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.

Absolutely Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This unit was lovely - the location on Sand Key is just where you want to be: close to Clearwater Beach but far enough away to have privacy and a large open beach. The condo building is very well maintained - I appreciated seeing folks working through the time period I was there keeping it clean. The pool is lovely and any easy walk from the unit and beach. The two bedroom unit is spacious and very up to date. It has all the "essentials" necessary to make the stay easy... from coffee makers to cooking utensils to a full size washer and dryer. Vicky was lovely to work with and very flexible and gracious when I asked to extend my stay. I would highly recommend this unit/rental.

Super Clean, Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just perfect for our family of 5. It was very clean and had an amazing view. Everything you could need was provided. Vickey our host always answered our texts or calls right away. I would recommend staying here for sure. It is 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Clearwater Beach but very private and extremely quite!

After many VRBO rentals, it was by far the best experience we've had!

  • 5 of 5

We can't thank Vicky and Scott enough for sharing their condo on Clearwater Beach with us! Where to begin? Our last two days were when Hurricane Matthew was brewing on the east coast and Vicky kept in contact to be sure we were happy and OK on the west coast. She even offered to work with us if there were any issues or concerns with our flight home. That was really impressive to us and our only disappointment came from not being able to meet her and Scott in person! They truly care about providing a wonderful experience in their condo and go way out of there way to be sure that that happens. Very much appreciated! The condo is very clean, beautifully decorated and there wasn't one thing we had to buy to make it our "home away from home" for 2 weeks. Cable, wifi all the amenities of home. The view is spectacular and you can watch the sunrise/sunset right from the balcony! The security and cleanliness of the complex public grounds and surrounding areas was perfect and we were comfortable being out at night. A short walk across to stores and restaurants or a quick trolley ride to Pier 60. What more could you ask for? I would highly recommend you renting this condo and want to thank Vicky and Scott again for a most enjoyable time! John and Kathy :)

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.
