About Kevin & Belén Bilberry

We live within walking distance of our rental property and available for any needs. También hablamos español.

Kevin & Belén Bilberry purchased this house in 2017

Why Kevin & Belén Bilberry chose Indian Shores

We (and everyone else) love the Pink Beach Cottage! We purchased this historic property because we felt it would make the perfect vacation cottage. It's modernized, cozy, and most importantly fun!

What makes this house unique

This property is unique and has history. It was originally a small fishing cottage built in 1925. It has since been expanded and modernized more recently. Most of the structure is built like a fort with solid concrete, and we have recently installed double pane impact windows that cut down on outside noise. The infamous Mahuffer's bar is just a few steps away and also within a short walking distance are the Indian Shores Coffee Shop and the highly rated Salt Rock Grill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed here with my brother in law for a few days. The cottage is very cozy and unique. We especially enjoyed hanging out on the observation deck. It's close to everything and we were able to take to the beach shuttle to most places which eliminated the need to be driving. It was REALLY cool having the bar next door. It reminds me of bars you see in the BVIs and they have live music on most nights. Despite being next door to the bar, the cottage is built like a fort so once inside you really can't hear much. We had no problems relaxing and sleeping. Kevin and Belen also were great. You can tell that they go out of the way to make sure that guests have everything and that the place is super clean. Can't wait to come back!

My daughter and I stayed at the cottage, it was easy to find and in a good area! The beach was within walking distance and everything was close to the cottage. We would stay there again!!

wonderful place and location

  • 5 of 5

very cute,very clean,very accomodating. This place was a great choice for us. We stayed for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beach lovers that we are was just a short 5 minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach. Many great restaurants and activities nearby by in a very relaxed and less congested environment. Most impressive was the cottage itself with the tasteful decor and pristine condition. We found the owners to be very interested in making our stay enjoyable and are available to help in anyway . Very accessible as they live a short 2 minute walk away. Friendly neighborhood where we enjoyed having our morning coffee on the front stoop talking to our new friends.

Loved this cottage! I could live there! Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful Pink Beach Cottage is exactly as described. It was so clean and tidy with absolutely everything that I could have asked for. The décor was absolutely to my tastes and really made me feel that I was living in paradise. It is so handy to the beach and all the roads that lead inland. I haven't visited this part of Florida in many years, and this stay exceeded my expectations. The owners were very available if I had a question, yet they also had thought of so many things I might ask ahead of time and had all the information there for me. I will definitely return!

Our cute historic purple cottage was perfect for us. maintained, clean with very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

The purple cottage was well located, a block from the beach right behind a very cool bar which was not disruptive or noisy. Just renovated, this place is clean and comfortable and cozy plus decorated with bright fun nautical colors. The owner was accessible when needed but not intrusive and responsive to our needs. There’s also a great coffee shop a block away. We’d Stay there again if we were coming back to the area !!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage is the perfect location! It is equipped with everything you need and was very clean and super comfortable. The owners are great to work with and provide great service. I loved the decor and the ability to walk right across the street to the beach. The gulf and beach are beautiful, so this was the perfect place to stay. We cannot wait to go back! Highly recommended for a getaway
