The Peach on the Beach is a weekly 2/br-2/ba Direct Gulf unit in a complex called the BEACH PALMS. The unit is on the Top floor, of five, with CLEAR views, up and down the entire BEACH, from, what would be YOUR own very private balcony. The PEACH ON THE BEACH is only one of four units, on the TOP floor/of five floors, in the entire building, which faces directly to the West, and so, the Gulf on Mexico. The view of the Gulf of Mexico, is one of the biggest things that you desire on your visit to Florida, right? And, how can you do better, than to have it right out in front of you. The PEACH is updated, upscale & CLEAN, with a garage, with beach toys too. We have just finished putting in a new tray ceiling in the kitchen and added LED lighting. At the same time, we replaced our dining room chandelier and the results are spectacular. Also, we have added new micro-fiber furniture in the living room, including a very comfortable chaise lounge. When you walk into the "PEACH" you will appreciate the open feeling that the 10 foot ceilings provide. The NEW full floor to ceiling drapes supply a feeling of warmth in the unit. Visitors rave about how comfortable our king sized bed is in the master bedroom. The master bedroom, bathroom offers a SEPARATE tub and walk-in shower. Also, the walk-in closet seems to be greatly appreciated, by many of our visitors. Finally, new ceiling fans and also, new twin beds in the second bedroom. Free wifi, of course.
Flash !!! This condo is right out there and you will love that DIRECT Gulf of Mexico "top" view in all directions. You will find this condo CLEAN, as we do prepare it ourselves. This is a VERY important point and overlooked by many first time visitors.
Our Beach Palms penthouse condo is located in/on the barrier island town of Indian Shores, FL. with Clearwater Beach to the North and St Pete Beach to the South. This CLEAN and nicely DECORATED condo offers two bedrooms with a king in the master and twins in the second and is located in a five story (top-floor) mid-rise upscale building DIRECTLY on the BEACH with glass elevators, pool(heated), garage and, as you might guess, fantastic views and sunsets.
Beach Palms until recently was known as Beach Cottage III with a reputation for being one of the very best WEEKLY rental buildings in the area. Look up and down the white sandy beach from the living room balcony and listen to the waves. You can almost TOUCH the water. Yes, this is your Florida dream vacation hideaway! The condo is decorator furnished, immaculate, and has a fully-equipped kitchen with a washer and dryer.
A Home AWAY from Home: Amenities: Free WiFi, with HD TV in living room and cable in the master and guest bedrooms. Ten foot ceilings, Drapes ( brand NEW), Air conditioning (brand new system), flat screen TV (3), Stereo, Pool (heated in season), Microwave, A Dishwasher, Full kitchen, new micro-wave and new Washer, Dryer, No pets allowed, Linens provided, Cookware and utensils provided, Gas BBQ, Charcoal BBQ, Garage, Heated pool (In October '16 the entire heated pool was REDONE and so is very pleasing to the eye), Glass elevators (2), Hurricane shutters. Recently we added free WiFi, along with digital TV reception in the living room and both bedrooms. Recently, we added NEW furniture in the Living Room. Our garage has been up-graded too. The floor has been power washed and the entire garage has been painted with new base-boards added. So, now, not only is the condo (itself) CLEAN and upgraded, but the garage, as well.
We TRY HARD to please our visitors. Please take the time to read our testimonials. After your stay in our VERY upscale Beachfront Condo we would encourage you to add your comments. How do you beat a TOP FLOOR / DIRECT GULF FRONT unit, like this one ??? Yes, a true 'PEACH on the BEACH'. Kindly remember that we are happy and willing to answer any and all questions. Just CALL seven- two- seven / five-nine-five / five- seven--two-seven , evenings best.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Clean and stocked with anything you need for a vacation. Garage with items for use at pool or on the beach, The owners are like your friend when you meet Susan upon checking in. The feeling of belonging in a new place instead of feeling out of place,,,What a wonderful place to stay on vacation.
We've stayed in three different units at Beach Palms and this one was by far the best! The view was fabulous. The beds were comfortable. It was completely outfitted with everything we could possibly have needed from linens to kitchen items to beach toys. Very nice and responsive owners. It was a wonderful experience overall and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable stay in Indian Shores!
If the size of this condo fits your needs, your search is over! I have been vacationing on the Gulf Coast for many years and this rental is by far the nicest, cleanest, most well appointed "peach" on the beach that I have ever had the pleasure of calling "home" for a week. Susan was absolutely precious and made sure that we were taken care of after two days of a travelling nightmare with Allegiant. Thank you Susan, your hospitality was impressive and will not be forgotten. This unit is directly on the beautiful coast, conveniently located to restaurants and shopping, and the perfect oasis for your vacation. I LOVED the garage space for the car and the wonderful assortment of beach toys and necessities that were available for use with the condo. You literally don't need to worry about a thing--it's all here. Thank you Vic and Susan we certainly hope to return soon.
This was our 3rd time at this condo, That's says it all, great position, spacious, well fitted out and maintained. An absolute dream of a Holiday Condo. Look no Further you will not find better.
We stayed at "Peach on the Beach" for a week.The place is immaculate and very tastefully set up. Susan is super-organized and the smallest of our needs were met. The unit is exceptionally clean and has an incredible view. Everything - (linen, cutlery, paper towels, dishes, boxes, wrapping sheets etc) is provided and you really need not worry about anything. Plus, it is literally 3-4mins drive to the nearest grocery store and pharmacy.
We made full use of the beach accessories which were available for our use in the garage.
The heated pool is clean and well maintained. While we were there, there was a company doing their routine tests on the water quality and such. Very impressive.
The check-out process was as smooth as the less than two weeks, i even got my deposit back. Everything was professionally handled and it made our stay very memorable.
Believe me - you will never go wrong with this selection. Thanks a ton, Susan and Vic.
What a great vacation, what a fantastic condo - I really don't know how to start this review...
Should I tell you about the cleanest place at the beach (from Clearwater Beach to St.Pete Beach!), the fantastic view from the balcony, the perfect equipt condo, the charming Hosts, the perfect value, the comfort of a private garage...
Just a few words as a summary: We'll be back next year and we count the months.
This is one of the nicest condos on the Florida Gulf Coast that we have ever experienced. Susan was a great host and her pride in her condo was very evident. The unit is ultra clean, well furnished, extremely comfortable and very well organized, and made the entire stay very pleasurable. Great location, great beach and the use of a garage for the car was an added bonus!
My wife and I have been coming to the Gulf Coast of Florida for 5 years now attending spring training games.We were staying at different condos until last year when we found Susan and Vic's "Peach on the Beach". We did it again this year because this is the best. The condo is immaculate,well equipped, spacious and confortable. Everything you will ever need is there. The view from the balcony of the Gulf is to die for. Susan met us when we arrived and after only staying here last year, we felt like we were old friends. Her pride for her property is evident. We will be coming back again and again. Thank you Susan and Vic.
