Description of the Indian Shores vacation townhouse rental
It's the small thoughts and touches that make the difference to your vacation. It's the returning guests, now friends, who make renting our beach house a pleasure.
When you return home and slip into bed, do you think 'finally a good night's rest'? When you leave our king size memory foam mattress behind, you will be thinking, 'when can we go back'! This two bedroom townhouse just steps from the beach at Indian Shores is an oasis of calm on an already laid back beach. It has been totally updated, the bathrooms are modernized, kitchen is well equipped, furnishings are more like at home. No tired or estate sale items. Plenty of amusement with the multi channel cable service on our large flatscreen tv and dvd player and ipod docking station in the living room. Both bedrooms also have tv, and some desk space in the second bedroom if you really have to work on vacation. Free wifi access is available for our guests. Nothing is worse than trailing laundry to a coin operated machine onsite, so for your convenience you have a washer dryer in the unit. Private garaging for your car and space for another outside the condo. The kitchen has refrigerator with icemaker, microwave, range, dishwasher, waste disposal and lots of useful appliances including coffeemaker and electric kettle for tea drinkers! There's a blender/slowcooker/food processor and more for the cook. The Master bedroom has a large walk in closet and en suite bathroom. On that floor also is a second full size bath for the queen bedroom. The living room level has a spacious sitting room and dining area, with screened porch at the rear of the house, overlooking wooded mangrove preserve. On this level is the guest half bathroom, along with the fully fitted and modern kitchen, and washer/dryer utility area. We have a small supply of books and some dvds and games. Throughout the house is a continuous theme of calm green interior with English country garden floral touches. Its more like a country cottage than a beach rental. The garage houses a useful beach cart for transporting your chairs/shade/towels and cooler over to the sands. The complex itself is small and very friendly, there are several owner occupiers who are very helpful and love meeting my new guests. A large pool on the side of the intracoastal is a great place to relax, or if you like to fish, there is a fishing pier. I just like to take my morning tea down there and watch the passing boats/dolphins/marine birds. A barbeque is provided on the pooldeck area for guests to enjoy. There is a large shady area too, overlooking the water to relax, read a book or have lunch outdoors.
The beach trolley is a marvellous amenity if guests do not wish to drive to the variety of restaurants, great and small within a mile of the house. The trolley stops right by the condo. On site is a very useful convenience store, run by our friends Bob and Kiran for many years now and they are happy to order in foreign newspapers for our international guests, with notice.
For the comfort of all our guests, we do not allow smoking on the balcony/porch area or in the unit. Not everyone is pet friendly and have animal allergies, and so we do not allow pets of any kind/size either.
This is a perfect rental for one or two couples looking for a more upscale beach vacation.

Area Info
Indian Rocks Beach is quaintly reminiscent of the old laid back days of beach communities. It has a thriving village center with a variety of restaurants, bars, a post office, museum, pharmacy, some hotels and shops, it's a hub of activity after sundown. Several of the food and bar venues have live music nightly. Indian Rocks has a marina and direct access to the mainland and SR688 via a bridge in the center.
Indian Shores is simply a continuation of the beach but is made up mainly of vacation rental condominiums, small hotels, and private homes. There are a few shops and bars and a very well established fine dining restaurant all of which are pretty close to our townhouse. The city recently completed a major beautification program that buried overhead cables, refinished the roadway and laid walking and bike trails both sides of the street for visitors and residents. The land is pretty narrow from Gulf to Bay, so you are never very far from water. Access to the main arterial routes and Tampa International are via the Park Blvd bridge which is at the southern end of Indian Shores.
Farther afield from the townhouse are so many interesting places to visit. For sports enthusiasts we have professional sports close by, for those who like parimutuals, we have greyhound racing and horseracing venues. Golfers/Fishermen/boaters and other sport participants will love our all year round amenities. Shoppers - we have so many malls close by and art lovers, we can give you world class galleries, including the world famous Dali Museum and Dale Chihuly's Glass collection in St Petersburg. We have orchestras, theaters and so much more than the beaches, but at the end of the day, its our beach and sunshine that most visitors come to stay.
