About the property

One bedroom apartment by the beach.

Our tranquil beach get-away offers everything you will need for a comfortable stay at an affordable price.

The condo was completely remodeled last summer. All furnishings and finishes are new.

The kitchen is well appointed with granite counter tops and custom wood cabinets. All appliances are new, including the stainless steel oven and refrigerator with ice maker. It contains every appliance and utensil you might need to prepare meals at your leisure.

The living room has a drop-leaf dining table that accommodates four. The living room also has a queen-size sleeper sofa, a flat screen TV with HD cable and a DVD player. Secure WiFi is provided free of charge.

In the mornings enjoy a fresh cup of coffee on the condo's private patio. In the evenings experience unbelievable sunsets with a glass of wine from the beach-side deck and you will remember those moments all year long.

The area has wide white sand beaches, and is very close to dozens of restaurants appealing to all tastes and price-points. There are also several malls and golf courses in the immediate area.

Other attractions nearby, include Busch Gardens, Hard Rock Casino, Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, Tiki Gardens, and the Town Square Nature Park. Florida’s famed theme parks Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World are just 90 minutes away.

Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable bed, plenty of room for family of 4, modern and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. Owners provide bath towels, beach towels, sand toys, beach umbrella and chairs. Private courtyard. Really close to restaurants, trolley and beach! We definitely come back!! Barbara

53 Steps was great for our stay..

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect set up for two people. The bungalow has been remodeled...granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, excellent bedding, and on the ground floor. The private courtyard in front is perfect for dining and plenty of room for our bikes, out of the salt air. Onsite laundry right outside the back door was quite handy. We stayed here six nights. We cooked some of our meals, we walked down the street for some meals, and biked to some meals. There is a trolley stop right outside if you prefer not to drive at all. The street is busy and can be noisy but at night its quiet. We would stay here again. It really is such a better experience than a high rise hotel. Grab a beer, get some sand between your toes and watch the sun set, you'll feel better.

Condo was furnished with everything needed to make a beach vacation fun. Beach umbrellas, chairs and towels included! There was even sunblock! Place was modern and clean, great for a couple! Close to great restaurants! Highly recommend the Salt Rock Grill for fine dining and Sweet Sage Cafe for an awesome breakfast!

The property is very clean and up to date.

Thanks again Manny and Marilyn! We'll be back again next year.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at 53 steps to the sand for our seven night vacation and it was by far the best, cleanest place we have ever stayed. You have everything you need here from kitchen utensils to beach equipment (which was a major plus for us since we flew here). The space is super comfortable and the location is great! If we ever come back to Indian Rocks Beach I will definitely book with Manuel and Marilyn again!

i would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time here and it really is just steps from the beach. You r basically provided everything you need...just bring clothes and food. I stayed with my 10 yr old granddaughter and great niece...they loved it....just minutes away from Clearwater...lots of good places to eat if you choose to eat out...I loved that the beach was not crowded...mostly families here which I also liked...Great SHELLING! We found some wonderful and beautiful shells and some quite large in size.
