About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We offer a Gulf-view condo perfect for a romantic getaway or family fun in the sun.

This is not your ordinary vacation rental property. A short trip across Tampa Bay from the Tampa International Airport, our vacation home has been completely remodeled and, being on the second floor, offers extraordinary views of dolphins swimming off of the beach and the most amazing sunsets anywhere.

You can bring your boat! We have access to a private dock located on the Intercoastal Waterway side of Holiday Villas III, giving you a different and beautiful way to see this part of Florida. You can swim in the beach side heated pool, head for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico, or fish from the private fishing pier.

Our vacation home is a refuge year round on one of Florida’s most beautiful barrier islands. Life here includes celebrated shopping, lots of fine dining, nearby towns such as John’s Pass Village, Clearwater Beach, St. Petersburg Beach, and Tarpon Springs, and cities like Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg. A 45-minute drive takes you to Busch Gardens, and a 90-minute drive will get you to Orlando/Disney. The Tampa area is home to professional football, baseball and hockey. The area is peppered with art galleries and museums, numerous golf courses, and several full service marinas which offer some of the best fishing in Florida.

Check our calendar for availability or contact us by e-mail.

Favorite features of our property include an open floor plan, remodeled kitchen, and bath rooms. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy Gulf living. The living room features stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. An open kitchen provides a great way to converse with guests while preparing meals. The master suite has a full bath, and the second bathroom serves the second bedroom and your guests.

Come visit the beauty of the Gulf. You will be glad you did.

About Orlando Calvo

We are Pedro and Isabel Vasallo, and have owned this condo since 2001. We have watched our four kids, along with their families and eleven grandchildren, flourish and grow up here on the beach. Our grandchildren have now grown up and will be bringing their own children one day to enjoy this wonderful paradise.

Orlando Calvo purchased this condo in 2001

Why Orlando Calvo chose Indian Shores

We have lived in the Tampa Bay Area since 1969 and have always loved the beach. The area is full of shopping, sporting activities, and family oriented things to do. What more can you ask for.

What makes this condo unique

Holiday Villas III has a beachfront pool, boat docking on the Intercoastal Waterway, and a private fishing dock, as well as pristine white sand beach, beautiful blue water, and the best sunsets anywhere. Many of Florida’s best attractions are within easy driving distance.

Great condo!

Condo had everything we needed! View was perfect. Ocean front pool was a great temp and we enjoyed playing shuffleboard while grilling out in the evenings. Owners of the condo were so easy to work with!

Great value with a view.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Isabel's Beach Paradise. The condo was very clean and well appointed (Kitchen utensils, pots and pans, beach toys, towels, linens, etc). The beds were also very comfortable and the unit has a very good view of the ocean. We also liked the open floor plan that was not a long rectangle, but an open flowing design with the kitchen, dining room, family room, and balcony.

The condo itself was rather quite, which enjoyed, but most of all was the value the condo represented. We did a lot of searching in this area and you really get the most bang for your buck with this place. The Owner and operators are very quick to respond, but I dont believe we had reason to reach out to them while on our stay.

Don't hesitate and here's why...

  • 5 of 5

Here's what is perfect about Isabel's Beach Paradise; the location (quiet location but minutes drive to all the craziness if that's what you want), beautifully renovated unit overlooking the ocean with afternoon sun pouring in to refresh your soul. Full amenities from towels to spices to cleaning supplies. W/D 10 steps out the front door. Garbage chute around the corner, volleyball steps away as well as pool right out the back, owners great to deal with, quick and honest responses, fast refund of security deposit - A+ all the way.

This unit was spectacular! Very comfortable, just like home. The kitchen was supplied with everything we needed. Beach towels and beach supplies, such as toys, football, etc, were provided. We were greeted with a special treat from Orlando upon arrival which was such a pleasant surprise. This has been by far the best condo we have rented so far! We plan to travel to Florida next year, and hopefully this condo will be available. Our family loved it!

Vary happy

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed our week stay immensely, if I will be planning another vacation for next year I will be seeking out this condo. Loved it. It was clean and comfy, the kitchen had all the supplies I needed, and we had beach supplies too in case we needed something and we were even provided beach towels. We enoyed the balcony and breathtaking view it provided. Orlando was super nice and very welcoming, this was my third time staying in the same building except different unit but this unit was by far the best from anything we had in the past. Definitely recommending it, thumbs up.

Phenomenal experience and view

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with this rental from start to finish. The owners were so nice with their hospitality treatment, the view was great, the condo was clean and comfortable, and the complex fit everything we were looking for. Having stayed in different places in Florida for vacations for 8 years, this experience was by far our best one. Indian Shores was so peaceful and relaxing, yet a quick 5 minute drive puts you in the heart of anything you need. Thank you again for everything, and I'll always recommend you to anyone visiting the area.
