About the property

Gulf Front Building, Gulf Front Corner Unit, facing beach as close as you can be

Just renovated inside and out. Booking now for April, May and June. Unique opportunity, unique location. Ground floor corner unit. YES, we are right on the beach and the condo faces the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Just saying "on the beach" does not guarantee that you have a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. When searching for a beach condo, make sure that you looking at the Gulf and the sand, not a view of the parking lot and street. Parking space right outside the door. The condo has been completely updated, and we have many return guests. Check our reviews. Check the listing often for our most up-to-date rates and special offers.

Great condo-- complete kitchen renovation finished in 2014. The kitchen was extended from the standard sized condo kitchen. The u-shaped wrap around granite counters make cooking a pleasure. Gorgeous maple cabinets with pullouts and pantry, and stainless steel appliances. It is supplied with many kitchen appliances, cookware and bakeware. Storage capacity and fully stocked kitchen make it as fantastic for monthly rentals as it is for weekly rentals

But if cooking is not your thing, or when you just want to relax and eat out, there are several restaurants within walking distance to make your holiday perfect. Or you can barbecue on one of the grills, located right outside on the pool patio.

New storm proof gliding patio doors and verticals. For those of you who have followed our progress, the renovation we planned for the Fall is now complete. We've installed all new closet doors and interior doors, renovated the hall with new chair rail molding and dimmable lights. We accomplished this while our section of the buidling was rebuilt. All refurbished patios, balconies, and the building freshly painted.. But the best part is the outstanding location. You just can't get any closer to the beach. Spot manatees and dolphins and view fiery sunsets from your living room or patio. No stairs, no hallways, no elevators needed-- just you and the beach. Step right from the living room and patio onto the pool deck then onto the sand. Nothing could feel more like your own private house on the beach. This is what makes our condo so special and why guests return. The location is unique. Reserved parking space right outside the door.

Master bedroom has a partial side view of the beach with king sized bed and en suite updated bathroom. This is a corner unit, so there are windows and doors on 2 sides of the condo. Updated hall bathroom. Second bedroom has 2 new double beds. Each picture (with the exception of the building photo) was taken from the condo. Living room has comfy sofa that seats 3, and there are two separate reclining chairs.

Not just near the beach, but facing the beach and right on the beach. If you're thinking of a beach vacation, why not treat yourself to the real thing? Contact us for the most current weekly specials.

About Ann OConnell

The whole family loves 50 Gulfside. We've been taking our family to Florida and the beach since they were children and now our five grandchildren love it here too. It's a great place to wind down, relax, watch sunsets, catch glimpses of dolphins, make new friends and lounge in the heated pool

Ann OConnell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ann OConnell chose Indian Rocks Beach

We've spent many years vacationing in Clearwater-St. Pete Beach area. We fell in love with this condo the minute we saw it. This is our home right on the beach, and we are so happy to share it. The views are incredible. It is so wonderful to see dolphins and beautiful sunsets right from the living room. We are directly on the beach, ground floor, facing the Gulf of Mexico

What makes this condo unique

This condo offers all the benefits of beach front living. Just walk outside the patio door and you are on the pool deck or step out onto the beach. There are no stairways, halls or other units separating you from the beach. If you don't want to take a chance and then be disappointed with the view, you must come to this unit You can't get any closer to the beach than this

Plan to go back

  • 5 of 5

Great place! We love this area because it’s not a heavy traffic area, but there is plenty to do in any direction. It’s 5-10 minutes to anything you could want in St.Pete, or go North to the Clearwater beach area where there is lots to do or South to Treasure island. This is the best unit in the whole building because: It’s ground floor with a patio steps away from the heated pool and beach. While it’s super close to the pool, it’s not immediately in front of it like some units where people would always be outside your door around the pool. The reserved parking spot is right outside the door. No stairs, no long walk. The unit is on a corner, so there is only one unit that adjoins it. The patio is bigger because it wraps around the corner. It was high 60’s-mid 70’s the whole time we were there, which was nice, but too chilly for swimming at the beach. It worked out great for the kids to be able to swim in the heated pool, while we sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of the ocean. There is a coin operated washer and dryer a short walk down the hall. The front desk people were very nice and Mary from the front went above and beyond to receive a package for us that we were eager to receive and then put it in our room because we weren’t going to back before she left for the day. Also, we were SO glad to have plenty of TV channels to choose from! Nearly everywhere we stay, they go cheap on the channel package and it’s a bit of a bummer when you want to watch TV in the evenings. The package here even had free on demand movies with a very user friendly guide! Hope to be back soon!
