Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a family of five who live in Tampa -- just 30 minutes away from Indian Rocks Beach. Our girls love spending their days at the beach and cooling off at the pool.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
Indian Rocks Beach is close enough to all the amenities and comforts of a large city, while having its own identity of a quaint and quiet little town. The neighborly community, and lack of tacky tourist amenties sets Indian Rocks Beach apart from other area beachfront communities. Of course if you're looking for tacky tourism and all of its amenities, Clearwater Beach and Indian Shores are just a few minutes away! Plus, Gulf Blvd. in Indian Rocks Beach has a center turn-lane allowing easy access through town that areas south of Indian Rocks lack.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Great views of the Gulf and white sandy beaches from the living area, porch and master bedroom are the top attraction. The conveniently located pool, covered parking, wide balcony, chef's kitchen, WiFi, and wood burning fireplace are all super features of this unit. This is smoke-free and pet-free unit.
