About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Spacious, water-front condominium with breathtaking views from the balcony! Relax and enjoy the panoramic pristine view of the sugar-white private beach and the sparkling Gulf of Mexico - no public beach access anywhere nearby so the beach is yours! One of ONLY seven units in a nice, quiet complex. This “complex” consists of 2 two-story buildings on the beach side of Gulf Blvd. There are 4 units in your building and 3 in the other so it is a cozier situation than some huge condo building. Complex was built in 2000 and features a heated pool. This condo has a cute, island-style decor with crown molding, king size bed in master bedroom with its own private bathroom! The guest bedroom has a bunk bed with a single on top and a double on the bottom. The living room has an additional full-sized pull-out sofa, if you need to accommodate 2 more people. The Unit opens up to another 2 bedroom with double doors if 2 units are needed by the same group. Spend a lazy day in our crystal-clear pool or mix an ice cold drink and sit by the island-style bar or under the tiki tables as you watch a game of shuffleboard or just soak up the sun's rays. Poolside refrigerator keeps your beverages cold and close by! Indian Rocks Beach is a stereotypic beach town – very laid back and casual, everyone is in beach attire! If your vacation plans involve cooking, there is a fully equipped kitchen and room for 6 people to dine comfortably at the table, and 3 more at the counter. The condo is just a few steps from many inter-coastal restaurants including the famous and not-to-be-missed Lighthouse Donuts with best hazelnut coffee in the world (try the key lime or PBJ donuts!). Crabby Bills has a scrumptious dinner, and JD's serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The location is only 20 minutes from the Clearwater/St. Petersburg Airport and 30 minutes from Tampa. Numerous attractions nearby include Busch Gardens (30 minutes), Disney World (90 minutes), golf, aquariums, art museums, planetarium, great restaurants, water sports, rentals, and loads of beach fun!!!

Fabulous winter vacation...

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in this condo was more than we could have wished for. The condo had everything we could possibly need. We loved the expansive view of the gulf, the well kept pool and the uncrowded beach. We had never stayed on the Florida gulf coast before and felt so lucky that we found this area. Without being in an area that was too busy we luckily had access to restaurants and CVS in walking distance. We loved our meal at Aqua Priime (walking distance) and Salt Rock (2 miles away).

We hope to return next year.

great view of the gulf

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very nice, clean, and updated. The only negative was noise from above. We could hear the people on the floor above, esp. when children were there running around. We enjoyed being within walking distance of many restaurants and shops.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I excitedly booked our weekend girls getaway with Doreen. The day of our travel from VA to FL our plans unexpectedly took a crazy turn and left us unable to go. I was very upset and called Doreen, wanting to discuss if anything could be done about our booking. (Not expecting much because it was not her fault.) She went above and beyond to work with us and encouraged us tremendously through the situation. Honestly, hands down the nicest most understanding manger/business owner I have ever dealt with. Doreen we hope to soon stay at your place in FL and we will always remember your kindness!

We stayed at Sand Isle in March. Everything was perfect. The condo is amazing, the pool was wonderful and was cleaned often. Close to everything. I would recommend this place to anyone. Perfect!

What a Great week to spend with Family

  • 5 of 5

Picked this location as 3 of the 4 beachfront units were available. My wife an I decided to forgo Christmas presents in 2014 for our kids and asked if they would all join us in Florida for our Canadian Thanksgiving week. There were 15 of us in all with 7 grandchildren all under 7. What a great week we had nothing but sunshine and fantastic sunsets every night. All 3 units we rented were fully equipped with everything one could possibly need . Pool was perfect size and was cleaned 3 times during our stay. Plenty of sand toys and chairs for both around the pool and to take to the beach. Never had to drive much once we arrived as plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Not often easy to get all the family together for a dinner at home, so having a whole week to chill with all the kids and grandkids was the best Christmas present ever. Would most definitely return again soon.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sand Isle with our 2 year old son. The condo is spacious and very comfortable. The furniture has been updated from what is shown in the pictures including a king size bed in the master and a full size bunk bed in the spare. we did more cooking then eating out, so having a full kitchen and gas grill was a major plus. The restaurants we did check out were Guppys (great food!) and The Pub (food just ok but the views were amazing!). We rented a car but didn't really drive it as most everything is in walking distance. There is a lot of traffic though along Gulf Blvd. Pool is small but is a fair trade off for staying in a private, quiet complex. Best part of the stay was truly the ocean front view! We were in early most nights with a 2 year old so spent a lot of time relaxing on the balcony overlooking the sunset. Even saw some Dolphins! We will definitely return!
