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

Amazing location, perfect condo


I was a little nervous booking this condo, as I had never been to the Indian Shores area. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a new favorite Florida destination! Also, I think we stumbled upon the very best condo on the beach! So clean, comfortable, and right on the beach with everything you could ever want for a perfect vacation. The condo itself was perfect. It was super clean and felt like a brand new place! The bed was really comfortable and everything worked as it should. Although it is a condo, in the technical sense, there are only a handful in the small complex. We never heard any neighbors and it seemed to be mostly families and older adults, so it was quiet even during the day. In addition to great lodging, the condo owners provided everything for a great getaway including a cooler, beach chairs, beach cruiser bikes, laundry machines, and even ice! We were really surprised at how many places we could just grab a bike and ride to. We pedaled to get coffee and breakfast at the Donut Experiment, we pedaled to dinner at Slice and Caddy’s, and several times for lunch and dinner at Aloha Hawaiian grill, which was our instant favorite and so close we could have walked. We didn’t have a bad meal anywhere! I would definitely stay here again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it! Thank you so much for our amazing Anniversary trip.

March 2019 - Loved staying here!! Beautiful property inside and out and is exactly as depicted in the pictures. We are already looking at dates to return. Natalie J

September 2018 - Overall was great with a few hiccups upon arrival...thanks to Joelle (awesome VR staff) our concerns were handled promptly and fairly! We loved the place, the view, and we cant wait to return here again! Hopefully no RED TIDE next time...but we did not let that dampen our visit! Thanks so much for an awesome vacation rental! Lynn R

August 2018 - These bungalows are small, clean, and tastefully done in a beach vibe. Quiet. Also, convenient parking right in front of the building. The quiet beach is beautiful, as are the grounds. Jennifer G

August 2018 - We just loved our condo on Indian Shores Beach! We had everything we needed and we were mere steps from the water. The condo was updated and impeccably clean. They had thought of everything you would need for a perfect beach vacation! We had a small problem and it was dealt with quickly and kindly. We will definitely rent from them again!! Gina S

July 2018 - This was our second time staying at the Bungalow Beach Place and we think it is an amazing place to stay! It is very clean, couple AND family friendly (we stayed kid-free the first time and knew we had to bring the kids the next time), affordable, and the location is just totally wonderful! It is the complete package that is really difficult to beat! Both times we stayed here, we enjoyed visiting with families in the neighboring units.... And the kids made fast friends too, which is just an added bonus. I am not typically a creature of habit when it comes to travel (I like to try different places even in those places to which we find ourselves returning), but this one qualifies as the true exception to that rule. We will be returning for sure (multiple times if we are so fortunate) and I would recommend this place/location to anyone and everyone asking and not asking too!:) Laura M

May 2018 - Bungalow Beach Place is a dream vacation spot! Just one day into our stay, we already have decided we will be back! It is a very tranquil oasis among the business of Florida beaches. Inside... newly renovated, cute design, extremely clean. Outside... patio/deck, private lawn area, private beach, bikes to borrow, kayaks to use, loungers and chairs to use on the beach, outdoor shower. We biked to coffee shop each morning (1 mile away) and small market (.2 miles away) using the wide bike AND walk lanes on each side of road. Would be great for couples getaway but also perfect for toddlers (tons of beach toys!) and teens (kayaks, bikes, paddle boards.) We travel a lot and found this place to be top notch. Highly, highly recommend!!! Katy D

May 2018 - We used this unit as a relaxing few days at the beach. It was very clean and up to date. The unit looked exactly like the pictures. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed. We used the grill outside to do some of our own cooking. The beach loungers and chairs we used daily. It was close to restaurants. Would definitely return. Holly B

March 2018 - We stayed at this property for a Spring Break getaway with our family (including our younger kids). What we were most wanting in a place was easy access to the beach, since our main goal was to relax in the sun, and this fit the bill perfectly. Our kids didn't even have to slip shoes on to go to the beach.....just walk down the balcony stairs and across the small lawn. We used the outdoor dining tables a few times. I would definitely consider another stay here if my travels take me to this area! Laura M

March 2018 - We enjoyed everything about this property...the beach, the bikes, the kayaks! We ate out at several places and enjoyed the Indian Shores community. The A/C could have been better. The temperatures in the unit seemed warm. Despite that (most time was spent outside) we had a wonderful time. E

February 2018 - We stayed in Unit 8, which is on the second floor
-- a corner unit, so there's extra light in the living room. It faces the beach, and has a sweet little balcony with a table and two chairs, perfect for morning coffee or late-afternoon drinks while watching the amazing sunsets. The unit itself was quiet, spotless and completely renovated. Acres of storage space for clothes and pantry goods. All the equipment worked perfectly, from the two flat-screen TVs to the WiFi. It looked just like the photos, too. I definitely recommend this place. Jim H

August 2017 - Bungalow Beach Place was the perfect vacation spot for my boyfriend and I. We loved the beach access and how it was more private than say Clearwater. Beautiful sunsets every night. The unit itself was put together nicely and was clean. Everything we would need was there for use. The grills outside were an added bonus because we do a lot of grilling at home, so it was nice to grill and have a beautiful view. This was our first vacation together in 7 years and the first day we both said this will be our vacation spot. We loved it so much that we ended up booking an extra night. We loved the atmosphere in the area. We will definitely be back! DeeAnna

July 2017 - We never imagined this treasure on the beach would be so wonderful! Our family loved the adorable condo with such nice updates and it was super clean! The kids loved being able to run to the beach and play on the nice lawn space with toys and roast marshmallows! We cannot wait to return. We visited the Clearwater Marine Aquarium nearby to visit Winter the Dolphin and found some great Cuban sandwiches right down the street at the Kooky Coconut! We will be back as soon as we can! Thank you for making this such a nice get away. R.Breeze

July 2017 - The property was well maintained and the rooms were nicely re-done and very clean. My wife and I were very happy with our stay. The only thing we didn't like is when we had to leave. I can't wait to return!

June 2017 - It was so close to the beach. Lots of great restaurants and things to do close by. The rental was spotless and beautifully decorated. Loved it.

June 2017 - We loved this place! We stayed in unit #8 which was tastefully decorated, quiet and had everything we needed. The unit was so close to the beach and felt like a private beach. We will definitely be back.

March 2017 - We loved our stay! It was a perfect, quiet, relaxing getaway! Right on the beautiful beach, spectacular sunsets, walking distance to some local places and a short ride to Clearwater Beach or St Pete Beach. The Bungalow was updated, clean and nicely decorated. We did not want to leave and will definitely be back!

December 2016 - Great Place with amazing views and great Secluded location but still close enough to Johns Pass and Clearwater!
