"Awesome condo with a beautiful view of the beach from the living room and master bedroom. Extremely comfortable beds, very nice furniture in all the rooms and a good size kitchen. Huge refrigerator. We really enjoyed our week vacation with our son and grandchildren. This condo is in walking distance to several restaurants and an awesome ice cream shop across the street. We like that it is not as congested as Clearwater Beach. Thank you, Trish and Trevor, for letting us stay at your winter home."

"The condo was very clean and comfortable. Although we didn't do much cooking, the new kitchen had all the modern convenience and was a dream! As promised, the sunsets from the balcony were amazing and early morning shell hunting was just a few steps away! We would definitely recommend this condo and hope to make another trip next February!!"

/ Nancy S.


"Great location. The condo is very clean. Close to a variety of things to do. Easy access to everywhere. Took trolley for longer excursions.  (cheapest and easiest way if wanting to go up and down gulf blvd) Got to see dolphins from the balcony and across the street (the narrows). Everyone was SUPER friendly and helpful. Nice to be able to walk to the beach from condo. Beach wasn't too crowded. Fun crabbing at night. Favorite place to eat was JD's. There is a variety of food and great prices and fun entertainment day and night. HAZE ice cream was awesome. Do not get ice cream anywhere else!!! Washer and dryer in condo came in handy. I would highly recommend Indian shores and castle 1. We definitely want to visit again. Hopefully next year!"

/ Nick M.


"We loved our 2-week vacation. Pretty much hung around the condo. Spent lots of time at the beach. The sand is so white. The pool is really nice too. We would definitely go back."

/ Janice S.


"Our stay at this condo was absolutely wonderful. The condo had plenty of space for the group of us staying there. The pool and hot tub were both also really nice and there was a ton of seating around the pool area. The beach was beautiful and not too crowded! Within the area there are a lot of really nice places to eat and right across the street is The Pub which has excellent food, drinks, and staff! Trish was super helpful anytime I had a question and she would email/call promptly with any question I had. I would highly recommend the stay here! Thank you to the owners for sharing their second home with us! I can't wait to return!"

/Megan B.


"We had such a fabulous and relaxing week of vacation while staying at this perfectly located condo! Everything we needed was there, from beach chairs & coolers to kitchen utensils & wine glasses, and even the washer & dryer came in handy. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. The view was everything we hoped for! Stunning sunsets. And when we weren't actually on the beach itself, we spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony enjoying the sun, the sound of the waves, and total relaxation! Plenty of things to do nearby, and loved having 'The Pub' directly across the street to walk to like the food it is wonderful! Would certainly recommend this place to family & friends and hope we can come back again for more visits!!"

"Rest assured, this listing is exactly as described. Very spacious unit with a large balcony and unobstructed beach front view. Extremely clean and well-appointed, owners have taken care to provide beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, and coolers to ensure a fantastic time. Trish was a pleasure to deal with, and promptly returned emails.

We started our vacation in Orlando for a few days and drove out to the Gulf on Saturday. The full kitchen was clean and well-stocked. There was more than enough room for the 4 of us, and the entire property was quiet, no issues with room security.


The pool was very clean, and a few steps beyond puts you on the powdery white sands of the beach. We spent several days bobbing up and down in the water, watching dolphins jump and play. One night the sunset was a brilliant gold and was featured on the news - the pictures we took of our boys as this gold sun was setting on the water are so beautiful. There is a great little family-owned ice cream shop across the street (they have butterbeer!), as well as restaurants close by. We did a day trip to Honeymoon Island, took a ferry tour from the Clearwater Aquarium, and did a pirate cruise. Booking, delivery of the key and parking pass, directions to the condo were perfect. This is the first time we've used VRBO; I was nervous the entire drive there, but we really had a perfect trip, start to finish. There is a really neat visitor's book in the unit - if you book this unit, please read the previous guests' comments, as there's some good advice on what to do, where to eat, etc.


We would most certainly stay here again - Trish and Trevor's unit provided us with the most fantastic memories; bobbing up and down in the warm, clear Gulf water, with our 15 year old son and our 9 year old son (who, thanks to the goggles provided in the unit, spent a lot of time finding for the best shells under the water) was something my husband and I will always cherish. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you so much!!"

/ Caron C.


"This place was clean, enough space for 5 and close to the beach. We went there for our family vacation and no complaints.

