Thanks for viewing our listing. We are a Tampa family with kids between the ages of 9 & 21. We decided that we could use a 'decompression' chamber from our busy work & school lives & looked for a beach home. We ALL had a part in choosing & preparing this amazing condo to suit our needs. We think you'll love it as much as we do...& will want to come back again!
Nina & Family
Nina purchased this condo in 2012
When we were looking for a beach home, we viewed properties as far away as 100 miles from our Tampa home. Initially we thought we only wanted to be directly on the Gulf beach, but then we saw Captain's Cove! It's truly the best of all water getaways. And Indian Shores is a beautiful, quaint town with some awesome dining experiences just blocks away. The kids in our family absolutely love this setting & condo! It's private, quiet, yet minutes from revved up activities (although we go mainly to relax & enjoy each other). We hope to share our beautiful getaway with a select few vacationers each year. Let us know if you're interested!
We just can't get enough of sitting on the beautiful balcony, overlooking the water & wildlife. The long walks on the beach, beautiful sunsets, watching the dolphin and manatee from our dock, eating fresh grouper sandwiches in the local outdoor restaurants...we love it all! We've upgraded this spacious condo & added the latest electronics & wi-fi and brand new laundry and kitchen appliances...guaranteed to WOW the socks off of you.
This was by far the nicest condo my wife and I have ever stayed in. It didn't feel like "just another rental property" at all! it felt like a home that we got to live in for 2 weeks. Everything was clean, in great shape with all new appliances and tons of extras that usually can't be found in a vacation rental. The owner went out of her way to meet with us and show us around the condo and property, she answered all of our questions and helped us get settled in which shows how much pride she takes in not only her condo but also with ensuring her guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. My wife and I will absolutely be coming back to Nina's Captain's Cove "home" for many more years to come. Thank you Nina and family for an amazing vacation! P&L 2016
Right from the time we walked into the Condo it was the perfect vacation. Nina was amazing. Went over everything with us and even checked in half way through our vacation to see if we needed anything and if everything was going ok. We spent the evenings walking on the beach and sitting on the spacious balcony. The pool was wonderful and we meet really nice people as well. The furniture was tropical. We want to thank Nina for allowing us to spend our vacation in her beautiful Indian Shores residence
We stayed the month of Jan. 2016 at Captain's Cove in the unique village of Indian Shores. The condo is terrific with up to date furnishings and easy to keep clean tile flooring. We were welcomed to the condo by it's owner and given a brief introduction to the many amenities of the condo and the area.
We especially enjoyed the walks on the beach which is just across the blvd. and the ever changing scene out side the deck windows along the intracoastal with boats, dolphins, birds, paddle boarders, etc.
We also took a fascinating trip to the Narrows nature park just across the Walsingham bridge with its rescued birds of prey, turtles nature trails and its unique greeter a little screech owl.

Perfect escape from freezing cold Canadian winter. We arrive at Captains Cove Christmas Eve and were met by Nina, who took us upstairs to her home. We had seen the pictures online and knew it would be nice but were still happily surprised. Wow! The unit was just pristine. Everything was beautifully laid out and all our needs had been anticipated. The view from the balcony (a really big balcony, it should be noted) was outstanding. We spend many an hour gazing over the water from that balcony. We cannot thank you enough for the opportunity of letting us stay in your home and hope to return one day.
We stayed a this condo for 2 and a half months. It was the best condo we have ever rented. It was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities we could ever want. All you had to do was bring food and move in. It had all the cleaning supplies, washing supplies and cooking and storage items you need. The view is fantastic and we saw dolphins all the time. The owner is a gem and great to deal with. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
From the first moment driving over the bridge into Indian Shores, I knew, without a doubt, that we made the right decision to stay here. Nina awaited our arrival at the condominium with a huge smile on her face and a welcoming atmosphere once escorted upstairs. She made this weary, traveling family of four feel right at home upon immediate arrival. Nina made her home our home....The pictures on the website really does not do the place justice, as the view of the waterway is unparalleled, the kitchen spacious and well-stocked, and the tiled bathrooms roomy (with superb water pressure). The beds were comfy and the televisions were magnificient!!! We used this condo as a home base to explore the many riches and splendors of the Gulf Coast. Thank you so much Nina and family for allowing us to make wonderful family memories.
Walk to GREAT restaurants, adventure golf, charter fishing & all water sports. View dolphins, manatees & exotic waterbirds from your porch; shell along miles of pristine beach.
