We spent 3 relaxing weeks at The Blair, one half of a 2-apartment duplex on a single level. The location just can't be beat. The villas sit right on a small bay off the St. John's Sound in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. The beach is a two-block stroll from the front door. A major upside to this property is the property managers. The property had just changed hands prior to our stay and Alex had to deal with some hiccups. He was so responsive and conscientious about fixing even the smallest problem and making our stay perfect.
The property has a lovely waterfront, complete with a Trex dock for launching the kayaks provided by the owner. There is a large picnic table for enjoying dinners cooked on the grill, or breakfast watching a sunrise. The firepit, surrounded by Adirondack chairs, is perfect for evenings of wine and conversation. We had lovely neighbors in the second villa and enjoyed socializing with them on our patio and around the firepit. Dolphins, pelicans, sting rays and a plethora of water birds inhabit the bay, including several bald eagles. The outdoor shower for cleaning off sand, was a great convenience.
The villa itself has a small kitchen, adequate for eating meals if you prefer to eat indoors. The central living space is a nice size with couch and comfortable chairs, with a large screen smart TV. The master bedroom has a comfortable queen bed. Clothing storage is adequate for 2 people on a one- or two-week stay. The second bedroom with 2 twin beds was fine for children. The villa was immaculate when we arrived.
There is one bathroom, but the shower water pressure was terrific, and there was plenty of space for your personal products.
All in all, we are returning next year, without a doubt!
