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 netflix 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.

We also provide beach chairs, beach umbrella, and beach towels for you to use.

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 the 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 Beach

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.

Fantastic Beach Retreat; Extremely Responsive Owners

  • 5 of 5

Condo: Very clean; well stocked to get started; quiet; comfortable furnishings; up-to-date appliances.

Owners: Extremely responsive; They communicated clearly and answered our questions quickly. Online description is very accurate.

Building: Direct beach access, dedicated parking spot, very quiet street. Can literally walk for miles in either direction on the beach. Million dollar sunset views from lanai.

We have stayed in rental units around the world and have not had a better experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We love our condo and it’s location too. When we remodeled and furnished it we did it as if we were going to live there ourselves, making it a home and not just a rental condo. And then we found the best cleaners on the beach to help us maintain it. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Robin

This was an amazing property and a fabulous setting. The unit was exceptionally well maintained and well-equipped. There wasn't anything that you could have wanted that they didn't have. We had a wonderful time and created memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
