About Beth Levine

With my sister and her native born and bred husband living in Orlando, we vacationed in the Indian Shores area together for over 20 years. Living in New Jersey, a condo on the beach in Indian Shores was the perfect place for my sister and I to vacation with our husbands and girls every winter.

In 2004, I decided to buy the condo I had always dreamed of owning right on our favorite beach. I knew my sister, daughter and nieces would enjoy vacationing in my condo, and it also gave me an opportunity to share our favorite vacation area with other families.

Our families have wonderful memories of body surfing, collecting seashells and sand dollars, and watching the dolphins travel the gulf coastline. The tons of seashells we've collected and hundreds of family photos we've taken throughout the years remind us of these memorable family vacations. Now that we've been fortunate enough to buy a beautiful condo on the beach, we look forward to sharing it not only with our own family, but are happy to offer it to others who want to enjoy this beautiful area in Florida to create their own memorable family vacations.

To us, the beaches in this area are as beautiful as in the Caribbean and the calm gulf waters provide the perfect surroundings and fun activities for the entire family. Although we have vacationed in many areas of the United States, the sunsets on Florida's gulf coast are breathtaking to see. There is nothing better than lying close to the sound of the soft gentle surf to experience its perfect relaxing pleasure.

So be our guests, and contact us to enjoy our resort condominium on the beach for your vacation on the beautiful Florida Gulf Coast!

Beth Levine purchased this condo in 2004

Why Beth Levine chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Our family-friendly building has all individually-owned condos, with owners who take pride in keeping both the building and their condos updated and with many amenities for guests.

We have a very active condo association that looks to continually improve the building, adding a bicycle rack, outdoor shower, new poolside bathroom, new BBQ grills, lounges, and chairs and tables.

In 2012 we replaced all the washer/dryers in the laundry rooms on every floor in the condo building. The personnel in our onsite management office can provide you with change/rolls of quarters for laundry. The machines are reasonably priced at $1.25 for the washers and $1.00 for the dryers.

Our property manager and professional cleaning company, hired to maintain the grounds and common areas of our condo building, do a meticulous job. The cool paver deck that surrounds the building, stairwells and elevator are all very well maintained. We replaced our elevator for one newer and faster just a few years ago.

As a member of the condo Board for over 6 years, I was involved in the decision to install Wi-Fi, free for all owners and guests, and accessible from all the condos, balconies, pool, deck and BBQ/picnic areas. The bandwidth has been increased several times, so that response time and downloads are smooth and completed in a short period of time.

What makes this condo unique

The onsite building office offers the convenience of picking up keys right at the building, and avoiding a stop at a rental office, after a long drive or flight traveling to your vacation destination. Guests are able to pick up keys 24 hrs/day - 7 days/week.

Each condo comes with an assigned parking space. There are additional guest spots available on a first come, first serve basis. A second parking pass must be requested at the onsite office and the office personnel will assign parking. A second parking spot is not guaranteed available, especially during holidays, high season and Spring Break.

Our management company offers free bicycle and free DVD rentals. Please inquire at the office. There is a bicycle rack near the parking garage for locking up rented bicycles.

BBQ grills and picnic area overlook the beach. Grills are charcoal.

Just 1/2 block from our building, across the street on the intracoastal waterway side of Gulf Blvd. is a mini-market. There are several restaurants located in strip malls along Gulf Blvd. that are all walking distance from the condo.

There is a bicycle lane that runs along Gulf Blvd. Traffic is limited to 25 mph on this one-lane in each direction road that travels through the quaint gulf coast communities between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach.

Tampa International Airport is just a 30-minute drive the condo and Clearwater/St. Petersburg is just a 20-minute drive, so check flights out of each airport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hope to return again to this great condo right on the beach. The owner was very helpful responding to emails and providing answers to all our questions. The condo was very clean and had all the necessities and extras that made our stay very enjoyable.

Loved Indian Shores and Great Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

It was my family and my first trip to Indian Shores and we had a fantastic time. My wife and kids didn't want to leave and we are definitely going to plan a return trip sometime this winter when the kids are off from school.

