About this rental

Why Kids Love It
First of all, kids love the beach! Where do I begin about all the fun stuff there is to do in the Tampa Bay Area?
• Kids love attractions like Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, and Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Splash Harbour Water Park is the closest water park to the beaches and it’s right here in Indian Rocks Beach.
• Go fishing with Hubbard’s Marina. Let the staff of Hubbard’s Marina do all the messy stuff. Kids and parents can enjoy some time on the water together and laugh about the one that almost got away.
• Beach Art Center in Indian Rocks Beach has art classes for kids and adults.
• Adventure! Go on a snorkeling tour. Rent a kayak or a boat and explore nearby islands. Go parasailing.
There’s a lot to explore within a half-hour’s drive from your vacation rental. John’s Pass Village is only minutes away, where you can enjoy shopping, dining, or take a boat tour from Hubbard’s Marina. You could visit Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach for its nightly sunset festivals. Visit the historic sponge docks in Tarpon Springs and take a plunge into its unique Greek culture. Go on an ecotour with Clearwater Marine Aquarium. St. Petersburg’s downtown waterfront has plenty of museums, restaurants, and shopping.

Comfy Cottage with Old Florida Charm
JP's Turtle Nest is an adorable cottage that mixes modern conveniences with Old Florida style charm. Our party consisted of three adults, and it didn’t feel overcrowded. The queen bed and sleeper sofa are very comfortable—not too hard or too soft. Overall, the beach-themed cottage is clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. The ideal location is only a few steps to the sparsely populated beach so going back and forth from bungalow to sand and surf throughout the day is easy. Also, within a short distance is Splash Harbor Water Park, Indian Rocks Historical Museum, and Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve. There are many great restaurants nearby, too. Guppy’s on the Beach has fantastic steak and seafood, Crabby Bill’s has good food and beachside ambiance, and people say Kooky Coconuts has the best Cuban sandwiches in Florida. We absolutely love JP’s Turtle Nest. There wasn’t enough time during our 3-day mini-vacation to do everything as we hoped, so we’re making plans to return ASAP.

Couldn't have asked for a better view! Needed some bedroom ceiling fans for circulation, but it was cold when we were there. The few hours we had of sunshine on the balcony was great!!
