Overview

Florida Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Ultimate View - Complete with Oceanfront & Intercoastal Views

Our family has created many wonderful memories in our Gulf Front condo. We first fell in love with the views from this 2nd story condo and decided to completely renovate the unit. The 12 ft sliding glass door provides a spectacular view of the ocean that you can enjoy from sunrise to sunset. The rear of the unit faces the intercoastal waterway, which allows you to also have a peek at the intercoastal from your bedroom.

The luxurious top to bottom renovation of our spacious two bedroom, two bathroom unit was recently completed. The upgrades are endless, all countertops are granite, stainless steel appliances, NEW furniture and 18' porcelain tile throughout, and the bedrooms and living areas have been equip with ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, en suite bathroom with a walk in shower and 32' cable TV. The second bedroom has plush queen and full sized beds and a 32' cable TV. The second bathroom is equip with double sinks and a bathtub/shower combination. The spacious living room is setup for entertaining and has a 50' cable TV with DVD player. The oversized 17 ft balcony is perfect for outdoor dining or relaxing.

Holiday Villas III is a resort with a year round heated oceanfront swimming pool. The view from the pool is virtually unobstructed and steps to the white sandy beach. It is truly the best on the beach. If you chose our condo, we will also give you access to our beach chairs, beach toys, rafts, boogie boards or any other item in our patio closet. The resort includes: charcoal BBQ grills, tiki huts for family gatherings, beach volleyball, shuffleboard, off street reserved and guest parking, and last but certainly not least a PRIVATE FISHING PIER and a day dock for boats.

The Disney theme parks in Orlando or the Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa are a perfect day trip activity from Holiday Villas III. Our Grandson Donovan's personal favorite is the local star, Winter, at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The Indian Shore community offers fishing, golf courses, and water sports. If you are a sports enthusiast, you can catch a football game at Raymond James Stadium, baseball game at Tropicana Field or a hockey game (a favorite of our Canadian son-in-law Bill) at the St. Pete Times Forum.

Finally, Indian Shores is conveniently located near three airports: Clearwater/St. Pete (PIE - 15 miles), Tampa (TPA - 25 miles) and Orlando (MCO - 110 miles) Airports.

About Karen Sulsberger

We have two grandson's Donovan and Dalton who have become professional sand crab hunters. In the fall of 2013, we added our granddaughter Elin to our family of beach lovers. She made her first visit to Indian Shores and is an official beach bunny!

Karen Sulsberger purchased this condo in 2011

Why Karen Sulsberger chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We have been vacationing along both of Florida's coasts for 20 years. The quiet and friendly atmosphere of Indian Shores is unmatched. We have really enjoyed all of the great restaurants. One of us could even fancy ourselves a food critic of the shore between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach.

What makes this condo unique

The sparkling waters of the Gulf Coast are just as beautiful as the Caribbean beaches we have visited. The view from our condo is fantastic; being on the second floor gives you a closer connection to the beach. The pool at Holiday Villas III is truly unique because it has a great view directly to the ocean. This is a view you won't find at many other properties along the gulf coast.

Great Vacation: Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

My children and I just spent a week in this beautifully renovated condo. The pictures accurately reflect the condition of the condo, just as Karen assured us, which was excellent. The condo has been beautifully updated and they managed to keep that home away from home feel. We found it to be very comfortable, cozy, and clean. The beds were comfortable and it was well stocked. I loved the kitchen, and the walk in tiled shower in the MBR, actually loved everything about it. The only downside was the elevator which at times was slow but being on the second floor made it not so much an issue. Karen was so very easy to work with and responded promptly when a problem with the Internet connection occurred. Minor fix I might add, just unplugged it and restarted it. I would like to thank Karen for sharing her beautiful condo with us and thank her for making the entire rental process worry free and so very easy. Would not hesitate to rent unit 206 again and would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice vacation. Thanks again Karen. ⛱😎🌞👙

Fabulous "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a fabulous, restful vacation in this condo! Everything was just as it was described in the listing. Karen and her husband were wonderful to work with and made sure that everything was just as they said it would be. We have stayed all up and down the coast of Gulf Blvd. for the last 6 years and my husband said that this was his most favorite condo by far! We loved the shade on the balcony as we could still sit out during the heat of the day. We will definitely be back!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful updated condo in a perfect location. My husband loved the private fishing dock. The condo was beautifully decorated and the view from the balcony was post card perfect. We enjoyed every minute and look forward to returning. The beach is gorgeous and the pool refreshing. Also the location was great for restaurants and bus stops. We rode the bus on several occasions to other attractions and restaurants . Karen was extremely easy to contact and work with.

Great Location & Well Maintained

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this condo and were even more satisfied with our stay this time. The location is great...right on the beach and close to restaurants. It's obvious the owners take very good care of the condo and keep it well stocked. All photos are accurate and represent exactly what the condo offers. Karen and her husband were extremely nice and easy to work with. This condo is a real winner!!!
