The Deposit does not limit your liability for damage to the Deposit amount. If any damage or missing items result in repair or replacement costs exceeding the initial deposit amount, renter agrees to pay these additional sums and the additional amount will be charged to your credit card. If the Property is damaged or soiled (i.e., red wine stains on the couch) beyond normal wear and tear, you will be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred for the repair of the damage by qualified and licensed contractors.

YOU ARE REQUIRED to leave the property in the same general condition in which it was received. Dishwashing and laundry completed and removing the trash are the responsibility of the renter and are not a part of normal cleaning.

- WHAT WE SUPPLY: The property is equipped and set up as a fully furnished property that will include bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, TV, and furnishings. Although we made every effort to anticipate most people’s needs, WE MAY NOT HAVE ALL THE ITEMS YOU MAY BE ACCUSTOMED TO HAVING AT YOUR OWN HOME. If there is a special type of item you are accustomed to using such as a special type of cooking utensil, etc. please provide for those items by bringing them with you.
- WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING OR BUY: Although the bathroom will be stocked, you might want to bring with you personal items such as bath soap, shampoo, or any other personal toiletries. We also supply two rolls of toilet paper for the bathroom. While we make every attempt to have items such as paper towels, dish soap, cooking spices, salt, pepper, trash bags, and other non-perishable items; it is possible these items were completely used by the last renter. We do not supply unlimited quantities of these items, they are your responsibility. Generally, the kitchen has some basic staples we or a prior renter left at the unit and the cleaners did not throw out. We are not responsible for food or drink related items found in the unit when you arrive. To be responsible for these items would require us to throw out everything related to edible items after every renter, and we have discovered that by far, most renters DO NOT want to have to go shopping and purchase all food staples when they are on vacation. So please use common sense. If anything looks unfit, don’t eat it and toss it. If you have any problems with this, please do not use anything that you have not personally purchased yourself.

The Indian Rocks home was even better than described! Everything was immaculate, and Jeanel was wonderful to work with. In addition to the beach (which is a short two blocks away), there is a park nearby with tennis, shuffle-board, basketball courts, and a children's playground that was perfect for our family vacation! Jeanel even had a pack-n-play available for our 18 month old grand-daughter!
On the Rocks was by far one of the best experiences ever! Perfect location just a few blocks from the beach, nearby restaurants, and comfortable and safe neighborhood just steps from the tennis court.
With rentals you always wonder what you will encounter, but Jeanel's home was absolutely perfect with every amenity you could wish for. The posting is accurate... but this statement doesn't do this listing justice as we found the house immaculate and more comfortable than we ever expected. Perfect layout with the hammock and porch furniture on the deck to fully enjoy the mornings and sunsets.
We found ourselves being extra careful with everything in the house and trying our best to not to mess anything up because we fell in love with the experience and hope that Jeanel will have us back. It really is a perfect layout with the hammock and porch furniture on the deck to fully enjoy the mornings and sunsets.
We enjoyed our trip to this house. The location was great for walking to the beach and some good local restaurants. The drive to explore the local area was also easy. The house was clean, well equipped, comfortable and really quiet which made for a very relaxing break.
We had a great trip to IRB. The community was relatively small with very few large hotels and condo complexes like other parts of the Gulf coast. The house was very pleasant and comfortable with many amenities to make it feel like home. We especially enjoyed the short walk to the beach and nearby restaurants as well as the hammock on the deck. The listing description of the home was very accurate. The surrounding neighborhood was quiet and safe.
The house is delightfully furnished reflecting Island life, wonderfully comfortable and well equipped with a huge deck for relaxing. The neighbourhood is quiet and freindly and there are restaurants within walking distance, the french cafe/bakery was a particular favourite, wonderfaul pastries!
Jeanel is an attentive host answering all queries quickly and comprehensively.
Indian Rocks Beach is a great place to stay and this house a real gem!

About the Host, Jeanel
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
