About the owner: Larry and Cheryl Reinhardt are a recently retired couple from Southern Illinois near St. Louis who love to spend time with family on the water. We have lived our entire lives here in rural Illinois and decided to purchase a home on the water near Tampa for the endless entertainment opportunities that abound near the city. While most of Larry's childhood was spent on local lakes fishing, skiing, and camping, having a condo on the beach offers limitless access to all water sports.
Why this property? We chose the Indian Shores and Tampa area after visiting virtually every tourist area in Florida. We love the small town atmosphere of both Indian Shores and Indian Sands Condos while being only a few miles from the conveniences of the city. We can fly to either Tampa or Clearwater Airport and easily uber to our beach home. This complex is small and quiet with all the amenities of the larger more crowded resorts. This is our little slice of paradise!!
You can't go wrong with this condo! Absolutely wonderful!
The condo was beautiful, clean, spacious and full of all the amenities you could need. The deck overlooking the intercoastal was the best place to have coffee, watch the sunrise and see the manatee. The dock, the pool and the back deck in the master suite were a wonderful addition. The trolley stop was right outside the building and will take you anywhere on Gulf Blvd. Larry was a pleasure to work with and when you book the condo don't forget to head to JD's for an evening on their back deck. What a fun time! Our vacation was heavenly and can't wait to do it again!

Beyond our expectations
Don’t second guess !! BOOK NOW !! We have done several beach vacations, this by far was our favorite. This place is huge , with 5 of us we all had PLENTY of room . It was cleaned nicely . This is a piece of heaven. Laid back and so peaceful. Larry was a pleasure to work with . Very close to the beach , 150 steps from the front door . The pool was nice and pretty much all ours all week . The storage unit was a plus to have all our beach stuff tucked away , along with my hubby’s fishing gear . Was nice to have beach chairs, and a wagon here for our use . Also the dock was heavenly, fishing amazing. Also seeing the manatee, and dolphins . I can’t express enough how much we enjoyed our stay !! So much we are already booked for next year . The beaches were beautiful, Sandy white and Crystal blue water . I promise you can’t go wrong booking !! Very close to Clearwater of you want a busy day or evening. Definitely stole this Georgia Gal’s Heart !! Until next year ♥️

The condo itself is always tip-top. Owner does a fabulous job with keeping it clean, updated amd comfortable for all guests. Layout is awesome, its very spacious and the view from the balcony is breathtaking. There is always an array of dolphins and manatee and you can fish right off the dock. If youbare looking for the perfect getaway, this is the place to go!!! Highly recommend!!!

My family stayed in this condo for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The condo was spacious and was a short walk to the beach. The pool was never crowded and there were plenty of beach chairs, toys, floats, fishing rods and a nice cart to pull them in. The intercoastal view was breathtaking and we spotted a manatee and several dolphins while there. We will definitely rent this condo again!

Lovely repeat visit to Indian Shores
We hadn't stayed in this particular apartment before but it was really nice with a lovely view of the waterway. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed for our one month stay. The sofas and the bed were very comfortable and Larry, the owner,was most helpful from initial booking to our leaving a couple of days ago when he was happy to give us a late check out as our flight time from Tampa was delayed.We used the fishing dock every day and caught catfish, puffer fish and one day a flying fish. The dolphins went by regularly and on one occasion manatee. The beach trolley was most useful and the pool was lovely as usual. We also went fishing and sailing out of Clearwater and ate at JDs, the Mexican restaurant, the Columbia and Spinners along at St Pete's beach. We know the area well so tend to stick with our old favourites.The one problem we had in the apartment was with the fridge freezer which ceased to function correctly and was obviously essential given the temperatures. Larry immediately arranged for a maintenance company to come out and when they said it couldn't be repaired the old one was removed and a new one installed and all within 24 hours.One thing I would add is that maybe a notice should be placed on the fridge freezer reminding people not to leave fishing bait in the appliance but to dispose of it properly before leaving.We were more than happy with our stay and would happily recommend this apartment to others.

This Condo was beyond my expectations. Rooms were very large, nicely decorated and very clean.. our stay was wonderful. We were there to attend my son and daughter in law’s wedding renewal of vows. We were very comfortable with the area, the transportation and restaurants in the area. I love Indian Rocks Beach. I will definitely be booking this Condo again.

Will be coming back next year!!
We really enjoyed our time at this condo! The owners have thought of everything you will need to make your vacation wonderful. The condo is well stocked and the furnishings are comfortable. The setting is tranquil and the beach isn't crowded at this location! We enjoyed long walks on the beach and sitting on the balcony where we saw dolphins swim by.

Great Vacation Stay
My husband and I have stayed several times at this location in Indian Shores. One of the best features that we enjoy is to relax on the balcony that overlooks the waterway. Watching the boats go in and out and of course getting to see the dolphins and manatees are the highlight of our day. This condo is very well stocked and several restaurants are within walking distance. The owners have always been very helpful and accommodating.

Great waterfront location
We enjoyed our vacation at this large, very clean condo located right on the waterway. It was very relaxing to sit on the dock or balcony and watch the dolphins, boats, and birds. The beach was right across the street and the owners provide a beach wagon, chairs, and toys. The condo is in a small quiet complex but only minutes away from St. Pete and Clearwater. I highly recommend this condo and look forward to returning.
