About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do! There is a 14 day minimum rental in the building!

After an extensive search, we knew The Rose in Town of Indian Shores is where we wanted to buy.

The third floor condos are the only ones with the 20'x30' terraces, so, that was a must have for us!

We could just imagine sitting there having our coffee in the morning watching the dolphins play and a glass of wine in the evening watching the fantastic sunsets.

With the 3 sliders the length the condo, 2 in the living room and 1 in the master bedroom, that makes you feel so 'At The Beach!' even from inside the condo. The views are breathtaking!

The sound of the waves rock you to sleep at night!

The Master suite has a King-size adjustable bed and flat screen TV. The 2nd bedroom has a Queen-size bed, the 3rd bedroom has Twin beds with a shared full bath with shower. The master bath has a tub with a shower. There is also an in unit fullsize washer & dryer. The living room has a Large HD 'Smart TV' with the expanded cable to include the 'Sports Package.' Free Wi-Fi and local / long distance phone service including Canada. There is wine cooler and Keurig coffee maker for your enjoyment.

The bedrooms all have carpeting and the living, kitchen, hallway & bathroom area all new tile.

You have the choice of the heated swimming pool or the wonderful Gulf to take a swim or better yet, try them both.

There are beach chairs and beach umbrella for your use.

Welcome to our little piece of the beach!

We know you will relax and enjoy your stay! We always hate to leave!

About Dave & Laurene

Dave and I are from State College, PA. We have always loved the beach and have been vacationing on the Gulf coast for the last 11 years. We fell in love with the area and decided that was where we wanted to spend our time away from home. We love Penn State Football, Men's and Ladies Basketball, Lady Lion Volleyball, Men's Hockey and of course PSU Wrestling!

Dave & Laurene purchased this condo in 2013

Why Dave & Laurene chose Indian Shores

Our third floor level condo at The Rose has 20' x 30' terraces that looks out to the Gulf. It is Very Unusual to find a terrace of that size beach front.

What makes this condo unique

There is such a gentle calmness to the building. Everyone takes such pride to make it a relaxing home away from home. You can't wait to come back!

A very comfortable, cozy and welcoming condo.

  • 5 of 5

Directly on the beach with a large terrace this condo is very comfortable and cozy. It is clean with ample amount of sheets and towels. Also, the kitchen is well equipped with all appliances in good working order. Clearly, the owners take great pride in their home away from home! There is a quiet and respective atmosphere along with a sense of security that surrounds this very well maintained building and pool areas. We certainly would recommend this wonderful condo for a truly relaxing holiday!

Couldn't have been nicer😎

  • 5 of 5

You would think almost 3 weeks would be enough, but, it wasn't!

The condo is so relaxing and the terrace is beautiful any time of the day. The large lounger is great for laying and watching the stars at night while listening to the waves.

Condo is well equipped with everything you may need.

Trolley runs from Clearwater Beach to St. Pete Beach, so, you can catch it and let your car sit in garage. Best coffee shop around is right a cross the street.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo even better than pictured! Throughout the week we enjoyed meals and relaxing on the amazing terrace! The condo is beautifully decorated with all the amenities of home. Great location! Beach was fantastic. Felt like we had our own piece of paradise! Walked to the Salt Rock Grill for dinner, coffee shop directly across the street, and Mahuffer's Bar. Enjoyed dinner at Backwaters on Sand Key and Guppy's both within easy driving distance. There is a bus stop close by for the Jolley Trolley. Rode this down to John's Pass one evening. There is a public library across the street in the municipal building which we used to print our boarding passes for our flight home. Owners are great! We loved this condo and highly recommend it! Can't wait to go again!

I almost hate to write a review of this place for fear that it will never be available for me to rent again. This is by far my favorite oceanfront condo that I have ever stayed in. All of the people in my group (5 adults and 1 child) felt the same way. Had a few friends stop by for visits while I was there and they all loved it too. The condo has a great layout and lots of beach décor. The furniture and beds were nice and comfy. There are lots of extras furnished by the owner such as very nice beach chairs, lots of sheets and towels (including beach towels), and beach toys and much more. The owners were great to work with and very responsive. The kitchen was very well stocked. There is an electric grill on the terrace which actually worked very well. There is a wonderful washer and dryer in the unit. But, even without all of that, the terrace alone makes this a stand out! We could have slept out there. So large and it is just like sitting on the beach (except no sand). We spent almost every waking moment out there. And the view of the sunsets from the terrace was phenomenal. It was like a different show every night. There is a great coffee shop directly across the street and The Salt Rock Grill and Mufhaffer's Bar (a great dive bar) are both across the street and within walking distance. It is very close to several other restaurants we like. This was our 4th visit to this area of the beach and we are hooked. The only negatives for us was the parking (although enough spaces) was tight in the garage and there is no icemaker. But the owner has done many upgrades to the condo and there were plenty of ice trays!! Parking for the condos in this area is often problematic with all of the condos we have stayed in. The condo complex is very quiet with several owners staying there permanently. The TVs in the unit were great as was the free Wi-Fi. I cannot wait to go back again!!! The closest thing to paradise I have ever experienced and I travel a lot!!

Owner's Response: Good morning! Thank you for the wonderful review and can't wait to have you all return! Next time the terrace will be even better with all the new furniture to relax on. I am like you, the terrace is where I love to be! The sounds of the waves are so peaceful and relaxing! It IS just like being at the beach without the sand! Having rented a lot before we purchased we try to have everything to make people comfortable and want to return! Paradise will just keep getting better! Have a super weekend! Laurene & Dave
