“Very Nice Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

It wa our first stateside vacation ever. Very picturesque location, very clean apartment, fully furnished, friendly and helpful front desk staff.

We had the end room 117 where we could see the water way,boats, birds, people fishing and it was very quiet at night.

No pictures to share on line. I am "old school" (35mm)

Room Tip: The rooms on the end facing north have veiws of the water way

The cleanliness of the property was our first positive impression. Then the friendliness and personal interest in our needs at check in come second. This place is well worthy of the positive reviews I've read because it offers a more personal touch then a common motel. Its not so huge that it becomes just another one guest among the last thousand guests attitude. The location is great because it is only a two lane road that passes vs. the four lanes a little further south. Therefore, traffic is slower and quieter and makes passing across the road to the beach much easier. Being located away from the street contributed to quietness as well The area around the property was very well up-kept, modern and clean. The place has a dated feel in a good way. The atmosphere and furnishings seemed more reminiscent of the eighties then 2012. Every thing was in great shape in our studio room although the carpet needed to be stretchered because of some wrinkles. The suites, as far as I know, have large tiling on the floors. The bathroom was huge and had a large oval tub while the shower area was separate from the tub. The shower was over-sized, and. I loved the water pressure it offered as well. Overall, very worth the money spent. They have a clean heated pool and free wi-fi in the lobby area

Room Tip: I would choose a second floor room simply because you won't hear someone moving about overhead a...

We just returned from a week at this resort and plan on returning next year. We had a one bedroom unit on the second floor. The rooms were large, it was immaculate, and it was remarkably quiet.

This is a small property, with a parking garage on the first level, and condo units on the two floors above. There is an elevator from the garage to the two floors above. It is across the street from the beach, which is a quick five minute walk away. It does face the intercoastal on the backside and there is a small canal area that runs down one side of the property. There is a fishing pier off the back, and a deck area with picnic table on that side as well. There is a small but clean pool next to the office, a business area with a single computer and printer, and a pay laundry room. The entire property, while not glitzy, is very clean and well maintained. It is located on Gulf Boulevard, between Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach, in a mostly residential area with lots of restaurants and shops sprinkled along the way. Publix, Winn Dixie and Walmart are all a short drive away on roads going inland.

The unit was large, with a single big bedroom with a comfortable king size bed with four pillows and flat screen TV. The kitchen was exceptionally large and had nice quality pots, pans, dishes, etc. Unlike other timeshares, we found that it included just about every utensil we could think of. Plates, glasses and silverware for six were provided. There was a good size living room with a sleeper sofa, coffee table, two chairs and a cabinet with a flat screen TV. There was a basic full bath with a tub/shower combo, toilet and a vanity with a single sink. In addition, there was another vanity area and another sink just outside that door. The dining area had a large table and six chairs. The unit had a private balcony with a sliding door off the bedroom on the backside, which was in the trees and very private. There was a triple size set of doors from the living room facing the front walkway and the canal, with two white plastic chairs. We had plenty of towels and sheets, and pillows and blankets for the sleeper sofa were in the master closet. There was an iron, ironing board and a small safe in the closet also. When we arrived we found basic supplies (one roll of toilet paper with one replacement, one box of tissues with a spare, a very small bottle of dish liquid, two dishwasher packets, a half a roll of paper towels with one replacement. There was a trashbag in the can, with one replacement in the bottom. Basic kitchen linens included a dishtowel, washrag and pot holders (no sponge). We did not have wireless internet in our room, although it is available in the business office. We were able to log on through our own carrier using a Blackberry in our room, so this was not an issue for us. We noted when we arrived (and did not like) that the two outdoor barbecue grills were charcoal and pretty small. Half way through the week they were removed an a nice large new gas grill was added. There was a general feel that lots of recent updating had been done, which was a good thing.

Pros: location, quiet, cleanliness and overall maintenance of the property, access to both the beach and the intercoastal, friendlness of the staff and the other guests, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, overall spaciousness of the unit, and there are lots of fish around the dock, dolphins in the intercoastal and a manatee that goes in and out of the canal

Cons: the wood furniture (while in good condition) and carpet is older, the office has llimited hours (so that means the business center and laundry facility do as well), there is no free wireless service in the units, people will walk by your front glass doors (although it was very quiet and this was not an issue for us)

Suggestions: If like us you fly in, check what is there before heading to the grocery store. Stop t the dollar store first to pick up paper plates and cups, dish liquid and non-perishable items. Hit the grocery store or Walmart next for the rest of your supplies. There is Publix not far norh (right on Gulf Blvd, right at the light in the center of Indian Rocks onto Walsingham Rd, then a few lights up on the left), and the dollar store and liquor store is right next door. We arrived on a Saturday evening and I was back, fully stocked, by 8:30pm.

We spent the Thanksgiving holiday here with my mother-in-law and grandmother and this place was perfect. We were able to get adjoining rooms with two queen beds and tv (with efficiences) and a huge bathroom with walk-in shower and soaking tub on one side. In the adjoining room there was a large living area with tv and dvd, a full kitchen with a huge island, a king bedroom with tv with full bath and double sinks and a private balcony.The front entrance also had a nice sitting area (couch bed also!) with a great view of the waterway. Nice pool and also a nice sitting area and dock over the water in the back for up close bird watching. It was very accessible for my 90 year old grandmother and had covered parking as well. Beach access very close by and also a trolley stop right in front of the building that can take you up to Clearwater Beach for an insanley low price! I searched the area very thoroughly before staying here to find something affordable for 4 people and this place was an incredible bargain!!

Room Tip: If you want 2 queen beds instead of a king make sure to request them when making the reservations.

We have stayed here a few times over the past few years and have absolutely loved it every time! The location is ideal for an ocean getaway, but close enough to restaurants and shopping that you won't miss anything!
Gee, the front desk manager was absolutely wonderful in helping us get the room we needed during our stay. He even called our cell to personally let us know he could add a lock off unit to our reservation (which we wanted to reserve a few months back, but found out it was booked).
The units are very spacious and clean. There was a private deck on the back of our unit that looked across to the ocean.
Everything was just perfect at this resort, and we will come back time and time again!

Room Tip: We have stayed on both floors and have enjoyed each room

We stayed here for three night and it was fantastic. You can see wild dolphins from the balcony. Our room also had a huge bathroom, i would love to have that one at home. We are definitly coming back to this little gem!

I have never been to such a poor excuse for a resort. I want to add my two cents to zena kitties review. It was my vehicle that we were all in and it was I that found it after it was broke into and vandalized. I had to ask the staff repeatedly to call the police, the security guard told me that he heard the alarm going off in my vehicle at 6am, seen the door open and just thought we were messing with my car. Well it was around 8:30 am when I went down to the lit and supposedly safe parking garage. So security listened to my alarm going off for 2 1/2 hours and never even bothered to investigate.They just acted like "oh well" I am beside myself with anger. What kind of facility does not have 24 hour staff to assist the patrons? this place. Office closes at 5pm. After that you are on your own. Security leaves at 11pm and then there is really no one here. The rooms were clean, but it is not family friendly or should not even be classified as a resort. My best advice to you is to not even look at this place twice. Do you think they offered to assist us in the fact that we had to cut our trip short, NOPE.... So don't even bother to ask to be reimbursed for the nights that you can't stay because of their lack of security on their premises. Truly a horrible vacation thanks to a horrible so called Resort.

Room Tip: Book some where else
