About John and Sharon Westling

The Cottage is Located on our property but detached from the main residence where we reside. As Hosts we are available for information, directions, suggestions and help.

Why John and Sharon Westling chose Clearwater

Our favorite little town that we highly recommend is Dunedin. Just a few miles and minutes away it is located right on the water. We lived there for 2 years and absolutely loved it! They have many beautiful parks and areas to enjoy a picnic and those sunsets! The Pinellas Trail goes right through the center of Dunedin. There are Cafes to enjoy right on the Pinellas Trail or just a few steps from it. On the 2nd Friday of every month they have their 'Wine and Art Walk' which the shop keepers remain open late and invite you in and treat you like 'family'. You have an opportunity to win wonderful prizes too! Every Saturday they have a Farmer's Market in the park there with wonderful selections to purchase and enjoy.

My new Christmas tradition!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd Christmas that I have stayed at the Cozy Cottage while visiting family in the area. The word Cozy is perfect when describing this cottage. It is well maintained both inside & out with a beach theme interior decor.

The accommodations are comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen and very comfortable bed and furniture. It is a peaceful environment just right for relaxing.

The owners are warm and friendly willing to do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable.

The location is perfect with easy access to both the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay as well as shopping.

As I said, yhis is my new home for the holidays.

Such a great little place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I on a last minute whim decided to go to Florida to visit with friends and celebrate our anniversary of our engagement, which happened on Honeymoon Island. John and Sharon were so accommodating and so easy to work with. We had our cocker spaniel with us and they welcomed all of us with open arms. The hospitality was incredible and the cottage itself was in spectacular shape. It was perfect for a quick getaway and I will definitely keep this spot in mind the next time we vacation in the area.

Quaint cottage ideal for exploring Clearwater

  • 5 of 5

First, Sharon and John were a pleasure to meet. They are friendly, outgoing, and filled with recommendations and places to explore. They are also very accommodating, allowing us free use of their yard for our two dogs to run around or parking in their driveway.

The cottage is conveniently located to nearby amenities (restaurants, highway, beaches, etc.), but set in a residential neighborhood that gives you a feeling of seeing what it'd be like to live like a local.

Though the cottage is very small, it is clean, charming, and decorated in a way that has a welcoming feel to it after a long day of exploring and the landscaping has a cool, tropical vibe with lush plants and flowers growing. Inside, it has everything you'd realistically need, such as high-speed Internet that I was able to use for work purposes, good size TV, comfortable bed, and full kitchen if you plan on cooking.

I recommend giving the cozy cottage a try. If you're looking for something a little different than a standard trip staying in a hotel, you will not regret it.

The perfect cozy beach retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, baby and I stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend to get a break from our normal routine.

We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and cuteness of this cottage!

It was a perfect size and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to save money and eat at our weekend "home," including a stove, oven, microwave, full refridgerator, pots, pans and even plates and glassware!

There was a grocery store less than ten minutes away and it was only about a 15 minute drive to Clearwater Beach!

We went to watch the sunset almost every night and enjoyed being close to Clearwater without having to deal with loud noises and horrible traffic.

The neighborhood is beautiful and friendly and there are some nice nature spots and sitting areas that our family enjoyed venturing to.

One of my favorite parts of this experience was the shower head! It was hard not to shower forever - the water temperature stayed hot for a long time and the pressure and distribution of the water was perfect.

I highly recommend this lovely abode for anyone (single person or couple is best!) looking for some time away that's near the beach and free from the hustle and bustle of your average hotel (with a lot more amentities)!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time I have stayed at the Cozy Cottage Clearwater Florida. I will continue to return whenever I am visiting the area.

The location is convenient to shopping, beaches, parks & downtown areas of Tampa & Saint Petersburg as well as smaller communities like Dunedin Florida.

Tha cottage is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay & if anything is missing you only need to mention it to John or Sharon & it will be provided.

In addition, the location is quite so you can enjoy a peaceful get away.

Less than expected!

  • 2 of 5

Cozy Cottage looks “cozy”; but is in the middle of an urban residential neighborhood with an emergency vehicle route close by. Outdoor patio is actually the driveway of this two car converted garage, owners live in the house right next door, back yard is nice but had to watch for their greyhound before we went out. Owners were clearly upset when we complained about the mattress; but they did provide some foam blocking to put under it!