It is clear from the moment you meet Susan that she cares about your experience. There is such pride in ownership and this is obvious in the well equipped and immaculate condo. The setting is beautiful and the complex and grounds well maintained. There is such care in ensuring that you have everything you need for a wonderful vacation and the condo is so clean and cared for that you truly want to care for it as if it is your own home. We not only rebooked for next year but I feel that I have also gained a new friend in Susan. My husband and I cannot wait until next year! Ray and Colleen
My husband and I have been coming to Florida's Gulf Coast for the past five years, each time staying in a condo at different locations. By far, Vic and Susan's Peach on the Beach was the BEST! When we arrived, we were greeted by Susan, whose bubbly personality and obvious pride in her condo made us feel very welcome. The condo was immaculate, spacious, well equipped, and very comfortable. We enjoyed our morning coffee each day on the balcony overlooking a wide, beautiful Gulf beach. Cabanas were available for a reasonable fee which made sitting on the beach a true delight. The comfortable beds and pillows plus the sounds of the surf made for a wonderful night's sleep. We had never stayed anywhere with a garage, so having a designated place to park was a real plus. We also really appreciated having lots of brochures and suggestions for dining, shopping and things to do and see. The Peach on the Beach was so convenient to everything! Our two week stay ended much to quickly, but it was our best yet!
Agree with all the superlatives most reviewers have used to describe this property. The garage parking seems underrated or not mentioned by most. It was great to not have to get into a car which had baked in the hot Florida sun for hours. The available shopping carts by the garage elevator were very helpful when returning from a trip to Publix and ABC!
We'll be back for sure!
The views from this condo were magnificent. Everything we needed was provided. Susan was so nice to deal with, very friendly! The garage parking was really not needed but came with the unit (and the charge for it). Condo overall very nice, clean and modern. Thank you Susan.
We returned again this year (as always!) to our home from home at the Peach on the Beach. I cannot rate this condo highly enough, we should have a 6 star rating. Always a joy to rent from Vic and Susan, we just call them when we are on the causeway from Tampa and they are there at the condo to meet us with their smiling faces.
Our 5th year and everything is perfect!
Great place and location, Cant wait to go back!
Our family of 4 just finished a great week at Peach on the Beach! Susan was wonderful to work with! The condo was clean and gave us everything we needed. We loved being right on the beach and the view from the condo was amazing! The kids are already asking when we can go back!
Where do I start? We just returned from the "Peach on the Beach" condo and we had a fantastic time!
We have never rented a condo for a week long stay, but we will definitely do so again! Susan made the process very simple and smooth. She greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the place and answered any questions we had. We really appreciate the personal touch. The condo is amazing and exactly as described. Everything you could want or need is here, and it is was VERY clean. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. No problem catching some Z's here! The view is incredible and you can watch the sunset from the balcony or take a short walk down to the beach and watch from there.
The ocean is very close to the pool, no long hikes across hot sand. The beach is clean and sand is powder-soft.
The condo is in a great location, close to many good restaurants, we did not have a bad meal anyplace we went. We had Clearwater to the north, where we went to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. And St. Petersburg is to the south where we took a boat ride to Shell key for the day. We also fished one day off a dock at a local park, very close to the condo and visited the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary which is within walking distance.
Thank you Susan and Vic for opening your lovely condo to us. We had a wonderful time and will be back!
This was our first experience renting a condo or anything like that in Florida hard to express how wonderful of experience we had we needed to buy or bring nothing other than our swimsuits. The owners Susan and Vic were awesome. We will definitely be doing this again at the same place . Thanks Vic and Sue for everything you did .
This is a fantastic place to vacation. This was our first time to this area and we LOVED it!! The condo is clean and beautiful. The view from the balcony is breath taking especially at sunset. There are many restaurants, stores and activities close by. Susan is an absolute sweetheart and a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be renting from her and Victor again!
Great condo! Very clean! Wonderful views!
Susan is great to rent from. They have so much you may want or need. No need to bring much.
We would stay here again!!!
My family and I had the pleasure of staying at The Peach on the Beach and I must say the name is perfect for this place. The view from the balcony was FANTASTIC, the condo was nicely furnished, comfortable, fully equipped and spotless. The location was ideal, lots of great restaurants to choose from and plenty of things to do. Susan was a joy from the first time I spoke with her, she contacted me several times prior to our arrival and was there to welcome us when we arrived, our deposit was refunded promptly. LOVED IT!!! Thanks Susan & Vic.
My family and I just returned home from this AMAZING condo. This is the second time we have stayed in this condo,the first time was in 2005. It was our 7 year-old daughter's first time at the Ocean and she LOVED it! There are plenty of things to do for people of all ages within a short drive of the condo.Susan has a big book she has put together of local restaurants and attractions which was very helpful.We enjoyed Clearwater Marine Aquarium(where you can see Winter and Hope from Dolphin Tale 1&2).We also enjoyed Honeymoon Island,which is a great place to look for shells and view wildlife. The Bird Sanctuary right next door to the condo is also wonderful place to visit.While all these places are a nice bonus the best attraction is the beautiful beach .We spent most of our time out on the beach, shell hunting in the morning, sunbathing in the afternoon by the pool, watching the beautiful sunset for the balcony and crab hunting on the beach at night. We are so thankful and blessed we have gotten to know Susan and Victor, they are definitely a ray of sunshine and make the world a more beautiful place. Amazing people to work with and make your trip effortless. You will not find a better place to stay,We can't wait to come back! Blessings!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Susan and Victor's Peach on the Beach condo in Indian Shores. The unit is located on a beautiful beach with easy access to the water. The view from the unit's balcony is also picture perfect. The unit is comfortable and welcoming and is sure to make your vacation get-a-way relaxing and carefree. My wife and I have stayed in Sand Key and Clearwater Beach numerous times over the past 30 plus years and we honestly think the beach at Indian Shores is much nicer, quieter and more family friendly. We hope to visit again!

