About Patricia and/or Timothy

We have been married now for 39 years and live in Kansas. We have two beautiful daughters, terrific son-in laws and four adorable grandchildren. Life is short and we wanted to capture the best location for our preferred water, sand and sun filled vacations as well as look forward to a relaxing retirement location in our future. As we searched the entire Florida coast line for the perfect vacation home we fell in love with the quaint, peaceful area in and around Indian Rocks Beach. This fits the sand, sun, fun needs for our family. We are just steps from a jump into ocean waves, as well as short walking distances to local areas of entertainment, restaurants and shopping. Our Condo 'SERENITY's BEACH HAVEN' is tucked in between Clearwater and St Petersburg, plus sits just 27 miles from busy city life in Tampa. This provides the best of all worlds for us, a special place to share with our four precious grandchildren as we create lifelong memories together.

What an excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to the gulf coast for our yearly vacation time for the passed 6 years, but this particular condo exceeded all our previous stays beyond measure. The convenience of having such a great location, to the clean and well kept condo, and a great price as well, our stay was very much the best experience we have had ever. Everything that we needed was already there for our use. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was ample and the bathrooms were very nice and clean. We especially enjoyed the fact that we were secure due to the key pass codes for the elevator and condo. No hassles of carrying or keeping up with keys or entry cards. The pool key was all we needed which we didn't mind as it made it totally exclusive to our use. The location to the beach was just what we were looking for as well. The owners were very considerate, attentive and conscientious and met all our needs. What a great place to stay and we really loved it!!!!

Excellent, we loved the condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly like the photos, no misleading photos. Very clean and updated. There were plenty of extras i.e. beach towels, a closet full of chairs, umbrellas, kids toys and more! Parking is very safe and really like the idea that you need a code to get to the condos

Clean, great location, several restaurants nearby across the street

  • 5 of 5

Our family's stay in Indian Rocks beach was terrific. The condo was bright, and clean. The furniture was comfortable. It was very well equipped with towels, beach chairs, cooking utensils and all that we needed for a comfortable weeks stay at the beach. We were impressed to find kid friendly DVD 's and games. The sunsets were beautiful and we had so much fun on the beach.

It was so close we could easily go back and forth from the beach to the pool. Best coconut shrimp we've ever had across the street at Keegan's. Loved being able to walk across the street to eat and go back to the beach without loading the kids up in the car.

Hoping to stay here again on our next trip to the area.

Thanks Tim and Patty for being so accommodating.

Picture Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was perfect. Hamilton House is a great property and a perfect location in IRB. The pictures posted here are exactly what you will see when you open the door to this unit. No surprises! The condo had everything needed to make our stay comfortable and fun. From nice furnishings to very comfy beds. There were plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, pool & sand toys also!

We look forward to a return trip ! The owners were wonderful and accomodating !

Thank you, Tim & Patty, for sharing your little piece of Paradise!

Apartment dirty and the beach was awful.

  • 1 of 5

Apartment description said it was close to some nice places. That might be the case for younger travellers. Only walking distance to 3 restaurants, which offered too high priced mediocre food. Once in the condo, the floors were dirty and the towels hanging in both bathrooms were dirty, used and not washed. Had to scrub all 3 sinks, looked like someone dumped dirty floor mopping water in all of them. Went to get a glass to drink, and most of them were dirty too. Thought maybe water residue from the dishwasher. But on rewashing all dishes,silverware and glasses, decided they were just dirty. Then had to sweep the floors with a broom because the sweeper was nasty and wouldn't even pick up on the bare floors. Then whatever beach used to be there, it was all washed out. The beach is not fit to walk on, dirty sand full of things that require shoes to be able to walk on it. All in all, was not a satisfying vacation. Should demand money back, not a good experience.

Owner's Response: Linda, we were so distressed to hear that the condo had not been cleaned. We had no idea our cleaning crew dropped the ball. We have since made adjustments in our cleaning company. We always reach out to our guest to assure everything is well upon arrival.. After reaching out to you a couple of times we assumed you did not want to be bothered on your trip. We would have taken care of the cleaning issue immediately. "Keegans", "TJ's Italian" and "Chicago Jaqx" restaurants are all together and directly across the street. All three have 3.6* to 4.5* ratings. There are three other restaurants all within two blocks of the condo with similar ratings. Travelers continue to truly enjoy their barefoot walks on the beach in this laid back and relaxing community of Indian Rocks.. .
