"We stayed in the Gulf Retreat from July 4- July 11. We have rented several houses/condos from VRBO and have never had a bad experience, but this condo is easily our most favorite rental we have ever stayed in. There aren't enough good things I can say about this condo. It was our first trip to Indian Shores; we usually vacation to Panama City Beach. We decided to drive a couple of extra hours and we are so glad we did. This condo is just as it is pictured, only better. It could not have been more clean or more well-decorated or more well-equipped. The view from the master bedroom makes it hard to get out of bed! I'm a nature lover/bird watcher and staying on the Inter-coastal Waterway is something I highly recommend. I would wake up early every morning to enjoy my coffee on the balcony, watching blue herons and dolphins. We were blessed with 7 full days of perfect weather. We spent half of our trip on the beach; the wagon Darryl and Isabel provide make it so easy to haul everything you need for a wonderful day at the beach; it's only a 5 minute walk. We spent the other half relaxing by the pool. The location couldn't have been more quiet and peaceful. It's close to great restaurants and not far at all from St. John's Pass where the boys spent a day on rented jet skis. It's also close to the Clearwater Aquarium where we had a girls day visiting Winter the dolphin, from A Dophin Tale. You HAVE to check out the new ice cream shop right down the street, named Haze. The ice cream is hand made and we had it every night!! I could honestly go on and on about the Gulf Retreat and about Indian Shores!!!! Halfway through our trip I even emailed Darryl trying to book the condo again for Spring Break, but they were already booked and I can understand why! We will DEFINITELY be back and we highly recommend the Gulf Retreat!!!"

"Stayed for 7 nights and this place had EVERYTHING that I needed. CLEAN. Great location. Comfortable. Perfect price. Next to pool. Have stayed in complex before and this condo was MUCH nicer!!! Owners were easy to work with. Decor was spot on with the beach theme! I have stayed in a lot of places up and down the beach and this is one of the best. My only wish....that is was on the other side of the street and situated on the Gulf of Mexico!!! I WILL BE BACK!!!!"

"Loved Madeira Beach and this condo. Very nicely decorated and having all the beach chairs, toys, towels...was really convenient for us. We used the stairs rather than the elevator as this was more convenient. So many things to see and do!"

"We all had the best time!! I am so glad I found the house - for our vacation this year. We loved the pool, used the boat every day, went to Catches and Rum River Tiki. We saw dolphins, a manatee, crabs, starfish, the tiniest sea horse ever, and those lizards!! We even adopted a blue heron who hung out with us every time we were outside on the dock! It was a great week!!"
