Beautiful, Peaceful, and Mesmerizing! What more can I say?

  • 5 of 5

BrendaLee (the property Host) is “Joy” defined. She is one of the most kind, caring, and attentive, individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. The home, location (inter-coastal), and setting, beat a rental on the beach any day of the week. Very peaceful, great sunsets, saw dolphin everyday and even caught fish off the dock! The great room has loads of natural light and mesmerizing views of the water. Friendly neighbors, and at the same time very private. To sum it up - we stayed for two weeks and then ended up extending it another week. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

An exceptional vacation home for families

  • 5 of 5

Greetings from the cold north!,

We just wanted to let the owners and managers know we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week vacation in

your lovely Executive water front cottage. The many little delights of your property made us all feel at home immediately. (Just love the floor plan of your home.) Everything was exceptional. An impeccable home with everything we could hope for.

Thank you for the beautiful Christmas decorations – the home was very Christmassy inside and out! Bravo to the decorators! Thank you for the delicious Christmas cookies too!

The fun Indian Rocks Beach Boat Parade was a pleasant surprise too! To watch this spirit filled event right from our dock was grand!! The kids just went crazy! We’ve never seen boats of all sizes dressed up for Christmas! Many even had holiday music playing! What a special memory for all of us. I’m not sure who took more pictures our children or my brother-in-law! Haha!

Overall, so quiet and relaxing. Alan and I are early risers and we found watching the birds hovering over the water early each morning to be so delightfully entertaining! At first we were enjoying our morning coffee sitting on our patio but somehow the birds and jumping fish lured us to sit on the dock, with Alan unable to resist dangling his feet in the water each morning. Once the kids were awake - out came the fishing poles! Then our beloved walk on the beach.

We have stayed in Madeira beach, Clearwater beach and Indian Rocks Beach many times. But this time

It was very special. We expected a wonderful vacation, but somehow your home brought our family even closer…relaxing, daydreaming and just enjoying the sunshine together – many great memories! Thank you for your very thoughtfully prepared accommodations.

We will very highly recommend your home to our friends, family and co-workers. Thank you again.

‘Till we meet again,


Alan & Clare Reeves and family

Owner's Response: Dear Alan, Clare and Family, Thank you very much for your kind review! It makes us sooo happy when our guest create wonderful memories like your family has done! When I read your review I felt like you were painting a picture! ...Alan 'dangling' his feet in the water while you were enjoying sitting on the dock! What a great picture! I can see you both with big smiles too! ;-) ...then I can see your boys running into the dock with their fishing poles!!! hahahaha! Oh what fun!! Fun they will surely never forget!! You made our day!! It's not often that folks take the time to write a review, so thank you again! It means a lot to us (and to our future guest). I've personally thanked the Christmas decoration team for you and passed on your compliments - you got big smiles and loud thank-yous!! We can't wait to see you all again!! Please come check us out in the summer we're a lot of fun then too!! God bless you and your family! God bless America and the World! All your new friends here at the beach! FloridasBestBeach!!

I didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We are absolutely thrilled! Best 3 weeks in January ever! We've been to Indian Rocks Beach many times, but this was the first time we rented this home. This home is magnificent & clean! Looks ordinary when you pull in the driveway, then when you enter – Pow! It's a completely gorgeous place! It got better and better as we lived there. Loved the full water views from just about everywhere in the home. Truly open concept - feels airy and very comfortable. Everything was top notch.

They have thought of everything from really nice sheets and towels to the coffee bean grinder and garlic press, you have everything you need. The online photos do not do it justice. It is a gem. Beautiful cabinetry and decorating details, true craftsmen built this home! You can see the water from everywhere. We found it so very peaceful & relaxing. Be careful as you stare out onto the water, you may end up taking an unscheduled nap (like Frank did quite often) as you drift away on the leather sofa I wanted to take home!

