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.

About Patti Spence

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 Spence purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Patti Spence 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.

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 

Relaxing, pleasant experience.

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent a week at Something Fishy and found everything to be clean and organized. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The beach was easy to get to and we couldn’t have had better weather. Only complaint was no TV in the second bedroom as we expected. It did have a DVD player in the second bedroom, but disappointing. Because I very recently had a knee replacement, all the stairs were a bit of an issue for me. Overall we would recommend this condo to anyone of our friends.

Owner's Response: Carol and Sam— Glad you had a pleasant trip and all of that terrific sundhine during your visit. Our guests with small children really appreciate having so many movies available to their children, so we try to have something for everyone, especially since we have 2 other flat screens available — hence, the choice! Come see us again soon!

It was a perfect condo. Location was excellent and safe for kids to just run to the beach. Everyone was so friendly in the area. The couch and bed were so comfortable!!! Plenty of room to relax. Only complaint I have is I wish the kids could have swam in pool at night, but that's the only downfall. Kids didn't complain too much about that as we had fun busy days. Cant wait to come back;). Much needed vacation.

A Serene Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our late January getaway to Something Fishy was our fourth—and did not disappoint. In fact, we continue to find the changing moods of the gulf, which are visible from our bedroom window each morning, are wonderfully relaxing. Although Something Fishy is extremely well located to many Florida attractions, restaurants, and sights, it is the daily close connection with the sea which draws us landlubbers each year. Of course the fact that the temp is in the single digits back in Ohio makes the usually pleasant January weather in Florida an attraction in itself. Patti continues to keep the condo upgraded and full of all the comforts of home. We’re already looking forward to January 2019 for our next stay.

Ken, Pat and Kay

Owner's Response: You three are the poster children for living life large at "Something Fishy" Beach Condo! So wonderful to have the opportunity to see you three this year! It's a rare siting! Thanks for letting me know about the few quirks -- all fixed! Glad to already have you on the calendar again for next year . . . it's a smart move considering the amount of folks that wait and then we cannot accommodate them!

Amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property. Great location steps from the beach. The layout of the property is convenient with bedrooms upstairs and living room downstairs. The owner, Patti, is very kind and engaged. She made sure we had everything we needed including some great running routes.

Indian Rocks Beach is a semi-residential community with more of a 'mom and pop' feel to the gulf front vacation rentals. Our community boasts miles of sandy white beaches to explore, stroll and enjoy. Within walking distance of our beach are restaurants, a skateboard park, a local art/community center, the intracoastal waterway as well as boating and fishing. A free trolley runs up and down Gulf Blvd. right in front of our complex and takes you both north and south for over 25 miles. 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
