Overview

Indian Rocks Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhouse Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'Something Fishy' beach townhouse is truly the tropical gulf front paradise, decorated in a fun and funky Florida flair that will continuously remind you that you are on vacation in the tropics!

Two spacious upstairs bedrooms, both with king size beds and quality bed linens, provide the vacationer with privacy and intimacy as they are strategically located above the main living area. A loft space with a comfortable pull out sofa bed offers additional sleeping arrangements that is perfect for kids or an extended family member. A large walk in closet, washer/dryer and flat screen tv's in the bedrooms give this unit extra convenience.

The master bath is a vivid array of wild colors and a hand painted shower curtain of two buxom bathing beauties, thick, coordinating towels and many extra appointments that will help keep you content during your stay.

The kitchen, complete with a wide array of appliances and utensils, is not only vibrant and well lit, but the view of the gulf can be seen for your enhanced visual pleasure in the adjoining dining area. The large living room offers a wide variety of seating and lounging and a large flat screen television with both VCR and DVD capabilities. A fully stocked library of movies for all ages as well as games and coloring books provides hours of entertainment.

The downstairs bathroom is a nautical delight, complete with a shower and decorative touches that will delight your senses.

The balcony overlooking the gulf is large enough to host cocktail hour as the sun sets over the gulf shores.

Our storage space at ground level provides convenience to the beach and is stocked with beach umbrellas, beach chairs and water/sand toys. A small grill offers an option to cooking inside. Outdoor, patio furniture in the carport is on hand for those that want to catch a cool breeze in the covered carport that houses two vehicles for this unit.

A beach shower, patio picnic table and a private path through the sea grass to the beach gives this condo complex a welcoming touch. The newly refinished pool area is a great alternative for a cool swim.

About Patti

Welcome to 'Something Fishy' beach condo, my unique creation that I painted and decorated with tropical style pieces created by a variety of local artists. As an athlete and mother, I can assure you that Indian Rocks Beach is a wonderful playground for those that like to be outdoors enjoying the sunshine with their friends or family! Whether you like to run, bike, swim or just grab a beach chair and a great book, you'll love what the area has to offer.

We are avid runners, cyclists and fitness enthusiasts who enjoy the wonderful year 'round sunshine and opportunity to spend a great deal of time outdoors. We love to waterski, wakeboard and escape every so often to head out West for a bit of snowboarding! I am a competitive marathon runner and often make a point to discover a new place via my daily training runs.

We'd enjoy and opportunity to share our beach haven with you and all of the wonders of beach side solitude . . . 'Something Fishy' is truly a great escape!

Patti purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Patti chose Indian Rocks Beach

Indian Rocks Beach offers all of the amenities of some of the more populated beaches, without all of the hassles of traffic, parking and noise pollution. The calm, residential quality of the area and the serenity of the white sandy beaches are perfect for a relaxing beach getaway for a group outing or a family vacation. Our 24 unit complex is very family oriented and friendly. The condo that I purchased has its own covered parking spaces right under the unit for easy access. Since the bedrooms are above the living area, privacy is maintained for those that choose to sleep in. The epic sunsets on the quiet beach are breathtaking.

Most importantly, I take great care of my valued guests, as they are what inspire me to make 'Something Fishy' such a great vacation destination. I live only 4 miles from the unit, so I am available to my visitors and have been known to drop by on one of my training runs or training rides to make certain that my guests are thoroughly enjoying all that we offer.

What makes this townhome unique

Covered private parking is such a treat, especially when it is directly in front of our unit! This convenience offers ease when unloading suitcases and groceries to its private entrance. There are countless restaurants within walking distance as well as some terrific live music, and there's even a trolley that services over 20 miles of our gulffront roadway to transport you safely to all of the hotspots along multiple neighboring beaches.

Enjoy our newly resurfaced outdoor, heated swimming pool that is only a few dozen steps from the beach. Lounge in a beach chair on the deck and soak up some rays in our quiet complex.

Host a family and friends barbeque alone or with the surrounding friendly neighbors on the deck bordering the beach while you watch a breathtaking sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a great week here in Something Fishy. We did exactly what we had planned -- "Rest and Relax." We rode our Harley several times, which was great. Thanks for sharing your condo with us. I love the extra touches you added. I love the "beachy" feel of the condo. My husband was so grateful to be able to park his truck & Harley under cover, as he worries about both. Celebrated my birthday here on Tues, and must say one of the best ones yet. Loved seeing the ocean from the balcony, so peaceful. But now we must head to the mountains of TN into lots of snow from what friends say.



Take care and God bless you & your family. Hope to return next year.

Something Fishy Beach Condo Indian Rocks (It Did!)

  • of 5

We recently returned from our March 2015 Vacation to this wonderful condo!

The condo was centrally located on the Florida Gulf Coast in between St Pete's Beach and Clearwater, close enough to the action but far enough away to provide some tranquility.

