Guestbook comments from the owner

Hector and Barbara, We had a great time during our week stay at the Sand Dollar (Condo 212). Everything was as promised and the kids loved the pool. We would really be interested in renting again and anytime you have any last minute availability we'd like to know.Next summer would also be a time we would like to rent again(most likely around the same week). Thank you again for such a great location and accomodations.

Very spacious, nice and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Your place is very spacious and nice! The beds were comfortable and all my friends and myself loved the sofa in the living room!!! It was so comfortable to sit on and I even fell asleep on it one night!! Your price is great, it's just all the other "stuff" that's added that makes 3 nights be double your nightly price by the time it's all added in, (cleaning fee, taxes, other fees). If there was one suggestion we all agreed on it was that the bedroom that had the double bed be upgraded to a Queeen or King bed. There were 8 of us that graduated together in 1978 and we had a blast. Thank you so much for your kindness and help everytime I contacted you by phone. I'm sure I will keep your place listed as a favorite in my computer files. Again, thank you!

An Impressive Property Directly On The Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I had an amazing stay at this condo. Top shelf experience from beginning to end. We were late arriving, and called the staff to make arrangements. Staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. Our keys were placed in a lock box, and we were given the access code. When we arrived, we went up to the condo, and were pleasantly surprised with the layout and amenities. Beautiful, spacious, updated condo with every item we could possibly need at out fingertips! Though our party was only 3, the condo comfortably sleeps 8. Master bedroom with a king sized bed, smart TV, and private bath. Second full bath at opposite end of condo, with 2 more bedrooms. And the kitchen is a chef's dream! Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, washer and dryer, even a dishwasher and trash compactor - who does that? From the beautiful sunrises, immediate private beach access, in ground pool and hot tub, you can spend your day in gulf beach paradise, only to be capped by the absolutely amazing sunsets! We felt as if we had our own slice of paradise. We made sure to tour the area, visiting Clearwater Beach (where we took in the sunset one evening) and John's Pass. We visited Largo just a few miles away, where my teenager shopped in several stores. And, as a comparison to other units, my wife met a fellow New Yorker and her family - instant friendship. When invited to spend time with us on the one night of inclement weather, our new friend was amazed at the upgrades to the condo. She went as far as to tell us the condo she was staying in looked nothing like the one we visited! I have already recommended this condo to others, and will continue to do so. We fully expect to visit again as soon as we can. Just fantastic. What a great week! Thank you, Hector and Barbara. Your place is just perfect.

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property from 10/16/15-10/19/15 for two families of 4 (8 total people). The 3 bedroom/2 bathroom condo was amazing! The owners put a lot of thought into the property by having beach toys available for the kids along with a beach umbrella and chairs (which all the kids really enjoyed)! The pool is at the back of the property and steps away from white, sandy beaches! There were many restaurants within driving distance. The property was well-maintained and as described in the listing. The ladies who work the front desk were super sweet! We enjoyed the beach, pool, and restaurants! We would definitely return to this property in the future!

From the Owner

Since the moment we first visit Indian Shores we fell in love with the beach, area and the people. For over a year we search for a place that will be different from most vacation condos. The momen we found this place we both fell in love with it. The large spacious condo, the ocean front heated pool and Jacuzzi, and picnic area. Cenrally located to activities and shopping, but quiet and relaxing, and most of all the only private complex with our private pier on the Gulf. Most of all the white powder sandy beach and amazing sunsets.
