Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Our family has moved to Florida 24 years ago. Before purchasing this unit, we scoped most beaches from the east to the west coast of Florida. When we found Indian Rocks Beach and walked into this unit, we knew we found our dream home away from home. The views to the turquoise gulf, the sugary white sand, the building itself; had everything we wanted and more. The best part of this location is the versatility -- it is private enough to just "hide away" and enjoy beach living at it's best, or explore some of Florida's main attractions. This location has it all.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
We have a large family with eight children. At the time of purchase the oldest was 14 and the youngest an infant. Another favorite feature about this condo is its proximity to everything. Literally, steps away from the gulf waters. You can see the kids building sand castles on the beach while sipping cocktails on the balcony. (age appropriate of course). Our children are now grown and still love the beach and theme parks, fishing, Disney and all the wonders of Orlando. Fishing from our private dock is another favorite of our younger teens. The list goes on......

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Some of the most popular benefits of this condo is it's size and location. The building itself is private with a total of 15 units. At full capacity, it is private and quiet. The sand is soft and white and the water is crystal clear. The condo is situated in the 'Narrows' which is surrounded by the gulf and the inter-coastal. The photos are very deceiving. Most people, upon arrival, express how happy they are with the size of the unit and the views. It is very roomy and split into two sections: the gulf side and the inter coastal side. Come and check it out soon.
