traveler reviews for this indian shores condo rental

March Break 2014 at the Palms

Review submitted: April 8, 2014   Date of arrival: March 15, 2014

Our family of four adults spent a week in March at the Beach Palms and enjoyed the beachfront condo and its lovely pool. Our weather was not ideal but the comfort and cleanliness of the condo as well as the excellent amenities made the time relaxing.
The owner takes great care in the upkeep and appearance of the unit and appreciates renters who will do the same. Written instructions are liberally provided throughout the unit and the owner has assembled a binder with all the local activities and attractions to make your stay as active as you desire.
This stretch of beach is pristine and the view from our balcony kept us entranced. In spite of the busy March Break week, our unit was quiet and peaceful.
If you are willing to follow the owners' instructions on preserving the appearance of the condo and enjoy beach life you will love this place.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, romantic getaway

Owners response: We always wish we could control the weather, but alas, alas. However, we are so happy the you enjoyed your visit inspite of the weather. You guys were a pleasure to have and fully understood the importance of keeping the condo clean and nice for the NEXT people. Thank you, so very much. Isn't nice to know that if you chose to stay with us again (and we hope you do) that upon arrival you will AGAIN be pleased., because the people before you took such good care of it. Of, course, when we clean the unit upon all deparures we INSURE that the unit is in "TIP TOP" shape for the next folks. Thanks, again, for taking the time to review out "PEACH on the BEACH"

Beautiful Condo, Excellent Owners

Review submitted: January 10, 2014   Date of arrival: December 28, 2013

We had an amazing time at the Beach Palms unit provided by Vic and Susan. This was our first experience renting a vacation rental and I believe our future rentals will have a tough act to follow. This condo is exceptionally clean and maintained. You will not find a speck of dust or dirt in this spacious unit. The owners were so friendly and accommodating the entire time. They were gracious enough to check us into the unit later than planned due to flight problems. They met us upon arrival and gave us the tour of the unit as well as tips on restaurants, shopping and things to do. The location of the condo is exceptional as well with amazing, unobstructed views of the gulf. The pool area was also well maintained, where the kids enjoyed the heated pool while it was sprinkling outside as my husband grilled us lunch. It was great to have so much provided in the unit, such as beach towels and tons of toys and beach chairs in the garage. The unit has a great layout for our family of four. We especially enjoyed the new living room furniture. My only complaint was that our schedule did not allow us to stay longer. We were just getting really comfortable and then it was time to pack up and head back to the cold north. We highly recommend this unit and will definitely plan to stay here again if our travels lead us back to the Tampa area. Thanks so much Vic and Susan for a wonderful stay!

Owners response: We are so very happy that you guys enjoyed our topview, direct Gulf condo. We certainly appreciated having such a fine family, such as yours. We are so very happy that the children enjoyed the heated pool. No doubt the kids know now that the pool temperature is kept at 84 degrees and on some days (not many) you can see the steam coming off the pool. Many rentals have pools, but not many heat them, let alone keeping the temperature at 84. Yes, please come again and yes, please stay longer.

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas...

Review submitted: December 30, 2013   Date of arrival: December 21, 2013

... Except, that's not true at all. :) My husband and I were dreaming of a sunny, warm, relaxing week of Christmas vacation. We fled Ohio's cold and we were greeted with beautiful sunshine and a gorgeous beachfront condo!

Upon our decision to go on vacation, we found this wonderful listing and knew this was our place. After emailing the Boettles, they responded with a personal phone call to get details about our expectations for our stay. Susan was very personal and full of great information about the condo. After her call, we were even more excited.

After our flight, we called Susan and she met us to show us around the condo. We were blown away! There was a garage to park our rental vehicle, beach equipment (chairs, wagon, fishing pools, etc.), a guide to tourist attractions, handwritten notes around the condo, and wireless connection for our technology! The beach is just BEAUTIFUL and that is where we spent our days. Our nights were spent on the balcony reading and listening to the waves. We loved waking up to a beautiful beach view in the master bedroom. We couldn't have asked for a better view of the scenery!

We were a little nervous about staying in such a CLEAN and well kept condo, but we decided that was one of the things we loved most about it. We felt right at home. :) If we visit Indian Shores, this would be our number one choice to stay and we have already told all of our friends and family about our amazing time in this cozy little beach condo.

If you do visit, and you love coffee just as much as us, make sure you visit the Indian Shores Coffee Company. The lattes were exceptional! Also, we visited Oakhurst United Methodist church for a Contemporary Christmas Eve Church service. This was a great church to visit during our stay. We also recommend visiting it.

Thanks to Susan and Vic for an amazing and personal stay! We will always remember our vacation
in Indian Shores.

Love, the Braumillers

Recommended for: girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: What a nice review and from such very nice people. You two are in our "TOP TEN" for clean and also for being such GREAT folks. That "folks" thing kind of makes you sound old and we know that is not true. We are so happy that a young couple like you two, found our condo so interesting. I guess it shows that an old retired "K" teacher can get along and enjoy a young "K" teacher in todays world. We were so very happy to hear that you will be making a return visit to our area and condo --- and we look forward to it. Vic & Susan
