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!

Wonderful Time in Indiana Shores

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation/reunion in Indiana Shores. To start..the condo we stayed at was Fabulous! We loved the openness, décor and access to beach and fishing. There was plenty of room for all of us (including 2 big teen boys) and all the extras we didn't need to pack. The private fishing pier was great, even saw dolphins. The extra parking was most helpful for my aging mother to come see us and not worry where to park. The area is Beautiful and was perfect for a relaxing vacation. We hope to visit again!

Beautiful condo w/beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Indian Sands. The property was exactly as advertised, and the distance from beach as was stated at approximately 3 minute walk. Property had every amenity that was needed, and we so appreciated the beach chairs/umbrellas/water boards, etc. We were able to enjoy watching dolphins swim past several times as they were feeding. Property is located in a place that made it easy to get to area attractions. Sharon and Ed were very easy to work with during booking process...We would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you!!

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

The view was truly great. We preferred it to a beach view and the beach was right across the street anyway. We saw dolphins, jumping mullet, herons, kingfishers and more. The condo was clean and beautiful. Ed and Sharon were helpful at every turn.

Wonderful vacation to Indian Rocks

  • 4 of 5

First of all, let me say I found that working with the owner Sharon, was a pleasant experience and she was very accommodating. We were delayed by a hurricane and had to reschedule. Sharon has a notebook under the bar that has everything about the area in it. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon. The condo was very clean and hospitable. We went to a Publix grocery before coming in and were able to cook most of our meals in. The astounding thing about the condo is the whole far end is a picture of the water and the closeness of the beach right across the road. They were supplies for the beach included. The condo is nice but it is an older condo, however for the price is was acceptable. I would suggest ceiling fans in bedrooms for those of us who fly in but are used to a fan in the room (even a little cheap box fan for each room). Also, the mattresses could have been a little better. They were just okay. I found out that the couch was preferable for sleeping because I had the view of the bay right there. I would recommend this condo. You can fish off the dock right below the condo and clean your fish on the patio downstairs. I would rent this condo again. If you visit try Haze for the ice cream and Crabby Bills for the seafood and atmosphere. Both Indian Rocks and Indian Shores are adorable.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here in our first visit to Indian Shores, which was used as a holiday and planning trip for our wedding next year.

The apartment offers superb views of the intercostal and the opportunity to watch the boats and wildlife from the balcony or by walking out on to the jetty.

All the required amenities are in place and Sharon and Ed were great hosts in answering any questions.

The shared pool is small and there was a bit of building noise from the neighbouring block when we were there. However, there were options to go to the nearby beach or on to the jetty when preferred.

Located close by is the Pub, which offers good food and outside dining, whilst there's a few other restaurants located about a mile away.

We loved it and would return next year if it wasn't already booked!

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to the UK after almost a month in this comfortable home from home apartment in lovely Indian Shores. We had beautiful views over the waterway from the private balcony and the sitting room, and watched the boats and sometimes the dolphins passing by. On our last day we saw a manatee. The apartment was very well equipped and clear instructions were given for all the appliances, together with lots of information about the area, restaurants, attractions, etc. There were beach chairs and umbrellas and fishing rods provided which we made regular use of. We caught fish off the dock over the waterway and we had sunset picnics on the beach which was 2 minutes walk away across Gulf Boulevard at the front of the property. We also made good use of the pool, which we often had to ourselves. Sharon was so helpful, both with the booking process and after we arrived making sure we had everything we needed and even offering for us to stay an extra night if our plane was delayed due to Hurricane Matthew. We had fabulous weather and went on fishing trips and other boat trips and we visited new restaurants and old faithful haunts from previous visits to the area. All in all we had a brilliant time and wish to say thank you again to Sharon and Ed for use of their lovely home. We will be back!!
