Overview

About the property

House on Beach, Heated Pool, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

RIGHT ON THE BEACH! SEASIDE COTTAGE - 5 minutes south of Clearwater Beach and minutes to St. Petes Beach.

Come and relax in our beautifully redecorated and totally refurbished 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, 2 story gulf front beach house that sleeps 8. The house is well equipped with newer mattresses and linens and a newly renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and new bathroom with double vanity and glass shower doors.

Our property is right on the beach, not across the street and it's the type of place where you can set up on the beach in the morning and go back and forth between the pool, home, washroom or come back and forth for drinks and snacks all day. It's about 50 steps from the home to the sand!

With our property, you have the luxury of your own home, not a highrise/elevator, which is located right on the beach with a private pool! It's rare to find a stand alone home on the beach with a pool, especially if you really don't want to stay in a highrise condo. Our property has 5 units in total that share the pool, so it is very quiet and not over crowded.

The balcony upstairs provides extraordinary views of the beach and the pool. Enjoy morning coffee, meals, or cocktails on the patio furniture on the balcony while you enjoy the awesome views! The pool is shared with only 4 other homes and is a pleasure to swim in a heated pool.

Rest peacefully at the end of the day in the 2nd floor master bedroom with all new furnishings including a King size bed with a view of the beach! The 2nd bedroom upstairs has two twin beds and a bunk bed so this room sleeps 4. The upstairs bathroom has a double vanity and with a large glass door shower (no tub). The downstairs bedroom has a Queen size bed, new furniture, mattress, linens and built in cupboards. There is also a 3 pc. bathroom downstairs with a shower stall with glass door that serves the downstairs bedroom.

The newer kitchen is fully equipped with brand new glasses, dishes, cutlery, many small applicances and all furnishings. The living and dining room boasts brand new furniture. The dining area easily seats 8 at the new counter height dining table.

Let the stresses of everyday life slip away as you take in the sights, sounds and smells of the Gulf of Mexico: breathe in the salt air, listen to the waves, and watch the sun fade into the horizon.

We also have a large binder in the home filled with all the info you need on surrounding area, including menus, schedules, tourist info etc.

Come and discover the wonderful secret of Belleair Beach - a quiet, uncrowded beach community of mostly residential units with no high rise complexes. Private yet only minutes away from Clearwater Beach and Pier 60 and Marina, and only 10 miles to St. Petes Beach. You are also only six miles from Caladesi Island, voted one of the best beaches in the U.S.

These barrier islands are just west of Tampa in Pinellas County. The islands have some of the most eclectic communities to be found among beach communities world-wide. They include Clearwater Beach, Island Estates, Sand Key, Belleair Beach, Belleair Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, Madeira Beach, Treasure Island and St. Pete Beach.

These areas are blessed with sandy beaches and natural unspoiled landscapes with clear, sparkling Gulf waters, a subtropical climate, and an abundance of glorious Florida sunshine -- 365 days a year!

Pinellas County's barrier islands are accessed via causeways and bridges and each community has its own unique flavor. Because of the mix of many different cultures, foods, music, and entertainment, life on these islands varies from one island to the next. You can find everything from a relaxed escape from the usual rat race of everyday life, to the exhilarating beat of live music being played at the clubs.

Come and discover what this beautiful area has to offer........you won’t be disappointed.

Address: 2760 Gulf Blvd #1, Belleair Beach, FL 33786

About Nancy Schappert

We are thrilled to be able to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Belleair and hope you enjoy them as well. We have 3 older children and look forward to spending great family vacations at at our new refurbished and redecorated 'Seaside Cottage'! We think it is a perfect spot for young families with grandparents or growing families or retired couples to enjoy a warm and sunny Florida vacation on great beaches. It is a quiet beach, great for walking with lots of great nearby attractions. Clearwater Beach has great nightly busker entertainment and there are many great shops, restaurants within walking or a short driving distance. Also, everything you need is close; shopping, grocery, liquor, great restaurants, botanical gardens, Dunedin Blue Jays Baseball, Tampa sports (Phillies), theater and culture, Busch Gardens and Orlando for Disney and more! We hope that if you choose our home to enjoy your vacation that you will enjoy our home and all amenities, our neighbors and a beautiful area!

Nancy Schappert purchased this house in 2010

Why Nancy Schappert chose Belleair Beach

Belleair Beach is a unique community in that there are no commercial properties nor high rise condominium complexes so the beaches are very private, tranquil and quiet. Our property including the heated pool is shared with 4 other owners so it is very private. In 2013, a $34 million beach restoration was completed which totally restored our beautiful beach for your enjoyment and again in 2018!

With our property, you have the luxury of your own home, not a highrise, which is located right on the beach with a private pool! It's rare to find a stand alone home on the beach with a pool, especially if you really don't want to stay in a highrise condo.

The area in general has so much to offer from quiet sunsets on the beautiful beaches to the hustle of Tampa with all the sports and cultural events. Clearwater, only 1.5 miles north has an awesome beachfront, pier, boating, waterside restaurants, fishing and nightly entertainment on the pier. There is always something going on of interest within a short drive. The area is served by two airports. Allegiant Air which serves the Clearwater/St. Pete airport (only 15 minutes from the cottage) and offers a great value and Tampa International airport. You are also about an 1-1/2 hour drive to Orlando and all the excitement offered there such as Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld.

What makes this house unique

Seaside Cottage is located in a quiet, tranquil setting where you can relax by the pool which is just outside your door or stroll down to the uncrowded beach. The beach home is conveniently located less than a mile from the Belleair Causeway that takes you into Largo which has many shopping areas including fresh food stores, liquor, drugstores and grocery stores. There are also many great restaurants located just across the causeway such as A&E Stakeout Grill, Bonefish Grill and Cody's with great early bird dinner specials (appetizer, entree and desert!) as well as happy hour specials.

