Best Vacation Spot Ever. My husband and I recently vacationed at Sandy Shores, in Indian Rocks, FL. located just off the Gulf Coast, The cottage-style apartments were fully furnished, decorated, and equipped with kitchen appliances (if you prefer to eat in). It's setting is very peaceful and the living accommodations were some of the cleanest I’ve ever seen. Not to mention the beautiful botanical garden surroundings. Being only walking distance from multiple restaurants, the CVS Drug store, and the ocean, we feel we really lucked out! This private haven had some of the best seafood restaurants right across the street from where we were staying. All the locals were extremely friendly. If you wish, you can also travel by car to explore the plethora of beach towns along the 20-30 mile stretch down the coast.
The establishment is run by a PGA Golf Professional, Ned, and his wife, Myrtle, who are wonderful people, extremely hospitable and very personable. We got to know the owners quite well and Ned even taught my husband how to golf. We highly recommend Sandy Shores to anyone who is looking for an affordable, quiet getaway to the warm waters of the Gulf.
Didn't need a swimming pool, the ocean was perfect water temp in early June. Walking the beach...
