We enjoy most the screen porch and the Hammock and porch swings

But the sunsets are our number one pleasure.

Excellent beach location in a very nice personal home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this charming place great located just across the road from a beautiful beach for 3 weeks in nov/dec 2016. We had a wonderful family vacation with our 2 kids (5 years and 15 months).

The house felt personal and supplied everthing needed. Some parts were a little bit worn but everthing worked just fine. There was plenty of beach gear and also a wagon to easily get yourself and all the stuff to the beach. The owners were very helpful and accomodating. The house has a big front porch that is closed off which suited us perfectly where our little guy could run around without any risks of making a great escape. We spent much time on porch at night just relaxing.

The beach were perfect for us, not crowded and quite calm waters and a lot of shells. We got to see some dolphins our last afternoon in the sea, beautiful!

There are lots of restaurants within walking distance (5-15 minutes) and also a smaller convenience store next door. The street was very calm and felt safe and the neighbours were very nice and helpful.

There was a short drive to get to a great supermarket and around 45 minutes to get into Tampa.

All in all just a perfect place to stay! A five star rent!!

We would love to go back and enjoy the lovely house, the beautiful sunsets and nice surroundings!

(The only small remark was that the cleaning wasn't great, it looked good at first sight but it could've been a little bit more thorough.)

But as I said, we would love to go back!!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. The large screened porch with the dinning table seems to be all our guess favorite as well as ours. I like the hammocks as well for afternoon naps and sun sets every evening. Hope to see you next year. Thanks Jim

We have stayed in the Clearwater Beech and Indian Rocks Beach area for nearly 10 years for our annual early summer get away. We have rented many condos and homes but this place is very special. It is just a short walk to the beach. It is on a very quiet street but it is within walking distance to several shops and restaurants.

The owners provide a wagon to take all the beach chairs and umbrellas to the beach so that makes it easy to just load everything you need in one trip. Two large king size beds and 1 full and 1/2 bath worked for us. The kitchen has everything and a new refrigerator and dishwasher were added in the past two years. There is a washer and dryer in the house and plenty of hot water and towels. We walk around the neighborhood most evenings and the neighbors are very friendly and helpful. A new flat screen TV was added this year also. The only con is my husband wants a recliner in the living room to kick back and watch TV.

We were treated like family by the owners in their beach house which is just steps to the water and sand. Furnishings in the house are top of the line, along with luxurious towels and bedding. Kitchen utensils are abundant. Screened in porch is fantastic for reading, sleeping, and watching sunsets over the water. Owners are available if needed, but are never intrusive and always fun to talk to. Quiet bars and restaurants within walking distance.

Cozy beach house with ample room

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this beach house for the past two years and have enjoyed our stay. We are a married couple with 2 small children (7 year old and 2 year old) and stayed in the house with my in-laws. The house is very charming and the location is great. A quick walk to the beach and other business that we found very convenient during our stay. The house has plenty of room in the first floor to entertain the kids and the porch was great for enjoying the evening with family and friends. My wife really enjoyed spending time on the hanging bed/sofa in the porch and took many midafternoon naps there. My morning ritual included a quick bike ride (included in the house) to the local donut shop and hanging on the hammocks before hitting the beach.

The owners take good care of this house and its shows but if you want to stay in a place with marble floors, subzero appliances you should look into the tiny condo/apartments. We had friends staying in condos/apartments nearby and every night they will come over to spend time at the house. After a few days, it feels like a house you live in.

Pros: Proximity to beach (5-minute walk). Space of the property. Very quiet and safe area. Close to businesses (pizza shop, ice cream parlor, surf shop, bait & tackle, convenience store). Great place to entertain friends. Fully stocked kitchen with every appliance you may need. Bikes, Barbeque and tons of beach gear on premises.

Cons: Some of the appliances & bathrooms are dated and could use a refresher. Only one full bathroom.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review. We are up dating the kitchen in September with granite counter tops and back splash. The bikes have been a big hit as this is the first year we left them out for renters use. Thanks. Jim

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this lovely home for a week in June as part of a family reunion. We were so pleased with the comfort and spirit of fun this house provided, as were our relatives when they all came over for dinner one night. We also thoroughly enjoyed the Indian Rocks Beach area - lots of relaxing beach time, great locally owned restaurants and plenty for adults and children to do. We're looking forward to going back soon!
