Recent Indian Rocks Beach reviews

  • Nice condo in a great location

    "Great location, very close to the beach, restaurants, bike rentals, bakery, and so on. This unit is an "inside" unit, so the only windows are: one in the bedroom facing Gulf Blvd and the sliding glass doors on the opposite end facing the beach. No windows along the left or right sides, though that didn't bother us. The beds very comfortable and the furniture in good shape. There's a George Foreman style electric griddle on a pedestal out on the balcony. It worked great for hot dogs, burgers and Reubens. There is a TV, but it's quite old with a poor picture and muffled sound. There are no premium movie channels, though that wasn't a big deal, as we brought our Roku box and plugged it into the router which is sitting on top of the TV. If you want to do the same, you should know that there is no HDMI port on the TV, only the old style composite and component jacks. We had to buy an adapter ($38 at RadioShack) as we only had an HDMI cable for our Roku. As others have mentioned, there appears to be no sound insulation between the floors. We heard every step from the unit above. Overall, the unit was clean and in very good shape, with the exception of a couple of major items. First, there are two sliding glass doors (with a fixed one in the middle). This is nice for those days when you can turn off the A/C and open the sliders. Unfortunately, one of the two sliding screens was missing and the other one had no wheels so it was difficult to slide open. The other item, and my biggest complaint, was that when we received the check-in instructions around a week before check-in, it included the following note: The thermostat CANNOT be set below 72°. In most cases, this will cause the coils to freeze over, rending the system inoperable. If the thermostat is set below 72°, guests will be responsible for repairs and/or loss of their security deposit. Having made the reservation a year in advance, I was quite upset to receive that information a week before check-in. To pay this kind of money for a place in Florida and be told when it's too late to do anything about it that the air conditioner doesn't work properly borders on misrepresentation in my opinion. It left a very sour taste in my mouth which is a shame, as this was otherwise a good rental. As it turned out, 72 was fine during the day, but not cool enough for sleeping—for me, anyway. There is a ceiling fan in each bedroom, which helped."

  • Best Vacation Ever!!

    "We had an amazing time at this cottage! We are a family of five with 1 extra & all had room. The ocean is so close! Beaches were not crowded. It is about 2 hours to Walt Disney World & even closer to Busch Gardens, Tampa Bay Rays stadium & Sea World. I loved this place & we will definitely be back!"

  • Beautiful home and perfect location for a relaxing vacation!

    "We spent a week at this beautiful town home 8/14-8/21/16. It appeared to be newly remodeled and professionally decorated! We loved the space it provided for our 2 families with 5 children. The main floor had a large living room with plenty of seating, a well-equiped full size kitchen with large island, one bedroom with a king size bed, and a separate full bathroom. The upstairs had a huge master bedroom with large en-suite bathroom, a very large bedroom with 2 queen beds, another bedroom with en-suite full bathroom, a main hall full bathroom, and full size washer and dryer. Balconies off the living room and master bedroom provided beautiful views of the gulf and sunset. Parking spaces were provided underneath the building and there was a locker with beach chairs, umbrellas and floats. We split time between the pool and the beach each day. The pool is shared by the adjacent town home as well as a 9 unit complex, but we never saw anybody else use it. The beach was maybe a 50' walk past the pool along a sandy path. The gulf was warm and calm, and multiple dolphins swam past daily! From a listing in local information provided by the home owners, we rented double kayaks and paddle boards, which the shop immediately delivered and later picked up. Because we rented in early afternoon for 24 hours, we were able to use them the following morning as well. Everyone was able to participate--picture a 4 yo and 5 yo heading out together in the kayak!--and had a great time. We ate most breakfasts and lunches at the house, then went out to dinner every night. There were plenty of restaurants along Gulf Blvd to choose from, acknowledging eclectic varieties of pizza at Slyce and good seafood at Guppys. We had a wonderful time! There were just enough bath towels at the house for everyone, but there were no beach towels! Preferring to shower with a clean towel after being at the beach all day, as presumably most people would, we had to buy ourselves beach towels. We also had to purchase toilet paper, Kleenex, soap and garbage bags, which we did not expect. Luckily there is typical shopping (grocery, Target, etc.) merely minutes away. Also note that the main level bedroom was warm, especially when closed, being the only bedroom without a ceiling fan. Overall, we absolutely loved the home and its proximity to the beach and amenities! It was a relaxing week and we can't wait to go back!"