The cottage is so close to the excitement of Clearwater Beach and the evening sunset celebration at Pier 60.

Heading south takes you to Indian Rocks beach and one of our favorite restaurants, Guppy's. There are trolleys that run the entire length of the barrier islands. If you like to ride bikes you are not far from access to the Pinellas Trail, a 37 mile greenway corridor linking beautiful parks, coastal areas and neighborhoods. The nice thing is that you don't have to go far to find most anything you are looking for.

The house was very nice and accommodating They acs work great ceiling fans were very helpful and it was nice to have our own private pool. The beach is steps away and it seem like we had our own private beach very quiet. I would definitely recommend this home for vacation and I would definitely stay there again! Thank you Nancy

Nice beach house.

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect and the house was comfortable. This place was nice but wished it would have been a little cleaner. The linens and towels were clean but wish that the bathroom rugs, carpet and floors could have been cleaned before we arrived. The house had enough rooms and beds to accommodate our family of seven. The access to the beach was perfect for our teen kids to walk to and from the house. The kitchen had everything that we needed to cook and the refrigerator worked perfectly. Regarding the upstairs air conditioner it would reset at 83 degrees during the day and night. We were forced to manually overwrite the preset degrees to 75 degrees in order to keep the upstairs bedrooms cool. Regardless of the issues mentioned we enjoyed our stay at Nancy’s place and may consider returning at another time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. I must admit I’m a little surprised about the comment about the cleaning, as most of the reviews as you can see, often comment just how clean the home is. I did speak with the cleaning company and they confirmed they had done a thorough clean. Otherwise, I’m glad your family enjoyed our home.

Loved this place! Very nice house with beautiful beach access!

  • 5 of 5

I was happily surprised how this house actually met the description. It felt so homey, was great to relax and comfortably acomodate 7 people. Very nice and clean place, great area, just steps to the beach. Loved having a pool right outside also.

The beach was beautiful, clean and not with a lot of people. The owner was very responsive to all our needs, very easy to communicate with. We had a wonderful experience, would stay again! Thank you.

Great Family House! Great Family House!

  • 5 of 5

In the title, I repeat myself twice because this is the second year in a row that we have stayed at this location. My wife is already wanting to plan a trip here next year. We love the location... we love the "private" swimming pool... we love the 20 steps to beach... we love the view from the balcony... we love the cleanliness... we love the thoughtfulness of having coloring books & markers for the kids... we love the grill... we love the new beach chairs and beach umbrella. In short, great family house. Thank you.

Great Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This beach house was a great place to spend our week in Bellaire Beach. It is a standalone home in a small complex that shares a pool. There were never more than a couple people at the pool at any one time, and our daughter quickly made friends with some of the other kids there. There was a giant box of beach toys provided, and the beach itself was only a few yards away from the house.

We tend to cook a lot when we go on vacation, and the kitchen in this house was one of the most well-equipped we have ever found. The knives were even sharp (a rarity in rental houses)! The house was very clean and well stocked, and the owner left us some snacks and wine to get our vacation started.

The only downside to this rental is that the bedrooms all face the road, and the upstairs bedrooms in particular had a ton of traffic noise. We've lived in cities before (so we're used to traffic), but the older single-pane windows didn't do anything to muffle the noise. If you're a light sleeper, this might pose a problem.

Nancy, the owner, was very quick to answer questions that we had, and we really appreciated being able to stay here on our vacation.

Beach, BlueJays and Birds!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here with our daughter and 8 month old granddaughter. We came for sun and relaxation and also some BlueJays spring training games! This property fit the bill perfectly and our host was fantastic!! The pictures and description are exactly as described. The property is on the beach side of the road but behind a couple of other homes, however there is a second floor balcony with a view of the ocean as in the pictures, and the beach is just steps away. The pool is right outside the door and nicely heated so our granddaughter could enjoy it! There was a baby floaty toy for her to use in the pool as well.

There was a baby monitor, booster seat, and pack and play for the baby. We purchased a baby bath as there is no bathtub, and Nancy reimbursed us for it! We also were not able to find beach chairs in the pool house and Nancy provided her own personal ones until the other ones could be found. She also provided her own personal sunshade tent so the baby could enjoy the beach. She was very helpful and accommodating. The house is very well equipped and beds very comfortable. We slept like logs!

The neighbourhood is residential and grocery stores and other shopping are a short drive away. Just make sure you have a good list prepared so you don't have to run out for last minute things as there is nothing very close by.

We enjoyed a few of the local restaurants. Guppy's and Crabby Bill's for great fish and seafood, Maggie Mae's for a great breakfast and very family friendly atmosphere, and fantastic pizza from Slyce (free delivery).

Dunedin stadium for the BlueJays games was a 1/2 hour away. We had dinner in Dunedin at a great Mexican restaurant - Casa Tina. Food was fantastic, portions very generous and it was also very family friendly.

The beach was just beautiful, and of course facing west, so every night was a beautiful sunset. All the people in the complex meet at the beach about 1/2 hour before sunset with drink in hand and enjoy the spectacle which is different each night. We did not catch the "green flash" though. Maybe next time! We enjoyed many walks along the beach and of course found some seashells to take home as souvenirs. There were many birds and waterfowl to watch. We enjoyed watching the pelicans diving for food in the ocean.

We wish we could have stayed another week or longer! There is lots to do and see, and we didn't begin to cover it.

Thank you for a great stay Nancy!
