              Other Amenities

                  • Yes, our beach house is right on the sandy beach! Our backyard includes the white sand and the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, there are also palm trees, tropical flowers, butterflies, birds, and occasionally turtles and dolphins. Stroll south along the beach and you will reach the main Clearwater Beach (with lots of hotels, restaurants and tourists). If you prefer quietness, walk or kayak north to the 100% natural Caladesi Island (Caladesi Island is now connected to the Clearwater Beach Island due to shifting sand). Caladesi Island was voted #1 Beach in the U.S. in 2008. Only several years ago, the only way to access this unspoiled and uninhabited island is through boats. Today, you can walk there from our house. Finally, our guests constantly told us that their #1 favorite thing to do is to relax at rooftop patio in the evening for dinners while watching the breathtaking sunset.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We take pride in keeping our beach front home clean and making it as welcoming as possible.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carlouel:
                  Clearwater Beach has been voted one of the top beaches in the US year after year. Our house is located right on the beach in the quieter north end. No street parking is allowed to ensure quietness and security.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                  Located on the quieter part of the beach yet within walking distance or short trolley ride to the excitement of Pier 59, Beach Walk and the main beach. Exploring the Caladesi Island state park is easier than ever now that the Caladesi Island and the Clearwater Beach Island are linked together by a shift in the ocean sand.
