About Bonnie Alfriend

We live in California, but love the beautiful beaches on the gulf in Florida. Terry is a professor and space researcher, Bonnie works on their vacation rental properties in Florida and Maui.

We have 2 adult children, daughter Kim is an attorney in LA and son Kyle is a real estate executive in Ohio. We have 4 wonderful grandsons. Family is our most precious gift and we love nothing better than spending time with them diving in Hawaii or shelling and swimming in Clearwater Beach

Bonnie Alfriend purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bonnie Alfriend chose Clearwater Area

Sandpearl Resort is a 5 diamond world famous resort. It has been voted in the top 10 resorts in the world by Expedia. Clearwater Beach is considered in the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Miles of sandy beach with shells galore. One of the most relaxing and quietest times we have in a very busy life.

What makes this condo unique

Sunsets, a glass of wine by the fire pit at the end of a beautiful day, daily activities and educational programs by the resort, the lagoon pool with two hot tubs, a wonderful spa day here at the resort, working out the fitness center, a long walk on the beach collecting beautiful shells and meeting new friends. Biking on the 30 mile bike path is a joy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We also just wanted to say THANK YOU for all your assistance in helping us have a great vacation. This was our 4th Spring Break at The Sandpearl and we thoroughly enjoyed renting your unit. The views were stunning! Everything we expected and frankly more given the view not only to the Gulf but also to the north up towards Palm Pavilion. Georgie and her staff were professional and did an awesome job cleaning the two days we scheduled them. We couldn't rave more about your unit and the experience in renting from you. Thank you!

Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 4 nights in May. The accommodations were top notch! The condo was spacious, clean and had an amazing view. We enjoyed the balcony doors open to feel the ocean breeze and hear the waves. Coming from Chicago, this was heavenly. Having stayed previously at the Sandpearl, we were excited to get the same quality room for less by going through Bonnie and Terry. Resort fees were included which was a big plus! Resort food was a bit pricey, however there are many great local restaurants within walking distance and the full kitchen leaves you the opportunity to prepare your own meals. You do not receive the maid service daily but we did not miss it due to the washer and drier in the unit. We are looking forward to a return trip in the future!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed in this condo or a week. My wife and I slept in the main bed and each of my two kids had their own pullout bed. It ended up working out great. Plenty of space, not that we needed it. We were literally outside from sun up to sun down every day. The beach was amazing. Saw dolphins right out front several times. The children enjoyed it much more than a previous Disney trip. Swim and play in sand all day every day. The unit itself was great. I was skeptical to book it at first. Wanted to make sure my family got the full experience, and they really do with this VRBO. It was nice having a washer and dryer in the unit. The full kitchen was very nice as well although we never really used it! Valet parking which is $25 a day normally is included, as is any resort fee etc. We rented a car for the week and only used it once. Everything was within walking distance. Great crab shacks, and other restaurants, a grocery store, CVS etc. All within a block or two. I would book it again in a heart beat.

WOrst experience ever,

  • 1 of 5

we went a couple of days ago with my family, the two sofa beds are very unconfortable, the sheets are in very bad conditions.

To be able to use the sofa bed outside we had to move a coffee table, that was also in very bad condition and broken in some places.

And to our surprise the property owner, seeking someone to charge the table and buy a new one charged us to our credit card us$600 without any previous notification.

This has never happened to us, we are very honest people and if we had really broken the table we gladly pay for it. We explained that to the property owner.

Be careful providing you credit card information, we just lost us$600 unfairly

Owner's Response: We started not to respond to this totally false and misrepresented review but felt it necessary to do so for our loyal guests. I am sure you realize how untrue this is based on our 5 star reviews. In fact a VRBO representative said inquiring guests would read the other reviews and know the truth. When the guest left our suite the large coffee table was left broken in pieces and the entire condo was a total mess. Not only did they destroy our furniture but I received a call from them shortly after they left thanking me for such a lovely stay and stating how wonderful our unit was. There was NO mention of anything broken or damaged.When our housekeeping service arrived they found the condo completely trashed, and the table broken in pieces in the middle of the floor. The Sandpearl Resort and Spa is a 5 diamond resort hotel and this is one of their supreme luxury Penthouses. To state that the beds are uncomfortable, sheets in bad condition and a coffee table broken is not only untrue but for anyone familiar with the quality of the resort (we have the same furnishings and supplies) they know this is unfounded. Reference the coffee table and the condition our condo was left in after this guest please note the following: we use a housekeeping service that has been voted by Megan"s List as the number one service in the state of Florida.The owner of the service personally checked out the suite and took pictures prior to this family's arrival. I am happy to share before and after photos with anyone.The coffee table was not broken prior and was in perfect condition as she moved it herself during her inspection . After the guest left she took pictures of the damage for me. I contacted the guest by phone and email and received no response. I charged their credit card for 1/3 of the costs of the coffee table and did not charge them for the extra hours housekeeping charged me to put the condo back in proper condition for arriving guests. Nor did I charge them for engineering to remove the pieces of a very large coffee table, which they destroyed. This was the 1st time we have ever had to charge a guest for damage to our properties. However, this was blatant disregard and total disrespect to leave a property in this condition. We are happy to say that prior guests have been wonderful but not to own up to something of this magnitude is beyond understanding. They are anger because we charged them a small portion of our loses. This is their way to retaliate I assume..

Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

We (family with 2 young boys) spent 6 gorgeous days in the Penthouse Suite in October. I can't say enough good things about this property. The condo was spacious and immaculate, the furnishings and appliances were very high quality, and the sunsets were unbelievable. The location is great too....walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. I never wanted to leave. The Sandpearl is also a fantastic hotel. After comparing this hotel to others in the area (Hyatt, etc..) we really wanted to stay here due to the size of the hotel, it's location right on the beach, and amenities. The staff was incredibly friendly (they let our children hang out in the Kids camp room and build legos (with us supervising) when it was closed due to it being offseason. Everyone greeted us with a smile. The pool never felt crowded and the landscaping in the pool area made it feel very private. I have rented on VRBO several times over the years, and this was our absolute favorite rental. Bonnie was a pleasure to work with. I hope we can make another trip next year.

Awesome Week

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at the Sandpearl Resort before and had a wonderful time. It is a five star resort on an incredible beach. This time we stayed in the one bedroom suite we discovered through VRBO. This suite is nicely decorated, with everything you could need on vacation. If our previous stay at Sandpearl was wonderful, staying in this suite made this time truly awesome. When we arrived the suite was immaculate. The sunsets from both balconies were unbelievable, with each day better than the one before. We are already planning on coming back next year. Would highly recommend staying in this suite.
