This beachside cottage is located less than 300 feet from the beach on the beach side of Gulf Boulevard and 50 feet from the beach access. That means that once you get the family and all the beach gear out on the beach, only to hear the youngest one request a trip to the potty 1 minute after hitting the sand, no problem. It's only a few minutes walk and there are no roads to cross! The 4 bedrooms and spacious living room allows ample room for your group inside and your private fenced yard, deck, tiki bar, and gas grill is ideal for outdoor entertaining. There's also an outdoor ping pong table, cornhole, and a huge deck box full of beach toys and games.
This beach house works well for multi-generation families, small groups (girlfriends' getaway), couples traveling together, and dog owners (all wood and tile floors plus a fenced in yard). The spacious master bedroom features a queen bed and flat screen TV. The second bedroom is almost as large as the master; it features a queen bed and flat screen TV. The third bedroom is a kids' surfing-themed bunk room with a twin bunk bed and a large flat screen Smart TV. The fourth bedroom features a twin daybed with twin trundle.
Don't worry about bringing or buying beach gear. The house is stocked with boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs, beach towels, a beach cart, etc. Just bring your own Speedo and flip flops. Unlike many beachside properties this one features a large parking area with room for six cars, or a car and motorhome or boat.
A car is nice to have to see attractions further inland but guests without a car can take the Suncoast Trolley up and down the Pinellas County beaches from Clearwater Beach to St. Pete Beach. The stop is right next door to the house. Indian Shores features dedicated walking and separate bike path lanes. There's plenty within a 2 mile radius - ice cream shops, Smugglers Cove mini golf, the seabird sanctuary, and scores of great restaurants. By car the house is 5 minutes from a Publix; Target and numerous other stores are all within a 15 minute drive.
We love spending time at 'Three Mermaids and a Crab' and hope you will, too!
