Quaint Little Spot
We really did enjoy our time at the condo. Ed and Sharron were very easy to deal with in renting and any questions we had leading up to our stay. The condo is located in a quiet place in Indian Shores, but is with in walking distance of places to eat and shops. There was plenty of information for where to go in the area. Feed back on some of the other reviews. The sliding glass door seal is broken but we had the door open a lot and sat on the deck for meals and drinks almost the entire time we were there so it didn't bother us. The neighbors in the complex are very friendly and the beach area right outside is fun to walk on in the morning. (I wouldn't swim there ;) The dock was great in the evening to have dinner on, and there was a lot of bird watching available. It was fun to watch the boats come through the water. The walk to the beach is short and the beach was basically private. We walked over for a few sunsets and swam there often. The covered parking was great. The condo itself has some fixing up to do, but we were on vacation so it really didn't bother us. The only suggestions I would have would be to have better beach chairs and umbrella. Also a better cooler for guests to use at the beach and better beach towels. Other than that we loved staying there and gave the listing to family members that vacation in Florida. Even if they didn't take our suggestions I would have no hesitation in renting it again. Great condo!

The condo was bright clean and spacious, had everything we needed with great views of the waterway which we really enjoyed. The location was perfect with a choice between enjoying the waterfront area, fishing dock and pool along with the beach just right across the road only minutes away. There lots of shops, restaurants and things to do in the area and also just being able to walk to the popular Pub waterfront restaurant and not have to drive was an added bonus. We definitely want to return again for another vacation.

Rooms a a view!!!! Oh what a view :)
Stayed with my kids and sis-in law:) Great space soooo close to the beach. Loved my morning coffees overlooking the intercoastal while my kids slept in. Afternoons at the Beach or the private pool were fantastic. The restaurants, the location just perfect. Had a blast...was great to be able to cook our own meals and do our own laundry on the quiet evenings. All major shopping is close and so convenient with many choices. We would absolutely book another stay. Thanks so much it was great to get away. N M and A
Love the view and location but....
...the unit needs repairs. Tile chipped in kitchen, foyer, and bath. A hazard for bare feet. Beds are very basic. Not good foundation, no headboards, cheap sheets, on a $20. Metal bed frame. Patio door doesn’t lock. Other windows may fall out IF you can open them. The exterior steps have torn, loose carpet —another potential hazard. WiFi very weak, must be within 20 ft to get access. Too bad— Could be a premium place with a few thousand in repairs.
Compared to our other reviews this one is very opposite and disappointing to read.. Reviews may not always be the same but would comment that replacement of ceramic tiling is being planned and while beds may not have a headboard they are all upgraded matched sets which have not been commented on before So many families who have stayed before, do keep returning again and again having enjoyed our waterfront location and views, the fishing dock, ,heated pool, with just a 3 minute walk across to the beach and numerous restaurants and shops nearby. It's also recognized that what others may enjoy the most and look for in a vacation can vary but having feedback is always important to us and comments are noted.
The unit was tired and needs cleaning and updating
Dirty upholstery; cracked tiles; the sliding door - which should have a great view, was frosted over because of a broken seal; towels and face cloths were like rags; and we had to wait until 4:45pm to check in, as the unit was being cleaned.
Our Spring Vacation
We enjoyed your condo very much, but the weather didn't want to cooperate and it was very cool this year. The location is very convenient it's close tho the restaurants and grocery store.
The view of the canal is very nice.
Thank You, Larry & Fannie
