About Amanda Brightman

Glenn and I lived in the Tampa/St. Pete area before moving to Charlotte, NC. We missed being close to the Gulf and looked for 4 years before finding the perfect condo for our family vacations. In those 4 years it became apparent that the owners of the condos that we rented rarely or never stayed in their condos. For us, one of the best parts of owning a vacation condo is that we can visit it and make it better every time we are there.

We have renovated the condo with a high level of quality and style for your comfort and enjoyment.

Amanda Brightman purchased this condo in 2011

Why Amanda Brightman chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We visited Indian Shores often when we lived in Florida and when we were looking for a condo we agreed that this was the most beautiful part of the Tampa Bay/St. Pete Gulf Coast. Indian Shores is a quaint beach town with great restaurants, bike/walking lanes and lots and lots of white powdery sand.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo offers fantastic sunsets viewed from our large balcony, the convenience of a full kitchen and ensuite laundry, comfortable new furniture and many extras that enhance our guests' stay. We provide all you need for a relaxing vacation - you provide the bathing suit. Just kick back and listen to the waves while you enjoy the sunset!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been going to the Sandcastle III every couple of years since the kids were very small - and it is one of our favourite spots to vacation when we want a quiet, restful place to stay and unwind. This was our first time ever staying in unit 503 and we must say it was one of, if not the, best. Clean, comfortable, well maintained and obviously a unit that the owners take pride in, and in sharing. We will highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing family time in the sun where you feel comfortable! We definitely plan to be back someday - presuming you will have us.

Lovely accommodations . We would highly recommend.

What a pleasant surprise when we entered the unit, obviously it was recently remodeled. This is our second year to stay at Sand Castle III, but our first year in Unit 503, and we would certainly stay again. Everything was 5 star.

Two weeks at the beach

  • 5 of 5

I believe this is the nicest condo we have stayed in, we were here two years ago, and it was great then, but now they have renovated the kitchen, and both bathroom, along with new leather couches, the condo was super clean, fully furnished with anything you would need, just like being in your own home. Along with the Oct weather, which is the same every year, sunshine and 85 degree's. Can not say enough about Amanda's condo, if you are coming to Indian Rocks beach, this is where to stay. Will be returning next year!!

Nice condo, great beach view!

  • 5 of 5

Sandcastle III #503 was a great rental for our Indian Shores vacation! The condo was clean and well stocked with everything we needed from towels to kitchen items to beach toys. Watching the sunsets over the gulf from the balcony were one of the highlights of the trip. There is a pool and hot tub right on the beach to enjoy. The condo was right on the beach, and close enough to eat at a variety of restaurants, but was also far enough away from Clearwater that the beach wasn't overcrowded at all. We saw a variety of wildlife with everything from cranes and sandpipers to small bonnet head sharks and crabs! There was even a roped off sea turtle nest that we were hoping would hatch while we were there, but unfortunately it didn't! There are many rental companies for beach cruisers, bikes, paddle boards, boats etc. withing walking distance. I would recommend finding a jet ski tour in the area. We were able to ride right along side of dolphins! I'm sure we will be back to visit Indian Shores again!

MAGNIFICENT

  • 5 of 5

There is not much to say about this unit that has not already been said it is absolutely beautiful, decorated to the hilt, clean, the views from the balcony are breathless. It was so nice to walk into this unit and feel at home. We met Kathy who is just a doll and helpful. Amanda the list you sent us on where to go and eat was great. We intend to book this unit immediately for next year. Thank you Amanda for letting us share your unit.

Sandcastle 3, unit 503

  • 5 of 5

It would be difficult to find fault, since we've been to this particular condo at least 3 times. But it is always cool to see the improvements that the owners have made since our last visit. The enlarged shower, tile walls, kitchen improvements, etc were great enhancements to an already great experience. We have visited Indian Rocks Beach at least 15 times in the past 25 years, because of the beautiful beaches, wonderful restaurants, proximity to Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa where a lot of entertainment can be found. But we keep returning to this unit for its 5th floor balcony view of the Gulf, and the constant improvements made by the owners over the years. Recommend this place wildly.
