  • Beautiful Gulf Beach House-Don't Miss It!!!

    "My family of four (two kids, 8 and 11) have stayed at this wonderful beach house multiple times, and have always been thrilled! First of all, you have SPACE galore on three floors, which allows for maximum room and privacy for everyone. Secondly, the house is well-equipped with everything you need to enjoy your vacation, including beach toys, wagon, chairs, umbrella, towels, etc.! Thirdly, you can open your Master Bedroom door or Family Room door onto balconies which face the Gulf and have stunning views of the beach. The beach cannot be beaten for fewer crowds and lovely white sand, making it more relaxing than other nearby locations. Finally, there is a plunge-pool for cooling off after a day on the beach. Busch Gardens are close-by in Tampa, and Disney can be reached in about 1 1/2 hours or so. We would all highly recommend this rental!"

  • BEST FAMILY VACATION YET!!

    "This property was GREAT, it was a shared building with a pizza place in front and a rental unit off the back which we werent sure about but rest assured it turned out perfect, you didnt even notice they were there. The location couldnt have been much better it is literally steps from the beach, a short walk and you have gone thru downtown and are at the Pier. We have my husband and myself, two 6 year old twins, a 16 and a 17 year old and 2 large dogs and this home was perfect for us (and affordable). There is honestly nothing but good things to say about it, we did NOT want to leave and have decided to make a tradition of going back to the same place that gave us such great memories. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay here, see you next year! (;"

  • Wonderful Beach Vacation

    "This is a great location and an awesome condo. We had a wonderful beach vacation. Being directly on the beach is the way to go. Everything is provided for your days on the beach, from chairs, towels, blankets, toys for the kids and even bags to carry the stuff in. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to cook a meal (except food of course, though they do have some spices, sugar, salt and pepper, and stuff like that). Not that we did a bunch of cooking but usually had breakfast and simple meals like hot dogs and things for the kids. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the water while drinking coffee in the morning always makes the day better. We traveled with a 1 and 3 year old and at night they have pretty much every Disney movie available (they are on VHS but they do have a blu-ray/dvd player if you have your own movies). So they were entertained with no issues. Also a crib and high chair were all setup and ready for us when we got there. Also what is nice the parking lot is under the condo so it is covered if it rains. Clearwater beach is a very nice location. We could walk down to the pier at night and they have all kinds shows and people selling crafts, it's a lot like Mallory square in Key West if you have ever been there. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, we went to Cooters, Palm Pavillion, Frenchys, and Tan's Chinese. All were very good and I would recommend. We also made day trips to Weeki Wachee (about 1 hour away), Legoland (about 1.5 hours away) and the Florida Aquarium (about 30 min). We can't wait to go 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. Take a lovely stroll down a trail as you admire the stunning natural beauty all around you. There's also a grilling and pavilion area, so after exploring the trails you can enjoy a delicious meal al fresco.

- Sunsets at Pier 60: Enjoy Clearwater Beach like a local and take in Sunsets at Pier 60. This event runs seven days a week - weather permitting - from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Join in the nightly festivities as you watch the breathtaking sunset over the water. The celebration is free and perfect for families. You'll find artisans, musical entertainment, crafters and street performers here, or you can check out a film screening Friday or Saturday night with popcorn and drinks. Grab a blanket or some lawn chairs and watch a movie under the stars.

Dining in Clearwater Beach

- The Brown Boxer Pub & Grille: Dining out is always a treat on vacation, and The Brown Boxer is considered the premiere sports bar and grille in the Tampa Bay area with its full bar, great menu and tons of entertainment. In 2013, it was voted Reader's Choice for Top Bar and one of the Top 25 Bars in the area by its customers. You can be sure you're getting your money's worth here! Try the mussels, coconut shrimp, ahi tuna, chicken fried chicken or rib eye, and be sure to save room for dessert!

- Clear Sky Beachside Cafe: It'll be a pleasure to dine while taking in views of the water at Clear Sky Beachside Cafe, which is known by natives for having tasty gourmet food without the expensive price tag. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner here, so you can start your day with a hearty meal to keep your energy up as you explore the city or stop in when you need to refuel.