4th yr FANTASTIC- loved, clean, comfy beds- over new well-to-do updates!!!
2021 will be our 5th year with Susan & Vic, and we, like most people want new features in a vacation condo but .....YOU WILL NEVER REGRET STAYING HERE! Susan cleans a lot herself and checks on those who clean also....she's very, VERY adamant about her condo being just right for us.You can read review after review telling great things about them, the condo and reasons to stay; bottom line is still simply that you will not find a place any cleaner, well appointed and loved than this one. Yes, they use regular mail, telephone conversation and meet you upon arrival but years of this is why it's still a home we want to come back to! Looking forward to our June anniversary trip #5 at condo, 38 years together! Sherry & Gary Davenport Florida

WOW !!!! Susan is really SOMETHING. As her husband, I know exactly what you mean. Nothing is more important to her than CLEAN and A GREAT rental condo for YOU, on arrival. Now to your VERY kind review. Thank you so very much for your kind and thoughtful review. Yes, after 5 years of your visits we seemed to have worked out a win-win vacation destination. People tend to make fun of us for only working via the telephone, but you know in works out well, in the long run.
We return annually to this beautiful condo located right on the Gulf Coast! It has a great location, is exceptionally clean, and we always have great communication with the owners, Vic & Susan, who have guided us with great recommendations about the area. Words just cannot describe the beauty of the sunsets over the Gulf every evening from the patio of this top floor unit! The unit is in a secure area and has great access to WiFi & multiple TV channels available. We love this place!

