This condo is in a quiet area of Indian Rocks Beach, close to good restaurants. The interior of the condo is in very good condition with updated furnishings and linens, spacious kitchen and living area. The master bedroom opens to the balcony facing the ocean. The master joins a walk-in closet and bathroom with double sinks and shower.
The balcony is a bonus with chairs, dining and two lounge chairs allowing for sunning or relaxation overlooking the ocean without leaving the building.
The view is awesome, the beach is beautiful, and the pool is kept exceptionally clean with plenty of seating and lounge chairs.
This unit provides beach towels to be washed before departure. We used the washer and dryer to avoid over packing. There is an iron and ironing board in the master closet, a hair dryer in the master bath. Check for supplies before shopping as there was laundry supplies, some paper products, salt and pepper, etc. left by previous renters. Beach chairs and umbrellas were provided and we left a beach canopy we purchased for use during our stay.
The only negatives we can comment on are the master mattress which is losing support and the master television needs updating.
Also, there is no beach service to rent beach chairs and umbrellas. That isn't an issue if you don't mind setting up and carrying the chairs, umbrella back and forth each day.
This is a nice residential section of beach which is more upscale than Treasure Island, yet not as expensive or busy as Clearwater Beach. It's an awesome location for a quiet easy stay on the beach. The location couldn't be more convenient to the PIE airport.
Great building, kept clean and neat in public and pool areas. Keyless entry to building and unit VERY convenient. Perfect location for restaurants, bars and a very nice beach. This unit, however, left much to be desired. I have a hard time believing that Unit 104 in Hamilton House is actually owned by an individual and not a clueless corporation. If someone owns this place there is zero pride of ownership evident and even less consideration for guest comfort. The beds were uncomfortable, there was only one set of sheets for each bed, towels were small and threadbare, there was only one bath mat for two bathrooms, 7 lamps, each with three-way switches but not one had a three way bulb. Light bulbs burned out and no replacements were available. Light in second bathroom worked about 10% of the time and patio light didn't work at all. We discovered the bulb broken off in the socket! Six glass topped tables but no glass cleaner. No cleaning supplies of any kind. Very few hangers and no pants hangers at all. A rag-tag mix of mostly useless pool and beach equipment. Not a single pen, pencil, piece of paper. No games, puzzles, cards at all. There is a set of dominoes now because I bought it and left it there! On arrival we had to set the microwave clock, clock in master bedroom, and clock on coffee maker. Never did we get any sense at all that the owner(s) wanted their guests to feel either welcome or comfortable. I have stayed in many rented condos and this was, by far, the least welcoming, most carelessly equipped one ever!
The plus was that the Internet was fast and reliable and the ice maker in the freezer provided an endless supply of ice. Hardly enough to recommend this unit! DO. NOT. RENT. THIS. UNIT! Choose another one in the building because the location and the beach and view are outstanding.

Loved the condo...Loved the location!! Got to see dolphins a few times from the balcony, also beautiful sunsets. The condo was big, fully equipped including beach chairs, toys, rafts etc. The pool was clean and the gulf was just steps away. Two designated parking spots were an added bonus. Very happy we chose this place and would do it again :)
