Overview

About the property

Beautiful beach-view condo, 2 BR/2BA. Directly on the Gulf - walk to everything

2 BR/2 BA condo (sleeps 6 in three queen beds), located in the beautiful and upscale Oceanway condominium, built in 2004. If you have a larger group, we also own Oceanfront Units 202 and Unit 203 in this same building, so we can accommodate up to 18 people at one time if you book all 3 units (see these units at VRBO #948885 and VRBO #1098958). Under new ownership as of March 2016! This top floor corner unit has everything: gulf front heated swimming pool/hot tub. Inside and outside parking, elevator, superb location and white sand beach! View the Gulf from your private 20' balcony. Walk to Beach, Restaurants, and Shopping. Non-smokers rejoice -- this property is completely smoke-free, inside the unit and outside, including the pool, balconies, walkways, and all other common area. We provide numerous beach chairs in the unit, along with beach umbrellas and a 10 x 10 pop-up canopy for use at the beach. Several blocks down the beach to the left, there is also a rental company that rents deluxe chairs and cabanas by the day.

Condo has a king bed in the main master bedroom and a queen bed in the 2nd master bedroom (both with brand-new memory foam mattresses as of Spring 2017), and the living room has a Haverty's "Everyday Sleeper" sofa with a 4 inch memory foam queen mattress on a solid foundation -- VERY comfortable, unlike standard pull-out sofas with loose springs and thin flimsy mattresses. Large open kitchen with granite countertops, new appliances -- fully equipped with all the amenities of your own kitchen.

Free Cable TV and Wifi included. Also have Roku Streaming Device in main living room.

Walk to Beach, Restaurants, and Shopping. Non-smokers rejoice -- this condo complex is completely smoke-free, inside and out, including the pool, balconies, and walkways.

Your oceanfront smoke-free paradise vacation awaits you. Oceanway is well-known as the best condo property in Indian Rocks Beach -- a very laid back, romantic, yet family friendly community with a breathtaking white sand beach -- the next beach over from Clearwater Beach. The Oceanway Property, pool, hot tub, everthing is well-maintained -- everything is top notch here at Oceanway. The entire property is non-smoking, something very important and very hard to find. Sip your morning coffee on the huge balcony with an incredible view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico with the saltwater breeze kissing your skin and the ocean waves massaging your every sense. Enjoy your day at the heated, smoke-free pool or on the sun-drenched beach -- lounging, walking, fishing, swimming, playing in the pristine sand and surf, or floating on a raft as the waves gently rock away all your stress. Rent a canoe, kayak, or paddle board from the local rental shop.

When hunger hits, IRB (Indian Rocks Beach) beckons you with some of the best restaurants on the beach just a short walk away.

If you want to adventure a bit further --take a short 1.4 mile ride to enjoy a day of fun for all ages at Splash Harbour Water Park. Head up the coast just 5.8 miles to world-famous Clearwater Beach or down the coast 15 miles to St. Pete Beach. See "Getting Around" for information on the Suncoast Trolley which goes all the way from St. Pete to Clearwater.

Travel rIght and travel light -- you have your own washer and dryer in the unit.

This and so much more awaits you . . .

You won't need a car for this vacation. Besides being directly on the beach, you will be walking distance to everything you need. If you walk out of the condo and turn left, it is a 3- block walk to a wonderful French café and another breakfast and lunch place, and also the best Thai restaurant in the area for lunch and dinner. All three have outdoor seating. If you walk out the front and turn right, it is about a 3-block walk to one of the best restaurants in the area, Guppies on the Beach. Just past that is a small convenience store and food market for all of your basic shopping needs. For more heavy duty shopping needs, there is a Publix grocery store 1.7 miles away, but you would need to drive to that because it is across the causeway.

Plus you can hop aboard the Suncoast Beach Trolley with many stops in Indian Rocks Beach, including a stop at 21st Avenue, one block from your vacation paradise. Use the trolley to tour the Gulf Beaches stretching from Clearwater Beach south to Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, Redington Beach, Madeira Beach, St. Pete Beach and Pass-a-Grille. Focus on the shores and attractions near one stop or several--you'll find them easily accessible. Or, travel the entire route to get a truly comprehensive view of the coastal communities and sample their many offerings. Locals take the trolley too and they'll likely recommend some of their favorite shopping and dining spots that you may not otherwise find.

Up to three children five years old or younger ride for free with an adult, and affordable full-day unlimited ride passes are available. With trolleys arriving every 20 to 30 minutes between approximately 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. (midnight on Fridays and Saturdays), it's easy to cover the whole coastline in a full day of fun.

Clearwater Beach and Sand Key to the North:

The north end of the Suncoast Trolley route begins at the white sandy beaches near Pier 60 in Clearwater Beach. By day the soft white sand is the perfect spot to play volleyball and build sandcastles. You can also dine directly on the beach at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, a Clearwater Beach tradition (you must try the grouper sandwich!) and daredevils have their pick of parasailing and WaveRunner rentals to play above or in the blue waters.

Two hours before sunset, the park at Pier 60 comes to life with street performers, artists and musicians for the free nightly sunset celebration. Just before the sun dips into the Gulf of Mexico, pay one dollar to walk out to the very end of the 1,250-foot long pier for a picture-perfect sunset.

The trolley also stops near Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter and Hope, the Dolphins of "Dolphin Tale" movie fame. The research aquarium has an ever-changing guest list of otters, turtles, dolphins and stingrays that they rescue and rehabilitate. Aquarium staff also manages the sea turtle nests at nearby Sand Key State Park, a 95-acre park and beach that overlooks Clearwater Pass.