We wish to thank you for taking such good care of our PEACH, year after year. You ended your review with "We love this place" and again, we want you to know that "We enjoy having you." Very WARM Regards, Vic & Susan
Great location and condo!
We had a lovely time at Peach on the Beach. The unit was very clean and quiet. We so enjoyed sitting on the balcony everyday watching and listening to the ocean. The sand is just steps away which makes it convenient to come and go to the beach. Plenty of beach towels so no need to pack any! Views of the sunset each night were amazing. Susan and Vic are easy to communicate with. We hope to be able to return for a repeat visit in the future.

My husband and I stayed at this condo for almost two weeks in December. It has everything you need! And it sits front and center to the beach. You seriously cannot beat the view.

What a wonderful week at “Peach on the Beach”
When previously made plans were uprooted due to Hurricane Sally, I found myself needing to find a great place in an area unknown to me in just one day. What luck that I happened across this place! Susan is the definition of hospitality and service - qualities that you just do not find booking with large companies. She was prompt in responding to the initial inquiry of the condo - with a phone call! She introduced herself and gave a quick rundown of the condo and the town and ensured us it was a good area and quite important during these times - a very clean place to visit. We made the arrangements and set out the next day. Susan called and checked on us on our way down and made alternate plans to get us into the condo. Normally she meets you at check in but due to an accident on our way down, we were late coming in. With her thorough instructions we got in with no issues and opened the door to a lovely, comfortable and clean condo. The pictures really don’t do it justice for how open and bright it really is. There are plenty of bath and beach towels, all the utensils you can need, bath items you may forget and plenty of beach amenities in your own personal garage! When Susan tells you that you can just pack your bathing suit and leave the rest behind, she means it! The bed is firm but comfy, you have 2 bathrooms and 3 showers and plenty of room to spread out. The view is amazing from the balcony and the beach is absolutely wonderful. It wasn’t crowded at all and there are plenty of things to do in the area. The building itself felt very safe and secure as well. All in all it was a wonderful trip and Susan was great. When we met you could see she was smiling, even behind her mask. And how many times has the condo owner ever called you after your trip, to make sure you made it home ok? Seriously, don’t miss out on this little gem in Indian Shores!

