This past fall we took the condo off the calendar to facilitate a complete renovation. We started with a new ceiling, new paint in every room, new doors and trim, and new tile floors throughout the unit. The kitchen was entirely gutted and there are new cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. The bathrooms have been totally redone with new cabinets, fixtures, and tiles. The master bath has a travetine shower with a seat. The master bedroom has entirely new furniture.
This direct Gulf front condominium is located on the 6th floor of the popular, family-friendly Sand Castle I Condominiums. The master bedroom and living room share a large balcony directly overlooking the beach. While looking out the balcony’s sliding doors, either from your comfortable King size bed or from the cozy leather sofas, you are looking at the beautiful white sands and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
The balcony overlooking the pool and the beach offers the perfect seat for watching the sunsets and listening to the calming crashing of the waves on the shore. Enjoy the fabulous view of boats cruising the intercoastal waterway from the window of the 2 guest bedrooms.
The master bedroom has a new king size bed, the second bedroom has 2 queen size beds and the third bedroom has a new queen size bed. This condo is fully equipped with a washer and dryer, flat screen TV in every bedroom and a large flat screen TV in the living room.
The condo offers free wireless internet and unlimited long distance calling to the US and Canada.

Indian Shores is situated to the south of Indian Rocks Beach, and is a barrier island community on Florida’s Gulf Coast. The Gulf is to the west and the Intracoastal Waterway is to the east, divided by the main thoroughfare, Gulf Blvd. The town is just 19 blocks long, but is known for its friendly atmosphere, panoramic beaches, great seafood and tropical wildlife (home to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary). Indian Shores is convenient to famous theme parks, and the cities of Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa.
Year Purchased: 2013
About: We are parents of two 20-something girls and a teenage boy from Massachusetts. We wanted to find a warm getaway from the cold northern winters.
Why Sandcastle I: We bought this property because it is beachfront and has glorious sunsets. The wonderful walking/biking lanes on the main road are an added benefit, making it very easy to get around. That is, if you can leave the fantastic white sand beach!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: There are loads of stores and restaurants in the area, while the famous John's Pass Village and Boardwalk just down the road offers more than a hundred shops and galleries in a quaint fishing village setting. In the opposite direction, you can easily get to the Clearwater nightlife.