On the eastern side of Sand Key, the Clearwater Community Sailing Center offers instruction programs as well as kayak and catamaran rentals.

A bit farther south on the trolley route is Madeira Beach's popular John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, featuring more than 130 shops, restaurants and attractions. Families will find water activities for all ages, from WaveRunner rentals and parasailing lessons for older kids to the dolphin sightseeing cruises on The Pirate Ship at John's Pass.

St. Pete Beach & Pass-a-Grille to the South:

The four miles of white, sandy beaches aren't the only reason to ring the trolley bell in St. Pete Beach, voted TripAdvisor's No. 1 Beach in America for 2012. Historic Corey Avenue is the place to get your shopping fix. You'll find art galleries, restaurants, gift stores and swimwear outlets and the historic Beach Theatre.

Almost every week there is some sort of craft or art fair or parade happening along Corey Avenue, including winter wine tastings and gallery walks, sidewalk sales and the popular juried art show held every February.

A "must see" at the southern end of St. Pete Beach is the Loews Don CeSar Hotel. The opulent pink palace, as the building is known to locals, opened in 1928 after being built for $1.25 million. The eight-story building didn't fare well during the Great Depression and eventually became a military hospital and then was vacated for many years before reopening in 1973.

At the southern end of the trolley line is the beach town of Pass-a-Grille, which is a National Historic District. The town is rumored to have earned its name from Cuban fishermen who camped along the water smoking their fish on grills. Traveling by the pass, fishermen could see the fires and took to calling the spot Pass-a-Grille.

In Pass-a-Grille's Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, you can explore the county's barrier islands' past. The museum itself is a piece of history. It was the first church constructed on one of the barrier islands. Exhibits display artifacts from the 16th century to present day.

Finally, don't forget to check out the quaint shops and restaurants along Eighth Avenue, the town's main shopping district before making a return trip north on the trolley.

About Evan and Jeannie Farr

Evan is a Certified Elder Law Attorney in the DC Metro area and Jeannie runs their law firm. Oceanway is our home away from home and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you! We first purchased Unit 202 in October 2016, and we loved the property so much that we purchase Units 203 and 306 in 2017! We manage all three properties ourselves so you will never have to deal with the annoyance of working through a property management company.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have rented this condo for six years for the month of February. Very family friendly within walking distance of grocery stores and restaurants. It has a heated pool and hot tub and is ideal for walking and biking. I would recommend this condo for all ages and is the best location in this entire area.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing place to enjoy some quality beach time. The pool and hot tub are also very nice. I have been renting this same condo for about 8 years. The condo is nicely decorated and very comfortable beds. Very chill atmosphere. I will be planning my return trip for 2019. Oceanway is the BEST! Kudos to the owners of my unit. Well done.

It was perfect! The condo was beautiful and well taken care of!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we walked in the condo we were in love! It smelled so fresh and clean. Who ever does their cleaning needs a raise because they did an amazing job! I dropped something under the bed and when I bent down to pick it up there was no dust, dirt, wrappers or anything for that matter under the bed which really impressed me. The entire condo was spotless! The only thing we needed was food which some food was left there from previous Guest that was still good to use along with seasoning, oils, pots and pans and all the dishes you need. We didn't have to worry about washing dishes because they had a dishwasher and the tablets to go in the dishwasher, along with laundry detergent. They have quite a few local restaurants which we tried and enjoyed. There's a lot to do in just a short drive to either Clearwater or Johns Pass if you want to go shopping or check out different restaurants. I would definitely go back and I highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a perfect beach vacation! I hope to go back next year!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far our best vacation. Indian Rocks Beach is a beautiful place and this condo was nothing less than perfect!!!

The owners were a pleasure to deal with, starting before we even booked. They answered every question/concern we had before planning all the way through our stay.

The condo is equipped with everything you need, beach chairs, beach towels, hygiene needs, cooking needs (even condiments and seasonings), big tvs, VERY comfortable beds, VERY comfortable fold out couch.

We actually saw some dolphins while swimming in the ocean!

There was a very small issue with the AC while we were there but the owners encouraged us to grab some fans and reimbursed us for the amount plus additional for the inconvenience. (they were going to send maintenance also but we didn't have any other issues with AC at all) We didn't have any other issues while staying! (and that wasn't really even an issue)

Condo is right on the beach with heated pool and hot tub.

Walking distance to many places! The description and pictures don't do this condo justice. We can't wait to come back!!

Very "homey" place to stay!

My husband and I absolutely loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a great location in Indian Rocks Beach. You walk right out the pool gate and you are at the beach. I am a swimmer. The pool allowed me to swim nice little laps - I felt like I got a good workout. The ocean water was warm so I swam every day in the ocean as well. Also, you can walk along the beach forever in both directions. I walked to 3 different restaurants during my week stay: TJs, Guppy's and Keegan's. All different, and all served great food and drinks. Plus, I walked to the Indian Rocks Beach Art Center - lovely little place that sells artwork from local residents. You can also walk to a Nekton Surf shop. They sell fabulous Indian Rocks Beach t-shirts. The beds in the house are some of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in while renting a vacation home. Actually this is one of the reasons I chose this home. And the sofa bed mattress in the living room IS just like a real mattress on a bed. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need. I spent some peaceful time on the long patio right off of the living room just sitting and reading. There was a small glitch with the air conditioning while we were there, but the owners were extremely responsive in getting it resolved as quickly as possible. I so appreciated their care and concern. I definitely want to stay at this home again when I come back to Indian Rocks Beach!
