3 Really Good Reasons to Stay Right on the Gulf of Mexico
Sometimes the hardest part of planning a vacation is deciding where you want to stay. Narrowing down your Gulf Coast vacation rental options is the first place to start. One quick and easy way to do that is to really think about where you want to be. Since Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores are on a barrier island, the choice really comes down to whether you want to be closer to the Gulf of Mexico or the Intracoastal Waterway—the two main bodies of water that flank the island.
Today we make the case for the advantages of choosing a Gulf-front beach vacation rental. Here are three of the biggest reasons why a stay right on the Gulf of Mexico might be the best option for you and your family.
1. Gulf-front vacation rentals offer amazing amenities.
Let's start with the amenities of a Gulf-front rental. In addition to the fact that many accommodations located right on the beach come with some fantastic amenities, let's take it a step further and think about what that really means.
Having the option of both the beach and a pool nearby the beach is a highly attractive amenity for anyone, but particularly for families. The closeness and convenience of having both forms of entertainment right there by your rental makes your vacation a lot easier and a lot less work. No packing up and making a long trek to either place. They're right there waiting for you when you're ready to take full advantage of them, and you can easily switch between the two.
Other Gulf-front amenities to think about include the views that come with your Florida Gulf Beach rental. Choosing something right on the gulf side means that your vacation rental views are going to be amazing! Step onto your waterfront deck and soak up the sights. Think about all of the breathtaking sunsets over the Gulf you get to enjoy, the hours of tranquility you can find sipping your morning coffee or your evening glass of wine, and relishing in the coastal beauty that's right before your eyes every single day of your beach vacation. Ahhh!
2. The Gulf of Mexico is only steps away.
Having the Gulf of Mexico waters right near to your Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores rental opens up a world of possibility for you and your family. This is especially true for the fishermen in your family who want to cast a line in the early morning hours. Or the avid seashell hunters among you who want to get an early start when the conditions are just right.
The beach lovers among you will appreciate the convenience of being able to watch the Gulf of Mexico waters lap the shoreline whenever their hearts desire. The ability to get out and stroll the sands whenever the mood strikes. Or just watch the sun's rays reflect off of the beautiful blue-green waters. What's not to love?
3. The beach is your front yard.
Finally, there's the fact that your front yard is the beach for the duration of your vacation. Everyone knows that the beach is an easy playground for both the kids and kids-at-heart, so being right there makes beach access the best (and easiest) it can be.
No walking long distances lugging all of your beach paraphernalia, no trying to find a parking spot at a beach access—no hassle, no fuss.
Having the beach as your front yard is one of the best benefits of a choosing a Gulf-front accommodation for your Florida beach vacation. You can head back to the beachfront rental whenever you need a bathroom break, a lunch break, when your kids need a nap or just a little break from the sun, sand and water. It's simply perfect for many families. What about yours?
