We had a great time.
Property was just as listed. We only had one issue and it was taken care of quickly. Dahlia was a terrific landlord for the 5 days we were there. Definitely would love to stay again.

Wonderful Property
As an experienced Vrbo user and owner this property is as advertised. They had many things within the condo that makes it so easy to fly to the location and not be missing anything. The beach is very close and Indian shores is very walkable and bike friendly. The area was much less busier than Clearwater, and still close enough to drive to to spend the day if you wanted to. Both aquariums (Clearwater and Tampa) were great stops for us. Lots of dining choices and many took reservations. The condo was great and Dalia helpful and attentive. We would stay in the area again in the future and would recommend this condo.

Great location close to beach
We had great communication with owner throughout the week. She sent us a list of places to check out according to our communication prior to our arrival and even sent us suggestions on a rainy day. Condo was very clean and well-stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We used the grilling area quite a bit, and the pool was nice on the days it was too windy for the beach! Nice central location for day trips to St Petersburg, Tampa or Clearwater. We spotted quite a bit of wildlife too - saw dolphins, manatees and rays swimming in the intracoastal! We were able to hear people walking around in apartment above, but wasn't really an issue for us. The layout is great with the sleeping areas away from the main living area. Thank you for letting us stay at your beach condo!!

Great Condo in Indian Shores
We really enjoyed our week in this condo. It was more spacious than most and had a large master bedroom and large master bath. The second bedroom was decent sized as well with three beds in it. Both bedrooms had plenty of storage space available in dressers and closets, with the master having a walk-in closet. The kitchen was well appointed and my kids loved sitting in the barstools and eating at the counter. The living room and bedrooms all had good TV with cable, as well as Roku's and DVD players for streaming and video options. My favorite spot in the place ended up being the front patio, which overlooks Gulf Blvd. and faces west towards the gulf with a sliver of a gulf view and gets a lot of sun in the afternoon and evening. There's another patio facing to the rear/east of the building directly off of the master bedroom, so this was also a good option to relax on if you wanted a quieter experience from the passing traffic on the roadway, or to avoid the late-day sun. This condo complex is only four buildings, with four units in each building, This condo is on the first floor of its building, with the first floor being elevated over the carport parking underneath, so really feels like a second floor. This condo is on the street-side half of the complex rather than the intracoastal half, but it is a very short and easy walk to get to the back half of the property where there is another great area to sit at and get the morning sunrise and watch the birds and boats go by. A few things to know about this condo which some may consider a negative, but didn't bother my family at all. One, it does sit close to the street on Gulf Blvd., so there is some traffic noise. We found it to be pretty quiet in the overnight hours though. Second, there is another condo unit directly above this one, so you do hear those occupants walking around at times and flushing toilets. Lastly, the master bathroom tub is a jetted jacuzzi type of tub which is great if you want to use it, but if you're just looking to take a regular shower the host's directions suggest you use the other common bathroom which has a regular tub/shower setup. Most importantly to most, this condo is in the perfect location for beach access. It is about a two minute walk from the front door to the sand. The beach equipment storage room was very well stocked. Dalia is a fantastic host who stayed in touch the entire time. We highly recommend her and this property.

Very nice and lots of room
Had a great experience this year it was everything you said it was. It was convenient having the washer and dryer in the room. Last year you changed rooms on us said you upgraded but room was too small and no washer and dryer. So I’m definitely a happy customer this year
