Everything we needed and more

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I rented this lovely condo and were more than pleasantly surprised. We've rented many places, but none have had more of the necessities than this unit, everything from beach chairs to pool noodles and tissues to soap. We didn't need to make a mad dash to the grocery store as soon as we got there.

The condo was very clean and comfortable with everything working properly.

And I can't say enough about the location! We were just across the street from the Gulf and the beach was wonderful. The pool was very tidy as were the grounds of Barefoot Beach. Denise left us a list of restaurants, events and "must sees" that was very helpful. Don't miss making dinner reservations at Salt Rock, just a two minute walk. The food was fabulous. We will definitely come back again.

The Condo was great. Well decorated and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this great property. The view was awesome and the location was spectacular. We could not have found a nicer place to spend February and March. The Owners were attentive and the neighbors were friendly. Beach accros the street and pool in the back of the complex. The best of both worlds.

Great location to beach. Clean and well cared for.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, nicely decorated and very quiet even with the street right out front. Stocked with many things needed. Toaster, blender, towels etc. We appreciated the use of the beach chairs. Since we flew and only there for a few days it would have been nice to have some items there like paper plates and solo cups available. We had an awesome time and would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed all the extras we provided. With brand new dishes and glasses, we never felt the need to supply paper products..will give some thought in the future.

Beautiful condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

Pleasant, nicely appointed condo in an excellent location. Nice sun room in front with a great view of the Gulf, the beach and amazing sunsets. Close to great restaurants, stores, parks, etc. Very quiet complex with excellent pool facilities. There are laundry facilities in the same building as this unit. Perfect for two people and there is a sofa bed that could provide sleeping for two more. Having only one bathroom would make it difficult to accommodate more than two. This is a delightful place that we highly recommend. We would definitely rent it again.

Dear Devore Family,

Thank you for the incredible stay at your beautiful condo. We had such a great time with our family and made wonderful, happy memories with our children that we will cherish forever. I loved that you provided sand toys for the children, as well as an umbrella and chairs for the adults. Everything was clean, functional, and care-free. Also, special thanks to Rachel K-L. for the recommendation. This property was just a dream come true! We are looking forward to visiting Devore's Cottage again someday! Thank you!

Helpful Info. For Guests:

*The Devore's have a great list of restaurants and places to go and visit during your stay that is kept in a binder at the Condo. Salt Rock Grille is a MUST! Yes, even a 5 and 7 year old are welcome there! Bruce and Denise help make this trip very enjoyable.

*Pack a collapsible cooler in your bags! It was great to have an ice-cold beverage on the beach. You won't regret it.

*Pack a few beach towels for your use. All linens at the condo must not be removed from the condo.

*Don't forget your own toiletries, dish tabs, and laundry detergent. We were condo newbies, so this may be old news to you if you're used to this style of vacationing :)

*The grocery store is literally 5 minutes from the condo. Don't hesitate if you forget or need something.

Lovely Condo Across from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I go away once a year for our annual beach weekend (no guys, no kids; just us girls, fun, and sun). It's a tradition my mother and her best friends have passed on to us (only they go twice a year). Usually we go to the east coast, but this year, some of the girls have little ones, so we wanted to stay a little closer to home. Luckily, we found Denise's condo in Indian Shores, and it was just what we needed.

The condo was clean and neat and very close to the beach access. The couches have pullout beds (not the most comfy, but they never are) and the kitchen had almost all the the hardware we needed for cooking meals. We didn't spend too much time in the condo itself though. The pool on property was very nice and not crowded but the best part was the beach access. We loved that it was so close. Plus you can see the sunset from the condo, if you wanted to be inside instead of watching the sunset right on the beach (no judgement). All in all, the condo was clean, affordable, and close to the beach. Just what we needed.

Denise was incredibly accommodating and helpful. We had a death in my family a week prior to our original reservation date and the date of the services conflicted to that date. I called Denise and she was more than willing to work with us to find a way to make the weekend a success. Luckily, the next date all six of us girls were available, they weren't booked in the unit we had originally reserved. We were able to reschedule with ease and it took a lot of stress off from an otherwise emotional and stressful weekend.

Thanks again Denise! It was a pleasure!
