**Summer is here!!! Floridians can enjoy the beach for more than a weekend since kids are out of school. Indian Shores is such a great beach for family vacations and Grandma's Rest welcomes kids of all ages. I am offering a 10% discount off the base rental rate to all Florida residents that book the condo during the month of August! If you are a returning guest AND a Florida resident, I will take 15% off. Please mention this in your inquiry so your quote will be correct (tax and admin fees are excluded)**

Cozy and inviting, this Florida Gulf Beach vacation condo is just waiting for you!

I would like to cordially invite you to my Indian Shores beach condo, "Grandma's Rest", named in honor of my mother. I am excited to be sharing our beach condo dream with you. After a very successful 2017, please come and enjoy your 2018 beach vacation at Grandma's Rest. Delight in all the lovely updates that are now completed inside, as you bask in the beauty of the white, sand beaches and the sparkling, blue water on the Gulf side of the property.

Located in the Holiday Villas III complex, which is right on the Gulf of Mexico and just across the street from the Intercoastal Waterway, this condo provides the best of both worlds. Begin your day by sipping a cup of coffee and watching the serene sunrises from the balcony that overlooks the Intercoastal. The wildlife abounds with shore birds and dolphins. Just steps to a brand new, (rebuilt in Nov, 2016) private fishing pier, try your hand at catching tonight's dinner! If you are in the mood for more activity, head to the west side of the complex. There you will be greeted with a breathtaking expanse of white, sand beach and the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As my guest, you are welcome to enjoy the heated pool overlooking the beach, a picnic area with charcoal grills, shuffleboard and volleyball. The sunsets, best viewed from the beach or the pool area, are absolutely spectacular, Mother Nature's perfect ending to a perfect day.

Inside, you will find that Grandma's Rest has been freshly updated. From the 2 bedrooms, the 2 full bathrooms, the kitchen which is fully stocked with dishes and cookware, and the expansive living and dining space, you will find upscale touches everywhere! You'll be greeted by clean, cool tile floors throughout, sparkling Quartz countertops and ceiling fans in every room. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and queen bed, the guest bedroom has one full size and one twin bed, and the living area has a queen sleeper sofa, plenty of room to comfortably sleep 7 guests. All beds, including the sleeper sofa are brand new. Both bathrooms have a refinished shower/tub combination for washing the sand off your little ones at the end of the day.

Grandma's Rest is comfortable and relaxing. Combined with the captivating details that I have personally selected, you'll find that not only is this the perfect vacation condo, but a place with heart you'll want to make your own, year after year.

Thank you for stopping by! Please check back frequently for updated pictures and availability. I welcome the opportunity to answer any questions you may have.

About Sharyn Schmidt

Hi. My name is Sharyn. I'm so glad you could stop by and take a look at Grandma's Rest, named in honor of my mother.. We always had a dream of owning a beachfront condo on the beautiful, Florida Gulf Coast. Now, that dream is a reality, and I'm blessed to be able to share it with you.

Grandma's Rest is my vacation home as well, and now that I'm a grandma too, I look forward to making long lasting vacation memories here with my own grandchildren.

Sharyn Schmidt purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sharyn Schmidt chose Indian Shores

Indian Shores is a wonderful place for a relaxing, low key, family vacation. Close to St Pete, Clearwater and all the Tampa attractions, it offers something for everyone in the family.

Beachlovers (like me!!!) can spend their day soaking up the sun and swimming in the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico, while those family members that don't want to sunworship can sightsee and take in all the Tampa attractions.

At the end of the day, everyone can come back to Grandma's Rest, have a family meal together and watch the breathtaking sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just stayed at Unit 110 at Holiday Villas III for a few days to celebrate the new year and had a wonderful time! The location is perfect; walking distance to the beach and near the main streets w/ restaurants and shops. The condo itself is beautiful and well decorated with a beach theme! Very comfortable and cozy vibe.. feels like home. Did not have any problem with the appliances. No noise from neighboring units even when sitting on the balcony. Would highly recommend! Definitely coming back before 2017.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! Everything was updated and clean. Having the beach toys and chairs was great so we didn’t have to rent or buy them with no way to get them home. I loved sitting on the porch overlooking the bay. It was also nice to only be one floor up from the pool and beach. The location is ideal because you’re 15 minutes from Johns Pass to the south and 20 minutes from Clearwater to the north. We loved it! Thank you for making us feel at home!

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience couldn't have been better! The property was exactly as described. Our beach was so much less crowded than the beaches to either side of us. Sharyn bought a chair especially for my pregnant wife, and it worked perfectly. Sharyn was attentive to our every need and in regular contact before we ever arrived. The rental office was right on the spot when someone swiped our parking spot, letting us use their spot and immediately tagging the offending vehicle.

This condo fit all our needs. Super fun to be right on the beach and have everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect condo for our visit. Immaculately clean and loads of necessities to make your stay so relaxing. Kitchen even has a big crock pot! Loved the storage closet full of toys, rafts etc. Glad I brought our beach buggy as it was so much easier to bring our stuff to the beach. We did see tons of boats, the drawbridge go up and dolphins in the intracoastal waterway. Traffic really was not that noisy.

Pool is great and always had room to use it. Beach access was easy and there are chair and umbrella set up for a fee if interested.

Make sure to go down to St. Johns Pass and its just fun to drive up and down the main road.

Such a pleasure and so helpful working with Sharyn. She is a big help to you.

Looking forward to returning!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Nancy, for your 5 star review of Grandma's Rest and your kind words concerning me. I firmly believe that booking the vacation should NOT be a chore. The amenities at Holiday Villas III are amazing and the beach really couldn't be any closer. I'm glad you got to enjoy it all! John's Pass is one of my favorite places as well. There is a little something there for everyone. Best of all, I'm glad you loved the condo! It is my vacation home as well and everything from the bedding to the kitchen supplies get updated regularly. I am a stickler for cleanliness so I am especially glad to hear that you found the condo to be immaculate. I do offer a 10% discount off the base rental rate for returning guests, except for certain Spring Season and Holiday weeks. Taxes and admin fees are not included. Thank you again for choosing Grandma's Rest! I hope to see you back soon! Sharyn ~Owner~

Fun, clean, relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed here and it was nothing short of our expectations. My boys, 3 and 4, had so much fun playing at the beach in the morning and then cooling down at the pool in the afternoon! The condo is very kid friendly while still maintaining a warm and relaxing beachy theme. We were able to see dolphins from the patio while drinking coffee in the morning. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. There are lots of neat restaurants nearby as well along with easy shopping for odds and ends. Overall we had an excellent time and plan on returning next year!! We definitely recommend!!!
