About Rich Ulrich

My wife, kids and I live 5 miles from the property location. If there are ever any issues with the unit we are less than 10 minutes away to come help out. We've lived in the area for over 25 years and have many great recommendations to fill your days....or you can just relax by the pool or beach like we do many days.

Rich Ulrich purchased this condo in 1998

Why Rich Ulrich chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We bought this condo in 1997. After our family grew larger we needed a little more room. We decided to keep the unit and use it as rental property in 2005. Driftwood Sands only has 45 units, which makes for a nice, quiet spot to enjoy a month on the beach or longer.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy a direct view of the beach and the nightly, unpredictable and fascinating sunsets.

great beach front condo

  • 4 of 5

We have traveled to Indian Rocks beach in the past to visit family, so the area was familiar. The condo is right on the beach. Mornings can be coffee and breakfast watching the beach walkers. It just takes a few minutes to exit down the stairs to the short access path. Owners storage has many beach chairs, sand toys, umbrellas, also a big tire wagon to carry all items. The kitchen is modern and has all appliances one would need. Our 4 kids, each shared one of the two bedrooms, since most of the time is spent out with family or the beach, the rooms worked well. Master bedroom was large with large closet, shower and two separate sinks. Hope to return in the future.

We spent Thanksgiving here and has a wonderful time. The condo is beachfront. You can lie in bed and look at the waves.

Very secure building, and a private parking spot too.

Thank you Rich and Barb, we loved it.

Gulf bliss

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property eight times at different times of the year and have always had a wonderful vacation, hence the reason for returning. We have visited Driftwood on our own and with family and friends. We have always found the property to be as it is described being well maintained, conveniently located and safe. It is set in beautifully maintained grounds with a lovely pool and cabana for shade and gas bbq's. The condo is clean and well equipped and the owner is close by should there be any problems. We have always found it to be a true home from home. There are several malls / outlets within a short drive for shopping (International in Tampa and the Ellenton outlets near Bradenton). Busch Gardens is nearby in Tampa and the attractions of Orlando are approximately 90 mins drive away. If we have visited the Orlando parks we usually stay over for 1 night to make it a more relaxing experience. There are several good restaurants nearby. We especially like Guppy's, Salt Rock, Harry Seltzers and Beachcomber in Clearwater.

It is sheer bliss to sit on the beach and watch the sun go down, or sit on the balcony and watch the weather change. We have stayed in other properties at Indian Rocks, but none have been as good or as comfortable as this one. The balcony is a joy at lunch since the sun does not hit the front until the pm. The whole property is so calm because many residents are at work during the day so the pool area is quiet except for the school holidays and even then it is not overrun or noisy. There is a shuffleboard court which is fun in the cooler times. The beach is a joy to walk in the early morning and we have found many fossilised shark's teeth as we walked towards the Belleair properties. We have always felt safe and happy in this property knowing that any problems will be swiftly dealt with.

The condo is equipped with dish washer and all mod cons as well as a huge flat screen TV with over 100+ Brighthouse channels and a tv and dvd player in the bedroom.
