Guestbook comments from the manager

Sarah's Seaside Resort is first-class all the way. From the moment you walk into the lush gardens, you feel like your in paradise. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. We were pleasantly greeted by Mary, who gave us a tour of the grounds and made sure we were accommodated.

We stayed in the 1 bed/1 bath unit. It was completely updated with new cabinets, granite countertops, stainless appliances as well as updated furniture. The heated pool was definitely a plus in March and was kept very clean. We were steps from the beach and very much enjoyed the beach cabanas. The cabanas, along with beach toys for the kids and kayaks, were most definitely a nice touch.

Sarah's Seaside was very conveniently located to Crabby Bill's and other fine restaurantsl All were within walking distance, which made it nice to avoid driving in the Spring Break traffic.

I really have no complaints at all about our stay. In fact, we booked right away for next year so that we don't miss out the opportunity to stay again.

It was apparent from our stay that Gulfside Resorts takes pride in their properties and goes out of their way to take care of their guests.

Hidden slice of paradise.

Wonderful place. Clean, roomy and on the beach. Had a great stay in 306c. Close to great places to dine and to grab an ice cream too. Lias was wonderful in showing us around the grounds and giving us info on things to do and where to eat. Meeting Lee and Mary on check in was like see family very friendly and nice. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Sarah's Seaside in the 2 bedroom cottage. It was so quaint and private. It was very clean and had everything I could have wanted. The pool was shared by the few units in this cottage community and we were able to get to know our neighbors. It was very secure and whatever we needed was quickly addressed. I enjoyed my visit so much - and having beautiful beach days for 5 of the 7 days didn't hurt either.

Beautiful Setting, Relaxing and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We visited these cottages for our family spring break vacation. Very relaxing. A lot to do with the family around the area. Love the setting right off the beach with these cottages. The owners, Lee & Mary, have done a very good remodel job to bring these cottages up to today's standards.

sar's cottage a little paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Sara's cottages are just as promised. My husband and I could not have asked for anything better. The owners are very gracious and Wayne the grounds keeper was very helpful. We have rented other places but this was by far the best. Restuarants and a drug are close by plus the lighthouse Bakery was the perfect spot for breakfast and only a 1 minute walk for your morning coffee. The cottage was spotless. We will be booking our next trip at sar's.

Thank you Paul Mary and Lee for your hospitality.

Best spot in Indian Rocks Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Sarah's Seaside. We had plenty of space in our cottage which was very well decorated. We made friends with all the other families in the cottage community. Lee's team worked hard to provide a relaxing and welcoming environment for our vacation. With a washer/dryer on property, beach towels and toys, we had all we needed. A condo complex cannot compete with this setting. This is the only place to stayin Indian Rocks Beach!!!
