Overview

Indian Rocks Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

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 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 Florida Central Gulf Coast

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.

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We didn't have any real "plans" for our vacation other than to make it as simple and stress free as possible - a break from everyday life - and that is exactly what we got. The condo couldn't have been in a better location in our opinion - close enough to necessities and restaurants but private enough to be quiet and calm. The condo itself has everything you need and is very comfortable. We enjoyed how quiet the beach was during this time of year. We are already trying to figure out how to re-book for next year but include 3 teenage boys that have 3 different school schedules - it was an experience we want to share and will pass on to any friends that ask. Thank you Patti for making everything so accommodating and perfect for a vacation.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed visiting the west coast for the first time; and Patti's condo was cozy and decorated nicely. We had plenty of room, were very close to the beach and enjoyed viewing the beach at night from the condo. We were close to many stores and there were wonderful seafood restaurants nearby. John's Pass was not too far where we went for a day of shopping, walking along the board walk, and eating along the way. My husband did a little fishing from the beach right in front of the condo so it was close for him. We also enjoyed the swimming pool there everyday we were there. One thing I really liked about staying here was the beach wasn't too crowded. Nothing like Daytona Beach or New Smyrna Beach which is what I am use too, and those beaches fill up with a lot of people quickly. This is a place I would visit again in the future!

Something Fishy is Something Special

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay at Something Fishy. The unit is decorated beautifully and has all the comforts of home! The beds were made, there were plenty of bath towels, a hair dryer, paper towels, toilet paper, and a variety of kitchen pots, pans and utensils. There were also beach towels and a storage unit with beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and beach toys for the kids. And we were literally just steps from a very private and beautiful beach. Patti was very nice and provided helpful tips on where to go and things to do. She also provided her contact information if we had any questions or concerns and was quick to respond to any of our inquires. We would definitely love to stay at Something Fishy again if we are able to return to Indian Rocks in the future!

One of the best rentals we have ever experienced

  • 5 of 5

2 adults, 2 kids ages 5 and 1 stayed for 4 nights. Patti is great to deal with, very good at communicating with us. The property is just fantastic. We did not want to leave. Big, clean home with loads of amenities. Beautiful beach and great neighborhood. Loved eating at Crabby Bill's and the Crazy Coconut.
