Overview

Indian Rocks Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

SANDY SHORES

has three beautiful cottages:

THE GULF

THE PATIO (see #508989) and

THE GARDEN (see#508994) and

has been in the Hall family for over 60 years, and is currently owned and operated by Myrtle Hall. Myrtle is German-born and moved to Indian Rocks Beach in 2000 when she married her late husband, Ned. Ned’s grandmother bought the Indian Rocks Beach property in 1946. Ned's father George Hall built the first, two-story building in 1952. The one-story Gulf Cottage followed in 1972. Ned's family lived here in the winter, and spent the summer in Ithaca, NY, where his father was the Golf Coach at Cornell University for over 40 years. Ned followed in his footsteps as a PGA Teaching Professional for over 25 years. He was teaching at the Clearwater Golf Club located in Clearwater, Florida when Myrtle, in Florida on holiday from Germany, met him in 1998. Myrtle and Ned, of course, had their wedding right in front of beautiful Sandy Shores!

Like Ned, Myrtle fell in love with this beautiful property and its rich family history. Ned and Myrtle started to rent out their cottages in 2005 after a complete beautification and enjoyed every minute of sharing this lovely property with their guests. Myrtle carries on the Hall family tradition of hospitality at Sandy Shores and adds her special brand of German warmth. Her attention to detail and cleanliness makes Sandy Shores a unique and charming retreat.

Surf, sand and sun, coupled with quiet solitude, magnificent sunsets, and the shade of the Australian Pines make this the perfect getaway spot. You will enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - perfect for a morning stroll or an afternoon shelling expedition, as well as beautiful-maintained accommodations. Sandy Shores is a slice of Old Florida at it's very finest.

About Myrtle Hall

Sandy Shores has been in my late husband, Ned's, family for over 60 years. Ned's Grandmother bought it in 1946 and his Father built the first two story building in 1952 and the Gulf Cottage followed in 1972.

I live onsite so I am available during your stay. I've also worked for 12 years in a local bank. One of the things my guests repeatedly tell me, is that they can see my love for Sandy Shores in the cleanliness and beauty of the property. I take pride in knowing my attention to detail ensures my guests have the most comfortable stay. And, for my German visitors, I enjoy speaking German to help you feel at home.

Myrtle Hall purchased this cottage in 1946

Why Myrtle Hall chose Indian Rocks Beach

We started to rent out our cottages in 2005 after a total beautification and enjoying ever since every minute of sharing this lovely property with all our guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Rest in our secluded gardens, enjoy the shade under our beautiful Australian Pine Trees and watch the Gulf of Mexico and the fantastic sunsets from your living room and dining area. You can't get any closer to the dunes and beach.

My wife and I stayed in the beachfront cottage and loved it. Myrtle and her staff were wonderful in making sure everything was to our satisfaction. The cottage was very clean and tidy with beautiful appointments through out and only a few steps to the beach. It is walking distance to drugstore, seafood restaurants, bakery etc. The sunsets were amazing. Will we stay there again? Absolutely yes.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Gulf Cottage for 4 nights recently. We have been to the IRB area before and stayed at other place but this was the best without a doubt. Reasonably priced, owner on site, wonderful quiet location right on the beach with a short walk of a few steps to the ocean beach and its' tranquil waves and sunsets. Very comfortable bed and accomadations and some groceries etc were already provided that had been left by previous guests. The owner Myrtle is a sweet lady and has done an excellent job carrying on in spite of a recent loss. Walk 3 blocks to PJ'S for the best raw oysters, grouper sandwich, and other seafood. CVS drug store across street. Beach bicycle rental and other amenities withing a few blocks also. We shall return to this wonderful spot and kind host in the future!

Anniversary Get Away!

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Sandy Shores. Myrtle was a very nice lady. My wife's name is Myrtle too!! The cottage was very nice and clean. We had everything we needed including beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels etc. We love that there are restaurants within walking distance! The beach was not crowded. But watch those sea gulls!! They love potato chips!
We will be back for a longer visit!

Best vacation ever! Love this place!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the cottage! It was perfect for us. Cozy and right at beach with a beautiful view from the patio area. With the large trees over the property there is always a cool breeze no matter how hot! Myrtle is a joy. She offers everything you need..beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, laundry room. Also, there were great restaurants just across the street, including a cvs and icecream shop so once there you never really have to get in your car to go anywhere(except grocery store if you want and that is only a few miles away!) I felt very safe in the area and it was very quiet yet all the action you want at the restarants across the street including live music at sunset every night. and there was never very many people on the beach! It was incredible! No crowds like in clearwater. very secluded and family friendly. Only suggestion I would have would be to get a new mattress for the bed. I am particular though so may be fine for others. I would highly recommend for anyone. and will be returning next time i am in Tampa/ Indian Rocks beach area. (also just a short one hour ride to Tampa) . Thanks again for everything Myrtle. You were so helpful with everything. It was wonderful meeting you! You really have a great place there! It was just like a home away from home staying there, very comfortable.

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place. The accommodations were excellent, all conveniences, very clean. We live only an hour away from beaches, so we frequent the area often. This is by far one of the best yet. We made our reservations for a return visit before leaving.
The beach is quiet and pristine good for fishing and water activities.
