CRYSTAL BEACH POOL BUNGALOW

Crystal Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Renovated 4 bedroom Fisherman's Cottage across from Gulf of Mexico

This is an original 1915 Fisherman's Cottage that has been tastefully extended and renovated to provide all the modern comforts but retain it's old world charm with many original features including the wood floors, cabinetry, beamed ceiling and knob & tube wiring (for show only you will be pleased to read). The original front door leads directly into a spacious living area and from there into the large dining area and kitchen. The huge master bedroom with ensuite bathroom is located at the back of the cottage and gives direct access to the pool area. There is a spare bedroom off the master. The two remaining bedrooms share a separate bathroom with tub & shower. Located in Crystal Beach, originally a fishing village developed in 1912, this area has remained unspoiled and has been compared to Key West with it's feel and charm of a seaside community. Enjoy the park setting & shell pathway fish from the pier or visit nearby Honeymoon Island & take a ferry to nearby Caladesi Island.

Local Restaurants: There are lots of great restaurants all within a five minute car ride of the villa. The Thirsty Marlin in Palm Harbor, Molly Goodheads in Ozona & Rusty Bellies waterfront in Tarpon Springs are just three to mention. Great steaks and seafood served in a laid back atmosphere where shorts and a t shirt are considered formal wear. You can eat out at different restaurants for fourteen nights straight and never go to a bad one. Bon Appetit.

Local Beaches: Crystal beach, sunset beach and Howard state park beach all host live music most Friday, Saturday or Sunday evenings to accompany the sunsets. Drive over the causeway to Honeymoon island and walk the beach for miles up to the pass overlooking Three Rooker bar-a deserted sandbar popular with local boaters and dolphins. Catch the ferry from Honeymoon island to Caladesi state park with it's award winning beach. There are wildlife walks round the island where you can come across armadillos, racoons, giant tortoises and signs that say 'beware of rattlesnakes'' or, if you go through the week you can be a castaway with the beach to yourself. All these beaches are very close to the villa but away from the main tourist area, easily accessible and with great facilities. There's a beach here for everyone and they all share the same crystal clear warm waters of the gulf.

Enjoying the Cottage: A lot of our guests are happy to chill out after a hectic week in Orlando. The back garden is a sun trap, great for topping up that tan and when it gets too hot you can slip into the pool then sit under the palms sipping on chilled white wine or a frosty beer out of the fridge. It is very quiet and peaceful except for the hum of the occasional golf cart that is the preferred mode of transport for the locals. You can watch the ospreys heading back from the gulf with their next meal still wriggling in their talons, hand feed the resident egret with cold hot dogs, once he gets to know you and occasionally stroll down to the beach and watch the fish leaping as the giant pelicans glide by. Its not compulsory but cocktails on the beach at sunset confers on you the title of 'local' for the duration of your stay. Cheers.

Awesome Memeories

  • Submitted: Apr 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2014
Thank you for a great vacation! We hope to see you next April. We'll carry memories of good times in the pool as we return to Michigan. Your beautiful home became a sanctuary to our family while we were here this week. The location was ideal for us and close to family members. The home is decorated beautifully and the pool was such a hit with our granddaughters. We would love to return next Spring. We made awesome memories

Great Location

  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Thank you for the rental of your lovely cottage. It has so much more space than we imagined. Our grandson loved it and wants to move here!! Loved the decorating-a real homey feel. We originally thought that we were going to be quite a distance from everything but, surprisingly it is a great location.- not far from anything. Dunedin is but minutes and Clearwater a few more-seemed so much further on a map. And the weather warmed up for us-bonus. One suggestion would be some steak knives but other than that quite perfect.

Loved the House

  • Submitted: Mar 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We loved the house and all its character. The location was fantastic and we enjoyed the sunsets at the beach and it was great to have the pool-we used it a lot. It was a real holiday-now hate the thought of returning to winter & snow in the Ottawa valley

Positively Lovely

  • Submitted: Feb 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Your house is positively lovely! We have thoroughly enjoyed the week. Your attention to decorating detail made us instantly feel like we were home. The area is great-we visited Tarpon Springs for the sponge docks, the Suncoast primate sanctuary, the Florida Aquarium and of course Winter the dolphim. The perfect place to celebrate our daughter's fourth birthday. Your tips were wonderful and we're already planning for when we can come back. Thanks.

Our villa is situated on a quiet shady lane exactly 150 yards from the small, sandy public beach and community pier. This is a self contained area of real Florida where everybody says hello and the locals drive around on golf carts. The beauty of it is that you can easily trade the peace and tranquility of your own private pool & spa for the razz matazz of more conventional holiday destinations like Clearwater Beach a twenty minute drive away or the wild rides at Disney and Busch Gardens ninety minutes away. Whatever you feel like doing, there is something here for all ages.
