This beautiful one bedroom/one bath unit is located right on the beach. It is situated in a charming cottage that is divided into three separate units. There are two, one bedroom/one bathroom units downstairs and a large three bedroom/two bathroom unit upstairs. (See the listing for the Charming Cottage by the Sea III for rental information regarding the upstairs, three bedroom unit.)This one bedroom unit has recently been renovated with all new tile, appliances, furnishings and accessories. The master bedroom has a queen bed and there is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen features all new full size kitchen appliances. There is also a covered porch off the living room/kitchen area to dine or enjoy the sounds of the surf. The extra-large decks on the seawall looking out on the beach are great for sunning, grilling and enjoying the magic of the sunsets melting into the water!. Enjoy the peace and quiet of staying in a smaller cottage and avoid the hassles of condo living. These are some of the many reasons our renters come back year after year! Hurry and make some memories of your own!

Stayed in unit B of this rental for the last week in March and we had an amazing vacation. The location is really incredible. Right on the beach and so easy to walk to everything. The unit was very clean and so cute! Very bright, cheerful and had that beachy feel. The owners made booking this place so easy. Just overall a great experience. I would love to rent this place again and stay even longer!
It was a pleasure sharing our cottage with you Teresa and we are so happy you had such a positive experience! Thank you for writing such a thoughtful review about your stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Susan & Ruthie
This is our third time at this cottage. It’s awesome!
We love Indian Rocks Beach, and this is the best place to stay! It’s perfect for us. Just steps from the ocean. A beautiful back yard. Beautiful view of the sunset! It’s our home away from home when we visit IRB!
Quiet, quaint & beautiful sunsets
My wife and I have always wanted to stay right on the beach , this place fits the bill. I gave it 4 star because you can't beat the location centrally located between Clearwater & St. Petersburg, close enough to everything without all the crowds, close to great restaurants ( breakfast, lunch & dinner) and easy to get to from Tampa International airport.
The cottage was clean, could use a little TLC (new pillows )and we needed to pickup toiletries, trash bags ,etc.
We would have no problem going back and we will be contacting the owner about future stays.
Quiet beach front gem!
One bedroom unit in a beautiful neighborhood right on the beach was a great getaway for our family and our dogs in January. We stayed in unit B which is the 1 bedroom with a pull out couch in the living room for our daughter. The unit is beautifully decorated, modern, and the location is perfect! First, is the beach! You look out from the living room, sit out on the covered deck with your morning coffee and the ocean is right in front of you! Sunsets are amazing! You don't have to lay on the sandy beach because just a few feet into the property there are decks that have reclining chairs you can lay out on without being blasted with sand...but just walk down to the water whenever you want...best of both worlds!
You can walk for miles on the beach! Go toward Bellaire/Clearwater and you'll see amazing size mansions and hardly anybody on the beach. Lots of shells to be found especially 1 hour before or after low tide. Go toward Indian Rocks and you'll encounter a few more people but during our stay there weren't too many that way either...great to have the beach to ourselves. Beautiful sunsets!
Walk to many restaurants and the Cafe de Paris bakery is just across the alley and is to die for! There are a number of restaurants you can sample when you're staying here...We ordered take out from Thai Pan Alley, walked across the street to the 18 on the Rocks, walked to Keegan's (featured on the Food Network), drove to Original Crabby Bills...list goes on.
If you bring Fido...there are lots of places for them to romp around and get their fun in too. We found the dog park at the Indian Rocks Beach Nature preserve to be A+, and when your pup is nice and tired, take a walk through the boardwalk nature preserve...beautiful (leashed dogs allowed). Want to take you dogs and let them run free...there is a dog beach just across the causeway by the boat ramp. We walked our dogs there (2 miles) let them run around, they even swam in the water, and walked back. Great place to let them run and experience a beach. North Clearwater beach is also pet friendly but you need to keep Fido on a leash (we did see that some people let them run free...not sure if that was completely legal). Honeymoon Island and Fort De Soto are 2 additional places where dogs are allowed...we made it to both and our pups loved it.
We certainly had a great time and a beautiful place here in January.
A WONDERFUL WEEK ON INDIAN ROCKS BEACH!!!!
My friend and I rented this cottage for a week. It was so relaxing, steps to the beach and beautiful sunsets. Had a slight problem with internet service. I contacted Ruthie and the issue was resolved asap. We took advantage of the patio that was just off the living room area. It was quiet and peaceful. We could open the patio with screen in and hear the ocean waves at night. Just steps away from a bakery, nail salon, laundry mat, Mary's restaurant and another restaurant. Close to Keegans, Crabby Bills, Guppy's and other nice places for dinner. Price is very reasonable too.
Excellent place for your vacation
My wife and I, with our two dogs, stayed here for two weeks. It was one of our best vacations. We will be staying again. The location is great, walking distance to anything you need. Everyone is very friendly and personable. If you want something which the locals come to get away, well this is it (I don’t know if this is true, but it sure seemed it). As for the facilities, it’s great. Its clean, updated and price right. Best of all you can walk straight out to the beach. The private porch is great as well, you can watch the sunsets and have early morning coffee and breakfast. If you want intimate surroundings…..a place that feels like a private hide away then you will not go wrong staying here. It’s just as it advertises “Charming Cottage by the Sea”.
