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.

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.

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).

Here's my cancellation and reservation policies... 60 days prior to arrival with 100% refund (minus $200 cancellation fee and travel insurance if purchased) and 30 days prior to arrival with 50% refund (minus $200 cancellation fee and travel insurance if purchased) . 25% of the grand total will reserve the condo, accepting all forms of credit cards or Home Away Payments. The balance is due 30 days prior to arrival.

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. Very comfy leather 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!

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, almost all grown up now!!!

Pam Carpentier, owner and manager for 16 years, please call to reserve purchased this condo in 2001

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.

Great location, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 young daughters had a wonderful time at this property. The condo had everything we could've wanted, including beach toys for the kids and beach chairs for us. The pool and Jacuzzi were immaculate and enjoyed just hanging out there when we weren't on the beach or dining at one of the many close by restaurants. We made a day trip to Disney but the rest of the time we just enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and taking in the views, early morning shell hunts on the beach or just being beach bums. Lots to do... or not. Highly recommend this place, and I can't wait to come back.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about this property! It was beautiful! The unit was clean and comfortable. The decor was beautiful with lovely beach themes, not overdone or tacky (like some beach themes can be). The unit really does have everything you could need other than personal items. The kitchen has pretty much any item you can think of. We grilled out one day and couldn't find grilling utensils and I was going to make the suggestion to the owner to add them, then we found them the next day! The balcony has beautiful views! Great place to eat breakfast in the morning and have a drink at night. The closet on the balcony has so many items for the beach-toys, inflatables, chairs, etc. I also loved not having to worry about bringing any towels, sheets, etc. on our trip. All these items were provided as well. The beach is lovely. Lots of great shells to find. The pool and hot tub area are clean. My husband said one of the grills wasn't working during our stay, but the other one was and worked well. We really had a great time! I would happily come back here again! Thank you for the great place!

Sand Castle II Penthouse #2 June 17-24

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in the Sand Castle complex. Each time just seems to get better. Pam (condo owner) was a pleasure to do business with, provided everything we needed for making a good decision for our stay. We had 8 people in the condo for this week and enjoyed the stay very much. Checking in and out was a breeze. The beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped, tv's in every room. We enjoyed the beachfront location, easy access to local restaurants and activities. There is a pool onsite which offers an option other than salt water activities and there are two grills available for cookout poolside. We love this location, the warm gulf waters and tropical views of sunsets.

Amazing condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! We came down from chilly MN with our three children (11,6,3) and my parents. With the three bedrooms there was ample room for everyone! Pam is very organized and responds quickly to any question you might have! From directions to parking passes, all instructions were clearly communicated before we came down. The view from the outdoor deck is breathtaking. We felt so blessed to see it everyday! With 3 kids it was so convenient to be able to have both the beach and pool just steps away. Both were never crowded, no spring breakers to be seen. The condo is gorgeously updated and has everything you could want! Even crayons and coloring books for the kids! We also appreciated the beach toys and beach towels. The fact that is has a stackable washer and dryer was also great. Most vacations I worry about fitting enough enough clothes for the kids in their suitcases. Not an issue when we could easily wash anything on site! 2 bathrooms were very convenient for the amount of people we had staying (7). Indian Shores is a very cute little town! We had Ice Cream across the street, and the kids loved playing mini golf! Clearwater is a short 10 minute drive away for more amenities (parasailing, boat cruises). It was the most relaxing vacation with 3 kids :) we have ever had. We already reserved a week for next spring, we loved it that much! Thanks so much to Pam for sharing such a beautiful, restful place. :)
