Family getaway on the beach
Dale B A. from Norton, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
The stay at the condo was great. It is located right on the beach. The condo rooms were very nice and the beach didn't have a lot of people on it. We had three families in one condo and still had plenty of space. Thank you for making this family vacation a great get a way.

Beautiful location
Manuela K. from Jackson, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014
This condo is in a perfect location with easy access to everything. The unit itself was very nice with a perfect ocean view. I would rent it again in the future, it has everything that you need in a vacation rental. Waterfront Vacation Rental was really nice to deal with. There were no hassles getting into the unit. Overall it was a great experience for us.

Stayed for 14 days in April, 2014
The unit door had to be repaired. AC was spotty, but acceptable. Location was great. We had to evacuate due to lightning strike on 10th floor and we had two water main failures. There was NO property management assistance or even a "stop-by" to see if things were OK.

Not what we expected.
Debbie Z. from Silver lake, IN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
The location is great and the beds were ok. The condo is very dated and was not as clean as we would have liked. The elevators made a lot of noise and not all that clean. we have stayed in some really nice condo's so its just kinda what are you expecting. Everyone we came in contact with were very nice. Really nice that eating was so close. I guess overall I would give it a grade of a C.

Stayed for 56 days in January, 2014
This was the 4th year we stayed at sandcastle ll. We enjoy al the great restaurants in the area and being on the gulf. This condo was well equipped with everything we needed for our 2 month stay. A couple things we needed the property management got us. Only complaint the floors were real dirty mainly the carpet.

Staff doesnt know status of property
A guest from East Ware Ham, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013
The 2nd day of our stay we woke to find that the pool, hot tub and sunning area was closed and would not reopen until the last day of our stay. This was a problem when you have an 8 yr. old staying with you who has thought of nothing other than playing in the pool for MONTHS. This equals a very poor showing by the managment staff. ASSUME NOTHING FROM THESE FOLKS.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Waterfront Vacation Rentals Inc.
Thank you for your comments. Ourselves as the management company were not advised of the work being completed by the building association until the tenant called. Owner was not notified by the association either. Both pools on either side of the property were open for the tenants usage. Tenant seemed fine with this option. We are putting the teddy bear that was left behind in the mail for the tenant today.

Needs some updates.......
Chris K. from Brownsburg, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in October, 2013
I have stayed in several units in the Indian Shores area over the last 4 or 5 years. This unit in particular needs some updating. The bathroom light has some serious issues right now and had to be worked on while we were there. The carpet in the 3rd bedroom is also very worn and needs to be replaced sometime soon. The unit itself is not in bad shape. Just have a few areas above that need to be updated. I would also consider replacing the bathroom door to the shower as soon as possible. To see grime on it building up just shows they wear it has taken on.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Waterfront Vacation Rentals Inc.
Thank you for your comments. The owners work on a different area of the condo to upgrade each time they come down. The light was fixed the following day as the problem was reported at 3:30pm on a Sunday. It was repaired on Monday.

Perfect timing
Chris W. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013
I had promised to take my daughter and her best friend to Florida in early June months ago. I was extremely happy when I found this unit available on such short notice. The entire process from booking to check in/out was seamless.The unit was immaculate and the beach was beautiful, without the overwhelming crowds of Clearwater. We are already trying to plan another trip and have recommended this location to many of my friends..

Great Location - Private - Relaxing
Kristi S. from Owasso, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013
We have a family of 4 with 2 adult children 19 and 21. It was a great experience. The location is absolutely perfect. Very quite -- we never heard people in the other condos. The condo was very spacious and open. We loved the view as this property is right on the ocean. The pool, jacuzzi and grounds are maintained daily. The condo was a perfect size - the owner put in a new dryer while we were there. Everything is modern and very clean. You can tell the owners have done a nice job of updating this property. It felt like home. Future recommendation upgrades: New Shower Stall Door to the Master Bedroom and TV in the third bedroom. We would absolutely love to come back to this property. I don't have room to say enough nice things about the staff at Waterfront Vacation Rentals. They were most helpful with the decisions we made concerning water activities and excursions.

A great place for a family vacation.
A guest from Wallacetown, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2013
We had a very nice vacation. Indian shore is a well kept community and the Condo is right on the beautiful beach. Although there are no ?Chain? restaurants near the condo you really don?t need them as The Pub right across the street offers a wide variety of choices for very reasonable prices. No Complaints about the management company. Would also like to mention ?Madeira Beach Garage?. We needed some repairs done on our Van and their service was excellent.

Karen A R. from Ramsey, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
The weather wasn't as warm as we hoped for, but getting up early every morning and having coffee to the sound of waves hitting the beach was wonderful. Great place to stay, beach was great and the area was fun and close to lots of things to do. Would love to go back some day!

