About the property

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.

Excellent location right on the beach

Excellent relaxed vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay the week before Christmas 2016. The condo is in a perfect location away from the crowds of Pier 60, yet close enough to walk to everything. We barely used the car while we were there. We highly recommend dinner at Clear Sky, a short walk away. The condo was nicely appointed with washer & dryer, lots of kitchen tools, and even beach chairs. We sat for many hours on the balcony overlooking the ocean. Even saw dolphins form there. We would definitely rent this condo again!!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Clearwater Beach for the week of Nov. 5-12 and were thoroughly impressed with this condo. We felt at home the moment we walked in. There were so many nice touches in the condo - a very well equipped kitchen, nice quality linens, extremely clean and so many extra items (small cooler for the beach, umbrella, beach towels and chairs, beach toys for the kids). The pictures are very accurate - the condo is right on the beach and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The sunset was amazing every evening we were there and we even saw dolphins from our view. There is so much to do here...we just loved our week in Clearwater Beach. Thank you Robin and George

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.
