Why Mike Sanders chose Clearwater Area

Romantic cottage for people that want to get away from crowded beach areas and relax in the quiet nature rich seclusion in Palm Harbor. Still close to many activities when you want them.

See satellite map to appreciate the privacy and open water. It's simply incredible. Bikes available to tour the area and Pinellas trails 38 miles. Propane BBQ cooker, lounger and table with 4 chairs on the deck. Free cable TV and WiFi. Watch the wonders of Nature in the Osprey Nest Cottage. Call Mike today 727-409-8000 or text .

Perfect Weekend Getaway House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the cottage! It was the perfect place for my husband and I to get away for the weekend. The house was clean and full of everything we might need for our time there. We will definitely go back!

Relaxing, quiet location, lovely view

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect cottage for two! We loved how nice and quiet it was and the sunsets were beautiful from the dock. The deck was great to sit in the mornings and watch birds.

Our goal was a quiet, relaxing weekend and take in some Greek food and shops in Tarpon Springs. We enjoyed a fabulous breakfast at Spirou's and the food at Mr. Souvlaki was delicious! We also took a boat tour with Odossey Tours which was very informative and we would highly recommend them.

Mike was great to work with as well. Very responsive and helpful! Great little place!

Beautiful view!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage for (2). Great location to all the beaches, restaurants, bars, etc.

Rusty's Bellies in Tarpon springs a few miles away had the best crab cakes, hush puppies and grouper bites!! We brought our kayaks but simply ran out of time to enjoy them as it was a last minute booking but very enjoyable weekend! We will be back for sure!

Quiet and Scenic

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage for two if you enjoy a quiet setting on the waterfront with great views. Location is private and quiet yet within minutes of recreational activities, groceries, and eating establishments. We enjoyed being adjacent to Wall Springs park and the bike trails. The cottage is clean and neat with all the basic necessities. Sitting on the deck watching and listening to all the various birds, as well as the tide changes in the bayou made the location perfect. The owner was very friendly and helpful, but also very low-key. We had a great time and it is one of the best spots we have rented.

Peaceful Bay View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fabulous 6 night stay at this warm and charming cottage. It is bright, clean and fully

stocked with everything you might need. The best part is the unparalleled view from the deck. In the morning we enjoyed the many shore birds, herons, a kestrel and several osprey while we had breakfast. The beautiful trees make the deck a delight at any time of the day. And the sunsets were not to be missed.

The cottage is very near the Pinellas bike trail for walking or biking and centrally located to almost anything in this part of Florida you would want to visit. But, it's location makes it quiet and peaceful.

We have rented many properties on VRBO, and it is easy to say that this is one of our favorites.

Quiet, shady, and a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable cottage for two. The listing was very accurate, property is clean & well-maintained, and the owner provided GREAT customer service. I mentioned it would be nice to have a mirror over the dresser, and maybe some coasters. When we got back from our bike ride, mirror and coasters were waiting for us by the front door!

We visit family every July in the Palm Harbor area, and this was the perfect location for all our favorite activities. It's close to great restaurants, grocery stores, and destinations like Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island, and Dunedin. It's also very close (at the beginning of the street!) to our favorite thing, the Fred Marquis Pinellas Bike Trail.

You'll be hard-pressed to find a more relaxing place. It's so quiet, has lots of shade, and the views from the cottage cannot be beat. We're hoping to stay at the Osprey Nest Cottage again next July.
