Luxury 5 Star Rated 2BR/2BA One Of A Kind Gulf Front Condo Right On The Beach!
About Debbie Kuehnert
Having been born and raised in Maryland, but living here for over 30 years, we are reminded everyday of how much we love Florida and why we moved here so many years ago. We love the weather, the beach, the sunsets, and the Florida lifestyle! It just doesn't get any better than this!
Debbie Kuehnert purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Debbie Kuehnert chose Independence Square
As long as we have lived here we always admired the Pier House because of it's unique appearance and construction qualities. In addition, the location is so perfect and convenient. So, of course, when we decided to look for a place on the beach which was close to home so we could use it often, we found our perfect place in unit #305. Although the appearance of the unit itself was quite outdated, we looked past all of that and headed right for the view of the beach - and were sold right away! My husband has a very creative mind, so we decided to 'go for it' and came up with 'our very own piece of Paradise'. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

A Beautiful place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Deb was very welcoming from the moment she met up with us to hand over the keys. We Could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. The view are stunning! The place is very well kept and you can tell that Deb cares about not only about her home but also her guests that stay there. From the fresh cut flowers on the dining table to the jar filled with candy. She has all of the amenities that you could possibly need. We loved our stay and We cannot wait to return!
This is absolutely, hands down, the best place to stay. The location is great and the condo is always fully stocked with everything you need. We will be back again. Deb is so wonderful to work with. We can’t say enough good things.
Immaculate condo, spectacular views & location in the heart of IRB
This was our 5th stay in Indian Rocks Beach and by far Deb’s condo was head and shoulders above the rest. From the overall beachy decor, handmade art & cleanliness, to being stocked with EVERYTHING you might need on your holiday, to the plethora of dolphins swimming right in front of the condo, to the amazing sunsets AND being able to walk to restaurants & stores, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Beach toys, bags, coolers, towels and chairs are provided and the beautiful beach is right at the doorstep. Pride of ownership is evident with all residents/guests we encountered and Deb was a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole stay. If this condo is available, BOOK IT NOW! Trust me.
Best Place We've Stayed
This was our 3rd year vacationing in the Clearwater area and although the first 2 places we stayed at were very nice, this was by far the best. Deb met us at the condo and gave us an overview and answered any questions. When the description said fully stocked, it wasn't kidding. There wasn't a thing we needed except food. Most places provide starter supplies, but Deb provided supplies that lasted our entire stay. The condo was very comfortable from the living area to the beds to the balcony furniture. The pool area was very nice and the beach was soft sand plus all the pool/beach items we needed were there. This will definitely be our top choice when we return to the area.
I'm happy to hear you had everything you needed to make your stay the best. I try to make sure I have a good supply of necessary items on hand, the things that are used often by everyone. We are sharing our home away from home and that includes anything that is in the condo. If it's there, it's yours to use during your stay. I appreciate you confirming that my description is accurate. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'll look forward to hearing from you when you are ready for your next trip to our beautiful IRB.
I didn’t believe it when Deb said “we have everything all you need is a swimsuit and sunscreen”.
After a couple of years I kept hearing my parents talking about Deb and her wonder condo. Since they were unable to go this year my wife and I decided to use the unit. My god the sunsets are beautiful, the condo lacks nothing from simple sugar to a beach umbrella and everything in between. We walk to dinner every night as the unit is close to everything. We had a spectacular time and we owe it all to Deb and her attention to every detail. We are already looking for sometime next year to bring the whole family as Deb has two spectacular units in the building. Thanks Deb!
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in Paradise! I am happy you had everything you needed to make your stay extraordinary. I aim to please - and I am glad you were! Details are very important to me and I'm happy you noticed and appreciated the little extras. And, you are most welcome! Hope to see all of the family next year!
this condo was amazing !!!!
we recently stayed at debs condo and it was great.it was totally furnished with anything you would need for the vacation.we plan to come stay here again sometime.
