Vacation in February Condo was very clean ! Great location! Had an issue with the TV not working and they cane over to fix right away! The TV was missing a cord. I would say there are to many remotes and none of them had on the remote what they went to. They only thing I would suggest is to have cleaning supplies to clean condo while I was there. Stove top cleaner, floor cleaner, window cleaner for glass table tops. I don’t feel that a renter should have to buy:)

Beautiful views This condo is very well located in the peaceful community of Indian Shores. There is great access to all the necessary amenities and close proximity to many great restaurants. Being an 8th floor corner unit with a wrap-around balcony, the views from the unit are excellent. This unit comes with an under-building parking spot, which is bonus. The unit is decently decorated and equipped for all family needs for a comfortable stay. <br/><br/>During our two week stay we did encounter multiple issues three different days with the building fire alarm going off in the middle of the night as rain storms seem to trip the system. One evening it went off 4 times, the alarm ringing for about 15 minutes each time, with the exception of the last time it rang for a full hour as the fire department would no longer come to turn it off. Hopefully they get this serious issue with the building fixed soon. Not sleeping due to fire alarms did not make for a restful family vacation.

Excellent Condo-Not Kid Friendly Complex The unit itself is very nice and clean. The beds were comfortable and the view was amazing. I have zero complaints regarding the condo. However, the building it is within is not a kid friendly building. Had I known this before, I wouldn't have booked this condo. There were a lot of snowbirds or retirees that lived in the building. They had a lot of rules- no floats, toys, balls, or rafts in the pool, no horseplay in the pool.. It was very boring for a 7 year old boy. On the couple of occasions he jumped in the pool and splashed some older men, they were quick to yell at him. There were 2 elevators, although only 1 was working. It was only half the size of regular elevator and could maybe fit 6 people squeezed tightly together. Twice during our week stay the only working elevator was inoperable causing us to have to walk up 8 floors to get to our condo. There were new signs in the elevator every day instructing visitors to do this or don't do that.. There was an older lady who walked around the parking lot checking parking passes and quickly called tow trucks if yours wasn't displayed where she could see it. It's a shame to spend that much money on a vacation where you feel you are an unwanted guest. I'm sure it would be great for a group without kids, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it for family's with kids. Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc.; Tuesday, October 22, 2019 Dear guest, thank you for your review. We apologize for any inconvenience you encountered with Owners who live on property and also with the elevator(s) not working at times. We have shared your experience with the Owner and Association Management Company so those items can and will be addressed. We hope you allow us to help you on your next visit by finding you a very family friendly property that will meet all of your expectations. Thank you again for your review.

Sandcastle 1 801 September 2018 We have frequented the Sandcastle properties for 6-7 years now. Always our favorite place to stay as we have family in the area. The red tide was heavy when we arrived so we only used the pool until after Wednesday when they cleaned up the current dead fish and foul odor. The sunsets were still glorious and we always appreciate the amenities the condo offers. However, we were very disappointed with the state of the condo this time. Sand was all over the counters and floors (I vacuumed and mopped the day we arrived), the fan in the den was totally unusable. I called upon arrival and was told no one was working until Monday. They came to fix it on Tuesday and it took over 3 hours to replace it. The owners had nice one touch button technology and he could not figure out how to keep this so he put a black on the wall and said would have to now use the pull chains. We did not complain about the one in the bedroom (you could only use it on one speed with it making noise) because we knew the owners would want to have it replaced to continue using the wall "one touch" button. The wall receptacle in the master bathroom on the left side of the sink was not working either. We reported these things on our departure form but did not want multiple visits of workers during our visit. It is disruptive. We love this unit but were very surprised this time. Hopefully all will be addressed before we visit again. <br/> Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc.; Tuesday, October 2, 2018 Thank you for your will certainly address the issues you noted on your departure. We will be installing a similar fan that was in there but an appointment was necessary with the installer and we wanted you to have a fan as soon as possible rather than go the entire week without one. Thanks again for your review. We are sorry about the natural phenomenon of Red Tide affecting your visit as well.

