About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 persons MAX)

Welcome to Blue Heron Cottages located in beautiful Indian Rocks Beach. This cottage is a 1 bedroom cottage and the only cottage at Blue Heron with a Direct gulf front view. From your private deck you can sit and relax in the chaise lounges we've provided and start your day with a cup of coffee and the newspaper, then end your day with the stunning sunset right in front of you.

If you are looking to get away with that special someone or planning to escape for some alone time, then this cottage is perfect for you. The master bedroom is a comfortable set up with a Queen bed and full size closet with dresser inside and surrounded by windows so you're never far away from enjoying the sites of the Gulf of Mexico.

Blue Heron Cottages is part of a small, well maintained complex that has been welcoming visitors back year after year. The heated pool is located directly across from the unit and also has a direct view of the Gulf, so you can relax by the pool and not be far from the sounds of the ocean.

Kitchen is well equipped with most everything you might need for those times you plan to stay in and cook, but know that we are close to many outstanding restaurants within walking distance or a short drive; Guppy's, Keegan's, Salt Rock Grill and Crabby Bill's just name a few.

If you are looking for a quiet vacation spot to relax and unwind in a non-commercial high rise setting, then look no further than this cottage at Blue Heron. Please make sure your read our reviews. Our past renters provide helpful information on the cottage itself, but also the beaches, the area and the Blue Heron Complex. Inquire today - we'd love to have you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Jamie,



We loved your cottage and Indian Rocks Beach; it was the highlight of our vacation! Best VRBO ever. We are hoping to come back next year, we loved it so much ! We will certainly look up Blue Heron Cottage when we come back. We appreciated the simplicity and well stocked cottage. It was very clean, no bugs and the fresh cut flowers were a nice touch. Everything we needed and wanted was there. The information and drawer full to restaurants, menus and the donut tip were great. We loved the deck and the umbrella. And the beach only a few steps from the cottage was awesome! Thanks again for letting us stay at this wonderful cottage.

Relaxing

Perfect location directly on the beach. The small cottage is perfect for 1 or 2. Nothing fancy but clean & had everything needed for a relaxing vacation. Close to restaurants.

Many great restaurants nearby. A large deck from which you can watch the beautiful sunsets. Comfortable accomodations. All-in-all you won't find a better place for a relaxing vacation.

Cottage #1 was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Blue Heron cottage # 1 was a little piece of heaven for us.

Very clean, nice size for my wife &I.

Location was perfect. We didn't bother renting a car. Lots of restaurants and stores within walking distance. Used uber for shopping trips and groceries.

Jamie was a pleasure to work with.

Extremely attentive to all our inquiries as our trip approached. She answered all questions within minutes usually. She made sure the cottage was in pristine condition for us and ensured nothing was overlooked.

We used the spacious deck a lot and enjoyed the grill too. Those 2 aspects really made the cottage feel more like home.

We wanted for nothing and are looking forward to returning next year.

Thanks much for a wonderful vacation Jamie!! It was a pleasure.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year we have stayed in Cottage #1. We look forward to this Vacation every year. The cottage is always very clean. Close to everything. Very, Very comfortable. The deck is a dream to have coffee every morning or night cap in evening coming from Beach. Would recommend to anyone!!! We celebrated out 46th wedding anniversary there. Hope to do 50 yr anniversary there.

Love it,

Kathy & Jose Soto

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage by the sea. Cozy and comfortable - the deck was outstanding. The kitchen was well stocked, plenty of beach towels and a comfy bed. We stepped off the deck and onto to the sand - great beach for walking and plenty of great restaurants within walking distance. Jamie was very accommodating and great to work with.

You won't be sorry!
