“Great Getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I stumbled onto this property on the internet while I was looking for a nice quiet low stress long weekend beach getaway. Wow it is paradise. The pride of the owners for this property is immediately evident. The cottages are intimate and charming. Once inside the gate we felt like we were in our own little tropical paradise. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Restaurants and supplies are within a short stroll. My family and I cannot wait to visit the inn again.

Thank you Laura and Jim for a wonderful weekend.

My wife and I married here back in October 2005 right on the beach. We always enjoy going back and plan to again for our anniversary this October. This is a very special place nestled right on the beach at 'The Narrows' in Indian Rocks. Wev'e rented the main beach home with the four primary apartments, 'Starlight, Heart, Lighthouse, and 'Tarpon'. Each apartment home has a unique charm and offers great comfort and all the amenities. Their Chic-a-Sea cottage next door is also wonderful, private and very comfortable for an entire family. It's currently under remodeling and I cant wait to see it at completion.
The deck out back is spacious and offers a large custom stainless grill for cooking. The large Adirondack Chairs are a great spot to relax, enjoy a drink, and immerse your self in our great Florida weather.
We have made some fond memories here with our family and friends, this is the real Florida that your'e looking for, my home for sunsets !

Room Tip: Know your needs and plan accordingly. Colonial Court offers accomodations to fit those needs, and ea...

For our first long term vacation stay in Florida we chose the Bay & Beach Guest House accommodation offered by the Colonial Court Inn located in Indian Rocks Beach.The idea of a small cottage on the water, within walking distance to the beach and restaurants (rather than a condo) appealed to us and the B&B cottage was the perfect choice. The cottage is located in a residential neighborhood which is a great location, very quiet and serene. It was fully equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable for two. Jim and Laura, the owners live adjacent to the cottage and are exceptional hosts as well as all around great people. We could not have made a better choice for our vacation - It was perfect in all respects!

we absolutely loved the Colonial Court Inn, it was perfect for our three-day girlfriends getaway. it's comfortable, charming and quiet. loved having a kitchen and outdoor grill, we weren't interested in eating out - we were happy to go to Publix, stock up. and enjoy life on the beach! Jim & Laura Labadie are lovely people, the fresh flowers are such a nice touch. we hope to make a yearly tradition of staying here. if you want all the luxury amenities, daily maid service, and a pool - go to a big hotel... if you want to relax in a homey, quiet environment for a while, stay here.

What can I say about this place that hasn't already been said... It is the most charming place directly located directly on the gulf. The gardens are a peaceful entrance way leading to the gulf.

Laura and Jim treat this place as they would their own home. The "main house" is divided into 4 quaint and yes updated units that face the gulf. The 2 upstairs units have a lovely porch with a view of the sunset which is to die for...

Each unit is spotless and has all the amenities you'd expect.

This is our 2nd stay with them. We rented all the units for our family reunion 5 years ago and loved it so much we took all the units again this year for the same family reunion.

Close and convenient to all the best of Indian Rocks Beach.

Looking forward to the next family reunion with them!!!

I hope you enjoy the place as much as we did....

We rented units 5 and 5A, the Lighthouse and the Starlight, for a week. Laura and Jim have a lovely, home-away-from home place on the beach. The two apartments constitute the entire upstairs, with a long balcony porch for watching those glorious sunsets. Fresh flowers from the lovingly attended garden had been placed in our rooms. The apartments are cute, comfy and well-appointed. The beach in Indian Rocks is uncrowded and peaceful. The water was clear, with multiple sightings of rays, crabs, dolphins and other sea-life. Too much to tell, but we all had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!! (p.s. If you want to eat in, but don't feel like cooking, go to Surf and Turf gourmet market, 10 minutes away in Bellair Bluffs. Monday-Thursday buy prime beef, fresh seafood, organic chicken, skewers, etc. and they will cook it for you at no additional charge on their open grill! Yum!!)

Room Tip: Units 5 and 5A - upstairs balcony porch!!
