Beautiful sandy beach just steps from the pool. Heated pool and hot tub with cabana/bathrooms and 2 gas grills. Under building parking and easy access to elevator.

This is an ideal place for families or anyone desiring an easy going vacation. If you become bored with soaking in the sun, walking on the beach or swimming, take a short

Since we purchased the property Jan 2013, we have updated the balcony furniture, living room furniture and bought new washer and dryer. We will be having new flooring laidOctober 2015.

We have been renting condo's in Florida yearly since 1998 and were impressed with how clean the unit is and how welcoming it is for renter's. We hope to carry on this tradition. We take extra effort to make this a place that we would want to rent.

Unit is owned and managed by Alex Jermel, LLC

About Deborah and Chuck Rasmussen

We live in a small town in central Minnesota and hope to retire to the gulf coast some day. We love the area and have spent some time every winter on the gulf since our children were young. They are all now adults and we now have grandchildren which we enjoy taking to Florida.

Deborah and Chuck Rasmussen purchased this condo in 2013

Great Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our two-week stay at this condo. We absolutely LOVED the condo and complex. The beach was also GREAT as it was not very busy at all. The condo had everything you would need, and then some. It was nice to have the laundry and dish detergent, trash bags, etc. provided during the stay. The condo also has plenty of bath and beach towels, as well as beach chairs and toys for your use. I would highly recommend this unit.

The perfect place to be

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with 3 kids looking for a nice condo with a pool close to the beach. Sandy Castle welcomed us with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms highly equipped, that there was hardly anything we could not think about, even beach towels and sand toys. as soon as we have arrived at the condo on the 5th floor holiday started at that very moment. The colors on the walls, the decoration, every room reflects beach feeling in Florida style.

The view from the balcony is breathtaking- full ocean view 24 hours a day. If you are inside the condo, you can always listen to the ocean.

You have very nice restaurants in walking distance, like TJ Italian Bar or Guppy's or just a few minutes by car, there is Lulu's, PJ Oyster or Crabby Bill.

If you look for a perfect holiday with your family at the ocean, this is the perfect place to be, we highly recommend.

Absolutely loved this condo

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo and the complex were great. The condo was very well stocked. There were plenty of both bath towels & beach towels. The kitchen had all the dishes you needed to cook at the condo. There were two gas grills by the pool that were great for cooking out. The beds were all comfortable and there was plenty of seating both in the front room and on the balcony. There were plenty of beach chairs and rafts for the pool as well as kids toys if needed. The disposables of garbage bags, dishwasher detergent, liquid soap, and laundry detergent were plentiful and it was great not having to run out to get it. Would definitely stay here again especially if need a 3 bedroom condo. Even if I don't need 3 bedrooms would consider staying here just because it's so nice. The pool & hot tub were great as well. The condo was very clean and we want to thank Deborah & Chuck for sharing their home with others. We look forward to returning hopefully soon.

Great restaurants nearby are Guppys, Crabby Bills, PJ's, Kooky Coconuts for ice cream, and Pinkys for ice cream. Also Toucans in Clearwater Beach.

Rented kayak right across the street and walked it over to the beach.

John's Pass has a lot of little shops and a couple little restaurants for a nice way to spend a few hours. Took trolley to here and it was easy.

Played miniature golf at Smugglers Cove. It can be very pricey if you have several children with you. About $13 a person.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent family vacation condo! So accommodating, they have thought of everything you would need for a beach vacation. I have stayed in several other condos in the area and this location was the best. Owners are a pleasure to rent from and always available to answer any questions.

The perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family had an absolute fantastic stay here in Indian Rocks Beach. This apartment is amazing. Everything is just as nice as the pictures show. The view from the balcony is really nice looking out over the gulf of Mexico. We saw dolphins every day. The owners were very serviceminded and really made sure that everything was to our satisfaction. Thank you so much Mr and Mrs Rasmussen for letting us stay at your beautiful place. We really hope to come back in the near future.

Regards,

Jani Lemmetti with family from Gothenburg Sweden.
