About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This direct Gulf front condominium is located on the 6th floor of the popular, family-friendly Sand Castle I Condominiums. The master bedroom and living room share a large balcony directly overlooking the beach. While looking out the balcony’s sliding doors, either from your comfortable King size bed or from the cozy leather sofas, you are looking at the beautiful white sands and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If the waters of the ocean are not quite warm enough for swimming in the winter, enjoy our heated pool and spa.

This condo has been completely renovated to HGTV style. The kitchen has new cabinets, granite counters, tile back splash and stainless steel appliances. The bathrooms have new cabinets, fixtures, and tiles, and the master bath has a travertine shower with a seat. The master bedroom has entirely new furniture. All bedrooms were outfitted with new mattresses and box springs.

The balcony overlooking the pool and the beach offers the perfect seat for watching the sunsets and listening to the calming crashing of the waves on the shore. Enjoy the fabulous view of boats cruising the intracoastal waterway from the window of the 2 guest bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a new king size bed, the second bedroom has 2 queen size beds with new mattresses and the third bedroom has a new queen size bed. This condo is fully equipped with a washer and dryer, flat screen TV in every bedroom and a 55" flat screen smart TV in the living room.

*****This is a premium condo listing.*****

The condo offers free wireless internet and unlimited long distance calling to the US and Canada.

NOTE: If the week you are looking to book is already blocked off, we have the condo right next door, also beautifully updated. See VRBO# 3851512ha for pictures and availability. Great for large families who want two condos side by side!

Everything we needed was there.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was clean and well stocked with pans and dishes. We stayed in this condo last year and the remodeling that was done was very nice. It was nice to have an outside parking spot as the garage was hard to maneuver with a full size car. The only problem was only lukewarm water not hot in the kitchen no matter how long we let it run. The master bath sink had very low water pressure. Water pressure was ok in the showers. It was great to have extra beach towels in the condo. It was inconvenient to have a dryer that could not be used for towels or sheets. The pool heater was broken and waiting for a repairman but the hot tub was great! We would stay in this condo again.

Property was as described.

I am never disappointed with the gulf side of Florida. Property was very nice, well maintained and clean. Be prepared the grills do not work, but other than that it was what I expected.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay on this beautiful beach. The white sugar sand and the warm water are fantastic at this time of year. Thank you for letting us know about the grills. We will notify the building management that they need to be repaired. We try to make sure everything is working well for our guests. We hope to see you back in the future!

Nice condo and beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was plenty big for our family of 5 (3 kids - 11, 14 and 16). It was very well stocked and had everything we needed (including beach towels and chairs) to make our stay enjoyable. We had an issue with the drain in the master bath, called on a Sunday, got an immediate response and they came first thing Monday morning to fix it. We still had a little bit of a drainage issue again later in the week, but it was manageable. The electronic keypad/lock on the door was also hit or miss, but they gave us the code to the lock box so we just used a regular key all week, which was fine.

The beds were comfortable, the condo was clean and the view from the balcony was beautiful. The balcony has nice, comfortable furniture. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to make it back again soon!

About Michelle

We are parents of three from Massachusetts. We wanted to find a warm getaway from the cold northern winters.

Michelle purchased this condo in 2013

Why Michelle chose Indian Shores

We bought this property because it is beachfront and has glorious sunsets. The wonderful walking/biking lanes on the main road are an added benefit, making it very easy to get around. That is, if you can leave the fantastic white sand beach! This property is one of the most beautifully landscaped in the area, and the pool and hot tub are pristine. The building is very well maintained.

What makes this condo unique

There are loads of stores and restaurants in the area, while the famous John's Pass Village and Boardwalk just down the road offers more than a hundred shops and galleries in a quaint fishing village setting. In the opposite direction, you can easily get to the Clearwater nightlife. There is a great, inexpensive trolley system that goes up and down Gulf Boulevard.

Car: recommended

Indian Shores is situated to the south of Indian Rocks Beach, and is a barrier island community on Florida’s Gulf Coast. The Gulf is to the west and the Intracoastal Waterway is to the east, divided by the main thoroughfare, Gulf Blvd. The town is just 19 blocks long, but is known for its friendly atmosphere, panoramic beaches, great seafood and tropical wildlife (home to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary). Indian Shores is convenient to famous theme parks, and the cities of Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa.
