SEVEN NIGHT MINIMUM STAY (Trust us, it won't be enough!)
Wake up to the sounds of ocean waves rolling in...a sunrise stroll with the sand between your toes. Afternoons filled with family fun in the sun. Sunsets and refreshing drinks by the pool. THIS is beachfront living! Welcome to beautiful Indian Rocks Beach, a small community known for immaculate white sand beaches that are family-friendly, incredible natural wildlife, and close proximity to amazing attractions up and down the Gulf coast. This vacation oasis surrounded on both sides by water is also home to our boutique beach getaway, a fully renovated and recently updated 2 bedroom, 2 bath townhouse with direct beach access outside and every vacation amenity waiting inside.
Upon entering your eyes linger for a moment on the cozy, coastal cottage decor...then travel directly to the view from the wide living room balcony, overlooking lush tropical gardens and sand dunes that flow right into the quiet beach and azure blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A modern, state-of-the-art chef's kitchen, breezy and open living/dining room and full bathroom complete the entry level.
Upstairs, each spacious, beachy bedroom has a water view-- one directly facing the ocean, the other facing our private dock on the intracoastal waterway. Along with a king size bed in the master bedroom two queen size beds in the second bedroom can accommodate additional guests.
This unit comes fully equipped-- sheets, towels, complete kitchen accessories, TV, central heat/air, beach chairs and toys, etc. Also included are full cable service and internet access at no additional charge.
The private, beachside pool is heated and well-appointed for relaxing or grilling, with the adjoining sand dunes providing a gorgeous natural barrier to the pristine beach just steps away.
And oh, that beach... whether you're into shell collecting or water sports, swimming or lounging with a good book, this is the place! Best of all, a recent beach renourishment program has tripled the size of the sugary white sand at your doorstep.
Unlike many of the busy neighboring resorts along Gulf Blvd, The Happy Fiddler is a small boutique property located in the highly desirable "Narrows" section of IRB, with no other homes or condo developments facing it. That lack of foot traffic means stepping onto a stretch of beach that always feels quiet and private, regardless of the time of year. But when you're ready to see the sights, this property is just a short two-minute walk to the area's fun beachy restaurants, ice cream shops and shopping district.
Those interested in further exploring the coast in search of adventure won't have to travel far: the Tampa Zoo, Busch Gardens and Adventure Island are close day visits; nearby downtown St Petersburg has the world renowned Dali museum and a host of smaller museums, galleries and parks along its charming waterfront marina; gorgeous Clearwater Beach, with it's incredible nature preserves and famous Marine Aquarium are just 20 minutes up Gulf Blvd; and various charming smaller towns like arty Dunedin and Mediterranean-flavored Tarpon Springs are close as well.
All of the above are just short drives away, but also running regularly up and down Gulf Blvd. from Clearwater to St Pete is the cute Jolly Trolley street car (low priced single fares or weekly passes available). Check it out!
We are just 30 minutes drive to the Tampa International Airport and 20 minutes to the Clearwater/St. Pete airport. Book now to enjoy a quiet, family-friendly vacation getaway in paradise, where the gorgeous white sand beach is literally steps away!
