In this fast-paced world in which we live, sometimes it is difficult just to find time to relax and be fully present with our families. Yet to most of us this is one of our key goals in life, and what we work so hard at our day jobs to achieve! But by the end of the day we come home and are simply too tired to give our undivided attention to the most important people in our lives. Does that sound familiar?

We have been there, and that's why we created Joyful-Stays, a comfortable vacation home setting in one of the most beautiful locations in the continental US, to allow you to relax, recharge, and create lasting memories with your family. You deserve a vacation! So come stay at our house, and take time to reconnect with your loved ones. We hope you love it so much you make it a tradition! Don't wait another moment, life is too precious! Book your next vacation today, and start making those special memories!

Come stay at Joyful-Stays, Beach Retreat, and start making those amazing memories. Our backyard is fully fenced for your enjoyment and that of your four legged family members! The house is situated just a 2 min walk to Indian Rocks Beach, just south of Clearwater, where white sand beaches and calm rolling waves are the norm! Recent addition of a Hot Tub to add to the allure! Cook in our stocked kitchen or walk a few blocks to great restaurants up and down the beach. Kick back and enjoy being on "island time"! Children and pet friendly.

This is our home away from home, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! You are literally steps away from the beach, we provide beach chairs and an umbrella as well as a wagon to get everything there! In addition during in-season months there are umbrellas, chairs, and cabanas that can be rented directly on the beach if you desire. The beaches are some of the best in the world, basically an extension of Clearwater but not so many hotels, so less crowded most of the time! Welcome to Paradise!!! Sunsets are spectacular here, so make sure you see it at least once during your stay!

The house itself has 2 king bedrooms, with a queen sleeper sofa each in both the living room and the Florida room, and can sleep 8 comfortably. There are 2 full bathrooms in the house and a 3rd bathroom in the garage for rinsing off sand, where laundry is also located. Our kitchen is fully stocked and recently renovated. There is plenty of off street parking, for 3 vehicles. The backyard is spacious and has a space for outdoor dining for the whole party to relax and enjoy the Florida weather, lounge chairs, and now a hot tub, for cooler nights!

Please note: there are 2-3 steps to get into the home, into the garage, and into the backyard. Please make sure everyone in your party can handle a few steps.

Several blocks away are delicious seafood restaurants, ranging from upscale to the fast but delicious beach grill, and a French bakery for the sweeter side!

If you get bored of the beach (which is hard in our experience!), check out Indian Rocks Beach Nature preserve, the historical museum, charter a boat, or visit Splash Harbor Water Park. Head over to John's Pass for a day of shopping and great dining. Littles will enjoy the playground a block away from the house. And on the other side of the playground, a bay where dolphin sightings are common!

You will be a short drive away from Clearwater Beach, Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and all the sights and sounds Tampa has to offer.

BTR#1943

We have a keyless entry system for contactless check-in

Parking: We have a long driveway that can accommodate at least 3 cars. We do have a garage as well, but it is somewhat a tight fit, and currently being used more for storage.

We strive to make every visit worthy of 5 stars!! Please feel free to message us if you need anything, or if any issues arise. We try to respond promptly during typical business hours, and as long as we are up! Please try to limit nighttime communications to true emergencies. Thank you in advance! We hope you have an amazing stay!

Indian Rocks Beach is a quaint residential community set on the beautiful white sand beaches just south of Clearwater. While they appreciate the revenue tourists bring in, please keep in mind most of our neighbors are long term residents, and appreciate the peace and quiet!

There are several restaurants in walking distance, and more just a short drive away. Beach Waves Grill, Indian Rocks Cafe, and Cafe de Paris are our favorites for take out! Guppy's and the Salt Rock Grill for a more upscale dining adventure (though Guppy's has good takeout too!).

We have a wagon, beach chairs, and an umbrella for walking to the beach! Parking can be difficult, so your best bet is a short walk down to the beach!

Parking is somewhat limited on the island, but at most restaurants you can usually find a place!

Suncoast Beach Trolley runs from Clearwater beach through Indian Rocks Beach, and down to St John's Pass, Pete Beach and Pass-a-Grille. Hop on and off along the way to access awesome beaches, shopping, and food. Cash fare is a couple dollars, or you can purchase unlimited rides for multiple days for less than $20!

Our house is child and pet friendly. We do ask that pets be crated when you are not at home if they are not going with you. There is an additional pet fee which will be added to the reservation.

We have a pack-n-play, high chair, and baby bouncer available for your use, if desired. Please no pillows or extra mattresses in the pack and play for safety, and children should not be left unsupervised in the high chair or bouncer.

About the owner: Do you find yourself working all day for someone else, and then at the end of the day there is nothing left to give the people you love most? We have been there too. For us we have found that taking time away from it all to relax and recharge, and simply being together is sometimes the best medicine there is. We created Joyful-Stays, Beach Retreat because we wanted to share it with you! Some of our favorite memories have happened in this house, and now you can make your own memories there too. The location is superb. There is something truly amazing about looking out into the great vastness of the ocean and realizing how small you are but how intricately related you are to something so huge and majestic. There is practically nothing that the soothing sound of ocean waves breaking can't cure! We love the proximity to the beach that this house affords us, and hope you will also enjoy it! So come relax and enjoy it with your own family. Take the time to give back to yourself, you are so worth it!

Guestbook comments from the host:

This is a lovely home at a very nice location. The house is beautiful and clean, it has been remodeled to a very modern and bright interior look. Couches are beds and big and comfortable. It has a spacious yard with chairs and tables to unwind and enjoy the evenings after a day at the beach. It’s just a short walk to the beach and has restaurants and cafes nearby (some walking distance or just a short drive). If you don’t feel like going out, it has coffee makers (carafe and keurig), waffle maker, toaster, and all pots / pans / cooking spoons, baking trays etc that you need to cook a nice meal. Beach towels and wagon to carry your stuff to the beach are there too! We’re already looking at my calendar to book our next stay

Beautiful house

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The home was in a perfect location to the beach and the restaurants. Also, if you have kids the house is very safe for them
