"What a gem! We couldn’t ask for a better vacation on a quiet stretch of Sand Key located just south of the hustle and bustle of Clearwater Beach. What a joy to wake up to such beautiful views of the Gulf and beach from the living room and bedroom. The Intercoastal Waterway is just across the highway out back. This condo is perfect for couples who enjoy morning or evening walks and quiet uncrowded days while relaxing on the beach. Having access and use of beach chairs, umbrellas, and barbecues was a big plus. We also enjoyed the great selection of area restaurants, an evening out to catch a baseball game, and a day long visit to Epcot's International Flower and Garden show. The condo was exactly as advertised, clean and well equipped. The grounds around the building were well landscaped, spotless, and very secure. Sue was helpful with any questions and prompt with all communication. We had a great two weeks and hope to make a return trip!"

"Each year we try to gather in all of our 6 offspring +a nephew & their crews for Grannie (that's me) Camp at our place in N.GA. Honestly, it's hard to accomplish w/ everyone's busy schedule. This year my oldest son wanted to take his crew to Disney World. So, okay. I'll find someplace in FL, Gulf side (because it is so beautiful). I needed a big place. WOW!!! Birds of Paradise (BoP) so exceeded the pics. 9 beds & 9 baths & plenty of space for littles (air mattresses & a pull out sofa in the middle house). NO, it is not as pristine as the photos. (the spa doesn't work: but who cares? the ocean calls!!) But, at its heart, it is SO very fantastic/magical. What memories we made! The 3 houses are in a line on the marina. Not in a U as the pics would lead you to think. Stuff we did:Hired a boat to pick up some us off the dock for cruising!!! BIG dock. Parasailing. Walking the beach bar crawling! BoP features multiple gathering places for late night owls and early morning larks. There is a great blue heron that visits every morning. Babies & Granddaddy could nap during the day:no problem. Others could party the sun up. Fishing off the dock. The pool is wonderful. Shallow enough for the littles and then the deep end for the tweens/teens. I swear I heard "Marco Polo" 12 zillion times!! A dozen+ poolside tables & umbrella! And when it comes to the ocean, the white sand beach is a short block walk away to the west and then a troop through the dunes. Sunset watching EVERY night. Our family likes to cook so the kitchen in the big house was a dream: double stove tops, double ovens, double microwaves, BIG subzero fridge & freezer PLUS a big-out-the-wazoo cooler & freezer off the kitchen w/ 2 double industrial sized washer & dryers. The big house is so spacious. We played bingo and Cranium and cards/coloring stuff strewn all over those wonderful rugs. And, yes, the piano was played, along w/ some guitar sing alongs. While I think BoP is more often used as a party site, it is the PERFECT place for a family party. It is so spread out w/ so many gathering places. The beds are comfy. There are grocery stores & bottle shops close by. The property manager set up us w/ a local photographer to take a group photo. Wonderful!! I brought an extra fold out table (there were a lot of us!) and I wish I had brought my favorite paring knife. Other than that, BoP provides paper towels, TP, garbage bags (pick up 2x a week) and a multitude of pots&pans in the big house. 5 stars"

"This beach house was more than we expected and the pictures do not do it justice. The home is beautifully updated, exceptionally clean and well maintained. We enjoyed each night along with the beach nearly out the front door. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a beach house!"
