RIGHT ON THE BEACH! SEASIDE COTTAGE - 5 minutes south of Clearwater Beach and minutes to St. Petes Beach.
Come and relax in our beautifully redecorated and totally refurbished 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, 2 story gulf front beach house that sleeps 8. The house is well equipped with newer mattresses and linens and a newly renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and new bathroom with double vanity and glass shower doors.
Our property is right on the beach, not across the street and it's the type of place where you can set up your beach chairs on the beach in the morning and go back and forth between the pool, home, washroom or come back and forth for drinks and snacks all day. It's about 50 steps from the home to the sand!
With our property, you have the luxury of your own home, not a highrise, which is located right on the beach with a private pool! It's rare to find a stand alone home on the beach with a pool, especially if you really don't want to stay in a highrise condo. Our property has 5 units in total that share the pool, so it is very quiet and not over crowded.
The balcony upstairs provides extraordinary views of the beach and the pool. Enjoy morning coffee, meals, or cocktails on the patio furniture on the balcony while you enjoy the awesome views! The pool is shared with only 4 other homes and is a pleasure to swim in a heated pool. Rest peacefully at the end of the day in the 2nd floor master bedroom with all new furnishings including a King size bed with a view of the beach! The 2nd bedroom upstairs has two twin beds and a bunk bed so this room sleeps 4. The upstairs bathroom has a double vanity and with a large glass door shower (no tub). The downstairs bedroom has a Queen size bed, new furniture, mattress, linens and built in cupboards. There is also a 3 pc. bathroom downstairs with a shower stall with glass door that serves the downstairs bedroom.
The newer kitchen is fully equipped with brand new glasses, dishes, cutlery, many small applicances and all furnishings. The living and dining room boasts brand new furniture. The dining area easily seats 8 at the new counter height dining table. Let the stresses of everyday life slip away as you take in the sights, sounds and smells of the Gulf of Mexico: breathe in the salt air, listen to the waves, and watch the sun fade into the horizon.
We also have a large binder in the home filled with all the info you need on surrounding area, including menus, schedules, tourist info etc.
Come and discover the wonderful secret of Belleair Beach - a quiet, uncrowded beach community of mostly residential units with no high rise complexes. Private yet only minutes away from Clearwater Beach and Pier 60 and only 10 miles to St. Petes Beach. You are also only six miles from Caladesi Island, voted one of the best beaches in the U.S.

Nancy Schappert purchased this House in 2010
Why Nancy Schappert chose Pinellas County
Belleair Beach is a unique community in that there are no commercial properties nor high rise condominium complexes so the beaches are very private, tranquil and quiet. Our property including the heated pool is shared with 4 other owners so it is very private. In 2013, a $34 million beach restoration was completed which totally restored our beautiful beach for your enjoyment! With our property, you have the luxury of your own home, not a highrise, which is located right on the beach with a private pool! It's rare to find a stand alone home on the beach with a pool, especially if you really don't want to stay in a highrise condo. The area in general has so much to offer from quiet sunsets on the beautiful beaches to the hustle of Tampa with all the sports and cultural events. Clearwater, only 1.5 miles north has an awesome beachfront, pier, boating, waterside restaurants, fishing and nightly entertainment on the pier. There is always something going on of interest within a short drive. The area is served by two airports. Allegiant Air which serves the Clearwater/St. Pete airport (only 15 minutes from the cottage) and offers a great value and Tampa International airport. You are also about an 1-1/2 hour drive to Orlando and all the excitement offered there such as Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld.
What makes this House unique
Seaside Cottage is located in a quiet, tranquil setting where you can relax by the pool which is just outside your door or stroll down to the uncrowded beach. The beach home is conveniently located less than a mile from the Belleair Causeway that takes you into Largo which has many shopping areas including fresh food stores, liquor, drugstores and grocery stores. There are also many great restaurants located just across the causeway such as A&E Stakeout Grill, Bonefish Grill and Darlin Marlin with great early bird dinner specials (appetizer, entree and desert!) as well as happy hour specials. The cottage is so close to the excitement of Clearwater Beach and the evening sunset celebration at Pier 60. Heading south takes you to Indian Rocks beach and one of our favorite restaurants, Guppy's. There are trolleys that run the entire length of the barrier islands. If you like to ride bikes you are not far from access to the Pinellas Trail, a 37 mile greenway corridor linking beautiful parks, coastal areas and neighborhoods. The nice thing is that you don't have to go far to find most anything you are looking for.

