Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for such a wonderful place to spend a vacation. The beaches here are picture perfect, the sunsets...breathtaking. This is Florida at its best. We love the little shops, restaurants, taverns and other amenities all along the beach from Clearwater to St. Pete's...so much fun.

Indian Rocks Beach,in all, is such a perfect, peaceful place. We would love to come back sometime.

Bruce and Lisa Westall have worked in the lodging/hospitality business for over 25 years.

They own the Porch House Bed & Breakfast in Granville, Ohio, a small college town

near Columbus. For several years they vacationed in Florida and eventually decided to try their hands at owning a vacation rental property. They were sure they wanted to own a house large enough for a family to enjoy, and they wanted to provide a private pool as well. It was important to them, too, that the property be within a short walk to the beach. All they needed was a Florida community that appealed to them. After an extensive search, they happened upon

Indian Rocks Beach, and said to each other, “This reminds me of our village in Ohio!”

That was nearly ten years ago. Since then they’ve added a second house to their rental

inventory with the same family-friendly features.

Because of their extensive lodging experiences in both Ohio and Florida, Bruce and Lisa have

become experts about the characteristics of a great family vacation. They strive to offer a

clean, welcoming home in a quiet neighborhood that is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, parks, and of course, the beach. They are always available to handle the little glitches that occur in any house, because they want to make sure guests enjoy a problem-free

vacation.

Bruce or Lisa Westall purchased this house in 2006

Indian Rocks Beach is a great destination for a family, retired couple, or vacationer to enjoy

a pleasant stay. The beach is spectacular, and you will find entrances to it every two blocks

along Gulf Boulevard. Your house is only a block from this main thoroughfare, and along it

you will find great restaurants and shops. Your neighborhood is quiet and residential in nature; everyone waves and speaks in passing, and anyone you meet will offer tips about what to see or where to eat.

Clearwater Beach is just a short drive north on Gulf Blvd. Lots of vacation glitz here: souvenir shops, restaurants, and Pier 60, a beach - centered venue for swimming, entertainment, and

kid-friendly attractions. Or you can head south to St. Johns Pass, a vacationer’s mecca on the inland waterway. More shops, good eats, and fun.

Don’t want to drive? Take the trolley; there’s a stop on Gulf at the end of your street.

Aside from a major supermarket (5 minutes across the bridge) you need not leave the

town at all. Enjoy the beach, relax by the pool, delight in a well-deserved getaway.

You will not be disappointed when you select Indian Rocks Beach as your destination. That is why our guests return year after year.

As soon as you enter the home, you will smile and think to yourself, “Yes, this is Florida.”

Bruce and Lisa have taken great care to decorate the interior with bright, beachy colors and furnishings. The kitchen is well-stocked with cooking supplies and utensils. The pool area and deck provide ample seating for leisurely hours in the sun.

If you’re not accustomed to staying in a vacation rental home, you will be

surprised at how spacious and accommodating this house is. There is ample room -- inside and out -- for your family or group to be together or stay apart.

The owners are committed to providing both a clean, welcoming home and also one where

everything works. If something -- an appliance, for example -- is missing or broken, they will try to take care of it within twenty-four hours.

Best of all the home is located within easy walking distance of the beach, shops, restaurants, and parks. There are two city parks that cater to children and a nature preserve with an interesting self-guided boardwalk tour. And they’re all nearby.

Bruce and Lisa hope this becomes your home away from home.

Great Place for Family & Friends

Great Place for Family & Friends
  • 5 of 5
We rented for the month of February, we loved our stay! We had family & friends come and visit. The house was so well stocked all we had to get was groceries. We loved the wagon to take grandkids to the beach, tons of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas. The house has lots of room to spread out, 2 living rooms. We have great memories! There are lots of restaurants close by our favorite is a new one called Aqua Prime Seafood & Steaks; the best on the beach. Guppy's is good but hard to get in. Slyce Pizza is the best we've had, dine in or take out its wonderful. The house was incredibly clean when we got there. I would recommend this place if you want to be close to the beach.

Awesome vacation house!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a fabulous place for our vacation! The home has everything you could ever need, plus SO much room!!!! The backyard pool area is like another world...very nicely landscaped...seems like an island paradise. It is only a block to the beach for amazing sunsets, and there are numerous great places to eat within walking distance. We only discovered the SLYCE pizza place the last night there, or we may have stayed an extra week to go around their very cool menu! The Kooky Coconut was a personal favorite, and Crabby Bills is awesome too! Bruce and Lisa have a beautiful beach themed home, and were very nice to work with. They even accommodated us shortly before our stay to add an extra day ( glad it wasn't already booked). It is close to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, St Johns Pass shopping area...And so many other great places to go, but we loved the house so well we stayed poolside a lot! We are already planning our next stay...hopefully next fall...guess we better book early! Thanks again to Bruce and Lisa for a truly memorable vacation!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our home. You make everything sound too good to be true. It's hard to believe there was only bare grass in the backyard when we bought the house. We've made many updates over the years, but the pool and landscaping have certainly been the most dramatic change. Having a porch and two living areas, allows plenty of room to spread out and relax. Of course, having the beach at the end of the block is pretty awesome too!

Indian Rocks Beach Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5
Great vacation home. Plenty of room for a family to spread out . Nicely decorated in a "beachy" theme. Beautiful backyard and pool area. Very close to a park for little ones to play. Close to beach (just walk up the street). Close to restaurants.
The house was very clean, the kitchen has everything you need for indoor or outdoor cooking.

We stayed for two weeks with our daughter, son inlaw and one year old grandson. We were in the pool everyday, enjoyed barbecues and dinner out. It was great that there were extra tvs as hockey playoffs were on. We enjoyed walks to the beach and nature area. We did go to Busch Gardens. It has changed a lot from when we were there with our kids. Really not worth the price of admission.

Overall the house was all that we needed to enjoy a great family vacation.

Excellent holiday home and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
Having initially looked at condo’s in Clearwater we (family of 4 with two teenage children) booked this house as a place to relax after visiting the theme parks of Orlando. This is an excellent holiday home, the website description proved to be correct but more importantly we found that everything you would want is there. The location is great situated on a quiet street with a 3-4 minute walk to the beach. Indian Rocks is really laid back but has a selection of good local eating places and more options are found back across the bridge on the mainland.
The house was just what we wanted, very spacious, it is much bigger inside than it looks from the external photograph. The décor throughout is really well done and the pool area is excellent, a perfect place to spend a day in the sun.
We did go to Bush Gardens for a day which was well worth the visit, all the family voted this, along with SeaWorld as the best theme park of the holiday.
Would we go back, most definitely yes which is the best recommendation that can be made.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
A big thank you from Norway to Bruce and Lisa for letting us rent your house. We had a perfect vacation in a beautiful house. The location was very good, only three minutes walking to the beach and a lot of restaurants within walking distance. We loved the pool area and our youngest son learned to swim in the pool. Very friendly neighborhood. It’s only 40 minutes driving to Busch Garden(great fun!) if you want to spend a day or two in a park. We will recommend this house to everybody that wants a vacation with sun, sand and fun. Hope to come back sometime.
