Nice place but not worth the hassles

  • 2 of 5

Even though the lengthy 5 page contract stated that we would receive our fairly large security deposit back after 5 business days of departure it took OVER 8 weeks to get this money. We were sure that we would never see this money as Ron never returned our voice mails and emails. When the cheque finally arrived it was like found money as we had already counted it as lost.

It is an expensive place and I found you can get cheaper places in the area. The cottage is nice and newly renovated. One problem we had with it was the lights in the back room did not work due to a short in the track lighting so that room was useless at night. Also the BBQ grill was rusted out and didn't work properly. Another complaint was the departure rule of having to wash, dry & fold all the sheets and towels before we left. This was quite a problem for a Canadian family trying to leave at 5am for the 22 hour drive home. Exceptions to this rule would be appreciated.

Otherwise it is a nice, clean place very close to an excellent beach with lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance but like I said in the title it is just not worth the hassles. The late deposit return with no replies to our queries really soured our vacation memories.

Pictures don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Indian Rocks Beach for the first time and chose this place due to the fact that it was on the water, close to the beach, and close to many restaurants in which we wouldn't need to rent a car. We loved it! The house was very clean and perfect for the four of us. The bedrooms had 2 full-queen size beds (not sure the size) and the second bedroom had a trundle (not bunk bed). We spent most of our time outside on the deck overlooking the canal or in the back patio room overlooking the water. We even would see dolphins swim by a few times a week!

The patio and dock was perfect for the men to fish off of and the beach was literally a couple minutes across the street. There are a couple restaurants literally right across the street and many more within walking distance. The restaurant across the street can be a little noisy but not enough to bother us in the least. Although Indian Rocks Beach seemed to be a popular retirement community we had a good time exploring the island using the trolley to see Clearwater and St. Pete Beach.

We loved the house, the location, and the atmosphere and would recommend staying here to our friends and family. The only complaint we had was how long it took to get our deposit back which was about 2 weeks (rental agreement stated 5 days). Other than that Ron was very great to work with and accommodating. Thanks for your hospitality Ron!
