About Cindy

My sister & I grew up on this beach in the summer. We spent our summers shelling, fishing, boating & windsurfing. Our parents still have a beach cottage right next door. We live in Tampa so we try to get our there as often as we can.

Cindy purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Cindy chose Clearwater Area

Located in a quaint little town of Belleair Beach and right on wide white sandy beaches. Great fishing, boating, spectacular natural wildlife and amazing restaurants. 5 minutes to Clearwater beach,voted 'Best Beach of 2013'.

In addition to our prime location, there are plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, charcoal grill and assigned private parking.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking the beach, sunsets, shelling, fishing, dolphin watching, kayaking, boating.

Perfect for spring break!!

  • 5 of 5

The best part about this place is you are SO close to the beach! And equally as close to the pool! It is a very quiet stretch of beach and with only 4 other units, the complex itself was nicely private. All while still so close to groceries, restaurants and things to do in either direction, to Clearwater or down Gulf Blvd toward Indian Rocks. The cottage is just as described, and actually even better than pictured. Although not huge, it was fine for our family of five, the bunk room was great for the kids and the couches were perfect for the few times we were inside. Used the convenient back door from the pool to the bathroom a lot. We even enjoyed many night time swims after sunset with the great lights and jets in the pool. Bring quarters for the laundry and you just have to time it right, only one of the other units was using the laundry too when we were there. Plenty of beach toys, towels, beach chairs and the bottle of wine when we arrived was appreciated! We use VRBO a lot and this was one of our best trips ever!!

Great little spot on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Property is a typical ocean home, but is very clean and had all the necessities and space needed to have a great relaxing trip for a family of four. We used the kitchen to cook meals throughout the week and felt at home. The best part of the property is the location to the ocean, which is steps away and can be seen through the windows. Heated pool was also a big hit as it was used as a change of pace to the beach The pool is shared with several other homes, but has plenty of space to still enjoy it. Property is close to many different restaurants and fun activities which we enjoyed throughout the week. A quiet place to unwind and enjoy the best that the beach offers!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage on the beach. Our kids loved it. Pool on one side and the beach on the other. Located on a nice quiet part of the beach.

The place is dated but clean. Has a lot of necessary items in cabinets that will save you money at the grocery. Condiments, spices etc. A bottle of wine left for you upon your arrival was a nice touch! There is laundry near the pool you just have to get in before the maids of other cottages get in.

Peace of heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

We just left the cottage and I can't tell you enough what a great time we had! First the house was literally steps away from the beach... The view is beautiful and the beach is the best beach I have ever been to..warm and calm perfect for kids to play freely which was definitely the best part for us! The pool is a good size and had jets which was a great plus! The house itself was clean and i would say that it was even better then the pictures, it was the perfect size for our family and with everything in hand made our stay so much easier! The owner Cindy was always a call away if we needed and she was always super nice and helpful! We are absolutely coming back soon since our kids didn't want to leave!

Our summer beach house

  • 4 of 5

We have been going here for 5 yrs, and consider this our beach house. We love that you can see the beach, hear the beach, and walk to it in 15 steps or less. The beach is clean, lots of shells, and the Gulf of Mexico, what more could you want? If the beach isn't your bag, there is a lovely pool also very clean with assorted toys and floats, that is shared with 4 other units. The kitchen is equipped with the standard stuff, and then all the spices in the cabinet. That is very nice because if you have to buy them it gets expensive. The owners Kathy and her sister Cindy are very nice,reply right away to texting, and always leave a nice bottle of wine for us. We love this place and will continue to come here every year.
