Private Homes cottage description

This cottage is two short blocks from the beach on a beautiful barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. There are two attached cottages on this property. They are mirror images. Both cottages have been completely renovated and have open beam ceilings, terrazzo floors, new central heat and air and new kitchen and bathroom. There is plenty of outdoor space to sit and relax with a glass of wine or just enjoy the beautiful weather. The cottages are within walking distance to several restaurants, bakery, ice cream parlor and pub. They are near the trolley stop which allows one to explore many miles along the gulf beaches. Our tropical landscaping, patios, and coconut palms all contribute to creating a very relaxing 'Old Florida' feeling.


Bring your Boat, this property is located just two short blocks from the beach, on a large corner lot with plenty of parking for your boat. There is a newly built boat ramp nearby with parking for your car. Indian Rocks Beach is a beautiful spot of pristine white sandy beaches and sparkling water perfect for swimming. It is located on the 12 mile string of tropical barrier islands between Clearwater and St. Petersburg Florida.

We are conveniently located 45 minutes from Bush Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo and Ybor City and 1.5 hours away from Disney World and Universal Studios.

Indian Rocks Beach has been written up by a major newspaper for being one of the few remaining quaint beach towns, essentially unspoiled by commercialism. You can sit down with the locals and enjoy a plate of seafood at one our excellent restaurants or have an ice cream cone at the local parlor. For breakfast enjoy a cup of coffee and a treat at the local bakery. All within walking distance.
Not much has changed from the easy living that brought people here in the 1920's.

For the more adventurous there is parasailing, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, tennis, racquetball, golf, dolphin encounters and sailing.

Yes, we are located on an island with miles and miles of continuous beaches.

It's your vacation. Do as much or as little as you please

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Owner Idalmis and Ken. We both grew up in Tampa and still live nearby. Our family also owns property here on the island.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      I chose Indian Rocks Beach because I grew up vacationing here. I have traveled throughout the world and this is still my favorite place for an extended vacation.
