About bruce & lisa westall

We are retired educators who have operated an Ohio bed & breakfast for over twenty years. We entered the vacation home rental business because our lodging experience had prepared us for another way to entertain guests.

bruce & lisa westall purchased this house in 2012

Why bruce & lisa westall chose Indian Rocks Beach

First, we like the fact that it has a private pool and is

within a couple blocks to the beach. Also the home is

in a quiet neighborhood away from the noise and bustle of the more commercial part of the town.

What makes this house unique

Privacy. Quiet. Your own pool. Pet friendly. Kid friendly.

Perfect Christmas Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I rented the Westall's home for a Christmas retreat and we couldn't be more pleased with our choice. We had mild temperatures some of the week and when it got a little cool on the beach, we simply retreated to the heated pool!

The home is equipped with everything you need. We easily tapped into the WiFi and when we wanted to catch all the football games over the holiday, we had more choices on the TV than we knew what to do with. The kitchen is well-stocked and the bedrooms were clean and well-appointed. There were tons of towels for use in the bath and poolside.

The location is really ideal if you're looking to retreat to a nice beachside neighborhood without all the chaos hotels tend to generate. A quick walk down the street and your toes are in the sand.

We enjoyed many of the local restaurants, several of which are in walking distance. We also enjoyed quick trips to check out Clearwater and St. Pete which were short drives away. I personally enjoyed morning walks on the beach and went on runs several mornings from the house to the causeway for some pretty awesome views.

I'd recommend without reservation and hope to return soon!

Thanks again for sharing your home!

Perfect for a Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property with the idea of finding a suitable place to have our family and friends come down and visit us, as well as having a place we could go to with our pet French Bulldog.

This place more than fills the bill. Lots of room, cool on the inside for the dog, hot out on the pool patio for the humans, seconds from the beach. Hard to ask for more. We were very happy and plan on returning next year.

Great Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Was a great experience from first booking with Bruce until the day we checked out. The house is fully stocked with everything you need for cooking, going to the beach, or just lounging by the pool! We traveled with another couple with a young child, so there was 4 adults and 2 toddlers. There was plenty of room for all of us!

We loved the box of menus in the living room as we tried a different restaurant each night! Would highly recommend! The area surrounding the house is quiet!

Great Place - We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Wife, baby and I stayed here for a week. Overall, this was a great place. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The amenities are really good- the pool and outdoor space is amazing. I feel like this house was a hidden gem tucked away in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The location was perfect with it being so close to parks, beach, and good restaurants. The owners were great and easy to communicate with. We will be returning!

had higher expectations for price of stay

  • 3 of 5

Location of property to the beach and Gulf Blvd. is great. Property landscaping and house in general is also very nice.

Being a frequent vacationer to this area for many years and having stayed at several other properties including condos in the area I feel we must say we were not totally satisfied with our stay.

Our two teenagers looked forward to taking the bikes and heading out on their own to discover the area they are familiar with from previous visits only to find one of the bikes was in disrepair and could not be used.

The carpets in the bedrooms required cleaning, if not replacement. To be fair the handyman for the property did drop off the carpet cleaner with plans to do the work after we left, not much of a benefit for us however.

During our stay the weather consisted of periods of heavy rain and also clear days in the 90 degree range. This requires more attention to the pool and its condition. The pool maintenance is done once a week on Wednesdays, maintenance showed up on Thursday and the pool was beyond being attractive for swimming as we had been there from the previous Saturday. I spent time skimming the top and the bottom to remove debris and also used the portable pool vac to try and keep up with minimal results. The pool maintenance did vacuum and add chlorine however due to the high water level in the pool (higher than the skimmer to draw water to the filter) the debris on the top was not entering the skimmer and maintenance did not lower the water level to allow this to work as it should.

The chlorine pucks in the floating feeder does not apply enough chlorine to deal with the warm pool water and debris washed in from rain water and from the trees during high winds. This time of the year may require more frequent pool maintenance to avoid discoloured water and high water levels.

Everything required during the stay is available for the kitchen, bathroom, beach etc.

A resolution to the issues listed would certainly raise our satisfaction level.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We appreciate the positive comments you offer, and very much respect that you pointed out some issues that needed to be addressed. We resolved the bicycle and carpet issues, and are trying to arrange for more frequent pool maintenance during the hurricane season. Unless guests like you let us know about maintenance problems, we often don't know about them for weeks. We are committed to providing a safe and hospitable home for families to enjoy.

perfect family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Travelled in August with two kids 14 and 9 , the house provided all the amenities we needed to enjoy our time in Florida. Close access to the beach in Indian Rocks as well as beaches in Reddington and Clearwater . The pool is a lifesaver to beat the late summer heat . one of the best VRBO properties we have used !

Indian Rocks Beach is a quiet old Florida beach town on a barrier island between Clearwater and St. Petersburg. No fast food or chain motels, just beautiful white sandy beaches and dazzling sunsets. Just over the bridge however, you'll find a grocery store, pharmacy, and movie theater.
