                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Welcome and thanks for visiting my profile. I am Capt. Al , my nickname because I am on the boat most of the Summer enjoyng the beautiful waterways and islands around Clearwater Beach.Originally from New Jersey I grew up near the shore and always desired to live near the beach. When you come to visit I hope to show you around this beautiful little island and the things I enjoy most. See you soon. Capt. Al

                  Why the Owner Chose Clearwater Cottages:
                  In the condo craze, most of the cottages and old wood hotels were torn down. There are just a hand full of old cottages left in Clearwater. When you vacation here, you feel like staying at beach cottage like when you were a kid. Feels a lot different than the high rise hotels and condo resorts. If you like fancy shmancy please say at the Hilton or Sandpearl Hotels, but if you want to experience that Old Florida Charm, the Cottages are for you. These houses were designed OLD FLORIDA DISTRICT by the Beach by Design planning committee.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Sit on the front porch and watch the never ending excitement at the famous Shipwreck Bar. Fun loving Tourist stumble in and out all day for photo shoots. When you tired of that , go sit on the back porch and watch the sunset. Many famous Tiki Bar and Resturants are just 2-3 blocks walk on the beach from Clearwater Cottages.
