About John and Sharon Westling
The Cottage is Located on our property but detached from the main residence where we reside. As Hosts we are available for information, directions, suggestions and help.
Why John and Sharon Westling chose Clearwater
Our favorite little town that we highly recommend is Dunedin. Just a few miles and minutes away it is located right on the water. We lived there for 2 years and absolutely loved it! They have many beautiful parks and areas to enjoy a picnic and those sunsets! The Pinellas Trail goes right through the center of Dunedin. There are Cafes to enjoy right on the Pinellas Trail or just a few steps from it. On the 2nd Friday of every month they have their 'Wine and Art Walk' which the shop keepers remain open late and invite you in and treat you like 'family'. You have an opportunity to win wonderful prizes too! Every Saturday they have a Farmer's Market in the park there with wonderful selections to purchase and enjoy.

Best equipped rental we ever stayed in. Very nice hosts. Pretty landscaping. Nice neighborhood with many parks close by.
Our stay at the Cozy Cottage couldn't have been more perfect. We are so grateful to stay with people that love dogs as much as we do and they were so accommodating. It is a pleasant, safe and quiet neighborhood with a beautiful back yard that our St. Bernard could run free in. Thanks so very much. We hope to return soon.
My wife and I loved every minute of our stay!
Being far away from home and felt like at home. It must take more than just well organized kitchen, decoration... it comes when one puts heart and love.
Sharon and John are warmest people in the world. They helped us with any needs we had. My wife wanted to bake a cake for our special occasion, John shared the mixer and other things we needed... and the cake came out just perfect! We couldn’t return all the tools without baking one for our hosts.
I’m not very comfortable with dogs, but Dolly is such a sweet girl. I never seen a dog that doesn’t bark. Happy, elegant and gorgeous dog.
We simply got new friends in Florida!
My wife liked Aloe plant that was right in front of the cottage.And guess what, the “baby Aloe “ was packed for us to take home. Now we have it growing on our deck with such beautiful memories of our stay at Cozy Cottage!
We are definitely will comeback. Beautiful hosts and guite location, close to different beaches , what else one may need when it comes vacation home in Florida. We also enjoyed the fact that it was not humid at all.
We highly recommend the Cozy Cottage for couples or small family.
We would like to thank Sharon and John for all the help, directions and kindness.
We are very grateful for all you did for us !
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
With warmest regards
Viktoriia and Vlad

Such a great little place
My wife and I on a last minute whim decided to go to Florida to visit with friends and celebrate our anniversary of our engagement, which happened on Honeymoon Island. John and Sharon were so accommodating and so easy to work with. We had our cocker spaniel with us and they welcomed all of us with open arms. The hospitality was incredible and the cottage itself was in spectacular shape. It was perfect for a quick getaway and I will definitely keep this spot in mind the next time we vacation in the area.
Quaint cottage ideal for exploring Clearwater
First, Sharon and John were a pleasure to meet. They are friendly, outgoing, and filled with recommendations and places to explore. They are also very accommodating, allowing us free use of their yard for our two dogs to run around or parking in their driveway.
The cottage is conveniently located to nearby amenities (restaurants, highway, beaches, etc.), but set in a residential neighborhood that gives you a feeling of seeing what it'd be like to live like a local.
Though the cottage is very small, it is clean, charming, and decorated in a way that has a welcoming feel to it after a long day of exploring and the landscaping has a cool, tropical vibe with lush plants and flowers growing. Inside, it has everything you'd realistically need, such as high-speed Internet that I was able to use for work purposes, good size TV, comfortable bed, and full kitchen if you plan on cooking.
I recommend giving the cozy cottage a try. If you're looking for something a little different than a standard trip staying in a hotel, you will not regret it.
The perfect cozy beach retreat!
My husband, baby and I stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend to get a break from our normal routine.
We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and cuteness of this cottage!
It was a perfect size and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to save money and eat at our weekend "home," including a stove, oven, microwave, full refridgerator, pots, pans and even plates and glassware!
There was a grocery store less than ten minutes away and it was only about a 15 minute drive to Clearwater Beach!
We went to watch the sunset almost every night and enjoyed being close to Clearwater without having to deal with loud noises and horrible traffic.
The neighborhood is beautiful and friendly and there are some nice nature spots and sitting areas that our family enjoyed venturing to.
One of my favorite parts of this experience was the shower head! It was hard not to shower forever - the water temperature stayed hot for a long time and the pressure and distribution of the water was perfect.
I highly recommend this lovely abode for anyone (single person or couple is best!) looking for some time away that's near the beach and free from the hustle and bustle of your average hotel (with a lot more amentities)!
