About Vic 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?

Vic Boettle purchased this condo in 2002

Why Vic 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. Last year it was new living room furniture 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.

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 tried 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.

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.

Clean, well maintained top floor gulf front condo

  • 3 of 5
This condo is just like the pictures posted on the web. It has all the amenities, lots of towels and pillows, however, off white carpet in the living room and bedrooms? Really. Made us feel so uncomfortable for fear of staining carpets. The toilet area off the master bedroom needs a Real door, not a Saloon door which provided no privacy. Second bedroom beds need new comfortable mattresses. We loved the top floor and the direct ocean view and the condo complex and beach area are very well maintained. The garage had lots of beach toys and chairs, however, some of the chairs were so rusted and broken and need to be replaced. We had a lovely vacation especially enjoying the many wonderful restaurants and visiting with family and friends.

Review by Local Registered Nurse

  • 5 of 5
Clean, Bright and inviting!!! A very comfortable, relaxing, updated and well furnished condo. As a routine visitor to the Indian Rocks / Indian Shores area. This condo was the cleanest I've seen in years. I would recommend it to anyone who is a cleanliness affection-ado like I am. The gulf front views are lovely and the garage area came with your own private access, closed garage door, equipped with beach gear!!!!

Nothing sticky, grimy or smelly here, just a joyful place to enjoy a quiet stay at the beach. I thank the owners Susan and Victor for their concern in making their beach get-away such a wonderful vacation spot. Their attention to detail is amazing. Plenty of towels and a washer and dryer! The king size bed was quite comfortable and my husband had no complaints with his bad back sleeping on this bed! Wow! The kitchen is updated with modern appliances and dishwasher. The Pool area was equipped with plenty of lounge chairs and two gas grills. The Beach area had private rental beach lounge chairs (2)with umbrella $125 for the week or less depending on the # of days required. Absolutely a great vacation! No DVD player however, but there is Wifi for your personal computer or i-pad.

Clean, great location, friendly owners

  • 5 of 5
This condo is FANTABULOUS! It is on the top floor and has a spectacular view. You can see down the beach for miles in both directions. You can catch some very stunning sunsets on the balcony.

The owners are very easy to work with and are very helpful. They keep the place extremely clean. They provide almost everything that you would need like dishes and towels and even a little sewing kit. The garage is loaded with stuff for the beach like chairs, a canopy, a cooler, floaties and lots of other beach goodies. They have a book full of information about restaurants, groceries stores and things to do in the area. It's loaded with lots of helpful info.
The complex is very well kept. The pool and the beach were never too crowded. We always found room at the beach and chairs at the pool.

The location is perfect. You not only have a beach right outside but many restaurants within walking distance. Go North and you get to Clearwater Beach and Go South and you get to St Pete's. The location is literally in the middle of everything. So many fun things to do and yummy places to eat in both directions and won't take you long to get there either.

I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family. I already want to come back!

Single Mom with Teenagers

  • 5 of 5
This condo was the perfect location for a newly single mom to vacation with two teenage kids. I was able to sit on the balcony and watch the children frolic on the beach and felt very secure in the complex. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. There were so many little extras to make it feel like home away from home. We made lots of wonderful memories during our stay. I definitely plan to return

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. Yes, the ability to sit on the top floor balcony and watch your kids up and down the beach is a real "plus". Many rental condos say the are "on the beach" and when you arrive, you find out they meant the complex and your unit is out by the street or on the side where the beach view is very limited. So, our unit is for folks, like you, and all the other folks who want to be "right out there". Finally, yes, we too, look forward to your return visit. That makes for the very best review possible.

Wonderful Gulf Front Condo!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from our wonderful beach vacation! My husband and our three kids had a great time! I especially appreciated the cleanliness of the condo as well as the well equipped kitchen. We had beautiful weather for the week and enjoyed getting close to a dolphin on the sandbar during the afternoons! We really loved having the wagon in the garage to cart all of our beach stuff each day! We've stayed at Beach Palms before, but this condo is by far the best! My husband and I especially loved walking the beach to the Indian Shores Coffee house each morning. Their muffins are excellent! Chris, who rents the cabanas, allowed us to just rent an umbrella for the week. It was great having it set up and ready to go in our spot each morning. I have to say, the beds were extremely comfortable and I slept like a baby all week long! The condo is super quiet and you don't hear your neighbors at all. We had a great time and are already looking forward to returning next summer. This condo is a great place to stay in an excellent location. We did all of the "Clearwater" fun things and enjoyed The Pub, Candy Kitchen, John's Pass, Shell Key, and even caught Barracudas while deep see fishing! You can't go wrong with this condo! We look forward to returning in the future to create more great family memories!
