Guestbook comments from the owner

So many of our guests write comments in our Guest Book which we always appreciate reading. Some of the comments on their vacation experience are shared here.

.

January: “Thanks for our stay at your condo. Had some wonderful pool and beach days. This is such a wonderful location. We enjoyed watching the water and wildlife, very relaxing and a beautiful view. The condo is very roomy and has a good layout. We will definitely think about coming again



Apr: “Thank you so much. We had a terrific week and took in all the places suggested. We loved the views inside and out. The beach was terrific. You have a wonderful place here and would love to come back.”



Apr: “Loved staying at your condo. The view is fabulous – both from inside and outside on the balcony. Enjoyed our walks on the beach just across the road from the condo. Had a wonderful time and will return. The condo is spacious, peaceful and has everything a person would want.”



May: “We had a great time staying in your comdo. Lots of room to spread out and our girls loved having double beds to themselves. We fished from the pier and caught snapper, perch and fished the surf on the beach. Hate to leave but hope we will come back.”



July “We were here for a baseball tournament and enjoyed the pool after games in the hot sun. Caught quite a few fish from the dock, none were big but it was fun. Enjoyed seeing the different birds. Didn't see dolphins but lucky enough to see a manatee. Had a great time hopefully we can make it back in future.”



Aug: “Thank you so much! Our son and nephew had a blast fishing off the dock. We saw dolphins but no manatee this trip. Had lots of great meals grilled here at the condo and at the restaurants around. An absolutely amazing trip! Will definitely be back and hoping to rent your place again.



Sept. “Back for the 3rd time. We never tire of this lovely place. Long journey from UK but well worth it. Saw 2 manatees on our first day which made the holiday and dolphins nearly every day! Ate out mostly at the restaurant closeby so easy to walk to. We made good use of the inflatable floats and hope they're still here next time. Indian Shores is our favourite place and the best beach we've ever been on. Hope someday we can stay for a month, 3 weeks isn't long enough!

Beautiful condo w/beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Indian Sands. The property was exactly as advertised, and the distance from beach as was stated at approximately 3 minute walk. Property had every amenity that was needed, and we so appreciated the beach chairs/umbrellas/water boards, etc. We were able to enjoy watching dolphins swim past several times as they were feeding. Property is located in a place that made it easy to get to area attractions. Sharon and Ed were very easy to work with during booking process...We would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you!!

Perfect location, but condo need upgrade

  • 3 of 5

Indian Shores is perfect place to stay, beautiful and clean beach just around the corner, many good restaurants and entertainment for kids. I have only a few concerns when it comes to condo conditions. Would be great if there will be a few new pots and pans, tiles in kitchen are falling apart, also some doors are either hard to close or you can't close it at all. Please make some upgrade to make this place more convenient.

Thank you

Edyta, Paul, Matt and Barbara

Owner's Response: Glad this family found the location a perfect place to stay noting a beautiful clean beach just a short walk away, and all the many restaurants and activities nearby. Though not communicated with us during their stay, pots and pans can become worn and are replaced, and though some doors sticking or hard to close has not been mentioned before will be looked into as we do want our guests to have an enjoyable vacation experience. .

Fourth Time Back!

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth time back and feels like our second home now. We love the view and watching all the birds, dolphins and wildlife. We saw the otters again this year, and a manatee surfaced and then disappeared before we could grab the camera.

We ate at the usual places, The Pub, Crabby's, JD's all of which serve good food. We used the local beach trolley for the first week $25 for a weeks pass, went to John's Pass for good restaurants and a bit of shopping.

Sharon and Ed were kind enough to let us use the boat dock for our friends (Sue & Andy) wedding. We decorated it up with ribbons, flowers, balloons and it looked lovely. The service was at 6pm and it was so romantic, just a perfect setting for a wedding. Then over the road to the beach for photos in the sunset. Just wonderful, a wedding never to forget.

We love this place and hope to be back very soon.

Thanks Sharon and Ed for making everything just perfect.

Love Jayne and George, Sue and Andy

The property had great views over the bay and ideal For a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

With excellent views over the bay and only 2mins walk from the beach to watch the sunrise or set this is a ideal place to come and chill.Enjoyed fishing from the bay and watching the dolphins and boats passing

The accommodation was spaces and with fishing rods, sun chairs and lots of extras to take to the beach.

Local shop 5 mins walk and we used the pub bar and restaurant at night when we were not chilling on the dock or rustling up food on the

BBQ on the balcony

Ideal bus service outside for $5 a day pass

Takes you up and down the boulevard, recommend Madeira beach for great entertainment

Overall loved it

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

The view was truly great. We preferred it to a beach view and the beach was right across the street anyway. We saw dolphins, jumping mullet, herons, kingfishers and more. The condo was clean and beautiful. Ed and Sharon were helpful at every turn.
