We expected a lot, and we got much more!
From initial contact with Mr. Bawell, through to receiving our deposit after we were home again, renting this house was an effortless , highly enjoyable experience. My father lives in Clearwater so we travel there every year to visit. I'm very familiar with the area, and for my taste Caladesi House is perfectly situated in a residential neighborhood, that's not far from restaurants, shopping ect. The beach is 181 steps, (my kids counted) from the front door to a beautiful, uncrowded, unspoiled beach. It's a luxury to not have to drive to the beach and deal with traffic, parking and all the rest. You just take your things from the house and walk a couple of minutes. My wife an I took early morning walks on the beach that we will never forget. Just a few people out jogging, or looking for shells. We saw dolphins 30 meters off shore, saw numerous bird species, sea turtles, swam in the bath temperature sea and just soaked in the beautiful environment. Wonderful way to start the day!The house itself is modern, has everything you need, is clean and has a great feel to it. It feels warm like a home, not a rental. We love to cook, and with so much fresh seafood, fruit and vegetables in Florida, it was great to have a well equipped kitchen. The pool area is wonderful. A perfect place to grill and eat your food when it cools off a little in the early evenings. If you have kids they'll love the pool. If you don't have kids, it's a very romantic, relaxing place to spend time. The house was a very central part of our vacation, and family reunion, so we were there a lot. I'm hard pressed to think of anything negative about the house, it's location, or dealings with Mr. Bawell. Caladesi House was a large contributing factor to a vacation & family reunion our whole family will never forget. I highly recommend it.
