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).

                We loved our stay at Jeff's beach house. It truly is a beach house in every sense of the word. Just a few steps through the sand and you are on the beach. We spent countless hours relaxing on the deck and toasting the magnificent sunsets. The location is perfect. The master bedroom looks across the pool to the ocean. There is little sandwich/ice cream shop just a block up a beach trail, and there are a couple of other restaurants within walking distance. Jeff's house was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped, and the wi-fi was a hugely appreciated amenity.

                We had an amazing time! The pool was deep enough and included speakers which my teenagers thought incredible. The view from the pool and the beautiful deck was breathtaking. I had my in-laws come visit and the owners were so gracious to help us find them an apt. 3 houses down. It was perfect. The house is not modern but quaint with all the old charm in tact. I would definitely consider coming again this summer if it works into my schedule.

                Wow! This place is a GEM! I am almost hesitant to sing it's praises to loudly for fear that when we go to book ourselves for our return trip here next year (and we will) that it will be booked solid! But as a former travel professional I have to give credit where credit is due. First off, the owners Jeff and Jane are lovely people who helped us with anything we needed. Great to work with. The house is great! We brought our Sons ages 5 and 9. Each got their own "themed" bedroom. The Master bedroom is very large and has it's own seating area overlooking the pool and beach. The pool was wonderful! It's so nice to have your own private pool. You simply cover it to keep it warm (we were there in Dec) and it's super easy to do. There is a deck with a grill, bar, table to eat at and lounge chairs. There is also a private beach cove area before you get out to the public beach. It's all very private! The main beach was mostly older folks walking by shelling. The neighborhood felt safe and the people were very nice! Great restaurants all around. There is also a Target and Walmart nearby to stock up on groceries, etc. You need it, no fear, you can easily find it. So in closing. As someone who has traveled extensively and been many, many places, this is a wonder private beach cottage. We've done the resorts and private rentals before, this one was just simply the BEST. We said within 10 minutes of being there, "We are coming back here next year". So I say if you want a nice, clean, private, simple place on the beach with your own pool, this is the place. Book it........ just don't take the week we want!

                house was nice and perfectly located ... but we had to clean pool which was filthy and as of 10/3/2011 and after many unreturned phone calls we still have not received our deposit...

                Owner response: Unfortunately, our house is not a perfect fit for everyone. We try to make it very clear in the booking process that we limit the number of allowed guests, don't allow pets and don't allow smoking in our house. We strongly encourage any perspective guest to seek an alternative rental if they can't abide by those limitations. Our pool is completely cleaned and serviced once a week, usually on the day of arrival. The pump, filter, chlorinator and heating systems are all computer controlled. We leave a net and brush on the side of the house for any additional debris that might blow into the pool during the week. If this guest had an issue with our pool, they never told us. Had they brought it to our attention we could have quickly and easily addressed the issue.

                I found this place 2 years ago after searching for HOURS. I have 4 boys-8,17,20 & 23. After 3 days there the first time, the boys asked if we could come back. The summer of 2011 will be our 3rd time and I plan on going back every year until I can't go anymore. PERFECT for a TRUE vacation-do nothing but lounge and enjoy the BEAUTIFUL view and total PRIVACY. You have the pool to yourself and a little piece of heaven. I don't know if they updated the photo but they now have a cabana on the deck with a better bar area than the Tiki bar. The owners are so very nice and always available for any questions or whatever you might need. I hated to write a review, love this secret getaway!!

                If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing piece of paradise, this is the place for you! The pictures don't even do it justice - the property and the view are both absolutely amazing! The Sicards have done a phenomenal job making the home comfortable and have thought of everything! They were also wonderful to work with - they answered all of our questions prior to and during the stay and really made us feel welcome. I highly recommend this vacation home to anyone who wants a private, relaxing stay on the beach. We will definitely be back!

                We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more at Jeff and Janes beach front cottage. The pictures are a true reflection of the fabulous view of the beach. Several times we saw dolphins swimming past! The pool was lovely and we really liked that the deck was outside the fenced in area allowing an unobstructed view of the water. The setting of the cottage is very private and relaxing. The house was clean and had everything you needed. Loved the WI-FI. Indian Rocks Beach has a pleasant small town feel, with Largo 5 minutes away providing easy access to grocery shopping, pharmacies etc. A previous guest said that the locals weren't friendly. We had the opposite experience. Everyone we met were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Many times when we stopped to take pictures on the beach, someone would stop to offer to take a picture of our group. I would recommend this property to family and friends and intend to return myself!

                If you are looking for privacy on the beach and at the pool, this is the place! Bring your groceries and you literally do not need to leave the property; everything you could need is provided. The house and grounds shown in the photos are accurate and provide for a very relaxing stay. You are as close to the beach as you could get, but have the luxury of returning to the house and pool for privacy. The hosts are very kind and available should you need anything during your stay. We have already made our return plans and hope to make this an annual vacation spot.

                This was a great house to have our family vacation. We went to celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary. We spend May 10th to the 17th of 2009. Amazing. Every day was sun, sun sun. The convience to the shops, grocery stores,everything was excellent. We barely left the house. The pool, the sand the ocean....it was perfect.. we had perfect sunsets and only rain once the sun went down..It was a great house... we slept 7 of us comfortably... Our only problem was some of the locals were not nice saying we dont belong there and we were littering...no we were not...other than that we loved the house and would love to come back and stay there again..Thanks for sharing your house with my family giving us an amazing vacation and memories to last a life time....
