Luxury Beachfront Condo - Freshly Remodeled Kitchen & Baths

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,900 sq. ft.
Property type condo


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

One of the prime spots in Central Florida! DO NOT WAIT - this one rents fast. Closest Gulf beach to Orlando, etc!!! We have a heated pool and hot tub.

We overlook beach and pool and you will love the sunsets!

A completely renovated kitchen with Granite Counter tops, Granite Breakfast bar, brand new maple cabinets, all new High end stainless steel appliances, undercounter lighting, and ceramic tile backsplash. Refreshed painting and decorating.

New in October 2013, both Master bath and second full bath have been remodeled with beautiful granite vanity tops and all the other luxury fittings. See photos.

This spacious 1800 SF luxury condominium is tastefully decorated and beautifully maintained in one of Indian Rocks Beach's most exclusive condominium buildings - The Pier House. With only 25 units you are assured a peaceful and relaxing time at the heated pool or on the beach without having to fight the masses for a private spot to soak up the sun!

Unlike some units with puny balconies, this unit features a 28 foot wide all-glass west wall looking out over the full-width pool-side balcony to the beautiful wide beach to the Gulf and beyond.

Watch your kids frolicking on the beach, the dolphins jumping in the surf, or the sun sliding below the horizon. This building's design gives the maximum privacy on your balcony as each unit is recessed from the one next to it. Your view from the balcony also looks out over the pool and hot tub

This unit is on the first floor (above parking) center unit - the best condo in the building. This is not a high-turnover short-term rental property, and many residents live here year-round. As such this property is beautifully landscaped and maintained.

Inside, this spacious 1800 square foot two-bedroom home has all the amenities for the perfect getaway. The giant master suite has a Queen-size bed, double sinks, and a walk-in closet so big that we have used it as a third bedroom with the provided rollaway!

The bright second bedroom has two comfortable twin beds with comfort foam matress tops. There is a second full bathroom in addition to the master bath.

The kitchen, living areas, and dining room all share a wide open floorplan next to the balcony - allowing you to have maximum appreciation of the views out over the beach. Plenty of comfortable seating, game table plus dining table, pull-out sofa sleeper, and breakfast bar with stools at the kitchen make this home easy to settle in and kick back.

Due to careful zoning and the narrow barrier island that makes up Indian Rocks Beach, this wide strip of sand is NEVER crowded like its neighbors to the north (Clearwater) or south (Saint Pete Beach). That makes this the PERFECT spot to relax with your family.

There is one covered parking spot below the building. There is also a storage unit on the garage level for all the sandy stuff that goes with the beach

The Pier House is just south of the intersection of Walsingham and Gulf Boulevard with easy access to great activities and dining. Walk across the street to Crabby Bill's.

You will not want to leave!I

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself is beautiful, perfectly clean and well equipped with everything you need. Tons of living space, huge living, dining room, excellent modern kitchen, oversized master bedroom, 2 great bathrooms with awesome shower/bath spaces. The balcony is really exceptional with incredible panoramic views of the gulf. You cannot get a better view of the Gulf of Mexico! You will see pelicans, herons, dolphins and gorgeous sunsets. Very private. The pool and hot tub are always kept at the perfect temperature. The location cannot be beat. At least 5 bars/restaurants within walking distance, the best being Crabby Bills with live entertainment directly across the street, but still could never be heard above the waves off the front balcony or even the back bedrooms. There is also Lulu's, PJ's Oyster Bar, Jake's (Mexican - yummy) a pizza place and an ice cream/coffee place)

Within 5 minutes driving distance is Publix and Walmart (grocery), Bealls Outlet (excellent for clothes- Dollar General and if you would like anything other than wine, a liquor store. I must say that Crabby Bills is the best for seafood, but also, they make the best burger that I hI ave ever had!

We have been renting in Florida for over 10 years. This is easily our favourite!

Thank you, Linda , for sharing your beautiful condo with us.

Pier House 103, Indian Rocks Beach

  • 5 of 5

3rd time is the charm - Again we had a wonderful time in this unit. Linda is the most gracious owner we have had to date. Response to phone and email inquiries were almost instant. This unit is HUGE and I like the fact that there are 2 dining areas so I can have my office set up without disturbing the others.

Directly across from at least 3 great restaurants, a taco joint and a very excellent ice cream parlor. This would seem like a busy place and it is during certain times of the day, but you can still get your auto out of the garage or walk ac cross the road. Nearby are 2 cross walks with traffic lights. So this is not a problem believe me.

Also across the road is a tourist info center, bike rental and drugstore - very handy.

As Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here this past July and had a great time. The condo was clean and spacious and very well equipped. The view from the balcony was outstanding. Even when it rained we were able to sit out there and enjoy the view (which included dolphins during our stay). The pool was great and the short walk down to the beach was ideal. The other thing that was great about this condo was the location. There are some great restaurants nearby and we were able to go up and down the coast, from Clearwater to St. Petersburg, very easily. Working with the owner was a breeze. She was organized and very easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation at this wonderful location...Thank you...

This is our 4th year in this area and our 2nd year in this condo. Again we met with the cleaning crew (they were just finishing) and they could not have been more helpful or nice. One does not usually expect a family atmosphere with the condo cleaners but this couple was aces. The unit was spotless. My wife and sister kept it that way thru out our stay.

I did look round the area for another condo just in case we would not be able to secure it for next year. There is absolutely nothing to compare. I walked approx 2 miles in both directions, along the beach and back off Gulf Blvd. After looking some of these condos up on VBRO, I knew I only wanted this unit. By the way, were able to get it for next winter. Thank you Mrs. Shields.

The large patio and expanse of glass overlooking the gulf is in a class by itself. There are 2 large dining tables and I was able to set up an office and reading area without disrupting the rest of the family.

Excellent Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Four mature adults rented this condo in Jan 2014 and had a great time. We have rented other units in this area as well as Coco Beach and this has been the best and largest so far. In fact, we loved the Indian Rocks area so much, we immediately secured this same condo for Feb 2015.

The owner is from out of state but is very responsive to E-mails. I also talked directly with her over a minor issue which was immediately resolved to my satisfaction. This unit is well appointed with the only complaint being the 2nd BR is smaller than what should be normal for the price.

The condo is across from some excellent restaurants and a drugstore is 2 blocks away. A great mall is only approx 3 miles across a causway.

We arrived on New Years Day, arrived 4 hours early (my fault for not reading the lease), and the unit was not ready. One phone call and the cleaning people were there within the hour and they could not have been nicer. Lots of tips on where to go and what to do, etc.
