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!

Nice condo / Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a beautiful beachfront location. It was very clean and plenty of room for my family of 6. Loved the slider doors off the master bedroom, and the master bathroom and shower were very nice. The kitchen was also updated nicely. We spent many hours on the large balcony, watching the incredible sunsets, and the beauty of the Gulf. The outdoor grounds and pool was also very clean, and cared for well by maintenance staff.

The following are just a few things that would be helpful to know ahead of time:

* There were plenty of bath towels provided, however only 2 pool towels were provided. I have family living in the area and (luckily) we were able to borrow some towels for our stay.

* Laundry Soap, Dishwasher Soap, and Dish Soap (for the sink) were not provided. We brought our own laundry detergent to use during the stay. However, the laundry machine had a note on it specifying to use HE detergent only, which we did not have. So, we ended up purchasing this on our own. It might be a good idea to supply this to renters so that the life of your washing machine is a nice long one.

All in all, we all had a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at my renovated beachfront condo. The new kitchen is certainly a pleasure to work in and the views from the large beachfront balcony are truly spectacular. Thank you for your comments regarding the beach towels. My listing does state that 2 beach towels are provided. However, I will highlight that for future guests. Also I will highlight that the washing machine requires HE detergent. I am glad you had a lovely vacation enjoying all the amenities of my condo as well as the newly renovated pool area. Hope to see you back.

Clean, new appliances (including washer & dryer), well equipped.

Very nice 3 bedroom unit. Trish (owner) was great to deal with, and there were no surprises. Sandcastle II has a great beachfront area, the pool area is well maintained, and the entire facility is kept clean.

We would recommend this unit to friends and family.

Terrific place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed in this condo which is only steps away from a gorgeous family beach. It was very clean and the comfortable beds were already made. All you have to do is walk out on the large porch and view the gulf. It's a great place for morning coffee! It is very spacious and well equipped. The pool and spa were cleaned every morning. There's a great restaurant across the street on the Intercoastal Waterway, should you choose not to drive. There are grocery stores close by as well, but you will need a car to get there.. You will have covered parking and there are grocery carts near the two elevators that you can use to haul your groceries. There are beach chairs and an umbrella at the condo or you could take a tailgate tent and put it up on the beach. There are also chairs and umbrellas that you can rent. We are 4 women over 60 and it was the perfect place. It was very comfortable and we could get around and about without any problems. We had a wonderful time and hope to go back soon!!

Excellent condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo in a great area.

It is right on a beautiful beach with restaurants nearby and shopping within an easy drive.

Our family vacationed here for 5 weeks for the second year and enjoyed it very much.

The pool is very warm and very kid friendly.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending this unit.

The owner is very helpful if there are any problems

Best winter ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first winter to leave the cold of north for the sunny beaches of Florida. We chose Indian Shores because of location and this condo looked very nice! We were not disappointed! The condo was lovely and very clean and comfortable. The open concept and bright colors really gave us a feeling of living on the beach. We enjoyed many restaurants in close proximity of the condo and we took in several day trips to nearby places recommended by the owner. We will definitely return to this condo again! Trish was very easy to work with and answered all our questions.

The only regret is that the time went too fast!

We would recommend this condo to everyone:)🌴󝀊

Sincerely,

Sandi and Jim
