Overview

Indian Rocks Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This relaxing, updated home offers the best of many worlds; privacy, proximity to the beach and easy access to any big-city amenity! The beach is less than a block away; all the restaurants, parks, shopping and entertainment Indian Rocks Beach offers can be had with a short walk or bike ride; and more serious shopping or entertainment is just a short drive away! The home is tastefully decorated and is quiet and comfortable. A wonderful oasis after a day of fun in the sun. The private backyard features a custom Pebbletec pool with a large sunshelf and a spillover spa. There are no backyard neighbors - backs to a nature preserve.

About Indian Rocks Beach: Indian Rocks Beach is a perfect place to take long, leisurely strolls, but if you're more athletic, nothing beats running on the beach. A children's park is a block away while a park with tennis courts, a playground, and a skateboard park is a short 5-block walk north. For the more adventurous, jet-ski rentals, boat rentals, para-sailing, fishing charters, dinner cruises and more can be found a few miles north in Clearwater Beach, or a few miles south at the world-famous John's Pass. A wide variety of dining can be found in IRB, from quick in-&-out sandwich shops, to casual offerings from places like 'Pajanos Pizzeria', the British Pub-styled 'Red Lion Pub', 'Keegan's' or 'Crabby Bills' to the more upscale 'TJ's', 'Guppy's', and 'Villa Gallache' to name just a few.

About The Owner

We are local owners, who lived in the house for more than five years. We had twins in Dec 2009 and converted the house to a vacation rental shortly after. We love sharing our home and wonderful city with others.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Indian Rocks Beach

We loved the neighborhood and beach when we lived here. Our nightly ritual was to take a glass of wine to the beach each night for sunset. Great way to end the day!

What makes this house unique

The house is updated, with granite and a built in wine cooler. Perhaps the best part of the house is the private backyard with spa, pool and fenced yard backing to a nature preserve full of mangroves and local wildlife (Great Blue Herons and more!) We are a short block to the beach and provide a large wagon to take everything you need without breaking your back. We updated the home to our standards, this is not "just" a vacation rental for us.

We are happy to provide more pictures, just ask!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely LOVED this house and the area surrounding it. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We would love to return and bring our kids, as this trip was to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary, and it was perfect for that, but we know our children would love the pool, beach, and Nature walks! The house was beautiful and comfortable, we even called it 'home' while we were staying. Can't praise this house and the owners enough, it was simply an amazing time and we made some great memories here. ♥

Wonderful Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week after Christmas and had a wonderful time! We have rented other houses in the past and this house was by far the best one we have stayed in! The home was very clean, well appointed and no maintenance issues. We couldn't see anything wrong with this house. I really appreciated the welcome binder and the way everything was labeled. A lot of thought was put into this house for the guests. Loved all of the beach gear provided, it really made going to the beach fun! While it was too chilly to use the pool, we used the hot tub every night, which easily fit all 5 of us. The beds were comfy and the ceiling fans were a plus. The kitchen was well stocked with just about everything you would need. I really hope that we will be able to rent this house in the future, we were very pleased to have chosen this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Our guests tell us over and over that they choose out home largely based on our volume of honest reviews. We take a lot of pride in making the home a comfortable getaway, so glad that shows. We would love to host you again! Shelly & Jason

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week at the end of October. The house was perfect for our family. We have a 14 month old son and the house was stocked with everything we needed for him: pack and play, high chair, monitor, books, toys, beach toys, etc...

The house itself was very comfortable and had plenty of room. My dad and his girlfriend met my husband and I there. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The beds were very cozy.

The backyard with the pool and hot tub was awesome! We were a short walk from the beach (which was not crowded at all), and also a short walk to the park which our son loved. We walked through the Nature Reserve which backs up to the house every afternoon.

Jason and Shelly (the owners) were very helpful and answered any questions we had in a timely manner. They also allowed us to have a late check out which was very much appreciated!

We loved the town of Indian Rocks Beach. We ate at several of the local restaurants which were delicious. We hope to come back to this house again soon! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

The Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a great location. Quick walk to the beach, restaurants, and nature trail. The pool and hot tub were fabulous. Everything we needed was provided - beach towels, toys, chairs, umbrella, and so on. We only wish we could've stayed longer!

Wonderful house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at this wonderful house in May. It is just a short walk to the beach which was very nice and never crowded. The house came with everything we needed for us and our two small children. The kids loved the pool and we made use of it every day. There were even plenty of toys, stuffed animals and kids books. Everything was clean and well maintained. The location had a lot to offer with kids. We especially loved the turtle park just before the bridge to IRB. We saw a lot of animals there while we went for a nice walk and the big playground there was perfect for our kids.

The contact with the owners was very nice and we hope we will be able to come back some day!

"The Water House"

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to an immaculate house, a spacious living room, welcome note and complimentary bottle of wine. Our kids immediately keyed in on "their room" and the twin beds located within....the house was set up so well to accommodate our family and the outside pool area was great for an afternoon or evening swim. The beach was close enough that a walk played into the fun (1 block) and the playground close-by was also great for kids too. All in all the house was clean, well equipped and big enough for a family of five to have some much needed down time. The sunroom was clearly brand new and a nice place for an afternoon nap. Our children named the house "the water house" because of the pool and also enjoyed the visit every morning to the pool by the 2 herons from the nearby nature preserve....we will be back!

Owner's Response: Love the name! Our kids are a bit less imaginative - "the beach house". :-)

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Indian Rocks Beach and the house was perfect for our family. The pool and backyard area were perfect for afternoons after the beach. The beach is about a 5 minute walk from the house (we have a 4 year old) but the wagon makes the travel very easy. We rented a car and explored a lot of the areas north and south along the coast. I will say that Indian Rocks Beach is the place to stay in this area. There are so many wonderful restaurants and there aren't any of the large condos you see up north or to the south. We will definitely be returning.
