This beach house has a funky atmosphere just made for FUN in the SUN! There is a quirky rainforest mural decor in the Great Room painted by a famous local artist. Banquet-size dining table makes for wonderful feasts. Tile floors and ceiling fans add to the island ambiance. Cathedral ceilings in Great Room and King Bedroom. Accents of pecky-cypress wood lend an authentic Old Florida flavor. Carlouel residential neighborhood is upscale, quiet and dog-friendly. Bring your friendly pet dog on the beach on a 6 ft. leash.

About Ann Mitcham

It is our 17th Year for Beach House rentals at Clearwater Beach, Florida! I have enjoyed meeting our guests and am thrilled to welcome back many who return again and again. Giving the children and grandchildren a chance to frolic in the water and play in the sand has always been a thrill for me.

Ann Mitcham purchased this house in 1993

Why Ann Mitcham chose Clearwater Area

CLEARWATER BEACH, FL is a town that the only purpose is to have FUN! The beach has been ranked #ONE Best City Beach and connects to CALADESI ISLAND STATE PARK which was ranked #ONE Best Beach in America, 2008. The beach houses sit in a quiet, residential neighborhood which is between these two amazing places--you get all the 'action' and the 'beauty of a natural environment.' The Gulf of Mexico has beautiful clear water, gentle surf, gradual sloping bottom and the beach is wide with silky-soft white sand. There is a bench on the beach which says it all, 'HEAVEN ON EARTH' and I couldn't agree more!

What makes this house unique

Our dream was to own a home at the beach. It was our lucky day when we bought this one at the best beach in America! All you could ask for--comfort, relaxation, fun, nature. Come enjoy it with your family!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! Even though the weather was cloudy & rainy your house made it all worthwhile. We loved the african, hawaiian, carribbean look. Being a cuban who has lived in New York and Miami this house brought me back to my roots. We often went to the beach "Varadero" during our youth; after 50 years of not being there--this brought back great childhood memories. We will definitely be back. Have a very healthy & happy New Year!

Beautiful beach house, great location

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was beautiful. The pictures don’t do it justice, and the owner was super nice. We would stay there again and highly recommend it. The beach in front of the house was great, not crowded at all and the water was perfect. Mini golf was not that far as well, and the kids loved it. Nightly there is a celebration at the pier and show a movie outside on the weekends. We saw Hulk Hogan as well, he lives just a few houses down from the beach house. Hope to be back next year.

Sea Shore House

  • 5 of 5

We thought it was a wonderful, spacious home. Our group was multi-generational and it worked for all of us (7 months to 93 years). We were there during Tropical Storm Debby so we spent 3 days indoors. We never felt cramped for space. After the weather cleared we enjoyed watching the sunsets from the deck. We are "locals" and often need a place big enough for visiting family. This fits the bill. I would definitely like to rent here again.

Owner's Response: A good storm is an exciting event! And a good lightening show is a thing to behold especially when you have a front row seat seeing it out the wall of western windows! Tropical Storm Debby brought a lot of rain with her! We love our "locals" who think of the beach house as their "Home at the Beach." We enjoyed meeting your mother and left her #93 Happy Birthday baloon floating in the Living Room for luck! You and your delightful family are welcome--please come again real soon! Ann

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the Sea Shore Beach House was heaven! We had five adults and two Westies on our visit, and it felt like home from the minute we arrived. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, but a large, spacious living area for playing games, dining and spending time together. The location was perfect! Walk one direction down the beach to a beautiful state park, and in the other direction is Clearwater. The beach was not crowded in this area, and we had lots of room to run and play with our dogs. It is a short walk from the house to the beach. They have everything you will need at this property to have fun at the beach including an umbrella, chairs, snorkel equipment, beach towels, etc. We used the outside grill several times, and could sit with a cocktail and watch the sun sink into the ocean from the back deck. The bedrooms are roomy and the bathrooms are adequate. There are three showers (and an outdoor shower) and one huge jacuzzi tub. The house is located in a very nice, upscale area near a country club, so we could walk or ride the bikes (also provided) and feel our safety was not at risk. Clearwater has so much to do, and it is a short drive from this house. You will need a car to get around. This is a great place for families, and we hope to go back!

Owner's Response: It was great that you had such a wonderful time! And that you found the Sea Shore beach house to be everything you wanted for comfort and relaxation. Loved the picture of your Westies and it's now on my vrbo site. When guests send me a favorite picture I know they've had a good vacation! I try to tell people what a wonderful place Clearwater Beach is but I always hope that I'm not overselling. My customers are the BEST! Hope to meet you the next time you visit. Come again soon! Ann

Owner's Response: It was great having your family visit. We were happy to provide the portacrib and highchair for the baby. Your little dog was welcome and I'm sure he enjoyed the beach. I especially liked the wife's comment that she wanted to come back in her next life to Clearwater Beach because it is heaven! It's always a thrill to hear that because I totally agree!!! Ann

Owner's Response: The wedding at the beach was a great reason for traveling from TX to FL. We were glad the Sea Shore beach house was a good fit for your family. Hope you took home many happy memories! We can accommodate larger family gatherings at all the beach houses because they are nearby to the others. All are very close to the beach in the same wonderful neighborhood. We like being your "Home Away from Home!"

Comfortable House Right on the BEACH!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples staying at this house for 1 week. Each one had their own bedroom and bathroom. It was very comfortable in that sense and because there were plenty of places to sit in the living room, kitchen, and deck. Another couple joined us half-way through the week and reported that the twin beds in the living room (which is usually a couch) were very comfortable.

The deck offers views of sand dunes and plam trees. It is a short walk to the water (3 minutes tops) The beach is beautiful. Great for walking and running (esp at low tide) since it is flat. We had plenty of room as this part of the beach never gets very crowded which was nice since we were there during one of the busy weeks of spring break. There were plenty of good quality beach chairs as well! You can walk to a resturant or state park easily from this point on the beach.

Ann was great to deal with and returned my deposite within two weeks. She is the real deal!
