Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 - And Has The 'Million Dollar View!'

New inside with gorgeous amenities and appointments throughout make this luxurious 3 bedroom and 2 full bathroom condo the focal point for your next great vacation. Sleeps eight, and from its top floor ocean front location, you can actually view the sunset from the kitchen, dining room, living room and balcony. You can also enjoy the sunset from the hot tub, tennis courts, pool and of course - the beach! Reef Club is a 5-story 55-unit condominium complex with assigned private parking, a beach-side heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor BBQ grills and a fabulous beach. Reef Club is centrally located between Clearwater Beach to the north and St. Petersburg Beach to the south. You are only 30-40 minutes from Tampa International Airport and Busch Gardens. Disney World, Universal Studios and world famous Orlando attractions are just 90 minutes away. Our penthouse beachfront condo is a great place to relax and vacation. A great location for all. Make it your place for your next great vacation!

Don't need a car - extended stay convenience: Great feature - you can take a shuttle from the Tampa Airport to Indian Rocks Beach - about $32.

Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach (Treasure Island) to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price!

Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your digital security code.

AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long.

Again, shuttle to the airport and great trolley on the beach . . . and Gulf Boulevard is great to walk and cruise.

Rentals and packed sand: There are many rentals within 5 miles: skiing, para-sailing, jet-ski - check out the owner's webpage a few lines below for even more information, phone numbers and links . . . . also . . .

The Indian Rocks visitation center is located at the corner of Walsingham and Gulf Boulevard - 4 blocks away - and you can get coupons, flyers and the best price on tickets to events (including Busch Gardens) and just a great place to find out what is 'happening' while you are there.

The packed sand is great for jogging, bike riding or just walking on the beach.

Watch the Seabirds at eye level as they glide by your top floor Reef Club vacation penthouse.

Restaurants and places: Best ice cream in the world! Candy Kitchen - they make their own - go there. They have the same ice cream at 'Candy Kitchen' (one block north of Reef Club . . . just the portions are not as large :).

Salt Rock Grill - atmosphere! Great value - surf & turf - more . . . go before 5:00 for extraordinary prices!

Crabby Bill's - Seafood - always happening. Within very close walking distance - TJ's, Keegan's, Guppys and PJ's Oyster Bar - all good.

THE Pub - down the street. Dine at the outside bar evenings and watch the Intracoastal.

TJ's Italian Pizza, Picata and Sea Bass. Maggie Mae's Sunrise Cafe - in Sand Key for great breakfasts.

Try the bagel Tuna for lunch at Lighthouse Doughnuts - and of course the donuts and breakfasts are great! Canadians say 'We had their bagel sandwiches and they were better than the Canadian ones!'

All the above located on Gulf Boulevard.

About Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez

As a family of five, Charlotte and I have vacationed in Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, South America - etc. and all great wonderful vacation locations. However our best - stress free and quality vacations have been at the Gulf Beaches of Florida. The location is always ideal for weather, activities, friends and family . . . and we don't feel like we had to out of the country to vacation - we didn't! Great location and easy to get to and so much to do. Pro sports teams in Tampa, Busch Gardens, Gulf beauty and of course we would always go to Orlando and enjoy everything Orlando has to offer - from Disney, to Sea World to the Orlando Magic. This is simply a great location and this condo is beachfront - penthouse - 30 minutes from Tampa airport . . . what more can you say. Getting here is easy for Western Hemisphere and European vacationers and you can start your vacation right away. We have enjoyed this area immensely.

Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez purchased this condo in 2014

Why Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez chose Florida Central West

Beachfront location top floor ocean view penthouse 30 minutes from Tampa International with Tampa/Orlando at your fingertips. Great people during our stays. We like the people we have met. Great location to fly to - great location to drive to - and great location to center your vacation from. We particularly like the Reef Club. It has a design and accommodations that welcome guests and allow for a great vacation location.

What makes this condo unique

There are a lot. Top Floor Ocean Front and on the beach and enjoy the view at sunset while watching seagulls coast by, hot tub, pool, volleyball, gas grills - bike rides on the beach. FYI, I enjoyed watching the sun set from the top floor balcony while enjoying an excellent carbernet and a McDonald's double cheeseburger. (It had been a long day). TJ's is 3 minutes north and excellent. Crabby Bills a 5 minute walk away - and great places to eat. Resting with the ocean breeze . . . comfortable neighborhood with restaurants within walking distance.