There's a big wine fridge too! The outdoor patio is where we spent most of our time. My husband fished off the dock and we enjoyed grilling and dining outside. (There’s a great fresh produce store right in town you must visit, owners are Tammy & Joe, very nice and they make great sandwiches there too! – it’s called Beachside Fresh Market) Walking to the beach for sunset became a pleasant new habit for us, I miss them already.

Oh, my husband wants me to mention that great TV in the living room! LOL! Everything was beyond what we hoped for. Our compliments to Brenda and the management team, we called twice, once when we couldn't figure out the TV remote and once a light bulb went out in our guest bathroom and both times someone was there in about 20 mins. to help us!

Walking to the beach for sunset became a pleasant new habit for us, I miss them already.

I want to mention, they really should update the outdoor pictures because the landscaping and palm trees by the patio are gorgeous and the pictures don't show any of that beautiful landscaping. I truly did not want to go back home! (but my husband made me!) We will be renting this home again and telling all of our friends about our new home away from home!! With our gratitude and appreciation, Eleanor & Frank, (Wisconsin)

Owner's Response: Ellie, you are so funny! I am sorry Frank made you go home!! (haha!) We would have loved for you to stay! We had no idea you liked the reclining leather sofa so much! Nor did we know the reason Frank always seemed so energetic was because of all of those "unscheduled naps!!!" LOL! You were both a pleasure and we are truly going to miss you both. We will also miss your spontaneous emailed pictures of Frank's fresh caught fish & his floating hat!! haha!, the nice boats, the great sunsets and the many Egrets you befriended! Thank you again for the delicious cheese we truly enjoyed every bite! It was very kind of you to bring it for us. Thank you!, Big Hugs! Please hurry back!! :-) Also thank you for taking time to write such a nice & funny review for us! Looks like it must have been one of the first things you did when you got back home! Thank you we appreciate your doing that for us. Many folks say they will...but so often, once you get home from vacation - it's back to the normal day to day living/working and it's not easy to make time to do it, so we understand, and we sincerely appreciate your taking your time to do this for us so quickly upon your return home! Please please hurry back!! Sincerely, All of your new friends here in Indian Rocks Beach!! Whooo hoo!!

Way nicer than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a beautiful place! It was even nicer than the pictures! We had a wonderful time! There we 6 of us and there was plenty of room and didn't feel crowded. LOVE the master bathroom shower! Really loved how clean the place was and all the neat little amenities like the plush towels (including beach towels), NICE Tommy Bahama beach chairs and an awesome big stainless grill which we used a lot! It was great to be right on the water - saw DOLPHIN 3 times during our stay! Cool beach bikes too! We will be back same time next year! Hopefully, we will have more time to use the kayak which was awesome! Thank you to everyone involved in keeping such a nice place. We appreciate ALL of your efforts. Your concern for our comfort was evident. This was our most memorable vacation here in Florida yet! Thank you Thank you! :-)

Owner's Response: Thank You!:-) We are so happy to know we exceeded your expectations! It was so kind of you to take the time to write your review! THANK YOU! We know folks really need to stretch their vacation dollars these days, so we work very diligently to provide you with everything you need to have a fun filled, relaxing, comfortable time here at the beach! The extra amenities available are completely complimentary. We have been told by many of our guest that these fun extras helped make vacation time more fun and affordable. We also appreciate your mentioning you didn't think you would use the kayak, yet , your kayak experience ended up being one of your families FAVORITE THINGS!! (Isn't that cool! - we actually hear that a lot!) We work hard to keep the cottage as perfect and clean as we would except for our own Moms, Dads and families! It give us great joy to know we helped to make this your "most memorable vacation here in Florida yet!” We look forward to seeing you next year! We also appreciate any thoughts or ideas you have about making the water front cottage experience even better. It’s thanks to many of our guest’s suggestions that we now have many of the fine ‘home comforts’ guest have come to enjoy! Ie.) Love the coffee grinder! Thanks to Sandra & Jimmy’s recommendation ;-) Thank you again for sharing your vacation with us and your kind review! :-)
