About the property

Cozy one bedroom, one bath beach cottage apartment across from the beach

This is NOT A CONDO but a single apartment fully furnished, towels and loaded with beach equipment. All you need is your swim clothing. It is attached to my home so there is a driveway with off street parking. A private backyard patio with table, chairs and barbecue grill. The beach is across the street and it is close to downtown IRB for festival. In 3 to 5 blocks walking distance to casual and fine dining, a nature park, bicycle rentals, convenience store and more. The "Jolly Trolley" stops across the street to give you carefree and easy access to Clearwater and St. Pete Beach for gulf activities, shopping and restaurants so you don't have to drive or worry about parking at these congested beaches.

About Ruth Coopee

Owner AND your cleaning lady so I can guarantee the condition and cleanliness of the cottage.

Ruth Coopee purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Ruth Coopee chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The 12th street beach entrance is across the street. Walk 1 block north to convenience store, two blocks to have ice cream, rent a bicycle or grab a beer at a local hangout. The apartment is attached to my home so if you need anything just knock on my door!

What makes this apartment unique

Your side of the house has a private patio with barbeque and shaded sitting area. A great place to watch the stars at the end of the day or have morning coffee while overlooking the fruit trees in the back yard or take a walk to some of the best breakfast spots in town. The "Jolly Trolley" stops for North and South are right out your door for exploring from Clearwater to St. Pete Beach.

A very relaxing and beautiful week!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at "Ruth's place" It was very relaxing. With her supplies of chairs and umbrellas we spent much time at the beach which is only a walk across the street. She even took us sailing! It was also nice to know we were always a phone call away for help or suggestions. She supplied us with a binder of local activities and information. :-)

My husband and I stayed at this place for a few days. Very nice and cozy apartment. You can find everything you need for your vacation there. Very clean and organize. The location is perfect. The beach is just a cross the street. We really enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thanks Mrs Ruthie.

Great little cottage right across from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights at Ruth's place. The cottage was fantastic, like a home away from home, with everything you could possibly need inside - and even out - beach equipment, clothesline and gas grill. It was very quiet and peaceful. It's located right across from the beach and trolley stops going in both directions - to St. Pete's and Clearwater. We only had a car for one day, and didn't need one! The only thing is it is not near any supermarkets, which is where the car could come into play. We ended up taking the public bus to one, once we found it (take bus 59 to Largo Mall or Indian Rocks Shopping Center). There is a little mini market a few blocks down but they only have junk food and tons of wine! (Which is fine if that's what you eat ; ) Ruthie is available for any questions you may have and we really enjoyed meeting her and hope to visit again some day! Thanks, Ruthie!!

Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the apartment and it was very adequate and had everything that you could possibly need at your fingertips. We also appreciate the fact that was about a minute to walk across the street to the beach the amazing Beach at the Gulf of Mexico.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our stay. This location is perfect! Not busy like Clearwater or St. Pete, but still plenty of options for food & fun. And it's just a trolley ride away from both of those destinations! We were there for 8 days with no car, and we didn't miss it a bit. Thank you Ruth!
