Overview

Sand Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

We're right on very quiet section of Sand Key Beach.

LHT-1204

AMAZING 12th FLOOR VIEWS.

This property is part of our Dolphin Watch Collection of luxury beachfront condos--all FIVE-STAR RATED. We currently have three units available for rent/lease. All are well outfitted; extremely clean, beautifully maintained and tastefully decorated.

They all have maximum direct window/balcony exposure to the Gulf of Mexico for the best views on Sand Key. Spectacular water views from every window.

Each unit is completely 'Vacation Ready' includes at least the following: washer & dryer; fresh bed linens; fluffy bath towels; beach towels; beach chairs, beach umbrellas, picnic coolers, beach cart, boogie boards; complete kitchen and dining items, etc. We even provide a few lightweight jackets if you need them for cool evenings so that you can pack light if you're flying.

Looking for something to do while in town??? Ask us about Dolphin Watch Charters. It will be the highlight of your vacation.

How much have you been quoted elsewhere? We will beat the rate for any comparable accommodations. Our goal is to provide better accommodations at better prices than anywhere else on the beach. We welcome and appreciate the opportunity to serve you.

Always check with us before your arrival to see if we can provide you with a free upgrade.

Here are just a few of the comments we've received:

'Disney is less than two hours away, but one does not need to travel there to experience magic. We felt it just stepping into this beautiful condo! ... Our only regret is not booking for next year when given the opportunity! As they say, he who hesitates is lost.'

'No matter how amazing the places are that we've traveled or the hotels we've stayed in, I usually can't wait to get home to my own bed and bathroom. This time, I never wanted to leave this place!'

'The condo is sparkling clean, contemporary, well appointed and has everything you need to enjoy a stay.'

'The unit is beautifully decorated, well thought out and spotlessly clean!!! '

LHT-907 (vrbo #411807) is our flagship of the collection at 1450 square feet with two bedrooms and two full baths. The grande master suite is gorgeous.

LHT-1206 (vrbo #556556) Totally and completely updated in 2012; two bedroom; two full bath unit with a beautifully outfitted kitchen, dining room and living room.

LHT-1204 (vrbo #509660) is the very convenient neighbor to LHT-1206. If you have a large group or just need more space, these two units are perfect for each other when rented together.

We also have three different handy/maintenance men on call should you need them during your stay. Twenty four hour gatehouse and security, too.

Sand Key is a great place to vacation ANY time of the year. The average high during the hotest season is 90F with Gulf breezes, the surf and a refreshing pool to keep you cool (air conditioning too of course). Average temperatures in the depths of winter are only about 35F cooler. Clear skies and Florida sunshine keep you nice and warm all day long. It is highly unlikely that you will ever need to turn on the heat even at night.

Lighthouse Towers is the only highrise development we know of on Sand Key that has full sun on the pool area ALL DAY LONG .

--Huge master bedroom with 12 foot wide floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that open to your private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico; incredibly comfortable king size bed; flat panel TV; Cable; blue ray player; generous walk-in closet and an abundance of dresser drawers. The gel-foam mattress feels like you're sleeping on a cloud.

--Master bath with twin sinks; Separate shower and a Roman tub with a wonderful view of the Gulf

--Guest bedroom with incredibly comfortable queen-size bed; walk-in closet; reading area and exciting harbor/intercoastal views

--Updated kitchen with breakfast bar; deep sink; large frig; ice maker; range; oven; pantry and all the kitchen/dining utensils you'll need.

--Gathering room (living/dining) has a large flat panel TV; DVD player; 12 foot wide floor to ceiling sliding glass wall that open to a fully furnished balcony and wonderful views of the Gulf and the most spectacular sunsets you'll see anywhere.

--Warm yourself in the morning sun and enjoy a cup of coffee on the East (harbor-side) balcony. At the end of the day open a nice bottle of wine and enjoy incredible sunsets with wonderful Gulf breezes on our West (Gulf-side) balcony.

BRING YOUR SAILBOAT ! The Clearwater Community Sailing Center is just a stroll down the street and offers storage for sailboats up to 23 feet.

Not much need for a car since the trolly on Gulf Blvd runs about every 10-15 minutes. It will take you south about 20 miles to St. Pete Beach; north to Clearwater Beach and over to downtown Clearwater. Plenty of fine restuarants; attractions and shopping all along the way (a Supermarket too!)

There is always something going on... music festivals; baseball; off shore racing; live theater; sea turtles nesting*; sea turtles hatching*; dolphins playing*; volleyball*; tournaments; excursions; jet ski; sailing*; regattas*; kayaking; pirate ship; para-sailing*; surfing*; windsurfing*; kite-surfing*; shopping and much much more. (*very entertaining and visible from the western balcony)

Can we book your reservation today? If so, please be aware that there are NO CONVENIENCE, PROCESSING OR SERVICE FEES WHEN YOU PAY BY CHECK IN FULL DIRECTLY TO THE OWNER.

Please note that the rates for all of our beachfront vacation properties are based on double or triple occupancy and payment by check. Additional charges are applied for larger parties and other forms of payment (up to 4.5% depending on your bank) .

