About Vicky Olsen

We've always loved Sand Key and jumped at the chance to own a unit in beautifully maintained Lighthouse Towers. We love experiencing water views from all of the windows!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beachfront property is exceptional. The views off the lanai are wonderful including some georgous sunsets. The unit is very well equipped with comfortable sleeping for six adults, new kitchen, washer/dryer in the unit, two large flat screen TVs, wifi, and an abundance of bath towels and beach towels. This unit has virtually everything your own home would have so that staying here feels like home, but with a better view. The beach is beautiful for long walks and the shells are abundant. Each morning a new batch of shells are waiting for those shelling enthusiasts. The property has a nice pool, hot tub and tennis court. BBQ grills are available for your cookouts. The grounds are meticulously maintained and full time security is in place. This property is in a very quiet area of Clearwater Beach. A very relaxing place to vacation. Great restaurants and shops are close by. Busch Gardens (great roller coasters) and Seminole Hard Rock Casino are about an hour drive. Tampa International Airport is about 40 minutes, has a large cell phone lot and is easy access off the freeway. As important as any of the features of this condo is the owners were a joy to work with. Friendly, pleasant, great sense of humor and responded immediately to any phone call or email. They are genuinely interested in your having an exceptional vacation experience in their condo. I do not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone considering Clearwater Beach for their vacation.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

If you read the other reviews, I agree with all the positive statements. The condo was wonderfully maintained and well equipped. I appreciated the Keurig! And there was a regular coffee maker too. Every morning I sat on the balcony enjoying my coffee with the fantastic view in front of me. I won't repeat it all, just agree with the endorsement of the unit and the owners.

One comment, the condo is well managed and regulated - I felt within reason. The rules are reasonable and maintain an environment that my family appreciated. We enjoyed a few cook-outs at the pool with a great view and then a cool dip. The beach is quiet and the water wonderful. I would mention that this was my first time not the Gulf side of Florida and I was expecting the powdery sand everyone described. While we found this type of beach as we explored other parts of the coast, the beach in front of the condo is very "shelly" and we had to either wear shoes or be careful on walks. My boys said they couldn't run and play frisbee because of them. If you like to "shell," you'll be happy! The water was awesome and great for swimming and floating- I myself appreciated not being pounded by waves!

Enjoy!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review and helpful comments, Barbara. I totally agree with your comments about the beach. The wave action is gentle, but the sand is indeed 'shelly.' That's why I love exploring Florida--every beach is unique. We're so glad you visited our condo and hope you return.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two months on Sand Key at Lighthouse Towers. We have rented through VRBO many times before, but this has to be the best unit we have ever stayed in. The decor has been recently updated and many of the appliances and electronics were upgrades to what you would normally find. The unit was very clean and well supplied with everything you need to feel right at home. We especially liked the streamlined appearance of all the rooms - not cluttered with all of the “bric-a-brac” found in many other rentals.

The location is ideal, right on Sand Key beach and within walking distance of Clearwater Beach and all of its shops and restaurants. It is however hard to tear yourself away from the beautiful view which is right on your doorstep. Lighthouse Towers is well maintained and the other tenants are friendly and respectful of each other.

Vicky, the owner, was very approachable and flexible in addressing our needs. We definitely hope to return.

Will be Back!

  • 5 of 5

This property was great. The unit was very nice and very comfortable. Being able to communicate with the owner's was a great asset. The location of Lighthouse Towers was good also. Just far away from center city to enjoy the quiet and yet not too far from everything you need. We loved to hop from Clearwater to Indian Rocks for restaurants. Best of both worlds. We will be returning!

brilliant holiday, sure to return

  • 5 of 5

We viewed the condo on line and the photos and descriptions more than matched the facilities provided by the property.

The property was very clean and everything was provided (utensils/ equipment) to ensure a stress free holiday with sunsets to die for.

The booking process was easy, supported by the owner Vicky who provided guidance and advice on local restaurants, places to visit, shops etc. to ensure a terrific stay, try the nearby "Backwater" restaurant, terrific food and value for money and within easy walking distance from property. Thanks again Vicky !!

The pool and surrounding area was terrific with ample sun loungers.

We would have no hesitation returning to this property.

TWO BRITS ABROAD

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful condo: situated in a perfect spot - right on the beach! The location, Sand Key, is quiet and totally relaxing but for anyone wishing a slightly livelier spot Clearwater Beach is less than 10 minutes away by car or the regular trolley service from outside the condo will whisk you there in the same time without having to concern yourself with Clearwater's parking issues. Alternatively, if the temperature permits it's a delightful walk of about 30 minutes. As for the condo, it is tastefully furnished and comes with all the usual fixtures and fittings you would hope to find your rented holiday accommodation. Vicky's prompt email responses to my questions prior to our arrival were extremely helpful. There were just two of us staying at the condo but I am confident that four people would find the space and layout more than adequate. Based on our experience this condo is highly recommended.
