We feel so blessed to have stayed at the cottage overlooking the bright blue waters of the Gulf. Myrtle is a gracious hostess, keeping Sandy Shores so pristine and beautiful, tending to her fragrant and varied array of flowers just steps from the beach. It was so peaceful there with perfect weather every day and fabulous dining (scrumptious seafood and... More

This is my first review for Trip Advisor; I had to share my thoughts about a most idyllic vacation spot. Sandy Shores is the perfect destination if you are searching for a quiet, quaint, and secluded place to stay. There are three cottages, owned by the most lovely hostess, Myrtle :). We felt like we were a guest in her... More

I am admittedly reallllllly late in writing this review - sorry about that Myrtle. We stayed in the Patio Cottage again in June 2014 and it was, wonderful, as it always is. The unit is spotlessly clean, as are the grounds. The property is peaceful, safe and right on the beach. Close to restaurants, shopping, drug stores...the location is perfect.... More

We went to Indian Rocks many years ago and were anxious to return to this location hoping we would still find small hotels and restaurants. We did! We found Sandy Shores, and Myrtle was delightful to work with. She cares deeply about her place, and was quick to respond to any little mention of repair needed. Our room was immaculate.... More

My wife and I just returned from Sandy Shores today, and enjoyed a wonderful week in the Gulf Cottage directly on the beach-unit #4. It is an absolutely beautiful location on a beautiful beach which is visible from your living room/dining room windows. The unit was immaculately clean, updated, and very well kept. It had everything you needed for a... More

We visited the Tampa area for the first time as a couple and were looking for a nice quiet beach location to stay, not knowing anything about the area at all. After a cursory search on TripAdvisor we found this place (Sandy Shores), and we were really glad we did. We stayed in the Garden cottage on the first level... More

This was our second stay at Sandy Shores in the Garden Cottage...this time for two weeks and this was as enjoyable as our first stay. The cottage is clean and comfortable, quiet and only steps from the ocean. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous! Several restaurants are within walking distance. Just a great place to stay....going back again next year.

We visited for one week and loved the serenity of the gardens, the beach right at your door step, the wonderful old Florida feel of the premises. We stayed in the Garden suite and it felt like home with a beach. Myrtle is a lovely hostess and keeps the premises beautifully and we really enjoyed an afternoon cocktail on the... More
