About this listing
Our spacious apartment is fully equipped for your beach vacation. 150 yards from the beach & short trolley ride from Clearwater beach. Whatever you'll decide to do you are sure to fall in love with Indian Rocks Beach.
Cozy and comfortable space is perfect to relax after a day on the beach, riding roller coasters at Busch Gardens, or visiting Disney (a little under two hours away). The apartment is located 150 yards from the beach. The apartment is perfect for up to four adults. Kid and small pet friendly with available running stroller, play-n-pack, and high chair. Large screen TV and a Roku box available but there is no cable service. Wireless internet is available. While the space is very comfortable as our reviews show, it is important to note that the apartment is a beach cottage duplex. One would describe it as cute rather than luxurious.
Enjoy your own sitting area in a shared yard. Washer dryer are available and also shared on location (a brand new laundromat is within walking distance if necessary). We try to make as many little items available as possible such as fishing equipment, beach chairs and blankets, golf clubs, sand toys, coolers, baby stroller and playpen etc. Simply let us know what you'll need and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Interaction with Guests
The property is a duplex and we do live full time in the other apartment. We believe you are here on your vacation so unless you need something from us we will be keeping to ourselves. We will be happy to help you find things to do, places to see, and share some important local information.
Indian Rocks Beach is an amazing little town. While other cities up and down the coast are touristy and busy, IRB stays calm and quiet even in the middle of the season. We have three beautiful parks, with one just around the corner that offers a playground, tennis and basketball courts, and of course the beach all a short walking distance away.
While we have plenty parking for you here. You could take a cab or shuttle from the airport. The beach trolley is a great and cost effective way to explore Clearwater beach or Treasure Island.

We loved our time at Eran and Julia's cozy beach cottage in Indian Rocks Beach, FL. The only downside was that we couldn't stay longer! Eran and Julia were very welcoming and amazing hosts, making us feel instantly at home. The cottage was perfect for our family of 4 and had everything we needed. The use of beach toys, chairs and and an umbrella was a bonus, as was being able to enjoy their yard. My girls (4 and 7) loves the rope swing and swinging bench. The beach as a quick 1.5 block walk away and the cottage was perfectly located for exploring all the area has to offer. We highly recommend a visit to the French bakery a few blocks away, ice cream at the Kooky Coconut, and seafood from Ward's Seafood Market. Can't say enough good things about Eran and Julia's home and Indian Rocks Beach. We hope to be back!
Eran was waiting to welcome us when we arrived. Eran and Julia's home is just as described on Airbnb, it's cozy with all the necessary amenities to make you feel at home. We cooked several of our meals while there and the kitchen was fully equipped to our needs. The neighborhood was very quiet and the beach is less than a two minute walk away. After a long day out, we came home had dinner and went back to see the sunset. As an added touch Eran has a "sunscreen station" right out side the front door for his guests to use. My family and I are looking forward to going back to Indian Rocks and hope Eran and Julia can host us again.
We loved staying at Eran and Julia's home. It was cozy, homie, and super close to the beach - in short, perfect! Eran provided everything we would have ever wanted to enjoy the beach. He was a text away, if needed. Hope to be back soon!
The house was amazing and the location couldn't have been any better. Eran and his wife Julia were very hospitable and made our visit one of best vacations we've had this far.
You're on the doorstep to a rather secluded and never overcrowded beach. There isn't a great deal of public parking which leads to the beaches being rather empty. At one point we took a stroll and literally saw three people for about 1/2 of a mile on the beach, no kidding. Quite amazing for Florida. If we were to pick another spot again, I'd certainly quickly vote for Indian Rocks Beach. This doesn't account for the amazing experience that we had at Eran's amazing condo.
My wife, two year old daughter, and I had an amazing time at Eran's. He and his family were very attentive to our needs and were so very friendly day after day. The condo was stocked with stuff for the beach including an umbrella, beach cart, buckets and shovels, and other items like coolers, and sunscreen. We stayed a total of seven days and if we could have stayed longer, we would have. If we needed anything at all Eran was just a text away and in many cases he responded within minutes to our questions.
The condo provided us with ample room to watch television as our little one slept or napped. Eran's even considered bed comfort for the finicky sleeper. One bed is soft and the other firm. The outdoor accommodations made it easy for us to enjoy grilling, or having a few drinks at the end of the day at our own table. The kitchen was accommodating and made it easy for us to enjoy a family dinner after a day at the beach.
Overall, I'd go back to Indian Rocks and I'd go back to stay with Eran again. We had an awesome time.
Our experience with Eran's place was positive and very pleasant. The beach was indeed a very short 2 minute walk. The home was cozy and comfortable.
Really enjoyed our quick stay at Eran's unit on Indian Rocks Beach. Eran and his family were very accommodating and quick to respond to questions. The unit was clean and just a 2 minute walk to the beach. A gas station/Subway was just around the corner for refreshments and food. Being that we flew in, and packed light, it was great that Eran provided beach towels, chairs, coolers, etc. Fishing poles were also available. Great stay, we'd definitely stay again.
