About Tom Krueger

Owners Tom & Jan, enjoy coming to their unit at Beach Cottages several times a years. It a home away from home.

Tom Krueger purchased this condo in 2007

Why Tom Krueger chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

On this same property there used to be a motel called the 'Gulf Lane', which my family started coming to in the mid 1960's. We've been to other areas in Florida, but when we decided to purchase a condo for ourselves, we wanted to be in an area that had plenty of things to do. Not only for us but for our children and grandchildren. We love the area and it proximity to major attractions. Orlando is less than 2 hours away.

What makes this condo unique

We like to think that we are a cut above the competition and worth the extra. We supply toilet paper, trash bags, paper towel, dish soap, laundry supplies, hair dryer, beach towels, toaster, full set of pots & pans, mixer, bicycles, etc. This is our second home and we have it decorated and stocked it for ourselves, not the bare minimum for tenants as many places do.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at the Beach Cottages. The Krueger's have thought of everything to make this the perfect vacation condo. We stayed during one of the busiest times of the season (high school spring break), but the condo's location (top corner unit) made for a noiseless, peaceful vacation. We enjoyed morning coffee on the bedroom balcony and meals on the kitchen balcony. We were concerned about the condo's top floor location, but we never had to wait for the elevator and only had to share the elevator on a couple occasions all week. It was like having our own elevator to paradise. We also appreciated the parking spot right next to the elevator. We used the top notch grills a couple times during the week and the kids enjoyed the warm pool. The beach is beautiful and not crowded. We have been to Florida many times, but this is the first time staying in the Indian Shores area. This is a quiet area of Florida with a lot of nice restaurants and shops.

Mr & Mrs. Krueger thank you for making this one of our favorite family vacations!

Great stay on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year staying at the Beach Cottages and renting this unit, although we have rented at other locations/units over the last 7 years along the Gulf Coast. We would rate this as probably the best renting experience. Very convenient before/during/after our stay. The owners and cleaning staff are very friendly and so easy to work with. This unit was very clean and nicely decorated. The view and outdoor balcony space was fantastic. Very convenient parking, accessibility and security to beach areas. Of any units we have rented, this unit by far included the most in terms of extra conveniences (cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, etc - all the basics we needed, THANK YOU!) Beach Cottages is located in a great area with a lot of nearby restaurants and close to many area attractions within/around Tampa. We have two children ages 8 & 11 years old and they had a great time having both access to the beach and pool.

We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend this at the top of our list of renting experiences!

Perfect Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year with one of Tom's condos and we could not have been more satisfied.Very clean with all the extras you could ever want, it had the ambiance of being on vacation and at home at the same time. We watched dolphins in the Inter Costal Waterway from one of the balconies then enjoyed the view of the Gulf from another. 25 minute drive to Spring Training games and great restaurants just a few minutes away. Lots to do but also great to just sit and relax or walk the beach. Pat, who was our on site contact was excellent to deal with. Family with teenagers.
