About Mia

My husband's family has resided in Tampa, Florida since the early 1900's. When we were children, we grew up enjoying summer vacations with our families in the beautiful sandy beaches of Pinellas County, Florida. Later, we continued our families tradition with our children.

Mia purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mia chose Florida Central West

My husband and I purchased this property in 2012 as a vacation home to fulfill our dream of a beach place to enjoy with our family and friends. As a former airline employee, we have been blessed with the benefit of travel and have visited many beautiful beaches and cities. However, we feel that our side of Florida has the most beautiful sunsets and the best powdery white sands in the world. That's the reason we feel our place is a Paradise Found!

What makes this cottage unique

The property was built in 1981. When we first saw this property, we knew that this was our dream home. We fell in love with the location and the view from its balcony and it's front windows. Since we purchased, we have completely remodeled and renewed it's interior to a bright, warm, elegant, and cozy ambience. I've decorated it in the elegant style of a Hampton's cottage as our own weekend beach getaway.

In December of 2016, we just completed a complete renovation of Unit 2. This too has an open concept feel for the living area with kitchen. It has two bedrooms and a three piece bathroom. Both units can be combined to be used as a big house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and two kitchens, subject to availability. For a quote on the combined unit rental, you must contact owner for a quote.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mia,

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in this lovely place!

Thanks for being so accommodating to Penny. We covered the

couch with the sheet and folded our blanket across the seat.

She loved it!

We have had a memorable and wonderful stay!

Thank you!

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home and had the perfect view of the ocean! Fit the four of us comfortably and had a short walking distance to the public beach access. Also short walking distance to restaurants, ice cream shops, and CVS. Crabby Bill's and the Kooky Coconut were our favorite! It's on a busy road, but the cars were not too noisy at night. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway to the beach! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in this beautiful home!

Excellent Choice - Especially in this price range

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property in this price range and comfortably accommodates a family of four. The décor is very tasteful and the amenities were great also. The location is perfect - beach view and easy access to the beach, restaurants and just a short drive to Clearwater Beach if you're looking for more action. Mia was such a pleasure and most helpful in every way. I highly recommend this place if you're headed to Indian Rocks Beach.

Trully a Paradise Across the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so very much for a truly relaxing vacation. This place has it all! Central location, near many dining choices, convenient short walk across the street to the beach and stunning romantic sunsets. The patio oasis was the best place to relax and read my book without the interruption and noise of people walking and playing along the beach. I loved the décor, very clean and modern. We loved going to Kooky Coconuts for the best ice cream and their sandwiches were very good too. We recommend taking the trolley, which stops right in front of the duplex. We enjoyed the scenic drive up and down the whole strip of the beaches.

Lovely cottage across from the beach

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your cottage with us. It was "home" to us for 3 weeks and our friends from California stayed with us also for a week during our stay. It is within easy walking distance of several restaurants in the area as well as the Kooky Coconut right on the corner for yummy ice cream/sandwiches/burritos/tacos etc. (the cuban sandwiches are great btw) on your way (or during) your stay on the beach. This area is right in the middle of everything with Clearwater Beach and Sandy Key to your north just a few minutes and John's Pass, St. Pete, etc., etc. to your south. Mia was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating.

Indian Rocks Beach
Car: recommended

Welcome to our piece of Paradise across from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico,on the white sandy beach of Indian Rocks Beach. Indian Rocks Beach is located on a beautiful stretch of barrier islands on the west coast of Florida.

Our property is located at a perfect location for entertainment with many restaurants, pizza eateries, pubs and ice cream parlors. The Jolley Trolley Service stops right in front of our property. This is a great way to explore the gulf beaches, and an easy ride to Clearwater Beach. You may want to stop by the Clearwater Aquarium to visit Winter, the star of the movie, Dolphin Tale, and her friend Hope, costarring in Dolphin Tale 2.

We are very proud of our “Palmar Cottage” and are certain that you will have an enjoyable and memorable vacation at our home away from home.
