About the property


Sea Gate is a very popular condominium in the Indian Shores area. This fourth-floor, corner unit with wraparound balcony is beautifully decorated and filled with everything needed to make your stay with us feel like your 'home-away-from-home.'

Enjoy evening sunsets from the large balcony that extends from the master bedroom and the living room and looks directly out to the beach. There is a 2nd balcony looking onto the Intracoastal Waterway from the 3rd bedroom. Sea Gate boasts one of the largest outdoor heated pools in the area and the pool lies beachside, along with cabana tiki huts and barbecue grills for you to enjoy picnics.

Whether you are walking the beach, collecting sea shells, or just soaking up some sun on the sand, I hope that your vacation here will be a treasured memory.

My Sea Gate condos are 3BR/2BA, direct gulf front, each decorated to showcase their own unique charm and offers fully-equipped kitchens, full sized washer and dryer, and all linens are provided. Floor plans are identical.

There is plenty of free onsite parking as well as an elevator and 2 sets of covered stairs at Sea Gate.

So remember, 'if you book it, you can come' and enjoy our SAND, SEA, SHELLS and SIZZLING SUNSETS, at the 'Sea of Dreams' on Indian Shores Beach.

About Tina Gurskey

As a Florida native and after traveling all over the US...I've found it's difficult to beat our Indian Shores Beach sunsets!

I'm Tina, I am the owner of "Tina's Beach Rentals" and I have been managing vacation condo rentals along beautiful Indian Shores Beach over the past 15 + years.

Please contact me personally if I can answer any questions you may have.




Tina Gurskey purchased this condo in 1982

Why Tina Gurskey chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

My Family and I have lived on Indian Shores Beach for many years. The town has grown dramatically since the 80's...and fortunately, has been able to hold onto it's small town quaintness that draws visitors back year after year.

What makes this condo unique

With everyone being so busy these days, it's often difficult to get everyone together at the same time...but I think it's so important to make time for famiy gatherings...this is something we have always done since I was a child...and the memories I have are priceless...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay for 2 weeks in Sea Condo was very relaxing. First, the keyless entry was the best to the room and the coded bathroom. We were fortunate enough to not have to use keys to access the beach as locks were removed from gate. Bedrooms were comfortable with tv's in 2 of the bedrooms(a downfall by not having a tv in the 3rd bedroom) Living area was nice, although we were wishing for an additional piece of living room furniture, ie a recliner/chair. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes. Manager of condo (Tina) was AWESOME!! She took care of a few needs that arose at the beginning of our stay in a very quick manner. Views/sunsets/full moon from balcony were beautiful. Parking was nice in the garage area and well lit. Entry to Condo parking lot not very well lit at night, difficult to see and only one way in/out. This is not owner's fault by any means. This was out 14th year visiting the area and new to staying in Sea Gate. Pool was large and heated with plenty of seating. We did feel pool could have been cleaner due to the high use during the 2 weeks we were there(lots of suntan lotion floating on edges of pool-scrubbing each day with brush would have helped). One negative about Sea Gate was no one was ever in the office to report concerns-several times people who were not renters appeared at the pool and stayed, others attempted to use bathrooms(thank goodness for codes because most of us around the pool knew they did not belong and we would not release code). Several great restaurants/breakfast places around that we frequent whenever we are there: Sweet Sage(breakfast/lunch-outside dining) Friendly Tavern(breakfast, lunch and dinner-outside dining), Original Pizza(lunch deals at $5.00, dinner, outside dining). Trolley is right out in front of the Sea Gate Condo. When making reservations for our stay, owner answered every and all questions we asked. Washer/dryer in the unit as well. Beach was beautiful and clean. Families out crabbing at night-tons of laughter heard. Great people staying at Sea Gate Condo's. Made some lasting friendships.

We loved the view. Had plenty of room. Nice layout.

Needs some new cookware, but other than that we had everything we needed in kitchen.

We had a problem with shower. They came right away. We thank you for that. Had stuff for the beach which was nice.(play toys-umbrella-chairs). We really had a wonderful stay.

