These rentals are perfect for large families with children and pets who want a small house with a full kitchen and backyard.

About Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info.

Capt. Al, the Property Manager, Reservaton Agent, and Cottage Counselor is originally from New Jersey, and was a camp counselor at Club Getaway. Having enjoyed living close the Jersey Shore my dream has always been to live at the beach in Florida. For 35 years I have enjoyed this beautiful little island. Here we get to swim in the Gulf of Mexico as the sun sets, enjoy local fresh fish, and have great congenial neighbors who are friendly and enjoy the same 'Salt Life' . When you come to visit, Capt. Al and his first mate, Karen will be happy to show you around.

These are the very last real beach cottages left in Clearwater Beach so close to the beach. Designated as the Old Florida District, by the City's Beach by Design, they give you the feel of Old Florida, in day 's gone by. These cottages are in North Beach in a quaint area with cute beach houses . These cottage and a few Guest Houses and small houses on these 3 streets are the very last of the Old Florida District in Clearwater Beach

What makes this cottage unique

Beach Cottages are fun. Cute little houses right by the sea. No cold elevators and halls to walk down. No stuffy neighbors. Just walk out the door and one hundred steps and you enjoy the best beaches in America. Most are much larger than the rooms called cottages in the large older homes in the neighborhood. Most are real little houses or a duplex with full new kitchens , new Stainless Steel appliances, and entertainment systems in most bedrooms.

Excellent vacation and staff

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Captain Al and Karen and staff. We stayed in the lemon cottage. Perfect old school cottage updated with everything you need. The beach is literally at the end of the street and everything's within walking distance. We enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking mandalay avenue every night and with coffee in the morning. We enjoyed the comings and goings of the quiet north end of Clearwater beach. Al and Karen are the nicest people you will ever meet. If you want a quaint, quiet home away from home this is for you. Thank you for a great vacation. D&J Michigan.

Capt. Al and his wife were so accomodating. The property is perfectly situated near the beautiful beach yet far enough away from the traffic and noise in the tourist areas. We travelled with our adult kids and dog and loved the cottages. We recommend this for anyone anytime of year.

A unique Gulf Coast getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our cottage was only steps away from Clearwater Beach and it was clean and roomy for my wife, myself and our two dogs. Despite its central location the neighborhood is quiet, and we got a kick our of watching everyone heading to the beach each evening for the glorious sunsets. With our schedule disrupted by Hurricane Matthew, we especially appreciated the flexibility Al, Karen and Gail provided in making sure we had a place to stay. A really special place to stay for anyone bored with the lodging chain setup.
