Mary B. from Brighton, recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in September, 2016 We rented the apartment on the beach as we had our son and daughter coming from New Zealand with their respective partners. We were looking forward to getting together as a family. Anyway, they loved the apartment and location and the time passed too quickly for us all.
Jill S. from Cuyahoga Falls, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Fabulous as always. Been using Florida Lifestyles for a long time and have always had a good experience. I have used this specific condo 3 times - and will be using it again. Clean Nice location and very user friendly.
John and Heather C. from Brampton, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in April, 2016 We love the condo location, the amenities and layout. Our particular condo needs some cosmetic upgrades and needs new mattresses. Unfortunately pool was closed last 3 days of stay with no notice posted of closure.
David and Rebecca R. from Fort Wayne, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 Overall very pleased with the stay this year. Condo was clean and in relatively good shape. The oven took some time to heat up and may need a new heating element. Really like the location and the view.
A guest from KNOXVILLE, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 We loved the location of the condo, very easy access to the beach, the pool and the parking. The condo was very nice except for one bedroom that had a very musty smell, did not want to use the closet or the drawers, smell was to strong. We sprayed tryed to air it out didn't help any. The condo had everything needed.
A guest from Madison, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2016 Great spot on the Gulf of Mexico! Beautiful to wake up to and Gulf looks different each day. Weather was colder and rainer this year but dotted with some lovey, sunny days. Others who stay at Beach Cottages are friendly and lots are midwesterners. Complex has a very nice pool, hot tub and pool deck. There are many good restaurants within a short walking or driving distance. Florida Lifestyles is very responsive and good to work with.
Bob & Sue S. from Madison, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 42 days in December, 2015 We just returned home from 6 weeks in this rental. We've been returning 4 years, and love it so. It's like our community away from home, and we have made fast friends there and enjoy our yearly reunion. We did experience some maintenance problems,but they were swiftly attended to.
A guest from Mt. Pleasant, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2015 Another great 2 weeks at Beach Cottages! We love the friendly, family atmosphere. It keeps us coming back! The condo has beautiful views, and you can't beat the location. Close to lots of restaurants, but far enough from the hustle and bustle. Can't wait for next year!
Wayne D. from Mason, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 We arrived and got unloaded to find a beautiful view of the beach and the birds that were with their young in the protected area of the beach. We enjoyed the ocean, pool and local activities. I will definitely be coming back to beach cottage 1 unit 1109!!
Barb A. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 This is the second time staying at the Beach Cottages, only two different units. The unit was exactly as described, beautiful view of the waterfront. We couldn't tell the bird sanctuary was right next door. We were able to see the nesting black skimmer birds. The pool is a great way to relax after coming in from the beach. The outside grills were ok, could use some updates to them.
A guest from Brampton, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 We normally stay at another condo but due to unforeseen circumstances, were moved to Beach Cottage I and we LOVED it! From the beautiful views, the large pool deck and even the gas BBQs. We will definitely be going back.
Ed & KIm S. from Straughn, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 A great place to stay with a variety of things to do within minutes of Beach cottage 1109. We have stayed at Beach Cottage many times and have never been disappointed. A great pool area and a beautiful beach. The location is away from the crowds of people, but close to everything you want to do. We will see you again next year.
A guest from kokomo, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 locating amongst everything, very clean room, but had major problems with keys entering and exiting every time we went somewhere. basement door lock was broke 4 days while we were there and also needed assistance getting out, impossible for kids or females with hands full
A guest from Linwood, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 It is a great place to stay. Yes the bird sanctuary had a little smell every once in a while but it was bearable. The carpets could be shampooed they have a little sticky feeling to them. Other than that it is a great place!
Paul P. from Braintree, MA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 we have stayed at many properties and this was the worst. the smell when we first came in was so bad we had to buy spray and do the entire condo. then i wanted to wash the dishes before we used them but no soap, there was no starter set for anything. we could not walk in our bare feet because the rug was nasty. the air conditioner leaked, the main bathroom shower was so dark and no shelves for shampoo. when i first got to the rental office the women said (its a beautiful unit) I knew we were in trouble. the beach and location was the only good part of staying at this place. thank god the weather was great!
