Thanks for the review. You just left and seems you must of written this on your way home. Never-the-less it tells us that your really enjoyed your recent stay, as we enjoyed having you and yours. Hope to see you again, and again, and even again. As a Chicago guy, I enjoy having folks from Chicago stay with us. The thing to remember down here is that the water is to the west while in Chicago the water is to the east. However here or there, most things are the same. God Bless, Vic & Susan

The Beach Cottage in Indian Shores, Fl. is a beautiful place for a family vaca. I was lucky enough to come across Susan & Vic's listing! Beautiful condo, felt like home when you walk in and that's a nice feeling. The condo, on the 4th floor, #1411, is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom. *Master bedroom has a King size bed with an en-suite master bath. With tub and shower. Has sliding glass doors leading from master to balcony. AWESOME VIEW!!!! *2nd bedroom has two twin size beds. The condo also consist of a very nice size kitchen. Table in kitchen. Washer and dryer in condo. You have a dining room table and a 3-4 seat bar off the kitchen. Nice size living room with sliding glass doors leading to your oceanfront balcony. The views from the balcony are something else! I have so so many GORGEOUS sunset pictures from that balcony. Crazy how the same sunset can turn the sky and clouds so many different colors before going down completely! And continues to change til completely dark. It's really beautful!! The condo is very well stocked! Anything you would need is already there for you to use. There is more than enough room for everyone! The Beach Cottage has a great pool and hot tub area. Really big pool deck to lay out. 3 gas grills located on the pool deck for your use. And tables with unbrellas on deck as well if you want to eat out side. Best pool deck I have seen in a while! Nice how it is up on first floor, you don't have to worry about sand and stuff blowing into the pool. Or into your food while you are cooking out!! Lol. You can't go wrong with renting this condo!! It's a wonderful place. Very comfy, awesome views, killer master bed too! I slept so well in that bed!! The owners,(Susan and Victor Boettle) are the most awesome owners and just great people all together!! The owners and the view are really what makes this condo so special. Susan and Vic make you feel so welcome. And are the type of people that would do whatever it takes to make you feel at home. Thank you Susan & Vic for being such awesome people and staying true!! It was a pleasure for us to rent from you. But even more of a pleasure to have gotten to meet you!! Thank you for our chance to make such great memories!!**If you get the chance to rent this condo,(The Beach Cottage #1, #1411), I promise you won't regret it!!

You got the detail girlfriend and thank you for all of the time it must have taken you to do this GREAT REVIEW. If we were going to write our own review we could not have said any better than you did. You and your family are so very SPECIAL, that it does not seem nice enough to just say THANKS, but never-the-less, thanks. Per your instructions we have rolled-over your deposit to July/August of next year and look forward to seeing you and yours then. Very Warm Regards, Vic & Susan
