Property description

Remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bath Vacation Condominium for rent. It directly overlooks the glistening Gulf of Mexico and sparkling white, sandy beach of Indian Shores, bordering Indian Rocks Beach. The Condo is professionally redecorated and upgraded every year with all new Island-Style furnishings and brand new granite kitchen with stainless steel appliances. New bathrooms too! Very Upscale! ***PLEASE EMAIL ME BEFORE CALLING, SINCE I'M STILL RAISING A FAMILY... I PROMISE TO GET RIGHT BACK WITH YOU.***

When you send me an email, VRBO/Homeaway will respond with a negative statement: How to Pay Safely
This owner doesn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout. You won't be eligible for our Book with Confidence Guarantee. --- This is implying that although I've been managing my own condos since 2001 and have had them listed with VRBO, since 2002, and have been using my own comprehensive reservation system and Bank of America Merchant Services Credit Card Processing long before Vacation Rental By Owner started forcing their owners and now many management companies (not owners) to use their Merchant Services to make more money for themselves just 2 - 3 years ago, that your reservation is not safe with me. Well it is very safe. It is much easier for you to get your money back through your credit card company than it is for VRBO to hold on to it and stick you in another condo or hotel that is not of your choice and this is if something goes wrong. I have heard stories of double bookings and how does VRBO guarantee that they can find you another one at the last minute better than you can, especially when all of the beaches are completely sold out! Wouldn't you rather get your money back from your bank yourself and have the freedom to find your own place at the last minute? If you google my name, you will see 2 decades of happy customers with no complaints. I don't appreciate the negative connotations that my potential guests receive just because I don't use their merchant services and I spend over $5,000 a year, advertising with VRBO/Home Away!

This Unit is located on the 4th floor of the popular Sand Castle II Condominiums. The Master bedroom and living room share an extra-large balcony directly overlooking the beach with breathtaking panoramic views; perfect for enjoying our brilliant sunsets.

The quiet, wide beach offers sparkling, white sand loaded with undiscovered seashells and relaxing cabanas. The heated swimming pool and whirlpool/spa stays warm all year long. There are 2 BBQ grills with tables for pool-side fun. On the beach, there are comfy beach chairs with either summer-time umbrellas or spring-time cabanas for rent. There are beach chairs, rafts, and toys available to take down to the beach, too!

Oversize balcony seats up to 7 guests for entertaining and breathtaking views. Be sure to check out the Virtual Tour on the Website link!

Tommy Bahama style reclining sofa, reclining love seat, in living room opens to the beachfront balcony. There is WIFI high speed internet access for your laptop. The Master bedroom has brand-new, tropical island-style furniture with a luxurious King-size bed with plush mattress, TV/DVD, remodeled bathroom with shower, and ceiling fan, which opens to the beachfront balcony.

The Gorgeous 2nd bedroom has all new furniture too with King and Twin sized beds with a TV/DVD/VCR with Nintendo hook-ups. The 3rd bedroom has new furniture with a Queen-sized bed and TV overlooking the intercoastal waterways. All of the rooms have ceiling fans.

Kudos from recent guests:
'Thank you for letting us use your wonderful home. It was just what we were looking for...close to a relaxing beach, but not too far from everything else. We had a great time and could not have asked for anything else.' Janet, Vincent, Rosemarie, Nathan, Stephanie, Natalie, and Grandma Janet

'Our entire family is here from Wisconsin and it is our second time back here to Indian Shores. The house is beautiful, very nicely furnished - the palm tree is a very nice touch! We thank you for opening your home up to others to share the beauty, not just of the home, but of the entire experience - the view from the balcony is breathtaking itself - where you are up here looking out over the water, either at people on the beach, jet skiing - or the sunset. It all just leaves an imprint in your thoughts and memories. We were even able to sit on the comforts of our own balcony and watch all the spectacular fireworks up and down the beach - and the best part - No Crowds! It was awesome. Thanks again for a truly memorable vacation for all to remember for a long time, or at least until next year.' Dan, Barb, Keven, Kim John, Karla, Tony, and Sarah

'I have been coming to Sand Castle since I was 8 years old. Every trip has had a special memory with my family. This trip is especially memorable because we have come with our daughter and she had a wonderful holiday. She loved playing in the sand and finding shells, and watching the pelicans and boats from the balcony. Y our home by the sea is beautiful and we were very lucky to stay in your home.' Mike, Jan, Keirstin, Liz & Michael

Owner info

Sunset Beach Condos, Inc

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I live in the Tampa Bay Beaches area since 1960 and enjoy renting out my condos to vacationers. I have 2 kids in school.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Shores, FL, USA:
I grew up in this area and have spent most of my life here. I have done a lot of traveling and think that our beaches combined with the Tampa Bay area have much to offer anyone.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I love to relax on my balcony in the mornings with my coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The beach is never crowded, however the selection of great restaurants are endless. There are also great boating opportunities. My kids love the pool and beach and never get tired of coming.
