Our family has created many wonderful memories in our Gulf Front condo. We first fell in love with the views from this 2nd story condo and decided to completely renovate the unit. The 12 ft sliding glass door provides a spectacular view of the ocean that you can enjoy from sunrise to sunset. The rear of the unit faces the intercoastal waterway, which allows you to also have a peek at the intercoastal from your bedroom.
The luxurious top to bottom renovation of our spacious two bedroom, two bathroom unit was recently completed. The upgrades are endless, all countertops are granite, stainless steel appliances, NEW furniture and 18' porcelain tile throughout, and the bedrooms and living areas have been equip with ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, en suite bathroom with a walk in shower and 32' cable TV. The second bedroom has plush queen and full sized beds and a 32' cable TV. The second bathroom is equip with double sinks and a bathtub/shower combination. The spacious living room is setup for entertaining and has a 50' cable TV with DVD player. The oversized 17 ft balcony is perfect for outdoor dining or relaxing.
Holiday Villas III is a resort with a year round heated oceanfront swimming pool. The view from the pool is virtually unobstructed and steps to the white sandy beach. It is truly the best on the beach. If you chose our condo, we will also give you access to our beach chairs, beach toys, rafts, boogie boards or any other item in our patio closet. The resort includes: charcoal BBQ grills, tiki huts for family gatherings, beach volleyball, shuffleboard, off street reserved and guest parking, and last but certainly not least a PRIVATE FISHING PIER and a day dock for boats.
The Disney theme parks in Orlando or the Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa are a perfect day trip activity from Holiday Villas III. Our Grandson Donovan's personal favorite is the local star, Winter, at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The Indian Shore community offers fishing, golf courses, and water sports. If you are a sports enthusiast, you can catch a football game at Raymond James Stadium, baseball game at Tropicana Field or a hockey game (a favorite of our Canadian son-in-law Bill) at the St. Pete Times Forum.
Finally, Indian Shores is conveniently located near three airports: Clearwater/St. Pete (PIE - 15 miles), Tampa (TPA - 25 miles) and Orlando (MCO - 110 miles) Airports.

About the owner: My husband, Dick, and I live in Woodsfield, Ohio along with our two sons, Louie and Ryan. Our Daughter Abby and her family currently live in Columbus, OH. Go Bucks! We have two grandson's Donovan and Dalton who have become professional sand crab hunters. In the fall of 2013, we added our granddaughter Elin to our family of beach lovers. She made her first visit to Indian Shores and is an official beach bunny!
Why the Owner Chose Holiday Villas III: We have been vacationing along both of Florida's coasts for 20 years. The quiet and friendly atmosphere of Indian Shores is unmatched. We have really enjoyed all of the great restaurants. One of us could even fancy ourselves a food critic of the shore between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The sparkling waters of the Gulf Coast are just as beautiful as the Caribbean beaches we have visited. The view from our condo is fantastic; being on the second floor gives you a closer connection to the beach. The pool at Holiday Villas III is truly unique because it has a great view directly to the ocean. This is a view you won't find at many other properties along the gulf coast.
