Property description

The Serendipity House is a two bedroom, two bath house with a king size bed in one bedroom and trundle bed in the 2nd bedroom. There is also a queen size sleeper sofa in the living area. The Serendipity House is an older, quaint, charming 'last of its kind' on Clearwater Beach. The favorite feature of the house is the large wrap-around front porch, with ceiling fans, rocking chairs, and tables. The front porch is a wonderful place for the entire family to sit and relax after a day at the beach, and enjoy the gulf breezes and gulf views! The Serendipity House has recently been remodeled and all appliances and furniture are new. Leather couches, flat screen cable TV, beach supplies, laundry facilities and plenty of parking make this an ideal home on the beach. The location is ideal - only about 75 steps to the beach, and close enough to walk to restaurants, shopping and pier. Come and stay in paradise and experience a feel of Key West in Clearwater.

Why Private Homes:
The Serendipity House was built in the late 1920's. The house has a wonderful, large wrap-around front porch where you will want to spend all of your time rocking in rocking chairs, drinking sweet tea and enjoying a bit of charming old Florida at its best. The Serendipity House is fully remodeled and updated.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great old english style garden home with large wrap-around covered front porch with awesome views of the white sugar sand of Clearwater Beach. Recently renovated inside & out, the Serendipity offers comfortable living with the convenience of beach activities, shopping and dining. After a fun filled day at the beach grab a cold beverage and sit in a rocker on the front porch and enjoy the tropical gulf breeze.
