This is what makes a PEACH on the BEACH. Direct Gulf and Top floor.with CLEAR views up and down the entire BEACH. The Gulf of Mexico, is right out in front of you. Upscale & CLEAN, with garage. We have just finished putting in a new tray ceiling in the kitchen and added LED lighting. At the same time we replaced our dining room chandelier and the results are even more light than before and when added to the normal beach front natural light makes for a special feeling of comfort, etc. Also, we have added new micro-fiber furniture in the living room, including a very comfortable chaise lounge. Visitors rave about how comfortable our king sized bed is in the master bedroom. Also, the walk-in closet seems to be greatly appreciated by many of our visitors.

Late Spring and Summer seasons are well under way, and we still do have some of the most popular April/May/June/July/August weeks open. The post Easter season has started and rates are way down from the Spring Break weeks. We do suggest booking ASAP to get your desired Holiday week or weeks.

We are VERY proud of our reviews and how CLEAN are unit is kept. You will be too!!!

Our Beach Palms penthouse condo is located in/on the barrier island town of Indian Shores, FL. with Clearwater Beach to the North and St Pete Beach to the South. This CLEAN and nicely DECORATED condo offers two bedrooms with a king in the master and twins in the second and is located in a five story (top-floor) mid-rise upscale building DIRECTLY on the BEACH with glass elevators, pool(heated), garage and, as you might guess, fantastic views and sunsets.

Beach Palms until recently was known as Beach Cottage III with a reputation for being one of the very best WEEKLY rental buildings in the area. Look up and down the white sandy beach from the living room balcony and listen to the waves. You can almost TOUCH the water. Yes, this is your Florida dream vacation hideaway! The condo is decorator furnished, immaculate, and has a fully-equipped kitchen with a washer/dryer.

About Susan Boettle

Susan and I (Vic) have lived and rented beachfront condos for over 25 years. Susan hails from upstate NY (Cortland) and has lived locally for over 50 years. I grew up and lived in the Chicago/Peoria area coming to Florida 28 years ago. This is when I was lucky enough to have met and married Susan. She graduated from the Univ. of South Florida and I received my degree from Bradley Univ. (Peoria, IL.). Susan is a 30 year retired Pinellas County teacher (K) and very proud of it. Finally, I convinced her to join me in retirement. Enough about us ----- what about you and yours?

Susan Boettle purchased this condo in 2002

Why Susan Boettle chose Indian Shores

Susan has the patience and knowledge to help anyone intending to visit this area. We have put our hearts and souls into making our direct beachfront condo one of the BEST on the beach. Add to that the direct, top floor location and you have a winner for your holiday. Worried about you car? Then you will love our garage. How many condos offer you a garage? Best of all, however; is the unobstructed view from the private balcony, out to the Gulf. Please, take a look at our pictures and you will also see the exact Gulf views of the entire beach. Each year we put back into the unit. In 2014 we put in a new tray kitchen ceiling with LED lighting and a new chandelier in the dinning room. Last year it was new micro-fiber living room furniture, including a chaise lounge, and the year before that we added free WiFi and HD TV in the living with free long distance telephone service, including calls to Canada. And the year before that we put in new tile in the entry hallways, kitchen and both bathrooms. The list goes on and on, but we hope you get the idea? This place is kept up to very high standards which we hope our visitors will enjoy each and every up-grade.

What makes this condo unique

If you plan to visit the area, you need someone you can trust. That just discribed us. Tired of dealing with fast talking, rude, only interested in getting your booking people? That is NOT us. We like the old fashioned telephone, so that we can describe everything in full and to your complete satisfaction. We have been as honest as we possibly can with our pictures. We see pictures on the internet that are taken at the best possible angles, that represent views that the complex offers, that make no sence what-so-ever. We just shake our heads and feel sorry for the folks who get fooled' by such half truths. This is one reason we meet and greet our visitors in person. We view the grounds together and walk into the unit with you. Someone not happy? This has yet to happen. If it were to happen, we would talk about it 'on the spot' and work it out. Finally, since we meet and greet all of our visitors, we provide the keys, so you do not need to drive up and down the beach (or fool with a lock box) to get keys. No doubt, flying or driving you will be tired and who needs to look for the whereabouts of the keys?

Finally, since we have built two way 'faith and trust' with you on the telephone, so we have NO need to ask you to pay in advance. Payment is upon arrival. Many operations (most, if not all) ask you to pay in advance. Doesn't that make you a bit uncomfortable? It does when we travel. We do ask for a reservation deposit when you book your reservation This assures us that you are indeed coming and makes us feel better about turning others away for the dates you have reserved. We await your phone call and look forward to it. Evenings are best for us and we be reached at 727-595-5727.

What a nice EM. Thank you! We can only hope that our "paths" cross again. If any of your friends are in need of a place, kindly, let us know, so that we can "roll-out" the red carpet for them, too.

You are GREAT people and we only wish we had MORE like you. Hope you enjoy those Stein Mart "goodies" and that the golf game stays up to "par".

