Property description

Now is a perfect time to visit the area. Most groups have done the "vacation thing" since school has started. The beach and surrounding areas are even more quiet and relaxing now. Also, the weekly rates are very attractive and never lower. Please give Susan a call to get to know her and to discuss dates/rates/etc. at 727-595-5727, evenings best.

Our low summer time rates, have plummet even more after Labor Day. Sept/Oct/Nov weeks are starting to book. For BEST date selection, may we suggest you book, ASAP. Please, take a look at our rate page or call, 727-595-5727. Also, be SURE you take a look and read as many reviews as possible to see why people want to stay in the PEACH ON THE BEACH.

Presently we are accepting weekly (no more than two weeks) bookings for high season 2016. Again , check our rate page for details and remember that date selection is at it's optimum. Beat the year-end usual price increase and have a better chance of getting the exact dates that YOU want. Kindly remember than it is only Saturday to Saturday in high season and that we DISCOUNT in Jan. In fact, on Sept. 1 we reduced our Jan 2016 rates by $200.00 per week. We should talk about this, don't you agree?

For those interested in coming for multiple weeks in the Fall (3 to 6 weeks) we offer (via the phone) special discounted rates, made to order for you. If the weeks reflect a Sat. to Sat. visit the rate/cost will be lower. SPECIAL RATES for SPECIAL PEOPLE.

This is what makes a PEACH on the BEACH. It is Direct Gulf and Top floor of 5, with CLEAR views up and down the entire BEACH. The Gulf of Mexico, is right out in front of you .It is upscale & CLEAN, with a 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 spectacular. 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, the walk-in closet seems to be greatly appreciated, by many of our visitors.

Summer/Fall seasons are well under way, and we still do have some of the most popular July/August/Sept. weeks open. The post Summer season has started and rates are way down from the Spring Break weeks. 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 available dates. 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.

Home AWAY from Home: Amenities: Free WiFi, local and long distance telephone with HD TV in living room. Ten foot ceilings, Drapes ( not verticals), Phone service, Air conditioning(brand new system), flat screen TV (3), Stereo, Pool (heated in season), Microwave, Dishwasher, Full kitchen, Washer, Dryer, No pets allowed, Linens provided, Cookware and utensils provided, Gas BBQ, Charcoal BBQ, Garage, Heated pool, Glass elevators (2), Hurricane shutters. For 2013 we added free WiFi, along with HD TV in the living room and continued with cable TV in both Bedrooms. Also, we offer FREE telephone service for both local and long distance calling. As a special treat for our Canadian friends we also have free calling to Canada. For 2014, we have added NEW furniture in the Living Room.

We TRY HARD to please our visitors: Please take the time to read our testimonials. After your stay in our VERY upscale Beachfront Condo we would encourage you to add your comments. How do you beat a TOP FLOOR / DIRECT GULF FRONT unit, like this one ??? Yes, a true 'PEACH on the BEACH'.

-- FLASH -- 'Beach with in Reach' and condo is a 'Peach'. --- One of a kind and YOU will love it. Ultra CLEAN and ready for your vacation. We do weekly bookings, generally on a Saturday/Saturday basis.

We are accepting weekly bookings for 2016 and continue to discount bookings for the first four weeks, or any part thereof , in January. Then we are open for most weeks in Feb, March, and April 2016.

-- Top Floor (of 5) and Direct GULF --- with garage --- one of BEST in the building and one of the nicest complexes on the entire beach. Hard to beat !!! What a perfect VIEW !!! Take a peak at our pictures. Check out our calendar and be sure to read all of our five star REVIEWS. Can they all be wrong?

FREE high-speed WiFi, long distance telephone (to all US and Canada) and HD TV in Living room and flat screen cable in both bedrooms. Now in 2015 we have NEW living room furniture for your enjoyment. Also, we have just added a trey ceiling in the kitchen with new LED lighting.

Indian Shores is located on the barrier islands midway between Clearwater Beach to the north and St. Pete Beach to the south. Great restaurants, shopping, and grocery stores are conveniently located within a 5 mile radius of the property. The airports and interstate can be easily reached by crossing the bridge to the mainland, just .02 of a mile north of the condo complex. Explore our open beaches for miles in both directions. The trolley stop is near our parking lot and offers scenic ride for a nominal fee. The condo is recently painted and updated, as our pictures show. Take a look at our testimonials.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Susan and I (Vic) have lived and rented beachfront condos for over 27 years. Susan hails from upstate NY (Cortland) and has lived locally for over 60 years. I grew up and lived in the Chicago/Peoria area coming to Florida 30 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. in 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, is the unobstructed view from the private balcony, directly over the Gulf. Please, take a look at our pictures and you will see the exact Gulf views, of the entire beach. Each yea,r we make improvements in the unit. In 2015, we put in a new tray kitchen ceiling with LED lighting and a new chandelier in the dinning room. Last yea,r 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 room, with free long distance telephone service, including calls to Canada. In the previous year, we put 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 maintained to very high standards, which we hope our visitors will appreciate and enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
If you plan to visit the area, you need someone you can trust, which describes 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 be, 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 not true to the actual unit. 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 happened. If it were to occur, 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 a two way 'faith and trust' on the telephone, 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 feel a bit uncomfortable? It does when we travel. We do ask for a reservation deposit, when you book the condo. 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 can be reached at 727-595-5727.
