German-born wife Myrtle, continues her late husband, Ned Hall's tradition of welcoming guests to Sandy Shores for a tranquil respite from every day life. Surf, sand and sun, coupled with quiet solitude, magnificent sunsets, and the shade of the Australian Pines make this the perfect getaway spot. You will enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - perfect for a morning stroll or an afternoon shelling expedition, as well as beautiful-renovated accommodations. Sandy Shores is a slice of Old Florida at it's very finest. If a glorious sunset and a Margarita before heading to dinner is your idea of a good day, Sandy Shores is your home. Call Myrtle today with any questions, availability or just to chat! There are three lovely one bedroom cottages available on our property: The Gulf Cottage, The Patio and The Garden. The GULF Cottage is a single standing house - very private - and has a total GULF VIEW. It has a King Bed and a pull out Queen sleeper sofa. The PATIO and The GARDEN Cottages are situated on the ground floor of our two story building with a lovely view into our palm and flower gardens. Have a look at our pictures and find the right cottage for you. Sandy Shores has been in the Hall family for over 60 years. The grandmother of your host, Myrtle's late husband, Ned, 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. They married in 2000. Of course, they 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. Since Ned's untimely death in early 2014, Myrtle carries on the Hall family tradition of hospitality at Sandy Shores. More

About the neighbourhood
Indian Rocks Beach is just 15 min away from Clearwater Beach, 30 min from Tampa and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge just 40 min. So much to do around this area like 6 to 8 very good restaurants in walking distance from Sandy Shores and of course just steps away from our beautiful beach!
How to get there
I'm sending you a Welcome Letter with directions how to get to Sandy Shores.
