About this listing
HELLO! BONJOUR! BUENOS DIAS! OLA!
NOUS PARLONS FRANCAIS.
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 couples with kids at least 8 years of age (or babies not yet crawling) 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. Sheets, bedspreads and bath towels are (website hidden) has only a few channels since we don't have (website hidden) 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.
*** PLEASE SEE OUR GUIDE FOR ALL THERE IS TO DO AROUND HERE! ***
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. (But I recommend renting a car, since you'll be limited by public transport here).
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: $35 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!
Interaction with Guests
I am available if you need me for anything -- questions about the neighborhood or area, help with the chalet, or even to chat over a cup of coffee if you want. Don't hesitate to text, email or call me.
I love how close we are to the beach (10-minute drive with no traffic), that Dunedin with its shops & cafes is only a 2-minute drive, and that we are only 5 blocks from the water, where you can walk or bike ride. We are also just 3 blocks from the Pinellas Trail, which is a paved trail extending the entire length of Pinellas County, which is used for walking, running, rollerblading and cycling.
The best way to get around is by car. You have your own parking spot here, which is free. The airport is about a 30-minute drive from the chalet. There are buses but the routes are limited.
NO PETS, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Please treat our guesthouse like you would your own home. Smoke only outside.
CLEANING FEE $35. DUE IN CASH AT CHECK-IN.
Make sure to close the gate when you enter and leave.
Please put all empty food containers in CLOSED bags before you put them in the trash.

What a hidden gem! Great place to stay, very tastefully decorated, the kids loved the loft and so quick to get to Clearwater Beach (although we went to Sand Key Park; 2mins further but $5 parking and much less crowded).
Anna was a very pleasant host and we look forward to staying in her chalet again.
Anna was a great host! We had so much fun in Clearwater this past week! Thanks so much Anna!
We loved it! It was very comfortable,
It was clean. Anna was very helpful in informing us of the best hotspots in Clearwater and always made sure that we were happy and comfortable.
thank you so much!
Cozy little chalet just like the description says. Anna was very accessible and friendly right from the start. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen very functional. A little grocery shopping nearby helped us make some pretty neat meals for the four of us. The beach was close and the neighborhood very safe. This was our first Airbnb stay and it definitely was a more immersive, cozy experience and now we're excited about our future airbnb stays!
The Cozy Chalet was awesome! Anna was great. She is very thoughtful and knows all of the best places to go. The chalet is close to everything. We rode our bikes to the bay every night to watch the sunset. We had such a great time and we can't wait to go back!
Nous sommes arrivées très tôt le matin et tout était prêt pour nous. Le chalet était propre et accueillant. C est un endroit paisible, chaleureux et calme. J ai beaucoup apprécié avoir mon intimité et mon autonomie, tout en sachant qu Anna était présente si nous avions un problème. Le chalet est à proximité de la plage (quelques minutes en voiture) mais aussi de magasins. Tout est facile d accès. Anna met aussi a la disposition de ses invités un ensemble de brochures, cartes, listes d activités, d attractions et de bons restaurants. Merci pour toutes ces recommandations!
I loved staying here! I felt like I was in cottage out of a Harry Potter movie! It's very close to clearwater beach and there's a 7-11 a couple blocks away. If you're a drinker theres a really cool brewery/bar close by called Dunedin and the honey ale is outta this world! If you're looking for a chill place to eat with a beach view I recommend Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar, very friendly staff and the food was very good. Anna was a awesome host and made sure I was taken care of, she and the people of Florida showed me nothing but good vibes. 5 stars!

About the Host, Anna
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 hosting on Airbnb because I get to meet people from all over the world. So far we've had people from Spain, Germany, England, Iran, Estonia, Canada and different places in the U.S. our Airbnb properties are 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 hope you can come enjoy all that Florida has to offer. It's well worth it. I am around if you have questions about the area. Feel free to call, text or email.
