Picture yourself relaxing on your private balcony overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway watching boats go by or perhaps see local marine life that visits the area (dolphins, manatees, sea otters). Your dream can become a reality at this beautifully decorated, large 3 BR / 3 BA house. When you walk in the front door your gaze is immediately drawn to the pool and water. On your left is the kitchen with eat at bar and inside bi-fold doors you'll find full size modern washer and dryer and utility sink. After the foyer on the right is the hallway to the 2 downstairs bedrooms. The back bedroom is a master suite featuring a queen bed, cable TV, a three piece bathroom and beautiful views of the water. The covered patio bar is accessible via the sliding door from this bedroom. Up the hallway is a full four piece bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. The front bedroom is equipped with two twin beds. Back out in the main room past the kitchen is the beautiful wood dining table that seats 6. The living room, which is right off the heated pool, features a Queen sleeper sofa with attached chaise lounge. Watch the 50" HDTV with full cable, play a movie or a game in the Playstation 3 or stream something from your phone via Google Chromecast to the TV. The couch is positioned perfectly to view the Intracoastal or just to keep an eye on the kids playing in the pool. Now back to the stairs you noticed coming in the front door. The entire upstairs is a 600+ sq ft master oasis. It is furnished with a Panama Jack bedroom set with king bed and also has cable TV. The vaulted ceilings makes this room feel even more massive than it is. The attached on-suite features a large walk-in shower, dual sinks and a Jacuzzi tub. Also, features large walk-in closet with bamboo flooring. The bed faces the sliding doors which leads to the 500 sq ft partially covered private balcony. Relax in the morning with a cup of coffee or in the evening with a nice glass of wine. There is a patio table with 4 chairs and 4 zero gravity chairs for you to lay back in. There are stairs leading from the deck to the pool below. The backyard features large pool with waterfall, wood deck with patio furniture and the covered patio with bar and four barstools. This is the perfect area for family get togethers. There are 2 barbecue grills, larger charcoal one and a smaller table top gas grill. Past the pool is the private dock which has enough room to tie off your boat overnight.

The Gulf of Mexico is only a 5-10 minute walk away. Provided for your convenience is a wagon, chairs, umbrella, beach towels and toys to take with you to the beach.

Attractions nearby include Busch Gardens, Adventure Island Water Park, Hard Rock Casino. Disney, Universal and Sea World are less than 2 hours away.

About Brad Stroud

Hello. We are Brad and Kristin Stroud. After vacationing on Sand Key several times we fell in love with the quiet town of Indian Rocks Beach. We love the local restaurants, beach and water sports so we purchased this home as our retirement home, however that is still a ways off for us so we thought we'd open up our home for people to enjoy until that time comes.

Brad Stroud purchased this house in 2014

3BR/3BA House w/ Solar Heated Pool On Intracoastal Waterway - Indian Rocks Beach
average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

The house is nice and clean. It has pleanty of room for larger families.

  • 4 of 5

Our favorite space was the outdoor area with pool and intercostal waters. Nice for paddle boarding or fishing. The house itself is perfect for families that like privacy. Only complaint is the walk to beach . Our family likes to come and go from beach to house often during the day and that’s just not feasible with this house being 1/2 mile away. The privacy of having your own private space was a sacrifice our family was willing to make.

Amazing Place, Great Views and Pool

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an Amazing 2 weeks at IRB and loved this place, very big, comfortable and spacious rooms, very well equipped (you wont need anything apart from Food, Drink and Sun cream). It has a beach storage room, with a beach trolley equipped with everything for the beach. I've also left in the downstairs cleaning cupboard a load of pool toys which I've cleaned and stored (just been in the pool, netball, air mattress's, balls and even a giant Shark, so please give them some use).

Its situated at the end of one of the inland waterways with great views and saw loads or Dolphin's from the Dock, and the local's are really friendly. Its an easy (well lazy) 10 minute walk to the main street where there's a great little place called the Kooky Coconut (food and drinks are really good), and beach access then another 10 minutes if you turn left or right, to some other great restaurants and bars (to many to mention but they are all good).

There are well established trees around the pool, which gives great privacy so your not overlooked, and if you don't mind moving around the pool area you can catch the sun from about 9am to 6pm (in June), and if you want more sun the beach is just 10 minutes away and watch the amazing sun sets. There is a leaf blower in the outside tall seated area, look out for it, I only found it on my last day and would have saved me sweeping leafs everyday (doh). Could benefit from some proper Sun Loungers that lie flat (sorry only negative thing).

I cant recommend this place the owner and IRB highly enough, I normally stay in Beach Front Condo's but I'll go with a private house and pool from now on.

Thanks Brad for letting stay in your place it made our Vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the detailed review Chris. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Indian Rocks Beach and staying in our home. Sorry you didn't see the leaf blower sooner. ;-) We love our mature trees for the privacy they offer but they do drop some leaves every day. We hope you come stay again on your next trip to IRB.

Ireland loves Indian Rocks Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our Irish grandchildren and mom flew over to join their American grandparents for their Easter holiday. The Beach House couldn’t have been any better! Kids loved the pool and house was roomy enough for all of us! Would love to return next year!

Great house, well located and well serviced

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of eight, 3 children and 5 adults, travelling to Indian Rocks Beach for the second time in November. We were delighted with the layout of the house and all its amenities. The outdoor area was a a great hit, especially with the children, and the pier was a great spot for the morning coffee. All communications with the owner and the company servicing the house were first class, prompt replies and matters resolved quickly and professionally. We will definitely consider this property for our next visit to IRB.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We will be coming back. The house was perfect for us. We loved the back patio, pool and the dock. The weather unfortunately did not allow us to rent a boat and go fishing, but because the house had a dock, we got plenty of fishing in. The owner and 3 palms were very accomadating. We had one small issue with the sink and within hours there was somebody there to service it. Overall great experience.
