Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Indian Rocks Beach - Music by the Sea on IRB

2 Bedroom + Loft, 2 full baths, Fully stocked kitchen, Ocean views on Beach!

This very clean, newly updated townhome is located in a small, quiet gated complex just steps from the beach on the Gulf of Mexico. A bright and cheery beach theme can be felt throughout the unit.

On the first floor is the dining room, full size bathroom, full size kitchen which is well stocked with new dishes, glasses, silverware, cookware etc. Living room has new furniture, 50" flatscreen cable TV with DVD player with loads of DVD's. The unit has free WIFI and long distance calls in the continental U.S and Canada.

On the second floor is the master bedroom which has a new king size bed with new mattress, dresser, phone and 32' flat screen TV. This room also has a large walk-in closet that leads to the bathroom. The second bedroom has two full size beds (new mattress), 32' TV, with playstation - 2 remotes/dvd player. The loft has a queen size bed with new mattress and privacy curtains. The full size washer and dryer are also on this floor.

The balcony has all day sun and features a new glider loveseat facing the ocean, a higher table and chair set for easy viewing of the ocean during your morning breakfast or candlelit dinner. There are two covered parking spaces right outside the unit with plenty of additional parking for your guests. The complex is now gated with updated paint, new paver drive and has a very nice private heated swimming pool which is only steps between the unit and beach.

Provided with the unit are beach towels, noodles, floats, beach chairs, misc sand toys and coolers for your use.

Within a short walking distance you find plenty of nice restaurants and nightlife, PJ's, Crabby Bills, Guppy's and JD's are just a few. There are numerous nearby attractions in Clearwater, Johns Pass, St. Pete only minutes away. A short drive to Tampa is Busch Gardens, Adventure Island and the Florida Aquarium. Legoland is new between Tampa and Orlando. Disney World which consists of Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Universal Studios has two parks and includes Universal and Islands of Adventure (Harry Potter) These are in Orlando and all within an hour and half drive.

Beside all new furnishings and paint, we also upgraded the windows, doors (hurricane grade), 1st floor bath vanity, flat screen TV to the master bedroom, new dryer and patio furniture, 2nd floor granite bath vanity upgrade, New Bath Towels, kitchen pans, master bedroom mirror and nightstand. I want this place to remain nice, anything worn gets replaced/updated!

About Lisa Musick

We live in Granville, Ohio and have three teenage boys. When they were little we always vacationed in the area, always renting condos. We were finally able to bite the bullet and purchase one for ourselves and we want to share it with you and your family. We believe our experience with renting beach condos will help us provide nice lodging for you and your family. We believe in keeping the unit updated with lots of extras and keeping it deep cleaned on a regular basis.

Lisa Musick purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Lisa Musick chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We were looking for a small complex, away from the high rises and crowded beaches but within walking distance to the restaurants, nightlife and other activities. We love walking up the beach to go to dinner and the beach in this area is really nice!

What makes this townhome unique

You are steps from the pool and the beach with no busy roads to cross. The two covered parking spots are a big plus, keep your car protected from the sun and rain, unload directly at the front door!

Music by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We returned for the second year to "Music By the Sea'. Once again, our vacation was a wonderful experience -- Lisa (Owner) has thought of everything -- there is nothing that is missing from her villa that one needs to spend a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We enjoyed our entire week despite the appearance of the hurricane Hermiane! We hope to return again next year for a relaxing vacation at the beach. Highly recommend Music by the Sea!

Music by the Sea - Absolutely FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Music by the Sea was our first time renting directly from an owner and we loved it! Having stayed in many high-end "generic" condos, I can honestly say that I will always check out VRBO before I rent through any other source. The beach villa was extremely clean, the furnishings were comfortable, and Lisa has this beach home decorated beautifully. Also, every amenity that you could possibly want - from a fully stocked kitchen to beach toys, books, games, etc. was just unbelievable.

From the beginning of our stay to the end, I felt truly at home and Lisa was so personable that I felt I had made a new friend.

I highly recommend this property if anyone is going to the Indian Rocks Beach area.

Girls Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Music by the Sea. Lisa has made this rental as homie as you can get. We had beach towels, pool and beach accessories to use. You are so close to many other beaches too. Are beach was very nice. Most days the water was calm. We spent most of the time on the beach. There are many good restaurants. We do recommend visiting the visitors center when you arrive. You can drive to Publix , Walmart , Target and many more places. We had a fabulous time for a week. Thanks Lisa for sharing. We just might see you again next year. I would recommend this place if you want a nice relaxing vacation.

This is our second year in a row we have stayed at Music by the Sea and we loved every minute of it. Have never had any issues and the property is very well kept and decorated. It is in a very good location where the beach is not crowded and there is plenty to do around. 15 minutes south is St John's pass and 15 minutes north is Clearwater so there is plenty to do, we got a week of fishing right from the beach and it was great, seen a manatee and some dolphins right at the end of the beach area, did some putt put at smugglers cover, and also many of places to eat and enjoy the beach atmosphere. Music by the sea had everything u need and more ready to go, and a very home like feel. We love music by the sea and will definitely be back next year! Was so hard to leave such a beautiful and peaceful place! But can't wait to return again.

Once again, AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th stay at Musick by the Sea and we love it more and more each time! The owners are prompt to respond to any query or concern about the place. This time we traveled by air and packed extra light, and still had all the necessities and comforts of home when we arrived. The children enjoyed Putt-putt at Smuggler's Cove (the one closer to John's Pass) and walking to the Kooky Coconut for evening ice cream and treats. Speaking of walking, even if you don't have a car (Uber is in the St. Pete area, and your first ride is usually free, have them pick you up at the airport!) you can walk to some of the local restaurants; Crabby Bill's and Guppy's have great sea food (and food for the land lovers too!), The Lighthouse Donut shop is a staple for us on the first morning and The Cafe de Paris has yummy croissants and pastries, and the Kooky Coconut has excellent tacos. We saw dolphins swimming about 100 yards out from the accessible beach, and we believe we saw a manatee too! We cant wait to book our next stay!