Hi Hali, What a GREAT REVIEW and we thank you so VERY much for it. We tell people so many times about our Peach on the Beach and we can even hear them" yawn" on the phone. Like they have heard this all before and everyone says nice things on the phone or on the net about their place. Thus, it is so refreshing to hear all those GREAT words and ideas from a super nice "gem" like you. So, you can tell that we just can't wait for your next visit to the PEACH ON THE BEACH. Soon, we HOPE.
We had the most incredible week in Susan and Vic’s condo! The view from the balcony took our breath away! Very comfortable seating and you can even have your meals out on the balcony, our favorite hang out spot in this amazing condo! Everything was very clean and Susan definitely went the extra mile to make sure our stay was as comfortable as could be. Having interaction with the owners was another highlight, Susan was there to personally greet as on arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. No need to worry about beach chairs, umbrellas or anything else beachwise, it’s all there. This is really the ultimate beach condo for a vacation with the most charming hostess. We loved it and will definitely be back!

You folks were GREAT and it was an honor and a pleasure to have you stay in our PEACH on the BEACH. We do, indeed, wish that you make a return visit and the sooner the better. Meanwhile, we continue our efforts to make the Peach even bigger and better. Have a great year and thanks for taking the time to do this review.
Wow! This condo truly is a peach and so is Susan. She is a delight. She was there to greet us and give us helpful hints for our week's stay. The decor is so pretty and every thing you could possibly need for a comfy stay is included, including a washer and dryer. The layout and spaciousness of the condo are excellent. It is a split bedroom plan, which is nice for privacy. It is sparkling clean.The view of the gulf in the morning, as well as at sunset, from the roomy balcony and from the master bedroom, is spectacular. Many varieties of birds are there in the morning, searching in the sand for breakfast or riding the waves and fishing.The garage and beach paraphernalia are definitely a plus. We also found it worthwhile to rent the cushioned, adjustable benches and umbrella for the entire week discount.You can't go wrong with this condo. The location is excellent and we asked where the locals eat. We had fabulous seafood at The Conch Republic and Salt Rock Grill.

Wonderful Experience at Indian Shores
Susan goes above and beyond to ensure the condo is clean and sanitized before your visit. They provide all essentials for your stay. (We didn't lack anything.) Each morning we enjoyed views of the ocean from our balcony. A few times during our visit we caught a glimpse of dolphins or manatees swimming by the condo. We also enjoyed seeing different bird species interacting on the shore or out in the ocean. During our stay the weather was perfect, so we were able to explore beach life everyday! We recommend dining at Sea Salt Grill or The Conch Republic Grill which are close by the condo. (There are several other great places to eat nearby.) Susan and Vic are quick to respond to any concerns/needs. Thanks Susan and Vic for providing everything and making our stay enjoyable! We hope to be back next year.

What a JOY !!! to have your group. Your family gives new meaning to the words "GREAT PEOPLE" and yes, we too hope you will return to the Peach on the Beach next year and many years after, as well. God Bless, and Warm Regards, Vic & Susan
Stayed here last week for family vacation. The condo was comfortable and beautifully decorated and most importantly CLEAN ! probably the cleanest unit we’ve ever stayed in. It’s easy to tell the owner takes great pride in this unit. The garage full of toys and beach gear was a plus . So nice not to have to drag sandy toys and chairs up to the room after playing on the beach . The views are simply amazing and the condo has a great location. It’s close to everything. Susan was there to greet us upon check in and made sure we had everything we needed for a great vacation.

WE COULD NOT HAVE WRITTEN A BETTER REVIEW. Thank you so very much !!! We too enjoyed having you and yours. As you certainly know, you have a terrific family and were a joy to have. We certainly hope that you will chose to visit the PEACH ON THE BEACH again in the future.
Our family keeps coming back to this Beach Palms "topview" condo. The unit is immaculate, spacious, and fully stocked with everything a family would need. The property is safe and secure, and everything is clean and well-maintained. The beach is beautiful. The direct Gulf-front views from the balcony are amazing, especially the gorgeous sunsets! The location is walking-distance to several restaurants/ bars, an ice-cream/candy shop and the Seabird Sanctuary. Another delightful vacation in Indian Shores. Thank you Susan & Vic!

