About Catherine Smith

Rick and I started traveling on vacation to the area searching for our future 'retirement home'. We always thought that we would purchase a home in a nice quiet neighborhood and maybe be lucky enough to have a pool. Each year that we came down we spent more and more time on the beaches of Florida. Each day we would travel to a different beach, Venice, Honeymoon, St. Pete's, Pass-a-grill, Clearwater. After several years we realized that we did not want a home in a nice quiet residential area, we wanted to be on the BEACH.

Catherine Smith purchased this condo in 2004

Why Catherine Smith chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Fifty Gulfside at Indian Rocks beach has the best of everything. A nice quiet condominium with heated pool and fabulous tenants and owners. Walking distance to restaurants, bars and nightly entertainment and in between Clearwater and St. Pete's Beach. You can jump on the trolley and travel the entire 25 miles along the Gulf on Gulf Boulevard. It really is the Best of The beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Day and night you can watch the Dolphins swim by, if you are lucky enough you can even see manatees. If you are lucky enough you can stay at Indian Rocks Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our location has so much to offer you don't even have to leave. Swim in the heated pool, sun bathing on the fabulous pool deck, body surf in the Gulf, surf fishing out the back door or intracoastal fishing across the street. Numerous beach games, horseshoes, volley ball, sandcastles and kites, the list is long.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great condo in a great location for Spring break

  • 5 of 5

Close to the airport (PIE). Far enough away from the chaos of Spring breakers yet close enough that if that's your thing you can be in Clearwater, John's Pass, or St. Pete Beach in minutes. Fish the ocean or intercoastal.

Considerate Owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at 50 Gulfside and my nephews stayed in Ms. Smith's condo. There was construction on the outside of the building and she was thoughtful and left a bottle of wine and her apologizes to my family, which was very much enjoyed. The condo was clean, comfortable and provided a much needed pack and play for a 6 month old. Even though on the waterway side the view was still very nice. They didn't feel like they were missing anything. In addition, the condo was spacious and provided adequate seating for the family games. Thank you for a very enjoyable experience. We will return!

Nice Rental Unit

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week in March.The unit was clean and updated.The location was perfect within walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars.The building has a nice heated pool along with 2 BBQ grills and an elevator.We booked in same building for next year but are renting a different unit preferring an ocean front unit compared to an intercostal view.

Great location for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 50 Gulfside. The condo was very roomy and had all of the comforts of home and enough utensils and pots to cook Thanksgiving dinner (if needed). We loved the fact that the beach was just a few short steps away and the heated pool was great since we stayed during a "cool" spell. The location is quiet, but close to many of the attractions we were looking for. We would definitely stay here again!!

Great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here while visiting my dad. The condo is very roomy and clean. Has everything you need. Great spot since we can go right downstairs to the beach, which was not crowded. The beach was beautiful! I had never been to Indian Rocks beach and I must say I think it is my favorite. I would definitely stay here again. Maybe next year!
