Indian Rocks Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bed / 2 bath condo to sleep 6 right on the beach in quiet, charming location

Lovely 3-bedroom / 2-bathroom condo on the second floor of a quiet 15-unit complex, away from the crowds. Your balcony directly faces the Gulf of Mexico, so you can enjoy georgeous views of the sea and white sandy beach, the pelicans and other fascinating sea-birds, and the stunning sunsets. A private stairway leads to the heated pool (fenced all round to keep children safe) and the beach. The unit is fully equipped for all your holiday needs including towels, bed linen, and much, much more. Plenty of shops, restaurants and activities for the whole family are all within easy reach. Unit size approx 1375 sq ft. Air conditioning & central heating throughout, plus ceiling fans in the master bedroom, second bedroom and lounge.

The home has been thoughtfully furnished and equipped for the perfect holiday getaway.

IDEAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
A stunning location for a relaxing holiday. A lovely view of the Gulf coast from the rear of the property, particularly when the sun sets. Also a nice view of the brackish waterway at the front, from the master bedroom. We particularly liked watching the wildlife including dolphins and pelicans. Shame we never got to see a manatee, which can sometimes be seen in the waterway.
The accommodation is particularly nicely furnished, providing all the amenities you could require. It is well maintained and the agents provide a helpful service if you do have any questions. Once you have mastered the intricacies of the TV remote controls, there is also a good selection of satellite channels.
There is a nice selection of restaurants ,featuring locally caught fish, within a few miles either direction and not the usual chain restaurants that you see all along the main highways.
I would certainly recommend the property to others and would hope to return ourselves one day.

BRILLIANT BEACH HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
If you are interested in a brilliant beach holiday - look no further. This condo at West Coast Vista is very well kept, comfortable and has a beautiful view. We stayed there with our family of six - parents, grandparents and two teenagers - during Christmas 2011 and we just booked again for Christmas 2012! Sara, the owner, has always been accommodating to our needs and very swift in replies and the management company, Three Palms, has been quite helpful and expedient in fixing small things for us. Indian Rocks Beach is probably one of the best kept vacation secrets and is full of Old Florida charm, complete with delightfully casual bars or a slightly upper scale restaurant (e.g. Guppy's) where after a day at the beach you can enjoy a cold beer or a Chardonnay and the best fresh seafood on the planet!

condo is in a beautiful location, beach is wonderful, layout of condo is nice. Upkeep of condo needs more attention from 3 palms management, day we arrived there were ants all over kitchen counter called 3 palms they were aware there was a problem but thought it was fixed, never sent anyone to look even though they said they would call back(checked in Sat called office right away, never got back to us at all although noticed they tried to call wed at 5pm, by then we had bought spray ourselevs) Also the shower curtain in bathroom closest to kitchen had mold all accross the bottom, for $20 they should change it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We’re sorry there was some miscommunication with our management company; they arranged for the pest control company to call, and assumed the problem had been solved. Unfortunately ants can be a problem in this part of Florida, and the pest control treatment can take a few days to take effect. The regular treatment which is applied usually keeps on top of this issue, but sometimes the climate conditions mean there is a problem which needs some additional attention. Regarding the shower curtain, we would obviously replace this as soon as we are aware there is an issue, which is usually spotted by our housekeepers. However, they may occasionally miss things, so we are always grateful to our guests for advising the management company of anything that needs attention. This has now been replaced.

INDIAN ROCKS TRIP

  • 4 of 5
Overall this was a great place!! It had a lot of comforts of home - i.e. games to play, cable, nice washer and dryer. The setup and location was nice. The unit definitely needs a new sliding glass door. We could feel the wind when sitting on the couch (from the door not being sealed). All mattresses need to be replaced. I would advise taking your own washcloths, as the washcloths that the management companies provide are the equivalent of sand paper. This is something petty, but next time I will bring my own! Everything else in the unit was fine - the living room furniture was clean and new. The kitchen was supplied nicely with pots, spices, etc. Overall, it serves it's purpose - to have fun at the beach!!

This large air-conditioned condo is home from home and we recommend it highly. There is everything you need at the condo especially if you are going to 'self cater'. The excellent Publix supermarket is a five minute drive away. However, there are good restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive. The very long and often almost deserted silver beach is a few steps away from your door, while the pool (very warm!) is right outside. Inside the condo you will find that it is very homely, well equipped in all respects and has plenty of space, especially in the living area, where you can wander out onto the balcony to see the sun setting, spot a few dolphins and indulge in some excellent American wine. We have visited Florida many times over the years and this has been our most memorable visit yet. We shall certainly be back. Finally, take time out to visit the city of St Petersburg which is 30-40 minutes easy drive and some good shopping to be had. The highlight for us was the Salvador Dali Museum, although in effect it is a vast art gallery with a staggering exhibtion of Dali's work. Even children will enjoy it!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is very spacious and comfortable! It has three large sized bedrooms (2 x King & 1 x Twin) all fully furnished with modern boating/sea decor. Two big bathrooms. Open plan and fully equipped lounge/kitchen/diner which has great views of the sea. Laundry has washing machine, dryer, iron etc. All towels and linen is supplied. You don't need to bring anything - this condo is fully equipped and has absolutely everything! There is even outdoor toys for children (big or small!) to play with.. It is very comfortable and can easily accommodate six people. It is perfect for both couples (who don't mind children in the vicinity) and families with grandparents.
The pool environment is very relaxed and the neighbours are warm and friendly.. This is the ideal location for a 'beach' holiday, white refined sand, the water is so clear you can see the ocean floor. It is very safe for children as the ocean floor is flat and it does not get deep for miles out. The wildlife is amazing, while swimming in the sea we saw Dolphins, Manatees, little fish and baby Sting Rays. There is an excellent choice of restaurants/diners nearby. We also took advantage of the local boat hire which offers great packages. We enjoyed our time there so much we tried to book it for the following month however it was already gone! We will definitely stay here again.. The only trouble we have is highly recommending this place, purely because we will definitely return and would like the availability!
