Amazing views, clean and well stocked home. Love the sunsets from the porch. The host communicated quickly for any questions we had. Location was near several restaurants and loved the amenities at the home. Comfortable pillows and beds.
The house was amazing. Scott was awesome with any issues we had. The house was clean and had towels and beach towels and bath items as well. The house was very spacious and perfectly sits right on the beach so we could watch the sunset over the ocean every night. Well worth the money spent and we can’t wait to come back.
Y’ALL. If you’re questioning whether it’s worth to book this home, stop with the doubts and trust me on this, you will not go wrong with this choice. First and foremost, the house and the view are absolutely amazing. It was perfect for my husband and two toddler boys. It was clean and the upstairs was a bit warm, but bearable with the portable AC units and ceiling fans. It has all the accessories you may need. Some of it was a little beaten up like the beach umbrellas, but we just bought a new one and left it there for the next guests. The location is in a small and quaint beach town with a ton of local restaurants nearby the house. With the house far away from hotels and large condominiums, the beach wasn’t very busy and super quiet. I know, I know. I sound like I’m blowing smoke up your you-know-what, but sweet Jesus take the wheel, we had one of the best family vacations EVER. Most of the time, when it’s too good to be true, it probably is.. not this time. Every penny spent was completely worth it. Thank you again Scott and Mary! We can’t wait to come back!!
We had a great time here! It was truly a relaxing experience. The property was exactly as described and the perfect location right on the beach. We spent every day out on the water. Grocery store, restaurants, markets were all close by and some within walking distance. The sunsets are incredible and even better being able to enjoy them right off the balcony! We did have an issue with the upstairs A/C not working but Scott fixed it right away. If you want a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable vacation, this is a perfect place!
Simple home, but more than adequate. The location was excellent. We enjoyed the semi-private beach that was literally just outside…so convenient. Scott was quick to respond to any questions or issues (did not have any, really). It was a great week. Highly recommend.
Loved being able to walk out to the beach and having everything accessible to us! The sunsets are amazing and the house was great!
This property was amazing and definitely will be on our “return to” list. The positioning near the beach, amazing view and the overall layout was incredible. The house was complete with all that you needed, near all the eateries, and provided for whatever you needed for R & R. The only downside was it had some stairs to manage but totally acceptable as a trade-off. We got caught up with dealing with the Covid-19 thing and because we had to leave early due to possibly the airlines closing down was the ONLY negative about this trip. Hopefully in the future that will be a thing of the past, so book this place and be assured of the time of your life for you and/or family.
If you are looking for picture-perfect sunsets every night, this place is for you! The house is immaculate, tastefully decorated, and has everything you need for a beachfront vacation. We were there for the entire month of February and felt quite at home. Scott was very responsive to any questions we had, and there were lots of little touches that were appreciated (good quality shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, etc, a bottle of wine, plenty of beach amenities, etc). We spent all of our time either on the beach or the ocean-front deck. The master bedroom sliders were kept open a crack so we could hear the waves crash all night (really miss that!). Convenient to shopping and attractions, but really…. the beach is it. Thanks for a lovely stay. We highly recommend this property and hosts.
A beautiful place to stay right on the Gulf. It was just what my family was looking for. A relaxing place away from all the tourists, but close enough to visit the many attractions the area has to offer. We loved that there were sand chairs and towels for our use along with sand toys for my granddaughter.
Amazing beach home. Right on beach. Lovely area. Beautiful sunsets. Easy check in. Hospitable hosts. Went out of way to accommodate. Close proximity to everything. Quiet, comfortable, relaxing. It is truly a gem.
Beautiful sunsets and amazing location! Would definitely stay there again!
Wonderful property with a fabulous view of the sunsets. Perfect location between Clearwater and John’s Pass. It was nice to walk to restaurants and stores on the Main Street. We will be back!
Every detail was thought of to make our vacation feel just like home. What more could we ask for? Not 1 thing. This home is a jewel and do not hesitate to book your stay. We’re already booked again.
The owners Scott and Mary are wonderful and present to let you know they will tend to your stay should you have questions or needs. The neighbors also vacation and it’s a happy and vibrant vibe all down the beach.
Would not hesitate for a second renting this property again! The beautiful home was spotless clean and very well equipped! The property owners have thought of everything to make their guests extra comfortable during their vacation. Being right on the Gulf was the highlight; the sunsets were simply amazing! Indian shores has it all, most within walking distance! Overall, perfect getaway! Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your amazing home with us!
This property is stunning and the perfect place for a quiet getaway. We stayed in early December and enjoyed long beach walks, bonfires and access to quaint restaurants within walking distance. Scott made checking in and access to the property super easy. We loved our visit and look forward to visiting again.
