About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This non-smoking unit is in a superb beachfront location and with two living rooms as well as two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two balconies and is ideal for larger families or two families sharing and wanting their own 'space'. There are just 15 units in the building and each one is accessed via a card-operated lift that takes you directly into the lobby outside your own condo. Furnished and equipped with style, the balcony overlooking the beach and the gulf is accessed via patio doors from living room one and the master bedroom. This is the perfect place to enjoy those wonderful sunsets and just watch life on this quiet unspoiled beach go by. There are stairs from this balcony down to the pool and the beach below, so you don't even need to take the lift!

The other balcony overlooking the intercoastal waters is accessed by the second living room and is a great spot to watch the sun come up in the mornings. The second bedroom also has views from the large windows over these waters. Most days, if you close the screens and leave the patio doors open on both balconies, a beautiful cool breeze wafts through the apartment - in fact, much of the time the air-conditioning is not even needed!

As well as a large flat-screen television and DVD in the main living room, there is a second TV and DVD in the second living room, and televisions in both bedrooms. There is also an iPod dock to enjoy your favorite music, Wi-Fi and a laptop table/chair to surf in comfort. There is a selection of books and board games for when you want to get out of the sunshine, and there's a crib and baby chair as well as some pool toys for the kids.

The master en-suite bathroom has a newly fitted shower door, and a large vanity unit with cupboards under where the new hairdryer is stored. The second bathroom has a tub as well as a shower.

Outside, there is a kidney-shaped pool and plenty of sun beds on the deck. There is a gate directly on to the beach which is unspoiled and generally a quiet place to relax, walk or go shelling. Allocated parking is undercover, and a number of good restaurants - from diners to fine dining - are all within a few minutes drive/walk of the condo.

We love our place on the beach - and we're sure you will too.

About Viv Young

We love to stay in the unit whenever we can, it's so very relaxing. I am a writer and this is the perfect place for me to catch up with my writing, while my husband loves to watch the seabirds and dolphins. We've seen eagles, osprey, buzzards and numerous other birds whilst just relaxing on the balcony, or walking on the quiet beach.

Viv Young purchased this condo in 2008

Why Viv Young chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We love this part of Florida and were looking for a property that took full advantage of both the intercoastal waterways and the beach. With a balcony overlooking both, we knew we had found our dream place when we stumbled on WEST COAST VISTA!

What makes this condo unique

We like to think that our unit is perfect not only for holidays, but is furnished to suit those looking for a longer term rental that feels like home. It is well equipped if you like to cook and eat indoors, but is just minutes away from the wonderful restaurants and diners nearby.


Very Good! 4/5 -

Happy Vacationer

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year in this unit. Love it! Took our granddaughter to Busch Gardens, which is only a 45 minute drive, and had a wonderful time. Loads of good restaurants and shopping in the area. A must place to visit is John's Pass Village and Boardwalk at Madeira Beach.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful place.

Rocky Start, Beautiful Finish!

  • 4 of 5

I posted a review upon our arrival to the condo last week. We were very disappointed, the condo was not ready for new guests. It had not been cleaned, and we were unable to contact the owners for resolution. We know now it was an anomaly. Something happened that should't have and I understand that measures were and are being made to resolve that from happening again in the future. However, it did not change our first impression nor the fact that we had to do the laundry, clean the bathrooms, sweep, mop and vacuum and basically lose our first evening here. What changed our impression was how the owners addressed the issue and our concerns. The next day while we were out, cleaners came in and polished this place wonderfully and even re-cleaned the bathrooms, and linens. Additionally, the owners refunded us some money and reserved a nice dinner for us at the nicest restaurant on the beach!

The Condo is really nice, not the newest nor the finest but is was just right for what we were looking for; is exactly as described and was in our price range. It has some pool chairs, and floats, books, wifi, tvs in every room, wonderful balcony's to enjoy sunrises and sunsets. everything works, is plenty spacious, a very private beach. We plan to return next year again. Please do not let our rocky start impede your consideration of this great condo at Indian Rocks. you will not be disappointed. Our rating for day one was Poor, but 6-7 were EXCELLENT!!

arrived to unclean condo

  • 1 of 5

We are sitting in the condo 2 1/2 hours after arriving. Keys were not in the box. Used spare key to get in via stairs. All the dirty linens are in the floor. No one has been here to clean. No extra linens and no way to contact owners. Have emailed 3 times with no response. No contact information for the cleaning people. . Extremely disappointed. Extremely! Hopefully this review will wake them in England.