Best Regards, Vic & Susan


Hi Vic & Susan! Thanks so much for the prompt return of our security deposit.

We enjoyed our Beach Cottages stay as well as could be expected under the difficult personal circumstances. The condo was beautiful and we enjoyed keeping it that way. We felt as if it was our own home. We'd love to come again, if our travels to Florida take us to the Gulf Coast. We'll certainly recommend our places to friends and family, should the opportunity arise. Again it was a pleasure to meet you both, and thank you for all your help during our stay.

Beautiful Condo and View of the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

As many of the other reviews have said, this condo was extremely clean and very nicely decorated. The owners have it well stocked with everything you would need. The view from the master bedroom and the balcony was absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony and drinking my coffee each morning. (Even the balcony is pretty.) I liked that it had a separate door that went out on the balcony from the bedroom. My sons and I enjoyed our walks on the beach, riding rental bikes on the beach, and going out to eat at local restaurants. We enjoyed also going to John's Pass (restaurants and shops), which is several miles away. Susan, one of the owners was very friendly and contacted me several times before the trip. They met us at the condo when we arrived. She even had a cute little gift for me. The owners are very detailed in their instructions of the care of the condo and want to keep everything nice for each guest who comes to stay with them. We hope to be back again!

Owner's Response: We want to thank you and your sons for being so "nice" to our condo during your recent visit. You "got it" CLEAN and, you certainly left it CLEAN and that deserves a another BIG thank-you. Yes, we certainly do hope and yours come and stay with us again (and again).

Relaxing week on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great introduction to VRBO! Vic and Susan contacted us after our plane landed and met us at the condo. Everything one could possibily need was available. The photos are true representations of the furnishings--impeccably decorated and immaculately clean. WIFI was excellent. The Gulf view alone was worth the price of admission! The area is a great vacation spot for relaxation,for activities or sightseeing, and for dining out. We are

looking forward to our next stay.

C.C.C. = Cleanest Condo on the Coast

  • 5 of 5

Spent Thanksgiving week at the condo. And a big Thanks to Susan and Vic. The condo was immaculate, from the new living room furniture to the comfortable bed. It even has a garage to park your car. Great WiFi and HD TV. Sue did a wonderful job with the decor. The place was spotless. Located in a quiet section, close to many great restaurants. We loved the food at Villa Gallace, a short drive up the coast. Although we never had a chance to use the heated pool, the area looked clean and well maintained. And the #1 feature is the view. The sunset was spectacular, an unobstructed view over the white sandy beach from the balcony on the 5th, (top) floor, enjoying a good glass of wine. It doesn't get any better than that.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the timely review and the heartfelt comments. We have met many fine people over the years and you two are among the very best. We would be remiss, if we did not really thank you for the way you left the unit. We certainly do hope that you will consider staying with us again.

Love the view and sound of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Florida staying at the condo. It is a home away from home with all the amenities as described in the listing. The condo is in a quiet area and within an hour traveling north or south we enjoyed some beautiful parks on this trip. During our stay the washer broke and with a call to Susan to explain what it was NOT doing, they contacted a repairman and had it fixed the very next day. Beware wives, if your husband is like mine, it was hard to get him off the new chaise... in the livingroom! Thanks Susan and Vic for another enjoyable week on the coast!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review. We hope you folks will always think of our condo as the "peach on the Beach" Sorry, about the washing machine, but as we all know, those things do happen. Our appliance "guy" has been with us for over 20 years and he says to continue to repair your present machines, because the new ones that they are making are NOT very good. Plastic gears instead of metal, etc. .We have done that because our appliance "guy" is really good and very dependable. We really enjoyed having you and look forward to your next visit.

Owner's Response: Paradise and wonderful people is very kind of you. Frankly, you folks are the wonderful people and thank you for coming back again and again. We now have added a tray ceiling and LED lighting in the kitchen and a new fixture in the dinning room and with all of the new lighting "paradise" will be even better. Hope to see you (again) next year. V&S

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

In looking for a place on the beach, close to amenities, yet not in the middle of heavy tourist areas - we found this condo. IT WAS PERFECT! The condo was clean and comfortable, with plenty of space. Kitchen had everything we could possible need; washer/dryer in unit was such a blessing. (Gas/charcoal grills outside too!) 2nd bedroom with 2 twin beds was great for our kids. The view was amazing and eating breakfast every morning on our patio was so relaxing. The location of this condo is great - the beach was not crowded at all, but yet if we wanted the "touristy" aspect, it was a quick drive up to Clearwater Beach. My kids loved being able to go from the beach to the pool (outdoor shower provided in between) Garage had toys, chairs and a canopy for the beach! Thank you so much for a wonderful place to stay!

Owner's Response: Such a nice review. Thank you, so very much. You say "it was perfect" and it had to be for such a perfectly GREAT family. As proud owners, it gives us GREAT joy when a family such as yours has a good time and enjoys the "Peach on the Beach". Thanks again and we do, indeed, hope to hear from you again in the future, as you advised.
