About Capt. Al or Gayle
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. Capt.Al is the reservation agent and property manager for this property and others in Clearwater Beach. Originally from New Jersey, and remember enjoying my youth at the Jersey Shore, I always wanted to live in Florida. Now a local in Clearwater Beach, it will be may pleasure to show you around, take you to the best Tiki Bars, and maybe out on the boat. Here we all enjoy a great beach lifestyle with warm water, congenial neighbors, great seafood, and vibrant local beach flavor. Capt.Al
Capt. Al or Gayle purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Capt. Al or Gayle chose Clearwater Beach
While most older hotels have been torn down for the new expensive high rise hotels, the owners of these last few blocks beach side decided to renovate and turn the beach cottages and beach houses into vacation rentals. Here you feel like times gone by where neighbors sit on the porch, have a drink, invite you over, and you can walk around and enjoy this historic neighborhood.
What makes this Cottage unique
Just a stumble to the beach, tiki bars, resturants on the beach, and no streets to cross.. Avoid the traffic and congestion in the new modern south beach. Yet only 5 blocks walk to Pier 60 and the Marina district. Step out of your newly remodeled beach apartment and experience the beach like a local, not a hotel tourist. Enjoy a designer kitchen with state of art appliances and save a ton no taking the kids out to eat 3 times a day. and hey, a full size fridge for the beer.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Absolutely wonderful place and hosts!
My 4 friends and I stayed at this place for 4 nights and couldn't have had a better experience. The place was so cute and functional and had all the amenities we needed for a beach vacation. The location was incredible, we were less than a30-second walk to the beach front! In addition to the house, we had access to a hot tub, bikes, all the beach chairs and towels we could need and even a day-long boat trip to remote islands led by the host Captain Al. This last part was the best by far. We got a personalized boat tour all around the edges of Clearwater and the host was so welcoming! I cannot say enough good things about this listing. Absolutely loved every second of this stay.
Dear Grace and Friends:
Thank you for your FIVE STAR review of Pineapple Beach Apartment at Cottages of Clearwater. Glad to hear you couldn't have had a better experience, enjoyed the hot tub, extra towels, bikes and beach chairs. It was my pleasure to show you around the beautiful islands off the coast of Clearwater on the boat trip. Appreciate all you very kind words.

Will never stay there again
Not sure why you felt like you had poor service. Can't find any text, calls or emails through VRBO during your stay. I am always available along with the house keepers to assist.
Cozy hotel like place to stay
The pineapple cottage was close to the beach and was good for one night. Captain Al was a great property manager. There were a things that need to be noted for upcoming visitors though. My kids knew about the pool, but we were unaware that it was a community pool that closed at 5pm. My wife and i wanted to try the hot tub at night but it wasnt open either, nor durring the day. The cottage has one window unit in living room so when in bed do not close bedroom doors or it will get hot in the bedroom. Our refrigerator did not work, captain Al brought us coolers with ice to hold us over for the one night we stayed. There was a porch to sit at on street side but the door in the pic is not the door to get to porch lol, it is outside around the corner a bit. This was more of a hotel feel than the usual vrbos we stay at. Other places have had seasonings, coffee, some dry goods, this place did not have much of any of that, just a room and the tools to make what you want. We overall enjoyed our stay but i think we will look more at family owned vacation homes in the future. Thank you!
Dear Ryan and Family:
Thanks for letting other travelers know the Pineapple beach apartment is close to the beach and good for one night. Appreciate the kind words about Capt.Al and that you felt he is a great property manager. The pool closes at 5:00, sorry for disappointment but we do not make the hours, and the hot tub is by reservation and if you had read the online hospitality section or the in room welcome package it states that it is locked when not in use and you need to make a reservation. Yep, the brand new $1600 Whirlpool refrigerator went down, but the small refrigerator kept your groceries cold. When I noticed you had 50 cans of beer for the many guests you invited over for your one saturday night party venue, I went to the store and got you two coolers and lots of ice. Then your wife asked for me to give you a discount on the room, which I really could not do for a one night rental, hence the less than usual 5 star review. This clearly is a beach apartment and not the family owned
vacation home you were expecting. for your one Saturday night party venue. We are glad you overall enjoyed you stay and we hope future guests ;understand the Pineapple Beach Apartment is a 2 bedroom beach apartment that rents for as little as one night, really close to the beach and is a self catering holiday rental, not stocked with food.

Located beachside of Mandalay Ave, about 200 steps to beach with no streets to cross.
Clearwater Beach is rated best beach in USA. A great walking town, you do not need a car. Pineapple Beach Apartment is just 5 blocks from the Tourist Hub Pier 60 you are in the quiet, old florida district with cottages and older remodeled 1925 homes. No big day tripper parking lots, keeps the Cottage District quiet and more homey. All Cottages are beachside so you just walk down the street and your on the sand.
