Recommend Unit updates for future potential tenants
Common areas of building clean and well maintained. The unit we rented needed a deep cleaning. Baseboards, vanity surfaces, kitchen granite & light fixtures were all grimy or dusty. Cleaning supplies were limited. Would have been nice to have paper goods supplied: tissue, toilet paper and paper towels. Some plumbing ie: kitchen faucet spray pull out, shower head leak, guest bath. Screen door track needs lubrication. Over abundance of decor/utensils. Could be sorted out and removed. Was a great floor plan,
Thank you for your stay. Please keep in mind that condos are not hotels and paper goods and cleaning supplies are provided for the initial arrival date/week, but not for an entire month stay.
Lovely property, enjoyed our week
Thank you, and we hope you come back!
Fantastic Condo on the Beach
We've vacationed at several 'rental' homes/condos in Florida over the years with our family and found this condo to be one of our top picks.
We were very pleased with the amenities within the condo unit, particularly the spacious of the unit, the well-stocked large kitchen, the amount of storage space, the quantity and quality of the linens/towels and the overall comfort within the unit.
We never felt like we were on top of eachother within the condo. The kitchen was large enough to allow for 2 people to be cooking, and even a 3rd person and provided lots of cookware. The dining table allowed us all to sit together for meals and the living room provided all 6 of us to comfortably sit and watch a movie. There were more than enough linens and towels available and we were quite happy to do a load of laundry with the front-load washer.
The building site itself was noticeably kept-up well, beach access was great (although a 3rd key would be nice, as we usually had to juggle kids wanting to go to the beach, some adults wanting to run for groceries, and others going in a different direction, and a key is required to go to/from the beach).
The beach was great and we never felt crammed. We appreciated the beach chairs/umbrella/cart/toys that were provided
We felt very safe in Indian Shores and enjoyed scouting out the local offerings.
We were able to see the beach/water from our balcony, although it was not a beachfront view. Our balcony oversaw the bird sanctuary next door. Other reviewers complained about the noise or smell from the sanctuary; we never experienced issues of smell and the only noise we encountered was very early in the morning (and it was not loud enough to keep us awake). Having a view of the sanctuary was a nice bonus as we got to see many birds come and go throughout the day.
There will always be little things that are not to everyone's satisfaction when vacationing. I've chosen not to pick apart every little aspect of the condo. It's a vacation rental. Not a rental with options custom-tailored to my specific preferences (I think many people need to realize this when they rent/review places).
Overall a very pleasant stay. Would I rent here again? Absolutely!
Thank you so very much for your detailed review. We are so glad your family enjoyed it!
Beautiful Condo and Great Location
My husband and I can't thank Alina enough for sharing her beautifully appointed condo with us. Thank You! Thank You! From the start before even stepping foot unto the property, Alina is was great at communicating with us and a gem. The condo looks lovely in pic's but so much to take in once you first walk in! Absolutely beautiful! Loved the kitchen and we slept like babies in the master. Everything you need is there for a wonderful no stress vacation. We only packed 2 carry ons' for our week stay. The beach location is quiet and relaxing and having the good beach chairs at the condo was a plus. We walked a few blocks down and enjoyed our first night dinner at Broke n' Board and dined outside. Highly recommend for a great fuss free dinner or lunch. Overall, we had a fantastic stay at the condo and an action packed, fun filled week. We would absolutely stay here again! Thank you Alina! Merry Christmas and Wishing you a Happy & Healthy New Year!
Thank you so very much for your lovely review! Just what I love to hear from our guests! Please do come back!
We had a great time.

Why Alina Giasi chose Indian Shores
The Gulf beaches are just stunning, calm clear waters with an array of colors, wild life, colorful shells, and miles of peaceful white sand beaches; yet we are within walking distance of fine dining, unique shops, and many water sports and amenities, including day cruises such as Deep Water Fishing, Casino Cruises, Dolphin Watching and children's cruises, water sports, great entertainment and fresh local seafood restaurants. We enjoy our family getaways and hope to share our beautiful beaches and home with our guests. We live in Tampa, just about 45 minutes away from the condo, and bought this property as our second home. Our aim is to make our guests feel this is a second home to them as well. Many of our guests and repeat customers year after year.
