**Summer is around the corner and that means Floridians can enjoy the beach for more than a weekend since kids are out of school. Indian Shores is such a great beach for family vacations and Grandma's Rest welcomes kids of all ages. I am offering a 10% discount off the base rental rate to all Florida residents that book the condo during the month of August! If you are a returning guest AND a Florida resident, I will take 15% off. Please mention this in your inquiry so your quote will be correct (tax and admin fees are excluded)**
Cozy and inviting, this Florida Gulf Beach vacation condo is just waiting for you!
I would like to cordially invite you to my Indian Shores beach condo, "Grandma's Rest", named in honor of my mother. I am excited to be sharing our beach condo dream with you. After a very successful 2017, please come and enjoy your 2018 beach vacation at Grandma's Rest. Delight in all the lovely updates that are now completed inside, as you bask in the beauty of the white, sand beaches and the sparkling, blue water on the Gulf side of the property.
Located in the Holiday Villas III complex, which is right on the Gulf of Mexico and just across the street from the Intercoastal Waterway, this condo provides the best of both worlds. Begin your day by sipping a cup of coffee and watching the serene sunrises from the balcony that overlooks the Intercoastal. The wildlife abounds with shore birds and dolphins. Just steps to a brand new, (rebuilt in Nov, 2016) private fishing pier, try your hand at catching tonight's dinner! If you are in the mood for more activity, head to the west side of the complex. There you will be greeted with a breathtaking expanse of white, sand beach and the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As my guest, you are welcome to enjoy the heated pool overlooking the beach, a picnic area with charcoal grills, shuffleboard and volleyball. The sunsets, best viewed from the beach or the pool area, are absolutely spectacular, Mother Nature's perfect ending to a perfect day.
Inside, you will find that Grandma's Rest has been freshly updated. From the 2 bedrooms, the 2 full bathrooms, the kitchen which is fully stocked with dishes and cookware, and the expansive living and dining space, you will find upscale touches everywhere! You'll be greeted by clean, cool tile floors throughout, sparkling Quartz countertops and ceiling fans in every room. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and queen bed, the guest bedroom has one full size and one twin bed, and the living area has a queen sleeper sofa, plenty of room to comfortably sleep 7 guests. All beds, including the sleeper sofa are brand new. Both bathrooms have a refinished shower/tub combination for washing the sand off your little ones at the end of the day.
Grandma's Rest is comfortable and relaxing. Combined with the captivating details that I have personally selected, you'll find that not only is this the perfect vacation condo, but a place with heart you'll want to make your own, year after year.
Thank you for stopping by! Please check back frequently for updated pictures and availability. I welcome the opportunity to answer any questions you may have.

About Sharyn Schmidt
Hi. My name is Sharyn. I'm so glad you could stop by and take a look at Grandma's Rest, named in honor of my mother.. We always had a dream of owning a beachfront condo on the beautiful, Florida Gulf Coast. Now, that dream is a reality, and I'm blessed to be able to share it with you. Grandma's Rest is my vacation home as well, and now that I'm a grandma too, I look forward to making long lasting vacation memories here with my own grandchildren.
Sharyn Schmidt purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Sharyn Schmidt chose Pinellas County
Indian Shores is a wonderful place for a relaxing, low key, family vacation. Close to St Pete, Clearwater and all the Tampa attractions, it offers something for everyone in the family. Beachlovers (like me!!!) can spend their day soaking up the sun and swimming in the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico, while those family members that don't want to sunworship can sightsee and take in all the Tampa attractions. At the end of the day, everyone can come back to Grandma's Rest, have a family meal together and watch the breathtaking sunsets.

Our vacation here was phenomenal!
This condo was amazing. We just left this morning and my whole family was so sad to go. The location is phenomenal - steps from the beach (behind the building) and not "touristy" or overcrowded at all. For my daughter's first trip to the beach it was perfect. We relaxed, built sandcastles and played in the waves, all with very few other people around! You are 25 minutes from PIE airport and 10 minutes from everything else we did - Indian Rocks to the North and John's Pass to the South. The inside of the condo was very well appointed with lots of kitchen utensils, beach toys, and towels. The 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms were great.
My girls loved eating meals on the balcony and watching boats go by. We will seriously be back next year! Thank you!
Good value for a small stay
No issues with the property. Easy check n and check out. Place was clean and well kept. Never had any problems, everything seemed to work fine.
The perfect home away from home!
Our vacation at Grandma’s Rest was incredible! Sharyn was so helpful from the very beginning, even prior to booking! She answered all my questions (and there were a lot) very timely and thoroughly including all kinds of information about the area and site seeing opportunities! She truly goes above and beyond to make her clients happy! The condo was so perfect, very clean and spacious for our family of 5! She had tons of extras for my kids to play on the beach and for us to sit back and relax on the beach! The condo is in a great location as the beach wasn’t to crowded even with the perfect weather we had and there is lots to do in the area for family fun and delicious food! We will absolutely be back in the future and will stay at Grandma’s Rest again!
We had a wonderful week at Grandma's Rest. Everything went very smoothly. From the beginning of our planning, everyone was helpful and informative. We appreciated the updates before our trip and the check-in and check-out went great.
We enjoyed our stay in Condo 110. It had everything we needed for our week stay. We love coming to Indian Shores. It is a very quiet and calm area, just what we are looking for in a vacation. Thank you for everything.
Thank you so much, Michelle, for your 5 star review of Grandma's Rest!!!
I am so glad the planning, arrival and departure process went smoothly for you and Grandma's Rest was equipped
with everything you needed for a comfortable stay.
I agree with you, Indian Shores is an outstanding vacation spot, quiet and relaxed but with plenty of nightlife
close by for a change of pace.
I hope to have you back as my guest in the future! Please note that returning guests receive a 10% discount on
the base rental rate, excluding certain Spring season weeks and Holidays. Taxes and administrative fees are not
Thank you again for choosing Grandma's Rest and taking the time to submit this wonderful review!
Great condo and location
Grandma's rest is a great place. It was exactly as described. Sharyn was wonderful and responded to all of my many emails. Unfortunately the weather was quite cold so we didn't sit out on the balcony as much as I expected but the sunrise view was spectacular. The pool was nice and warm and the beach was gorgeous. Thank you!
Thank you, Lori, for your 5 star review of Grandma's Rest!
I appreciate the kind words, I try my best to make the vacation planning simple, smooth, and straightforward!
I am sorry about the cold snap we had! Hopefully you will come back and experience some warmer weather. Please remember that returning guests get a 10% discount on the base rental rates with certain Spring weeks and holidays excluded. The discount does not apply to admin fees or taxes.
Thank you so much for choosing Grandma's Rest! I hope to see you and your family back again soon.
Grandma’s Reat was as promised - perfect for what we needed this vacation!
Holiday Villas III is great property with access to an awesome beachfront and a heated pool. So easy to get to from Tampa Bay Int’l Airport. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you, Andrea, for your 5 star review of Grandma's Rest. I am so glad to hear that the property was perfect for your vacation and was as described!
I have to agree that the Holiday Villas III has a great beachfront that you really can't get any closer to. As an added bonus, not only is the pool heated, as you mentioned, but it has a great view of the beach.
I would welcome you back as my guest! Returning guests get a 10% discount on the base rental rate (with the exception of some Spring and Holiday weeks) should you decide you would like to return to Grandma's Rest in the future. (administrative fees and taxes are also excluded from the discount)
