About Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez
As a family of five, Charlotte and I have vacationed in Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, South America - etc. and all great wonderful vacation locations. However our best - stress free and quality vacations have been at the Gulf Beaches of Florida. The location is always ideal for weather, activities, friends and family . . . and we don't feel like we had to out of the country to vacation - we didn't! Great location and easy to get to and so much to do. Pro sports teams in Tampa, Busch Gardens, Gulf beauty and of course we would always go to Orlando and enjoy everything Orlando has to offer - from Disney, to Sea World to the Orlando Magic. This is simply a great location and this condo is beachfront - penthouse - 30 minutes from Tampa airport . . . what more can you say. Getting here is easy for Western Hemisphere and European vacationers and you can start your vacation right away. We have enjoyed this area immensely.
Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez chose Indian Rocks Beach
Beachfront location top floor ocean view penthouse 40 minutes from Tampa International with Tampa/Orlando at your fingertips. Great people during our stays. We like the people we have met. Great location to fly to - great location to drive to - and great location to center your vacation from. This condo has three bedrooms and is designed to sleep maximum of 8 people. In the living room there is also a very nice new leather couch with a comfortable queen sleeper sofa. Two HDTVs including 42' Panasonic Plasma in Living Room and 37' Insignia HD in Master Bedroom. Flat TV & DVD in second bedroom. High Speed wireless Internet. Restaurants and places: Best ice cream in the world! Candy Kitchen - they make their own - go there. They have the same ice cream at 'Candy Kitchen' (one block north of Reef Club . . . just the portions are not as large :). Salt Rock Grill - atmosphere! Great value - surf & turf - more . . . go before 5:00 for extraordinary prices! Crabby Bill's - Seafood - always happening. THE Pub - down the street. Dine at the outside bar evenings and watch the Intracoastal. TJ's Italian Pizza, Picata and Sea Bass. Maggie Mae's Sunrise Cafe - in Sand Key for great breakfasts. Try the bagel Tuna for lunch at Lighthouse Doughnuts - and of course the donuts and breakfasts are great! Our Canadian friends say 'We had their bagel sandwiches and they were better than the Canadian ones! All the above located within walking distance on Gulf Boulevard.
What makes this Condo unique
There is a lot. Penthouse beachfront, sunset while watching seagulls coast by, hot tub, pool, volleyball, gas grills - bike rides on the beach. Don't laugh - but the thing that did it for me was watching the sun set from the top floor balcony while enjoying an excellent carbernet and a McDonald's double cheeseburger. (It had been a long day). TJ's is 3 minutes north and excellent. Crabby Bills a 5 minute walk away - and great places to eat. Resting with the ocean breeze . . . Don't need a car - extended stay convenience: Great feature - you can take a shuttle from the Tampa Airport to Indian Rocks Beach - about $28 (727) 572 1111. Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price! Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your security code. AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long. Again, great shuttle to the airport and great trolley on the beach.

This is our second stay in this condo and again we loved it and had a great time. I am certain we will be back to this condo again or maybe one of his other properties. We had great weather all week as well! Rick is very quick to respond if any issues come up. Thank you again for the pleasure of spending a week in your beautiful condo.
Great vacation rental.
The Reef 509 was just as described.! Beautiful unit in a great location. Elevator never busy. Pool spotless. Water very warm. Family friendly.100 percent oceanfront.
Condo 509 at reef club was a very beautiful clean condo to stay at Indian Rocks Beach. It was perfect for our family. We definitely recommend this unit and the owner was definitely a great help and communicated well with us.
Our home away from home.
We have been going to Rick and Charlotte’s condo for a number of years. Their condo is always updated, clean and family friendly. We love our stay and hope to return for many years to come. We can’t say enough about the condo and location. Thank you again for more memories.
Thank you Jennifer and Luis - and I now update Charlotte when you come and we greatly appreciate it. Going on many years now which is making for many memories. We also can't wait to get back to our condo. Best to everybody and thank you for the review. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte
Great family vacation!
Condo is conveniently located next to shops and restaurants. You’re just steps away from a beautiful beach/ocean!
Thank you Jessica and for mentioning to closeness to the shops and restaurants. We take that for granted and Indian Rocks Beach is know for that. We sometimes take it for granted that we are looking right out at the ocean/beach and its closeness from the top floor. Please check with us again. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte
Unit 509 Rental
We rented this unit for a 60th birthday celebration. We had family members in other units; this unit was by far a more updated unit. The furniture, Tommy Bahama, was elegant. We had 6 adults in our party and with 7 others in it the unit was still a comfortable atmosphere.
The patio offers gorgeous top floor views and sunsets are photographic. The pool and other amenities were spot on for entertaining and interaction with other residents was comfortable.
I would recommend this unit and 508, and 510. This owner takes pride in his properties and it shows.
Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your unit.
