An ideal vacation home, this beautiful 4 bedroom 3 bath home comfortably sleeps 12. The upper level features a huge, 27’ x 24’ master suite, and a wet bar with compact refrigerator and large walk-in closet. There is a 16’ x 11’ luxurious master bath with double vanity, Whirlpool tub and separate steam shower. You can also exit the bathroom or bedroom onto the large 2nd level deck, which overlooks the oasis-like backyard and the nature preserve beyond it. Upstairs bedroom sleeps 4, with Queen-sized bed and futon. Best of all, you can exit your bed/bath onto the deck and enjoy the view from the patio table above, or walk down the spiral staircase to party at pool level!
On the main floor are three large bedrooms, 2 have lofts and twin bed/futon, with a bathroom to share on their side of the house. Off the dining room is another large bedroom with a Queen-sized bed and bathroom off it.
There are TVs in the upstairs master bedroom, largest downstairs bedroom and liv room
Just coming from the beach? Outside there is a shower, changing room and 8’ x 8’ wooden storage shed on concrete slabs. The fenced-in backyard backs up to a nature preserve for total privacy. The pool is warm year-round thanks to the solar-heating panels on the roof. The spa spills over into the pool. Also aiding the relaxing environment is a fountain in the back corner of the lot.
In front of the house is a large horseshoe-shaped driveway, which easily fits 3 vehicles. There is also a one-car garage.
A short walk away ...
Exit the house to your left (west) and you will be walking on the flour-like sands of Indian Rocks Beach. Hail a trolley ($2-$3) and ride north to Clearwater Beach in 10 mins. or down to St. Pete's in 15.
Exit the house straight (north) and within 3 minutes you will be at a state-of-the-art skateboard park, basketball and tennis courts, and baseball field.
Exit to the right (east) and you will be at the cleanest playground you've ever seen, and at the back of it is an entrance to the nature preserve. The preserve is a new path (you're walking on boards with handrails elevated above the ground/water) that winds around the inlet (see Google Earth) and exits next to a dog park (if you brought your 'best friend,' he'll love this park, complete with fire hydrant!).
Need your internet? We've got it. Lightning fast connections and WiFi available throughout the house. Also, DirecTV, complete with the NFL Sunday Ticket, Major League Baseball Extra Innings, NHL Center Ice, NASCAR Hot Pass and NBA Season Pass is available on the flat screen TV set in the living room. We also have HBO, Showtime, Starz and Cinemax included. For you folks who want the Cricket Ticket, call me and I'll make that happen, too (I'm a DirecTV dealer!). There are 2 50' plasma screens, 1 46' plasma, 1 32' LCD and 1 27' LCD.
Of course, there's a dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, and a fully-stocked kitchen with service for 12. Everything from a blender to beaters is included.
The linens are also newer, with high-thread count sheets and comfortable bedding.
A couple of bikes, pool toys, wagon for hauling stuff to the beach, board games, and other pleasant surprises await!

Indian Rocks Beach is where we chose to live, because it is near the beach, is a quiet community with first-rate services (trash pickup two days a week, high speed internet, city water/sewage) ...
It's proximity to major attractions and airports is also a wonderful asset. At the end of the day, though, we want a place where we can relax, enjoy our privacy, and go for walks along the beach, through the Nature Preserve, etc ...
Every day we go to the beach, without exception. Who can be stressed with sand between their toes? We are very fortunate to have found a spacious home so close to the water, yet far enough where you NEVER hear any of the traffic on Gulf Blvd. It truly is the ideal location/home -- for us anyway.
Perfect location. Ideal place to relax and soak in the sun and nearby activities. Quick walk to beach, where my son and I spent at least 2 hours each day, and plenty of room to kick back and wind down at day's end. An added bonus is DirecTV with all movies and sporting events available. We didn't go on vacation to watch TV, but it's nice to kick back and watch a Cincinnati Reds game while eating dinner!
Exit our home and 4 minutes walking to the west (900 feet) is the white sand and the Gulf of Mexico. Walk to the right (east) and you have a pristine children's playground with all new heavy-duty plastic equipment. This playground also serves as the rear entrance to the Nature Preserve, which if you walk the trails, will lead you to a spacious dog park on the other side! Walk straight out of the house toward Kolb Park and you have all sorts of activities for kids (or adults) of any age, including a baseball field, lit basketball/tennis courts, skate park, etc ... This park is about an 8-minute walk, but my son and I rollerblade there in about half that time. Simply put, this is the ideal spot to vacation, if you're looking to have plenty of space, your own pool and spa, privacy, and proximity to all the family activities people enjoy while on vacation.