Virgil D. from Decatur, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2015 Very disappointed. Not clean and needs some up keep and remodeling. Master Bath so dark/shower could not pass safety for anyone -- could not get anyone to take care of screen doors and plumber came day we were packing to leave. need new kit appliances
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc. Thank you for your review. We will let the Owner know your thoughts on his color schemes and appliance requests. The shower has no safety issue other than it may have not been bright enough for you,. We contacted a plumber as soon as you notified us of a problem and that was the soonest they could come. I am glad it did not affect your vacation since you sent him away the day BEFORE your departure. We received no complaint on cleaning from you or we would have been happy to correct any issues. Thanks again for your review.
A guest from Chestnut Hill, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 Great stay. Very friendly environment, safe. Fantastic for kids with large outdoor heated pool and hot tub. Beach was beautiful.
A guest from Madison, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2015 Our stay was very pleasant. This is a great location on the beach with sunset views from the deck. The condo interior has had upgrades including new couches, a remodeled accessible master shower (Wish the shower had a grab bar), and a new dishwasher. Beds marginaly comfortable. The complex pool is salt water and comfortably warm.
Bob & Sue S. from Madison, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in January, 2015 Another GREAT month at this mostly wheelchair accessible condo (1400+ sf) (Exception is narrow MBth doorway where walker is required to enter) New MBth walk in shower with shower curtain accommodates transfer seat nicely. Low toilet requires own riser and portable grab bars. Appreciated new living room furniture. Same great unobstructed gulf view, electronics in good working order, Sun Coast Trolley tranport outside door, exceptional rec area(also w/c access.)with new salt water pool where 89 degree water made swimming comfy even in cooler temps,and lovely flat packed beach we could bike. Friendly condo community. Management very responsive to all requests.
A guest from Des Moines, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 My husband and I had stayed here with his sisters last March. We decided to have our family vacation in October and knew this condo would be perfect for the 4 of us. We loved the balcony to eat breakfast and enjoy beautiful sunsets. Weather is perfect in October! The condo is clean and beds were comfortable.We only had a problem with the shower curtain rod kept falling down but management came immediately to fix it. This place is a gem. We'll definitely return.
Brian C. from Kansas City, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Great location, huge roomy condo in need of some updating. Place desperately needs new beds and new furniture. Carpet could use a cleaning or replacement.
Paddy M. from Maunsells Park, Galway recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 apt 1109 in Beach cottages 1 is perfectly located with ease of access to beach and pool. Balcony gives perfect view of the spectacular sunsets on the gulf. Only possible downside is that with a breeze coming the wrong direction (just one evening - not the prevailing direction) the bird sanctuary next door gave off an unpleasant odor. Fantastic family holiday venue. Very well equipped apartment but cleaning service could work a little harder to maintain the standard.
A guest from South Easton, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 We finally came back to our favorite place - we love Indian Shores and we loved everything about our vacation. Florida Lifestyles is a pleasure to work with and we can't wait to do it again!
A guest from Madison, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2014 The location is beautiful! Beautiful pool and pool area. General maintenance of the condo complex excellent. The condo size fit our needs. Kitchen equipped for doing some cooking. The property management company very helpful and responsive to issues that developed. Cleanliness of condo marginal. Furniture worn but usable. Couch and loveseat could use some cleaning.
Bob & Sue S. from Madison, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 2014 Beautiful location; Gulf front so unobstructed views of water and sunsets; Nearby shopping and excellent eating places; Condo complex very well maintained; Spacious pool deck with heated pool and hot tub; Wonderfully flat packed beach for walking and biking; Friendly neighbors. This condo was chosen as it was mostly accessible for wheelchair bound. The interior of the condo could use updating but had a well equipped kitchen, important as we prepare most of our meals. The property management company promptly addressed any problems we encountered.
BOB S. from Cuyahoga Falls, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Unit was very nice. Excellent view. We had a 2 year old and a 6 year old and we never felt nervous about the decor. It was very warmly decorated without a lot of breakables to worry about. With the full size bed in both rooms - we found we didn't even need the third bedroom. VERY convenient. Will be going back to this unit.
RONDA R. from SARASOTA, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 we rented 5 units in this condo for a week. 3 from Florida lifestyles and 2 romothr source. The units from Fla. lifestyles were all very good. Units rented from private owners needed some maintenance.This unit was very good. overall the Condo was great and the pool area a great gathering space for the group.

A guest from GREENWOOD, SOUTH CAROLINA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 We did enjoy the stay, every nice clean water, the birds were a little smelly but the kids really enjoyed them. Great pool area. The key access to "everywhere" was very anoying. Besides this it would have been a 5 star overall stay.
