3. Staying in a unit and working directly with the owner has huge benefits, Like generally, a lower rate. Detailed info on the unit, building and the area as well.

4. We have MOST weeks open starting April 8th and the rest of 2017 and generally rent on a Saturday to Saturday basis. Some times for longer than a week and at certain times of the year even MID-WEEK bookings.

Lets be sure to TALK about your visit.


No doubt you have more important questions to be asked and answered., so we look forward to talking with you (727-595-5727). We are local owners and practice the old fashioned virtues of honesty, dependability and knowledge. This conversation should begin the process of two way 'faith and trust' between us. You get a GREAT beachfront condo and we get another happy visitor (and review). A true WIN/WIN situation, right?

The following is what makes a PEACH on the BEACH --- It is a 2/br-2/ba Direct Gulf unit and on the Top floor, of five, with CLEAR views, up and down the entire BEACH, from, what would be YOUR very own balcony. The PEACH ON THE BEACH is only one of four units, on the TOP floor/of five, in the entire building, which faces directly to the West, and so, the Gulf on Mexico. The view of the Gulf of Mexico, is one of the biggest things that you desire on your visit to Florida, right? And, how can you do better, than to have it right out in front of you. The PEACH is updated, upscale & CLEAN, with a garage, with beach toys too. We have just finished putting in a new tray ceiling in the kitchen and added LED lighting. At the same time, we replaced our dining room chandelier and the results are spectacular. Also, we have added new micro-fiber furniture in the living room, including a very comfortable chaise lounge. When you walk into the "PEACH" you will appreciate the open feeling that the 10 foot ceilings provide. The full floor to ceiling drapes supply a feeling of warmth in the unit. Visitors rave about how comfortable our king sized bed is in the master bedroom. The master bedroom, bathroom offers a SEPARATE tub and walk-in shower. Also, the walk-in closet seems to be greatly appreciated, by many of our visitors. Finally, new ceiling fans and also, new twin beds in the second bedroom.

Flash !!! This condo is right out there and you will love that DIRECT Gulf of Mexico "top" view in all directions. You will find this condo CLEAN, as we do prepare it ourselves. This is a VERY important point and overlooked by many first time visitors.

Our Beach Palms penthouse condo is located in/on the barrier island town of Indian Shores, FL. with Clearwater Beach to the North and St Pete Beach to the South. This CLEAN and nicely DECORATED condo offers two bedrooms with a king in the master and twins in the second and is located in a five story (top-floor) mid-rise upscale building DIRECTLY on the BEACH with glass elevators, pool(heated), garage and, as you might guess, fantastic views and sunsets.

Beach Palms until recently was known as Beach Cottage III with a reputation for being one of the very best WEEKLY rental buildings in the area. Look up and down the white sandy beach from the living room balcony and listen to the waves. You can almost TOUCH the water. Yes, this is your Florida dream vacation hideaway! The condo is decorator furnished, immaculate, and has a fully-equipped kitchen with a washer and dryer.

A Home AWAY from Home: Amenities: Free WiFi, with HD TV in living room and cable in the master and guest bedrooms. Ten foot ceilings, Drapes ( not verticals), Air conditioning(brand new system), flat screen TV (3), Stereo, Pool (heated in season), Microwave, Dishwasher, Full kitchen, Washer, Dryer, No pets allowed, Linens provided, Cookware and utensils provided, Gas BBQ, Charcoal BBQ, Garage, Heated pool (In October '16 the entire heated pool was REDONE and so is very pleasing to the eye), Glass elevators (2), Hurricane shutters. Recently we added free WiFi, along with HD TV in the living room with cable TV in both Bedrooms. Recently, we added NEW furniture in the Living Room. Our garage has been up-graded too. The floor has been power washed and the entire garage has been painted with new base-boards added. So, now, not only is the condo (itself) CLEAN and upgraded, but the garage, as well.

We TRY HARD to please our visitors: Please take the time to read our testimonials. After your stay in our VERY upscale Beachfront Condo we would encourage you to add your comments. How do you beat a TOP FLOOR / DIRECT GULF FRONT unit, like this one ??? Yes, a true 'PEACH on the BEACH'.

About Susan Boettle

Susan and I (Vic) have lived and rented beachfront condos for over 30 years. Susan hails from upstate NY (Cortland) and has lived locally here in the Clearwater/St Pete area, for over many years. I grew up and lived in the Chicago/Peoria area coming to Florida 30 years ago. This is when I was lucky enough to have met and married Susan. She graduated from the Univ. of South Florida and I received my degree from Bradley Univ. in Peoria, IL. Susan is a 30 year retired Pinellas County teacher (K) and very proud of it. Finally, I convinced her to join me in retirement. Enough about us, what about you and yours?

Susan Boettle purchased this condo in 2002

Why Susan Boettle chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Susan has the patience and knowledge to help anyone intending to visit this area. We have put our hearts and souls into making our direct beachfront condo one of the BEST on the beach. Add to that the direct, top floor location and you have a winner for your holiday. Worried about you car, then you will love our garage. How many condos offer you a garage? Best of all, is the unobstructed view from the private balcony, directly over the Gulf. Please, take a look at our pictures and you will see the exact Gulf views, of the entire beach. Each yea,r we make improvements in the unit. In 2015, we put in a new tray kitchen ceiling with LED lighting and a new chandelier in the dinning room. Last yea,r it was new micro-fiber living room furniture, including a chaise lounge, and the year before that we added free WiFi and HD TV in the living room. In the previous year, we put new tile in the entry hallways, kitchen and both bathrooms. The list goes on and on, but we hope you get the idea!!! This place is maintained to very high standards, which we hope our visitors will appreciate and enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

If you plan to visit the area, you need someone you can trust, which describes us. Tired of dealing with fast talking, rude, only interested in getting your booking people? That is NOT us. We like the old fashioned telephone, so that we can describe everything in full and to your complete satisfaction. We have been as honest as we possibly can be, with our pictures. We see pictures on the internet that are taken at the best possible angles, that represent views, that the complex offers, that make not true to the actual unit. We just shake our heads and feel sorry for the folks who get fooled' by such half truths. This is one reason we meet and greet our visitors in person. We view the grounds together and walk into the unit with you. Someone not happy? This has yet to happened. If it were to occur, we would talk about it 'on the spot' and work it out. Finally, since we meet and greet all of our visitors, we provide the keys, so you do not need to drive up and down the beach (or fool with a lock box) to get keys. No doubt, flying or driving you will be tired and who needs to look for the whereabouts of the keys?

