Owner Info

Year Purchased: 2002
Why this property? We stayed on Indian Rocks Beach years ago as children and teens and have fond memories of summers here, making homemade ice cream and hunting in the intercostal for scallops!
As children we remember the old wooden bridge leading to the beach from the mainland and the sound crossing it would usually wake us up from the long trip from Tampa! I remember the smell of the pine needles from the Australian Pines that used to line the beaches. The wooden bridge and pines are gone now but the flavor of Old Florida remains in this area of older beach cottages, low rise condos and 2 lane streets.

In 1994, our Mother bought Su Casa, one of the old Creel "rock" cottages which is gulf front and sleeps 12. Su Casa was made from rocks hauled down from the Withlahoochee River. In 1996 she gave the house to the 4 sisters and we have continued to rent it to this day. It is a wonderful, updated 1937 beach cottage that sleeps 12. Several years ago, the house diagonally behind Su Casa became available. Mi Casa is a wonderful 1947 beach cottage which I bought to save it from the wrecker's ball and the other homes in the block from becoming condos. I wanted to save the flavor of old Indian Rocks Beach. Mi Casa is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath homes which sleep 8!

There are many things to do in the area that would however, require a car. If you plan to sightsee and take advantage of what this area has to offer, I would recommend a car.
