I’ll start with the few positives. The location is outstanding, the view from the screened corner balcony was beautiful, the condo floors are all tiled and the beach is quiet.

Unfortunately, the owners of the condo clearly are out to make a dollar rather than to provide an enjoyable experience. While the rental advertisement lists all of the expected amenities, the reality leaves much to be desired given the rental price. Most of the appliances are old and in several instances rusted. The clothes washer and dryer constantly had to be coaxed to work. The coffee pot was so old and filthy that we bought an exact replacement (for $20) and left it as a donation for the next renter. Two of the four beach chairs found in a closet were badly rusted and broken. The other two were the very uncomfortable $10 variety. Tools and construction material were being stored in both accessible closets and the utility room. The balcony furniture was marginal but the decrepit and filthy lounger should have been thrown out long ago. Surprisingly, the beach umbrella was fine. Both bathroom shower areas need serious renovation as black mould and rust were evident. A hand towel rack in one of the bathrooms fell off the wall when lightly touched. Upon inspection , clearly it had not been installed properly as the wall bracket was mounted sideways and the towel rack had been balanced in placed on the bracket so as to appear to be useable. The kitchen ceiling needs replacement as it too is rusted and shows serious discolouration above the stove. Much of the furniture has broken corners and rust. Internet speed is the slowest I’ve ever experienced measured at under 2.5 megabit per second. Almost no equipment or supplies are provided to clean the unit during our month long stay. Again, we had to buy cleaning material. I could go on but suffice to say we were very disappointed with this rental. Clearly the owners need to make major upgrades if they expect to continue to charge what we paid to rent this unit.

Excellent Accommodation in a Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

"Spacious and comfortable accommodation in an idyllic location. Spectacular views from the large balcony along the beach, which is immediately in front.

The apartment is fully fitted with all appliances working well.

Contrary to the previous comment, we found the huge master bed to be extremely comfortable - firm, yes, but just right for us!

Excellent large swimming pool, which as with all the shared facilities was immaculately maintained.

One negative point - the initial access information supplied by the Rental Agent was incorrect leading to an hour of stress until we finally got the keys - double check any information supplied by Waterfront Rentals.

However, this did not detract from three wonderful and memorable weeks.

Hugh and Jean"

Comfortable condo, excellent location

  • 4 of 5

This condo's location is the best part - right on the beach, corner unit in a quiet part of Indian Rocks Beach. We listened to the waves every night and loved that part of our stay. The island is pretty low key (lots of families and retirees), with a nice selection of restaurants to choose from. Not a lot of activities on the island, but it's not far to Clearwater or Tampa.

The unit itself is comfortable, but rather dated. Although one bathroom and the kitchen have been remodeled, the rest of the unit is older and sparsely decorated. This is clearly a rental property and kept pretty basic. Our only real complaint was with the beds - very hard mattresses in both rooms and an upgrade here would be very welcome.
