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.

Amazing 'Home Away' for the Family

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time in this beautiful condo. We got up each morning, walked out the front of the building and set up our (supplied) umbrella and chairs (enough for our family of 5) right on the shoreline, spent the day coming and going and took them down at sunset - every day! Very clean, modern and comfortable. Many great restaurants on the island to choose from. Can't wait to go back! Thanks for a great family vacation spot....

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We decided to splash out and get a more expensive condo for our second week of our holidays, in Clearwater. It was money well spent. The condo was spotless and a well equipped home-from-home; which made the stay very pleasant. The condo was well equipped, and they even had more kitchen gadgets than we have at home! Getting in and out was simple, and the location was nice and quiet, with amazing sea views. It was slightly further north than the more busy shopping area, which meant for a little more walking with the kids to get to places, but in return the beaches were quieter than down the other end, and it was more peaceful at night, so all in all a good decision. Communication with the owners was great, they were nice and proactive, and everything was provided to us well in advance of needing it. Also the provision of our own beach equipment and games to take to the beach was a nice touch. Thanks very much Robin and George!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and description are 100% accurate. We had a wonderful week at the condo and Robin was always very helpful with any questions we had. We had trouble with the parking at the condo on a couple of different days, but that was the only problem we had.

We love Clearwater Beach. It was our second vacation to the area and the kids favorite part is going to the pier to watch the street performers. Tons of great restaurant choices and shops.

Fantastic apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this fantastic apartment 22-29 July. Our first visit to Clearwater and hopefully not the last. Our objective was to relax for a week and unwind and that is exactly what we did. The apartment was clean, equipped with everything you could need and spacious enough to live there all the time. Very good wi-fi too which pleased my teenage daughter! View from the balcony was beautiful, best place to enjoy my morning cup of tea and watch the sun sets. Perfect location with private parking and within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Our favourites were Frenchy's Rockaway (everything we had there was excellent and they have the best fries I have ever tasted), Frenchy's the Original (Gumbo was my favourite), Palm (best view whilst eating and fabulous Nachos) and Toucans Bar ($2 for a large Budweiser - can't beat that!). Angelos Pizza just round the corner was good for take away (BBQ chicken pizza was lovely). We had a fantastic break and would highly recommend it if you want somewhere to just get away from it all and relax.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and loved it. The place felt like home. The condo is clean, updated and located in a great spot. It is away from the busy areas but within a short walk of everything. From the perfect sunsets to watching the dolphins from the balcony in the morning, I highly recommend this place. The owners were great to work with. Every time we sent a text message with a question they would respond the same day. We will definitely visit again someday.

Wonderful week in Clearwater

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the end of June. The condo and location are great. Having beach front access was very convenient. We would choose this property again if we were traveling to Clearwater.
