About the Property

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Bedrooms: 1
  • Bathrooms: 1
  • Property Type: Condo
  • Minimum Stay: 7 nights
  • Pool: No

The "Shack on the Sand" sits right on the beach between 4th and 5th Avenues. Our 8 unit
building has a gravel parking lot with a reserved space for each unit. There are 3 visitor spots
along the wall.

As of last May our entire property became non-smoking and non vaping. All of the units are individually owned. My unit the "Shack on the Sand" is on the lower left. It will sleep 4 but there are extra charges. The posted rates are for double occupancy. The "Shack" is a Saturday to Saturday rental. The minimum time is 1 week.

The rates vary greatly from season to season. Returning guests receive a $50 discount from May to January. This is the kind of place that welcomes returning guests like family. The joke is if
what you want isn't in the unit you don't need it. Ann, the owner lives 6 minutes away and you may call her to find something or ask her to bring it over. The TV's are mounted on the walls and
Netflix is available. There is a nice selection of CD's as well as speakers to plug your source of music into.

Beach towels and chairs are provided. Books with information about the area are in the book case as well as a shelf of novels that you may take home with you. The wifi is titled shack on the
sand. The password is on the desk. Guests are invited to go through all of the drawers and
cupboards.

Unique Benefits

The most unique benefit is the fact that the "Shack on the
Sand" is directly on the beach and it is GROUND LEVEL.
No stairs!

There are windows the length of the unit so it is bright and airy.

The little front porch has a table and chairs for out door dining.

Net Flix is available , ask Ann

THE BEACH

Area Information

Gulf Blvd runs the length of the barrier island from Clearwater Beach to St Pete's Beach, about 30 miles. It is dotted with one beach town after the other. The best kept secret is the beach trolley. You may pay one fare and ride all day.

You can visit the Sea Bird Sanctuary, John's Pass,the galleries in Pass-A Grille and stop for lunch at the Don CeSar Hotel. Then head north to Clearwater Beach and catch sunset at pier 60. Most evenings you will want to watch sunset from right here at 410 Gulf Blvd while sitting on the couch, the porch or at the water's edge.

Some people plan to visit Busch Gardens in Tampa or spend a day in Orlando, but many times they end up just sitting on the porch or the beach with a good book. The condo library has several books titled "One Tank Trips" They were put together by a local TV station and are filled with wonders to visit that are close by.

Guests are encouraged to walk over to the Indian Rocks Museum in Chief Chic-A-Si Park. It is housed in a former beach cottage donated to the city. Admission is free, it is staffed by volunteers Wednesday through Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Check the Indian Rocks Beach (IRB) online calendar if you want to visit during a city wide festival.

Indian Rocks Beach is small town America. There is a lot of community spirit and the people are happy to be here whether to live or vacation.

If you visit Saint Petersburg for the fancy water front shops and museums be sure to visit the funky part of Central Avenue. You can spend an hour creating a wine glass or a clay bowl. You should visit Haslams Book Store and eat at the Berg nearby. Mama cooks a wonderful Greek salad with potato salad in the middle and her lemon chicken soup is perfection.

There are many more wonderful things to see, taste and do but some folks only leave the beach to charter a fishing boat. Crabby Bill's will cook your catch any way you want it.

Guestbook comments from the owner:

We loved, loved the condo! It was our cozy little hideaway for the week. We had not rented a car but when
we wanted to eat out we were within walking distance of several restaurants, however, we were so
comfortable we stayed close to home all week. The condo had everything we could have possibly needed
from a sewing kit to a beach bag and coffee grinder. Previous tenants left items that we were welcome to
use and we left some things for the next to use as well. Ann, the owner, was very pleasant and helpful by
answering our questions before we arrived about shuttle service and bus service, good restaurants, etc.
We enjoyed Crabby Bills and Jake's Sandwiches were awesome, as well as PJ's Oyster Bar. We took the
trolley just a few steps from our condo to shopping at Johns Pass and spent an entire day there. We will
most definitely return.

If you are looking for elegant, fancy or prestigious this is most likely not for you. However if you are looking
for quaint, cozy, nice and comfortable and clean this is for you. Steps from the waters edge, snuggled in a
relaxing setting. Everything you need is there. All the comforts of home plus a breathtaking view. The
sunsets are so romantic. If you like seafood Crabby Bills is across the street or the best subs we've had at
Jake's Sub Shop. Ann is a special person you meet once in a lifetime friendly, caring and trusting. Pack
your bags and call Ann today you deserve it. This was our first of many visits to come.

Ann's place is PERFECT! As soon as we arrived, my daughter stated she felt like she was walking into
someone's house. Ann has thought of everything. The kitchen had all that we needed. Towels were
plentiful. She even provides beach towels and a variety of chairs and mats to use on the beach. This unit is
perfect for a handicapped individual. No steps and a wonderful large shower. This beach home is clean
and tastefully decorated. Looking forward to our next visit!
