A real Beach House (suite sleeps 8) No more condos

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Indian Shores, Florida
We call this the owners suite. It's beautiful ! . With 2 bedrooms and trundle beds on the sleeping porch it can accommodate up to 8. Sometimes we get two families with the kids sharing the porch. Walk out on the private deck and you are right on the beach with the Bar-BQ and large gazebo and teakwood rocking chairs. Cook in the large kitchen outfitted with the finest pots and pans, blender for daiquiris and margaritas, and extra large refrigerator and pantry for extended stays. Large master bedroom with king size bed overlooking the Gulf, rattan furniture for that Florida look, big TV and large oak pedestal dining table seats 6 with extra kids eating on the porch. The sleeping porch overlooking the beach doubles as breakfast area for those who get up early to go beach combing for shells. My Grandparents took good care of the place. Gu... Read more

Great place for R & R. Right on the beach. Restaurants close by, putt-putt, free bird sanctuary, all kinds of shops, etc. Can't go wrong. Bruce, the manager is super.
