We had a lovely beach wedding at the house on April 29th. As soon as we saw it we knew it was perfect! The house is beautiful and the beach was the perfect backdrop. Waking up every morning to the sound of waves was so relaxing. Sunsets were a daily special event. The Steele's were very friendly and helpful. They even had a special gift basket for us. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend it to all my friends!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach house on the white sand beaches of Indian Rocks. Very spacious, nicely appointed kitchen. Full linens and towels and central air !! The owner was very accommodating with our late checkout request. We were welcomed with fresh flowers, wine and a sand pail with snacks and beer coozies. Loved it here and cannot wait to come back .

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for a week over spring break with 5 teenage girls. There was plenty of room for everyone. The location right on the beach was really great and it is an easy drive to Clearwater, St Pete, and into Tampa. I enjoyed the covered patio under the house, where I set up my TRX and was able to enjoy workouts outside (with an ocean view!) even on the days it rained. The owner was very responsive to questions and issues that arose during our stay. We cooked a lot while there, the kitchen is fairly well-stocked - not enough larger bowls for much food prep but we made it work. We did have to buy ziploc bags and aluminum foil to store food as there weren't any storage containers that we could find, but that wasn't a big deal. There are 2-3 grocery stores within about 10 minutes. Overall we enjoyed the house and I would rent here again.

Beachfront !!! You couldn't get any closer to the Gulf !!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW !! The house was even nicer than the description on the website. Aside from the EXCELLENT location, pluses include an under-the-cabinet icemaker, commercial washer/dryer, lots of beach furniture and accessories including beach towels, 2 coffee makers, spices in the cabinet, huge home office with ample counter space, charming oceanfront yard with landscaping, walking distance to great restaurants-Guppy's for dinner & Cafe De Paris for crepes, baby/toddler friendly with 2 highchairs & pack-n-play, big walk-in closets and a welcome gift.

The best plus was that Kathleen was super to work with us before, during and after our trip. You just can't go wrong with this rental.

While we were there, we visited the Tampa Zoo which was large and interesting. A great family experience with a splash pad area in the middle of the Zoo.

Wonderful house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at the Sundowner. The house had everything we needed. It was roomy and very clean. We were surprised to find fresh flowers and a gift basket upon arrival. The waves on the gulf are gentle and the sunsets so beautiful. Down a small path and we were at the water and we had a beautiful view from the deck. We are planning to stay there again.

Owner's Response: We love sharing our beach home with guests like Pam and James, who so thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the beach and the home's amenities and take care of it like it's their own! We are very happy they enjoyed themselves & created more memories here and so look forward to their next stay!!

Best Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to rent the house. Its right on the beach. There was plenty of room for all 7 of us. Everything is completely furnished. We cooked most of our meals at the house. There is a Weber kettle charcoal grill that we used a lot. Theres a Publix grocery store and Wal-mart neighborhood market 10 minutes East, and a Target about 20 minutes East that provides anything you need. We rented a paddle board at the Island Surf Shop about 5 minutes South of the house. We had a great time and are looking forward to coming back!
