3 Really Good Reasons to Stay Right on the Gulf of Mexico
Updated June 2020
Sometimes the hardest part of planning a vacation is deciding where you want to stay. Narrowing down your Indian Rocks Beach 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, Florida are located 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. The good news is that whichever you choose, you'll still be close and convenient to the other. Win-win!
Today we make the case for the advantages of choosing a Gulf-front Indian Rocks 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 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 whole 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.
Of course there are other amenities specific to your Gulf-front vacation rental or condo, so be sure to take you make the most of the outdoor areas, grills, tennis courts, and all the other conveniences that are available to you and your family.
2. The Gulf of Mexico is only steps away.
Having the Gulf of Mexico waters right outside your Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental opens up a world of possibility for you and your family. This is especially true for those who want to access the beach as often as possible. It's perfect for the avid seashell hunters who want to get an early start each and every day and for those who enjoy daily beach walks.
The convenience of being able to walk right back to your vacation rental for a lunch break, to give the kids an afternoon nap or some quiet time in the air-conditioned comfort of your rental, or for everyone to get a reprieve from the sun and sand for a while—you just cannot beat the benefits of staying beachfront on the Gulf of Mexico.
You can look right out your window or step out onto your balcony and see what the day's beach conditions look like, where the tide level is, how many people are out on the sand, and so much more. Best of all, you can stay in or go out and enjoy it all! 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 awesome playground for 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.
