Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 5-6

Located directly on the beach in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. Our balcony has an unobstructed view of the beach, so you get a front row seat to watch the sunsets over the Gulf. The condo is close to the water, so hauling beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys down to the beach is as easy as it is going to get. The private elevator access from our balcony is also useful when hauling items! Our condo is on the first level (up one flight of stairs). Directly in front of our condo is a lovely lawn and the beach dunes, so you are not directly above the pool area. The complex pool is beachfront, in front of the building next door to ours, so pool noise is minimal on our balcony. The complex only has 18 units, so the pool does not get overcrowded. The pool is heated, and the there are lounge chairs and tables/chairs available for your use on the pool deck.

Our condo (1130 sq ft) is a well maintained, very clean 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom unit that is an ideal set up for families or groups with up to 4 adults. The master has a queen-sized bed, the 2nd bedroom has two twin beds. The master bath has a shower, the 2nd bath has a combination shower/tub. There is a full-sized, pullout couch in the living room. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, cooking utensils, various glasses, mugs, even plastic glasses to take to the pool and beach. Beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and a huge bin of beach toys are ready for you to use. The condo is also fully stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, dish soap, dish washing soap. laundry soap - all those items you'd rather not have to shop for on your vacation. There is a washer/dryer in the unit. We also have a pack-n-play crib and portable high chair in the condo for families with younger children. The condo is very kid friendly - no sharp corners or fragile decorations. Electrical outlet plugs are also available.

There are several restaurants within walking distance of the condo, including a french bakery, and many restaurants serving seafood (of course!), italian, and thai cuisine. Indian Rocks beach has so many great places to eat, you could stay within a mile of the condo for breakfast/lunch/dinner if you wanted to.

Our condo is about a 40 minute drive from the Tampa airport. The Clearwater/St. Pete airport is a 20 minute drive. Other attractions that are within a 30-45 minute drive include Raymond James Stadium, Tropicana Field, Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium and the Lowry Park Zoo. Clearwater (home to the dolphins Winter and Hope) is only a few miles north of the condo. It is almost a two hour drive to Disney, so it is possible to take a day trip to Orlando - if you are very adventurous.

There is No Smoking and No pets allowed in the unit at any time. Minimum stay is 7 nights, and we rent Sat-Sat during most of the year.

We love our piece of paradise and enjoy being able to share it with others, at a very competitive price for the area. Please contact us with any questions you may have - we look forward to hearing from you! Please email before booking to ask about possible reduced rates.

Fantastic family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo for a young family!! It was so convenient to have a pack N play and booster seat for out daughter. The private elevator was awesome to drag all the kids' toys to the beach too! The condo was clean and it was a pleasant surprise to see some toiletries and cleaning products already available in the condo. Jen was so easy to reach when we had a question. The kids loved the pool too. We loved the area as well. A nice and quiet town with many kid-friendly restaurants. We recommend this place to our friends all the time, and can't wait to rent again some day!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the BEST choice we could have ever made. Everything you need is included from Beach toys, to linens, to dining ware etc. All you need to bring is your bathing suit. The Beach is wonderful, clean and not overly crowded. The pool is perfect, the sunsets are AMAZING! We will definitely be back again next year. Eric and Jen are awesome!

A great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

I had to admit I was sceptical but I'm so glad we booked this condo. The owners were very nice and the little extras they provided made the experience that much more enjoyable. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing stay. We always prefer the buildings with as few condos as possible, 12&under are always the best and for the price verses what you get there is not a better place to rent. Indian Rocks has a smaller feel than Clearwater but is only 5 minutes away if you prefer to visit the commercialized attractions, & the beach is less crowded a big plus for relaxation. You are less than 10minutes from anything that you need food, dancing, ect... Favorite places: Cafe de Paris, Keegans, light house doughnuts, St Pete Bagel, Sheppards, Mickey Quinns, PJs Oyster bar.

