Natalie and Eric Wetherington purchased this condo in 2013

Why Natalie and Eric Wetherington chose Florida Central West

We love Indian Shores! It is perfectly located between all of the action and you still get a beautiful and quiet beach. True 'Old Florida Charm', without all of the hustle and bustle, but not too far removed. There are so many things to do in the area. So whether you want to relax and get some down-time, or have an action-packed weekend, this is the perfect place.

What makes this condo unique

We love that you get both sunsrise and sunset from the balconies at the condo. A perfect beginning and end to the day. We also love the 8th floor observation deck and tennis courts. All of the amenities at the condo are just perfect. The fishing dock keeps the children occupied for hours, along with the pool, jacuzzi and sauna. With the beach just across the street this truly is the perfect vacation away.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year that we have stayed in Eric and Natalie's condo at Bayshores for the month of March so I think it goes without saying that we love it there. We are a retired couple and are fortunate enough to have some of our family visit us and make great memories (they love it there too). Everything is supplied to make your stay enjoyable and Randy will have the place neat and clean when you arrive.Thanks Randy! The proximity to the beach, a three minute walk, and the view from the balcony, watching boats and dolphins make it a perfect place to relax and enjoy the morning sun. We all love John's Pass, the cozy coffee shop down the street. the Salt Rock Restaurant, the visits to the discount mall at Ellenton, the ball parks at Clearwater and Dunedin and of course (because we are Canadian) the Amalie Arena in Tampa. Go Bolts! We are already looking forward to our visit next March. We would highly recommend reserving this condo. You won't regret it!

Beautiful Sunrise

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying here and I can not wait to return this fall. This condo has everything you need as a home away from home. Close to the beach or if you prefer the pool it's just delightful too. Get up early for the sunrises they are spectacular! Natalie, as always, is such a pleasure and very helpful.

Excellent location for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I looked at probably 90-100 condo's on VRBO from Clearwater to Pass-a-grille. This one appeared to have the best combination of location, price, and quality of condo. It did not disappoint!

Our crew was 2 adults and 2 children (5 and 2). I loved the second floor because we could take the stairs and didn't have to wait on the elevator. The view out the back door was awesome...boats, dolphins, and all kinds of birds and fish. The hallway closet (i.e. magic closet of fun) had tennis racquets, tennis balls, golf balls and kid putters, fishing pole, all the beach equipment you need, and board games. We played tennis several mornings, played golf at the property putting green, and spent lots of time at the beach. I caught several fish (use squid) on the fishing dock by the pool.

I highly recommend this condo to families or couples looking for a quiet location that is still very convenient. From the front door, you can be at the beach in 5 minutes and to the pool or fishing dock in 30 seconds. You can get to Largo in 10 minutes for anything you need (Walmart market, Publix, Starbucks, restaurants, Walgreens, etc).

Our condo offers so many amenities right at your doorstop. If the beautiful 'Old Florida-style' peaceful beach isn't enough there is plenty to do in the area. Savor the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets right from your condo balconies. The beach is only 120 steps away. We have 4 tennis courts , a 9 hole putting green on the property, a beautiful pool and jacuzzi overlooking the intracoastal complete with gas grills and a tiki hut. There is even a sauna for you to enjoy on the property. Right next door you will find a beautiful miniature golf adventure park. 'Voted the best miniature golf 3 years in a row by the Florida Monthly Magazine'. They even have live alligators that you can feed! Rent kayaks and paddle through the mangroves and enjoy all that nature has to offer-rent a scooter and scoot on down to John's Pass or up to Clearwaterz. If you prefer you can take the trolley! The trolley stop is at the entrance of the complex and stops by every 30 min-an hour (times displayed at stop). Enjoy waterfront dining next door at the famous Salt Rock Grill. Salt Rock Grill is a legendary beach landmark that has a burning passion for delectable food, enticing drink and pleasurable surroundings. Known for their hand cut U.S.D.A prime and choice grade beef, fresh dayboat caught seafood, raw bar and amazing wine cellar. There are plenty of local restaurants just blocks from the condo including: The Pub Waterfront Restaurant, Crabby Bill's, Mahuffer's, Pj's and plenty more. Just 10 minutes south you can visit John's Pass Fisherman's Village. Located on the waterfront at Johns Pass, this quaint turn-of-the-century fishing village is Pinellas County’s #1 tourist attraction. Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, boat rentals, parasailing and jet skiing. Take the trolley for a short ride to the north and you will find the Clearwater Marina where the blockbuster movie Dolphin Tales was filmed. Meet the star of the movie, Winter and see all of the other rescued dolphins, sea turtles, otters and other creatures. There are plenty of activities including, dinner cruises, wave runners, dolphin and snorkeling cruises and parasailing. Clearwater buzzes with activity: swimming, boating, fishing, water sports, volleyball and biking or blading along the Beach Walk promenade. There’s no shortage of beach amenities, from concessions and cabanas to marinas, watercraft rentals and playgrounds. Head to Sunsets at Pier 60 for the nightly celebration featuring live music, street performers, craft vendors and more. A free family-friendly movie is screened after sunset here on weekends, weather permitting. The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is less than a mile away and is open daily and free to the public. Also note that May 1-October 31 is Sea Turtle Season. Please be aware and take precautions if you see sea turtle tracks on the beach.

Just 30 minutes away in Tampa is Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Aquarium. Just 90 minutes away in Orlando is Disney World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Sea World.
