the most beautiful and relaxing place of Florida

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find this wonderful cottage at Indian Rocks Beach.

It is just perfect for two people, a little paradise.

The Cottage got everything what you need, and restaurants are very close.

We enjoyed especially that you can see the ocean and the dunes from your bedroom and from the living room.

And at night you can hear the sound of the ocean.

The beach is nice and just in front of the Cottage.

It is a rather relaxing place.

Hopefully we will be able to be back next year.

thank you so much dear Rebecca and James

Very good, but needs better lighting. (Another table lamp in bedroom)

Very good, but a larger flat screen tv on wall would be nice

Quite Time

  • 3 of 5

Very quite and comfortable time.

Our AC did stop working but it was taken care or the next day....no complaints at all.

There was an unfortunate theft on the beach from some undesirables which we understand never happens.

The only thing that we wish didn't happen was having 2 "pet ducks" living in the very nice heated pool. I don't think duck's should be living at the pool....they belong at their on homes.....but other than that everything was great.

perfect cozy beach destination for 2

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for the best location in Indian Rocks Beach for a beach vacay, this is it. Nestled right in the dunes and walking distance to great restaurants. No need to get in the car. Pool right beside the unit is convenient, although eats into the privacy factor if residents from the other cottages are using it. Will certainly use this as the new high benchmark for my IRB stays.

Perfect setting!

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better setting for a few days of total relaxation! We planned to do nothing and that is what we did! Walked several yards to the beach or a few steps to the pool! The cottage was spotless and cute. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was that the couches were old, dirty and even ripped. I understand with a lot of people staying there and dragging in sand from the beach that this is bound to happen. But it was pretty unappealing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We went down two weeks ago and realized the same thing about the couches. We now have two new couches as well as a new chair and dinning table. Thanks again!

A wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

After being home one week my husband and I were just reflecting back on our vacation at your adorable Blue Heron Cottage #2. We enjoyed our relaxing stay, and hope to be back. Your decorations are very nice. Everyday we noticed something we didn't see the day before. Your boys are adorable thank you for sharing a piece of your life. We also have three sons (adults now) and know how much work they are. We spent a lot of time on the beach. The restaurants were so close we were able to walk to most of them. My only compliant is that one week wasn't enough. Looking forward to our next stay at Blue Heron Cottages, Indian Rocks Beach. Paula and Richard, Plymouth, MA
