Amazing condo, Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Florida for our family vacation for the last 5 years and have been looking for the perfect condo/beach and we have finally found it! The pictures posted for this condo are absolutely beautiful, but let me tell you the condo is even more amazing in person. It is absolutely beautiful! I have the biggest smile on my face every time I think about or talk about our stay. The closets are so big they are like 2 more bedrooms. The location is close to all of our favorite spots- St. Pete Beach, John's Pass, Madeira Beach just to name a few. It was truly like we were at home-we felt so incredibly comfortable. There were 7 in our group and we still had so much room! I want to thank the Massa's for allowing us to have an unforgettable time in their beautiful home. I would recommend this property to anyone! We can't wait to come back next year! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Indian Shores for several years. This condo was by far the best we have stayed in. Great location, clean, comfortable beds and updated. Thank you Massa family for opening your home so we could enjoy the great beach and feel like we were at home. Only negative was having to use a key to get in/out of beach gate. However, it did provide more security. Would definitely rent this condo again.

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying in this unit at Sand Dollar. I have also stayed in a two bedroom unit at Sand Dollar multiple times. We have tried other condos in the area but we enjoy Sand Dollar the most. This condo is very well equipped, the view is fabulous, and the condo will definitely NOT disappoint! I asked for a special accommodation prior to arriving and my request was happily granted. Karen, the owner of this condo, is extremely pleasant to work with. The girls in the office at Sand Dollar are all very helpful. I have vacationed to this area of Florida for many years and it keeps inviting me back over and over again!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We take our Mom away for her birthday every year and this was her 89th birthday. What a gorgeous comfortable condo with fabulous views. Karen was a joy to work with and everything was just perfect except for the weather. Mother Nature was not kind this week. My mom has already said for her 90th birthday we have to come to this condo. Comfortable beds,great kitchen and fully equipped with all that we needed to cook meals as we eat in a lot. The boys loved the pool and the hot tub. We are already planning to return next year just praying for better weather! The condo was just lovely and it was great to have the towel change in the middle of the week. Thanks Karen for allowing us to share this lovely piece of paradise. We loved all of the decor and furnishings.We are already planning next year's visit.
