"Just finished our first stay at the Beach Cottage & it was a GREAT experience.
The owner (Natalie) was great in answering any of our questions prior to booking, confirming deposits & payments were received, and overall making sure we were please before, during & after our stay. We had info & menus in a nice basket on the table when we arrived. It was very reassuring that she was so accessible if we needed her.
The Cottage itself is in a great location. The beach is literally about 50 yards from the front door! The neighborhood is very quiet & safe. My wife & daughter stayed in one night & relaxed while my son & I went to a Rays game. They felt totally safe here. Tampa, Clearwater, etc. are all about a 20-30 minute drive away. The Tampa City Pass is great if you have kids as you get tickets to 5 attractions for $100/person. If you go to at least 2 of them, you end up saving big $. Fabulous dining- Seaside (5 min walk) had delicious food (loved the lobster tacos and live music on the patio). The Conch (5 min drive) lived up to all the hype on this website. Hands down the best meal of our entire trip. Everything from the fritters, to the coconut shrimp had the "Wow factor". For breakfast the Friendly Bar (5 min walk) had awesome breakfast sandwiches and portions were huge. For dessert I'd suggest the Candy Kitchen (also 5 min walk) for homemade ice cream and some cool retro candy. For a day of shopping, the John's Pass Boardwalk area was only 10 minutes away. Lots of shops and dining in that area.
Now lets talk about the house & beach. The house was so clean and bright & is exactly as you see it in the pictures. Big, comfy L-shaped couch, TV's in both bedrooms, very comfortable beds - it felt like home the entire week. Having a laundry was nice as we could pack less & always have fresh beach towels. Kitchen was fully stocked - all utensils, small appliances were there for us. The back patio gave us a place to sit out in the sun, relax and grill up a nice dinner. The Cottage has a handy beach wagon, umbrellas, chairs, small cooler a big beach bag - everything for a fun beach day was there for us! Afterwards the outdoor shower helped wash away the sand and quickly cool off. The beach was gorgeous. Soft sand, not busy (pretty much locals), dolphins swimming by, and sunsets you could put on a postcard. The owner + location + beach + quality of this location = the perfect place for our family. I can see why so many come back. We will likely be one of those too!"

"Love this place! The house is very cute and clean. Sue has all of the comforts of home from a crock pot to wine glasses. With so many houses nearby, it's surprisingly private. The house can barely be seen from the beach and it feels like your own little secret. Waking up in the morning and having coffee outside, looking out to the ocean was amazing. It was very quiet and perfect. We stayed for a week with our 3 year old and 1 year old and they had a great time playing in the sand for the first time. Walking distance to a few good restaurants, too! We'll be back!!"

"Don't know where to start! From the start, the House Manager, Bob, was an incredible help. He made sure all accommodations were to our liking, he even called mid week to be sure all was well.
From the second we drove up in the drive way, we knew we were "home". The photos were exactly as the house was, PERFECT.
Beautiful appointed rooms, well stocked kitchen and beautiful outdoor living area. Being so close to the ocean was a blessing. The perfect vacation!!"
