Property description

'The place is lovely, obviously the nicest cottage on the beach, thanks Tim & Cathleen', Jane & Aldo.

Blue Heron Cottages have been described as adorable, charming and nostalgic.

Originally built in the 1940's we restored our cottage #6 to create an oasis for your vacation, nestled on the beach in the classic beach town of Indian Rocks. Just recently we have replaced the kitchen and added granite counters, a full sized refrigerator and a new range, painted the interior, added new furnishings and of course we renew all our linens regularly. We also have added a HD 32' TV and of course we have wifi for your pleasure

Guests return year after year to enjoy the serenity, the sun and the sand and most love to be away from the surrounding more commercialized beach vacation destinations.

Our cottage has 2 bedrooms consisting of a queen bed and 2 single beds, sleeping up to 4 people and we maintain it lovingly.

The kitchen has all one needs to prepare a feast however; we have some of the finest award winning restaurants on the Gulf Coast, including Guppy's, Salt Rock Grill, Keegan's, Crabby Bill's, The Pub and Villa Gallace. From family dining to seafood dining to casual sand in your shoes dining, we have it all within walking distance.

The grounds of the Cottage are impeccable and just a few paces along the shell path takes you to the heated pool with endless views of the Gulf of Mexico. Listen to the waves, the call of the gulls and marvel at the site of Dolphins playing and Pelicans diving for fish.

Indian Rocks Beach is just south of Clearwater Beach for those who want more activities and we are only 40 mins to Tampa Airport and short hops to many golf courses. Theme parks are all within 45 mins to 1 1/2 hours drive.

Founded in the early 1800's Indian Rocks Beach and developed mainly since the 1940's, Indian Rocks Beach is a thriving community that has maintained most of its original character, and supports a lively mixture of recreational activities. There are many annual events such as the popular Arts and Crafts Festival every November and April. and the Holiday Boat Parade where lighted and festively decorated boats will cruise down the Intracoastal Waterway.

Indian Rocks Beach has many parks and Kolb park is one of three Pinellas County parks to open a “skate park” which is located across the street from City Hall. Besides the skate park, there are other amenities such as tennis courts, a playground, and baseball field for others to enjoy. We also have a Nature Preserve Park with a winding boardwalk that will take you on a tour of some of the most beautiful natural settings along the Intracoastal Waterway.
