Overview

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.

Fantastic location for Cleawater's North Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property for a week over Spring Break in 2017. We had 5 people total, including two adults and three kids. Having grown up in Clearwater, I've always considered the northern part of the island my favorite. This was EXACTLY where I was hoping to stay when I was booking our place, so the location was perfect. The condo property itself is 7 units, and the common area is well maintained.

George & Robin's unit is exceptionally well kept. The kitchen and bathrooms have been updated quite nicely, and the decor is elegant. The property is right on the beach, and there are wonderful 180 degree views of the beach from the patio. I liked that the patio is somewhat private, meaning that there is a solid wall on either side, and when you sit on the patio, you don't see other folks on their patios, you only see the beach. The overall building is well built, in that the only sound we heard from the other tenants was if and when they would open their sliding glass doors to the patio.

For families, i really liked that each of my three kids had their own bed! One potential downside for families is that this is a small condo complex, and as such, there is no swimming pool on the property. This was not an issue for us, since we prefer the Gulf, but i know that some parents of small kids like what a pool has to offer.

Overall, we will be looking to stay here again, since the rental exceeded our expectations.

5 Stars Plus in Clearwater Paradise

  • 5 of 5

As first timers to VRBO, we were thoroughly impressed with this property and look forward to staying again next winter. Loved the location at the less hectic North end of the beach, but still so close to the action whenever you wanted restaurants, bars and shopping. Robin and George left a spotlessly clean condo that was fully stocked with anything and everything you could think of. Neighbours in this small building were super friendly and quiet, parking and beach access were a breeze. We hardly needed to use the car rental, walking for dinner was a regular thing every night. Long strolls on the beach, spotting dolphins swimming and beautiful sunsets were just a few things we enjoyed daily while staying here. There isn't anything we would change and we're super picky travellers. Especially loved the balcony for having breakfast, enjoying the views and before dinner drinks. Highly recommend this property for both couples and families with small children. Don't think we'll go back to the Atlantic side of Florida again, after falling in love with the Gulf Coast! Thanks again Robin & George!!

Third time guests

  • 5 of 5

Returned to Clearwater Beach for our third stay at this lovely property. You can't beat the location. Right on the beach in a small condominium property. This condominium is well maintained and stocked with everything you could possibly need. Easy walking distance to restaurants and retail. We look forward to returning for our fourth year in 2018!
