Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Tom is a 3rd generation Floridian and with his wife, Jan, have grown up in and in the area. We were high school sweethearts and lived on Indian Rocks Beach when we were newlyweds. We now live in Dunedin but are thrilled to own a little piece of our history, Indian Rocks Beach. We love sharing it with our friends and guests from all over the world. Our 2 sons live out of the area and their first stop when they come home is Indian Rocks Beach. There really is no place else like it!

Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
Owning this wonderful beachfront property is a dream come true for us and we are the first people in our families to achieve this. We grew up coming to Indian Rocks Beach during the 1960's so this property is very special to us and we have captured the wonderful retro feel with modern amenities. We love sharing it with our guests. We are close to everything and right in the middle of the fun Tampa Bay area even though Indian Rocks Beach is one of Florida's last remaining "Old Florida" beach towns.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are located in one of the most charming 'Old Florida' beach towns and on a beautiful white sand beach. We also are lucky enough to have a wonderful Gulf front garden with shade so you can enjoy sunning on the sandy beach or relax in our cool, shady garden. The swimming is wonderful and you may even see dolpins, sea turtles and manatees. Our romantic sunsets are spectacular and we have a fire pit to roast marshmellows under the stars.
