Great Location, Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Indian Rocks Beach is the hidden gem of the Suncoast and this corner Gulf-front unit was the perfect retreat. What impressed: The kitchen was well stocked with pots, specialty utensils, blender and the like. What could be better: Towels and sheets were motel average. But to be fair, the king bed was comfortable. Overall: Highly recommended.

Fun

  • 3 of 5

The condo was very spacious, we really enjoyed the balcony. I think it needs a good spring cleaning and the kitchen could use new utinsels and dinnerware. We had no issues and really had a good time.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at our beautiful beachfront condo. I will personally take a look at the kitchen utensil situation when I stay there in a few weeks. Thanks for the input. Richard

Sand Castle II Served Our Needs Well

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a good location, accessible to FL West Coast Spring Training games, and also a nice beach spot on the Gulf Coast. This Sand Castle II unit provided both.

Arrival and check-in was competently handled by the ladies at Plumly Real Estate, just up the road from Sand Castle. Their resources and amenities, including free bikes and movie DVD rentals, were a nice touch and added value to our stay.

The unit itself served our needs with comfortable furniture, TV's and appliances that worked, and, being a corner unit, a nice wraparound outdoor deck for morning coffee and evening sunset watching.

Beach access was easy. There are plenty of comfy beach chais lounges with canopies to rent - pay the $25 and they're yours for the day. If you like walking, the beach goes for miles north or south, with plenty of firm sand along with gulls, pelicans, herons, and other indigenous sea birds to photograph along the way.

Sand Castle II also provides good restaurant access. The Pub is right across the street, Crabby Bills is about a mile north, and there are plenty of options driving south. We especially enjoyed Johns Pass Village and Boardwalk in Madeira Beach. Try the Mad Beach Craft Brewing Company. Great brew and food - sit outside to avoid the noise!

A few quibbles: This unit is on the 3rd floor, very near the pool and hot tub. The latter is very popular all day and well into the evening. We could hear hot tub conversations clearly in the master bedroom. Nothing rowdy, but the noise did detract from an otherwise peaceful location. There are also no recycling bins or facilities in this building - everything has to go in the trash, apparently. Trained as we are to separate our bottles, cans, and paper, it wasn't easy being "green"! Finally, there was no ice in the icemaker when we arrived, so I had to go out and buy some to get us through. What's a condo on the beach without an icy evening cocktail?

Thanks to Richard for sharing this lovely location!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our beautiful beachfront condo. Sorry about the lack of ice in the icemaker in the refrigerator. The cleaning staff always empties it so that the next guest gets fresh ice. Richard

Great Condo, Excellent Views and Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is my fourth visit to the Indian Shores area and my first time renting a condo. Took the whole family this time and needed a large, comfortable place to stay: this condo exceeded my expectations! More than enough room for six adults and my daughters dog. Very comfortable beds and furniture. We liked the palm tree's just off the balcony and the amazing view of the Gulf. Very clean pool and hot tub area with the beach a step away! The Pub restaurant is across the street ( right on Intercostal waterway, great food and drinks) and there are so many other restaurants and bars within minutes from the condo: try Guppy's and Crabby Bills. Richard, the owner, is a great guy to deal with and responds to all your e-mails and phone calls in a timely manner. The folks who manage the rental property, Plumlee Vacations, were excellent as well. This was a great family vacation and recommend to those who want a relaxing, beach vacation. Thank you, Richard.

nice condo with lots of room. Great wrap around balcony

  • 4 of 5

We always enjoy this condo but was disappointed in the cleanliness this time .dirt and dust in the corners of all rooms and ceing fans and ceilings themselves had dust in every room. I wish they would cut down some of the palm trees. You pay for gulf front and because of all the trees you can barely see the water. Those things Asideit is a very convenient location and nice condo. Furniture is very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Glad you liked the condo. The palm trees actually add to the Florida beach flavor and frame the beach nicely. We schedule a deep cleaning twice a year. They dust every surface at that time.

Beautiful Condo Gorgeous Beach Front Location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week here in May 2015. The condo has been nicely updated, including new leather LR furniture. The balcony is where you will spend your time, so peaceful and relaxing. It has a wrap around balcony and gives you a view of the intercoastal waterway across the street. The pool and hot tub are just steps away from the elevator, as is the beach. This is an end unit, which we found to be nice and quiet. We travel with our dog and it is very pet friendly too! Plumlee Realty that handles the condo is close to the location and very helpful. Also, they had free bikes for the day and free DVD'S for use. One restaurant across the street, but you can ride the trolley up to Clearwater beach or down to St. Pete beach. Pay by the day nominal charge and very, very frequent stops. Also, do not miss the pizza a Slyce, it is amazing. Perfect to eat on the balcony waiting for one of the gorgeous sunsets. I was very impressed and I live only 18 miles from the gulf a bit south of this location. We will be back again.

Enjoy a few laps in the heated swimming pool or unwind in a poolside Jacuzzi. Enjoy walking, jogging, or biking the miles of tranquil beach. Hungry? Don't feel like going out for dinner, create your own at one of our gas barbecues in the delightful poolside picnic area adjacent to one of the largest sundecks on the beach.

We are located in Indian Shores, one of the quieter beach areas with less traffic, but still very close to many restaurants and shops. The famous Crabby Bill's and Salt Rock Grill restaurants are nearby and well worth a visit. The excitement of Disney World and Universal Studios is just 90 minutes away, while Busch Gardens is nearby in Tampa.