Why Lee Vincent chose Clearwater Area

We've traveled the world and the best place by far for sun, fun and just quiet relaxation is Lighthouse Towers of Sand Key Beach (1 mile south of Clearwater Beach and a nice beachwalk to Clearwater Pass). Overall, one of the best beach areas in the world! (and yes... we've been to Rio, Ipanema, Mykonos, Santorini, Corfu, Rhodes, Ios, Cancun, Cozumel, St. Maarten/St. Martin, St. Thomas, Grand Cayman, Maui, Honolulu, Oahu, Malibu and a few others)

What makes this condo unique

marina, cabana, dinner cruise, site seeing, astronomy, sun bathing, dolphin watching from the balcony, Parasailing, Waverunners, Sailboat Rentals across the street, Jet Skis, Surf Fishing, Fishing Excursions, Beautiful and Economical Golf Courses nearby

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello, Lee! I just wanted to tell you all - we rented a different condo this summer just because yours were rented out. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! We missed your condo so much this year and can't wait to be back to it next year. We are planning a July vacation for 2017 - hope we snag the dates ASAP :o) Thanks so much for setting the bar so high for condos - we can't wait to be back.

Nice property, but not "child friendly"

  • 3 of 5

We just got back from the property. It was as nice as viewed online. However, we told the owner that we were bringing our young grandchild with us, and we were not told that children wearing "swimmies" we're not allowed in the pool. We had our 2 year old granddaughter at the pool for about 20 minutes, and a group of older residents evidently complained to the maintenance people, and we were asked to leave the pool area. Very disappointing! Swimming is one of the reasons people go on vacation to Florida. The beach was a mess from hurricane Hermine, and the pool was all we really had for her to use.

The other problem was that the owner was on vacation when we got there. Thank goodness the gate staff had a phone number that he happened to answer, for he did not give us the unit number or how to access the unit until we spoke with him. The phone number on the VRBO website went straight to voicemail. This could have been a big disaster if he was not able to be reached!

Owner's Response: We have never received anything less than a five star rating, so I'm not quite sure how to respond to this but I'll try by just stating the facts and adding "I'm sorry." First of all we make every effort to greet all of our guests at the gate upon their arrival. Unfortunately, that was not possible in this case. I'm sorry. My phone number is on the website and all over the paperwork. I make every effort to answer the phone whenever it rings (sometimes in the middle of the night). The unit number is all over the website and paperwork also. We encourage all of our guests (in writing) to call a day or two ahead to go over check in, door codes, etc. We were hoping you would call at your convenience. Now I wish I would have called you instead--I'm sorry I didn't. Though we are almost always able to get people checked in early, we would like to know ahead of time so that we can at least make ourselves available by phone if not in person. I had no idea what time they were planning on checking in and happened to be on a plane at the time. I'm sorry. However, I did call back about an hour later, which was still prior to the designated check in time. I'm sorry I was not available when you called. We always encourage all of our guest to call whenever they have questions or need assistance. We enjoy talking to all of our guests whenever possible. We talk about things to do, places to eat, shop, etc. Unfortunately, I have no idea who is potty trained and who is not. I'm sorry. I wish there was something I could do at this point beside say that "I'm sorry."

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

In 2015, I rented a condo from Lee Vincent just a couple doors down. In January 2015, I rented 1204, a one bedroom. The condo is awesome. It has a king bed in the bedroom and a pullout couch. The kitchen is very well equipped -- I cooked a full turkey dinner for my family and didn't run out of dishes or accessories. The photos very accurately show what you get. The most impressive thing for me is the view. A wall of windows (that open) and a balcony to have coffee or dinner on. This condo has a beautiful view and the location is close enough to Clearwater Beach to be part of the action when you want to be. This building is very well maintained and very secure. The Vincents are wonderful hosts. The only thing keeping me from renting next year is that I need February -- and, that month is already gone.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My 7 year old son and I stayed at this apartment for 5 weeks this summer.

The apartment has the most spectacular view of the Gulf which is just steps from the building. The pool area is clean and well maintained. The apartment is very comfortable, secure and everyone including the owner were very helpful. I loved how this apartment is in a quiet area, but Clearwater Beach is just minutes away. The Jolley Trolly was a great way to get around. I was surprised how much there is to do in this area. Everything felt very easy and convenient.

The apartment comes with everything one could possible need as well as mountains of stuff for the beach. I do feel that if anything there is too much stuff and perhaps the owners would be wise to weed through the kitchen, for example, and get rid of some things that seem to have been left behind by previous guests.

We had a fabulous vacation!

Perfect place to stay for a destination wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever! The condo was better than expected with wonderful views and all the conveniences of home. It was conveniently located close to all the places we wanted to go. It was a short walk for lunch and or dinner or even a beverage by the bay. The pool was relaxing and the beach was wonderful. The only problem we had was that it ended too soon. Hope to be back again next year. Thanks for everything!

awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful and available for any questions/problems (we had no problems). Property in great location, just 5 minutes from Clearwater Beach and on Sand Key. Private beach was never crowded and often empty. Stores and good restaurants are a 5 minute walk away. The condo was very comfortable, filled with natural light and had the most awesome views of the gulf, the beach, sunsets. We stayed on the 12th floor and loved how far we could see. Also had great view of the intercoastal waterway and sunrise just outside the front door. The condo had everything we needed: plenty of towels, dishes, kitchen items, high speed internet, washer/dryer and was very roomy for a one bedroom. It was also decorated in very pleasant and contemporary decor. Would definitely go back in a heartbeat!
