A unique and rare find. Old Florida charm in a well maintained beach cottage located in a private tropical setting of only five units. Our Dragonfly Cottage is just 10 steps to the heated pool and 45 steps to the beautiful white sandy beach and unforgettable sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico for you and your family to enjoy. With only four other units sharing the pool and beach you will not feel crowded. The cottage has an open and airy floor plan with 1 bedroom and 2 baths. There is a day bed with trundle in the family room to accommodate the kids. Central heating and air conditioning ensure your comfort.

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. You are also only six miles from Caladesi Island, voted one of the top beaches in the U.S.

These barrier islands are just west of Tampa in Pinellas County. The islands have some of the most eclectic communities to be found among beach communities world-wide. They include Clearwater Beach, Island Estates, Sand Key, Belleair Beach, Belleair Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, Madeira Beach, Treasure Island and St. Pete Beach.

These areas are blessed with sandy beaches and natural unspoiled landscapes with clear, sparkling Gulf waters, a subtropical climate, and an abundance of glorious Florida sunshine -- 365 days a year!

Pinellas County's barrier islands are accessed via causeways and bridges and each community has its own unique flavor. Because of the mix of many different cultures, foods, music, and entertainment, life on these islands varies from one island to the next. You can find everything from a relaxed escape from the usual rat race of everyday life, to the exhilarating beat of live music being played at the clubs.

Come and discover what this beautiful area has to offer........you won’t be disappointed.

About The Owner

We are semi-retired and looking forward to the time when we can be at the cottage and enjoy a glass of wine as we watch the beautiful sunset. We fell in love with the communities of the barrier islands. We think you will find this area a great place to visit, relax and explore.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Clearwater Area

Belleair Beach is a unique community in that there are no commercial properties nor high rise condominium complexes. 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. There is always something going on of interest within a short drive. The area is served by two airports. Allegant Air serves the Clearwater/St. Pete airport (only 20 minutes from the cottage) and offers a great value. 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 cottage unique

Dragonfly 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 cottage is conveniently located less than a mile from the Belleair Causeway that takes you into Largo which has many shopping areas including pharmacies and grocery stores. There are also many great restaurants located just across the causeway such as E&E Steakout Grill, Bonefish Grill and Marlin Darlin just to name a few. The cottage is just 3 miles from 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.

Excellent Vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us use your home for our vacation. We had the best time. Very close to beach (a minute walk out of your back door), a lovely cozy home, it had all you would ever need for a fantastic vacation. We had four adults (two were teenage boys) and we were very comfortable in this home. The owners provided beach chairs, cooler, E-Z UP tent, and beach towels (what more could you want for the beach). We will be keeping this place in mind for the next trip to this area. Owners were great to work with and quick to respond to the cable issue (storm related). TV was up a running within 15 minutes of notifying the owner. Thank you again and we will be seeing you soon.

This cottage/property is awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Like a previous poster noted, it is larger than the photos present it. The beach is right out the back door, very quiet and clean. If you want a place away from the tourist buzz and crowd, this is the place to be. We were also surprised at how well equipped it is, everything you can think of is available. We cooked our own meals with plenty of food stores very close. We would recommend this place to anyone, friends and family!!

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a vacation dream come true for my husband and me! Everything was perfect, with our every need and want anticipated by the owners. The living area is much larger than it appears in the photos, the bed was comfy, and the daybed was an ideal napping spot. The property is very quiet, day and night, and you feel like you're in a private oasis. The beach in October was fantastic; perfect temperature and light breezes were just right for a full day in the sand. The beach chairs were awesome, definitely a nice perch for bird watching and sunning. We can't wait for another trip to Dragonfly Cottage!

Cozy beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage, it was even better than we thought. Very clean, great location, secluded beach - there were days we were the only ones in the line of sight. In addition to this there is a spa jets in the pool, which is great for evening relaxation with a drink. You will not be disappointed, and after staying in Dragonfly Cottage you will consider coming back next year.
