"It is clear from the moment you meet Susan that she cares about your experience. There is such pride in ownership and this is obvious in the well equipped and immaculate condo. The setting is beautiful and the complex and grounds well maintained. There is such care in ensuring that you have everything you need for a wonderful vacation and the condo is so clean and cared for that you truly want to care for it as if it is your own home. We not only re-booked for next year but I feel that I have also gained a new friend in Susan. My husband and I cannot wait until next year! "
What more can we tell you? Kindly call Susan if indeed, you need more info at 727-595-5727.
About Susan Boettle: Susan and I (Vic) have lived and rented beachfront condos for over 30 years. Susan hails from upstate NY (Cortland) and has lived locally here in the Clearwater/St Pete area, for many years. I grew up and lived in the Chicago/Peoria area coming to Florida 30 years ago. This is when I was lucky enough to have met and married Susan. She graduated from the Univ.of South Florida and I received my degree from Bradley Univ. in Peoria, IL. Susan is a 30 year retired Pinellas County teacher (K) and very proud of it. Finally, I convinced her to join me in retirement. Enough about us, what about you and yours?
Susan Boettle purchased this condo in 2002
Why Susan Boettle chose Indian Shores: Susan has the patience and knowledge to help anyone intending to visit this area. We have put our hearts and souls into making our direct beachfront condo one of the BEST on the beach. Add to that the direct, top floor location and you have a winner for your holiday. Worried about your car, then you will love our garage. How many condos offer you a garage? Best of all, is the unobstructed view from the private balcony, directly over the Gulf. Please, take a look at our pictures and you will see the exact Gulf views, of the entire beach. Each year we make improvements in the unit. In 2015, we put in a new tray kitchen ceiling with LED lighting and a new chandelier in the dining room. Last year it was new micro-fiber living room furniture, including a chaise lounge, and the year before that we added free WiFi and HD TV in the living room. In the previous year, we put new tile in the entry hallways, kitchen and both bathrooms. The list goes on and on, but we hope you get the idea!!! This place is maintained to very high standards, which we hope our visitors will appreciate and enjoy.
What makes this condo unique: If you plan to visit the area, you need someone you can trust, which describes us. Tired of dealing with fast-talking, rude, only interested in getting your booking people? That is NOT us. We like the old-fashioned telephone so that we can describe everything in full and to your complete satisfaction. We have been as honest as we possibly can be, with our pictures. We see pictures on the internet that are taken at the best possible angles, that represent views, that the complex offers, that make not true to the actual unit. We just shake our heads and feel sorry for the folks who get fooled' by such half-truths. This is one reason we meet and greet our visitors in person. We view the grounds together and walk into the unit with you. Someone not happy? This has yet to happened. If it were to occur, we would talk about it 'on the spot' and work it out. Finally, since we meet and greet all of our visitors, we provide the keys, so you do not need to drive up and down the beach (or fool with a lock box) to get keys. No doubt, flying or driving you will be tired and who needs to look for the whereabouts of the keys? Finally, since we have built a two way 'faith and trust' on the telephone, we have NO need to ask you to pay in advance. Payment is upon arrival. Many operations (most, if not all) ask you to pay in advance. Doesn't that make you feel a bit uncomfortable? It does when we travel. We do ask for a reservation deposit, when you book the condo. This assures us, that you are indeed coming and makes us feel better about turning others away for the dates you have reserved. We await your phone call and look forward to it!!! Evenings are best for us and we can be reached at 727-595-5727.
Guestbook comments from the owner From: Eisman1945@aol.com Sent: Thu 2/10/11 11:24 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sure thing, and thanks again! Diane & John In a message dated 2/10/2011 9:27What a nice EM. Thank you! We can only hope that our "paths" cross again. If any of your friends are in need of a place, kindly, let us know, so that we can "roll-out" the red carpet for them, too. You are GREAT people and we only wish we had MORE like you. Hope you enjoy those Stein Mart "goodies" and that the golf game stays up to "par". Best Regards, Vic & Susan-----------------------------------------------Hi Vic & Susan! Thanks so much for the prompt return of our security deposit.We enjoyed our Beach Cottages stay as well as could be expected under the difficult personal circumstances. The condo was beautiful and we enjoyed keeping it that way. We felt as if it was our own home. We'd love to come again, if our travels to Florida take us to the Gulf Coast. We'll certainly recommend our places to friends and family, should the opportunity arise. Again it was a pleasure to meet you both, and thank you for all your help during our stay.

My wife and I have been looking for a place to stay on the gulf coast for our Philadelphia Phillies Spring Training visit and at last we found it.
The "Peach on the Beach" is the perfect spot for us. The balcony looks out over the gulf with a view to die for. The condo itself is very well appointed with everything you will need for your stay. Susan met us upon arrival and instantly made us feel welcome. We even have a private/personal garage to park our car. Inside the garage was everything you need for the beach from chairs to floats. The outdoor private pool was excellent with an outdoor cooking grille.
Overall the condo is exceptional with all the comforts of home while on vacation.
Thank you Susan & Vic. We have found our home away from home in Florida. .We are looking forward to staying at the "Peach" many many more times.in the future.

We stayed at this property over the Xmas holidays and had a fabulous experience! Susan, the owner, met us upon our arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. So nice to have a friendly face greet you after a long travel day!! This property has everything you would need; all the comforts of your own home but with a stunning view of the beach from your patio!! You walk out of the elevator and you have a 24 mile stretch of beach waiting for you; it doesn't get better than that!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again soon!!

