  • Perfect for us!

    "My family (wife, daughter 17, and 2 dogs of about 40 lbs each) stayed here over Christmas while visiting family in the area. The description and pictures from the listing are a good representation of the unit, though it's even better in person (I was a rock star in my family for finding this place!) For us, this was perfect: great views of the intracoastal, wonderful balcony, nice pier, large and well appointed kitchen, large bedrooms, good bathrooms, and living areas. The garage was a bonus surprise, with a lot of play toys to use (beach toys, beach chairs, fishing gear, etc). The location is great; off the road so we couldn't hear road traffic, little boat noise, we felt very safe in the location and whole complex in general, and there are plenty of things to do both north and south along the beach road. Communication with the owner was great (all that we needed to know and not too much), the codes to get in were set up just right so we didn't need to check in with some management office that was only open certain times of the day (great because we got delayed and showed up at 1am), and we received our deposit back within the 2 weeks after our stay (just as the owner said we would). The area was large enough that we had about 13 others over for dinner one night, and we easily managed that between the dining area, living area, and outdoor balcony, though there is limited parking for guests. If you or your dogs have issues going up stairs, you need to look somewhere else. This will certainly be the first place I look at next time we go back....... as long as the rest of you haven't booked it - which was the only reason I didn't want to write this review! :) For dog owners: you will need to talk to Bruce about your pets before he approves you, but this is not a big deal; he's very nice and easy about this (he just needs to make sure the condo rules are followed with pet size). There is a decent size yard next to the pier but the dogs have to be on leash (Bruce made us away of this before); if having to keep your dogs on leash every time they wanted/needed to go outside and down the stairs, and back up the stairs, etc is a problem for you (all the time), you may want to look elsewhere. Also dogs are not allowed (leash or not) on this entire strip of beach. So not many good places for long dog walks. I really doubt we would have found anything else on the beach island that could have been better for dogs, but I just wanted you to be aware of this."

  • Great Vacation Property!

    "We loved the condo! Sized just right for our family of 5. Close proximity to shopping, yet far enough away that it was quiet. The beach was awesome!"

  • My Third Time!

    "This is the 3rd time I have rented this condo. I keep saying I want to try somewhere else, but I keep coming back to Sandcastle I and Indian Shores! I've only been home a few weeks and I am already looking to book again for next year. The condo is clean, well-equipped and Helene is great to work with! Great views of the gulf and the pool. We love Tropical Ice Cream, Slyce Pizza Bar and the Frog Pond restaurant. Highly recommend!"

  • Great condo, just as described and pictured

    "Communication with the owner was perfect and very professional. No problems with the rental and everything was just as described and pictured. The property was very relaxed as it was perhaps 25-50% full when we visited. Pool was cleaned daily, chairs arranged each evening. Property and condo were very clean. We saw stingrays in the surf and daily sightings of dolphins making their way through. Kids were able to practice their snorkeling in the pool prior to the Gulf. The pool was a nice break from the surf and most of the kids in the condo were seen using both. The fishing wasn't so good but it didn't keep people from trying. Two sea turtles found the beach to be an acceptable place to lay eggs while we were there and were marked by the daily turtle patrol We were able to walk across the street to rent a boat for the day and took a trip up to Caladesi Island and down to Johns Pass. Crabby Bills restaurant was our favorite go-to restaurant both for atmosphere and food. The furniture was acceptable and normal beach condo quality. Even with A/C on, we could hear the surf and waves while we slept. The property was nice enough and had enough amenities that we didn't look at emails or watch TV the whole week, and that was a first for my family. While the kids were catching up on their sleep, we drank coffee on the porch and watched people and the surf below. All in all a great property. Good location away from the busy areas with everything you need nearby. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to friends and would certainly rent again. Thanks for sharing your second home with us."
