This condo is also in walking distance to restaurants and an ice cream stand, which my children loved.

This condo is amazing! Beautiful gulf views from the master as well as kitchen and living room. Nicely decorated with a great kitchen. Zero complaints!

Owner's Response: This family was great to have as guests and would love to have them back. We had our new "Gold Series" Whirlpool Refrigerator go bad (slowly defrost) and had if fixed within 24 hours (needed a new board) and they called me and we coordinated with our appliance repair after finding the part (separate repair guy - and the refrigerator just went over it's three year warranty). Maybe more than you wanted to know but they were very nice and gracious to provide the five star rating. Quality family and thank you, Rick and Charlotte
