About Sean Donoghue
My wife is from California and I am from Michigan. We met on a random road down the Pacific Coast Highway and the rest they say is history. We live in Tampa (just a short drive away) and are the proud parents of Finn who keeps us pretty busy.
Sean Donoghue purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Sean Donoghue chose Indian Shores
My wife and I have always felt connected to the water and after Finn was born we found ourselves the beach constantly. I had been coming to Indian Shores since I moved down in 1998 and fell in love with the laid back family atmosphere it had to offer. So after searching for nearly two years...we found Sunplace. We fell in love instantly and knew this is where we wanted to make our family memories together. Since our schedules never let us use it as much as we like...we wanted to share it with others...to let our guests get a better understanding of why we think this is one of the best places on earth! Enjoy!
What makes this Condo unique
A large majority of the gulf front condos are cookie cutter - two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a small balcony located in a huge building. We wanted to buy a property that had character and was welcoming to our family and friends. We believe this property is one of the most unique on the beach - offering a tremendous amount of privacy with all the modern conveniences. But don't take our word for it...come see for yourself!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The property was very nice with views from nearly every room. It was well stocked with anything you could possibly need during your stay and was in close proximity to shopping and restaurants.
We enjoyed the hot tub and just sitting out in the evening watching the dolphins swim.
Perfect Family Vacation
Our week staying at Sol Mate was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The condo was so clean and the decor just added to the whole relaxing beach experience. All the extras provided were very appreciated (beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, supplies/ amenities in the condo). The beach was never crowded and always clean. Seeing dolphins from the balcony every morning was amazing. We were also fortunate enough to see newly hatched baby sea turtles making their way to the ocean-what an awe inspiring bucket list experience! There are plenty of wonderful restaurants close by that have excellent food at reasonable prices. We never had a bad meal. The local shops are interesting and fun to visit. We did drive to John's Pass and Clearwater for a change of pace. My family of 5-a 21 year old daughter and 17 year old twin daughters - had a wonderful time in Indian Shores. We plan to return next summer and hope to stay in Sol Mate again! If you want a relaxing, family friendly vacation, this is the place!
Beautiful condo with AMAZING views!
Our family had a wonderful week at this beautiful condominium! The unit was very clean and welcoming and when we walked through the door it was exactly as shown in the photos. The decor and furnishings made this unit feel very special. This is not your average 3 bedroom condominium. It is extremely spacious with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We spent most of our time on the beach or balconies and really enjoyed the rooftop deck for sunsets and star gazing at night. The location was perfect and the beach was not too crowded. An easy walk or short drive to pretty much anything you need. Comfortable beds, cozy furniture and everything we needed for nights that we stayed in and cooked or grilled on the gas grill downstairs. Sean and his wife quickly got back to us for any questions that we had and left plenty of helpful information about the condo and area. Wonderful stay and we hope to be back again next year!
My new FAVORITE place!
Everything was outstanding! Very nice, high ceilings, rooftop hot tub, and love the artwork! We even brought granny and our pet this time and had plenty of room!! The location was perfect. Beautiful sunsets, a new patio , and new outdoor grill!!! We will return!
The condo was lovely and beach fantastic . Had a couple of restaurants in walking distance and a couple more delivered . All in all a great stay.
We had such a great time! The sunsets are amazing from the balcony or the very short walk to the beach. The condo is so convenient to many great restaurants and day trips. Thank you so much for sharing the place with others - we can't wait to go back!
