We call this the owners suite. It's beautiful ! . With 2 bedrooms and trundle beds on the sleeping porch it can accommodate up to 8. Sometimes we get two families with the kids sharing the porch. Walk out on the private deck and you are right on the beach with the Bar-BQ and large gazebo and teakwood rocking chairs. Cook in the large kitchen outfitted with the finest pots and pans, blender for daiquiris and margaritas, and extra large refrigerator and pantry for extended stays. Large master bedroom with king size bed overlooking the Gulf, rattan furniture for that Florida look, big TV and large oak pedestal dining table seats 6 with extra kids eating on the porch. The sleeping porch overlooking the beach doubles as breakfast area for those who get up early to go beach combing for shells. M...We call this the owners suite. It's beautiful ! .

Guests compliment us on the warm glow of antique 100 year old red heart pine floors that have weathered many a hurricane in 79 years. The brick fireplace in the living room adds a touch of nostalgia.

About the neighborhood
Enjoy old Florida. Old Timers call this part of the island 'The Narrows' where the sand is just wide enough for a single row of homes. Historically, the most beautiful spot on the tropical barrier islands of Tampa Bay between Clearwater and St Pete. The large Beach home and private cottage have been converted into Gulf front suites featuring full kitchens, pillow top beds, and fantastic views. We make it easy for you to relax with free on site parking, wi fi, folding beach chairs ,umbrella, beach toys, floats, beach towels....and so much more. Clearwater and its island beaches are fortunate to offer something for everybody. Our attractions include arts and museums, the natural environment, historical buildings, special events and more traditional 'attractions' such as theme parks, whatever your preference we have it here.
Getting around
We do recommend a car, however the Clearwater Jolly Trolley makes stops from Clearwater to St Petersburg and you may ride it for a minimal fee (daily and weekly passes) There are also rentals for biking (Pinellas Trail), boating, and scooters.
