Better than home.....NO SNOW

Patty and I have been going to Indian Shores for a number of years, always staying on the Gulf Side, so this was a break from the norm for us. We were not disappointed ! Michelle was great to work with as was the rental co. The condo was extremely well appointed and clean. Quick walk across the road to beach. Pool is heated and pristine. Plenty of goodies in the condo, beach chairs, toys, even a fishing rod to use at the pier. Can't say enough good things about our stay, the condo or the owners. Sadly someone beat us to the dates we wanted this year. Again, thank you for letting us enjoy your slice of paradise.See yinz maybe next year.

Owner's reply:

Dan, you were such a pleasure to deal with! Thanks for the wonderful review. I'm sorry your dates weren't available. But I hope we can accommodate you and your wife again soon. I hope yinz have a mild winter this year!

We loved this place! Our arrival was in the wee hours of the morning on July 27 - 3 Palms was extremely accommodating in arranging for our key pickup. The condo is amazing. Everything you would ever need is there! The pool is extremely well maintained and fishing off the dock was a daily routine for our 3 kids. They even got to enjoy the company of a Manatee family for several hours one morning. The gorgeous beach is just across the road. We were able to see a turtles nest hatching, a dolphin very close up as well as numerous breathtaking sunsets! The condo's location is very convenient. We took day trips to Disney, Caladesi Island, Clearwater beach, Clearwater Aquarium & Fort Desoto State Park. We enjoyed the amazing restaurants that were all close by such as Salt Rock Grill, Crabby Bills, The Pub, PJ's, Keegan's and frequented John's Pass to enjoy dinner at Bubba Gumps and go for a walk on the boardwalk to browse the many shops and watch the dolphins play in the intercoastal. We will definitely be making a return visit sooner than later! Sincerely Lisa Sladek

EXCEPTIONAL....Feels just like home

This was our second year in staying at this condo. We absolutely LOVE this beautiful, very well-equipped condo. The unit is even nicer than the pictures make it seem. The owners have thought of everything to make your time there so enjoyable. We have stayed in many places over our years of going to Florida and this is by far the best!

My amazing vacation!!

I spent a lot of time researching condos in the Indian Shores Beach area. Choosing to stay at this condo was the best decision. The condo was completely stocked with every possible thing you can imagine or might need and then some. The condo was very nicely decorated and had amazing views from the balcony especially during sunset. It was just a walk across the street to the beach which was quiet, peaceful, relaxing and beautiful.The owners were extremely nice and helpful and I would highly recommend this condo. I will definitely come back.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for staying with us, Alex! We are glad you and Jesse loved it. We can't wait for your return!!

Home Away from Home

This is a beautiful condo. Very clean and well kept. Kitchen fully stocked with all of the essentials. Updated kitchen and baths. Along, with clean bath towels and bed sheets. A great surprise for us, was, sitting at the back dock and watching the dolphins swim buy every morning and evening. This condo is centrally located and is surrounded by great restaurants and many beach access points. Would stay here again!!

Owner's reply:

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you do come back! And the dolphins are awesome, aren't they?!

Just got home and ready to go back!

We just got home and I'm missing it already! This was our first time staying in a condo and we loved every moment of it. From the time we walked in we felt at home. We had everything we needed and more for a great vacation. My favorite was drinking my cup of coffee on the balcony watching the day begin. My girls loved the pool and the beach which was just a short walk away. My husband just loved to relax. Thank you so much for a great vacation!!

Owner's reply:

Awesome Rental

We rented this property for a week and I am so glag we did. Great location and everything we needed was in the unit. Fishing dock was great and the very short wak to the beach was nice. Michelle was so kind to make sure my daughter had a good fishing experience, she dropped off a new pole and some tackle on our first night, thanks Michelle!! The unit was very well kept and the patio was great for relaxing after a day in the sun. We had an awesome vacation and look forward to renting this property again!!

Terrific Location!

Thank you so much for letting us use your condo this past week while we were in Florida. Indian Shores was PERFECT. Quiet, laid back, and beautiful. The condo was very comfortable and well stocked. I'm already missing my usual morning nap-on-the-beach. We visited Clearwater and Pier 60, ate at Frenchy's, and Island Way Grill, Grilled chicken and steak at Fort DeSoto park, jet skied, snorkled, parasailed, saw dolphins, biked by the ocean, found a ton of shells, and enjoyed lounging on the beach when we were feeling lazy. It was a great get away, and you can expect a call next year when I'm looking for vacation again, or maybe in a couple weeks ;)

Owner's reply:

Great condo for a holiday.

This condo was very spacious, comfortable and well stocked with most things you'd need. It's within walking distance to the beach and the pool is small but quite nice. We certainly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to others.

Thank you so much for staying with us. We appreciate your feedback and hope we can accommodate you again!

This was our second stay and to show that this is a "well rounded property" .......despite being unseasonably cool for that time of year ....we still had a blast . We spent a lil less time on beach and more time dining at the variety of eateries and greatly enjoyed warmth and coziness of the condo . Having the HEATED POOL was definitely a plus during those chilly days ..........GREAT PROPERTY .....we will be back !!

Owner's reply:

Thanks for staying with us again! We love having you!

Thank You Michelle & Chad! Our long weekend at your condo at The Captain's Cove couldn't have been more perfect! Beautifully decorated; supplied with everything you could want in a rental; the beautiful beach just a short walk across the street ... we couldn't ask for more! And Lina loved the supply of kids books and beach toys in the bedroom! Thanks again for your attention to all the details that made our weekend the best ever!

We could not of had a better place to live and vacation in the interim of our relocation to our permanent home. We loved the place, the view, and all the amenities it provided. Great attention to details that made our stay such a comfortable and relaxing stay. This place is definitely tops and we thank you so much!

An amazing vacation deal, in a great area!

I had the opportunity to stay in this condo and was amazed beyond my expetations. The rental was fully furninshed, and very well decorated! The owners anticipated my needs, and exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed the charm of the Indian Shores area, and all the amenities that the area had to offer. I priced several other rental units and hotels in the area, and this rental was by far nicer, and a better value for my money. I will be back!
