About Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info.

Capt. Al, the Property Manager, Reservaton Agent, and Cottage Counselor is originally from New Jersey, and was a camp counselor at Club Getaway. Having enjoyed living close the Jersey Shore my dream has always been to live at the beach in Florida. For 35 years I have enjoyed this beautiful little island. Here we get to swim in the Gulf of Mexico as the sun sets, enjoy local fresh fish, and have great congenial neighbors who are friendly and enjoy the same 'Salt Life' . When you come to visit, Capt. Al and his first mate, Karen will be happy to show you around.

Why Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info. chose Clearwater Area

These are the very last real beach cottages left in Clearwater Beach so close to the beach. Designated as the Old Florida District, by the City's Beach by Design, they give you the feel of Old Florida, in day 's gone by. These cottages are in North Beach in a quaint area with cute beach houses . These cottage and a few Guest Houses and small houses on these 3 streets are the very last of the Old Florida District in Clearwater Beach

What makes this cottage unique

Beach Cottages are fun. Cute little houses right by the sea. No cold elevators and halls to walk down. No stuffy neighbors. Just walk out the door and one hundred steps and you enjoy the best beaches in America. Most are much larger than the rooms called cottages in the large older homes in the neighborhood. Most are real little houses or a duplex with full new kitchens , new Stainless Steel appliances, and entertainment systems in most bedrooms.

Staying in the cottage was like------having our own little- beach cottage ! We parked our car (right outside the door) , and left it parked ! We walked a short distance to the beach , walked to the restaurants , and walked to the stores ! We loved the little cottage , and our trip to Clearwater Beach ! Mike and Doris Hrin .

It was ok, close to the beach.

  • 3 of 5

We arrived pretty late and via email and the listing we were told we could get a late check out. When we asked about it in person we were ignored and when I asked again I was told no.... Pretty dated place and parking is squeezed, pretty typical for the beach it was a super hot weekend and the a/c had a hard time keeping up... I will spend a few more $ next time for a better place. Very close to the beach and that where we spent our time.

Owner's Response: DEAR GUEST, I understand your disappointment and that we could not give you a late check-out you did check in very late you stated and you felt that 11 was not a late check-out .I'm sorry you felt ignored we simply had the guest checking in for the July 4th week want a one o clock check in most hotels check out is at 10 so unfortunately you did not get to enjoy the beach for but a short time. Concerning your remarks that the property is dated unfortunately you did not spend enough time to notice the brand new 2016 high-end designer kitchen and the brand new 2017 very comfortable mattress that you slept in or the brand new 2 LG air conditioners which generally cool the property down but you did mention it was a very very hot day in July . Parking is tight but guess what it's free and thank you for letting everyone know how close the Corner Cottage is to the beach we hope you will spend a little more time if you return to Clearwater Beach to enjoy everything this town has to offer Captain Al and Karen

Excellent vacation and staff

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Captain Al and Karen and staff. We stayed in the lemon cottage. Perfect old school cottage updated with everything you need. The beach is literally at the end of the street and everything's within walking distance. We enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking mandalay avenue every night and with coffee in the morning. We enjoyed the comings and goings of the quiet north end of Clearwater beach. Al and Karen are the nicest people you will ever meet. If you want a quaint, quiet home away from home this is for you. Thank you for a great vacation. D&J Michigan.

Capt. Al and his wife were so accomodating. The property is perfectly situated near the beautiful beach yet far enough away from the traffic and noise in the tourist areas. We travelled with our adult kids and dog and loved the cottages. We recommend this for anyone anytime of year.
