About Bruce Carter
Here is just a quick overview of my career along with a few of Carter Vacation strengths in the rental industry. I have been involved in the hospitality field most of my life. After graduating from Boston University back in 1986 I got my start working as a night auditor in a small hotel in Boston. I was instantly fascinated with this industry and wanted to know everything about it. I enjoyed finding new ways to improve the overall experience for the guests and in doing so, I was promoted often. I learned all aspects of each department and through the years I became the General Manager of some well-known hotels and upscale boutique inns. During my corporate career as a General Manager of a Hyatt Hotel in Tampa Florida, I had an opportunity to manage a small beach vacation rental along the shores of the Gulf. Simply put…I was hooked. This became my new passion and career. My wife and I had stayed in vacation rentals in the past with mixed feelings about our stays, I knew there was room for improvement in the Vacation Rental business and I was excited to get started. My team and I have worked hard over the years and I feel our success at Carter Coastal Vacation Rentals is from having a variety of vacation property options that suits each guests needs and budget. We also have chosen to keep Carter Vacation Rental business relatively small in order to maintain a personable connection with each of our new arrivals. I, along with my team understand the importance of anticipating the guest's needs as well as treating each guest with complete respect during their vacation getaway. We take great pride in serving you. We are here for you. So choose one of our properties and soon you will be enjoying a "little slice of paradise" on the beautiful barrier island.

Why Bruce Carter chose Indian Shores
The Gulf of Mexico and your own private white sand beach is right out your door. Wade out to the shallow sand bar to explore for shells and sand dollars, or walk across the street to watch the yachts go by and fish in the bay. Old Timers call this part of the island "The Narrows" where the sand is just wide enough for a single row of homes. You are surrounded by beauty. Beach behind you, Bay in front of you ....It doesn't get much better than this!
What makes this Cottage unique
Perfect beach location with water bay views. Ideal for a family vacation or for a Romantic getaway for 2. Step out the back door and stroll the white sand beach. Fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms 2 full baths and a large living area. You can watch the sunset into the Gulf of Mexico every day from this beach cottage. Enjoy old Florida.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.

Loved this house! Located just a very short walk to the Gulf of Mexico and is located close to everything you will ever need! The owners are very nice and quick to respond to any emailed questions/concerns. The house was immaculate and my party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our time here! We would definitely rent this one again!
Thanks for taking the time to review our beach Cottage. Glad you enjoyed the location and the Cottage. We Look forward to having you stay at any one of our beach properties again.

Second time here
As we remembered- a small, charming beach house. Well equipped and well maintained. It fits the bill for us. Nice restaurants and bars within walking distance, and a quiet beach area to enjoy the sunsets. Way to go Carter Coastal!
Sweet cottage by the sea
We enjoyed this cottage. Location is perfect to the area and beach. Vintage cottage with modern amenities. Quiet and secluded nestled behind the dunes. Short walk to ocean. Internet is good should you need to work. Patio is a gem ate every meal here. Sat here nightly after returning from the sunset. Beach chairs and umbrellas provided. All you need the cottage provided including ample beach towels. Very pleased with our week at Pelican Cottage.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Pelican cottage. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. It really is a special location, and the quick walk to the beach is great! Glad you were able to use the beach supplies, and use of the patio. We hope you will consider staying with us again on your next beach getaway.

Great weekend getaway!
Cute Beach House! The house was located in a great area. The beach was located behind the house and the bay was located right in front of the house. The house was perfect for a weekend getaway with my husband. The house would be great for a small family or couple to stay in. There were two bedrooms that were about the same size and they shared a bathroom. There was also another bathroom in the back of the house with a shower, which was convenient. The kitchen was spacious and nice, with basic necessities (plates, bowls, silverware, pots, pans, cooking utensils). There were 4 towels & washcloths, along with a roll of paper towels and toilet paper in each bathroom. Even though there isn't an ocean view from the house, the beach was literally steps behind the house. Beautiful, nice beach & town with restaurants and plenty to do and Clearwater close by.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review for the Pelican Cottage. We are always eager to hear what our guests enjoyed most. So glad you appreciated the close proximity to the beach...hopefully you viewed some amazing sunsets. We hope you will consider visiting us again at the Pelican, or any of our beach properties.
Thank you for choosing Carter Vacation Rentals-
Cute little cottage, great location, has potential
Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel our trip to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico, so this was a last minute rental. The owners were quick to respond and very accommodating to our schedule. While we enjoyed our stay for the week, nothing could stand up to the all-inclusive we had in mind. That being said, there were just a few things that would have been helpful. There were dish towels to dry dishes, but no dish clothes to wash, so we used a wash cloth. There were only 3 wash clothes to begin with, so we were down to 2 between the 4 of us. An oven mitt would have been helpful. I didn't bring a hairdryer since it was listed as an amenity, but there was no hairdryer. I was glad to see that there were beach towels, 2 beach chairs and umbrellas for us to use, although a few more beach chairs would have been nice. A cooler available to use would also have been very helpful. The bathroom closet door was off and leaning against the wall (not a big deal, just looked run-down). Like I said, nothing would compare to what he had originally planned, so the little things (like having to actually cook) were more disappointing than they should have been.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Pelican Cottage. We appreciate knowing what our guests enjoyed, as well as what may have disappointed them. We will certainly address stocking the property appropriately with our housekeeping staff...and replacing lost items i.e. hair dryer. We hope you will consider visiting us again for a relaxing beach getaway (minus cooking) Visit our website for a complete list of properties.
Hope to see ya on the beach

Great proximity to the beach
This modest cottage served our family pretty well over the weekend for a little beach getaway. It was a very short walk to the beach with only one house between it and the beach-no crossing the street required! It is located right on Gulf Blvd, so it could be a little noisy with traffic at times. It wasn't stocked as well as other homes I have rented through HomeAway or VRBO. My family of 4 was provided with 4 bath towels and 2 wash rags for a 3 night stay. Good thing I was constantly doing laundry so we managed. It would have also been nice to have some slotted spoons for cooking, too. The bedroom with the king sized bed does not have a TV. My husband is a carpenter and could pick out several things that should be fixed. Regardless, it was a roof over our heads for the weekend and we spent most of our time in the gulf. It was much better than staying in a hotel.
Much appreciation for your kind review of the Pelican cottage property. We are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on what could be improved...extra towels etc. We are always trying to improve our guest's satisfaction. We hope you will consider staying with us again, at this property or any of the beach homes we offer.
