Here are the most revealing reasons why we love Florida’s Gulf Coast, and why you will too.

Florida’s Gulf Coast has the best beaches in the state.

Not to sound cocky, but if given a choice between the Atlantic side and the Gulf side of Florida, is there really any question on where to go? No! We know we’re biased, but really do think the best beaches are found on the Gulf Coast. Don’t let us convince you, come and see for yourself. You decide!

Soft sugar sand, sparkling shorelines as far as the eye can see, the placid and clear Gulf of Mexico waters reflecting the sun and endless blue sky are all part of everyday life here. Not to mention the spectacular blazing sunsets that put on a different show each and every night for your viewing pleasure. That’s what it’s all about here. It’s easy to see why once you get a taste of Florida’s Gulf Coast, it keeps you coming back for more. And more. And more!

With the some of the best beaches in the Sunshine State, you can be guaranteed to have the ultimate beach vacation filled with warm sunny days and cool coastal nights, and every kind of quintessential beach fun you can imagine. 


Families flock to our safe, community-centered Florida Gulf shore towns.  

Family-friendly beaches, welcoming and safe communities, and love for the locals are all signs that you want to bring your kids here. We love to share the paradise we get to call home with visitors and vacationers, and we’re proud of what our Gulf beach towns and communities have to offer. 

This is especially true of Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores. They’re a little more secluded and a lot more family-centered than some of the larger surrounding Gulf Coast cities offering less crowds and more quality family time spent with those you love the most.  

Indian Rocks and Indian Shores beach vacation rentals are the ideal.

For reasons just mentioned above, Indian Shores and Indian Rocks Beach offer an incredible range of Florida vacation rentals with the amenities you must have on your beach vacation. From condos to large-size vacation rental homes in the locations you want to be, Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores are sure to please.

Take a look at what our Gulf beach vacation rentals and bookmark your favorites. Our rentals tend to fill up early and quickly for the summer season, so planning a year in advance and securing your favorite beach vacation rental ahead of time is always a good idea.

It’s the best of both worlds with access to big cities and small coastal towns.

Staying in Indian Rocks Beach or Indian Shores gives you the more intimate feel and benefits of a small-town stay with the added convenience of being close to the hustle and bustle of the larger nearby cities of Clearwater and Tampa. 

Enjoy the perks of both with the option to be where you please, when you please. Travel to and from both of those cities is quick and easy, so you can go back as often as you like without the hassle of being in the thick of things like traffic and too many crowds during your vacation time. We see that as a definite plus!


The laid-back island life beckons.

Escape everything and seek out the barrier island shorelines, quiet whispering breezes and happily swaying palm trees where the sun, sand and gentle waters are your closest companions. Retreat from the busyness of every day life with us. We promise that once you get a taste of what the laid-back island life offers, you’ll find yourself craving it. 

If you can’t be here with us as often as you like, you can always get your Florida Gulf beach fix 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year with our Indian Rocks Beach cam. Start your day with a morning at the beach or watch the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. How bad can that be?

Life really is a beach on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Yes, it’s true. Life is a beach! And that pretty much speaks for itself.

Come join us and spend some time on the Florida Gulf Coast shoreline. Explore, relax, rejuvenate, and just breathe. Aaahhh! It’s the best. See you on the sand.

When is your next Indian Rocks or Indian Shores beach vacation on Florida’s gorgeous Gulf Coast?
