About Trish Blyth

We are a Canadian couple currently living and working in Atlanta, Georgia. We have two children – our daughter goes to university in Canada and our son attends high school in Atlanta.

Trish Blyth purchased this condo in 2012

Why Trish Blyth chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We have been vacationing in the Indian Shores area for over 20 years. We chose to purchase an unobstructed, ocean view unit at Sandcastle II because of its beautiful (and perfect) location on the beach. Nothing beats being able to enjoy the ocean, day and night, from the comfort of our condo (we love spending time on our balcony) or sitting at the water’s edge with our feet in the sand. We love the quiet relaxing atmosphere of the area, too. When we crave more action, it’s easy to find it in Clearwater Beach, just 8 miles (20 min) north, and Treasure Island, 8 miles south and/or St. Pete, 12 miles (24 min) south. It truly is the best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

It’s newly and expertly renovated with comfort and beauty in mind – both yours and ours. Since we plan to spend time in the condo with family and friends for years to come, it was important that the extensive renovations be top notch. We succeeded – the condo feels like a resort with all the conveniences of home and more. Our intention is that you enjoy this beach vacation condo as much as we do, fall in love with this seaside paradise and come back year after year!

Sand Castle II family re-union September 2017.

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Sand Castle II . The location was outstanding and our unit was very well equipped. There are many great restaurants near by and we were also able to grill with ease. We definitely will keep this in mind for our next re-union and look forward to our next stay!!

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We loved your condo! It was spacious and beautifully decorated with gorgeous views of the water. We usually stay on St Pete Beach or Treasure Island for our annual Girls Beach Week but decided to try Indian Shores this year and your condo did not disappoint. The beach is beautiful and so much quieter than SPB or TI ... and the water is so much closer (unlike the .25 mile walk to the water on TI). Not as many restaurants within walking distance but some great options just a short Uber ride (or trolley) away. Loved Guppy's, Keegan's, and Crabby Bill's. Will definitely consider coming back here next year!

Great family get-away location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second stay in this unit. Everyone (ages 2 to 59) loved our family vacation this year. We went back and forth between the beach and the pool every day. Even though temps were high for the week we were there, we were able to manage a lot of quality time outdoors because of the amenities at Sandcastle II. We highly recommend this location and the condo specifically!

Beachfront vaca stay at it's best.........in the future would like to not smell cigarette smokers while sitting on the balcony.......cigarette smoke drifts everywhere....suggest that the building become smoke free and move all smokers into designated areas in the front parking lot close to road.

Well Appointed, Comfortable, Clean, Warm Atmosphere, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing my wife commented on upon our arrival was how clean this unit was. From the comfortable furnishings and beds to the stunning gulf views to the idyllic location nestled between St. Pete's beach and Clearwater, we couldn't have asked for more. We booked this stay online based on photos and reviews not being the least bit familiar with the area, and the entire family came to the consensus that we choose correctly. I have no doubts that anyone would enjoy their stay in this unit at this location ad thoroughly as we did. And while you are there, don't forget to check out the incredible ice cream place across the street and the George C McGough Nature Park just across the bridge into largo, a must see.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful and the furniture was very nice. We did have a problem with the sheets being either dirty or stained but it was taken care of. We arrived late and we did not have detergent and the extra sheets were locked in the closet. I have no complaint with the condo but I do think the cleaning service could do a better job.
