The total house is a 3987 sq-ft 5 bedroom 4 bathroom home. The room for rent is upstairs and totally private from the rest of the house.
A 650 sq-ft loft/mother-in-law suite upstairs of a beautiful 3980sqft house, located in beautiful Clearwater FL. Located at 15miles from Tampa Int'l Airport, 15miles from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida (Clearwater beach) and walking distance from beautiful Safety Harbor. This room is upstairs and has its own air conditioning, a beautiful big bathroom with jacuzzi, a toilet with bidet, a big walk-in closet, a small fridge for sodas, a king size bed and a pull out sofa, a sitting area, TV, DVD. If you are visiting with more than 4 guests, there is plenty of room to add an additional pull out sofa, which we will provide with pleasure. So families with 4 kids are able to stay all in the same room, if desired. However, there is an extra $15/night charge per extra guest for 4+ guests.
During your stay, you will have your own privacy upstairs. The remaining of the house is all on the first floor. You may use the kitchen for cooking, as long as you clean up after yourself. There is a nice pool with hot jacuzzi, feel free to jump in any time. There are nice tanning beds to work on your tan and a hammock. Enjoy the beautiful weather in Florida.
The neighborhood is nice and peaceful. The location is excellent. It is only 15 miles from Tampa International Airport and usually there is no traffic. It takes about 22min driving across the bridge from Tampa to our house.
There is a public bus stop right in front of our house, but I can't give you any advise on the use of the bus system. If you rent a car, there is a parking spot on our driveway.
Sorry, no pets, unless small dogs that are happy to sleep in a crate at night. I have 2 very friendly loving beagles. My dogs sleep in a crate in the office room. During the day, my beagles roam around the first floor area of the house. They have a doggy door to go in and out the house as they please. They use the fenced backyard to do their business. If your small dog is friendly and can live with these rules, your dog is more than welcome. There will be a $15 non-refundable pet fee/night for each pet.
There is a $45 cleaning fee to prepare the room for the next guest. This fee is due upon booking.
50% of total is due upon booking, 50% due 30-day prior to arrival.
Once payments are made, there is no refund.
There is no refund for unused nights due to early departure. We offer rain checks in case of cancellation or early departures
We are a European family that moved to the US 10yrs ago. We are very easy going, friendly, hospitable, social but private. We are a happy and athletic busy family.
We love boating and relaxing by the Clearwater Islands during the weekends. Ask us about our boating offer as well, because we would love to take you out for a nice boating trip while you are staying at our house.
We are very honest, respectful and caring people. We hope to be able to host to the same kind of people.
We have traveled a lot, we speak several languages. We love to make other people feel at home in Clearwater Florida and hope to make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
I am confident you will love our house accommodation and you will totally love the Clearwater beaches, as we do too.
Ellen Nelissen purchased this house in 2007
We loved this property because of its location. It is located 15 miles from the airport and 10 miles from Clearwater Beach. We have the Tampa Bay on one side and the Mexican Gulf on the other side. We love to relax during the weekends and like to go boating. We have a choice between 2 different water locations and opportunities. The Tampa Bay is nice and big and you can do a lot of sport activities such as water skiing, wake boarding, wind surfing, ...
The Mexican Gulf side on the other side is more to relax by the beach or take a boating trip to the islands that are only accessible by boats. The locals like to drive their boats up there and have a quite and relaxed afternoon, BBQ on the beach, eat lunch, search for nice big shells, ....
The location is perfect for business as well. Tampa city is close. There is a lot of business opportunities.
The home is luxurious, beautiful, comfortable, bright and for renters very affordable compared to the competitive rental places in our area.
The house is rather large, so there is a lot of space and privacy. The upstairs in completely designed for visitors that like to stay in a separate part of our home. The suite has a separate AC. Since we are from Europe, we have a lot of European visitors throughout the year. The home is perfectly designed to offer privacy for host as well as for guests.
Our stay was from June 29-July 6, 2013. These accommodations were made available to us by loving friends & family via "Bethany's Hope" to grant our sick daughter her dream of meeting Winter the dolphin with the prosthetic tail who resides at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. We had no idea what to expect from this breathtaking Mother-in-Law suite, and were pleasantly surprised as we were welcomed more as an extended part of the family than as guests. The room was comfortable & simply stunning~ (you will find no better deal for your $$$). Having hosts that are more friendly and assistive than required is an added bonus that you will absolutely not find anywhere else! So thankful that our stay with them added to the sweet memories we will forever cherish...
The space was comfortable and private. Ellen was very hospitable. We did not spend much time at the room, but the amenities such as the pool and hot tub looked very nice.
Wij zijn een gezin dat uit 6 personen bestaat, en de kamer was ruim genoeg voor ons allen.
1 kingsize bed, 1 slaapbank en 2 eenpersoonsmatrassen.
Ellen en Hugo doen er alles aan om te zorgen dat je je thuis voelt bij hen. We mochten hun keuken en spullen gebruiken, en je kunt in de keuken heerlijk relaxed zitten. Heel licht en gezellig ingericht.
Er is een prachtige badkamer met fijne handdoeken en strandlakens.
Het hele huis ruikt fris en is schoon.
We hebben gebarbecued bij het zwembad en daarna heeft Hugo nog geholpen met schoonmaken. Hartstikke fijn.
Binnen een half uur zit je aan het strand bij Clearwater Beach en Safety Harbor zelf is ook mooi om even te kijken.
Bij aankomst waren zij zelf niet thuis, maar via een telefoontje gaf ze alles door en het was prima geregeld.
Dit huis is geweldig, en ik kan iedereen die naar Clearwater en omgeving gaat, dit huis aanraden.
Ellen en Hugo, heel erg bedankt voor jullie gastvrijheid. We hebben genoten.

Ellen and her family are very pleasant and accommodating
When we arrived Ellen greeted us at the door and was so kind. The room was pleasant and bright and clean. The pool was such a delight for our four year old daughter. Ellen and her family are very nice people and we would definitely stay again if we come out this way. It was a very nice experience.
