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

Hi Everybody and thanks for visiting my profile. I am the property manager for this property any others. Originally from New Jersey, I came to Florida 30 years, to enjoy this tropical paradise during my Spring Break times. Once I spent time in Florida, I knew I wanted to live here. Having found Clearwater Beach to be the best beach in Florida, I moved here. When you come to visit Clearwater, myself and first mate, Karen will be happy to show you around.

Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info. purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Capt. Al is the property manager and guests relations. Contact him for info. chose Clearwater Beach

This mid-century apartment building was recently renovated as part of a Licensed Group Vacation Rental.

It's not a condo, not a hotel, but a fun, relaxed beach apartment just 700 or so steps to the beach for half the price of the condos just sitting in front on the sand.

What makes this apartment unique

No elevator to waste time in. Feels like your own private apartment or home by the beach. The balcony is fantastic as there is never ending entertainment right across the street at the famous Shipwreck Bar. This is the only New Orleans style balcony overlooking Mandalay Ave in Clearwater Beach. You can watch the Iron Woman, Bicycle races, and all the EVENTS right off your porch. This beach apartment is twice the size of most 2 bedroom rentals and offers lots of windows in all the rooms, and high ceilings. Has new central air and back up window units, has heat also.

Great Big Beach Apartment for half the price of the condos on the sand. New remodel, clean, airy, high end, high tech, but not a condo. Save $1000 and have more fun with the New Orleans Balcony. Only 2 bedroom with daily rentals offered. Located one flight up in a mid century 4 unit apartment building. For chilled out fun loving beach lovers. If you want a new condo, please rent at Surfside Condos and Villas of Clearwater directly on the sand , same street, same beach and you will pay a lot more. Not for super stuffy, picky, fussy, hotel lover guests. For chilled our guests who want a fun beach vacation.

Nice stove and refrigerator, the decor was an accumulation of different styles. The deadbolt would not lock and the door to the street wasn’t ever locked or if it was we weren’t given a key. The place was clean. Captain Al was friendly.

Owner's Response: Dear Ron: Thank you for your letting other guests know the new 2018 Kitchenaid Deisgner series appliances are nice, and that decor was different styles. We never lock the main entrance downstairs to all the apartments and if you had difficulty with your deadbolt, you could have notified the manager who would have been there in a jiffy. Thank you for letting other travelers know the New Orleans Beach Apartment was clean and that Capt.Al was friendly The dated beach apartment is decorated with real Tommy Bahama furniture in a heavy European style, to complement the New Orleans theme. The listing is very clear this is not a new condo, but a remodeled mid century building and not for fussy, picky travelers. Your subjective opinions may help future travelers as we want all our guests to be totally satisfied with the beach vacation rental and experience. Capt.Al and Karen

Experience the local flavor...

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was truly an experience of the local flavor of the Clearwater Beach community. Set on the fringe of the bustling street full of shops and eateries, it is quieter but within steps of anything you could want, including the beach. Being part of a full square of cottages gave it a secure feel and community atmosphere. But the best part is the crew that keeps this entire complex in top shape, they are friendly and truly care that you enjoy your stay. Because it is a small group, it is easy to feel at home and welcomed. The apartment itself was huge, large enough for my myself and my two adult children (who need their privacy) to co-exist harmoniously for 4 whole nights. Not an easy task. We also had enough room to host members of our family who live in the area, leading up to their big day on the Star Lite Majesty Wedding Cruise. What a FABULOUS experience that was, the highlight of our vacation and I highly recommend you try one of their dinner cruises. It's right down the street from the Blue Wave, which I also highly recommend. Thank you Capt. Al, Karen, Gail and Rodney for a trip to remember and all your help in making it so.

Great Vacation and Yes Cool Beach Apartment

  • 5 of 5

With 5 kids and 2 adults, we were very lucky to find a two bedroom rental for just a few days. I loved this Beach Apartment. For the price a double at the Hilton, we got a large new beautiful kitchen with high end appointment, and with a dishwasher, saved a ton on meals, 3 beds and a pull out bed, 3 great big flat TV s with all the Movie Channel, a great big balcony, and when comming off the beach , freezing cold air conditioning. The apartment was beautifully decorate with very nice furniture and paintings. We were a few blocks from all the main attractions in Clearwater Beach, less a minute to the sand, and really enjoyed being part of the Clearwater Cottages group of Cottages. Capt. Al and Karen the housekeeper are fantastic hosts who are there to make sure you have everything you need. Being from out of state we did not have to buy beach chairs, and beach toys as everything in the shared backyard is for everyone to enjoy. Never expected quality like the WEBER BBQ GRILL, Tommy Bahama Furniture, and high end kitchen appliances .Capt. Al is World Class, hospitable , helpful, and lots of fun. Even on our rainy week, we enjoyed the Beach Apartment and beach. Fortunately after the rain, we usually got to watch incredible sunsets as we would run down to the beach every night. Even in the rain, we had fun, as there was a very large covered balcony off the living room where we got to watch, as advertised, the Tourist taking photo shoots in front of the Shipwreck Bar. We found the rental, large and spacious, clean and comfortable, a great value and look forward to staying here again next time in Clearwater.

Wonderful stay at the New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay. The place is wonderful, clean and very convenient. The beach is less than a block and there are beach chairs available. Wonderful food, great bars, easy access as it's only a few block walk to anything. We really can't say enough and can't wait to make plans to visit nest year.