Gorgeous sunsets are viewed from a balcony that is equipped with good condition plastic chairs with comfy seat cushions. The large kitchen and dining area were well stocked and made eating in easy. The beds and rooms are comfortable, and the garage is stocked with everything you might want for the beach. Everything is clean, well organized and in good condition. I also really liked the keyless entry system. There is a fire pit surrounded by Adirondack style chairs out front on the beach, and we were able to roast marshmellows there one night. Another night we stayed in and watched a movie on the comfy couch.
Great place for a family beach vacation.
This is a lovely condo on the beach. It has everything you need for a girls getaway or for a family. The beach is literally right outside your door and extends quite far in each direction.
We used the fire pit and extra blankets as it was chilly when we were there. We still took advantage of the views and amenities. We comfortably fit 6 of us with our problems.
It’s a great spot!
Clean, beautiful, excellent location, perfect amenities, well supplied, owners were extremely nice & helpful!
We enjoyed our stay. It was easy process for checking in and out.
Scott was very responsive even before booking their home.
The check in process was explained in very good detail and was easy to execute. It was excellent to have a gated opening so we felt very safe.
- – Wonderful view and the first house next to the beach
- – Neighbors were so delightful
- – The beds were amazing. My husband said that is the best he has slept in a long time
- – We had all the linens, soap, towels, utensils that we needed
- – Plenty of room for the five of us
- – The water was very calm and the sand white. There were a lot of pelicans that chose to settle right in front of us by the water, but they did not bother us at all
- – Beach tools, chairs, etc. was sufficient
- – We love to cook so the pots/pans were a little dated. Ended up buying a nonstick pan to do most of our cooking.
- – Be prepared for a lot of stairs. The hardest part is getting from the garage to the bedrooms with heavy bags, but this would not detour me from staying here again.
- – We love to shell and there are not many at this location. We took a day trip to Shell Island which was a pleasant excursion.
- Overall, I would highly recommend this property. We travel every year to western Florida and rent properties, so you will not be disappointed here.
Owner’s Response: Thank you for the detailed review, Christina! I’m glad your overall experience was pleasant. My wife agrees that some of the kitchen equipment needs updating and now she wants to do more shopping! lol Consider booking with us direct for you next visit and save.
Cheers, Scott & Mary
We had a great stay at Scott’s place. It’s right on a quiet beach with so many games and activities to keep the whole family happy. We’d definitely come back!
I would highly recommend renting this home. Scott was a wonderful host and my family and I had a great time!
The beach was quiet and beautiful. The location was perfect! Right on the sand. The house was clean and comfortable. The owners provided very thoughtful touches, like a bottle of wine, beach toys and fishing gear, and this was a surprise- color safe shampoo. We loved our stay!

What a fabulous house! The location could not have been better. We loved everything. The beach is beautiful, clean – very quiet. Very relaxing . Sunsets are Spectacular! We would love to come back.
My family and I had an amazing time here. From the time we booked the house everything went smoothly. The house and the location exceeded our expectations. We loved every second of it. Everything we needed was readily available, which was amazing. Wish we could have stayed longer, we hope to come back.
This beach house was amazing! A large balcony directly overlooking the water, the provided beach gear is stored only 20 ft away from the sand dune walkway, and the home interior is fantastic. There are two ice-cream shops within walking distance and plenty of independent restaurants close by, with more traditional franchises 10-20 minutes inland. While there were amenities for babies/small children such a high chair and pack-n-play, the decor is definitely not toddler friendly. You may need to do your own child-proofing and really stay on top of your little ones. The provided TV entertainment options weren’t great (satellite TV in the living room, a disc player one bedroom). We brought a game console and a Fire TV Stick and the provided WiFi was perfectly suitable for streaming. Of course, the point of a beach house is to go to the beach and this location definitely delivered on that!
Thank you for a wonderful vacation. We had so much fun and it was so nice to have everything we could need already here! We tried Salt Rock Grill and the food was delicious. Haze Ice Cream had so many delicious flavors and Lulu’s is within walking distance (must try blueberry pie ice cream). We hope to be back again!
Thank you for sharing your home, we had a lovely vacation. This vacation home is lovely. The property has the perfect view to the nightly show! It is peaceful and oh so quiet. A wonderful spot to rejuvenate and restore the senses. I hope to runaway to this paradise again soon!
My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The views and sunsets from the living room and master bedroom are amazing. The house is stocked with everything you’ll need, even great beach toys for the kids and games for those rainy days. It’s located in a great area with lots of good restaurants close by. Scott and Mary were very responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. We’ll definitely keep this place in mind for future vacations!
