About Tanja

Hi! We are Mike and Tanja, an English-Swiss couple who fell in love with Clearwater Beach many years ago and who hopes to retire one day in sunny Florida. 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 purchased this house in 2014

Why Tanja 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 house 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.

Convenient & Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house and cottage for two weeks at the beginning of August. This was the second year in a row that we rented this house and we are thinking about renting it again next year. Everything works well and it spacious and comfortable, and we couldn't ask to be closer to the beach.

Great house & cottage, Perfect!! Great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time! House was great, beach was great!! Showers could use an update, but they worked fine. Shed with bikes and toys were awesome. Everyone in our group had a great time, very comfortable and so close to the beach! Property was clean. Yes! I recommend highly and we will be back for sure! Enjoyed the area so much, as always. Saw a lot of dolphins, ate at great restaurants (Frenchy's rockaway, Kiku sushi, both yum!!!), did some shopping and walked a lot on the beach and pier area. Saw Winter the dolphin at the area aquarium, very cool!!

Great location in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The location of this house is amazing. Quiet neighborhood and SO close to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay! This house, though not updated, was very clean. I have 2 complaints, however. The washer and dryer are outside and thus were quite dirty. You have to be careful removing the clothes from the washer and placing them in the dryer or they will get dirty. The second issue was the front bedroom by the living area. The walls to create this bedroom were evidently an afterthought and do not extend all the way to the ceiling. Whoever is in that room will have a hard time going to sleep as long as there are people in the living area as the lights and sounds carries over the wall into the room. Overall, we were very pleased and hope to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hello Rhonda! Thank you for your review and thank you for being our guest!. You are right - the neighborhood is great and you can't beat the beach being steps away! The house is an original Florida house built in 1947 and each year some type of renovation takes place to fight the ongoing beach beatings it takes. As the washer and dryer are on the back porch (Old Florida Style) it gets lots of wind kicking up sand etc. during the month of March. The cleaning crew would have been happy to come and wipe that down for you. Not a problem at all and would have only taken them a couple of minutes. The front bedroom was added based on suggestions from our recurring guests as their was a pull out sofa there originally. The feedback that we get is they love how open it feels compared to being in a small box of a room but I can imagine that if others stay up late vs. retiring to their bedrooms it would be noisy even if it wasn't open. Also having the ceiling open is great for airflow. I know when I use the house I put the person that stays up the latest in that room and it works perfectly LOL! Thank you again for the feedback! The Team at 32 Steps to the Sand

Charming house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to escape the New England winter and were very lucky to find this charming house. 32 Steps is located on a corner lot in the residential section of North Clearwater and is directly across the street from the beach access. It's about a one mile walk to restaurants and shops by beach or sidewalk.

The house is very clean and well maintained both inside and out! The decor is colorful and perfect for its beach location. There are 2 master bedrooms which worked for us since we had another couple stay with us. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked most meals ourselves, usually grilling outside in the evenings. The main living area has an open floor plan and is bright and spacious. It was great not to need to take stairs or elevators! We had one rainy day and we entertained ourselves with reading, the provided cable TV, a rented DVD (redbox) and free WIFI.

The landscaping is beautiful and allows for privacy around the large private patio on the side of the house. There is even an outdoor shower where you can rinse off the salt and sand before going into the house!

The property manager was very attentive while not being intrusive. Any questions were promptly answered. We had one small issue with a sticking deadbolt lock that was immedialely taken care of. Thank you dor the great service!

This house is unpretentious and more the way Florida once was before the "McMansions" and hirise condo buildings started to cast their long shadows onto the beach. If you need granite and marble or 1000 thread count sheets in your vacation rental then don't come here - - but for the rest of us who want to have a great family vacation, you can't go wrong here!

I recommend you try this location for your next vacation. I don't think you will be disappointed. Then again, don't make it harder to for us to find availability for our next vacation!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review the house! We are so glad you loved the location as well as the house. I know we enjoy our visits there. I will be sure to tell the gentleman that take care of the grounds that you loved it. And thank you for telling us about the sticky lock so that we could get it taken care of. It's so nice to have guests that let you know when something needs to be greased or whatever so that the property stays as worry free as possible. We are looking forward to having you back again! Thank you again! Regards, The Team at 32 Steps to the Sand

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful retreat to rest, relax and take in the ambience of Clearwater Beach, amps, St Pete and Sarasota. Family gathered from all parts of the US. This property afforded the family to have common space to gather as well as private space. Very well maintained with gorgeous views of the sunset each night. This property offered all amenities we were looking for as we'll as a great location just steps away from the most beautiful beach in Florida. We will definitely be back.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for two weeks and had such a great time. This spacious and clean house is conveniently located across the street from an exclusive beach (only residents) with warm, shallow water good for kids and adults alike, and only a mile from downtown Clearwater Beach where there are some shops and gelaterias.

We ordered takeout from one of several Frenchy's restaurants almost every night, and found a nice health foods market (Nature's Food Patch) 10 minutes away where we did our weekly shopping for breakfast and lunch items.

Last but not least, the management is very accommodating and responsive. We are already planning our next trip to Clearwater Beach and would love to stay in this same house again.
