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).

Footprints was the perfect place for our family vacation. The setting is spectacular! Sunrises, sunsets, sugary soft sand and a swimming pool steps away from the spacious 3 bedroom condo. Everything you need for a very comfortable stay is provided. The owners were very friendly and attentive and made you feel at home in theirs. We will definitely be returning!

Thank you Judi. It was a pleasure hosting you. All my tenants should be like you. You may come back to your home away from home anytime Best Regards, John Altieri
My husband and I stumbled upon this place one year and fell in love! Perfect size, perfect location. The views are amazing! The condo is well maintained and inviting! The last time i went in 2019, my husband had passed away a few months prior. But he had already booked it for vacation. I decided to go one last time and am so glad I did! the owners are very sweet and caring and make you feel right at home! I hope to be able to return someday!

Most wonderful place
This location is amazing - the beach is on your doorstep!! John and Tina (owners) are wonderful and literally make you feel at home. There is everything here that you could possibly need for a stay in paradise. We did our grocery shopping and that was it! If you want to go out for a meal, there are great places in walking distance. The unit was clean, bright and organized. On-site parking was great and the building secure. We cannot say enough about this place and the owners. We are already talking about going back!!
