Private Homes house description

This historic cottage, originally constructed in the 1930s, is just what most people envision a beach house to be. Charming, cozy, and well appointed, our house has a warmth and beauty that will keep you coming back. Constructed before the current building codes, our house was built just off the sand, not on high stilts as is required today. This house has the charm of an original Florida beach house and the modern amenities and updates that keep you comfortable.

Wash away your worries as you relax on your own private pool deck, overlooking the bright blue ocean. Take a walk on the white sandy beach, as pelicans fly overhead. And experience the warm crystal clear surf crashing softly over your ankles. The warm sunshine, sun bathers, and palm trees just add to your Indian Rocks experience. There is everything you need to enjoy a wonderful stay in sunny Florida. Our house is just minutes from shopping, fine restaurants, and all of Florida's favorite attractions.


FAQ: 1. Is your house RIGHT ON THE BEACH?
YES! Our house is a beachfront house. You won't be surprised by finding our 'waterfront' property is actually on the nearby intercoastal waterway, or that 'steps from the beach' means its not actually on the beach.

2. Are there any CONNECTED OR ADJACENT units/buildings on the property?
NO! Our house is a SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE. There are no other units that share the gulf front lot. You won't be surprised by finding other guests on the same property, but in different units.

3. Is the pool shared or PRIVATE?
Our pool is for the exclusive use of the guests in our beach house. You won't be surprised with other unexpected guests using your pool!
4. Is your pool HEATED? Yes, by a solar heating system (except in the hot summer).
