Carlouel house description

Live like a native instead of a tourist! Enjoy all the pleasures and comfort of this spacious, clean and luxurious Keywest-style Beach House at America's #ONE ranked beach. A short stroll through dunes leads to white sandy beach and crystal clear water! Your family vacation will be everything you could desire.

This beach house has a funky atmosphere just made for FUN in the SUN! There is a quirky rainforest mural decor in the Great Room painted by a famous local artist. Banquet-size dining table makes for wonderful feasts. Tile floors and ceiling fans add to the island ambiance. Cathedral ceilings in Great Room and King Bedroom. Accents of pecky-cypress wood lend an authentic Old Florida flavor. Carlouel residential neighborhood is upscale, quiet and dog-friendly. Bring your friendly pet dog on the beach on a 6 ft. leash. Stroll the shoreline to Caladesi Island State Park!

Deck & Patio overlook dunes, palms, water and fabulous sunsets! Private sunbathing. Sip your favorite tropical drink as you watch the sun sink into the sea at days end. Grill dinner outdoors. Life is good in sunny Florida!

All nearby activities include fishing, boating, dinner cruises, parasailing, shopping and fine or casual dining. Walk 3 blocks to catch the beach trolley. Community swimming pool is seasonal (small fee). PIER 60 is a mile+ south and is where the action is at sundown--live music, large playground, arts & crafts vendors. Marina is across the street from Pier 60 and every type of boat ride is available--even a pirate ship! This home is for the nature-lovers and for those who seek relaxation and fun! If it is booked call as we also offer other beach houses very nearby to the beach!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: It is our 14th Year for Beach House rentals at Clearwater Beach, Florida! I have enjoyed meeting all our guests and am thrilled to welcome back many who return again and again. Giving the children and grandchildren a chance to frolic in the water and play in the sand has always been a thrill for me.

Why the Owner Chose Carlouel:
CLEARWATER BEACH, FL is a town that the only purpose is to have FUN! The beach has been ranked #ONE Best City Beach and connects to CALADESI ISLAND STATE PARK which was ranked #ONE Best Beach in America, 2008. The beach houses sit in a quiet, residential neighborhood which is between these two amazing places--you get all the 'action' and the 'beauty of a natural environment.' The Gulf of Mexico has beautiful clear water, gentle surf, gradual sloping bottom and the beach is wide with silky-soft white sand. There is a bench on the beach which says it all, 'HEAVEN ON EARTH' and I couldn't agree more!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our dream was to own a home at the beach. It was our lucky day when we bought this one at the best beach in America! All you could ask for--comfort, relaxation, fun, nature. Come enjoy it with your family!
