----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THIS IS NOT AN ORDINARY VACATION CONDO - IT IS OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME, AND IS EQUIPPED AND CARED FOR AS SUCH. We and our family spend time in the condo throughout each year and have furnished, equipped and decorated it to the high standard we wish to enjoy. If you come stay here it is that comfort you will be sharing.

Our condo is a very spacious (1650 sq ft), fully air-conditioned, THREE BEDROOM apartment with private direct beach access and a shared pool which is heated in the winter months. It was built in 2000, and is beautifully furnished and recently redecorated. The kitchen has just been upgraded in fall/winter 2014/5, with new cupboards, new tiling and a granite worktop.

Our unit's position is TO THE RIGHT OF the text on the main listing picture and our unit balcony is almost touching the right pointing arrow in that picture - see main picture.

The condo sleeps six in one king (en-suite) bedroom, one double, and one twin bedrooms. Every bedroom has cable TV, hi-fi, and phone. The king bedroom also has a DVD player.

The king bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with WC, bath, washbasin, and separate shower cubicle. In addition it has a large walk-in wardrobe/cupboard room.

The main accommodation area provides seating for six on a leather corner sofa unit and a leather recliner. There is a new cable TV, with DVD, and a surround sound cinema unit which also plays CDs.

There is a PC with printer, which provides broadband internet access for our guests (including wifi).

The dining area seats six around a large formal table. There is ample cupboard and drawer space.

The living accommodation and bedrooms have been tastefully furnished with pictures, paintings, and more than ample lighting provided by table and reading lamps. There are overhead fans in all bedrooms and in the living areas. The accommodation is carpeted and tiled throughout.

There is additional seating for six in the fully equipped luxury kitchen area which has a large work surface and is complete with self cleaning range/cooker, a microwave, and a fridge/freezer with ice-maker. The kitchen also has a full range of cooking utensils and a full range of crockery and cutlery for at least six people. There is also a food mixer, a coffee maker and a blender.

The main house bathroom is conveniently situated between the twin and double bedrooms and has a bath/shower with sliding screens, WC, and wash basin. There is a further cloakroom facility with WC and wash basin in the utility corridor which also contains a washer and a separate tumble dryer together with iron and ironing board.

The condo is 1650 square feet in size and has two balconies - one which catches the sun beautifully in the afternoon and has two reclining chairs, two seats, and two tables and provides partial sea and beach view. The other balcony is at the other end of the condo and is equipped with two seats.

The condo is an upper level unit in a block of two which stand above their own exclusive covered parking with space for two cars for each unit. Parking permits will be provided.

TENANT FEEDBACK - READ WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT OF OUR CONDO:

We had a great time! Your condo was much more than we expected. Everything was so nice and clean. The pictures do not do it justice. We will definitely rent again and also recommend your place to others. Thanks so much. (July 2009)

'Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful condo for the week. We really got to relax!! I have been coming to Indian Rocks since I was in the womb .... and now I bring my own children to enjoy the quiet, calm get-a-way, and your place is the nicest we have had the pleasure of discovering. Every luxury we needed too, plus! We hope to enjoy it again next year!'

'......we had a delightful time at your condo. It even exceeded our expectations. We hope we can rent it again sometime from you. It met our needs very well. We enjoyed many walks on the beach, as well as fine dining in the area. I also appreciated having the computer handy to check on a number of things. Again, thanks for allowing us to rent from you. I was a hero in our family for selecting such a nice place to stay!'

'We had a wonderful time at your condo. It was by far the best we have ever stayed in! It was very spacious and clean. We absolutely loved it. We may be interested in staying there again next year. Do you know if it is available yet? We have not decided 100% if we are making the trip, but if we do we would love to stay there again. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your condo!'

'The condo was fantastic. I'm already checking out the calendar to see when we can come back and stay again. Thanks for everything.'

About Ian

Hi

We are from Scotland and are both professionals - accountants. We have a growing family who also enjoy their own visits to the condo.

We love our condo by the beach and while we come over from the UK as often as possible to enjoy it, we are also happy to share it with others.

We don't regard the lettings as a business - just a way of making sure the condo gets looked after and used - and it helps cover our costs of course.

We hope you will be able to enjoy it too!

Ian and Fiona

Ian purchased this condo in 2004

Why Ian chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We bought the condo to have somewhere of our own by the beach - for vacations at first - and then to use for longer stays when we retire and the kids have flown the nest.

We preferred the flexibility of our own place to living in hotels, and decided to buy somewhere spacious so we could rattle about it in just like home and not feel we were compromising on space and facilities just to have somewhere to vacation.

We confess to liking our comfort and our luxuries!

