A friend and myself stayed at this unit April 20th - 23rd and we were very pleased . Unit very clean, stocked with essentials and cozy with a impeccable view of the ocean. Sunsets are amazing and I'd definitely stay at this unit again.

Denise, I appreciate you coming, making memories and leaving your review. I do realize that people spend a good sum of money to stay there, and I don't want them disappointed. I want them back. With the high number of repeat guests that I have, it speaks for itself; everyone LOVES it there. I'll be looking forward to hosting you again next time. --Joyce

Thank you Sal for being a wonderful guest. It's great to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. My place is not your typical unit with 6 plates, 6 glasses and 6 forks. I do provide many extras that other units do not have like beach chairs, a cooler, grapefruit spoons, crock pot, George Foreman grill, and beach towels to name a few. I will be looking forward to hosting you next time. --Joyce
Peaceful, clean, and well appointed.
We stayed for 5 nights in mid November, 2021. The condo was very clean and comfortable and had fantastic views of the gulf from both the living room and patio. The unit owner (actually his sister Joyce) was extremely helpful with any concerns. A helpful hint for future visitors-the keylock box for all of these rentals are located in the ground floor parking area on the south wall. We would definately return to this location!

Very attentive unit owner
My family and I came to Indian Shores as part of a family reunion that was rescheduled from December 2020. Joyce is wonderful to work with, we appreciated the flexibility and understanding when we needed to cancel due to Covid. It is clear that Joyce is very attentive to the condition of the unit, very clean, well maintained, and very well equipped. We received a call from Joyce on day 2 to make sure everything was as expected, quite impressive. We will certainly book this unit again for our next trip to Indian Shores.

Calm and relaxing
Just returned home from a 5 night stay and have to say it was probably one of the most relaxing vacations I've had in Florida! The area atmosphere was relaxed, the condo was extremely clean and had everything and anything you could have wanted/needed. The beds were comfy as was the recliners (unusually comfy) and couches. The location was far enough away to be quiet yet you had everything at your disposal. The beach and pool were just steps in each direction and to be honest, we only left them to go out to grab a few things twice! And last but not least...the owner! Joyce was always just a phone call away for anything you needed or for any questions you may have. I would highly recommend this unit!

Hi Rita, You understand why I have so many people return time and time again. I warn people if they stay here once, they will want to return. Repeats are the heart of the vacation rental business, and I will be looking forward to having you return next time. --Joyce
Close enough to hear the ocean all day/all night
We were truly delighted to find this place located so close to the water. Endless sunsets & beach views so close you can almost touch the sand.With 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms it was a perfect fit for me and my parents. The condo is on the 2nd floor and located on a quite part of the beach. Each room had a TV and beds are especially comfortable (with 1 bed on the master and 2 beds in the 2nd bedroom) and the aircon was in good working order.I also liked the furniture in the living room. The patio furniture had a table/chairs and lounge chair (which is not common to find). The placement of the sun makes it possible to tan from the balcony. The heated pool is located in the back of the building, close to the road.The rooms have exterior hallways and because of the design of the building the hallways do not open up to the road, which I prefer as that keeps the car noise away.Very comfortable place and one which I highly recommend.

Hi Liz, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Many people rely on the reviews to help them make their selection. I take great pride in ownership and do my best to keep the place comfortable for the guests. I am always thinking of what I can do to make it better. I warn people if you come once, then you will want to return. I'll be looking forward to having you return next time. --Joyce
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful
This condo is exactly as advertised. The beach and ocean is just beyond the balcony. We saw dolphins swimming by in the a.m. and p.m. The condo is decorated very up to date. The beds were comfortable. There are lots of restaurants in the area. We really enjoyed spending time in the heated pool. We'll be back for sure!

Lovely Winter Getaway Spot
Loved the balcony where we'd have meals and read, looking out to the beach and the Gulf, with pelicans and other birds flying close-by and meandering on the beach below. Spacious living and dining area, with 2 good-sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Loved that there was salt, pepper, sugar in the cupboards for us. Pool was warm and lovely. Everything was great. Thoroughly enjoyed.

This is a great location for a quiet family vacation. The condo is just as the photos, right on the beach with a spectacular view. Located very close to John's Pass and great restaurants. All of our needs were met. The only thing that could be different is the master bath could be updated especially the shower. The sliding door to the balcony will also need to be replaced or redone soon. I still give five stars.

Hi Danny, I appreciate you taking the time to leave some feedback. You will be happy to know that I do have plans to tear out the master shower in about 3 months and put in a step in shower. I was surprised about your comment about the patio door. The door was replaced in 2017 as it had the original in there previously. The new door complies with the current code, is impact resistant and has nonreflective glass to make it also turtle compliant so they know how to follow the moon into the water.
Peaceful, Awesome Condo Directly on the Beach
This condo was better than I had expected. The view was to die for. The furnishings were elegant, and everything was soooo clean. It was handy to be on the bus or "trolley" line. The pool was heated to the right temperature. The white sand on the beach was silky. At times you could see the bottom of the ocean from the balcony. The water was that clear. We saw dolphins just straight up on the air.We'll definitely be back.

Hi Dana, I enjoyed having you and your family and look forward to you returning next time. --Joyce
Great ocean front condo, "the view" of the gulf coast and sunsets from the 3rd floor. Roomy Palm decor, basic cable, WI-FI, garage parking, close to everything. Price negotiable.
