About Steve & Sharon

We are a family of four from Philadelphia, now living in Maryland and working as civil servants for the US Navy. Our oldest is away in college and youngest is entering high school. We are so excited to be able to own a condominium in the beautiful shores of the gulf coast of Florida and be able to make it available to other great families for their dream vacation or extended stay.

Steve & Sharon purchased this condo in 2015

Why Steve & Sharon chose Indian Shores

We discovered the gulf coast since we have family members that have lived in the local area. During our visits we fell in love with the Indian Shores and Indian Rocks Beach communities.

What makes this condo unique

This condo has the best of both worlds; spectacular waterfront views and a pier with boat slips on the intercoastal waterway and access to the gulf beaches.

average rating of 4.85 based on 20 reviews

Beautiful views of the wildlife right outside the slider. Gulf a short walk across the street.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and extremely well appointed condo. We enjoyed the pool and our walks on the Gulf. The balcony has a southern exposure which is perfect when the temperature or wind get a little imposing. The views through the slider are awesome all day. Located in a perfect area for access to Clearwater Beach or Saint John's Pass. It is also private and quiet. It's just far enough off Gulf Blvd to eliminate the noise completely. The place is loaded with creature comforts; will definitely return. We give this place our highest recommendation!

The best

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website don't do this property justice. Its much better in person. It was clean and Steve and Sharon have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. It was child friendly since we had a 2yr old with us. It's a 5min walk to the beach. The place was perfect clean and organized. The beds were comfortable and the view was to breath taking. Covered parking is a bonus especially with the rain that pops up on summer afternoons. This place is amaizing can say enough about it and will be back soon.

Unbeatable entertainment provided by nature

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in #207 of Captains Cove for 3 months ( Jan--March 2017) and we could not be happier. The view from the balcony is exactly as shown in the picture. At all times of the day you could see and hear a variety of birds, mullet jumping and dolphins swimming. We watched a young osprey catch his daily meal and the resident heron always showed up in hopes of getting a handout when we fished off the dock.

The master bedroom was well appointed and bed very comfortable. The beds in the guest room were comfortable as well but the bunk bed/trundle bed set up wasn't as handy for older adults.

We really appreciated having all the dishware, glassware, silverware and kitchen utensils available as well as the in unit washer/dryer.

The best bonus of this unit is it's south facing direction which provides sunshine nearly all day. Accessing the beach is no problem and it is also possible to walk to dining options and the library.

Only wish is that there was some place to lock up a kayak or bikes.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this lovely condo! We vacation in this area yearly, but never found a better stocked unit.The beds were very comfortable and everything was so clean. Parking is covered and right below the building. The pool's temperature was perfect and we had it to ourselves most days. We enjoyed the most beautiful sunsets right across the street, on the beach. I enjoyed collecting many beautiful shells there. The view from the balcony and living room was amazing! It felt like you were right on the water. We saw so much wildlife, including manatee with a baby, dolphin, shark circling a school of fish, horseshoe + small crabs, and a sea otter. We enjoyed the blue heron,osprey, sandpiper, egret, pelican, ibis, cormorant, and even a roseate spoonbill. Boats of all sizes and people on kayaks + paddle boards zoomed by. Steve + Sharon totally care about their renters. They gave me their cell #'s and got right back to me when I had questions. They were so friendly and generous to let us and our little dog, share their beautiful condo. We will definitely stay again! Thanks again Steve + Sharon !!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We looked for a location for our vacation that would be peaceful and close to the water and the beach. We found the perfect location. Steve and Sharon's condo in Captains Cove provided us with a luxurious base from where we could enjoy all the offerings on the Gulfcoast. The view from the living room and balcony is awesome, we saw dolphins swimming by, fish leaping, herons and Pelicans hunting for fish and many boats travelling up and down the waterway. The beach is right across the street and there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance or a very short drive. The condo had everything we needed to enhance our stay including two massive TV's and beach chairs, towels, parasol and trolley for the short trip to the sandy beach. We visited John's Pass, Treaure Island for the sand sculptures and fireworks, St Pete's for Ribfest and Huey Lewis and the News and Pier 60 at Clearwater to watch the sunset. Steve and Sharon were a pleasure to deal with whilst making our arrangements. If you are looking for a peaceful, beautiful vacation rental with miles of white sandy beaches right across the street but with lively Clearwater and St Petes just 30 minutes drive away then look no further, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Steve and Sharon's property during September and had a wonderful, relaxing time.

The property has exquisite views over the intracoastal waterway and is setback from the road so the only thing you can hear is the passing boats and wildlife. The beach is just across the road making it easy to enjoy an early morning walk or an evening sunset.

The property was well appointed and had all the amenities you could need.
