**NEW LISTING** Welcome to family-friendly Indian Rocks Beach. When you enter the living room of this lovely condo, you'll know exactly why you're here - put up your feet, relax, and soak in the breathtaking 180-degree gulf front view. Whether you are inside or out on the well-appointed balcony, you will be surrounded by the sight and sound of the Gulf of Mexico. Because of the unique location of this intimate 4-unit building, every room in the condo has a view of the water. Note: 1 week minimum stay, requires Saturday arrival in season.
There's plenty of space to spread out with 1600 square feet at your disposal. The well-stocked kitchen, with updated stainless steel appliances, has what you'll need to prepare anything from morning coffee and toast to a gourmet supper. The dining area seats 11 comfortably -- 6 at the table and 5 more at the breakfast bar. The spacious balcony is wide enough to accommodate an additional table for 4 (as well as 2 chaise lounges) and is perfect for enjoying evening meals at sunset. If a break from meal preparation is part of your vacation plans, try one of our fantastic local restaurants, many of which are within walking distance. A welcome pack of coffee and teas will help get the first morning of your beach vacation off to a great start!

“Legend has it that Florida's beach community of Indian Rocks Beach reputedly got its name when a native medicine man miraculously healed his chief with the waters from a natural sulfur spring believed to have been located in Kolb Park across from Indian Rocks Beach City Hall. Early settlers seeing the Indians on their way to the rock encircled spring would say, "The Indians are on their way to the rocks".
