On the balcony you'll have panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. Windows in every room provide sunshine and the sound of the ocean surf.

The master bedroom has a king size 4 poster bed and adjoining private bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower.

Pinellas County: Six small towns in the county that contains Indian Rocks Beach and St. Pete/Clearwater are distinctive destinations. The 'hip' town of Pass-a-Grille, 'literally an appendage' of St. Petersburg, is topped by the old Don Cesar Hotel, one of the few remaining 'pink palaces in the state ... like a big sand castle on the water.' Gulfport, to the east, has 'become a cool hangout, in a quiet way.' Safety Harbor, famed for its eponymous spa, 'is a wonderful town for walking around.' To the north, Dunedin's old railroad bed has been turned into the nearly 40-mile Pinellas Trail, used by 1 million people a year. The 'sane, small-scale' Indian Rocks Beach is 'the best beach town' of all. Finally, the trail leads up to Tarpon Springs, an 'old Greek fishing community' still 'redolent with character.'
Beaches: Each sunset over the Gulf of Mexico paints a scene as unique as the beach communities that line the shores. Places for solitude amidst a coastal glory, small towns with surf shops and outdoor ice cream parlors, on the shores just outside your door.
My husband and I absolutely loved this place! We rarely get away by ourselves so this was a real treat! Very romantic setting, beautiful balcony sunsets, and fully equipped kitchen. We literally never left the condo except for one time to check out a restaurant. Our time was spent going from the balcony to the pool to the beach and back again! The only thing we will change next time is forcing ourselves to get out and see the sights of Indian Rocks Beach. But in all honesty, the relaxing and cozy feel of this condo left us wanting nothing at all!
This was a dream come true for my husband and I who rarely have the time to just get away. This condo had all the amenities we could ask for but the best part was the view. Absolutely amazing! The only thing that we do somewhat regret is that we never really saw much of Indian Rocks beach but that is a compliment to this condo as we never wanted to leave! We literally went from the balcony to the pool to the beach, and started all over again the next day! Kitchen is complete with every cookware you can possibly need so we ate in every night. So next time we go (and we WILL stay here again!), we will try to get out and check out some of the restaurants and sightseeing locations of this area! Then again, maybe not! LOVED THIS PLACE!
My wife and I wanted a child free vacation where we could relax and unwind. This was the perfect place to do it! The condo is well cared for and clean. It is larger than what the pictures represent. There are 2 large televisions, one in living room and one in master bedroom, but we never turned either one on. The elevator is an awesome touch and we never heard the neighbors.
We spotted a few dolphins, one as close to the shore as I have ever seen. The beach is clean and not very crowded. The sunsets were the highlight of our stay, they are absolutely stunning.
Darrel is a class act and I have never rented from someone who cared as much as he does. He made sure everything was 100% to our satisfaction.
If you're looking for fast food, chain restaurants and attractions on every corner IRB is not for you. There are plenty of places to eat, from dive bars to locally owned ice cream/deli establishments to seafood restaurants. There is plenty to do in Clearwater (10 minutes north) or St Petes (25 minutes south). It was nice to see both these beaches and explore, but it was awesome to return home to Indian Rocks and chill in the peace and quiet.
I do believe this condo and this beach is as close to peace on earth as I have found. I hesitated writing a review only for the simple fact I want to keep it a secret. Have no reservations about renting this condo from Darrel. I WILL be back.
My husband and I had a wonderful week in your lovely condo! We had everything we needed, all the comforts of home. Clean as a whistle. And the master bedroom bed is so comfy! Walking to our favorite eating spots, Guppy's and TJ's was a plus. The view from the porch was spectacular, dolphins bobbing down the shoreline and sunsets to take your breath away!
The shelling in the early morning hours was so enjoyable. I had quite a haul of shells to carry on our flight home. :) We look forward to our next visit. Thank you!
We spent 10 lovely nights at the Sea Isles during September 2013. Thank you to Darrel for allowing us to rent this beautiful apartment. We have been to Florida many times; however, this has been the best apartment we have stayed at. We have already decided to return in 2015 and will definitely be renting this beautiful piece of paradise again

My sister-in-law and I stayed at The Penthouse at Sea Isles the week before
Christmas 2012, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The condo is fully
equipped, from the gourmet cookware down to the paper products and cleaning
supplies. Also, beautifully decorated! Your parking spot is right next to the
elevator, which is VERY handy.
Darrel, the owner, is very helpful with any questions or needs you might
have, before or after your stay. And the local manager, Ben, was very nice
and is always on call.
When you finally decide to leave the balcony and the dolphin spottings,
try the Suncoast Trolley, which you can catch right outside your door,
and ride all day long from Clearwater to Pass-A-Grille, and back again
if you like. And for a quick and very good breakfast/donuts/coffee/bagels,
try The Lighthouse Bakery which is about a mile south on Gulf Blvd.
We would highly recommended The Penthouse, and hope to return soon!
