Lovely 3 bedroom 2 bath condo located on the white sandy beaches of Indian Shores. This unit is not typical of many Florida condos, it has been recently updated, newer kitchen, all counters surfaces are granite, modern and bright decor throughout, comfortable couch/beds etc. This area has fabulous restaurants close by and our condo enjoys views of both the gulf of Mexico and the intercoastal waterway. 35-40 minutes to Tampa and St. Pete's airports. Orlando theme parks 90 minutes away.
Master Bedroom has a comfortable King size bed with views of the beach and gulf of Mexico. Large walk-in closet, new, clean master bathroom. Office desk perfect for a laptop (free internet) with plenty of drawers for clothing. Second bedroom is modern and every single thing is new (2013) including: a 9 drawer dresser, Flat screen TV, high quality pillow top medium support Queen beds with nice bedding, and a 3 speed fan, very large mirror, 6 wall hooks for towels etc. This room is luxurious! The third bedroom is cozy and also freshly redecorated with pillow top firmer support twin beds, new furniture, and is bright and cozy. Both bedrooms have new 2 inch wood blinds and also drapes to maximize darkness and lower sound from windows. Pull out couch in the living room.
Wet bar area for making fancy frozen drinks and new washer and dryer inside the unit.
Living room offers a comfortable couch which also pulls out to a sofa and comfy love seat and chair plus flat screen TV with DVD player. Fully equipped kitchen is clean and table is large enough to comfortably sit 8 guests. Condo is well equipped for babies (play yard for sleeping and safe playing, however must bring own crib sheet and baby blankets) two high chairs to choose from, umbrella stroller, baby gate, plastic drinking cups etc)
Unit has one covered parking spot and building also has two BBQs. Pool and hot tub are fabulous. Our outside closet is full of water floats, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, lots and lots of beach toys for the little ones! That being said, please see what's available before you go shopping as people take stuff and leave stuff all the time (sometimes we have several floating devices, other times we have none)
We have taken the time to truly make this beach front property as comfortable as possible. We are always improving and upgrading various things in this unit. You will notice the attention to detail in many of these rooms.
Overall, the property fully met our expectations. The location was superb and our time ended up being excellent. Thanks for helping make it happen. I fully expect to be back again next year.
The description of this unit lived up to its promise, and our expectations! Bright, spacious and perfectly located -everything we needed or wanted was at our fingertips: The beds were comfy, the kitchen was well stocked, the bathrooms and showers were clean, and the outside closet was full of stuff for the beach. Steps to the beach, and close to restaurants and shopping; the Sand Castle III is a well-maintained building with lovely pool and hot tub, and big balcony to enjoy breakfast in the morning or sunset views at night. We are already planning our return visit!!
The complex is well maintained and cleaned daily, including the pool area hallways and elevator. We were a little disappointed in the condo itself as we found the living room furniture to be in need of a good cleaning. The fitted sheets did not fit the beds (the mattresses are thick but the sheets are not deep-pocket) and after we wrestled them back onto the beds each day they would come off and wind around you while you were sleeping. The condo is well stocked, however there are not 4 beach chairs. There are two, one of which is broken. We purchased an umbrella for the beach and left it in the unit for future travelers. There is a good assortment of floats but most leak. There is a cooler and a good assortment of beach toys. There is a small outdated tv in the bedroom that got 3 channels and a flat screen in the living room which also got only 3 channels. There was no tv in the third bedroom. There is a good amount of closet and drawer space in all 3 bedrooms. The patio furniture is nice, however there is not a lounger, only 4 chairs and a table and another small round table that would serve as a side table. The kitchen was very well equipped, however the ice maker does not dispense ice. Overall the condo was nice, however we did not feel it is likely "one of the nicest in Indian Shores." The location is great for families, only a short drive to Clearwater or to John's Pass.
The rental unit at Sand Castle III was all that we hoped for. The condo was well equipped, the furnishings were comfortable and lovely. The complex was clean, tidy, and everything was in great working order. The baby items, toys, beach chairs, and umbrella were so appreciated. The pool area and outdoor hallways were cleaned daily. The beach was family friendly, safe and quiet. The property management staff was helpful and pleasant. We hope to rent again next year.
What a fantastic week we just had in this unit! Everything was exactly as described and the photos listed are a very accurate depiction of what you actually get.
This condo is located perfectly! It's within walking distance of Indian Rocks where we went for donuts a couple of times and enjoyed perusing the local surf shop. It's also within a short driving distance to John's Pass, St. Pete Beach and Clearwater Beach which helped entertain our teenagers. The Pub restaurant is located directly across the street and was delicious both nights that we ate there. This property was small enough that the beach wasn't overly crowded so we were able to enjoy spreading out to throw the football and frisbee without fear of hitting anyone. The beach volleyball net right outside the pool area provided lots of entertainment, too!
We won't be in need of a 3 bedroom unit when we return to the area next year but I would gladly recommend this place to anyone looking!
If your looking to relax with the sound of the ocean outside your balcony, then u will love this place. Large rooms very comfortable beds full amenities, everything u or kids need for a day on the beach. Not a large complex so it's never too busy at the pool or hot tub which are perfectly heated and maintained. Kids range from 20,18,13,2 all enjoyed their stay..I'm not one to stay in the same place twice but next time I'm heading to the gulf I would definitely stay here again.
90 minutes to Disney World, 30 min to Bush Gardens.