This is an incredible property located on a quiet stretch of pristine beach. Most days it almost feels like you have the beach to yourself. Scott was an amazing host and was very responsive to my family’s requests for information before, during and after our reservation. The property is well appointed with a multitude of beach toys and kitchen amenities. Most everything you need is there. They even provided enough shampoo, conditioner, napkins, and toilet paper for the 13 days we were there! Eat at Original Pizza, Guppy’s and the Kooky Coconut while you’re there.
Our family enjoyed our 2 week vacation to Indian Shores. This is the second year we’ve been here for a summer beach trip and it was just as fabulous this year as it was last. We enjoyed the remnants of hurricane Barry during our first week. Our 3 and 4 year old daughters were able to learn how to body board because of how choppy the ocean was. Captian Nemo’s Pirate Ship adventure was a fun filled excursion we enjoyed again this year. Like last year we enjoyed eating twice at the best pizza place ever – Original Pizza and incredible ice cream at Haze. Highly recommend Guppies – ate there 3 times and ordered something different each time and all of it was phenomenal. Many wonderful memories made here. Hope to return soon.
Great beach house, came equipped with everything a family would need to enjoy the sand and waves. There were fireworks going off in every direction from the large balcony!
Thank you for an amazing house and location. There were fireworks going off in every direction! We had a beautiful time.
This house was amazing! The house is close to the beach, the decks offer gorgeous views, and the house was very clean and comfortable. The skylights added lovely light in all of the bedrooms. We cooked most meals at home and found the kitchen well stocked with basic pots/pans/utensils/etc. We loved every restaurant we tried. You must try Haze ice cream down the block! If you have kids, we would also recommend the aquarium in Clearwater as well as Captain Memo’s pirate cruise. Our kids are 5 and 9 and we all had a blast. Excellent vacation and Scott’s house was a lovely place to call home for the week. Thanks Scott!
Spectacular! Our family had a wonderful vacation. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening cards on the balcony. We appreciated the easy access to the beach and swam every day. Sunsets were magnificent! New guests should try Haze Ice Cream, Lighthouse Donuts, and all of the local restaurants.
Wonderful trip! Beautiful house! Thank you for sharing it. The toys were fantastic for the grandchildren. Wonderful house! Everything was exactly as described. Location was fabulous, house was very clean and comfortable! The toys for the beach were Greatly appropriated! They were perfect for the grandchildren! I would Highly recommend this house and if we return, I would definitely stay again! Scott is definitely a “super host”!!
Had a fun-filled, family relaxing time! And your home is lovely. Thank you for sharing it with travelers. Very nice. Clean and all amenities as expected. Private beach area without a lot of people.
This is an absolutely beautiful property in a stunning location. The hosts were helpful and communication was excellent. The house is well appointed with everything you need. Be aware if traveling with small children, like us, there are beautiful glass tables with rather sharp edges so take care. The views are breathtaking and the perfect beach is always quiet. Absolutely amazing for relaxing and spending quality family time together – we’d had plans for various outings but actually ended up wanting to spend a lot of time at the beach and the house, as it was so lovely. A true gem and a wonderful find. We can’t fault it.
What a fantastic relaxing time we had here. The view is beautiful. Time spent on the beach was awesome. Loved this!!
Great location and a beautiful clean home.
One of the best settings we have ever been to on the Florida coast. The house was superb! Up to date, clean, and all the amenities you could ask for. The views from the porch are absolutely gorgeous. Scott is a great host who is quick to respond to any questions. Scott, Thanks for being a great host. We absolutely loved our time. The house was perfect, providing everything we needed and the views of the beach, water and sunsets were absolutely gorgeous!
We had an amazing stay! Beach was amazing, beautiful views, house was perfect. Great memories made. Thank you for making our stay perfect!
Scott’s home is Amazing!! He is wonderful to work with, had a bottle of wine to welcome us, and had every beach chair, hammock, beach toys, boogie boards we would ever need for the week! The kitchen was wonderful and we all slept great! The views from the balcony are perfect. We had coffee every morning and watched the sunset every night. We recommend donuts or bagels from “The Lighthouse Donuts” and we drove up to Marina Cantina in Clearwater for Mexican one night- amazing meal! This home is easy to get to, lots of restaurants if you want, we enjoyed cooking almost every night! It was a wonderful week in every way!
Our mother / daughter trip was a DREAM because of this lovely oasis. Thank you for your hospitality. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you!
We had an amazing week in your beautiful home – spectacular views of the sunset and we are leaving well rested. Thank you for your hospitality!
