Comfy and cute
Beautiful location. The cottage is comfy and clean. Great place for kids...beach is steps away from the backdoor.
My family and I had a wonderful time at this cabin on the beach. It was exactly what we were hoping for and then some. Anyone who is looking for a low key, relaxing time need look no further. Everything was so perfect that I even joked with my wife about listing a bad review with 1 star in order to keep this place for ourselves. She didn't find that as humorous as I but overall it was a great. I have nothing negative to say except I wish we could have stayed longer.
Clean cozy beachfront cabin with everything you need, couldn’t ask for more!
Still our favorite place ever to stay on the narrows!
You can’t beat having a house on the beach
I rented in October for just myself. I rented several condos off of Indian rocks beach but this house is by far my favorite. You can’t beat having the sun set right in the living room looking at the beach. This house has that old Florida feeling. This is an old house but nothing had me fearful. It is well taken care of. This house is definitely better to rent than a condo, hands down for the price. It is very private with quiet neighbors and a quiet beach. I spent most of my time steps away from this home on the beach. No need for a cooler as the fridge is a short walk away. Also a couple of bars are a short walk away, you can easily walk down the beach or the sidewalks. I will be looking for this little gem when I come back to Indian rocks beach again.
My favorite place we have stayed at in Florida!
What a gem this cottage on the beach is! It met all expectations as stated. It is clean, tidy nicely furnished. Washer and dryer are a nice convenience. I like to cook there were plenty of pans and even spices (which I contributed to)! Oh sitting out on the porch facing the water was lovely. We had guests over for dinner they absolutely loved this place! We have plans on returning 2017 !
Perfect family getaway
We have enjoyed this clean, old Florida cottage for several years now. It's nestled in a quiet beach area. My daughter calls it a tropical paradise. My husband says it's Old Florida at it's best. Lots of privacy. Everything you need for a short or long stay. Buy some groceries, pack your swim suit, and enjoy the sunset right in your back yard. We've returned year after year and once you visit you'll want to return too.
