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 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.

Hands down the nicest, most relaxing condo I have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

The area: Superb location. Gated, quiet, literally steps from the quiet, unspoiled, clean beach. Easily walk-able for miles each way! Only a few blocks to several great choices for meals, and a CVS. Many more restaurants & grocery stores only a few miles away.

The Indian Rocks Beach Welcome Center is 2 blocks away. They cheerfully printed our return flight Boarding Passes for us. Got info on several nearby places: John's Pass (20 min away), Fort De Soto State Park (45 min), Florida Botanical Gardens & Heritage Village (10 min), Sunset Celebration at Pier 60, Clearwater Beach (20 min), IRB Nature Preserve & Dog Park = boardwalk over the mangroves to the Bay! (1/3 mile). Much more is close by ….

The condo: Identical to photos. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, very comfy & stocked with everything you could possibly need (inside & out) for a comfortable, worry free vacation. Ground level: 2 covered parking spaces, & a storage room with several beach chairs, kids water & sand toys, coolers, etc. Second floor: Nice sized living, dining, kitchen & full sized bath. Kitchen was very well stocked (appliances, tableware, random staples). Many books, DVDs & games. Balcony with table & 2 chairs for a great view! Third Floor: 2 large bedrooms (both comfy kings!), an alcove with a newer sleeper sofa, a master dressing room/closet that contained extra linens, beach towels/blanket, some hotel sized toiletries. Also, the upstairs 2nd full sized bath had 2 doors, so it was privately accessible from all 3 sleeping areas. (No traveling thru another bedroom. No trips up & down the steps during the night!)

The owner: this woman knows how to treat her guests! Many, many small personal touches showed that Patti cares about providing her guests with a great experience, almost like a luxury hotel. Dusk to dawn nightlights, beds made up on arrival, ample linens, laundry detergent, hand soaps, hair dryer, paper goods, more than enough clothes hangers, restaurant menus, area maps, two complimentary bottles of water …. just to name a few. Also, little notes are posted for you with instructions for the thermostat, washer & dryer, trash dumpster area, pool gate, etc … No need to question anything! (Sounds trivial, but proved to be invaluable!) I felt she was readily accessible at any time. Would travel back to this area & this condo in a minute!!! (Thank You, Patti!)

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful place! Not only is the beach literally right outside your door, there is also a great pool! The actual townhouse is great, living space on one floor with bedroom on the top floor so you can put kids to bed then adults can stay up and sit on the balcony and enjoy the ocean view. There are beach chairs, kids toys, rafts, beach towels, umbrellas and everything you could imagine you would need for a trip to the beach. The owner is so great, she even checked in with us from her own overseas vacation. She also has a great housekeeper that was super accomodating and helpful. The location is also wonderful, more of a local and family-oriented crowd without all of the hotel and high-rise condo influence that you get in other areas. There are 2 covered parking spaces directly under the unit, and guest parking within the gated parking lot. We also found that there is a city park about half a mile away that has abundant public parking if the guest parking is full. We booked this place very last minute, and the owner was so great about working with us on the schedule. It's also nice that you don't have to stay for a minimum number of nights. I will DEFINITELY be back!!

Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

This beach condo is excellent in location and in the place itself. Our stay was awesome, a great time for my kids first time at the beach and being away from the cold in MN. It is steps from the beach and the pool is very close too. The condo itself is clean and has everything you need. Tons of pillows, blankets, towels, even for the beach, and basically every beach item you would need. It is also secure and in a quieter area. I highly recommend this place and will definitely rent here again when we return to FL. Patti was also great to work with, sent me messages during our visit to make sure everything was going well!

Great location, comfortable, clean and steps from the ocean.

We had a lovely, relaxing time at Something Fishy. The owner has provided everything a guest could possibly need. We were just steps away from the beach, great restaurants and ice cream. We plan to return next year.

Thanks Patti

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.
