This is the last few streets left in Clearwater Beach, beachside with cottage rentals and older restored vacation homes The best TIKI Bars are out your back door and 2 -3 blocks you will find Palm Pavillion and Frenchy's Rockaway. The famous Shipwreck Bar is one block stumble. Yet this is the quiet part of the island.

Originally from New Jersey, I have enjoyed my youth at the Jersey Shore. Now I am fortunate to live the dream in Clearwater Beach. I enjoy taking my guests out on my boat and showing them how to enjoy the Salt Life. Living at the beach, I enjoy swimming in warm water all summer, enjoy socializing with my congenial like minded neighbors, and enjoy the fresh food and beach style ambiance at the resturants on this wonderful island. In the past, I have been l a licensed Doctor more than 40 years, now retired, and in my second career. During my younger years I have traveled all around the world dozens of time, enjoying scuba diving from Caymans to Bali, dozens of jungle trecks in South America and through Costa RIca. Appreciate the art and history, I have been to most European Countries. After so much travel , I have found the best of everything is right here in my own backyard. I have managed Clearwater Cottages for more than 10 years, and enjoy showing my guests how to enjoy the Salt Life. I enjoy meeting guests from all around our great country and all around the world. Karen, my first mate is from San Francisco and heads the house keeping team. We both enjoy showing our guests how to enjoy the Salt Life
