About Karen Bickford

We currently reside in Bolton Massachusetts also known as Apple Country. My husband and I are both small business owners and have a lovely teenage daughter. We love to fly down to Clearwater Beach for some sun and fun when time permits. May and October are our absolute favorite times of the year to visit. The weather is just right, not too hot or too cool.

Karen Bickford purchased this condo in 2009

Why Karen Bickford chose Clearwater Area

We fell in love with Clearwater Beach when we came here in 2009 to visit some friends. Our plan was to look for a property that we could purchase and then later retire to.

We were at the time looking outside of Clearwater Beach for the right property. After viewing several properties south of Clearwater Beach and coming back to Clearwater Beach at the end of each day; we made the decision that we really should try to find something in Clearwater Beach.

Our Realtors Alex and Laren Jansen of Christies Coastal Properties Group brought us to see our now unit at Harborview Grande. We once again fell in love with the breathtaking views from the balcony and well thought out floor plan and decided to purchase. It has been 7 years since we purchased and are very happy that we did.

The location is so tropical that I often feel that I am on a Caribbean Island. Cancun/Playa Del Carmen Mexico is my all time favorite vacation spot. Clearwater Beach reminds me a lot of Mexico without the long flight and occasional stomach upset 

It is a great vacation area for families with small children as well as the younger generation that want the nightlife.

The older generation will appreciate the ease of walking the Beach Walk, bicycling, swimming in the warm gulf waters and enjoying the great sunsets. Restaurants and shopping are plentiful in the area as well.

Clearwater Beach is a very diverse culture that has something for everyone. We absolutely love the area and all the great things there are to do and see.

We ask that you too come to Clearwater Beach and see all the many things the area has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

The balcony and the views stole my heart away; there really is nothing better than sitting on the balcony taking in the panoramic views of Clearwater Bay and the Gulf of Mexico watching the boats go by and dolphins frolicking in the water below.

The well appointed floor plan was integral in my decision to purchase as well as the location and security of the property. It was and is still all good…..

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This condo is everthing we hoped for and If we are able to come back to Florida, we will definitely stay here again. We had a mother/daughter get away and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is walking distance to everything we needed and we loved watching the Dolphins from the balcony. We appreciated on how equipped the condo was to include beach towels, chairs, coolers, and a beach umbrella. Thank you for sharing your condo with us.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in April/May 2016 for 2 weeks and had a great time. The apartment is undoubtedly the best equipped home we have stayed in, was in very good condition and was very comfortable to stay in. Watching the dolphins from the balcony was wonderful and we would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to others.

Fantastic Stay! - April 2nd - April 9th, 2016

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this unit from Karen and I can't say enough about the outstanding experience.

The unit was everything she said it would be and then some. This unit had absolutely everything you would need. In fact, I seen three other units while we were there and Karen's was the nicest and had the most amenities.

The views from both the Master bedroom as well as the living room were superb. Watching the dolphins and manatees come into the bay to play daily, were a pleasure to see. The property was extremely secure, not that it needed to be, and walking distance to everything.

I would highly recommend renting this unit from Karen and we look forward to being a return customer!

Undeniably awonderfull vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and comfortable, the weather was warm with sunny skies and we could not ask for a better vacation!! We enjoyed all the activities but really loved the segway tour and seeing the dolphins! I would highly recommend this condo if you want a central location but still close enough to the hotspots!!