Nice place but . . . . Very nice condo overlooking the Gulf. Comfy furniture and beds. Everything you need in the kitchen. Floors could use a deep clean and other areas a good dusting. Second day there, we saw the beginning of our battle with cockroaches. Exterminators were brought in three times but we became tired of dealing with the problem. Constantly looking down at the floors and the countertops to see if they were around. Ended up leaving early. The rental agency responded immediately and were wonderful to work with. There was only so much they could do about the problem because it takes quite a while to get rid of a cockroaches. We spoke with other renters and they didn't seem to have a problem with bugs. We would use this agency again but not rent in this building.

A Choice View of the Florida Sunsets We enjoyed ourselves and the condo with a few maintenance and supply issues. The plan of the condo is great and we loved the wrap around balcony. That was our favorite part of the condo. We arrived Saturday and didn't learn until Sunday that we couldn't get the TVs to work and that the coffee pot was not clean or usable. Called the after-hours number and Vickie was very attentive. Had the Spectrum person out there in the afternoon and arranged for Eva to come the next morning (head of housekeeping). I showed her several things and she brought us a new coffee pot, took away the stained bedspread, washed down the dirty shower stall door and ordered the glass door to be caulked (it was loose) that afternoon.She was excellent. Other issues: no pot holders in kitchen, the place mats for table looked dirty, did not use them; filthy dirty floor mat going out to the balcony; no instructions (I think Eva found them) out for use of tv and sound board; could not find iron at first (not with the supplies); most difficult to turn on and off lamp by the door to balcony. All of these are easily addressed but need attention.

Great view.... but condo was dirty We stayed in this condo for a week, While the view is amazing the overall cleanliness of the unit was not in great condition. The floors appeared as though they only swept and never mopped the unit. Within an hour of walking around the inside after arriving the bottoms of our feet were completely black. There were stains on the pillows on the couches and the bedspreads also had some spots.<br/><br/>The tub in the main bathroom was so clogged that after giving our kids a bath it took about 30-40 minutes for the tub to drain. The light above the bathtub and the shower in the master bath did not work. The light switch in the main bath for the light and fan seemed broken and should be replaced.<br/><br/>The master bed was not somewhere I could sleep. You would sink down several inches and just seemed worn out. I had to sleep in the back bedroom.<br/><br/>We notified management on Saturday of the issues and I was asked if it could wait until Monday to fix and I said it was fine. Monday came and went and nobody showed up and never showed up during our stay.<br/><br/>Overall I would not stay, or recommend this condo. There are better ones around for the same price, and they are not filthy like this one. Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals.

Less attention to detail than in the past five years While Lifestyles reacted to our requests for light bulbs (6), only 2 wine glasses, etc, I believe that they should have been pro-active in making sure that those items should have been replaced before we moved in.

Would recommend this unit to others. <br/>We did have one issue when we checked in to the unit, water was leaking from the over-the-sink lights and the floor and counters were soaked. We cleaned up the mess after calling this into the emergency line. Property manager showed up and went to check on the unit above. Never heard anything else - hopefully all is well.

We stayed in this condo for a week, While the view is amazing the overall cleanliness of the unit was not in great condition. The floors appeared as though they only swept and never mopped the unit. Within an hour of walking around the inside after arriving the bottoms of our feet were completely black. There were stains on the pillows on the couches and the bedspreads also had some spots.<br/><br/>The tub in the main bathroom was so clogged that after giving our kids a bath it took about 30-40 minutes for the tub to drain. The light above the bathtub and the shower in the master bath did not work. The light switch in the main bath for the light and fan seemed broken and should be replaced.<br/><br/>The master bed was not somewhere I could sleep. You would sink down several inches and just seemed worn out. I had to sleep in the back bedroom.<br/><br/>We notified management on Saturday of the issues and I was asked if it could wait until Monday to fix and I said it was fine. Monday came and went and nobody sho

Very nice place, well maintained, very nice location. The only thing that could be better is if we could have been given a choice to have housekeeping during our stay. Even if we had to pay extra for it I would have. But overall a 5 star from me!

