About Darryl Glenn
Isabel is from Spain and we met while I lived and worked there for ten years. During our years there we enjoyed traveling throughout Europe and especially staying in the quaint Bed and Breakfasts that are so typical there. We made notes of all of the things we liked and disliked about everywhere we stayed and planned to one day have somewhere unique and cozy of our own to offer to vacationers. In 2000 work brought us to St. Petersburg, Florida. In 2004 we purchased a condo in Indian Shores, just a few miles from our home. We decorated it with nothing but the best (Isabel is an Interior Decorator and has her own business). As guests began to know us and word began to get around we soon had a steady flow of visitors and a full calendar. Just repeat visitors were nearly keeping the unit booked. In 2008 we decided to buy a second unit, with the exact same floor plan and the same extraordinary views, just a few steps away. We call them our Gulf Retreat 1 and Gulf Retreat 2.
Darryl Glenn purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Darryl Glenn chose Indian Shores
We love Indian Shores because it is the quietest, most relaxed part of Sand Key, the barrier island that runs along the Gulf shore from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater. It is the narrowest part of the Sand Key, only 150-200 yards across where we are located. That means you can enjoy both the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico only a few steps apart. Indian Shores is the last part of the coastline in Pinellas County that preserves a small-town feel. Gulf Blvd. is still just a two-lane road and the speed limit is 35 m.p.h. There's is only one traffic light in Indian Shores. There isn't as much asphalt as you see to the south or north of us, a lot fewer high-rise buildings and none of the tourist traps. While you will find all the restaurants and conveniences you need near-by Indian Shores is still primarily a residential, family-oriented community.
What makes this Condo unique
Our view is of the Intracoastal Waterway, the body of water that separates Sand Key from the mainland. We love it because of all the boat traffic - it's fun to watch. The dolphins are always a joy to see, too. They are most active early in the morning or at sunset. Manatee are a little harder to spot, but are always around, too. When the tide is low there is a sandbar that emerges from the water just off our balcony. The seabirds all come to feed there and it's wonderful entertainment. And the Intracoastal Waterway is beautiful to behold at night, when the lights from the boats and other properties reflect off the surface. You must see it to appreciate it! And of course the beach is just across the street. It takes just a couple of minutes to get there walking. It's never crowded and always relaxing. We have beach toys, inflatables, beach chairs, an umbrella, a cooler... everything you need except a good book and suntan lotion! And we even have a handy cart to put everything in and wheel it across the street!

We really enjoyed our stay in the Indian shores. The location was brilliant. The beach was very close and it wasn’t crowded. We used the pool which was close to the apartment. My children loved swimming and playing in the pool.
The apartment itself was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The views were amazing.
There were all sorts of toys available as well. And the garage was a good size. No problem parking.
Darryl communicated very well and we didn’t have any problems reaching him at all.
Overall we loved our stay and will be coming back.
Beautiful condo with great view
We’ve stayed multiple times in this unit and it never disappoints. So happy that we found this place years ago.
We know the area well since we lived in Dunedin for 28 years. This location is exceptional and better than the beach. It overlooks the mangroves and channel so there’s wonderful views and wildlife activities. They provide just about everything you will need. It makes you feel like your home since it’s so well appointed and kept and not cheap like most rental properties. You feel right at home and comfortable.
Perfect stay in Indian Shores, FLA
Our family of 5 found this little gem in Indian Rocks to be a perfect vacation retreat. It was crisp and clean, easy and pleasant to communicate with the owners, and the location was great. It was an easy walk to the quiet local beach and an easy drive to Clearwater and Siesta Key. The balcony overlooking the International Waterway made for a great spot for morning coffee and sunrise. Thank you, Glen and Isabel!
Me and my family have been coming to Indian Rocks beach since I was little, this year was the first year, we didn’t go to our usual stomping grounds. We decided to try somewhere new. That’s when we found this amazing condo. It was the best stay we had hands down. The pictures and the short walk to beach held to be true. The view from the condo was gorgeous especially during the Florida storms! And beach right across the beach was so easy and nice! And the gift basket that left was so hopeful for our first night there and when we had pasta night! We look forward to staying there again!
