Guestbook comments from the owner

So many of our guests write comments in our Guest Book which we always appreciate reading. Some of the comments on their vacation experience are shared here.


January: “Thanks for our stay at your condo. Had some wonderful pool and beach days. This is such a wonderful location. We enjoyed watching the water and wildlife, very relaxing and a beautiful view. The condo is very roomy and has a good layout. We will definitely think about coming again

Apr: “Thank you so much. We had a terrific week and took in all the places suggested. We loved the views inside and out. The beach was terrific. You have a wonderful place here and would love to come back.”

Apr: “Loved staying at your condo. The view is fabulous – both from inside and outside on the balcony. Enjoyed our walks on the beach just across the road from the condo. Had a wonderful time and will return. The condo is spacious, peaceful and has everything a person would want.”

May: “We had a great time staying in your comdo. Lots of room to spread out and our girls loved having double beds to themselves. We fished from the pier and caught snapper, perch and fished the surf on the beach. Hate to leave but hope we will come back.”

July “We were here for a baseball tournament and enjoyed the pool after games in the hot sun. Caught quite a few fish from the dock, none were big but it was fun. Enjoyed seeing the different birds. Didn't see dolphins but lucky enough to see a manatee. Had a great time hopefully we can make it back in future.”

Aug: “Thank you so much! Our son and nephew had a blast fishing off the dock. We saw dolphins but no manatee this trip. Had lots of great meals grilled here at the condo and at the restaurants around. An absolutely amazing trip! Will definitely be back and hoping to rent your place again.

Sept. “Back for the 3rd time. We never tire of this lovely place. Long journey from UK but well worth it. Saw 2 manatees on our first day which made the holiday and dolphins nearly every day! Ate out mostly at the restaurant closeby so easy to walk to. We made good use of the inflatable floats and hope they're still here next time. Indian Shores is our favourite place and the best beach we've ever been on. Hope someday we can stay for a month, 3 weeks isn't long enough!

Gorgeous views!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo and we'll definitely be back many times without hesitation! We love the charm of this condo, and the owners, Ed and Sharon, are so nice and helpful! The best part about it is the amazing view of the bay! We saw dolphins, crabs, swordfish, and many kinds of just can't get any better than that!

Quaint Little Spot

  • 5 of 5

We really did enjoy our time at the condo. Ed and Sharron were very easy to deal with in renting and any questions we had leading up to our stay. The condo is located in a quiet place in Indian Shores, but is with in walking distance of places to eat and shops. There was plenty of information for where to go in the area. Feed back on some of the other reviews. The sliding glass door seal is broken but we had the door open a lot and sat on the deck for meals and drinks almost the entire time we were there so it didn't bother us. The neighbors in the complex are very friendly and the beach area right outside is fun to walk on in the morning. (I wouldn't swim there ;) The dock was great in the evening to have dinner on, and there was a lot of bird watching available. It was fun to watch the boats come through the water. The walk to the beach is short and the beach was basically private. We walked over for a few sunsets and swam there often. The covered parking was great. The condo itself has some fixing up to do, but we were on vacation so it really didn't bother us. The only suggestions I would have would be to have better beach chairs and umbrella. Also a better cooler for guests to use at the beach and better beach towels. Other than that we loved staying there and gave the listing to family members that vacation in Florida. Even if they didn't take our suggestions I would have no hesitation in renting it again. Great condo!

Best Bang for your buck in Indian Shores

  • 4 of 5

03/17/2018 to 03/16/2018

The condo was bright clean and spacious, had everything we needed with great views of the waterway which we really enjoyed. The location was perfect with a choice between enjoying the waterfront area, fishing dock and pool along with the beach just right across the road only minutes away. There lots of shops, restaurants and things to do in the area and also just being able to walk to the popular Pub waterfront restaurant and not have to drive was an added bonus. We definitely want to return again for another vacation.

Rooms a a view!!!! Oh what a view :)

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my kids and sis-in law:) Great space soooo close to the beach. Loved my morning coffees overlooking the intercoastal while my kids slept in. Afternoons at the Beach or the private pool were fantastic. The restaurants, the location just perfect. Had a blast...was great to be able to cook our own meals and do our own laundry on the quiet evenings. All major shopping is close and so convenient with many choices. We would absolutely book another stay. Thanks so much it was great to get away. N M and A
