About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Built in 2001. Beautiful 1,600sf newly remodeled, direct beach front 3 bed condo with ocean front heated pool! $40k in updates and furnishings! It doesn't get any more Gulf front than this!

Fabulous, family friendly waterfront condo in small 4 unit building. Your balcony is approx 30 feet from the sand with views over the heated pool to the beach and awesome sunsets. If you are looking for a huge high rise with lots of hustle and bustle, this is not what you want. If you are searching for a smaller, private building on a quiet stretch of beach, with incredible views, and direct beach/pool access, THIS IS IT!!

When we were searching for a place on the beach, we picked this unit in Indian Rocks because it is a laid back little town with quiet beaches. There are many shops and restuarants within walking distance and numerous others just a short drive away. There are numerous other attractions close by including theme parks, shopping, boating and world class fishing. This is also a wonderful beach for shelling. It really is a wonderful place to come and relax with your family and friends.

We have a family of our own and have remodeled and refurnished this condo to make your holiday (and ours) a wonderful relaxing time in a beautiful, very well equipped condo. Our unit was recently remodelled and has mostly new furniture and matresses, new SS applianes, all new flat screen TVs, new Samsung front loading washer and dryer, granite tops and new faucets etc etc., Relax, enjoy!

About Alan Parkes

Our family lives in Denver and enjoys several trips a year to this wonderful condo. We wanted a quiet condo that had true oceanfront. We found it !!!

Alan Parkes purchased this condo in 2010

Why Alan Parkes chose Indian Rocks Beach

This run of beach is about 20-30 miles long. There are many towns from Clearwater Beach down to St Pete/Treasure island. We didn't know this area very well but wanted something on this beach as we liked the area and the ease of getting there. Honestly it was dumb luck that we ended up in Indian Rocks, and we are extremely glad we did. This little town has a completely different feel and is a much quieter family area than most other towns in the area.

Again, it was luck, but we ended up finding this condo directly on the beach on the quiet end of town. What makes it even quieter is there is another condo between this building and Gulf Blvd (the main beach road) which really cuts down on the traffic noise that most condos suffer from.

This newer condo has a huge living/family room with fabulous direct ocean views and a very spacious deck/patio. You will enjoy incredible sunsets from the arm chairs that await.

The condo is spacious, clean, all the amenities of home and then some! The view is absolutely gorgeous! Love the spiral stairs down to the pool and just a few more steps to the beach! Definitely will go back and highly recommend to friends and family! There are amazing restaurants right outside your front door!

Great week on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at this condo. We had 4 adults and 3 boys ages 5, 7, and 9 in our group and there was plenty of room for everyone. We especially liked the spiral staircase off the balcony which provided easy access to the pool and beach, and made it easy to keep an eye on the kids while they were in the pool. Check in was a breeze, and we were very happy with how clean and well appointed it was. Would definitely stay here again.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed this past summer and were pleasantly surprised. After looking for months for a place to accommodate my wife, I and our 2 kids at a decent price we finally found it here!! We are often hesitant on how the pictures and descriptions of properties are, but this one was certainly a gem. Not only are the views amazing for a night (or morning) on the balcony, but the close and quiet proximity to the beautiful beach is certainly ideal for kids. The area itself allows for affordable and fun family activities, while also allowing for the nicer "date nights"! I couldn't ask for a more cleaner up to date condo to stay in while being able to relax by a clean, peaceful ocean setting. Can't wait to come back!!!!

If you're looking for a warm, comfortable, beautiful and perfect condo on the beach, this is it! We loved walking the beach every morning, then swimming in the ocean to cool off. The birdlife are really enjoyable to watch. And you never know when a manatee might just decide to pay you a visit! As others have stated, the view is spectacular with sunsets over the Gulf that you will never forget.

The rooms are large and comfortable, updated showers/bath, amazing kitchen! Having a washer & dryer is such a bonus!

You will not regret staying in this gorgeous condo.

Amazing place for memories

  • 5 of 5

After seeing the condo, I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wonderful place to stay. They said that there was a remodel, and it really is. It is relaxing, and up to date. I can't say how amazing the view is. The sunset is a memory maker. I would sit and watch the sunset every night. I am planning on coming back in 2015, and would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a getaway. There are amazing restaurants close by. Marlin Darlins is fantastic, Crabby Bills has a great vibe with live music and delicious food. The owner has always been very responsive to any requests that we have made. I would recommend this place to my friends and my family!!!

What an amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I was so pleased in what a beautiful condo this was and how well maintained! The kitchen is absolutely wonderful, although there are many restaurants near by, I didn't want to leave the kitchen! The French bakery is a definite favorite. Daily walks from one end of the beach to the other, morning swims in the swimming pool. Have already recommended to friends and family. Looking forward to our next trip this year!
