About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom (sleeps 4)+ convertible bed

Our newly renovated condo offers the perfect combination of tranquil water views and all the amenities of an upscale hotel - but all for the price of a Clearwater Beach condo rental. We are centrally located in the heart of the world's famous beaches making our condo one of the best Clearwater Beach weekly rentals for leisure and business travelers alike. We offer our guests exceptional personalized service. We hope that a stay with us will evoke both luxury and full relaxation and leaving you wanting to come back and visit us again.

A Win Dixie or Publix is just blocks away with everything you need to stock your fridge, so you will never go hungry with this kind of convenience at your fingertips. Continue down the elevator to the pool or beach (just remember to bring your sunscreen).

There are two covered cabanas by the pool or rent a beach covered double lounger. Grab the volleyball from the office and play beach volleyball or you can get the sticks and pucks for a game of shuffle board. When it?s time for lunch, go get some Grouper from your fridge which you caught from one of several fishing boats in the area, and cook it on one of the three grills by the Tiki Hut. Grouper sandwiches anyone? Spend your afternoon with some serious beach time. The white sand beckons you to the calm warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As the sun begins to set, go get your camera for one of the prettiest sun sets in the world.

''Getting hungry?'' Shower off your sand and slip into something comfortable to make your way out to one of the many excellent restaurants in the area on Gulf Blvd. If you would rather have dinner in the kitchen, you will find everything you need. Don't forget your flashlight for spotting sand crabs on the beach at night. For those of you that prefer the night life, this is the place for some real fun night spots. Also, enjoy getting some rest and relaxation because there is just another sunrise and sunset that awaits your awakening.

We have spent a lot of time researching the perfect location for a vacation retreat. We have traveled to several destinations such as Hawaii, Jamaica, Mexico, and all the way from the west Coast of California to America's east coasts. We also visited the center states of the U.S - from the mountains to the deserts. The Clearwater Beach area always had it all - from reasonable prices, a safe place to explore, no language barriers, excellent restaurants

AND the water sports, beautiful golf courses, numerous activities, historical sites and the white sand beaches with water which is most ideal, clean, calm, and warm. See for yourself, you too will come back. We did!

Awesome last minute rental

  • 5 of 5

My 2 children and I vacationed at Holiday Villas III starting on 7/16/2016. We had rented a 2 bedroom gulf view unit as my older children were planning on going but were unable to at the last minute. We throughly enjoyed our stay in the unit we rented. We decided we were going to stay another week and the unit we had stayed in did not have availability. I inquired at the desk about other units available and was shown two 2 bedroom units. Sorry to say I was not impressed with either. We were to checkout on 7/23. When the office opened I asked if they had any other units and she informed me that they had a cancellation and that unit 509 was available. I asked to look at it and I was so very pleasantly surprised as I found the unit to be beautiful and perfect for the 3 of us. The furnishings were new and the unit was so tastefully decorated. I immediately went to inquire about renting the unit. We rented the unit for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved the bay side as we saw dolphins everyday and we even saw a stingray. The only thing that I could say that this unit needed was a newer blender as my son likes pina coladas, without the alcohol of course, as he just turned sixteen. We plan on returning next summer for two weeks and renting 509 if the unit is available. We found Holiday Villas III to be a very safe and convenient location and it is family oriented. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home away from home with us Stephan.

Beautiful Condo, Amazing View, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family (actually 7 families) stay at Holiday Villas III for a week every summer and the location is fantastic. This particular unit was one of the prettiest units I've seen here. It was decorated and maintained beautifully. The kitchen was well stocked with LOTS of pots and pans, pitchers, bowls, etc. Anything you could possibly need was included in that unit. The beds were very comfortable, as were the couches. The overall feel was very inviting and we had a great week. I needed a two bedroom unit for next year, so I unfortunately couldn't re-book this unit, but other family members in our group are renting this unit for next year.

Stunning Condo w/ great view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect! My family of four loved our stay!! We enjoyed having the spectacular views of the waterway from the balcony, we even got to see a dolphin. The condo was beautiful and well maintained, had everything we needed for our stay. Our children enjoyed the heated pool! The beach only steps away was a huge plus, and saving us the headache of not having to travel and find parking for public beach access. The location of this condo was perfect, and easy to access. This condo was truly a great find and will definitely look forward to staying again! Thanks so much Stephan for sharing this gem with us!

Excellent rental at an excellent price!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a week at this condo. Stephan was excellent to deal with and very prompt with all his responses. The condo is decorated very well and had everything we needed right down to beach chairs. Management of this building was excellent and quick to answer any questions. The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 was road noise. Considering all the work that has gone into this unit I am sure that double glazed patio door and window, as some other units have, are on the list and would move this to a 5 star in my opinion. That said I would not hesitate to stay again as we definitely enjoyed our time there!

Bargain bayfront one bedroom

  • 4 of 5

This unit intracoastal waterway view unit is well-decorated in a Tommy Bahama tropical motif in burgundy and dark woods, with comfortable tweedy sofa and loveseat. Plenty of beach chairs and floaties, diminutive balcony for sunrise over the waterway for just two. The updated bath and kitchen is one of the nicest we've seen in this complex (our third stay here) with granite counters and updated tile with plentiful pots, and kitchen tools (although be aware cupboard space is minimal). While it's a bargain, be prepared for road noise (the sliders haven't been updated yet) and the two queen headboards are a mere 3 feet away from the neighbor's front steel door, which slammed at 6:45 a.m. promptly every morning as she went off to work -- we bought ear plugs. Our kids came for a few days around Christmas but we never found the linens for the fold out sofa, so perhaps bring your own.

Owner's Response: I try to do all I can to make my guests as comfortable as possible. I have no control over road noise. My unit is on the 5th floor so road noise should be at a minimum I have no control about noise others may make in and around the building. As far as linens are concerned you could have contacted me. Plus main office would have supplied what ever was needed for the bedding. If we kept linens in the unit they would get stale and musty smelling. Better to ask office for fresh linens. They will be supplied. Warmest regards Stephen M. R
