About Carter Coastal Vacation Rentals
The owners Curtis and his wife Kathy: My grandparent's, Ernest and Leona Delano, bought the place in 1965 and went about converting it into beachfront vacation rentals. I used to come down to Florida and visit them. My father, an air force fighter pilot, went off to Vietnam so I lived here while he was away. I met my wife Kathy at college in Gainesville. We moved to Denver, raise 2 boys and always came back every year to relax in this very special place. In 1996 my grandparents retired and we decided the Sun n Fun was too nice to part with so we bought it to keep it in the family for the next generation to enjoy.
Carter Coastal Vacation Rentals purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Carter Coastal Vacation Rentals chose Indian Shores
As you can see from the photo, good memories are made here. Both our boys are now married and when we can we fly down from Denver and stay a week or two. My oldest son Aaron proposed to his wife on the beach and of course it decided to rain so they came in soaked to the bone. We can go on and on about the fun we have. Always a treat.
What makes this Cottage unique
Location, location , location. My grandparent's chose well. This part of the island is so narrow you can throw a stone from the Gulf and hit the Bay. We get the best of both world's. The sun rises on the boats cruising up and down the channel. And in the evening we get the deepest red sunsets into the Gulf that folks write home about.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Indian Shores Stay
We had the best view of all being on the second floor. The place is old but clean. Couldn't figure out the washer so brought everything home.
I was aware upon staying that the unit would not be updated, however would have been nice if at least the bathroom and bedroom doors would shut all the way. We unfortunately experienced high winds and storms which caused water to leak in three of the windows onto the floor. Would have been nice to have some extra towels as we had to use half of them to block the windows and clean up all the water on the floor. Then we had to wash the towels when we wouldn’t have otherwise used them. It wasn’t terrible but for the price, I would have expected just a little bit better unit conditions.
They did have a quick response, very easy to communicate with and Bruce was very friendly. Loved the outside gazebo and chairs and location to the beach. Was very nice to have the chairs to use as well.
Thank you for your comments. That was quiet a storm.. and my apologies for the leaks. We continue to make improvements to this beach home
The place was very clean. The guy who takes care of the place was great! The light bulb in the shower needed changed and he got right on it. The outside was great to just sit and relax. Will most definitely stay again!!

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Sun n Fun Beachfront Rentals. We do hope to have you back for another beachfront getaway.
See you on the beach !
Great location, sunset and beach views
We stayed in the upstairs back unit. It has a full view of the gulf and amazing sunsets. Very accessible to the beach, just a walk downstair and walk unto your private beach. The unit had access to a BBQ Grill, fire pit outside and kayaks. its felt like "home". We will be booking again for 2019 Christmas. The unit was clean and staff very friendly and accommodating. The kitchen has most of what we needed. A few baking pans, wines and flute glasses would be a great addition.
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our Sun n Fun Beachfront property. We will see you back on the beach soon.
Very relaxing get away!!!
We stayed in unit 4 and enjoyed it very much. The location was wonderful, basically had the beach to ourselves, and we enjoyed sitting out in the lounge chairs in front of the house. The unit was clean and inviting, perfect for just the 2 of us.
If you don't have a car, we recommend purchasing a trolley pass, it stops a block from the house!
Thank you for the thoughtful review of the Sun n Fun property. Glad you enjoyed sitting out at the beachfront location and using the Trolley. We hope to see you again for your next beach getaway.

You will be vacationing on the closest beach to Tampa airport while also secluded from the vacation crowds. We are located in 'The Narrows', so named by the local settlers of the 1920's because the barrier island is so skinny here that there is only room for a single row of homes. The emerald green waters of the Gulf are out your front door and and yachts cruising the channel are out your back door. Water surrounds you like no where else with fantastic tropical views and a true island feeling. Our many repeat guests tell us that this is the most coveted spot on the 12 miles of world class beaches between Clearwater and St Petersburg.
