Why Karen Aller chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We purchased this property with an eye towards our retirement. We love the soft white sand beaches and the large number of golf courses nearby. The ability to watch the sunrise over the intercostal and the sunset over the Gulf.

What makes this bungalow unique

In an area full of condos we loved the idea of a private home. We love the screened in porch and the fish tiles in the jacuzzi tub.

Perfect Cottage at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our vacation stay at Beach Bungalow and would definitely rent it again!! The cottage was completely stocked with everything we needed. The location was great with the beautiful beach right across the street. The beach chairs and bikes were really appreciated and were used everyday. We would recommend staying here to all of our family and friends.

Perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

I could not be happier with our week at The Banana Bungalow! The owner was quick to respond with any questions we had and we were literally steps away from the beautiful Gulf shore! The house is completely stocked if you want to cook dinner and there are restaurants all around if you don't. We spent most of our time on the gorgeous white sandy beach and even took two day trips to Disney!! My husband could not join us at the last minute due to work so having the Police Department a stone's throw away gave me tremendous peace of mind at night (it was only me, my 17 year old daughter and 18 year old niece) I am already saving for my return trip next year...we did not want to leave this morning!!! Thank you, Karen, for a week none of us will ever forget!!!!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a good time. Although we never want to leave the white sand beach - we also have done the day trip to Disney. It is nice to have the option. Our next day trip with our kids will be to Busch Gardens. We look forward to your return trip!

Great Beach Location

  • 3 of 5

Great beach location. Beautiful cottage. Very clean and nicely decorated. We only had 2 things we didn't like. First was the walls were very thin in the cottage. If someone was walking down the street you could hear them as if they were inside the cottage with you. Which drove the 2 little doggies we took with us on vacation nuts. You are across the street from where they keep the firetruck for Indian Shores. So you hear that going in and out all the time through the thin walls. Second thing was the wifi wasnt working on the day we arrived which was Saturday. Called the owner and was told someone would be out to look at it on Monday. Nobody came and never heard from the owner the rest of the week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We love the location also - so near to the beach and inter-coastal. We are happy to accommodate pet lovers and glad you were able to enjoy your dogs with you on vacation. Our home includes a Florida 3 season room, with vinyl windows required by hurricane code. As you noticed this room is not sound proof. We are located next to the police and municipal building. This provides us exceptional security as well as the tennis courts, playground and bbq facilities. I am sorry the wi-fi issue was not resolved during your stay. The issue was resolved by rebooting the modem/router.

Banana Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and clean place to stay. Decorated beautifully. The only problem we had was the wifi wasnt working. We contacted the owners and she was supposed to send someone out on Monday to take care of it. Nobody ever came and we didnt hear back from the owner. We had to add extra data to our service plan to be able to keep up with our work duties while on vacation.

Cosy beach bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Adorable beach condo in beautiful Indian Shores Beach. Steps away from access to pristine Gulf of Mexico; trolley and park with playground on intercostal. Condo nicely decorated and comfortably furnished. We stayed there for 2 weeks and did not want to leave. 2nd bedroom perfect for kids of all ages. Split plan ensures a bit of quiet for adults wanting a good night sleep. Bicycles a hit with teens wanting adventure on their own.

Great beach cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this adorable cottage. It was great to cross the road to see the sunset on the beach. It was very clean, nice fluffy towels, comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen. It was convenient to drive to the grocery store and to most of the sightseeing places. We loved walking down the beach to the Bird Sanctuary and visiting with the birds. I would recommend the property to anyone who enjoys a quiet place to stay.

Indian Shores Beach

Indian Shores is a small, quiet beach community located along the Gulf Coast of the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Beaches. Home to over two and one-half miles of pristine beaches, the City of Indian Shores provides nine beach accesses, eight are pedestrian, the large one for parking is Tiki Gardens with facilities and close to the Park Boulevard public boat ramp. Recently, the City of Indian Shores replaced its road infrastructure, buried its utility lines, and now offers both pedestrian and bicycle right-of-ways.

Our beach bungalow is located next to the municipal center with playground, lighted tennis court, restrooms, covered pavilion and fishing pier. Walking distance to Salt Rock Grill for when you don't want to cook dinner and Indian Shores Coffee for your morning muffin and coffee.
