Beachfront paradise James & Rhonda K. from Pekin, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 Overall we were extremely satisfied with our experience.The pool was closed the first 3 days we were there but arrangements were made for guests to use neighboring complex pool.We called for maintenance for a minor problem the morning of the day before we left and they never showed up.Complex was very nice and well cared for.
We love it Thelma M. from Fredericton, NB recommends this property.
Stayed for 29 days in November, 2015 This was our fifth year staying at Rick's condo. We love the setting, the location and the people.
Great Location, Beautiful View, Good Amenities Kim C. from Urbanville, IA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 We had a great time at our Beach Cottage condo, although our stay went by too fast. The condo had a great view of the Gulf, was very comfortable and had everything we needed to fully enjoy our stay. The pool and hot tub were very nice and the deck area was spacious and clean. It even had three nice gas grills for steaks and burgers. Florida Lifestyles did a great job. They provided us with everything we needed to access and use our condo. We will definitely be touching base with Florida Lifestyle before booking our next vacation to the Tampa area.
Great Time on the Gulf! A guest from Pickerington, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 Great location, condo in good condition, comfortable/clean furnishings. Clean and well-appointed kitchen. Assigned parking. Quiet building. Minor maintenance issue: light bulbs out in two hallways but not unsafe. Would return.
Great Location Paul T. from Seindon, WS recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Only 2 of us in the condo but big enough for a family with everything you need for a beach holiday. The kitchen was well equipped for those wishing to eat in. Beach chairs, boogie boards and play equipment for the little ones all available. It was nice to sit on the balcony which was shaded most of the day with a cool breeze. Ideal for families with children using the pool all day long. Although the pool closes at dusk this rule was generally ignored so be warned it can get a little noisy up until midnight. The location itself was quiet but only 1.5 miles to Publix supermarket and 5 miles to Johns Pass.
Beach Cottage Was GREAT!! Wayne C. from Albertville, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Ashley was wonderful during the check-in process. Gave some great advice on using Groupon and some great places to eat in the area. The condo was super and well stocked with everything you could need. Highly recommend!!
A little untidy Stephanie B. from Monrovia, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 It was nice upon arrival. Parking garage is very tiny! Our SUV wouldn't fit at all!! The bird sanctuary next store is gross and smells horrible!! The sheets on the bed where stained I ended up washing them and it came right out... The whirl pool tub jets where gross I took pictures to show them! Other than that everything was as described. Oh the hot water heater I guess was out and all of a sudden on our last day it was an emergency and needed to be fixed! We had no clue it was leaking the whole time we where there and obviously previous to our arrival but all of a sudden "emergency" and inconvienced our last day!! Other than that everything was a described. My family did enjoy our time there.
great, relaxing vacation spot Marsha B. from Springfield, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 This condo offered a Great, relaxing stay for our family of 4. The condo was clean and in good repair, as was the entire complex. The pool deck area was very large, offering plenty of loungers, tables and grill availability. Our children are in college and this complex offered the nice pool and spa area or quick access to the beach. The balcony overlooked the pool area, but provided a nice view of the beach. The kitchen was well equipped and provided most things needed for preparing meals. We also appreciated the washer/dryer. Indian Shores seemed a little more family oriented and less crowded which was nice. The only thing that was a bit of a challenge - was that keys were required for entry and exit of the complex (to the beach). Although I understand the security this provides, it was often difficult when people were coming and going to the beach at different times. And I was a little dissapointed that the only exit to the beach was from the parking garage - however we very much enjoyed are stay at Beach Cottage.
Good Place for the price! Jeff K. from Jackson, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 2nd year in a row we stayed here. Good location for a 2 bedroom condo. Would stay again. This condo is due for a small update. Replacing the carpet and new towel racks in master bath are needed.
Best trip ever! A guest from Elm Grove, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in January, 2015 We rented this property for two weeks in February. It was amazing. Great view from balcony, as well as the bedroom. Everything was clean and comfortable. Updated kitchen, big screen TV in living room. We loved it so much that we tried to rent it again for next year at the same time, and it was already booked. So, we found a place down the road because we liked the location so well. Very close to Tampa airport, Clearwater Beach and Madiera Beach. If I HAD to point out some issues: no hair dryer (i had to go buy one), Bathrooms could use updating, and too many dirty smudges on doors and white woodwork (which I took care of with a soapy sponge.). Those were minor issues which did not affect the enjoyability of our trip at all.
