About the property

Large 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Full Kitchen, Living Rm Area

Large 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Full Kitchen, Living Rm Area, with two full size convertible pull out futons.

Super clean, all new very comfortable high quality mattresses and linens, New owners have made many nice improvements to an already cool old school beach house. This apartment has a huge private balcony that looks directly onto the beach and the gulf.

This is not your typical beach condo experience!

This large 750 square foot, two-bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen with living room area unit, is part of a large beachfront 3 unit-cottage directly on the Gulf of Mexico. The South Unit sleeps up to six guests. There is one king size bed, 2 twin beds, and 2 full size convertible futons.

Rent a one or two-bedroom unit, or take the whole place and have 5 bedrooms. Our beach house has high wooden beam ceilings and decorated in a relaxed beach chic decor.

We supply all your needs from towels to toasters and bed sheets to beach toys. Each unit is large and spacious and has a direct view of the Gulf of Mexico. All units have private decks and picnic areas, all overlooking the beach. Enjoy swimming and shelling, shuffleboard or simply relaxing in our swaying hammock as the sun sets into the sparkling Gulf waters.

We are located in one of the last small beach towns on the west coast of Florida but right in the middle of all the excitement and activities that the Tampa Bay area has to offer.

Our white sand beach and sparkling Gulf water is perfect for swimming, shelling, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and walking. Our restaurants are wonderful and reasonable. Close by we offer shopping, art museums, botanical gardens, nature preserves, golfing, tennis, bike riding and sporting and musical events. There is always a charming art festival or music festival close by.

August is a great time to visit as you may be lucky enough to witness the hatching of the baby loggerhead turtles whose mother returns year after year to the home of her birth to lay her eggs near our beach house.

We offer outdoor gas grills to cook that perfect hamburger or grill your fresh caught fish. We have almost everything you need within walking distance and are also on the Beach Trolley route for longer excursions.

We have a fire pit where roasting marshmallows or enjoying refreshments under a full moon is a very special experience. The summer weeks and holiday weeks are wonderful, too and great for family reunions. Our sunsets are amazing!

Our weather is wonderful year-round and with so much to do, many of our guests return year after year.

Once you stay with us, we consider you “family” and love having you return. Perhaps you remember a special place you went to with your family as a child. We have recreated that special place and now, we are watching the children of our guests grow up, too. We will look for you at the Beach!

About Patrice Bravo

Married with two fine adult children

Patrice Bravo purchased this condo in 2017

Why Patrice Bravo chose Indian Rocks Beach

We fell in love with this property the first time we saw it in June 2017. It is an old school beach house that sits right on the beach. Very few properties like this exist anymore.

Great Location!! Old, vintage Florida feel.

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I had a great time at Tommy's on the Beach. The property is in a great location perfectly situated on Indian Rocks Beach with private access and only a quick drive to everything you need and Clearwater Beach. The condo, a little dated, but clean and had most everything we needed. But we came for the beach and the view and this place did not disappoint. Jan was great to work with and very accommodating on check in and check out times. I really appreciated the minimal check- out requirements as well. Made it easy on me considering it was just me and my daughter. I would definitely stay here again.

Our Favorite Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Jan and Tom are the absolute best. This is our second time staying at Tommy's, and it definitely won't be our last. The property has a great location, offering easy access to local shops and restaurants, with a Publix and CVS just a short drive away. The condo itself is comfortable and has a GREAT VIEW! We enjoyed sipping margaritas and relaxing on the deck under the sunshade when we weren't on the beach. Can't go wrong choosing Tommy's on the Beach for your vacation.

Beautiful Location, Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved every second of the stay. It reminded me of being in Key West. The location is perfect on Indian Rocks Beach. Quiet, relaxing and a gorgeous view of the Ocean. The owner was as nice as anyone you would ever meet and the other tenants at the time were reoccurring guests so that tells you something. Overall 5 out of 5. If I had to critique anything it would be the finishes. The unit wasn't updated, but from our perspective it was a perfect beach cottage put together the way it should be. Definitely going to be booking another stay soon.

Indian Rocks Beach

We offer a beautiful beach and sparkling Gulf water perfect for swimming, shelling and walking. The sunsets are amazing! We have abundant friendly wildlife and you will notice our neighborhood dolphins cruising in front of our house almost every morning. You may even see a gentle manatee as it makes it way along the coast.

The shore birds are wonderful and always busy with different species coming and going depending on the season. You can walk to wonderful restaurants and the popular French bakery or hop on the trolley for a ride up or down the beaches. Our central location makes it easy to get anywhere you want to go.
