About Robin M. Robertson

I bought this lovely original beach cottage to save it from the wrecker's ball from becoming a block of condos! When I saw the vaulted ceiling and hand-hewn beams, turned staircase and fireplace, I knew I could update it and save the character it possessed. I bought it in August of 2001, a month before 9/11 and made one of the upstairs bedroom a "flag room" to honor this date. I grew up in Tampa and my family spent many years summering in Indian Rocks Beach. I attended high school and college in Florida and currently live 2 mi. from Mi Casa in the town of Belleair Shore where my husband was Mayor for 16 years.

Why Robin M. Robertson chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I grew up in Tampa and went to high school and college in Florida. My family vacationed in Indian Rocks Beach in the summertime. I have many favorite memories of time spent on these beaches with my 3 sisters and parties and gatherings with their friends and children. I remember making homemade ice-cream, scalloping in the intercoastal waters and swimming in the gulf and walking and playing on the beaches.

Perfect Florida Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Indian Rock Beach and I have to say we were not disappointed. Mi Casa has everything you need to enjoy the beach - from beach towels to toys! Just a short walk to the beautiful beach. The Crazy Coconut ice cream and more store is right in your back yard, very convenient. A full stocked kitchen and plenty of space for a family sit down dinner. Washer and two dryers for you to keep it all clean and dry! There are many nearby restaurants and drinking holes within walking distance. We chartered a fishing boat – and brought home fresh red grouper for dinner one night, and it was delicious. Our family of 6 adults and 2 babies fit well in this wonderful old Florida style beach house. We plan to return soon - thank you Robin!!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Great house everything we were looking for. Great amenities, all you need is your clothes and food. Grocery store close by and I recommend the kooky coconut restaurant in the back yard, (great food). Great service!! When are family was sitting out on the patio, The owner (Robin) came over to check on us, great person. I asked her if she would have another lounger and she said she'll see what she can do. That afternoon she brought us a new lounger. Now that is what you call great service. So I hope the next guest can enjoy the great service and great beach house. The Theisen's

Everything you could possibly need!

  • 5 of 5

I have twice stayed at Mi Casa in the past two years and I must say it is the perfect beach house for a wonderful vacation. My wife and I stayed this past year with several friends and had more than enough room to fit us comfortably. Everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay and the beach is already there. Beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas were all there for our use which was great considering we couldn't have possibly traveled with those items. Many nights my wife and I would grab a couple beach chairs and walk down to the beach to look at the stars which were very plentiful. We had to buy our own food and drinks, of course, but everything you need to make and serve any type of meal is there. There is a small beach restaurant right around the corner that has great breakfast/lunch food and smoothies in case you don't want to bother with making every meal. A CVS and some nice restaurants are all within walking distance from the house as well. The decor and pictures all throughout the house give the place a great beach look and is very relaxing. I look forward to coming back next year. I highly recommend staying at Mi Casa especially if you are a tourist that prefers to travel lightly.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at Mi Casa with my brother-in-law's family, for a total of 9 people. We all loved the place! The owners were great to work with and the place looks better than the pictures. We loved the 'old' Florida 'feel' of the house. Almost everything you could possibly need was provided; we brought our own toiletries, but only shopped for food. Access to the beach was great and there were plenty of beach towels, chairs and toys provided. Attractions such as Clearwater Beach and John's Pass Village are just a short drive away. We are definitely saving the contact information for this one because we definitely plan on returning. We would highly recommend this house for anyone who wants to experience what Florida has to offer without the trappings of a tourist location. Thanks for the wonderful experience Mi Casa!

The Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Mi Casa over Thanksgiving week and absolutely fell in love with the beach house. We had 7 adults and 2 children and it was perfect for us. All the rooms were spacious and the kitchen was equipped with everything and anything you would need. Actually, the entire house was equipped with everything and anything you would need! My family and I love cooking together so we spent many mornings in the kitchen cooking up a storm. The beach was literally right behind the house and extremely convenient to get to. Beach toys, sand chairs, beach towels, etc. were readily available and plentiful. My 3yr old niece from Denver remembers the house fondly and will always refer to Mi Case as “our beach house”.

Thanks, Robin, for sharing Mi Casa with us. You were wonderful to work with and we would love to come back again soon!

Mi Casa experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "Mi Casa" with three other couples who traveled there from various parts of the country. What an absolute pleasant surprise were we in for when we arrived. The place was beautiful, clean, comfy beds, air conditioned, great patios, fantastically appointed with every single thing you could possibly need while staying there. The place seemed much more spacious than the pictures showed. The proximity to the beach was excellent, practically outside the back door! We were all very, very comfortable. All of us agreed that we would return in a NY minute to stay at "MiCasa". We couldn't have been luckier with the weather either, it was sunny and warm everyday, the water at the uncrowded beach was a fabulous 78 degrees. I would highly recommend.