Great Location, Excellent Condo, Friendly Owners

  • 5 of 5

LOCATION: This condo was just a few steps from the beach. I cannot emphasize enough just how close you are to the water - a 2minute walk (tops) from the front door to the warm waters of the Gulf. This was perfect for my parents (in their 60s) and my daughter (5). Their was no lugging beach toys and chairs to the point of exhaustion. This area of IRB is quiet, with little traffic, and perfect for families. However, it is not isolated. There are convenience stores and a variety of restaurants within walking distance, and major grocery stores, gas stations, and chain restaurants are about 2 miles away.

CONDO UNIT: First of all, the unit balcony off the living room gives an uninstructed view of the Gulf, and every evening you will have a front row seat to the most awesome sunset ever. The high-top table and chair set means no peering through the rails to get this view. I have stayed in a lot of beach condos, but I have never stayed in one with so much stuff to use. The amount of kitchen appliances, cooking utensils, spices, and dishes was better than my selection at home. And after seeing all the beach toys and chairs available for us to use, I didn't need to pack anything for my daughter. Seriously. There was more than enough dish soap, laundry soap, paper towels, toilet paper. Everything was covered. And there were plenty of bath towels and dish rags, too. The unit was super clean when we arrived and smelled fresh (no mildew smell like you sometimes get in beach units). Nothing was out of place, and everything was where you could find it. There is also an elevator, which was great for loading and unloading the car or when we were being lazy.

OWNERS: Such nice people to work with! The entire rental process was easy, with the owners answering emails quickly and providing all the information we needed to make the most of our stay. Plus, their rental contract didn't have a bunch of ridiculous rules that you sometimes see. Based on what they provided us in the unit, you can tell they have either been doing this a while or they have rented condos in the past because the entire experience was excellent.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My expectations as a mother can at times, be a little to far fetched. I always over due it when looking for places to stay that Im unfamiliar with. I searched for several weeks before narrowing our 2014 beach trip to this condo. You never really know why your dealing with and that makes me nervous. I want everything to be so perfect on our week of vacation. We worked hard for it! This condo needless to say was so lovely. The moment we walked in, it smelled so clean. As I am a very bad clean fanatic. I wasn't even afraid to cover up with the quilts that lay on the living room chairs! It came FULLY stocked with anything you could ever need in a weeks stay. I didn't have to worry about my kids safety when sleeping because we never went out the front door since it had its own elevator. We kept the lock box on and dead bolted the front door. In order to get up to our floor on the elevator, you had to have a special key or wouldn't even budge from the parking level floor. I didn't even have to lock the balcony door. The location, was great. Not in a busy location. Very laid back but within 10 minutes from all the tourist attractions in Clearwater. Our favorite place to eat was The Conch in Indian Shores. Highly recommended by far. They had the greatest customer service we've ever had. We loved it so much, we went twice during our weeks stay. We would have known if It wasn't for Jen, the condo owner. I sit and think of anything that I would put that I would be unhappy with or wish would change and nothing comes straight to mind. Just steps to the beach. I cant praise this place enough. If your worried, just like I was about if this condo is what it says, believe me.... your in luck :)

Sea Isles E has been our little piece of paradise.

  • 4 of 5

Who could ask for more? The owners provided a beautiful condo setting right on the ocean. It was wonderful to spend the week with my family for the last 2 years with these owners (who are great people)! We love the sunrises, sunsets, the ocean views, listening to the waves roll in, taking a stroll on the beach, collecting shells, taking lots of photos, making memories, visiting local attractions in Clearwater/St. Petersburg/Johns Pass/Tampa, going Putt Putt, trying local eateries, deep sea fishing on a private charter (and grilling the fish - yum), lots of beach days (thank you for the beach toys) or pool days, maybe see beach wedding, kites flying, boats, the adventure is there! So much to do or see or do nothing but enjoy the condo and beach, we have done both for the last 2 years. I can't say thank you enough. Great customer service (thus we continue to come back), very clean, great layout, good views, not the bigger condo association more crowded building, pool, beach, etc. which makes this so much more attractable! I want to say Thank you so much to the owners and I look forward to staying in touch.
