Pointe condo description

DEEP DISCOUNT FOR JUNE 2014, BOOK EARLY!
email: beachbalcony103@yahoo.com
This gulf front unit is right on the beach! Convenient first floor (not ground floor), over-sized condo, open floor plan, one bed/one bath unit, has spectacular views of the beach. Enjoy the private balcony, waking to dolphins and pelicans while having breakfast or end your day with fabulous sunsets. Newly remodeled in 2012, so all you need to bring is your toothbrush! Indian Shores is a relaxed, uncrowded but lively gulfside beach with fabulous dining and nightly entertainment establishments.

Our condo complex is called The Pointe because we sit closest to the water. The private balcony has beautiful, panoramic views all the way out to the horizon & all the way up & down the gulf beaches on both sides! A reserved parking space at the rear of the building provides easy access to unload your belongings. The Pointe is a small, secure, six floor building, with four units per floor, the ground floor being the lobby and parking area. With only 20 units in the building, there is no waiting for the elevator or walking down long hallways.

This fully furnished unit was just remodeled in July 2012 and features a KING size bed, a QUEEN trundle bed with real mattresses (not an uncomfortable sofa sleeper), central A/C,fully equipped full size kitchen, linens/towels/beach towels etc. The unit also features a 42” Flat screen TV/DVD in living room & 24” Flat screen in bedroom, with a DVD collection to watch when you are done taking the sun!

The kitchen is equipped with everything you may need from coffee to appliances and cookware if you choose not to go out to the many local restaurants in walking distance. Located across the street is the landmark, Salt Rock Grill. Great cafe across the street for breakfast or light lunch. Down the road find The Pub for waterside dining or try The Slyce for pizza! This property is ideally located close to supermarkets, World Famous John's Pass Village Shops with restaurants, excursions and tours, world class beaches, water sports and fishing. Walk to mini-golf or visit Seabird Sanctuary. Tampa is 45 minutes away and 90 minutes from Orlando.

A mere 30 minutes from the Sea Rays stadium, Bucs Arena and the Lightning home ice. A short drive also provides access to Disney World, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Universal Studios and Epcot Center.

This home is cared for by the owners who take great pride in making your stay a happy one, so you will come back for years to come!

                    This property is exactly what you see on the net. We enjoyed many meals on the balcony while enjoying the many sea birds and a glass of wine each evening to watch the incredible sunsets. The owners are extremely responsive to every question or request you might have. Our month here was over way too fast and we cannot wait for our return trip. No problem recommending this property and giving the owners five stars.

                    We run a tourism operation that consumes our summer, so at the end of our season we take our vacation. We have visited several different places but find most have failed our checklist of key ingredients, which include: Warm climate, Close to a nice beach, Not crowded, Close to shopping, Not too far from the airport, Clean and comfortable accommodations, and Reasonable rates. This year, staying at the Beach Balcony condo in Indian Shores, we felt very fortunate. This condo checked all our key ingredients plus it offered a terrific direct view of the beach and the sunsets over the gulf. Dealing with the owners was a smooth process and everything was just as described. The weather was fantastic and the direct view to the water was the highlight. We spent many hours walking the beach and watching the sunset. This condo is perfect for a couple looking for a relaxing getaway. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, age 55+, sightseeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                    We had a terrific vacation. The condo clean, quiet and safe. We started every morning sitting on the balcony having coffee, watching the ocean and enjoying the sound of the surf and ended every evening doing the same. Everyone we met was friendly. We went to an NHL game as well as an NFL game....wicked!! There are flea-markets within a 2 or 3 miles which were fun to browse. All in all it was just a great relaxing vacation. We hope to return in the future. Thankyou so much for allowing us to enjoy a piece of your paradise!!

                    This Condo is in an ideal location. The landlords could not be more accommodating. This is our seventh year coming to this area and the unit is by far the cleanest and most well equipped. The owners have thought of everything to help make your stay a most enjoyable one. We are already planning to come back next year.

                    We were extremely pleased with the accommodations and said it was one of the best places we ever rented. Quiet building, quiet beach! The view is absolutely incredible! I would recommend this condo to everyone. Being on this floor made us feel like we were on the beach, even though we were just enjoying drinks on the balcony. Everything we needed was available in the unit, from beach chairs to towels to coffee! Loved this place!
