PERFECT GETAWAY - 1 BDRM GULF FRONT COTTAGE

Indian Rocks Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 persons MAX)

Welcome to Blue Heron Cottages located in beautiful Indian Rocks Beach. This cottage is a newly renovated 1 bedroom cottage and the only cottage at Blue Heron with a Direct gulf front view. From your private deck you can sit and relax in the chaise lounges we've provided and start your day with a cup of coffee and the newspaper, then end your day with the stunning sunset right in front of you.

If you are looking to get away with that special someone or planning to escape for some alone time, then this cottage is perfect for you. The master bedroom is a comfortable set up with a Queen bed and full size closet with dresser inside and surrounded by windows so you're never far away from enjoying the sites of the Gulf of Mexico.

Blue Heron Cottages is part of a small, well maintained complex that has been welcoming visitors back year after year. The heated pool is located directly across from the unit and also has a direct view of the Gulf, so you can relax by the pool and not be far from the sounds of the ocean.

Kitchen is well equipped with most everything you might need for those times you plan to stay in and cook, but know that we are close to many outstanding restaurants within walking distance or a short drive; Guppy's, Keegan's, Salt Rock Grill and Crabby Bill's just name a few.

If you are looking for a quiet vacation spot to relax and unwind in a non-commercial high rise setting, then look no further than this cottage at Blue Heron. Please make sure your read our reviews. Our past renters provide helpful information on the cottage itself, but also the beaches, the area and the Blue Heron Complex. Inquire today - we'd love to have you!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Hi Jamie,



We loved your cottage and Indian Rocks Beach; it was the highlight of our vacation! Best VRBO ever. We are hoping to come back next year, we loved it so much ! We will certainly look up Blue Heron Cottage when we come back. We appreciated the simplicity and well stocked cottage. It was very clean, no bugs and the fresh cut flowers were a nice touch. Everything we needed and wanted was there. The information and drawer full to restaurants, menus and the donut tip were great. We loved the deck and the umbrella. And the beach only a few steps from the cottage was awesome! Thanks again for letting us stay at this wonderful cottage.

OUR FIRST STAY

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was beautiful, clean, and full of all of the comforts of home. Tom surprised me with a impromptu sunset cocktail party on the deck for my b-day, we invited our closest friends and even some of the neighbors joined us. We hope to return again, and again as it truley exceeded our expectations. Much Love, Minda & Tom

GREAT PLACE TO BE

  • 5 of 5
This was a great vacation. If you want to relax and be steps away from the ocean and pool, this is the place to be. The pictures are exactly the way it looks. The pool was a nice size and hardly any body ever in it. It was like our own private pool. The deck is perfect for the sunsets and just relaxing. Great fro 2 people, would be nice for a honeymoon. The beach is quiet and family oriented. No lines of umbrellas or loud music. Jamie has some nice brochures on local places to eat. We ate out 1 time at Slyce Pizza. It was good. We prefer to grill out a lot. We found a fresh seafood place and a fresh meat market with organic beef. The T-bones were excellent. Overall a great place and we will be back next year!

Owner's Response: Hi CV and thank you for taking the time to write such an awesome and thorough review. You painted such a great picture of the area and the beach which is always so helpful when people are searching for a place to spend a few days away and you're right - it is great location for a honeymoon. Look forward to having you back again next year - she'll be ready and waiting. Cheers and enjoy the rest of your summer.

PICTURE PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Blue Heron Cottage really is Picture Perfect in every way. It is decorated Perfectly just as you would imagine a beach cottage should be. It is Perfectly located with restaurants a short walking distance away. The Perfect beach deck to enjoy pre-sunset cocktails on. Best of all Perfect sunsets that will take your breath away. Jamie the owner is such a Pleasure to deal with and added the Perfect Welcoming touch. The push button keyless entry lock also has an amazing feature, it automatically de-stresses you as you enter, like I said, it is Perfect. Come see for yourself we are sure you'll agree.

HEAVENLY ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Jamie. The cottage was exactly as we pictured it. It was wonderful to be able to relax in such a cute cottage and get away from the cold up in PA! The beach was beautiful. We took many long walks on the beach. Each morning started with a cup of coffee on the deck and ended there with a drink! Clearwater Beach was quite close and we made two trips up. On Sunday evening the week before Christmas and were surprised to find a Winter Festival on Pier 60 and had an lovely time walking around all the craft vendors and street performers. Another evening we had an excellent dinner at Guppy's. It was an amazing and relaxing getaway.

GREAT COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Blue Heron Cottages. The cottage was spotless and in an amazing location. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Great bed - easy on the back. The place is in a super convenient location near some great places to eat and get an adult beverage. We cant recommend it enough. Next time we come to Florida we will pick it again. Enjoy your visit - we sure did. Oh one last thing....amazing sunsets from the back deck!

OCEANVIEW DECK MAKES THIS COTTAGE THE BEST CHOICE

  • 5 of 5
Our week's stay in Jamie's cottage was delightful. As we departed, we decided Cottage 1 is the best of all the Blue Heron cottages, and Blue Heron is the best of all rentals at IRB. The deck is one of the best features; we spent lazy afternoons reading and listening to the ocean (which is just a few yards away). We made sure to watch the sun set on the Gulf each evening. The cottage decor is fun and beachy and we appreciated the wireless hookup. One small thing makes a big difference: the keyless entry made life simple; no more fishing for the right key. Don't miss the Cafe de Paris, a French bakery a short walk away from Blue Heron. We appreciated Jamie's responsiveness. She checked in by phone midway through our stay.

Owner's Response: WOW....Thank you so much for taking the time to write this and for your thoughtfulness. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy your time in the area and of course take full advantage of what the cottage has to offer - especially the deck and oceanview, which is always a good thing! We hope to hear from you guys again should your travels bring you back our way. I'll take this time to wish you and your family a very happy and healthy Holiday Season. Thanks again!!!
