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.

Beautiful Condo and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Condo exceeded our expectations! Great location. Away from the hustle and bustle but still a short walk away to Pier 60 and Restaurants. Unfortunately we had rain most days but still enjoyed our stay with a day at the spa, sunset dinner cruise, shopping and even hit the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa which is less than an hour away. Highly recommend this won't be disappointed!

So relaxing and perfect for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your condo on the beach. It was perfect for our family vacation. We enjoyed everything about it. Short walks to pretty much everywhere on Clearwater Beach. Patio was wonderful in the early mornings while watching the dolphins. And in the afternoons when kids wanted to nap and rest. Thank you again! We hope to stay again next year!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I think the Condo is great because it is only seven units, 5 I believe are full time residents so you do not have the hustle and bustle of the larger units. In addition restaurants and bars are all within walking distance so no need to the care out if you do not want to. Also found a Publix close by which was nice. And finally you can not beat being just steps from the beach. As far as the interior is concerned, always clean with updated appliances. In addition beach chairs and towels are provided. This is our second time at the condo and we enjoyed it as much this time around.

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.
