The grounds and community at Sandy Beach are wonderful! It was great to spend our time at the pool and hot tub. The nice paths and area stores were great to walk to as well.

Loved the condo! The condo was clean and had enough room to give my teenagers some space. Close to the beach, and easy to drive to Clearwater and Tampa. Great location. I needed to change my vacation dates, and I was easily accommodated. Had a great experience, and plan on renting here again.

Great location!! Clean rooms and plenty of space. Kitchen cabinets are less than desirable and could use an update as the drawers feel like they are going to fall out when you open them. Beach is close but if you want to take chairs or other items you will want to drive.

Just a short walk to the beach, and right on a canal leading to St John’s Pass. Got to see dolphins right out the window. Lovely spot to enjoy coffee in the morning, or drinks in the evening. Close to all that we wanted to do.

This condo is decorated very nicely and we had a delightful and relaxing time. We saw dolphins and manatees right our door, as well as being able to fish. The pool was always kept very clean and refreshing.

With the condo being just off the beach, it was quiet for our young family. And it was still within walking distance to the public beach access. Loved the breakfast nook overlooking the intercoastal and the clean rooms!

Extremely clean, nice, and with plenty of room at this property. Very convenient distance to the beach and other things to do. This place was perfect for me and my family. Our first rental fell through after we drove 10hrs and no one let us know at all. We had nowhere to go so I had to find another place to stay. This place was even better. It also had more rooms and an extra bathroom. We loved staying here. It's very convenient to everything and a short walk to the beach. Very clean and pretty on the inside as well as the outside.

This quaint property located on the canal is a little piece of Paradise!!! A short 5-minute walk to the beautiful shores of Treasure Island as well as a pool on the property. The unit is newly decorated and well equipped too. We enjoyed fishing off the dock with the local friendly Blue Heron Eduardo! Dolphin views up close and personal making daily visits through the canal waters! Dining and entertainment within walking distance make this affordable property convenient for all of your beach fun! We can't wait to come back!

Very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Perfect distance from Gulf Blvd....close enough to the beach but far enough from the noise. Love seeing dolphins in the canal while enjoying drinks on the patio. Will absolutely stay here again!

We loved this place! Short walk to the beach, and lots of restaurants! We fished off the dock and caught something every day! Paddleboarding or kayaking would be great if you have one. Other people saw dolphins and a manatee swim by! My 15 yr old grandson used the sunroom as a private place to sleep, and it has curtains, so that worked out great for us.

Good location. Some walking or you could take freebeachride.com to get around. You just tip the driver. Nice location on bay and pool overlooks the bay. The beach was not too crowded and it was a beautiful view. John's pass is 5 min car ride or 30 min walk. Overall great time and room as described. Wish we could have stayed longer. We would definitely come back. If you want to do a lot of excursions then I would rent a car. Of note, no dishwasher. Washer and dryer free. Very comfortable room temp. It was a good sleeping temperature and the mattresses were comfy. Good response time from owner and manager. Thanks again!

We loved the location, and the condo was the perfect size for the two of us. The area is quiet, and you can fish without leaving the property. It was too cold for us to swim, but the pool looks nice. The TVs were an issue, but the property manager (Sherry) was great and came right over, and also answered the phone on a Sunday to help. We were a little surprised there wasn't a dishwasher, but the stocked kitchen is pretty small, and the listing never mentioned one. All in all, it was a good place to stay and we would recommend it.

Short walk to the beach! Fishing and pool steps from the unit as well. Small kitchen but who wants to cook on vacation anyway! The unit was perfect for a family of 4. Beach was an easy walk and we fished right next to the building and enjoyed the pool.

My husband and I used the enclosed porch every morning for coffee and reading. It was great to be inside, yet outside especially for the morning to relax with a wonderful view of the canal. The bed was firm and very comfortable. We did use the kitchen daily and had everything one would need for cooking...even a full-size refrigerator in the small space. The location was perfect if you were like us who loved to fish off the dock, yet loved to walk on the beach. Just over one block away from beach access. I was up each morning for a walk on the beach as well as the mile boardwalk. The one thing that snagged us, in the beginning, was how to get into the condo! The security pad did not look like any we had used before, but once we figured out it was a touch screen, we were in! Everyone at the condo was so friendly yet quiet and respectful.

We enjoyed the location by the canal. We especially enjoyed the enclosed patio. the weather was cooler than normal while we were there, so we could still enjoy the birds, the water, and the view. The pool is nice. The washer and dryer (at no extra charge) were really nice. Nice to have a dedicated parking spot.

Everything I dreamed it to be! The location is ideal! One block to the beach and also a "jolly trolley" stop. Johns's pass is about 5 minutes away. it's like the boardwalk and has stuff for kids to do. We rode the trolley all the way to Clearwater beach and it was free. Walgreens is also nearby for forgotten essentials. Britt's pizza a block away was very good. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool, and it was relaxing to lay next to the bay and watch them swim. The apartment was very clean and it exceeded my high expectations. Everything you could need and ice cold!! After a long day in the sun coming home to a nice cold home was perfection. I can't wait to stay here again!!

Centrally located to many attractions like John's Pass, Clearwater Beach, and St.Pete. Lots of great local dining choices with family-friendly activities within walking distance. Lots of space to relax. Walk right across the street to the beach, enjoy the pool on site, or sit out on the deck to enjoy the ocean breezes. An awesome stay!

