Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Tina,



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.



Warmly, Carol

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.

A WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
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 found the unit clean,neat,well furnished & tastefully decorated.The building is located at a nice spot offering beautiful views of sunset & sunrise.Photographs posted on unit's website do reflect real thing.
The owner/manager was sincere & prompt . Our dis comfort with Soft mattres,s was quickly resolved by replacing it with a new one .So was dish washer replaced due to water leakage .Over all we were very pleased & happy with the care & attention we received that made our stay a pleasant one .
We hope to come again to this beach front condo at Indian Rocks beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 Star review. In the past ten years we have tried our best to please our guests by providing all the comforts of home. You both have made it such a pleasure to make the necessary changes during your vacation. Your communication throughout your stay made it possible to bring the unit up to the standards our guests have come to expect. As our busy summer comes to an end, we are continuing to update and refresh the condo. Be sure and check out our new photos for just some of the changes since your stay; new washer/dryer have been added to the collection of updated appliances and new couches are on their way. John and I plan to take a mini vacation to see exactly what additional work needs to be done. I look forward to hearing from you soon with your new vacation dates. All the best to both of you and thank you for making my job so easy. Sincerely, Tina Altieri

FIRST TIME, NOT THE LAST TIME

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with this vacation condo. We rented this condo for the first time for the month of February, 2014. We can write an educated review because we've been coming to the Indian Rocks/Indian Shores location for ten plus years and have stayed at two other locations.

Footprints is a beautiful home away from home. Well appointed, well maintained and well equipped. It's all that the on-line description says. The location provides enjoyable views from the beach side to the intra coastal side. In fact that's one of the strong attractions of this condo. You can enjoy the sunrise and the sunset and never leave the condo. Bedrooms, family room, kitchen and dining areas were all comfortable and pleasant to use.
The owners were very helpful in payment arrangements, arrival accommodations and departure convenience. Further they were easy to work with throughout the visit without imposing on our vacation. They are genuinely nice folks.

The unit's swimming pool was very nice providing a handy laid back gathering place for friends and neighbors to socialize. Right off the pool was an easy but private access to the beach. We used it often.
Our strongest recommendation of course is that during our second week there, we signed up for next year.

OUR LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at John and Tina's condo for the last two years the month of January. Every year they have made upgrades to the condo that we love so very much. Our children join us for one week and my husbands parents also come for a week. The location and the condominium are a perfect fit for young and old alike. Our grandsons were 18 months old and 6 years old. It was truly unbelievable that John and Tina could have everything and more for both of the children. Pac-n-play, high chair, beach toys, noodles, buckets with shovels and baskets for the kids. My father-in-law uses a walker and had no problem going to the beach and pool every day. Very easy access for a handicapped person. There are nice restaurants and bars that have live music day and night that we walked to from the condo. There is also a fabulous bakery within walking distance as well that my mother-in-law frequented daily. My daughter, grandson and myself rented beach bike cruisers and rode for miles. Lovely watching the dolphins as we were riding. The rest of our family went fishing every day in the gulf and the inter-coastal waterway on our own private dock. Needless to say, they had and unbelievably great time.
My husband and I are counting down the days until January 4, 2014. Thank you John and Tina for making your home our home as well. If you love serenity and beauty you will love Footprints at West Coast Vista. Give Tina a call and book today!!!!!

FAMILY VACATION 2013

  • 5 of 5
The Footprints vacation Hideaway was the perfect location for our family vacation! The accommodations were perfect! Waking up to the beautiful sunrise on the Intercoastal side of the unit and watching the spectacular sunsets on the Gulf side were highlights of our week. We loved the peaceful sound of the waves all day long. It couldn't have been better! The condo was the perfect size for our family of six, and we had all the comforts of home -- away from home! Thank you for the best vacation ever!

WONDEFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We booked the condo for our family, myself and my husband, and 3 daughters (teens). As soon as we opened the door we felt welcomed! The condo was clean and nicely decorated, and appointed with everything you would need in a home away from home. Tina, the owner, was so attentive and kind, and we were so appreciative that she provided the necessities needed to get us through the day without having to immediately go out to the store. The location is perfect for all ages, with stores and restaurants within walking distance, and only a short drive to Clearwater if you are looking for a busier area. We actually went on a dolphin watch tour in Clearwater (Tampa Bay) and they were close enough to touch. John's Pass is also a nice little town 10 minutes away for shopping and dining. However, our favorite part of the vacation was the BEAUTIFUL beach with powdery white sand, and the clean, warm waters of the Gulf. The owners also provided MANY beach items (umbrellas, beach towels and chairs, shovels and all of the molds for making sand castles). The condo was perfect and we truly felt it was a home away from home. We also liked that it was in a building with only 16 units (not a high rise), and a few days we had the beach almost to ourselves. We spent countless hours on the balcony as well, watching the gorgeous sunsets. Thank you John and Tina for sharing your little slice of paradise!
