Thank you for visiting the property managers profile. I am Capt. Al, the property Manager this and other rentals .Originally from New Jersey I have always enjoyed the Jersey shore. After traveling around the world dozens of times, I have come to appreciate the natural beauty and great lifestyle offered at Clearwater Beach. I hope when you arrive, you also will find out how wonderful this little island is. Most weekends in summer I am out on the boat, but here to make sure you have a great beach vacation.
Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info. purchased this apartment in 2007
This licensed group vacation resort dwelling is located between Clearwater Cottages and in the north end of Clearwater Beach is where there is still that Old Florida Charm with streets of small beach houses and cottages. Nice to walk around and enjoy where guests can still sit on the front porch and relax with Gulf breezes and swaying Palm Trees.This property is surrounded by old Florida cottages and Beach houses. The Hideaway Beach Apartment is in a 4 unit building on the first floor. It shares a common back yard with Clearwater Cottages with great big tress. real Tiki Hut and Gazebo.There are 6 cute real beach cottages in this licensed vacation resort dwelling and 4 beach apartments.
Daily rentals availble and any day check in. Enjoy an entire small house for the price of hotel room. Just steps from the best part of Clearwater beach, away from the busy day tripper beach with the parking lots, yet just 5 blocks walk to Pier 60 . Full kitchen saves you money, and most important the beach is just past a few other cottages. Located across from Surfside Condos and Villas of Clearwater, and a block from Sandpearl Hotel, you get to enjoy the same world-class beach for half the price. Features full kitchens.
Our time at the grand view cottage will be remembered for the rest of lives. Capt. Al and first mate ( k) were the best at showing and telling us the best places to go and see. We came to Clearwater beach to see winter the dolphin, but left with so much more. The beach cottages are like your home on the beach, not a beach house or condo but like home.There is really no need to drive after you arrive. The beaches at the cottages are not crowded. Like the condo`s. The cottages are a place to relax, be yourself at the beach. Don`t expect to be waited on hand and foot. It is not that type of place. Capt. Al goes well out of his way to insure that you have a wonderful time while you are there. You can cook in side, or out on the grill. You don`t want to miss out on the many great restaurants within blocks. You can walk or ride a bike or take one of the trollies. Oh not to forget you are at one of the most beautiful beaches that you have ever dreamed of. Oh the sunsets there are breath taking. Even the locals come out almost every evening to see the sunsets at Clearwater beach. Parking can be a challenge on weekends or after 3:00 pm, but at the cottages / there`s no need to drive. There are trollies / bikes and these ( carts ) that take you any where you want to go on the beach. If you want to drive to Tampa or along the beach south to sight see / do it in the morning. The traffic is almost none. I must say that the cottages of Clearwater beach are not the place to have a wild party. Yet a place to build a life time of memories.The grand view cottage and Capt. Al along with first mate miss ( K ) will forever remain in my and my 11 yr old son`s memories. THANK YOU GUYS . jAMES AND SON aNDREW
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cottages. The location was fabulous, the service was impeccable. We had a few needs that were addressed immediately. I have no hesitation to recommend to anyone. The only drawback for us was the level of luxury was not quite ideal for our family. We knew this going in to it, and we know we saved a good amount of money, but at the end of the day, these are 100 year old cottages. They are very well maintained and clean, but they are not new. As long as potential renters are aware of this, they will have a great experience.
They misrepresent the dollar amount to secure the reservation. It is said that the amount will go towards the daily fee however this is NOT the case. They charged me this extra on top of the 2 night rental and I had to call multiple times to get my money back! It took 5 days to get my money back and I only stayed there 2 nights!
The bed is literally leaning down so much you feel like you are somewhat upside down. We finally had to move our heads to the bottom of the bed the last night.
The keys we were given did not even work so we ended up locking ourselves out the first time we left.
The condo/cottage smells really musty and old.
There are tons of other rentals around this area! Look around before you rent here.
Gayle and Capt Al are an incredible team of hospitality! We chose Clearwater Cottages to celebrate a birthday weekend on the beach and were not disappointed. They anticipated our needs as soon as we arrived and made us so relaxed in the Pineapple Cottage. The cottage has a cute beach theme with comfortable furniture and a full kitchen with updated countertops and the neatest bamboo floors! The space was also perfect for our small dogs and we were impressed with the pet friendliness! The location is also great, as it is within steps to the beach and local restaurants on the beach (Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, Palm Pavilion). We would definitely return for another stay! Thank you Capt Al & Gayle!
Second year to come to the Clearwater Cottages. Perfect location, easy access to beach. Captain Al and Karen super nice and always available for anything! Super vacation again!!!
We stayed in the Lemon Cottage for 10 days and it was AMAZING!!! Love the front seating area. You can people watch. The unit was gorgeous. Very clean. Capt. Al and his wife were so welcoming. Even with our dogs. Anything we needed they were right there. If you are looking for a true beach bumming vacation spot this is it!! Reminded me so much of Key West. Just bring your flip flips and your umbrella drinks and kick back and relax. You will feel rejuvenated once your vaca is over. You will hate leaving. Thanks Capt Al & wife! I will be back soon.
