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 Beach

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.

Wonderful host. Steps from the beach. Historic look but wonderful renovations inside the cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Although my wife, son and I were at Clearwater on business and not pleasure, we truly enjoyed the cottages. We look for old world charm when we travel. We found that at this cottage. We did have some time to get to the beach and enjoy the sand and sun. When we return, we will contact Capt. Al again.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We picked this little cottage because we wanted to bring our dog. To that end, it was great. The cottage is super small, so keep that in mind. The bathroom and shower definitely need to be updated. There is a big crack in the corner of the very dark shower. Roaches (palmetto bugs?) have easy access to the shower and like to frequent it. There is no place to plug anything in in the bathroom. The shower is not good and the shower head holder is broken, making it tricky to use the sprayer and equally as tricky trying to hang it back up. The cottage has two window air conditioners. The one in the bedroom is extremely loud and makes weird noises off and on all night.. LOL. The sheets on the bed were terrible and nothing stayed tucked in. The bed is against a wall, so whomever sleeps on the far side has a problem getting up until the other person gets up. So, here's the good.. it was clean, the location is amazing, you get to bring your dog and you're steps from the beach..literally. The staff is really friendly and helpful and you get to park right in front of your cottage. There are plenty of restaurants and activities to walk to and tons of places to see. So, I didn't expect perfect and all and all, we had a great time. Especially our dog!

We loved our weekend at the corner cottage. So nice to be able to include our huge German Shepherd and be allowed to walk him on the beach. Coffee at sunrise and cocktails at sunset on the white sands of the Gulf. . . Hard to beat. Only a minute walk to the sand. Great restaurants nearby within walking distance. And our host, Captain Al and Karen were friendly as can be. Plus, they have bikes you can borrow. Cottage is old but well kept. Perfect for our family.

Owner's Response: Dear Gary: Thank you for your FOUR STAR REVIEW and letting everyone know the Blue Corner Cottage has a great location to the beach and walking distance to everything. The mattress is a new 100% foam mattress, we are sorry it was not comfortable and we are disappointed in it's performance. We are going to replace it with a conventional spring coil mattress. We are happy to hear you had a great time and will be returning. Capt.Al and Karen

Quaint Cottage Steps from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet place that accepts pets and is close to the beach check out these cottages! They are wonderful over 100 years old and Capt Al is great. Nothing fancy so if you are expecting daily house keeping and mints on the pillow this isn't for you. But if you want a rustic beach getaway then this is the place! I brought my two pugs and they loved it! Will definitely visit again!

And thanks for nice words about the Captain. Karen and Capt.Al
