Description of the Clearwater vacation home rental
A 650 sqft loft/mother-in-law suite on the second floor of a beautiful 3980sqft house, located in beautiful Clearwater FL. Located at 15miles from Tampa Int'l Airport, 15miles from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida (Clearwater beach) and walking distance from beautiful Safety Harbor. This room is upstairs and has its own airconditioning, a beautiful big bathroom with jacuzzi, a toilet with bidet, a big walk-in closet, a small fridge for sodas, a king size bed and a pull out sofa, a sitting area, tv, dvd. If you are visiting with more than 4 guests, there is plenty of room to add an additional pull out sofa, which we will provide with pleasure. So families with 4 kids are able to stay all in the same room, if desired. However, there is an extra $15/night charge per extra guest for 4+ guests.
During your stay, you will have your own privacy upstairs. The remaining of the house is all on the first floor. You may use the kitchen for cooking, as long as you clean up after yourself. Their is a nice pool with hot jacuzzi, feel free to jump in any time. Their are nice tanning beds to work on your tan and a hammock. Enjoy the beautiful weather in Florida.
The neighborhood is nice and peaceful. The location is excellent. It is only 15 miles from Tampa International Airport and usually there is no traffic. It takes about 22min driving accross the bridge from Tampa to our house.
There is a public busstop right in front of our house, but I can't give you any advise on the use of the bus system. If you rent a car, there is a parking spot on our driveway.
Sorry, no pets, unless small dogs that are happy to sleep in a crate at night. I have 2 beagles and a very old cat. My dogs sleep in a crate in the office room. During the day, my beagles roam around the first floor area of the house. They have a doggy door to go in and out the house as they please. They use the fenced backyard to do their business. If your small dog is friendly and can live with these rules, your dog is more than welcome. There will be a $25 non-refundable pet fee for each pet.
There is a $45 cleaning fee to prepare the room for the next guest. This fee is due upon booking.

Perfect Match!

Perfect experience with both location and comfort level of property amenities. Ellen was understanding of our needs and available when needed. Privacy was not an issue, the home and the family are very inviting. We plan on always staying at this property if its available.

Great Place to stay!

The Mother N Law Suite was a fantastic room with all the Amenities!! The bed was very very comfortable, nice size flat screen TV with DVD Player & a huge asst of movies for Adults & Children. The Owners of this Beautiful home couldn't of been more helpful & kind. They went out of there way to make your visit a nice stay w/o any stresses & were very informative on places to go in Clearwater & Safety Harbor, Fl.!! They never come upstairs to bother you in anyway unless you call them! I had a great stay there and would recommend it to anyone. I esp. enjoyed the Jacuzzi in the bathroom. Very comforting to my tired & aching muscles from my Fibromyalgia and Osteoathritis, so just really loved that! GREAT PLACE TO STAY and close to everything!! Thanks so much..,

Owner's reply:

Beautiful and Helpful Personable Experience

We will highly recommend this personable guest experience to any family of four, or less, or any respectful couple. Mrs. Ellen and her family opened up there home in our desparate time of need. Not really wanting to stay in a hotel while we searched the area for a place to live, Mrs. Ellen not only offered her lovely home to us, but she recommended certain areas and schools that we needed to know about to help us with our relocation. Regretfully, we were unable to enjoy their sparkling pool or outdoor heated spa due to the fact we were searching for our new home from dawn to dusk. The room accommodations were top notch and so comfortable especially after being in the car all day. The space, walk in shower, and jacuzzi tub added the icing on the cake. If you are looking for the nicest alternative from a hotel for a more than reasonable price, then this mother in law suite is your choice for an unforgettable and personable experience. We want to go back and hire them to take us out on their boat excursions! Please always treat this family...our Earth angels...right and respectfully, for this is their home and not a hotel.

Ellen Nelissen

Owner's reply:

Thank you for being very respectful and wonderful guests. We loved having you and we are so happy we were able to help out with your search of a home. I am so glad I was able to be the help I wished I would have had when we moved here. Hope you find a safe and wonderful home to move to.
Please send any friends or family in need of a wonderful vacation rental in the Clearwater area our way. We will welcome them. Glad you had a nice experience at our house as so did we having you as guests.

