“Little piece of Paradise”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Great place on the beach, property owner Myrtle and her sweet dog Abby were great. We decided not to get a car the first week and she drove us the first night to the grocery store to get stalked up for the week. There are restaurants very near our favourite was Aqua Prime..The property is very well kept and the apartment very clean and well equipped with everything you need. We loved walking the beach every morning . Beach chairs are available along with umbrellas for the beach and lots of outdoor spaces to sit and enjoy the gardens. Would definetly recommend this property for a totally relaxing vacation on the beach!

“Peaceful, secluded and perfect on the beach!”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed in the Gulf Cottage over Christmas...very spacious and comfortable. Everything you could want was there, bbq outside, muskoka chairs, loungers on your own private patio overlooking the ocean. Big screen TV, Books, games, full kitchen, dining area with glass table and 4 rattan chairs, nice shower and king bed!
You have a washer and dryer next door to the cottage if you need it, and areas to sit and read in the garden. Crabby Bills restaurant and Slyce Pizza across the road, CVS for all the small requirements like eggs, bacon, milk, bread, soup beach stuff, cosmetics etc. The Sunshine Trolley stops at the door on both sides which means you can ride from Clearwater to St Petes for $2.00 one way, or buy an all day pass from CVS and hop on and off as you like.
One street up is the bus stop for #59 which takes you to the Largo Mall and Movie theatre/shops and grocery store Albertsons.
This is the best place to be in IRB as you can walk to several restaurants up or down the road within 10 mins. Read my other reviews of these on Tripadvisor.

Having stayed at a few condo properties in this area over the years we decided to try something different and spend a week in a beach cottage. Sandy Shores is in a great location with the beach a few steps away, a wide variety of restaurants within walking distance and easy access to shops and malls. It is also a lot more friendly than a typical condo because of Myrtles personal touch and the chance to get together with the guests from the other two cottages. One of the other couples come for a month every year from the UK and, from the guest book I would say a lot of guests return year after year. Great place for a relaxing week or two!

“Beautiful, quiet, private, relaxing ... perfect”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We spent a week at Sandy Shores and didn't want to leave. Our cottage was very clean, well equipped, comfortable and relaxing. Only a few steps from the beach, we were able to enjoy coffee as we looked for shells in the surf, a morning run along a gorgeous stretch of the gulf, and plenty of sunning & relaxing along this secluded shoreline. We could stroll to one of the may dining locations for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or take a short drive to any number of fantastic beach style restaurants from Clearwater to St. Pete Beach. Most places nearby have reasonable drink prices and live music every evening. The owner was wonderful and takes extra care to ensure you are enjoying your stay. Beach needs are available to borrow, chairs, towels, mats, umbrellas, coolers, etc. There is a bbq grill to use as well if you just want to chill at the cabin for an evening or two. We will definitely be looking for a chance to return.

“Beautiful and cozy!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Sandy Shores is an excellent place to stay while visiting Indian Rocks Beach. It is in a great location - and right on the beach!! It is warm, inviting, cozy, comfortable and clean. I had two young children with me and it provided everything needed - including a wonderful picnic area for lunches outside while taking a break from the beach. Plenty of places to eat and shop within walking distance. Excellent!!!!

“Truly "Old Florida" at its very best!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We just returned from staying at the Garden cottage at Sandy Shores. The first thing we noticed about the cottage was the cleanliness. It truly is not exaggerated in all the reviews. The amazing part of this complex is the proximity to the beach (out your door and to the beach!) and the lush tropical whimsical gardens that surround it. Ned kept the gardens meticously and added "whimsey" such as "Wilson" ball complete with glasses, shells etc! Ned passed away the day we arrived, but that did not deter Myrtle from being the perfect hostess, despite her very recent tradgedy. This is a very relaxing vacation spot with only 2 other cottages and the location is prime across from Crabby Bills & other resturants.

Stayed at Sandy Shores for a quick getaway to be right on the beach for some much needed R and R- and that's exactly what we got! The cottage is right on the beach- just a very short walk and you can hear the water at night. Great accommodations that are clean,comfortable and private. We had a great, relaxing time. Restaurants within walking distance. And our cottage had a very well equipped full kitchen. And there's even a CVS drugstore within walking distance right across the street. A great relaxing place. We would definitely make a return trip!
