About Joe Duran

We had placed the beach home for sale but due to the decline in real estate sales and property values, we decided we could rent this townhome to others as a vacation home and it was very successful. We shared our beach house with many families or group of friends not only from Canada and USA but also from Europe. Everyone just loved spending time here. It was perfect for families with children instead of staying in hotels or even condos.

Joe Duran purchased this townhome in 1994

Why Joe Duran chose Florida Central West

We always wanted to live on the beach and Belleair Beach was our choice. It is a quiet, safe, prestigious, residential beach town without hi-rise buildings and congestion and yet is only minutes to Clearwater Beach. Within minutes to shopping areas - grocery stores, restaurants.

What makes this townhome unique

Our townhome is an end unit which gives us windows on 3 sides, On the south side we have a 'secret garden' with mature tropical plants. The pool deck is large since the south boundary doesn't end where the house wall ends. It has a secure railing (fence) for privacy and safety. It is secure as you need to get through a locked gate to enter into the yard, courtyard, pool area and the house itself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family (8 adults plus a 3 week old) were looking for a new place to gather for Thanksgiving week. It had to be large enough for everyone to have their space and close to the beach....we really hit the jackpot on both!! This place is quite large and is right on the beach....at hgh tide, the edge of the water is no more than 200 feet from the back door. The private pool and hot tub were great. An extra benefit was the apartment over the garage for the baby & parents....close enought but yet far enought for them to have privacy at night. No elevators to drag coolers and chairs up and down all week plus the location is perfect. Hope to return next Thanksgiving!! Tom & family.

Clean private beachfront home

  • 4 of 5

Very clean! The pool and hot tub were very well taken care of and we appreciated the privacy. Beautiful view from the 2nd floor balcony. Simple access to beach. Property manager was easily accessible. Room above garage is great for a second family or adults, not young teenagers.

My husband and I, accompanied by our daughter, son-in-law, and our 3 year old granddaughter enjoyed a relaxing vacation in belleair beach, "pink palace." The owner and property manager ensured our needs were met. We loved our visit, were sad to to leave, and look forward to a return visit.

Stongly recommend this Beautiful house & location

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad to have found this property. The owner Joe Duran is very personable and thoughtful. I can say the same for his beautiful house. His wife has done a phenomenal job with the decor with her own personal touches. The home is luxurious and very well maintained - cleanliness, decor, amenities, were superb.

Pool was perfect for the kids, having a shallow side for them to swim and play. 20 feet from the sand and beautiful calm gulf ocean.

Kitchen was gorgeous and having the convenience of the grill was a plus.

Tvs in every room was also a huge plus.

Nick the property manager was very responsive and helpful.

The location is excellent, we felt like we had our own private beach. A few days the most we would see is 2 other families. And you are only 10 min from Clearwater if you want to go to the restaurant, stores, Pier 50 (I think that's the name). It's about a 25 minute drive to Tampa and about an house and half to Disney. We did a fishing trip. There's so much to do within a reasonable distance. The struggle was between deciding to leave paradise and venturing to see other places.

We loved everything about this house that we plan to return next summer.

Wonderful stay, with a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the Pink Palace! There were 6 adults, a 5 year old, and 2 under 2! Plenty so space for all! There were toys for the kids to play on the beach and in the pool! The high chair and PAC n play were very helpful! Once we got the kids down at night we enjoyed some of the games they provided, for adult time!

The beach was right out front! And the seashells were unbelieveable! We found so many small Conch shells in perfect condition! And there were thousands of small shells! That was our morning routine! Finding the perfect shells! We also enjoyed the array of wild life manatee and dolphins in the ocean and several species of birds on land!

We flew into st Pete/Clearwater airport so it was only 11 miles Away. Clearwater pier was right down the road about 5min depending on traffic! We enjoyed several great restaurants very close by! It was such an amazing vacation! We hope to make it back! Thank you so much to Joe, Victoria and their property manager Nick! You were all so nice and accommodating! It was greatly appreciated!

CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THE PINK PALACE!!

  • 5 of 5

Well Joe and Victoria, another successful trip to the Pink Palace!! I have figured that our family has spent almost 3 months in total here over the last 8 years! This was trip number 7 to the Pink Palace for our family, our first trip in 2009 our kids were just 3 and 9mths, now they are 10, 8 and 4. This has truly been our home away from home! You couldn't ask for nicer people than Joe and Victoria, over the years they have made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We have found new things to do every time we come. This year we found the Salt Cracker, amazing food! We went to see the Blue Jays play, had amazing seats! We always go to Cooters and The Pub, two our favorite restaurants. But most important is how Joe and Victoria continue to upgrade this wonderful home over the years, this time there was all new appliances in the kitchen and a new kitchen floor. There is a total of 12 members in our family down and there is plenty of room to spare. Had beautiful weather over 80 for 2 weeks straight, left 2 feet of snow home in Canada and were kissed with the sun our whole trip! We are just about to start planning our return for visit number 8! Can't wait to go back, and visit our home away from home and see our friends Joe and Victoria!

Owner's Response: This family from Toronto Canada is not just a renter but good friends. The first time they came was December 2009; 2 months since we made our beachfront townhouse a rental property. The children were infants and now older (plus new additions). We all say this is their home away from home (HomeAway.com) in Florida. Our dedication to improvements continuously make them enjoy themselves more. All new appliances, brand new AC units. Each time they find new things to do and new restaurants to dine. Bottom line, yes they booked again for March 17-31, 2018.

Perfect Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a fabulous week at the Pink Palace! Being able to take a few steps from the pool to the beach was great, and the young children had so much fun collecting seashells. Long walks on the beach in the morning and just looking out at the birds on the Gulf was wonderful. Watching the dolphins and the sunsets was another added benefit. We took trips to Spectrum Field to watch the Phillies play in Clearwater, and also did a day trip to Disneyworld,. The house was clean and had everything needed. We look forward to returning next year!
