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.

The post Summer 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.

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.

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.

Sure thing, and thanks again! Diane & John

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.

Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else!

We love the view! Clean. Quiet. Great proximity to restaurants and shopping. Wonderful walks on the beach. Love to sit on the balcony enjoying the waves and ocean breeze.

Looking forward to our next visit this October.

Owner's Response: YES, the PEACH ON THE BEACH view is truly super. We looked long and hard before we purchased this beachfront unit. Many rental condo units advertise "beachfront" and when folks arrive they find out that the complex is beachfront, but their unit is not. Our unit is not only directly facing the Gulf, but also on the top floor of the five story building. We top all of this off, by being as fair as we can, when it comes to the always important rate levels. Suggest you give Susan a call and she will send you to the time of the year when you will "love" (if possible) the rate level. If your weekly dates are "fixed" she will do what she can. If you are a party of two you have a very good chance at a rate lower than what we show on our Home Away rate page. We truly suggest you give Susan a call. It is always better to rent directly from an owner, such as us. We look forward to your next visit.

Superb look no further

Fantastic Gulf View and Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

In February we spent our 4th year enjoying the beautiful Gulf view from the 5th (top) floor of Peach On Beach. We loved the balcony each morning drinking our coffee and the sunsets were spectacular enjoying a glass of wine. We can't say enough about Susan and Vic. They are by far the most friendly and personable owners. They offer suggestions for activities, dinning and of course shopping, along with special little personal touches. The condo is immaculate and has everything you'd need available for you. They truly make your stay your home away. We can't wait to go back again sometime.

Owner's Response: What a nice review and, of course, it figures because the two of you are so nice. People come and go but you two will always be at the "TOP" of our nice list. Yes, that direct westward view of the Gulf of Mexico, is truly special, again like you two. Have a great year and we look forward to your 5th visit next year. Vic & Susan

Super Clean Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo is one of the cleanest I have ever stayed in! My family and I spent our Spring Break there this year and totally fell in love with the beaches, community, and nice people. Susan and Vic (the owners) were so kind to help us make the most of our visit by telling us some of the best restaurants and attractions. We usually stay in the Destin area, but our kids wanted to visit Winter and Hope and the Clearwater Marine Hospital this year. This part of Florida is unsurpassed in beauty! I am very picky about where we stay because I like a clean condo. I chose this unit because of the reviews that emphasized the cleanliness. We really appreciated Susan and Vic's diligence in keeping their place neat and well-kept! The views from the balcony were gorgeous and the unit is centrally located to Clearwater, Tampa, and St. Pete. We will definitely return to this area again, and when we do, my number one choice is to stay here again!!!

Thank you, Susan and Vic, for your welcoming hospitality!

Owner's Response: Keeping a weekly beachfront condo clean and proper is very difficult work. Therefore when we get a review like yours, we are most appreciative. Thank you so very much. Frankly we have had many fine and wonderful weekly visitors, but you and your family are now at the top of the list and we certainly do hope that you and yours will visit us again.

Home away from home.

This was a very clean, roomy, and quiet condo. The owner is very nice and helpful. The condo is stocked with everything you may need. The view is beautiful and the sunsets were awesome. My husband and I loved to set on our balcony with our morning coffee. We love walking the beach, it was clean and easy to walk on. Many things to do in the area. Great local restaurants. We hope to go back soon.