Finally, since we have built a two way 'faith and trust' on the telephone, we have NO need to ask you to pay in advance. Payment is upon arrival. Many operations (most, if not all) ask you to pay in advance. Doesn't that make you feel a bit uncomfortable? It does when we travel. We do ask for a reservation deposit, when you book the condo. This assures us, that you are indeed coming and makes us feel better about turning others away for the dates you have reserved. We await your phone call and look forward to it!!! Evenings are best for us and we can be reached at 727-595-5727.

Sure thing, and thanks again! Diane & John

What a nice EM. Thank you! We can only hope that our "paths" cross again. If any of your friends are in need of a place, kindly, let us know, so that we can "roll-out" the red carpet for them, too.

You are GREAT people and we only wish we had MORE like you. Hope you enjoy those Stein Mart "goodies" and that the golf game stays up to "par".

Best Regards, Vic & Susan


Hi Vic & Susan! Thanks so much for the prompt return of our security deposit.

We enjoyed our Beach Cottages stay as well as could be expected under the difficult personal circumstances. The condo was beautiful and we enjoyed keeping it that way. We felt as if it was our own home. We'd love to come again, if our travels to Florida take us to the Gulf Coast. We'll certainly recommend our places to friends and family, should the opportunity arise. Again it was a pleasure to meet you both, and thank you for all your help during our stay.

Agree with all the superlatives most reviewers have used to describe this property. The garage parking seems underrated or not mentioned by most. It was great to not have to get into a car which had baked in the hot Florida sun for hours. The available shopping carts by the garage elevator were very helpful when returning from a trip to Publix and ABC!

We'll be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Tanks for the GREAT REVIEW. That you would take the time, is most appreciated. Shows what GREAT people you are and we would love to have you back. Some people make fun of us because we only work via the telephone. No automatic booking for us. We want to get to know our visitors and for them to know us. Then our visitors have a GREAR vacation and we get another GREAT REVIEW. A true WIN/WIN. Warm Regards, Vic & Susan

Back to our home from home

  • 5 of 5

We returned again this year (as always!) to our home from home at the Peach on the Beach. I cannot rate this condo highly enough, we should have a 6 star rating. Always a joy to rent from Vic and Susan, we just call them when we are on the causeway from Tampa and they are there at the condo to meet us with their smiling faces. 😊

This is by far the best equipped and cleanest condo we have rented in the world and just absolute peace to go to sleep in that comfy bed wth the sound of the waves lapping on the shore.

Will see you next year Vic and Susan.

Thank you for this years visit, and 6 star rate level and for rolling your deposit over for next years visit. Have a GREAT year and take good care of each other. Warmest Regards, Vic & Susan

Very clean

  • 5 of 5

The views from this condo were magnificent. Everything we needed was provided. Susan was so nice to deal with, very friendly! The garage parking was really not needed but came with the unit (and the charge for it). Condo overall very nice, clean and modern. Thank you Susan.

This is a fantastic place to vacation. This was our first time to this area and we LOVED it!! The condo is clean and beautiful. The view from the balcony is breath taking especially at sunset. There are many restaurants, stores and activities close by. Susan is an absolute sweetheart and a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be renting from her and Victor again!

Owner's Response: You folks were a joy to have. You too, were a "pleasure" to work with. When planning a vacation, it is so important to have "faith and trust" working both ways. So your visit was a "win/win" for both of us. And finally, you say that you plan on coming to see us again and we say to that --- we can hardly wait. Have a GREAT YEAR, warm regards, Vic & Susan

-- FLASH -- 'Beach within Reach' and condo is a 'Peach'---(on the BEACH). One of a kind and YOU will love it as you look out from YOUR private balcony directly at the Gulf of Mexico. Or you can look, right (north) and or left (south) the beach and see what amounts to miles of open beach. The "super" unit is kept Ultra CLEAN and ready for your visit. We do weekly bookings, generally on a Saturday/Saturday basis.

We are accepting weekly bookings for the rest 2017 & 2018, generally on a Saturday to Saturday basis. We think you will enjoy working directly with the owner/Susan, as she is always willing to answer questions and offer friendly advice. Also, suggestions for improvements for your return visit or for others are always welcome and appreciated. After all we do hope you will return every year to see what we have new and different.

Susan, at 727-595-5727, evenings best for us.

Here is what makes a true PEACH on the BEACH. ----------------------------

Top Floor (of 5) and Direct GULF view --- with garage --- one of BEST beachfront buildings on the entire beach and one of the best units in the building. Hard to beat !!! What a perfect VIEW !!! Take a peak at our pictures. Check out our calendar and be sure to read all of our five star REVIEWS. Can they all be wrong?

FREE high-speed WiFi, with HD TV in Living room and flat screen cable in both bedrooms. We have NEW living room furniture for your enjoyment. Also, we have just added a trey ceiling in the kitchen with new LED lighting.
