Guestbook comments from the owner
We marveled at how this little cottage was decorated and appointed. Had a nice stay and met both Phyllis and Carol - very nice neighbors. Many beautiful sites, and lots of things to do! We enjoyed the Pinellas Trail and the trolleys to many towns and places of interest!

This is our third home that we have made available for rent; the first in Clearwater. Our other two properties, in Branson, MO, have been a great success and over the past 6 years we have truly discovered what makes our renters happy in our homes. We are both from the Joplin/Springfield, Missouri area and have lived there all of our lives.

Derek and Jennifer Patterson purchased this cottage in 2013

We ABSOLUTELY adore the Clearwater area. We searched for years to find just the right place that we would feel comfortable calling our home away from home. We knew this house was 'the one' when we saw it in January 2013. The quiet, historic neighborhood and the huge, beautiful trees make this a place that we just cannot wait to come back home to!

We fell in love with the little purple house under the oak trees at first sight. We love being just minutes to the beach and boating; however, we're not so crazy about being stuck in the hustle and bustle of big cities! We enjoy peace and quiet and not having to deal with noise outside our windows, especially on vacation! This property fits the bill .

The PERFECT place to stay for our family! It's out-of-the-way enough to be homey, but within short distance of Clearwater Beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. We hope to go back next year for our family vacation.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Such a great neighborhood; I can't get over the Live Oaks, loved the 1885 church with their 49-bell carillon just down the street and a very convenient location to everything! …And the house was immaculate with great beds and no cheap sheets, so nice after a day in the sun. We’ll be back – thank you!

MUCH NEEDED GET AWAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
absolutely what i needed! the coolest house/cottage- open, roomy, everything you need, including a bed that i didn't want to get out of! we walked to the pier and watched the sunset, walked to the super cool Capital Theater and saw a concert by the the Zombies! I highly encourage all staying to check out the capital theater shows- it is newly remodeled, small and intimate, not a bad seat in the place.

I wish I lived here! But since I can't, I'll be back--- SOON! oh, clearwater beach is only a mile or so away!

I highly recommend to ALL-

5 stars on EVERY level - thank you Pattersons!!

Owner's Response: The Capital Theater is cool, isn't it ! Originally a 1921 Vaudeville Stage, and last year after about $6.5M renovation and having Jay Leno re-open it this Spring, the place is now a center piece to Clearwater...only 4 blocks from the Cottage to boot ! See you again soon!

BETTER THAN HOME...

  • 5 of 5
1st day - We were afraid to touch anything because decorating was like a magazine layout and was very, very clean. 2nd day - We were commenting on how comfortable and livable this "cottage" is. Rooms were bigger than expected. It had anything and everything you would need including a washer/dryer. There were detailed instructions for everything. Loved the walkability of the neighborhood. Walked around surrounding historical neighborhood, to small pier on the bay, to revitalized downtown area and marina, and to grocery store (1 block). Close to Clearwater Beach on Sand Key, St. Pete's, Tampa, and Tarpon Springs. This was our 1st VRBO and Derek & Jennifer made the process very easy. Everything was clearly explained and they were readily available via phone and email. The only negative thing I can say is that the "purple cottage" has now set a very high standard for any future rental! This really is much more of a home than a rental.

GREAT PLACE

We stayed at the cottage with another couple while we both attended a conference nearby. The cottage was comfortable and very relaxing after hours of cramming info into our heads. We were very pleased.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
What a treat to leave the snow and ice of Missouri behind for a weekend away in this adorable cottage! From the charming decor to the beautiful trees shading the yard, this place is just what we needed to relax and unwind during the busy holiday season. We spend one afternoon across the bridge in Clearwater, lounging on the beach, walking Pier 60 and shopping. We also made a trip to Raymond James Stadium to watch the Buccaneers take on our San Francisco 49ers. It was such an easy drive and our team won! We did some shopping at the Bay Street mall afterward --- great stores and a cute outdoor area with lots of good restaurants. We had breakfast at Wildflower Cafe ---Twice! We might have gotten out and done more had the beds at the cottage not been so comfy and inviting. We fell in love with the town and the sweet purple house and can’t wait to return. We so appreciate the Patterson’s friendship, generosity and hospitality.
