Independence Square Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Unit With The Livingroom And Master Bedroom Opening Onto Gulf

Breath Taking View From The Wrap-Around Deck. This Fourth floor condo has windows on THREE sides to give you the wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico no matter which way you are

facing. The Master Bedroom is on the beach side, so leave the sliding glass doors open and fall asleep to the sounds of the surf! Plantation shutters and light wood tones give you that Florida Vacation feeling. Relax poolside, read a book under an umbrella beach side, or take a siesta on the HUGE Wrap-Around deck under the overhang. Fish right off the beach and in the evening cook your fresh caught seafood in the spacious gourmet kitchen as you relive your perfect day in paradise.

About Doug Quinn

I am a retired dentist and my wife is a Realtor. We left Atlanta and moved to the Tampa Bay area in 2001. Glenda worked for a Fortune 50 company for 20 years before starting her own Marketing company. When she sold the company and we moved to Fla I was able to continue practicing dentistry. I joined the practice of an Emory Dental school classmate who had set up in this area after we graduated. I re-retired in 2008 and became bored. My wife was a realtor so I went to class and got my Fla real estate license. We love the beach and Gulf of Mexico and have become sales specialists in waterfront property.

Our home is 10 minutes from this condo. We are on the Intracoastal waterway with our boat on a lift in the back yard. I can be in big water in less than 15 minutes right out John's Pass. That is why we don't live in the Pier House quite yet. Hard to give up what we already have. We really do plan on moving into this particular condo when we really RETIRE....whenever that is!!!

Doug Quinn purchased this condo in 1994

Why Doug Quinn chose Indian Rocks Beach

When we bought this condo we had a check list of 'must have' features. Some of those criterea could be sacrificed but not the need to have the master bedroom open onto the beach. There is nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of the waves....except for waking up to the same sounds.

The unique design of this building gives our end unit sliding doors and decks on the North side as well as the West side(the one facing the beach). This is by far the brightest, most open 1500 square foot condominiums I have seen in this area. We feel if you are at the beach you should be able to have a view of the sand from every room. Well, we do.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is on the 4th floor of a 5 story building. The unit above ours is 200 square feet larger. As such it provides with an overhang on the balcony. This was an unexpected bonus and provides protection from the occasional rain shower.

We own 2 assigned parking spaces, one under the building and the other just outside the North elevator. Close to the covered parking space is a beach locker where we provide beach chairs and umbrellas.

Great location and the sunsets were wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had done such a booking and we were aware of the pitfalls that could happen but our owner Doug Quinn put our minds at rest. From the time of the initial booking to the very last day of our vacation he was contactable and willing to help to ensure that our vacation were without any problems.

We are from the UK so knowing the area was not easy but Doug ensured us that what we wanted was close or just a short drive away. he was not wrong. If it was a bite to eat, a drink and some live music "Crabby Bills" was just across the road, but far enough away that we were not disturbed by any noise.

On our arrival the condo was clean and welcoming with plenty of room for our clothes etc. The walk in shower for the master bedroom was fantastic. The view from the balcony could not be bettered. The sun set happened directly in front of our condo which was on the forth floor. Doug had provided all the necessary beach towels and equipment so our time on the beach was great. The pool area was always quiet except for one night when some visitors decided to have a little too much to drink. Only the one time so no real problem. The pool was clean and warm with ample loungers, seats and sun shades. Easy access to the beach was a bonus.

Underground parking for our rental car and secure elevator was worth while. Overall this was a good introduction to condo renting in Florida. Doug explained everything and ensured that the wi-fi was working as this was important to us.

Great time and good memories. Just what we wanted. Sad to leave such a great place.

View, Owners caring and available

  • 5 of 5

Three sided ocean views are rare. The property owners who lived close and were available really wanted us to enjoy the unit and delivered a new bedroom TV when we had trouble with the existing TV. We have already made our reservations for 2016.

Best Condo in Indian Rocks Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many condos in Indian Rocks Beach, but this one stands out as THE BEST. The condo was very clean and well stocked. The beach and pool area are fantastic. Doug, the owner, was wonderful to work with and made our stay one to remember. We hope to come back again!

Very special place-love it!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at the Quinn's condo was as special as our first visit. The views from this condo are truly outstanding and we also love the large balcony. This is a quiet family beach location with gorgeous sunsets and my family enjoys fishing right off the shore. This beautiful condo is spacious, clean, well supplied and decorated, yet homey and comfortable. We hope these kind and welcoming owners keep their condo available as a rental for many years to come.

Most enjoyable beach vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect choice for our first visit to the gulf coast of Florida. Waking up to the sight and sounds of the ocean was so relaxing. We enjoyed everything about the condo, as well as the location with so many restaurants and shops within walking distance. We definitely plan on returning!!!
