Florida Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Escape to Central Florida's Gulf Coast. Comfortable Lifestyle Vacationing.

The Intercoastal Condominiums are private, spacious and nestled along the Waterway Mangrove Preserve. The small, intimate complex has a star condo named "Just Be". Upon entering the unit, you're welcomed by bright natural light. The kitchen has full-sized appliances including dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and 4-top stove/oven. The cupboards are stocked with dinnerware, flatware, glassware, cooking utensils, coffee maker, toaster and even cooking spices. A granite oversized countertop is ideal for a bar serving area. This open space kitchen flows into the Living Room which has oversized glass sliding doors leading you out to a spacious wooden balcony. Here you'll find an outdoor bistro table and chairs, an electric bbq grill and lush views of the mangroves and the morning sunrise.

The master bedroom features a king-size bed, private bath and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed, spacious dresser and closet. The guest bathroom has an oversized, walk-in shower. Linens and towels are provided. Pack lightly because there's a washer and dryer with laundry products. The laundry space stores an iron and ironing board. A queen size air bed has linens as well as the pull-out sleeper sofa. Up to 8 people will sleep comfortably.

The Living and Kitchen spaces have tile floors while the two bedrooms have beach wood floors with accent rugs. With over 1,100 square feet of space, Just Be is ideal for girlfriend getaways, families and couples who love to cook and chill.

The outdoor pool has an onsite outdoor shower and bathroom. You'll want to spend endless amounts of time on the fine, white sand Indian Shores Beach which is a quick walk from Just Be.

The beach stretches from St. Petersburg to Clearwater so it's ideal for a run, a walk, yoga, fishing, building sand sculptures, and enjoying stunning sunsets on the Gulf Waters.

When flying into Tampa International Airport, you'll have a 40-minute picturesque drive to Indian Shores. There's room for up to 3 vehicles to park at Just Be.

We value our guests, and make the extra effort to provide special touches that make your visit fun, invigorating and relaxing. Just Be has the latest in water toys for the beach, 2 beach bicycles, a beach cart with beach chairs, and beach towels.

About Linda John

Our story begins when I left the Midwest to work at Walt Disney World right out of college. Any free time was spent on the Gulf Coast enjoying the casual lifestyle, sun and beach. I've always had passion for travel so while raising my family in Wisconsin, I jumped at the opportunity to have a condo Florida. Just Be is reflection of my love for the beach, sun and good living. My family and friends vacation frequently, and have given me ideas for my guests. Now my wish for you is that you create your personal memories in a casual, comfortable setting.

Linda John purchased this condo in 2008

Why Linda John chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The Intercoastal is a small, 20-unit condominium property. Think quiet and intimate. Tidy grounds and clean. Just Be condo is value priced and a short walk to the magnificent Gulf Coast line and white fine sand beach that stretches 25 miles.

We stock our cupboards, pantry and closets with the comforts of being home. We're committed to constantly updating and freshening the amenities. We are committed to excellent hospitality and very responsive. Check out our reviews.

What makes this condo unique

My girlfriends love to cook, and my family loves to entertain while away vacationing at Just Be, so its furnished with all kinds of cooking supplies. There's easy transportation via the Sun Trolley when you're ready for a day or evening out, dining, shopping and sightseeing. If you enjoy an active lifestyle, hit the beach! You can "Just Be".

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello! We are the owners of this charming Indian Shores condo, and look forward to sharing our vacation home with you and your family/friends. We love to travel, and have been all over the world for our vacations. But in this quaint beach community, we wanted to invest in our own vacation home because we truly fell in love with the "personality" of this area. We knew we would always want to return to this beatutiful, sunny gulf coast community where people are friendly,casual and lots of fun.



We think our place is ideal, because it is in the heart of all the beach activity, (right on Gulf Blvd.) but a more affordable option if you don't mind walking across the street to access the sugar-sand beach. As you relax on the patio-deck, you can enjoy beautiful sunrises overlooking the inter-coastal waterway and the mangrove conservation preserve.



Inside the condo, you will find plenty of space and all the comforts of home. Since this is our home away from home, you will enjoy a fully equipped living space, lots of dishes, utensils, games, books, linens, beach toys....you get the picture. We appreciate having our condo in a small complex (20 units total). It is very private and quiet, with easy access to all the action of the great restaurants, bars and beach activity.



We hope you will consider spending your vacation at our condo. We have worked hard to ensure you enjoy a clean, comfortable accommodation. Now the rest is up to you. Come to Indian Shores for a vacation in our condo, and JUST BE....!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Just Be and it was fantastic. I was there with my husband and 2 kids and the place was perfect. Very clean, a great deal of room and the kitchen was fantastic and fully stocked with any item you would need. It felt like home. We appreciated the beach toys that were available. The beach access was just across the street and it led you to a beautiful white, sandy beach that stretched for miles. I hope we can return to Indian Shores some day and if we do we would definitely stay here again.

Just Be Condo - Just Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled with my brother & sister with our trip being a mixture of business & pleasure. We spent long days away conducting business so it was so comforting to return to the condo to just catch our breath. It was a perfect fit for the 4 days we were in Indian Shores. The beach access was just a short 2 blocks and always breathtaking to see the beautiful sunsets!! We ate dinner at several restaurants but our favorite was the Pub Waterfront Restaurant, very reasonably priced. We especially enjoyed the outdoor seating in the evening. In terms of customer service, it was second to none. In my haste to leave the condo the morning of checkout, I left several articles of clothing behind. Despite my offer to pay for the shipping, my belongings were shipped to me at no cost!! I have NEVER experienced this level of customer service!! So, I will definitely recommend Just Be Condo to any of my family & friends. We were treated like GOLD!!! Thank you very much!!!

Just Be was Just Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for my friend and I for a little girls getaway. The spacious two bedrooms and two baths along with the great common spaces (living room, patio, dining area, kitchen) made it a great place to relax together and individually. Comfy beds... close to a quiet beach... most things accessible without a car (getting groceries took a little exploration on public transportation but was possible).

It had everything we could want or need in a vacation house and truly felt like home. You would not regret a stay at Just Be!

Just Be beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay!! The condo is beautiful! It's in a small complex with a fantastic location. You can literally walk, bike(which are already there), or trolley everywhere. Linda has has gone out of her way to make sure everything you could want or need for your stay is there. I'm not kidding, everything! She really has gone out of her way to think of comfort and convenience. I've stayed in quite a few vacation rental properties and have never seen one so wonderfully stocked and organized. The booking was quick and simple as well. We are already planning another trip and plan on staying 2 weeks next time.

Family Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first time staying at "Just Be". We have traveled to the area previously, but this year we needed to take our new dog Luna with us on vacation. The condo is well maintained with available amenities such as a full washer / dryer, kitchen and grill!

The location is great...close to the beach and near some terrific restaurants. Slyce Pizza (excellent pizza...like you get in NYC), Conch Republic (has gotten much better) and Crabby Bill's.

We will definitely return again!

Thank you Linda John for your hospitality. :)

Wonderful Condo close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 stayed at this condo for a week. It had everything we needed! Close access to a beautiful beach, lots of dishes & spices to use. The electric grill was wonderful! We cooked all of our meals at the condo & were very pleased. If you have children, stay at this condo! Linda offers lots of beach toys for children to use!
