THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!!

This unit not only offers a great BEACH VIEW, but it has been updated with a fun beach vacation theme, and it’s constantly monitored for repairs and/or improvements needed. New tile floor!! One bedroom has a king size bed and walk-in closet. The other bedroom has 2 twin beds, plus there is a queen size sofa bed (with a top air mattress , very comfortable) allowing accommodations for up to 6 guests.

Prime location on North Clearwater Beach close to food markets, pharmacies, shops, restaurants, specialty coffee shops, ice cream shops, and entertainment.

Theme parks are also within reach from here, like Busch Gardens in Tampa, as well as the world known theme parks in the Orlando area. It is a great idea to combine your theme park experience with some beach time.

Well maintained and convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay at this conveniently located condo. Two items which I think need attention are the dryer and twin bed. The dryer was very dirty and has a good deal of lint built up. It did not dry effecively and is possibly a fire hazard.

We used only one twin bed next to the closet. The headboard needs tightening. Was very noisy.

Owner's Response: Hello Mary J, we are glad you had a good time and enjoyed the condo. Thank you for your comments, we will look into both issues that you mention immediately as we work very hard to give our guests a 5 star experience. The bed will be tightened right away. We paid a contractor over $700.00 in January of this year to take care of precisely a similar problem, they are coming back to see what's wrong this time. We look forward to having you back next time you visit Clearwater Beach.

This place was PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and teenaged son and daughter stayed at this condo for 5 nights over our 2016 Spring Break. The location was incredible and we were able to walk every where we wanted to go. We had eveything we needed in the condo and the staff were all wonderful. We would absolutely come back again .

Small size, nice location

  • 3 of 5

Overall the place is pretty average. The location is good with the beach only 0.5 blocks away. It's overall a fairly small condo, the weather was bad for a couple of days and we felt cramped when we spent time indoors (2 adults, 2 toddlers). Cleanliness was ok, my wife had to sweep the floors when we got there as the floor was quite dusty.

Owner's Response: We have addressed the dusty floors issue with our management company They have assured us that it won't happen again. This is the first time we have a complain about. We cannot control the weather, but we work hard and pay attention to details in order to offer a nice, comfortable, clean, and fully equipped condo for our guests to fully enjoy their stay.

Cute, quaint, and well-equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 really enjoyed this property. The location was wonderful: not in the middle of the big resorts, close to the beach, close to shops and restaurants. The property was clean and well-equipped. The details were all covered: linens, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, umbrella, hand soaps (some places don't even provide that), tissues, coffee, laundry detergent, and there were some community beach toys shared near the pool like boogie boards, sand pails, and other things. There was plenty of storage for our week's worth of luggage (even the baby stuff, which is A LOT). The office was very helpful. The only negative was that the dryer didn't work, but the cleaning manager took our laundry to dry. We would definitely stay here again. Do yourself a favor and have lunch or dinner at Pearly's Beach Eats and get the fish tacos. THE BEST! We drove into Tampa and went to the Museum of Science and Industry, the Lowry Park Zoo, and the Glazer Children's museum. Locally, we enjoyed the shops, the beach, and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. This quiet property was perfect for our family beach vacation!
