GREAT!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo. The owners as well as the lady at the office were great to work with. It was our first time visiting Indian Shores and we will definitely return and request this same condo. Very welcoming and just a great all around vacation for us. Thanks so much! We look forward to returning. Perfect location right on the beach and the pool was very well kept ad well!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in Indian Shores. It's quiet and this condo has all the convenience of home. Fully stocked kitchen. Plenty of towels and beach equipment. Walk out to the beach. Walk along the intercoastal waterway. Location is close to restaurants. Management company are onsite and very accommodating. Owners are very pleasant to deal with. Most enjoyable and relaxing vacation, this property won't disappoint.

Wonderful View, Amazing Beach, & Full of Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This rental met all our expectations for a rental on the beach. The condo is equipped with everything a family needs to have a wonderful stay. I lived in Florida a few miles away and this home was warm and inviting and reminded me of home. Met my expectations, wonderful homeowners. You will not be disappointed.

Blissfully relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Trip from Tampa airport easy drive about 20 miles! Check in, friendly staff greeted by Jonnie, who is very pleasant. Had everything ready, explained where to park how to get to our rental unit. Also gave directions to local grocery store, and recommendations on where to grab a bite to eat! Excellent advice!

Our unit was everything it was discribed in the on line listing. Furnishings were comfortable and decorative great beach atmosphere. Kitchen had everything you needed, well stocked with the feeling of home, didn't lack anything. Most times away from home usually find the beds to be lacking, but can't say that this time. Was able to get a great night sleep everynight! 2 full bathrooms, plenty of towels, blow dryer in master bathroom. Flat screen TV in both bedrooms, and large one in the livingroom with full cable channels, and DVD player. Unit was spotlessly clean, and is very well maimaintained. Building is right on thd beach, head right out the back of the building and you on the sand! Owner had beach chairs, sand toys if you have children with you. You don't have to worry about dragging a bunch stuff with you to have a great time. Just pack your personal clothing and your set for one great vacation! The owner of our unit couldn't have been more helpful, offering advice before we even left on vacation. Checked in with us during the week to see if everything was satisfactory and if we needed anything.

There are plenty of places to go and see all within a short drive, or after stocking the frig for the week spend your time simple relaxing out on the beach or enjoying the view on the balcony. Ours was facing the channel, not the ocean but it didn't lack in scenery. Actual enjoyed it more being able to see boats going by at night, while lounging in the livingroom.

John's Pass cute little area that offers places to eat, shops, and local tours, you can rent wave runners, go fishing, dolphin watching, you name they have it. Only about 5 miles or so from Holiday Villas. Clearwater beach area 7 to 8 miles north, not far from most everything you may be interested in doing. Best time spent over our week was the daily walks on the beach, with the most gorgeous sunsets!

I give the overall experience a 5 star rating! Would recommend this to family, friends and anyone who reads this review! Go have a fun filled week or kick back and relax!!

Wonderful stay in Indian Shores Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful! The unit was clean and very well furnished. The beds were comfy and afforded restful sleep so we could hit the beach again the next day! Although the unit does not have the most "up to date" finishes ie: granite counter tops, it had EVERYTHING we needed for a stay at the beach! So.....what more could you ask for - clean unit, comfy beds, cool air conditioning and good water pressure in the showers! The best recommendation that I can give is that we will return to this unit!

Beautiful location, family friendly!

  • 4 of 5

Holiday Villas II is a wonderful property located along the quiet shores of the Gulf. Our unit was spacious, huge balcony, games for kids, and fully stocked. Howard was wonderful to work with and made sure our stay was pleasant. The My Vacation app was AMAZING!! I had time to plan out our days, explore nearby restaurants, and learn about the property weeks before our stay. My children, ages 6&8, were sad to leave. Tip for families- be sure to visit Surf Style at Pier 60 in Clearwater and go indoor surfing. What a blast! Pier 60 also has a great playground. Nearby in Largo go to Airheads indoor trampoline arena. It's wall to wall bouncing fun for kids & adults and not to mention a great workout! We will surely return to Indian Rocks beach, thanks again Howard!!