First, I have to say that the beach in Indian Shores is one of the nicest I have ever been to. The sand is fine and white and the beach is clean and just perfect. The gulf water was just the right temperature and I was able to swim an endless lap, stopping just when I was too tired to swim anymore. I missed my morning swim in the gulf when I had to go back to my Olympic pool at the gym.

The condo building was right on the beach and the location in Indian Shores made it easy to get everywhere. Great restaurants nearby, and going up to Clearwater or down to St. Pete were both just quick rides away. One day we decided to try the trolley, and the kids loved it. The building itself was very well kept, and the people in the office in the building were friendly and very helpful.

The condo was great and had everything we needed. It is a big condo for a 2-bedroom and it was nicely furnished and very comfortable. Although the kitchen is not new, all the appliances worked fine and it was very well equipped so my wife and I cooked breakfast every morning and a couple of dinners. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with our morning coffee and even though it wasn't a gulf view, it was nice just looking out at the palm trees and watching the early morning bicyclers and people walking by on Gulf Blvd.

We are definitely planning to return this winter and hope this condo is available again, as it was perfect for our family. Beth, the owner, always responded quickly to our emails and answered all our questions. Since we had not vacationed here before, she referred us to her website, which had loads of information about things to do and some very good restaurants. It was just a great vacation and I think anyone would enjoy it.

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our vacation, thanks to the lovely area and beautiful facilities.

The condo is located on a stop with great places to eat, an awesome mini-golf course, convenient shopping, and John's Pass Village and Boardwalk. You will never find yourself short of activities to do.

If you're like me and just want to relax, you're all set. The pool is beautiful and heated, which really helped me venture into the water when it was in the high 70s and low 80s. The condo is located right on the beach, so you can roll out of bed and find yourself on the sand. The condo rooms are big and clean, and the facility staff is helpful and friendly.

If you like to cook, the kitchen is very well-equipped and set up very well for meal preparation. We really had everything we needed for the few nights we decided to cook. The beds were comfortable and so was the living room furniture. Great flat screen TVS in the all room was a nice touch. I highly recommend this condo for a great vacation!

Beautiful Beach. Terrific Condo. A Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I haven't been on a vacation for more than 5 years, as times have been hard. We got away to FL for a week, and it was a concern to put our long-awaited vacation in Beth's hands. She helped book us a vacation in a lovely condo, exactly what we were looking for, and made sure we knew all the right places to eat, play and see.

If you want to relax, have a great time with the kids, and get what you pay for and more, don't walk, run, to Indian Shores ... and tell Beth "The Cavanaugh Family says hi!"

Beast Beach Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end.. this was a truly enjoyable experience. Located right on the beach, very affordable, and a great place to get away from it all. The beach was all it was supposed to be, clean sand, great for waling up and down the beach collecting seashells, which was our favorite activity. The on-site swimming pool and pool area was clean and well maintained.

The condo was very attractive, comfortable and a great place to relax after the beach and swimming. The kitchen was fully equiped.

Dealing with the owners was easy, they explained everything to perfection, offered helpful suggestions, and made the trip a totally fun and unique experience. Kudos. I would recommend this property to any and everyone looking to get away and have a fun time...

Great condo for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a great vacation at this condo in Indian Shores. This is the first time we rented right on the beach. We had always stayed on the intracoastal, but after being right on the beach, I would never rent off the beach ever again. We all really liked this building and the condo was great. It is really big and very comfortable. The pool is also larger than most and it was always warm enough for us to swim in.

We were able to walk to some nice shops and really good restaurants. But the best part of all was being on the beach. Just loved it!!

Indian Shores
Car: not necessary

Indian shores is a unique gulf-front beach community, located 20 miles west of Tampa in the middle of a barrier island with Clearwater 15 minutes to the north and st. Petersburg beach 20 minutes to the south. The island is accessible by car by driving across a bridge that spans over Tampa bay.

