About Cindy Lustig

Born & raised near Ann Arbor, I'm a Michigander through & through. Go Blue!

I am the proudest mother of 2 beautiful girls & 3 amazing dogs!

Cindy Lustig purchased this condo in 1995

Why Cindy Lustig chose Florida Central West

I fell in love with this condo initially because of its location. My girls were babies at the time of purchase and I wanted a vacation property to be stress-free. The thought of packing up all our beach needs, dragging it & my babies to a spot 'steps from the beach' didn't sound stress-free. I didn't want to be 'near' the beach, I wanted a property ON the beach. I love to simply walk outside & this stunning beach is at your feet.

What makes this condo unique

Our building attracts families, both young and old. I love that multi-generations of a family can vacation together & everyone is comfortable. We've met wonderful people around the pool area, from all over the world.

Great Place to Stay - Feels Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

We made our first trip to the Gulf Coast of Florida this year. After much research into available condo rentals, could not be happier with our choice to rent this unit for 2 weeks. Cindy was absolutely fabulous. She was very easy to reach, and a very considerate and attentive owner. This three bedroom/two bath side view unit was exactly as described. Gorgeous views of the Gulf in the front and the Intercoastal Waterway in the back. The pier on the gulf was a nice addition. The white sugar sand was so soft! Every evening's sunset was more beautiful than the day before! The unit was found to be very well maintained, clean and spacious. Check-in and check-out went very smoothly with no issues. We had one small issue with the Wifi in the unit. Cindy was very quick to contact BrightHouse cable, and followed through with the company to set up a repair visit at the condo at our convenience. New router fixed the issue. We appreciated her follow-through! We especially enjoyed the birds found around Indian Shores, FL. The suncoast bird sanctuary was less than a block away. This provided a variety of birds out on the Gulf to watch. Egrets, Pelicans, Sandpipers, and even the ordinary seagulls were very entertaining. The area is so beautiful that we were content to sit and enjoy the beach everyday. Shells abound in this area! It is also very convenient to get to local grocery stores, attractions, food establishments, etc. We loved the "small town" feel of Indian Shores as opposed to the more "resort" crowded feel of Clearwater.

Would highly recommend use of this unit, and rental from this owner and would love to return again! We had a great vacation!

Wonderful condo for family March break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful March Break week with our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren (ages 10 and 14). The weather was cooler than normal but we did swim in the Gulf. The beach is very fine white, white sand, like icing sugar and was good for the kids. The pool was very large, the unit had 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 full baths, and worked very well for the 6 of us. The views of the Gulf and the inland water way were spectacular from the 5th story balcony. There's a wonderful bird sanctuary just 2 door down (free but do accept donations) that the kids really enjoyed. The unit is a bit dated, but clean and very functional with lots of room for everyone, a nice kitchen, and a very large balcony with table and chairs. We'd love to come back again. We didn't want to leave and come back to the cold weather of Canada in March.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first visit to the Indian Shores area and won't be our last. We stayed in Cindy's condo for two weeks and our weather was absolutely perfect! The condo was very spacious for our family of six and is beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the beautiful views of both the Intercoastal and the Gulf, and watching the boats as they traveled up and down the Intercoastal.

We loved our morning walks on the beach and watching the many Florida birds. The bird sanctuary is just within walking distance and that was a must see for us bird lovers. A little smelly but it was worth it.

During the day the balcony is in the shade which I loved and late in the day we enjoyed watching the sunsets which were breathtaking. We also enjoyed going out on the private pier to watch sunsets, fishermen, and dolphins. We also saw dolphins swimming in the Intercoastal! The property is well maintained and very clean. If we weren't swimming in the Gulf, we were pool side using both pool and hot tub. A few times we used the grills outside which was a nice change instead of eating out every night.

The property manager was very helpful and friendly and check in went smoothly. If you need to use a printer, the Sand Dollar doesn't allow you to use theirs but a quick run down to the property manager's office and I was able to use theirs.

What I liked most about the area was that it wasn't as crowded as Clearwater, Indian Rocks Beach, and Treasure Island can be. It was very convenient to get to local grocery stores, attractions, and restaurants. I would definitely recommend Cindy's condo. Thank you Cindy for letting us vacation in your condo. We all had a great time and we'll be back in the future!

Loved this property. Plenty of room for everyone and very quiet area

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation and loved the property. The condo was beautiful and had everything to make our stay very comfortable. The beach was beautiful and not crowded so we could sit back enjoy. The area was great and very quiet and peaceful but close enough to attractions, shops and restaurants that you didn't have to drive very far for anything. Thank you for letting us stay in your home away from home. The many memories we created there will never be forgotten.