Everything you need and wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo has everything you need for a beach vacation. We have been visiting Indian Shores for years, but this was our first time at the Sea Gate and renting from Tina. When we got there, the place was clean and ready for our visit. Kitchen was fully stocked, bathrooms had plenty of towels, beds were comfortable, and you cannot beat the view from the wrap around balcony. There were plenty of beach toys and noodles that were left in the closets that we took advantage of. Some things to be aware of about the Sea Gate, there are no lights at the pool, so it closes at dusk, I found this to be a benefit since the condo is above the pool you don't have to worry about late night partiers. There is also a public beach access right next to the resort, so the beach is a little more crowded than some other resorts. But there is plenty of beach space to go around, so not an issue at all just stating for awareness.

Working with Tina was a great experience. She answered all my questions and got back in a very timely manner, even for little things that were after hours.

Expected more

  • 3 of 5

Condo is nice except really really tight on parking. Supposed to have 2 spots per unit and it was supposed to be checked by security but I left my paper off my dash 2 different nights and I didn't get towed. That tells me they don't check it. Pool and beach access was good. Beach is sorta trashy like they don't pick up trash very often. Unit is really outdated. It was like they started to update the master bath and stopped there. Furniture looks like it has been there for 30 years or more. No place to check in when you get there, you just go up to your condo. The keyless entry was nice not having keys but anyone could figure out what the code was and there is no way to change it. Only about 2 bowls in the unit so you plan on eating cereal or anything you need to get bowls. Owner was nice to deal with. We had a leak out of the fire extinguisher while we were there and she was really print on taking care of contacting someone about it.

Owner's Response: The review you submitted is not representative of the feedback I hear personally from guests who return frequently year after year to Sea Gate. Sea Gate boasts one of the largest parking lots on the beach. There must have been an extenuating circumstance that made parking unusually difficult for you. Once you informed me of this, I advised you to park behind the building...these are spots that are not noticed as quickly as the spots in the front, to which you responded you did find them...I asked you to let me know if this turned out to be a continuing problem for you and I would contact the President of the Condo Association, whom lives there on the property year round...I did not hear back from you regarding this matter. As for bowls, I was unaware there were not ample bowls in the unit...I would have brought you 8 new bowls...We stay on top of every situation, as demonstrated by your kind remarks regarding seeing to the fire sprinkler drip that had come from the unit above. We shop almost daily for the condos, so it would not have been a problem at all to supply anything that was lacking to ensure your vacation was pleasant. I also explained to you while you were here, the key codes are changed periodically, there is a deadbolt on the inside of the unit, that can be used while on the inside...crime is virtually non existent on the beaches...I have been renting condos for over 20 years without incidence. I also beg to differ, our beach is very is the same beach that stretches all the way from St. Pete to Clearwater, most people enjoy the West coast of Florida...The furniture is Tommy Bahama furniture, which is very expensive and offers a beach feel.

Good property for last minute deal price, but damage deposit not returned!

  • 2 of 5

The condo is large, view is great, it's on the beach. The last minute deal was nice, so we were okay with outdated areas in the condo, including the dishwasher that wasn't working and full of dirty dishes. (We were offered maintenance which I refused, because I didn't want people disrupting my vacation putting in new dishwasher... and I was trying to be understanding too). Well, apparently, we didn't get out damage deposit back because mattresses had urine stains. The owner even wrote that all mattresses had clean mattress pads and sheets before guests arrival... so then how do the mattresses got stain on them? Were they so old that they leaked? I have kids and sometimes diapers leek, but that wouldn't cause "horrible urine stains" on the mattress, maybe on the pad yes, but that's why it's there. Our stains were so bad they "would require steam cleaning at the very least if not remedied then replaced". These comments left very unpleasant feelings about this whole vacation. Next time we are going to a hotel.

Owner's Response: It is disheartening to believe that a guest would endeavor to blemish the excellent reputation I have spent over 20 years establishing in my community, in lieu of being accountable. With due respect, I believe holding back your security deposit, was completely warranted, in this instance. Pictures were taken in order to support this claim. This complication cast a considerable and completely unexpected hardship onto the owner. The dishwasher in question, which is less than a year old and still under warranty, did not need any maintenance at all upon your departure. Dishwasher is in perfect working order. You must not have pushed the correct button, in order to turn it on. It is apparent, there is a communication issue at hand, however, I can assure you my ultimate goal is, and always has been, to ensure that all of my guests have an enjoyable stay.