Owner's Response: There was a very unfortunate mix-up with the cleaning of the unit, which we addressed immediately we were aware there was a problem. We also immediately remunerated the guests for any inconvenience, and paid for them to enjoy a complimentary dinner at a nearby restaurant of their choice. As these guests have now confirmed they are enjoying their vacation in the condo very much, we have also offered a special reduced rate if they choose to return next year, which they have indicted they may well take us up on. We were dismayed that such a thing happened but went out of our way to resolve the problem and ensure our guests were able to enjoy their vacation.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was described perfectly. My five year old granddaughter loved watching the dolphins play. During our stay, we made the drive to Disney World, my husband and I went to the casino in Tampa and to Tarpon Springs, where divers harvest sponges. There are several shops and restaurants here. The owner of the unit was easy to deal with. If we travel to the area this year, we would love to rent the unit again. I have one suggestion that a key lock be installed on the patio door. This is just in case the elevator card doesn't work and/or you forget to take it with you. Plus, it would be easier to access the unit via the stairwell when returning from the beach or pool.

Owner's Response: Always lovely to hear from our guests that they have enjoyed their vacation in our place on the beach, and thank you for you kind comments. We did provide a patio door key for renters' use, but it snapped. As we are hoping to replace the sliders this year, we've not replaced the key to the existing sliders yet, but it is a good point and we will look into it when we are there in the spring. We'd be delighted to welcome you back in the future.

Great location with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation to the Gulf, and we made a great choice. We loved the location with lots of beaches to explore and great restaurants to the north and to the south. It was very easy to find from the airport. Lots of space and all the kitchen items you need are in the unit. The description and photos are accurate, and working with the owner was a pleasure. Both the unit and the property were clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends looking for something in this area. What a relaxing week we enjoyed, watching beautiful sunsets, dolphins just off the shore, and searching for sea shells!

Great location and unit layout; needs significant upgrades.

  • 4 of 5

The listing description is very accurate, and the photos are very accurate. The two balcony, two living rooms layout is very unique and a very smart move by the developer. The beach location is great (about the middle of the beach strip of cities), and the pool very nice, also. With just 15 units, it was much quieter than large resorts tend to be. This unit, however, has been our first VRBO dissappointment. Although the pix are accurate, the detail is not available. The unit needs upgrades of all plumbing fixtures, "sliding" doors, kitchen appliances (new cabinets and granite counters would be a very nice upgrade, also), some of the main LR furniture, and the master BR furniture. There are many GREAT restaurants in the area (Keegan's, PJ's, Waltz, Sloppy Pelican, and Crabby Bill's or you can eat in the unit using the full kitchen (Crabby Bill's has a seafood shop next door). There isn't a great deal of activities in the area other than the beach and boating. For kids, the pool and beach would be great, but not much else in immediate area to entertain them. I would stay at this location again , but at another unit until this unit is upgraded.

Owner's Response: This is the first disappointing 'negative' we have had from a renter after two years of sharing our beautiful beach place with numerous happy vacationers. Our in-house guest book testifies to the many delighted guests who return year after year. We are very familiar with most of the other units and owners in our building and are entirely satisfied that ours compares favorably with these and other beach-front properties - we viewed many, many units before buying at West Coast Vista. Like the other owners, we reinvest constantly to improve and maintain the facilities and furnishings, sometimes having to replace items that go 'missing' too. We would never misrepresent the look or feel of our property - we not only show the maximum number of detailed photos of the unit, we ensure every potential renter is provided with a link to a virtual tour of every room and area of the condo, so I cannot see how we can possibly represent our home any more realistically than we do. The area is a tranquil one with plenty to do nearby if you want to seek it out. We tend to find whether it is families, newly-weds or seniors, the beach, pool, restaurants and general ambience are more than enough to delight visitors on a day to day basis with the added bonus of great places like Busch Gardens, zoos, parks etc all within easy driving distance. Perhaps the most honest recommendation is that we travel across from Europe to stay at our place whenever we can - with our family, friends or just the two of us. We love it!
