About Bruce Carter

I'm Curtis Westphal. My wife and I reside in Golden just outside of Denver. I am a city planner and trained as an architect. She is a part time school teacher. Her dad was a home builder in Michigan that brought the family down to Sarasota for a new start. My dad was a pilot in the Air Force that got transferred to the air base in Tampa. We met in college at the University of Florida. Both of us had relatives in Denver so after we graduated we took a road trip, liked Colorado and this has been our home for 30 years. We love the beach and the sun and the water. My grandparents that owned this place were very special people. It is always a good feeling when we make that last leg of our trip down there, cross the bridge onto the island and take in the smell of salt air and sight of the Gulf of Mexico.

Bruce Carter purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Bruce Carter chose Indian Shores

Its been in the family since 1966. Good memories of days on the beach with our 2 boys when my grandparents owned the place. Too nice to let it go. 3rd generation owner.

great proximity to beach....

  • 4 of 5

....not great proximity to road!!

our unit was clean and cute. bed was comfortable. kitchen was basic and adequate. exactly what we needed for a beach bacation. however, if you are accustomed to having quiet or being quiet, this is not the place to stay. the unit is 10 feet from the busy road. it is also below another unit and next

to the office with paper thin walls and ceiling... so we could hear EVERYTHING, and i am sure they could hear everything going on in our place too!

also, although this unit is about 30 steps from the beach, it does not have full, unobstructed views.

next time, we will try for something with a little more privacy- a stand alone house.

other than the noise it was great.

Love the location

  • 4 of 5

This beach house is literally on the beach! Just a 45 second walk and your there. While it wasn't the most luxurious we have stayed at, I feel like we definitely got our money's worth. It is a cheaper rental so no fancy frills with the house decor., but your here for the beach. The owners also offer kayaks, beach toys, umbrellas, chairs, etc everything you need for you beach getaway. I do recommend this house.

Great spot for a beach vacation away from the crow

  • 4 of 5

The one bedroom was clean and the interior has been updated over the years. It has some charm as it was built in 1915. Located on a beautiful section of beach with few people. Convenient location with plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. Bruce was responsive and we enjoyed our stay. There is a partial view of the beach from the small living room looking across the parking lot. This section of the island is very narrow with the intra coastal waterway and a well travelled road directly behind the unit so there can be some traffic noise. All in all a cute place in a nice location for a relaxing getaway...

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazingly relaxing vacation. The beach was right in front of us and the accommodations were simple but clean.

We especially appreciated the friendly management and all the little extra. ie welcome sign, beach chairs, umbrella and fluffy towels. Its a happy environment and we will certainly revisit next year .

Location

Nearest Airport

Nearest Golf
3 Miles
Largo Golf
Nearest Beach
We are on the beach. 12 steps away
Car: recommended

Location, Location , Location...You will be vacationing on the closest beach to Tampa airport while also secluded from the vacation crowds. We are located in 'The Narrows', so named by the local settlers of the 1920's because the barrier island is so skinny here that there is only room for a single row of homes. The emerald green waters of the Gulf are out your front door and and yachts cruising the channel are out your back door. Water surrounds you like no where else with fantastic tropical views and a true island feeling. Our many repeat guests tell us that this is the most coveted spot on the 12 miles of world class beaches between Clearwater and St Petersburg.
