Originally known as Indian Rocks South Shore, this quiet beach town is one of the oldest and smallest beach communities with the longest name. It was named Indian Rocks Beach, South Shore because the tiny community wanted a separate identity from the City of Indian Rocks Beach. The Town averages only a block in width between the Gulf of Mexico and by an area known as The Narrows.

It was originally an Indian campsite and got its name from the large red rocks found along its shoreline. Its first "settlers" were a pair of Robinson Crusoe-Type brothers named Cochran. In 1883 four Cedar Key speculators sailing to St. Petersburg, stopped to explore the Island. They were fascinated by the Island's possibilities for future development and bought it from the Cochran Brothers for a nominal sum. It is said the brothers bartered their Island "for little more than a string of beads and $25.00, figuratively speaking, like the Indians of Manhattan". The region soon became a popular residential and vacation area for many prominent Tampans such as the McKay family. (Tampa Tribune)

Until a wooden turn bridge was built in 1916, a ferryboat transported pedestrians to the Island, and a barge carried horses, buggies and a few automobiles to the summer resort. In 1905 the Railroad ran a spur line from the mainland to the beach and a hotel was built, adding to the Island's popularity. The railroad spur was abandoned later, but the community continued to grow especially during the Post-World War II building boom. Eventually in 1973 the name was officially changed to the more manageable Indian Shores. Presently the town's residential quality and its assortment of shops and restaurants help visitors feel right at home and is popular from snowbirds to seabirds. Favorite local spots are the eccentric Indian Shores Coffee Company and the popular Salt Rock Grill.

Very nice and relaxing!


The property was very clean and updated with nice amenities. There were beach chairs and umbrellas, a fire pit, patio tables and chairs with gas grills. Laundry on-site with a large ice maker for coolers. We had everything we needed and more so we never had to ask for a thing. The beach was very nice here. If we decide to vacation in this area again this is most definitely where we will stay.

Great Weekend


We had a wonderful time at Bungalow Beach Place. We stayed here before it was renovated. The property looks amazing! What a change! We will definitely be back.

Great experience!


We loved our stay! Fantastic location, great hosts with quick response to questions, and wonderful extras to make the experience even nicer – bikes, kayaks, chairs, umbrella, and fire pit!!!

March 2019 - Amazing oceanfront condo. Perfect for a couple of two. Very clean! Would definitely stay again! Danielle F

February 2019 - An amazing place! The property is very well done inside and out and very well kept. Beautiful view of the Gulf and sunsets. Wendy E

January 2019 - We love the atmosphere of this place. We have made many friends from around the US and Canada. Hopefully the prices won't keep going up up up. There are many who know longer stay here for that very reason. Hopefully that won't also have to be us! Susan S

January 2019 - Beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained! We were very comfortable and thrilled to grab that cup of coffee in the mornings and wander right out onto the beach. It wasn't necessary to waste our beach time searching for restaurants as we had all of the amenities we needed to fix our own light meals. Jim T

December 2018 - This was a beautiful oceanfront complex and the condo was nicely decorated and very clean. Unfortunately for us the weather was cool and rainy but there are plenty of things provided by the owners such as bikes, paddle boards and a fire pit that can be used during nicer weather. It is also located near many good restaurants. We will definitely stay here again. Lisa W

December 2018 - We had a great stay! Great location right in the beach. Everything was clean and tidy. Will return ASAP! Chloe P

November 2018 - This property was immaculate and nicely decorated. The Beach and Beach view is beautiful. Francis L

October 2018 - It was love at first sight. Everything was perfectly clean, comfortable and the absolute most beautiful location. Nothing at all to complain about. We walked straight out of the #1 bungalow and straight onto the beach. We came to relax and basically do nothing else and that’s exactly what we got to do. We were leaving on October 10 as hurricane Michael was churning off the coast and headed north and our flight to Atlanta was delayed early on and the staff was kind enough to let us stay past check out. The ladies that clean after your stay were incredibly helpful in getting that approved for us. A great relaxing time was definitely had, thank you. Ann H

