About the property

**Summer is around the corner and that means 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.

This Place is Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I loved Grandma's Rest so much, I've already booked it for 2019! Sharyn, the owner, is the best owner ever. If you need to communicate with her, she is on it, immediately, and such a nice person. The condo is nicely furnished with many added touches such as a makeup mirror for the ladies, and drawer organizers. The property is very well maintained and clean, and I have recommended it to others. There are so many good restaurants up and down Gulf. Blvd., Caddy's Pub, Salt Rock, Wahoo's and, Havana Harry's in Largo - it is a must. Cannot wait until next year!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you, Paula, so much for your awesome 5 star review of Grandma's Rest. I'm excited to have you as a returning guest in 2019 as well! I have been to most of those restaurants as well and I love Caddys and Salt Rock. I would also add the SeaBreeze Island Grill in Reddington Beach to the list. Please note that returning guests, like Paula, get 10% off the base rental rate on their next visit with the exception of certain Spring Season weeks and Holidays. Tax and administrative fees are not included. Thank you again for choosing Grandma's Rest! See you next year! Sharyn

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Grandma's Rest. Everything went very smoothly. From the beginning of our planning, everyone was helpful and informative. We appreciated the updates before our trip and the check-in and check-out went great.

We enjoyed our stay in Condo 110. It had everything we needed for our week stay. We love coming to Indian Shores. It is a very quiet and calm area, just what we are looking for in a vacation. Thank you for everything.

Great condo and location

  • 5 of 5

Grandma's rest is a great place. It was exactly as described. Sharyn was wonderful and responded to all of my many emails. Unfortunately the weather was quite cold so we didn't sit out on the balcony as much as I expected but the sunrise view was spectacular. The pool was nice and warm and the beach was gorgeous. Thank you!

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant and comfortable condo. there is everything one could possible need thoughout a vacation. Fully equipped kitchen, lots of room in the living and dining room. 2 good sized bedrooms one with a complete bathroom. Large spacious outside covered deck with patio table overlooking the intercoastal waterway. We saw several dolphins swimming by. Pool and beach right in back. and the managers were always very helpful. We all loved our week there and would return here rather than looking elsewhere. A wonderful vacation rental.
