Property description

Manning Hammock is one of the oldest private residences in Indian Rocks Beach. Built by Captain John Manning in 1926 and lovingly restored, the cottage is nestled in a hammock of live oaks and palm trees just a block from both the beach and the intercostal waterway. Our large, fully fenced yard offers a shaded retreat with a fountain, hanging orchids, and many birds: an island oasis and a safe play place for dogs and children alike. With two queen-sized bedrooms and a sofa bed, Manning Hammock can accommodate up to six guests. A garden room, screened porch, separate living/dining room, and outside seating area provide ample space for reading and games. Rinse off after the beach in the secluded outdoor hot-and-cold shower. Seagrass flooring, ample parking, original wood paneling. Owner has additional nearby properties to accommodate larger groups.

Indian Rocks Beach

Car: Recommended

Swimming, shelling, boating, fishing, snorkeling, shopping, (antique

guides are available), relaxing in the hammock, or rocking on the

front porch with a good book. The Indian Rocks Area Historical

Society is a block away, housed in an old beach cottage. Tampa, just

25 miles away has International Plaza, Busch Gardens, and historic

Ybor City. The Seabird Sanctuary and Clearwater Marine Aquarium are

an easy drive. But better yet is the Beach Trolly (cost $1.25) which

runs up and down the beach, as far south as Pass-a-grille. Many

great places to eat, from casual for a grouper sandwich or stone

crabs, to the fancier. There are a number of places to eat

within walking distance, including the Lighthouse Donut shop for a

latte or espresso and fresh donuts, Crabby Bill's, Villa Gallace, Tapas Garden & Wine Bar & JDs.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hal and Marian Flowers, Tampa residents spend as much time as possible at Indian Rocks Beach. They originally purchased Chicasi Cottage in 1998 for their family beach house. Manning Hammock was acquired to accommodate their ever growing family with a fenced in yard for toddlers and pets. Although across the street from the beach, Hal prefers Manning Hammock because of the 12 majestic live oaks on the property, the tranquil setting, and the access to the City boat docks across the street.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach:
The most beautiful landscaped garden in Indian Rocks Beach with a real attention to detail to design of the interiors

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Privacy, Beautifrl yard. At the beach , but not on the beach.