Don't need a car - extended stay convenience: Great feature - you can take a shuttle from the Tampa Airport to Indian Rocks Beach - about $26 SuperShuttle (727) 572-1111. Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price! Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your security code. AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long. Again, great shuttle to the airport and great trolley on the beach.

beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo from 8/12/17-8/19/17 and had a great time! The view is amazing and saw some beautiful sunsets from the balcony. The kitchen is clean, updated, and has a lot of useful kitchenware for cooking. The bedrooms were spacious. The wet bar was a nice feature. There were plenty of beach toys for the kids to use. The wi-fi internet connection wasn't the greatest, so that was a bit frustrating when I needed to do some work remotely; however, we still loved our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Neta and family for staying at our condo. That time of the year the sunsets are particularly good because they are "right in front" and you literally have one of the best views. Will check the wi-fi as it generally "rocks" - we pay for the premium at 75 to 150 mb and this is the first I have heard of any issue other than "it rocks" - will check. A quick call may have resolved and I am easy to get to. It is the same fast server and access point we use for our condos next door which were good that week - but you never know. Safe travels and again thank you, Rick and Charlotte

Excellent

Great Location, Beautiful Condo on the beach with direct view of the beach!

Perfect setting for those with families with pool, beach access, and restaurants within walking distance. The owners, Rick & Charlotte had been so accommodating and their response time is excellent. The Condo is kept in fantastic condition as Rick & Charlotte have put a great deal of effort into taking care of their Condo and it shows.

- Thank you Rick & Charlotte for providing my family and I with a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Christina, Patrick and family - thank you for the review and glad we could get than done! - literally 3 days before your arrival - and we get that feedback with last minute rentals that turn out well and thank you for mentioning that for you and your family it was a "wonderful experience". Our cleaning crew headed up by Sue got it ready and I gave her a heads up to have things stocked and ready. We look forward to future stays and again thank you for staying at our condo.

Stop looking and reserve!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family have been coming to this area for nearly 20 years. This condo was as nice as any we've rented. Everything you need is provided, very well furnished, and very clean. The view is unmatched and Rick was super to work with, answering any questions I had and providing information to help with any activities you may be interested in doing. He even saved us $20 a ticket to Busch Gardens. If the opportunity is available we will be coming back in the future. Thanks for the use of your condo and a great week of making memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you Turner, Amanda and Family: The ticket savings are still there at the nearby visitor's center and it surprises me that they are better/cheaper than when you get near Busch Gardens and all the signs, etc. Great that you mentioned for future guests. We appreciate the review and look forward to future visits. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte

Convenient location with great view

  • 4 of 5

Clean condo and right on the beach. Balcony not great for little ones as the gaps in the railing are too wide apart and if not watching kids could slip through...scary. We would stay here again once the kids are bigger, but it is ideal for adults and larger kids.

Owner's Response: Dear Tim and Betsy: Thank you for the review and follow-up. Also want to remind future guests that it is also possible for young ones to climb on the chairs and tables when on the balcony and defeat the purpose of the railing. We have not had this mentioned before and all the balconies are that design at Reef Club. All the balconies have chairs and tables at Reef Club which could present a similar problem if kids are left unattended. Reef Club was built in 1981 and since then the railings are mandated narrower with construction. Will make mention with future guests and when brought up with pre-arrival Charlotte and I will stress to always keep an eye on your young ones. Also around the pool, hot tub, tennis courts, beach, ocean, parking garage and elevators. With four adults and two kids there was no mention of the need for a pak n play, a high chair or renting a crib. (My thinking was the kids were older). To future guests we can make our pak'n play and high chair available from our owner's closet. It is something we cover with in pre-arrival (and can make available) . . . and when that question comes up we generally mention to keep an eye with on the young ones. The balcony access doors also shut and there is no immediate access to the railing when they are shut. Thank you for the review and for mentioning. We look forward to your future visits and best to you and family. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte

Beach Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful beach location and condo is completely updated. Definitely a million dollar view from the living room, kitchen/dining and master bedroom. Morning coffee on the balcony while dolphin watching is a must. Rick and Charlotte were wonderful to work with. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Awesome unit and View!

Our stay at the Gonzalez Family beach condo was wonderful. The weather was sunny and breezy every day. The condo is beautifully appointed and well taken care of. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen had all the things we needed. Close proximity to great restaurants and fun things to do. View is outstanding. Hope to come back again!
