John & Tina
We had a wonderful week here at your place on the beach. It was our first family trip to the Gulf and this is a beautiful place. We loved everything -- water, sand, shells And, thank-you so much for the water toys you left for us to play with. We have left them and a few more for other families to enjoy. The Strouse Family
Thanks so very much for such a nice place to stay. It was just like being at home. We have really enjoyed our stay here. Hope you will allow us to come back another time. We tried to leave the condo the way we found it. Thanks again! Layman Family, Arkansas
Dear Tina, John & Kids,
How blessed you are! A beautiful place for a wonderful family. Thank you so much for allowing our family to enjoy your little piece of Heaven here on earth. The ocean/gulf was so peaceful and relaxing. It rejuvenated Frank and me. The kids enjoyed us and we enjoyed them! Miracles do happen!! Family time is critical for the whole family and the Beach always reminds us of that! We look forward to another week next year! God bless you all, the Allegra’s , Florida
Had an exceptional time this week. We will be back same time next year. Holston Family, Florida
We had a wonderful time here with our family. This is our first vacation with our two granddaughters -(2 yrs and 2 months) the girls had a wonderful time. Eleanor loved the beach and the ocean and little Evelyn loved to nap on the king size bed!! Your condo is beautiful and wonderfully equipped. We had everything we needed. Thanks so much for providing a highchair. That was a very thoughtful gesture and we appreciate it. We used your beach toys and added a few to your collection. Thanks again - we hope to return again.

More photos on request!
We have lived in Florida for over 20 years. Before purchasing this unit, we scoped the beaches from the east to the west coast of Florida. When we found Indian Rocks Beach, we found our dream home away from home. The water is turquoise and feels tropical. The beauty of the location is unique in that it is private enough to just 'hide away' and relax; and, at the same time be close to some of Florida's main attractions. This location has it all.
Tina & John Altieri purchased this condo in 2002
We have a large family with eight children. At the time of purchase the oldest was 14 and the youngest an infant. One of our most favorite things about our unit is how close it is to everything. Literally, steps away from the gulf waters. You can see the kids building sand castles on the beach while sipping cocktails on the balcony. Our children are now grown and still love the beach and the proximity of the night life in Clearwater as well as the water/theme parks in Tampa and Orlando. Fishing from our private dock is another favorite of our younger teens. The list goes on......
Some of the most popular benefits of this condo is it's size and location. The building itself is private with a total of 15 units. Even at full capacity, it is private and quiet. The sand is soft and white and the water is crystal clear. The condo is situated in the 'narrows' which is surrounded by both the gulf and the intercoastal. The photos are very deceiving. Most people, upon arrival, express how happy they are with the size of the unit and the views. It is very roomy and split into two sections: the gulf side and the intercoastal side. Come and check it out soon.
Just a note to say how very much we enjoyed our stay at your
lovely condo. Truly a perfect space to relax and unwind
from the routine of life. Each day after returning from our
outings, Lucy would say "home" as we stepped off the
elevator and into the entry. We certainly did feel at home.
Each of us will treasure the memories of Lucy's first time
on the beach (I think we heard the word, "water," at least
100 times that week). She loved playing with bubbles on the
balcony, and running back and forth between the kitchen and
the living room. She slept peacefully each night in the
blue bedroom with her new monkey. We took her to the zoo in
Tampa and the aquarium in Clearwater. She was the star of
the show one night as she danced to the live music at My
Place on the Beach. As for the rest of us, Emily and I
loved running on the beach in the morning. Luke got in an
afternoon of golf. Jim and Luke saw a manatee in the gulf.
Each couple enjoyed a "date night," Jim and I ate at Guppy's
and Emily and Luke ate at the Pub. We loved playing cards
on the balcony. Luke and I were victorious!
IT WAS A PERFECT VACATION, MANY "PRICELESS" MOMENTS. We are
definitely thinking of a return visit. Thank you for
opening your home to us.
We had an amazing time at the condo. Tina did an amazing job at working with our schedule, to ensure a smooth check in. Everything was organized and prepared so well. We arrived to a lovely, clean, spacious condo with a gorgeous view of the beach and the gulf. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, and we enjoyed cooking and barbequing our own meals there. However it was also nice to be close to so many restaurants, and the ice cream parlor which we frequented that week! Additionally there are lots of extra towels, and beach toys which saved us a lot of space packing. The condo is decorated in order to really have that beachy feel. I wish we could have stayed longer. This is the perfect condo for families or for a group of friends. This was an amazing home away from home, and I hope to be back ! Thank you again Tina !
We had a wonderful week at Footprints! The condo was very clean, fully equipped, and quite spacious. Plenty of room for just the two of us, and it would be equally spacious for a larger family. Per other reviewers, the location is great - quiet area, but plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, many within walking distance. Good location for day trips to Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete, Sarasota, even Orlando. Under 1hr drive to several baseball spring training stadiums (we went to a Blue Jays game at
Florida Auto Exchange Stadium in Dunedin). LOVED being right on the beach! Great attention by Tina to ensure all was well at check-in.
It's all good. Owners very attentive to any needs. Clearly a great place to stay as we have returned each year. Very convenient location. But importantly, the view of the sunrise AND the sunset from the same condo is a real treat.
My husband and I spent a month at Tina and John's condo. It was a first for us in many ways - first time at this condo, first time in the Indian Rocks area and first time to spend an entire month at the beach. Would we do it again? The answer is: We've already signed up to return next year! We love the laid-back town, restaurants and stores in walking distance, and the condo itself. The condo is in the perfect location, with the Intracoastal Canal off the front balcony and the Gulf off the back balcony. You are steps to a private fishing pier and the beach - what more could you want? And the sunsets are fabulous! The condo is clean, spacious and very homey, with books, toys, games, beach towels and more. Tina and John have thought of everything to make you comfortable, and they are so friendly and caring. Thanks so much, Tina and John; we can't wait to do it again next year!
My husband and I stayed at Footprints over Thanksgiving. This was our first time in the area and am so glad we selected this condo. It was great having 2 balconies, one overlooking the inter coastal waterway and the other overlooking the ocean where we dolphins playing in the morning and sunsets at night.
The master bath shower is very spacious and has new tile, the closet in the master bedroom is a walk in which is very nice to have.
Great location and within walking distance to several restaurants. We walked to dinner several nights.
Tina was very accommodating and easy to work with.
Would definitely recommend this condo if you are planning a stay at Indian Rocks Beach.
We have stayed at Footprints for three years. Our family is from 84 years old to 5 months old. The condo is beautiful and spacious, three bedrooms and two balconies, with a private staircase to the pool. One thing we love is that Tina and John have toys, portable crib, high chair, board games and so much more. My father has braces on his legs and walks with a cane or a walker. He is down at the pool or on the beach every day. Resteraunts and entertainment are within walking distance or a short drive. Tina and John have made Footprints are second home, we love it!!!
Minutes from Clearwater Beach! Variety of day cruises such as Pirate Cruise, Gambling, Dinner/Dancing, Dolphin Watching, etc, Theme parks such as Busch Gardens/Adventure Island Water Park, Disney/Sea World, Fabulous shopping ranging from up-scale boutiques to moderate stores minutes from condo, Golfing, Miniature Golf, Fine Dining along Gulf Boulevard where the Trolley takes you anywhere from Clearwater Beach to John's Pass.
