Owner Info

John & Tina Altieri

John & Tina Altieri

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Our family moved to Florida from New York in 1992. Before purchasing this unit, we scoped most beaches from the east to the west coast of Florida. When we found Indian Rocks Beach and walked into this unit, we knew we found our dream home away from home. The views, the turquoise gulf, the sugary white sand, the building itself had everything we wanted and more. The best part of this location is the versatility -- it is private enough to just "hide away" and enjoy beach living at it's best, or explore some of Florida's main attractions. This location has it all.

We cannot put into words the beauty and peace that surrounds you in this vacation hideaway. We chose the name Footprints Vacation Hideway because that is exactly what it is. Each day promises a new experience. Not only the beautiful white sandy beaches and turquoise water, but the magnificent sunsets and sealife which are seen from both balconies are unbelievable! Last time we were there we saw a manatee - every time we are there we see dolphins both on the gulf and the intracoastal. We truly love our home away from home and extend a warm welcome to all our guests. We try our best to make it feel like home away from home and many of our guests return year after year. We would love to answer any questions you may have about our condo. It is truly our dream beach home and a tremendous blessing which we would like to share with others. We look forward to hearing from you and taking your reservation so your family can be the next to put your Footprints in the Sand.

Why this property? Our family has grown since we purchased this "home away from home" and to this day our favorite features are exactly the same. To name a few - the magnificent views from almost every room in this unit; the proximity to everything - literally, steps away from the gulf waters. You can see the kids now grandchildren, building sand castles on the beach while sipping cocktails on the balcony. (age appropriate of course).
