Thanks for viewing our listing. We are a Tampa family with kids between the ages of 8 & 20. This last year we decided that we could use a 'decompression' chamber from our busy work & school lives & looked for a beach home. We ALL had a part in choosing & preparing this amazing condo to suit our needs. We think you'll love it as much as we do...& will want to come back again!

Nina & Family

Nina purchased this condo in 2012

When we were looking for a beach home, we viewed properties as far away as 100 miles from our Tampa home. Initially we thought we only wanted to be directly on the Gulf beach, but then we saw Captain's Cove! It's truly the best of all water getaways. And Indian Shores is a beautiful, quaint town with some awesome dining experiences just blocks away. The kids in our family absolutely love this setting & condo! It's private, quiet, yet minutes from revved up activities (although we go mainly to relax & enjoy each other). We hope to share our beautiful getaway with a select few vacationers each year. Let us know if you're interested!

We just can't get enough of sitting on the beautiful balcony, overlooking the water & wildlife. The long walks on the beach, beautiful sunsets, watching the dolphin from our dock, eating fresh grouper sandwiches in the local outdoor restaurants...we love it all! We've upgraded this spacious condo & added the latest electronics & wi-fi...guaranteed to WOW the socks off of you.

Heavenly Escape - Perfect all around

Perfect escape from freezing cold Canadian winter. We arrive at Captains Cove Christmas Eve and were met by Nina, who took us upstairs to her home. We had seen the pictures online and knew it would be nice but were still happily surprised. Wow! The unit was just pristine. Everything was beautifully laid out and all our needs had been anticipated. The view from the balcony (a really big balcony, it should be noted) was outstanding. We spend many an hour gazing over the water from that balcony. We cannot thank you enough for the opportunity of letting us stay in your home and hope to return one day.

Owner's Response: Providing a special Christmas retreat for your family gave us a lot of joy - especially sharing our home with such a nice family! We love seeing the amazement on our guests' faces when they get their first view of our home and the great water view from the living room and balcony. We do hope you'll come back again...thanks again for choosing us!
Best Regards, Nina and Family

BEST CONDO EVER!

  • Submitted: Dec 5, 2013

We stayed a this condo for 2 and a half months. It was the best condo we have ever rented. It was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities we could ever want. All you had to do was bring food and move in. It had all the cleaning supplies, washing supplies and cooking and storage items you need. The view is fantastic and we saw dolphins all the time. The owner is a gem and great to deal with. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: So great to know that we fulfilled your expectations...and more! We are constantly amazed by the wildlife and terrific beaches. The slow pace and beauty of Indian Shores is just what we need, too. We really appreciate guests like you two and sincerely hope you'll come back to see us.

Best wishes, Nina & Family
(P. S. the weather's terrific! where else can you find 70's and 80's in mid December??)

Wonderful Place to Stay!!!!

From the first moment driving over the bridge into Indian Shores, I knew, without a doubt, that we made the right decision to stay here. Nina awaited our arrival at the condominium with a huge smile on her face and a welcoming atmosphere once escorted upstairs. She made this weary, traveling family of four feel right at home upon immediate arrival. Nina made her home our home....The pictures on the website really does not do the place justice, as the view of the waterway is unparalleled, the kitchen spacious and well-stocked, and the tiled bathrooms roomy (with superb water pressure). The beds were comfy and the televisions were magnificient!!! We used this condo as a home base to explore the many riches and splendors of the Gulf Coast. Thank you so much Nina and family for allowing us to make wonderful family memories.
Owner's Response: We loved having you stay! As you reported to us, the weather was terrific each day and even the manatee and dolphin performed on cue. We are so blessed to have the beautiful Gulf Coast available to us - no other spot like it, for sure! Thank you for choosing our home as your "home base" and for the kind remarks in our guest register - come back soon!!

Comfort, Convenience and Peacefulness - a winning Trio!

Our first time snowbird experience was most enjoyable. So enjoyable we plan to return next year! Indian Shores is a great little community and our condo was comfortable from the get go. The heated pool allows swimming even on cooler days and the intercoastal vista is peaceful with a variety of waterfowl, sunrises and boaters to watch. The many wonderful restaurants, walking and bike paths, beaches and proximity to other places of interest make this locale and condo a desirable place to "wait out" Michigan winters. Thank you and we look forward to our next stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for being such great guests! And so glad you got to enjoy Zumba at the Town Hall - plus other great activities there. Indian Shores is a great little town and such a pristine getaway. Our beautiful condo is really a home away from home, right? Thanks for choosing us for next year too!

What a great condo!

This place is even better than it looks in the photos! The balcony and it's constantly changing view is the most relaxing place.... Nina was terrific to deal with: most helpful and accomodating. There is tons to do on the island: The Pub, Guppy's,and the Tapas bar were a few of our favourites. Day trips to Tarpon Springs, Fort De Soto Park and Gulfport were tops with us. The Saturday farmers' market in St. Pete's was a treat with our fully equipped kitchen (except for a missing Tea Pot!!!). The apt. was really well-stocked with beach towels and toys and extra linens. The beach across the street was spectacular, especially at sunset (another joyful daily activity)....
A perfect retreat.

Owner's Response: We love our Canadian guests! This time we learned the difference between tea kettles and tea pots (yes, we'll be adding a tea POT). Seriously, the weather here in Indian Shores is really amazing in January. The dolphin have been very active. Pack your shorts and flip flops and come on down!
