4 Br (sleeps 10), 3.5 Ba, Upscale Family Home With Private Beach Access


!We do NOT advertise on Craigslist!

'Sea Breeze' is a beautiful Southern home where you will enjoy a relaxing and memorable vacation with your loved ones! The Key-West-style house is situated in the upscale, tranquil neighborhood of Carlouel, just a minute stroll from the private beach access. Enjoy the Sunstate's beach life with its sugar-white sandy beaches and the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico! It's not unusual to see the dolphins as they are swimming by!

'Sea Breeze' offers everything you need for a relaxed and fun family vacation. The house has a heated pool with a spill-over spa and a fabulous outdoor grilling area. Three different patios and a water-view balcony guarantee cozy hours for reading, chatting or playing games. Enjoy total privacy, behind our picket fenced lawns, with lovely tropical landscaping. Take a dip - day or night, in our gorgeous, heated swimming pool & spa! Early evening, perhaps a glass of wine in hand, you may want to stroll to the beach gate to witness the famous flaming sunsets as they melt into the ocean. If you look to enjoy Florida's beach life at its best, away from the noise & crowds of highly populated resorts, this is your spot!

'Sea Breeze' is the perfect place for families, family reunions and couple retreats. The house has two master suites and two standard bedrooms. In one of the master suites there is a king bed and a twin size bed with trundle. In the other there is a king bed and a queen sized sofa sleeper. In each regular bedroom there are two twin beds. A portable crib is available. Our bedrooms and bath suites are individually off in separate areas of our home guaranteeing privacy to our guests. 'Sea Breeze' can host 10 to maximum 12 people.

Carlouel - is an up-scale, safe residential neighborhood that welcomes families and couples. It is not suitable for 'spring breakers' or any group that wants an environment that allows loud parties.

The area of Clearwater offers an astonishing diversity of leisure activities. If you enjoy sports you might want to try out the numerous jogging, skating, biking, golfing, hiking, swimming, surfing, tennis or fitness opportunities. In Florida's state parks and on the breathtaking beaches you will experience the beauty and serenity of nature.

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 Area

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family had a wonderful stay at Tanja's Sea Breeze property! We had just stayed at another property in Orlando on the same trip, before coming to Clearwater and everything was miles above Orlando. The house was stocked with every imaginable amenity. Things you don't even think of when you're at the grocery store were already in the house. The collection of DVDs was perfect in the evening for the kids or to get out of the afternoon heat for a bit. The pool was lovely and there were so many pool toys available. All in all, it made you feel like you were staying at your best friend's family house while they were away and anything you could want was already thought of and existed for her family. Great location and easy walk around the corner to private access beach. The sand is gorgeous and soft. The sunsets are stunning. The restaurants nearby are also a bit more varied than your expected American chains. And it was near enough drive to Tampa for a baseball game one afternoon. Keyless entry was very convenient and smart as well. We loved our visit and would definitely come again!

Well appointed, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to vacation in. We were lulled to sleep every night by the sound of palm trees swaying in the breeze. This home is beautifully landscaped... palms, birds of paradise and flowering shrubs surround the property providing complete privacy. The beach is right around the corner and is virtually deserted... we were in heaven. Thanks so much for a great space Tanja. I know we will be back.

Perfect place for families with small children

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this home!!! We had two young kids under 15 months and were so happy to find newer pack and plays, two nice quality highchairs, strollers and tons of beach/pool toys. The house was immaculate and were amazed at the kitchen/cooking tools. The beds were nicer than any hotel we've ever stayed in and the beautiful décor made us feel like we were in luxury. Great location in a quiet neighborhood! We've already recommended to our friends.

Amazing getaway!

Everything about this home is exceptional! Even the magazines were current, which made reading and coffee on the patio in the morning perfect. Tanja has definitely thought of everything. We would definitely stay again.

Perfect house for larger groups, nice pool, steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

I honestly couldn't write a more positive review of our experience at Sea Breeze. After much research, we chose this house based on the price and location. The owner was very responsive via email, which was great to see. A group of 10 of us (guys, 40 year old+) stayed for 3 nights in September. First, the location was perfect. It's in the northern end of Clearwater Beach, private enough but also accessible to everything. We even made the trip to downtown Tampa one night via Uber and it really wasn't bad -- 35 mins or so. The house itself was clean and in great shape -- a truly lovely beach home. The grounds are really cool, lots of trees, bushes and other foliage to make it feel totally private even though it's fairly close to other houses. There are a lot of different rooms which actually worked well for us as there were plenty of bedrooms. The common areas were big enough but we didn't really stay inside much as there are three different patio areas including the pool area (I do recommend buying some bug spray). Everything was provided -- from linens and showering towels to beach towel and pool toys. It's literally a 90 second walk to the beach entrance, which is nice and private as you need a key to enter. Parking at the house was not a problem as the driveway easily fit 4-5 cars. We grilled, we swam, we played cards around the big dining room table -- a truly memorable weekend. Highly recommend. A+.

Perfect, relaxing vacation! Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (kids aged 12, 12, 8) stayed at Sea Breeze for 1 week. Tanja was prompt in sending a TON of information beforehand so we were well prepared. We flew into Orlando since it was a direct flight and drove ~2 hours to Carlouel. The house was absolutely PERFECT. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own quiet space. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. The pool area is completely private and beautifully lined with greenery, palms, trees, and flowers. The kitchen was the best-stocked VRBO we've ever rented. More than enough dishes and cutlery....even a WAFFLE maker! The house is beautifully decorated in a modern beach-theme. The walk to the beach took about 3 minutes and was the warmest water and softest sand we've experienced on vacation! There were plenty of beach towels, beach toys, chairs and buggy to take everything down was great. We made use of the bikes to tour around the area a few times and to pick up a couple of things at the convenience store. The older 2 kids and I walked from the beach down to the pier where it was extremely busy. It was nice essentially having a private beach to ourselves! In town we ate dinner at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill and the Clear Sky Cafe. Both were excellent! I would recommend this property to larger families or families to share. It would be great for a small family reunion or a vacation with the grandparents! Tanja - thank you again for everything!
