CUTE, COZY PRIVATE BEACH HOUSE, DIRECTLY ON THE GULF

Indian Shores House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8 (9 with a high-rise aero bed)

'Tween Waters Cottage' is the perfect family beach house for those who want to soothe their souls by the sea. Nestled directly on the never-crowded sugar-white sands of Indian Shores between two other single-family homes, this clean, cozy house has all the charm of Old Florida and all the modern amenities you could desire, including two (2) flat-panel high-definition cable TV's, free phone service to the USA or Canada, free Wi-Fi and a printer -- so bring your computer.

There's a water view from every room, a porch or deck off each of the 3 upstairs bedrooms, and a private dock across the street.

You'll enjoy the large gas barbecue grill, the Gulf-front picnic shelter for lunches by the shore, and the padded sun-loungers and Adirondack chairs for leisurely reading or cocktails and conversation at sunset.

The first-floor den/4th bedroom (queen bed) with adjoining bathroom is perfect for those who don't want to navigate stairs. Just step out the door onto the beach!

Privacy and Tranquility: There are no high-rise condos within a thousand feet of 'Tween Waters Cottage,' so the beach is very tranquil. No shared walls with neighbors... no competing for elevator time or chairs on the beach. This is your own little corner of paradise... a world away from the cares of everyday life. Come to relax, have fun, and re-connect with loved ones. Plenty of room for the youngsters to run on the beach; plenty of creature comforts for the older folks. Every modern convenience is at your fingertips... or a short drive away. There's even a computer printer to print out your boarding passes when it's time to go. But you'll be back -- for the sunshine, the sand, and the chance to restore your soul at 'Tween Waters Cottage.'

Why the Owner Chose Beach House:: 'Tween Waters Cottage' is only 30 minutes away from our main family home in St. Petersburg. This ensures we are nearby to respond quickly if our guests need us -- and makes it easy for us to use the Cottage frequently ourselves. The Unique Benefits at this House: Year Purchased: 1990 - 'Tween Waters Cottage' has a very peaceful, private atmosphere. No canyons of condos. The house is a rarity in our part of Florida -- a direct beachfront single-family home nestled between two other single-family homes. There are plenty of restaurants and activities nearby... but coming home to the Cottage makes you feel like you are entering another world... and leaving your cares behind.

Owner Description/Comments: : We both cherish our childhood memories of vacations at the shore. For Barbara, it was picnics on the sand and swimming in the ocean. For Dan, it was fun times with family water-skiing and boating. So, when the rare opportunity came to purchase our own beachfront vacation home with a dock for boating and fishing, we couldn't pass it up. Now we share our precious find with other families looking to relax and re-connect by the sea.

HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
Heaven!! I spent all my childhood in the 50's at these beaches every summer and this house and property brought it all back! The shade of those beautiful Australian pines was one of the best features of the house. Inside everything was just right with ammenities. Enough room for everybody plus the occasional visitors. We would recommend this house and would absolutely consider renting again. This back yard is what all these beaches looked like in the 50's. Nice to know some of this beauty is still there!

Dr. Dan's rental is an excellent place to go for families or couples. It's quiet, has everything you really would need on site. Our family has been twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed our experiences. Just wake up, stroll onto beautiful quiet beach and enjoy. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

LABOR DAY WATERFRONT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
The house is great with all the accomodations, equipment and extra stuff needed. Enough room for 4 couples. The location is amazing. There is a boat cementery, but it gives it character. In summary I loved it and we are planning to go back next year. I would recommend it without hesitation.

WE WILL RETURN!

  • 5 of 5
What could be better than a house right on the beach? Not much let me tell you! My girlfriend, her two children (12 and 18) and her Dad and I stayed at this fantastic location for a week and we wish we could have stayed forever.
The house has everything you could ever need. In fact we brought some crab home from a local restaurant (the local restaurants rock, by the way) and then realized we needed crackers. We searched the drawers in the kitchen and low and behold, there they were! Amazing! There is even water toys, a canoe, a paddle boat and fishing rods!
We did have a small plumbing issue, but the "Dan's" fixed it! Thanks so much.
If you want easy access to some of the most fabulous beach and water in the world and you want a comfortable, well equipped house to stay in, this is the place.
Thanks to the Callahan family for an amazing stay and we WILL be back!

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2013

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for Memorial day weekend. It is AMAZING! It was like our own lil peice of heaven. The house is well maintained and includes anything you might need, from linens- beach chairs. It has a full kitchen full of pots and pans and dishes and silverware so cooking anything is no problem. Has a dishwasher and washer/dryer. We never had to leave, and the owner was just a phone call away in case anything happened so that made us feel better too.It was just beautiful! The view was incredible and its just a few steps to the beach from the back door. Very kid friendly as we had a 2 and 5 year old with us. One of the rooms has bunk beds and are kids had a blast. I would highly recommend this home for anyone who wants a real taste of Florida. It quiet and tranquil yet close to shopping and resturaunts should you want them. I will stay here again and again if possible. We loved it and could not have asked for a better getaway. Thank you Dr. Dan for such a wonderful time!

Indian Shores is a small, safe, pleasant beach community close to a host of activities in the vibrant metropolitan area of Clearwater-Tampa-St. Petersburg. Restaurants, shops, parks, museums, botanical gardens, cinema, live theater, professional sports, and concert venues are all within a short walk or drive (5-30 minutes), as are two major airports: Tampa International and St. Petersburg-Clearwater. Indian Shores occupies a narrow barrier island between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway. Nature-lovers, boaters, and fishermen enjoy both bodies of water. The soft sand and gentle wave action make the Gulf waters perfect for swimmers of all ages. There is sunshine nearly every day of the year -- with magnificent sunrises and sunsets to enjoy for free!

Other Activities: Miniature golf, nature parks, boat & bike rentals, professional sports
