In April we stayed in 110. Needed some updates like furniture, decor and beds very noisy but it was clean. Really preferred beachfront but the price was nice so can't complain. Free WiFi by the pool is a joke. You can get it if you stand directly in front of the office and not move. Loved the area and the... More

During the month of March we stayed in condo 206. The space was recently remodeled with new cupboards, counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The patio furniture was low and comfortable as were the couches. There was a lovely flat-screen, but as it was Sony, was a bit slow to respond which was confusing for the seniors in our party....

We are currently staying in 106. The view is beautiful. The unit itself smells very musty and damp. Furniture is extremely dated, likely from late 80s early 90s. Kitchen has been updated with granite, no disposal in sink though. Living room and kitchen area are all livable. The bedrooms are incredibly in need of new beds, bedding, and carpet. The... More

We rented Unit #302 for 2 weeks in February. While the decor was a little dated, the unit was clean and comfortable. We overlooked the Gulf and could watch dolphins and sunsets from our balcony. While each unit had a dedicated parking space, some were difficult to use because of the pillars. The office staff was helpful and accommodating.

We need to first commend Larry and Derrick, onsite managers, for making our stay manageable. The condition of this unit is not indicative of the facility or them. This unit shouldn't be lived in by anyone in its present state. The owner (who we understand is elderly, so we have some sympathy for that) should not have this unit on... More

A little longer review and in 2 parts but I feel deserving of it. CONDO CORP. There is an on site office that is staffed regularly daily (Sunday included) and on check in days they have extended hours. If check in is going to be late, they will accommodate you and in our case, early check in was much appropriated... More

We stayed at Holiday Villas III over Thanksgiving 2013, which is the same time a winter storm basically blanketed most of the country, and significantly limited travel over the holiday. We were able to beat the storm, but we FROZE our butts-off. Lol...it was 30 - 40 degrees most of the weekend, but we enjoyed ourselves, regardless. The location can't... More

The Holiday Villas III property is located directly on the beach on Gulf Blvd in Indian Shores, FL. The unit we stayed in was #502. It appears that each unit is individually owned. Unit 502 had two bedrooms, one with queen bed and one with two dbls. The unit had two bathrooms and a full size kitchen just off the... More
