We stayed in 202 for 4 weeks over the holidays. We have rented in Indian Rocks Beach for 3 years and this year we chose Casa dePlaya because the condo was larger and we needed a larger place because we have a new addition to the family. The family enjoyed their stay this year. The condo is charming and the decor is carefully thought out....very clean too. The owner provided a port-a-crib, stroller, and booster high chair for use in the condo. The pool was clean and our family enjoyed many good times in the pool and on the beach. The condo grill area is clean and easy to use. The assigned parking space for the condo is quite tight and we ended up parking in the guest spots (only a few on a first come basis). The walls are thin and it is easy to hear the neighbors and the thundering footsteps above.
The kitchen is functional and the owner had just installed beautiful quartz countertops. However, he phoned us the day before we left for our rental and informed us that the backsplash wasn't in and was there a day or two when we would be out of the property so it could be installed....didn't know what to say because we had so many in our family there to enjoy the beach and rest. Also wanted us to remove a cabinet door so it could be test painted for repainting....wasn't able to accommodate either request but am sure that it is now done beautifully.
The bedrooms are nice and large and bedding quite comfortable.
There is a protective film covering for the patio doors which look out over the pool and ocean and this helps block the sun which sets over the ocean. There are shades for the patio doors as well. The view of the ocean is breath-taking...
It was customary in our previous rentals for the owner/management to start the renters out with paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher pods and liquid. However, there were only a few sheet so paper towels on the roll as well as the toilet paper and no dishwasher pods and very little dishwashing liquid.
The owner uses as towel/linen service and it replaced the towels/linens once mid-way through our 4 week stay. The replacement towels however differed from the towels when we arrived and were very poor quality. There is a stackable washer/dryer in the unit and although it is older, it functioned very well. There were only 4 beach towels for a 6 person rental.
The condo is located within walking distance of many fine eateries which are very reasonably priced. Internet was very slow...it didn't work in the master bedroom.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: A good condo

We just stayed in Unit 205 at Casa De Playa in December, 2016. It was a great unit, but I'm talking about the condo building itself in this review.
Indian Rocks Beach is a fabulous, small Florida town between the Gulf of Mexico & the Intercoastal. We've vacationed here 6 weeks, finding the people friendly, and we love the restaurants, beach, & sunset views.
Casa De Playa is well maintained, with clean common areas, and a beautiful pool with spacious deck areas. Private beach entrance behind the pool area. The garage spaces are good. Elevator and stairs too. Being right on Gulf Blvd. it's easy to get to the local restaurants, and the bridge to go over to Largo for stores.
Drawbacks ---- There was a lack of good sound insulation construction between the units & floors. Wood, not cement & blocks. You can hear the neighbors quite easily. Plus the Casa units on the South end are open to potential noise from the Granger House rental property right next door.
The balcony views of the beach and Gulf are magnificent! Sunsets are awesome! That is the best feature here.
Hope you enjoy your vacation here as much as we did.
Cheers! ----- Ken

We stayed at casa de playa condo 204 for 1 month, it was our 2nd time staying here. Location was great, direct ocean front you can walk to restaurants and some nice nature parks. Condo is modern,carpet needed to be cleaned. It's a little noisy but I guess that's to be expected. We had a very nice month.

This unit (208) is in dire need of some attention. Bed linens, bath towels, and new Master bedroom furniture, The TV'S in the bedrooms are from the Fred Flintstone era, A fesh coat of paint would be nice also.

Well kept smaller size condo building. Three floors, elevator and pool. We stayed in 212 an ocean front 2 bedroom. Was the cleanest unit we have rented in years of coming to Indian Rocks. I think that might be because the property is managed by a company 3 palms and they run what seemed to me to be a tight ship. When we go back to IRB we will either rent this same condo or other building 3 Palms manages. Thank you Jill. The condo itself is roomy, good size bedrooms. Master Bed is hard. I liked it my sister did not. The pictures are true to the unit. Furniture is worn somewhat but again it was clean and the view is FABULOUS. The only con is that they use keys to get to and from the beach and pool area. Its doable but would be better if they offered more keys per unit for that.

Room Tip: Unit 212, 2 bedroom, corner unit.