I KNOW THIS LOOKS LIKE A LOT TO READ, BUT IT IS FULL OF INTERESTING STUFF. SO PLEASE READ ON..... Enjoy great restaurants and drinking establishments within walking distance or a short drive. The original Crabby Bills (specializes in seafood, of course, but also offers land food items) is across the street. They usually have some type of live entertainment daily outside at the Loading Zone, which is open late and also serves breakfast daily. Jake's Cantina, Lu Lu's, PJ's Oyster Bar, Jimmy Guana's at the Holiday Inn Harborside Marina, Los Mexicano's, Slyce Pizza, Aqua Prime, JD's, and many other restaurants are just a short walk.
Our favorites for a really nice meal are GUPPY'S (indulge yourself with at least a dozen raw oysters, always served icy cold, fried oysters with tomato & corn tarter, the mussels, or any of their seafood entrees or daily specials which are always fresh & delicious) - Sit outside at the bar at SALT ROCK GRILL (for starters, a dozen icy cold raw oysters are must haves) then ask for a deep fried lobster tail, which is not on the menu, but they will make it for you - BACKWATERS on Sand Key (sit outside on the intercoastal waterway, and partake of the butter blackened NY strip or one of many terrific seafood dishes), and E & E STAKEOUT GRILL in Belleair (great steaks and daily specials, awesome pork chops, believe it or not, and the best escargot I've ever had, but not enough of them).
Must try our local Florida favorites - smoked fish spread, available at most restaurants on the beach, grouper sandwich, best at FRENCHY'S and DOCKSIDE DAVE'S (not much on atmosphere, but known for their black grouper sandwiches and the biggest onion rings you've ever seen), she-crab soup at Frenchy's, and Stone Crab which is seasonal Oct. - May.
Tropical Ice Cream shop, which features Hershey's ice cream and specialty coffee drinks, is directly across the street, next to Jake's Cantina.. If you take a walk on the beach first, or after, hopefully you can enjoy your scoops quilt free!
Ride the Trolley along Gulf Blvd. if you don't feel like driving. But, make sure you have plenty of time to spare. It goes from Clearwater Beach to St. Pete Beach and stops anywhere you would like along the way. Visit Johns' Pass Village in Maderia Beach for some souvenir shopping and eats. You are guaranteed to spot some dolphins in the Pass. It's a fun way to spend an afternoon. Visit Clearwater Beach (Voted #1) and eat at one of the Frenchy's restaurants or Hooters, or your choice of many others. Check out the Sunset Celebration at Pier 60 (not that you can't have your own from the balcony of our condo). Visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (Home of Winter the Dolphin). Secluded Caladesi Island State Park (accessible only by ferry) has super shelling as well as dolphin sightings. The Greek community of Tarpon Springs (about 45 minutes north) has some great restaurants and bakeries - must bring home some baklava! Stroll the shops and historic docks there - once the sponge-fishing capital of the world - and sail with St. Nicholas Boat Line to see guys in old fashioned wet suits and bell shaped diving helmets snatch sponges from the ocean floor. Enjoy a round of Golf or Putt-Putt. Try parasailing. Charter a boat for fishing or rent a boat for leisure from the marina at the Holiday Inn. There are lots of other charters available also from John's Pass, Clearwater Beach, or Bay Pines Marina. Take in a game and support our local sports teams - Rays Baseball (GO RAYS!), Buccaneers Football, Lightning Hockey.
Tampa area attractions such as Busch Gardens, Adventure Island Water Park, Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), International Mall, and Seminole Hard Rock Casino are all about a 45 minute drive.
Visit Derby Lane for some entertaining greyhound racing. Downtown St. Petersburg is a 30 minute drive. Visit the Dali Museum or Holocaust Museum, walk the waterfront and have dinner at one of many restaurants there. Our favorite is the Oyster Bar on Central Ave.
St. Armands Circle in Sarasota, about an hour drive, is a nice place to spend an afternoon shopping and eating (seems like that's what we do around here!). Ellenton Outlet Mall is on the way there.
Orlando area attractions (Disney, Epcot, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Discovery Cove, etc.) are about a 90 minute drive. Check out the Blue Man Group or Cirque de Soleil while in Orlando. There are several outlet malls there also.
Or, partake of my favorite activities of all - RELAX IN THE HAMMOCK SWING ON THE BALCONY, IN A CHAIR AT THE BEACH UNDER THE UMBRELLA, OR ON A NOODLE IN THE POOL OR GULF! Don't forget to have your favorite frosty beverage in hand! Life is good!
