This holiday was the best we have ever had in a long time. The condo was exactly as described. It was very clean and had all the amenities of home. We had the best weather. We experienced very clean beaches and beautiful sunsets. The grounds around the condo were landscaped well. Pool and spa areas very clean.

There are lots of restaurants within walking distances and a great ice cream/coffee cafe right across the street.

We definitely will return.

Condo was beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We love Indian Shores and go there several times a year. We rented this condo for a week and had a GREAT time. Plenty of room and amenities. We had a problem with stove burners not working so it was difficult to cook. We did report it and someone was supposed to fix it, not sure if they ever did. Parking is somewhat of an issue. There is only 1 parking space for the 3-bedroom condo. We had our children coming to visit so we had 4 vehicles to park. The rental agency was kind enough to let us parking in their parking lot down the street and we would drive down and pick them up and bring to condo. Overall, very good experience. Condo is very nice, very well decorated. Beach is absolutely gorgeous with amazing sunsets.

Owner's Response: Karen, I am glad that your vacation was great. I apologize that you found parking an issue. The condo does have one designated parking spot and several visitor areas as well. These are available on a first come basis. I hope it wasn't to inconvenient for you to commute to where you were able to park your cars. We found that the connectors to the elements to the stove were not fully pushed in to connect to the element after housekeeping cleaned the burners.Everything is working presently. Thank you for staying with us and please keep us in mind for future travel. Regards, Elaine

First time to the area. Condo was great. No issues. Room was clean and ready on time. Everyone was easy to deal with. Lots of kitchen utensils and beach supplies. Only complaint outside grills could be better. Places to eat nearby and good ice cream across the street. Hope to go back

Owner's Response: Thanks Josh for the great review. I am glad your holiday was awesome. What is not to love being able to sit and watch the rolling aqua blue waters, maybe catching a dolphin or two swim by or walking those crystal white beaches. The BBq grills are being replaced in August as we had brought this forward to the board of directors back in early June. We hope you consider us again in the near future, we would love to have you as guests again. Regards, Elaine

Great Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Customer service is fantastic with this unit! My husband and I have been visiting IRB for the past couple of years and this summer we introduced the rest of our family to it. We had 5 people total and were looking forward to the 3 bedrooms; however, one of the bedrooms was very tiny and had there been 2 people staying in that room, it wouldn't have worked. Fortunately, she didn't mind, but may be something to consider if you have 3 couples. Perfect for 2 couples and a single or child's room.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kelley for your feedback. I am glad to hear that your vacation was awesome. The third bedroom is a bit small, but it does have a queen size bed in it for added comfort. I hope this doesn't deter you from returning. Please keep us in mind for any future travels. Regards, Elaine

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in this lovely condo on Indian Shores. The beach is unbelievably long with beautiful sand for walking, jogging, and swimming. The pool and hot tub are also very inviting and loungers and chairs are abundantly available. We stayed for one week with our grandchildren and they had a wonderful time playing in the pool and on the beach. The unit is well stocked with beach chairs, toys, etc - everything you need for a fun day on the beach! We also made good use of the ping pong table, enjoyed the fabulous ice cream store right across the street and the miniature golf course nearby was a definite bonus!

We spent our second week at the condo with our neighbours and appreciated the vast array of good restaurants nearby and proximity to Treasure Island and other interesting places. The unit is well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc to make meal preparation easy. We particularly loved having morning coffee on the large balcony overlooking the beach and a glass of wine watching the sun set over the ocean. The condo is immaculate, comfortable, and decorated in a lovely beach theme. We found the location to be a great fit for children and adults alike.

We would definitely love to return in the near future and highly recommend this accommodation.

The views from the balcony are breath taking and very relaxing, wether it's having a good cup of java or relaxing with a nice merlot. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your return visit in the near future. Regards, Elaine
