3 Bedroom, 2 Bath condo with spectacular views from 300 Sq foot balcony
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 and November 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 Beach
We fell in love with Clearwater Beach when we visited here in 2009 to stay with 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 10 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…..

Great location, great for families with kids
We had a great stay st this property. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries and gave us a ton of useful information from local attractions to beach access to grocery shopping. Set up was perfect for our family, which includes 2 kids under the age of 5. Would definitely stay again!
Great family vacation🌴
This was our first visit to Clearwater and it won't be our last. Karen's property exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect and the unit is beautiful. It has everything you would need and is very comfortable. Karen is also a pleasure to deal with, making the entire experience even better.
Gorgeous views, gorgeous property. Nothing better than sitting in an awesome balcony sipping fresh coffee and watching dolphins play in the harbor.
Thank you Joe! Glad that you enjoyed our little slice of paradise and hope to see you again in the future.
So sad to leave!
Our stay was nothing short of amazing! The pictures on the website do not even do this property justice, especially the million dollar view from the balcony. We watched dolphins in the bay, and the view of the 4th of July fireworks show from the comfort of the balcony was the best I’ve ever seen. We walked to the beach, restaurants and putt-putt golf, and it was a short drive to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where our granddaughter went to camp for half a day each day.
The beds were comfy, the condo was equipped with everything you could need and the decor was beautiful. Karen was amazing to work with, communication was easy and response time quick. It was the best property we have stayed at, and we all hated to leave. I highly recommend and would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Karen, for all the special touches that helped make this such a memorable experience for our family!
Thank you Denise! We can't wait to host you and your family again soon. It's guests like you that make owning a vacation rental such a pleasurable experience.
Karen’s the best!!
Karen was incredible to work with and the property was fabulous. Be sure to bring an eye mask for sleeping if you’re staying in the Master though because it’s VERY bright through the floor to ceiling windows. It was a big shock to someone who sleeps in complete darkness! There was plenty of beach equipment and towels and the walk to Clearwater Beach was only about 5 minutes. Great restaurants nearby and fun activities and excursions within walking distance as well. Great experience!!
Thank you for the kind words Jessica it was a pleasure hosting you!
I am surprised to hear about bright lights off the master bedroom.
The master bedroom looks out over the inter-coastal which is very dark at night with the exception of lights of neighboring homes across the bay.
We do have floor to ceiling Venetian blinds in the master bedroom that cover the slider in its entirety. It sounds like maybe you didn't draw the blinds or adjust the slats to block out all light.
Thanks again for the feedback and I look forward to you visiting again soon!
Perfect Beach Getaway
Our family of five loved our stay at the Harbor view Grande. The unit itself was clean and beautiful, with a nice view of the causeway. My husband and I enjoyed watching dolphins play every morning while drinking our coffee on the patio. Kids loved TV in the bedrooms at night. Everything was within walking distance, even with young kids. The owner was easy to get a hold of. Truly a great experience. We are definitely thinking if coming back!
Thank you Jennifer,
It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. I hope you can visit Clearwater Beach again and experience more of the wonderful things it has to offer!
Clearwater Municipal Marina is located within walking distance of unit. There are many local charter boats that offer deep sea fishing, whale watching and other fun activities.
