We were so pleased with the condo and the ocean view. The condo was very nice and really decorated very nicely. I would like to come back again.

A Wonderful Family Vacation in a Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying at Maria's condo for two weeks in May 2018. Maria was a pleasure to work with and we communicated with her several times by Home Away messaging and by phone. She checked on us after we arrived to make sure that all was well.

Having traveled to the Clearwater area on numerous occasions, we were happy to find Maria's clean and well-kept condo for 4 adults and one child. Everything that we needed for cooking and cleaning was included within the apartment. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was also a feature that helped us. Even very comfortable beach chairs were available in her storage area. This made for pleasant days in the sun and helped us avoid the cost of renting beach loungers and umbrellas that were available in front of the condo.

Every vacation that we have taken to Florida has been beachfront, so Maria's long balcony on the beach with access from the living-room and master bedroom was a big hit for us. The long, comfortable sectional unit was perfect for the needs of our family. The pool and gulf waters were wonderful. We were even able to grill steaks on the barbecues provided on the beach side of the building.

Having spent many March Breaks in the Clearwater Beach area as a child, my son was happy to introduce the area to his wife and young son. They absolutely loved this vacation and so did we! The two were even able to walk down to Crabby Bill's one evening for some private time while grandma and grandpa stayed home with the little one. We took advantage of all the great seafood restaurants, outlet shopping and other activities in the area.

We would love to return to the area again some day and Maria's condo would be our first choice due to its location, the reasonable price and the fact that it has been renovated and is so well-kept.

Fabulous condo with breath-taking view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Maria's condo the week of Thanksgiving (husband, 15 yr old son, 11 year old daughter and mother-in-law). It had everything you could ask for, was extremely clean and felt like home. The beds were so comfortable. The pool and hot tub were never crowded (unlike SandCastle II next door which was a zoo). I was impressed by the stocked kitchen in terms of cookware. Food network, Cuisinart, not cheapy stuff. I did buy a crock pot that I left there. There's nothing better than throwing your dinner in, spending the day at the beach and coming up to your dinner being ready. (Easiest dinner ever - throw in frozen chicken breasts, a jar of black bean and corn salsa, cook on low for 6 hours or so, shred = chicken tacos). The 3 beach chairs were great to have and there were plenty of beach and bath towels. The dryer does take a long time to dry and the dishwasher doesn't get everything clean (pre-rinse!) but those are very minor complaints. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Katie thank you for your nice review, we are happy that you felt at home in our condo. We will check into the dishwasher and dryer issues, although the Bosch washer and dryer are new. Maybe you used the towel setting which takes much longer than the regular setting. Again we appreciate your review very much. Maria
