Beach Palms (formerly Beach Cottages III) condo description

This is what makes a 'PEACH on the BEACH'. Direct Gulf and Top floor.with CLEAR views up and down the entire BEACH. The Gulf of Mexico, is right out in front of you. Upscale & CLEAN, with garage. We have just finished putting in a new tray ceiling in the kitchen and added LED lighting. At the same time we replaced our dining room chandelier and the results are even more light than before and when added to the normal beach front natural light makes for a special feeling of comfort, etc. Also, we have added new micro-fiber furniture in the living room, including a very comfortable chaise lounge. Visitors rave about how comfortable our king sized bed is in the master bedroom. Also, that walk-in closet seems to be greatly appreciated by many of our visitors.

Winter season is well under way, and we still do have some of the most popular March/April weeks open. While the winter season has started and is well under way we do suggest booking ASAP to get your desired Holiday week or weeks. Kindly give us a call and we can talk about your needs and wants and see if they match our needs and wants. Further, please check out our calendar/rates/reviews. for details. We are VERY proud of our reviews and how CLEAN are unit is kept. You will be too!!!

Flash !!! This condo is right out there and you will love that DIRECT Gulf of Mexico' top' view in all directions. You will find this condo CLEAN, as we do it ourselves. This is a VERY important point and overlooked by many first time visitors.

Our Beach Palms penthouse condo is located in/on the barrier island town of Indian Shores, FL. with Clearwater Beach to the North and St Pete Beach to the South. This CLEAN and nicely DECORATED condo offers two bedrooms with a king in the master and twins in the second and is located in a five story (top-floor) mid-rise upscale building DIRECTLY on the BEACH with glass elevators, pool(heated), garage and, as you might guess, fantastic views and sunsets.

Beach Palms until recently was known as Beach Cottage III with a reputation for being one of the very best WEEKLY rental buildings in the area. Look up and down the white sandy beach from the living room balcony and listen to the waves. You can almost TOUCH the water. Yes, this is your Florida dream vacation hideaway! The condo is decorator furnished, immaculate, and has a fully-equipped kitchen with a washer/dryer.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Susan and I (Vic) have lived and rented beachfront condos for over 25 years. Susan hails from upstate NY (Cortland) and has lived locally for over 50 years. I grew up and lived in the Chicago/Peoria area coming to Florida 28 years ago. This is when I was lucky enough to have met and married Susan. She graduated from the Univ. of South Florida and I received my degree from Bradley Univ. (Peoria, IL.). Susan is a 30 year retired Pinellas County teacher (K) and very proud of it. Finally, I convinced her to join me in retirement. Enough about us ----- what about you and yours?

              Why the Owner Chose Beach Palms (formerly Beach Cottages III):
              Susan has the patience and knowledge to help anyone intending to visit this area. We have put our hearts and souls into making our direct beachfront condo one of the BEST on the beach. Add to that the direct, top floor location and you have a winner for your holiday. Worried about you car? Then you will love our garage. How many condos offer you a garage? Best of all, however; is the unobstructed view from the private balcony, out to the Gulf. Please, take a look at our pictures and you will also see the exact Gulf views of the entire beach. Each year we put back into the unit. In 2014 we put in a new tray kitchen ceiling with LED lighting and a new chandelier in the dinning room. Last year it was new micro-fiber living room furniture, including a chaise lounge, and the year before that we added free WiFi and HD TV in the living with free long distance telephone service, including calls to Canada. And the year before that we put in new tile in the entry hallways, kitchen and both bathrooms. The list goes on and on, but we hope you get the idea? This place is kept up to very high standards which we hope our visitors will enjoy each and every up-grade.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              If you plan to visit the area, you need someone you can trust. That just discribed us. Tired of dealing with fast talking, rude, only interested in getting your booking people? That is NOT us. We like the old fashioned telephone, so that we can describe everything in full and to your complete satisfaction. We have been as honest as we possibly can with our pictures. We see pictures on the internet that are taken at the best possible angles, that represent views that the complex offers, that make no sence what-so-ever. We just shake our heads and feel sorry for the folks who get fooled' by such half truths. This is one reason we meet and greet our visitors in person. We view the grounds together and walk into the unit with you. Someone not happy? This has yet to happen. If it were to happen, we would talk about it 'on the spot' and work it out. Finally, since we meet and greet all of our visitors, we provide the keys, so you do not need to drive up and down the beach (or fool with a lock box) to get keys. No doubt, flying or driving you will be tired and who needs to look for the whereabouts of the keys? Finally, since we have built two way 'faith and trust' with you on the telephone, so we have NO need to ask you to pay in advance. Payment is upon arrival. Many operations (most, if not all) ask you to pay in advance. Doesn't that make you a bit uncomfortable? It does when we travel. We do ask for a reservation deposit when you book your reservation This assures us that you are indeed coming and makes us feel better about turning others away for the dates you have reserved. We await your phone call and look forward to it. Evenings are best for us and we be reached at 727-595-5727.
