"The décor is shabby chic (love it!) but this cottage is anything but shabby!!
Our family surprised our Patriarch with a birthday weekend at this wonderful location and we were all pleasantly surprised.
The location is quiet and the lake view is beautiful. We ate all our meals outside on the upper deck off the master bedroom. Beautiful breezes and gorgeous sunsets were our backdrop.
The bedrooms were spacious and plenty of seating in the living room. Very clean all the way through.
The canoe was well used. Did not use the kayak or paddle boat, but it was nice to have them available.
Inverness is just a hop away, so if you can pull yourself away, there are lots of shops and scenic rides close by.
The lake is large and we saw many airboats, bass boats and jet skis. Only one snag for us. We brought a pontoon (rather large three pontoon) boat. The locals laughed when we pulled up to the public boat ramp. Not only were we too large to launch, the lake was not deep enough for us have done much boating. No worries. We did take a trip to Crystal River and enjoyed the opening season of scalloping.
Delightful. The "Partriarch" said he would love to own this place. And that from an absolute naysayer to second home ownership.
The owners were extremely helpful, especially since we could not talk, but arranged everything by email.
Thank you, thank you for a memorable family experience."

"We were so pleased to find Pam and her rental unit at Sand Castle II. Although frequently visiting Indian Rocks Beach, we found this Indian Shores condo to be situated nicely near all of our favorite places. The pristine beach is quite extraordinary, expansive and has delightfully fine sand. Our hostess considers the needs and comfort of her guests in every way. Linens, dinnerware, and various supplies were ample and so much appreciated. There’s even some useful beach gear. Furnishings have been carefully chosen and are comfortable. The condo’s décor is professional and welcoming. Attentive maintenance and housekeeping are clearly evident. The pool, spa and pool deck area have just been totally refurbished. We will endeavor to book this unit in the future and consider ourselves fortunate to have found it. Thank you Pam Carpentier and good job!
