My name is Julie and I have lived in Crystal Beach 15 years. I am an artist and interior decorator and paint for the local shops and commissions. I love to have my walks in the Park, see the sunsets hear the church bell rings and walk down on the pier in the mornings. I have a paddle board and kayak the I like to enjoy the alm waters of St. Joseph sound. My family enjoys the outdoors so we are often out in the area making new friends with locals and visitors alike. We are avid football fans and we like to see the Toronto Bluejays and Philadelphia Phillies play in the spring and the Tampa Buccaneers in the Fall. I am always trying to make my guest stay an enjoyable experience so they will return again some other time in the future.

Because I love it and want to share it...It is a quaint little neighborhood perfect for raising children and retiring as well. The demographics are multi-generational and non assuming. There is progress all around yet you get a sense of back in time when your here. The apartment is comfortable, beautiful, warm and inviting that is-situated in the heart of the little community of Crystal Beach and I want my friends, family and visitors to have a beautiful peaceful stay while visiting our part of Florida...
This studio is street level first floor with a car port. It is located right in the middle of the cute sleepy town of Crystal Beach easy to access from the US Highway Alt19. It has lovely screened in porch and open concept. Great, quite, safe, family and dog friendly neighborhood. It will sleep a couple on the Queen size bed and another 2 guest on the trundle bed. A welcome basket of goodies and water, wine & cheese and Orange juice will meet you when you arrive. If you want take a souvenir post card or leave one before you go....

We had a comfortable stay at this little bungalow. It was ideal for our needs.
This place is so adorable. There was everything I needed. Close to everywhere I wanted to go. Close to the beach, shopping. Easy to get to and was quiet and rewarding.The apartment was clean, comfortable and charming. Very satisfied.
My husband and I loved our stay in Crystal Beach, Palm Harbor. The cottage/apartment was perfect for us; 2 bedrooms, nice screened porch, clean and decorated very nicely. The beds were very comfortable. The owner was super nice, she even let us use her bicycles for the month. The neighbourhood was great to walk or bike around, everyone was very friendly, always said hello. Very close to everything you need, and steps away from the Pinellas trail. Would definitely recommend this little gem!
The kitchen was not the cleanest, I didn't want to put my food in the cabinets, mold in the coffee maker. The remote for the a/c was filthy, I wouldn't touch it. The bedrooms were clean and the bathroom was clean. I was not comfortable there. The owner offered a refund of the "cleaning and sanitizing" fee. I packed and left, and took a gaffing, was refunded 50% of my one week reservation. Part of the problem with renting sight unseen. Take a look at the photos again. It is not a waterfront property.
