Retired after 35 years of service with the US Environmental Protection Agency.Reside in Cincinnati, Ohio along with 3 dogs.

Ed Bates purchased this condo in 2008

I have travelled to many areas in Florida. This part of Florida between Clearwater Beach and St Petersburg Beach is the most beautiful and relaxing part of Florida, yet convenient to many facilities and attractions. The 15 miles of wide white sand beaches are fantastic and are suitable for swiming, walking, running, and even bicycles as the sand is firm near the tide line yet fluffy back from the tide.

Great breakfasts and sunsets on the balcony overlooking the beach and Gulf,great tropical garden on the beach with palms, tiki huts, hot tub, and pool all beachside. Great restraunts in the area and a family oriented condo atmosphere.Be sure to visit some of the great Florida State Parks in the area including Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island, Myakka River and Egmont Key, featuring trails,boat rides, kayaks,bird watching, and even alligators.

FIRST TIME TO INDIAN SHORES

  • 5 of 5
We took a family vacation to Indian Shores. We had a great time. The condo was very nice and actually better than pictured. Perfect location and extra roomy. Check in was chaotic but expected. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The only negative to the entire complex would be there is only ONE elevator to service the complex so check in/check out day - plan to wait. But the condo itself was wonderful!

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this unit for a week last summer and as I plan this year's vacation, I find myself wishing we were heading back to the same spot this year. The condo is spacious and very clean with so many conveniences available. The living room was comfortable and offered great views and sounds of the ocean, as did the master bedroom. The bathrooms were clean and updated and the kitchen was a great surprise to one who enjoys cooking! The balcony boasts beautiful ocean views from where we watched dolphins play along the shoreline nearly every night and morning. The beach was so easily accessible and a great location for a family with a young child. The beach was never crowded and the sand was beautiful. This condo graciously sleeps 10 with its three bedrooms and provides space for people to spread out and get some alone time. There were several books available for toting down to the sand as well as some chairs and boogie boards. The one and only negative experience was the frequent wafting of cigarette smoke from the balconies surrounding us, but that is no fault of the owner. We would definitely return to this condo! It's a great value for the money!

A HEAVENLY PLACE...

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a wonderful vacation here. The experience was great from the start with the owner quickly responding to emails and questions and booking the place through the property managers was seamless. The condo itself is clean and spacious with three great bedrooms and plenty of closet space. The Master bedroom is perfectly located where you can awake to the view and sounds of the ocean! The kitchen is spacious and is pretty well stocked. It is also very handy to have a washer and dryer right in your unit so you can definitely pack light. You can't beat the view from the balcony - perfect for spotting morning dolphins playing or watching a beautiful sunset at night. The Unit is also well placed on the 4th floor, far enough away from the pool area and great for views from the balcony. It's also great to have access to a computer and have free Wifi.

As for the beach...well you can't get much better. The sand is soft and the beach goes on for miles in either direction (perfect spot for a morning run). The unit also had a few beach chairs and even had some beach toys which was handy for us. We also bought a few more and left them in the unit. It was quite hot when we were there so would suggest bringing or buying an umbrella as there is little shade. Some sit under the pier for shade or you can purchase a lounge chair with an umbrella our front which I believe is a cost of $25/day. Also, don't forget to bring your beach towels. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and plenty of shells for those who enjoy shell hunting.

The pool area is also great - my kids loved it! The hot tub is a good size and the pool is a pretty good size as well. There is plenty of chairs around the pool and three huts with tables.

Overall, this condo is great and I wouldn't hesitate to return. Our whole family really enjoyed it!

NOISY NEIGHBORS

  • 1 of 5
We stayed in this unit for a weeks vacation. The condo itself is nicely appointed, however the problem is the owners who live above are terribly noisy and inconsiderate of there living environment. They have a small child who runs through the condo continuously, and even the adults walk very heavy and you could here every move they made. We complained to the office, but it offered no resolution. We suffered through the entire week being awakened at 6:00 a.m each day, and had to listen to the stomping all day long. We will NEVER stay here again. We hope the owner becomes aware of this issue, as it potentially will impact his rental business.

Owner's Response: I sent the following note to the guest at her E mail address on November 16, 2012. owner, unit 407 Sand Dollar

"Dear Ms.(name witheld), I first became aware of your distress over noisy neighbors in the unit above you when I saw your negative review for my unit posted on vrbo.com on the last day of your stay. I wish you had contacted me sooner, as maybe I could have done something. I know the owners above me and they are a quiet couple with no small children. Obviously they were not there, but their unit was rented to someone not very considerate. Though this unfortunate event was out of my control, I will notify the owners and the on site management and request that the people who rented the unit above you be placed on a future "no rent list". I realize that this does not make your stay any more pleasant. I am a host who takes great pride in providing superior accommodations as past reviews indicate. To help make amends in some manner, I offer to send you a full, 100%, refund of the rental fee if you will provide me with your mailing address. owner, unit 407 Sand Dollar."

ENJOYABLE WEEK WITH FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in this condo the last week of July 2010. We've been traveling to this area for 25 years, and this is the best place we've stayed. Lots of nice amenities and fantastic decor. The owner's have obviously put a lot of work into the place and you can definitely tell. I would never hesitate to call the owner back and reserve another week. We are looking forward to coming back again next year!
