About Amanda Brightman

Glenn and I lived in the Tampa/St. Pete area before moving to Charlotte, NC. We missed being close to the Gulf and looked for 4 years before finding the perfect condo for our family vacations. In those 4 years it became apparent that the owners of the condos that we rented rarely or never stayed in their condos. For us, one of the best parts of owning a vacation condo is that we can visit it and make it better every time we are there.

We have renovated the condo with a high level of quality and style for your comfort and enjoyment.

Amanda Brightman purchased this condo in 2011

Why Amanda Brightman chose Florida Central West

We visited Indian Shores often when we lived in Florida and when we were looking for a condo we agreed that this was the most beautiful part of the Tampa Bay/St. Pete Gulf Coast. Indian Shores is a quaint beach town with great restaurants, bike/walking lanes and lots and lots of white powdery sand.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo offers fantastic sunsets viewed from our large balcony, the convenience of a full kitchen and ensuite laundry, comfortable new furniture and many extras that enhance our guests' stay. We provide all you need for a relaxing vacation - you provide the bathing suit. Just kick back and listen to the waves while you enjoy the sunset!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been going to the Sandcastle III every couple of years since the kids were very small - and it is one of our favourite spots to vacation when we want a quiet, restful place to stay and unwind. This was our first time ever staying in unit 503 and we must say it was one of, if not the, best. Clean, comfortable, well maintained and obviously a unit that the owners take pride in, and in sharing. We will highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing family time in the sun where you feel comfortable! We definitely plan to be back someday - presuming you will have us.

Love the location, the beach, the condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and tastefully decorated condo! Not only did it have everything we needed for a relaxing family vacation (beach chairs, beach towels, lots of beach toys for the kids, DVDs, well equipped kitchen), but the unit was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Next time we vacation at Indian Shores, I will definitely rent from Amanda again. Thank you, Amanda!

Great place and great hosts.

  • 4 of 5

Positives:

The hosts have thought of everything. They provide: beach chairs, beach towels, plenty of pots and pans, a full sized washer and dryer which is great for staying on top of all the laundry.

The beds and linens are very comfortable

The view is unbelievable and the sunsets are amazing

The beach and water are easily accessible, not crowded, and gorgeous

There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance

Publix is around the corner

Negatives:

The only thing keeping it from being a full five stars is the parking situation. I would have given it a 4.5 if possible but the rating system does not allow for it. The numbers on the spots are hard to see when cars are parked in them and someone was in our spot for the first two days. I had no idea which one it was until they left despite crawling around to find it. Also, only having one reserved spot means that if other guests have more than two cars it is a race to find a spot for your second car and you feel the need to keep it there all week.

The other negative has zero to do with this condo but more the people who were staying there. There was a ton of smokers and you could smell their smoke from the balcony at night.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The condo had everything we needed for a week getaway. The beach and pool were awesome. The kids loved all the beach toys and the board games. The balcony was a great spot to relax and watch the sunsets. We hope to be back!
