Make a cup of coffee in the full size kitchen and just walk down the block and enjoy the morning surf. At night, take a cold drink out of your full size refrigerator, and take our coolers and beach chairs down to the beach to watch the sunset.

The children can walk back and forth to the beach unsupervised as there are no streets to cross and you are in a quiet safe area. The shared backyard has several gas BBQ grills and and a covered Gazebo with lounge chairs and tables.

This rental unit is part of Clearwater Cottages , a group of little houses built in 1920. The Cottages have been a family vacation retreat for almost 100 years. There are one, two and three bedroom cottages in this group and share a common backyard with Gazebo, lounge chairs, and several BBQ grills. These rentals are perfect for large families with children and pets who want a small house with a full kitchen and backyard. Recently renovated with tile floors, beachy furniture, they remind you a vacation at the beach when you were a kid. They are a great value and located between Villas of Clearwater and Surfside Condos, both twice the price . Well Heeled travelers who like condos and expensive hotels like the SandPearl and Hilton, both a few blocks away should stay there as we cannot meet the picky expectations of snooty guests and rather have fun loving people enjoy our properties. Your friendly on site manager will assist you in having a great beach vacation. We do not just leave the keys, like the condo rentals, we are there for all your vacation needs. Be nice and Capt. Al may even take you out on the boat, and free use of bicycles, lounge chairs, coolers, and fishing poles

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About: Capt. Al, the Property Manager, reservaton agent, and Cottage Counselor is originally from New Jersey, and a camp counselor at Club Getaway. Having enjoyed living close the Jersey Shore my dream has always been to live at the beach in Florida. For 30 years I have enjoyed this beautiful little island. Here we get to swim in the Gulf of Mexico as the sun sets, enjoy local fresh fish, and have great congenial neighbors who are friendly and enjoy the same 'Salt Life' . When you come to visit, Capt. Al and his first mate, Karen will be happy to show you around.

                  Why Clearwater Cottages:
                  These are the very last real beach cottages left in Clearwater Beach so close to the beach. Designated as the Old Florida District, by the City's Beach by Design, they give you the feel of Old Florida, in day 's gone by.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Beach Cottages are fun. Cute little houses right by the sea. No cold elevators and halls to walk down. No stuffy neighbors. Just walk out the door and a few hundred steps and you enjoy one of the best beaches in America. Most are much larger than the rooms called cottages in the large older homes in the neighborhood. Most are real little houses or a duplex with full new kitchens , modern appliances, and entertainment systems in most bedrooms.
