This relaxing, updated home offers the best of many worlds; privacy, proximity to the beach and easy access to any big-city amenity! The beach is less than a block away; all the restaurants, parks, shopping and entertainment Indian Rocks Beach offers can be had with a short walk or bike ride; and more serious shopping or entertainment is just a short drive away! The home is tastefully decorated and is quiet and comfortable. A wonderful oasis after a day of fun in the sun. The private backyard features a custom Pebbletec pool with a large sunshelf and a spillover spa. There are no backyard neighbors - backs to a nature preserve.
About Indian Rocks Beach: Indian Rocks Beach is a perfect place to take long, leisurely strolls, but if you're more athletic, nothing beats running on the beach. A children's park is a block away while a park with tennis courts, a playground, and a skateboard park is a short 5-block walk north. For the more adventurous, jet-ski rentals, boat rentals, para-sailing, fishing charters, dinner cruises and more can be found a few miles north in Clearwater Beach, or a few miles south at the world-famous John's Pass. A wide variety of dining can be found in IRB, from quick in-&-out sandwich shops, to casual offerings from places like 'Pajanos Pizzeria', the British Pub-styled 'Red Lion Pub', 'Keegan's' or 'Crabby Bills' to the more upscale 'TJ's', 'Guppy's', and 'Villa Gallache' to name just a few.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are local owners, who lived in the house for more than five years. We had twins in Dec 2009 and converted the house to a vacation rental shortly after. We love sharing our home and wonderful city with others.
Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
We loved the neighborhood and beach when we lived here. Our nightly ritual was to take a glass of wine to the beach each night for sunset. Great way to end the day!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is updated, with granite and a built in wine cooler. Perhaps the best part of the house is the private backyard with spa, pool and fenced yard backing to a nature preserve full of mangroves and local wildlife (Great Blue Herons and more!) We are a short block to the beach and provide a large wagon to take everything you need without breaking your back. We updated the home to our standards, this is not "just" a vacation rental for us. We are happy to provide more pictures, just ask!
