Why Liz chose Indian Shores

Unique single family home located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Also has private 'cabana house' style room separate from the main house with kitchenette and bathroom, a great retreat.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I would rate this 4.5 stars if possible. My family spent a great week here celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. This property is very nice and has everything you need for a large group at the beach! The two pools give options for those who don't like the sand and it comfortably sleeps 14 with 6 bedrooms in the main house and another in the cabana house. The elevator is an added plus for bringing things up from the lower level. We really enjoyed spending mornings and evenings on the back porch watching and listening to the ocean. Part of the fire pit was missing when we arrived and they promptly brought us another one the next day. The only reason I would deduct half a star is because they were a little late meeting us for the check in and there are a few minor cosmetic issues that need to corrected, such as, the lights in the pool not working. Otherwise, it was perfect!

Great house and location Wondeful restaurants nearby. Perfect family reunion house and setting with beach literally out one door and pool out the other. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as did our family members from Philadelphia and Atlanta. We lucked out as weather was unbelievable-all sun and warm temps... Thanks for sharing your house with all of us!!!

Family Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the most wonderful summer vacation at this lovely, spacious beach home! It was a beautiful week spent here with our three children and 8 grandchildren. The home was beautifully furnished and fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. The view and our beach were just perfect! Thank you so much for all that was done to make this a dream vacation!

I can't say enough great things about this rental, the owners, the management company, and all the people involved in the process. It is truly a top-notch operation. Our party included an age range of 10 months to 76 years and we had everything we needed including an elevator and all things baby - all things! The home was incredibly clean, we never ever felt cramped, and the location is great as the home is in a space along the beach with homes as opposed to condo buildings, therefore, the beach is much quieter. Soooo nice! Highly recommend this house and this group!

Second year in a row we have spent a week here with our kids and grandkids!

Fabulous! We loved it. We would be back for the third year, but it is already rented for the timeframe we wanted. 5 stars!!!

Summer Family Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

If we could give it 10 stars we would! This home is absolutely amazing. The elevator made it so helpful to haul luggage in on the first day. The house is directly on the beach & has forever spoiled us with location. The views from every floor (three levels) are phenomenal. We ate lunch everyday on the balcony off the kitchen, such a gorgeous view. The owners have thought of absolutely everything, providing sunscreen, bug spray, towels, beach chairs, a kayak, mini fridge outside for waters & beverages, Kuerigs on every level, pool toys, the extra garage fridge, there honestly wasn't ever anything that we thought of that we wished we had, because they have it ALL. It was an absolute blast & such a great area. Far enough away from any major hotel yet still close to shops & restaurants. The cabana house was also a huge bonus for a couple to stay in so they had more privacy from the kiddos. The pools were so awesome for the kids! We couldn't have asked for anything more & hope to be back some day to visit! Thank you so much Liz, Alex & Brenda & please give a huge thank you to the awesome homeowners & their personal touches throughout the house!
