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.

Clean, Neat and Very Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave. We had family and friends visit us and they loved it as well. This place is great but the best part it is in the heart of everything you want to do and everything you want to eat. (2.5 miles North or South was the most we traveled) The place was recently renovated and the workmanship is wonder. The Kitchen is a focal point even if your just making coffee.

Great beach and the Sunsets..........Fantastic. After one day we said, "We could live here" The place was clean when we arrived and it had everything. Pots, Pans, Beach Chairs, Towels. You name it, it had it. Nice furniture and again, cozy! We are coming back!!

Our Favorite Place Now!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 8/12-19 and had high expectations for the place after having spent a long time getting to it. We were not disappointed! Everything was beautifully appointed and the owners added plenty of special touches we've not seen at other places we've stayed (tea, coffee, condiments, games, videos, beach accessories, beach towels). The condo was very clean and spacious for our large crew. The location was perfect; we were close to everything. Also, the views from the balcony were absolutely amazing! And, to top it off, we practically had the entire beach to ourselves. Apparently, mid-August is the perfect time to go there as the kids are back in school and the tourist season is winding down. I highly recommend this condo!

We enjoyed this newly renovated condo...the condo is beautiful and love the location.

  • 5 of 5

Our week spent in this condo was very relaxing with beautiful views and convenient location to great restaurants and attractions. The Pub across the street had great food and service with beautiful water views. We returned to Crabby Bill's for another delicious meal. The cooler, beach chairs, umbrellas and other beach necessities were greatly appreciated. Amanda was easy to communicate with and smooth booking process.

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!
