Indian Rocks Beach (IRB) is on a 20 mile long barrier island conveniently located about 25 miles from the
Tampa airport and 17 miles from the Clearwater/St. Pete airport.
"Old Florida” is the term used to describe a slow paced, no high rise, community
approach to natural resources. Our 8 unit building is a fine example of 50’s FL, that retains it
convenience and charm along with comfortable up dates.
Walk out the door onto the beach. You will not have to deal with elevators and
parking garages. You may meet your neighbors and maybe make new friends or
enjoy the solitude of a private spot.
Indian Rocks Beach is small town America. There is a museum, park and gazebo.
You can walk between the intercoastal and the coast. There is even a trolley that runs the length of the island.

Ann is a retired speech therapist and writer who lives nearby with her 32 pound poodle, Fritzy. Her tourist
book about local flowers is for sale. It was written to help her to identify and remember the beauty around her.
Please read the title story on this web site. Her next book is a mystery about local mermaids.
This condo is truly a "by owner" rental. It has been tenderly loved and cared for since 1992. Ann named the
“Shack on the Sand in 1996 when she began weekly rentals. She wanted people to know that it was not a
high rise and was very close to nature. Happily many people are looking for the direct beach front “Old
Florida” experience. The Indian Rocks museum is about 2 blocks away,. It is a beach cottage which has been
moved and enlarged. There, you will find a post card about Port Holiday, which was the original name of our
building. The museum is open from 10 to 2 on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The "Shack" contains enough dishes, pots, pans, linen, books and surprises to make your stay comfortable.
You are encouraged to go through cupboards and drawers. The chances are great that you will find what you
need. If you can’t find something, call Ann to see if she knows where it is. One of our mottos is: “If it’s not
here, you don’t need it.”
Ask Ann about the sky lanterns. If a guest breaks something they usually repair or replace it themselves. As
far as regular maintenance is concerned, in the 20 years that Ann has owned the "Shack" everything has
been replaced at least once including floors, doors and windows. The third round of appliance replacement is
in progress. Naturally furniture and electronics change more often. This little place is used by family and
friends. You will feel welcomed from the moment you walk in the door.
There is no security deposit, because in 17 years guests have respected the little condo and have taken
great care. The view of the beach is excellent and the windows the length of the unit provide natural light all
day. Ground level connivence is one of our biggest assets. Just walk out the door onto the beach. There is a
monitored alarm system if you worry about leaving your valuables for a day trip. This has never been a
problem, but a guest once worried about photo equipment. The system was installed, but the next time that
she came she did not use it. If you wish to use the system tell Ann and she will program a code for you.
Usually the last 4 digits of your cell number.