Our family enjoyed our stay in this condo very much. The owner met us and showed us around upon arrival, so we immediately knew how to get to the pool, beach, etc. she also gave us a tour of the condo, so we knew where the dishes and things were. The condo was probably the cleanest rental I have ever stayed in. We have two small children, so we almost felt bad at subjecting such a nice place to their messes! There is an almost constant breeze on the balcony and we ate most of our meals out there. There were also plenty of sand toys and floats so we did not have to purchase our own.
The area has so much to do! We really enjoyed John's Pass which is a short drive south. They have dolphin watching and sunset cruises. The Salt Rock Grill is also within walking distance an has excellent food.
The beach is clean and beautiful. We captured so many outstanding photos of the beach at sunset. Our kids enjoyed the soft sand and the great seashells, and the ocean waves were so calm that they could easily swim without getting knocked down. We loved staying here and would come back again in the future for sure.

My husband and I love our yearly visits to Florida and have been staying in Susan and Vic's Beach Palms condo since 2003.
The unit is beautifully decorated and always spotless. It is apparent that Susan and Vic put a great deal of effort into keeping their condo clean, well-maintained, and up-to-date with modern conveniences -- including a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, cable TV, DVD player, and WiFi access (allowing for a seamless and fast internet connection).
The direct gulf view is spectacular -- what a treat it is eating meals on our private balcony and taking daily walks on the beach!
The king-size bed in the master bedroom is extremely comfortable, and we love being lulled to sleep at night by the sound of the waves on the beach. The waves on our sound machine here at home are just no comparison to the real thing. Can't wait to go back!
Stayed December, 2017
We've stayed in three different units at Beach Palms and this one was by far the best! The view was fabulous. The beds were comfortable. It was completely outfitted with everything we could possibly have needed from linens to kitchen items to beach toys. Very nice and responsive owners. It was a wonderful experience overall and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable stay in Indian Shores!
Stayed July, 2017
Overall this was a great rental. The view of the Gulf of Mexico was excellent. The condo was immaculately clean and mostly updated. It's not your top of the line rental, but we were not looking for that. It was equipped with almost everything we needed for our stay. Susan was extremely friendly and the check in went very smoothly and quickly. (even though my husband got lost on the way and we were late- Susan was very kind about us arriving 30 minutes later than she expected)
The beach and pool area where very clean. We spent most of our time with our two young sons in the pool and some at the beach. It's a great place for a family.
We did get out and explore some places. The aquarium in Clearwater was just ok. We thought it was overpriced a bit, but Susan saved us a coupon so we saved a fair amount of money. (THANK YOU!)
We took our boys to the alligator exhibit in John Pass Village- that was great for them!
We also ate at Keegan's Seafood Restaurant. We LOVED IT!
A few things we thought that could be better were
1. a few more disposable kitchen supplies (as listed above so renters don't have to bother purchasing items they can't bring home)
2.The twin beds in the second bedroom seemed a little old and could probably benefit from an upgrade. My husband slept in that room with my 4 year old son and he said it wasn't very comfy. The master bed, however, was very comfortable.
3. Lastly, the carpet could probably use replacing. There were rugs and runners all over the apartment to help keep the carpet from wearing. While I appreciate and understand what they are trying to do, I ended up having to move some out of the way because I tripped on them a few time.
A suggestion I have for guests coming: You might consider bringing some saran wrap/foil, plastic baggies, olive oil for cooking and other items that you regularly use in the kitchen as there were very little to none provided. It would have been nice to have some of those things included. In a place we previously rented for a vacation most of that was provided so we didn't have to go out and buy it just for a week. I would have easily paid an extra fee to have (paper towel, olive oil, saran wrap, foil, and baggies) or other items provided for us in the kitchen.
Overall, we had a great time. I would recommend this rental to anyone with a young family. The space was ample enough for our family of 4. We would definitely consider renting this property again!

If the size of this condo fits your needs, your search is over! I have been vacationing on the Gulf Coast for many years and this rental is by far the nicest, cleanest, most well appointed "peach" on the beach that I have ever had the pleasure of calling "home" for a week. Susan was absolutely precious and made sure that we were taken care of after two days of a travelling nightmare with Allegiant. Thank you Susan, your hospitality was impressive and will not be forgotten. This unit is directly on the beautiful coast, conveniently located to restaurants and shopping, and the perfect oasis for your vacation. I LOVED the garage space for the car and the wonderful assortment of beach toys and necessities that were available for use with the condo. You literally don't need to worry about a thing--it's all here. Thank you Vic and Susan we certainly hope to return soon.

What a great vacation, what a fantastic condo - I really don't know how to start this review...
Should I tell you about the cleanest place at the beach (from Clearwater Beach to St.Pete Beach!), the fantastic view from the balcony, the perfect equipt condo, the charming Hosts, the perfect value, the comfort of a private garage...
Just a few words as a summary: We'll be back next year and we count the months.
Ein paar Stichworte auf Deutsch: Wir machen seit fast 20 Jahren Urlaub in diesem Gebiet, das Peach on the Beach ist bei weitem das sauberste und bestausgestatteste Condo in diesem Preissegment. Nicht günstig, aber seinen Preis wert. Sehr freundliche Eigentümer, die sich um ihren Besitz auch kümmern und Sorge dafür tragen, dass es so gepflegt bleibt wie es ist. Nächstes Jahr wieder!
