Clearwater Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Colony Surf is a small complex on the quiet end (North) of Clearwater Beach.

From the moment you walk in you will be mesmerized by the view. You don't get any closer to the beach than this. Our two bedroom/two bath condo has been remodeled from floor to ceiling including all new stainless steel appliances and furniture.

The living room has a leather couch and loveseat, a huge 50inch television ready for your net flix account, and the best view in the house--13ft sliding glass doors to the balcony where you can watch the dolphins playfully swim by and gorgeous sunsets every night. The kitchen is fully equipped to make a meal for 2 or the whole family. The dining area has seating for 6. There is a full size washer and dryer.

The Master Bedroom has a king size bed and sliding door to the balcony so you can wake every morning to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico or fall asleep at night to the light of the full moon glistening off the water.

The Master Bathroom has an over-size walk in shower and two sinks.

The second bedroom has 3 beds: 1 full size bed and twin bunk beds.

About Robin and George Kruse

We originate from Illinois. We are semi-retired and bought a 'winter' home in Central Florida a few years ago. On one of our winters here we started 'beach hopping' to find the best of Florida's many beaches. We instantly fell in love with Clearwater Beach area and bought a condo. We plan to fully retire to Clearwater Beach soon.

Robin and George Kruse purchased this condo in 2012

Why Robin and George Kruse chose Clearwater Area

Clearwater Beach has so many activities for every age group. Colony Surf is located on the quieter North end of the beach. But it is still within walking distance to all of the tourist hot spots including Pier 60. You can check out the many restaurants and shops on your stroll down to the Beach Walk and Marina where you can charter a fishing boat, take a sightseeing cruise, rent jet skis and bicycles, or take a Segway Tour. What better way to get familiar with all that the area has to offer.

Peaceful beachfront spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our four kids and it was the perfect location for us! It was a quiet (except for some work being done around the building) and not too busy spot, but close enough to walk to restaurants and the pier (about 1 mile). The condo had a great kitchen and a cookbook opened to a page for an easy fish dinner, which I made and was great! The bedrooms were perfect for our larger family. In the master bedroom has a large walk in closet with a highchair and pack n play! Our youngest is two and a half and slept in a bed, however if I had a younger one, the large closest was a perfect quiet spot to set up the pack n play. Of course the best part was being right on the beach with a balcony! I hope to return and would stay here again!

# 8 Cambria Condo #203 Clearwater Beach, Fl

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as advertised: Clean,modern, great location literally on the beach,every amenity you could/would need in the condo plus beach chairs,umbrella and a six-pack size cooler.

Off street parking a huge plus as this end of North Beach which has limited parking close to the beach The proximity to restaurants and Pier 60 is another plus.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a great beach vacation.

Amazing location, beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo the second week of August 2016. The condo is absolutely lovely and has everything you need. It is spacious, clean and decorated to a very high standard. The master bed is huge! and we loved the large walk-in shower in the master suite. The location is great with the beach immediately outside your window. It is located far away enough to be at the quieter and more relaxing end of the beach but it is just a short stroll away to the busier end for the pier, restaurants and entertainment. It was very quiet at night time. We saw dolphins from the balcony, hermit crabs on the beach, and pelicans on the pier. There is lots of choice for going out for lunch and dinner all close by. We had no trouble parking in the car park behind the unit, there was always spaces available and all the neighbours we met were really kind and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending this condo and cannot think of one thing they could improve on as it was perfect for us, we lovely every minute.

Wonderful Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

Robin's condo was exactly as described and perfect for our family. Spent 4th of July week in Clearwater Beach and had a wonderful time. Condo location is unbeatable. Close enough to the action, but far enough north that the beaches are far less crowded than down closer to the pier. If you want to get into the mix you're less than 1-mile from the hub of downtown - a very easy walk. The condo amenities are fantastic, from the furniture, to the kitchen, to the bathrooms, to the floors. They've obviously invested significantly in this condo. Having a washer & dryer in the unit was a savior. Walk out your door, down a few steps and out to the beach. Outdoor shower available to rinse off on your way back in. Sunsets from the balcony were fantastic! As a native Detroiter, was excited to find Detroit Coney Island a few blocks down the street! All-around GREAT property. If ever back to Clearwater Beach, this will be our place.

Owner Description On The Money

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several VRBO properties, Robyn's description is dead on. The pics are accurate, you step off on to white sand. The view from the balcony is stunning. The inside is nicely decorated with all the comforts of home. Robyn responds quickly, thanks for the commuter suggestions, you were right, we did not need a car. There is no doubt any future trip to Clearwater will be at this property.

We did see a couple of dolphins, enjoyed the easy walk up the beach to water sports, took the trolley and enjoyed some fresh seafood.

Bring some sun screen and head down for a great relaxing vacation.

Thanks Robyn!
