Do you want a room near the water? Is outside your door close enough? Because the hotel is located on the narrow section of the barrier island, the waves of the Gulf of Mexico brush the shore about 150 feet from the property. The sound of waves are always present. With only six villas Sand Glo is like your own private house on the beach. Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, gas grill, linens, wireless, free long distance, compete kitchens, and off street parking add to the feel of this being your home.

My sister was staying here with her 2 kids. My other sister and I plus a friend decided to meet up on the beach which is public with our kids for a girls day. This property allows for guests to use the kayaks and beach toys on site. The kids were having a great time using the equipment when the property manager yells at the kids to put it all away. She tried to tell My sister that if we didn't leave 'her strip' of the beach which is public, she would be kicked out of the condo with her kids during spring break when there was nowhere to go. She was so nasty to the kids and downright condescending. She insisted I didn't have the number of kids that I have. Save yourself and your family from a crazy lady watching your kids with binoculars and don't stay here. This women obviously hates children.

Always wanted to walk out of my room onto white sand, paddle in the water, walk the beach and this was the best place ever to do it. What a fabulous place this is, feels like I’ve died and gone to heaven. This is a real peace of heaven. The beach is awesome, beautiful white sands, a gentle surf, safe swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, sun bathing, walking, chilled people, fabulous accommodations (picture do not do it justice). They even do a great breakfast in the court yard on Sundays for guests, complimentary of course. Across the road is Salt Rock, great food, great service, they do a $16 early bird offer which is lush. Bagels at Peters bagel shop are the closest I’ve got to the best bagels outside of NYC and I’m from London. Would I come again. Oh yes, not left yet and I’ve booked for 10 days this time in 12 months time, I’m working up to how long Howard stayed for which was a month. Katrena is a perfect host, there are 6 units, all self contained. It’s home from home, you can cook a gourmet meal with the amount of crookery, pots and pans etc in a fully equipped kitchen, or do what we do, get take out delivered. This place is fabulous, bed is comfortable, great power in the shower, quiet and peaceful, immaculately clean thanks to Teresa who is the head of cleaning. Clean towels provide after a two days, ability to do washing and drying (so not many clothes needed). Loved sitting outside of an evening with a cold glass of vino listening to the surf. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you Katrena and Teresa.

There are not enough stars to rate the 'feel' of this property! The view is amazing, the villa is immaculate and our host Katerina has a way of making you feel welcome and like instant family! We stayed for 3 nights and wanted to stay for the rest of the year! Fine dining right across the street, a 'bohemian' style coffee house with homemade pastries and breakfast sandwiches just a few doors down and plenty of choices for lunches and dinner. We parked our car and didn't get back in it until check out day. My husband and I will definitely be making this trip a new annual tradition, thanks Auntie Kat!

I can not say enough great things about our stay at Sand Glo Villas. I went for a birthday getaway with my best friend and this place was perfect. The owner was amazing and even sang me happy birthday, put up a sign and brought me a sweet treat. We stayed in a studio and it was great for us. We felt very safe and were only a few steps from the water. There was a market Sunday morning across the street in the Municipal parking lot and did quite a bit of shopping there. We had groceries delivered for the week and had no problem. We didn't even rent a car, we just took lyft from Tampa airport for $40. We also took lyft to John's Pass for $12 so we saved a lot of money not renting a car. There is an amazing restaurant across the street- Salt Rock Grill. It gets busy so book a reservation on their website and be sure you check out their early bird menu. We will definitely be booking at Sand Glo again and can't wait! I have stayed in Indian Shores & Madeira Beach and this place beats both hands down. One piece of advice- Be sure you know what villa you are staying in prior to arrival, especially if you are doing a late check-in.

Katrena is the absolute BEST. She went completely above and beyond for myself and my family. She is kind, efficient, attentive, and her condos are right on the beach. We couldn't ask for a better stay or a better property manager! We will definitely be back and will tell everyone we know about Katrena and Sandy Glo! 10/10 recommended! ☀️🏖

What a view. And the owner(s) are some of the nicest folks you will ever meet. Very attentive. We will definitely book again. We had a spot to park our vehicle which is key in Indian Shores. All the restaurants we love are within walking distance. Thanks Katrina

Had a great time. Everyone really nice and had a great view of the Ocean. Kids had fun. Loved the cookies that were put out for guest. So much better than your typical hotel. We would come back again.

This property is a great choice for all visitors! Its quiet and small. The customer service is exceptional! We had an amazing stay and will definitely be back. This is truly a hidden gem. They are very family friendly with a few beach toys for kids of all ages and there’s a toy turtle who leaves little things for the kids. It truly made our kids vacation memorable. They provide beach towels and plenty of bath towels. Along with plenty privacy.

We love this place.. Kat always makes you feel like you’re at your own home.. She is always accommodating to all of your needs. We have stayed here 3 times twice in the back villa and once in the front villa facing the ocean.. we have stayed with and without the children.. It’s all around just a great place.. good location.. You literally walk out to the sand. The location is perfectly situated so it’s a quiet area..
