About the property

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.

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 Time Had By All

  • 4 of 5

Condo worked perfectly for our ladies trip for 4. Lots of space, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and gorgeous views. Convenient location, quiet beach and wonderful pool for windy days. We rented cabanas for the whole week and they were great (we got the information at the office). When sitting on the balcony, the A/C unit is very loud when it is running. Karen was responsive and easy to work with, she answered all of questions quickly. If we need a similar place again, we would come back to this great spot. Would highly recommend.

Perfect getaway for families!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our spring break trip to Indian Shores. Our family stayed in this wonderful Holiday Villas III unit for one week. We had everything we needed, plus an incredible view of the ocean. The condo was exactly as advertised, if not better. The owners were helpful and quick to reply to all of our questions. We would come back in a heartbeat.

Great location with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 3/4-3/11 with my wife, our baby and my in-laws. There was plenty of room for everyone. The condo is very nice and clean. We really loved the views from the balcony and the location to all the restaurants. We walked to local places quite often. The owners were very easy to work with and communicated well.

The building has an elevator and also luggage carts/shopping carts that you can use to unload your car. We found that extraordinary helpful.

Overall, it was a great stay and we would definitely rent here again!

Perfect getaway for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a one-week stay at this location in Indian Shores and couldn't be happier! We were so sad to leave. My husband and I with our two children (4 and 19 months) felt right at home here. The condo is beautifully updated and is decorated beautifully with the perfect beach house feel. Most important - the view! It is breathtaking. The proximity of the condo to the beach is rare and was so much enjoyed, especially because the beach itself is pristine.

The condo provides everything you could need including beach toys, chairs, and towels. Unfortunately, we had several cold days but were able to put the chairs, shovels, and buckets to use for a few days. Luckily, the pool is heated so even if the temps are cool the pool is an awesome alternative - especially for die hard kids!

The owners were easy to work with and even accommodated us with a booster seat and playpen for my daughter to sleep in! We loved this location making our vacation that much better. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place - we might even book again!

You won't be disappointed!