Given I have a background in 4 and 5 star hospitality properties, I would like to offer that this property has been meticulously decorated in the "fishy, beach" theme. The amount of work that has gone into every single room detail, the decorations, color co-ordination, art pieces (loved the glass sea shell lamp in the living room) including light switches is incredible. The unit was complete with everything (including beach toys/umbrellas etc) from the kitchen to the washer and dryer, nothing was missing, including some small starter coffee to get us started as we arrived pretty late and couldn't get out to do a grocery until the morning. The beach was fantastic, mid March air temperature was 81 while the gulf ocean was 76. Having lived in Southern California I have become a big fan of Florida's Gulf Coast's warm waters and white powdery sand. If your up in the morning having your coffee on the balcony (great view) be ready for the official Pelican fly by and have your camera ready. Incredible sunsets every night as we took lazy strolls down the beach. All this is just what this Canadian Family needed as a warm respite from polar vortexes.

Fantastic restaurants are abound and don't forget to check out Crabby Bills and the Kooky Coconut, the latter is a very short walk down the beach for ice cream or mid day Cuban sandwiches or burgers to bring back to the beach for lunch.

We normally like to switch up our vacation adventures with new places/locations every year, but we have decided to return next year as our overall experience was that good.

One and only draw back was the International booking process and charges from VRBO, which is not reflective of Patti's her Condo or experience, VRBO during the initial part of booking took both a booking fee and international transaction fee, coupled with the foreign exchange rate, the multiple VRBO service charges were annoying. Patti did her best to help navigate this issues and in the future for International travel I will try and deal with owners directly.

We truly enjoyed our Beach Condo Experience and look forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: Mark--It warms my heart to know that you truly appreciate all of the visual efforts that I have made to "Something Fishy" to immerse our thawing northern guests from their frozen state into the warm welcome of the tropics! I really enjoyed the video that you posted of your beautiful family, your fantastic trip, all of your escapades, and especially the fact that we managed to conquer the struggles of your online international booking one hurdle at a time. I welcome guests to get to know me personally as the owner, so that they feel secure in their booking, know that I'm available to them, and to guide them to hit the ground running when they arrive at "Something Fishy" for a seamless vacation experience. We truly look forward to having you again! Warmest regards! Patti

Condo is very homey and comfortable. Beach is just steps away and simply delightful. We appreciated the extras including the beach chairs, blankets and towels. Great location and very quiet.

Feels like Home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Indian Rocks Beach for over 20 years because we love the ambience of this community. So this year was the first time we stayed at Something Fishy. What a wonderful surprise! The condo is impeccably maintained, the décor stimulating and tasteful, and the location can't be beat!! In fact, it makes all our previous rentals seem like just "making do". Since we had just come from a hectic family wedding weekend of our youngest son (finally at 35), Something Fishy provided just the perfect place for tranquility--winding down, getting back to the basics of walking the beach, long conversations with my brother and sister-in-law who joined us, etc. We'll be back in 2016--and hopefully many years to come. It feels like home!

AWESOME family get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

I've started this review about eight times now, and each time I stopped, it was because I was afraid I wasn't conveying just how great a time our family had at Something Fishy!! We are die hard VRBO folks, and really, Something Fishy is best of class. The location is fantastic, the place was spotless and well stocked, and Patti could not be a more gracious owner. We had one minor audio/visual issue and she took care of it as fast as we raised it! The place is super comfortable, and you can't beat the convenient covered parking, heated pool and immediate access to a great beach -- all just outside the front door. Lots of times, reviewers will say, "we'll be back," and you never know. Well, we WILL be back -- we've already booked a return visit for later this year. As I said, we love VRBO, and Something Fishy is an outstanding place! Patti -- thanks for such a terrific family vacation!

Last minute trip / Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Something Fishy is a wonderful house with plenty of things for the kids to do and a great location to the beach and places to eat. We needed a place last minute to stay and the owner was very responsive and flexible in getting things ready last minute for us. We would definitely stay again but would not consider the pull out couch a viable sleeping option for adults.

Fun times even without the sun

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two kids and I had a very relaxing stay after spending several days at Disney World. Something Fishy was a great place to unwind. We loved the decor and enjoyed the "walkability" of Indian Rocks Beach right from the condo. Very comfortable beds and great game/movie/book collection for the kids. The weather didn't really cooperate for us to get much time in the Gulf or the pool, but we hope to come back to try again!

Indian Rocks Beach is a semi-residential community with more of a 'mom and pop' feel to the gulf front vacation rentals. Our community boasts miles of sandy white beaches to explore, stroll and enjoy. Within walking distance of our beach are restaurants, a skateboard park, a local art/community center, the intracoastal waterway as well as boating and fishing. A free trolley runs up and down Gulf Blvd. right in front of our complex and takes you both north and south for over 25 miles. Deep sea fishing, stand up paddling, sunset cruises, dinner cruises, water skiing, sailing, etc. are all available at the local rentals. Golf courses surround the area and are plentiful. Busch Gardens, Dali Museum, Tropical Field are all local attractions and Disney World is merely 90 minutes away.

The largest pedestrian bike trail in the U.S. just 1.5 miles due East of the beach condo.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, shelling, spa, racquetball, basketball, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard

Golf: Largo Public Golf Course is within 1 1/2 miles as well as multiple other public courses.
