Guestbook comments from the owner

Only two of us in condo but big enough for a family with everything you need for a beach holiday. The kitchen was well equipped for those wishing to eat in. Beach chairs, boogie boards and play equipment for the little ones all available. It was nice to sit on the balcony which was shaded most of the day with a cool breeze. Ideal for families with children using the pool all day long. Although the pool closes at dusk this rule was generally ignored so be warned it can get a little noisy until midnight. The location itself was quiet but only 1.5 miles to Public and 5 miles to Johns Pass

Great Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic. It's a great setup, with a patio overlooking the pool, hot tub, grills, and beach; it's extremely convenient with everything right there. The condo was clean and the description very accurate. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Great weather, great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location, the layout of the property and the parking was great, Beautiful view from the balcony. The property could have been cleaner upon arrival and the furniture needed cleaning. Probably would return.

They Have Everything You'll Need

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with my parents and we all enjoyed the condo. The view from the balcony is the highlight of the condo! The kitchen is fully stocked with appropriate dishes, appliances and supplies. The condo has everything you would want or need for a beach vacation.

The cleaning staff does a great job! We like to sanitize a rental when we first arrive. To our pleasant surprise the cleaning cloths remained white! There is an odor, but it's not due to uncleanness. We did not determine the source, however after cleaning and spraying it returned. That was a small issue. We thoroughly enjoyed the condo and our vacation ended too soon!

Awesome time in and around the condo of Rick Houser at Beach Cottages I on Indian Shores!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at Beach Cottages I on Indian Shores. Rick and Randy Houser's condo was clean and the beds were comfy. It was nice that they had beach chairs, boogie board, and sand toys there for us as guests to use. The view from the balcony is great to watch the ocean and see beautiful sunsets. Plus, it also overlooks the lovely pool area. It is in a great location to take a short drive up or down to visit the other nearby beaches, restaurants, and shops. It is also not that far from Tampa area if you desired to hit some bigger attatractions. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. My only few recommendations for improvements would be to invest in a new lock for the unit; that one can get kind of stiff and tricky at times and not seem too secure. However, the need for keys to enter the building, pool, and beach access was nice as far as security goes. Also, the thermostat was a little finicky. But these are nit picky things. As I stated before, we loved the condo unit, building, and area. Mr. Rick Houser provided good customer service in answering any messages from me promptly, sending kind and friendly messages regarding our trip, checking on us since hurricane Matthew was causing some problems for Florida, and having Florida Lifestyles with 24 hour help line tending to his property. The one day that was cloudy and really breezy from the downward residual of Hurricane Matthew, we just took the 40 minute drive over to Tampa to visit the Florida Aquarium and enjoyed it. As for restaurants, Crabby Bill's in Indian Rocks Beach, Conch Republic in North Redington Beach, and the Brown Boxer in Madeira Beach were heavy favorites with my family. John's Pass was also a wonderful area for shopping, restaurants, and boating activities. Thank you for providing a great condo to stay in during our trip!

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to unwind. We immediately go straight to the balcony to take in the view of the ocean and listen to the waves roll in. Relaxing is what this place offers you. Plenty of space, beach chairs & toys too. The kitchen has everything needed & beds are comfy. Highly recommend it.