The views of the ocean and sunset were fantastic. This place also had a great pool and hot tub. It was also close to some great restaurants and shops. Would recommend this place for a family or couple who want to get away and enjoy the beach."

/ Guest


"We had a wonderful time at Indian Shores. Our party consisted of myself, my wife, my 9 yr old son and 18yr old daughter. My mother in law , her sister, and a long time family friend joined us as well for a few days. The area is very nice and just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Clearwater. The condo was just as advertised. it was clean, well maintained, and had all the provisions that we needed. The condo housed all 7 of us very comfortably. We utilized the grilling area several days and was pleased with the equipment and how easy it was to use. For dinning our I would recommend the Pub just across the street. Activities included a trip to Egmont key by boat We really enjoyed. We also did some kayaking. Most of all we just hung out at the condo and relaxed. Watched dolphins playing just 20 ft from the shore, did some swimming in the pool, relaxed in the hot tub, laid on the beach and listened to the ocean. just had a great time. And finaly The overall experience with renting the condo was top notch. Trish was very easy to deal with. She returned phone calls, emails and was spot on with what she said she would do. Thank you, Trish, for helping make our trip to Florida one to remember."

"Everything written in the details of this Condo was right on the mark!!!! Beautiful place to relax and enjoy the nice sunshine and great beach! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back again in the future. The condo was clean and well looked after. A nice feature was a binder with everything you need to know about everything in the condo. From appliances to where to eat - all included in a nice binder! Free internet and long distance calling to Canada was a bonus and very much appreciated. Check in and check out was very easy and the staff was friendly. The grounds/pool/hot tub are beautiful and well kept! Can't say enough about this condo and it's location."

/ Frances L. 


"Came here for four weeks for a retiree vacation to escape the harsh Canadian winter. The owners were fantastic and made the whole rental process go smoothly and made sure we had the best vacation ever. With so much to do nearby, it was easy to keep busy as well as taking the time to relax on the beach. Will definitely come back!"

/ Tom M.


"Great views. Clean and updated condo.

My family and I really enjoyed this condo. The decor is updated and tastefully decorated. The layout is great and very comfortable. The view of the gulf is amazing and the pelicans and seagulls fly past the balcony all the time."

/ Jeffrey M. 

"This condo was perfect for our family of 5! It has everything you need plus lots of extras. We highly recommend this condo to anyone considering it. The owners are super friendly and informative. Thank you for letting us stay in your home!"
/ Kary B.

"Beautifully renovated condo & the owners provided all necessities & nice to have. Communication throughout the entire process was detailed & insured we had a great vacation. Hope to visit again soon! Thank you , Trish & Trevor!

/ Connie G.


"We spent a week at the condo, it was a perfect week. the condo had everything you need with a beautiful view! We loved the hot tub and heated pool. It was a perfect location with restaurants and stores nearby in walking distance. We especially enjoyed Caddy's pub which was right across the street. We would go back again, relaxing vacation at the beach!

/ Tim F. 


"My husband and I stayed at this property during the last week in May. The owners were so accommodating to our schedule and very helpful with informing us of all the activities, restaurants and things to do in the area! We had never stayed on this beach before, but it was the perfect location for us. Very relaxing beach and area! The condo was immaculate and ready when we arrived and although it was just the two of us, the condo can accommodate a nice sized family. Plenty of things to see and do, close to everything if you wanted to venture out. Loved the view of the ocean from the master suite! You cannot go wrong with renting this unit! We will be back again."

/ Chris T.


"This is the first time we ever rented right on the Beach, It was fabulous! Every morning I had breakfast on the deck enjoying the view of the Gulf. We also saw a few dolphins. Very Clean place & accommodated us very well. Close to restaurants & shopping at Johns Pass. We loved it. The Pool was warm & very convenient. The beach was not crowded at all. Picked seashells on our walks on the beach every morning."

/ Larry E.


"This condo is a true gem...spacious, clean, well-equipped. The pool area is superb and beachfront is amazing. Owners are very professional and a pleasure to deal with. We'll return, without a doubt!"

/Rosemary S.


"Our visit to Indian Shores and this condo was perfect. The unit is spotless, the kitchen has everything you will need and both rooms have comfortable beds. The decor is very tropical. We enjoyed having the beach furniture at our disposal. The view is spectacular from the balcony. You couldn't ask for better accommodations. The owners were a pleasure to work with and were always available to answer any questions. First class customer service. The only thing was that our time at Condo was too short and would have enjoyed another week or two! We would definitely stay again and would not hesitate to recommend the Condo to our friends and family."

