great rental at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

This unit has the biggest floor plan out of all the others in the Reef Club, so the living room has a lot of space. All of the rooms are spacious and there is a great view from the balcony. The pool deck at this place is very popular, and you are steps away from the beach!

Decent condo but a little dated

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo at the Reef Club in Indian Rocks Beach. Here are the details:

Pros: on the beach with easy access, nice pool area, fairly well maintained property overall; unit had fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to make meals; very responsive owner who is ready to help if any problems arise

Cons: unit is slightly dated with older furniture and decor; property needs some upgrades like better working and better looking elevators; the layout of the building makes it a little noisy as the bedrooms border the outside hallways where you can hear people come and go

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo. Just expect a basic, well functioning condo and not anything luxurious.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the response. I am constantly updating my unit and just recently installed a beautiful king sized master bedroom set and purchased a new set of pots and pans. The elevators will be replaced this fall as the home owners have already paid a special assessment and the work is scheduled to be completed. All 22 miles of direct beach access property from Clearwater to ST. Pete is located on Gulf Blvd. For everyone's convenience there is a trolley stop next to the building and restaurants and convenience stores that are nearby. Regards, the owner, James M. Allen

Most likely wouldn't go back to this condo or area

  • 2 of 5

Pros

1) Sunny, warm Florida!

2) Location – steps from beach and close to decent restaurants and Clearwater (nice beaches)

3) Affordable

4) Plenty of space for family of 4 and could even easily accommodate another person

5) Relatively clean (smelled of bleach when we arrived, refrigerator and bathrooms clean, did find a spilled drink when moved the sofa a few inches and space between refrigerator and counter for example obviously never cleaned)

6) Grills were nice. People were using them every night.

7) Bathrooms by pool were convenient (but not very clean) so you didn’t have to go up to room to use facilities.

8) Full size washer and dryer.

Cons

1) Building is not luxury as advertised. It is old and dated.

2) Smoke detectors had been disabled

3) Bed in master (queen) was very uncomfortable and every time you moved/rolled over it squeaked extremely loudly

4) No barrier to noise from the street or outside hallway in the bedrooms

5) After the first day bleach smell faded, the condo had a perpetual musty smell. Couldn’t figure out where it was coming from as the furniture didn’t smell and there was no carpet.

6) Washed all comforters/blankets/rugs upon arrival. Stains on 2 comforters which came out when washed.

7) Door to laundry room wouldn’t latch and therefore noise carried throughout condo. My husband fixed after day 1.

8) Beach was horrible. Very “shelly” making it difficult to walk without shoes or play sports, lots of seaweed, shallow (no depth from dunes to water), sand more brown like Atlantic side, not the nice white, soft sand like at Clearwater.

9) Pool area was crowded yet not very nice. The bright blue outdoor carpet on the pool deck was hideous. The pool and hot tub, while maintained well, were old. The pool had a raised, ceramic tile lip around it that made getting in and out (or even just sitting on the side) awkward.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. Indian Rocks beach is very popular with most everyone. Clearwater beach is also crowded and surrounded by high rises. and hotels and does not have any three bedroom condos for rent. You are the first person that has reviewed the Indian Rocks beach area and complained about the shells on the beach. The beach has high and low tides and weather that alter the daily appearance. Your trip occurred during Spring Break. Everyone knows that Spring Break is the busiest time of the year. The Reef Club is a very well maintained building with great amenities. For your information less than 5% of the beach condo buildings in the area are equiped with three bedrooms. The Reef Club has amenities .like the gas grills, tennis courts heated pool, and a Jacuzzi . The building is not advertised as luxurious My unit is as noted clean also well maintained and was reviewed favorably by the family that stayed immediately prior to your arrival. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your Spring break experience and hope you can find a popular beach at that time of year that is not crowded or noisy. I have just purchased and installed a new king sized master bedroom set. The elevators are being replaced and scheduled for installation in the fall of 2016. Regards, The owner, James Allen.

great location

  • 3 of 5

The condo was spacious and clean. Lots of room. Loved having laundry. It is billed as water view which is true but the

sliding glass doors are so cloudy you can hardly see through them. Deck needs painting. Kitchen is very good.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. I agree that the patio doors have the typical condensation of older doors ( that only appears on the edges of the window panes) and I plan on changing them. I disagree that they significantly obstruct the ocean view. Also the balcony provides a nice unobstructed view from the table and I have occasionally opened the patio doors for the fresh air and the view is majestic. The owner , James M. Allen
