Interaction with Guests
We will check you in and check you out. Otherwise, the place is all yours as our primary residence is an hour away. We can be there if you have any issues though, as we are self-employed and work from home!
You can take leisurely strolls to the nearby restaurants, bars, shops and of course the beach. Get up and walk to Cafe de Paris via the beach and then relax on the beach and take a dip in the pool and BBQ for lunch. Head back to the beach for the afternoon and then take a stroll to Guppy's for a sunset dinner.
You won't have to get in your car unless you want to. Great neighborhood for walking, running and riding bikes. Not a lot of traffic, so very kid friendly.
There is a trolley bus about 30 paces from the unit that takes you north to Clearwater Beach and south to St. Pete Beach. Cost is $5 and it runs all day!
Other Things to Note
No smoking inside the unit. Feel free to enjoy a cigar or smoke by the pool. Just please be respectful of others.
Please be respectful as this is our getaway spot too. Things happen, so just let us know if they do so we can do something about it. Otherwise, relax and enjoy and let us know what we can do to make your stay more enjoyable!
This was our first experience using airbnb and this trip being our honeymoon I wanted it to be the perfect place. We couldn't have been happier with the experience! While searching for the perfect place, paradise was found! The condo was as advertised and was outfitted with everything you could need at the beach and more. Clean, comfortable, we felt welcomed the moment we opened the door. The area was quiet and not full of big hotels and mobs of tourists. Indian Rocks Beach was just right to relax and enjoy the warmish gulf water. Of all the beaches we explored my wife and I favored Indian Rocks! The neighbors were nice too! Thanks for the tips for local restaurants. Great communication with the host. My wife and I would love to return so I hope this place is still available sometime in the future :)
Paradise Found exceeded our expectations! Home was even more comfortable and attractive than in the photos. Host thought of everything a guest might need while visiting Indian Rocks Beach. We were welcomed with a delicious bottle of wine which was much appreciated after our flight from PA. If we had not come to FL to attend a family wedding, we could have easily spent our entire time at Paradise Found. We were right across the street from the beach and were in walking distance to a nature preserve, restaurants and stores. Maximum amount of thumbs up to our host.
We had a wonderful time in Indian Rocks Beach. Like the other reviewers have said, Justin has gone above and beyond in stocking the unit with everything you could want and more. Beach towels, folding chairs, a large umbrella, extra sunscreen, etc. There are a few great restaurants nearby, a nice little organic produce store and deli a few blocks away, and of course the beach is only one block away (45 seconds walk). If you need a place to stay in the area, you really can't do better! We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else!
Right from the time of booking Justin was a great host. He was always quick to respond to any inquiries we had before travelling down to the condo. The place was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our week away from home. It was close to the beach, restaurants and shops. I enjoyed running on the beach in the morning and then relaxing by the water in the afternoon. We were able to walk back to the condo when we needed to make lunch or dinner which when you have young children is a plus. The neighbours were very friendly and helpful when we were looking for day trip recommendations. I highly recommend this place to others.
Perfektes Appartement! Die Wohnung liegt nur eine Straße vom Strand entfernt, in einem kleinen schönen Städtchen. Das Appartement bietet alles was man zum Leben so braucht, und sogar noch mehr. Die Schlüsselübergabe war sehr unkompliziert. Kommen gerne wieder :-)
The apartment is in perfect condition and there is everything you can think of. Justin was an excellent host and the contact was really nice. Justin and Lisa: Thank you so much! The restaurant recommendation (Keegan´s) was awesome.
Justin was an awsome host. Made us feel very welcome. From the welcome wine to the restaurant recommendations, everything was spot on. Would highly recommend.
I live in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. Consider myself laid back and like to think I've been a few places so far in my travels. Easy going, love suggestions and respectful.
