                                                                    A cool retro mid-20th century Florida Gulf Coast vacation in 2018! On the beach with pool! WOW!!!!!

                                                                    greg w.

                                                                    One of nine cottages built in the 1940's, nicely laid out together on a beautiful Gulf Coast white sand beach that goes for miles! Updated, charming and historic gems that other Florida communities like Naples have allowed to be demolished for big $$$$$ "MacMansions". Very quiet, laid back with very friendly fellow cottage renters, many have been coming for years! The surrounding Indian Rocks Beach area homes, restaurants and bars are also retro cool laid back. Our host, Rebecca was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Her cottage is decorated just as such a beach cottage should be - again "charming"! Anyway, even with cool weather we absolutely loved it and will return again unless we find/buy our own vacation home in this area that we have fallen in love with! BTW, been going to Naples/SW Florida since a kid in the 1960's, parents had a home in old Naples for 20 years beginning in 1989, and the Indian Rocks Beach is as close to those memories as we've found anywhere. If our kids were still kids they would have absolutely loved this cottage and beach (Soon they may just show up with their own kids!)! So much more fun than a hotel or even a condo, especially highrises!!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Wow! Thank you so much! So happy you feel at home at our place. We would love for your kids to come with their kids some day! We find it perfect for families with little ones. Thanks again!!!

                                                                    This Cottage Exceeded all expectations!!

                                                                    Rob L.Ottawa, Canada

                                                                    We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and charm of this cottage. If anything, the pictures in the VRBO ad don't do it justice. Beautiful quaint place, fantastic location on the beach and poolside. I would recommend this to any couple, maybe young family. Stunning sunsets.

                                                                    A little pricier than others (with all of the other fees and such) but it was worth it.

                                                                    Great place for the price right on the beach can't beat it.

                                                                    Joshua A.

                                                                    Great place, great location, right on the beach, can't beat the price for the location. Very accommodating, peaceful. We didn't spend any of our time at the rental except sleep but still a very cozy place.

                                                                    Every thing was clean. The owners give you as much as they think you might need to accomodate your stay. I would rent that place again. Pool is nice also.

                                                                    Perfect beach experience

                                                                    Nate D.

                                                                    We couldn't be more happy with the way the cabin turned out. Being that close to the Gulf of Mexico and the beach is just outstanding. The room was clean well-organized and had plenty of space for my wife and two kids.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    A jewel on the beach!

Reminds me of the dwellings along the beach when I was a child, complete with all the charm and quaintness. The inside is adorable -- completely updated and decorated. I absolutely love it and will stay there again.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    I welcomed the 'sundown rule' for the pool because during the four evenings of my stay there was a party (

                                                                    many of whom were friends of bungalow renters) which lasted the entire day. It was Spring break however and that lends itself to the party time atmosphere.
