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. A portable crib is available. Our bedrooms and bath suites are individually off in separate areas of our home guaranteeing privacy to our guests. 'Sea Breeze' can host 10 to maximum 12 people.

Carlouel - is an up-scale, safe residential neighborhood that welcomes families and couples. It is not suitable for 'spring breakers' or any group that wants an environment that allows loud parties.

The area of Clearwater offers an astonishing diversity of leisure activities. If you enjoy sports you might want to try out the numerous jogging, skating, biking, golfing, hiking, swimming, surfing, tennis or fitness opportunities. In Florida's state parks and on the breathtaking beaches you will experience the beauty and serenity of nature.

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!

Fantastic family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Breeze was the ideal vacation home for our family of 6 adults and 4 children. The kids loved its pool, and its location close to the beach was ideal. The home is outfitted with everything you could possibly ask for in a rental home, from the BBQ, to movies, to novels and current magazines, to 3 different areas for sitting outside. The owner of this property has thought of everything. The home was also big enough that there was plenty of separate space for everyone. We would definitely recommend Sea Breeze to anyone looking for a vacation rental home in the Clearwater Beach area.

Beautiful home away from home! Plenty of room for all of us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our vacation. We enjoyed the pool and the beach was very close. The home had everything we needed except the oven wasn't working. The owners were very apologetic about that and were very helpful with all our questions. We had a great time and made many memories.

We tried to have it fixed before your arrival but as some parts needed to be ordered it was not possible. Thank you again for your understanding. I wish you all the best and hope to have you back. Warmly, Tanja

A lovely little spot away from the crowds

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed Sea Breeze with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren ages 2 and 4. The pool was perfect for them, the bedroom set up was just right and gave all of us some private time. The kitchen is well appointed. The private beach area is wonderful and far from the busy Clearwater Beach area.

Holiday vacation beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Breeze the week before Christmas and had the most wonderful stay. The house was set up beautifully and includes everything you could possibly need. It has convenient access to the private beach and close to restaurants and shops. When we were not walking and playing at the beach we were chilling in the hot tub. It was our kids first time at the beach and definitely will not be the last. This was a much needed vacation for our family and may not be our only stay at Sea Breeze. You will not be disappointed with renting this beautiful beach home.

We are so happy that you and your family truly enjoyed your vacation with us and that your kids made first wonderful memories at the beach. This is how it should be! Wishing you all the best and looking forward to having you back. Warmly, Tanja

Beautiful vacation. Lovely home. Easy to deal with owner of property.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time dealing with an online vacation property and I'm happy to say that it went very smoothly, The house was great for my large family and the Clearwater area was extremely beautiful and enjoyable. The owner was cordial and prompt in her communication with me which was great. Except for a couple of insects (which is to be expected in a tropical climate) I was very happy with my choice of vacation home!
