“A little slice of heaven!”
Reviewed September 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I rented the patio apartment for two weeks and enjoyed every moment. The unit was immaculate and so charming. The patio and gardens were so beautiful and comfortable. Everything you would want for the beach was provided - chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards and you are right on the beach. The kitchen was fully equipped so you could cook if you wanted, and the new propane grill was nice. Mertyl, the owner, does such a great job greeting her new guests, showing them where everything is, and taking care of everything.
The location is excellent, in quiet Indian Rocks Beach near Crabby Bills - my usual breakfast stop. I like this area because it is like a small town, unlike the other areas that are all high rise buildings.

“A taste of old Florida steps from the beach”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband had a conference in Tampa and last minute I was available to go with him so he decided to get a place on the beach because I love it so!!! Mrytle was a pleasure to deal with the very first time we talked to her, even on short notice. The garden cottage was very nice, plenty of room, very clean and stocked with everything you would need. Sandy shores is a beautiful place!! So much better than the high rise condo's!!!!! Just steps down a beautiful path and you are at the beach!!!! I hope that we can visit Sandy Shores again in the near future.

“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.

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.
