About Karen Bickford

We currently reside in Bolton Massachusetts also known as Apple Country. My husband and I are both small business owners and have a lovely teenage daughter. We love to fly down to Clearwater Beach for some sun and fun when time permits. May and October are our absolute favorite times of the year to visit. The weather is just right, not too hot or too cool.978 333 9065

Karen Bickford purchased this condo in 2009

Why Karen Bickford chose Clearwater Beach

We fell in love with Clearwater Beach when we came here in 2009 to visit some friends. Our plan was to look for a property that we could purchase and then later retire to.

We were at the time looking outside of Clearwater Beach for the right property. After viewing several properties south of Clearwater Beach and coming back to Clearwater Beach at the end of each day; we made the decision that we really should try to find something in Clearwater Beach.

Our Realtors Alex and Laren Jansen of Christies Coastal Properties Group brought us to see our now unit at Harborview Grande. We once again fell in love with the breathtaking views from the balcony and well thought out floor plan and decided to purchase. It has been 7 years since we purchased and are very happy that we did.

The location is so tropical that I often feel that I am on a Caribbean Island. Cancun/Playa Del Carmen Mexico is my all time favorite vacation spot. Clearwater Beach reminds me a lot of Mexico without the long flight and occasional stomach upset 

It is a great vacation area for families with small children as well as the younger generation that want the nightlife.

The older generation will appreciate the ease of walking the Beach Walk, bicycling, swimming in the warm gulf waters and enjoying the great sunsets. Restaurants and shopping are plentiful in the area as well.

Clearwater Beach is a very diverse culture that has something for everyone. We absolutely love the area and all the great things there are to do and see.

We ask that you too come to Clearwater Beach and see all the many things the area has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

The balcony and the views stole my heart away; there really is nothing better than sitting on the balcony taking in the panoramic views of Clearwater Bay and the Gulf of Mexico watching the boats go by and dolphins frolicking in the water below.

The well appointed floor plan was integral in my decision to purchase as well as the location and security of the property. It was and is still all good…..

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is beautiful, comfortable and well equipped. Thank you for all he extras, it exceeded our expectations! We had one of the best vacations and we’ll return. Thanks!

Location and comfort

  • 5 of 5

This condo was in a great location. Easy to walk to beach across the street or 2 minute drive to Sand Key beach. We saw dolphins in the harbor and from the beach.

The rooms were a nice size for our family of 4, we could have had 5. This is much better than the local hotels in the area. The kitchen was stocked with most of the things that you need for the week. The washer and dryer was handy, we only packed 4 days of clothes for an 8 day trip.

Karen was clear on what was included and she shared many things to do and restaurants to visit. She keeps the place up to date and cares about the condition of the condo. We like to go to a different location every year, but I will be back there within the next 3 years.

I recommend a trip to Pedego e-bike up in Dunedin. $30 per hour plus a free hour is just enough to ride a bike trail to Honeymoon beach. The e-bike is great for care free riding. It acts as a pedal assist and it is perfect.

Clearwater beach was like bath water. The air temperatures were 95F for hi's in early August. The water temperatures were about 85F. We had 7 days of light waves and 1 day of rough seas. The red tide / green tide was 50-100 miles to the South of us, so this seems like Clearwater is typically free from the problem.

We loved the Clearwater Beach area. There is lot's to do and the condo was in a perfect location. We sat out on the patio and watched dolphins almost every morning. Karen was quite helpful with her recomendations and always accessible when we had any questions. I would for sure rent this condo again when in the Clearwater area.

This unit is a pleasure to stay in. Enjoyed the balcony seating as we watched dolphins play in the water below on a daily basis. The kitchen is well appointed and and easy to work in. We prepared many meals and enjoyed the setting. I would recommend this to anyone.

Beautiful & spacious condo within walking distance to everything on Clearwater Beach.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Harborview Grande and had a really good time. The condo was very spacious and comfortable. The views of the marina from the large balcony were amazing. We walked every day to Pier 60, Beach, shopping and restaurants, everything was close by. Karen was very helpful with restaurant recommendations. Our favorites were Clear Sky and Speggtacular for breakfasts, Clear Sky and Salt Crackers for lunch, Caesars, Gondolier’s and Salty’s for dinners. Across the street hotel, The Edge, has a beautiful roof top bar with fabulous views of Clearwater Beach. Thank you Karen for making our stay so enjoyable. Camille & Barry Nelson
