Guestbook comments from the owner


I got a request from Home Away for a review, but I am blocked from submitting it.

"Worked great for us - 2 parents, 2 grandparents, and 3 kids. Lots of individual spaces and good shared space. Kids loved the heated pool and beach was less than a five minute walk. Very clean and well maintained. I would recommend it except I don't want to compete with you for my next reservation. 5 stars."

Sorry I can't get this through.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My multigenerational family thoroughly enjoyed our week at Mandalay Pool House. Perfection! The interior has fun wall colors and a beach themed decor. The kitchen is stocked with enough cooking utensils so we could prepare our fresh catch of redfish and snapper (Capt.Ted's, out of St. Pete) and there are outdoor charcoal grills for barbecuing. Having two bedrooms on each end of the home provides a sense of privacy even with 8 adults in residence. The beach is just down the street and around the corner! We enjoyed the beach each morning and evening. The sunsets were great! During the hot afternoons we ventured into Clearwater either on foot or via the Trolley (enjoyed Crabby's & Kilwin's) or enjoyed the pool and its ample seating. The pool was well maintained throughout the week and the owner/manager, Dana, was excellent throughout the booking. The house was very clean and there were ample towels. If anything had been needed, Dana would have been on it! We hope to return again next summer!

Our experience at the Mandalay Pool Home was the best ever! Dana was so accommodating and the house was perfect. Clean, welcoming, open and beautiful - lots of nice touches everywhere! The backyard is the best ever with the pool and outdoor furniture. Short walk to the beach and even the downtown area! We will definitely put this on our list to visit again!

Spring Traininf

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of women who have come to Clearwater for spring training for the past 12 years . We have stayed in really bad motels and nice condos. This house, however, far surpasses any of those. The pool was the saving grace this year, especially since it was a bit chilly the week we stayed . Our spirits were not dampened... We loved every minute.

My one sister had her knee replaced 6 months ago and suggests a tub bar to help maneuver but that was the only thing I heard all week. 7 women and not one argument ??? The place is magical !

We visited the Mandalay house with 4 adults and 3 children and absolutely loved this house. The back yard is breathtakingly beautiful and the rooms are spacious. The 3 minute walk to the beach really topped it off. It's about a 15 minute walk into town, so the neighborhood is nice and quiet. Clearwater beach is amazing! While on the beach, we saw manatees swimming out in the gulf, dolphins, and stingrays. We even saw somebody catch a baby hammerhead shark. I would definitely recommend this house to everyone, especially families with children. We will definitely book this house again. Can't wait until next time. Dana was very prompt and professional with each contact.

Mandalay Beach House

  • 5 of 5

With a family of 4 adults, 2 teenagers & 1 infant this 4 bedroom house with private pool was an excellent choice for us. Right around the corner from the beach and only a short walk to the trolley stop you really didn't have to move your car once there. The beach in the morning and the pool in the afternoon made it a perfect vacation. The privacy of the pool area is really nice as well.

Dana was gracious enough to have a special requested treat awaiting us upon arrival. Such a nice touch. Would definitely return in the future.

Thanks Dana
