Originally known as Indian Rocks South Shore, this quiet beach town is one of the oldest and smallest beach communities with the longest name. It was named Indian Rocks Beach, South Shore because the tiny community wanted a separate identity from the City of Indian Rocks Beach. The Town averages only a block in width between the Gulf of Mexico and by an area known as The Narrows.

It was originally an Indian campsite and got its name from the large red rocks found along its shoreline. Its first "settlers" were a pair of Robinson Crusoe-Type brothers named Cochran. In 1883 four Cedar Key speculators sailing to St. Petersburg, stopped to explore the Island. They were fascinated by the Island's possibilities for future development and bought it from the Cochran Brothers for a nominal sum. It is said the brothers bartered their Island "for little more than a string of beads and $25.00, figuratively speaking, like the Indians of Manhattan". The region soon became a popular residential and vacation area for many prominent Tampans such as the McKay family. (Tampa Tribune)

Until a wooden turn bridge was built in 1916, a ferryboat transported pedestrians to the Island, and a barge carried horses, buggies and a few automobiles to the summer resort. In 1905 the Railroad ran a spur line from the mainland to the beach and a hotel was built, adding to the Island's popularity. The railroad spur was abandoned later, but the community continued to grow especially during the Post-World War II building boom. Eventually in 1973 the name was officially changed to the more manageable Indian Shores. Presently the town's residential quality and its assortment of shops and restaurants help visitors feel right at home and is popular from snowbirds to seabirds. Favorite local spots are the eccentric Indian Shores Coffee Company and the popular Salt Rock Grill.

This was our second year staying at this property. It is well kept and very comfortable. It's in a great location with many shops and restaurants nearby. There is a cute ice cream shop right across the street. John's Pass is a short drive away as well as Clearwater Beach. We would definitely recommend this property.

Great views from this special spot.

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is perfect! Super clean, and had everything we needed for the 3 nights we were there. Comfortable bed and great shower is always a great start and unit 5 sure did have both of those.

The only negative I found (not about the rental property), is the excessive paperwork needed to rent this unit, otherwise we really enjoyed ourselves.

Enjoyable visit!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with you for a short visit. We are always looking for a 1BR unit in a smaller property. It was just perfect for us. Another couple was with us that had another unit. They both were decorated nicely and we were very pleased. The weather was a little chilly so we were in the units more than we normally would have been. We will try to stay here again if circumstances bring us to the area.

This is by far my favorite place to stay in Indian Shores! The unit and grounds are kept very clean, the sand is a few steps away, and having a fire on the beach at night is amazing!

Great Beach Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Cozy 2nd floor bungalow with all the right stuff and all updated, so very modern beachy feel. The bed in #5 is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in (including my own $2500 Dr Bruce bed). The fridge is the perfect size and the kitchen had everything we needed (there were coffee filters, no coffee, bring your own paper products and bar soap and there were only two tiny bottles of shampoo/conditioner. Whatever is there was probably left over from the last guest). We had to stop at a Walmart several miles away to get the things we thought we might need, and that was just guessing. One of the things we enjoyed was sharing and swapping what was left over on our last day with other guests. This place has low beach chairs you can bring out to the beach and umbrellas, so that was nice. There's a fire pit and firewood and more very nice beach chairs. Due to being on the 2nd floor, we didn't get an unobstructed view of the ocean due to a line of 6 palm trees at the lawn's edge, but the sunsets were still spectacular. All in all it was a very pleasant stay. I wished we could have stayed longer and used the bikes and kayaks they provide to guests. We did use the boogie boards they provided and they proved to be great for wave-jumping. There are also life-jackets if you want one. This place is classy and clean and we highly recommend it. Just pay attention to all the rules and you should have a great time too.

Clean and Neat

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was to small and the toilet made strange noises. The a/c was not adequate for a top floor unit. It was a clean unit and just the right size for 2 people. The beach was nice and not crowded. Internet needs work but that's not your fault. Enjoyed the stay.
