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.

About Eric and Jen

Hi! We live in Florida, not too far from our condo. We are originally from Minnesota, but moved here permanently in 2012. We have one daughter. We love the Florida lifestyle - spending time at the beach, boating, fishing, scuba diving, golfing - all the outdoor activities that this area offers year-round.

Eric and Jen purchased this condo in 2001

Why Eric and Jen chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We love Indian Rocks Beach! It is a quiet, family friendly area with great restaurants, several within walking distance of our condo.

What makes this condo unique

The balcony of our condo has an unobstructed view of the beach. It doesn't get much better than that.

First time renting thru VRBO great experience.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at IRB for 2 weeks and it was a wonderful condo and perfect beach front view. Jen was a pleasure to work with and everything in the unit was clean, smelled so fresh and had no issues finding anything. I think we found our sweet spot and are looking forward to returning again. Thanks Eric & Jen !!

This wonderful condo was all we wanted it to be - and more.

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a great time here during our 2 week stay. Our main purpose was to catch some Blue Jay Spring Training Baseball games. And this condo was very conveniently located for that. We loved the view from the balcony and thoroughly enjoyed our beach walks. The pool was well maintained and enjoyable on our non game days. What was a very pleasant surprise to us was how nicely stocked the unit was. No worries with dish soap, laundry detergent, paper supplies, etc. etc. On the days that we didn't want to cook and eat in, we found some great restaurant options within walking distance. We had a great stay!

Already missing the place and haven't even left yet!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! Everything was as pictured. You are so close to the beach, and the views and sounds are phenomenal! The covered patio had it's own private-access elevator that leads right to the beach and pool areas. It was so convenient. Thr pool area was very nice and the condo had just about any beach equipment/toy you could ever imagine. We will definitely stay here again!

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!
