About Kathryn Oertel

This is my Mom and Dad enjoying a meal on the balcony. A native Floridian I am. However, I lived several years in the Midwest and I can fully appreciate the need to escape from the cold country most anytime between October and April! Staying at the beach is wonderful most anytime. Even during storm season. My favorite time now... I enjoy watching the storms roll in off of the Gulf. There is just something that happens to you as you cross over that bridge to Gulf Blvd. Watch and see!

Kathryn Oertel purchased this condo in 2007

Why Kathryn Oertel chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

It is quaint and just has good bones! Built in 1980 it has this contemporary beachy feel to it. Spacious and comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out with privacy. The view is my favorite part. Sitting on the balcony looking out over the Intercoastal is peaceful beyond words.

What makes this condo unique

View, location, small complex, no elevator waiting, spacious, clean, Trolley stop outside the door, parking under unit, comfortable and did I say View?

Awesome destination to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

We found the property to be roomy, comfortable and accommodating. We appreciated the multiple bedrooms and 2 full baths. We enjoyed being able to fix our meals and wash clothes as needed. We especially loved the pool and close access to the beautiful beach. We enjoyed biking, mini golfing, an afternonn at John's Pass and lunch on the water at St. Petersburg Pier! The property was nicer than we expected, and Kathy was a pleasure to work with. We've told several of our friends about our great vacation, and highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable environment.

Ideal Location and Great Space

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to have selected this location. Amazing - it is not on one of the many toll roads. It was nice to avoid all those stops and fees. And Indian Shores is so far ahead of the pack by only having one lane of traffic running in each direction - the roads all have a pedestrian and bike lanes. The cross walks are respected - and there is one only a short distance from this condo to cross to the ocean. During our stay, activity dropped off in the evening making it quiet and peaceful. We all slept so well. So many places to go and things to do within a short walk or drive. The Seabird Sanctuary was a favorite, as was dinner in John's Pass at the Boardwalk Grill - very simple and served on paper plates but the Grouper was fantastic. Spent one day driving up to Crystal River to swim with the Manatee. I will not forget this vacation!

Loved it, great location and spotless.

  • 5 of 5

this condo was ideal for myself and visitors. I spent a month here and was very comfortable. The master bedroom bed was a dream so comfortable. I had my grandchildren there for 5 nights and hey loved the loft area with 2 full size beds. The location was great with the beach just across the street wih a crosswalk which drivers were very mindfull of.The condo was very roomy and had everything you could possibly need. On arrival we found the unit very clean beds were ready to go which we appreciated after the long drive from Ontario. Anyone we met were extremly friendly. We had no problems so no need to contact Kathy but all neccessary info was well displayed should the need arise. We were travelling with a small dog and really appeciated Kathy allowing thid dropping into JD'S for a bevy and the music. Have already contacted Kathy about a return visit next year

There are many eating places within walking distance or a vey short walk. We enjoye

Great!! Loved it...

  • 5 of 5

This condo was ideal..everything you could want. My daughter, 3 grandsons, granddaughter and myself just spent 7 nights here. It was fantastic. Enjoyed the pool every day, the beach a couple of times and of course just relaxing out on the balcony.

I was a little nervous having 3 small boys with us and trying to keep them quiet but it all worked out. The neighbors that we met were very friendly and said "let them be kids". I really appreciated that!

The one thing that was also fantastic was the fact of wire mesh around the balcony. Made it so much easier with the little ones and not have to worry about them falling through.

Kathy was wonderful and made this a stress free vacation. Would come back in a heartbeat!

Thanks Kathy...

Beautiful and clean condo in a perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5


This rental is exactly as described/pictured in the listing. It is very spacious, clean and well-equipped. The decor is tasteful, and all furniture (esp. comfy beds!) and appliances (washer/dryer, dishwasher, toaster, etc) are in great condition. We had one car with us and found parking to be adequate. The deck is big with comfortable furniture and nice views. And, our 8 year old son LOVED the loft :)


The pool area is nice and quiet; we mostly had it all to ourselves (with the exception of some geckos and intercoastal birds!) whenever we went!


Neighbors/renters/locals that we met during our stay were so friendly and helpful! We keep coming back to Indian Shores because this happens every time we are there!! We also love the peacefulness of Indian Shores as compared to St. Pete Beach or Clearwater, but being close to them and everything else that the beautiful central gulf coast has to offer is awesome! Also, it's only a short drive to Publix, restaurants, shopping, etc.


Perfection! Amazingly peaceful sunsets, interesting sea birds, soft sand, beautiful shells, fishing in the surf and more is only a few steps away...this is my happy place that I daydream about when I'm having a rough day!!

Kathy, Thank you for your hospitality!! We highly recommend your condo and hope to stay again in the future!
