When we purchased our condo, we wanted a place that was functional, clean and above all a great location! We named her 'Beachy Keen' and we have been well pleased. We decided to share our experience with other guests so they could create great memories as well!

PERFECT CLEARWATER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Beachy Keen was exactly what we wanted out of a Clearwater Beach rental. The beach is literally a block away and we did not have to rent a car to get around. Everything is accessible by foot or trolley. As a group of 2 couples, it was difficult to find a condo rental with two large beds and Beachy Keen was one of the few locations that fit the bill. The rooms are spacious and clean, the kitchen has all you need for breakfast cooking, and the "porch" is great for a relaxing nap. Be sure to check out the bars in the area and sign up for any tours at the marina! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone else interested!

The listing on this understates how awesome this place really is. The layout is great for 4-5 people, especially if you have kids and need privacy for the adults. The kitchen is full of cooking supplies, the rooms are stocked with extra sheets and blankets, and the bathroom has plenty of towels. The living room is rather large and, some of the pictures are outdated so things (like the TV) have been updated/upgraded. The beach is one block (5 minute walk) away. Don't let this deter you, I was afraid that I would get annoyed with walking to the beach instead of being "beachfront", but it is super close and the walk was zero issue.

This place isn't the Sandpearl, and Mike (owner) will tell you that flat out. This place offers so much more bang for your buck than the Sandpearl could ever hope to achieve. We were part of a wedding party, and most of the others stayed at the SandPearl. They payed $300+ per night for their rooms, and STILL had to buy their chairs/umbrellas!

Mike has very good customer service, and returned my phone calls/emails within a few hours. He even went as far as to provide me with the number for an airport shuttle (all I had to do was tell the driver "I'm staying at Mike's"). Having good customer service is the most important thing in an industry where most hotels/condos are indifferent to whether you are having fun.

Pro-Tip: Don't rent a car. Don't waste $200 or more on this as it will most likely sit parked at the condo the entire time. Public transportation is awesome down there. The fee from Clearwater Intl. Airport was $35 one way, then after that we walked everywhere we needed to go. Restaurants, the beach, shopping, everything is within a 10 minute walk from this condo. If you have/want to go a bit further, you can call up FreeRide and they will take you anywhere on North or South beach clearwater for "free", tips appreciated.

Be sure to check out Cooters. We never made it to Frenchys, but maybe next time. I'd definitely stay here again.

As to one of the other comments that complained about the view from the porch:

The "parking lot" they are complaining about is literally 4 parking spaces that are there for the condo owners/renters. There is a road behind it with some cool looking houses. This isn't a beach front property, and no where does it pretend to be. This is in a quiet part of the strip, it was actually too quiet for me to sleep and I had to turn a fan on in order for there to be some noise.

SIMPLE AND SWEET!

  • 4 of 5
The Beachy Keen condo was a great place to stay for my family of 5. We were looking for an affordable place near the beach and that's what we got! The condo was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed for a week at the beach. I was very concerned about the distance to the beach because I have three young kids with A LOT of stuff to carry, but it literally took less than 5 minutes to walk across the street to the beach and toting our beach gear wasn't a problem at all! My kids enjoyed the park across the street, and we would have loved to swim in the pool (one black over), but it was closed the day we went - shortened hours for this time of the year, I guess. The condo is in a great location and within walking distance to many restaurants and the downtown Clearwater Beach area. Mike was a huge help and prompt in answering the many questions I had about the condo and Clearwater Beach - it was our first time there. We would definitely go back! I also appreciated that Mike allowed us to rent for 5 nights instead of the usual 7 night stay. As Mike described to me "this isn't the Hilton", but it was a nice, affordable place to stay in Clearwater Beach and it suited our needs perfectly!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We loved our long weekend getaway at Beachy Keen, and Mike was so helpful and accommodating. Clearwater Beach was a great place to take our family with young kids, and the condo was so convenient to the beach, restaurants and shops. Other than the grocery store and a visit to the aquarium on a rainy morning, we didn't use our car at all. Would definitely stay here again!

Thanks for the review! We are giving the kitchen a face lift and re-painting the Condo with some Carribean style colors for an Island feel. I will keep you posted.

VERY NICE AND GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
The condo was clean, nicely decorated and cute. It was in a great location near a park and ALL the shopping places are in walking distance from it, but it was set back far enough to seem private. The public beach was close too! Mike was GREAT to work with and very helpful with recommendations on where to eat, what to see and how to find things we were looking for, his assistance was GREATLY appreciated! It was quiet there, no loud or rowdy neighbors, so it's perfect for a family get away. I would love to recommend Beachy Keen to anyone visiting Clearwater Beach. :)

GREAT STAY AT CLEARWATER BEACH

  • 5 of 5
All we wanted was a clean apartment with 2 bedrooms and a/c, within close proximity to clearwater beach, we got that and a lot more with this property! Im glad we went for this apartment, the owner Mike was quick to answer any queries I had and this put my mind at rest. Being from the UK I was more than apprehensive but everything turned out just fine. The unit is much nicer on the inside , and the photos don’t do it justice. Its not luxurious but if that’s what you are after stay at the SandPearl and pay much much more for just one room!!! The beds were very comfortable, I am fussy and I found them comfortable, the bed sheets were very soft as well. The porch was a great area to dry off wet swim suits. There is a laundry room on site which was very useful. The kitchen was more than adequate for our needs (a bit of lunch cooking and breakfast), the pots were fine and the owner’s friend popped round with a non-stick frying pan which was appreciated (could do with a non-metallic spatula to go with it now!) . The AC was noisy but we didn’t mind, it was very effective. It was great to be somewhere with a bit of space especially after being in a hotel room at Disney. Note to future renters: after you put in the code for the front door, twist the knob hard to the right, its a little stiff but it does open!! The location of the apartment was ideal, literally a few minutes’ walk in a straight line to the beach!! Not too far to be carrying the chairs, beach umbrella, boogie board/woggles and sand toys all provided in the apartment. There are some grocery shops within 2 mins of the apartment and all amenities are within walking distance. Kiku Japanese restaurant was our favourite. I was very satisfied with the whole experience and wouldn’t hesitate to go back there again.
