Indian Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bath Vacation Condominium for rent. It directly overlooks the glistening Gulf of Mexico and sparkling white, sandy beach of Indian Shores, bordering Indian Rocks Beach. The Condo is professionally redecorated and upgraded every year with all new Island-Style furnishings and brand new granite kitchen with stainless steel appliances. New bathrooms too! Very Upscale! ***PLEASE EMAIL ME BEFORE CALLING, SINCE I NEED TIME TO RESPOND AND I'M REALLY THE OWNER AND MANAGE MY OWN CONDOS. I PROMISE TO GET RIGHT BACK WITH YOU.***

I've been managing my own condos since 2001 and listed my first one with VRBO that same year. I have been using my own comprehensive reservation system and Bank of America Merchant Services Credit Card Processing. Please email me first to give me time to answer, since I am an owner and do my own management (and feel I do a better job that way). To reserve, I will call you after you have time to read my comprehensive response email, not the VRBO/HomeAway auto response), or you can call me at your convenience to reserve over the phone with your credit/debit card. 727-480-3000. I have a very fair cancellation policy... 45 days prior to arrival with $100 cancellation fee.

This Unit is located on the 4th floor of the popular Sand Castle II Condominiums. The Master bedroom and living room share an extra-large balcony directly overlooking the beach with breathtaking panoramic views; perfect for enjoying our brilliant sunsets.

The quiet, wide beach offers sparkling, white sand loaded with undiscovered seashells and relaxing cabanas. The heated swimming pool and whirlpool/spa stays warm all year long. There are 2 BBQ grills with tables for pool-side fun. On the beach, there are comfy beach chairs with either summer-time umbrellas or spring-time cabanas for rent. There are beach chairs, rafts, and toys available to take down to the beach, too!

Oversize balcony seats up to 7 guests for entertaining and breathtaking views. Be sure to check out the Virtual Tour on the Website link!

Tommy Bahama style reclining sofa, reclining love seat, in living room opens to the beachfront balcony. There is WIFI high speed internet access for your laptop. The Master bedroom has brand-new, tropical island-style furniture with a luxurious King-size bed with plush mattress, TV/DVD, remodeled bathroom with shower, and ceiling fan, which opens to the beachfront balcony.

The Gorgeous 2nd bedroom has all new furniture too with King and Twin sized beds with a TV/DVD/VCR with Nintendo hook-ups. The 3rd bedroom has new furniture with a Queen-sized bed and TV overlooking the intercoastal waterways. All of the rooms have ceiling fans.

Kudos from recent guests:

'Thank you for letting us use your wonderful home. It was just what we were looking for...close to a relaxing beach, but not too far from everything else. We had a great time and could not have asked for anything else.' Janet, Vincent, Rosemarie, Nathan, Stephanie, Natalie, and Grandma Janet

'Our entire family is here from Wisconsin and it is our second time back here to Indian Shores. The house is beautiful, very nicely furnished - the palm tree is a very nice touch! We thank you for opening your home up to others to share the beauty, not just of the home, but of the entire experience - the view from the balcony is breathtaking itself - where you are up here looking out over the water, either at people on the beach, jet skiing - or the sunset. It all just leaves an imprint in your thoughts and memories. We were even able to sit on the comforts of our own balcony and watch all the spectacular fireworks up and down the beach - and the best part - No Crowds! It was awesome. Thanks again for a truly memorable vacation for all to remember for a long time, or at least until next year.' Dan, Barb, Keven, Kim John, Karla, Tony, and Sarah

'I have been coming to Sand Castle since I was 8 years old. Every trip has had a special memory with my family. This trip is especially memorable because we have come with our daughter and she had a wonderful holiday. She loved playing in the sand and finding shells, and watching the pelicans and boats from the balcony. Y our home by the sea is beautiful and we were very lucky to stay in your home.' Mike, Jan, Keirstin, Liz & Michael

About Pam Carpentier, owner and manager for 16 years, please call to reserve

I live in the Tampa Bay Beaches area since 1960 and enjoy renting out my condos to vacationers. I have 2 kids in school.

Pam Carpentier, owner and manager for 16 years, please call to reserve purchased this condo in 2006

Why Pam Carpentier, owner and manager for 16 years, please call to reserve chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I grew up in this area and have spent most of my life here. I have done a lot of traveling and think that our beaches combined with the Tampa Bay area have much to offer anyone.

What makes this condo unique

I love to relax on my balcony in the mornings with my coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The beach is never crowded, however the selection of great restaurants are endless. There are also great boating opportunities. My kids love the pool and beach and never get tired of coming.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great Ocean Front beach condo to enjoy with family

- close walk to the beach

- very clean condo

- great views

- beautiful clean pool

-many restaurants to eat from

- high end upgraded condo

We have very high expectations and Pam meets them all. Condo is very nicely updated and high end. The pictures from the condo is what you get and has very close access to the beach and pool which is nice for younger kids. Pam got back to us with all the questions we asked almost immediately and was very helpful to make our stay wonderful. My son also lost his favorite snoopy doll that was recovered and will be sent back to us. Overall, my family and I look forward to making memories each and every year here.

Two week family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! It was better than we could have hoped for. Pam has thought of everthing. From the fully stocked kitchen, to the beach towels. She has every detail covered. The condo was very clean and spacious for our group of 7. We loved the swimming pool and it was cleaned every single morning!!

The view of the Gulf is beautiful from the balcony. We spent every morning drinking coffee and planning our day and in the evenings we had beautiful sunsets.

Two wonderful weeks of 80 and sunny...

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo. It was spacious, very clean, and a perfect location. The pool area is spotless and maintained every day. We rented this condo because it had a pool and hot tub. We spent most of the time in the pool, but ventured out to the beach as well. The gas grill outside was easy to use. Unit was clean, pretty, and spotless. It took some time getting use to how the washer (laundry) worked.

Beyond Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to find Pam and her rental unit at Sand Castle II. Although frequently visiting Indian Rocks Beach, we found this Indian Shores condo to be situated nicely near all of our favorite places. The pristine beach is quite extraordinary, expansive and has delightfully fine sand. Our hostess considers the needs and comfort of her guests in every way. Linens, dinnerware, and various supplies were ample and so much appreciated. There’s even some useful beach gear. Furnishings have been carefully chosen and are comfortable. The condo’s décor is professional and welcoming. Attentive maintenance and housekeeping are clearly evident. The pool, spa and pool deck area have just been totally refurbished. We will endeavor to book this unit in the future and consider ourselves fortunate to have found it. Thank you Pam Carpentier and good job!
