“Lives up to expectations and more; beautiful beach, accommodations and atmosphere.”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Clean and well-appointed apartment, in gorgeous gardens, steps from lovely beach. Care taken to anticipate needs, from kitchen tools to extra towels to beach toys and chairs, and a charming hostess with an equally charming four-legged bodyguard. This quiet beach and peaceful atmosphere release care and worries and make it difficult to leave at the end of the week.

“Absolutely lovely”
Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We so enjoyed our stay here, Myrtle was very gracious, and we felt as though we had our own place at the beach for a few days. So much nicer than a generic condo or motel room...the garden around the cottages was lovely, and a shady respite from the beach. Plenty of dining opportunities within walking distance (we didn't move our car until it was time to leave!). Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat. As a bonus, Myrtle provides beach items such as beach towels and boogie boards, allowed us to take chairs onto the beach, provided laundry facilities and a clothesline for hanging wet beach items...a thoughtful hostess. Hope we can visit again.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I rented the Patio cottage. We enjoyed our stay from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The owner, Ms. Myrtle was wonderful. Her property is wonderful, clean, quaint, quiet, and just a few steps to the beautiful beach. We will definitely return!!!

“A delightful stay”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Spent 6 days at Sandy Shores in the patio cottage. The gardens that surround the whole property are so lovely. Used the patio table for many meals outdoors. Great beach right in front. Many restaurants within blocks. Myrtle is a pleasure to work with.. Will return.

“Little piece of Paradise”
Reviewed May 4, 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 January 2, 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.
