About the property

Cozy one bedroom, one bath beach cottage apartment across from the beach

This is NOT A CONDO but a single apartment fully furnished, towels and loaded with beach equipment. All you need is your swim clothing. It is attached to my home so there is a driveway with off street parking. A private backyard patio with table, chairs and barbecue grill. The beach is across the street and it is close to downtown IRB for festival activities. In 3 to 5 blocks walking distance to casual and fine dining, a nature park, bicycle rentals, convenience store and more. The "Jolly Trolley" stops across the street to give you carefree and easy access to Clearwater and St. Pete Beach for gulf activities, shopping and restaurants so you don't have to drive or worry about parking at these congested beaches.

About Ruth Coopee

Owner AND your cleaning lady so I can guarantee the condition and cleanliness of the cottage.

Ruth Coopee purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Ruth Coopee chose Indian Rocks Beach

The 12th street beach entrance is across the street. Walk 1 block north to convenience store, two blocks to have ice cream, rent a bicycle or grab a beer at a local hangout. The apartment is attached to my home so if you need anything just knock on my door!

What makes this apartment unique

Your side of the house has a private patio with barbeque and shaded sitting area. A great place to watch the stars at the end of the day or have morning coffee while overlooking the fruit trees in the back yard or take a walk to some of the best breakfast spots in town. The "Jolly Trolley" stops for North and South are right out your door for exploring from Clearwater to St. Pete Beach.

Perfect little home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home and very accommodating. Very comfortable cozy area, a simple walk across the road to get to the beach access. We enjoyed our honeymoon there very much! For the price you can't beat this, it was very affordable to stay practically right next to the beach and have a ton of fun things to do within walking distance.

We stayed for 6 days and wish we could stay longer. Ms. Ruth is a wonderful person and has a very comfortable home for us to stay in. All amenities were provided to make us feel at home. The location is amazing just walk across the street and you are at the beach which is beautiful. You are close to lots of fun things to do but it is amazingly quiet and not crowded and busy like the tourist areas. We loved our stay and are already planning our next trip there.

The property and Ruth were great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Ruth's guest apartment. It is steps to a great beach and has everything you could need for a great stay. The barbeque and seating area in the back yard were nice after a hard day at the beach.

My sister and I had a great time.The bed was comfy and the futon was also comfy. Everything we needed was there. If there were any issues it was great to have the owner right there to assist. Across the street to a great beach.Quiet at night even though it was close to the main road .We had a few cool day s so we drove 20 minutes south to Johns Pass and spent the day shopping and enjoying the view.We also drove to Tarpon Springs enjoyed the shops and the history of the town

A very relaxing and beautiful week!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at "Ruth's place" It was very relaxing. With her supplies of chairs and umbrellas we spent much time at the beach which is only a walk across the street. She even took us sailing! It was also nice to know we were always a phone call away for help or suggestions. She supplied us with a binder of local activities and information. :-)
