About Rich Ulrich
My wife, kids and I live 5 miles from the property location. If there are ever any issues with the unit we are less than 10 minutes away to come help out. We've lived in the area for over 25 years and have many great recommendations to fill your days....or you can just relax by the pool or beach like we do many days.
Rich Ulrich purchased this Condo in 1998
Why Rich Ulrich chose Pinellas County
We bought this condo in 1997. After our family grew larger we needed a little more room. We decided to keep the unit and use it as rental property in 2005. Driftwood Sands only has 45 units, which makes for a nice, quiet spot to enjoy a month on the beach or longer.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy a direct view of the beach and the nightly, unpredictable and fascinating sunsets.
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
As always a great staycation for us. Great location and access to the beach
Third year renting this unit and it fits our lifestyle perfectly
Loved everything about it can't wait to come back,close to everything,great restaurants beautiful beach!
property is always well maintained. And the views are breath taking.
We think that the fact we have rented the same condo for 12 years speaks for itself. This is as close to paradise as you can get. The owners are great people and take excellent care of the condo.. We would highly recommend this property.
great beach front condo
We have traveled to Indian Rocks beach in the past to visit family, so the area was familiar. The condo is right on the beach. Mornings can be coffee and breakfast watching the beach walkers. It just takes a few minutes to exit down the stairs to the short access path. Owners storage has many beach chairs, sand toys, umbrellas, also a big tire wagon to carry all items. The kitchen is modern and has all appliances one would need. Our 4 kids, each shared one of the two bedrooms, since most of the time is spent out with family or the beach, the rooms worked well. Master bedroom was large with large closet, shower and two separate sinks. Hope to return in the future.
Great condo. Great view.
We spent Thanksgiving here and has a wonderful time. The condo is beachfront. You can lie in bed and look at the waves.
Very secure building, and a private parking spot too.
Thank you Rich and Barb, we loved it.
