Amazing unit in a lovely complex

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this unit, and we hope to stay here again next year. The condo is comfortably furnished with everything anyone could need. The beds are comfortable, and the kitchen has every tool imaginable. The balcony overlooks the beach and the pool, and there are no roads to cross to get to the ocean. Our kids (14, 12, and 3) enjoyed every minute, and our 3-year-old cried for a week after we got home because he wanted to live in "our room at the beach". The ladies in the office are very helpful and welcoming. I can't think of a single negative comment to make.

Amazing condo, amazing beach, amazing lication!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Massa's beautiful condo for the second year in a row and we have already booked our stay for 2018. For us, it feels just like home the moment we step inside. The beds are super comfortable, the appliances are all new, the decor is modern, the tile work is beautiful, the furniture is comfortable and looks amazing. We extended our stay a week and were too late to get booked in the Massa's condo for our last week. The new condo was nice, but was NOT up to the standards of the Massa's condo. We are now spoiled and will only stay in their place. The office staff is super friendly and helpful. The location of the condo to the beach is perfect! My parents have a hard time getting around, but because the beach and ocean are so close, they can get out to enjoy it with us. Karen is just amazing! She answers all emails within minutes. We truly wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you Karen for letting us enjoy your beautiful, amazing, gorgeous home!! Marc and Jenn Chard and family.

Sand Dollar Condo on Indian Shores

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! This is our first family vacation in Florida, and we found a gem of a vacation "home." The owners are great people to work with as they are friendly and communicate on a timely basis, which is very important for us trying to secure a place to stay.

We drove 18 hours to get to our vacation "home", and it was a very welcomed sight as soon as we walked in...even my son expressed complimentary comments on how nice it is. Everything is super clean, and many extra things such as fishing poles and beach chairs were awesome to have. My wife loved the kitchen area- that's important :-) The couches and beds were very comfortable as well. The gym membership was an extra bonus; we loved that! Last, but not least, the balcony view is spectacular!

Indian Shore is a very nice and fun place to be, and we spent most of our time here. Our "home" is steps away from the sand, so it was very easy to get in and out. The kids also enjoyed the pool and hot tub too. Another great thing about our "home" is that we can hop on a bus/trolley and go to other fun places such as Clearwater Beach and John's Pass for a very low cost - both recommended.

The Sand Dollar Staff of Barb, Annette, TC and Holly - "BATCH" for an easy way to remember :-), were very nice to work with. One of the maintenance man's name is Jim is very nice too. He served in the military - bravo to him!

I strongly recommend this unit for any family; it comfortably sleeps six, but can be eight if the kids are younger/smaller. The only thing that will keep us from coming back is the long drive back and forth. We are planning on flying down the next time though :-)

We just had an amazing week at this condo! We highly recommend it. It is right on the beach & the views from the living room, kitchen, and master are breathtaking. The unit is tastefully decorated, well-stocked, and spacious & comfortable for our family of six. Pool, hot tub, grills, and ground are very well maintained. Management staff is polite & helpful. All the beachfront towns between Clearwater & st Pete are nice but we think Indian shores is the prettiest. And since it is centrally located, it's a quick drive to check out the others. Lots to do but we found it hard to leave the soft white sand & blue water right out the door! Many great restaurants a quick drive away but our favorite was cooking/grilling at the condo and dining at sunset from the balcony. Beautiful! Don't pass on this condo!

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 6 glorious weeks this year. The weather was absolutely terrific. Not one bad day. The beach at Indian Shores is beautiful. We woke up every morning looking at the ocean from the deck of the condo and watched the sun set every evening ....it's an amazing view! The inside of this condo is like home. The owners have furnished it with comfortable furniture and supply everything you need for a terrific vacation......beach chairs and sand toys included! The owners are very nice and easy to work with. We love it here and will be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

We vacation at the beach every year. We needed a three bedroom this year because our grown children were able to stay with us. This was by far the most beautiful, spacious, clean and well equipped condo......we absolutely loved it. It was within walking distance of restaurants and a convenience store. The office people were wonderful and the view spectacular. We have recommended it to other family members and would definitely rent this again.
