“An Older Building but Very Good Accommodations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Just returned from a 7 day vacation and stayed at this condo. The condo 610 was very comfortable, clean and modern. The owners have completed a renovation, so the kitchen, bathrooms and carpeting is new. The location is great - walk from the pool onto a white sand beach to the ocean. Also, as it is located on Gulf Blvd. - short drives to Reddington Beach and Seminole Blvd for great eating places.

Room Tip: The upper floors are very good - excellent views and quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Older, building with pool patio, and grills sitting right on the beach. There is a volley ball net on location and the beach is a gorgous stretch that is not overpopulated despite the nearby beach accesses. One parking spot per unit with paid parking at a park across the street at a county park. Our unit was comfortably beachy and typical of a lot of rentals, a little worn but fun for a family with teenagers. We had a great time and the unit owners and other renters were very friendly and nice. Its low key, not a party seen like some condos which was perfect for us. Plenty of pool side seating. Bring a tent or umbrella for the beach if you want any shade. Manager onsite.

Room Tip: Ask for direct gulf view. Those units that face the intercoastal are 1 bedroom.

My entire family just finished our 1 week stay at Holiday Villa III, My son, daughter and nephew each had a different unit with their own children. My wife and I were in unit #603. The unit was nice and was very clean when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need in utensils like pots, pans dishes snd silverware .....etc.

The mattress in the master bedroom was not like the one at home but we figured you never
get one like home when you stay in hotels or motels. It really wasn't that bad.just not what we
we were used to

We had a problem with some light bulbs that were out, but just one visit to the office and the bulbs were replaced in about 10 min.

There was some construction noise from another unit near us, but it was only during the day
while we were out on the beach so it wasn't too bad. I guess you can't really be too upset with
this because it shows that the Owners of the units are trying to remodel and up-date their units.
The City of Indian Shores has opened a parking lot across the street at the Boat Ramp..
If you have visitors they can park there for $2.00 for 24 hours. This was good news, because
in the past whenever we had friends come to visit we would have to try and find parking on the
street and this was at times hard to find parking near the condo.
The pool area and the pool are cleaned each morning as is the elevator. Some people forget
to rinse the sand off their feet and enter the elevator with sand on their feet and wet bathing suits

We would definitely stay at Holiday Villa III again in the future.

My family and I recently visited Holiday Villas III, as the place we have stayed for the last several years was unavailable (St Pete Beach). So my husband and I, although hesitant, decided to try Indian Shores. Holiday Villas III had come recommended by my husband's colleague.

We found the beach up-keep to be equally superior to that of St Pete Beach. The pool area was perfect for our toddler grand-daughter and conveniently located, unlike many of the condo complexes we reviewed.

The office staff was also very friendly and helpful. Because our flight arrived early, we took a chance and found our room to be clean and ready to go before check-in time. Our condo was supplied with everything you could need. All was ready to go. Unfortunately, we arrived on a day of endless rain. Noticing our grand-daughter and the rest of our family, the woman in the office gave us some "indoor ideas" that the locals know about. And if you want to forego the preparation of lunch or dinner, she can definitely name some great places that are less "touristy" and cater well to the locals (both seafood and not, as we aren't all seafood fans). Great service, great food!

Overall, Holiday Villas III is a great buy for a family vacation. It's an easy jaunt from Tampa airport, everything you could need is within walking distance or a few minute's drive, everything was clean and in order, and the management was to be commended.

We will be making a reservation very soon for next year!

I love the beach and the area but hate our stay in unit 603. The decor is out dated. Couch looks like it was from the early 90s. Patio furniture was broken. Blood stains on pillow and large white spot on master bed, manager did have these replaced. We wondered how clean the place really was after we found this. Oh forgot to mention the loud drilling due to renovations up stairs. We are ready for vacation to be over. Will not stay here again. Was not worth the 1200 we spent for the week.

This unit looked great online, the pictures matched the condo really well. Our stay was good, with a few minor exceptions. The pool was really small for the size of the complex, we didn't even use it. There is only one elevator for the entire building,and climbing stairs to the 6th floor with groceries & the like isn't fun. The condo did have Internet available, but we had to pay an additional $30 for the week, and even then it wasn't wireless and it was slower than what i would like. Also, I went to print a coupon from the office, and when I asked an older lady behind the counter if I could print, she rudely told me no and went back to her computer. Only when I told her someone else from my unit had printed did she ask if I was a renter and then told me how to print. I was more than put off from her. Another negative was that a whole floor share one washer and dryer, and you have to pay $1.25 per load for washing and drying.

On the good notes, the view was splendid! The furniture on the balcony was very nice and comfortable. The kitchen was updated nicely, and the living room was clean, comfortable, and the television was a good sized flat screen. Our condo was missing a cutting board, we called the office to see if they had any extra and we got a brand new one from them that same day. The location was great, we were close to many restaurants and attractions within walking distance. Overall, I would probably choose to stay somewhere else, but I would be fine staying there again.

Our unit was so nice I' m not telling you the number. And we are coming again in June with daughter and grandkids. We stayed one week summer of 2011 and grandkids wanted to come back and skip Orlando to stay here on beach in 2012.
I found the two men in the office to be helpful when we had questions. Ask to see pictures of the unit before you commit as some are better equiped than others, reflected in prices.
