About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Our renovation started with a new ceiling, new paint in every room, new doors and trim, and new tile floors throughout the unit. The kitchen was entirely gutted and there are new cabinets, granite counters, tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances. The bathrooms have been totally redone with new cabinets, fixtures, and tiles. The master bath has a travertine shower with a seat. The master bedroom has entirely new furniture. All bedrooms were outfitted with new mattresses and boxsprings.

This direct Gulf front condominium is located on the 6th floor of the popular, family-friendly Sand Castle I Condominiums. The master bedroom and living room share a large balcony directly overlooking the beach. While looking out the balcony’s sliding doors, either from your comfortable King size bed or from the cozy leather sofas, you are looking at the beautiful white sands and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The balcony overlooking the pool and the beach offers the perfect seat for watching the sunsets and listening to the calming crashing of the waves on the shore. Enjoy the fabulous view of boats cruising the intracoastal waterway from the window of the 2 guest bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a new king size bed, the second bedroom has 2 queen size beds with new mattresses and the third bedroom has a new queen size bed. This condo is fully equipped with a washer and dryer, flat screen TV in every bedroom and a large flat screen TV in the living room.

*****This is a premium condo listing.*****

The condo offers free wireless internet and unlimited long distance calling to the US and Canada.

NOTE: If the week you are looking to book is already blocked off, we have the condo right next door, also beautifully updated. See VRBO# 3851512ha for pictures and availability. Great for large families who want two condos side by side!

Car: Recommended

Indian Shores is situated to the south of Indian Rocks Beach, and is a barrier island community on Florida’s Gulf Coast. The Gulf is to the west and the Intracoastal Waterway is to the east, divided by the main thoroughfare, Gulf Blvd. The town is just 19 blocks long, but is known for its friendly atmosphere, panoramic beaches, great seafood and tropical wildlife (home to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary). Indian Shores is convenient to famous theme parks, and the cities of Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We are parents of three from Massachusetts. We wanted to find a warm getaway from the cold northern winters.

Why Indian Shores, FL, USA:
We bought this property because it is beachfront and has glorious sunsets. The wonderful walking/biking lanes on the main road are an added benefit, making it very easy to get around. That is, if you can leave the fantastic white sand beach! This property is one of the most beautifully landscaped in the area, and the pool and hot tub are pristine. The building is very well maintained.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There are loads of stores and restaurants in the area, while the famous John's Pass Village and Boardwalk just down the road offers more than a hundred shops and galleries in a quaint fishing village setting. In the opposite direction, you can easily get to the Clearwater nightlife. There is a great, inexpensive trolley system that goes up and down Gulf Boulevard.
