Property description

Tommy's on the Beach is your perfect Florida vacation rental. Built in the 1960's, Tommy's has been renovated to include modern conveniences yet still has the charm of an 'Old Florida' beach house with a 'retro' beach cottage style decorating. There are (TWO) 2 BEDROOM UNITS UPSTAIRS which are large enough to sleep 6 guests each. There is (ONE) 1 bedroom unit downstairs that can also sleep 4-6 guests. Each unit is private and has a full kitchen and a fantastic Gulf view! We are a family friendly vacation rental and with permission, a pet friendly vacation rental as well. Located between Clearwater Beach and St. Petersburg Beach, Indian Rocks Beach is right in the heart of the Tampa Bay area.

Family Reunions: Although Tommy's on the Beach is a 3 unit Cottage, many families choose to rent the entire property for Family Reunions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Tom and I grew up close by in Clearwater and our first home as newlyweds was in Indian Rocks Beach. We raised our 2 sons in Dunedin, close by, but always wished to return to Indian Rocks Beach. We are amazed that we have been able to own and share a beach front vacation rental with guests from all over the world. Our sons live out of town now but their first stop is always the beach- there really is nothing quite like it.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
We love our property- it really is a "blast from the past" and brings back so many fond memories of the happy beach days of our youth. The gulf swimming is wonderful , the beach beautiful and the sunsets amazing. Although it has been renovated, it still has a wonderful "Old Florida" feel. No elevators or parking garages- just walk out your door to the beach. We even have a Shuffle Board Court which is about as retro as you can get. Our beach front yard is shady and comfortable and the decks and patios all have great views. We love this part of the beach as we have no high rise resorts or hotels- just a classic Florida beach town.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our guests can rent one, two or all 3 units- whatever suits them best. We can host 1 to 18 guests comfortably with plenty of privacy for everyone. We are in a quiet town but close to all the wonderful activities that the Tampa Bay area has to offer. We offer award winning beaches but great sporting , cultural and fun activities, too. We really do offer the best Florida beach vacation you can have. And, we are just 45 minutes from Busch Gardens and 90 minutes from Disney/Universal. We even have a small water park just 5 miles away.
