About Jennifer Goss

My husband Sean and I moved to Florida in 2010. Sean lived in German for most of his childhood, he speaks fluent German. We love this area and enjoy the beach lifestyle. We love old Volkswagen's and have a couple on-site. We are low stress and don't sweat the small stuff.

Jennifer Goss purchased this studio in 2010

Why Jennifer Goss chose Clearwater Area

We are listed on multiple sites with great reviews. We offer a unique space (300 sq feet) that offers a quiet, safe, and secluded environment that is close to area attractions. We are a short bike ride over the bridge to the sand. If your looking for a small space, close to everything, with a great private outdoor space, at a fair price, this is it.

We are great for people staying longer periods of time because we have Laundry (washer/dryer) in the space, cable TV with 24-hour news station, and we provide a private router with password solely to the space. Downloads are fast and internet is high speed. Great for the business traveler.

What makes this studio unique

We have a private entrance to the unit, private parking and a private backyard for your furry friends to roam securely. It's a unique space, best described as giving a beach/nature feel. You will not find a unit that has a large private yard, hot tub, close to the beach, that has the outdoor space and security for your pet.

Beautiful, fun, relaxing, friendly, cozy, clean!

  • 5 of 5

Where to even start! We were so impressed with the level of privacy and quiet this cottage was able to provide while maintaining such closeness to town and beach. Coming back to the privacy fence, mainicured lawn, hot tub, and talking parrot friends felt like coming home in a matter of hours! Not much longer than that and we had decided this was our favorite vacation stay yet! My husband and I used the male and female bikes provided to bike to the beach which turned out to be so much easier than I was expecting and 10 times more fun! There's no need to find a parking space and it's literally a straight shot to a beach access point with a bike rack not even a mile from the cottage's driveway! We will definitely be returning to this vacation sweet spot! But in the mean time, say hi to the parrots for me!

From the first moment to the last, this was a perfect spot for me. Sean and Jennifer have thought of everything and then some and for me ( an older widow) the location was super safe whatever time I was out and about. The garden was secluded and peaceful - a perfect place for breakfast or a nightcap, or just to read a book, and the bed was super comfortable. I didn't use a lot of the things provided for the beach or try the bikes, but I can honestly say that as an overseas visitor arriving by plane I didn't want for anything. Next time I'll bring a lot less with me!! Thank you both very much for making me so welcome - I'm sure I'll be back

Excellent experience! Rental was secure, spotless, warmly decorated, with every need anticipated. Hot tub, gas grill, fire pit, and seating for plenty in a large backyard area protected by a 6ft privacy fence. This area whimsically decorated w lights and fence art. Even the walkway back to the rental entrance is nicely decorated. This rental is well located to public beach access, within walking distance of a nature park that has a largely populated turtle pond w feeding options and birds of prey displays, and very close to excellent restaurants that serve the very popular stone crab. The rental is w/I minutes of Gulf Blvd, which is a lovely costal drive and the path to everything a tourist would want or need. The renters took excellent care of me! Ever available for anything needed. I had access to beach...everything! Chairs, umbrellas, towels, blankets, picnic basket, carryall bags, sunscreen, even sunburn treatments. This rental anticipates everything! It is top shelf and very worthy of 5 star! Theresa M.
