Spent a fabulous two week vacation in this condo. I live only two miles from Indian Rocks Beach but I love to spend my vacation living right on the beach. There is no reason to spend thousands$ to go anywhere else. Best beaches in the world are right here. The unit was exactly as it appears in the photos. It was very clean and well maintained. The building is secured. However, because there is an electronic lock on the door, the deadbolt has been disabled and that made me uncomforatable. All amenities needed were there, including an abundance of beach chairs, rafts, noodles, floats and toys. The kitchen is very nicely equipped - modern appliances and plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, pots, etc. Bathroom towels are thin and small (like in a cheap hotel). Nicer towels would make it feel more luxurious. Great location directly on the beach. Within walking distance to great restaurants (Guppy's, Keegans, Pinky's Ice Cream Shop) and short drive to others. The beach renourishment made it a shell collector's paradise.
I did not care for the layout of this unit and would not rent it again. The entryway, dining room and kitchen are dark and a long way from the living room. You have to walk down a long hallway to finally see the beach. Can't converse from the kitchen with friends and family in the living room. There are benefits to it being an end unit in that there are extra windows in the living room making it very bright, and a window in the kitchen.
Suggestions for the owner: Update both bathrooms. Enlarge the shower door in the master bath to let in more light and add a second shower head. It is a very large, dark shower but there is plenty of room for two. Add cable TV to the kitchen.
Overall, it is a really nice condo. If the distance of the kitchen from the living room is not an issue for you, then I highly recommend this unit. The location, beach access and beach views are spectacular.
