About Edward Mass
After serving in the Navy I began my career in sales positions working for Northwest Airlines. I was fortunate to enter the travel industry where I remain today. Having run a cruise line, I purchased a travel company and have worked with wondeful people who excel at planning vacations. Yes, I have had the opportunity to travel to many places and meet so many interesting people. But I can honestly tell you I have been fortunate to have landed here in the Gulf area where the beaches are unspoiled and safe. Now days I really love to go to the beach and relax. Our place is pet friendly because I love my dogs. Jack, my favorite, recently passed away but Max has stepped up to the plate and just become a terrific partner. Max is a cocker spaniel. My favorite time on the beach is sunset with a glass of wine just watching the sunset. So peaceful. Many people come out to see the sunset because each one is unique and spectacular.
Edward Mass purchased this House in 2012
Why Edward Mass chose Pinellas County
I lived on Indian Rocks Beach back in the 90's and loved the character of this small beach community. The people are very friendly, restaurants can be walked to and the beach is breath taking. So I have been looking for the right place to return to IRB. And I found it here. It is private, no cramped quarters with other families, convienent one step to the beach, a large deck offering covered and sunning areas, the master bedroom is on the ocean so we can hear the wave action as we lay peacefully in bed. Our home is 40 minutes away so coming to the beach house is easy.
What makes this House unique
Great Deck, Fantastic Beach, One-Step access to the sand,private no crowds of people, and the most stunning sunsets to enjoy from your deck or the beach. Restaurants, ice cream store, local bars all within walking distance.

Perfect Vacation Spot
I cannot begin to explain how much we loved vacationing at this perfect beach home. The location is wonderful. You are steps from the beach, there are so many restaurants to choose from and a local Farmer's Market almost every day within driving distance. There is everything you would need in the kitchen to cook as little or as much as you want. The deck on the back of the home is perfect for quiet reading, laying in the sun or just watching the waves hit the shore. Every night people would pack up their equipment for the walk to the beach to watch the sunset. At this home, you just step out of your door onto the covered deck and enjoy the beauty of the sun going down with cocktail in hand. The walk to the beach is literally steps from the deck. This lends itself to early morning walks on the beach for shell collectors as well as late night visits to the water. You can hear the gulf sounds when you sleep. The owner is easy to work with and most importantly for us, he allowed us to bring our dog. Many restaurants and shops also welcome your pet and there are several dog parks in the area. There are many activities that you can visit and we enjoyed trips to Tarpon Springs, to TEC to watch the manatees swim as well as Clearwater Beach, Dundein and John's Pass just to name a few. I hope that we can visit again soon! Thank you for allowing us to share your home!

Indian Rocks Beach
The house was perfect! The beach was a great quite beach very nice and clean, everything was close by. Loved it!
We are so happy you could experience our home and beach.
We also love the privacy feeling when we are at the beach house.
Lovely beach cottage right on the beach, with a lot of privacy and room to move. This was our first time staying in a cottage instead of a motel, and what a difference. Very clean and centrally located, making it an even better choice for vacation. We loved it and hope to be back next year.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay.
Hope to see you next year.
Comfortable and delightful!
