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 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.
You will have access to the entire house and yard.
Interaction with Guests
We live over in Tampa but will be glad to assist in making your stay be memorable!
The house is located in a truly great spot. The beach is less than 400 steps away, as are some of IRB's best restaurants like Crabby Bill's, PJ's Oyster Bar and Slyce Pizza. An ice cream and coffee spot is located right around the corner. We are located off a side street, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists but still close enough to walk up to a fun time!
There is a bus/trolley service that travels up and down Gulf Blvd, with easy access to Clearwater, Treasure Island, or St. Pete beaches. It can even take you to downtown St. Pete, which is definitely worth checking out. Our driveway easily fits two cars with additional parking on the street. There is also a bike rental shop right around the corner.
Other Things to Note
Your security deposit will be returned once we know that no damage to the house or issues occurred during your stay, including but not limited to any police issues / neighbor complaints, extra occupancy, smoking, or pets.
If you're going to have more than 5 people stay or plan to bring an animal, please let me know in advance and we can try to work something out, otherwise you will lose your security deposit. Seasonal rates may also apply.
Please be courteous of the neighbors. Unfortunately, they are not on vacation with you! IRB is a pretty small community, with a great family atmosphere. It's a favorite among Tampa locals so please just be respectful.
We were welcomed with wine and a nice card. The beach house is very compact, but efficient with the space. It is so close to the beach and the beach access doesn't have a parking lot and so it's very under populated. There were 3-4 restaurants within walking distance and a publix grocery store within 2 miles to get groceries.
We had a great time just going to the beach! Indian Rocks Beach is a very friendly and smaller community.
The master bedroom does not have a large bathroom (no counter space), but you can spread out to the top of the dresser to get ready. There is no DVD player, but they have cable.
This house is very quiet. A lot of people we met who stayed near by complained of traffic and we couldn't hear it at all.
Owner's were very cool!
We had a great time at Joe's place with a family of 6. The place was clean and comfortable. We really liked the decor and style as it helped us to relax. The beach was a very easy walk even with young kids. The beach you can walk to is nice, fairly quite with a shallow warm water and a very small surf. We enjoyed the wagon and beach stuff. We'd love to come back again in the future!
Joe was very responsive. He got back to us quickly after our initial online request. He sent complete and easy to understand directions. The neighborhood was great. The local residents were all very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the quiet, laid back atmosphere.
Choosing an Airbnb for a group can be a risky thing, but our week here was fantastic. The place has everything you like to see at an Airbnb -- a clean house, easy contact with the host, comfortable beds, recommendations and menus to nearby places, and a decently equipped kitchen to put together an occasional meal. Definitely recommended.
Great central location and considerate hosts. Nice, clean house with plenty of space for 5 adults!

We loved this house near the beach. Beautifully clean, very we'll decorated and felt homely. Joe was super helpful prior to booking and on the run up to our stay, lots of local knowledge and handy information in the house when we arrived along with a bucket full of goodies. Would recommend this house to anyone.

Kaitlyn is a former prosecutor and Joe works for a bank, though his mind is always venturing off to plan our next great adventure to some far off destination. We love to travel and get to know new people. Joe is a Gator, and Kaitlyn is a Bulldog and yet, we find a way to make it work!
