Overview

About the property

Home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 5)

We are 'on the sand' and the sugary sand is beautiful, powdery white sand that stretches as far as the eye can see. Our private quiet beach house allows you to unwind, relax and enjoy the moment. Soak in the relaxing atmosphere, enjoy a refreshment on the patio, toast each other at sunset, all the simple things of life that are most rewarding.

For active people, antiquing (some of the best in Florida), the The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter the dolphin star of the movie 'Dolphin Tale' is 10 miles away. Baseball, Football, hockey and more sports is 45 minutes away in Tampa and St. Petersburg. The Mahaffey theater is 15 minutes away where stars perform in a quaint small theater. Busch Gardens is 45 minutes by car and Disney is only 2 hours away.

About Owner/Property Manager

Raised in Michigan, my family spent our vacations at a rental cottage on one of the lakes. I have been drawn to the water ever since. My tour in the navy gave me the dream (more a hope) of owning a house on the ocean/gulf.

My day job is to run a travel company that specializes in wonderful vacations from cruises to tour to resorts, we book it all.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Several years ago I was driving the beach and saw this pretty beach house. They were having a open house so I went in. I loved the place immediately. Unfortunately the asking price was way out of my ability so I did nothing but kept looking from time to time. Several years passed and the housing boom busted and the property came back on the market at a more reasonable price and we got it. By renting the house out, we can pay down the mortgage and whenever It is not rented, we get the opportunity to live our dream at the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Comfy is the way our guest describe the beach house. Quickly you feel like you have lived there forever. Convenience is the word that comes to mind when I think of the beach house location. We are convenient to restaurants, attractions, stores - just everything! The deck out front actually is on the beach. No elevators or long walks, down 4 steps and you are on the white sand. Up over the sand berm and there is one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida.

Where we are located few people come down to that area of the beach so it is very private and quiet, except for the sunsets, where it seems all of Indian Rocks Beach comes out to the beach for our spectacular sunsets!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not have asked for a better week! Weather was perfect every day! Beautiful home! So comfy and cozy and perfect for our size family. We enjoyed the perfect sun sets!



Loved walking on the beach every day and collecting shells, great restaurants and shopping! But our favorite meal was cooking the the grill and eating dinner on the deck and watching the sun set!



Thanks for sharing your wonderful piece of Florida with us.

Lovely Beach Cottage - Steps from the Gulf

  • 4 of 5

Hi Ed. We wrote in your guest book but wanted to thank you again for sharing your cozy beach cottage with us. We loved our evenings on the spacious deck watching the sun go down and listening to the roar of the ocean as well as morning coffee on the deck. My husband loved the close proximity to the beach for his daily fishing and I loved sitting on the beach with the sand between my toes. The weather couldn't have been any better. Thank you again for an enjoyable 3 weeks at your little piece of paradise.

Can't get better than this.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time to visit IRB, but the first time to rent your cottage. It was perfect. My favorite features were the view and proximity to the beach (of course), and the Sassy Cat who came to visit us on the back porch daily. We had a great day at John's Pass in Madiera beach riding a jet ski and hanging out at the Copper Clover (Irish Pub that just opened recently). Everyone in and around IRB is so friendly and welcoming. Your place is heaven on earth, and we surely hope to come again.
