About Kathryn Oertel

A native Floridian I am. I lived several years in the Midwest and I can fully appreciate the need to escape from the cold country most anytime between October and April! However, vacationing at the beach is wonderful most anytime. Even during storm season. My favorite time now... I enjoy watching the storms roll in off of the Gulf. There is just something that happens to you as you cross over that bridge to Gulf Blvd. Watch and see!

Kathryn Oertel purchased this condo in 2007

Why Kathryn Oertel chose Florida Central West

It is a special place and just what you need for making memories. Spacious and comfortable with loft ceilings and a contemporary feel to it. Plenty of room to spread out with privacy. The view is my favorite part. Sitting on the balcony looking out over the Intercoastal is peaceful beyond words.

What makes this condo unique

View, location, small complex, no elevator waiting, spacious, clean, Trolley stop outside the door, 2 car parking under unit, comfortable and did I say View?

The owner was very easy to deal with and everything went as we expected. There are a few maintance items that need some attention, but overall we were very happy with the accommodations for the cost.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2weeks with friends visiting us for a few days so needed somewhere to fit everyone in. The property was amazing, it fitted everyone in. The kids loved the loft space, views from the balcony were fantastic. Very clean and well decorated. The beach was just across the road and there was easy access to everything.

Ideal Location and Great Space

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to have selected this location. Amazing - it is not on one of the many toll roads. It was nice to avoid all those stops and fees. And Indian Shores is so far ahead of the pack by only having one lane of traffic running in each direction - the roads all have a pedestrian and bike lanes. The cross walks are respected - and there is one only a short distance from this condo to cross to the ocean. During our stay, activity dropped off in the evening making it quiet and peaceful. We all slept so well. So many places to go and things to do within a short walk or drive. The Seabird Sanctuary was a favorite, as was dinner in John's Pass at the Boardwalk Grill - very simple and served on paper plates but the Grouper was fantastic. Spent one day driving up to Crystal River to swim with the Manatee. I will not forget this vacation!

Loved it, great location and spotless.

  • 5 of 5

this condo was ideal for myself and visitors. I spent a month here and was very comfortable. The master bedroom bed was a dream so comfortable. I had my grandchildren there for 5 nights and hey loved the loft area with 2 full size beds. The location was great with the beach just across the street wih a crosswalk which drivers were very mindfull of.The condo was very roomy and had everything you could possibly need. On arrival we found the unit very clean beds were ready to go which we appreciated after the long drive from Ontario. Anyone we met were extremly friendly. We had no problems so no need to contact Kathy but all neccessary info was well displayed should the need arise. We were travelling with a small dog and really appeciated Kathy allowing thid dropping into JD'S for a bevy and the music. Have already contacted Kathy about a return visit next year

There are many eating places within walking distance or a vey short walk. We enjoye
