This 2 bedroom (king sized bed in the master and two twins in the guest room), 2 full bath, Beach Cottages condo sleeps six when you add in the two queen sized pull out living room couches. Professionally decorated with Tommy Bahama furniture from Havartes, this lovely condo offers covered parking, a jetted tub in the master bath, and a full sized washer and dryer in the totally equipped eat-in kitchen that boasts its own, separate balcony. You will take in views of the gulf as you sip your morning coffee. Beach Cottages' pool is heated, the hot tub delightful, and the professional poolside grills make barbequing at the beach a breeze! As the daytime fun winds down, watch the sunset from the patio and let the rainforest sounds from the famous Seabird Sanctuary next door lull you to sleep.

Property needs to be more strict with the teenagers!

  • 3 of 5

The condo was good could use new carpet but other than that we loved the view and how close it was to the beach, parking and pool. We also loved how well equipped it was. My only complaint was that there is no management for the property. The teenagers staying there were loud all hours of the day and night. Cops were called 4 nights in a row for underage drinking. They would drink all day and night and leave there beer cans all over the beach! Our car got hit in the parking lot and the windshield was also cracked like something was thrown at it. We have stayed at Beach Cottages numerous times and sadly we will never go back.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you enjoyed your other stays at Beach Cottages. By the same token, we are sad to find out through this review, of the problems you encountered during your most recent stay. Any vacation planned on the beach in Florida during college spring break can be a matter of 'rolling the dice' since popular beaches come and go (it had been Daytona, lately it has been Panama Beach). Generally, VRBO units are private homes in private buildings, rented by owners. Most of the time there is no security force on site, for that a hotel may be more in line with your needs. Most of the time, Indian Rocks Beach is a quiet, family friendly area. We are sorry that your one stay during spring break will prevent you from ever returning. Thankfully your other stays were all good.

Great Place to Be

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! It was well equipped and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony, watching the birds, and enjoying our privacy. The master bedroom did not have a closet, but there was plenty of drawer space available in the dresser and nightstands. There was a clothes rack available in the bathroom with hangers. The owner and Plumlee Realty were very accommodating, helpful, and easy with which to work. The condo was awesome for the four of us and we would definitely rent it again.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly the way it was pictured in the website. It had plenty of room for 4 people. The only thing I could say negative about it, is that the Master bedroom doesn't have a closet. The closet in the 2nd bedroom was large but had no hangers for your clothes. (we didn't think to bring hangers with us) Everything else was great. You do have to buy everything for cooking, even your spices which was a little bit of a drag. The Bird Santuary next store was quite entertaining. We loved every minute of it. The birds were fascinating. We loved watching the nesting birds out front with their little babies. Now & then you might get a smell but it certainly wasn't bad. View was gorgeous and so was the layed back beach. Just what we were looking for in a vacation. We had a wonderful time. Would rent this condo again in a second. Very, Very nice!!!

A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time renting this condo. The condo has a sw facing beach view, which we loved! It allowed us to watch the storms and had wonderful privacy from the neighbors. Some previous reviews mentioned the sea bird sanctuary. We loved it! The nesting skimmers in the beach were noiser than any bird in the sanctuary. We enjoyed watching both the sea bird sanctuary and the skimmers. This condo has VERY quiet windows and patio doors. It could not have been more quiet. Location was great for beach access, you could walk down 1 flight if stairs and be at your parking space or the beach.

The unit was very clean and the furnishings nice. Kitchen is what I expected and totally functional. We were extremely happy with this rental. We hope to rent it again next year!

Beware of bird sanctuary next door

  • 2 of 5

The condo we were in had great views of the ocean and was very nicely decorated. The pool area area was well maintained and the pool was clean and warm. Had it not been for the ODOR coming from the BIRD SACTUARY next door, we would have tried to rent the unit again next year. HOWEVER, the odor was so bad that my wife rarely sat out on the balcony or wanted the balcony door open. We also didn't use the shower off the master bedroom because the shower curtain went from floor to ceiling letting no light into the bathing area making it very dark. We also had to leave the shower curtain partially open in the second bathroom for light and observed some black mold. There was also a shortage of flatware such as having only three tea spoons and limited sharp cutting knives. The dinnerware is a mix of different patterns and sizes.

We loved the area and have rented a different condo for next year away the the bird sanctuary.

Owner's Response: As new owners, we appreciate constructive feedback and respond as needed to things we can. However, we can only respond to statements of fact. Unfortunately, on VRBO the only way to address inaccurate and unrealistic feedback is to “call it out” and challenge it in a response. One of the reasons we liked this unit was the bird sanctuary. We spent time here in April and May ’12 before buying to ensure that the sanctuary was not an issue. Since then we have spent time here in Oct ’12 and Feb ’13. The bottom line is there is a bird sanctuary next door. If you don’t like birds or are hyper-sensitive, this unit is not for you. If you are like us and most other travelers, the birds will provide entertainment and be a curiosity on the back balcony with little if any offensive smell. We inspected the unit the day this traveler left. Claims of mold are simply not true. We have the unit professionally cleaned at our expense after each use. The carpets are professionally steam cleaned every 6 months regardless of occupancy. That being said, we have addressed other issues raised that have basis in reality. These include: • Replacing all of the mismatched silverware with Pfaltzgraff (there are now two complete sets). • Adding a complete knife set and removing any knives found to be inadequate. • Adding new cutting boards. • Replacing the blender with a professional grade Cuisinart. • Replacing drinking glasses • Replacing the dishwasher (Feb ’13). • Shower lighting improved by pulling back the decorative curtain so one must actively want to use it, as opposed to in-use being the default. • Replacing the tube television in the master bedroom with a 32” flat screen smart TV. Our objective is to have a wonderful place for us to visit and allow others the experience when we are not there. We have updated the site with current photos (March ’13) as a testament to the condition of the unit.
