Perfect for gathering loved ones to catch up on old memories and make new ones, this vintage home provides all the modern conveniences while preserving the classic charm of a simpler time. Tucked discreetly on the sands of Indian Shores, this treasure is just steps from the turquoise waters of the gulf amongst the natural flora of Florida's coast.

You'll find outdoor living at its best with a spacious backyard offering front row seats to the nightly sunsets that will take your breath away. Eating out takes on a whole new meaning at Beach Bum, where the whole gang can enjoy the smell of the barbeque and the refreshing sea breeze, until the catch of the day is served. Inside, a spacious sun room is a welcoming gathering space. Panoramic views of the gulf make it the perfect place to start the day as the sun's glow warms the sands. With ample seating and a large screen television, everyone can be entertained in this special space, where cool breezes drift in and laughter flows out.

Submit a Review for BeachBum House
May 2018 - We love this idealic locates home right on the beach in Indian Rocks. It is perfect for our casual girls weekend which is why we keep coming back year after year after year. Can’t wait another 365 days to get back to paradise!

April 2018 - Spent everyday of our 2 week stay on the beach so location was perfect! House was well supplied and clean. Maintenance gentleman was awesome came right over fixed the vacuum and left a gift of aloe for some of us who spent a little too much time in the sun on our first day! Lots of great food & drink places nearby so didn’t have to travel far if we didn’t feel like cooking. House itself could use some TLC. Painting inside and out would go a long, long way. Landscaping would also help make the nice shaded area out back more enjoyable. Loved our stay and will be back next year!

March 2018 - When we arrived, there were no beach chairs, many of the outdoor chairs were broken and the beach bikes did not work. Fortunately, TEemingRV responded to our concerns right away and delivered beach chairs and outdoor seating the next day. They even sent an excellent bike repair guy to fix the beach bikes. The house has wonderful artwork throughout and is in an awesome location in Indian Shores. The house is rather old and can use some updates in the bathrooms and kitchen but overall our trip was amazing. Beds are very comfortable and bedrooms are dark and cool with the shades drawn. We would definitely book this house again!

February 2018 - We have stayed at this property for years and love it every time! The location is simply unbeatable - open the door and you are on the beach! With 4 kids under the age of 10, this is a must. No lugging beach gear across a street or through a condo/hotel lobby, this house make a day/week/month at the beach so so easy. Lots of beach toys, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of beds (and a pack & play), plus a washer/dryer. Internet and tv are available, but we were too busy having fun, outside on the beach, to even think about technology. The kids were sad to leave, but we will be back again in June! Thanks so much for another memorable family vacation.

December 2017 - Great place, right on the sand. The beach is awesome and water very clear. House accomodates 10 very well and had everything avaliable to use including bicycles, kayaks, SUP board, grill. There are some restaurants and a small food mart nearby. Overall a very good experience.

November 2017 - The house is situated perfectly on the beach, and on the trolley line. 25 miles of beach to walk there were great extras provided.. beach bikes, kids beach toys, games... it was a wonderful time for our family... one of the best things was all the available parking... that was a great bonus that most do not have.

August 2017 - Beautiful place and scenery.

July 2017 - Perfect location. Great clean beach. Comfortable beds and clean fresh new linens and towels. We rarely used the inside shower we loved the outside shower so much. Kitchen is equipped with everything we needed and plenty of extras. Also loved the extra fridge in the garage and the extra large stove!!! Perfect for cooking breakfast for the whole family. We highly reccomed this beautiful home!!!!

May 2017 - If you are considering staying at this beach house, you should stop considering and book! This was a wonderful experience for my family and the house was perfect. The bedrooms are spacious with new comfortable bedding to rest on after that long day at the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed and the sunroom/living area was a delight to relax in.
Leaving the best until last.... The access to the beach! Open the back door and you are in paradise. We have found other locations in this area to be a little too far from the water (Long, long beaches!). This house is just a stones throw from the water making it a breeze if you have little ones. The back yard also hosts adequate seating areas and a lovely shower to rise off after playing in the sand.

We'll be staying at this charming beach house again soon without a doubt!

May 2017 - What a gem. Our backyard was a beautiful beach and the house was very clean. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs (one is reached by walking through another) with super comfortable beds and one bathroom with shower and tub. Downstairs is the kitchen and living room as well as the connecting door to the garage. In the garage there is a washer and dryer, sand toys, boogie boards, and adult size bicycles as well as another refrigerator and a half bath.

This isn't a sleek, modern condo. Keep in mind it is a retro structure that's seen some use. But it is clean, comfortable, and unique. We have an eleven year old, a seven year old, and a two year old and brought my mom as well. We were all sad to leave. I would rent this again in a heartbeat.


April 2017 - We stayed for the weekend and had an excellent time. Perfect weather and the property was great. the split system HVAC in each room was more than adequate to keep the rooms cool at night. 30 yard walk to what might as well be your stretch of private beach was amazing. House has a ton of beach accessories: paddle boats, paddle boards, bikes, etc. We took an Uber down to Johns pass (boardwalk) and it cost about 9 bucks. There are plenty of shops and restaurants to enjoy down there. We stocked up at Publix and enjoyed the Barbecue and high quality appliances including Jenn air stove and super quiet dishwasher. I will be staying in this house again no doubt about it. Thanks for the excellent weekend!

April 2017 - I have been staying at this house for years and have always enjoyed it. They recently redid all the furniture, bedding (even new mattresses) paint and new wall air units in the rooms upstairs (in place of window units). It looks great! The house is a great fit for families with kids or 2 families looking to share. Since it is an older house, the main living space is on the ground floor - making it easy for kids to play outside in the sand if you have to run inside to make lunch or grab something. Love this house! Big beautiful pine tree on the beach giving lots of shade, lots of areas to sit and enjoy the sun. Many restaurants in the area as well if you want to eat out. Clean kitchen, washer dryer downstairs, extra fridge in garage, bathroom downstairs, outdoor shower on side of house, plenty of parking.

April 2017 - Comfortable, cute home with unbeatable access to the beach. Walk right out the door to hit sand on your toes. No stairs, no lengthy walk. Well equipped. Comfortable beds. Nice decor. Unbeatable location! Will definitely be staying here again!!

April 2017 - This is a great place to stay. The location is very accessible and centrally located for the area. It was perfect for our small gathering for the weekend - we didn't have to bring anything extra as all the necessary amenities were provided. I would definitely stay at this place again in the future.
