This is a wonderful place to stay just steps from the beach. The cottage is very comfortable, and we were able to unpack our bags and feel right at home during our stay. Everything you could need for the beach is available, chairs, umbrellas, toys, towels, etc. The owner has a washer and dryer that can be used for a minimal cost. This was such a nice bonus to have available. The area is very lively with several restaurants and shops within walking distance, and though you could hear music playing outside from a couple of the restaurants, it was quiet inside the cottage. The beach was not crowded during our stay, and it was quite enjoyable to spend our afternoons and evenings there. The view from the property at sunset is just beautiful as is the property itself. We also visited several of the nearby towns and museums that were only a short drive away. This is an ideal location, and you won't be disappointed if you stay at Sandy Shores.
A bit of heaven on Earth
Great place to stay
I must start with saying WOW. This was a home away from home as we celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. My husband and I enjoyed every second. It is located directly on the Gulf, only steps to the beautiful white sand and blue-green waters. The garden cottage was fully equipped, as I�m sure the other 3 cottages available are as well! There would be no need to leave the beautiful property that has been in Ms. Myrtle Hall�s family since the 1940�s. If you are not one to cook while on a break, then within very reasonable walking distance there are various food establishments. One of the best we partook of was the �Original Crabby Bills,� enjoying breakfast, lunch, and dinner there at different times of our stay. There is excellent pizza, Slyce, across the street, also. CVS is across the street for whatever needs you may have too. My husband and I recommend one brings a small fan and a relaxing attitude. Ms. Myrtle provides beach chairs, umbrellas, sand gadgets, and has a laundry facility on premise. She lives on property and maintains the grounds wonderfully! She is readily available for questions or concerns, if they should arise. As of note, there were no issues during our 5-day stay. There were only great memories to be made. Ms. Myrtle truly has a gem...a paradise...awaiting for anyone to discover. We had a remarkable time in the Indian Rocks Beach area, thanks to this little piece of heaven that Ms. Myrtle is so willing to share with others!
Relaxing Beach Weekend
My husband and I had a very relaxing and cozy stay. Myrtle is a kind hostess and clearly cares about her guests comfort. The gardens are lovely and the property just feels charming and well loved. The property is on the beach and the parking is easy. Our cottage was cozy and clean with comfortable furnishings and nice linens. She also provides beach towels and chairs! Restaurants and drug stores right across street .
This place was fabulous and excellently located. Myrtle was very accommodating and everything was so clean and well cared for. Visiting again is a must!
Great time Lovely view
We were welcomed to the cottage. Very clean and well appointed. Sitting areas with lovely views.
Everything was super clean and great. Property is perfect for going right out to the beach. Also tons of resturants are very close by!
We really enjoyed Myrtle and her place. Perfect spot near places to shop and eat along with being on the beach as a HUGE bonus. It was a perfect family cottage for our small family of three!
Quaint cottage, hidden in lush gardens
Like old Florida as I have been told is was. Family owned cottages, home away from home. All we needed for our girls trip who like to spend most of our time on the beach. Loved the outdoor areas with all the lush gardens. Clean and very personable areas. Loved that we could hang the chain on the gate as you walked in that said 'private property '.?????
