!We do NOT advertise on Craigslist!

'Sea Breeze' is a beautiful Southern home where you will enjoy a relaxing and memorable vacation with your loved ones! The Key-West-style house is situated in the upscale, tranquil neighborhood of Carlouel, just a minute stroll from the private beach access. Enjoy the Sunstate's beach life with its sugar-white sandy beaches and the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico! It's not unusual to see the dolphins as they are swimming by!

'Sea Breeze' offers everything you need for a relaxed and fun family vacation. The house has a heated pool with a spill-over spa and a fabulous outdoor grilling area. Three different patios and a water-view balcony guarantee cozy hours for reading, chatting or playing games. Enjoy total privacy, behind our picket fenced lawns, with lovely tropical landscaping.

Early evening, perhaps a glass of wine in hand, you may want to stroll to the beach gate to witness the famous flaming sunsets as they melt into the ocean. If you look to enjoy Florida's beach life at its best, away from the noise & crowds of highly populated resorts, this is your spot!

'Sea Breeze' is the perfect place for families, family reunions and couple retreats. The house has two master suites and two standard bedrooms. In one of the master suites there is a king bed and a twin size bed with trundle. In the other there is a king bed and a queen sized sofa sleeper. In each regular bedroom there are two twin beds.

About Tanja Pluess Utting

Hi! We are an English-Swiss couple living a succulent, loving, busy, crazy, bubbly, sometimes challenging life in Switzerland in a home full of kids (at the moment 4), dogs (2) and a huge passion for Florida! While Mike is working for an American company, Tanja is a passionate mum and building up her photography business - after having quit her job as a psychologist.

Tanja Pluess Utting purchased this house in 2014

Why Tanja Pluess Utting chose Clearwater Area

We fell in love with Florida many years ago and it still makes us come back year after year. We even got married on the beach in Clearwater and bought our first home in Carlouel on our wedding day. When we walked by 'Sea Breeze' for the first time we immediately wanted that house. But by then it was not for sale and later when it was, we could not afford it. But probably somehow it was meant to be - the house chose us and we chose the house and this is where we are now. We just started with the renovations and it will take a few months before 'Sea Breeze' will sparkle again - but it will!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family had a wonderful stay at Tanja's Sea Breeze property! We had just stayed at another property in Orlando on the same trip, before coming to Clearwater and everything was miles above Orlando. The house was stocked with every imaginable amenity. Things you don't even think of when you're at the grocery store were already in the house. The collection of DVDs was perfect in the evening for the kids or to get out of the afternoon heat for a bit. The pool was lovely and there were so many pool toys available. All in all, it made you feel like you were staying at your best friend's family house while they were away and anything you could want was already thought of and existed for her family. Great location and easy walk around the corner to private access beach. The sand is gorgeous and soft. The sunsets are stunning. The restaurants nearby are also a bit more varied than your expected American chains. And it was near enough drive to Tampa for a baseball game one afternoon. Keyless entry was very convenient and smart as well. We loved our visit and would definitely come again!

Great Multi-generational Vacation Get-a-Way

  • 5 of 5

Our three generations had a great time at Sea Breeze last week. The back yard pool was a center of enjoyment by all with a good variation of depth for all ages. The house was very nicely appointed with lots of sleeping options, towels, dishes, pots, pans, silverware, paper goods, etc. that worked out great for us. The beach was very close by and amazingly secluded. It was like we had it all to ourselves. The minimal auto traffic in the residential neighborhood was very nice. All in all, we had a great time on our vacation, and Sea Breeze was a major contributor to that enjoyment. We will definitely consider it again on any vacations to the Clearwater Beach area. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other family and friends.

Absolutely wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, it was clear we were going to have a wonderful holiday. Everything we could've possibly needed was there for us to use, and with three young children, this was a blessing! There was so much room for all of us to relax and enjoy our own space.

The beautiful, warm pool was thoroughly enjoyed by all from age 8 months to 67 years! It was the perfect temperature!

Thank you so much Tanja and Mike - you have been delightful to deal with from the first time I emailed and nothing has been too much trouble.

Thank you so much for sharing your idyllic home with us, we hope we'll be lucky enough to stay there again one day,

,

Abi, Dan and family x

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? There are not enough words to say how wonderful this entire process has been. From finding this beautiful house, to all of the prompt communication from Tanja, and finally our amazing stay in Clearwater.....we would rent this home again in a heartbeat! Tanja was so nice to work with; she answers all questions in a timely manner and is so sweet! The home itself was more than what we dreamed of! The pictures on Homeaway are EXACTLY what the house looks like. Spacious and comfortable, all of us were able to feel at home! The pool and spa were perfect for kids and adults and I think we used the grill every night! The private beach really was minutes away and it was nice to have it all to ourselves most days. The neighborhood itself was such a nice, upscale place just close enough to everything at Pier 60, and really not too far or hard to navigate to grocery stores. Thank you Tanja for opening your home to us. Hopefully we can make it back someday!
