Oasis Away from Home
We have stayed with Liz for several years. In the past we have stayed in the Dolphin, which is EXCELLENT, but we have outgrown the space so we booked our trip in the Mermaid bungalow. Liz is such a great host! This was the least smooth of our trips because of some non-Liz related issues and Liz went out of her way to make sure that we were taken care of in the following excellent ways: 1) Another site cancelled our stay 8 days before we were set to arrive and Liz went out of her way to make sure we were able to re-book. 2) The dishwasher stopped working on our first day and Liz had someone over and able to fix it while we were resting on the beach. It wasn't a simple fix either. He was a great repair tech and took care of us also. 3) Because of the chaos of the cancellation, I mistakenly re-booked 1 day short of our original departure. 1 hour before the made was set to arrive, Liz was kind enough to allow us to remain one day longer even though it inconvenienced her. Liz is a super host and we come back year after year because of her!

Barefoot Bungalow
My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at the Lobster bungalow. The bungalow was very comfortable and clean. I really love the vintage/beachy theme of the place. It really adds to the beach bum experience. We were just a tip toe away from the heated pool and ocean. We loved the stunning sunset views and outdoor activities provided. (volleyball, bocce, and cornhole) We will be back. Thank you Liz for being so accommodating and friendly.

Such a blast!
We stayed at in the Mermaid and absolutely loved it! We had a great view of the beach and direct access too. The pool was a perfect place to relax in the shade (great for my wife and I who currently have skin cancer). There was also activities around for us to enjoy, like volleyball and cornhole. The cabin itself was able to fit our large group comfortable and came with internet access, which I greatly appreciated. It was great time and I cannot wait to bring my family back again!

Best place in Indian Shores.
The bungalow was beautiful and right on the beach.It was well decorated and very clean. The area is very family friendly. Everything we needed was in a few mile radius. The beach was clean with easy access to the ocean or if you want something a little calmer and warmer you can hop in her heated pool.10/10 would recommend to anyone.

Great location, lots to do, on the beach with pool
We had a great time, thank you for the great vacation, we had our dog with us, it was his first time on a vacation and everything went well. The pool is very nice, mostly shaded which gave us a break from the sun. The beach is beautiful, with fantastic sunsets. The bathrooms could use a few more towel racks or hooks for bathing suits to dry. Kitchen (we stayed in the mermaid) is big with all the dishes, cooking utensils you need. Would recommend definitely. We came with our kids, they enjoyed the cable TV and fast internet (they brought their xbox) and loved the pool and beach. We plan to go back next summer!

A wonderful place to be!
Our rental was right on the pool/beach. It was perfect! Gorgeous pool and the beach - beautiful, private - everything you could want. The cottages were spacious, clean and kitschy. They had everything you needed. You could tell good people stayed there as everything was well kept and stocked. The owner, Liz, was lovely and even though we had no pets, every pup there was well behaved and everyone was respectful of the rules. The people staying at the other cottages were wonderful and had stayed there before. Obviously Liz knows what she’s doing 😃. My parents also stayed with us and both of them loved the place. The beds were very comfortable which doesn’t always happen in rentals. Hoping to see you next year! Cheers!

Beyond Wonderful
Our family stayed over Thanksgiving in the Mermaid/ Seahorse. Everything you would need or want was in the cottages. Liz answered questions promptly. The deck, pool, beach, sunsets. Seriously there are no words. We enjoyed bonfires on the beach, starlit nights and glorious days. We didnt want to leave. Well be back!

Mermaid Seahorse
A great vacation. There were 8 of us had plenty of room for us. We liked the quaintness of the bungalow. Everything was very clean. The place was decorated so uniquely just perfect. The view of the ocean and pool was awesome. The grand children loved having the pool so close by. It is fantastic having the pool that is under a cover for anyone that is sensitive to the sun. There were plenty of outside chairs and pool toys. We will be returning. Convenient to stores andrestaurants both walking or driving .

Great location, amazing beach and a wonderful host!
We rented all the bungalows for our large group for Spring Break and loved every minute. The location in Indian Shores is perfect, mini golf for kids just blocks down the road, close to amazing restaurants either way you turn, great wide lanes for walks and runs or biking. We went up to Clearwater a few different days and getting there was very easy. The pool was great for all our kids, the beach was amazing (we saw dolphins every day!) The owner (Liz) had anything there you needed for a great time. The fire pit was a hit! More than one night we had a fire on the beach, so much fun. All the bungalows were clean and well appointed. The vibe in each is perfect and all of our group had a great time. The owner (Liz) is SUPER available and was always helpful with any questions we had. Her check-in directions were clear and we always felt taken care of. Unfortunately we have to move our party to a new location next year but we would rent these again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Liz for sharing your peaceful and beautiful bungalows with us!
