About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Check out our NEW VIDEO and MORE pictures of our condo. Video is third or fourth image while reviewing all photos at top of main page.

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!

Please note we rent Saturday to Saturday unless "off-season" as we can provide better rates that way and accommodate our guests. However, please inquire during "off-season" and as owners of this condo we have more flexibility.

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!

Beautiful condo on a beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give this condo more than 5 stars! The condo is beautiful and well appointed. Beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys and games were already there! The kitchen has everything you need to make complete meals. Or you can go out to the great restaurants nearby. The location is perfectly located for day trips to the amusement parks in Tampa and Orlando or for a fun trip to Tarpon Springs for fabulous Greek food. And the view from the condo's balcony was gorgeous. We saw dolphins playing out in the ocean! We will be back there soon! Thanks to Rick and Charlotte for sharing their piece of paradise with us!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in Rick’s condos for a few years now. Newly refurbished, oceanfront, comfortable relaxing home feel. They have a bottle of wine waiting to greet you and the unit even provided beach chairs and umbrellas to use during the stay. Full week of complete relaxation. We will be back.

Very clean, updated and well stocked unit.

The condo was fantastic. Everything was clean and nicely updated, especially the kitchen. The view was beautiful and all the beach equipment included in the condo was a huge help, especially the beach chairs.

Wonderful Family get-away on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more happy and impressed with this vacation rental. The condo is set-up well for a family or six adults. It is plenty spacious with many of the at-home upgrades. The view of the beach and sunsets are second to none. Would highly recommend to anyone!
