Great condo, great location.... elevators need work!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Indian Shores every spring for the last 7 years. This condo had everything we could possibly want/need in the kitchen! We loved that! It was so nice to come up from the beach and be able to cook so easily, just like being at home. It was clean, well maintained and amazing view of the beach. We absolutely loved our stay ❤️

Owner's Response: We are always glad to learn that a guest enjoyed their stay in our condo. We do know that the condo association is planning an extensive upgrade to the elevators later this year so that problem should soon go away.

Excellent stay at SandCastle I!

  • 5 of 5

The rental of this unit was simplistic and convenient. Unit was on the 3rd floor which is perfect for our family - a great view but not too many stairs (there is an elevator too). Lots of little amenities like videos, crayons & color books, books, puzzles, games, and a well equipped kitchen made our stay even better. Convenient shopping and food near-by. Public transportation available near-by too. My teenagers had a great time.

Great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most enjoyable places we have ever stayed at. The condo was clean, comfortable and convenient. The décor was perfect for the beach, the furniture adequate and comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. It had a great view of the Gulf of Mexico and the white sand beach and the sunsets were beautiful. It was convenient to lots of good restaurants with a variety of food and atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the Pub across the street and PJ's Oyster Bar.

Wonderful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is so nice! The decorations are very beachy...just how I like it. It is better than the pictures. All beds are comfy...everything was clean and like new. The view of the beach and Gulf is outstanding!!! The pool and hot tub are great too. The grounds are kept up so nicely and the lighting at night makes it so pretty. We were extremely happy with everything!!! We have rented for several years through VRBO and have never been dissatisfied.

Great!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, and probably the best decorated condo we've ever stayed in. Very nice assortment of DVD's, and the kitchen supplies, utensils, etc, were all high quality and plentiful.

The only shortcoming we experienced was the low, very low, water pressure in the master bath and in the kitchen. For some reason the water pressure in the hall bathroom was OK. So, we simply took all our showers in the hall bathroom. It was just my wife and myself, so it wasn't a problem. However, if more than one family, or if a large family stays in the condo, not being able to bathe in the master bath might become an issue.

Bottom line: we loved the condo and will certainly consider staying there in the future.

Owner's Response: We were unaware of the water pressure problem and will have it looked into as soon as possible. We are pleased that our guests appreciated our decorations and the accessories and utensils we provide. We do constantly make improvements and it is nice to know that our selections are appreciated.
