“Awesome view, beautiful slice of the Florida coast, and terrific hosts make for a fun, relaxing getaway!”
Reviewed 27 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

What a fantastic place to spend your time at the beach! We love the beach in the Tampa area, and particularly enjoy staying in Indian Rocks Beach. There is so much to do in the area, whether you have kids or not. Our kids are grown now, but always enjoyed the trips we've taken to that area. From major league baseball to aquariums and museums and terrific seafood to beautiful, white sandy beaches and the warm gulf water, Tampa has it all! This year for the first time, my wife and I headed to the coast by ourselves, no kiddos. While looking for a condo unit, we found Ned and Myrtle's Sandy Shores, Gulf Cottage. It's amazing! The cottage is beachfront, having great views from inside and out. The unit is nicely furnished with all the comforts of home, including a king size bed, a HD widescreen television, a great selection of books if you're a reader, high speed internet with wifi, and a fully stocked kitchen. The property has a shared laundry room, and a storage room full of beach chairs to make the beach experience more comfortable. The location is great, near everything you could possibly need as far as restaurants, seafood market, grocery stores, quick marts, pharmacies, etc. Beautiful drives along the coast whether you go north or south. The beach was not over crowded, and there were times when there wasn't another person for 100 yards in either direciton, if privacy is what you're looking for. The grounds are well kept, and have great sitting nooks, tables, and lounge chairs surrounded by beautiful landscaping and shade trees if you need a break from the sun. Ned and Myrtle are great hosts! Ned recommended some great restaurants that we'd never have found if not for his directions, and they are both very personable and fun to be around. While we were never "intruded" on by hosts who live on the premises, they were always available if we had a need, and were always gracious and pleasant. It's obvious that they love their piece of paradise, and they truly enjoyed sharing it with us! Our stay was for 11 nights, and we wish we could have stayed longer. If you like what you're seeing of this property, don't hesitate to book it. We'll be back!!

“can't wait to go back!!!!”
Reviewed 12 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

my family and i were recently lucky enough to stay at sandy shores and cannot wait until we go back. mr. ned and mrs. myrtle were extremely friendly and made us feel instantly at home. the rental we occupied was very clean ( a huge plus to me ) and spacious enough for two adults , two teenagers and a toddler. the halls normally do not have a lot of children ( mostly couples ) yet they took a chance on us and we were extremely happy there. highly recommend to all and hope to get back next year for vacation.
