What makes this Condo unique
A luxurious beachfront condominium vacation destination on shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Conveniently located in beautiful Indian Rocks Beach, Florida, just minutes from either the St. Petersburg or Tampa airports. Our luxury condo is close to many of Florida's most famous attractions!
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
This place is great for a family. The condo is right on the beach. The pool and hot tub was great. It comfortably slept 4 adults and 2 children. My children loved waking up and going right out to the beach to search for shells. I loved that I could watch them from the balcony. The beach was never crowded and was a great place to relax. The place itself could use a deep clean, but overall was a great place to stay. I would recommend Slyce Pizza, Lulu's, Crabby Bill's, and Haze ice cream which are all within walking distance. My main disappoints were that you could not exchange your used towels for cleans ones without a huge price tag from the Management company (we stayed a week), so we had to go buy laundry soap and do a load of towels (just what I want to do on vacation). We also had to go buy paper towels and toilet paper as not enough was provided to last a family of 6 for one week.
Glad you loved our condo and beach. Fortunately we have a washer and dryer in the unit.
Clean Get Away
This condo was clean and had everything we needed. The only disappointment was not being able to take our dog on the beach. When I asked if I could bring my dog to the condo, I wish the owner would have told me about the rule if no dogs allowed on the beach. It was very disappointing.
Sorry, but the local ordinance does not permit dogs on the beach.
loved that beach was real close.beautiful view of beautiful sunsets and pet friendly
room for all 7 of us. can see kids in pool or beach. quiet beach
Great Location, Comfortable Stay
Indian Rocks Beach is the hidden gem of the Suncoast and this corner Gulf-front unit was the perfect retreat. What impressed: The kitchen was well stocked with pots, specialty utensils, blender and the like. What could be better: Towels and sheets were motel average. But to be fair, the king bed was comfortable. Overall: Highly recommended.
Wow, I love these reviews. Richard
The condo was very spacious, we really enjoyed the balcony. I think it needs a good spring cleaning and the kitchen could use new utinsels and dinnerware. We had no issues and really had a good time.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at our beautiful beachfront condo. I will personally take a look at the kitchen utensil situation when I stay there in a few weeks. Thanks for the input. Richard
Sand Castle II Served Our Needs Well
We wanted a good location, accessible to FL West Coast Spring Training games, and also a nice beach spot on the Gulf Coast. This Sand Castle II unit provided both.
Arrival and check-in was competently handled by the ladies at Plumly Real Estate, just up the road from Sand Castle. Their resources and amenities, including free bikes and movie DVD rentals, were a nice touch and added value to our stay.
The unit itself served our needs with comfortable furniture, TV's and appliances that worked, and, being a corner unit, a nice wraparound outdoor deck for morning coffee and evening sunset watching.
Beach access was easy. There are plenty of comfy beach chais lounges with canopies to rent - pay the $25 and they're yours for the day. If you like walking, the beach goes for miles north or south, with plenty of firm sand along with gulls, pelicans, herons, and other indigenous sea birds to photograph along the way.
Sand Castle II also provides good restaurant access. The Pub is right across the street, Crabby Bills is about a mile north, and there are plenty of options driving south. We especially enjoyed Johns Pass Village and Boardwalk in Madeira Beach. Try the Mad Beach Craft Brewing Company. Great brew and food - sit outside to avoid the noise!
A few quibbles: This unit is on the 3rd floor, very near the pool and hot tub. The latter is very popular all day and well into the evening. We could hear hot tub conversations clearly in the master bedroom. Nothing rowdy, but the noise did detract from an otherwise peaceful location. There are also no recycling bins or facilities in this building - everything has to go in the trash, apparently. Trained as we are to separate our bottles, cans, and paper, it wasn't easy being "green"! Finally, there was no ice in the icemaker when we arrived, so I had to go out and buy some to get us through. What's a condo on the beach without an icy evening cocktail?
Thanks to Richard for sharing this lovely location!
Glad you enjoyed our beautiful beachfront condo. Sorry about the lack of ice in the icemaker in the refrigerator. The cleaning staff always empties it so that the next guest gets fresh ice.
