Minimum Stay nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Beach Trail's are the ideal Florida Beach Vacation Homes for the family or individual. These beach cottages consist of 2 separate newly renovated cottages. They offer the ever harder to find quaint, 'Old Florida' atmosphere, yet equipped with the modern conveniences one is used to in today's world.

The cottages are only a few minutes drive or walk to shopping and restaurants, and two doors away from a trolley ride which allows one to explore many miles along the gulf beaches. All cottages are a fifty step walk along a beach trail to the pristine white sands and sparkling water of Indian Rocks Beach. Our tropical landscaping, decks, walkways, palms and oaks all contribute to creating a very relaxing 'Old Florida' feeling. Our guests from Europe, Canada and from all over the USA have just loved their holidays spent with us.

Our beach vacation rentals on Indian Rocks Beach, Florida are still a relatively well kept secret on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Uncrowded, unspoiled, it can give the impression of a private Florida Beach Vacation area! Never a problem with finding a spot on the beach sand to spread your towel, or fish on the surf, even during high season here on the Florida Gulf Coast!

Indian Rocks Beach (located in the Tampa Bay and Clearwater areas) , initially developed in the 1920s as a weekend getaway destination for wealthy Tampa residents, boasts three miles of the friendliest beach located in Pinellas County. People come from all over the world to visit Indian Rocks Beach for the city's fine beaches and to watch the beautiful sunsets. The city currently has twenty-plus beach accesses located along Gulf Boulevard. Indian Rocks Beach, a quiet town of 4,200 residents, is a barrier island located on the West Coast of Florida, only a 30 minute drive from Tampa International Airport. Gulf Boulevard runs North & South through Indian Rocks Beach. To the north is Belleair Beach and to the south is Indian Shores.

Indian Rocks Beach attracts many tourists due to its wide sandy beaches and convenient proximity to many Florida attractions including Busch Gardens, Walt Disney World, Universal Studio, and Sea World. The area provides several outstanding restaurants (Crabby Bills, Guppy's, and Brewmasters Steakhouse), and a variety of gift and convenience stores. In addition, there are antique stores within minutes of the Beach Trail Cottages as well as the Clearwater Aquarium.

Located just a short ride south from Indian Rocks Beach is John's Pass Village, a quaint turn of the century, fishing village. John's Pass Boardwalk offers many services including more than one hundred unique shops, inviting restaurants, daily fishing charters, excellent fishing off the pier, and boat or jet ski rentals.

For those visitors bringing their pets with them to Indian Rocks Beach, there is a dog beach on the Belleair Causeway and a dog park just a few minute's walk from the Cottages.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is everything I was looking for. Old Florida, close to beach. I love it!

A few issues with the cottage. Washing Machine was broken, and the stove has a burner out. No grill on arrival. Internet was not installed. Spoke with Brad ( the owner) , and he had the internet up in a day, and a grill delivered. Hope the washing machine is fixed soon, because the ride to a coin op laundry is pretty far.

I would definitely come again, but might wish for the rear cottage which is off the street, and quiet.

Brad the owner seems really nice.

Indian Rocks Beach is perfect for me!!
