Clearwater Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms,5 beds 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-10)Beach Apartment, Clearwater Cottages

Daily rentals are okay at Hideaway Beach Apartment which is a three bedroom large rental similar to most condos with 5 beds and a sofabed., but on the first floor located between two large condo complexes, but half the price. If booked, we have 9 other rentals in this group. Great for large families with lots of kids and pets. New, clean white beachy furniture with white tile floors and bamboo floors, Air conditioning and heat provided. 2014 remodel with new bath wall, shower, vanity, beds and furniture. All linens and comforter, towels and beach chairs provided. Friendly onsite manager offer free use of managers bicycles .On site housekeeper and manager to assist you in enjoying your beach vacation as much as possible.

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 backyard has several gas BBQ grills and and a covered Gazebo with lounge chairs and tables.

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

Clerical Management is by Blue Wave Motel and Resorts and we book for many properties in Clearwater Beach.

About Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations

Capt. Al, the Property Manager and Cottage Counselor is originally from New Jersey. 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.

Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations 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.

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.

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

No fuss great fun!

  • 5 of 5
Everything that I had read about Clearwater Beach Cottages was spot on! This is the perfect beach with kids location! Not fancy...but everything you need. Capt. Al is a very friendly guy and was so easy to work with (our late arrival...etc) We are locals and have tried many places. The only minor issue for us was only have one bathroom...but our stay was just for the long weekend...and we survived! It's an easy jaunt down the block to beach entry and a great place for kids. We are locals...so we didn't need to ask a lot of questions from Capt. Al...but I can see how helpful he could be for tourists! We would definitely return for a long weekend again...but for a whole week we would just need one more bathroom!!

Good Times at The Hideaway Cottage on Clearwater Beach

  • 5 of 5
We, 6 adults, 1 newborn baby and 2 dogs had a great time here! Within a walk thru the courtyard of the beach view and a couple hundred feet you're on the beautiful shell covered beach of Clearwater itself. We rode bikes (provided) and walked the the few blocks of Mandalay Ave to Pier 60 where there is a Sunset Celebration everynight and the sunsets here are awesome! The stores and window shopping along the way are well worth the short walk. Our hosts were always readily available and the cottage was quite comfortable with all the ammenities to drop your bags and hit the beach. Towels, kitchen utensils and linens are all provided. The kitchen could use a cookie sheet but there were pots and pans of all sizes. I know that if I had of asked for a cookie sheet one would have been provided because the hosts are that good and a phone call away! Capt Al, Rodney and Gayle are superb; Gayle you're a real sweetheart and I enjoyed our chats in the courtyard. :-) So would I stay here again? In a heartbeat! Would I recommend this place to a friend? Without hesitation! What would I stress with my recommendation? If you want room service and the fancy stay stuff go to the Hilton; but if you want to have quality time with your companion, friends and/or family, and enjoy being beachside and within a few hundred steps of standing in the sand and a down home kind of atmosphere... this is the place!! Thankyou for a our stay at the beach! We met our 3 week old grandson and had a wonderful time and enjoyed the Hideaway Cottage very much!
