Beautiful Gulf Front Condo - Spectacular Views

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This non-smoking unit is in a superb beachfront location and with two living rooms as well as two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two balconies and is ideal for larger families or two families sharing and wanting their own 'space'. There are just 15 units in the building and each one is accessed via a card-operated lift that takes you directly into the lobby outside your own condo. Furnished and equipped with style, the balcony overlooking the beach and the gulf is accessed via patio doors from living room one and the master bedroom. This is the perfect place to enjoy those wonderful sunsets and just watch life on this quiet unspoiled beach go by. There are stairs from this balcony down to the pool and the beach below, so you don't even need to take the lift!

The other balcony overlooking the intercoastal waters is accessed by the second living room and is a great spot to watch the sun come up in the mornings. The second bedroom also has views from the large windows over these waters. Most days, if you close the screens and leave the patio doors open on both balconies, a beautiful cool breeze wafts through the apartment - in fact, much of the time the air-conditioning is not even needed!

As well as a large flat-screen television and DVD in the main living room, there is a second TV and DVD in the second living room, and televisions in both bedrooms. There is also an iPod dock to enjoy your favorite music, Wi-Fi and a laptop table/chair to surf in comfort. There is a selection of books and board games for when you want to get out of the sunshine, and there's a crib and baby chair as well as some pool toys for the kids.

The master en-suite bathroom has a newly fitted shower door, and a large vanity unit with cupboards under where the new hairdryer is stored. The second bathroom has a tub as well as a shower.

Outside, there is a kidney-shaped pool and plenty of sun beds on the deck. There is a gate directly on to the beach which is unspoiled and generally a quiet place to relax, walk or go shelling. Allocated parking is undercover, and a number of good restaurants - from diners to fine dining - are all within a few minutes drive/walk of the condo.

We love our place on the beach - and we're sure you will too.

About Viv Young

We love to stay in the unit whenever we can, it's so very relaxing. I am a writer and this is the perfect place for me to catch up with my writing, while my husband loves to watch the seabirds and dolphins. We've seen eagles, osprey, buzzards and numerous other birds whilst just relaxing on the balcony, or walking on the quiet beach.

Viv Young purchased this condo in 2008

Why Viv Young chose Florida Central West

We love this part of Florida and were looking for a property that took full advantage of both the intercoastal waterways and the beach. With a balcony overlooking both, we knew we had found our dream place when we stumbled on WEST COAST VISTA!

What makes this condo unique

We like to think that our unit is perfect not only for holidays, but is furnished to suit those looking for a longer term rental that feels like home. It is well equipped if you like to cook and eat indoors, but is just minutes away from the wonderful restaurants and diners nearby.

July on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 3 weeks in July here for the past 6 years (and plan to continue this annual holiday in the future). Viv is wonderful to work with. The condo is amazing, it has everything you need. If we can pry ourselves away from the water, our favorite restaurants are Columbia, Salt Rock Grill and Carabbas ! We can't wait for July 2017.

July on the Beach !

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 3 weeks in July here for the past 6 years (and plan to continue this annual holiday in the future). Viv is wonderful to work with. The condo is amazing, it has everything you need. Having 2 living spaces makes it very comfortable when travelling with friends and family. The beach in our opinion is the best in Florida. If we can pry ourselves away from the water, our favorite restaurants are Columbia, Salt Rock Grill and Carabbas ! We can't wait for July 2017.

Spent Februarys here for several years!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have spent every February here for the last several years. The unit is extremely comfortable, feels like our second home. The kitchen is really well equipped. All appliances, small and large are supplied. Beach towels, toys, etc are provided. It is a great layout for up to six people (our daughter, son in law and two grandkids come for one week each year). The condo building is the perfect size, with a wonderful pool, and ideal beach location. The owner has always been very responsive to any requests. We'd continue coming forever if we could!

Happy Vacationer

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year in this unit. Love it! Took our granddaughter to Busch Gardens, which is only a 45 minute drive, and had a wonderful time. Loads of good restaurants and shopping in the area. A must place to visit is John's Pass Village and Boardwalk at Madeira Beach.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful place.

Rocky Start, Beautiful Finish!

  • 4 of 5

I posted a review upon our arrival to the condo last week. We were very disappointed, the condo was not ready for new guests. It had not been cleaned, and we were unable to contact the owners for resolution. We know now it was an anomaly. Something happened that should't have and I understand that measures were and are being made to resolve that from happening again in the future. However, it did not change our first impression nor the fact that we had to do the laundry, clean the bathrooms, sweep, mop and vacuum and basically lose our first evening here. What changed our impression was how the owners addressed the issue and our concerns. The next day while we were out, cleaners came in and polished this place wonderfully and even re-cleaned the bathrooms, and linens. Additionally, the owners refunded us some money and reserved a nice dinner for us at the nicest restaurant on the beach!

The Condo is really nice, not the newest nor the finest but is was just right for what we were looking for; is exactly as described and was in our price range. It has some pool chairs, and floats, books, wifi, tvs in every room, wonderful balcony's to enjoy sunrises and sunsets. everything works, is plenty spacious, a very private beach. We plan to return next year again. Please do not let our rocky start impede your consideration of this great condo at Indian Rocks. you will not be disappointed. Our rating for day one was Poor, but 6-7 were EXCELLENT!!

arrived to unclean condo

  • 1 of 5

We are sitting in the condo 2 1/2 hours after arriving. Keys were not in the box. Used spare key to get in via stairs. All the dirty linens are in the floor. No one has been here to clean. No extra linens and no way to contact owners. Have emailed 3 times with no response. No contact information for the cleaning people. . Extremely disappointed. Extremely! Hopefully this review will wake them in England.

Owner's Response: There was a very unfortunate mix-up with the cleaning of the unit, which we addressed immediately we were aware there was a problem. We also immediately remunerated the guests for any inconvenience, and paid for them to enjoy a complimentary dinner at a nearby restaurant of their choice. As these guests have now confirmed they are enjoying their vacation in the condo very much, we have also offered a special reduced rate if they choose to return next year, which they have indicted they may well take us up on. We were dismayed that such a thing happened but went out of our way to resolve the problem and ensure our guests were able to enjoy their vacation.

There are numerous restaurants, bars and ice cream/coffee shops within a short walk of the condo. Also a CVS selling day to day provisions, beach products and everything else you'd expect from this chain. A Publix store is about 1-2 miles away.
