A whole month of pure bliss!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were extremely fortunate to enjoy a month in this serene beach retreat. The Nest offers all you need along with a beautiful relaxing decor and spectacular views of water, sky and palm trees. All other occupants of this sunny beach villa were friendly and kind, and at the same time respectful of one another's privacy. Even after a whole month of beach bliss, we still were not ready to leave. We hope to be blessed again and return to the Nest in a near future. Thank you, Jeri, for sharing this peaceful oasis with us and for all your kindness.

This is my second time staying at this beautiful gem this year. I came back this time because it was a piece of paradise the first time. It doesn't disappoint!

The sunsets are gorgeous here. The water, beach, restaurants, convenience are all spectacular. The condo is clean and cozy with all you could possibly need. The owner is very accommodating and I thank her for sharing and caring that her guests are taken care of. Again, I will be back!

Thank you, Jeri!

My Wife and I have stayed at the Nest twice already and hope to do so again this Year (2016).

What you need to appreciate is through that path, shown in the first photo,

lays more beautiful beach than you could possibly want to walk - at least 4 miles in either direction.

Meanwhile within walking distance is a good pizza place and Walgreens, coffee and a burrito place

more than enough for your daily needs

A short drive away two good sized Safeway stores

There's not much to add to the many photos

The Nest is very spacious having at one time been two bedrooms(?)

Further there's more TV channels known to Man, condiments and spices of every description

and lots of stuff to do, even a library of 50 or so books

Long story short The Nest has it all

Just add food and beverages and enjoy

About Jeri Levesque

Jeri & George grew up in New England, migrated to St. Louis and raised their two sons and daughter between the banks of the Mississippi River - 'simply messing with boats.' They sail their boat Ex Libris on the Mississippi and spend summers on Narragansett Bay. Jeri writes about her love of the sea in her blog . These owners love casual living, great food and spectacular sunsets. They are avid sailors who comfortable on a beach, and love sharing the sea and surf at the Nest with family, friends, and renters.

This unit of The Nest was originally owned by Jeri's Uncle - it has been in the family since it was built. A while back it was renovated from a 2 bedroom to a 1 bedroom in order to create an open floor plan that allows light and sea breezes free access. The bedroom is large enough to accommodate a twin pullout comfortable chair that provides privacy from the main living area - and affords a quiet space for reading and/or TV watching. Our grown children and grandchildren love spending their special vacations at the Nest. It's about 2 hours from Harry Potter/Disney, an hour from Busch Gardens, 35 minutes from the Rays baseball team, and 15 minutes from Winter the Dolphin in Clearwater.

Jeri Levesque purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jeri Levesque chose Indian Rocks Beach

Unit #4 at the Nest is a place to balance the lunacy of a hectic workplace with your inner sea during a tropical vacation on the beach. Our space was redesigned for a couple or smaller families to relax and play on the beach. The unit is elegant in it's simplicity and proximity to the airport, restaurants, grocery stores, Trolley line all the way to Clearwater Beach for $1.50 or St. Petersburg Beach. We have private parking, a fresh green lawn and privacy from sea oats and sand dunes. Did we mention four short steps down to the beach from our large well appointed deck (shared with other relaxed guests), a nice Weber grill and of course, incredible sunsets?

What makes this condo unique

Privacy in a 4 unit condo on the beach! One bedroom with two sofa pullouts allows you to 'just say no' to the many other friends with beach rentals who would 'love' to hang out with you on your beach vacation. Adjacent units are available on VRBO. Unimpeded views of the Gulf, Intercoastal, Palm Trees, quiet setting, minimal maintenance, cable TV w/ 300 channels, TV in master suite, high speed Internet, unlimited FREE US to Canada phone service, DVDs with happy endings, small book library, convection/grill/microwave oven, private balcony w/breakfast bar, space for games on rainy days. Privacy with grins. We boast of happy honeymooners, baby-mooners, VayKay bliss, Snow Birds, Free Birds and happy nesters on Indian Rocks Beach.
