About Ed Bates

Engineering geologist. Retired after 35 years of service with the US Environmental Protection Agency where I specialized in clean-up of hazardous waste sites. Veteran, Army Corps of Engineers. Vice President Sand Dollar Condominium Association. Reside in Cincinnati, Ohio along with 4 rescue dogs.

Ed Bates purchased this Condo in 2008

Why Ed Bates chose Pinellas County

I have travelled to many areas in Florida. This part of Florida between Clearwater Beach and St Petersburg Beach is the most beautiful and relaxing part of Florida, yet convenient to many facilities and attractions. The 15 miles of wide white sand beaches are fantastic and are suitable for swiming, walking, running, and even bicycles as the sand is firm near the tide line yet fluffy back from the tide.

What makes this Condo unique

Great breakfasts and sunsets on the balcony overlooking the beach and Gulf,great tropical garden on the beach with palms, tiki huts, hot tub, and pool all beachside. Great restraunts in the area and a family oriented condo atmosphere. Be sure to visit some of the great Florida State Parks in the area including Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island, Myakka River and Egmont Key, featuring trails,boat rides, kayaks,bird watching, and even alligators.

                                                              Thank you for your review. I take the comfort and enjoyment of my guests very seriously. My unit features 3 very large bedrooms along with a separate laundry room to add to the spacious feel and comfort of my guests.

                                                              Beautiful condo. Lovey location. Gracious and helpful host.

                                                              I took my wife and kids down to Indian Shores/Clearwater for an early Christmas present, and absolutely loved it. Ed, the owner, was exceptionally gracious and helpful, and he answered all our questions about the property. His condo was really pretty and nicely updated; the balcony overlooking the gulf was our favorite part. It’s fully stocked and has beach chairs, fishing poles, and a few beach toys, which ended up being perfect for our kids. It’s right next to the sea bird sanctuary and only about 15-20 minutes away from Clearwater Beach if you want to go see Winter the dolphin at the aquarium. We all had a wonderful, relaxing week. Awesome host. Wonderful condo. Beautiful location. Highly recommend it.

                                                              Absolutely fabulous condo

                                                              My family has stayed in six different places in the Indian Shores/Treasure Island area over the past few years for our annual Easter trip from Michigan, and this unit was by far the best we've experienced. Everything was tastefully decorated and we all mentioned how clean the unit was when we arrived. The grand kids found many toys for the beach, and there were chairs and umbrellas for us old folks. The pool and hot top were top-notch and well maintained, as was the grounds, parking lot, office etc. The fishing pier was also enjoyable. All employees were friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

                                                              Thank you for the great review of my condo. Assuring that my guests have a great experience is my top priority and I strive to provide a clean, comfortable and well appointed vacation home for my guests. I do not regard my condo as a rental property, but rather as my personal home away from home. I am truly delighted that you had a great time, and hope that you will become a regular return guest like many others.

                                                              Perfect!

                                                              The condo is beautiful as were the views and the weather! We saw dolphins every day and enjoyed walking on the beach. We appreciated the owner's flexibility, and how updated the accommodations are! Everything was clean and the management team was friendly and helpful. We had everything we needed and especially appreciated the beach cart. The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of room. We used the outdoor grill almost every day. If all goes well, we'll be back!

                                                              FABULOUS!!!

                                                              It was a girl's trip..6 of us. The unit was fabulous. We had no problems. Very comfortable, spacious, and everything we could have hoped for. We have been going on girls trips for 15 yrs and this is one of the nicest. There are 5 queen size beds. Ed..any chance we could have 10 people? We will definitely be back!!!

                                                              Thank you Lisa for your unsolicited review. I am delighted that you had a great time. I strive to furnish and maintain my condo as my second home, not just another rental property. I appreciate that my guests are committing their precious vacation time, and try my best to assure that they have a enjoyable experience. I find it very rewarding to hear that you had a great time look forward to your return. Regarding 10 occupants, I can not do that, as the rental rules limit my unit to not more than 8 occupants, adults plus children.

                                                              This was our 2nd time staying in room 407. This condo is so homey and comfortable. We brought all of our food with us, knowing that everything we needed to cook with was in the condo. Every morning I would get up, make coffee and sit out on the balcony to watch the Dolphins go by. We even saw 5 manatees swimming near shoreline, so amazing!! This is a perfect location, great views and everything you need at your finger tip!! I look forward to the next trip at this very beautiful condo.

I am delighted that you and Tim enjoyed your second stay with me and look forward to booking your return. It gives me great pleasure when many guests such as you choose to return and spend their precious vacation days at my condo. Ed B
