Indian Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Large Stunning Condo2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths

This lovely 2-bedroom/2-bathroom OCEAN FRONT condominium is a corner unit located in 'The Pointe' oceanfront property on Indian Shores Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Indian Shores is a charming and relaxed gulf coast community just 18 miles west of Tampa in the middle of an island with Clearwater to the north and St. Petersburg Beach to the south.

The condo is located directly on Indian Shores / Indian Rocks Beach and is across the street from The Salt Rock Bar and Grill (one of the best restaurants in the area)... The complex is called The Pointe because we sit out the farthest of any complex on the sand making us the closest to the water. Being a corner unit with nothing infront of or beside us gives this unit one of the most panoramic views possible. This corner unit comes fully furnished with all stainless steel appliances, granite counters, maple cabinets, custom bathrooms with full tile, Berber carpet, electric window shades, custom furniture, furnished private balcony bbq etc.

Our Florida gulf coast condo in Indian Shores features a 3rd floor, private corner balcony with patio furniture and has a beautiful view that looks all the way out and all the way down the gulf on both sides! A reserved parking space in our under-the-building parking garage protects your vehicle from heating up in the hot Florida sun.

For your entertainment, there is 40' HIGH DEFINITION LCD FLAT SCREEN Cable TV with several premium and on demand movie channels all included, a VCR, DVD/Blu-Ray player and stereo in the living room. We even include a DVD library with over 50 top box office titles. Our Florida gulf coast family condo has a beautiful, modern, full-size kitchen that includes all stainless steel appliances and includes a large refrigerator with ice maker, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, coffeemaker, cookware, bake ware, glasses and utensils. The kitchen even comes complete with a high end KEURIG coffee brewer. We even provide a carousel stocked with a variety of gourmet coffee to get you started so your first morning is as bright as can be.

The master bedroom has a QUEEN-size bed and private full bath and the windows even feature shades with a light blocking feature to let you sleep away the day if you like! The second bedroom has a QUEEN-size bed and separate full bath. There is also a new pull out sleeper sofa with high end sleeper mattress.

Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay is only 45 minutes and Orlando Theme Parks (Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, MGM, Epcott Center) are about 90 minutes. Surrounded by warm, gentle surf and plenty to do, or do nothing but relax and walk barefoot on the beautiful, white sandy beach right outside your door.

Easy access to all central Florida and gulf coast world-famous attractions, including Disney, Orlando theme parks, Universal Studios, MGM, Wet and Wild Water Park, Epcot Center. Our luxury gulf coast Florida vacation condo is only 45 minutes from Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay. Walk to mini-market, great restaurants, shops and entertainment. Enjoy beachside volleyball, swimming in the warm Florida gulf coast waters, sunning, snorkeling, shelling, sand castles, fishing, boogie boarding, parasailing, miniature golf, public golf courses and glorious sunsets.

About Lyle Bentley

I have always been a water person for recreation and loved owning and fixing up real estate professionally.

Lyle Bentley purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lyle Bentley chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I have always love the beach and the water. When I started looking to buy a place I found this property early on but kept looking. NOTHING else I saw had a view that was even close. Most had a building next to you or in front of you and just didn't have the same sweeping views. It was one of a kind.

What makes this condo unique

I remodeled the condo as owner occupied while I was spending a couple weeks a month in Florida for work. Now that my work has ended I get to share it with all the great folks on VRBO. ENJOY!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming here every summer for the past 8 years. This property has by far the best view available in the entire area and the owner is great to deal with. The property is quiet, very clean and well decorated. We will certainly be back next year and can't wait to stay here again.

Very clean, fresh and updated property. Very well stocked and ready. Location is AAA

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying at this property. It was everything it was advertised fact more. The overall property was very clean, updated with current fixtures, appliances and wow, what a view.

The unit came equipped with everything needed for our stay, from coffee maker [and coffee] to dishes, cookware, sheets, towels, and even beach chairs. We have absolutely nothing negative to say in our review, as we were delighted with every element / aspect of this very nice oceanfront unit. And the town of Indian Shores is one of the nicest, cleanest and non-congested areas along this coast. All in all....AAA rating - 5 stars *****.

Thank you for a great vacation.

Amazing time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned to Indian Shores for our 2nd time at the end of June. We all had such a great time, spending all day right on the beach (steps away from the condo). Although we never wanted to leave the water at the end of the day, it was always a pleasure to head up to the condo and still be "on the beach". While the family got ready for the evening, we hung out on the balcony admiring the view and patiently waiting for our front row seats to an amazing sunset each night. Once the sun went down, we grabbed food from the Salt Rock right across the street. The kids, my wife and I enjoyed this either to go or relaxed inside just about each evening (the kids still ask to have that for dinner now). Our mornings consisted of eating breakfast at the local coffee shop just steps out our front door (maui muffin is amazing). We grabbed coffee and a bite and enjoyed it once again on our front row seats, where we saw dolphin and a manatee each morning swim by. The condo itself was immaculate and offered everything to make us comfortable (from the furniture inside and outside, there wasn't a bad seat). We are already in discussion on dates to return next year to stay again. Lyle was great and quick to respond to my many questions. Thanks Lyle for making the trip sO relaxing.

Lovely property! Amazing views and the place is very roomy.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the view not only from the balcony that feels like its right on the ocean, but inside the condo as well with windows in all the rooms that have an ocean view. The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated. The beach area was also clean and very private. The whole area is also very nice and quiet. All the local restaurants we tried served amazing fresh seafood with a wonderful small town atmosphere. Overall a very nice, relaxing place to stay and I've already recommended it to friends.

Had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

Definitely enjoyed my 5 night stay at this property. The parking is covered, the proximity to the beach was great. Had a great restaurant within a 2 minute walk and a great coffee shop within a 1 minute walk.

The condo was nice, and neatly furnished. The balcony over looking the ocean was neat. i would seriously consider renting this one again.

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is Amazing! Our experience with renting the condo and staying there couldn't have been better. Lyle was extremely easy to works with and replied very quickly to my many questions.

There were 6 of us who stayed there (including 3 kids under 3), and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The Keurig was fantastic in the mornings, and there is plenty if room in the kitchen, with all the utensils you we needed. We didn't make it to the beach for a sunset, but that didn't matter since we had the perfect sunset every night while sitting in the patio chairs. The beach is a short elevator ride downstairs and your there, perfect for kids who need to nap or don't last long at the beach. The sand is perfect!! No shoes needed, and the beach wasn't crowded at any point of our stay. October's weather was fantastic with no humidity and high's around 75. I would recommend bringing your own beach towels since there are only a few provided, and it's better to have more than have to do laundry.

The only thing that I did not anticipate was that the laundry is coin operated, located outside the unit and shared by 4 units, not a big deal if you plan ahead and bring quarters, and don't plan to do much laundry. If you have been looking and looking for a great, affordable place to stay that's right on the beach, BOOK THIS CONDO!! You won't regret it. We can't wait to go back...Thanks Lyle for this great vacation destination!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful Condo. Very spacious, and all brand new. Perfect location. Coffee on the balcony every morning, and beautiful sunsets in the evening. Walk outside and you're on the beach. The restaurant across the street was great for a special occasion. (My daughter's 16th birthday) Would definitely stay again.
