Beachfront apt overlooking the Beach

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Indian Shores, Florida
Our most requested apartment for the romantic getaway. 9 tall windows overlook the beach and the Gulf of Mexico from the second floor of the big house. Lie in bed in the morning and watch the sand pipers and the beach combers. Dine in the evening at the table for two and enjoy the most beautiful red sunsets into the ocean. Our guest book is full of rave reviews. This is the best of Old Florida.

This was a good rental if you're not picky about small things and immediate access to the outdoors doesn't concern you as there is no balcony, deck or private sitting area, but we knew that going in. So, if you're looking for a large studio...More

About the neighbourhood
Enjoy old Florida. Gulf of Mexico and private white sand beach is right out your door. Wade out to the shallow sand bar to explore the shells and sand dollars. Walk across the street to watch the yachts go by or fish in the bay. Old Timers call this part of the island 'The Narrows' where the sand is just wide enough for a single row of homes.

Historically, the most beautiful spot on the tropical barrier islands of Tampa Bay between Clearwater and St Pete. The large home and carriage house are now converted into 6 Gulf front suites
