About Liz Barrett

I grew up in Dunedin, FL a small waterfront town about 8 miles north of where I live now in Indian Shores. I left the Sunshine State briefly to go to college at VA TECH! Go Hokies!

A beach girl at heart, I always dreamed of having a beach house. Now I have 5 beach bungalows. I live on the property in one and rent out the others. I have 3 sweet shelters dogs that live with me and work full time entertaining guests and their dogs/children. I sell real estate full time as well. I began my real estate career with Century 21 in 1994 then I started LIZARD REALTY in 2005. My main motto in life is 'GOLDEN RULE: do unto others'. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to have this beautiful property and help people with their real estate needs. If you would like to buy some property while you are here I'm happy to help! In addition I have Property Management company - we handle vacation rentals and annual rentals so we can rent out your property when you are not using it. Looking forward to hearing from you!!!

Liz Barrett purchased this house in 2002

Why Liz Barrett chose Indian Shores

I spent many days on the beaches of Pinellas County as a child. Indian Shores is much more quiet, less commercialized area of the beaches.....reminds me of my childhood days at the beach!

What makes this house unique

The feeling I get here is that the property is like a charming tropical oasis! Its very laid back with beautiful tropical landscaping! People often says it reminds them of they way FLA was way back when there were just little cottages up and down the Coast.

My mother and I stayed in the Lobster Shack for one glorious week in October. The bungalow was adorable, and had everything we needed to enjoy our little stretch of nearly empty beach and the Gulfside pool! Liz, the C-21 staff and other guests were wonderful! Indian Shores is a fantastic, laid-back, quiet little piece of heaven! I've never spent more than two days in Florida without rain...and we had 7 in a row! We even inadvertently timed our visit with the opening of Stone Crab season; make sure to get yours at Crabby Bill's, just up the road! What a perfect vacation! We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Get-away

  • 4 of 5

We had such a peaceful time at the bungalow. The whole family didn't want to leave. Especially enjoyed the view and the volleyball. The area is full of great places to eat but we loved our trip to the donut shop daily! Looking forward to being able to come back again!

Nice location, but....

  • 3 of 5

Stayed at the Marlin, a beachfront cottage with a private deck overlooking the beautiful beach. Our first evening was punctuated by a loud acoustic session performed at the adjoining pool also a part of the property. The performance continued on well after the property's pool curfew. The cottage was clean, not immaculate. My husband checked the airconditioning filters which were filthy. The linens old and shabby. The living room screen door was ripped wide open from the bottom left corner. The master bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. We experienced a swarm of termites inside the house one evening, and there was also rodent feces on kitchen counter one morning. I sent an email to the management staff regarding pest control issues, and never heard a peep back from them.

The location is great. The beach is beautiful. Just wasn't impressed with the management of the property.

Owner's Response: The property has been tented since the stay of this complaint and is also with a different pest control company. Noise nuisances caused by other guests is always addressed when brought to our attention and compliance with pool hours is reinforced. The owner/property manager actually lives on the property and is available 7 days per week to attend to guests needs. It is quite possible that this guest simply called the wrong number.

This is an absolute FABULOUS rental. It exceeded our expectations. The pool was wonderful, the ocean so close and the house had all the comforts of home. Our family had such a wonderful time. Walking distance to great food.

Thank you.

Loved It!

We stayed here in August 2006, sorry for the late review!

It was very clean and family friendly. There were 8 of us, 4 adults and 4 children and we actually had enough room. The pool is very nice, the Beach is Awesome!

Thanks for the memories!

We spent a perfect Thanksgiving Holiday. We had the family dog with us and he could not have been happier. I could have spent every second lounging in that hammock if only there was more time in a day. We will be back but this time w/o the dog so I can get a bit more vacation down time on the hammock by the pool watching the sunsets. A perfect slice of paradise.
