The staff of Arbors Seaside Cottages welcomes you and invites you to visit our “Little Piece of Heaven”. Our top location, amazing beaches, cozy cafes and exceptional restaurants, make our cottages on Indian Rock Beach a favorite for seasonal guests.

We’re located on a very special “barrier island” along the Gulf of Mexico and, like our neighboring barrier islands, waterfront property faces either the Gulf or the Intercoastal Waterway. At some points along this narrow piece of land you can view both bodies of water.

The Arbors Seaside Cottages micro-resort is directly on the Gulf of Mexico.

Now known as a quaint,  “old Florida” community, Indian Rocks Beach was initially developed as a beach front vacation spot and it is now very popular with all ages. You won’t find a cavern of “high rises” in Indian Rocks Beach but an array of more traditional locally owned shops, cafes, motels, cottages and condominiums.

We are proud of our rather “sleepy” appearance, but Indian Rocks Beach is also home to some of the best known restaurants along the Gulf Coast, and it holds an Arts and Crafts Festival every November and April. The city’s tourist population, especially in the winter months, is one of its greatest assets. Interestingly, the summer and fall months are rapidly becoming nearly as popular as the peak winter months. Our weather in September and October is simply fantastic.

Our easily accessible beaches and intercoastal waterways provide an array of enjoyable activities for residents and visitors alike. Whether you golf, swim, fish, boat. shop or just sunbathe there are an endless number of amenities available for your pleasure. Deanna and our guest relations team at Arbors Seaside Cottages will help you enjoy all the amenities!

We’re mere minutes from Clearwater Beach, St. Petersburg Beach and nearly a dozen other gulf beach communities on the “barrier islands”.  And you can get to Tampa, Bush Gardens and the Zoo in about 30 minutes.

Our cottages offer more that the expected standard amenities.  Flat panel tvs, wi-fi in every room, free use of washers and dryers, full kitchens, European quality linen, etc.