The south Florida museum is the largest natural and cultural history museum on Florida's gulf coast. Feed the manatees, and visit snooty, the oldest known manatee in the world, who is a permanent resident at the the Parker manatee aquarium. The aquarium provides visitors an opportunity to see manatees in the wild.

Pass-a-grille beach, at the southern tip of the 13-mile long barrier island, is a great place to walk along the rocks and find beautiful seashells that are left for you to pick up off the beach during low tide. Enjoy the magnificent sunsets over the gulf while enjoying AL fresco dining at one of the small restaurants or pubs across from the beach.

John's pass historic fishing village and boardwalk

Pinellas county's #1 tourist attraction is located on gulf blvd., just 10 minutes south of Indian shores. This quaint turn-of-the-century fishing pier features more than 100 unique shops, inviting eateries, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shell tours, boat rentals, para sailing and jet skiing and a 1,100-foot long pier. The beach is a short stroll away. There are many festivals held at john’s pass historic fishing village, including a seafood festival, veterans day boat parade, Christmas in the village and john levique pirate days. John’s pass historic fishing village, located in Madeira beach, is close to st. Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa, and just a short drive to the Orlando area.

Suncoast seabird sanctuary, located in Indian shores, is the largest wild bird hospital and rehabilitation center in the u.S. This nonprofit organization admits over 8,000 injured birds each year. The sanctuary is world renowned for its innovative rehabilitation techniques, and was the first facility to breed eastern brown pelicans in captivity.

Indian shores parks

There are three beautiful parks right in Indian shores for you to enjoy during your vacation. They are open to the public and are wonderful places to spend some family time and just enjoy a relaxing walk. They are set among the beautiful Florida foliage and offer a warm tropical atmosphere to watch the boats and maybe even see some dolphins or manatees along the Intracoastal waterway.

Cruises and tours

Enjoy a cruise or tour during your stay at my condo in Indian shores. Here are some i recommend:

The calypso queen is a 150-passenger dinner and sightseeing ship that cruises along the calm waters of Clearwater harbor. Relax and enjoy your dinner and watch dolphins follow along.

Also in Clearwater, cruise away into the fantasy world of swashbucklers on captain memo’s original pirate cruise. Enjoy free soft drinks, beer or wine.

No trip to Florida's gulf coast is complete without seeing dolphins playing in the serene gulf waters. Dolphin encounter, in Clearwater, guarantees a dolphin sighting or another trip is free on any of the one-hour-plus cruises. Enjoy your cruise with unlimited beer, wine and soda.

At Hubbard's marina dolphin watch, located at john’s pass in Madeira beach, cruise on one of the dolphin watch/nature cruises and shop the beautiful boardwalk. At john’s pass in Madeira beach, there are activities for the entire family. Deep-sea fishing trips, seafood restaurant and dolphin watch.

The Clearwater marine aquarium is a nonprofit working aquarium dedicated to public education, marine research, animal assisted therapy, and the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of sick or injured marine animals. See dolphins, sea otters, sea turtles, stingrays, and estuaries. Take the popular sea life safari boat tour to get your picture taken with a dolphin. When you visit the Clearwater marine aquarium, make sure and see winter the dolphin. Winter is a baby dolphin who was rescued after her tail was caught in a crab trap, and who survived when he was made a one-of-a-kind prosthetic tail.

John’s adventure island – Busch gardens water park -

Soaking, sunning and relaxing - that's what life's all about at adventure island. A step through the entrance and you're transported straight to the Florida keys and the laid-back lifestyle that made them famous. Adventure island's 30 acres provide water-soaked excitement for guests of all ages.

Rated #1 best zoo in the u.S. By parents magazine, Tampa's lowry park zoo features more than 1,500 animals in 56 acres of lush natural habitats. With engaging interactive exhibits, visitors can enjoy close, but safe contact with many species in the Tampa's lowry park zoo.

The pinellas trail is a linear park and recreation trail, which currently extends from st. Petersburg to tarpon springs. It is a unique, protected green space for bikers, joggers, skaters and walkers.
