Our family had a wonderful experience at this outstanding beach house. There were 12 persons celebrating our 50 anniversary.We rented the whole house. The children loved the pool and beach. The pool was very clean, and patio was very pretty. We have nothing but praise . Ray was very nice and Sonya's mother a treasure. We would absolutely recommend this property.

One of a kind!
One of a kind!
Sonia's Beach Cottage was the perfect place for our family vacation. We slept 10 people and there was more than enough space for everybody. The pool and hot tub were maintained throughout the week. The charcoal grill was nice too. The sunsets were unbelievable and you had an amazing view from every patio & balcony. The private beach access was awesome, perfect sand, and had plenty of beach chairs and pool toys. It was close to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and CVS. The house managers were very friendly and helpful with everything. Saw dolphins swim by every evening! It was perfect for my beach wedding. We will definitely be coming back!

We rented the lower two units for 5 nights in October. Both units were clean and more than adequate. My mom who is disabled stayed in the studio on the lower level and it was perfect for her with no stairs, a large walk in shower, etc. The middle unit was perfect for us with 2 children... we had our morning coffee and evening cocktails on the large deck. The rental had everything we needed, lots of pool toys, beach toys, umbrella's, etc. We hardly left the cottage as the kids were happy to be at the beach or in the pool. We got a kick out of all the gecko's my son would catch and brought home tons of shells we found on our own beach. There is an ice cream shop down the alley and we would walk there almost every day. But the majority of our meals were prepared at the cottage using the BBQ grill! Sonia is a pleasure to work with and we would certainly stay here again! Our only complaint was the caretaker and her older son who would walk through the property to get to the beach... he would come and go with his friends. One late night we were enjoying the hot tub and we were pretty startled to have someone walk through at midnight.. it's not something you expect at a private home. The caretaker also used the laundry room for personal laundry the last two days we were there which meant our laundry did not get done. We finally put some wet towels into the dryer and the caretaker approached us saying we should have folded her laundry when we removed it from the dryer to put ours in! Even with the caretaker issues, we give this place 5 stars. It was an excellent vacation and the above paragraph wasn't anything to change that, just a little annoying to have our privacy disturbed. Everyday we woke up and thought 'this is paradise'. Thank you Sonia for sharing your beach cottage with our family!

Manager response: I am so happy that you and your family had a wonderful stay at my beach house and that you were so pleased with the accommodations. I work hard with my staff to provide a well maintained property. What is great about the house is that various family members can choose the unit that fits their needs. The deck provides such a beautiful vista of the gulf and it is my favorite place to enjoy the sunset. I would like to address your laundry room issue. Normally I have whole house rentals. Then everyone knows each other and can manage and arrange their laundry schedule amongst each other. During your stay you rented 2 units and there were other guests in the third unit. They did their laundry and then left. They checked out before you and my manager's job is to promptly wash the linens and clean the unit to make it ready for the next guests. The clothing that was being done was left by the other guests and those items were being washed to be saved and sent back to whom they belonged. I'm sorry the laundry area was busy when you wanted to use it. As far as the person you saw walking through the property to get to the beach was not my manager's son. We do have gates and post no trespassing signs. Unfortunately, someone thought they could cut through on private property to access the beach and not walk to the public beach access. The wonderful part about our beach and the town of Indian Rocks is that it is one of the safest places. I'm glad that those were minor inconveniences and did not keep you from giving my house a five star rating. Thank you for being my guests and we look forward to your coming back for another great vacation at my beach house. You can be sure we will do everything to make your stay an enjoyable one.
Exactly what was needed!!!
Exactly what was needed!!!
We have stayed in clearwater for several years but wanted something different this year. Sonias Cottage was exactly what was needed. Sonia and Rajean were great to deal with. We had a total of 10 people at the cottage but privacy was not a problem. The three seperate units worked out great although majority of the time was spent down at the pool. Words can not explain how enjoyable the pool overlooking the beach was. For our family this exactly where we hoping for. Shopping and restaraunts a short drive away, not much in walking distance. We found cooking out on the bbq was the way to go. Thank you Sonia, look forward to next year.

Wonderful Beach Experience!
Wonderful Beach Experience!
This was our first experience with a beach house rental- and we were nervous! We had 16 people coming to join in the fun and we wanted everything to go well. Sonia was very helpful in answering any questions we had before our arrival. She even purchased a pack-n-play for the unit at our request for one. Once we arrived, all of our fears subsided. The cottage is in a PERFECT location. We could not have asked for better. There is a small private area of the sandy beach. We literaly had no idea that there were hundreds of people steps away (couldn't see or hear them until you got closer to the water). The saltwater pool was amazing. We appreciated the fence with many small kids. Ice cream is a VERY short walk down a quaint alley. Sonia's mother and the caretakers were also very friendly (even bringing us special homemade bread). One thing to note about the 2bed 2 bath unit. You can tell that this is Sonia's "home" when she is there. Nothing really wrong with it, but it feels like you are staying in someone's house and not a hotel (has a house's typical "junk drawer" etc.) The other units had much more of a hotel feel. My only hesitation with giving this Beach Cottage such a great review would be that more peoeple would find out about it and make it harder for us to stay there again next year :).

