The home is prefect for families, with a Florida room overlooking the ocean sunsets

Lovely private home with ample parking, steps to the beach with well appointed rooms and plenty of beds. Our adult family had a great time here star gazing and playing board games at night. Perfect.

Perfect Beach Location and Private

By:
Trip Date:

We had a wonderful family vacation! The beach house is older but that added to the charm, and you can’t beat the location and privacy. A short walk out the back door and you’re on the beach. The view of the beach, ocean and sunsets were amazing. There was plenty of room for our family, the kitchen was very well stalked and beach toys/tubes/chairs/towels were all included. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home!


Perfect family home

We feel the property was as described. It was perfect for our sized family and range in children’s ages (aged 11-21) We love the area and the relaxed atmosphere of the house just made our stay very enjoyable.


Great

Great location. Had a great time with the family. Kids loved the beach.


Great escape

By:
Trip Date:

What a great escape for five college friends to regroup, renew and rejuvenate. The house is a great beach house with the genuine feel of a beach house. Having coffee on the beach was amazing. Met our needs in terms of being able to relax and reconnect. Thank you for this opportunity.


Absolutely what I was looking for, beautiful and relaxing!

There are not many beach homes left like this, directly on the beach and private. My family enjoyed it immensely. Just what we needed to relax a few days and clear the stress out. The weather was not very cooperative, but didn’t really matter. I hope we can make it back during the summer months sometime. The owners provided everything we needed in the way of beach towels, beach furniture, etc. Also plenty of kitchen wares if you want to cook, or if not there are a lot of really good restaurants up and down the street. Oh, and we really enjoyed daily visits from Charlie the resident Blue Heron. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who just wants to enjoy the laid back beach environment. It’s an older house and not real fancy like the condos all around, which made it perfect in my books. Thank you for the enjoyable stay!!


Spacious and perfect location!

My group of friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beach Bum! It was perfectly spacious for the 10 of us, and we LOVED being right on the beach and all of the toys/games included in the garage. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful house with us!


Wonderful!

Had just the best time! Wonderful large beach cottage w/plenty of bedrooms for 6 women. Great kitchen for cooking and love the outdoor shower. Highly recommend for larger groups of friends or family. Thanks Jeff and Gina for allowing me to drop off groceries and luggage early…beach was heaven!

February 2019 -Staying at Jeff and Gina's place was incredible! The place is right on the beach with direct access to the Gulf. The space is very open and bright and easily accommodates big groups (ie big common areas). Some of the features are a bit worn (doors jam, older kitchen features) but it all sort of goes with the beach house feel and we didn't mind at all! Also, Jeff and Gina are excellent hosts - check in and check out are incredibly easy and they strike a nice balance of checking in and providing local tips while not overwhelming you with emails during your vacation Would highly recommend to all and would definitely come back! Jon M

January 2019 - Super chill beach front cottage. We were provided with everything we could possibly need. Can’t wait to come back again! Michele R

November 2018 - This old house was full of charm and character. If you are looking for updated and modern, this is not the place for you. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The host do require you to access contracts outside of VRBO and you should be aware of upfront. Scott Z

October 2018 - My first impression was a bit of a letdown because I was on the street side of course and it wasn't what I was expecting. However, once I went inside and saw the remodeled and huge kitchen and then the fabulous Florida room across the entire beachside of the house I was in love. The yard with tons of chairs, shade trees and what was virtually a private beach was awesome. I would absolutely go here again. My entire family loved it as did I. Thanks very much Jeff and Gina.

September 2018 - We (a group of friends through work) take a yearly trip to St. Petersburg and rented this house for the trip this year. We loved everything about it. The location/beach access was phenomenal. The house easily accommodated our large group of 8. I would highly recommend this rental. Andrew U

June 2018 - This was certainly a great vacation choice. The property is good for a group our size (10). No doubt the house could use a little TLC but we just wanted a spot to chill and have easy access to the beach, so it fit the bill. Having a fully stocked kitchen was excellent, along with a washer and dryer. The sitting area in the back yard was excellentas well. I don't think there's many better beaches in Florida than here, so I would certainly consider this property again. Dalton B

June 2018 - My family had a wonderful time. Nivea V

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! Karen H

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! Linnzi W

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!
