Overview

Indian Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy beautiful sunsets, warm breezes, starry nights and the sound of the surf to lull you to sleep. This condo is in the popular Seagate building and has everything you need to ensure a memorable vacation. The balcony extends across the living room and master bedroom where you can sit and watch the waves roll in. We have a heated pool and tiki huts with charcoal grills and picnic tables. Their are bathrooms at the pool and only residents can use the pool and the picnic area as the building is gated and a key is required to enter or exit. Our unit is on the first floor above the parking garage and faces the Gulf of Mexico where you can watch the dolphins play and the gulls and pelicans fish for their dinner.

The kitchen was recently remodeled and is, of course, fully equipped. All of the TV's are new flat screens. The unit has been freshly painted and refurbished and you need only bring your swim suits, beach towels and groceries and begin to unwind. We are centrally located between Clearwater and St Pete and are close to good restaurants and shopping. Tampa International Airport is less than 30 minutes away and Orlando is a little over an hour away. In short, it's the perfect vacation get away. Come to Seagate and enjoy all that the area has to offer.

About Lynne Desterre

Tim and Lynne are the happy owners of this beautiful property. We try to spend as much time here as we can when it is not rented. We live in the Tampa area so can take advantage of the sun, the sand and the Gulf quite often. The owners and their agents take good care of their guests and try to fulfill their dream of a perfect vacation.

Lynne Desterre purchased this condo in 2002

Why Lynne Desterre chose Indian Shores

Indian Shores is one of the most beautiful beaches on the entire Gulf coast. Clean and uncrowded. The restaurant selection is also one of the best. We are beach people and enjoy spending as much time here as we can.

What makes this condo unique

We love to swim in the pool year round, walk the beach, watch the sunsets, and enjoy the warm gulf waters. It's a mini vacation for us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location was fabulous but had many issues with the condo. ALL beds were extremely uncomfortable even when owner stated they were great and Very comfortable,no fitted sheets at all, no beach towels, old unmatched dishes and glasses, pool closed for 3 days due to vandalism, old type small TV's, umbrella broken as were most waterboard toys, no dishwasher cleanser on arrival, small icemaker that never had enough ice for a family,no gate code to walk on beach on arrival,needs drywall repairs and painting was unfinished. I suggest you call for referneces as the pixs make it look better than it really is. Low ceilings make it seem closed in feeling.

Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

Our stay for 2 weeks in Condo 107 was very relaxing. First, the keyless entry was the best to the room and the coded bathroom. We were fortunate enough to not have to use keys to access the beach as locks were removed from gate. Bedrooms were comfortable with tv's in 2 of the bedrooms(a downfall by not having a tv in the 3rd bedroom) Living area was nice, although we were wishing for an additional piece of living room furniture, ie a recliner/chair. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes. Manager of condo(Tina) was AWESOME!! She took care of a few needs that arose at the beginning of our stay in a very quick manner. Views/sunsets/full moon from balcony were beautiful. Parking was nice in the garage area and well lit. Entry to Condo parking lot not very well lit at night, difficult to see and only one way in/out. This is not owner's fault by any means. This was out 14th year visiting the area and new to staying in Sea Gate. Pool was large and heated with plenty of seating. We did feel pool could have been cleaner due to the high use during the 2 weeks we were there(lots of suntan lotion floating on edges of pool-scrubbing each day with brush would have helped). One negative about Sea Gate was no one was ever in the office to report concerns-several times people who were not renters appeared at the pool and stayed, others attempted to use bathrooms(thank goodness for codes because most of us around the pool knew they did not belong and we would not release code). Several great restaurants/breakfast places around that we frequent whenever we are there: Sweet Sage(breakfast/lunch-outside dining) Friendly Tavern(breakfast, lunch and dinner-outside dining), Original Pizza(lunch deals at $5.00, dinner, outside dining). Trolley is right out in front of the Sea Gate Condo. When making reservations for our stay, owner answered every and all questions we asked. Washer/dryer in the unit as well. Beach was beautiful and clean. Families out crabbing at night-tons of laughter heard. Great people staying at Sea Gate Condo's. Made some lasting friendships.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post your comments. It is much appreciated. There is no cable outlet in the 3rd bedroom or we would have put a TV in it. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Seagate and hope you can come again.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed the condo and the area. The pool was amazing, the beach is beautiful and the condo itself was perfect for our family. We had 6 adults and 2 children. There was plenty of room and it was nice and quiet at night. The local restaurants (Crabby Bills) were great and reasonably priced. The balcony and view are as advertised. We are definitely planning on coming back

Great beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 week stay in this condo was perfect! Paula, the owner, was very helpful. She sent us an update about the local bridge being closed with alternate routes. She was quick to respond to my emails. The condo was fabulous! We really liked the large living spacce, the balcony, and the kitchen. The beach was the best beach I have ever been to and the restaurants in the area were some of my favorites too. Paula also sent a list of restaurants that was very helpful. There was easy access to the beach and the pool was nice. I cannot express enough how helpful Paula was!

EXCELLENT STAY BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

lovely condo right on the beach very close to pool, one small flight of stairs outside or lift if required. very large balcony with amazing views, you can sit there for hours and watch the ocean. nice big pool and there was a really good restaurant over the road called saltrock grill, it has an early bird menu for $14.99 if seated by 5.30 and it has outside seating as well as indoors. you can also walk to adventure golf and the trolley stops right outside and on the other side of the road. it goes all the way from clearwater and down. short drive to codys roadhouse, BEST RIBS by far! i would score this place 9/10. beds comfy and plenty of supermarkets and shops in 5 to 10 minutes drive.

Enjoyed it

  • 5 of 5

Seagate 107 was exactly as advertised. Dealing with both the owner and the manager was a delight. We had eight adults and had plenty of room. We cooked two dinners (Spaghetti and shrimp and salad both nights.) We had all the utensils we needed. If you're looking for condos at Seagate, this first floor location is highly desirable. As many other reviewers have mentioned, the elevator is exceedingly slow and hot. Being on the first floor (the floor just above the parking garage, meant we walked one set of stairs. Contrary to an earlier review, the stairway was well lit. A closet in the small bedroom had a ton of beach supplies and toys. The only complaint we had, which is found in many reviews, is the locked beach gate. We've never encountered that before and it's a true pain. I love the keyless entry to the unit, but that's mitigated by the need to have a key to get to the beach. I suppose there may be a reason for it, but since there is a public beach access with a huge sign thirty feet from the locked gate, it seems real dumb. Hint: If you forget the key, you can go out the front of the garage area, turn left, walk thirty feet, and use the paved public access. It just takes an extra minute. Hint 2: Each day, somebody who didn't mind breaking rules would prop open the gate and it would stay that way for the rest of the day. To sum up, if you want a three bedroom condo, with a good price, in an area with only one (very tasteful) miniature golf course course, this is a great place to stay. If you stay at Seagate, this condo is a great choice.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post comments. It's much appreciated! Tim and I are glad to hear you enjoyed the property - we understand your frustration about the gate but it is mandated by the property owner's association. We have had issues with people using the property coming up from the beach. We hope you can visit again!
