I stayed in another unit in at Sandcastle 1 last year, and it was laid out exactly like this one. Very accommodating for my family. There were clothes left in a drawer in the bedroom along with garbage. These drawers were definitely not checked, let alone cleaned. There was a used toothbrush left in the bathroom. The rug in the living room was sticky and needs a deep cleaning. We found a pitcher of lemonade in one of the cabinets for some reason. I understand it is not feasible to deep clean a condo every Saturday betweens renters, but you could tell it hadn't been deep cleaned in quite some time. There was very thick dust on the furniture and under the beds. I brought these issues to Pinellas Vacation Rentals' attention via a response to an email they sent me, but I did not receive a response. Also: the check out instructions ask you to do clean and put away all dishes; however, there was a load of dishes in the dishwasher when we arrived. I love this location. Indian Shores is my favorite beach in the US. It is quiet and great for families, but you can be in Clearwater in all the action in 20 minutes. I will stay at Sandcastle 1 again, but not in this particular unit. I clean enough at home...I don't want to clean on vacation, too.

We arrived and immediately were greeted by about 25 other people checking in with only 1 elevator working and my mom is 75! 7 flights of stairs later we made it to our 78 degree room. The door was super sketchy and so is the condo. Don't be lured by the great video or pics, it's not what the place looms like inside. The 2nd bedroom is really a sitting area with a headboard not even connect to the bed or wall or I'm sure I'll get a great night sleep along with rotting molding in the bedroom too and what looks like peeling paint. The entire condo needs some serious TLC. I was told a maintenance person would come to secure the headboard and to fix the broken closet but NO ONE EVER SHOWED. We rent each year and we've never had an experience like this!!

I'm sorry that one of the elevators was out when you arrived. The second elevator was working but on a busy turnover Saturday, that may have been kind of busy. But you did not need to go up the stairs. We are told by the building maintenance group that the other elevator will be working later this week. The AC works fine. We turn the temp up to 78 in between guests. But if you simply turn the thermostat down to 72, the rooms will cool down quickly. There is no mold in that bedroom. We will get our handyman out to reattach that headboard shortly.

We have an incredible time! My husband and I took our 3 adult daughters and our 6 year old on a 20+ hour drive to arrive at our condo in the middle of the night.. It was absolutely fantastic.. We all stayed up for another couple of hours, checking out the balcony, the beach, and the condo.. We stayed for a week and there honestly was not one thing that I needed that was not provided. We were so excited to find the beach activity assortment in the balcony closet.. were thrilled to be within walking distance of CVS, countless yummy restaurants, and the most beautiful beach.. and within driving distance of Clearwater Aquarium and all the many activities available there. We did a dolphin tour and drove out to Tarpon Springs, Sponge Capital of the World.. It was fabulous and we will definitely be back! Thanks!

We vacation in Florida to be outside and enjoy the ocean. We are beach lovers. We typically aren't too picky about the condo itself. However, this condo is in desperate need of repair. From the front door to the balcony and everything in between. The front door needs replaced. I think with one swift kick you could knock it down. Not very secure. The kitchen appliances need replaced. You don't have to do stainless steel or top of the line, just nice clean appliances. The dishwasher is gross. The washer and dryer....also GROSS. The washer smells awful because you have to keep the door closed at all times due to the location. Take off the door going into that hallway and you would eliminate that problem. No need for a door there anyway. The living room furniture needs to be pitched. The sofa is broken down. All of the balcony furniture needs replaced. Just trash it. The view however, is amazing. Which is our saving grace. Just would have been nice to have furniture that isn't broken and maybe even comfortable to set in. We arrived on Saturday and Sunday morning my husband made a trip to WalMart to buy new throw rugs for the front door, balcony, kitchen and both bathrooms. There were either none in the unit or what they had needed replaced. He also bought and replaced the shower head in the master bath. There were also no beach chairs in the unit so we spent $60 on three new chairs. Also there was only 1 elevator working for 5 of the 7 days we were there. When we arrived on Saturday afternoon the line for the elevator was so long we took the stairs...7 floors....with luggage. Overall, we would NOT recommend this unit to anyone. We had a great time in Florida and loved the beach. But perhaps pick a different unit.

On arrival, the unit appeared okay, but we quickly discovered many issues that could have been remedied with simple maintenance & care. The one thing we laughed at our entire visit was the MASTER BATH shower curtain - baby monkeys and birdies - really in the master bath! Not to mention the big wad of black hair that was stuck to it - GROSS! Also, the soap holder was broken & outside shower curtain was moldy. Personally thought the towels provided were something pulled from a rag pile: most were bleach spotted and ragged. The kitchen was another area we became frustrated with. All the utensils and glasses/cups were filthy. Anytime we intended on using utensils and kitchenware it required a good cleansing first. And no drawer liners which gave the drawers a disgusting appearance with all the dirt and grit in there. The stove had hard crust on the burners and the oven looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months! The refrigerator has some sort of leak that has been going on for some time because there are mold spots on the wall next to the frig and in the back bedroom adjoining wall. We thought some wet towels had caused the bed comforter to get wet - we learned it was the frig. And continuing on, the beds in all the rooms have sleep-spots or "bowls" for you to sleep in. It is quite visible just by looking at them, let alone actually feeling it when you are in them. The master bed actually had a bowl and a decline so when you rollover you may very well roll off since you are on a slant. The 2nd bed with the queen beds includes a TV - with no remote - get used to getting up to use it!!! Universal remotes are inexpensive today!! Not sure the sheets were even washed since we were sticking to them during the night, they sure didn't smell fresh. So why didn't we just wash them, well that leads to the washer/dryer unit. The unit is moldy inside and rusty outside. We washed some towels and they smelled bad afterward. And that water catch thing in the back of the washer is awful/filthy/DISGUSTING - obviously not checked in quite some time. Lots of dust and junk floating around back there, so we weren't messing with that at all! The beach view is fabulous, but the balcony needs a good bleach scrub or KILZ paint to get rid of the grime on the floor. Our recommendation to the owner - fire your cleaning/maintenance staff! The condo sucked overall, but the beach/view was great. The owner could spend about $100 to fix a majority of these issues.

This condo is in bad need of some upgrading and TLC. The 2 doors at the entrance need some painting and cleaning bad. This gives a bad impression before you open the door. Some improvements have been made such as the new tile and laminate flooring, though I believe the tile throughout would be a better choice. The bedrooms on the east side need drapes or some way to keep the early morning light out. The A/C didn't work very well. I checked the filter and it was completely stopped up. I reported it and got no response. I ended up buying one myself and installing it which improved the cooling. The coils, both inside and out, need cleaning. Outside unit is in storage closet off deck (poor design). There was a sign on dryer about making sure water was in the box behind dryer. Well it was bone dry and full of lint. The dryer exhausting back into the living makes the A/C have to work that much harder, beside the fact you're pumping all that lint out inside, to be pulled back into A/C filter. Poor design again. Bathrooms need updating. Cleaning of unit prior to our arrival was lacking. Lot of dust and lint around probably caused a lot because of dryer setup. I was disappointed with the stay considering the cost. The pool area and hot-tub were nice and well kept. Ceiling fans in bedrooms a plus.
