Or you can choose to stay in some of our rentals for an extended period of time of a month or more. See individual properties for details on the length of stay required since each has its own requirements.
MAP OF RENTALS
We have a helpful Indian Rocks Beach Rental Property Map that is an interactive tool you can use during vacation accommodation search. It shows an overview of all of our rentals and where they are located in relation to the area and to each other. There is a link to each property so you can quickly research more about the ones you are interested in learning more about.
If you go to the Create Your Vacation page on our website, you can select the dates you’re interested in and which rentals are available during that time period. We offer a variety of search methods that help you find what’s available and when, which amenities and location you want, and how many bedrooms and bathrooms you need. You can also call our reservation line if you prefer to talk to our rental department and book via phone.

The white sugar sands of the Florida Gulf Coast beaches are world famous but still worth the mention. They are even celebrated with an annual Sugar Sand Festival held in nearby Clearwater Beach and at the Sanding Ovations Master Cup Sand Sculpting Competition on Treasure Island. If you’re looking for some expert tips for your own sandcastle building, you should read our previous post on that topic.
THINGS TO DO
So many things to do, so little time to do them all! That’s okay, you’ll just have to come back year after year and try something new each time you’re here. The Beach Welcome Center is a great local resource when it comes to planning your Indian Rocks Beach vacation to-do list. The friendly staff can offer advice on restaurants, shopping, and the best things to do. Discounted tickets to area attractions are available here, too. Browse through the website business categories or use the Guide to Tampa Bay Beaches tool to view local dining, things to do, and shopping options during your stay.
Forget about an overcrowded, overly commercialized shoreline dotted with high-rise hotels and buildings that block your views of the beach. Indian Rocks Beach vacation rentals and condo complexes are not going to impede your views of the Gulf of Mexico waters, white-sand beaches, and nightly sunsets that sink into the horizon line.
