Why Anne Richter chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Our family has enjoyed the beautiful beaches of Indian Shores for many years. As a golfing family we appreciate the variety of courses in the area. Sand Castle I is a perfect location on and off the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Convienently located between Clearwater and St. Pete. Close to spring training camps.....Disney and Busch Gardens. Wonderful restaurants nearby....The beach trolley (free) stops right across the street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was looking for a place close to the beach, not crowded and affordable. This place qualified for everything on my list. It has a wonderful view of the beach during the day and spectacular sunsets. The apartment was clean, well equipped and comfortable. We traveled with toddlers who enjoyed the sea shells and shallow waters of the beach. The pool was nice and well kept. If you like seafood there are plenty of places near this condo, some at a walking distance. The owner is always available on-line and the customer service of the local rental company was excellent. A great place to spend your vacations!

Great Location! Beautiful Gulf Views.

  • 5 of 5

We took a chance having no knowledge of the area. Our goal was to have a little peace and quiet, yet be within close proximity to larger venues. While most of our time was spent on the beautiful white beach, it was nice having The Pub across the street for a quick bite at the end of the day. It was just the two of us so we did not cook much. The unit itself was very clean and the kitchen is fully equipped if cooking is your thing. The master bedroom bed was fantastic and may have been the best bed we've experienced in a rental. We can't think of one negative and if we return to the area we would rent this condo again. Ann was very responsive when we had questions leading into our week. We ventured to Clearwater, John's Pass and Pass-a-Grille during our stay - all were easily accessed via our rental car or with the use of Uber. If you're poking around the internet and this fits your price range go ahead and reserve it. You won't regret it. Very nice! :)

Definitely a keeper!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spotless and had everything we needed. The views of the Gulf and the sunsets were spectacular. We have been staying in this area for about 15 years and this was one of the best places.

Sand Castle I, Indian Shores, FL

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two weeks over Xmas/New Year in unit 508. All units are Gulf front with amazing views & spectacular sunsets from private, spacious balcony. Pool & hot tub both perfect temperature. Property is very clean & well maintained. Plenty of restaurants across street on Gulf Blvd. Grocery store 10 minute drive. Property built in 1970's but appears most units have been updated. Ours was very clean & well maintained with very comfortable bedding & linens with brand new walk in shower in master bedroom. Would highly recommend & definitely stay here again!

The property needs a good clean and refresh

  • 1 of 5

I'll stick with the facts. The floors were all filthy and our feet and socks were black from the moment we arrived. The kitchen worktops/counters were very dirty and covered in old food residue. There was food splashed on the fridge and wall near the trash can and the fridge was dirty inside. We complained to Anne who contacted the cleaners who mopped the floor but did a poor job as the floor remained filthy. We had to clean the work tops and fridge ourselves and wore our shoes in the property to keep our socks and feet clean.

We've stayed in lots of vacation properties and this was the worst by far. We can't recommend this property.

Owner's Response: It would be extremely unfortunate to be a renter of Gulf property only to have your vacation experience literally dampened due to the effects of Hurricane Hermine. Nothing seems quite right after that point. Our guests have consistently rated this unit 5 stars over a period of 4 years. We have annual repeat renters thanks, in part to our reliable cleaning crew.

Car: necessary

Indian Shores is conveniently located between Clearwater Beach and St. Petersburg Beach. 40 minutes from Tampa airport and 90 minutes from Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios. A 45 minute drive to Busch Gardens. The condo is close to boat, jet ski, bike and moped rentals. Wonderful golf and fishing in the area as well as shopping and fabulous restaurants!
