Why Rita Elsner chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

This area is very restful, with only 7 miles to Clearwater or 7 miles to John's pass.

What makes this condo unique

The Suncoast Beach Trolley stops right in front of our building, leave your car parked and ride all day for only $4.50 per person. A fun way to spend a day!

we couldn't have been happier! trouble/worry free!

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly owners not only want you to enjoy your stay, they want you to come back & it shows! Spotless condo - well maintained - well furnished - well stocked - well, it's just like home (only better)!

Nice pool, grill, tiki hut shelter & plenty of parking -even luggage & grocery carts. Very quiet unit steps from elevator on 5th (top) floor.

There are 3 bedrooms & 2 full baths, laundry/utility, kitchen, dining area & living room & small garage with beach toys, chairs, mats, etc. Livingroom & master bdrm sliders open to balcony overlooking wide open Gulf.

We chose this unit over others in this bldg because of it's furnishings...very flexible sleeping accomodations (1 king, 2 queens, daybed with trundle (makes into 2 twin singles) & a sofa sleeper. Also has comfy couch, loveseat & recliner & a huge dining table (seating for 8). There's even a baby crib & highchair.

Along with full size washer, dryer, range, side-by-side fridge, micro & dishwasher there's a juicer, mixer, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven, blender & 2 hair dryers! There are games, books, cable, internet access (bring your lap top) - even free long distance service. If it's not here - you won't need it!

We couldn't have been happier! Do yourself a favor - this is a trouble free/worry free vacation choice - enjoy!!

The condo was absolutely beautiful and very well stocked with everything we would need for our stay. Awesome view of the beach and ocean from the balcony! If not on the beach, the balcony is a great place to sit and watch the sunset!! My family loved the condo and Indian Shores. We did take a short trip to beach in Clearwater and was a bit disappointed, even the little ones liked the beach at condo better!! This is a great place to vacation at! We will definitely be coming back. I have to say that Rita definitely makes sure all her guests are well provided for! The only downside was the slow elevator and only 3 carts available to use, the downside to the their # of carts is when multiple people are checking in/out at the same time, otherwise great place to stay when vacationing. Thank you Rita for the awesome condo!

Very well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Rita was wonderful to work with. Seagate 505 was wonderful. It was very clean and stocked very well. I loved the storm shudders, because Tropical Storm Colin came to shore during our stay. Lots of storage space and closets. Beds were very comfortable!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a response! Glad you liked the shutters. I would not like to be without them as you can close out a storm and block out the sun in the hottest part of the day Hope you consider my condo for your next vacation. Thanks, Rita

Perfect Gulf Beachfront Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the best in the 20 or so at which I have stayed. The owners are very organized and respectful of the renters and left the bathrooms and kitchen in sparkling condition and fully stocked. My wife loves to cook and it was a delight for her. The condo is big with large bedrooms and a lovely balcony with a wide 180 degree view south, west and north. Lots of games books and puzzles and the kids loved having a tv in their respective bedrooms (aged 22 and 24-Really!). Full selection of cable channels was appreciated too. Easy parking. Pool in full sun from 10 am to sunset is a plus and water was clean each day. Beach was lovely and the only complaints we had were: a) Elevator was so slow; and b) The lawn chairs on the pool deck were in bad repair but that is not the fault of the condo owners! Great beach location near the Park Blvd. bridge and not far from Walsingham/Ulmerton! We barbecued on the beach and the bbqs were in excellent shape. All in all a great time and we want to return. Cheers to Ruth Elsner!

Owner's Response: Howard, thanks for writing a review! I am glad to hear that you and your family had a great vacation. Repair and or replacement of the beach chairs should be happening now, they were on order in early April. The elevator was rebuilt last year but I agree with you that it is still slow! Hope you make plans to stay with us again in the future. Rita Elsner