Great Beach Getaway
This beach house was a great place to spend our week in Bellaire Beach. It is a standalone home in a small complex that shares a pool. There were never more than a couple people at the pool at any one time, and our daughter quickly made friends with some of the other kids there. There was a giant box of beach toys provided, and the beach itself was only a few yards away from the house.
We tend to cook a lot when we go on vacation, and the kitchen in this house was one of the most well-equipped we have ever found. The knives were even sharp (a rarity in rental houses)! The house was very clean and well stocked, and the owner left us some snacks and wine to get our vacation started.
The only downside to this rental is that the bedrooms all face the road, and the upstairs bedrooms in particular had a ton of traffic noise. We've lived in cities before (so we're used to traffic), but the older single-pane windows didn't do anything to muffle the noise. If you're a light sleeper, this might pose a problem.
Nancy, the owner, was very quick to answer questions that we had, and we really appreciated being able to stay here on our vacation.
Beach, BlueJays and Birds!
My husband and I spent a week here with our daughter and 8 month old granddaughter. We came for sun and relaxation and also some BlueJays spring training games! This property fit the bill perfectly and our host was fantastic!! The pictures and description are exactly as described. The property is on the beach side of the road but behind a couple of other homes, however there is a second floor balcony with a view of the ocean as in the pictures, and the beach is just steps away. The pool is right outside the door and nicely heated so our granddaughter could enjoy it! There was a baby floaty toy for her to use in the pool as well.
There was a baby monitor, booster seat, and pack and play for the baby. We purchased a baby bath as there is no bathtub, and Nancy reimbursed us for it! We also were not able to find beach chairs in the pool house and Nancy provided her own personal ones until the other ones could be found. She also provided her own personal sunshade tent so the baby could enjoy the beach. She was very helpful and accommodating. The house is very well equipped and beds very comfortable. We slept like logs!
The neighbourhood is residential and grocery stores and other shopping are a short drive away. Just make sure you have a good list prepared so you don't have to run out for last minute things as there is nothing very close by.
We enjoyed a few of the local restaurants. Guppy's and Crabby Bill's for great fish and seafood, Maggie Mae's for a great breakfast and very family friendly atmosphere, and fantastic pizza from Slyce (free delivery).
Dunedin stadium for the BlueJays games was a 1/2 hour away. We had dinner in Dunedin at a great Mexican restaurant - Casa Tina. Food was fantastic, portions very generous and it was also very family friendly.
The beach was just beautiful, and of course facing west, so every night was a beautiful sunset. All the people in the complex meet at the beach about 1/2 hour before sunset with drink in hand and enjoy the spectacle which is different each night. We did not catch the "green flash" though. Maybe next time! We enjoyed many walks along the beach and of course found some seashells to take home as souvenirs. There were many birds and waterfowl to watch. We enjoyed watching the pelicans diving for food in the ocean.
We wish we could have stayed another week or longer! There is lots to do and see, and we didn't begin to cover it.
Thank you for a great stay Nancy!
Wow, what a great review! Thanks for taking the time to detail so much about the property, the area and our great neighbors! I hope you can come back another time.
The house, 3 stars. The location In relation to the beach, 4 stars.
The house was decent, but the fridge and dishwasher could use some maintenance on the inner workings. We enjoyed our time and were elated with the convenience of coming and going to the beach simply by walking down the pathway. Belleair Beach was very quiet and not occupied by many people. This was a joy and a relief for our family. This property made our vacation even more enjoyable with its proximity to the beach.
Thanks Andrea! We always appreciate feedback that give us an opportunity to address any concerns with our home. Thanks for taking the time to chat with me today to let me know what needs to be addressed. As we discussed, the concerns were a couple of minor issues that we will easily be able to solve to make them good as new. I am so glad you fell in love with our home and the location on the beach, so close to Clearwater, yet so quiet and peaceful! We hope to see you again.
House was perfect location. Size great for our group of six! Well maintained and loved the pool.
Enjoyed everything. If we ever return to Belleaire this is where we will stay again.
Great Beach Home!!!
We are a family of 4 and this was a GREAT vacation rental. We loved it. When we arrived it was clean, as described & pictured, and even had some snacks laid out for us. The location was great... the pool was great... the beach was great... I could go on and on. I would recommend this house to anyone traveling to the area and my wife is already wanting me to start planning a trip for next summer.
Love this area
Really enjoyed our much needed vacation, but in the week we were there the pool was never cleaned, is that the norm?
We do have a pool service company that comes in weekly to service the pool. Sometimes with the strong gulf winds leaves etc. may blow into the pool between the service dates. The company we use offers us great service and we really don't get any negative reviews on the pool. I am sorry that it was not 100% for your visit.
