Gulf front condo directly on beach - 5 night minimum stay

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This unit is our vacation get away which we are happy to share. Because it is so special to us, we are very particular who we rent to. Please note that we have a 5 night minimum - don't ask for 3. Also, the rates are those published here. If you're looking for a short rental bargain, this isn't your place.

Set on the beautiful white sand overlooking the sparkling Gulf of Mexico, our 51 unit building is small enough to be friendly and personal, yet large enough for our on-site office and staff. Our unit is a mere 75 steps from the sand, through the interior hallway and across our private sun deck. No walking through parked cars or across a driveway.

Our unit was remodeled in December 2011 with a new kitchen, new flooring, new paint and new mattresses in the second bedroom. It is fully furnished to meet all your needs to provide you a carefree time in paradise. Relax on your private balcony overlooking the sun deck, heated pool and a white sandy beach that seems to go on forever. Third floor level allows an intimate connection with all activities below while still allowing some distance. The direct western exposure reveals breathtaking sunsets most every night. With the pool on the west side, there is shaded swimming until noon with direct sun in the afternoon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us, your mother and step-father, enjoy your new condo on this beautiful beach. The plumber finished work Monday and the carpenter & painter said they would hold off until we were gone to finish the upgrade on the hall bathroom. You have done a wonderful job of making this place attractive, comfortable and efficient.

We have enjoyed watching the birds, walking the beach and eating our way up the road. Crabby Bill's has the best breakfast and we danced the night away Wednesday at J.D.'s. Life is good!

Second bedroom has two double beds; second bathroom has a tub with shower. Both bedrooms have a dresser, full closet, ceiling fan, TV, clock radio and even a night light. Both bathrooms are equipped with hair dryers. The beach in front of our building is groomed weekly to help ensure the sand remains clean and fluffy. Beach was rebuilt in 2012 by dredging sand about a mile offshore and pumping it in. This is done every few years to ensure the beach is fluffy and white.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week while the balcony was being worked on and I was amazed at how sound proof the condo was. Consfriction would start around 7 am and we never heard a single sound. The condo itself was a fantastic condo, well equipped clean and family friendly. We definitely will be coming back next year.

Wonderful condo in lovely beach town

  • 5 of 5

My husband, three children and myself spent the past week at this beautiful condo. It contained everything we needed for a carefree, relaxing vacation on the beach. The unit itself, complex, pool and beach are all clean and well maintained. The unit overlooks miles of pristine white sand beach. There's a good variety of excellent restaurants within walking distance. Thank you for sharing your beach home with us. We had an absolutely wonderful week!

Great Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the ideal beach vacation, this is it! The clean property is close to St. Pete / Clearwater airport in a family friendly area. The soft sand beach is great for relaxing or playing and affordable, nice restaurants are within walking distance. If you want a night on the town or see a professional sporting event, the Tampa metro area provides plenty of options.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have now stayed at this condo twice and both times were fabulous! Everything about this location is great. The location from the airport is short, the beach is literally on the other side of the pool, and great restaurants are a walk away. The condo itself is clean, comfortable, "beach themed", and on the top floor on the gulf side so the view of the sunsets is perfect. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting to getaway and I hope to come back soon! Thanks to the owners for sharing your wonderful home away from home!

Really enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I recently returned from our week at Indian Rocks Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our R&R. We have been to this area before but never in September. It was a perfect time to be there -- warm temperatures, warm gulf water, & no crowds on the beach. Walking the beach, seeing dolphins in the early morning, being amused by the birds (especially the pelicans as they skimmed the surface of the water & dove to catch their prey), reading in our beach chairs with the sound of the lapping waves, taking afternoon dips in the heated pool, & marveling at the magnificent sunsets were treasured times. Adding to the ambiance was Rod & Jill's lovely condo. It is clean, "comfy," tastefully decorated, well-maintained, & has a great view of the beach from the balcony. In fact, we enjoyed having breakfast there as well as viewing the sunsets. It is obvious that the owners take pride in their unit being the best it can be for renters. We were also quite pleased that the kitchen had everything we needed. That hasn't always been the case in other condos we've rented. Being on the third floor (of a 3-story building)is a plus, too, as we had an unobstructed view of the beach & were away from the pool noises. The complex has an on-site manager. Both Marie & Migena were very friendly & helpful. The first night we were awakened repeatedly by the toilet in the master bedroom not shutting off properly. Within minutes of contacting Migena the next morning, she had the maintenance man take care of it. Brian was also very friendly as he went about the task of the repair, taking his time to make sure it was fixed correctly the FIRST time. The condo complex also has a great location, only minutes from Madeira Beach & John's Pass to the south & from Clearwater Beach to the north. We got to both, including taking a dolphin excursion on the Little Toot excursion boat at the latter. Restaurants in the area are plentiful, too. Highly recommended are Crabby Bill's (casual bar & grill with outdoor dining, good food, & nightly music), Gumpy's (a slightly upscale restaurant where we dined on the patio & had scrumptious fish entrees [Try the grilled trout]), & Salt Rock (a more upscale restaurant that overlooks the intracoastal waterway -- again dining al fresco on grouper [my wife's entree] & mussels [mine]). Both were excellent, as were the mohitos. All in all, we were quite pleased with our stay at Indian Rocks Beach & at Rod & Jill's condo. We'd go back again for some more R&R.
