About Nancy Stewart
Hello! We are Norman and Nancy Stewart, owners of this condo in the gorgeous Harborview Grande. Our home is in Tampa. Norman was a university president for a number of years. He now runs his own higher education consulting firm which takes him all over the world. Nancy was a university professor of education and now writes children’s books full time. Nancy's Bella and Britt Series takes place along the beach. Three of these books have been on Amazon's Bestseller List (one for 18 weeks) and have won Children's Classics Seal of Approval Awards. Her new biography, Katrina and Winter: Partners in Courage, also has been on Amazon's Bestseller List, and features Katrina Simpkins with Winter, the dolphin who lives at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. This book won the Children's Classics Silver Award, 2013. Nancy's new book, Bella Saves the Beach, is now available and has won the Literary Classics Seal of Approval. Nancy loves getting inspiration walking on the sugar sand beach and writing on the balcony. In fact, the inspiration for these books came directly from early morning walks on the beautiful sand of Clearwater Beach! It is our hope that you find the comfort, happiness and serenity that we do in this beautiful place called Clearwater Beach.

Why Nancy Stewart chose Clearwater Beach
Having lived in London for ten years and the NYC area as well, location is extremely important to us. We wanted to be near a large metro area with all the amenities such a place can provide, and Tampa Bay is that place. We also wanted to be right on the water, and our balcony and Clearwater Beach itself is perfect! The area, as a total, is a complete winner.
What makes this condo unique
The Harborview Grande is in the middle of everything on the beach, including terrific restaurants, shopping and Pier 60. The views of the gulf and bay are wonderful from our condo. The beach community is amazingly kid-friendly — and friendly to everyone. The Tampa Bay area provides the best of everything, including theater, dining, music , shopping, sports, to mention just a few. The entire area is splendid in general, and Clearwater Beach with all its amenities is fantastic in particular.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. It is even better than the pictures (and they are terrific)! You have thought about absolutely everything to make a stress free vacation. A wonderful environment to relax. The dolphins from the balcony were a bonus. We would recommend this condo to anyone visiting Clearwater Beach. Thank you again.
