The location of The Pointe is excellent in Indian Shores. We found that the furniture in the condo was not comfortable, and suffered from constant wear and tear. I think the condo owner should give this situation some attention. The beds in the condo did not have much support to afford a restful sleep. This is another maintenance issue that should be addressed. We prefer to rent in Florida in February by the month not from Saturday to Saturday. Florida Lifestyle Vacations, the rental agency should give this some consideration. This situation has caused us to look for rental opportunities elsewhere. Our comments were invited by the rental agency and kindly accept our comments as constructive criticism.

Our second time at Pointe Condo #502. Booked for 2018 with Cathy Gable again. What a wonderful person. Always try to pay a visit to thank her for being so helpful and great to deal with. Hats off to Cathy and Florida Lifestyle Vacations.

A very nice location and clean condo. The view from the condo balcony is superb. The kitchen appliances were excellent. Newer foldup outside chairs for the beach would be an asset.
Vernie M.on 01/14/2017
Good overall, I didn't like the assigned parking.The car was sprayed by lawn sprinkler at night. Wi-Fi needs to be updated with a secure router. Great view. Quiet. Close to several restaurants. Direct oceanfront.
Belinda A.on 09/17/2016
We loved our stay! The unit was very nice and had lots of room, everything was clean and in good condition! We liked that it was right on the beach,,,not a long walk. The balcony was great to watch sunsets and enjoy morning breakfast. Hope to go back!!!

An excellent vacation experience and a comfortable condo.
Maggie H.on 09/19/2015
Wonderful. We had everything we needed. I especially loved the view and, yes, the washer and dryer. Great family vacation.

WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO GO TO INDIAN SHORES AND ALL YOUR CONDOMINIUM IS VERY CLEAN WITH THE BEST LOCATION AND THE BEST VIEW THANKS YOU AND WE COME BACK SOON

Florida Lifestyles was a great experience. Every bit of the money I spent was worth in. The condo was perfect for myself and my girlfriend. I plan to try and come back next year and maybe bring another couple with us. The condo, when we arrived, was clean and overall better than I was expecting. It's location is nice because there is public beach access but the area near the building never gets to crowded like it does further down the beach. My experience here was one of the best and I intend to be back!
Helen D.on 08/30/2014
Great apartment. Conveniently located between Clearwater and St John's Boardwalk. Great beach. Loved our 7 night stay. It was relaxing and quiet...exactly what we were looking for.
David M.on 07/05/2014
was told the elevator was going to getting repaired was not expecting a total rebuild with jack hammering and hammer drilling a 7 in the morning other than that We enjoyed our stay
Jennifer B.on 06/28/2014
My family rented this condo the week of July 4th. It was super clean with the best view. Just steps to the beach & crystal clear ocean!

The property at The Pointe 502 is a well appointed unit on a beautiful beach. The issue is the unit is on the 5th floor and the elevator has had long standing maintenance problems and is only available intermittently. This may not be a problem for some, but we are a retired couple and my husband has lung cancer which makes climbing 5 flights of stairs in the heat out of the question. This ruined our stay. We hesitated to go out, as we didn't know if the elevator would be working to get us back upstairs. We had out of town guests arrive Wednesday, planning to spend the night. The elevator was not in operation that day, and they were not able to do the stairs, so our plans were ruined and they never came in. From talking to people in the building, we were told the elevator has been like this for quite awhile and everyone is well aware of it. We feel Florida Lifestyle should have warned us about the issue, and we would have chosen another property. They did not act in the interest of the client.

