                    This is most likely our 5th year in renting at "Tommy's on the Beach" we truly love this place and plan to continue renting for the month each year. Wow what a truly enjoyable vacation, eating out and just looking over at the Gulf. We have two little dogs who just love to look out on the top deck. Our son and his family come down for a week each march and the children totally enjoy their time at our rental condo. We just love to see the dolphins moving along wht gulf. Beautiful, relaxing, and wonderful neighbors. See you next year Tommy's on the Beach.

                    This was the perfect setting for a family gathering. An easy drive from Tampa Airport. We rented the enitre condo (all three units) and it was just right for the 20 of us. They thought of everything. We didn't have to bring a thing. They had plenty of bed linens, towels, beach chairs, and games, just to name a few. The units were well maintained and clean. Loved the grassy yard area with enough seating for everyone, two grass grills, a hammack, and shuffle board. Just off the grassy area was the beach, which was also quite private. Entertainment was just a short hop away. We ate at the french bakery and Thai restaurant which were both at our back doors. Close enough to Clearwater beach and Treasure Island for night life and shopping. We would definetly go there again.

                    In my search for a "pet-friendly" gulf-front beach accommodation, I found "Tommy's on the Beach" on the web and decided to give it a try ... so my husband and I - both septuagenarians - spent Thanksgiving 2009 in the ground floor unit ... along with our darling little sweetheart dog Lucky (also a septuagenarian) ... The unit was darling .... perfect for us - it was exceptionally clean - great floor plan - very very comfortable - nice big kitchen (totally equipped) and living room looking out over those white sands of Florida - and The Gulf of Mexico. The bathroom was quite large and again exceptionally clean and well-stocked with more than an adequate supply of towels, etc. Our bedroom was also quite large enough to house the two huge double-beds - side-tables - two separate chests of drawers - chair - television - closet - and overhead ceiling fan. There was also a large well-stocked laundry room available for our use. Home away from home .... what more could one want ... I must disagree with the January 7, 2009 review wherein Lisa from Lancaster, NY stated she disliked the "older furniture and decorations" .... we accepted without complaint the "older furniture" and the "decorations" were what made Tommy's our little bit of nostalgia ... 'nuff said !! We met Jan, the owner, and found her to be a most gracious and charming hostess who couldn't do enough for us ...

                    I just returned from a week of heaven at "Tommy's on the Beach." This is the perfect place to stay if you are going with many family members. The house has three separate units and we rented all three, it was so nice to be together as a family but also nice to have a little time alone as well. The three apartments are just beautiful and very well maintained, anything that you might need is there. The view from each apartment is just breathtaking. We have never been on a vacation before that the children were this content, they did not want to leave. The owners are kind and gracious hosts and I would highly recommend this wonderful place!!!

                    This is how Florida is suppose to be...laid back and relaxed. This place is close to everything...walk to restaurants...2 dog parks nearby. ..the smell of bread baking each morning at a nearby french bakery. We loved it! The beach is wonderful and we really did see dolphins from our deck!

                    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! -- Lancaster, NY

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Tom is a 3rd generation Floridian and with his wife, Jan, have grown up in and in the area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Owning this wonderful beachfront property is a dream come true for us and we are the first people in our families to achieve this. We grew up coming to Indian Rocks Beach during the 1960's so this property is very special to us and we have captured the wonderful retro feel with modern amenities. We love sharing it with our guests. We are close to everything and right in the middle of the fun Tampa Bay area but Indian Rocks Beach has a wonderful small town feel.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We are located in one of the most charming 'Old Florida' beach towns and on a beautiful white sand beach. We also are lucky enough to have a wonderful Gulf front garden with shade so you can enjoy sunning on the sandy beach or relax in our cool, shady garden. The swimming is wonderful and you may even see dolpins, sea turtles and manatees. Our romantic sunsets are spectacular and we have a fire pit to roast marshmellows under the stars.
