The Florida region
South West Florida is the ideal place to enjoy leisure and pleasure in the great outdoors, it being one of the warmest areas of the United States. In the height of summer ocean breezes keep things cool while visitors enjoy swimming, sunning, shelling or playing a round of golf. Nature lovers are drawn here because of the area's close proximity to the Everglades National Park, the Big Cypress Swamp and numerous other wetland reserves, wildlife refuges and habitats.
Then, of course, there are the miles of beautiful beaches, washed by the warm Gulf waters and covered in a fascinating array of seashells. Winter is 'in season' in this part of the world, which stays warm while the more northerly states freeze. Little wonder that the Gulf Coast has become a magnet for visitors whom locals term 'snowbirds' migrating from the north to winter here.
Just a brief drive from Tampa airport, Indian Rocks Beach is a town and beach in Florida near Clearwater. It rests on a barrier island sandwiched in between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico.
Due to its warm, temperate weather and sandy beaches, Indian Rocks Beach is a popular tourist destination. Popular attractions in the area include the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the SunCoast Seabird Sanctuary and the Indian Rocks Area Historical Society Museum.
People come from all over the world to visit Indian Rocks Beach for the city's fine beaches and to watch the beautiful sunsets. The city has 27 beach access points along Gulf Boulevard.
The Gulf Coast is also a great base to enjoy the theme parks at Orlando, and is particularly close to Busch Gardens. Simply take the I-275 and them I-4 towards Orlando and you will be there in less than 90 minutes.

Bars and restaurants....
There are many varied types of restaurants within walking distance such as the famous Crabby Bills Seafood Place. JD's for breakfast, lunch or dinner and their piano bar in the evenings is fantastic.
The "Villa Gallace" Italian Restaurant is fabulous and a new addition "My Place" offers beautiful decor with inside or outside dining. Their patio bar is fun and friendly with live music every evening.
We have a coffee shop just accross the street - providing fresh donuts, bagels and sandwiches with their cappuccinos and lattes. Los Mexicanos serves, of course, Mexican fare with happy hour Margaritas and indoor or patio dining.
The Tapas Garden Restaurant also has indoor and patio dining providing a unique menu of full course meals or Tapas and wine. Crabby Bills has added a fabulous takeout sandwich shop next to their open air bar adjoining the original Crabby's restaurant. PJ's Oyster Bar on the corner is one of the local favourites and not to be missed.
A CVS beach drug store is close by for quick shopping for snacks, drinks, beach items etc and the larger supermarkets are just over the intracoastal bridge on the mainland. As we are located directly on Gulf Blvd. There is easy access to all beach shops and activities from Clearwater to St. Petersburg, either is just a short 10 - 15 minute drive. Tampa is about a half hour drive.

"Wonderful, relaxing experience"
We have just come back from this property and once again it meets the high standards that we have come to expect from Steve and Linda. There is a great mixture of privacy without feeling out of touch from the rest of the world. There is the usual attention to detail in the property without the feeling of clutter.
Thank you so much David, It was great to have you and your family as guests again in one of our homes, thanks for looking after it. Best wishes,
Linda and Steve

We really loved this condo. It is great to be right on the beach and have a walk along the sand every morning. We felt as if we had our own private beach!
What was also nice is that you can walk to shops and restaurants or get the Jolly Trolley to Clearwater, St John's Pass or other beaches. You hardly need a car.
The parking was quite secure as it is under the building. The condo is tastefully decorated. We will be back!
Many thanks for your kind words.