I can't say enough good things about the management company. Florida lifestyle rentals.
The unit we stayed in at the Pointe condo, the elavator was broke on and off for the first three days before the management company moved us to a lovely condo a few blocks away.
Chris & Denise N.on 05/10/2014
Excellent location. Great view off balcony. Walking distance to many restaurants etc.
Tessie H.on 03/22/2014
Furniture looks nice but very uncomfortable especially the couch. We had poor weather and had to stay inside most of the week and it was unbearable to sit on couch. Not enough blankets.
Janell B.on 03/15/2014
This condo is beautiful, the location is great and the property management team was wonderful. We will rent here again.
Robert W.on 02/22/2014
The property was nice, but it does need a new bed.
Don & Helen H.on 02/01/2014
Good experience, and will return in 2015, to a different location. The property at Pointe 502 could use a more thorough cleaning and better lighting. A good value though, for the price.
Aaron A.on 01/01/2014
Place and location was excellent but vacation was hindered by cold weather.
Jason and Andrea P.on 10/25/2013
This condo is great. From the LR/kitchen layout which is a roomier, wider living area than the typical and larger 2/2 to the proximity to the water (actually much closer to the waters edge than other direct gulffront buildings, this place was perfect.
Gorgeous granite in the kitchen and very nice upgraded sofa/chairs in the LR
And the price was an absolute bargain. (yes it was late October/early November).
Mgmt was great. Had one problem when I got there with a router that wasn't working with my computer and they got it fixed the next day!
The elevator did go out once during the 3 weeks I was there but there is a number in the lobby and I called him and it was fixed in 45 minutes. Apparently it just pops a breaker and you just have to re-set it.
All in all, I am looking for a place like this to buy! Wonderful area too and a very quiet lovely part of the beach. Enjoy!
Stehpanie H.on 10/12/2013
There is a major problem when you rent a 5th floor condo and the elevator does not work. I overlooked the first two times during the week when the elevator would not work and we walked up and down to the 5th floor.
It became unacceptable when the elevator did not work on Saturday morning when it was time to check out. I had to carry everything down five flights of stairs at four o'clock in the morning.
How do you expect people to do business with your company when this is allowed to happen.
I would be very hesitant to rent in this building again unless there was some kind of assurance that the elevator is fixed. Apparently this is an ongoing issue and at the least Florida Lifestyles should have warned of this situation.
Tracie J.on 08/09/2013
As I noted on the survey turned in at end of stay, the unit was quite clean. However, the mattresses need to be replaced; they were lumpy and soft. The unit needed better reading lighting in the living room; lamps were not conducive to reading. The condo's elevator was not in service periodically and we were on the 5th floor; management did respond promptly to calls, but it was annoying to have to place several calls during the stay. Parking space for the unit was outside the covered area--rain and neighboring condo's sprinklers got us wet nearly every day.
Ryan M.on 07/20/2013
I had a wonderful time. I loved the unit, the ocean views and sunset were spectacular. I also like the fact that it was a small complex. I felt safe and had my privacy too.
Great experience. I'm ready to do it over again.
Christine C.on 06/22/2013
We had a great time. Loved the furnishings in the condo, balcony and view was fantastic. The condo was very clean and we appreciated that.
On the downside, the condo building needs an outside shower to wash your feet off from the beach. The beds were not very comfortable (too soft)including the pull out sofa.
In general, we enjoyed the property and would return. Great location. My only suggestions would be to replace the mattress on the queen bed which is of poor quality and not comfortable. The other suggestion would be to advise cleaners to do a more thorough job. I would say it was only "spot cleaned" at best prior to our arrival. We picked up pieces of a broken glass for days and the place needed dusting badly. Also I'm guessing that one element in the water heater is burned out.......based on how quick you run out of hot water.
Quiet location. Beautiful beach. Close to many places (restaurants, stores, sites).
Nice condo - 2nd time at this condo. Very noisy this time due to updates going on next door early morning hours. Would return again.
We enjoyed our 11 nights stay at condo 502. The condo was clean and quiet. That is very important to us. The view was amazing. Was glad to have two beach chairs and umbrella for the beach. We bought two beach towels and left them for the next renters.
The sofa bed mattress needs to be changed. The sheet on the double bed kept coming off because the mattress cover keeps coming off. But both mattresses were firm. The condo is perfect for two. We enjoyed many candle lit suppers on the balcony. The restaurants and grocery stores are close by. You will need a car for major shopping. Winn Dixie and Publix are great grocery store. We will be back!
