Property description

Free Amazing Sunsets Daily Across the Street!

You can lounge around the Olympic-sized pool with a good book or stroll across the street to the private beach access to float in the warm Gulf waters or just soak up the sun. If you go out the back, you can throw in your fishing line. There are fishing poles and some basic tackle if you want to try your luck. If you get lucky, you can cook your catch on the BBQ grills and eat at the picnic tables waterside. Or you can watch the dolphins do the fishing and see them playing up and down the waterway. Occasionally you will even see a manatee! There is a preserve across the waterway where you will see a variety of birds. You will also watch a daily parade of boats along the waterway.

There are always lots of birds from the preserve across the water, many hoping for handouts. If you want to learn more about the birds, just walk across the street to the Suncoast Sea Bird Sanctuary, a place for rehab of injured birds and breeding for zoos around the world.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We have just sold our real estate and property management business which has been on Indian Rocks Beach since 1971. We are retiring, or trying to, so that we can do a little traveling around this beautiful country of ours. We also want to visit and re-visit many of the wonderful places here in Florida. Our two children and six grandchildren live in South Florida so we are regular visitors there. We like to garden in our well landscaped yard when we are not traveling. We enjoy going to the beach almost daily now. We also like to do a little kayaking around the local mangrove trails. We are active in several local charities and enjoy joining many of our friends that enjoy the sport of motorcycling which gives a special perspective as we travel. We travel by motorcycle as much as we can, usually during the warmer months. The condo gives us a place to camp out when we go to the beach. It also gives family and friends a place to stay when they come for a visit.

Why the Owner Chose Belleview Gulf:
We purchased this unit because it was close enough to our home for us to use as often as we wished and close enough that when family came to visit they had a beautiful place to stay during their visit and which gave them lots of things to do. It was also close enough that we can make sure it is always clean and in good condition for visitors.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy sitting out back and watching the boats cruise by. It is easy to toss in a fishing line while watching the birds and the dolphins. The huge pool out front allows for a quiet nap on a raft as we float around. The best part is walking across the street to watch the sunset. We enjoy taking long walks along the waters edge, watching the birds and the sea life visable from there. It has such a calming effect. It makes even a bad day a great day in our little paradise. Priceless!
