All updates and amenities, near all conveniences and located in a neighborhood area of private homes and low-rise condominiums.

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!

"Mi Casa" is located on Gulf Boulevard about 1/4 mile from the Walsingham Bridge to the mainland.There are some restaurants and shops within walking distance and also a beach bus that can take you down the 14 miles of barrier island beaches. 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.
Mi Casa has a pass through driveway for 2-3 cars and a full parking area for several more cars. It is located next to the Kooky Coconut, an ice-cream store and outside restaurant, beer, sandwiches available. Mi Casa is on the gulfside, 1 house back from the beach with no streets to cross. We are 50 steps to the beach access.
