Truly a gem!!
What a wonderful home away from home situated on a pristine white sand beach just steps from the Gulf waters – without a doubt this “postage stamp of heaven” is one of a kind! Our family loves this pristine, well equipped (including everything for the beach - umbrellas, chairs, towels, and even beach toys for little ones), adorable, and comfortable cottage. Location is ideal with Clearwater and Saint Pete’s just down the road and Tampa only 35 mins away! The lovely deck is perfect for sunset dinners and there are plenty of fun restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. Sue and Tim are terrific landlords – we arrived for a Christmas stay and Sue had the place beautifully decorated – they think of everything! Lucky for us our son just moved to the area for work, so we look forward to many more delightful stays!

Tara it was delightful to have you stay through the holidays! So glad you enjoyed our 'postage stamp of heaven'! See you again soon!
Best cottage on the beach!
We have been coming to this little piece of heaven for 13 years and we love it. The cottage is a special gem and a rare find. We feel blessed to have found it. Tim and Sue are wonderful landlords. They are very accommodating and quick to react to any issues ( which in 13 years have been very few!) The cottage is spotlessly clean and very well cared for. Every year when we come there are new updates and decor. We love sitting on the deck and looking at the gulf and we can walk off the deck onto sand and the beach. The sunsets are beautiful (never two the same) and you can watch them from the deck while sipping a glass of wine. People who walk by on the way to the beach often comment that we have the best place on the beach and we agree! There are great restaurants nearby and close to several golf courses. Largo golf course is our favourite. I am writing this review sitting on the deck with a beer looking at the gulf and I feel so content and fortunate to be here. Thank you Tim and Sue for sharing your little piece of heaven
