Overview

About the property

Two apartments with two bedrooms each, completely renovated and gorgeous!

Welcome to our beautiful beach house! This is a newly remodeled duplex on stilts. There is one apartment in the front and one in the back of the property, each with its own huge private deck. The location is right across the street from the beach and beach access. We are right next to four restaurants: TJ's Italian Cafe, Keegans Seafood Grill, Chicago Jaqx Pizzeria, and Guppy's. We are directly across the street from tennis courts and a park. Many shops are nearby, ranging from boutiques to bait shops. Bicycle rental shop is within walking distance. Hairdresser and masseuse are also close by.

Each of these apartments are for rent separately. Each apartment has two bedrooms with queen size beds, plus one bathroom, a living room with a queen sleeper sofa, a dining area with seating for six, and a full kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave oven, blender, toaster, coffee maker, kettle, and all the utensils you will need for cooking. Satellite TV and WiFi Internet connectivity are free for our guests. More information is available at http://www.bluedreamirb.com

Both apartments have just been remodeled inside as seen in the pictures. Each photograph specifies the apartment - front or rear - and the room pictured. They are exactly the same size and are mirror images of each other. We have attempted to furnish them similarly yet give each apartment its own unique charm. Please specify your preference of the apartment and we will do our best to accommodate you, subject to availability. Both apartments are ready to rent now and are filling up fast for the season, so reserve your spot today!

Outside, there is a wraparound walkway with a large deck for each apartment. There is plenty of covered parking under the building. The washer and dryer are in the laundry room downstairs and are complimentary to our guests.

We are confident that you will love it here! Email us with any questions you may have about our property or the area - we are happy to help and excited for you to see the beautiful shores of Indian Rocks Beach from the best location.

Thank you for looking at our listing. We hope you make lasting, happy memories in our beach house for years to come!

About Vadim

We have been residing in the area since 2009 and absolutely love it. It is our desire to share the beauty of the Gulf Coast and Indian Rocks Beach that made us acquire this property and make it available to our guests.

Why Vadim chose Indian Rocks Beach

This property is located right across the street from the beach and beach access as well as being right next to four restaurants, including the fabulous Guppys restaurant and also Keegans restaurant, which was featured on the food network show, 'Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives'. Our location is also within very close proximity to many diverse shops and service oriented businesses such as hair dressers and masseuses.

Being a private house, it has certain advantages over a big condo complex, such as having your own large private deck and not a tiny balcony, plenty of parking in your own driveway while not having to circle around a garage to find a spot for your car, and not having to spend 15 minutes finding your way from the garage to the condo and back. We feel it just leaves more time to enjoy the vacation!

What makes this house unique

Things to do

You'll probably want a rental car, so you can access the many points of interest nearby - Clearwater Beach (10 minutes away), Tarpon Springs (45 minute drive), Anna Maria Island (1 hour 15 minute drive), Honeymoon Island, or go grocery shopping in nearby Largo or Belleair Bluffs, (5 minutes drive). There is the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, half an hour away, if you have a rainy day, or check out the Aquarium in Clearwater, where the famous dolphin Winter lives, from the movie and sequel Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale Two. Book boat trips, deep sea fishing, parasailing, and sunset cruises in Clearwater Beach, Pier 60; 10 minutes drive north on Gulf Blvd. Just a little further is Tampa - 30 minutes drive, Busch Gardens - 40 - 45 minutes, Disney, Universal, and Sea World - 1.5 hours.

The Johns Pass outdoor shopping mall is about 25 minutes south on Gulf Blvd. where you can enjoy some of the local restaurants or rent a jet ski.

There is excellent golfing at the Belleview Biltmore, just a couple of miles away on the mainland, as well as at many other golf courses in the area.

We are located on a barrier island, which is narrow, but very long. There are public trolleys which run up and down the main road which cost $2.00 per ride or unlimited daily riding for $4.50 per person. On one side is the intercoastal waterway and on the other side is the Gulf of Mexico with beautiful beaches, palm trees, exotic birds. and stunning sunsets. The island has bridges to the mainland close by. We also have sea turtles nesting on our beach. Note: There is no oil or pollution on the beach.

You will find that the beach is clean and the water is clear. It is great for swimming and wildlife watching. You can see a variety of birds - pelicans, seagulls, herons, and egrets. If you keep an eye out on the ocean, you can see the dolphins swim by in groups of two to five.

This is a wonderful property.

  • 4 of 5

Owners have gone the extra mile to make this a beautiful and relaxing home away from home. We had difficulty with the wifi the day we arrived and our last two days. Not sure if it was weather related. Beach access is perfect...so close. Our adult family of 4 had all the room we needed to spread out or come close whenever we wanted. One bathroom was sometimes an issue but that was no surprise. It was a wonderful week!!!!

Charming , private

  • 4 of 5

Tucked away. Would be great for a family with the nearby park, tennis courts , bball and playground. We found it had everything we needed. Very adequate covered parking. One block off a great stretch of gulf blvd right across from IRB municipal beach and not as congested as other spots. Only accessible by stairs so keep that in mind😉

Don and Louise P.

We are Canadian snow birds that had the good fortune to stay here for 3 months in 2015/16.

Located close to restaurants and beach access, we did not have to drive anywhere.

The contact person was very personal and attentive to any requests we had, which were few since everything was included.

Louise appreciated the kitchenware, which allowed us to eat in when desired.

Prima Vida was very enjoyable, and we highly recommend it.
