About Jennifer Altobelli

I'm a pediatric dentist in Rochester, NY. My second career is designing, building and renovating homes.

Jennifer Altobelli purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Jennifer Altobelli chose Clearwater Area

The BEST BEACH in the world. We are away from the tourist hub, so we have a lot of privacy... but we are within a few moments walk to all the fun...great restaurants, fun bars v& Pier 60.

What makes this cottage unique

1920's Old Florida Cottage, with brand new amenities...what couldn't be elevators, no hallways...

Beautiful Cottage Steps from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our trip to Clearwater and I am having the post vacation blue. I miss the Seashell Cottage so much! The place was so spacious and beautifully decorated with beach theme. The cottage had everything we need to cook amazing meals and even an outside grill for our bbqing pleasure. It was conveniently located within steps from the beach and there's a pizza place across from the cottage for a quick bite if you're not up to cooking after a long day at the beach. The beach is so clean and beautiful. I would love to come back again to stay at the Seashell cottage if I am ever in Clearwater again. Thank you Jennifer for having us!

Pristine and charming beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and stylish, clean and charming, a home away from home. The cottage is just steps away from gorgeous white sand beaches. Lots to do within walking distance. If you are looking for a place to spend a wonderful and relaxing vacation in an adorable neighborhood, stay here.

We got to our destination a little early and got to wander around town. When we entered the cottage it was exactly what you described. The pearly white beach is only steps from your door (sand never gets hot). The gulf water was warm with the waves and undertow next to nothing. Inside the cottage was very clean and full of extras such as spices and coffee and paper goods etc. Wifi connection was great. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in while away. The view from the dining area was just as your pictures show. We were on the beach every night at sunset. Each sunset was more spectacular then the next. The area was quite but within walking distance to just about everything. The only thing we found a little disappointing was the grill you mentioned. We were looking forward to cooking some nice steaks, but the grill was so tiny you really could not cook a meal for 4 people on.

I wished we could have stayed longer. I would highly recommend the Seashell Cottage to anyone wanting to visit Clearwater Beach FL.
