Perfect, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vrbo/homeaway experience and it was amazing. We brought our two young boys and the condo was perfect for them. Only one flight of steps up, no waiting for an elevator or walking a long distance from the car to the condo. There was plenty of room for us to spread out, and it was so nice to have a separate bedroom for the youngest to nap in. The condo even had a pack n play and booster seat for our toddler.

The beach is very quiet. The weather was perfect the first week of May. Mid 80's, sunny, and the ocean was plenty warm to swim in. The beach is clean and the waves were mild during our stay. It's a quick walk (about a block) from the condo to the public access. We really appreciated the beach buggy, water toys, chairs, beach towels, as we were flying in and didn't pack much.

We spent most of our mornings at the beach, then I would take my older son to the pool while our youngest and my husband napped back at the condo. We had the pool to ourselves most days. Everyone we met at the condo was very friendly, although the complex was very quiet while we were there and so we did not see a ton of people.

We did take a day to go to Orlando, and the drive is about 2-2.5 hours. I much prefer Indian Shores to the surrounding area and would definitely go back. A two lane road runs through the community, and it is much slower paced than Clearwater and St. Pete's.

My favorite part of the condo was the dolphins. While I never did spot any from the patio, I did see at least one every time I sat near the fishing pier. Thrilling! I only ever had to wait 10-15 minutes before spotting them. I could've sat there for hours if my family would've let me.

Michelle is very friendly and easy to work with. I really appreciated all the clear instructions and information leading up to our stay and once we arrived at the condo. The condo was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. We went to Publix our first day and bought sandwich fixings and snacks for the week. We enjoyed breakfast from the patio, picnic lunch on the beach, and dinner out most days. There are no shortage of fantastic, local restaurants close to the condo, and Michelle leaves you with an extensive list of recommendations. I would definitely go back.

Best month ever!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of Feb. at this condo and it is wonderful! In fact after the 2nd week of being there we starting thinking we "had" to come back next year! As described, this condo has everything including owners that live near and can come by if needed. Wayne came by to adjust and make sure the garage door was working! We will pack less next year when we return here because they truly do have all you need for a relaxing and wonderful vacation. It is a beautiful condo....we wish it was ours!

Spectacular condo that is exactly as shown!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable surroundings for 2 couples...

Everything was made so simple by the attention to detail from owner Michele. From the moment I enquired about her poperty I knew I was speaking to an attentive and reliable person.

The first impression of the condo when we walked in was spectacular, exactly as the photo's show and we were all thrilled with our choice for our vacation. Close to grocery store's for stocking up on food and alcohol (Florida food and alcohol selection is varied and inexpensive) As we were staying in a condo for this part of our vacation we decided to take advantage of some home cooking and we were delighted in the relaxing upscale enviroment to enjoy our meals. Food preparation was simple due to a well stocked and modern kitchen, a BBQ option was an added bonus. We sat at the dining room table for our meals and enjoyed a glass of wine or two on the balcony watching dolphins several times during our week long trip. The beach accross the street was fantastic; I love the beach and was very happy with the condition of the sand, the water and we even saw some rays jumping above the waves! The condo has a wagon, beach chairs, towels, cooler, everything needed and makes walking to the beach such a simple thing. We took bike rides and stopped for a drink at JD's Restaurant early in the morning ha ha a new experience but when we noticed happy hour starts at 6am we just could not resist the experience. We also took a bike ride in the opposite direction and stopped for lunch at Conch Republic; freshest fish tacos and excellent service. Ask Michelle for recommendations she will happily provide. A prepared binder is available in the condo that is your own private coincierge service, activities, restaurants all outlined so you can enjoy the area and all it has to offer. Laundry facilities with soap and fabric softener provided, dish soap, TP you name it is is all there. You really just need your toiletries and your clothes. All four of us would definatley go back to this jewel of a condo rental; thanks for everything Michele....

Amazing!!!!!! Amazing!!!!! Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

An Amazing place to stay! It's like being in your own home without the worry. Spacious, extremely clean, extremely comfortable and has everything you'll need for a great vacation. Better than a hotel! Top of the line amenities, fully stocked full size kitchen, King size beds with comfortable mattresses and comfy bedding, large bathrooms. She supplies you with books, games, movies, bikes, beach wagon, beach chairs & umbrella, pool toys, and tons more. You don't have to worry about a thing. Michele (the owner) thought of everything, it's all there. She treats you like you are one of the family. The unit has the best of both worlds. You have the Intercoastal waters on one side of the condo and the ocean on the other. The location is fabulous. Located in a residential area, so you don't have to deal with hotel traffic. Tons of wonderful restaurants, loads of shopping, and all the fun tourist things are close by. We will definitely come back. Highly recommended!!!!!

Indian Shores Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this condo was perfect! The listing description was extremely accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities and extras.

Michele was great to work with. She always replied to my emails and phone calls very quickly and provided great customer service (upon arrival she phoned and made sure we had everything we needed).

When we arrived at the condo, there were snacks and pasta with sauce all ready for us to make for supper (very much appreciated since we arrived late in the evening and were starving).

Everything in the condo was extremely clean. It was very spacious with lots of room for our family of four. There was everything there that you needed for the beach and pool including a wagon to take all the toys, chairs, cooler, towels down to the beach!

They even provided bikes!

I would definitely come back and would recommend this condo to my family and friends
