The condo was clean and very well furnished. The beds are comfortable, and the sheets and pillows felt wonderful. The couch is cozy, and each bedroom has a TV. There were plenty of dishes, beach towels, bath towels, toilet paper, cookware, soap, and laundry detergent for the washer and dryer. There were beach toys, fishing poles, and chairs available for use as well. The balcony was spacious, covered, and provided a perfect beachfront view of the ocean. The condo building had a honor system library in the rec area and a ping pong table. The pool was very nice and clean, and there were plenty of pool chairs and umbrella tables.
The location was a surprise for us, as we've never been to Indian Shores. No need to drive once you're there! There were multitudes of local restaurants, pubs, beach shops, ice cream shops, and drug stores all within easy walking distance of the condo. This was great for our older teens, who spent much of their time visiting the nearby places while hubby and I hung out on the beach. The bus access is also very simple, and made frequent stops all along Gulf Blvd. The kids took the bus and visited some of the shops further down. St. John's Pass is very close and also on the bus route.
The condo is directly on the beach.
The beautiful, clear water was as warm as bath water. It was wonderful! The beach access was perfect. No huge dunes to climb over to get to the beach. The beach was flat and there was a nice and very short path leading there. The pool was beach side and was a super short and easy walk from the beach, as well as from the condo.
The only issue we experienced was parking. There is 1 parking space assigned per condo unit. There are some guest spots in the lot, but only a few, so they were always full. We didn't have a place for both of our cars. However, the condo owner arranged for secure parking for us at a business located right across the street. It was so close that we could see our car every time we went out the door to head down to the beach, and it was really not much further than of we'd parked in the lot. It worked out perfectly and alleviated our "parking stress"!
Overall this was a great place to stay and to visit. You won't be disappointed!
