The GULF - The PATIO - The GARDEN Cottages at Sandy Shores

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...

This was our second stay at Sandy Shores Cottages. We stayed last year in the Garden Cottage and booked the large Gulf Cottage this time. Just amazing and a million dollar view right out the dining & living room windows. Myrtle keeps her cottages and...More

We had a wonderful time at beautiful Sandy Shores. Everything exceeded our expectations. The gardens were beautiful. The beach is just steps away. We enjoyed sitting outside watching the sunsets. Beach chairs and towels were provided. We had a car but everything is so close...More

About the neighbourhood
Our lovely property is on the Gulf of Mexico with lots of excellent restaurants like 'Crabby Bills' and 'Villa Gallace' (well known as the best Italian restaurant in the greater Tampa Bay area) in walking distance and a Beach CVS is just across the street.
Sandy Shores is in the City center of Indian Rocks Beach where you would not find high rises or big hotels. People just love that IRB is still a community with
old style Florida houses and ambiente.
Tampa International Airport and Busch Gardens are just 30-45 Min. drive away. Take the Beach Trolley for a ride to Clearwater Beach or John's Pass or go to St. Petersburg for the new Dali Museum. 'Winter' the dolphin at the Clearwater Marina is just a 15 min. drive away from us. Kids and adults just love to wat...
