Overview

About the property

Here's our condo. Two stories. That's the Gulf of Me

A condo that feels like a house, with private parking and entrance. Purchased fall 2012 and completely renovated. The entire first floor has beautiful new tile. Complete renovation of the kitchen, and the three bathrooms & bathrooms. New hurricane proof windows everywhere keeps the outside noise outside. East-facing balconies are perfect in both the afternoon and the evening. Great in the morning sunshine during chilly weather.

The kitchen/dining/living area is open plan with a beautiful granite counter top accessible from both the kitchen and the dining area. The flat-screen TV can be rotated so if you are there during March Madness you can see the games from the eating area.

Every bedroom has its own bathroom and balcony. Big laundry room with huge washer and dryer. There is a small outdoor living area and a grill but with the beach so close, that's where you will want to spend your time. Beach chairs, and everything else I can think of you might want, are available in the storage unit downstairs.

About Louise and Russ Moses

We purchased the condo in September of 2012 and have lived in it throughout the extensive remodeling. We designed it for ourselves but enjoy renting it.

Louise and Russ Moses purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Louise and Russ Moses chose Florida Central West

The location is perfect. The beach is a short block away, less than one tenth of a mile. Two minutes from the kitchen to the water. You will want to visit some of the other local beaches and will probably walk farther from the parking lot to those beaches than you will walk from your kitchen to the beautiful Indian Rocks Beach. The Episcopal church owns the property across the street and provides a quiet setting. You will enjoy watching the beach people come and go from the balcony.

The balconies are east-facing so very pleasant to sit on in the afternoon and evening. The inter-coastal waterway is not visible but is just on the other side of the church property across the street. The tops of the boats are visible.

What makes this townhome unique

The location is perfect for those who enjoy short walks more than long drives. I walk to get my hair done at Rapunzels, and my nails at Crytals. Our three favorite restaurants in Pinellas county are Keegan's, TJ's and Guppy's. A very short walk will take you to all of them. The Indian Rocks Beach Municipal Park is to the north-east. It has a nice playground, and skate park, and tennis courts.

Beautiful Indian Rocks Beach
Car: recommended

Indian Rocks Beach is an old-fashioned beach town. Most essentials are available without leaving the island, and many within walking distance. Cafe de Paris, an authentic French cafe, is about three fourths of a mile down the beach from the condo. Stop by for the best croissants outside of France.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The location for this condo is perfect! It is a very short walk to easy beach access and lots of restaurants. The beach is long and beautiful. We had friends staying with us, so having three bathrooms and balconies is a real plus. There is also lots of parking on the property. The condo is very comfortable and well equipped.We really appreciate that basics like salt , oil, spices and more are there when you arrive. Louise and Russ are wonderful, responsive hosts! It is a great location for Spring Training games- within half an hours drive to Dunedin ( Blue Jays).

The best home away from home in 15 annual visits to IRB.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean, clear, open, bright and delightfully decorated. It felt just like we were visiting a close friends home....plenty of fluffy towels, unexpected and much appreciated treats. Great use of cubes instead of dressers. Relaxing alone time on our own porch. Parking for 2 vehicles, a laundry room fully furnished as was the shed. Also puzzles, cards and other games, books, area event brochures...The owner visited us once and that was like visiting for a couple of minutes with a treasured friend. We'll be baaaaack!

Beautiful near-the-beach condo. Hosts seemed to anticipate every need.

  • 5 of 5

Steps to the beach was the main selling point. We had 3 couples staying there - each with their own bedroom, bath and balcony. Appliances and electronics were state of the art. The living/dining/kitchen area was perfect for dining, playing games or watching games and Netflix. Some of the group had to work part of the time. the wifi was great! Of course, the beach (especially the sunsets) was the best part. The location was convenient to restaurants and shopping. We could not have asked for better hosts! We would not hesitate to return!

A Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for the month of February, 2015, and ten months later remembered to write a review. This unit had everything that we could want. Everything in the unit was new and of excellent quality. The owners were taking great care, and we appreciated thoughtful touches like fresh fruit and flowers on hand when we arrived. It is quiet and comfortable, a minute or two walk to the beach, and there are several good restaurants within short walks. Indian Rocks Beach is a great place to relax. Be sure to walk to the beach to watch the sun set over the Gulf and to listen to the playing of "Taps".

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week in this beautiful home and community. The owners are wonderful and made sure that all our needs were met. They had goodies waiting for us when we arrived and made sure to check in throughout the week. The condo is beautifully set up for more than one family. There were nine of us total (6 adults, 3 young children) that stayed and we had more than enough room.

The location to town, the beach, and the park is ideal. My boys loved that they could spend their day between the park and the beach and not have to drive any where to do that. Our last day we got to enjoy seeing many dolphins swimming out a little ways from the beach. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We will definitely look you up in the future when we choose to return to Florida.

Thanks again!!!!!
