About Tanja Pluess Utting
Hi! We are Mike and Tanja, an English-Swiss couple who fell in love with Clearwater Beach many years ago and who recently moved to sunny Florida with the plan to retire. At the moment though, we are still working, raising our children and building up our vacation rental business. Our mission is to offer our guests clean, upscale, well-equipped and tastefully decorated vacation homes in quiet and safe Clearwater North Beach!
Tanja Pluess Utting purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Tanja Pluess Utting chose Clearwater Beach
We fell in love with the property and knew it fitted perfectly with our vacation rental philosophy. Right at the beach access (number 3) and in the safe North Beach residential area. You can't beat the location!
What makes this Cottage unique
Proximity to the beach! Idyllic, residential neighborhood! Charming Floridian Beach House & Cottage. Perfect for family get togethers! If House and Cottage are booked together, '32 Steps to the Beach' can sleep 8 to 10 guests. The Cottage is a cozy, upscale and attractive alternative to a overpriced hotel room!

Perfect beach cottage!
We had a wonderful vacation! The cottage was amazing, perfect for a couple. It is clean, fully equipped with everything you need and super cute! It truly is 32 steps from the beach which I loved! We would definitely stay here again.
We loved the cottage- it was clean and close to the beach. We would’ve liked the AC to be bigger- didn’t cool as much as we would’ve liked but overall we we very happy and would stay there again!
Great location for small family!
We enjoyed staying at the Cottage which was a perfect location and great size for our small family of three. We had everything we needed, it was quite convenient and yet out of all of the craziness so that we had time to unwind and relax. Phenomenal beach access that cannot be beaten for any time walks or a day on the sand. We will be back, highly recommend!
Nice cottage and convenient to the beach
We really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, covered parking, close proximity to the beach and availability of beach chairs and umbrellas. Everything was clean and well maintained. Thanks
Dear Lance, Thank you so much for leaving us such a nice review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at The Cottage and hope you will visit us again. Warmly, Tanja
Cute cottage steps from beach!!
Mike and Tanja were great hosts! I would highly recommend this cottage and would book again next time I visit. You will not be disappointed. It it literally steps to the beautiful beach.
Dear Van, Thank you so much for your kind feedback, we highly appreciate it! It was a pleasure sharing our home with you and we hope you will visit us again. All the best. Warmly, Tanja
Cute private cottage in great location
What a great place to stay for a short vacation. This was our first trip to Clearwater as we typically vacation in Siesta Key, which would not accommodate our new puppy. We were shocked at how close the cottage was to the beautiful white sandy beach. We enjoyed dinner each evening on the private patio between the house and our cottage., after using the new gas grill. The availability of the washer and dryer along with a convenient outside shower and hose to rinse of our pup after a day at the beach was fantastic. We also appreciated the well stocked shed, utilizing the sand chairs, umbrella, and cart to transport it all across the street. The cottage itself may be small, but had everything we needed. Well equipped kitchen. Clean, cute and efficient. We cant wait to return to our new favorite Florida vacation spot.
Dear Carol, We are so delighted that you fell in love with Clearwater Beach and our cute Cottage! The location is indeed hard to beat and the award-winning beach is breathtaking...Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We enjoyed having you as our guests and look forward to your next visit! Warmly, Tanja
