... and go to take the shots. I plan to come back alone and walk its length before I leave town. On a completely unrelated note, I have improved my quality of life a little. I am one of those who enjoy singing along with the radio while driving. Unfortunately, I can't sing, I drown out the song I ...
... bags off him for fear he would break his back!! (he could hardly lift them, let alone carry them to my car)! Sat on the beach looking at the pier at sunset. Wrote postcards whilst sitting on the sand, watching pelicans swoop for fish in the sea in front of me. It's as idilic as it sounds! Was sitting on the balcony this evening, catching up on some emails-but kept hearing rattles from the trees below me ...(I think it was a snake-eeeeep!!) -so came inside ...
... out loud-everyone stared at me, but I didn't care! Made me feel at home :) As much as I absolutely love it out here-I think that it would be hard to be away from family and friends at birthdays and Christmas. Went to watch the sunset on the beach. The water is so clear and the sand so white. It's so beautiful that it's almost surreal. You feel like your watching it on tv-that it must be cgi-nothing real could be this stunning. But it is. Had dinner overlooking the beach. ...

Pas sure que je vais me baigner... Je dis çà à Gaby tout énervé. Pour finalement s'aperçevoir que c'était des dauphins... Je me suis fais niaiser tout le reste du voyage... On passe deux ...
... short of a week ago). A couple of miles later we came to the Trail Head of the Pinellas Bike Trail. Now we know why we couldn't find it by car yesterday, because as the bridge began to arch as they do, the sidewalk sloped downward and went below grade and then underneath the bridge and across to the Trail Head which started on the opposite side of the road below the bridge. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Villas III Indian Shores
We were at Holiday Villas for a week June 5-12 and loved it! We rented from the owner of #306. It was clean and we had a good view of the beach. Indian Shores is a good place to relax and lay in the sun. We had our 2 year old grandson with us and it was perfect. Not to crowded at the pool or on the beach. We will return to Holiday Villas III. Thanks for a wonderful week in Indian Shores!
We rented directly from the owner of unit 605 and LOVED IT! Condo is decorated very nicely and in great shape. We were impressed with the layout of the unit and the added touches that the owner provided. GREAT VIEW and the oceanfront pool was also very enjoyable. We would recommend unit 605 to all at beach lovers condo. We will be back next year!
No complaints. Our unit and the building were nice and clean. Saw painters and maintenance people doing work. Very quiet building. Comfortable beds. Lots of dishes, glasses and cutlery. Can't wait to go back.
Holiday Villas III was very nice
We stayed in unit 203 and it was nice. It could use a little paint and updating but I would certainly stay again. The property as a whole was well maintained and the staff was very helpful. A nice family place. I wasn't sure what to expect because all these reviews are split about 50/50 as to what kind of places all these condo's are. From outside appearances most look like they are kept up pretty good.
Highly recommend condo 603 at Holiday Villas III. It was the best. Good view and very attractively furnished. Had a great stay there.
No view 711
Unit 711 has no view at all. What a dissapointment!The linens have seen better times and the kitchen utensils need replacement. Some of it was unuseable.All units endind with 11 have no views in the building.
I have to agree with the other person who stayed in Unit 607. The place was filthy, the bedding old, worn out and crusty. The frying pan was so corroded and dirty we couldn't use it and the inside of the cupboards were disgusting. We had two 80 year old ladies with us and didn't want to move them so we stayed the week. When we got ready to leave, I stripped the beds only to find unwashed blood on the mattress cover!!!
Totally unacceptable. If you are given 607 call the people you booked it with and they will move you ... we were told that had we called our travel agent right away they could have done this.
I booked through Intravelnet or Snowbird Vacations which I pay to belong to!!!!!
Unit 607 filthy
Unit 607 was filthy. It was so nasty, we couldn't stay there. If you would like pictures of this unit, email me.
605 is a nice unit.
We rented from the same guy, 605 and that unit is a nice unit and fairly priced. It has a great view from the balcony and he has a great website. The pool is oceanfront which is very nice, not like Holiday Villas II which is in the parking lot- we made that mistake last year.I would definately recommend unit 605- you can not go wrong.
Great Family property!
We stayed in a great unit 605 on the 6th floor, rented from owner who was a nice fella, helped us with resturants, places to see, things to do. He has a really nice condo, tastefully decorated and clean. I would definately recommend his unit.
