Why Ann OConnell chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We've spent many years vacationing in Clearwater-St. Pete Beach area. We fell in love with this condo the minute we saw it. This our home right on the beach, and we are so happy to share it. The views are incredible. It is so wonderful to see dolphins and beautiful sunsets right from the living room. We are directly on the beach, ground floor, facing the Gulf of Mexico

What makes this condo unique

This condo offers all the benefits of beach front living. Just walk outside the patio door and you are on the pool deck or step out onto the beach. There are no stairways, halls or other units separating you from the beach. If you don't want to rent a condo and then be disappointed with the view, you must come to this unit You can't get any closer to the beach than this

Fantastic location....best place on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Georgeous condo. You just walk out the door and you're on the beach! We enjoyed watching the sunset while sipping cocktails on the patio. And, we were close enough to walk to the restaurants and local night life. I am definitely going back to this place.

Amazing Place to Stay and Relax

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week at this beautiful condo and we could not have asked for anything more. The view from the windows is breathtaking. The condo itself was lovely with all the comforts of home. Two bedrooms, two baths open floor plan living room, dining room and kitchen. The bedding was very comfortable and the kitchen was well stock with the items we needed for nights we decided to dine in. Our stay was fabulous. The beach was wonderful, pool area was nice and clean. Unit is located on the first floor what made our life so much easier, especially for traveling with 2 year old. The owner stopped by to make sure we have everything we need. The management was awesome. So glad we found this place. We will definitely be back.

Thank you Ann!!!!!

Family vacation at this rental

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at this condo. The location was perfect. Great view and easy access to the pool for children. Kitchen was amazing. When we first arrived I believed the bedding wasn't clean so we contacted the owner and she did inform me it was but had the bedding changed immediately. The only complaint I have was that the bedrooms and bathrooms need a remodel. It wasn't terrible but out dated. Some of the bath room vents were very dusty and dirty as well as some walls and trim. Overall it was great and we would def come back again to this same condo.

Owner's Response: Brian I am sorry that your stay wasn't perfect. We rely on our guests to let us know at rhe time if something needs to be adjusted or corrected. After you notified me about the sheets I had housekeeping come to the unit to change the sheets. I asked you to call me and let me know if everything was ok. I also sent you an email for you to respond after housekeeping had left. I never heard back from you, so I assumed everything was ok. The dusty vent you referred to was for the previous air conditioner that was replaced a few months ago. The a/c no longer vents from there so it was probably forgotten about. We do plan a remodel in the fall of this year to replace all doors, closet doors and the obsolete vent you mentioned will be removed. The hall will have beautiful molding as well We are always booked so it is difficult in the busy season to do major remodeling. Last year's $40,000 makeover took six weeks to complete. I hope that you will stay at our unit again, but please as I mentioned in the email to you, let me know at that time if something is not perfect, so we can correct it immediately. What makes our condo so special is that we have a full time maintenance staff, an office on premises where you can pick up keys and discuss a problem, if one arises, and backup from the owner as well. Thank you again, I look forward to seeing you in the future.

Best Spot on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great condo with many updates that is a stone's throw from the water, then this is the condo for you. Indian rocks Beach (IRB) is awesome because it is in a low rise development area and there are many restaurants and shops within a few minute walk. The Jolly Trolley or a bike will take you to Clearwater in a few minutes if you're looking for that hustle and bustle. My family of five found this vacation very relaxing and loved staying here. We would recommend it!

Best view on the beach by far.

  • 5 of 5

Ann, I can't express how great it was to stay in your condo here at 50 Gulf Side. The kitchen, dining and living room area is to die for. I continue to tell people we know how great a vacation spot this is. Thank you so much for providing an awesome experience for my wife and I. The ground floor beach side patio is by far the best view we've ever had.

Right on the beach - Clean, very spacious and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect! My assigned parking was right outside my door, steps away. The convenience of being on the first floor, beach front was great. The new kitchen is a cooks' dream with everything we needed. The unit was surprisingly spacious, the beds were comfortable, internet was easy, staff was responsive and helpful. They recommended a bicycle rental guy who delivered and picked up bikes right to the unit.

The beaches at Indian Rocks are beautiful. Real old-Florida, not tons of huge high-rises. Many cottages and smaller buildings, but all were well maintained. We had the waterway on one side of the building and could watch boats coming in and the beach on the other side. The sunsets were spectacular and I could watch them right from the living room, or take a few steps, and see them right from the sand.

The owner was responsive and followed through promptly with the rental arrangements.

Overall, this was a great vacation in a great location. I will be back for certain!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We love that our guests have such a great time, and we love sharing our condo with our guests. We have looked at beachfront condos for 30 years and when our unit came up for sale we knew it was the one. Not only being so close to the beach with magnificent views, our condo is in a great area with restaurants and shops not too far away. We would love to have you stay with us again.
