Overview

Clearwater Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1,2,3 bedroom Beach Cottages steps from the beach

Choose from 1,2,3,bedroom real beach cottages or 2 and 3 bedroom Cool Beach Apartments all on beach side of Mandalay Ave. Families have enjoyed these Beach Cottages for 100 years. Laid back large families with children and pets will have a great beach vacation. All remodeled and some with high end kitchens with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, and all have Flat TVs with DVD in all rooms.

Shared Key West style back yard has wood party deck , Tin Roof Gazebo, Weber BBQ grill, bicycles and Large shade trees and tropical plants. Guest love to gather in the fence yard after a day at the beach. Children make new friends and parents can watch children from the cottages. Like going to camp at the beach.

Make a cup of coffee in the full size kitchen and just walk down the block and enjoy the morning surf. At night, take a cold drink out of your full size refrigerator, and take our coolers and beach chairs down to the beach to watch the sunset.

The children can walk back and forth to the beach unsupervised as there are no streets to cross and you are in a quiet safe area. The shared Key West Style backyard has Weber gas BBQ grills and and a covered Tin Roof Gazebo, wood deck with chairs and tables with large Tropical plants and trees, a favorite spot for a cup of coffee in the morning, or great for private parties at night.

For half the price of the condos next door, you get a large spacious rental unit and no elevators to waste time in.

This rental unit is part of Clearwater Cottages , a group of little houses built in 1920. The Cottages have been a family vacation retreat for almost 100 years. There are one, two and three bedroom cottages in this group and share a common backyard with Gazebo, lounge chairs, and several BBQ grills. These rentals are perfect for large families with children and pets who want a small house with a full kitchen and backyard. Recently renovated with tile floors, beachy furniture, they remind you a vacation at the beach when you were a kid. They are a great value and located between Villas of Clearwater and Surfside Condos, both twice the price . Well Heeled travelers who like condos and expensive hotels like the SandPearl and Hilton, both a few blocks away should stay there as we cannot meet the picky expectations of snooty guests and rather have fun loving people enjoy our properties. Your friendly on site manager will assist you in having a great beach vacation. We do not just leave the keys, like the condo rentals, we are there for all your vacation needs. Be nice and Capt. Al may even take you out on the boat, and free use of bicycles, lounge chairs, coolers, and fishing poles

Why not enjoy the same beach as the expensive hotels and condos for half the price.

Our Licensed Group Resort Dwellings have high level of cleanliness and provide excellent customer service.

Clerical Management by central reservation office and we book for many properties in Clearwater Beach.

About Clearwater Cottages, a Licensed Group Vacation Rental Dwelling.

Most of the real beach cottages in this licensed group vacation rental are 100 years old and not perfect.like a new condo, but a fun, funky , beach house, , thin hallways, unusual size rooms, but all new bathrooms, kitchens, air conditioners, and beachy furniture. We cannot and do not want snooty, upscale, fussy, demanding guests. Please stay at the Hilton, Sandpearl or expensive condos directly in front of the Cottages. Wanna be beach bum for week, relive Old Florida, sit on the porch have a drink, let the kids and pets run around and you will have real beach vacation.

About Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info.

Capt. Al, the Property Manager, reservaton agent, and Cottage Counselor is originally from New Jersey, and was a camp counselor at Club Getaway. Having enjoyed living close the Jersey Shore my dream has always been to live at the beach in Florida. For 30 years I have enjoyed this beautiful little island. Here we get to swim in the Gulf of Mexico as the sun sets, enjoy local fresh fish, and have great congenial neighbors who are friendly and enjoy the same 'Salt Life' . When you come to visit, Capt. Al and his first mate, Karen will be happy to show you around.

Why Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info. chose Clearwater Beach

These are the very last real beach cottages left in Clearwater Beach so close to the beach. Designated as the Old Florida District, by the City's Beach by Design, they give you the feel of Old Florida, in day 's gone by. These cottages are in North Beach in a quaint area with cute beach houses .

What makes this cottage unique

Beach Cottages are fun. Cute little houses right by the sea. No cold elevators and halls to walk down. No stuffy neighbors. Just walk out the door and a few hundred steps and you enjoy one of the best beaches in America. Most are much larger than the rooms called cottages in the large older homes in the neighborhood. Most are real little houses or a duplex with full new kitchens , modern appliances, and entertainment systems in most bedrooms.

Perfect Beach Location

  • 5 of 5

If you love the beach, don't want to rent a car, and don't need lots of fancy amenities, you will love Clearwater Beach Cottages. We stayed in the Dolphin cottage which is very quaint-it was a little tight with 2 adults and three teens, however. I'd say that particular cottage comfortably sleeps 4 adults or 2 adults and three small children. Out back there is a shared tiki-themed deck with a grill, hot tub, and seating for outdoor meals. We were literally steps away from the beautiful beach, and beach towels, umbrellas, and chairs are provided. Clearwater Beach itself is a great beach town, with lots of restaurants, bars, and shops all within walking distance. It is a very busy place in March, so we found it convenient (and less expensive) to shop for groceries at the local Publix and cook some meals at the cottage. Thanks to Captain Al and Karen for your hospitality!

Thank you captain AL and Karen for all your hard work and making us feel so welcome!

Great Value and Kids had tons of Fun

  • 5 of 5

My family of 2 seniors, 2 adult children and 5 little children think Beach Cottages are Fun. We had a blast. Just past a few house we were right on the sand with no streets or long walks and got to watch the best sunsets every night. With a bunch of little kids having to get to the beach with all the chairs and toys in just about a minute is a great experience. Check in was a breeze the friendly staff at the business center, and parking was just out front. We were met by a friendly housekeeper who showed us around, orientated us to the beach, resturants and showed us around the cottage, showed us the wi fi password and asked if we needed any additional linens for all the beds, 5 in the three bedrooms. The Hideaway Beach Rental was spotless as the floors were just mopped prior to our check in and had all the linens, utensils, bedding, full kitchen and flat screen TV s a advertised. The common backyard with the wood deck, and superspa were there as advertised. We had plenty of room and with three bedrooms everyone had their own space. The full kitchen saved us a lot of money as we had nine people to feed. A little more counterspace would be nice, but not really a big issue. The rooms did have full closets and the master bedroom with the walk in closet had pack n play, child high chair, fence to block off a room, extra blankets and even 2 roll away beds. The owners knew what to have for big families. Oh and did I mention they even allowed our pet dog. I cannot say enough nice things about Karen and Capt. Al as they were always there if there was anything we needed. We would see the Captain on the beach most nights, enjoying himself as much as us. Pier 60 was just a five block walk with nightly entertainment which we all enjoyed, and most restuarants were just a 10 minute walk or the Pizza place with benches right by the beach was the block over. We took advantage of the free pool passes and the children enjoyed the water slides at the pool are about 2 blocks walk. We chose this property because of the many positive reviews, great value and ability to sleep a family of 9 and bring a pet. Yep, Beach Cottages are Fun and we will be back next summer.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

For the first time we stayed at Clearwater Beach cottages and had a great time. Our children enjoyed the close walk to the beaches and all of the activities at Pier 60. The Hideaway Cottage was a perfect fit for our family. It was welcoming, spacious and close to everything that we wanted to do. Captain Al and Karen (and the guy at the motel) were very welcoming and helpful. We would like to come back in the future. Thank you for the great stay! The Rentmeesters
