Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida

My husband and I stayed for about a month. Rox and Brian were so accommodating and made us and our two dogs feel right at home. The cottage was just perfect! It was clean and up-to-date and had everything we needed and then some! The location was ideal. We walked to the beach every day and walked to several of the restaurants. Our favorites were Guppy's and Cafe de paris. We hope to stay here again sometime and would not hesitate to recommend this beach cottage to anyone looking to stay in the area. Thanks again for your hospitality! Amanda

Want to relax at a reasonable price? Cozy Cottage is the place for you. This well equipped little upstairs apartment has all that a couple needs for a Florida vacation along the Gulf coast. Just a short drive from St. Pete/Clearwater airport, the unit is well equipped with anything one might need for a beach vacation. I can't think of anything the owners have forgotten. It's located just two blocks from the beach in a quiet little neighborhood in Indian Rocks. Beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, kayak, frosted mugs in the freezer... What else could you ask for? We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Great Cottage - better then a hotel
December 13, 2012
We recently took our time and drove from Chicago to Indian Rocks Beach and stayed at the Cozy Cottage. It was a wonderful relaxing vacation. Indian Rocks Beach and the Cozy Cottage were perfectly located to allow us to do various day trips to places we wanted to explore. Clearwater is just a little up the road - St Petersburg just a little down the road and Tampa just a short ride to the east. We found some incredible restaurants nearby and the all day pass on the Jolly Trolley was a wonderful alternative to driving to explore the area. Many of the restuarants have incredible early bird deals (love Salt Rock Grill and Crabby Bills) and very entertaining happy hours. The cottage was impeccible - better then home and so incredibly clean. It is decorated very tastefully - with a lot of thought put into it by the owners to provide everything you would need during your stay. The owners of the cottage have a group of cottages right there - each with your own private yard area and then a common courtyard. They are great hosts - giving you your complete privacy and space - yet if you would like to socialize - very warm, charming and interesting people. We would definitely recommend this cottage and if you need more space - I was able to see the interiors of the other cottages and was VERY impressed with how they looked - like a makeover or something off of HGTV - all beautifully decorated and BEAUTIFUL. After peeking in one of them - I could not wait to get home and plan the remodeling of my kitchen (husband is thrilled). Great trip - Great lodging - Great people!

We had originally booked the Cozy Cottage as we were going to take our dog but ended up leaving him home. However, we stayed at Sunrise Cottage on the same property with same landlords it was AWESOME, LOVED IT AND ARE GOING BACK AGAIN NEXT YEAR. Had the opportunity to see the Cottage Cottager and it is absolutely beautiful. Everything about these properties is wonderful, expecially the landlords, the 3-5 minute walk to the beach. All I can say is that we had an awesome experience and felt so at home it was really hard to leave. The Sunrise Cottage, Sunset Cottage and Cozy Cottage are all wonderful places to stay and I would highly recommend them.
Fantastic and Affordable

You can not find a nicer couple to rent from or a nicer condo for that matter. The description is dead on and it was even better than we expected. Right off Gulf Blvd gave privacy but also within walking distance to the beach. Absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back!!!
BEST VACATION EVER

Brian and Rox were wonderful. If you want to have a real vacation and feel like a local, this is the place. You just need to show up as Brian and Rox have taken care of the rest for you. Every thing you need for a beach vacation is at your finger tips. You must stay here if you are visiting Indian Rocks Beach!
Owner Supplied Testimonials
"We loved the entire experience! Indian Rocks Beach is the perfect destination to just get away...we went to a lot of different beaches up and down the coast from Clearwater to St. Pete, and Indian Rocks Beach was our absolute favorite! Beautiful sand, warm, clear ocean, and gorgeous sunsets. I also loved the little eateries within IRB, all within walking distance! We tried a lot of the local quisine, and loved it. Some of the places we stopped in were Guppy's, Cuso's, the Thai resturant, PJs, Pinky's Ice Cream (the best in IRB), TJ's, Keegan's, and a bunch more. Also, using the PSTA trolley was a great option for us, so there was no need to rent a car. I would highly recommend staying in Indian Rocks Beach. It was an absolute pleasure!"

We had such a great vacation! The cottage is well maintained,and the decor is beautiful,very fitting of the area! We were comfortable from the moment you showed us around,and felt at home instantly.
Being so close to the gulf was a plus,with the gulf breeze amazing! We would chose to stay at our home away from home again,and again!
Thanks again,and keep us up to date!

Brian & Rox,
We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful week. Your cottage was the perfect place to come on our honeymoon. We looked at all sorts of options for our stay in Florida from condos to hotels, and we are so glad we found your rental. For others looking at staying here, its location is perfect. It took us about three minutes to walk from the house to having our feet in the water. At first when we were looking for a place to stay, we wanted something right on the beach, but this is actually better. We were away from the noise of the main street and other tourists, and felt like we had a more quiet and relaxing getaway because of it, yet still felt like we were right on the beach.
Everything about the rental was even better than we expected. It was very clean, new, and comfortable with everything we needed for our stay from laundry soap to beach towels, chairs, and coolers. The cottage is also in a great neighborhood with friendly neighbors, and it's nice to be so close to the inter-coastal waterway as well so we could see dolphins and different varieties of birds.
Brian and Rox, you were awesome hosts! We felt so comfortable and welcome here. You were so helpful and we appreciate everything you did for us to make this such a wonderful and memorable vacation. We definitely recommend this to anyone looking for perfect accomodations for a great vacation!
Brian and Kira - Cedar City, Utah (April 2007)
We really enjoyed our stay. A quiet setting, conveniently located, in short, a perfect get away! The accommodations are very nice inside and out. The kitchen had everything we needed. Everything was clean and well arranged. Our maintenance issue (the shower) was promptly dealt with. Frankly I didn't think it would be fixed without tearing a wall or two apart! We were so pleased to find it running at full capacity after a day of walking the beach and visiting a nearby nature preserve.
Ken & Caryn (April 2007)
"We spent a month with Brian and Rox when we rented their condo in Indian Rocks Beach. The condo is lovely, looks exactly like the pictures on their website so we had no unpleasant surprises. It was very clean and neat and had everything we needed. The sunsets on the beach were breathtaking and the food at the wide selection of restaurants close by was absolutely fantastic. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying there to our family and friends. Brian & Rox were great hosts!"
