This is a newly remodeled, renovated, luxurious 2 bedroom (with 2 king beds)-2 bathroom condo with panoramic direct facing Gulf front views. Unit has newer furnishings, and is decorated with contemporary flair, a little local art and a bit of Rock-n-Roll edge. Unit is ideal for 4 people but will accommodate 6 with a full size sleeper sofa in the living room.

Unit contains the latest amenities possible including: free WiFi, state of the art flatscreen Samsung TV's with a 55' SmartTV in the living room, 40' flat screen Samsung SmartTV in master bedroom and 36' flat screen Samsung TV in 2nd Bedroom.

Unit has two balconies, one off living area and another off master bedroom, which open up to crashing waves and jumping dolphins. No vertical blinds to deal with... Unit comes with remote controlled electric solar shades in both living room and master bedroom. Best of all, unit has new 'retractable' sliding glass doors in living room that disappear into the wall giving you a 'wide open' view of the Gulf from living, dining and kitchen areas. You have to see it to believe it!

The kitchen and bathrooms have been remodeled with new cabinetry and granite countertops. Kitchen is equipped with high-end stainless steel appliances and upgraded cookware. Both bathrooms have new stacked stone showers, come stocked with premium towels, and the master shower is glass enclosed.

Condo has nice designer touches - stacked stone in master bedroom on main/accent wall and around the wood-burning fireplace in living room, as well as a contemporary bar area with floating shelves, wine cabinet and under lighting in living room.

Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated and well appointed with luxurious bedding, remote controlled bedside wall sconce lighting, and ceiling fans. Closets in both bedrooms have been nicely remodeled by California Closets with plenty of build-ins and storage.

This unit comes with everything you need for an outstanding beach vacation, including plush beach towels, sturdy Tommy Bahama beach chairs, big beach umbrella, portable cooler and a multitude of beach toys.

The 'Indian Shores/Indian Rocks Beach' area is one of America's best kept secrets. Fantastic location; a friendly laid back beach community that is minutes to groceries, a wide variety of restaurants, shopping, golfing, boating, sailing, fishing, jet-skiing, biking, every activity imaginable. It is centrally located between St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa. Universal, Disney World, Epcot, Hard Rock Casino and Busch Gardens just a short drive away.

About Beth Quast

My husband and I, originally from the mid-west (Minnesota and Ohio, respectively), stumbled across the Indian Shores/Indian Rocks Beach communities and fell in love with this quaint, laid back beach area immediately and knew we would make this our permanent home.

We purchased our first beach property in 2012, and it did not take us long before we purchased our second. Now we are the proud owners of multiple beach properties and are happy to share our homes with you, your family and friends.

Beth Quast purchased this condo in 2012

A perfect oasis on the water. Comfortable and inviting with beautiful furnishings and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the condo. It was beautifully furnished but not stuffy and being steps from the beach, the view was amazing.

Everything was beautiful. Beds were super comfy and they had everything you might need for a day at the beach! Even fluffy beach towels!

Terrible experience. Dishonest merchant

  • 1 of 5

Property was good. But the motor blind broke after a gentle tug. I did not know it was motor controlled so pulled it gently and the whole thing fell off. The manager Beth insist I broke it. I said fine, I did purchase the damage protection you can file a claim. The manager had her husband looked at it the next day and told us it will not cost him anything to fix it and it will be fixed the next day. The manager then refuse to provide me my damage deposit in full and send me a photo of a online bill for $350, which has the item name covered and told me to file the claim. Homeaway’s damage protection service told me the homeowner should be the one to file claims and official receipt will be required. Of course no official receipt was ever provided. Beth said the receipt won’t be here for days because work is not done, although her husband said earlier it will be done next day. Not only we had to stay in this place with no curtain for three days, but also the manager was rude, irreasonable and insulting. She got so frustrated in justifying her actions and said “ I don’t know why you put down deposit and protection insurance at the sametime, but since you did I am keeping your money”. I checked with homeaway and they said the manager did require both for the rental. So again, a blatant lie. I personally don’t think the repair cost them anything and they know the claim won’t go thru. I also have doubts about the curtain if it was functioning at all before we even entered. These people are keeping my money because they know the claim may not go thu. I am having to have my credit card company dispute the charges. Unbelievable people! Don’t book here if you don’t want a nightmare after vacation

Owner's Response: This guest accidentally broke our motorized blind, and we used her refundable damage deposit to pay for the repair. Both a preliminary estimate and final receipt were provided. Since the guest put down a refundable security deposit, I took the cost of the repair from the deposit and refunded the remainder a few days after departure. Unfortunately, the parts to repair took some time to arrive and a few of our guests have had to go without the blind. However, the parts are here and the blind will be repaired this week. I believe our other reviews speak for themselves ... Future guests, rest assured you will have a wonderful experience!