2015 rental of beach cottage 1 - 1413 A guest from Lincolnshire, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 33 days in December, 2014 Loved the complex, condo was lacking in some important amenities which were never provided, though we notified the owner and Florida Lifestyles
What a great beach vacation! Missy K. from Fond du Luc, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in December, 2014 We had a great experience. All the comforts of home were in the condo. Plenty of room for two adults and 3 kids. There was nothing that was lacking. Plenty of beach toys, bedding, pillows, and anything else one would need. The view was spectacular, we were close to the elevator and the parking spot was just steps from the door. I highly recommend this condo, in fact I wish we didn't have to leave.
Indian Shores Florida A guest from West Paducah, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 The lady at the rental place was very nice and helpful with restaurants, trolley, etc. Rick, the property owner, was very nice and prompt.
Great rental! Jeannie H. from Lawenceville, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 We had a great time at the condo. The condo itself was perfect for us, spacious, comfortable, and well kept. Having a washer and dryer in the condo was a huge benefit! Also, the location is perfect, tons of restaurants nearby, a few miles from John's Pass shopping, and close to lots of attractions. We went kayaking down the Weeki Wachee Springs and saw manatee! Beautiful!
Home Away from Home A guest from Upper Tantallon, NS recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in April, 2014 This was our 2nd visit to the condo. It is in excellent condition and kept up wonderfully by the owners. Everything about our vacation was great and we didn't want to leave. Will be back next year.
Spring break 2014 Jennifer D. from Russiaville, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 My family and I had an amazing time at your home. From the first moment we arrived, we were pleased with the environment and cleanliness of the condo! Since I am a bit of a clean freak myself, I was very comfortable. The master bedroom was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. I was particularly pleased with the fact that almost everything we needed was at our finger tips, including boogie boards, beach toys for my child, and chairs for the beach. The pool was perfect and not cold! The weather in this area was fantastic! Rick the owner sent us an email before we left wishing us a safe trip! This told us a lot about his character. We have booked this condo for next year. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! The Duke Family in Indiana
Feb. 13, thru March 22, 2014 Jim&Nancy L. from Loudon, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 36 days in February, 2014 We enjoyed our visit to this condo and have plans to revisit again next year. Location is great for all the reasons that one goes to the beach. Rick is very easy to work with and always returned our emails quickly.Would recommend this condo.
Wonderful location to relax Ronald & Gabriele B. from Ebersberg, XX recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in January, 2014 We had a very pleasant stay, enjoyed the neat and tidy patio with BBQ and pool and were lucky to watch dolphins from the beach. It was great having been there.
Super Stay at Beach Cottage Kendra W. from Herscher, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 The condo was very nice, spacious and accomodating. The pool and beach areas were very nice also. Would recommend this to a friend and would stay again.
Relaxation! Thelma M. from Fredericton, NB recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in November, 2013 This is the third year we have stayed in1413 and hopefully will able to continue for many years to come. Rick is extremely easy to deal with, the Beach Cottages are in an ideal location and we feel the complex is just the right size. Rick and Randy are going to be doing some renos this month and we will be looking forward to the changes next November. The sunsets from the balcony are amazing and the surf lulls you to sleep! Watching the various types of birds fly overhead and diving for food; keeping an ever watchful eye out for dolphins swimming by and seeing the bridge open to allow boats to continue their voyage on the intracoastal are some of our favorite pass times. Lots of restaurants, golfing and shopping to be had nearby as well. Overall, we can't think of a better way to spend the month of November! The downside is coming home and seeing a different kind of "white" outside our patio door as opposed to the white sand we see from the balcony of 1413. Thanks Rick for sharing your home with us!!!!
The Sunset View Jean S. from Westerly, RI recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in October, 2013 Always nice to stay at this unit, 2nd yr. Perfect location to everythin. The pool and beach are great. Love staying here.
Perfect vacation and location! Nasser N. from Kissimmee, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 My family and I had a very pleasant stay at Beach Cottage. Transaction was smooth and property managements were very courteous. Looking forward to spend more time at this place. Btw, the deposit for the facility was credited back to my account in a timely manner, no games whatsoever. Thank you and looking forward to come back again!
Had a great stay! Nancy L. from Orlando, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 Beach cottage 1413 was great for us. Very spacious and loved the split plan set up. View and balcony was amazing. Location was great! Kitchen was remodeled, loved the granite and new appliances. The carpet does need to be replaced, but it seemed that after the work done in the kitchen, that is probably next on the list. Since we had two little ones, it was ok, we didn't have to worry too much. Great high chair and beach chairs were handy!Hope to come back again!

