Lovely 3-bedroom / 2-bathroom condo on the second floor of a quiet 15-unit complex, away from the crowds.

A private stairway leads to the heated pool (fenced all round to keep children safe) and the beach. The unit is fully equipped for all your holiday needs including towels, bed linen, and much, much more. Plenty of shops, restaurants and activities for the whole family are all within easy reach. Unit size approx 1375 sq ft. Air conditioning & central heating throughout, plus ceiling fans in the master bedroom, second bedroom and lounge.

Peaceful holiday on The Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay at West Coast Vista, my husband reviewed the condo after our first visit and I'm happy to say that the high standard set is still being maintained.

The condo is located in a quiet block facing the Gulf, there is a designated shady parking space allocated. Inside it is well decorated and furnished, linens and towels are of good quality (plenty of extra towels in vanity unit) and the kitchen is well stocked with crockery, pans and utensils.

However, it is the situation of this property that wins hands down, there is nothing quite like sitting on the balcony with breakfast or a cocktail and watching dolphins swim by or pelicans soaring above.

The pool below is heated and has good sun loungers, then a few more steps and you are straight onto the sand. Bliss!

There are many restaurants within walking or short driving distance. Publix supermarket is 5 minutes away in the car.

We recommend a trip to Honeymoon Island State Park to see Osprey, Spoonbill and even a Bald Eagle. Follow this with a visit to nearby Dunedin. Of course The Dali Museum in St Petersburg is always worth a visit and after you could catch the ferry across the bay to Tampa.

As Arnie said "we'll be back!"

Great location, no en suite master bedroom

  • 3 of 5

The view of the gulf and sunsets is outstanding. However, my definition of a master bedroom is one that is en suite, so when the website advertised a master bedroom, that is what I expected. Big disappointment that the unit had

2 stand- alone bathrooms in need of an update. Although the unit is meant to accommodate 6 people, we only had 4 bathtowels and 1 bathmat for 2 bathrooms. We looked forward to playing some of the boardgames on the shelf, but when we opened the boxes, they were all empty. We were early to check in. The unit wasn't ready yet, but 3 Palms thoughtfully offered to call us when it was ready. The call never came, although the staff was friendly when we finally got the keys.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that there was some misunderstanding about the bathrooms, we will review the listing description to see if we can make this more clear. The linen service usually provides 8 sets of towels - two sets hung in each bathroom and the rest stored in the vanity units. Our agent is always very prompt at providing additional towels if any are missing. Unfortunately some items, such as beach toys, board games, etc, get damaged or go missing during the rental season; we will check these on our next maintenance visit.

Summer 2015 vacation

  • 4 of 5

This makes the 2nd time we have stayed at wcv 2d. The unit has a perfect view of the beach and ocean. We like having the stairway directly to your room from the pool as well as the elevator (kids and groceries are heavy). The unit is nice with plenty of room. Plenty of sand toys to enjoy as well. Sara is great to work with as well. We'll definitely be returning!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here. Property is right on the beach. Having morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the ocean, walks on the beach was just what we were looking for. There are no hotels around so beach is yours! If you want more hustle and bustle, drive to John's Pass. There are restaurants, shops, tours that way. Publix is in a different direction. Everything is within 10 minutes drive.

Condo itself is spacious, had everything you need for your stay. My only complaints were a/c and faucet knobs in one of the bathrooms. A/C was making a rattling noise in the bedroom next to the kitchen and wasn't efficient enough to get rid of the humidity inside. Faucets had to be cleaned. We left our comments to the management company so hopefully it's all fixed.

Overall, definitely recommend this property. You will enjoy your stay.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

A stunning location for a relaxing holiday. A lovely view of the Gulf coast from the rear of the property, particularly when the sun sets. Also a nice view of the brackish waterway at the front, from the master bedroom. We particularly liked watching the wildlife including dolphins and pelicans. Shame we never got to see a manatee, which can sometimes be seen in the waterway.

The accommodation is particularly nicely furnished, providing all the amenities you could require. It is well maintained and the agents provide a helpful service if you do have any questions. Once you have mastered the intricacies of the TV remote controls, there is also a good selection of satellite channels.

There is a nice selection of restaurants ,featuring locally caught fish, within a few miles either direction and not the usual chain restaurants that you see all along the main highways.

I would certainly recommend the property to others and would hope to return ourselves one day.

Brilliant Beach Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

If you are interested in a brilliant beach holiday - look no further. This condo at West Coast Vista is very well kept, comfortable and has a beautiful view. We stayed there with our family of six - parents, grandparents and two teenagers - during Christmas 2011 and we just booked again for Christmas 2012! Sara, the owner, has always been accommodating to our needs and very swift in replies and the management company, Three Palms, has been quite helpful and expedient in fixing small things for us. Indian Rocks Beach is probably one of the best kept vacation secrets and is full of Old Florida charm, complete with delightfully casual bars or a slightly upper scale restaurant (e.g. Guppy's) where after a day at the beach you can enjoy a cold beer or a Chardonnay and the best fresh seafood on the planet!