As close as staying at home away from home

We stayed for a week and they made our stay awesome. Our teenagers niece and nephew, my wife and I enjoyed our stay very much with Ellen, Hugo and their summer busy daughters. We had a very late arrival and Ellen was very pleasant greeting us at the door. The room is very clean with VERY comfortable beds, 3 of them in our case. 1 king, 1 queen and a single; all of them with clean linens, pillows and covers. The A/C unit was quiet and made the room very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and towels/basic toiletries were provided. Ellen has trained her dogs very well, they never go into your room, jump all over you, lick you to death or bother you in any way. We are dog people and enjoyed their subtle begging for attention, they come a few feet away and drop on their sides asking for a belly rub. I am mildly allergic to cats and as clean as they keep their house it was not even an issue, allergies never bothered me. We regret not having had time to use their kitchen, grill or even the pool as we were very busy during our stay doing all kinds of activities, however their house was always very neat, clean, and inviting. In a more relaxing vacation you can see how their patio/pool area would be the perfect hang out. One of the room's window oversees the pool area, the other faces the street with beautiful landscapes. Heavy curtains are installed for late morning starts. The pictures she has online depict the house's current conditions, the pool is always clean and ready for you to jump in. The house is simply beautiful and CLEAN! The room has a flat screen and what appeared to be hundreds of movies are available for borrowing. Whenever we asked for suggestions (which was all the time! :-) ), their suggestions were awesome. We will never forget the places we discovered thanks to them. Two of their restaurant suggestions stand out like a must visit again when in town are Lenny's for Breakfast and Palm Pavilion in Clearwater Beach at sunset. We also took advantage of the boat ride they offer and enjoyed lunch in a local's island where there was no one else in sight and got to see some beautiful views of the golf. The beach is not far at all and the drive on Gulf to Bay Blvd is a pleasure. Should you choose to stay at home during your stay there's a comfortable spot for you indoors and outdoors at Ellen's home. La Sra. Ellen tambien habla español y hace de su casa, tu casa. Thanks Ellen, Hugo & Family for making us feel at home.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your beautiful review. We want you to know that we really enjoyed your company as well. We appreciated your kindness and respect. We would love to have you come visit again. Please know that from now on, you have a family and a house in Clearwater that welcomes you anytime!!!

More than a vaca place 2 stay!

Our stay was from June 29-July 6, 2013. These accommodations were made available to us by loving friends & family via "Bethany's Hope" to grant our sick daughter her dream of meeting Winter the dolphin with the prosthetic tail who resides at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. We had no idea what to expect from this breathtaking Mother-in-Law suite, and were pleasantly surprised as we were welcomed more as an extended part of the family than as guests. The room was comfortable & simply stunning~ (you will find no better deal for your $$$). Having hosts that are more friendly and assistive than required is an added bonus that you will absolutely not find anywhere else! So thankful that our stay with them added to the sweet memories we will forever cherish...

Ellen Nelissen

Owner's reply:

We are so happy we got to meet this wonderful family. We will cherish the memories for life. We feel so happy our family was part of the Baker's journey and "Winter" the dolphin adventure. We would love to see them visit again, when "Hope" the second movie comes out. I am sure Bethaney will enjoy that one as well and we hope they come stay at our house when they do visit.
Thanks for the awesome have a home and a family in Clearwater that will welcome you with open arms anytime.

Perfect rental

The owners welcomed us into their home...they were very friendly, helpful, and informative during our stay. The bus to Tampa was close, so I could commute to work easily. We enjoyed the accomodations...perfect for our needs. The unit was clean, modern, and nicely decorated. The owners made us feel at home, and we enjoyed talking with them. There was a jacuzzi and swimming pool we could use. It offered all the amenities of a motel, with more privacy. WIFI was available at no charge. We stayed for three weeks in the unit, and would definitely consider renting this unit again...for a longer period of time!

Ellen Nelissen

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a true pleasure having you in our home. We welcome you both with open arms any time you would like to come "home". Our house is your house and home, so please come back soon.
Ellen and the whole family

Mother -in- Law Suite!!

It was great. Could not have asked for a better setup. Huge bedroom and bathroom. Awesome kitchen to use and beautiful places to eat on the back patio. Very close to everything, a Publix about a mile away and Clearwater Beach is just a short drive. My wife and I will def be keeping in touch whenever we are in Florida again.

Ellen Nelissen

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for your kind words about our hosting and our house. We loved having you both as guests and hope you will come see us again. Thanks for respecting our room and house and leaving everything so clean behind. It was a great pleasure and experience for myself and my family. Please know that you have a home in Florida that will always welcome you back. Ellen, Hugo, kids, dogs, cat and bunnies 😜