Here we are"AGAIN"at the "Peach on the Beach"
Coming from the winter of Penna to the sun and fun of the west coast of Florida. 85/87 degrees and sun the whole time we are here. The Peach on the beach is the best.The sunsets are to die for, viewing them from your own top floor balcony. The white sand and the waves touching the beach of the gulf is so relaxing. The condo itself is amazing Very clean and well organized... Everything you need for your vacation is there. You can travel light because the condo is completely stocked with everything for your stay. The private / personal garage is a plus. Inside you will find everything for the beach from floats to beach chairs.You never have to worry about forgetting anything because the condo has it all. If you are not a beach person and who isn't, there is a private pool with a outdoor grill. Susan met us upon our arrival and as always she makes you feel like family. From the looks of the condo inside its evident that Susan and Vic take pride in their property. 5 Star Rating... This is our 5th year staying at the."Peach" and we will be back for season #6 and beyond. Thanks again Susan and Vic

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST !!!! Year after year we enjoy having you.
Everything was "Peachy"!
Wow! What a wonderful location and view of the beach! We enjoyed the cleanliness of Unit 506 and found it to be well stocked with necessary items - bath towels, wash rags, dishes, etc. You can tell that the owners take pride in maintaining this property. Susan went way out of her way to assist us with a trip complication that we created for ourselves. It is nice to have a pool on the premises that was very convenient. We hope to return soon to this "Peach on the Beach" for another relaxing getaway!

THANKS, and have a GREAT YEAR. Warm Regards, Vic & Susan
Beautiful well equiped condo very very clean.
We booked Beach Palms Penthouse condo on Indian Shores Beach FL for our Christmas vacation with family. The location of this condo was easy to find very clean and well equipped. Susan and Victor keep this condo in the best of shape. Very comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed walking on the Beach and visited Johns Pass Village, Seabird Sanctuary, and numerous restaurants in the area. This condo is quiet, appliances include a washer and dryer and every small appliance you would ever need for the days you want to stay in and cook a meal. We would definitely recommend renting this condo. Thank you Susan and Vuictor for a memorable vacation condo.

Dear Friend, Fran, Thank you for your kind review. So glad that you enjoyed the condo and all the great activities in the area. See you soon!!!! Susan
Peach of the beach condo rental was above and beyond all you will need in a comfortable stay at the beach. Owners Susan & Vic do a fantastic job at providing all your needs in this immaculate and fully equipped condo. Indian Shores is located in an uncommercialized perfect area of the Gulf coast just below Clearwater, FL.......If you want a lovely atmosphere, relaxation and peace and quiet, then this is the lace and the condo!!! Also the area is so quiet and the building is totally safe. Locked entrances down to the restrooms, beach and pool area make one feel very safe. I highly recommend this condo and hope to visit again next winter

We enjoyed having you and thank you so very much for taking the time to write us such a fine review. We certainly look forward to your next visit and many more after that. God Bless! Susan and Vic
Truly a "peach on the beach".
This was the second time we've stayed at this unit and a peach it is. Let's start with Susan following up so there is no miscommunication. Meeting us out front and showing us the various amenities and walking through the unit showing us where everything is located. Some people may find this annoying but my wife and I sometimes spend a frustrating amount of time looking for something because we were never told where anything is kept. We find this courtesy to be helpful and welcome. The unit is very clean and homey. It is furnished down to the details of anything you would normally find in your own home plus the extra things generally found in a beach house. Towels, toys, even sunscreen was available. We even had an elevator call button near the front door to pre-call the elevator to the 5th floor. We generally take the stairway when heading down. The stairwell exits to the pool area which is well maintained and very clean. There is a pool house as well as gas grills available for outdoor cooking. The rear exit from the pool area steps right on to the beach. Each evening we enjoyed cocktails on the balcony while various seabirds came back to roost at the Seaside Seabird Sanctuary located a short distance away. We spotted dolphins daily swimming close to shore. We traveled to St. Pete, Tarpon Springs, and Clearwater and ate many times at Crabby Bill's down in St. Pete. Mostly, we enjoyed the gorgeous views from the balcony, the sound of lightly crashing waves and life passing by on the beach. We will definitely be back in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Peach on the Beach for a relaxing time and a great location.

