Beachfront Cottages at Beautiful Sandy Shores - Steps Away from the Sand- Patio Cottage


Home Description

Please be our guest! Sandy Shores has been in the Hall family for over 60 years, and is currently owned and operated by Myrtle Hall. Myrtle is German-born and moved to Indian Rocks Beach in 2000 when she married her late husband, Ned. Ned’s grandmother bought the Indian Rocks Beach property in 1946. Ned's father George Hall built the first, two-story building in 1952.

Ned's family lived here in the winter, and spent the summer in Ithaca, NY, where his father was the Golf Coach at Cornell University for over 40 years. Ned followed in his footsteps as a PGA Teaching Professional for over 25 years. He was teaching at the Clearwater Golf Club located in Clearwater, Florida when Myrtle, in Florida on holiday from Germany, met him in 1998. Myrtle and Ned, of course, had their wedding right in front of beautiful Sandy Shores!

Like Ned, Myrtle fell in love with this beautiful property and its rich family history. Ned and Myrtle started to rent out their cottages in 2005 after a complete beautification and enjoyed every minute of sharing this lovely property with their guests. Myrtle carries on the Hall family tradition of hospitality at Sandy Shores and adds her special brand of German warmth. Her attention to detail and cleanliness makes Sandy Shores a unique and charming retreat.
Wireless/WIFI available.

Sandy Shores is a very unique “slice of old Florida”, with lots of flowers, palms, lounging areas, privacy, all with a relaxed vibe. There are only four units on the property and three of them rent on a weekly basis – so most of the time you have the whole place to yourself.
The Gulf Cottage is a single story, one bedroom House, very private, quiet and clean with a spectacular, unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico. It has a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa.
The kitchen has everything what a chef would wish for, a big fridge, dishwasher, microwave and stove included. The bathroom has a shower and bath tub.

Behind the Gulf Cottage and landscaped courtyard is a two story building – the top floor I reside in – with the PATIO and GARDEN Cottages below.
The Patio has a King Bed and Queen Sleeper Sofa, the Garden has a Queen Bed and
a Queen Sleeper Sofa. Both have a full kitchen with stove, fridge and microwave.
The bathroom has a shower and toilet.
The weekly price for the GARDEN is as follows:
Winter Feb-April $949 + $60 Cleaning + 13% tax totals to $1140.17
Other season $749 + $60 Cleaning + 13% tax totals to $914.17
Standard rate in "other" season $114 per night

The feel of what Florida used to be:)

The cottage was quaint, cozy and super clean. The gardens, patios and all the grounds are just beautiful. Just a short walk over the dunes to the ocean. I will be back again and again. This is my favorite area of Indian Rocks beach. Myrtle and her side kick Abbie were very accommodating!

Quaint cottage right on the beach with everything

The cottage is located steps from the beach and Mrytle supplies everything you need from beach towels, beach chairs, shade umbrellas, beach toys, etc. The cottage is well maintained and there are several restaurants and stores in walking distance. We had a rental car and explored the local area (went parasailing at John's Pass, kayaking at Shell Key island, walked Pier 60 at Clearwater Beach, etc.) but if you are only wanting to relax at the beach you could walk to everything you need without a car.

Beautiful and well maintained.

This was mine and my significant others third stay at Sandy Shores (if that tells you anything). We always come back and it only gets better each time.

Quiet oasis by the beach!

My wife and I were looking for a quiet area of beach on the Gulf Coast. It met all of our wish list! Cottage was excellent and Myrtl was on site to help with everything. We will gladly come back again! Thanks, Don & Pam
