About Patricia and/or Timothy

We have been married now for 36years and live in Kansas. We have two beautiful daughters, terrific son-in laws and four adorable grandchildren. Life is short and we wanted to capture the best location for our preferred water, sand and sun filled vacations as well as look forward to a relaxing retirement location in our future. As we searched the entire Florida coast line for the perfect vacation home we fell in love with the quaint, peaceful area in and around Indian Rocks Beach. This fits the sand, sun, fun needs for our family. We are just steps from a jump into ocean waves, as well as short walking distances to local areas of entertainment, restaurants and shopping. Our Condo 'SERENITY's BEACH HAVEN' is tucked in between Clearwater and St Petersburg, plus sits just 27 miles from busy city life in Tampa. This provides the best of all worlds for us, a special place to share with our four precious grandchildren as we create lifelong memories together.

Regarding our stay July 31-August 13 2016: The description of the property and amenities were spot on. Everything was clean and in good repair. We had a very comfortable stay. The property is great and the area is beautiful. The beach was great! The owners are very responsive to any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend this property and I would stay there again. We didn't want to leave :( During our stay we spent a lot of time at the beach. We drove down to John's Pass for deep sea fishing, shopping and parasailing. We also drove up to Clearwater to see the marine aquarium. We brought our bikes and also did some fishing at the beach as well as the nature preserve up the street. Our group consisted of my husband and I, our 19 and 15 year old daughters and a friend of theirs who is 16. The area is quiet and we felt safe to allow them to go out alone on their bicycles or walking. The pool was also nice. The beach and the pool were never over crowded and there were plenty of times when there wasn't anyone in the pool. A great time was had by all!

Summary of Rental

  • 1 of 5

For the price, the property is not up to date and could use some upgrades. For example, the showers were old and dark with a plastic curtain and bad shower heads. The unit smelled musty and kitchen needs to be modernized.

The pool is rundown, my husband had to skim it every day. Shrubbery on the property and leading to the beach was very overgrown and hazardous. Finally, tree trimmers came to the property on Thursday. It was very disruptive, loud and debris was left on all the lounge chairs, the pool deck and even my car in the lot. The outside bathrooms smelled and were not clean, the garbage stayed in the cans the whole week.

Check out at 10:30 is extremely too early. Due to these factors, I don't foresee recommending it to friends or even returning to the Hamilton House.

This is unfortunate as we love the area, the attractions and restaurants. However, we will stay elsewhere next year.

Owner's Response: GOOD NEWS , OUR BRAND NEW FURNITURE ARRIVED SHORTLY AFTER THIS VISIT ALONG WITH UPDATES TO THE SHOWER HEADS , SHOWER CURTAINS AND MORE plus all your concerns have been addressed. Marcella, Distressed by your concerns we immediately contacted the travelers staying in our home directly following your visit. They assured us that the grounds were in good order and that our home "exceeded their expectations". Due to the High winds and constant rains that occurred over three full days as a result of the tropical storm/Hurricane that hit Florida, the routine daily maintenance and twice weekly trash services were delayed. The clean up and routine services schedules were just beginning again during your stay. We are so sorry for the timing of this event and your visit. We wished we could have known about this service problem during your stay so we could contact those involved to restore services sooner. We hope you do visit this condo complex and our home in the future,. You could enjoy our new furniture as well as join the majority of our guests(reviews) that are extremely complimentary of our home as a desirable well kept fresh, clean and comfortable location.

Good location but out Of date condo

  • 2 of 5

God contact with owner by mail.

The apartment was in need of new furniture, all of them. Excample: two kitchens chairs had no propper bottom, the sofa was very soft There was plenty Of space except for bedroom two.

The kitchens also needed an update.

The location next to beach was great.

Large balcony viewing north. You can get a look at the beach if you loocked to the west.

Wonderful getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time thanks to the great rental home and owners. The place is comfortable, spacious, and it had everything you need for a beach vacation. The location right on the beach was just wonderful. We were always just a few steps away from the beautiful, private beach. The pool was great too. The owners are attentive, communicate as often as necessary and super helpful. They made us feel welcome and right at home. We can't wait to visit again. We highly recommend them for your own getaway.

Comfortable condo, great location, clean and welcoming.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Tim and Patty's condo in July. There was lots of room for 4 adults and 2 young children. The master bedroom was a nice oasis for us (the grandparents) as it has an attached bathroom , TV, and access to the balcony. The pull out couch was used a couple of times and it was extremely comfortable. Being right on the beach was wonderful. Sand toys and a beach umbrella were provided as well as chairs to take out to watch the sunsets. There is a tap for rinsing sandy feet at the beach entrance, and a shower at the pool. Great for young children. The path leading to the beach is a bit awkward as the patio stones are wobbly and uneven. A bit of a challenge with a beach cart and baby. But we quickly figured it out. Just something that the condo corp. might consider fixing.

The condo was bright and clean. The balcony is on the side of the building which we liked. You can see the ocean, but mainly a view of palm trees and birds flying by. Front faces the street, but we never found the traffic noise to be a problem.

A few suggestions would be some hooks by the front door and perhaps in the bathrooms to hang things. Closet and drawer space was great.

If travelling with children you must try the Kooky Coconut for ice cream and PJ's Oyster Bar for dinner. We also enjoyed treats from the Cafe de Paris.

Busch Gardens was an easy day trip away. And the Little Toot dolphin cruise in Clearwater is a must.

We enjoyed our stay.....hope to return in the future.....