It was great, everything except for clothes and food was there. Nothing to bring. except I had to get some sugar and the coffee maker was not Keric. A great Gulf experience, lots of beach and sun. Being May, the weather was beautiful. Don't tell the tourists they will ruin it. Parking is limited, so if you have more than one car, ... Limited guess parking. On the first day someone had parked in our assigned spot. But the caretaker promptly called a wrecker and problem disappeared. Didn't happen again.

Our 5th visit to this area, 3rd time in this unit, I was disappointed with the cleanliness upon arrival. This unit is normally spotless. The iron does not work. Happy to find the balcony bistro set is still in good shape. My favorite place to enjoy the sunrise and sunset. Overall great place to visit !

Really good modern updates. Lighting and decor was excellent. Balcony has fantastic view. Thanks for all the beach items, a big plus, even a cooler with ice bag and frozen blue ice. Sliding glass door needed new rollers "very" difficult to open. Working on it when we left.<br/>Would suggest area rugs around the bed.

We enjoyed ourselves and the condo with a few maintenance and supply issues. The plan of the condo is great and we loved the wrap around balcony. That was our favorite part of the condo. We arrived Saturday and didn't learn until Sunday that we couldn't get the TVs to work and that the coffee pot was not clean or usable. Called the after-hours number and Vickie was very attentive. Had the Spectrum person out there in the afternoon and arranged for Eva to come the next morning (head of housekeeping). I showed her several things and she brought us a new coffee pot, took away the stained bedspread, washed down the dirty shower stall door and ordered the glass door to be caulked (it was loose) that afternoon.She was excellent. Other issues: no pot holders in kitchen, the place mats for table looked dirty, did not use them; filthy dirty floor mat going out to the balcony; no instructions (I think Eva found them) out for use of tv and sound board; could not find iron at first (not with the supplies); most diff

While Lifestyles reacted to our requests for light bulbs (6), only 2 wine glasses, etc, I believe that they should have been pro-active in making sure that those items should have been replaced before we moved in. A short inspection of the unit by Lifestyle staff prior to people moving in would have found other items that needed attention as well.

Condo was recently updated with high end upgrades, surpassed our expectations. The views of the beach and ocean were outstanding.

We lived our unit, second year staying in the same unit. However, the WiFi was not working. We only had enough towels for one day, so I had to do laundry every day. Went to the Florida Lifestyles to get more and they could only offer a few extra washclothes. There was mold in the master bathroom shower and mold in the kitchen sink faucet.

This time we were disappointed by the destruction by former tenants in the unit who have destroyed the outside furniture. As well as the comforters on the beds have not been cleaned as same marks on them since previous years. Yes unit was surfaced clean but I am sure owners would not be pleased with how some people do not care about others property and maybe Florida Rentals should take note after each rental to review these things.

From the Owner

Rome got built. We finally finished the gigantic project of knocking the condo down to concrete slab and studs, and completely rebuilding and upgrading the unit to our 5 star resort standards. The condo building is flanked by the Mexican Gulf and the Intercoastal waterway. You will enjoy a sweeping view of the beach and the Gulf, above all adjacent buildings; spectacular sunrise and sunset on the 8th floor spacious wrap-around balcony.
Or you can enjoy the view right from the comfort of your bed or sofa as both the Master and Family Room face the balcony through 8 foot-wide floor to ceiling glass sliders. The other rooms also offer amazing views of the beach and the water. The white sandy beach is your private backyard, graced by herons and pelicans – perfect for jogging, walking or building a sandcastle. At night, you can count the stars and sleep to the soothing sound of gentle waves.
Besides the stunning natural beauty, the inside will be exquisite and full-featured. We are perfectionists who love to travel and stay at great resorts – our singular goal is to make the unit a vacation home where we would enjoy staying. You will be delighted!;
