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.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Beach Cottage II units for over 20 years and this is the best one I've seen. It seemed to be furnished as a home and not as a rental - nice silverware, nice towels, updated appliances and furniture. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. In fact, we've already booked this owner's other Beach Cottage condo for 2018!!

Beautiful Condo!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It's beautiful and so incredibly stocked like no other place we've stayed. The owner sent an incredibly thorough in sending us info on the condo and area sites and places to go. Furniture is comfy and the kitchen is awesome. Bathrooms are really nice and updated too.

We had a few hiccups - 1. Air conditioning unit stopped working and while we do NOT blame the owner for this we wished he would have been a bit more concerned and speedy at getting someone out to fix it. We had a rough night of very high humidity (90%) that was not comfortable especially with no window that opens in the 2nd bedroom. 2. The wi-fi was not great and had to use our data in certain rooms like the master bedroom. 3. We had to ask for our deposit back and had to wait until the owner was back from his vacation.

Not sure if we'd rent again but will for sure be back to the area. It's a great location. Parking spot right by the elevator and the pool is heated and usually pretty empty. Loved the 3 different balconies too. Really nice town and gulf boulevard is a great street with tons and tons to do.

Owner's Response: Yes, they did ask for their deposit (prior to us getting the keys back), but the deposit was sent out immediately after the keys were received.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our rental over the Christmas holidays was everything we needed. The kitchen was stocked better than any other rental we have used. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The furnishings on all 3 balconies made it hard to choose where to sit. The condo was clean and ready for us and Pat was available for a last minute question on our second day there. This rental was a very positive experience. You won't be disappointed. It's true to the rental description. Thanks to the Kruegers and to Pat!

Fabulous Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at the Beach Cottages and renting this unit.

We shared the unit with another couple and it provides adequate privacy with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The unit is spacious, exceptionally clean, nicely decorated with new furniture and quality linen/towels are provided. The kitchen is well stocked with all the conveniences, dishes, utensils, to prepare great meals if you choose to do so. If not, there are many great eating places close by. Great views are provided from the three balconies. The pool area is exceptionally maintained and the beach is only steps away. The owners and cleaning staff are very friendly and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who wishes for a relaxing vacation in an 5 Star environment!
