Overview

Indian Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Tommy Bahama style, three bedroom, two bath, vacation, penthouse condominium. It directly overlooks the glistening Gulf of Mexico and sparkling white, sandy beach of Indian Shores. The penthouse was professionally redecorated and upgraded. ***PLEASE EMAIL ME BEFORE CALLING, SINCE I'M STILL RAISING A FAMILY... I PROMISE TO GET RIGHT BACK WITH YOU.***

When you send me an email, VRBO/Homeaway will respond with a negative statement: How to Pay Safely

This owner doesn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout. You won't be eligible for our Book with Confidence Guarantee. --- This is implying that although I've been managing my own condos since 2001 and have had them listed with VRBO, since 2002, and have been using my own comprehensive reservation system and Bank of America Merchant Services Credit Card Processing long before Vacation Rental By Owner started forcing their owners and now many management companies (not owners) to use their Merchant Services to make more money for themselves just 2 - 3 years ago, that your reservation is not safe with me. Well it is very safe. It is much easier for you to get your money back through your credit card company than it is for VRBO to hold on to it and stick you in another condo or hotel that is not of your choice and this is if something goes wrong. I have heard stories of double bookings and how does VRBO guarantee that they can find you another one at the last minute better than you can, especially when all of the beaches are completely sold out! Wouldn't you rather get your money back from your bank yourself and have the freedom to find your own place at the last minute? If you google my name, you will see 2 decades of happy customers with no complaints. I don't appreciate the negative connotations that my potential guests receive just because I don't use their merchant services and I spend over $5,000 a year, advertising with VRBO/Home Away!

The penthouse is located on the top, tenth 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. ** Be sure to link to New Virtual Tour! **

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 two barbecue grills and a charcoal grill with tables for pool-side fun.

Over-size beach front balcony seats up to nine for entertaining and breathtaking views.

Master bedroom has brand-new, tropical island-style furniture with luxurious king-size bed, en suite bathroom, ceiling fan, opens to beachfront balcony. Second bedroom has two plush queen size beds with TV/DVD with panoramic views of intercoastal waterways. Third bedroom has new furniture with two twin size beds and TV/DVD also overlooking the intercoastal waterways. Brand-new, leather, queen-size, sleeper sofa, over-size rattan chairs, and ceiling fan in living room opens to beachfront balcony. There are ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms too!

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 breath taking 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. Your home by the sea is beautiful and we were very lucky to stay in your home.' Mike, Jan, Keirstin, Liz & Michael

About Pam Carpentier

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 purchased this condo in 2001

Why Pam Carpentier 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.

Fun at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sand Castle II was amazing. The location is excellent and the amenities of the condo are top notch. We had one issue with the garbage disposal on the day we arrived but I called Pam and she has this taken care of within an hour (thanks Pam!). I would definitely recommend this condo to everyone.

Beautiful views , beds were very comfortable , very accommodating for our family of 6 . The kids absolutely loved it . Kitchen was well stocked , the poolside gas grills outside are a nice touch ! I would definitely recommend this condo & we will definitely be staying again !

Only issue we had , was there were some elevator issues , but that's no fault of the condo !

our Favorite

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many condos along gulf blvd and this was our favorite! The view was amazing and we loved being on the top floor! The beds were very comfy and the linens and towels were top quality. We also liked the private balcony and beach chairs and towels. The keyless entry was great and the whole process was so easy when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked and grocery store was nearby . We will definitely return to this condo and highly recommend!

Awesome vacation find.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo and found it exactly as advertised. We settled right in and felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My wife is a bit particular and she was so pleased within moments of our arrival. We spent each day on the beach thanks to the beach chairs and towels provided by Pam. That was a bonus. We loved the master suite, the bed super comfortable and quality linens were a plus. Our guests were also very comfortable. Although we did not need a thing, we found Pam to be very attentive and responded to our questions within minutes. We also loved the local restaurants and shops and we met a lot of friendly/fun people. What a great area to visit. We will soon be planning our week for next year.

After Disney week

  • 5 of 5

This place was GREAT!!! we needed a vacation from our Disney vacation and his condo was perfect since we flew in. The condo was stocked with beach chair, toys for the kids and even beach towels. all amenities (towels, linens etc) were high end. Location was great and the restaurant across the street was awesome. Would definitely return in future!
