Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You get the best of both worlds in this newly-renovated beachfront cottage just steps from the pristine white sands of Indian Rocks Beach on the Gulf of Mexico!

This two-bedroom vintage charmer on the beach looks like a dollhouse from the outside, but inside you'll find a fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar, new 32-inch flat-screen televisions in both bedrooms and a large flat-screen in the living room, furnished with comfortable sink-into-me furniture and bright tropical artwork. Cable and Wi-Fi service are included throughout and this private vacation home also features a washer/dryer for your convenience. Best of all, the spacious balcony offers to-die-for water views and a table for alfresco dining. The full bathroom features new tile floors and a shower/tub combination and the master bedroom includes an ensuite half bath. Both bedrooms feature queen sized beds and both the living room sofa and the love seat convert to beds, one full sized and one twin. You'll have an assigned parking space, with additional parking available for visitors or a second vehicle, although in this convenient location, you can walk to the restaurants and shops that are literally across the street.

Indian Rocks Beach is just a 10-minute ride on the beach trolley to John's Pass Village, a large marina, shopping and dining complex that offers a variety of water sports rentals, casino boats and dolphin-watching or sunset cruises. Ten minutes to the north, you'll find another marina and a variety of shops and restaurants at Clearwater Beach, also home to the Clearwater Aquarium, the residence of dolphin movie star Winter from Dolphin Tale. For a taste of city life, nearby downtown St. Petersburg, a 20-minute drive from the beach, is home to several world-class art museums, including the renowned Salvador Dali Museum, and popular attractions less than an hour's drive away include Busch Gardens, Adventure Island and the Florida Aquarium. For day trips, Orlando, Disney World and Sea World are a 90-minute drive and both the Tampa International Airport and the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport are within a 30-minute drive.

You can do as much or as little as you like at family-friendly Indian Rocks Beach, a serene beach town that offers spectacular white sand beaches and award-winning local restaurants. It's a perfect spot for romantic getaways, family vacations or a break from cold winter weather!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at port holiday #4. First of all, everything inside is updated and decorated very nice. The little touches just make it stand out from other rental we’ve stayed at. There’s plenty of space and the furniture is very comfortable, it’s all lazy boy. Any problems that we did have quickly addressed by the property managers. I can’t say enough good things about this and will definitely be returning many many times.

Make sure you bring bug spray because if you like to watch the sunset on the Balcony or have your coffee in the morning out there like I did every day, you will be eaten alive by mosquitoes. As soon as I figured it out I started using bug spray and never had a problem again. There is nothing more amazing than sitting out there in the morning and watching the dolphins (we saw dolphins every single day, multiple times each day) while drinking your coffee, or having a margarita at sunset. Absolutely amazing.

The other upstairs units have to go out there front door and around the building to get to the beach, but this unit has stairs from the balcony! It’s a tight squeeze between the stairs in the wall to use this way, but absolutely awesome and so convenient to have that! I let my seven-year-old go up there whenever she wanted to, because I could watch her practically the whole way. This adorable place is literally right on the beach so if one of us was up in the condo with the baby while she napped, we could still sit on the patio and even talk to the rest of the family who was down at the shore. I just can’t even tell you how cool it was to have that.

Although we had our car, we took the beach trolley up to Clearwater because parking is always a nightmare up there. It was so fun to go shopping for the day and see sunset on Pier 60, when they have tons of performers and vendors selling their crafts. We only did that one day though because we just couldn’t get enough of Indian rocks Beach.

There are so many good restaurants within walking distance of the condo, my favorite was probably JDs. Lighthouse donuts was great, and again all in walking distance. Directly across the street from the unit is the cutest little coffee shop in the world, Ready Set Yo. They have protein shakes, lots of organic and gluten-free items, but there espresso drinks were better than Starbucks. Definitely check them out.

Speaking of Coffee, The unit has both a keurig machine and a traditional coffee pot, which I thought was really considerate and convenient.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about the location and condition this place, you will make amazing memories and not be sorry if you book it.

Had a GREAT time!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are exactly what you get! The condo is clean and very well stocked. After staying in several other condos in various beach towns across the country, this was definitely the best bang for your buck! The views are amazing and the proximity from the necessities make it wonderful. (CVS is literally across the street and few step to the left.) You are within walking distance to several restaurants, bars, coffee shops and ice cream parlors. We had a car and really only used it one night to drive to Clearwater but public transportation is readily available!

My husband and I and our two kids (ages 6 and 17) were very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked and they even had some extra supplies if case you forgot or hadn't made it to the store yet. She sliding glass doors open on both sides and offer amazing views and openness with natural light!

The balcony is the PERFECT spot for sunset viewing and photos! With it being a top condo the views were amazing. We saw dolphins in the mornings often. The outdoor space has a large table and plenty of chairs and space!

The rooms are back to back which was okay with us since we like to be near our kids.

The didn't see it in the photos but the unit actually has stairs off of the side of the balcony which made beach access SO EASY! The condo has maybe 7 beach chairs and an umbrella and toys and even floaties to lounge on in the water.

The beach was nice and clean and really the only people us were the other families in the other units. We saw a family of manatees as well as the dolphins!!

We stayed the week of the 4th of July so the celebrations were beautiful!!

We did end up buying an EZ-up because it was really hot and the shade was needed!

We would definitely stay here again.

We throughly enjoyed our vacation!!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This second story condo offered a relaxing week of beautiful sunsets, clean and attractive rooms. There was always hot water for baths/showers. Perfect for a family. To get to the second bedroom you had to go thru the first bedroom so that might be a problem for some. It was just what some Michiganders needed that were tired of the cold. To the south was a wonderful winery in St. Petersburg. To the north we took the bus/trolley system to crowded Clearwater. To the east was a nice nature park system close by and of course the road to Legoland. The oceanside was where we spent most of our time. Traffic was crazy on the weekends and during rush hour. We had a great time with one of our young grandsons and his parents.

Map

Clearwater is a quiet Florida town that boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Florida. Wiggle your toes in the sugary soft sand, partake in the wide array of watersports available, or spend the day sightseeing. No matter what Clearwater activities you choose, you can't go wrong with a Clearwater vacation and iTrip Vacation's lineup of Clearwater condo rentals.

Clearwater's diverse ecosystem has been gaining popularity as a leader in eco-tourism. With over 300 species of fish populating its waters, Clearwater is a prime fishing destination. The many local parks around our Clearwater condos provide the perfect setting for biking, hiking, bird watching, and many other nature-related activities. Clearwater activities extend past just beach fun. Get up close and personal with dolphins, sea turtles, and otters at the Marine Aquarium or visit the downtown area and take in a show or orchestra concert at the Ruth Eckerd Hall. There are also many shops near our Clearwater condos, a little something for every kind of shopper. At Countryside Mall, not only can you enjoy great shopping but also beat the summer heat on the indoor ice-rink located at the center of the mall.

A Clearwater vacation can't be complete without an evening visit to Pier 60, a short distance from our Clearwater condos, to see the most beautiful sunsets in Florida. Each night Sunsets at Pier 60 celebrate the setting sun with live music, local arts and crafts and street performers. After a long day of fun in the sun, you'll be glad to return to one of our Clearwater condos to recharge and start it all again in the morning. Here at iTrip Vacations, we know how important a truly spectacular vacation is and that is why we strive to offer only the best Clearwater condo rentals.
