Why Ed Bates chose Indian Shores
I have travelled to many areas in Florida. This part of Florida between Clearwater Beach and St Petersburg Beach is the most beautiful and relaxing part of Florida, yet convenient to many facilities and attractions. The 15 miles of wide white sand beaches are fantastic and are suitable for swiming, walking, running, and even bicycles as the sand is firm near the tide line yet fluffy back from the tide.
What makes this Condo unique
Great breakfasts and sunsets on the balcony overlooking the beach and Gulf,great tropical garden on the beach with palms, tiki huts, hot tub, and pool all beachside. Great restraunts in the area and a family oriented condo atmosphere. Be sure to visit some of the great Florida State Parks in the area including Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island, Myakka River and Egmont Key, featuring trails,boat rides, kayaks,bird watching, and even alligators.

Aside from the cold weather during our stay, everything else was fantastic! Everything! The reservation process and communication with the owner was smooth and stress free. Check-in was quick and easy and they were so friendly, it was actually fun! The condo itself was perfect and beautiful and in a great location. Thank you!
We had an amazing time at the condo. It was very nice everything was perfect and all rooms are just like the pictures. The furniture on the balcony were the best thing. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax. The view was just as beautiful as pictured.
Definitely will book again next January.
Thank you for your review and I look forward to your return. I realize that my guests have entrusted me with not only their vacation dollars, but also their precious vacation time, so I strive to make their stay as pleasant as possible. I appreciate the reference to my balcony and the view. I provide seating at "counter height" so that guests can see the great view over the railing, rather than thru the railing.
I have rented several condos from this website and this by far was the best. The property owner called to check on us to make sure we made it ok and if we were happy with the accommodations. We had a small inconvenience with the ice maker, however, Ed was very responsive and made it right.
I will definitely rent from this owner again if I’m coming to the area and will recommend it to others!
Thanks for sharing your lovely condo with us.
Thank you for your review. I strive to provide my guests with the best experience possible, and correct any deficiency ASAP. I look forward to your return.
Perfect location and lots of space! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely book again :)
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I take a personal interest in providing the best guest experience possible. Well over half of my bookings are repeat guests and I look forward to your return.
The grounds and condo were beautiful! The condo exceeded my expectations, it looked like it should be in a magazine layout and the view spectacular. Everything we could possibly need was provided. We plan to return as often as possible.
Thank you for your lovely review. I strive to exceed guests expectations and I am delighted that you had a great time. I look forward to your return as soon as your schedule allows.
