About bruce & lisa westall

We are retired educators who have operated an Ohio bed & breakfast for over twenty years. We entered the vacation home rental business because our lodging experience had prepared us for another way to entertain guests.

bruce & lisa westall purchased this house in 2012

Why bruce & lisa westall chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

First, we like the fact that it has a private pool and is

within a couple blocks to the beach. Also the home is

in a quiet neighborhood away from the noise and bustle of the more commercial part of the town.

What makes this house unique

Privacy. Quiet. Your own pool. Pet friendly. Kid friendly.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION AND.....

  • 5 of 5

PERFECTLY SITUATED, QUIETE COMMUNITY WITH 350M TO A PERFECT BEACH. STORES AND RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE. STILL THE FEELING YOU GET WHEN ENTERING THE "PORCHHOUSE" IS THAT YOU ARE ON THE BEACH. EVERY DETAIL IN THIS HOUSE ISC PERFECTLY THOUGHT OUT AND MATCHED (YOU HAVE HISTORY AND ART COMBINED WITH THE ART OF BATHING SUITES IN THE LIVING ROOM). IT TOOK US SEVERAL DAYS TO DISCOVER ALL. IT IS LIKE A JAQUE TATI MOVIE - YOU NEED TO SEE IT FIVE TIMES TO DISCOVER ALL THE DETAILS. PERFECT HOUSE FOR FOUR ADULTS AND TWO CHILDREN AS WE WERE. THERE ARE ALL THE STUFF YOU NEED FOR THE BEACH - THE CART WAS JUST A BIG HIT. WE FIT TWO KIDS IN IT AND ALL THE STUFF WE NEEDED FOR THE BEACH. IT IS STOCKED WITH EVERYTHING YOU CAN POSSIBLY NEED - THE ONLY THING WE MISSED WAS EGG CUPS AND SMALL SPOONS - COULD BE VERY EUROPEAN TO ASK FOR THIS THOUGH. THE AC ICED ON US THE SECOND DAY. BRUCE WAS QUICK TO GET REPAIR PEOPLE TO COME AND FIX IT. THE KIDS (2 1/2 AND 5 1/2 Years old) REFERE TO THE PORCH HOUSE AS "HOME" AND DECIDED TO STAY AND NOT RETURN TO SWEDEN. IF WE RETURN TO FLORIDA WE WILL NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE!! IF YOU CONSIDER A VACATION ON THE GÚLF SIDE OF FLORIDA THIS IS IT. THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR 10 DAYS HOLIDAY ONE TO REMEMBER!

Can't get ANY better

  • 5 of 5

We checked in saturday afternoon. What a great house, pool area and LOCATION, LOCATION. LOCATION. Steps to the beach.Along with restaurants. After your weekly shopping there is no reason to leave. we cooked outdoors several nights and were in the pool all day.Golf courses are plentiful and close. the house was very clean and stocked with everything you would need. I called the to advise the pool was too warm 90 degree days. and he lowered temperature right away. This vacation was so easy. everthing was taken care of and really relaxed. Again I credit the owners eyes to details. Thank you so much

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all. Its clean and updated and comfortable. It's just a short walk to the beach. The pool and patio area are private and inviting. When we weren't at the beach, we enjoyed the pool. The owners were really great to work with and checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything. We would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a great vacation!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Florida as a family; including three young children ages 6, 3, and 1. The house was very clean and most everything needed for a week-long stay could be found inside. A couple of items that were lacking, which we didn't think to purchase on our first trip to the store, were trash bags and laundry detergent. But there are several stores within 5-10 minutes that have everything you might need. The backyard/pool area is wonderful; partial sun/shade can be found at most any time of day. It is also very private and quiet, with vegetation and fencing all around it. The kids enjoyed chasing around various creatures including crabs, snails, and lizards. The location compared to the beach was perfect. Just a couple short blocks to a public entrance to the beach. We walked to the beach most days, but you could also drive and park, as there was free public parking at the entrance as well. The beach area was not crowded, the sand was very soft and there was also a lot of shells to collect. During our stay, we visited Clearwater Beach, and it was so much more crowded and chaotic. We loved the slower pace and atmosphere of Indian Rocks Beach. Also, we met several locals and everyone in the community was very friendly and inviting. A couple of restaurants that we enjoyed were Slyce Pizza and Aqua Prime. It is evident that the owners take pride in this house, as it is well-kept, cutely decorated, and they reached out to us several times during our stay. We would recommend this house to others, and we hope to be back again soon.

Great first family trip to FL!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to Florida (we've got a 5, 4 and 2 year old). It was such a great place to stay. The home was extremely clean, felt so "Beachy" (in such a fantastic way) the pool was wonderful and the location was great.

The owners called us in advance to see if we needed anything/had questions (we didn't) - it was very thoughtful and showed the pride they have in their home.

We hope to be back again!

Indian Rocks Beach is a quiet old Florida beach town on a barrier island between Clearwater and St. Petersburg. No fast food or chain motels, just beautiful white sandy beaches and dazzling sunsets. Just over the bridge however, you'll find a grocery store, pharmacy, and movie theater.
