  • Sunwest Palms unit #301

    "Overall we really enjoyed our stay in your condo. There were a couple of issues( phone not working and pool hours not being respected by certain guests). Scott came over on Tuesday and the phone was repaired the next day. As for the pool, the people left a few days later. We did notice that condo rules were nt being respected by some. The mattress in the master bedroom is very soft and we had a lot of trouble to sleep and my wife's back problem was aggravated. The layout of the condo is great, lots of room. The wrap around balcony is wonderful, great views of the intercostal as well as the gulf. The proximity to the beach and the action is ideal. We enjoyed our 2 weeks!!"

  • First Time home Home Renters

    "We have always stayed at Condos… was one of the best finds of my husband. The boat is what sold us, the owner even hires a fishing guide who provided valuable techniques--Aand he caught fish as a result. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the afternoon watching the boats come down the canal after a day of fishing or sailing. The fully equipped kitchen, gas grill, and washer & dryer are an added benefit! Love the open concept of the living area. Just reserved the home again for next spring! "

  • Carolina Mountains to sunshine and sea

    "It was simply fabulous from the day we arrived to the day we had to leave. Theresa and Max are the greatest hosts. They attend to every need without delay and know each guest by name. Our one bedroom efficiency Mango Tango was perfect for us. Theresa met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know about the apartment complex. Our unit was well equipped and clean, neat, and no bugs. Sufficient hot water, linen's, beach chairs, umbrellas, and two very clean lush tropical pool areas. The other guest were friendly and we met many new friends. Our one request was just a comment in passing to Max and Theresa that we had a back ache sleeping on the mattress. They immediately tried to change out the mattress but there were none available so they went out and bought a new one for us. We were so thankful and very impressed. That was above and beyond anything we expected. Clearwater Beach was just voted the best beach in Florida. I just can't say enough about our stay except y'all come and stay for a spell but save us an apartment. Thanks so much Max and Theresa."

I would highly recommend the cuban restaurant at Sand Key call Columbia's. My son loved being able to fish right off the dock and the sunsets are gores from the top terrace. We fell in love!!! The Moores"

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?
