Overview

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.

About Lyle Bentley

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

Why Lyle Bentley chose Indian Shores

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.

What makes this condo unique

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!

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.

Awesome Condo & Great Views!

Awesome Condo & Great Views!
  • 5 of 5
Lyle's condo is a perfect place for a vacation getaway. It is centrally located for driving to Clearwater to the north & John's Pass to the south. We tried several restaurants & our favorites were the Salt Rock Grill (get there for the early bird dinner!), Crabby Bill's (a great fried mixed platter) & JD's. We had dinner and breakfast at JD's ($4 breakfast specials Tuesday through Friday). The view from the balcony is wonderful & the grown-up "high-chairs" were perfect, since you don't have to look through the balcony bars! There's a blue heron to the south that stands all day with the fishermen, just waiting for a treat...so fun to watch! You can't go wrong here!!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful vacation spot. Since this condo is an end unit, you have not only a direct ocean front view but also a side view from the balcony and more windows from the bedrooms. Both bedrooms were large with comfortable beds. Had a little trouble with the TV in the master bedroom but Lyle responded in super-fast speed and gave me instructions to get it working within a few minutes. Speaking of Lyle...he is so efficient to respond back to any questions I had prior to arrival. There are plenty of beach toys, etc. located in the master bedroom closet. Wonderful unit and plan to stay here again in the near future. JD's is wonderful for breakfast and the Salt Rock Grill is excellent for dinner. Great central location to Clearwater and St. Petersburg. Loved the John's Pass area for shopping and dinner.

Fun times

This was our first time using vrbo. Lyle made this vacation very easy. He was always in contact with us if we had any questions. The condo was very nice,just as described, if not better. Great central location,short drives up and down coast for dining. Since we flew into PIE,The beach chairs and umbrellas in the room, were an added bonus for us. We really enjoyed watching the dolphins from the balcony!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
So enjoyed our accommodations . Everything was perfect. The condo was spacious and had everything we needed. The location provided easy access to dining and grocery shopping. The view was worth a million. Sitting on the balcony for breakfast was what I loved the most and the sunsets were amazing. I hope I get to come back. Indian shores is a little bit of new and old and that's what I liked!

Best of the best!

  • 5 of 5
Great choice! Best location in Florida. We have been in several vacation rentals, we even live in Miami, FL; but this beach has no comparison. Situated on a great stretch of the beach... Not crowded at all! Condo was very clean, with just about everything you could possibly need. Immediately felt right at home. The balcony is a good sized with comfortable furniture. Best spot to watch the daily spectacular sunset, or just sit and listen to the relaxing sounds of the waves rolling in. The parking spot is right in front of the building and very close to the door to the secured lobby. Lyle was extremely prompt in answering our inquiries. Getting the condo reserved and the arrival process were simple. Let me remark that you are not one step from a wonderful beach, you ARE IN THE BEACH! where you can enjoy long walks in the sand, lounging in the sun, playing in the gulf waters, we even had dolphins visiting (This was an unforgettable experience) Everything you need is nearby including restaurants and grocery stores, but really... you only need to get your groceries and you will be set for a wonderful, relaxing time. I went with my daughter an 2 of her friends ...everybody had a great time. We will definitely plan to stay in this condo again. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very nice home away from home on a beautiful beach for the perfect vacation with the guide and support of very diligent owner. Thanks Lyle!

Beach Lover

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just spent two wonderful weeks at the Sea Star! The location of this condo is absolutely perfect, you are right on the beach and have easy access to restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. The view from the balcony is amazing! We enjoyed watching the waves (and sometimes dolphins) while eating our breakfast there and loved watching the sunset at night. The interior of the condo is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. It truly felt like a home away from home. And Lyle, the owner of the condo, has been so helpful and accommodating. He was very understanding, answered all of our questions, and responded to our emails quickly. I highly recommend the Sea Star to anyone looking to relax, have fun, and enjoy the best of Indian Shores beach.