September 2018 - We came here to get away and unplug! It was exactly what we wanted! Not very many people on the beach an relaxing! The bungalow had everything that we needed for our stay! Very clean! Davis S

July 2018 - This is a very clean property, wonderfully located within walking distance to just about anything you need! We stayed in a lower level condo that was just steps from the beach! Beach chairs, fire pit, umbrellas, outdoor coolers and kayaks were available for our use during our stay. This was our first vacation with our 3 year old son and the gulf water was perfectly calm and the beach was beautiful and clean for his first time! He loved it and keeps asking to go back! We loved this property and the travel company made sure we had all the information on the area attractions, bars, restaurants and shops that we needed! We can not wait to book our next trip to this property!

June 2018 - Such a Great Stay ...so clean , cute ...home away from home with a warm feeling !!! Our 4 days was way to short ...we will be back.

June 2018 - This was the perfect place for a quick vacation! Not too big, not too small! It was well cleaned and right on the beach. We also loved all the extras they kept around the property. We grilled, had a fire on the beach, kayaked and paddle boarded... all because of the items they supplied. Would definitely come back!

June 2018 - This was a perfect location for us to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We wanted a nice quite getaway and this fit the bill. We took advantage of your favorite restaurant list you supplied and had some incredible dining experiences. The accommodations were really good. The unit was clean and well kept. The information you provided about the area was invaluable. We look forward to visiting again in the future. The only down side was the queen size bed. Not very comfortable. Other than that, everything was great!!

May 2018 - This place is just perfect!! Exactly what we were looking for. The property is immaculate, with any amenity you can think of. We took the kids out on the kayak and paddle board for a relaxing float on the calm waters of the gulf, and used the bikes to ride to coffee shop and a really fun bar/restaurant. We also enjoyed making s’mores by the fire pit and grilling on the patio! The laundry facitlities are very nice as well! We would highly recommend this lovely place! It’s something out of a Pottery Barn catalog.

April 2018 - We loved our stay here! The condo was very clean and comfortable. It really is on the beach - you're not walking for blocks to get there, just a few steps as shown in the photos. They provided lounge chairs and umbrellas on-site as well as kayaks. There are plenty of outdoor dining tables for all of the 8 units plus nice grills. We were able to walk to several restaurants and had a short Uber ride to others down the strip (restaurants have pretty limited parking and Uber was cheap). I loved that most of the condos in this area had a low # of floors - it made the beach much less crowded than Clearwater Beach or St. Pete's Beach. I would stay again!

April 2018 - The location is idyllic and the accommodations perfect for a couple. Friendly staff, immediate access to the beach, use of tables, chairs, fire pit, etc., all made for a wonderful beach stay. Nice sized kitchen along with comfortable bedroom and living room.

March 2018 - We really had a great experience. We arrived 4 hrs before the lock would allow the door to open. The owners saw us looking around and came by and introduced themselves and let us in early. They made sure we understood where everything was and to where they would be should we need anything. The beach is literally right out the door. Not in a crowded area. The property has kayaks, bikes, new grilles, laundry at no cost, ice and plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas included. Our unit, which they are all similar, had a very comfortable bed, nice large TVs in bedroom and living room, beach themed decor, clean full bathroom, nice small kitchen with granite tops and a pullout couch as well. This was exactly what we were looking for got our stress free beach getaway. I would definitely recommend and if we go back to Tampa, I would certainly stay at beach bungalows again. Great place!

February 2018 - My husband and I stayed in Feb 2018. The unit was clean and ready for us. The bed was comfortable. It is a small unit , perfect for a couple and we spent most of our time outside on the beach. There were beach chairs and umbrellas for us to use. An outside cooler and free ice. I would definitely recommend this property.

January 2018 - We will be back!!!
