Captain Al and Rodney were great in helping us get settled. Stayed in the corner cabin. Really cute, Small sitting area, kitchen with a full fridge, separate bedroom and a bathroom. Great location, view of the beach, walking distance from bar and food. Will stay there again!

If you are booked in the cottages, you are within feet of the beach. The lemon cottage was comfortable for me and my husband-he's tall and I am big. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The cottage was very clean, and nicely decorated. The kitchen with the pots, pans, and utensils we needed. Along with dish soap, hand soap, salt &...

The owner Captain Al was great! He offers boat rides to the guests. Very attentive and friendly staff. The cottages have a lot of charm. Nicely decorated and clean. Just a very short walk to beach and right on the main strip so you can walk to everything. Planning next years trip with another family!

We stayed in the Tommy Bahama for three nights with 5 people. It worked for three adults and two kids. The cottage is Florida style with character. We loved the front and back porches! The kitchen is big and we had some delicious meals at the large dining room table. Not fancy but really low key and much better value...

We stayed (currently still here :) at New Orleans Beach Apt. It's far from the Hilton and that's completely ok with us.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clearwater Cottages is a group of 1925 Beach Cottages and mid-century buildings , all beachside of Mandalay Ave, no streets to cross, just 5 blocks walk to Pier 60. This group vacation rental offers one, two and three bedroom units that can sleep up to 10 guests or rent several for big family reunions. All remodeled in 2015 with Granite Countertops, Stainless Steel appliances, white beachy furniture, and remodeled baths. Families have enjoyed these cute cottages since the 1920's. This Unique Gulf Coast getaway feels more like beach camping , making new friends in the shared Key West Style Tropical backyard with wood party deck and tin roof gazebo. Save a ton by cooking in your designer kitchen or Weber BBQ grill. The beach is so close you step outside and can see it from most cottages. Perfect for laid back, family friendly, beach lovers and and guests who want to share the Salt Life for a few days. Capt Al, the property manager, and Cottage Counselors always around to show you how to have the best beach vacation ever. These cottages are all listed on Tripadvisor with seperate photos and descriptions. ... more   less