Add to that the attractions of Indian Rocks Beach - quiet and neighborly - but only a few minutes away from the attractions at Clearwater Beach, and the other attractions of the beaches and towns here - and only 15 minutes away from Largo Mall and the cinema - and you have an ideal location for a vacation as quite or as active as you could wish.

We redecorate regularly and are always updating and adding bits and pieces - so there is always something new in the condo.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is in a quiet location yet only a few steps from the beach. It is well decorated, very well equipped and easy to relax in.

If you are bringing the family you will find that we have put TV and HiFi in every room (lounge and all 3 bedrooms) so there is flexibility for everyone to do what they want without getting in each others' way - which so often happens in smaller, less well equipped condos.

And there is a desktop computer with broadband (and printer) for local information gathering, email, or games (although you will need to bring your own games!).

The computer has just been upgraded and is much faster!

There is also wifi throughout the condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the time spent at your condo and would love to return again. The condo is beautiful and spacious and the beach is one of our favorite places to be.



You will find a styrofoam cooler in your back closet near the air conditioner and a beach umbrella under the stairs that we left behind for you. (They were too big to carry on the plane.)



Thanks again for letting us enjoy your condo.

Indian Rocks Condo at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great condo and location on the beach, well cared for unit with all the amenities that you need. Was recommended to stay here and would recommend to all. Was close to a number of good restaurants and short drive to additional places as well as entertainment locations.

Thanks Ian for making our arrangements simple and easy.

Cheers

Very Nice and Affordable Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sea Isle for a week at the end of October 2015. The place was gorgeous inside. Very clean and a lot of extras (dishes, glasses, towels, soaps...just to name a few). The location was great, especially as close to the Gulf as we were! We loved the morning strolls on the beach as well as some sunsets and evening wave-watching, and to be able to just walk right back up the path to the condo made it even more special and relaxing! I recommend the Sea Isle!

Amazing Location!

  • 4 of 5

Michiganders need sunshine. So sunshine is what we seek.

My extensive search began as the search always starts; by reading reviews. The Sea Isle Villas were a perfect fit with location, availability to suit our travel dates, AND fabulous reviews.

Ian! Everyone was right about Ian. A perfect gentleman with perfect response time; so important when planning, so comforting during travel dates.

When we unlocked the door using the keybox, we were all pleasantly relieved. The unit is beautiful, especially the renovated kitchen. The space was more than what two adventurous mature couples needed, but we welcomed the extra room and amenities.

The overall experience was favorable. The disappointment we experienced in the response, or rather the unresponsiveness of the "key holder", Mary. We never saw her. The only time I heard her voice was when I phoned...and got her voicemail.

She did not " meet" us, as was indicated in her email, she did not arrive to secure the unit(and our personal items) when a routine furnace maintainence appointment occurred during our rental period. She did not have the combination to the bike lock, although Ian had indicated in the Welcome Folder that she would, and responded to me via text that I should have read the folder more carefully. Four professional adults had already searched through the folder for the combination, and assuming the "keyholder" would have the information, inquired to receive the information - not a reprimand.

After other issues with a clogged dryer vent, a dusurbingly disgusting blanket and a filthy over-burdened vacuum cleaner bag( when was the carpet truly cleaned last?) I was more than frustrated with the unseen woman who was hired to represent the Owner's best interest. Sure hope Mary can step up her game.

I emailed Ian. He responded immediately! He then phoned the condo! Both my friend and myself were able to speak with him. Our visit was stellar. The incidental situations were bothersome. Ian was amazing-again.

We all agreed that we would stay again. The problems were not enough to sway us from a return visit to Sea Isle. Thanks, Ian!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience. It is always appreciated. I can only apologise that Mary - without whose help we could not let out our unit - was on a training course for her professional organisation during much of your stay. As i mentioned when we talked, most guests are happy to use the lockbox and to see Mary when they have settled in. She is available to meet and greet if requested, so I am not certain what happened this time. The blanket was in a wardrobe - rather than on a bed - where it had been stored away but very regrettably seems to have found its way back into the "using" pile. The cleaner brings her own vacuum cleaner and hovers all carpets on every visit as well as steam cleaning the tiles. In addition you are only the third guest to visit since we had Sears in to deep clean the carpets and stainproof them - so they were in fact very clean indeed! :) The washer vent is an odd one because it can be very dangerous, but in fact we - and the maintenance company - have been unable to replicate the fault, and the dryer has been working well. As you know it (and the washer) was new in the late fall, and again you were only its third user. I can only apologise for the inconvenience. Having said all that we are glad it didn't spoil your visit and thank you for your very kind feedback on our lovely home. Ian
