This amazing home is located one block from the beach and within easy walking distance of everything you will want to do in Clearwater Beach. The home offers you privacy and flexibility in putting together your own personalized experience at the beach, whether that involves cooking in or dining out, walking or driving. You work hard, so why not have your vacation exactly the way you want it? This condo is perfect for the whole family and is located in North Clearwater Beach where the crowds thin out, but you are still easy walking distance to everything.
Note: Within the last year $45k of upgrades and enhancements were made to the property including all new furniture, bedding, TV's and the addition of a 4th bedroom and bathroom. In April 2018, all flooring was replaced. New carpet on the steps and landings and the bedrooms were upgraded to high end laminate.
This recently constructed home is 5 stories. The first floor has a garage, laundry as well as storage for beach toys and bicycles. To go up to the living areas, you can either take the stairs or the private elevator. The entire second floor is the private master suite and master bath. For large families, the master bedroom comes with a twin sofa bed with new foam sleeper mattress. The master also has its own private balcony, perfect for sipping coffee in the morning. The master bathroom is enormous and features a two-person jacuzzi tub and separate tiled shower with dual rain shower heads. You will feel completely spoiled in the master suite. The vanity is granite with double bowls and the toilet area is separate and has its own door. The walk in closet is enormous and is where the pack-n-play is stored. The third floor has two bedrooms, another set of laundry machines and a shared jack and jill bathroom with separate vanity. The front bedroom features pyramid bunks as well a twin over full futon bunk set up. This room will sleep up to 6. The rear bedroom has an additional queen bed with it's own private balcony, perfect for a guest couple. There is an additional queen bedroom on the first floor with a private full bath and rear entrance. The fourth floor has the kitchen and living area. You will find two balconies here, one on the gulf side, one on the intracoastal side, allowing for gentle breezes to pass through the home. The sofa is a queen pull-out with a memory foam mattress. The kitchen is comprehensively furnished and features stainless appliances as well as granite countertops. We have a coffee maker, a Keurig machine, two blenders, toaster, crock pot, both stainless, and non-stick pots, pans, and kitchen hardware you would expect in any fully-equipped home. The living room has new furniture (Aug, 2017). The living room has a child gate at the stairs for little ones. There are additional child pressure gates in the garage for any other floors/rooms desired. There is cable and 150Mbps standard and 5G wifi throughout the home and although you'll probably find lots of other things to do, if you want to catch the game, you can do so on your choice of five flat screen televisions located throughout the home ranging from the master up to the wet bar on the terrace. The living room entertainment system features a 65" 4K LED LCD with Smart features. There is a TV on the terrace, as well as a Bluetooth stereo system. Both the fourth and fifth floors have recently installed bluetooth audio systems for connecting your mobile play lists with the home's audio.
The garage is fully equipped with beach stuff, carts, and a mountain bike. There are umbrellas, boogie boards, rafts and various beach toys. A beach cart will take this all to the beach and back and has a small cooler built in for lunch, drinks or snacks. Beach towels are provided. For families with young children, there is a high chair, toddler booster seat, and pack-n-play. All linens, bath and beach towels are included with your stay, there are no up-charges for these items.
Entry to the unit is via a resort lock door mechanism that provides you with a custom code during your dates/times of stay. This means that you can arrive and depart at any time without arranging to meet for your keys. Check in time is 4:00 p.m. and check out is at 11:00 a.m. Exceptions can be arranged if there are no parties departing or arriving on your dates of arrival or departure. If available, there is no charge for early check-in or late departure, however, no guarantee can be made for this until within 3 weeks of your stay.
There are 8 units in the building, however, ours is the only unit that features the living area on the 4th floor. That is important for a few reasons. First, the view is far better from the living area than from the other units. Second, you are one floor away from the best feature of the property, the roof top terrace. Upstairs on the roof, you will find a tremendous entertainment area five stories above it all complete with hot tub, stainless counter height dining area on the gulf side of the home for 4 to enjoy the sunsets, new wicker patio furniture, wet bar with granite counter top, cable TV and Bluetooth speakers, gas grill and a separate table and dining area for 6. The terrace is capable of hosting both great parties and quiet evenings enjoying the sunset, or the panoramic views of the Gulf to the Intracoastal. So from an entertainment perspective, the forth and fifth floors become the heartbeat of this home. And of course, with a terrace like this, you will undoubtedly spend most of your time up here, cooking, soaking up the rays, enjoying the hot tub and the view.
I take quality seriously. I am in the property management business, however, this is my personal beach home and my goal is to provide you with a home that feels like it is your beach home. I am available via text 24/7 to help customize your experience the way that you deserve. If you want to vacation in a million dollar beach home without spending a million dollars, then this is your place. I am confident that you will enjoy your stay.

