Had an awesome week! The best complex of condos we've stayed at in the area.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many condos from Indian Rocks to Indian Shores. George and Raffi's is by far the best yet. Everything you need is provided. Great views of the beach, in the evening you could watch every bird imaginable finding a place to roost for the evening north of the condo in the trees. You couldn't hear them but it was quite a sight. The grounds and pool areas were clean and highly maintained. Met some of the owners and they made you feel at home. Back to our unit, very comfortable, most places we've stayed the furniture was to look at not sit on. This was the most comfortable yet. We will come here again and again!!!

Beautifully appointed, wonderful view, great communication/availability of owner! We will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

This BeachFront Penthouse is one of the most beautfully appointed condos we have ever stayed in. The view and location were great and the beds were soooooo comfortable. Everything you would need is included (but if you have to have anything "wrinkle-free" bring a travel iron- the only thing missing :) ) and of excellent quality. Very tasteful furnishings- not the usual bare bones furniture you so often find in many rental units. Raffi and George offered excellent communication before/during and after our stay along with access to them 24/7 by phone. As beautiful as the pictures are, this unit is even lovelier in person. We will definitely come back next year and for years to come. Thanks Raffi/George!!!

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked thru the door we knew that this condo was everything (and more) as described by other reviewers. It is lovely! The decor and furnishings are of very good quality (crown molding, wood floors, marble/granite surfaces). All of the items provided for our comfort and convenience were supplied as promised. Nothing was lacking; high quality blow dryers, kitchen nicely stocked, plenty of towels, etc. I was anticipating the beach chairs to be very basic; not so ~ the type of chairs I would purchase for a relaxing day at the beach. We received a call from George the evening we checked in just to be sure that all was clean, etc. We had one little hiccup during our stay ~ the coffee pot stopped working. No worries, one phone call and a few hours later a new one was delivered. George and Raffi provide a beautiful home but equally important they are professional and invested in their renters having a worry free stay. Needless to say we will be back!

The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented 4-12-19/2016 and in summary, this property is great in all regards. Location is perfect, straight drive from TPA if you arrive/depart there, on the beach, close to shopping, restaurants and all facilities. The unit itself is totally up to date with super modern appliances, entertainment systems and provides beach chairs, umbrella and other amenities for enjoying the beach which is directly in front of building. The owners are "the hosts with the most"--great communications, very accommodating and have a "can do" attitude and policy in dealing with those who rent. Cannot go wrong renting this unit if you want 1st rate facility, good responsible owners and a perfect location. Even those without car can find the beach trolley system stations directly in front of the building with reasonable fares to Clearwater, St. Pete beach and locations in between.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful. We stayed for a month and our vacation was perfect in every way.

The pictures on the website are completely accurate. The views are wonderful from every room. The master bedroom and living room have the view of the Gulf of Mexico. The guest bedroom has a beautiful view of the intracoastal waterway. The living room furniture is very comfortable. There is a recliner and the couch also reclines for your comfort. Both beds are very comfortable. There is also a recliner in the bedroom. We loved the walk in tile shower off the master bathroom. The owners have done a great job of making sure this condo feels like home. I love to cook and the kitchen is fully stocked. The only thing I had to buy was an 8x8 baking dish for breakfast casserole.

The condo was spotless. I have allergies and am a bit of a neat freak so this was important to me and very much appreciated.

George and Raffi were both great to work with. We have stayed in the area many times, but this was the first time we had used VRBO. Prior to our arrival I had questions about the condo which Raffi answered promptly. Upon check in, George called twice to make sure everything was going well.

We travel with a small Maltese Therapy dog which George and Raffi graciously allowed as a guest.

One of my favorite times of the day was having my morning coffee on the balcony and watching for dolphins. We spent most days by the pool and then came in to clean up and have a glass of wine while watching the sunset. I cannot say enough about the beautiful views.

When our guests came, we did the tourist routine. We went to Johns Pass for shopping and lunch. We went to Clearwater Aquarium. The aquarium is the home of, Winter and Hope from the movie, Dolphin Tale 1 and 2. We are from Michigan so we went to Lakeland to see the Tigers spring training game. We had dinner in Tampa at the Tampa Bay Brewing Company. Everyone enjoyed their meals and beers. We did not make it to the Cigar City Brew Pub, but it was highly recommended and will go the next time we are in the area.

There are many restaurants near the condo. Our favorites are Sweet Sage and The Conch Republic. Both have outside seating areas that allow dogs. The garden at Sweet Sage is beautiful and I have to say this is the first time my dog has been to a bar! We also in enjoyed Guppy's by the Beach in Indian Rocks.
