Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Thanks for viewing our listing. We are a Tampa family with kids between the ages of 9 & 21. We decided that we could use a 'decompression' chamber from our busy work & school lives & looked for a beach home. We ALL had a part in choosing & preparing this amazing condo to suit our needs. We think you'll love it as much as we do...& will want to come back again! Nina & Family

Why the Owner Chose Indian Shores, FL, USA:
When we were looking for a beach home, we viewed properties as far away as 100 miles from our Tampa home. Initially we thought we only wanted to be directly on the Gulf beach, but then we saw Captain's Cove! It's truly the best of all water getaways. And Indian Shores is a beautiful, quaint town with some awesome dining experiences just blocks away. The kids in our family absolutely love this setting & condo! It's private, quiet, yet minutes from revved up activities (although we go mainly to relax & enjoy each other). We hope to share our beautiful getaway with a select few vacationers each year. Let us know if you're interested!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We just can't get enough of sitting on the beautiful balcony, overlooking the water & wildlife. The long walks on the beach, beautiful sunsets, watching the dolphin and manatee from our dock, eating fresh grouper sandwiches in the local outdoor restaurants...we love it all! We've upgraded this spacious condo & added the latest electronics & wi-fi and brand new laundry and kitchen appliances...guaranteed to WOW the socks off of you.
