Tommy's on the Beach is a 3 unit cottage directly on the Gulf of
Mexico. Rent a one or two bedroom unit or take the whole place and
have 5 bedrooms. Enough for 1-18. All are newly
and decorated in an "Old Florida"
style with high ceilings, tropical colors, and accented with
memorabilia. We supply all your needs from towels to toasters and
bed sheets to beach toys. Each unit is large and spacious and has a
direct view of the Gulf of Mexico.
All units have private decks and picnic areas, all overlooking the
beach. Enjoy swimming and shelling, shuffleboard or simply relaxing in our swaying hammock as the sun sets into the sparkling Gulf waters.
We are located in one of the last small beach towns on the west coast of Florida but right in the middle of all the excitement and activities that the Tampa Bay area has to offer.
Our white sand beach and sparkling Gulf water is perfect for swimming, shelling , stand up paddle boarding , kayaking and walking. Our restaurants are wonderful and reasonable. Close by we offer shopping, art museums, botanical gardens, nature preserves, golf, tennis , bike riding and sporting and musical events. There is always a charming art festival or music festival close by.
August is a great time to visit as you may be lucky enough to witness the hatching of the baby loggerhead turtles whose mother returns year after year to the home of her birth to lay her eggs near our beach house.
We offer outdoor gas grills to cook that perfect hamburger or grill your fresh caught fish. We have almost everything you need within walking distance and are also on the Beach Trolley route for longer excursions.
We have a fire pit where roasting marshmallows or enjoying refreshments under a full moon is a very special experience. The summer weeks and holiday weeks are wonderful, too and great for family reunions. Our sunsets are amazing!
Our weather is wonderful year round and with so much to do, many of our guests return year after year.
Once you stay with us, we consider you "family" and love having you return. Perhaps you remember a special place you went to with your family as a child. We have recreated that special place and now , we are watching the children of our guests grow up, too.
We will look for you at the Beach!
High school sweet hearts , Tom and I have been lucky enough to grow up in this beautiful area. We lived in Indian Rocks Beach when we were first married. We live in Dunedin now but purchased this amazing "Old Florida" beach house in 2003 we feel like young newly weds again. We have two grown sons that live out of town and their first stop when they visit is always Indian Rocks Beach. There really is no place else quite like it!
We made an offer on this property the first time we stood on the south unit deck and looked out to the Gulf of Mexico. That view still takes my breath away. We love sharing it with our guests and have found that the 3 units are perfect in so many ways. The different seasons change the needs of our guests. The winter months we rent single units to our wonderful snow bird guests while spring , summer and holiday weeks are perfect for renting all 3 units for family and friend reunions. Fall is a special time on our beach and we are able to offer single or multiple units for shorter stays and long weekends during that quieter time .
Indian Rocks Beach is one of the last small beach towns on the busy west coast of Florida. It offers a beautiful white sand beach and the wonderful Gulf of Mexico. It is quiet and friendly and yet right in the middle of all the interesting activities the Tampa Bay area has to offer. You really can get everywhere you want to go from where we are.
Cook outs are always fun and with our beach front back yard, really special. Grill that fresh caught fish or the perfect hamburger while you enjoy the view of the beach and Gulf. You can enjoy the shady hammock or patio chairs- a break from the sun and sand.
The evenings are really special. It is when the beach quiets down and the stars come out. You can sit on your private deck or patio, enjoy our fire pit or walk on the quiet beach.
We offer a beautiful beach and sparkling Gulf water perfect for swimming, shelling and walking. The sunsets are amazing! We have abundant friendly wildlife and you will notice our neighborhood dolphins cruising in front of our house almost every morning. You may even see a gentle manatee as it makes it way along the coast.
The shore birds are wonderful and always busy with different species coming and going depending on the season.
You can walk to wonderful restaurants and the popular French bakery or hop on the trolley for a ride up or down the beaches. Our central location makes it easy to get anywhere you want to go.
My family rented all three apartments of Tommy's on the Beach for a Christmas Family Reunion. The three apartments allowed us to have our "own"space but yet we were all together. What a dream vacation it was! The places were very clean, had everything you needed and the backyard and the access to the beach was absolutely perfect! We will definitely return to Tommy's on The Beach and highly recommend it to everyone! A dream place located in the heart of Indian Rocks Beach!
It was the perfect spot to spend holidays near Tampa. Location was great (everything can be reached by car within du course), beach was very nice, nice restaurants around, very relaxed atmosphere. On the last day of our stay, we met the owners of this place: Tommy and his wife. They are really nice people and they really care about making your stay a perfect holiday. Thank you very much for having us in your house. If we went back to Tampa Bay, we would love to stay at Tommy's again! Best regards, Hans and Conny
We had a great time renting this property! I have rented a lot of vacation homes and this one by far was stocked with everything imaginable: every kitchen utensil you could possible use, lighters, sunscreen, tools, towels galore, you will not have to run out for anything. The location is awesome. There is a large yard with tables, a fire pit and plenty of room for games and activities. We had a party of 5 and invited family over totaling 11 and had a great time. I highly recommend this property that is walkable to everything.
