Clearwater Beach Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

For 2 people only!


A studio/efficiency just a 20 seconds walk to the beach.

Very nicely appointed and a super great courtyard to relax/chill and grill. This cozy studio is perfect for couples who enjoy romantic settings. It's a great get-a-way for weekly stays or long weekends. Close to great restaurants, pubs, beachside grills, shopping and beach activities, all just a short walk away. You can work on your suntan and yet be close enough to enjoy the comforts of your vacation studio. Getting drinks and snacks are no problem when your that close to the beach.

Beachside Courtyard Romantic Retreat at Clearwater Beach

Not the studio we rented, but apparently upgraded to larger quarters!

  • 5 of 5

The unit in the photo online was not the one we were given, we were surprised to learn on arrival...we were upgraded to a one bedroom cottage with a living room, kitchen, bathroom, very nice and much more roomy than we expected to have. We had everything we needed, and used the laundry to bleach the towels, which had orangy/reddish spots we were a little leary of, but even after bleaching they remained, so we were ok with that...The cottage was clean, except for the window in the shower, so we left the blinds open on parting, so the maid would see it. The bed was comfortable and clean...if you like the thick and firm pillows, you'll be fine, or you should bring your favorite pillow if you prefer soft...I bought a new one.

Oh, there was a courtyard to navigate to get to the cottage behind the others, and it was not lit at night...when we arrived at about 11pm, we had to unload the car and make our way in the dark to our entrance in the back. I suggest better lighting in that courtyard. Now, remember I am not reviewing the unit pictured and described here..I can't find the actual unit we had...but my daughter and I did enjoy our stay...Thanks for the upgrade! We spend our days exploring nature preserves, weather permitting...We went to Fort DeSoto, Boyd Hill, Walsingham, Boca Ciago, Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island. We still had time to take in a movie and do a little shopping on a rainy day..One day after hours of birding, we returned to the beach, tired and thirsty, we ducked into a "dive" for a drink, and had a great salad with seasoned shrimp that was delicious...So if you want a good meal close to the pier and beach, look for the Beach Fyre Grill...friendly service, and big screen (we watched part of a bowl game and chatted with a local) was a very nice experience. We had a great trip, overall...

This rental is in a great location - literally steps from the beach. It is on the northern part of the beach, away from all the resorts. We were able to walk to Caledesi Island park, the main part of town with all the restaurants and Pier 60 for the sunset celebration. There is free laundry across the street. The rental is clean and has everything you might need. Valerie was very easy to get in touch with for any questions. We really enjoyed our stay - thank you!

Clean, cute and steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a quick 3 days to attend a friends wedding in Tampa. Very nice cottage, not much of a beach view as you are tucked away behind other cottages, but steps away from the sand! Everything is in mint condition, very well maintained property. 10 minute walk to Pier 60, highly recommended! Many things were provided with the unit that you would not expect to see, as I am a repeat user of Angel was very accomodating, and gave us good tips on what to do and see. Loved everything about Clearwater Beach, only complaint is that the bathroom is a little small with some tight spaces, but has everything you need.

Paradise on the beach

  • 5 of 5

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!! This is the most wonderful little cottage that is literally a 30 second walk to the beach. The house is the 3rd from the beach and you can see the beach from the front house. We had no idea what to expect but were so pleasantly surprised with this rental. Angel was absolutely wonderful and was so good to give us all the information about the area. There is a celebration of the sunset each night at the pier that is within walking distance down the beach. All of the hotels are at the opposite end of the beach so "our" beach was much less crowded. I highly recommend this rental to a couple wanting a romantic getaway. And it would be so much fun to go with other family members or another couple and rent the one bedroom unit that shares the patio area. Also they provide everything from chairs to umbrellas to beach toys at the property. Have a great time!!!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 8 days starting May 27, 2011 in this studio apartment that was spotless, very nicely decorated, 30 seconds from the beach, walking distance to all the shops, and major Clearwater Beach attractions. Angel and the owners, whom stayed part of the week in the front of the cottage, were extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions. There was a nice patio outside our door with chairs and tables. If we go to Clearwater again I would definitely call Angel again and maybe stay at one of their larger cottages. I was lucky enough to see most of the other cottages on the street that was theirs and they were really really nice. The beach was beautiful, water warm and perfect for swimming. The cottage was located in a very relaxing area of Clearwater Beach. Anyone staying their will not be disappointed.

Perfect Size, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I rented this unit last week and it was perfect! It is only two houses down from the beach, which you can see from the patio and is in walking distance to everything. I also liked that it was located on north beach which is further down from the hotels and busy areas. The beach was not crowded because it was not located next to any hotels or public parking areas. It was the perfect location.

The unit itself was adorable. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. It is all you would need for two people. The owners also provide beach towels and bath towels which is a huge plus. The kitchen is also fully stocked so you can do some meals and snacks at the studio to save some money on eating out. The patio is also a plus if you want to enjoy a lunch or dinner outside. They are also there to answer any questions you may have. Upon checking in Angel gave us a run down of the area which pointed us to check out some locations we might not have known about such as Tarpon Springs and John's Pass. We enjoyed both of these little villages/boardwalks.

I would definitely urge anyone to choose this unit or any of Angel's other properties for their next vacation or get away. They are clean, adorable and come with wonderful service from the owners!
