About Capt. Al
Thanks for visiting the Owners profile. Capt.Al and Karen have managed Clearwater Cottages since 2005. Karen from California and Capt.Al from New Jersery are very fortunate to enjoy living in Clearwater Beach. Here we enjoy swimming in warm clean water, enjoy boating in summer, and have great congenial neighbors. When you come to visit, we hope to show you around, and help you have a great beach vacation.
Capt. Al purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Capt. Al chose Clearwater Beach
Located in the Old Florida District, the Pink Dolphin Cottage is one of the last real beach cottages left on the beach side of Mandalay Ave. You can walk around and enjoy the old feel of Clearwater, before all the historic hotels were torn down for the new High Rise Hotels. This house is just 100 steps from the beach with other cute little houses . Here you can enjoy your own little beach house just steps from the beach.
What makes this Cottage unique
Less than a minute from the sand, you and the kids can walk back and forth to the beach all day with no streets to cross, no elevators to waste time in, and you won't need to dress up to go through the hotel lobby. And you wont have to walk down to the parking garage , punch the time ticket meter. You park right in front, and guest what , it's till free. You will save a ton feeding the kids in the your Gourmet Galley Kitchen, and two stainless steel refrigerators. Backyard has wood deck, tin roof gazebo and dining table.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Family fun stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the kids loved being so close to the beach. We didn’t have a phone number for Capt. Al when we got there, but one of our neighbors gave it to us and helped us out. We will definitely stay here again if we come to Clearwater!
Great cottage close to the beach!
Captain Al and Karen were great! They were very informative on things to do and places to see! A nice little cottage for a family and kids as it’s super close and convenient to get to the beach!

Clearwater beach pink cottage
Excellent location and very accommodating host. Only thing is the cottage is small for a family of 6 or more although it can sleep 7.
Great distance to the gulf. Cozy, old Florida charm, updated kitchen, private courtyard deck.
Clean, lush tropical landscape, tons of beach equipment to use, steps away from beach, includes everything u could possibly need. Staff are accommodating & friendly. Highly recommend. Several cottages to choose from, something for everyone can be found here. Years of memories would have been lost if not for the staff informing me of my USB card left behind. Many thanks!!

Beach lover paradise. Your vacation cottage is just 100 steps to the sand, best cleanest beach in USA. Walk to best Tiki Bars right on the Gulf of Mexico. Your vacation cottage was named Old Florida District by Beach by Design, the last few blocks left in Clearwater Beach with historic beach cottages, and remodeled older homes with vacation rental apartments. Away from the noisy tourist district, yet only 5 blocks walk to Famous Pier 60 with nighttime free entertainment.
