Property description

This fully furnished 1,700 Sq ft. house (not a condo or cottage) is just 2 blocks from the beach with peek views of the intercoastal from the front deck. 3 Bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms make this a perfect home for family vacations or for groups of friends vacationing together.

This home sits in the quiet beach town of Indian Rocks Beach which is known as 'the worlds safest beach'. Feel perfectly safe walking to the numerous close by restaurants, shops and bars or just take an evening stroll in the neighborhood. It's just a short 4-5 minute walk to the beach to watch our spectacular sunsets.

The large master bedroom features a walk-in closet, a 32' TV, its own private deck, a large bathroom that includes a soaking tub and huge stand up shower and a King size bed with a TempurPedic mattress for a good night's rest. Both guest rooms feature a Queen size bed each with a memory foam mattress and plenty of closet space.

The living area features an open floor plan including a large kitchen with updated appliances, a dining table that seats six and a spacious living room with high ceilings, a 47' mounted TV and a wall of windows to let in the Florida sunshine.

The front deck is enormous with a full patio set that seats 6 as well as a bistro table with 2 chairs and a full size gas grill.

Other features include:
A separate laundry room with full size, front loading washer & dryer.
An oversized 2 car garage with access to a fenced in back yard.
2 beach cruisers, 4 beach chairs, umbrella and beach cart to easily get everything to and from the beach.

Indian Rocks Beach

Car: Recommended

Indian Rocks Beach (IRB) is a quaint beach town located just south of the busier Clearwater Beach and a bit north of St. Petersburg Beach. If you're looking for a quieter beach town with access to the tourist attractions (parasailing, dinner cruises, jet ski rentals, etc) in the more touristy beach areas then IRB is the place for you! Most of the people in IRB are year round residents so you'll feel a sense of community. Known as 'The World's Safest Beach' you'll feel completely safe taking those evening strolls through the neighborhood or walking to the nearby restaurants and bars. Less than half a mile to the north is Kolb Park which features a skate park, playground, racquetball courts, tennis courts, basketball courts, picnic area and a baseball field. A block in the other direction is another playground with an entrance to the nature preserve which is a 9.3-acre preserve featuring wildlife habitat, native vegetation, wetlands, educational boardwalk, interactive, passive and natural park areas.

Our home is just a short 2 block walk (about 5 minutes) to the beach with direct access at the end of 12th avenue. Evening strolls on the beach to watch our spectacular sunsets and look for shells and sharks teeth are a must. We have the beach equipment you'll need for an outing at the beach (chairs with built in coolers, umbrella and a beach cart to carry it all) along with 2 beach cruisers to bike to nearby shops and restaurants. Along Gulf Blvd in Indian Rocks Beach you'll find locations to rent additional bikes, stand up paddle boards, boats, fishing equipment or anything else you might want to make the most of your days by the water.

Just over the Walsingham Bridge (in Indian Rocks Beach) or the Belleair Bridge (in Belleair Beach) you'll find anything you'll need (grocery stores, drug stores, wine/liquor stores, restaurants, banks, hair salons, etc).

Although we understand the Gulf Beaches are the main attraction when visiting the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area, there is a lovely area of downtown St. Petersburg that sits right on Tampa Bay that very few visitors know about. Right along the waterfront on Beach Drive you'll find wonderful shops and restaurants with great patio seating, a large park, marina, the Fine Arts Museum, the St. Pete Pier as well as the historic Vinoy Hotel. We highly recommend taking their tour to learn about its interesting history and maybe have lunch or dinner in their restaurant. Just a few blocks south is the Dali Museum which is a sight to see!

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We bought this home to escape the harsh Minnesota winters after relocating there from sunny San Diego. I would spend 4 months in the winter while my husband flew back and forth on weekends. Earlier this year we relocated again, to Seattle, which is VERY far away from our beach home. Knowing that being apart for 4 months in the winter and the odd weekend here and there is less of an option for us, we decided to share the home we love with people who choose to vacation at our beautiful Gulf Beaches. This area just happens to be where I grew up, having left for 25 years, it was my first choice of locations to find our winter getaway. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Why Private Homes:
Indian Rocks Beach was our first choice in beach towns to find our perfect winter home. Having grown up in the area, it felt like home to me and I still have family in the area. My husband and I looked, and looked, and looked for the perfect house, in fact we made 6 trips from Minnesota to FL just to view homes with our realtor. Believe it or not, it was a side trip my husband took while on business in FL that he and our realtor saw this home. He knew instantly this was the one! Time was of the essence since there was a bidding war (yes...the house is that great!) so we purchased the home without me even seeing it. The first time I saw the home was when we pulled in the driveway new year's eve of 2011 to settle in for that winter. He could not have made a more perfect choice and it feels like home to us. We hope it feels a like a little piece of home for you as well if you choose to stay with us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The living and kitchen area are wall to wall windows which lets the sunshine flood into the home making it bright and airy. We LOVE our front deck which is the entire width of the house that has a full size patio table with 6 chairs along with a gas grill. We eat dinner out there every evening to enjoy the FL evenings. We love being so close to the beach (takes us about 4 minutes to walk it) while not having to deal with the traffic and noise from Gulf Blvd or noisy neighbors in the beachfront condos. Our community is quiet with mostly year round residents. Our 2 car garage with tons of extra space is perfect for multiple friends/couples/families that are vacationing together that may have more than one car.
