We had a wonderful week here at your place on the beach. It was our first family trip to the Gulf and this is a beautiful place. We loved everything -- water, sand, shells And, thank-you so much for the water toys you left for us to play with. We have left them and a few more for other families to enjoy. The Strouse Family

We had a wonderful time here with our family. This is our first vacation with our two granddaughters -(2 yrs and 2 months) the girls had a wonderful time. Eleanor loved the beach and the ocean and little Evelyn loved to nap on the king size bed!! Your condo is beautiful and wonderfully equipped. We had everything we needed. Thanks so much for providing a highchair. That was a very thoughtful gesture and we appreciate it. We used your beach toys and added a few to your collection. Thanks again - we hope to return again.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: We have lived in Florida for over 20 years. Before purchasing this unit, we scoped the beaches from the east to the west coast of Florida. When we found Indian Rocks Beach, we found our dream home away from home. The water is turquoise and feels tropical. The beauty of the location is unique in that it is private enough to just 'hide away' and relax; and, at the same time be close to some of Florida's main attractions. This location has it all.

                      Why the Owner Chose West Coast Vista:
                      We have a large family with eight children. At the time of purchase the oldest was 14 and the youngest an infant. One of our most favorite things about our unit is how close it is to everything. Literally, steps away from the gulf waters. You can see the kids building sand castles on the beach while sipping cocktails on the balcony. Our children are now grown and still love the beach and the proximity of the night life in Clearwater as well as the water/theme parks in Tampa and Orlando. Fishing from our private dock is another favorite of our younger teens. The list goes on......

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Some of the most popular benefits of this condo is it's size and location. The building itself is private with a total of 15 units. Even at full capacity, it is private and quiet. The sand is soft and white and the water is crystal clear. The condo is situated in the 'narrows' which is surrounded by both the gulf and the intercoastal. The photos are very deceiving. Most people, upon arrival, express how happy they are with the size of the unit and the views. It is very roomy and split into two sections: the gulf side and the intercoastal side. Come and check it out soon.
