|Minimum Stay||3 - 30 nights|
Our BLUE Cottage is in the 'historic district' of Indian Rocks Beach and is ideally located with direct beach access only a 1 minute stroll from the house. Walk out the front door, look to your left and you will see the aquamarine waters of the Gulf of Mexico with the white sandy beach just down the street. The house is close enough to enjoy a couple hours of fun in the sun....then walk on back....take a lunch break....and back to the beach you go.
For those with boats, the intercoastal dock is just a couple blocks away. After a day on the water, your boat will be safe sitting in our extra long driveway for the night.
We are also located walking distance to a variety of RESTAURANTS. Or, if your in need of a quick ice cream treat.......there's a great Ice Cream Parlor right around the corner.
What more could you ask for!

I am excited about my home just one block from the beach!
Shirley Grieco purchased this house in 2009
The location is just perfect for us. The Beach is a short minute walk and so many restaurants are within walking distance.
The location is perfect. The sand is a 45 second stroll. There are several restaurants within walking distance. Our most favorite time is sunset. Every day we are there, we make sure to take the time to walk down and watch the sun gone down. It is one of the most peaceful moments of the day and each day the sunset is unique.
I highly recommend this adorable beach house. I flew out from Canada to preview houses, as my wife and I be staying for 6 weeks. This was by far the best location, cleanest and affordable. Shirley and Corbyn were very accomadating. The house is full stocked with everything we needed. Hangng out in the back lanai in the evening was a comfort. We usually pick different areas and homes each year. My wife has said ahe would like to book this one again. Highly recommend.
I have stayed at their house in Angel Fire, NM and it was wonderful. Beautiful views and very relaxing. I look forward to staying here in this FL property sometime soon. If you want a beautiful vacation home in NM, check this one out.. it is fantastic! http://www.vrbo.com/80611. They are great owners and nice to know them!
This home is fantastic - sweet community, comfortable interior, and amazing outdoor space (where we spent the majority of our time). We had so much fun staying here.
The home is a short walk from the beach, less than one block, and it is very easy access. The neighborhood surrounding the home was safe with very friendly neighbors and good walkability. We walked to restaurants and shops nearby every day.
The interior of the home is nicely appointed with comfortable furniture and beachy decor. It really feels like a home that you can curl up in at the end of the day and enjoy a television show on the couch or a glass of wine on the patio. The kitchen is fully equipped, and we did not find it lacking for anything.
The best feature of the property is the outdoor area(s). There is a nice sitting area at the front of the home, and a great functional patio and yard area in the back of the home. There is also an outdoor shower which is perfect for rinsing off all of that sand at the end of a beach day.
Overall, this is one of the best properties we have rented through VRBO. The owners take great care of the renters to make all transactions easy, and the fact that they allow dogs is so hard to find. We really enjoyed having our dog on vacation with us and watching her swim in the ocean for the first time! A great trip, and I cannot wait to return.
We found this heritage cottage to be perfect for our needs. It was great for two, but also able to comfortably house visiting family with a toddler. Indian Rocks is a lovely community with facilities such as a library, parks, lighted tennis courts and a very good gym 10 minutes away. It also has an exceptionally good variety of restaurants for all tastes and budgets. Supermarkets are less than 10 minutes away and there is a well stocked convenience store less than a block away.
The cottage has everything you might need in terms of kitchen equipment, dishes, washer/dryer, and linens etc. It's nicely furnished. A highlight for us was the large private outdoor seating space, including a terrific covered area in back and some pleasant green space. There were beach chairs, nice outdoor furniture and an exceptionally good gas grill. The landscaping and gardens are very nice, and the beach is a 3 minute walk away. The photos nicely represent the property to date. It was clean and well maintained, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to others.
The neighborhood is quiet and well-kept, a secure and pleasant place to walk or run. The owner is easy to reach and helpful. The best review maybe is that we'll be back next year!
It's important for us that we include our two dogs during long weekend getaways. When we discussed this with the owners we were assured they were welcome. We had such a relaxing 3 days in this quaint home in a laid back neighborhood within a short walk to the beach. Exactly as advertised.
The home was clean and ready for us on our arrival and looked just as the photos portray. The furniture is modern and comfortable with plenty of space. We especially enjoyed hanging out in the backyard. Very private with a Key West feel. That was our dogs favorite part. There is plenty of dining nearby. You can choose to walk or drive. We did both. There is also a corner store about a 5 minute walk away. Decent wine selection with plenty of munchies! Also, discovered a bar called Coasters just around the corner. Typical looking bar with some friendly locals. If you like to fish, that seems to be the topic of choice. Their Cuban sandwich (Tampa style) rocks.
Although the best thing is to bring a good book( and guitar) the property has good communication amenities with cable and internet that worked just fine.
If beach time is your thing you can grab your chair and towel and off you go with little effort. Overall, great place and we will be headed back.
When you open the door and feel at home, you know you have found the perfect holiday location. This cottage is tastefully decorated and includes everything you need to make your stay pleasant. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a cosy vacation within walking distance of the most wonderful sandy beach which goes on for miles and for the many restaurants closeby.
Thank you to Shirley and her husband for creating such a haven that allowed me to have such a wonderful time.
Everything was very nice for our visit to Indian Rocks Beach. Felt very at home and quant with a nice patio in the back for relaxing with our family. We grilled out 2 nights and was so enjoyable, and low key. Short walk to the beach and grocery just down the street. Thanks again for allowing us to only stay 2 nights given our time frame so that we could see our niece and Great niece.
