Independence Square Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Spacious, water-front (unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico) condominium with breathtaking views from the balcony and each bedroom! Enjoy the pristine beaches of Indian Rocks Beach, Florida.

This is one beach vacation you won't soon forget!! Relax and enjoy the panoramic views of sugar-white beaches and the sparkling Gulf of Mexico from the balcony of our gorgeous beachfront condo. One of ONLY six units in a nice, quiet complex, our top floor location -above one other unit- offers not only the quietest location, but also the best views! The condo has a relaxed, island-style decor. The location is only 20 minutes from the Clearwater/St. Petersburg Airport and 30 minutes from Tampa.

Spend a lazy day in our crystal-clear pool or mix an ice cold drink and sit by the island-style tiki bar or under the palm-topped tables as you watch a game of shuffleboard or just soak up the sun's rays.

The unit has a fully-equipped kitchen, if your vacation plans involve cooking, and there is room for 6 people to dine comfortably at the table, and 2 more at the counter. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and its own private bathroom, walk-in closet and cable television.

The guest bedroom has a set of comfortable twin beds. The guest bath has been nicely decorated and is right next to the bedroom. There is a cable television and internet for your entertainment needs.

Numerous attractions nearby include Busch Gardens (30 minutes), Disney World (90 minutes), golf, aquariums, art museums, planetarium, great restaurants, water sports, rentals, and loads of beach fun!!

By far, one of the best beach condos you will find anywhere!

The unit is non-smoking. Small, quiet pets are considered. $100.00 pet fee.

Beautiful week and wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic experience and Leslie was really outstanding to deal with. The condo is bright and spacious with everything that one could possibly need. The view is out of this world and we had multiple dolphin sightings daily as we sat out on the balcony of this condo. We are big fans of Indian Rocks Beach, as it's close to all the hustle and bustle one might want and yet this beach town is the lovely place to come back to each day. Leslie's condo is close to amazing restaurants. We enjoyed a fabulous Easter dinner at Salt Rock, sea dooing out of John's Pass, Cuban dinner at the amazing Columbia in Clearwater, mini-golf at Smuggler's Cove in Indian Shores, Blue Jay's spring training game in Dunedin and of course just hanging at the beach. Slyce is also great for pizza and the CVS is a mere 5 minute walk up the street. It took us only an hour to arrive at the condo after spending a week at Disney. A great way to wind down. Leslie has multiple towels in the condo, along with a washer/dryer and the condo was well cleaned. We used the gas grill a couple of times and the pool was warm and well cared for. There was a company that came (that I saw) a few times to check in and give it an extra clean. There are also loungers that you can take down to the beach. This condo has very few units making it an extra special experience. The other families were friendly and quiet. The taller bigger buildings in Treasure Island (or surrounding area) are not for us. It's wonderful to have an owner that is readily available to answer your questions or to check in on you. I found the whole experience to be easy, professional and friendly. We highly recommend this condo! Have a wonderful time if you do - we were sad to drive home.

Excellent location and view!

  • 4 of 5

Leslie was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. The condo was in a great location, within walking distance of several great restaurants, an ice-cream shop, a donut shop, kayak rental and a little shopping. There was a nice walk to a nature preserve about a mile away. The beach was very nice and the view amazing. Parking was under the building and out of the sun! Leslie accommodated our dog and there was a small park very close for use to walk to for potty time - but watch out for the black snake! This part of Sand Key is narrow so we rented kayaks and easily went from the gulf to the inter-coastal to experience both. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is parts of the interior of the condo are a bit worn - but the place was very clean.

Good location, large condo.

  • 4 of 5

Well located halfway between Clearwater and St Pete. Condo is right on the beach with great views. Heated pool, wide open beach. Large family room and kitchen, great for couples or a family. NOTE: no elevator, so you have to carry your luggage and groceries up the stairs. Also, no hair dryer or any toiletries provided, so bring your own! The condo building was quiet, but you can walk two minutes down the street to restaurants and bars for all the noise you want! Owners were very nice and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to accommodate our renters if they should need something during their stay. Just ask! We have provided blow dryers in the past, however, they sometimes "walk away" so perhaps an "attached blow dryer" is best! The condo is well located, but quiet, as mentioned! There are several restaurants just a few steps away! As far as the elevator, we sold our last condo with an elevator because of the noise associated with it at all hours of the day and night. We love our renters and have many who return year after year!

GREAT place to stay right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend booking this property - you will not be disappointed! The accommodations were beautiful with a tropical/Tommy Bahama feel to it and plenty of room. The property is well kept with all the amenities you would need to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The balcony is large with a beautiful view of the gulf. The beautiful beach itself is only a few steps away. The pool is heated and you may use the large propane grill if you like. They provide floats and chairs if you need them. I cannot say enough great things about this property and we are definitely considering booking it again. Working with Leslie, the owner, was extremely pleasant and she bends over backwards to make certain your stay is the best it can be. There are good restaurants within walking distance and Clearwater is only about 10 minutes away. Crabby Bills, Slyce, and Kooky Coconut were excellent places to grab a bite. You can also rent paddle boards across the street and a boat if you like down the street as well. Great place to stay, look forward to doing it again!!

Best Of The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Florida to attend our sons wedding and we wanted to stay in a nice place on the gulf. This condo exceeded our expectations! It was furnished so lovely with a Tommy Bahama theme and the view from the condo was awesome. We walked on the beach each day and enjoyed the local restaurants. Leslie the owner, was so sweet to work with, she made everything so easy for us. We would definitely return to this condo in the future when we visit Florida.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was what we expected and more. The view was great, the pool area was quiet, the beach was perfect. We traveled as a family of 4. The condo is spacious. There is a nice grill and refrigerator in the pool area. The parking area is covered. Plenty of dining choices within walking distance. We had a great week with dolphin and manatee sightings. Plenty of pool chair/loungers as well a loungers for the beach too. The owner is a joy to work with. Would definitely stay here again.
