As far as my kid being without other kids...i am not concerned, he will go to school and meet friends there and i am sure there are parks that i can take him to so he can play with other kids. I live in a building now that has few kids and he's just fine.

Problem with "on the beach" is its been bought up by developers and mostly turned into giant concrete bunkers, there are some communities with actual houses on the beach but they are really expensive and insurance would be really high.
To give an idea as to what much of the coast looks like heres a pic i took going north on Gulf Blvd just south of Clearwater.On the other side of those highrises to the left is the Gulf..Much of the coast looks like this..

She has already stated in either this thread or one of the other 5 she started that she doesn't care about cost or insurance because they are from an affluent beach neighborhood in New York and what we pay down here is nothing in comparison.
That being said, I LOVE your little bug sleeping on your dashboard

We defenitly dont care about the cost. We have a lot in New York, much more than you guys pay in Florida. I dont see anything wrong with that picture? Whats wrong with those big giant high rises?

I was thinking not such a great place to bring up kids, but thats just me ,if you like that kind of dwelling there is much to choose from.
If money isnt that much of a problem then Indian Rocks has many beach side houses although i dont know if many are for sale, bit crowded for my taste.

I guess if they are going to rent, that will give them the opportunity to see how wrong their assumptions are, and then adjust to the proper living place. I'm done with this, I dont see anything constructive coming of my involvement anymore. The OP has already made up her mind, obviously did so before creating her 3 identical threads too. Good luck...

The OP is getting POOR advice. There are Plenty of Single Family Homes DIRECTLY on the beach in Pinellas. There are Schools, Parks, and Children LIVING ON THE BEACH!

OP originally stated they wanted a CONDO was not clear on buying or renting.

OP originally stated they wanted a KID FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT where the kid(s) could play with other kids.



It now appears the OP wants to RENT a CONDO not BUY nor do they want to BUY or RENT a Single Family Home.

It also appears that the OP is fine with driving to a park to let her kids play.


If this is the case (wants keep changing) than OP has PLENTY of places to pick from.
