About Katherine

I am an Air Force Brat and have lived all over the US and well as Norway, Germany and France. I graduated high school in Frankfurt American H.S. After attending U of GA. Vet school I have been a small animal/exotic veterinarian in Clearwater for the last 28 years. Pets and people are my passion. :)

I can't get enough of warm weather and palm trees! My husband and I enjoy fishing the intercoastal on weekends. He runs a boxing gym and I am there 3 nights a week. What a workout!

My goal as a condo owner is to give all of my guests a beautiful home to call their second home in Florida whenever they wish to visit for a relaxing vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Katherine,



Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us for our vacation. Our family had a wonderful vacation. I love the new furniture and decor you have in the condo it really looks great. This is the 3rd year we have stayed at the holiday villas II but it was the first year we have stayed on the that side of the complex and my husband said he likes this side better. We love the Indian shores area it is quiet relaxing and the kids always have a great time it is on the beach but close to everything. Our weather was fantastic too, the best we have had in 3 years. I really hope we can rent your condo again next year.





Thanks so much,



The Holmes Family

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom rental was EXACTLY as described from location (ON the crystalline sands of Indian Shores) to luxurious accommodations (comfortable king in master and 2 doubles in second bedroom, sit-at bar in kitchen, plush livingroom furniture) to amenities (heated pool, bbq grills) to pleasurable, gracious, local owner and onsite management (plumlee realty) that took an active and direct interest in our well being allowing us to check in early and then check out late!! A slight issue wirh tv remote was speedily rectified and I feel comfortable stating that any other issue would have been handled as well. We will be back!

Beach Bums!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay!! Katherine was on top of things and deserves 5 stars for prompt response! The condo was great! If you don't mind not having a Gulf view there is nothing wrong with this condo! Katherine not only stocked the kitchen with everything you need but the condo also had 2 beach chairs and 2 boogie boards!! We took my son, who just returned from Afghanistan.and my other 25 year old son for an early birthday!! They had a blast!!! The condo is centrally located to everything and everyone there is super friendly!

Very run down condo in need of improvements and deep cleaning....

  • 2 of 5

First of all I will start off by saying the Holiday Villas II complex itself was well kept and the Staff was very friendly, professional and helpful HOWEVER this particular condo was very run down and in need of a lot of improvements. Starting with the cons; one of the first things we noticed was paint chipping off several walls, layers upon layers of dust caked onto every fan and a broken nightstand that was attempted to be fixed with scotch tape. The comforters also looked dirty and had several stains and the couch in the living room area had a huge worn spot which was almost torn through. This condo is right beside the elevator which is convenient but lead to a lot of noise at night. We were able to drown most of it out however with a box fan provided in the condo. We took several pictures upon arriving of the condition of the condo of which I wish I could post as they would speak volumes.

Pros: The beds although we removed the dirty comforters were surprisingly very comfortable! The kitchen area was well kept and fully stocked with dishes, pots pans, etc. There also was several beach toys, boogie boards located in the condo as well. The beach was located as described, right behind the complex and was beautiful! The complex was very close to a variety of restaurants. Overall I feel that if this condo was given some TLC and deep cleaning it would be a great place to stay but in the current condition I wouldn't recommend it.

We enjoyed ourselves! Katherine was great to work with! Building was quiet. Beach was beautiful. Lots of beach toys, plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. This owner has stocked the kitchen is stocked beyond belief I've stayed at many vacation rentals with the basics this kitchen lacked 1 thing that I can think of...a cookie sheet. That's it! Everything else was available and of great quality. We had 2 minor issues and both were taken care of immediately. I can't say enough positive things about this unit. Thank you for a great stay we will be back soon! April & family

My husband, my niece and her husband and I rented the condo for 7 days. The condo is centrally located for everything in Indian Shores Beach. Everyone around is so friendly!! We never wanted to leave!! Great restaurants, bars and even mini golf. We rented bikes and rode them on the beach!! The condo is just perfect with a master bedroom with attached bathroom, second bedroom with two queen sized beds and another large bathroom. The living/kitchen area are just right with all the amenities needed. The kitchen has everything just like being at home. Everything was clean and well taken care of. The beach is just fabulous!! Just perfect for a peaceful day in the sun, walks and seeing the sunset!! Chairs, umbrella's and beach toys were right there in the closet on the balcony. No need to go buy anything!! The parking area was so easy to get in and out of. We all had a wonderful time!! We are planning on coming back to this condo every year!! This is a really great condo!!

Clean, Comfortable Condo, Beautiful Beach and property!!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying Katherine (owner) was fantastic to work with. She responded in a timely manner with info on condo, and surrounding areas. Very easy to work with. Thank you Katherine for renting out your place it was easy to call "home" for the week.

The condo unit was very clean, with plenty of room for a family of 4 to spread out and settle in for the week. The kitchen was stocked with all the things we needed for cooking and cleaning. The living room had very comfortable leather furniture which we used to snuggle in, and watch a couple DVD's. The main bathroom nice size tub/shower (enough room for 2 teenagers) plenty of towels and supplies. The 2nd bedroom fit 2 teenagers with 2 double beds and a tv. The master bedroom was spacious enough with a tv. SUPER comfortable king size bed and nice size clean bathroom with shower. The balcony overlooks the street and pool, I enjoyed morning coffee, and we had many meals out there at the table. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach/pool toys to use as well. Washer and dryer on the 1st floor just down the hall very close to this unit.

The property: the parking garage is clean, and the parking spot is located close to the beach, elevator and stairs. The staff at the office were very friendly and helpful at check in and throughout the week with questions about the area and property. The Beach is FANTASTIC. Gorgeous sunsets at night! We were lucky enough a family had set up a volleyball net that we were able to use at the time of our stay, but there is not one there provided by the property. (bummer!) The property has a patio with a charcoal grill to use. The pool is heated and the kids loved that the deep end was 8' deep. The pool area had plenty of chairs and tables and we never had to worry about having a place to sit.

We loved the area, quiet, safe and family orientated. Lots to do in the area, restaurants, shopping, activities, sightseeing etc.

I highly recommend this unit and owner Katherine for a Great Vacation.
