              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: Parents of 1 teenager and 3 20-something kids from northern Michigan who have vacationed in this area since they were children. We wanted the perfect place to share with our friends and family. Finding a location that would suit all of our needs was important. The whole family agrees we found a gem. We are originally from Toronto, Canada and our Canadian family and friends are especially excited about joining the Snowbirds and heading to our condo for some fun in the sun.

              Why Sandcastle I:
              When we were looking for the perfect beach condo, we were fortunate enough to meet Cyndee Haydon from Charles Rutenburg Realty to help us. After months of searching on both the Atlantic Coast and up and down the Gulf Coast, we found everything we were looking for at Sandcastle 1, Unit 407. We are directly on the beach only steps from the Gulf of Mexico with easy access to St. Pete & Tampa airports. The 'narrows' (Gulf Blvd. is only 2 lanes wide here) is a quaint area with character, endless things to do and has the 'FLORIDA' vacation vibe. Sand Castle 1 boasts beautiful grounds, a large heated pool and hot tub right on the beach and is a very clean building. CLEAN is a priority for us. When we consulted our teenaged son and our 3 '20 something kids', they wanted us to be in a place that had a great beach and water, was nearby to golf courses and was close to tourist destinations such as Busch Gardens, Disney, Sea World and Universal Studios and had Professional Sports teams like Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Bucs, Rays Baseball, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees, Phillies and other MLB Teams in Spring Training and more all close by. Also, they wanted somewhere fun to go at night and have discovered great nightlife for young people in Clearwater, St. Pete, Tampa and within a short distance from the condo. Also close to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter the Dolphin and star of the movie 'Dolphin Tale'. As parents, we wanted to have a quiet, comfortable home away from home and somewhere for all of our family to enjoy, including any grandchildren in the future. We are so happy we found that perfect place. Thanks Cyndee!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Great weather, family friendly building, beautiful beach, amazing sunset views from Living Room and Master Bedroom and sunrise views over Intercoastal from Bedroom 2 and 3/Den. Clean and updated apt., 55' HD Flatscreen and 2- 32' flatscreen tvs, every amenity in apt., video game system for your kids, new kitchen under construction with granite countertops. Fully stocked kitchen equipment. Free wireless internet, free long distance to US and Canada, beach toys, covered parking near elevator, convenient 4th floor location with view of palm trees from every window, great restaurants within walking distance, boat and scooter rental across street.
