Recent Clearwater Beach property reviews

  • We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!

    "Scott is a wonderful person to rent from. He was informative and accommodating. Our large group enjoyed the spacious house and pool. The guys and kids fished from the dock in the backyard nearly everyday and also had the great experience of seeing two manatees within feet of the dock! The private beach is very close and we even got to swim with the wild dolphins that come by each day. We rented a boat and went to a sandbar where we collected beautiful shells and enjoyed the white sand. This rental is close enough to all of the major attractions of Clearwater and Tampa but far enough away that we could relax away from the hustle and bustle of the busy towns. The home is very clean and had everything we needed for the week. Overall, our family had a wonderful vacation and would recommend this rental in a heartbeat!"

  • Perfect home for the family on Clearwater Beach

    "Perfect home for the whole family. we travelled for 1 full day before making it to Clearwater beach, and when we did we were welcomed by friendly staff at the checkin point before proceeding to the home. once we got there we were shocked, huge bedrooms, king beds in every room! Tv's in every room! and the views on the gulf of Mexico were stunning. I would recommend this rental home to anyone. this home made our vacation."

  • Spectacular!!!!!!

    "This was our third time staying at the Mandalay Beach Club and there is no question that this gulf front unit is the most attractive and comfortable unit that we have stayed at. This unit is pretty special! We enjoyed all the amenities; marble flooring, the spacious floor plan, fabulous sunsets and views from the balcony, the upgraded TV and wi-fi package, and a few short steps to access the beautiful Clearwater Beach. Jason, the owner, is a pleasure to work with and readily responds to any concerns or questions you might have. I might add, we had no problems, from start to finish. We have already made plans to come back."

Clearwater Beach Travel Tips

If your perfect vacation includes digging your toes in the sand, perfecting your tan under the warm sun, swimming and playing in the ocean and watching stunning sunsets over the water, then it's time to book your next getaway to Clearwater Beach. This Florida hotspot is a favorite beach destination, and with good reason. Sandy beaches are idyllic spots to relax, but you're close enough to bigger cities like Tampa and St. Petersburg that you can enjoy that hustle and bustle as well.

While the shores are certainly a huge draw there, there's so much more to experience in Clearwater Beach. You're sure to appreciate the laid-back atmosphere here as you explore the fun, cultural attractions and sample the local flavors at the variety of awesome eateries. If you're not convinced, Clearwater Beach has been awarded a variety of achievements, including TripAdvisor's Travelers Choice Awards Best Beaches in 2011 and Washington Family Magazine Readers' Choice for Best Beaches for Families 2012.

Things to Do in Clearwater Beach

- Clearwater Marine Museum: Animals lovers, especially those with a soft spot for marine life, won't want to miss out on the Clearwater Marine Museum. It's dedicated to caring for injured animals, providing them with rescue and rehabilitation, and then releasing them back into their natural habitat. The museum is home to all sorts of wildlife including river otters, bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, stingrays, sharks and a whole host of colorful fish. Creatures with serious injuries become permanent residents here, and the most well-known is Winter, a bottlenose dolphin rescued in 2005 after her tail got caught in a crab trap. Her injuries were very extensive, so was given a prosthetic tail, and her story was turned into a movie titled "Dolphin Tale" in 2011. After a trip the the museum, your family can rent the movie and learn even more about Winter!

- Early Bird Dinner Theatre: For a fun and unique night out head to Ed Fletcher's Early Bird Dinner Theatre where you can see a live, professional performance while enjoying a buffet dinner. Not only do you get to experience great entertainment, but you get to dine on a delicious meal while you do so. What could be better? The 2014 season includes "Lend Me a Tenor," "A Bad Year For Tomatoes," "Cookin' With Gas" and "Greater Tuna."

- Moccasin Lake Nature Park: With Clearwater's awesome climate, spending time outdoors is a must. Nature enthusiasts should head to Moccasin Lake Nature Park, where you can observe native plants and animals, including rescued and rehabbed birds, fish and reptiles as well as plant and energy exhibits.