/ Laurie T.


"Everything was exactly as the website said. From the moment of booking and until arrival, condo owner kept to all date and times in contract. The owner was not only professional but very personable to do business with. The unit was very clean and a kitchen stocked with good cookware and glassware. The outside closet is stocked with everything from beach chairs to beach toys and even a couple fishing rods."

/ Lindsay S. 


"Great unit, interior & exterior exactly as described. Ideal location. Many amenities included for the beach- beach chairs, floats, cooler, toys etc. Many restaurants nearby. Owners were very pleasant to deal with. Would definitely return to this unit & highly recommend it to friends & family."

/ Mary M.


"This condo was exactly as described! Trish was great to deal with! Perfect location....stunning view, right on the Gulf! The most amazing part is the mesmerizing, continuous sound of the waves, which you can hear even with the sliding doors closed! Very peaceful at night and in the morning. The beach was clean and never crowded. The pool was nice and also not too crowded. The Pub, Crabby Bill's, and Salt Rock Grille were all tasty places to eat. Crabby Bill's had outdoor music entertainment. All in all, this was a great condo, owned by great people, in a superb location! I'll be back!"

/ Julia T. 


"Owners were great to work with. Enjoyed walks on the beach and area food establishments. Sunsets were beautiful!"

/ Linnea L. 


"Everything we needed for a family of five! Beautiful views! Very clean, easy access to beach and pool. Would recommend staying."

/ Raj S. 


"From our first interaction, and throughout our stay, the owners (Trish and Trevor) were absolutely wonderful in explaining the process, helping us with minor things, and showing their concern for their beautiful gulf front property. The wifi worked great, the kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked well, and the VIEW from the living room and balcony of this 9th-floor unit was absolutely breathtaking (especially each evening as the sunset). This was our first experience in vacation rentals and we couldn't have been happier with our vacation experience. Thanks again, Trish and Trevor, for sharing with us your beautiful Florida beachfront home!"

/ Brian B.


"Communication with the owner was perfect and very professional. No problems with the rental and everything was just as described and pictured. The property was very relaxed as it was perhaps 25-50% full when we visited. The pool was cleaned daily, chairs arranged each evening. Property and condo were very clean.


We saw stingrays in the surf and daily sightings of dolphins making their way through. Kids were able to practice their snorkeling in the pool prior to the Gulf. The pool was a nice break from the surf and most of the kids in the condo were seen using both. The fishing wasn't so good but it didn't keep people from trying. Two sea turtles found the beach to be an acceptable place to lay eggs while we were there and were marked by the daily turtle patrol

We were able to walk across the street to rent a boat for the day and took a trip up to Caladesi Island and down to Johns Pass. Crabby Bills restaurant was our favorite go-to restaurant both for atmosphere and food.


The furniture was acceptable and normal beach condo quality. Even with A/C on, we could hear the surf and waves while we slept. The property was nice enough and had enough amenities that we didn't look at emails or watch TV the whole week, and that was a first for my family. While the kids were catching up on their sleep, we drank coffee on the porch and watched people and the surf below.

All in all a great property. Good location away from the busy areas with everything you need nearby. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to friends and would certainly rent again. Thanks for sharing your second home with us."

/Bradley F.


"What a wonderful vacation we had. It went too fast and we were there for 3 weeks. The condo was spotless and had everything we could possibly need. The view of the ocean/sunsets from the balcony was spectacular. We had the sliding doors open the whole time to listen to the ocean. Amazing how well we slept listening to the waves all night. The furnishings were beautiful, very Florida and beach-like. We definitely recommend this condo to everyone who would love a FIRST CLASS vacation in the Sunshine State! It was perfect in every way!"

/ Carol Z.


"We just returned from our family week at the beach. This was our first time at Indian Shores and the first time staying at this condo. Everything was excellent! Trish went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. The flooring and the bathrooms have been upgraded. The kitchen has everything you need for the week. The sand toys, boogie board, and cooler came in very handy for our daily trips to the sand and ocean. The sunsets here are breathtaking! Thank you so much for sharing your home!"

/ Becky R.


