Holiday Villas III condo description
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.

Our family had a great time at this location. It had a great ocean view. The condo has been recently remodeled and feels like it's brand new. The kitchen is awesome with its stainless appliances and granite countertop. The large TV with cable was a hit with the boys during the evening. The upgraded wifi works great now. The washer/dryer units are just around the corner and we had no problem using them. There are lots of cool things in the closet on the patio. We left a couple of crabbing nets too. :) Overall, this is the best/nicest place we have stayed at in the area...hands down. Karen is great to work with as well.

We enjoyed our stay at Indian Shores Holiday Villas III. The condo was beautiful, clean, and spacious. The pool was nice and access to the beach was excellent. The office employees were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. We were very close to several restaurants and sights. The only negative was not having a washer/dryer in the unit. There was only one on each floor and we had a difficult time getting to use it. Overall, we had a fantastic trip and we look forward to staying in this same condo again.

This condo was great! Owners great to work with and deposit returned quickly. It is exactly as described and pictures are accurate. The office folks are nice,everyone around seemed friendly. Location is wonderful,fishing on the pier was fantastic! Sad we didn't discover Johns Pass until our last night,its just to the left of Bubba Gump's about 10-15 min from condo.If we return to this area this condo is where we will stay! Thanks Karen & Dick!

This was our first visit to Florida. A friend recommended this area, and we are so glad we found your condo! The condo is so nicely done! Very comfortable and it is beautiful! It had everything we needed to have a great vacation! The kitchen was great, with all the pots, pans, serving pieces we needed to make some great meals! We loved being right on the beach! Perfect to just walk a few steps to be on sand! Our kids loved the pool! We had such a wonderful time in your condo! We ave our calendars out ready to book it again! Thanks for helping us to make some wonderful memories!

My husband & I visit Indian Shores area about every three months from St. Aug.. When we suggested to our best friends from Indiana, to fly in for a long weekend to our "Paradise", Kim, (my BFF since early grade school) went to work and found this condo. It was perfect, great location with conviencence to everything one could want or need. The condo was beautiful and wonderfully decorated. We enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave. I will definitely return and recommend to friends. Owners communicated with us consistently. Thank you for having a beautiful condo!

My husband and I flew to Clearwater and stayed at the Oceanfront Paradise a whole week. As soon as we walked into the condo we felt right at home. The condo is beautiful, very clean and has everything you need while you are there, except for your food of course. The beds are so comfortable and every room is tastefully decorated and spacious. We especially enjoyed the sunsets from the balcony in the evenings. The beach is so beautiful from the second floor condo. We didn't want to come home. Weather was perfect. Great restaurants to eat at everywhere up and down the boulevard. We plan on going again. We can't wait.

Thanks for the delightful stay in your condo. Your description of the location was exact and the condo perfect for peace and relaxation. All had a great time. While your pictures of the place are beautiful, your remodeling work seen in person is more gorgeous and the ocean view is stunning. The pool was wonderfully heated and even enjoyed a swim on some cool nights! The laundry facility in the hall concerned us but was never an issue as it was always free when needed. The extra bath and beach towels were much appreciated as well as all the little extras in the kitchen. We even grilled oceanside! Anyone who books your place is in for a treat!

What a great place! The condo is beautiful and so nicely decorated and clean. We walked into the condo when we first arrived and my husband looked out to the beach from the balcony, turned and looked at me with a BIG smile and gave me the thumbs up!! EVERYTHING really is perfect. We needed only to go to the grocery; everything one could need is here. The facility laundry was only a few steps outside our door as was the trash chute; which I liked. Too bad I don't have one at home! Beds are Very nice and comfy. I wish I could have snuck the kitchen and the master shower into my bags. The beach and pool are great as well. I've always liked to eat at Salt Rock Grill, but didn't this time. We had dinner twice at Marlin Darlin...Great place! Specialty martinis were very good as well. Have taken the trolley to John's Pass for dinner. Would definitely return to this condo. Thanks to Karen and Dick for allowing us to spend time in their great vacation home (you, too, Abby!).

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.
