“Great Rental Agency Staff * Wonderful Condo Unit * Smoking Neighbor on Adjacent Balcony”
Reviewed 18 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Teeming Vacation Rental staff were very helpful and friendly. One staff member said she stayed at this exact unit, so she was able to answer my many questions about the unit, as well as the geographic area. The rental process was smooth and effortless, thanks to the Teeming Vacation Rental staff.

The condo unit was exactly as shown in the photos in the listing. Very clean, lots of room. Everything was in good working order - not worn out or old.

Great features - a phone in the unit that included free calls in the US, and a washer and dryer. Plenty of towels, and fully equipped kitchen. TV in both bedrooms and in the living room. Balcony faces the Intercostal Waterway, and the building is a short walk across the street to the Gulf of Mexico and a wonderful beach. From our balcony we saw a stingray, and many different types of seabirds, and jumping fish. We saw the sunrise from the balcony, and the sun set on the beach across the street.

This condo is in the town of Indian Shores, Florida, which was not as congested as Clearwater Beach to the north, or Madeira Beach to the south. Gulf Boulevard is the main road that connects this entire barrier island/strip of land, and is easy to navigate. Lots of restaurants with live music, and access to shopping. There are two Publix grocery stores in easy driving distance. About a 30 - 40 minute drive to Tampa International Airport - very convenient.

Disappointments that are probably out of the rental agency's control - this building is supposed to be non-smoking; but, our adjacent neighbors in Unit 102 were regularly on their balcony, both of them smoking cigarettes, with their second hand smoke blowing onto our balcony. And, AC units located beneath the balcony and also outside of the master bedroom were very loud - you could hear them from inside our condo unit.

The walls and ceiling are not well insulated, so noise from the upstairs unit (Unit 105) was quite loud - it sounded like our upstairs neighbors were moving furniture around at 7 AM - daily. They were early risers, up at 7 AM every morning, moving furniture, walking loudly - sometimes this noise went on for a couple of hours. One morning it sounded like they had dropped a piece of heavy furniture, the bang was so loud.

They frequently opened and closed their sliding glass door to their balcony, and we could hear that noise quite loudly. We were on vacation and had hoped to be able to sleep in later than 7 AM, but the noise from upstairs woke us at 7 AM. We considered ourselves 'lucky' that the people above us did not have small children (I could imagine the noise with small children running around upstairs).

Minor tweaks I'd like to recommend - provide recycling trash bins for guests, so we can recycle plastics, aluminum and paper. Install grab bars in both showers, and include a dish drying rack for hand washed dishes.

Be aware that guests are expected to run the dishwasher as they leave, as well as launder any beach towels you use (we did not use any beach towels). Also, there are no elevators. Parking is on the first level and is covered parking; then you walk up one set of stairs to one set of condos, and a second set of stairs to the upstairs units. If you have issues with carrying luggage up one or two flights of stairs, this is not the building for you.

The service from the rental agency was excellent. The condo unit itself is very nice.

“Perfect condo with daily visits from dolphins!”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This condo was perfect for our holiday to Florida. Its a good size and has everything you need for visits to the beach. The pool is great and we often had it all to ourselves.
We had great views from our balcony, beautiful sunrises, lots of wildlife, birds and jumping fish! But the best has to be our daily visits from the dolphins!

Indian Shores is very laid back and its a great place to chill out!
There is also lots to do around and about, aquariums, boat trips, museums and lots more.

We would definitely recommend this condo!

“Beautiful Condo”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here as a family of 4 adults and a 2 year old toddler and had a fab time. It's lovely and clean and has beautiful views of the Intercoastal from the balcony, which my hubby spent every morning and evening on, just relaxing with a book and watching the world and wildlife go by. It's spacious and well laid out and we'd be happy to stay here again

“tooooo hot!”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in July 2015

On the plus side the unit was clean and well stocked. On the down side the AC was out almost the whole time we where there so enjoying the unit was impossible. Daytime hours we had to be out of the unit because of the heat and sleeping was miserable. So not overly satisfied with the stay at all. Would not recommend!

Please note, this review is for a stay in July 2015 and we were unable to identify the guest who submitted the review. This is one of our most popular properties on the Intracoastal and we typically receive rave reviews about it. Our company would not expect a guest to stay in a condo with no air conditioning and would make every effort to fix the problem or move the guest. Respectfully, Jeff and Gina

“Captains Cove was perfect!”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife have started to go to Tampa Bay every year for our Anniversary. We wanted to find a place that had more room than a hotel but still had a view that made it worth the trip to Florida. Captains Cove was it. A very comfortable condo with a great view. It is furnished excellently. We both felt very at home. We will probably make staying here an annual event.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Well equipped and spacious apartment. Fantastic views of the waterway with dolphins swimming by and dozens of different species of birds on the water. Spent hours fishing off the private jetty and caught plenty.

Never managed to find a kettle to make tea but this was a very minor issue.

The apartment and the Indian Shores area made it a very memorable holiday. Booked through Teeming VR who couldn't have been more helpful.

Thank you so much for the review and we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. The view from this condo is spectacular and gives a “bird’s eye view” of all of the water life on the intracoastal waterway. We will be sure to see about purchasing a tea kettle and appreciate the feedback. Jeff and Gina

“Fabulous....”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Over the years my wife and I have rented various condos on the Gulf from Cedar Key down to Sarasota but we prefer Indian Shores as the beach and local amenities are perfect for us.
101 is the best condo we have ever rented due to the central location, fabulous views over the intercoastal waterway. The condo was exactly as described very clean and well maintained. Probably 2 bedroom is a luxury for a couple but we enjoy the added space.
The beach including various excellent restaurants, bars and shops are all within walking distance and bigger stores are within a few minutes driving. We have no hesitation in recommending this property and hopefully will return soon.
