New inside with gorgeous amenities and appointments throughout make this luxurious 3 bedroom and 2 full bathroom condo the focal point for your next great vacation. Sleeps eight, and from its top floor penthouse location, you can actually view the sunset from the kitchen, dining room, living room and balcony. You can also enjoy the sunset from the hot tub, tennis courts, pool and of course - the beach! Reef Club is a 5-story 55-unit condominium complex with assigned private parking, a beach-side heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor BBQ grills and a fabulous beach. Reef Club is centrally located between Clearwater Beach to the north and St. Petersburg Beach to the south. You are only 30-40 minutes from Tampa International Airport and Busch Gardens. Disney World, Universal Studios and world famous Orlando attractions are just 90 minutes away. Our penthouse beachfront condo is a great place to relax and vacation. A great location for all. Make it your place for your next great vacation!
Don't need a car - extended stay convenience: Great feature - you can take a shuttle from the Tampa Airport to Indian Rocks Beach - about $32.
Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach (Treasure Island) to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price!
Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your digital security code.
AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long.
Again, shuttle to the airport and great trolley on the beach . . . and Gulf Boulevard is great to walk and cruise.
Rentals and packed sand: There are many rentals within 5 miles: skiing, para-sailing, jet-ski - check out the owner's webpage a few lines below for even more information, phone numbers and links . . . . also . . .
The Indian Rocks visitation center is located at the corner of Walsingham and Gulf Boulevard - 4 blocks away - and you can get coupons, flyers and the best price on tickets to events (including Busch Gardens) and just a great place to find out what is 'happening' while you are there.
The packed sand is great for jogging, bike riding or just walking on the beach.
Watch the Seabirds at eye level as they glide by your top floor Reef Club vacation penthouse.
Restaurants and places: Best ice cream in the world! Candy Kitchen - they make their own - go there. They have the same ice cream at 'Candy Kitchen' (one block north of Reef Club . . . just the portions are not as large :).
Salt Rock Grill - atmosphere! Great value - surf & turf - more . . . go before 5:00 for extraordinary prices!
Crabby Bill's - Seafood - always happening. Within very close walking distance - TJ's, Keegan's, Guppys and PJ's Oyster Bar - all good.
THE Pub - down the street. Dine at the outside bar evenings and watch the Intracoastal.
TJ's Italian Pizza, Picata and Sea Bass. Maggie Mae's Sunrise Cafe - in Sand Key for great breakfasts.
Try the bagel Tuna for lunch at Lighthouse Doughnuts - and of course the donuts and breakfasts are great! Canadians say 'We had their bagel sandwiches and they were better than the Canadian ones!'
All the above located on Gulf Boulevard.
As a family of five, Charlotte and I have vacationed in Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, South America - etc. and all great wonderful vacation locations. However our best - stress free and quality vacations have been at the Gulf Beaches of Florida. The location is always ideal for weather, activities, friends and family . . . and we don't feel like we had to out of the country to vacation - we didn't! Great location and easy to get to and so much to do. Pro sports teams in Tampa, Busch Gardens, Gulf beauty and of course we would always go to Orlando and enjoy everything Orlando has to offer - from Disney, to Sea World to the Orlando Magic. This is simply a great location and this condo is beachfront - penthouse - 30 minutes from Tampa airport . . . what more can you say. Getting here is easy for Western Hemisphere and European vacationers and you can start your vacation right away. We have enjoyed this area immensely.
Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez purchased this condo in 2010
Beachfront location top floor ocean view penthouse 30 minutes from Tampa International with Tampa/Orlando at your fingertips. Great people during our stays. We like the people we have met. Great location to fly to - great location to drive to - and great location to center your vacation from. We particularly like the Reef Club. It has a design and accommodations that welcome guests and allow for a great vacation location.
This condo has three bedrooms and is designed to sleep maximum of 8 people. In the living room there is also a very nice new leather couch with a comfortable queen sleeper sofa. Two HDTVs including 42' Panasonic Plasma in Living Room and 37' Insignia HD in Master Bedroom. High Speed wireless Internet.

There is a lot. Penthouse beachfront, sunset while watching seagulls coast by, hot tub, pool, volleyball, gas grills - bike rides on the beach. Don't laugh - but the thing that did it for me was watching the sun set from the top floor balcony while enjoying an excellent carbernet and a McDonald's double cheeseburger. (It had been a long day). TJ's is 3 minutes north and excellent. Crabby Bills a 5 minute walk away - and great places to eat. Resting with the ocean breeze . . .

The property was well maintained especially the pool which was thoroughly cleaned each morning. The condo had plenty of room and the furnishings were very nice. We wished we'd had a cheese grater, but that's a minor thing! Overall a pleasant experience.
This is probably the nicest beach property on this coast that we have rented. We rent a condo on or near Indian Rocks about four times a year. Normally one expects the usual worn "beach motif". After all, sand and kids can be hard on a unit. The furniture was fresh and of good quality. The building is not new, but well maintained as are the facilities. One of the elevators was being rebuilt which caused very little problem as the remaining elevator was fast and virtually no wait time. The pool and hot tub were much appreciated by the kids and there were plenty of lounge chairs for the adults. The building is right on a beautiful and uncrowded section of beach.
The unit was perfectly clean, well supplied and comfortable. The beds, linens and towels were much nicer than one would expect. Nice TVs and fast internet.
The unit was very nicely priced. About the same as for the run-down units that we were pretty much used to and expected.
Rick was a great host. Quick to respond.
The whole week rental could not have been better.
Condo was perfect! Very spacious and has everything you need. Highly recommend and will stay again.
Beautiful condo, spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The unit is spacious and up to date. Dealing with Rick was easy and the instructions were incredibly detailed, best we've ever seen for any rental. The photos on vrbo are accurate, pool area lovely, location was amazing and the building was well maintained. Definitely recommend this fantastic condo.
We would recommend this condo and area for families because of the beautiful beach and the close proximity to all that Tampa Bay area offers. We easily visited all the local attractions. The ease of reserving and the prompt attention from Rick to all inquiries made this an easy trip. If you are going to this area, Indian Rocks Beach is out of the hustle and bustle of the island, and it is easy to get to the Tampa Bay area. Go and enjoy!
Overall I felt that the unit itself was decent. The only issue we had with the unit was that the stove didn't seem to work correctly (it took a long time to even boil water).
The building itself is outdated a bit. The tennis court was alright, but the lines were not even correct (looks like when they repainted the lines they messed up). If you don't play tennis I guess that doesn't matter to you, but it is worth noting. Looking at the photos of the amenities before we booked we knew it looked a bit dated, but when we arrived it was much more dated than we thought. On a side note the elevators are to be redone in August, so they are working on the building.
Overall, again, I feel that the individual unit was very good for my family. We enjoyed our week and the beach was great. Rick was very communicative throughout the process, and this location is great. Hopefully the condo association keeps up with people like the Rick who are doing a lot to keep their units up to a high standard.
Reef Club is centrally located between Clearwater Beach to the north and St. Petersburg Beach to the south. You are only 30-40 minutes from Tampa International Airport and Busch Gardens. Disney World and Universal Studios are about 90 minutes away in Orlando.
