Welcome and thanks for visiting my profile. I am Capt. Al , my nickname because I am on the boat most of the Summer enjoyng the beautiful waterways and islands around Clearwater Beach.Originally from New Jersey I grew up near the shore and always desired to live near the beach. When you come to visit I hope to show you around this beautiful little island and the things I enjoy most. See you soon.
Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info. purchased this house in 2005
In the condo craze, most of the cottages and old wood hotels were torn down. There are just a hand full of old cottages left in Clearwater. When you vacation here, you feel like staying at beach cottage like when you were a kid. Feels a lot different than the high rise hotels and condo resorts. If you like fancy shmancy please say at the Hilton or Sandpearl Hotels, but if you want to experience that Old Florida Charm, the Cottages are for you. These houses were designed OLD FLORIDA DISTRICT by the Beach by Design planning committee.
Sit on the front porch and watch the never ending excitement at the famous Shipwreck Bar. Fun loving Tourist stumble in and out all day for photo shoots. When you tired of that , go sit on the back porch and watch the sunset. Many famous Tiki Bar and Resturants are just 2-3 blocks walk on the beach from Clearwater Cottages.
I booked several of the cottages and the Tommy house for my group of 25+ college kids and coaches. From start to finish it was an awesome experience. The location is perfect, the cottages are very nice, and the overall experience was wonderful. Kudos to Captain Al and crew for helping us with a late checkout and even returning a forgotten item. While these cottages are not the Ritz, they are well appointed enough to make anyone comfortable and the attitude/location make this a one of a kind experience.
Our stay at the Tommy Bahama house was very pleasant for 6 spring breakers! When we arrived at the Blue Wave Motel to pick up our house keys, the man at the front desk not only provided us with them, but also stepped outside and pointed out area attractions and their distance. Upon arriving at the Tommy Bahama, we were greeted by the housekeeper to an authentic, friendly little home that was just to our liking. The online description was accurate to what we experienced in the house. We were within a very decent walking distance to Pier 60 and the popular stores and restaurants, but still far enough away from the crowded lower beach area. I hope to stay here again someday and thank you for allowing us to stay at the Tommy Bahama house!
Went to stay in Clearwater at the tommy bahama suite with some friends and had an amazing time. The rooms were clean, furnishing was fitting for a historic beach house and there was a great sound system. Service from captain Al and his first mate Karen was exceptional. Very friendly and accommodating service. Highly recommend if you are looking to be steps from the beach as well as close to local establishments to get food and refreshments.
We just got back to New Engand after spending four great weeks at the Tommy Bahama House. We are three women with three dogs. This was a terrific fit for us. The house has plenty of room and is very well appointed. The kitchen was recently redone with stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, and granite countertops. It really is steps from the beach and walkable to town and the recreation center. Capt. Al and Karen were great hosts and very responsive to any requests we made. We had such a good time that we've booked the Tommy Bahama house for SIX weeks next year.
Not sure why the last reviewer was so upset. Every review I read and info on the cottages web site explained exactly what this cottage was. I'm still here, checking out Saturday and wish I could stay another week. The cottage is old, quirky, funky, cool etc. It is NOT dirty and nasty. Yes, there is a GREAT local "dive" bar across the street. Went over and played pool one night and had a great time with friendly locals and tourists. I'm 60 and was happy to see they had some great tunes (CSN, Chicago, Boston etc.) Sit out front on the cottage proch and watch the passing beach goers and the when the "show" at the bar as the night goes on. Sit on the back porch where it's quiet and watch the "filtered" sunset as Capt. Al calls it. Great takeout pizza joint next door, but this really is the quiet end of the beach, yet only a few blocks from Palm Pavilian (great food and drinks) or Frenchie's on the beach (didn't eat there). Best of all is the great people that own/run this place. Unfortunately Capt. Al left for NJ for a weeding so we didn't get to go out on the boat, but whenever we saw Al, Karen or Rodney they would stop and talk for a while and then ask if there was anything we needed. Very attentive. Karen was going to the store today and asked if we needed anything. Can't get that at the Hilton! I'm a Hilton Gold member so I know what a decent place is, so you know this review isn't written by someone who's best stay was at a Motel 6. There was absolutely no problem with cleanliness. This is FL in August and we didn't see one bug in the place. If we have reason to come back (which we will), we'll call Capt. Al first for a cottage. Don't forget do your research and take some of the comments with a grain of salt, but if most are positive, ignore the one or two that are negative. Most of those have an axe to grind. Don't stay here if you want plush carpets, balcony on the beach, covered parking etc. cause this ain't the place for you!
Old, nasty, filthy dirty. Antiquated furnishings, decor, rusted fixtures, a window air conditioner that turns on and the outlet sparks. On a busy street, across from a dive bar. Undeniably the worst place we've ever stayed
