Why Karen Aller chose Indian Shores

We purchased this property with an eye towards our retirement. We love the soft white sand beaches and the large number of golf courses nearby. The ability to watch the sunrise over the intercostal and the sunset over the Gulf.

What makes this bungalow unique

In an area full of condos we loved the idea of a private home. We love the screened in porch and the fish tiles in the jacuzzi tub.

My husband and I along with our 25 year old son, 5 year old granddaughter and brother spent 8 nights at the bungalow and it was AWESOME!! Steps away from the beach, had toys for the little one (scooter had about 100 miles put on it) bikes beach toys etc. This property is amazing!! I read the reviews where people were complaining about it being loud and I disagree. The police station is right across the street, however, not 1 time did they go racing out with lights and sirens blaring. The police officers made our granddaughter feel really special as each time they would leave she would wave and they would flash their lights at her and wave back . The property is fantastic, we will definitely stay again when we are in Indian Shores!! The owner is amazing as well as I added 1 night at the very end and it was no problem. Love this property and would definitely recommend to friends and family!!

We loved it and will be vacationing there again !!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was everything as described...No surprises. Unit was very clean and well equipped. We loved the location... across the street from the beach, walking distance to restaurants and very close to main land for golf and shopping as needed. Great for families flying in...just bring your own clothes and your set. They furnished chairs, towels, bikes, etc! We would highly recommend this unit for anyone who loves the beach !!!

Sunrise Beach, MO

The location is excellent!

  • 4 of 5

It is only about a half of a block walk to the beach. The sunsets are spectacular! The house was clean and very well equipped with all the beach necessities. The kitchen had nice new appliances and all you need. On the down side, the beds were uncomfortable and in need of new mattresses. The side street next to the living room is busy and can get so loud that you can't hear the tv. Just a note to say Pinellas County is NOT dog friendly. Dogs are not allowed on the beach or in the parks. You can only walk them on the streets.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your stay. Watching the sunset is one of our favorite activities. Our beds are less then three years old, but we do understand that bed firmness/softness varies by person.

Cosy beach house

  • 4 of 5

It was not exactly what we expected but it was comfortable. The owners filled the house with so many beach type objects. It was nicely decorated with enough linens and towels for five people. The one thing is that it can get a little noisy being beside the municple building but other than that very quite for the area. Also very close to the beach and tennis. You definitely need a car to get around. A very nice place.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days at this rental. It was very clean, well stocked, comfortable and homey. Loved the location so close to the beach and yet, being across the street, private and away from the busyness of the beach and Gulf Blvd. Loved the screened porch to eat, read or just relax. Would love to return to the bungalow again.

Perfect Cottage at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our vacation stay at Beach Bungalow and would definitely rent it again!! The cottage was completely stocked with everything we needed. The location was great with the beautiful beach right across the street. The beach chairs and bikes were really appreciated and were used everyday. We would recommend staying here to all of our family and friends.

Indian Shores Beach

Indian Shores is a small, quiet beach community located along the Gulf Coast of the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Beaches. Home to over two and one-half miles of pristine beaches, the City of Indian Shores provides nine beach accesses, eight are pedestrian, the large one for parking is Tiki Gardens with facilities and close to the Park Boulevard public boat ramp. Recently, the City of Indian Shores replaced its road infrastructure, buried its utility lines, and now offers both pedestrian and bicycle right-of-ways.

Our beach bungalow is located next to the municipal center with playground, lighted tennis court, restrooms, covered pavilion and fishing pier. Walking distance to Salt Rock Grill for when you don't want to cook dinner and Indian Shores Coffee for your morning muffin and coffee.
