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
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!

Beautiful house In a beautiful location. Fully equipped for every kind of need.
We really enjoy the time we spent in this beatutiful house! 2 minutes walking to the beach. Nice patio and pool. The best equipped kitchen I ever found in a renting house. And when we had a little issue we received a prompt response from the owner. I truly recommend it
Dear Mauro, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are happy that you and your family had such a great stay at Sea Breeze and appreciated our well-stocked kitchen. I love to cook myself and a well-equipped kitchen is just a must :-). We enjoyed having you as our guests and would love to have you back! Warmly, Tanja
Just returned from a wonderful week at Sea Breeze. The house was everything promised and more. We had all the space we needed. The house was welcoming and filled with more than expected. The location was ideal with a minimal walk to the beach. The outdoor spaces were lovely and the pool ideal. Would go back in a heartbeat. Truly a most relaxing and enjoyable vacation!
Dear Ann, Thank you so much for your fantastic review. We are so delighted that you and your family had such a relaxing and enjoyable stay at Sea Breeze and loved the house, its tropical outdoor spaces and its proximity to the beach. Sea Breeze is indeed a great home for a family vacation as it offers a lot of indoor and outdoor space to unwind and laze around. Thank you again for staying with us. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again. Warmly, Tanja
Sea Breeze was the perfect home for family's Spring Break vacation!!!
The owners & management staff couldn't have been nicer. They greeted us on our arrival. House was very well stocked, more so than any other home we've rented from VRBO in the past. Safe, quiet location. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone. Bay on one side, beach on the other & plenty of space for our family of 10, perfect vacation with great memories made.
Dear Denise, Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so happy that you and your family had such a great stay at Sea Breeze and made some wonderful memories. It was so nice meeting you and having you as our guests. Wishing you all the best. Warmly, Tanja
Wonderful Spring Break
Had a wonderful visit to Clearwater Beach and Sea Breeze. Very well equipped kitchen, plenty space to spread out, lots of outdoor seating options, and the plants and vegetation made it feel very secluded. Large dining table was a plus, heated pool was a must this week, great selection of pool and beach toys, plus a couple bicycles. All in a quiet location, but very easy walk to the beach and convenient to the restaurants and "town" area. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Dear Tony, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. I am so pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Sea Breeze and appreciated the well-equipped kitchen and large dining table. As I am a passionate cook myself I know what a difference it makes to have a nice kitchen to prepare family meals in. I am also happy that you enjoyed the secluded tropical garden with the many outdoor seating areas. This is indeed a bit special. We hope you will travel to Clearwater Beach again soon and let us take care of you and your family. Warmly, Tanja
Their properties are true to what appears on line!
We have stayed at three of Tanja and Mike’s properties. They are very attentive to their guests. We have enjoyed each one as much as the other according to our needs.
Julia and Gabby who cleaned Sea Breeze, in preparation for our stay, went above and beyond to make it sparkle with cleanliness!
Dear Laurel, Thank you so much for your kind review. We are glad that you and your family enjoyed Sea Breeze as much as our other two vacation homes. As always, it was a pleasure sharing our home with you and we look forward to your next visit. Warmly, Tanja
A great family vacation spot
The Sea Breeze is well equipped to handle a family of eight. The bedrooms offered privacy for everyone. The kitchen was adequate for cooking family dinners. We had a lot of fun in the backyard pool with the whole family. The private beach was just a short walk away and the house had beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys to use.
Dear Marilyn, Thank you so much for your nice feedback. It is a pleasure that you and your family enjoyed a lovely vacation at Sea Breeze. The pool and BBQ area are indeed a lot of fun and especially families with kids love the spacious garden. Thank you again for staying with us. Warmly, Tanja
