My wife and I have been coming to the Indian Rocks Beach area for almost 15 years. We usually stay in a nice, but a bit older place, a couple of blocks to the beach. Unfortunately, it was sold this last year. When looking for our new place we came across Indian Rocks Beach Suites-just two blocks to the beach. We gave Bob and Miho a call and they assured us they have a wonderful place to stay and that they just opened this last month. We checked them out on Trip Advisor too, and they have a couple of nice reviews already and we could see why.
Even though it was just my wife and I, we chose the two-bedroom Bougainvillea Suite. Although, the property is an older 1953 duplex, it was fixed up real nice. Clean, fresh paint and not full of old furniture like most of the beach rentals in this area. You could tell they spent some money fixing up this older duplex. New appliances and nice new or like-new furniture. The bed was also new as advertised, an expensive Sealy Posturepedic bed with all cotton linens and we slept great every day of our two-week stay.
IRB is an old beach town with a relaxed atmosphere and Indian Rocks Beach Suites is a nice quiet place to stay. The property itself has a beautiful garden with a nice new BBQ and table with 6 chairs in the back all set under a really large live Oak tree. On the front Patio there is a nice table and chairs under some fig trees as well and we enjoyed our morning coffee here most days. We mostly eat out, but we do like to eat our breakfast at home and they provided everything we wanted or needed in the kitchen.
We loved the location, 5-10 minutes by foot to most restaurants in town and we did not need our car at all except to leave the island and go to the supermarket.
We already booked our next summer holiday with Bob and Miho, and we have told a few of our friends to check them out as well. Thanks again for all your help while we stayed with you and for the red wagon, beach chairs, umbrella and ice chest!
All the best, Ron and Sue
First of all I need to say that the property came to our rescue. We had a reservation at one of the larger hotels on the beach that didn't work out last minute. The owners took us on the spur of the moment and not only accommodated us, but upgraded us as well, at no charge. The grounds are an immaculate garden with sitting and grilling areas. The interior was all brand new and spotless, I mean clean. They even provide beach wagons with chairs and umbrella for their guests. We have been looking for someplace to build a relationship with and for us it looks like we have found it. The owners are very detail oriented and kind as they even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine for our anniversary. We will be back.
