Beautiful location and great property manager!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the Flip-Flop Inn and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has everything you would need in a beach house. The walk down to the beach is very short and picturesque. There is a trolley stop just up on Gulf Boulevard that will take you Clearwater Beach or down to St. Pete. My kids especially loved the large gated patio where they could ride their scooters or play cars in the gravel. We frequented the little restaurant on the corner (The Kooky Coconut) a few times and loved the locals we met there. Mary Lou was a super attentive and available property manager and very sweet to talk to you. Great spot and we would definitely consider it for a return trip to Indian Rocks Beach!

Cute place in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much to Mary Lou! It was a great stay for my family of 3 and our dog. The house is well stocked and equipped and so close to the beach access! We loved taking a short walk to the restaurant down the lane for a bite or my son loved the ice cream. The host Mary Lou was so accommodating and just the sweetest, nicest person ever! Thank you so much again!

Very nice beach cottage, just steps from the beach and resteraunts.

  • 5 of 5

MartLou was a delight and so was her beach cottage. We had a great time walking to everything we needed. The cottage is well maintained and MaryLou made sure we had everything we needed. All of the local resteraunts and bars were great. We plan to come back soon! Robert from Marietta, GA

Grate place to relax and enjoy some friends!

  • 5 of 5

I'm a local resident (St.Pete) and needed a place for a little get together with some friends from out of town. This place fit the bill perfectly.

Working with Mary Lou was a pleasure. She met me at the property and showed me around.

The place was clean and well stocked with all you would need but food and a bathing suit. The beach is steps away.

5 stayed the night and had plenty of room to spread out and get comfortable. Their first night there they all took a pleasant walk to a local restaurant and had a great meal. The location is close to all the amenities you would need while still having a very local feel, not at all touristy.

The outside area work great for our gathering of 17, with a common area and a grill right there for our use.

Would highly recommend to all.

Relaxation very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our relaxing weekend with our two kids in the 2 BRM unit. We loved that the beach was right around the corner, walking distance! Our kids loved the corner cafe as well as the night strolls to have some ice cream. You need nothing except your clothes, bathing suits & whatever food you'd like to cook or eat. Cottage fully equipped with everything you need even a bar-b-que. They have floats & boogie boards for the kids to use. I over packed expecting less. Can't wait till our next long weekend get away, we will return.

We spent Feb and Mar in the 2 bedroom unit. This cottage has everything needed for a great get-a-way. The patio area is a great feature of this property, tropical plants make it very private & comfortable. This year with the cooler weather the patio was well used as it is sheltered from the wind. We also enjoyed the bar-b-que grill. The cottage is well equiped with all neccessities. It is centrally located. There are restaurants and live entertainment within walking distance and the beach is a short stroll down the trail.

Thank you Mike & Mary Lou for everything
