Overview

Indian Rocks Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

This cottage is two short blocks from the beach on a beautiful barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. There are two attached cottages on this property. They are mirror images. Both cottages have been completely renovated and have open beam ceilings, terrazzo floors, new central heat and air and new kitchen and bathroom. There is plenty of outdoor space to sit and relax with a glass of wine or just enjoy the beautiful weather. The cottages are within walking distance to several restaurants, bakery, ice cream parlor and pub. They are near the trolley stop which allows one to explore many miles along the gulf beaches. Our tropical landscaping, patios, and coconut palms all contribute to creating a very relaxing 'Old Florida' feeling.

Bring your Boat, this property is located just two short blocks from the beach, on a large corner lot with plenty of parking for your boat. There is a newly built boat ramp nearby with parking for your car. Indian Rocks Beach is a beautiful spot of pristine white sandy beaches and sparkling water perfect for swimming. It is located on the 12 mile string of tropical barrier islands between Clearwater and St. Petersburg Florida.

We are conveniently located 45 minutes from Bush Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo and Ybor City and 1.5 hours away from Disney World and Universal Studios.

Indian Rocks Beach has been written up by a major newspaper for being one of the few remaining quaint beach towns, essentially unspoiled by commercialism. You can sit down with the locals and enjoy a plate of seafood at one our excellent restaurants or have an ice cream cone at the local parlor. For breakfast enjoy a cup of coffee and a treat at the local bakery. All within walking distance.

Not much has changed from the easy living that brought people here in the 1920's.

For the more adventurous there is parasailing, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, tennis, racquetball, golf, dolphin encounters and sailing.

Yes, we are located on an island with miles and miles of continuous beaches.

It's your vacation. Do as much or as little as you please

Excellent, very close to beach

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for a week in late Dec/early Jan. The property was as described, well-laid out, clean. It was nice to stay in a quiet residential area and was very close to beach for daily walks (despite cool temps). Nice outdoor areas at back of house and at side of house. Terrazzo floors made clean up very easy. Owners checked in on us and were very nice. We found fresh seafood and vegetables easy to access and cooked all our meals. This is a densely populated area in Florida....so driving around took a while....lots of stop lights. But the neighborhood was quiet and the beaches were not over-crowded. We would visit again...and we would recommend this property. The only thing that would have made this site perfect would be if we could have brought our dogs....but dogs aren't allowed on beach here anyway, so not a big issue at all.

Terrific place, terrific location

  • 5 of 5
We felt instantly at home in the blue cottage and the feeling never changed during our nearly seven-week stay. The cottage was very clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, well-equipped, and beautifully landscaped. Idalmis was wonderful -- friendly, accessible, and accommodating. We also thoroughly enjoyed being in Indian Rocks Beach. The beaches are beautiful and there are plenty of good restaurants in close proximity (Guppy's, Slyce, Cafe de Paris Bakery, to name just a few). We look forward to returning and would definitely recommend the cottages to friends or relatives.

Sorry it took so long to write a review. My wife and I stayed here in March 2011 and had a great time here. Such a nice place, and such nice owners, they came by to do yard work and check to see if things were O.K. Nice neighborhood, made you feel right at home, close to the beach and places to eat. Will for sure come back here again!!

Great Cottage, Great Area, Indian Rocks Beach

  • 5 of 5
When my husband and I opened the door of the cottage the biggest smiles were on our faces. Everything was just like the photos, even better! I had spent hours looking for a place and we had everything we needed and more. We could walk to several restaurants and the French bakery two blocks away was a treat. To be able to walk to the beach every day was the best and at sunset a special treat. We enjoyed ourselves so much we are going back next year.
