About Sean Donoghue

My wife is from California and I am from Michigan. We met on a random road down the Pacific Coast Highway and the rest they say is history. We live in Tampa (just a short drive away) and are the proud parents of Finn who keeps us pretty busy.

Sean Donoghue purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sean Donoghue chose Indian Shores

My wife and I have always felt connected to the water and after Finn was born we found ourselves the beach constantly. I had been coming to Indian Shores since I moved down in 1998 and fell in love with the laid back family atmosphere it had to offer. So after searching for nearly two years...we found Sunplace. We fell in love instantly and knew this is where we wanted to make our family memories together. Since our schedules never let us use it as much as we like...we wanted to share it with let our guests get a better understanding of why we think this is one of the best places on earth! Enjoy!

What makes this condo unique

A large majority of the gulf front condos are cookie cutter - two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a small balcony located in a huge building. We wanted to buy a property that had character and was welcoming to our family and friends. We believe this property is one of the most unique on the beach - offering a tremendous amount of privacy with all the modern conveniences. But don't take our word for it...come see for yourself!

Eclectic Townhome

  • 5 of 5

Sol Mate is a funky layed out townhome but comfortable and right on the Gulf! Smart TVs, kitchen is well stocked, a hot tub we used during the day without jets as a pool more or less to cool off, the many decks to enjoy the views and sounds of the beach, the decor is updated and Master bed was super comfy! We never sleep well when we travel but we did here! They have a brand new washer and dryer, plenty of towels and beach towels, and seating. My only suggestion is to have brighter lighting in the bathrooms, update the showers, but other than that? Awesome place!! The owner was very helpful and quick to respond to our request to check out an hour later if at all possible. Our flight was later afternoon so he was able just this time, to allow us to check out at 11. Big help! I recommend this funky townhouse to a family of say 6.

Fabulous Sunset Views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Indian Shores. We had a wonderful week in Sol-mate! The first thing you notice is the amazing view of the gulf, and we enjoyed the multiple decks each night for the sunsets. The property is nicely furnished and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. It was nice having beach towels provided, and we especially appreciated the storage closet with the beach chairs, umbrellas, and convenient! The location of the property is ideal for a quiet laid back vacation with easy access to many local eateries and shops. We loved Indian Shores Coffee! We look forward to returning and would definitely recommend this rental to family and friends.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have returned 3 years in a row. We love this property. And the hosts are nice people. It is in a great location, with beautiful beach frontage and the space is very comfortable and quiet. Beautiful sunsets and dolphins at the front door. We love the rooftop hot tub at night.

We spend most of our time on the beach during the day...walking and reading. We like to cook and there is a Publix not to far away which is convenient. Our son lives in Tampa so he joined us for a few days which was great fun. And later in the week, we ventured into Tampa to visit the new James Western and Wildlife Museum and had a street side lunch! Another Great vacation.

Nice find in Indian Shores

  • 4 of 5

Rented Solmate in April 2018 for my family of 4 and my in-laws. Located at the southern end of Indian Shores. The condo is tastefully decorated and feels very comfortable from the start. Sofa sleeper in the living room. Good selection of entertainment options with nice sized TV, Apple TV, Sonos, etc. Enjoyed dining inside the condo or out on the porch. Mattress in the Master bedroom was softer than I prefer, but comfortable and slept well. Kitchen and bathrooms are adequate, but need updating. Newer hot tub on the top floor was in great shape, but not used on this trip. Covered, assigned parking, but based on the occupancy of the other condos, might get tight during high season. Located on a great spot on the beach, large tide pool at low tide for young children to play in. 4+ beach chairs and 2+ umbrellas to use at the beach.

All in all, a very comfortable place to stay and will definitely keep on my short list for future trips.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed right on the beach. This place was exactly what we thought of when we thought of staying on the beach. With three bedrooms, three balconies, two floors, right on the beach it had a lot of room and the weather was perfect. We would come again.
