About Jennifer Goss

My husband Sean and I moved to Florida in 2010. Sean lived in German for most of his childhood, he speaks fluent German. We love this area and enjoy the beach lifestyle. We love old Volkswagen's and have a couple on-site. We are low stress and don't sweat the small stuff.

Jennifer Goss purchased this studio in 2010

Why Jennifer Goss chose Clearwater Area

We are listed on multiple sites with great reviews. We offer a unique space (300 sq feet) that offers a quiet, safe, and secluded environment that is close to area attractions. We are a short bike ride over the bridge to the sand. If your looking for a small space, close to everything, with a great private outdoor space, at a fair price, this is it.

We are great for people staying longer periods of time because we have Laundry (washer/dryer) in the space, cable TV with 24-hour news station, and we provide a private router with password solely to the space. Downloads are fast and internet is high speed. Great for the business traveler.

What makes this studio unique

We have a private entrance to the unit, private parking and a private backyard for your furry friends to roam securely. It's a unique space, best described as giving a beach/nature feel. You will not find a unit that has a large private yard, hot tub, close to the beach, that has the outdoor space and security for your pet.

Excellent experience! Rental was secure, spotless, warmly decorated, with every need anticipated. Hot tub, gas grill, fire pit, and seating for plenty in a large backyard area protected by a 6ft privacy fence. This area whimsically decorated w lights and fence art. Even the walkway back to the rental entrance is nicely decorated. This rental is well located to public beach access, within walking distance of a nature park that has a largely populated turtle pond w feeding options and birds of prey displays, and very close to excellent restaurants that serve the very popular stone crab. The rental is w/I minutes of Gulf Blvd, which is a lovely costal drive and the path to everything a tourist would want or need. The renters took excellent care of me! Ever available for anything needed. I had access to beach...everything! Chairs, umbrellas, towels, blankets, picnic basket, carryall bags, sunscreen, even sunburn treatments. This rental anticipates everything! It is top shelf and very worthy of 5 star! Theresa M.

I can't express how perfect this was for our trip. When I noticed the sign that says "home is where my dog is" I knew that I was staying with great people & Jenny & Sean are amazing people. They have the place stocked with anything you would need for your trip as well. I can't wait to come back and stay here again!

Perfect for Most!

  • 5 of 5

We were here last winter and I forgot to post review. Stayed the whole month and enjoyed it. Location is ideal for the beach and also local stores and restaurants. You can fish the backwaters at the marina which is literally down the street. The place is small, if you are OK with that, and who you are with, you'll love it. If you are a "tourist" that needs a high end hotel on the beach, maybe not for you. Having said that, the yard is large and private. Fenced in , nice trees, fire pit, and tub. Good gas grill too. If you are a traveler looking for a great deal on quaint, quiet place in a good location , this is for you. If you can walk 3/4 mile to the beach, or ride a bicycle, this place is perfect. Also, the owners are not afraid to spend money and put back into the place. I think they just got rolling a couple a years ago and we could see they are not keeping every nickel like many vaca rentals. Lots of new things and improvements. The owners Shane and Jenny never bothered us, but were there for anything we needed. We liked them very much. Teddy too.

It was everything we needed for our beach getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Sean and Jennifer have pretty much thought of everything to make your stay with them as comfortable, relaxing, and hassle-free as can be. Ours was all that and more! It was absolutely perfect for the two of us. Just when we thought the weather was going to turn us into homebodies on our vacation, these two willingly offered plenty of options and suggestions to keep us content. Their adorable rental is literally no more than 5 minutes from beach access. Indian Rocks Beach is beautiful! It is a lesser known tourist's option. HINT HINT! To beat the crowds, this is the beach - rain or shine, night or day. On the off beach nights, when you want to be home, the backyard turns into a mini private oasis. It includes a jacuzzi surrounded by tranquil lighting and a picnic area.

If you are looking for clean, friendly, outgoing hosts who make you feel welcome whether you're coming or going or stopping for a quick chat ... we highly recommend that you stay with Sean & Jennifer. You won't regret it!

We'll be back again and again. Thank you for welcoming us into your home!