About George Crist
Hi! I've been using home sharing sites for about seven years now and am a strong believer in the business, but more importantly, the idea that mutually respectful people can build community through home sharing. My partner in life, Sara and I are in the property management biz and I love to travel, and so we have a good sense of what you're expecting when you visit one of our properties. Your experience is very important to us and we are available at all steps of the rental process whenever communication is needed. If you look at our map, you'll see we span the east coast. We offer amazing vacation homes in Florida and Maine. I have warm and wonderful people who help me manage those properties locally so there is always someone nearby. We also love to travel and experience home sharing from the other side as the traveller. We are always looking for enhancements that we can bring to our properties. Our rental portfolio is a large part of our income and we are active managers of this portfolio. I guess this is to say that I am not a "passive" vacation home owner who is just looking for some easy money back on an investment. We believe in a high level of customer service and a five star experience by every guest, in every property, every time. Thank you for considering our properties and home sharing as a more personal alternative to the traditional hotel.
George Crist purchased this Condo in 2015
Why George Crist chose Clearwater
I have been coming to Clearwater Beach as a vacation destination for 15 years. The reason is that Clearwater Beach is simply one of the nicest beaches in the world. The surf is safe for young kids and there is always something new to see and explore. We have stayed in many places from 880 Mandalay down to the other end of Clearwater Beach and our location, we feel is the best. First, the beach is right there. But unlike locations closer to the pier, we are just far enough away that the crowds thin out a little and so you don't need to be on the beach at 6:00 a.m. to find yourself a prime piece of sand. Second, we are steps from more restaurants than you can possibly enjoy on a seven day vacation, including some of the more popular beach restaurants like Frenchy's and the Palm Pavilion. We have a CVS a block away for little incidentals, and easy to navigate public transportation is available to take you to the grocery store. Public docks for charter boats and day boats are a few blocks away if you like catching fish. Or if you just like observing them, there is a certain dolphin with a prosthetic tail nearby as well (sorry not a fish, but had to transition that somehow). The point of all of this is, you could literally skip the rental car and save yourself $500. Everything you will need or want during your stay is easy walking distance from the home.
What makes this Condo unique
Our development, Park Place, has eight units in a row. Ours is the end-unit, which means that you have unobstructed views all around. It possesses, by far, the best views in the building. The original owners also made the brilliant move of putting the living area up on the 4th floor. The result is that the terrace becomes an extension of the living room since it's just up one flight of stairs (as opposed to 3 like the other units). If you're grilling, for example, while boiling corn on the stove, do you really want to run up and down three flights of stairs every time you want to check on something? Also, ours is the only unit to possess a true fourth bedroom and full three bathrooms. If you are hosting larger groups, our home is hands down superiorly equipped and furnished. In August of 2017, we upgraded everything. All of the TV's are now LED Smart TV's so you can enjoy the same shows you do at home. All of the bedding and mattresses are new. The living room and dining room furniture are also brand new. We spent over $35,000 to update the property in order to create an experience that exceeds guest expectations. You will not be disappointed with any aspect of your stay with us.

Great location and spacious property
We loved our stay. The beach is literally just a block away. Beautiful rooftop deck with hot tub, barbeque and gathering area. Great views of the water! We'll be back again!
Great place for family vacation
All the essentials of home! Plenty of space for 3 families when privacy is needed. Location was great for stores, restaurants, and especially the beach! We highly recommend to stay here!
Perfect location for beach, dining and entertainment!
My husband and I just spent a wonderful week staying in this home! The privacy of having each bedroom and bathroom on its own level was awesome! We had our two married daughters and their husbands staying with us as well as two grandchildren. Having our own space to retreat to after busy days at the beach was priceless. Soaking in the hot tub on the roof watching the sunset each night was an added bonus! The unit was furnished nicely and was well equipped with everything you would need including beach chairs, umbrellas and a cart to lug it all to the beach! The elevator was so helpful when we arrived with our luggage and groceries! We would definitely stay here again...thank you George!
Great location and Fantastic views from the roof!
My family really enjoyed our stay! The only thing negative is that the living/kitchen area is a little small for the 12 to 13 people we had staying with us. But the rest of the house more than made up for that! The roof with the hot tub and views were amazing! The elevator was a blessing for my mom (and the younger folks after a long day at the beach) who would not have been able to join us without it! Highly recommend and would love to rent again!
Awsome place to stay!
Our 6 night stay could not have been better. We were vacationing with our children and grandchildren. We loved the 5 stories. It gave everyone some space if they needed it. We spent a lot of time on the roof top talking, laughing, hot tubbing and making memories. Amazing view! Pretty much every day was spent at the beach right across the road with dining & drinks at the Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar which was also across the road. Speedway and Food Mart within a block from Condo. Especially loved our family walks to pier 60 each evening. Play ground handy right out front. Condo was clean and had the most comfortable mattresses. Amazing stay for sure!!! Thank You, George Crist!
This property was exactly like the pictures. Beautiful location, spacious rooftop with great views, walking distance to the beach and a number of great bars and restaurants be plenty of space for 8 of us for a long weekend. Would absolutely recommend George and this condo and will likely rent again myself! Do yourself a favor!
