Private Homes cottage description

Luxury home right on the beach. Listen to the Gulf waves hitting the beach from your bedroom. Enjoy a barbeque meal on the deck, toast each other as you celebrate our world famous sunsets.

For pet lovers we have just fenced in the back yard. While pets are welcome on our property, THE COUNTY HAS AN ORDINANCE AGAINST PROHIBITING PETS ON THE BEACH.

Also we have new furniture in the living room and master bedroom. The queen bed in the Master bedroom is now a tempurpedic mattress. Oh so comfortable.

We have also painted the interior of the cottage.

We are 'on the sand' and the sand is beautiful, white sand that stretches as far as the eye can see. Our private quiet home allows you to unwind, relax and enjoy the moment. Soak in the relaxing atmosphere, enjoy a refreshment on the patio, toast each other at sunset, all the simple things of life that are most rewarding.

For active people, antiquing (some of the best in Florida), the The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter the dolphin star of the movie 'Dolphin Tale' is 10 miles away. Baseball, Football, hockey and more sports is 45 minutes away in Tampa and St. Petersburg. The Mahaffey theater is 15 minutes away where stars perform in a quaint small theater.

Busch Gardens is 45 minutes by car and Disney is only 2 hours away.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: After serving in the Navy I began my career in sales positions. Working with Northwest Airlines I was fortunate to enter the travel industry where I remain today. Having run a cruise line I purchased a travel company and have been fortunate to work with wondeful people who excel at planning vacations. Yes, I have had the opportunity to travel to many places and meet so many interesting people. But I can honestly tell you I have been fortunate to have landed here in the Gulf area where the beaches are unspoiled and safe. Now days I really love to go to the beach and relax. Our place is pet friendly because I love my dogs. Jack, my favorite, recently passed away but Max has stepped up to the plate and just become a terrific partner. Max is a cocker spaniel. My favorite time on the beach is sunset with a glass of wine just watching the sunset. So peaceful. Many people come out to see the sunset because each one is unique and spectacular.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              I lived on Indian Rocks Beach back in the 90's and loved the character of this small beach community. The people are very friendly, restaurants can be walked to and the beach is breath taking. So I have been looking for the right place to return to IRB. And I found it here. It is private, no cramped quarters with other families, convienent one step to the beach, a large patio offering covered and sunning areas, the master bedroom is on the ocean so we can hear the wave action as we lay peacefully in bed. Our home is 40 minutes away so coming to the beach house is easy.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              One-Step access to the sand, no elevators or steps to climb, no crowds of people, and the most unbelieveable sunsets to enjoy from the patio or the beach. Restaurants, ice cream store, local bars all within walking distance.