Piece of paradise!!
Piece of paradise!!
This home (s) has it all; three separate spaces with a total of 5 bedrooms + extra sleeping space (for 5-6 additional people), beautiful pool and hot tub, directly on the sands of IRB, off the main road, ice cream/restaurants within walking distance, short drive to clearwater beach (< 10 min) and John's Pass (10 min), spectacular sunsets... 11 of us (ages 2 1/2-76y) shared this home for one week and space was perfect to spread out for sleeping but still be together for daytime fun! The pictures really don't do this justice! We used the smaller two bedroom unit as our hub to be together during the day and ate most meals on the deck on the second floor. The larger two bedroom (multilevel) is set back and was a perfect space for my parents to have a quieter space to retreat to when they needed a break from the pool, beach, etc. Bottom floor is the studio which is located directly off the pool patio and very convenient for use as a pool house. We saw dolphins in the AM and even a manatee off the shore!! Nice ocean breeze made the heat (low 80s) bearable and the ocean temp (75) was a welcomed cool down. The pool/hot tub was very clean and we were able to adjust the temp. to our liking. Lots of pool toys/floats/towels/beach chairs/umbrella. Washer and dryer was available for our use. Owners/caretakers readily available and wonderful to deal with!! Around the corner (walking distance) is a Welcome Center where we purchased discount tickets for Busch Gardens (other discounts also available). Next door to the welcome center is a great ice cream/coffe shop. We ate at the Conch Republic in Reddington Beach and it was great! Frenchy's Rockaway Grill in Clearwater Beach is a favorite of ours and is worth the wait! We cooked on the grill often and if I had one complaint it would be that the grill did not light easily or heat very well. I definitely overpacked since all I really needed was my swim suit, sun block and camera to enjoy this relaxed, beachy Indian Rocks Beach accomodation!!

What a bea.utiful location. The sun falls below the ocean right before your eyes every night. The pool is warm,clean and well maintained. The house is clean, the caretakers very helpful and the owners Mother even came by with banana cake and fresh bananas. I would recomend it for a big family get together, three families can enjoy each other as well as privacy.

Merveilleuses vacances at Indian Rocks Beach
Merveilleuses vacances at Indian Rocks Beach
Merci Sonia, thanks Sonia. We had have a great winter week at the beach staying in Sonia's cottages. My two eldest daughters enjoyed their independance in the pool cottage while the 2 parents and last daughter were enjoying the Deck unit with its wonderful view over the gulf. Weather had improved all along the week. It gave us the first day the opportunity to join vacationers strolling along the beach for a 2-hour walk on sand. We had our first swim at sea on the second day and it was gorgeous, cool but more than enjoyable for our briton-french skins. We could even see dolphins swimming southward and sunset show from the jacuzi was a top-rated pleasure. The cottage is really ideally located, near pleasant and good sea-food restaurants at Indian Rocks Beach and until St Pete Beach. We went to Clearwater beach in a 15mn drive where we could feel a completely different atmosphere. We cannot regret to have chosen this quiet and private place that Sonia selected and offered to us for our first stay in the area. Et la piscine et le jacuzzi, quel privilège de pouvoir en profiter en sortant de l'eau ou en revenant d'excursion. Le barbecue a bien fonctionné et nos repas sous la huttte ont été agréables (no bug no mosquito ! great surprise). Toute la famille garde un merveilleux souvenir de l'endroit, de la maison et de la gentillesse des propriétaires ainsi que des gardiens. L'adresse est précieusement gardé dans nos tablettes.

Manager response: Dear Olivier N and family, It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you and your lovely family as guests at my beach house. I was so glad to come back to the beach myself to celebrate my son's birthday after a long absence since my husband's passing. You sharing your delight in your vacation and the accommodations is much appreciated. My husband and I took great pride in our recent renovation of our beach home. The extended decking does offer such a wonderful vista of the beach and ocean. I love the beautiful panoramic view you can get of the sunsets from the deck as well. Also I am so pleased that my design of the pool and spa was able to give you such a splendid bathing experience on the beach. Many guests often comment on the tranquility of the home's location. It is difficult to find a quiet and private place on the beach and yet be close to local restaurants, shopping and other recreation that the surrounding Clearwater and St. Petersburg area has to offer. No mosquitoes are another bonus to the area! My father and mother found Indian Rocks Beach to vacation at in the early 1950's. Our family kept coming back and my parents bought a retirement home in the vicinity because of the wonderful feeling of being rejuvenated after spending time on Indian Rocks Beach. Thank you for staying at my beach house and telling me about your experience. I look forward and welcome you when you decide to vacation at my home again. All best, Sonia Mostow (owner)
We rented all of units and we all absolutely loved this beach house! It is the best family vacation we have ever had. We had plenty of private space as well as communal space. The water was perfect, and the swimming pool was an unanticipated big hit. The tiki hut was great fun at night, and we enjoyed grilling dinners outside on the patio. The location is great- close to lots of restaurants, and far away from the main road. We had all the comforts of home that we could possibly need and are planning a return trip. Sonia was wonderful to work with.

For families & friends
In short, it was wonderful. We were a german family of 4 adults & 3 children. The house, situated on the ocean shore with private (seawater) pool, was perfect for privacy for everybody, yet with family atmosphere. 1 apart for a single, 2 bigger aparts with 2 bedrooms each, so there was plenty of space. Nicely equipped with everything you need in an acceptable condition. The pool is fenced, so there is no problem bringen small children. It was an wonderful experience in Sonia's Beach House, we'll come surely back.

Year Purchased: 1995
Why Other Indian Rocks Beach Properties:
My family had been coming to this area and renting cottages since the 1950's. In 1995, when my daughter was 2 years old I had the opportunity to get a place of my own on one of the most beautiful beaches in the area, and I'm very glad I did.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
One of the things I love about our location is that there are rarely any flying insects, so that eating outside is very enjoyable. There's an outdoor table and chair set that seats 6 that is steps from the kitchen. There's plenty of room so you can eat in the sun or shade. I designed the pool and the cable rail so you can see the Gulf, the beach and the pool while seated. The poolside Tiki hut is great for parties, has decorative lighting and seats at least 6.
