Great Location central to plethora of activities

  • 5 of 5

This trip was a surprise for my wife's birthday. We truly enjoyed the property it was centrally located to all kinds of activities. The property is well maintained literally right on the beach, it was easily accessible parking is convenient and easy access to the unit. Access to the beach was super easy and convenient and literally steps From the property. The unit was well stocked the kitchen had everything you needed and is the perfect place for a couple or small family to spend a great vacation. The trolley that serves Clearwater Beach and St Pete has a stop right in front of the property and we utilize this a couple times to get around so we didn't have to drive will having some adult beverages. There is plenty of places to eat get a fresh cup of coffee and just explore all along the Gulf Boulevard which goes right in front of the property. Great communication by the owners about getting checked in and providing info as needed super easy to work with and provided for a great week getaway. Thanks again we greatly enjoyed our stay and look forward to booking again in the future.

Perfect Spot in the heart of Indian Shores!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Beach Balcony! We found the unit much bigger than we thought it would be. Very spacious and open. The view from the balcony is the BEST! This unit has everything you'll need, from cooking utensils, dishware, beach towels, chairs and floats. We appreciated Sylvia's communications before and after our stay. We'll be back!

Ready to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I am barely unpacked from our week long stay at the beach and I am ready to go back! The condo was the best supplied condo we have ever stayed in over the years of taking trips to the beach. We had forgotten to pack our binoculars and sure enough there was a pair for our use in the condo. We had an up close view of the dolphins!

One of the things I appreciated the most was that the beach was so close to the building. It was great for enjoying breakfast on the balcony while watching the day begin or watching the glorious sunsets. It was especially nice to be so close when carrying chairs, the umbrella, etc to and from the beach each day.

If you select this has your home away from home, I don't think you will be disappointed. The pictures are accurate and there were no "surprises" other than it was roomier than I thought it would be. The condo is clean and well maintained. There have also been some updates to appliances and fixtures.

The week we were there, the beach was very quiet during the week. It seemed to be a little more active on the weekends which may be because there is a public access point next to the building. Even though it picked up, you could still have your space on the beach without being crowded.

Even though it is a quiet little area, there are plenty of restaurants nearby with some really good food. There is a little hole in the wall restaurant/pub a mile or so south called Wahoos that was probably my favorite. Cast iron cooking (blackened) was their specialty. The lightly blackened grouper was really good and I especially enjoyed the seafood bisque.

Thanks, Sylvia & Angelo, for opening your condo to us for a wonderful week at the beach. We are already thinking about a return trip.

5 star all the way

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat customers for the past four years and we are never disappointed.

This 1st floor condo is right on the beach ( you literally couldn't get any closer) where we watch dolphins and manetees swim by. Centrally located close to amazing restaurants and area attractions (deep sea fishing at John's Pass, kayak rentals, speed boat rides out in the gulf at Clearwater beach). The bus stops right outside your door for ease of getting around.

The condo is well appointed with everything you will need to make your stay more comfortable. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas for the beach are all provided. Each year there is always some sort of upgrade ie: new dishwasher, refrigerator, couch etc.

The condo is also pet friendly so each year we can bring our little fur baby with us. There is a small pet walk area right outside the building with bags and a waste bin ( very convenient for those early morning walks)

Your hosts Sylvia & Angelo are so attentive and will look after your every need and they have become our extended family.

The pictures on the website tell the whole story.
