Indian Rock beach in a nice place if you want to be away from the crowd and the cottage is perfectly located in front the the beach. The beach itself was beautiful.
However, don't expect any luxury, it's not a condominium. This is a cottage, the kind you would have when you go in the woods. You have the minimum you need and you don't expect much style. Still, it was a bit disappointing to have such a nice spot and stay in a rental that shabby. Though it was clean and the size of the cottage is fine for 2 persons.
This was our first visit to Indian Rocks and we loved it ! We loved it so much we booked to come back next summer a few days after we returned home! The view was fantastic and the cottage was great. We liked the closeness to the beach. When they say 50 feet to the water they are spot on! The neighborhood is quite and relaxing. One of our favorite things we did was watching the most amazing sunsets each evening. If you like hustle and busy places, I would recommend Clearwater, but if you like quite family oriented then Indian Rocks is the place! The cottage was perfect for two adults and our 4 lb. dog, who I might add was so excited for the beautiful evening sunsets. We did have a slight problem with shower. However, I will say the owner and all the staff were on it and very quick to take care of us. Maintenance fixed it up and all was well. I commend the staff for their kind and prompt attention to any questions or issues we had. We cannot wait till next summer to get back to Eiko's cottage! We are already on the countdown!
This cottage was perfect! This was the first time we stayed here, and it lived up to everything we expected. We will definitely stay here again! It was nicely decorated, clean, and had all the things needed to make our vacation relaxing and carefree. It was great to be able to do a load of laundry and bbq on the deck for dinner.
Sit on the deck, or walk down to the water and watch the sunset. Being so close to the beach made this the perfect place for us. The beach was clean, un-crowded and the water was superb.
The cottage is located close to many great restaurants and shopping. We would definitely recommend SeaBreeze and Crabby Bill’s. The food and service were great!
We had an excellent time at the cottage. You're literally right on the beach! It doesn't get much better than that. The bed and couches were comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and prepare meals. The deck had brand new wood, so there was no issue like the previous poster stated. Also the washer and dryer was a huge plus (it is located outdoors, but in a locked shed right next to the house). There is a dog park right across the street which was very nice because we brought our dogs. We can't wait to come back, this house was very nice!
My only negative was the rusty table and two chairs on the deck. It made me very nervous with my 9 month old. I didn't want him to cut himself or try to eat the rusty shards.
Other than that this is a perfect house for the price!
We rented this cottage in Indian Rocks Beach. According to their advertisment the cottage had a dishwasher. No dishwasher. The location was amazing but the property was very poorly kept. We wrote a lengthy letter to Kevin Jenkins (Pinellas Vacation Rentals) after we got there describing our problems with the cottage. He could not be bothered to reply or assist us. The pots were dirty with food and rust, the dishes were dirty, the nails in the outside deck had shifted and were raised, the only two outside chairs were rusty and broken, the front screen door would not fully open or close (which we remedied) and the fan in the bedroom had to be started by hand in order to spin. The blinds, if they worked at all, had to be carefully manipulated up or down by hand in conjunction with the cords. We informed Kevin that it was dangerous to walk in bare feet on the deck due to the raised nails and chunks of rust from the chairs. No response. We also found out that the two smoke detectors were inoperable, the central air had been broken and replaced by two ancient and noisey window air conditioners, there was no propane for the BBQ, and the couch was so broken down it was hard to get out of. As far as a management company goes for an owner or renter it seemed that once Kevin got your money you did not exist. He did not personally respond or help us in any way. The property advertisement was not factual and was mis-leading with regards to the dishwasher. This was important to us due to being unable to stand for longer than a short period and wash dishes.
We stayed here for a week in July with our 8 yr old grandson and we had a blast. The cottage is right "on the sand", as they say. The cottage was clean, and did need daily sweeping to get the sand off the tile, plenty of towels and linens, and a washer and dryer in the outside shed. It is smallish, but the three of us felt comfortable, as there is a sleep sofa in the living room. We were at the beach all day and really only used the cottage to eat and sleep in. There is a Publix supermarket right across the bridge, which is very convenient. The beach is lovely and had mostly families with all ages of children. Many set up canopy tents for the day, one of which is included at the cottage, but we did not use it. All in all we had a great week.
