About The Owner

We are a British couple. We met through music - my wife is an opera singer and I am a pianist. We love to dine out in the excellent restaurants which are close by the condo building. The shopping is great too. Some people are very active and enjoy things like golf and fishing. But truth to telll we just like to relax around the pool escaping from our busy lives.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Indian Shores

We travelled all round the USA many years ago and when we got to Florida we fell in love with it and decided to buy a holiday home. We visit every year once or twice to enjoy the condo and make sure everything is up to date and as nice as possible for our visitors.

Beautiful and comfortable living areas and view, lots of fun things to do close by. Family friendly.

  • 4 of 5

Really comfortable and well kept place to stay. Gorgeous view and ample seating area for family meals both inside and on the balcony. We neverbhaf am issue woth anyone being too loud or being disturbed at night. Our frezer went out amd the maintenance guy was there in about 30 minutes and hadbua back up and running in no time. We would have appreciated more linens and basics like toilet paper, dish soap and garbage bags as we had to stock the place ourselves the first day we arrived. Outside if that, we couldn't have asked a better experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. You should have been provided with toilet paper, linen and soap (and dishwasher tablets) when you arrived and we don't know why this doesn't seem to have happened. We have made arrangements to supply these essentials for when out guests arrive. We're going to check up on this. Thanks again for your comments. Jenny and Neil Cloake

Great condo on the beach! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as described ... clean, great location, easy check in and out. The size of the condo was perfect for my husband and 4 teenage boys. The view from the wrap around balcony had such a beautiful view of the beach. We can't wait to go back!

Great time of year!

  • 5 of 5

We came down for a family wedding in Tampa area. We like to stay in the Beach area every year. October turned out to be the very best weather ever. Warm during the day, cool at night, and we only had one rain day! The condo is very nice, large enough for our group with three bedrooms. The owners let us do a Tues-Tues stay, which made the process of finding a condo hard in the first place, most wanting Sat-Sat. (wedding was on Sat!!) . We were situated on the 5th floor and the view was gorgeous. The pool area was kept very nice. My only warning is that you need to stock EVERYTHING yourself except towels, dishes and bedding. There is no backstock of any paper necessities left behind by previous guests. We just went out and bought enough to get thru the week and took the rest home. The condo was pretty clean and comfortable. I wish we had been around more to use the huge kitchen but we had too much travelling to do. Indian Shores is centrally located to everything on the beach. Tons of places to go. We typically headed south every day. And the trolley stop is directly in front of condo. The Pub restaurant and bar is right across the street. Great food, cocktails and friendly staff that we got to know very well! I would go back again.

We truly enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave! The condo was perfect the only thing is the bedroom with the queen bed the air condition doesn't work so great in that room. So you should look at this. Other than that we could not have asked for a more perfect place! Thank you! Hope to come back next year.

Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

This unit looks exactly as the pictures do but you just can't appreciate the BEAUTIFUL kitchen, living room, master bedroom and baths until you are actually there....the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms could use a little updating such as removing the carpeting. The single bedroom had an odor like a cat had been there. HOWEVER let me say this....this condo is right on the beach and couldn't ask for a more perfect location. Owner was very accomodating as was the rental office. We did have a few maintenance issues (very minor) and they responded immediately. They did also give us the name of the condo association president to complain about the hot tub not being hot, nor was the pool. Please note this is not the condo owner's fault in any way! My only suggestion for the owner is the following: provide beach towels for the guests - when flying it's very hard to include a beach towel or one for each family member in your luggage. Also the kitchen could use a hand mixer ($10 at Wal Mart). This unit was extremely clean and was just perfect - the lani has a wrap around so you can see the intercoastal waterway as well as the sun rise and then the sunset over the Gulf. Hated to leave this paradise and hope to return. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
