Tommy's on the Beach is your perfect Florida vacation rental. Built in the 1960's, Tommy's has been renovated to include modern conveniences yet still has the charm of an 'Old Florida' beach house with a 'retro' beach cottage style decorating. There are (TWO) 2 BEDROOM UNITS UPSTAIRS which are large enough to sleep 6 guests each. There is (ONE) 1 bedroom unit downstairs that can also sleep 4-6 guests. Each unit is private and has a full kitchen and a fantastic Gulf view! We are a family friendly vacation rental and with permission, a pet friendly vacation rental as well. Located between Clearwater Beach and St. Petersburg Beach, Indian Rocks Beach is right in the heart of the Tampa Bay area.

Family Reunions: Although Tommy's on the Beach is a 3 unit Cottage, many families choose to rent the entire property for Family Reunions.

About Jan Bowers

Tom and I grew up close by in Clearwater and our first home as newlyweds was in Indian Rocks Beach. We raised our 2 sons in Dunedin, close by, but always wished to return to Indian Rocks Beach. We are amazed that we have been able to own and share a beach front vacation rental with guests from all over the world. Our sons live out of town now but their first stop is always the beach- there really is nothing quite like it.

Jan Bowers purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Jan Bowers chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We love our property- it really is a "blast from the past" and brings back so many fond memories of the happy beach days of our youth. The gulf swimming is wonderful , the beach beautiful and the sunsets amazing. Although it has been renovated, it still has a wonderful "Old Florida" feel. No elevators or parking garages- just walk out your door to the beach. We even have a Shuffle Board Court which is about as retro as you can get. Our beach front yard is shady and comfortable and the decks and patios all have great views. We love this part of the beach as we have no high rise resorts or hotels- just a classic Florida beach town.

What makes this cottage unique

Our guests can rent one, two or all 3 units- whatever suits them best. We can host 1 to 18 guests comfortably with plenty of privacy for everyone. We are in a quiet town but close to all the wonderful activities that the Tampa Bay area has to offer. We offer award winning beaches but great sporting , cultural and fun activities, too. We really do offer the best Florida beach vacation you can have. And, we are just 45 minutes from Busch Gardens and 90 minutes from Disney/Universal. We even have a small water park just 5 miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to Indian Rocks Beach for more than 40 years, and Tommy's on the Beach is our favorite place to stay. The units are charming, the private beach access is unbeatable, and Jan and Tom are the most helpful and personable hosts that you will ever find. In the commercial block right behind Tommy's, there are two good restaurants and a French bakery, and other good restaurants in easy walking distance.

Our Favorite Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Jan and Tom are the absolute best. This is our second time staying at Tommy's, and it definitely won't be our last. The property has a great location, offering easy access to local shops and restaurants, with a Publix and CVS just a short drive away. The condo itself is comfortable and has a GREAT VIEW! We enjoyed sipping margaritas and relaxing on the deck under the sunshade when we weren't on the beach. Can't go wrong choosing Tommy's on the Beach for your vacation.

Beautiful Location, Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved every second of the stay. It reminded me of being in Key West. The location is perfect on Indian Rocks Beach. Quiet, relaxing and a gorgeous view of the Ocean. The owner was as nice as anyone you would ever meet and the other tenants at the time were reoccurring guests so that tells you something. Overall 5 out of 5. If I had to critique anything it would be the finishes. The unit wasn't updated, but from our perspective it was a perfect beach cottage put together the way it should be. Definitely going to be booking another stay soon.