"My family and I rented this condo the first week in March. We all had a fantastic time. The condo is as described but words cannot describe the beautiful view. Full gulf view that is amazing. The condo was very well furnished and we had everything needed for a wonderful time. It was very nicely decorated and was very clean. The location was great We were very happy with the condo and were sorry to leave. Trish was great to work with. She answered emails promptly and truly cared about making your stay perfect. You can tell by talking to her that she is an awesome person. Very kind and someone that you would want to rent from. Can't say enough good things about our experience renting this condo. Would love to return soon. Thanks again, Trish and Trevor."

/ Sherrie D.


"Our experience with the owners was what you would hope for, pleasant, friendly, extremely helpful and encouraged us to call if there was anything we required. Would certainly return in the future. Recommending this property would be a pleasure. Trying the Frog Pond and Sweet Sage is an absolute must for breakfast. I hope who ever follows us to this property enjoys it as much as we did."

/ Guest 


"We really enjoyed our stay in this very nicely decorated and clean condo. Everything we needed was there. The view from the 9th floor is a plus. This is a return visit to this condo complex in 2012. The grounds and pool area are beautiful. Family environment and wonderful people we meet at the pool on vacation as well. The beach is beautiful and you can walk for miles in either direction.


Great restaurant across the street, just sit back on their patio along the intercoastal waterway.


The owners of this condo were great to work with. I would highly recommend this condo and condo property. Recommend driving to downtown St. Petersburg. Great restaurants and beautiful old Florida look. This is the third property we have found and rented through VRBO with great success and wonderful owners. For this property, thanks, Trish!"

/Beach W. 


"The condo, location, view, and amenities are exactly as stated - you can believe what you read - a refreshing change from many listings you find on the internet or in brochures. The owners were excellent to work with - friendly, honest and easy to contact. The sunset view is amazing and the condo is very well equipped to make you feel right at home. Boat rentals right across the street to complete a great vacation. Thank you VRBO and T&T!"

/ Sherry L. 


"Wow. What a fabulous place to spend your vacation. Beautiful beach and gorgeous sunsets every night. And a tastefully decorated and well-equipped condo. Thanks for letting us stay there."

/ Patricia M.


"Vacationed here for the beach and space, discovered there was so much more. The unit was beautiful, the balcony was huge and had an amazing unobstructed view of the ocean. Stunning sunsets, fun beach, great weather, and the pool and building amenities are perfect for the kids. The perfect place for families, couples and friends alike. Will definitely be returning and telling all of my friends to stay here! Also! Amazing service by the owners Trish and Trevor!"

/ Karen M.

"I've stayed there twice and would definitely stay again and again."

/ Julianna A.


"We enjoyed our stay at Sandcastle I. The condo was wonderful and spacious for our family of 4. It was clean, comfortable and had gorgeous views. We were able to watch dolphins every day on both the ocean side and the Intracoastal side. The sunsets were beautiful. The condo has everything you need for a great stay at the beach. Trish was so wonderful to deal with. She is a very sweet person. The only negatives were the 1st day we were there one of the elevators was broken and it caused quite a line/wait for us to get up to the 9th floor. They did have it fixed by the next day. Also, the pool for the building is small and was always too crowded for us. But who needs the pool when you have such a beautiful beach to enjoy. We also like this spot as it is close to so many great things to enjoy. I will definitely try to stay here again when we come back to this area and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice and affordable place to stay in Indian Shores."

/ Guest


"My friends and I absolutely loved the condo, the view, the beach and all of the surroundings. The temperature in the condo stayed pleasantly cool and we loved the spaciousness of the room. But most of all, we loved the pure view of the ocean with absolutely no obstructions. There is nothing quite like eating breakfast or having coffee on the balcony of this unit. It was great therapy for some very busy moms, professionals, and stressed out girls!!! The ONLY downside is not getting to stay forever. "

/ Tina S. 


"We absolutely loved this condo and the building itself. The condo is well-equipped, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The listing on VRBO accurately described the unit and the property. We would definitely stay there again, and would recommend it to others."

/ Patrice W.


"My husband and I spent an amazing week away with the kids here. We couldn't ask for anything more in a beachfront property. Tons of space, tons to do, and the owners Trish and Trevor were incredibly accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend this to all of my friends and family!"

/ Andrea S. 


"Spent an amazing two weeks here with my mother, grandmother, and daughter. It was a perfect girls getaway, with tons of amenities in the building, as well as tons of shopping and restaurants nearby to try out. Would definitely recommend the Pub across the street!"
