About Madeline

We have lived in the area for over 20 years and love it!

Madeline purchased this condo in 2000

Why Madeline chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Indian Rocks Beach is one of our favorite beaches in the area. We live 1/2 mile away. We liked and choose Hamilton House due to its location - directly on the Gulf of Mexico and size of building (only 23 units so it is never too crowded).

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been coming to this area for over twenty years. We totally enjoyed our stay at your condo. Weather was wonderful and the people were amazing as always. We would like to thank you for sharing your condo with us for yet another wonderful visit.

I would not recommend this rental unit until the owners make an effort on some updates. We have stayed in a lot of similar condos for comparison. I do NOT need brand new cabinets or granite counter tops or a newly tiled shower and DID know it hadn't been recently updated. I was not expecting it to be in this rough of shape however given the price we paid! Here's what I do need for for an enjoyable getaway-1) carpet that is not moldy. Unit had obvious water damage, water streaks down the walls from a leak above maybe? The carpet in living and dining area had been lifted with some of the pad removed, but the discoloration and musty smell remained. We were asked by Mgmt Co. mid-week if a guy could come up to measure for new between 1 and 2 pm. Didn't want to take all my valuables down to the beach, so OK, by 3 pm no one had arrived. Called mgmt back, wasted a whole afternoon getting this taken care of. 2) Appliances that work. We arrived to find dirty dishes and utensils in the cabinets. I figured the dishwasher was last run with no soap or something. Hand-washed everything we needed before using, annoyance exacerbated by the fact that the kitchen sink is very small and the faucet very large which meant it left you drenched... but then, each time we ran the dishwasher, same issue, wouldn't clean, left food and residue on everything. I didn't come on vaca to stay inside and clean! Thing was easily from the 80s and needed replaced, maintenance looked at it twice to no avail. Fridge also had a lot of rust on the front. Master toilet had a push-button flusher, another 80s relic? So hard to push the button that I couldn't do it! Needed husband to come flush for me. Fun. 3) Blinds that don't fall apart. My husband spent time everyday re-hanging the panels to the vertical blinds on both sliding doors. Any movement of them at all caused many of the hanging slats to fall to the floor. Annoying.

Overall, we liked Indian Rocks Beach very much and really wanted to try out this exact area. My parent's neighbor has a house nearby where they stayed when coming down with us for Spring Break. Great walk-ability, restaurants, not too crowded even at a "peak" season/times.

Management was sincerely apologetic about our issues. Most other parts of the unit were clean even if out-dated. The unit could be pretty great with minimal investment. It's in the best part of the complex with great ocean views. Obvious the owners never stay there themselves.

Owner's Response: We are so very sorry to hear about the issues you experienced during your stay at our condo which I would like to address. There was a hot water tank leak in the condo above us and as a result caused the carpet padding to get soaked. The padding was removed however our management company was unable to replace prior to new renters arriving. Still there is no excuse and the padding has since been replaced. We are having a new dishwasher and refrigerator installed today 4/22/16 while the unit is empty of renters. I have brought to our management company's attention the dirty dishes you found in the cabinet. We have never had this problem before, so we are sorry you had to experience that. We are confident that will not happen again. We do agree that the blinds can be a challenge and frustrating. We will be replacing the veritical blinds with curtains very soon. I understand that our management company did provide you with a discount due to the inconveniences you encounter so I hope you will accept this as an apology for your troubles. Regards, Madeline

All was great. We do like to keep the sliders open at night. The sprinkler system is set for 4-4:30 AM 3 times a week. The system has a 60 second cycle of an air compression sound that lasts for about 5-6 seconds. I know, picky, but if you could nix that sound at 4AM, that woke us up, then it was a perfect stay.

Great Condo, Great View...

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at your. It was very clean upon our arrival. This condos is in a great location with several restaurants nearby. You basically put on your beach gear, go downstairs and walk right onto the beach. The beach area there is perfect and doesnt attract the crowds. It was great to have the pool as an option as well. Sometimes the surf was a bit rough so wed go sit by the pool instead. It was nice of the owners to have things in the condo for our use such as beach umbrella, chairs, small cooler. They also have puzzles and board games. My 5 year old spent many hours on the large Disney puzzle and he loved it.

Bedrooms are big and each has its own bathroom plus a full kitchen so this place is perfect for maybe 2 families. Wireless internet access worked great and the big flat screen tv in the living room was great. The central AC worked well and was a lifesaver being there in August....very hot outside. The location of this unit is great too because you're not directly over the pool and there is really nothing blocking your view.

My favorite thing though and the reason I selected this condo was the views from the balcony. There is nothing like having that gulf view from your balcony, sitting out there every morning drinking my coffee and then again in the evening with some wine watching the sunset over the gulf. I have to remember next time to bring with me a good pair of binoculars.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a quiet stay in a great location and we hope to be visiting again in 2012.

Great Condo - Great View

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in this condo from April 17-24 with our 3 small children (5, 3 & 2). This was the perfect place for us. Plenty of room in the condo for all of us. A nice kitchen to make many of our meals. The pool is never very busy so the kids enjoyed playing in it. The beach area in front of the building is nice and quiet and not overly populated with people. Views of the sunset from the balcony were great. The overall location is also nice. Close enough to get to everything you want in a short time but also far enough away from the hustle and bustle to have a relaxing time. We have already started talking about finding dates to reserve here again next year. I would like to thank the kind owner for letting us stay here and answering all of my questions prior to booking.

Fantastic Condo ~ Definitely Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our vacation in sunny Florida. We enjoyed our stay in your condo, and look forward to our visit again next year. The description of your listing is very accurate as this condo is "well stocked". The photographs shown are exactly what the condo looks like. The condo was very clean and well-maintained, items are here than would normally not be in other condos. I would absolutely recommend this property to other people. There are many tasty restaurants near by, and we always enjoy a round of miniature golf down the road. Our favorite is getting our nightly ice cream treat from a shot across the street. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
