This was our first time in Clearwater Beach and we lived it. The condo is perfectly located to beaches, restaurants and a little neighborhood grocery. This was our much anticipated girls trip and the blue haven condo was perfect!

Good with compromises

  • 3 of 5

Overall the unit was clean and efficient. The location was more than we could ask for. It is close to some of the best restaurants in the area and plenty of shopping. Just steps from the beach was great, you never had to cross any streets. The unit was remodeled except for the bathroom which I was not comfortable bathing my son in the tub. Also being the unit on the main street side you could hear everyone walking on the sidewalk and every car that passed by. In addition the big street light right outside made both bedrooms very bright all night. I never could tell what time it was and the light/noise made it difficult for my son to sleep. I would suggest they install some blackout curtains but the noise cannot be fixed. Not to mention the fire station is just a block up so you hear that all hours of the day/night. You still can’t beat the location for the price. The unit had all appliances and utensils you need, but no dishwasher. The pool was clean, plenty of chairs to share with other guests and toys for kids.

Fantastic Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about #201 at Clearwater Beach Suites – the decor, the floorplan, the super-comfy beds, the furniture, and it was large enough to fit 4 adults comfortably. (I would have loved to live in such an apartment back in my younger days!) Perfect location, too – close walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops... even Pier 60. We appreciate that the suite contained a cooler, chairs and beach towels we could take to the beach. Only suggestion – add some basic sandcastle building toys. We purchased 2 buckets with shovels at the CVS and left them there in the suite for future guests.

This place was AWESOME! We loved it! It has a full size kitchen that we needed. It has a nice decor and has extra stuff to make everyone busy inside the condo and at the beach. Literally, walking distance to the beach. Nice location; we pretty much walked everywhere to the shops, restaurants, and Pier 60. We will definitely come back to this place. Can't wait to plan our next vacation here!

Great location...Great Condo...Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The unit had so many extra amenities like beach chairs, towels, cooler, and a umbrella. The kitchen is fully stocked. There is even a washer and dryer. The location of the unit can't be beat. It's steps from the ocean, restaurants, and shops. The on site staff Jane and Nicole were amazing and always asking if we needed anything. The owner Nina is so wonderful and answered any questions we had before we arrived. We can't wait to go back to Clearwater Beach Suites.

Games for the kids and free movies are enjoyed by many at the pier, and it is 4 blocks away from this complex.

Available for rent are jet skis, banana boats, fishing charters, dinner cruises, dolphin watch cruises, family bicycles, fun scooters for two and much more. There are also beach chairs, umbrellas and cabanas for rent at the beach.
