“2nd year as great as the 1st!!!!”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is our 2nd year in the garden cottage, we love everything about this property! Especially the location! You can walk out your door, through the beautiful garden and there you are on the beach (you can walk for miles) or walk across the street to one of the restaurants! The garden cottage is cozy and very well maintained, we had everything we needed to make our 3 week vacation perfect! Myrtle's warm hospitality and exceptional service are the icing on the cake and the reason we will be back again next year!

“comfortable, clean, friendly and relaxing”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A very friendly atmosphere with Myrtle and her other guests. Beach access is great and
not crowded at all. Good location for visiting Clearwater, Tampa and St. Petersburg.
Good local coffee and doughnut shop and a seafood restaurant close by.

Sandy Shores is a lovely place to stay. We had the beach front cottage. Everything was there that we needed for two weeks. Myrtle is a great hostess. We highly recommend Sandy Shores. Thank you Myrtle.

“Better than we ever expected”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My kids call our July vacation "the best vacation ever."

When we were planning our vacation, we knew we wanted to be close to the beach and within walking distance to restaurants. We got both when we chose to stay Sandy Shores. Myrtle was a wonderful host and was always available when we had a question. She provided beach toys and floatation devices to entertain my kids. The restaurants in the area were delicious. I highly recommend Sandy Shores for a quiet and carefree family vacation.

“Great Gulf Front Cottage to Celebrate Anniversary!”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We honeymooned on Indian Rocks Beach 48 years ago in a gulf front cottage that has long been replaced by condos. We discovered Sandy Shores. which is near the original honeymoon location, and they have one shaded gulf front cottage in addition to several other units.
Our cottage has large windows and has been updated. It was exceptionally clean and perfect for this very special occasion! Myrtle greeted us and made sure everything was to our liking. We would have given an excellent rating if there was a better view of the water. Indian Rocks Beach has sand dunes which obstruct some of the views. With that being said.... you are so close to the water you can't go wrong!