Our week was perfect--we're looking forward to returning!

Great Sunsets Jerry B. from Sterling Heights, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 29 days in February, 2013 Elevator out when we arrived and had to make many trip to 4th floor to unload vehicle. Elevator was broke down 6 times in first two weeks of stay. Door lock was hard to use.Repairman could not even open the door with master key. Carpet needed cleaning and stretching, which was mentioned to owner. Enjoyed the view, sunsets, pool area, great maintenance of project overall and have booked to return to Beach Cottage I next year. Would have re-rented same unit, however it was taken.
January escape from cold midwest A guest from Peoria, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in January, 2013 We had a very enjoyable stay for two weeks in January. The heated pool and hot tub were the highlight of our stay. I walked 4 miles on the beach daily. The sun was shining every day but one. A great time for my wife and me.
Beautiful location Kara F. from Chicago, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in January, 2013 Loved waking up to the ocean front view. Nights were relaxing listening to the sounds of the wave just after watching the beautiful sunset. What a great vacation! Clean with a very comfy master bed!! Must stay spot!!

Fabulous vacation at Beach Cottages 1413 Emidio I. from Vaughan, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 21 days in August, 2012 I am very impressed with the Beach Cottages 1413 condo we rented. We stayed for three weeks in August of 2012 and it was great. This is our fourth annual visit to this unit and every year we are very satisfied. The condo is a huge two bedroom unit, clean, up to date, well maintained and lots of extras like beach toys, books and balcony furniture. The large television in the living room is a nice feature as well as free wifi and phone calls. The view of the gulf and the pool is excellent. Complex is good and well maintained. Loved the heated pool, hot tub, gas grills and quick access to the beach. Had good restaurants nearby. Would recommend this condo to anyone. Price was very reasonable. The management is friendly and accessible during your stay. We are planning to spend our vacation here again in the future.
A few things needed attention but all in it was "very: nice. Robert D. from Ocala, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 Hope to return in the not two distant future. Rick, you really should think about putting at least a double bed in the 2nd bedroom for when there are two adult couples. And for that matter even when there are kid involved as it would givebthat room an extra bed with a double and a twin. We took a look at it and a little reorganization of the dresser(s) would make it work. And besides how much time is spent in the bedroom?? Only to sleep. Thanks again,
Great value, Roomy, homelike, ocean front condo. George&Deborah W. from Maumee, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Arrived late Sun. due to our flight. Check in was easy and parking for this condo was just outside the front entrance. I have a bad knee and was happy to see there were elevators and easy access to all areas of the complex. The condo was on the 4th floor towards the back, but the view was still amazing. The deck was roomy and had a table and several chairs to comfortably sit our entire family. Condo was very clean and although it showed it's age (carpet, wallpaper and paint)it had a large washer/dryer, updated beautiful kitchen with all newer appliances, lots of closets and linen provided. Air conditioning worked great. Extra's including beach toys and chairs,radios etc. Overall, very clean, comfortable, roomy and felt like home. Master had a nice king bed. Jacuzzi tub was a little difficult to get into but always had plenty of hot water. TV's in every room but didn't spend much time watching them. Many things to do in area! Salt water pool was nice for the hot sunny days. Ocean within feet.. even better! Private,locked community.. so always need keys with you, even on beach. Would recommend without hesitation and would stay there again. Great value.
Indian Shores 2012 A guest from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 A fair amount of rain did not diminish our enjoyment of the views, the ocean and especially the many birds. This very large condo was comfortable and well equipped for our stay. The ocean was warm and very inviting. Would stay again anytime.
Indian Shores Vacation Brian H. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property.

Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - it was everything we wanted and more! We would definitely like to return for another vacation and stay in this comfortable condo again.
Great Florida Vacation Paula J. from Onsted, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 My family and I totally enjoyed our rental experience. We have two young children and staying in the condo was perfect for us and them. They had their own space to play or just relax and watch the Disney Channel. We all loved having the pool, we spent lots of time in it, especially the kids. The pool was great for the number of people at the complex durng our stay but I can't imgaine if the complex was full, there would have been major crowding. We loved having a full kitchen. We were able to enjoy the balcony for all of our meals. We also liked having the grills to make my awesome burgers. We can't wait until we are able to come and enjoy the Florida sun and the Gulf again. Next time I hope no tropical storm decides to visit the gulf coast when we visit. All in all great vacation.
