Indian Shores Beach Rentals by Owner Updated beachfront three-bedroom vacation condo.

Owner Operated by: Pam Carpentier

Tommy Bahama style, three bedroom, two bath, vacation, penthouse condominium. It directly overlooks the glistening Gulf of Mexico and sparkling white, sandy beach of Indian Shores. The penthouse was professionally redecorated and upgraded.

The penthouse is located on the top, tenth 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.

I've been managing my own condos since 2001 and listed my first one with VRBO that same year. I have been using my own comprehensive reservation system and Bank of America Merchant Services Credit Card Processing. Please email me first to give me time to answer, since I am an owner and do my own management (and feel I do a better job that way).

Here's my cancellation and reservation policies... 60 days prior to arrival with 100% refund (minus $200 cancellation fee and travel insurance if purchased) and 30 days prior to arrival with 50% refund (minus $200 cancellation fee and travel insurance if purchased) . 25% of the grand total will reserve the condo, accepting all forms of credit cards or Home Away Payments. The balance is due 30 days prior to arrival.

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 two barbecue grills and a charcoal grill with tables for pool-side fun.

Over-size beach front balcony seats up to nine for entertaining and breathtaking views.

Master bedroom has brand-new, tropical island-style furniture with luxurious king-size bed, en suite bathroom, ceiling fan, opens to beachfront balcony. Second bedroom has two plush queen size beds with TV/DVD with panoramic views of intercoastal waterways. Third bedroom has new furniture with two twin size beds and TV/DVD also overlooking the intercoastal waterways. Very comfy leather sofa, over-size rattan chairs, and ceiling fan in living room opens to beachfront balcony. There are ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms too!

About Pam Carpentier, owner and manager for 16 years, please call to reserve

I live in the Tampa Bay Beaches area since 1960 and enjoy renting out my condos to vacationers. I have 2 kids, almost all grown up now!!!

Pam Carpentier, owner and manager for 16 years, please call to reserve purchased this condo in 2001

Why Pam Carpentier, owner and manager for 16 years, please call to reserve chose Indian Shores

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Great location, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 young daughters had a wonderful time at this property. The condo had everything we could've wanted, including beach toys for the kids and beach chairs for us. The pool and Jacuzzi were immaculate and enjoyed just hanging out there when we weren't on the beach or dining at one of the many close by restaurants. We made a day trip to Disney but the rest of the time we just enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and taking in the views, early morning shell hunts on the beach or just being beach bums. Lots to do... or not. Highly recommend this place, and I can't wait to come back.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and Comfortable Condo. View is wonderful from the 10th floor. Great balcony to sit and enjoy morning coffee and watch for the dolphins to swim by. Beds are comfortable and very nice towels. Including Beach towels. There's everything you need for a great trip provided. You can't beat the location. Many local restaurants and activities down the road at Johns Pass. (Jet Ski's, Parasailing, Shopping, Boat Tours, etc.) The Pub restaurant/bar across the street is convenient and serves great food and beverages. Also, across the street is a ice cream shop with fantastic homemade daily ice cream. Other favorites are PJ's Oyster Bar/Restaurant, The Conche, and Mad Beach Brewery. JD's is also good and has live music everyday on their patio and a piano bar inside. And, don't forget a visit to Mauhauffers aka Sloppy Johns-The Wurst place on the beach. It's truly a unique experience for a cocktail. (No food Served) The beach has much wildlife and shells for collecting. The owner provides great customer service. If you have any questions or issues she usually gets back to you within the hour. I would highly recommend a stay in this Condo. It was our 3rd time here and coming back next year!

Top notch accomodations and location!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing, so happy we spent the extra money to rent this beautiful unit. We really appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was as we cooked most our meals. We had two small boys with us and spent a lot of time on the beach, so we loved all the beach toys, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, beach towels provided with the unit. Everything was updated and top notch from beds/linens, great towels, updated décor/furnishings. We loved the location and view – perfect for our family and lots of stuff close by to eat/do/shop/rental stuff/fishing/etc. Owner's was great with communication – always very responsive with any questions.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed the use of the kitchen. I try to think of everything so that you can save money preparing your meals rather than eating out all of the time. I'm a Mom and spent many times taking the kids to the beach and know what they love! Thank you for your review and I hope to have you back soon! Pam

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about this property! It was beautiful! The unit was clean and comfortable. The decor was beautiful with lovely beach themes, not overdone or tacky (like some beach themes can be). The unit really does have everything you could need other than personal items. The kitchen has pretty much any item you can think of. We grilled out one day and couldn't find grilling utensils and I was going to make the suggestion to the owner to add them, then we found them the next day! The balcony has beautiful views! Great place to eat breakfast in the morning and have a drink at night. The closet on the balcony has so many items for the beach-toys, inflatables, chairs, etc. I also loved not having to worry about bringing any towels, sheets, etc. on our trip. All these items were provided as well. The beach is lovely. Lots of great shells to find. The pool and hot tub area are clean. My husband said one of the grills wasn't working during our stay, but the other one was and worked well. We really had a great time! I would happily come back here again! Thank you for the great place!

Sand Castle II Penthouse #2 June 17-24

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in the Sand Castle complex. Each time just seems to get better. Pam (condo owner) was a pleasure to do business with, provided everything we needed for making a good decision for our stay. We had 8 people in the condo for this week and enjoyed the stay very much. Checking in and out was a breeze. The beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped, tv's in every room. We enjoyed the beachfront location, easy access to local restaurants and activities. There is a pool onsite which offers an option other than salt water activities and there are two grills available for cookout poolside. We love this location, the warm gulf waters and tropical views of sunsets.
