About Trish Blyth

We are a Canadian couple currently living and working in Atlanta, Georgia. We have two children – our daughter goes to university in Canada and our son attends high school in Atlanta.

Trish Blyth purchased this condo in 2012

Why Trish Blyth chose Florida Central West

We have been vacationing in the Indian Shores area for over 20 years. We chose to purchase an unobstructed, ocean view unit at Sandcastle II because of its beautiful (and perfect) location on the beach. Nothing beats being able to enjoy the ocean, day and night, from the comfort of our condo (we love spending time on our balcony) or sitting at the water’s edge with our feet in the sand. We love the quiet relaxing atmosphere of the area, too. When we crave more action, it’s easy to find it in Clearwater Beach, just 8 miles (20 min) north, and Treasure Island, 8 miles south and/or St. Pete, 12 miles (24 min) south. It truly is the best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

It’s newly and expertly renovated with comfort and beauty in mind – both yours and ours. Since we plan to spend time in the condo with family and friends for years to come, it was important that the extensive renovations be top notch. We succeeded – the condo feels like a resort with all the conveniences of home and more. Our intention is that you enjoy this beach vacation condo as much as we do, fall in love with this seaside paradise and come back year after year!

Wonderful condo for a family of 5

  • 4 of 5

This condo is very clean, uncluttered, modern kitchen and bathrooms, bright living space in the common areas and bedrooms....very comfortable and relaxing for our family. The beds are extremely comfortable and, of course, the VIEW is gorgeous. We spent a lot of time on the balcony reading, playing cards, eating meals or just looking at the ocean. We loved being able to walk down to the beach and pool. For a week in , April, we were surprised at how much space we had on the beach. There were plenty of people staying at the condos and homes along the beach but the beach is not at all crowded. It is a beautiful beach.

The pool had more action but that was to be expected during April vacation and it was a well maintained pool and hot tub.

We did a day trip to Tree Umph, a climbing adventure park about an hour north of Indian Shores, and went to Clearwater Aquarium (overpriced with little to see or do in our opinion) but other than that, we were very happy to stay put and enjoy the beach. The Pub across the street was nice for a meal.

We recommend this condo.

Great place. Very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Unit was as advertised. Good kitchen, decent space. Only real issue is the parking situation. There is only 1 space per unit, and 4 "guest" spots for the entire 10-story building. Several people parked in the wrong spaces which of course trickled down to others. No issues with the unit itself. Would return again.

Great condo

  • 4 of 5

Condo was very comfortable! We enjoyed our stay, however we feel that the kitchen was not well equipped.

There was no small appetizer dishes, no serving platters. in the kirchen there was only 1tea towel and 2 dish clothes. Also there are no sharp knives.

The beach chairs were ripped and dirty and we were unable to use them.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you found my condo was very comfortable. Thank you for informing me about the knives I will ensure that they are sharpened. I do not supply beach chairs as indicated in my ad on the site. Those chairs must have been left by the previous guest and I will have them removed. Thank you for choosing my condo for your vacation and keep me in mind for any furutre travel plans.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing vacation. The condo looked just like the pictures. It was very clean, comfortable and beautiful. The view from the balcony was spectacular. We swam and fished in the ocean right in front of the condo. The pool area was also cleaned daily. The was location is truly ideal. Most importantly Trish was very easy to work with. She went well beyond our expectations and was very helpful. We hope to return with more of our family. Thank you Trish.

Nice condo / Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a beautiful beachfront location. It was very clean and plenty of room for my family of 6. Loved the slider doors off the master bedroom, and the master bathroom and shower were very nice. The kitchen was also updated nicely. We spent many hours on the large balcony, watching the incredible sunsets, and the beauty of the Gulf. The outdoor grounds and pool was also very clean, and cared for well by maintenance staff.

The following are just a few things that would be helpful to know ahead of time:

* There were plenty of bath towels provided, however only 2 pool towels were provided. I have family living in the area and (luckily) we were able to borrow some towels for our stay.

* Laundry Soap, Dishwasher Soap, and Dish Soap (for the sink) were not provided. We brought our own laundry detergent to use during the stay. However, the laundry machine had a note on it specifying to use HE detergent only, which we did not have. So, we ended up purchasing this on our own. It might be a good idea to supply this to renters so that the life of your washing machine is a nice long one.

All in all, we all had a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at my renovated beachfront condo. The new kitchen is certainly a pleasure to work in and the views from the large beachfront balcony are truly spectacular. Thank you for your comments regarding the beach towels. My listing does state that 2 beach towels are provided. However, I will highlight that for future guests. Also I will highlight that the washing machine requires HE detergent. I am glad you had a lovely vacation enjoying all the amenities of my condo as well as the newly renovated pool area. Hope to see you back.
