Overview

Florida Central Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Historic two story Gulf front vacation. The home has four bedrooms, and two full bathrooms and is directly on the beach. This house has the charm of an original Florida beach house with all the modern amenities. Fully furnished with beautiful teak furniture and oriental rugs in the living room and dining room, and antique wicker furniture in the enclosed front porch. Central heat and air with ceiling fans throughout. We are on a unique double wide lot on Indian Rocks Beach - one of the most desired beaches on Florida's west coast. Our beach is private and quiet - no crowds here! No noisy neighbors or waiting for the elevator at a condo. We're nestled between the intercoastal waterway and the Gulf of Mexico. You can fish or dock a boat on your private dock across the street. Back on the beach, enjoy a cocktail on the open porch and enjoy spectacular sunsets with nothing blocking your view! Once you arrive, you won't want to leave!

Like Staying With Old Friends

  • 4 of 5

Imagine that your friends said "feel free to use our beach cottage while we are away". And that beach cottage is right on the beach in Indian Rocks. That is the feeling you get when you enter this cottage. It has a friendly, homey feel as though the owners have just stepped away for a few days. It also means that the decor and tons of supplies make you comfortable and at home. The cottage is right on a quiet section of the beach and also within easy walking distance of restaurants. It is a short drive to a Publix on "the mainland". We spent most of our time on the patio which is shaded and overlooks the water. A great place to eat meals. The cottage can easily sleep 8 people in four bedrooms. The master bedroom is just lovely with wonderful light and a full view of the water.

My only complaint is that all the windows are sealed shut. There is central air conditioning, but that does not help when you need ventilation in the bathrooms. Also, there are often wonderful breezes in the evening and it would be great to use those to cool down the rooms rather than airconditioning. You may also find that the two bathrooms are a bit small.

Blissful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for ten days over Spring Break. It was totally peaceful, amazingly atmospheric and we all loved it. It's so nice not to be in a big high rise (or surrounded by high rises) and the longer we stayed and saw more of the Sunset Coast the more we realised how lucky we were to have hit upon this place. The owners were really helpful when one of the ceiling fans broke down, coming out themselves to fit a new one within 24 hours (on a weekend!). The house contains every thing we could need and it was great to be walking distance to restaurants and most importantly, the best ice cream parlour we've found since getting here. What more could we want?

Beach house paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 days in this wonderful beach house. Everything was as described and the house is even lovlier than the pictures shows. It was spacious enough for two families (4 adults and 4 children).

We found everything we needed in the house. It was really clean and well maintained.

The beautiful and tranquile beach is a few steps away.

Karen (the owner) is great! Helpful and caring.

We loved our stay in this fantastic place!

We want to come back soon!!

Incredible Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here in March, 2014. We had an great vacation and this place was the ideal location for what we were looking for. It was amazing to walk out the back door and be on the beach. Great dining options very nearby, either by foot (I recommend walking the beach rather than on the road) or a short drive. Owners were very responsive prior to our visit, and during, although we didn't really need to contact them for anything while we were there. We would definitely go back.

Fantastic Beach House STEPS From the Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic vacation we had!!! Our family of four (me, my husband & our 7 & 9 year old kids) spent an incredible, relaxing, fun week at this beautiful house. The pictures perfectly depict the house. It is very charming and relaxing with plenty of room for our family (with plenty of room to spare).

The description of the house was very accurate. We found literally everything we needed there: cooking utensils, a blender, grills (gas & charcoal), beach towels, a washer & dryer, beach chairs and more beach toys than you could even think about playing with. They even had a bocce ball set & a paddle ball set that we got a great deal of enjoyment out of.

The pictures that show the proximity of the house to the beach are not doctored - you are THAT close!!! It made it very convenient when someone had to make a quick bathroom trip or a special drink or snack was forgotten. We spent almost every day on the beach having SO much fun!!!

For the times that we wanted to eat out, we found the nearby restaurants were really great. Slyce Pizza was particularly awesome (went there more than once) and JDs was great too (with live music every time we went). A couple of times that week, we took a long stroll down the beach and made our way to the Kooky Coconut for some of the best ice cream I've had. It was a bit of a walk, but you don't think about it while walking on that gorgeous beach. We saw several cranes on one of our walks there.

There is a grocery store within driving distance that has everything you'd need. We even made two different trips during the week to Legoland & Busch Gardens (both within 1-2 hours from the house). Our favorite times were at the house, relaxing on the beach, eating on the porch & watching the view, drinking coffee on the sun porch & watching the beautiful sunset.

The property was clean and very well-maintained. Karen (the owner) was beyond great. She was very responsive and helpful. Our daughter even left behind her beloved stuffed animal (which we didn't discover until unpacking the night we got back home). We immediately contacted Karen; she got in touch with the cleaning service & they promptly mailed her back home, safe & sound (with a very sweet note). It was very touching to see the personal touch that Karen provided, and our daughter was so thankful to have her "lovey" returned so quickly.

We would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone! We cannot wait to come back!!

Charming

  • 5 of 5

This Beach House is charming and welcoming. We were 2 families and we found everything we needed: a comfortable bed for everybody, baby equipment, a lot of beach toys, beach towels, and boogie boards. We also appreciated the large family table that can sit 10 persons. The house was very clean and it seems to be one of the last stand-alone houses of the area. The beach was amazing and very warm. We saw some dolphins, rays, crabs and fishes and gather many shells. It is a family-owned house and the owner is nice to deal with. She prepared all the information we needed and was available for all questions we had. I would highly recommend this Beach House.