Vacation at Sand Castle 2
A guest from West Plains, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
Our 3 bed room 2 bath condo had plenty of room for 5 adults and 1 child. The view of the ocean was perfect from our balcony. Our stay was pretty marvelous considering hurricane Issac was suppose to hit the day we arrived.We were all so excited that the sun shined everyday. And there was not even any rain all week. We really enjoyed the fact that we never had to drive far to see a new adventure, shop, or eat. Maybe some day we can go back.

A Great Place to Stay
David C B. from Crosspool, Sheffield recommends this property.
Stayed for 16 days in August, 2012
Our vacation was excellent. Indian Shores is a brilliant location, both from the condo looking directly on to the beach and the Gulf and also from the viewpoint of places to eat; Salt Rock Grill and The Pub were our favourites. Also, the Waterfront management company were excellent from the time of booking the vacation to our return to the UK.

Our unit, 2505 was not very clean. There was mildew in the showers. We were not sure if the linens on the beds were clean. The sliding glass door in living room would not lock and was difficult to open. Kitchen counters were filthy.

so much hope for a cool place, but no
A guest from Snohomish, WA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 11 days in May, 2012
I give it 3 stars because the view from the condo is fantastic, and overall our vacation was great. BUT, to start out with location, it was fine for us, but its kind of far from stores and general public, but some people like that. The biggest downer is that the amenities did not work properly. The dishwasher made the dishes even dirtier, the 2 vaccuum cleaners were broken, the drier took forever to dry clothing. Also, there werent enough towels, so we called and they did bring a few more sets. One thing is for sure, this isn't a 'home away from home' condo. Everything was cheap and uncomfortable, from the mattresses and linens, to the dishes and pots and pans. There was only one or two rolls of toilet paper for each bathroom and one roll roll of paper towels. The carpet is dirty (along with not being able to vaccuum it). We will not be staying in these properties because for paying so much, there is just too much that is unsatisfactory. Sorry

Response from Waterfront Vacation Rentals Inc.
King mattress in the master bedroom was new Aug. 2011 and the 2nd bedroom with the queen bed was new April 2012. Both of very high quality. The 2 double beds will be replaced before too long. Tenants receive paperwork prior to their arrival telling them they must provide their own toilet paper and paper towels. There is only enough to get them started. Pots and pans were new June 2011. Of average, sufficient quality.

Perfect Indian Shores Location for a Family Vacation
A guest from Kingston, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2011
We enjoyed the wonderful location of this roomy and efficiently designed condo. It was perfect for a couple with three teenagers.The WIFI was appreciated by the kids when we turned in after a day of exploring. The sunsets from the roomy balcony were gorgeous. The pool and hottub were clean and kept at a great temperature. The beach was lovely and nice for jogs as was the Gulf Blvd with the safe walking and biking lanes. The condo is within walking distance of several affordable locally owned restaurants and pubs and within easy driving distance to a grocery store; as well as Clearwater, John's Pass, St. Pete's and Tampa. We feel that this was a great value and we would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends!

Disappointing Condo and Property in charming community and beautiful beach
Lisa H. from Cummings, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011
Upon arrival the exterior of the building-awnings, paint, interior elevators- fading, worn, dirty. Our unit was not up to date nor clean. Our shower was small, old glass door that did not shut,covered in mold, interior tiles cracked and grout was dirty. The couches in the living room were worn to the point that seems were torn, the upholstery was dirty, and food crumbs were present on arrival. The kitchen was out dated, but clean. The carpet was worn and dirty showing many stains. I called the property manager to see if there were any other untis available, but due to the 4th holiday there were no other units available. I reported the above reasons for my disappointment. The agent replied that I should be satisfied because a NFL football player had stayed their prior to my arrival and he was satisfied with the condo. This was not a proper response to my concerns. I travel frequently to Destin,Fl. and pay the same rate for the condo and have NEVER had a unit like I received. Your owner needs to update/clean unit before you continue to keep it in your rental program. My family made the most of the beautiful area, but I will never use this property again.

Needs serious TLC
A guest from Ackworth, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011
Loved the area. Condo location was great. Halfway between Clearwater and St. Pete. Very quiet. Beach was wonderful. Guests were friendly. Pub resturant across street very convenient but food was overpriced and quality not that good. Better resturants in Clearwater and St. Pete. Condo building has seen it's better days, in need of a lot of TLC. Pool was a pool and thats about it--we stayed at the beach. Condo unit was small, bathrooms needed remodel--moldy tile is unacceptable. Mattresses were the worst I have ever slept on!! Unit also needed a good cleaning. Furniture was worn but still funtional.. Overall a great time, you cant beat area. Great condo if your there for the beach only.
