Please be our guest! Sandy Shores has been in the Hall family for over 60 years, and is currently owned and operated by Myrtle Hall. Myrtle is German-born and moved to Indian Rocks Beach in 2000 when she married her late husband, Ned. Ned’s grandmother bought the Indian Rocks Beach property in 1946. Ned's father George Hall built the first, two-story building in 1952. The one-story Gulf Cottage followed in 1972. Ned's family lived here in the winter, and spent the summer in Ithaca, NY, where his father was the Golf Coach at Cornell University for over 40 years. Ned followed in his footsteps as a PGA Teaching Professional for over 25 years. He was teaching at the Clearwater Golf Club located in Clearwater, Florida when Myrtle, in Florida on holiday from Germany, met him in 1998. Myrtle and Ned, of course, had their wedding right in front of beautiful Sandy Shores!
Like Ned, Myrtle fell in love with this beautiful property and its rich family history. Ned and Myrtle started to rent out their cottages in 2005 after a complete beautification and enjoyed every minute of sharing this lovely property with their guests. Myrtle carries on the Hall family tradition of hospitality at Sandy Shores and adds her special brand of German warmth. Her attention to detail and cleanliness makes Sandy Shores a unique and charming retreat.

Sandy Shores has been in my late husband, Ned's, family for over 60 years. Ned's Grandmother bought it in 1946 and his Father built the first two-story building in 1952 and the Gulf Cottage followed in 1972.
I live onsite so I am available during your stay. I've also worked for 12 years in a local bank. One of the things my guests repeatedly tell me, is that they can see my love for Sandy Shores in the cleanliness and beauty of the property. I take pride in knowing my attention to detail ensures my guests have the most comfortable stay. And, for my German visitors, I enjoy speaking German to help you feel at home.
Myrtle Hall purchased this cottage in 1946
We started to rent out our cottages in 2005 after a total beautification and enjoying ever since every minute of sharing this lovely property with all our guests.
Rest in our secluded gardens, enjoy the shade under our beautiful Australian Pine Trees and watch the Gulf of Mexico and the fantastic sunsets from your living room and dining area. You can't get any closer to the dunes and beach.
We stayed at Sandy Shores for 4 beautiful days, and our experience was relaxing, enjoyable, and our hostess was amazing. Her property is beautifully cared for, and maintained, and she not only thought of just about everything for our comfortable stay, she was readily available if we had questions. Steve and I felt like we were staying with close friends, not at a beach rental! The cottages are clean, and comfortable, and her garden is gorgeous. We cannot say enough about our stay there, and hope to be returning again next year.
Myrtle was kind and welcoming and supplied everything you'd need for the beach, which was just down a short path through a beautiful garden area. The cottage was roomy and very clean and had plenty of cooking utensils/pots and pans. Restaurants within walking distance. Myrtle really has thought of every little detail to make your stay wonderful. Would love to go back!
Excellent choice for awesome beach access. Affordable, clean, and comfortable. Myrtle, the owner, is kind and helpful.
When we (4 ladies on a girl trip) arrived we were early and our Host met us and said since our unit was not finished being cleaned we were more than welcome to enjoy the beach or the facilities she had. We relaxed in the cool breeze at the end of the property facing the beach in very comfortable lounge chairs! Once our unit was ready, we were shown around and Myrtle our host answered all our questions. It unit is so centrally located that you really don't even need a car unless you want to tour around. We enjoyed 5 resturants across the street (all within 100 yards!). Myrtle has umbrella's for use, chairs, floats - all we needed to enjoy our stay! The lush tropical feel was awesome! I loved watching the lizards! Lots of outside areas to enjoy also! I just can't say enough about the property! We also just loved our Host Myrtle and Abby (her small dog) :) I'm going to work on my husband and make him come back on this next trip!
We couldn't have been more impressed with the property or the host! Myrtle is very sweet, the cottages are meticulously maintained and everything you might need is there. The sunsets on the beach are stunning, the water is perfect. It's close to everything and centrally located between Clear-water and St Pete.
We will definitely be back!
We spent 10 days in the Garden Cottage with my husband and daughter. It is a charming, colorful and very clean place! The owner was wonderful - always available if we had any questions. The patio and outdoor space are truly a paradise - full of lush plants and comfortable sitting areas. The beach is very clean, not crowded at all, even on weekends, and excellent for long walks. In the evenings we would sit on the lounge chairs facing the ocean and watch the most amazing sunsets. The cottage we stayed in has one bedroom and a pull-out couch in the living room, so it was not a problem for us to sleep in there comfortably. Again, I can't stress enough how clean and nice this place is! I would definitely love to visit there again!!!!
