You will see some of the most spectacular sunsets the Gulf coast has to offer from almost every room. Two balconies provide extraordinary views and gulf breezes. Relax in the rocking chairs on the balcony while you watch the sun melt into the gulf signaling an end to daytime activities and a kick off to the celebration of another evening on the Gulf.. Rest peacefully at the end of the day in the large master suite (15' x 30') with King size bed, large bath with double vanities, separate tub and shower, The 2nd bedroom offers queen bed, and the 3rd bedroom has two twin beds. This home offers 1700 sq. ft of living space which includes living and dining rooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. The beach decor sets the tone for a fun get away from the ordinary. Let the stresses of everyday life slip away as you take in the sights, sounds and smells of the Gulf of Mexico: breathe in the salt air, listen to the waves, and watch the sun fade into the horizon.

We both grew up in the Tampa Bay area and spent many summers and vacations at the beach with family and friends. We had so many special memories, we always wanted a place of our own on the beach. Belleair Beach was our choice. The first time we walked through the door of this charming beach house we fell in love with it. The view of the gulf was breathtaking.
Judi Roberts purchased this house in 1999
Belleair Beach is one of the most beautiful on Florida's Gulf Coast. It is a quiet, safe, prestigious, residential beach town, essentially unspoiled by commercialism (no high rises are allowed), only estate homes and two and three story structures. Our two story stilt home is as high as you can go in Belleair and our views are spectacular! If you want to spend a day at a crowded, 'people watch' beach you can drive a few minutes north to Clearwater Beach for the day.
The only thing between us and the gulf is a short walk through the sea oat covered dune and a few feet of sand to the water's edge. Enjoy an early morning or evening walk along the beach. If you walk south you will see magnificent estate homes (you might even spot a celebrity). Walk north to Sand Key, a land of commerce and overzealous high rise development but at the north end is a sliver of sanity amid the madness. Sand Key Park is a 95 acre oasis of calm. It is popular with day trippers, surfers, skim boarders, and fishermen. The long wide sandy beach is a big draw and the facilities are excellent.
We spent a wonderful week on bellaire beach in the Roberts spic and span tastefully appointed beach house with our daughter, our favorite son in law and our two delightful grandchildren! We loved being ON the beach. We appreciated that "our" beach was not crowded and that we could go up to clearwater in minutes whenever we needed a people fix. My favorite times were early morning walks on the beach with my granddaughter...cherished memory! Great kitchen, master bedroom and balconies...Thank you Roberts for sharing your special home with us,
Can't say enough about this place. The location is speaks for itself. Sunsets every night from the two decks. The house is very well equipped and exceptionally comfortable. We even enjoyed the long morning walks to the little French cafe in Indian Rocks and the little shopping center just to the north. The Roberts are incredible hosts. We will be staying here again.
Our group included 6 adults, a 2 year old and an infant, and we could not have been more comfortable or well accommodated. The house is as described - right on the oceanfront with unimpeded access, beautiful sunsets, everything we were hoping for. Rooms are of ample size and the house was very well stocked with cooking utensils, linens and pretty much everything we needed. Many restaurants within a short drive - I highly recommend Guppy's -- and supermarkets, golf and other attractions are not far away. Probably 40 minutes from TPA and 20 minutes from PIE, which was great because we had people flying in and out during the week. Judi was attentive to our particular needs with the young children, communication was great, and our deposit retuned promptly. I fully expect to revisit in the future and do not hesitate in recommending this rental to others.
My husband & I rented this house for a week for family vacation. We enjoyed our stay very much, but our 4 year old Grandson enjoyed it the most!! We could literally walk out house, down stairs & out to beach! Everything we needed to enjoy our time was available. Beach chairs, toys, towels, etc... House is located in nice location to attractions & grocery store. Nice to have area under house to sit out during evenings to grill & hang-out. Highly recommend this house for families or girls getaway! Hope to return someday for another stay!
I will give my honest first impression- I was tired when we got there. We have a 3.5 year old and a 9 month old, stopped at the grocery store and was immediately greeted with stairs. I don't know why I didn't realize it would have stairs to the main house but that was a little challenging with two kids and two arms full of groceries. Go to store AFTER you arrive. The houses I am use to staying in literally have a roll of toilet paper, one trash bag, and if you are lucky a half used roll of paper towels. The only item we had to purchase were saran wrap, foil, and paper towels. I read the house was well stocked- They weren't kidding. It was so nice not having to worry about the little things. The Roberts really make you feel like you are staying at home. The house was perfect for our family of 4. But what was even more incredible was the beach. I have stayed in Siesta Key, Panama City Beach, and Ana Marie Island. If you want low key, quiet, not tourist congested--this is the place to go. There were a TON of shells on the beach which my daughter loved. The sand was nice, the ocean was warm and shallow. It really is a slice of paradise. We enjoyed watching the sun set from the amazing balconies off the house every night. The kitchen is large and updated. The house was so clean and fresh. My only complaint and its not even valid, is there is carpet upstairs. I walked on it with white socks and there were still white after an hour so even though that was little a turn off for me,But IT IS SUPER CLEAN! One night it rained and we found a ton of games under the TV cabinet in the living room. My daughter was just starting to crawl so we spent a lot of time in the master bedroom since it was carpet and the first floor is all tile. The master bedroom is huge....It truly was a retreat. We had an incredible time and will be returning. I can not Thanks Judi enough for letting us into their home. We made so many amazing memories. I HIGHLY recommend this house for a family, or couples. You will not regret it.
Stayed at this beachfront home during Spring Break 2015 with family of 5. Wonderful home and location. Two balconies provide fantastic views from the house. 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Nice kitchen with great dining area - table great for dining and board games. Dining locations a short drive away.
Would recommend to family and friends and if ever back in Belleair Beach, would rent again.
Belleair Beach is located 4 miles from world famous Clearwater Beach with many restaurants and activities. It is only 30 miles west of Tampa activities including Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium, Adventure Island Water Theme Park, Lowery Park Zoo and International Mall. Tampa is home to the Tampa Bay Bucs, Tampa Bay Lightning, and spring training home of the New York Yankees. 90 minutes from Disney World Orlando, Seaworld, Epcot, Universal Theme Park, and many other attractions.
