The cottage was previously owned by Scott & Barbara Johnson for 17 years. This cottage is very special to them as well as to us. The cottage is a special 1940's style-oceanfront beach cottage which sits right next to the wonderful pool.

A cool retro mid-20th century Florida Gulf Coast vacation in 2018! On the beach with pool! WOW!!!!!
One of nine cottages built in the 1940's, nicely laid out together on a beautiful Gulf Coast white sand beach that goes for miles! Updated, charming and historic gems that other Florida communities like Naples have allowed to be demolished for big $$$$$ "MacMansions". Very quiet, laid back with very friendly fellow cottage renters, many have been coming for years! The surrounding Indian Rocks Beach area homes, restaurants and bars are also retro cool laid back. Our host, Rebecca was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Her cottage is decorated just as such a beach cottage should be - again "charming"! Anyway, even with cool weather we absolutely loved it and will return again unless we find/buy our own vacation home in this area that we have fallen in love with! BTW, been going to Naples/SW Florida since a kid in the 1960's, parents had a home in old Naples for 20 years beginning in 1989, and the Indian Rocks Beach is as close to those memories as we've found anywhere. If our kids were still kids they would have absolutely loved this cottage and beach (Soon they may just show up with their own kids!)! So much more fun than a hotel or even a condo, especially highrises!!
Wow! Thank you so much! So happy you feel at home at our place. We would love for your kids to come with their kids some day! We find it perfect for families with little ones. Thanks again!!!
Location is wonderful, I’ve been coming to these cottages for years. It was clean. The furniture however was lacking some pillows, but that’s a small thing. Bring your own beach towels! We flew in and the only thing we were missing were big fluffy towels.
This Cottage Exceeded all expectations!!
We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and charm of this cottage. If anything, the pictures in the VRBO ad don't do it justice. Beautiful quaint place, fantastic location on the beach and poolside. I would recommend this to any couple, maybe young family. Stunning sunsets.
A little pricier than others (with all of the other fees and such) but it was worth it.
Great place for the price right on the beach can't beat it.
Great place, great location, right on the beach, can't beat the price for the location. Very accommodating, peaceful. We didn't spend any of our time at the rental except sleep but still a very cozy place.
Every thing was clean. The owners give you as much as they think you might need to accomodate your stay. I would rent that place again. Pool is nice also.
Perfect beach experience
We couldn't be more happy with the way the cabin turned out. Being that close to the Gulf of Mexico and the beach is just outstanding. The room was clean well-organized and had plenty of space for my wife and two kids.
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed your time at our cottage! Our 3 kids love getting down there as well!!!!
A jewel on the beach!
This is the second year I've stayed at this little jewel of a cottage on the beach, and I absolutely love it! Reminds me of the dwellings along the beach when I was a child, complete with all the charm and quaintness. The inside is adorable -- completely updated and decorated. I absolutely love it and will stay there again.
Thank you for the kind words. You are an excellent renter and we look forward to you coming again!
