About the property

Townhouse Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'Something Fishy' beach townhouse is truly the tropical gulf front paradise, decorated in a fun and funky Florida flair that will continuously remind you that you are on vacation in the tropics!

Two spacious upstairs bedrooms, both with king size beds and quality bed linens, provide the vacationer with privacy and intimacy as they are strategically located above the main living area. A loft space with a comfortable pull out sofa bed offers additional sleeping arrangements that is perfect for kids or an extended family member. A large walk in closet, washer/dryer and flat screen tv's in the bedrooms give this unit extra convenience.

The master bath is a vivid array of wild colors and a hand painted shower curtain of two buxom bathing beauties, thick, coordinating towels and many extra appointments that will help keep you content during your stay.

The kitchen, complete with a wide array of appliances and utensils, is not only vibrant and well lit, but the view of the gulf can be seen for your enhanced visual pleasure in the adjoining dining area. The large living room offers a wide variety of seating and lounging and a large flat screen television with both VCR and DVD capabilities. A fully stocked library of movies for all ages as well as games and coloring books provides hours of entertainment.

The downstairs bathroom is a nautical delight, complete with a shower and decorative touches that will delight your senses.

The balcony overlooking the gulf is large enough to host cocktail hour as the sun sets over the gulf shores.

Our storage space at ground level provides convenience to the beach and is stocked with beach umbrellas, beach chairs and water/sand toys. A small grill offers an option to cooking inside. Outdoor, patio furniture in the carport is on hand for those that want to catch a cool breeze in the covered carport that houses two vehicles for this unit.

A beach shower, patio picnic table and a private path through the sea grass to the beach gives this condo complex a welcoming touch. The newly refinished pool area is a great alternative for a cool swim.

About Patti

Welcome to 'Something Fishy' beach condo, my unique creation that I painted, designed, and decorated with tropical style pieces created by a variety of local artists.

As an athlete and mother, I can assure you that Indian Rocks Beach is a wonderful playground for those that like to be outdoors enjoying the sunshine with their friends or family! Whether you like to run, bike, swim or just grab a beach chair and a great book, you'll love what the area has to offer.

I am an avid runner, cyclist and fitness enthusiast who enjoys the wonderful year 'round sunshine and opportunity to spend a great deal of time outdoors. I love to waterski, wakeboard and escape every so often to head out West for a bit of snowboarding with my 2 sons! I am a competitive marathon runner and often make a point to discover a new place via my daily training runs.

I would enjoy and opportunity to share our beach haven with you and all of the wonders of beach side solitude . . . 'Something Fishy' is truly a great escape!

Patti purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Patti chose Indian Rocks Beach

Indian Rocks Beach offers all of the amenities of some of the more populated beaches, without all of the hassles of traffic, parking and noise pollution. The calm, residential quality of the area and the serenity of the white sandy beaches are perfect for a relaxing beach getaway for a group outing or a family vacation. Our 24 unit complex is very family oriented and friendly. The condo that I purchased has its own covered parking spaces right under the unit for easy access. Since the bedrooms are above the living area, privacy is maintained for those that choose to sleep in. The epic sunsets on the quiet beach are breathtaking.

Most importantly, I take great care of my valued guests, as they are what inspire me to make 'Something Fishy' such a great vacation destination. I live only 4 miles from the unit, so I am available to my visitors and have been known to drop by on one of my training runs or training rides to make certain that my guests are thoroughly enjoying all that we offer.

What makes this townhome unique

Covered private parking is such a treat, especially when it is directly in front of our unit! This convenience offers ease when unloading suitcases and groceries to its private entrance. There are countless restaurants within walking distance as well as some terrific live music, and there's even a trolley that services over 20 miles of our gulffront roadway to transport you safely to all of the hotspots along multiple neighboring beaches.

Enjoy our newly resurfaced outdoor, heated swimming pool that is only a few dozen steps from the beach. Lounge in a beach chair on the deck and soak up some rays in our quiet complex.

Host a family and friends barbeque alone or with the surrounding friendly neighbors on the deck bordering the beach while you watch a breathtaking sunset.

Clearwater Beach is just 4 miles north and hosts countless festivals, events and is home to a wonderful rehab aquarium that was featured in Disney's "Dolphin Tale." Boat charters, sunset sails, pirate ship cruise as well as entertainment on the beach and even night time family outdoor free movies are all available along the waterfront. Don't forget to check out the indoor surfing at "Surf Style" in the bottom of the Aqualea.

John's Pass is just 6 miles south and offers a double decker boardwalk full of interesting shops, restaurants, and fishing charters.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a great week here in Something Fishy. We did exactly what we had planned -- "Rest and Relax." We rode our Harley several times, which was great. Thanks for sharing your condo with us. I love the extra touches you added. I love the "beachy" feel of the condo. My husband was so grateful to be able to park his truck & Harley under cover, as he worries about both. Celebrated my birthday here on Tues, and must say one of the best ones yet. Loved seeing the ocean from the balcony, so peaceful. But now we must head to the mountains of TN into lots of snow from what friends say.



Take care and God bless you & your family. Hope to return next year.

AMAZING!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect vacation! Patti’s condo was just amazing!! The pictures online are exactly what you get. The condo was so clean and offered all the comforts of home along with all the amenities to enjoy a beach vacation.

The beach was steps from the condo’s front door and not overrun with people. You could hear the soothing waves crashing on the shore in the evening. The peaceful, secure environment offered everything we were looking for and more.

The location of the condo was optimal. We has so much fun exploring the different restaurants, unique shops as well as visiting different parts of Florida.

Patti’s perfection for detail made our vacation so memorable!

Patti ~ we will be back!!!!

Thanks 

We had to be evacuated after two beautiful beach days because of Erma😕�. But we will be back God willing. Something Fishy is the perfect vacation spot. Everything you need is there. So clean and comfortable. The owner, Patti, is super nice. You won't be disappointed staying at Something Fishy.

Deep sea fishing, stand up paddling, sunset cruises, dinner cruises, water skiing, sailing, etc. are all available at the local rentals. Golf courses surround the area and are plentiful. Busch Gardens, Dali Museum, Tropical Field are all local attractions and Disney World is merely 90 minutes away.

The largest pedestrian bike trail in the U.S. just 1.5 miles due East of the beach condo.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, shelling, spa, racquetball, basketball, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard
