FINALLY ... REAL LUXURY RIGHT ON THE BEACH!

Indian Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Casa de B.O.B. (Best on Beach)! If you do not want to sacrifice luxury while vacationing at the beach then this is the vacation condo for you! Think 'high end boutique hotel' located right on the beach with every accomodation thinkable.

This is a newly remodeled, completely renovated, luxurious 2 bedroom (with 2 king beds)-2 bathroom condo with panoramic direct facing Gulf front views. Unit has over $100K in renovations and new furnishings, and is decorated with contemporary flair, a little local art and a bit of Rock-n-Roll edge.

Unit contains the latest amenities possible including: free wifi, state of the art flatscreen Samsung TV's with a 55' SmartTV in the living room, 40' flat srcreen Samsung SmartTV in master bedroom and 36' flatscreen Samsung TV in 2nd Bedroom. All flat screens are wall mounted ... no wires and cables. Enjoy movies at home with DVD player or streaming Netflix movies to the smart tvs with our netflix account. Or, if you like, listen to tunes from your smartphone on the Bose SoundDock.

Unit has two balconies, one off living area and another off master bedroom, which open up to crashing waves and jumping dolphins. No vertical blinds to deal with here ... unit comes with very rare remote controlled electric solar shades in both living room and master bedroom. Best of all, unit has brand new 'retractable' sliding glass doors in living room that disappear into the wall giving you a 'wide open' view of the Gulf from living, dining and kitchen areas. You have to see it to believe it!

The kitchen and bathrooms have been completely remodeled with new cabinetry and granite countertops. Kitchen is completely equipped with high-end stainless steel appliances and upgraded cookware. Both bathrooms have new stacked stone showers and the master shower is glass enclosed. Bathrooms come stocked with premium towels and also have brand new comfort-height, no-slam commodes.

Additionally, you will find a contemporary bar area with floating shelves, wine cabinet and under lighting in living room.

Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated and well appointed with luxurious bedding, remote controlled bedside wall sconce lighting, and new ceiling fans. Closets in both bedrooms have been nicely remodeled by California Closets with plenty of build-ins and storage.

This unit comes with everything you need for an outstanding beach vacation, including plush beach towels, sturdy Tommy Bahama beach chairs, big beach umbrella, portable cooler and a multitude of beach toys.

The 'Indian Shores/Indian Rocks Beach' area is one of America's best kept secrets.

It is centrally located between St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa. Universal, Disney World, Epcot, Hard Rock Casino and Busch Gardens just a short drive away.

TRULY THE BEST ON THE BEACH!!

  • 5 of 5
We had two families with three children and still found the condo to be spacious and perfect for us. Everything was topnotch. The appliances and all the small details made our stay relaxing and gave us very little reason to ever leave the beach. There were tons of towels, blankets, and pillows provided, dish and laundry detergent, toilet paper, etc. I've never rented a place that provided all of that. I actually loved doing laundry in the high-end machines and we cooked dinners in the gourmet kitchen every night, which saved us a ton of money. It was right on the beach, and toys for our kids were provided, as well as plenty of beach chairs. The closets were huge, beds were comfortable, and everything was elegant, yet still made us feel right at home. The balconies were breathtaking. I'm reluctant to ever stay at the same place twice, but it was so hard to leave that we are all still considering a return trip! It was quiet and secluded (a must for us) but close enough to attractions in Clearwater and Tampa and great restaurants are nearby. It is the perfect getaway for couples or families.

GORGEOUS, CONVENIENT, SPACIOUS, LUXURY

  • 5 of 5
We decided on this location after searching the internet. We usually stay in a home further up the beach, this was less room but newer. From the moment we arrived, we were very impressed. Right on the beach, covered parking, short distance from parking to stairs and the beach is right in front. The condo remodel was breathtaking and the views from the balcony were even better. Beth checked in with us prior to our arrival, and also called to make sure everything was to our expectations. Beth really thought of everything: stocked storage with beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, Tommy Bahama beach towels, and the artwork was fabulous! I cannot say enough about this place. It is our favorite Florida destination so far. The only problems, was the kids didn't want to leave. We will be back!

RELAXATION WRAPPED IN LUXURY WRAPPED IN GULF BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
Casa De BoB is ideal for those who want an intimate setting with the Gulf just outside your patio door, and the sound of waves – not tourists. The interior of the condo is just as advertised – luxurious and chic. Every amenity is provided, and everything is FIRST CLASS. From the smart TV to the remote controlled sunshades, and right on down to the Kitchen Maid cooking utensils. When we spend money on vacations we like to be pampered. Casa De BoB pampered us with its luxurious furnishings, plush towels, his and hers bathrobes, and a fully equipped kitchen with the latest in décor and appliances.
Casa De BoB, or “1B” as it is also called, is just above the private numbered-space parking which turned out to be extremely handy. We could leave the things that we needed for “on the beach” right in our car, which was parked right next to the walkway out the deck and dunes. We didn’t have to lug beach items down from our unit and then find out we’d forgotten something. The unit has a storage closet in the parking garage with beach toys and floats, but we’ve outgrown those a long time ago. Sunscreen and good hat are what we need these days. A hose nicely coiled in a hose box was just a few feet from our car space and provided easy wash-down of the Love Bug decorations we collected on our way over to Indian Shores.
The unit is on the “first floor”, which is a few steps up from the parking garage beneath the building, so that when you are on your balcony patio, you are literally 10-12’ over the beginnings of the dunes and the short walkway through the dunes to the beach. We felt very connected to the beach and Gulf. When we’ve stayed in high rise condos in New Smyrna and Daytona we were either up so high that the view is like picture taken from afar, or we were on a lower floor where you become part of the tourist mobs around the pool, the obligatory Tiki bar, the exercise room, and the sand-strewn lobbies and elevators. You may call them “amenities”, but for a senior couple seeking relaxation, beauty, and luxury they are just distractions.
Owner Beth is the greatest. She loves dogs – hers and yours. There’s a reasonable extra fee when you bring the pups, but it’s less than boarding would be, and it’s a joy to have them with you just like at home. There are only 3 sensible “house rules”. The unwritten rule, I believe, is “Have fun, treat the place as your own and with respect, and ENJOY!” Which we did.

CASA DE B.O.B. FAR EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS! :)

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose this property for a romantic December getaway, and we were 100% pleased with the beach, the town, the property, and the condo itself. The owner was extremely helpful and has obviously put much time, effort, energy and fun into decorating and maintaining Casa De B.O.B. Indian Shores is a great beach town, with as many lanes for bikes and pedestrians as there are for cars. We like that! The owner also provided helpful information on places to go in the area. We especially enjoyed Indian Shores Coffee, and Keegan's ROCKS! I also recommend Beach Yoga Pinellas- Yoga right on the beach, and I was fortunate enough to spot a frolicking Dolphin. The owner provides nice extras such as beach towels, beach chairs, and more. There are no words for how spectacular the sunsets are, and what a joy to be able to enjoy them from either of the balconies, not to mention being able to lounge in bed while watching the waves roll in. We made it our home for the week, and it really felt like it. This won't be our last visit! Thank you Beth, for everything! Love, Jay and Brenda

ABSOLUTE BEAUTIFUL CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We vacation at Indian Shore every year, and we will defiantly be back to Casa Da Bob next year. The condo is immaculate; including high end appliances, luxury bedding and linens. the condo was very well stocked with all the amenities needed. We loved the decor and felt like we were home. The beach and weather was also beautiful. Thank you for a great 2013 vacation and can't wait to return in 2014!
