SPECTACULAR OCEANFRONT CONDO WITH SWEEPING VIEWS! ON THE GULF

Indian Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms (plus queen futon), 2 Baths

This lovely 2-bedroom/2-bathroom OCEAN FRONT condominium is a corner unit located in 'The Pointe' oceanfront property on Indian Shores Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Indian Shores is a charming and relaxed gulf coast community just 18 miles west of Tampa in the middle of an island with Clearwater to the north and St. Petersburg Beach to the south.

The condo is located directly on Indian Shores / Indian Rocks Beach and is across the street from The Salt Rock Bar and Grill (one of the best restaurants in the area)... The complex is called The Pointe because we sit out the farthest of any complex on the sand making us the closest to the water. Being a corner unit with nothing infront of or beside us gives this unit one of the most panoramic views possible. This corner unit comes fully furnished with all stainless steel appliances, granite counters, maple cabinets, custom bathrooms with full tile, Berber carpet, electric window shades, custom furniture, furnished private balcony bbq etc.

Our Florida gulf coast condo in Indian Shores features a 3rd floor, private corner balcony with patio furniture and has a beautiful view that looks all the way out and all the way down the gulf on both sides! A reserved parking space in our under-the-building parking garage protects your vehicle from heating up in the hot Florida sun.

For your entertainment, there is 40' HIGH DEFINITION LCD FLAT SCREEN Cable TV with several premium and on demand movie channels all included, a VCR, DVD/Blu-Ray player and stereo in the living room. We even include a DVD library with over 50 top box office titles. Our Florida gulf coast family condo has a beautiful, modern, full-size kitchen that includes all stainless steel appliances and includes a large refrigerator with ice maker, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, coffeemaker, cookware, bake ware, glasses and utensils. The kitchen even comes complete with a high end KEURIG coffee brewer. We even provide a carousel stocked with a variety of gourmet coffee to get you started so your first morning is as bright as can be.

The master bedroom has a QUEEN-size bed and private full bath and the windows even feature remote controlled electric shades with a light blocking feature to let you sleep away the day if you like! The second bedroom has a QUEEN-size bed and separate full bath.

Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay is only 45 minutes and Orlando Theme Parks (Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, MGM, Epcott Center) are about 90 minutes. Surrounded by warm, gentle surf and plenty to do, or do nothing but relax and walk barefoot on the beautiful, white sandy beach right outside your door.

Easy access to all central Florida and gulf coast world-famous attractions, including Disney, Orlando theme parks, Universal Studios, MGM, Wet and Wild Water Park, Epcot Center. Our luxury gulf coast Florida vacation condo is only 45 minutes from Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay. Walk to mini-market, great restaurants, shops and entertainment. Enjoy beachside volleyball, swimming in the warm Florida gulf coast waters, sunning, snorkeling, shelling, sand castles, fishing, boogie boarding, parasailing, miniature golf, public golf courses and glorious sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We have been coming here every summer for the past 8 years. This property has by far the best view available in the entire area and the owner is great to deal with. The property is quiet, very clean and well decorated. We will certainly be back next year and can't wait to stay here again.

I have always been a water person for recreation and loved owning and fixing up real estate professionally.

Lyle Bentley purchased this condo in 2003

I have always love the beach and the water. When I started looking to buy a place I found this property early on but kept looking. NOTHING else I saw had a view that was even close. Most had a building next to you or in front of you and just didn't have the same sweeping views. It was one of a kind.

I remodeled the condo as owner occupied while I was spending a couple weeks a month in Florida for work. Now that my work has ended I get to share it with all the great folks on VRBO. ENJOY!

"THE" PLACE TO STAY

"THE" place to stay
  • 5 of 5
I never write reviews or do surveys, however this is "THE" place to stay if you are going to visit Indian Shores. This condo is so cozy and comfortable..... home away form home. We were the lucky dogs to enjoy the new carpet and fresh paint job!!! The beach was NOT crowded at all (this was during Memorial weekend). Lyle picked one of the best locations. Friends we haven't seen in a long time came to stay with us a few days. We all had so much fun hanging out and catching up. Lyle is great to talk to and does every thing he can to make sure you have a great time. We will be back for sure!!

LOVELY VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from Indian Shores where we spent 5 days at the condo. We had our two little chichauquas with us which made the days at the shore like being home. The apartment was lovely with new carpet, plenty of beach toys and a modern stylish layout. Koodos to the owners for trying hard to keep up a seaside property.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful two months the time went too fast. The Condo is as beautiful as the photos show. Everything we needed was there the only time we used our car was to arrive and go grocery shopping. The view and the sunsets are Awesom. Long walks down the beach and watching the dolphins swim by in the A.M and evenings was a special treat. Many things to see and great places to eat out. We hope to return next year !!!!!!

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience at this condo. The owner was easy to work with and he was quick to respond to questions. The condo was very nice, clean and comfortable. The view was absolutely gorgeous and we spent a lot of time on the balcony enjoying that view and the sounds of the waves. I would definitely stay here again. The only problem we had was the weather, it rained a few days but we made some day trips to Tarpon Springs and Sarasota. All in all, a great week.

DEANNA AND DAVE

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting this condo.I have to say it was the best decision we could have made! The condo was extremely clean and well cared for.The amenities are a wonderful addition to an already great location.The parking was nice-didn't have to park out in the hot sun. The master bedroom bed was really comfortable with the pillow top mattress. The kitchen has high end appliances and anything you need. The views from the balcony are breathtaking!! The owner was always extremely helpful and got back to us right a way with answers to any of our questions. I would definitely recommend this condo to friends,family or anyone looking for an amazing beach getaway! While in the area I would definitely recommend going to the Salt Rock Grill. There are many restaurants and fun things to see and do or you can just enjoy spending time on the beautiful white sandy beach-right outside your door! Thank you for a wonderful time and we hope to stay there again soon.