We booked this on a whim without knowing much about the area. What a pleasant surprise once we arrived. The top-floor corner unit across the street from the public beach parking gave us a great view of the water without having to pay ridiculous prices for a beachfront condo. We were also happy to find that we were a short 5-minute drive from a couple of supermarkets. We were able to do a little shopping and cook meals throughout the week. The kids loved being able to alternate between spending time at the pool and the beach. The traffic noise was the only thing that we could mark as a negative but we were able to block it out most of the time and it even became a running joke that led to a lot of family laughter. This was a great option for a relaxing family getaway and we would highly recommend it.

We stayed at La Coquina 306 over the 2021 New Year's Holiday. The condo was extremely spacious (even more so than the pictures indicated), so we were pleasantly surprised! The bedrooms were also very spacious and easily fit our group and all of our stuff. The real winner is the large balcony with an unobstructed view of the Gulf! Each morning we were able to enjoy our cup of coffee while looking out over the sparkling water. It was just a short walk to the beach (the Public Beach access is right across the street) and there were several shops and dining options within walking distance for us to grab takeout to bring back to the condo for dinner. The street outside can be a bit loud at times but calmed down overnight, so sleeping was not an issue. The beds were comfortable and clean! Thanks for a great vacation!

This condo has an updated kitchen and a luxurious master bathroom. The balcony is HUGE and is direct across from a town beach parking lot with a great view of the gulf - some mornings we even saw dolphins swimming while drinking our coffee. The place felt very spacious and great for hanging out. The decor is tastefully done and creates a beachy and calm feeling. An easy walk to the beach where you can rent chairs and a cabana tent. A short walk to the tiki hut snack shack for drinks and food. The pool is clean and nice and the tiki umbrella tables provide nice shade. Dinner on the balcony is just perfect with the gorgeous sunset over the gulf!

We stayed June 7th-14th, 2022. We absolutely loved the condo and the location was great as well. The street separating the condo and the beach was loud but nothing to ruin your stay over. The condo was clean and very spacious. It is on the first floor but it is above the covered parking so you would have to take a flight of stairs or ride the elevator up one. The condo was not too busy or loud with people. The speedway right next door was very convenient for us to walk to daily for fountain drinks or whatever else we needed on a whim (turns out that was pickles and cold medicine). The balcony overlooks the pool. The street and a parking lot are between you and the beach but you can still see the water and palm trees. The beach was never too crowded and there were a few shops and restaurants within walking distance. The owner provided three beach chairs, two umbrellas, and two small styrofoam coolers which were so extremely helpful! I emailed 48 hours before checkout to ask for a late checkout (our flight wasn’t until 6 pm) and was told that was no problem. We would stay again!

From the minute you walk in the front door and see the view, you know you got the right place. The master was nice and spacious with a very nice bathroom. The smaller bedroom was nicely furnished and the beds were very comfortable. The spacious living room had very comfortable furniture (I would love to have a recliner like that!) and the kitchen was awesome. It was absolutely wonderful to have a nice sized and perfectly placed, assigned parking spot in an area where parking can sometimes be a problem. We had no issues with anything at all. I was in email contact several times with the property manager and each time I got an almost immediate response. The photos were accurate and the place was spotless. Everything was in working order. The beach was direct across the street and very easily accessible as the lighted crosswalk is right in front of the condo. There are several eateries within walking distance and I highly recommend Coastal Taco. There is a view of the small pool from the balcony but we did not use it. We had a wonderful time and I would definitely request this unit again.

We planned a last-minute trip around Christmas and the booking went very smoothly. Check-in was easy and the property was great. We spent many hours next to the pool and my son enjoyed swimming. The beach is across the street but I loved that I could still watch people walking and still feel the beach experience. It was a quick walk across the street. The property had many restaurants within walking distance. I had a question about the stay and the management company was very helpful and friendly. I would stay here again!

The condo is clean and very comfortable. The beds were great. The pool was wonderful And being right across the road from Madeira Beach was a great location. I contacted the management company two times during our stay and they were friendly and helpful. Gulf Boulevard was pretty busy and there was road noise. one morning it was cooler and we did have coffee on the deck. The noise was not too bad, and the view of the gulf was great. The college visit, discovery Cove, the aquarium, and the boardwalk All made the visit a great experience for our three generations!

We really enjoyed this property and its proximity to the beach. I chose this location to celebrate my wife’s birthday. I had plans to visit other local beaches. But the luxury of walking across the street was just too inviting to go anywhere else. We went to the beach every day. We enjoy going out to the sandbar as the tide went out in the afternoon. This property had everything you needed and more than we expected. We have experienced beachgoers but the property had chairs and umbrellas that you could borrow. That’s super nice. My daughter loved the fridge and suggested that we get one for our home:). We definitely would recommend this property and hope to visit it again in the future.

The condo is just like the pictures. It was spacious and clean. Directly across the street from the beach. You can see the ocean from your balcony due to is no building directly across from you. Easy 1-minute walk just across the street which has a crosswalk to use which made it simple for my husband and me with a 4-year-old. Loved that there were chairs and beach umbrellas to use. The only drawback is street noise but that wouldn’t stop me from coming back. Had a wonderful time!!
