About Cheri Wilhelm

Retired senior living in Toronto Canada. I fell in love with the Gulf coast 35 years ago. Downsized my home after retirement and purchased my home away from home. I could not be happier when I am there.

Cheri Wilhelm purchased this condo in 2004

Why Cheri Wilhelm chose Independence Square

I searched all of the beach towns from Myrtle Beach to Key West to Pensacola for 3 years. Purchased here because of the Village on the Gulf, Safe/Low Crime rate, year round international air service, Storm/Hurricane stats, building height restrictions,quaintness of the cottages and above all, the beach belongs to everyone and access is not restricted to locals.

What makes this condo unique

Over the years I have been improving my place as funds allow. Most renters are repeats (some 12 years in a row). I prefer couples, I self manage to keep my rates reasonable.

This was our first time at Cheri's place. It was wonderful and the the weather was perfect. The beach and pool were steps away and we enjoyed watching the sunsets every night from the balcony. We could walk to all the fabulous restaurants in the quaint little village just steps away. We did not have to take the car and find parking and we could have a second drink. The condo is very well equipped and has simply everything a person could ever need.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Cheri's condo for my husband, myself, and our 9 year old daughter. We LOVED the whole experience! The condo was immaculate and beautifully decorated, and the village of Indian Rocks Beach was quaint and inviting. The views and accessibility to the beach were both amazing perks as well. Cheri was wonderful to rent from- communicating and checking on us, as well as leaving great info on local attractions and restaurants, etc. We had an amazing trip and would love to come back and rent from her again.

Gulf Coast View Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that my we have booked a Condo in Florida. This home was wonderful. We were able to view the ocean from this second floor condo in both the living room and master bedroom. All we had to do was open the patio door to either watch or hear the ocean. The beach was less then a football field from the condo. We enjoyed going to the beach early in the morning and walking the beach, hunting for shells, and watching the fishermen. We spent most of the morning sitting in lounge chairs (provided by the owner) and watching the ocean or reading. There was also a small heated pool if you didn't want to swim in the ocean. The condo itself was very clean and had everything we needed for our two week stay. Restaurants, shops, and the local attractions were an easy walk or very short drive. The neighbors were friendly and offered advise on local attractions and activities. We would love to return to this condo in the future. Cheri left a book which listed care of the condo and appliances; contact information; and information on local attractions and restaurants which was very helpful. She also called to make sure that everything was satisfactory. Thanks Cheri for sharing your home with us.

Beachcombers Delight !!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! This was our first visit and would certainly come back! The unit has everything: decorated with vibrant colours, comfortable just calls out to the vacationer! Beautiful sunsets grace a comfortable balcony overlooking the gorgeous beach which is only a few steps from the unit. Cooking in with modern appliances and all the utensils imaginable or dining out at one of the many nearby restaurants or at John's Pass where Waltz Fish Shack was a standout, made mealtimes special. Evening strolls along the beach make each day complete. We are sure that visitors will not be disappointed and will want to return year after year!!

Perfect Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This year was our 8th time at this wonderful condo. It is always very clean and has been very well maintained, with a comfortable living area and spacious bedroom with comfy kingsize bed (both rooms with the wonderful view of the ocean). The kitchen was great before and is now superb as it has been remodelled. It has every appliance that you might need on vacation. There is a selection of beach towels, loungers, chairs and beach umbrella. Cheri is very caring and attentive, we couldn't ask for better. We love this area because it is quiet and the beach never seems too busy. There are great restaurants within walking distance so you don't always have to get in the car. We love waking up to the beautiful view every morning and can't wait to go back for our 9th time.

Thanks again Cheri.

We have stayed here for years

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been staying in this beautiful condo for years and every year it gets better and better. We come every year. The condo was newly remodeled this year. We loved it before the remodel and we adore it now. Absolutely beautiful. We have NEVEER had any problems with the cleanliness of the condo. It is always sparkling clean when we rent it. The owner is a wonderful lady who deeply cares about the people who rent the unit. Tons of things to do. Disney World is about 90 minutes away and Bush Gardens about 30 minutes away. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Wonderful location right between Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach. If you are only coming for the beach experience, you don't even need a car. There is a trolley that runs back and forth up and down the beach. Daily passes are available and you can go to restaurants, attractions, stores for a very modest daily rate. Views are spectacular and the beach is not crowded even on the weekends. We look forward to vacationing here for many years to come. My husband retires next year and we hope to try to get down here twice a year.
