About the property

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 Indian Shores

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.

This was our third time staying in this condo. We travel to Indian Shores every year and we absolutely love staying here. The condo is spacious and beautiful with gorgeous views of the beach. Also, Mr. Bentley is so easy to rent from and very accessible if you have any questions. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The views from this condo were great, the sand soft white and the breezes tempered the heat from the sun--perfect beach weather! The condo itself was just lovely--beautifully updated, decorated and maintained, very roomy even when there were six staying overnight. We chose the Indian Rocks, Indian Shores area because while our out of state family lived with us on the beach out local family could easily drive over for a days visit. It made for a wonderful family get together. Restaurants, coffee shops and stores made it easy to forget cooking on those days we lingered on the beach til after sunset. I was delighted that the laundry area was just across the hall from our elevator which made that little chore more convenient but do bring quarters😊? Parking under the building made getting into our car more pleasant. The street out front was noisy but the windows are great at shutting out noise and heat. Everyone we met, wether local or visitor , were friendly and helpful.. Mr.Lyle Bently was very kind and patiently answered all my questions for which I am very grateful. In all it was a memorable and safe vacation that our family will want to return to again.
