About this listing

This is our wonderful three bedroom, two bath house located less than 400 steps to the beach! IRB is right in between Clearwater (less than 7 miles) and St. Pete Beach (13 miles) - close enough to all the action but still far enough away!

The space

The house is very charming and offers a welcome respite from "real life." We love spending time there after a long week at work and enjoying our home away from home! The space is approximately 1300 sq ft, with a very nice size yard complete with hammock, covered porch and grill. Families are especially welcome!

The kitchen is fully functional and comes with a dishwasher, microwave, and all the tools necessary for cooking, along with an outdoor charcoal grill . There is also a washer and dryer, iron, wi-fi, and a 50-inch tv to enjoy!

The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, plenty of closet space, and an en suite, newly renovated bathroom.

A second bedroom has two twin-sized beds, with even more closet space, and the third bedroom has a day bed (and could sleep 2). The couch in the living room can also fold out into a bed, in a pinch.

All sheets and towels are provided. We also have plenty of beach towels, a wagon and cooler to help haul your stuff down to the beach.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house and yard.

Interaction with guests

We live in Costa Rica but will do everything we can to make your stay be enjoyable!

Wow! Just...WOW! Joe's place was absolutely perfect for our week-long family vacation. Me, my husband, 21 yr old daughter and 18 yr old son enjoyed the home and the location so much. Everything we could need and want was a short walk away. I loved how close we were (a five-minute walk) to the beach we were. And the beach entrance was quiet and not overly populated like other beaches. We had a peaceful time. We did go to Clearwater Beach one day, to experience the vibrant atmosphere, but Indian Rocks Beach was more preferable to us. What we loved about the house: three bedrooms and two baths were vital with four adults! The kitchen was fully stocked for us to do cooking and thus save money by fixing our own breakfasts and lunches. The decor was so cute and beachy. The screened back porch and hammock were big hits during the cool night breezes. Having a washer and dryer was a huge bonus! The location was prime - being close to great local restaurants and a great beach access yet being on a residential street was the best of both worlds. Neighbors were kind and welcoming. The whole vibe of Indian Rocks Beach was laid back and relaxing. The locals were kind and welcoming and we didn't feel like "tourist" but more like welcomed friends. We hope to return again as soon as possible! Thank you, Joe!

Great location and just as described! My family and I enjoyed our stay. We just wish it didn't rain so much. If you're looking to be in close proximity to a nice beach without the commercialization, crowds, and high rises... then IRB is your beach and Joe's place is your vacation home.

Joe was very helpful and accommodating. The house is beautiful, close to the beach (with very helpful beach gear) and restaurants. We'll definitely recommend it to others

Our stay at Joe's place met our basic needs and was a pleasant location to spend a few days relaxing. Joe was very accommodating and communicative as needs arose through our stay. The weather, largely, did not cooperate, which relegated us to the house mostly, which was still suitable for 4 adults and 2 infants. Joe even had an extra pack n play and kids toys in one of the closets. Unfortunately, we did have a large scale electrical issue from running the toaster and microwave at the same time. While this put a temporary damper on our trip, Joe worked with us quickly to resolve the issue and discounted our stay accordingly. Overall, we enjoyed our experience with this AirBnB location.

This was my first time using airbnb. Joe's place was perfect for our girls weekend. IRB was a beautiful quiet beach. A lot of places were within walking distance. The home met all of our needs. We hope to return!

This place was perfect for us and was exactly as described. Within walking distance to not only the beach but several restaurants which made this so convenient. We especially appreciated the wagon and rolling cooler provided at the house to take all of our beach gear to the beach. I would highly recommend this to families, you will not be disappointed!
