About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-15)
'The Beach Trail Cottages' are the ideal Florida Beach Vacation Homes for the family or individual. This cottage, consist of 2 separate newly updated units (newly refinished hardwood floors, furniture updates, new fully enclosed fence for back courtyard, paint, outdoor lighting, and appliance updates). This 2 story home was built in 1925 and has 2 private floors. The cottage offers the ever harder to find quaint, 'Old Florida' atmosphere, yet equipped with the modern conveniences one is used to in today’s world.
The cottage is a 100 ft walk to the beach (NO BUSY STREETS TO CROSS), on the second row of houses and only a few minutes drive or walk to shopping and restaurants. This cottage is two doors away from the trolley stop which allows one to explore many miles along the gulf beaches. The cottage is a one-hundred step walk away from the pristine white sands and sparkling water of Indian Rocks Beach. Our tropical landscaping, decks, walkways, palms and oaks all contribute to creating a very relaxing 'Old Florida' feeling. Our guests from Europe, Canada and from all over the USA have just loved their holidays spent with us.

Car: Not Necessary
Beach Trail Cottages are located 90 minutes from Disney World and 45 minutes from Busch Gardens. The Tampa airport is the closest airport and a 40 minute drive. However, our family finds that flying into the Orlando airport is MUCH MORE cost efficient and the Orlando airport is a 2 hour drive. Bike rentals are available just a few blocks away and with the Public Trolley stop just right outside our neighbor's cottage, getting from Clearwater to St. Petersburg (or Treasure Island in between) is easy and inexpensive (bikes permitted on the beach). There are many other attractions such as local boat rental companies and Putt-Putt golf (the kids can even feed a live alligator while there). We have many restaurants within walking distance (featured on 'Diners, Drive-through's and Dives' is the Amazing Keegan's seafood and grill. We are a 10 minute drive from Clearwater Beach (home of Winter the Dolphin at the Clearwater Aquarium, Pier 60 with Summer movie nights on the beach and nightly artist/craft vendors, shopping, parasailing, dolphin boat tours, fishing charters, and much more). While we are close to Clearwater, it is nice to be located in Indian Rocks Beach where the actual beach area is much less crowded and more family friendly. The Kooky Coconut is just 3 houses north of us and they have amazing Ice cream, cheeseburgers, and Cubans - you can even order to go and pick-up to bring back and enjoy on our back deck! While we do allow dogs in our upstairs cottage, our beaches in the area do not permit dogs.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My husband and I had been traveling to the Indian Rocks Beach area for many years prior to purchasing the 'Beach Trail Cottages' (about 15 years). On one of our many trips to the area, we found this beautiful, well-kept, charming property and knew it had to be ours!
Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
We have always loved our vacations at Indian Rocks Beach and we wanted a place that felt more like 'home' to us that we could return to time and time again! We have stayed in many beautiful condos in the area, but they didn't quite provide us with the private outdoor space and small 'homey' feeling we were wanting in a property for our family. When we found Beach Trail Cottages, it had the charm, space to fit our small and/or extended family if need be, outdoor space, easy access and extremely close proximity to the beach (a must for our young children) we had been looking for! This cottage is located on the second row from the beach and still on the beach side of Gulf Blvd. (west of Gulf Blvd.) and there is no need to cross a busy road to get to the beach....just take a 100 foot stroll down the quiet Beach Trail alley to reach the beautiful white sand beach!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage(s) were built in 1925 and have more charm than the 'craftsman' style homes built today. We have just refinished (September, 2011) all the original hardwood floors found throughout the cottage(s). We can provide accommodations for families up to 15 people! With two separate 'cottages' and a large, fully fenced courtyard area with ample outdoor seating options - perfect for family reunions, small wedding receptions, business retreats. When the cottages are rented separately, they are also perfect for a small family vacation!
