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.

Great views and comfortable beds.

  • 4 of 5

We truley love this condo. We have been here 3 years running and will probably come back next year. The condo is comfortable and is pet friendly. There are lots of good restrauants very close and the rental company is very nice to work with. The only improvement would be new couches. The people who stay here put on suntan oil and then sit on the microfiber couches. It makes them look very soiled. We always put sheets over them when we are there. All in all a very nice condo

Owner's Response: We maintain a spotless unit, if there was something out of order, our management company would have gladly addressed this issue for you. Since you were a repeat customer you should have known this. This is a family friendly complex, I'm sorry you object to children in the pool area. As to leaving items on a public beach, we are sorry for the loss of your flip flops.

Great family condo. Has a wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here in July of 2011. The condo is very spacious and comfortable. It is handy to many attractions and restaurants. We have a dog who travels with us and it is very pet friendly. We will be returning next year.

Location

Activity and Interests

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.