Cathy Gable is so efficient and friendly. She helped us find this cute condo. This is a small building only 20 units. All units are Gulf front. Each unit has an assigned parking space.
Great condo in a great location, just a short ride from great breakfast at Sweet Sage, Drinks/Dinner at Sea Breeze, Salt Rock Grill or The Pub and easy access to shopping. The beach was clean, and the view from the deck was superb. This is an excellent well cared for condo, the description and photos were spot on. It had everything needed for a short or long stay. Although the neighborhood is safe, having secure access to the building was appreciated. The bedroom offers a queen and full size bed, which would become tight for four as they are up against walls on one side. The washer/dryer in the unit is a plus.
The team at the management company made the reservation process simple, and easily accommodated an off hours arrival.
It was the best vacation rental our family.could have for.our.first family.vacation..
Our stay was without incident. Easy access to the beach and very quiet building. Appreciated the laundry convenience. Note to owner, it would be nice to have more updated kitchen amenities in the way of pots and pans. We didn't find the key to turn on outside shower until last day(perhaps a note for future renters is in order)
For our first trip to Florida it was awesome. The condo was very clean and well stocked kitchen to cook in. This place had plenty of room for our family of four and having the washer and dryer was excellent plus with two kids. The view was amazing and the beach was never crowded. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting a great vacation on the gulf.
Location, peace and quiet, perfect view. If you don't want to be in the middle of the "crazy", this place is for you. On the busiest beach day there were less than 50 people within eyesight. The condo was well appointed and had everything you could need. Our only "complaint" (not really a complaint and not fixable) was the bedroom was at end of the condo and farthest from the beach. My husband fixed that by pulling the mattresses into the living room and opening the sliding glass door -- instant beach bedroom :) We had a small issue with the A/C line leaking water, but PM was immediately responsive and the issue was fixed right away.
This was a very good condo. Location was amazing. Decor was up to date. Very clean. Friendly building. Everything worked as it was suppose to. Convenient to the beach (obviously); restaurants; and highways. Can't imagine you could get more for your money than this unit. I'd definitely come back; and I'd definitely recommend it to others.
Condo was nice. Had everything we needed. Right on Beach. Elevator was very slow. Usual condo noise from
A BEAUTIFUL VIEW FROM A RESTFUL AND QUIET CONDO.
Unit was very clean, having a washer and dryer in unit is a big plus! Very quiet building, walking distance to coffee shop, salt rocks and muhauffers . Direct beach front balcony, bedroom located in back, some sounds can be heard from hall way but not bad as there is only 4 units per floor. Small bathroom but o.k. Parking spot assigned. Very nice unit to relax in.
This condo has a great location with fantastic views of the gulf. The bedroom is at the back of the unit and is very dark and noisy first thing in the morning. Not an issue for early risers. One of the beds is very uncomfortable with a spring poking up thru the mattress. I would replace the two beds with one king. My wife and I do not like to sleep against the wall so we had to sleep in separate beds. Only one restaurant and coffee shop within walking distance so a car is a must. Kitchen was adequate but could use some new sharp knifes.
Dishwasher did not clean very well
Perfect location. Not so close to busy traffic. Plenty of places to eat/drink nearby. Ocean and beach steps out the back door. Everything we needed for the week at the beach. Only complaint would be the dark bedroom - window is covered understandable with it's close proximity to the outside shared entrance. We had NO issues and would definitely return.
While there are plenty of beaches in the Redington Shores area, there's a lot of cool nature stuff to see and do as well! The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is one of the most popular attractions in the area -- you could spend all day gazing at these beautiful birds! The Town Square Nature Park is a pretty great stop-off, too. It offers a peaceful walking area and bird-watching area. There are plenty of other outdoor activities you can take advantage of though, too, from the white sandy beaches to whale or dolphin watching on a boat. Some popular water activities in the area include parasailing, paragliding, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddleboarding, and fishing. You can rent a boat or charter a boat to go fishing or just sight-seeing. Island Marine Rentals offers a lot of gear for all types of activities. Smuggler Cove Adventure Golf is a great spot for the kids and family too, if you're into mini golf. If the indoors are more your thing, you'll find lots of great restaurants, shops, and bars in the area, including Mahuffer's, which is a popular local beach bar many tourists enjoy stopping off at.
