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!

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.

Amazing condo, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We've vacationed on the gulf coast over the years, this was our first in the Indian Shores area and we were not disappointed. The condo was amazing, it was beautifully decorated, beautiful beach, awesome view of the ocean, great pool area. We really felt at home as everything you needed was provided. The on site staff was friendly and helpful. We definitely will be return guests. As the back of the staff's shirts say, "they overlook nothing but the gulf".

A comfortable, spacious condo that the whole family thoroughly enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family (2 adults and 4 teenagers) loved staying in this condo. It was clean, tidy, quiet, and very spacious. We had a truly memorable vacation due largely to where we stayed. The condo was very well organized. There were helpful directions on how to get set up with Wifi and how to empty the lint from the dryer. Dishwasher pods, laundry soap, shower soap bars, toilet paper, beach towels, and beach toys were all provided. Two bedrooms each had their own walk-in closet, and the third bedroom had a large, regular closet. The view from the balcony was amazing. The water was warm and the sand was very white. Lots of little seashells were collected and they were all in mint condition! The pool was a good size too. The kids loved all of it. The whole family felt at home and relaxed comfortably. A big thank you to the owners!
