DEW DROP INN 5-MIN TO BEACH OR DOWNTOWN

Clearwater House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

You'll love the historic charm of this 2-story Foursquare Bungalow home!

Built in 1925, 'Dew Drop Inn' has architectural details found only in early Florida homes. Beautiful hardwood floors and custom decorating accent the living room with brick fireplace.

This home has been completely renovated with new kitchen and bathrooms.

The large kitchen has granite countertops and French doors lead to a large deck and the back yard.

There is one full bathroom with shower and custom tile downstairs, and three bedrooms and full bath are upstairs.

The master bedroom has a queen size Select Comfort bed with sitting area and vanity. The middle bedroom also has a queen size bed, and the front bedroom has two twin beds.

There is a front porch with seating area, and large deck in the back.

This is a family-friendly neighborhood with 'coastal urban' appeal. The location is very convenient to beaches, downtown, restaurants, shopping, and area attractions.

Public bus service and beach trolley are within walking distance.

Your hosts, Bruce and Melody, live on the same street (as do their daughter, son-in-law, and 3 lively grandchildren) and make sure that everything runs smoothly. They've been here over 10 years, and this is one of five renovation projects they've successfully completed in the neighborhood.

About Clearwater:

Clearwater and its island beaches are one of Florida's most popular vacation spots - featuring award winning beaches, warm tropical breezes, breathtaking sunsets, a temperate and mild climate and a safer, more affordable, quieter and calmer destination. Clearwater offers extensive water recreation and both nature-based and land-based attractions, a wide-variety of special events, a unique history and culture, and accommodations for everyone's style and budget.

Top Ranked Beaches

Clearwater Beach has been named the 'Best City Beach On The Gulf Of Mexico' by experts. Caladesi Island and Sand Key beaches have been named among the best natural beaches in the United States. Caladesi Island State Park is currently ranked #1 and previously placed second, primarily for its water quality, rustic charm, clean beaches, on-site amenities and its emphasis on wildlife. (website hidden) readers ranked Clearwater Beach in their Top 10 list of best beaches from Maine to Hawaii. Cond‚ Nast Traveler has also recognized Clearwater Beach as the best city beach on the Gulf of Mexico.

Sunsets at Pier 60

Every evening the place to be is Pier 60 in the heart of Clearwater Beach. For two hours before sunset and two hours after, artisans, street performers, musicians and more take over the activity center of Clearwater Beach.

Beach Walk is a winding beachside promenade with lush landscaping, artistic touches and clear views to Clearwater's award-winning beach and the water beyond, a place where bicyclists, rollerbladers and pedestrians all have safe and convenient access and where visitors and locals can socialize, dine, play games, or simply enjoy the spectacular sun and surf.

Nature

Unspoiled and protected, our beautiful and natural parks are refuges for birds, mammals and humans alike. Brooker Creek Preserve's 8,500 acres are home to more than 160 bird species, 20 amphibians, 50 reptiles and 40 mammals, many of them rare or listed as protected in Florida and/or the nation. Weedon Island Preserve's 1,500 island acres offers 9 miles of hiking trails, 4 miles of canoe and kayak trails, a fishing pier, observation platforms and an elevated boardwalk providing an intimate view of the flora and fauna of Florida.

The Gulf of Mexico and our rivers offer watchable wildlife. Approximately 2,600 manatees inhabit our springs, bays and canals, feeding on aquatic plants. Everyone's favorite, the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, can be seen cavorting with beauty and grace. Alligators can be found in some freshwater areas of the county. And over 300 species of fish swim in our waters

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
I loved this house for my family of 6. It has been very well renovated and was comfortable, clean, and charming. The location is a quick drive to the beach and is convenient to everything else. The three bedrooms were perfect and the beds were very comfortable. Both bathrooms were updated, well stocked, and functioned very well for us and the car port was a real plus as well as the outside water hose to spray off with. I still can't get over how much we liked our stay here because we are very particular. We booked last minute and Bruce was very accommodating. You can tell they care about their house and their guests. Very well done! I wish I could bring this home back to Ohio.

Thanks very much for your kind words! We're glad you enjoyed your stay here in Clearwater, and hope you find the time to return. Our cleaning crew remarked how well you left the home, as not all guests are as considerate as you.

Warmest Regards,

Holiday Treat

  • 5 of 5
We were having a family reunion in the Clearwater area and this was the perfect place for our family! It felt like home - complete with Christmas lights! The house had everything we needed and then some. You can tell the owners take excellent care of the house and yard. The backyard is a lovely collection of trees and gardens. We wish the weather had been better so we could enjoy the back porch more, but there were plenty of places inside to sit and gather family members that were staying in various places. Everyone loved the house and agreed we would do it again. Quiet neighborhood within an easy drive to downtown Clearwater, the beach, etc. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a great alternative to hotel living.

Sheran - month of February

  • 4 of 5
Property is as described in listing. Charmingly decorated and close to downtown Clearwater, Phillies spring training and several nearby towns that have weekly farmer's markets, festivals, etc. Less than t10 minutes to Clearwater beach and other Pineallas County beaches. Owners live nearby and were extremely helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the month here - and thanks for the grapefruit!
