My spouse and I rented one of the condos for vacation. Indian Shores is a great place to stay on the coast though there are not many restaurants or attractions close by. We did travel to Tampa, St. Pete's and Clearwater Beach in about 30 minutes and Clearwater in 15-20 minutes. The location was ideal; we had easy access to the beach. It was pretty quiet except for our noisy neighbors who kept setting off the smoke alarm at 3 am! We arrived into a clean room. There is no maid service which is nice in the sense that you don't have to tip someone to straighten up your room though you are only provided with one roll of toilet paper, one body bar of soap, one hand soap, and 4 towels. If you need anything extra, they charge you. I would recommend bringing toilet paper and a bar of soap with you. We also brought beach towels as one of the rules is not to take their towels to the beach. Overall, we enjoyed the room. They went the extra mile with granite countertops and tile floors. There is a full kitchen, large bathroom, large bedroom with closet and drawers, living area, and an office nook for your internet needs.
The grounds are lovely, the pool is small but with a large deck, and the view by the pool is of the bay where people can fish.
There was a wedding on Saturday night in which they closed off part of the pool deck for the reception. I sure hope this was not expensive for the wedding party b/c it was surely not private. People were still swimming in the pool and walking around near the deck. How strange!
I would recommend this place for a nice family vacation. I would not recommend them for a private honeymoon or romantic stay if you expect to be pampered.
