The condominium is very comfortable. The kitchen is fully furnished with pots and pans and tons of glasses, plates, silverware and cutlery. It also has a blender and a God-sent coffee maker!!! :)
The washer and dryer is so handy also. Tip: buy the tide or gain little pockets they work great and it's just the right amount of soap.
The bathrooms are also fully stocked with towels of all sizes! The room adjacent to the smaller bedroom is very tiny,
The mattresses are not the most comfortable; but are good. The foldable bed in one of the rooms was awesome and very handy. The TVs in the rooms don't have the best connection so the quality of image is not the greatest.
If you are planning to go to the beach often, be ready to broom the house often as the sand on your feet is very noticeable. The beach is less than 5 mins away walking distance! The beach is definitely one of the best we've ever experienced! The condo has a beach umbrella that you can use and save $30 which is what they charge for an umbrella rental.
The pool is not part of the condo complex; but is part of the motel next door. So, your pool experience will be based on the people staying next door. One day there were people spitting from their balconies and it was no fun. Other than that the pool area and the pool was nice.
The balcony is shared by all unit owners, but the views are breathtaking. There are Dolphins always there, so it's guaranteed that you'll see some.
There is a ton of construction going on in the island, so traffic is bad and it's very loud during the day.
Overall it's an awesome place to rent, nice and affordable!
Stayed at this condo for a week with my wife and two children. My wife, who likes to cook, enjoyed the fully furnished kitchen and I liked that it saved us money by eating in a few times during our stay. We both appreciated the cleanliness of this unit. We have stayed in many condos over the last few years and often they are tired from being rented so much. This place is obviously owned by someone who has a pride of ownership. This was evidenced by the quality of the furnishings. There was even a copy of Dolphin Tale for my kids to watch. We watched the dolphins swim up the channel while sitting on the patio and we took the kids on the pirate ship and there is even free movies at Pier 60 at night. This was a great getaway for my family and I highly recommend this unit if you are coming to Clearwater Beach. Everything is within walking distance of the unit. We will be back!
We loved our time in Clearwater. The condo was super clean and well stocked with everything vacationer may need. We were apprehensive due to the fact that it didn't have a private balcony but the spacious sitting area outside was quiet and you can't beat the view. We would definitely stay here again if we venture out to Clearwater at some point. One minor issue was that the beach chairs were somewhat old and uncomfortable, other than that it was all perfect.
LOVED THE CONDO! Beautiful view, great location. Dolphins from balcony!
The condominium was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Nicely equipped kitchen. Bathrooms are nicely updated. Beds were very comfortable. An IPod dock would be a very nice addition to the amenities. Location is good. Short walk to the beach. Plenty of parking.
A few minor negatives........The deck is not as depicted in the photos as it is actually continuous and shared by all residents on your floor. Not necessarily a problem but it does detract from your privacy a bit. The warning on the thermostat about not setting below 72 should be corrected as the condo did get warm through the night. We were told there were beach chairs available for our use. This was not the case. Be forewarned....traffic in Clearwater Beach on weekends is heavy and moving around by car is difficult. This changed dramatically on Monday and the balance of the week was good for car travel.
Overall, a good experience and a solid "B" rating.
This condo ended up being perfect for my husband and I and our 2 sons (ages 6 and 8). It was clean and quiet, and just the right amount of a walk to the beach and to the Pier. We had a problem with the oven, and called the managers about that, and they sent someone over the next day to get it fixed. There was a shopping cart and a luggage rack to help get items into the elevator and up to the 5th floor. It was so nice to be able to sit out on the balcony area in the mornings and watch the sun come up over the bay. This was our first big family vacation, and it was a great success. We would definitely recommend this condo to any family or couple!
