It was a perfect place for a couple to spend a quiet week. Loved being within walking distance to the beach for the sunsets!

This was our 2nd year renting from Nick and Frances. We selected the cottage because it was close to our kids/grandkids, first of all, and secondly because it was in the "old Florida" area, which we love. The cottage was spotless, quiet, and easy to keep clean. We LOVED riding the bike trail which was just across the road. Almost every evening we'd walk a short block to Crystal Beach and watch one of many gorgeous sunsets. The cottage is close to several great restaurants where we quickly became regulars! Several nice beaches are not far away and great for fishing, walking, or just soaking up the sun. Definitely a good time was had by all, and we're going to be back!!

Nick and Frances are terrific landlords who went to great length to make sure everything I needed was available (even to bringing over a second bicycle). Frances has a real talent for decorating on a budget...the cottage, besides comfort,has character and charm.

The area feels like old Florida, which I loved. It's location is right up the street from a very dog-friendly park, where MANY people and their canine friends go to watch the sunset and socialize. There is a Pulbix right up the street and any other type of shopping close by. The Pinellas Trail is literally right across the street, and has just been resurfaced and lined in the area. Dunedin and Tarpon Spring are right up Alt 19 in either direction.

It has the feeling of being a quiet oasis (oasis yes, but not always quiet). There is a tremendous amount of foot and vehicle traffic, especially for the size of the road. Some people go alot faster than makes sense. For me it wasn't a problem. I got to speak with fun people and I was careful when walking in the area. But, I wanted to be honest, so future renters know what to expect.

I can't imagine anyone not really enjoying this rental and its owners. I would gladly have returned next winter had it been available.

We spent the month of February here in this adorable and charming cottage. It was complete with everything you could need while on vacation. All of my local friends who visited us here were completely impressed and everyone commented on how lucky I was to have found such a delightful place. You are a stroll to the beach and sunsets. The community is warm and friendly. Our landlords Nick and Frances made sure we were satisfied and were ready to provide us with whatever we needed.
