Beach Vacation

  • 3 of 5

We spent a week at this condo and had a fabulous time! The condo was fully stocked with more than what one would expect. Two things to note....walls are thin and second bedroom has a queen size bed not 2 twin beds but we managed to make it work! The owner Penny was very quick to respond to any questions.

Owner's Response: I do apologize about the second bedroom, we got a new bed for that bedroom just before you got there and was not able to update any pictures before hand. I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Hope you still enjoyed your stay! Thank you! Penny

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Beachside Villas and we had a wonderful vacation! Penny was a pleasure to work with (and even helped me out with a last minute problem) and responded to any questions right away. This is one of the cleanest and most comfortable condos we have stayed in and we will definitely stay here again. The condo is so close to everything - the heated pool, the picturesque beach, St. John's Pass, Tampa, and Clearwater. The restaurants right across the street were a very nice convenience and the food was delicious! There is a Publix grocery about a 5 minute drive away, as well as a Walgreens and CVS. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Beautiful condo, very well stocked with supplies. Details of condo and location accurate.

  • 4 of 5

My daughters and I came to Flordia to attend a wedding. We were extremely pleased with the spacious two bedroom, two bath condo. Upon entering, the condo smelled fresh and clean. The condo was well maintained and kept up to date with furnishings and everyday supplies. Everything was convenient. An ample supply of attractions and places to eat was made available. Gulf Blvd. is an easy drive to anywhere you would want to go. I especially liked the parking under the building. Although we were not overlooking the beach, the beach was just a short walk away. The pool was not very big, but we spent most of our time on the beach. Since we were on the second floor, everyone needs to be able to use the stairs comfortably. I would recommend this condo to family and friends. Indian Rocks Beach is a beautiful area.

BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in May, the condo is bigger and beautiful than the pics and Penny is a great host!! The condo has everything that you would need, no you can't see the ocean but the palm trees sure do make a beautiful view, steps to the beach, lots of baby items that came in handy with my 6 month old grandson which the umbrella worked great on the beach for him and out of the sun and mostly the washer and dryer. We will definaletly stay here again, it is a peace of paradise.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. It was very clean and it was supplied with almost everything you need. Very easy walk to the beach and the beach was very clean. Everything was in working order. We will definitely stay here again. This one is the best we have ever stayed in!

Stayed here for a week this past April. The condo was clean and very spacious. Parking was included underneath the building. There is one building between the unit and the beach. Your balcony looks out at palm trees which actually provide some privacy. Once you walk downstairs you are literally steps from the beach. You do not have cross any streets or deal with any other hazards.

Indian Rocks Beach is a great little town. Whereas Clearwater is very congested, IRB is just right. There are plenty of dining and shopping options within walking distance of this unit. If you want to drive then you can head south to Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, St. Pete Beach, etc. in a matter of minutes. You are also a short drive from Largo which has many banks, food stores (i.e. Publix), and departments stores.

The condo itself could use new beds (mattresses, box springs, whatever it takes). I'd upgrade the glassware in the kitchen. Let's get rid of the Zenith tube television set in the master bedroom (Zenith has been out of business for 20+ years). The television can be replaced by an off brand flat screen for relatively little cost. [Maybe raise the rental rate by $100 and have the improvements paid for within a few months.] Having said all of this, the location of this unit is outstanding. The beach is terrific. Don't bother driving an hour plus to Siesta Key. This place is great. Plus you can rent kayaks, paddle boards, etc. right across the street. There is a small pool available to use but the beach is so awesome I didn't bother.

Penny, the owner, is very nice and easy to deal with. I change travel locations from year to year but I would certainly stay here again if I returned to the Sun Coast. Recommended!
