The Owner purchased this house in 2006
We love the location, the weather (no matter what time of year), the activities and the beach is the best in the world.
There is no better place on the beach. Steps to the white sands of the calm quiet North Clearwater Beach and a short Trolley ride to the activities of Clearwater Beach and Pier 60. There are plenty of restaurants and family places to eat, as well as great places to enjoy the beach life.
The home was beautiful. The pictures really do not do it justice. There was plenty to do each day. The pool was perfect for our family. It was the perfect way to start and end the day. We would make the short walk to the beach each day and the beach was amazing. It was not crowded at all! We were able to swim pretty much by ourselves. We even had dolphins, stingrays and a manatee swim pretty close to us. The refrigerator stopped working, but the owner was quick to respond and it was great to have the 2nd fridge, so we weren't inconvenienced.
Pier 60 was a little hectic, but we learned our way around pretty quickly. The owner's helpful hints that he emails prior to your stay were very useful. It would be great if there was a notebook left at the home that guests could write different restaurants they have eaten at or other markets they visited. We found a great Seafood Market called Ward's Seafood.
We would absolutely stay at this home again!
Our family vacations every year and this beautiful house was our best yet! It had everything we needed and any questions we had were answered VERY quickly. Beautiful house and wonderful memories were made here. Thank you to the owners for such a great place. We LOVED it!
We used this beautiful home for a family reunion - it was fantastic for 8 adults and 6 children! We all slept comfortably and were able to cook all our meals in the spacious kitchen with plenty of seating. The large gas grill was a nice feature! We did order pizza from Angelos the night before we left and it was delicious! The swimming pool was an added plus! It was clean when we arrived and mid week the pool guy came again to maintain! The garage is full of beach items (shade tent was great) and it was easy to put everything in/on a cart and walk a short distance to a beautiful uncrowded beach! The downtown area was very easy to get to and we enjoyed the pier/vendors/shops and the entertainment. There is a trolly, but it was only a five minute drive by car! Laundry facilities very handy. Nice Publix market not too far either! It was a pleasure to work with the owner and I received my full deposit back in a timely manner! Everyone enjoyed the vacation and we are already taking about going back and using the same house!
We stayed here and all the other reviews are correct !!! The house was even more stunning than the pictures show. It was very clean and tons of space for us to spread out and relax. The owner, Bob was very easy to work with. We would highly recommend this home and are so thrilled to have stayed there.
We were completely blown away with the home for our recent stay in Clearwater. The owner, Bob, was wonderful to work with and was always very prompt in returning emails/questions. The house was even better than described and pictured. It is simply a beautiful home. The house is perfectly arranged for more than one family visiting. We had three families and the space was perfect for everyone to have their own privacy. Everything you need is already in the house. The kitchen fridge broke but Bob informed us in plenty of time and there is a 2nd fridge in the garage so it was not an issue at all. The walk to the beach is less than 5 minutes and it's a beautiful, non-crowded area of the beach. The house is located less than a 10 minute walk ( or ride) to the downtown area. The pool area is in a courtyard, which is perfect for privacy. We HIGHLY recommend this house for vacation and will 100% stay again if the opportunity brings us back to Clearwater in the future!
Writing a review for this property would be like retyping everyone else's review! Ok, so I will....this place is one of a kind, has everything you need, is private, in a quiet neighborhood, 2 minutes to the non-crowded beach, spacious, amazing pool, close to shopping and restaurants, perfect, very nice and helpful owner, and most importantly....relaxing! The thing I liked the most was to be able to vacation with a couple of my siblings and their families and be spread out enough (because the house is spacious) to not feel overwhelmed (if you know what I mean). Plus, we put my 21 yr old daughter and her friend in the 2nd master bedroom, which is unattached to the main house, and again, mom gets a break and doesn't feel overwhelmed. The only one recommendation that I have is a curtain on the master bathroom window. We would definitely stay here again and again. Awesome.
