Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, Multiple Balconies Plus Amazing Roof Top Terrace With Sweeping Views

Quick note on Irma, we were fortunately not damaged by the storm.

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: In August of 2017, $35k 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.

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.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful spot very close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This house is very unique, with 5 levels and an elevator to help with accessibility. The rooftop terrace is great, with a big hot tub and an amazing 180 degree view of the intercoastal and the gulf. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms are very nice and there are 3 full bathrooms and two sets of laundry machines. The owner is very responsive with questions about the unit. Great location basically across the street from the beach and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay there again. Only negatives are the stairs if the elevator is in use or someone forgets to shut the doors, and the master, while beautiful and private, is a queen not a king. If you don't mind either one this is a great place.

Amazing condo in a great location with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the New Years weekend using the condo for our family reunion. The condo was very spacious with great amenities like a hot tub, roof deck with a grill, spacious common area, and comfortable beds and an elevator! The elevator was very helpful for my elderly mother especially since there's four floors. We were a short block from the beach and a nice walk away from the Pier. It was nice to be slightly further north away from the congested touristy area near the pier. The owner, George, was available if I had questions or issues and returned my texts immediately. Our only issues were at first getting the hot tub hotter. It was set on economy mode at 84 degrees and we tried everything the instructions said. George texted me instructions and I eventually got the hot tub temp to 100. The other issue was figuring out how to turn on the cable TV in the living room. I had to press numerous buttons to get the cable on. Everyone asked what I did and I couldn't tell them because I don't know how I got it turned on.... There was ten of us including children staying at the condo and my sisters family would come over and it was great cooking our meals, grilling, hanging out in the living room or roof deck. Lot's of space! This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend especially for a large group of 2-3 families. I think it was a great value and for the record we had no issues with the carpet or overall cleanliness!

Cool House in a fun neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed with a few friends to escape the cold. 1 block from the beach and plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. The house has three bedrooms split across 4 floors. Elevator is a lifesaver because the kitchen/entertainment area is on the fourth floor. Everything was clean and in good shape. Great TV in the living room. Views were incredible on the 5th floor hot tub area. Carpets were blue and could use replacing and the mirrors in the kitchen were strange and disorienting. All in all great place and would recommend. Owner was easy to work with and responded immediately to our concerns.

Good

  • 4 of 5

Over priced, old carpet. There were 2 sets of adults.

We loved the area, that is why we said loved it!

The rental was four stars. All TV’s should have cable connectivity already.

Owner's Response: Two of the six TV's were recently added to the property and only have wifi connected capabilities like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video. The TV's in the Living room, Master bedroom, Kids room and the terrace are all connected to cable. We have been finding that people are increasingly bringing their own online streaming accounts to the home to utilize rather than use the cable. We replace the carpet every two years. As you might imagine, in a marine environment the salt, sand and moisture wears out a carpet much faster than up North, but it is certainly not old. We have considered switching to a different type of floor covering for this reason, but have stuck with carpet for safety reasons. Smooth surfaces can be slick when wet, and especially for families with children, carpeted steps are best. The carpet is next due to be switched out in June of 2018, but most guests are pleased with the condition of the existing carpet.

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 Beach

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.
