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 Indian Shores

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.

Fabulous unit, everything you need plus more

  • 5 of 5

Great views from 3 balconies, loved seeing dolphins in the intercoastal from the unit balcony. Very well equipped unit with everything you need to make it a great stay. Great beach that we walked for hours. Pool is exceptional in the it's saline (not Chlorine) with doesn't burn your eyes, easy on the skin and doesn't ruin your bathing suit. Hope to make it back soon!!

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

The condo is a good size and was clean. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and there are plenty of towels/linens.

Tom was a great host- got back to us very quickly. Check in was easy.

The building is well maintained and quiet.

There are bbqs for use that were cleaned daily.

The hot tub and pool were nice and warm on the cooler days. Just a warning to check the pool- it may have been just an issue when we were there but the "salt water" pool had other chemicals that caused severe skin irritation and ruined our bathing suits.

Unfortunately, we were unable to stay in this beautiful condo because of Hurricane Irma. The owners were wonderful to us. We appreciated their kindness and concern for our safety during this difficult time. We will definitely try to stay at their place again!

Beautiful condo, close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was well stocked with everything you would need. Plenty of room and the three decks offered different views of the Gulf and bay. Very secure, however you need to have your key to go beach or re-enter from beach. Great location, had a wonderful time!

The condo is beautiful, and the beach is clean and quiet. Excellent place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and the condo! The condo is well appointed and updated. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The beach is lovely. It's clean and quiet, a great place to watch the sun set. The only thing we found to be a bit of a pain was the locked doors! A key is required to get onto the beach and back onto the property, to get into the pool area, and to get into the elevator or staircase. Because there were six of us and only two sets of keys, this was sometimes a pain. It's also worth noting that beach access isn't from the pool; it's from the parking area, a level below the pool. This seemed odd, but we still loved staying here. The property and surrounding area is beautiful!
