The kitchen is equipped with a 2-burner induction cook-top, a microwave, a toaster oven, a fridge with ice-maker and a Kuerig-pod coffee pot. Also included are dishes, pots and pans, flatware, etc. The one large bedroom includes a queen bed and a dresser. Off the bedroom you will find a full-sized, front loading, stacked washer and dryer. There is also an additional BEDroom, literally, off the laundry area. The bed is a full-sized, wall-to-wall from head-to-toe. There are french doors leading from the main bedroom to a small and very private fenced backyard area with a deck, grill, and luxurious hot tub. Behind the kitchen is the bathroom with a separate shower room. There is wireless Internet included. There is a smoke detector and a fire extinguisher. Pelican Cottage is a small, cute and cozy cottage built behind and attached to our garage. It is part of a residential property in a residential neighborhood. You share the driveway parking with us. Our backyard is on the other side of the fence. It is private and quiet and most times you will not even see us. However, it is our home and occasionally, you may find us working in the yard or mowing grass or fixing the brakes on the car. We are not a commercial conglomerate. We offer Pelican Cottage as a comfortable, homey alternative to the sterile and limited facilities of hotels or motel rooms. There are county-wide buses as well as the Jolly Trolley that runs from Tarpon Springs to Clearwater Beach. We have schedules available for your consideration. We suggest bringing or renting a vehicle to make the most of this beautiful area. Tarpon Springs is very bicycle friendly-we are at the beginning of the 50-mile+ Pinellas Trail. Pelican Cottage offers 2, 1 speed, coast brake bicycles. Guest Access Driveway parking for two cars (one behind another.) Street parking for more. A private walkway leading to Pelican Cottage. Private, small fenced backyard with deck. Interaction with Guests We are available for anything our guests may need, but both Jerry and Kerrie respect their guests' holiday time as their own. The Neighborhood Our street is a residential street with 13 homes. It is a very quiet neighborhood. It's a couple of blocks to Spring Bayou. A five-minute walk will get you to downtown Tarpon Springs and all of their antique shops and restaurants or the Sponge Docks. An 8-minute drive will get you to Howard Park and Sunset Beach. Clearwater beaches are 1/2 hour away. Saint Petersburg is an hour and Tampa about 1/2 hour. If casinos are your thing, the Hard Rock Casino is a little over an hour away. Orlando and all of its theme parks are a short 1 1/2 hour drive. Tarpon Springs itself is full of things to do. Great restaurants, neat shops, and all of the necessities. We have all the information about what's around for your perusal in Pelican Cottage.

We are also listed on Airbnb and Home Away - check out both sites for more reviews. We have 3 dogs, Lily, a 10-year old basset hound, a 5-year old Yellow Lab named Brinkley and an 8-year old Spaniel-esque dog of unknown origin named Bella. They are very friendly, and have no access to the cottage. You may be greeted when you arrive (if they aren't sleeping) but they will definitely stay on their side of the fence.

Guests are expected to maintain the property better than their own home. We provide sheets, blankets, and both bath and beach towels. Guests are responsible for laundering linens during their stay.

Thank you so very much for your kind words! If I were ever asked to describe the perfect guests for Pelican Cottage I would only need to say "Janine and Daniel." They arrived as strangers and left as friends. <B

Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable. Friendly owners. Very private and quiet. Nice little deck and back yard for the dog. Walking distance to Spring Bayou where the manatees spend the winter. Also walking distance to the sponge docks and lots of Greek dining.

This guest was quiet, friendly and private and left Pelican Cottage in a clean and orderly fashion. This was our first guest with a dog and any concerns we had were alleviated immediately as Riley too, was a perfect guest.
