What a treat to leave the snow and ice of Missouri behind for a weekend away in this adorable cottage! From the charming decor to the beautiful trees shading the yard, this place is just what we needed to relax and unwind during the busy holiday season. We spend one afternoon across the bridge in Clearwater, lounging on the beach, walking Pier 60 and shopping. We also made a trip to Raymond James Stadium to watch the Buccaneers take on our San Francisco 49ers. It was such an easy drive and our team won! We did some shopping at the Bay Street mall afterward --- great stores and a cute outdoor area with lots of good restaurants. We had breakfast at Wildflower Cafe ---Twice! We might have gotten out and done more had the beds at the cottage not been so comfy and inviting. We fell in love with the town and the sweet purple house and can’t wait to return. We so appreciate the Patterson’s friendship, generosity and hospitality. Ryan, Hayley and Macauley

No surprises. The pictures well represent this property. Despite being a century-old, the property is very comfortable and lots of space. We recommend checking out the local neighborhood and sipping coffee on the pier.

What a great place to stay! The cottage is so clean and provides everything you need for a comfortable stay - right down to beach towels! There is an awesome screened in outdoor seating area that is a great place to relax, read a book and unwind. The bedrooms are both furnished with very comfortable beds for a great nights sleep. The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need to cook a meal from muffin tins to a crock pot! The home is very tastefully decorated and I must say again VERY clean! The house is located minutes from the beautiful Clearwater Beach, great restaurants and fun activities. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

My husband and his siblings stayed here in for a long weekend and were very happy with our experience. The cottage is charming and roomy! It provides all the amenities and comforts of home. We loved the outdoor space and décor. The kitchen is fully functional and easy to navigate and the Jack and Jill bath is VERY convenient for a multi-guest stay. On my evening run I was truly astounded at the beautiful surrounding neighborhood. There is also a stunning park with a pier just a short walk from the cottage that provides an unobstructed view of the sunset. Simply beautiful. We had an excellent time. Thanks for making all of these efforts for your guests to feel comfortable and relaxed!

This home is truly a charming cottage in an historic, safe neighborhood. They use a keyless entry, which is great because you aren't always searching for an extra set of keys. (There was a slight kink in the system during our stay, but Derek took care of the issue in less than 5 minutes.) The home is within walking distance of a Publix and a few chain restaurants, but within driving distance of so many other great places. The beds were the MOST COMFORTABLE beds I have ever slept in, and the house was IMMACULATE. Two suggestions: 1. Include another laminate that shows details the cable system. (There are arrows on the remotes, but sometimes a "written" card is more helpful.) 2. There are labels that tell you not to turn something off or unplug a specific plug. It might be helpful to explain why. (That's just my OCD kicking in.) Beautifully restored and maintained! Pride of ownership is evident and Derek and Jennifer were very quick to respond to all questions.

First Time in Vacation Rental - Won't Be the Last!
What a great week! We loved the Cottage. Now that we've figured everything out and where the good beaches are, we wish we had another week. This was the first time we've traveled and not stayed in a resort. We definitely preferred staying at the Cottage; it felt like home. We had pizza twice at Cristinos and would recommend it to future renters. I enjoyed getting up early in the morning and having coffee on the porch and watching the lizards! Your Cottage is charming and very comfortable. Thanks for the great vacation!

Lasting Memories Made....
What a great place to spend time with family! Thanks you so much for allowing us to stay at your home and help us build lasting memories with our kids. We spent most of our time at the beach. We drove to Tradewinds in St.Pete Beach so the kids could play on the water slide in the ocean and on land. Little pricey, but the kids had fun. We will be back!

Perfect Spot to Stay During Children's Swim Meet!
What a great time! The Cottage is close to the Long Center Pool (which we came to for our swim meet) as well as the beach. We immediately felt "at home" in the Cottage and loved being able to rest and eat here rather than always going out. We did enjoy Cristinos our first night in town - yummy! The pizza was fabulous! We also enjoyed Frenchys on Clearwater Beach - fun atmosphere for the whole family with wonderful live entertainment (Reggae the night we were there)! It was great having a fully functional kitchen with all the supplies (especially the blender- we made lots of smoothies). Overall, the Cottage was absolutely wonderful and exceeded all we were expecting. Each day we took time to enjoy the screened porch as well as the back patio and found the area to be so serene and peaceful, we will definitely be back!

The Purple Cottage in Paradise
The Purple Cottage in Paradise
The purple cottage was like no other place we have ever vacationed. It's unique, cozy and relaxing. The master bedroom was like sleeping "on a cloud". There is a second bedroom across the hall with a flat screen TV. There were 2 bathrooms (so we did not have to share). We woke some mornings and drank fresh brewed coffee from the kitchen in the lanai filled with colorful and comfortable outdoor furniture. A cool breeze overhead from the ceiling fan was the finishing touch. Other mornings, we drove 4 blocks to Starbucks and enjoyed coffee at the Pier. We were able to make a great breakfast every morning because the kitchen has every accessories you need, all you need is the food to prepare. Then off to the beach, only 3 minutes away where we found 3 fantastic, fun places to hangout. The first was Shephards Beach. We enjoyed listening to a great band, eating fantastic food and drinking tropical drinks. The best part was that we were only steps away from the beach. The second place we enjoyed was Palm Pavilion Inn. They had phenomenal service, the best “fish tacos” we’ve ever had, great tropical drinks, live music and a great view of the entire beach. Our third place we spent time was at Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill. This unique beach bar had the hottest and most unusual Jalapeño poppers (you have to try them). This was our favorite place for Pina Coladas. The Palm Pavilion and Frenchy’s are within 100yards of each other and share a long, white sandy beach. After a fun day at the beach or enjoying one of our favorite hangouts, we loved coming back to the purple cottage, relaxing on the couch and watching cable TV including Netflix. Wireless internet was a nice touch. On days when we didn’t eat dinner out, we grilled in the fenced in backyard. It was wonderful! There were chairs, a patio table and a big umbrella. It was the best Florida vacation we have ever taken. When we come back again, the only place we would ever consider staying is at the purple cottage.

Nice property. Convenient to many things including beach which was within walking distance. Home was well stocked with coffee and other kitchen items and was clean. Air conditioning worked well.

About the owner: This is our third home that we have made available for rent; the first in Clearwater. Our other two properties, in Branson, MO, have been a great success and over the past 6 years we have truly discovered what makes our renters happy in our homes. We are both from the Joplin/Springfield, Missouri area and have lived there all of our lives.
Why the Owner Chose Clearwater:
We ABSOLUTELY adore the Clearwater area. We searched for years to find just the right place that we would feel comfortable calling our home away from home. We knew this house was 'the one' when we saw it in January 2013. The quiet, historic neighborhood and the huge, beautiful trees make this a place that we just cannot wait to come back home to!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We fell in love with the little purple house under the oak trees at first sight. We love being just minutes to the beach and boating; however, we're not so crazy about being stuck in the hustle and bustle of big cities! We enjoy peace and quiet and not having to deal with noise outside our windows, especially on vacation! This property fits the bill .