Susan and I wish to thank you guys, very much. What a kind review and we enjoyed your leading off with the PEACH "thing" We think it is a true PEACH of a beachfront condo and just what many folks are looking for on their Florida visit. We certainly do look forward to your next visit and remember, many people say 3 (visits) times is a Charm. Warm regards, from Vic and Susan and the PEACH ON THE BEACH. Have a GREAT year.
Best Vacation Ever!
This was our second year staying in one of the "Vic and Susan" condos and I must say once again it was a perfect choice! The condo is immaculate, beds are so comfortable, and everything is perfect, Best nights sleep since our visit in 2018 :)The views of the gulf are ever changing and just amazing, Nothing can beat the sunset over the gulf. The breeze coming in from the gulf is perfect as you sit out on he balcony watching the sky.The location is perfect for shopping, site seeing and just relaxing. Best vacation ever and we will be back. Thank you Susan and Vic for welcoming us to you homesLinda 2019

Thanks for choosing to stay with us, once again. Looking forward to your next visit. Your family is delightful and so respectful of our condo. So glad that you were able to enjoy the beach and the scenic views from the balcony. See you soon!!! Susan & Vic
Specious condo with a breathtaking view!
The condo far exceeded our expectations! The pictures don't do justice for the amount of space and comfortable living within. With 2 teenage boys in tow, having a second full bathroom was a must and this condo didn't disappoint.The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils, serving and cookware you could need for your stay.The view from the balcony was breathtaking! Getting to watch the sun rise and set over the beach everyday was amazing! We could also see the pool area, which was nice for keeping an eye on our kids.Susan was a delight to work with: very thorough in her accommodations and patiently explained all the expectations for taking care of the property. But our enjoyment of their property and our vacation was her number-one priority.We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone. We'll be back!

WOW !!! Thanks for the really GREAT REVIEW. You and yours were GREAT to have and we sure hope you mean it when you wrote " We'll be back" because we really love to have folks like you back. Those are the MAGIC words for Susan who really enjoyed working with wonderful people like you guys. We knew from the start that you folks were going to be GREAT, and you were even with 2 teenage boys in tow (they were great too). Warm Regards, Vic & Susan
Another Wonderful Home
We decided on getting away from the rental companies and trying directly renting from actual owners this year, and what a great place to start. "Peach On The Beach" is absolutely a great place to stay with the family. We have one on one contact with Sue, and we felt extremely comfortable staying here, even before we arrived. Sue stressed the fact that we should not over pack, because everything we needed is right here. And it is. Beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrella, beach towels, beach pails & shovels, etc...... That was just in the garage, yes, a garage with a garage door, not just a covered parking spot. Inside was immaculate, very clean and homey. You have a full kitchen with any cooking utensils, pot, pans, you name it. A blender for adult beverages, griddle, crock pot, roaster pans. Seems like you have over 50 towels to use also. Really, do not over pack, you have EVERYTHING.You can feel comfortable knowing that you have made the right choice when you book with Sue. The only negative is that I have to go back to work, sigh...Thank You,Bob Maday

Yes, working directly with an owner, instead of a "book it" rental operation like PEACH ON THE BEACH, not only saves you money but results in A SUPER VACATION. It is just GREAT to hear a visitor like you say it. We really wish more folks would understand that service fees go to a middleman and not to the owner who must maintain the UPSCALE unit that you seek. We also, knew from the start that your rental was going to be a "win win" for both of us. Please bring that GREAT FAMILY back again.
Family-friendly condo - right at the beach
It is wonderful and VERY clean condo with a great view over the Gulf and the sunset. The whole property was very clean and organized. We had a great stay with our two kids enjoying the beach and the pool. We definitely recommend it! Thanks to Susan and Victor

Your visit was a "WIN-WIN" right? You and yours enjoyed the Peach on the Beach and we enjoyed meeting you and having your family in our condo. Such a nice family and we certainly do hope you visit us again. Susan says , she would like to see how much your kids grow in a year or two, or whatever. PLEASE, come again. Susan & Vic
Oasis of Calm
The Rental property was spotless and had everything you would need for a spectacular vacation. Relaxing and clean beach. Renting this property from Susan and Vic was an amazing time. There is also a pool and 2 grills. The view from the beach and sunset were so nice.
