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!

Great accommodations, exceptionally clean.....great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful condo for a family of 5

  • 4 of 5

This condo is very clean, uncluttered, modern kitchen and bathrooms, bright living space in the common areas and bedrooms....very comfortable and relaxing for our family. The beds are extremely comfortable and, of course, the VIEW is gorgeous. We spent a lot of time on the balcony reading, playing cards, eating meals or just looking at the ocean. We loved being able to walk down to the beach and pool. For a week in , April, we were surprised at how much space we had on the beach. There were plenty of people staying at the condos and homes along the beach but the beach is not at all crowded. It is a beautiful beach.

The pool had more action but that was to be expected during April vacation and it was a well maintained pool and hot tub.

We did a day trip to Tree Umph, a climbing adventure park about an hour north of Indian Shores, and went to Clearwater Aquarium (overpriced with little to see or do in our opinion) but other than that, we were very happy to stay put and enjoy the beach. The Pub across the street was nice for a meal.

We recommend this condo.

Great place. Very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Unit was as advertised. Good kitchen, decent space. Only real issue is the parking situation. There is only 1 space per unit, and 4 "guest" spots for the entire 10-story building. Several people parked in the wrong spaces which of course trickled down to others. No issues with the unit itself. Would return again.
