                  Car: Recommended

                  90 min. from Disney 30 min. from Tpa International***

                  Indian Rocks Beach is a Barrier Island off of the mainland of Clearwater and Largo due West of Tampa.

                  It is a very Family Friendly Community. You can walk Safely to several highly rated restaurants as well as several local Haunts and Watering Holes. Be sure to discuss with me what you are looking for in food and I will direct you to the best spots for eating or shopping.

                  I say Safely as we have recently had walking lanes and a Bike lane added to Gulf Blvd in our area. A Big plus for Families with children.

                  Indian Rocks Beach has very little Public Parking. Also a Big Plus as there is no where for outsiders to park so our Beach is far more Private than the Commercial areas like Clearwater and St. Pete.

                  Indian Rocks Beach has been sited as one of the safest Beaches in the world. Due to the layout of our coast line in this area riptides are all but unheard of. Our beach floor is level with a white sand bottom.

                  We are 8 miles from the Famous John's Pass which houses Hubbard Marina, the largest Marina on the Gulf Coast of Florida, where you will find every kind of water sport you can think of as well as some great shopping and restaurants.

                  Seven miles North you will find the Clearwater Aquarium. This is where the wonderful movie 'Winter' was filmed. A must for the children.

                  Before you make the trip google Vinoy Park, St. Pete to see what will be going on there while you are in the area. Great Outdoor Concerts, Blues Fest, Bar B Que Cook Offs and all around Family Fun.

                  Lowery Park is about 45 minutes away. A must for Zoo Lovers! Their Zoo is on the top 10 list in the Nation!

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About: The Gulf Coast of Florida has always been near and dear to my heart. It is like a hide a way, not so commercial as the East Coast.Indian Rocks Beach is a perfect example of the old Florida that I remember as a kid. A retreat from the real world with it's Wide, White, Powdery Beaches,and Private, quiet atmosphere. The gentle lull of the surf smoothes the stress and renourishes the soul. It is truly a Paradise. I love swimming, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, biking, good food, good music, and spending time with family. I love kids and pets. I love the sound of the surf and the incredible sunsets. I love life on this beautiful Gulf Coast.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  I would say that I love the way my management staff spoils everyone. They believe in true Southern Hospitality. Everything is immaculate. The tropical gardens are beautiful and the perfect spot to relax and read a book. I can walk to several wonderful restaurants. I can fish right in front of my Gulf front Cottage. I can walk for miles down the long stretch of beach, or ride my bike for miles down the new bike path.
