The Space


HABLAMOS (website hidden) FALO UN POCO PORTUGES. :-)

Our cute, quiet, cozy chalet is in a residential neighborhood 1/2 mile from the water (the sound). Our place is great for everyone -- couples with kids or for friends. We have 2 beds, so can accommodate 4 people, but if you don't mind being a bit squeezed, you could put a 5th person on a mattress on the floor.

We have what you need for a comfortable, fun, relaxing stay: microwave, toaster oven, hot plate, mini fridge, pots, pans, utensils, dishes, silverware, dish towels, paper towels. Our chalet is next to our house, and has its own private entrance and parking in our driveway. There's a super comfortable queen bed in the main room, and a double bed in the loft. Linens, bath towels & beach towels are provided. TV has only a few channels since we don't have cable. TV enthusiasts be advised :-)

We are just 5 miles to Clearwater Beach (10 minutes without traffic), 8 miles to Honeymoon Island & Caledisi Island (voted in top 10 beaches in US), and 1.5 miles to downtown Dunedin, with its quaint boutiques, restaurants and marina. Tarpon Springs, "the sponge capital of the world," is a 20-minute drive north, with lots of Greek restaurants, shops, and of course, natural (website hidden). Petersburg and Tampa are each 30 minutes away. You can drive 1 minute to the water's edge and watch osprey and pelicans dive for their breakfast.

Bus stop is 1 block away. The area is great for cycling, and there are many bike rental places nearby, and also a place that sells refurbished bikes if you're here for a while.


WIFI INTERNET -- works about 95% of the time
TELEVISION with local channels
FREE PARKING in our driveway - you're never blocked in.
BUS STOP (bus #66) 1/2 block away, goes to downtown Clearwater. You then change buses to go to the beach.

SWIMMING POOL 10 MINUTES AWAY: Dunedin Pool at Highlander Park, $4 for kids and $6 for adults.

EASY CHECK-IN & OUT: I don't need to be here if you arrive early or late, so you can check yourself in and out (I'll hide the key for you).

✺ PLEASE NOTE: CLEANING FEE ✺ We charge a lower cleaning fee for shorter stays, and more for longer stays. Our fees are: $30 for stays up to 14 nights, $50 for anything longer. DUE IN CASH AT CHECK-IN. Thank you!

We look forward to helping you have a great stay in Clearwater!

  • The chalet is very nice, even nicer than the pictures. Good location between Dunedin and Clearwater. Worth the $

  • Vasooda and I stayed 3 days/3 nights at Anna's chalet this past month. It was an awesome time to be in Clearwater as the weather was absolutely perfect and the place we stayed in was very cosy and clean. Anna was a very nice and welcoming host who met us the night we arrived and gave us multiple tips and information that we needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Clearwater! :D

  • Anna is a great lady. The room was adorable. I would love to introduce Anna to my friends if they need to find a place to live in Tampa.

  • I have to say we (2 adults) enjoyed our short stay at the chalet - small but perfectly formed and definitely not a problem for a European, used to slightly smaller accommodation.

    Very close to Dunedin, a small town nearby with a good village feel about it. We ate there a couple of times. And drank - couple of craft breweries in town. The beaches are very close too at about 10 minutes drive away.

    Anna was very responsive and helpful. What more could you ask for?

    I would definitely recommend staying here. Enjoy!

  • The Cozy Chalet was perfect--clean, private, and cozy. It's location is ideal (about 30 mins from Tampa, 10 mins from the Clearwater Beach, 5 mins from beautiful Dunedin). Anna was a great host and made us feel right at home. We especially appreciated the little details--freshly ground coffee and our own private outdoor dining area to enjoy the cool Florida evenings.

    Highly recommend the Cozy Chalet to anybody staying in the greater Tampa area.

  • We spent a week at this little chalet and found it to be the perfect spot for exploring the area by bicycle. In 3/10 of a mile you connect to the Pinellas Trail which takes you North or South allowing you access to little communities along the way. It is a safe quiet area and if you don't feel like biking you can walk to nearby Dunedin and shop or take in a spring training baseball game. The room is small but has everything you need and an area outside for having lunch or just sitting out in the evening. Anna has provided a journal with suggestions for restaurants and activities in the area and guests are encouraged to add their ideas for future travelers. We liked knowing that Anna was right next door if we had a problem and she is such a personable host that you'll feel right at home.

  • Anna was a lovely host and we had a wonderful stay in her chalet. It was clean, quiet and well located. If you are visiting West Florida, definitely a place to consider.

  • Nice quiet neighbourhood, well worth the price - nicely decorated with porch, comfy bed and gorgeous bathroom. Anna was a wonderful host.

    February 2014
  • We had a great stay at this adorable spot. Anna was incredible accommodating and generously let us use one of her bicycles. The chalet is ideally located--it is close to a bike path and a is nice bike ride or walk to the water and downtown Dunedin.

I love meeting new people, and traveling to new places to learn about our big world. Favorite travel destinations: Bora Bora, Paris, Brittany (France), Tiradentes (Brazil), Florence, Italy. I lived in France, Italy, Vietnam and Brazil because I love learning about other places and cultures. Through these experiences, I have learned to speak fluent French, and am able to carry on simple conversation in Spanish and Portuguese. It is so fun renting this guest house because I get to meet people from all over the world. So far we've had people from Spain, Germany, England, Iran, and different places in the U.S. The chalet is open to all, regardless of nationality, race, sexual orientation, creed, or religion. We are all individuals, and that's what makes our world interesting! I love the outdoors, and my favorite thing about Florida is all the flora and fauna. I've never seen so many different animals in all my life! We have the largest concentration of bald eagles in all of the lower 48 states. Plus we have all types of birds, reptiles, etc. I love to read, watch movies, go biking, hiking (except there's not much hiking in Florida!), spend time with my family, hang out with friends, and take my dog to the park.
