About Bobbie Hanscel

For almost fifty years our family has enjoyed the Clearwater Beach life. The easy, laid back atmosphere, white sandy beaches and many activities have drawn us back time after time with our children and grandchildren. When our Mom, who was living there at the time, moved back to Ohio, we decided to redecorate and share this wonderful beach house with others.

Bobbie Hanscel purchased this House in 1960

What makes this House unique

Our Cyprus Ave house is on a quiet side street only a few blocks from the beach ... an easy walk for children and adults. For your convenience, you'll find that a lot of the start up item you need to begin your vacation, such as paper products, soap, coffee filters, are already there at the house.

                                                                Ronald S.Lebanon, CT

                                                                Very nice house, well decorated only 2 blocks from the beach, yet in a quiet location. It feels like a home away from home. The front patio area is great for relaxing. Walking distance to restaurants, stores, the marina and pier 60. Within a short driving distance to many attractions. Clearwater beach is one of the best in the country. Watch the sunsets over the gulf every nignt. Has everything included - just bring clothes. It was a great winter get-a-way for 2 months.

                                                                Thanks Bobbie

                                                                Hi Ron,

                                                                Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We really appreciate it. We would love to have you back next year if its in your plans. My housekeeper said that you left a gift. Thank you! I look forward to seeing it when I get there in April. Bobbie

                                                                Excellent Accomodations

                                                                Chris P.

                                                                We stayed for a month in July, and it was great. The location cannot be beat if you want to be near a beach. The owner was responsive, and the price was very reasonable.

                                                                Great place for a family or couples

                                                                Dawn T.

                                                                We stayed her for a week and with our two children 14 & 11, and we loved it. It has everything you need. Short walk to the beach, we walked down to the Pier just about every night. Beds were comfy and the whole house felt like you were at home. The owner is great to work with, answer all our questions. We did not want to return to IL, but life must go on. Thanks Barbara will defiantly rent again the next time we visit Clearwater Beach.

                                                                The most perfect, clean, accommodating family friendly home!

                                                                REBECCA C.Milwaukee

                                                                This was my first time using this site and renting a beach home. Barbara was so helpful, friendly and patient throughout this whole process. When we arrived my family and I were just amazed by how gorgeous the house was and by how clean and spacious it was. The home has everything you could need or want. Perfect location and minutes walk from the beach, beach walk and great restaurants/bars.We loved everything about this home and its location. My family and I did not want to leave! We look forward to creating more fun and happy memories in this home. If you're looking for a place close to the beach, family friendly, clean and spacious...this is the home for you! Thanks again Barbara.

                                                                Great family beach stay!

                                                                We stayed at this property for two weeks with our three teenage kids and found it delightful! We even had a couple join us one night and everyone fit fine! Place was comfy and well-stocked with everything you could need! Great front patio for relaxing. Short walk to Palm Pavilion area of beach. There's also a public pool at the end of the block. Frenchy's beachfront restaurant is fun, Bob Heilman's Beachcomber is a nice place for a meal. Cooter's has AYCE crab legs! Beds were comfy, atmosphere was nice. Would definitely recommend this for a fun beach getaway! The owner was great to work with, very communicative and responsive! We left some clothes there and she contacted us right away. Would definitely go back!

                                                                perfect family vacation

                                                                Perfect little home for our Clearwater vacation. Location was ideal for our needs - only 2 streets away from the beach. Public pool and tennis courts as well as a library right on the corner.

                                                                House was clean, beds & pillows were comfortable. Plenty of towels for bath & beach. Nothing missing - fully equipped kitchen, all the utensils and small appliances you need. Plenty of beach materials as well; beach umbrella, chairs, floating devices, beach toys - name it, they had it. Beach was beautiful and not too crowded & not too close to the big hotel scene.

                                                                Overall; Our party of 5 had a great time. House exceeded my expectations - I don't think the pictures do justice to how pretty this little spot is. Great location & great value. I have already recommended this home to friends. And I would return.
