Why The Owner chose Florida Central West

We bought this one bedroom condo because of the layout. It is the largest one bedroom unit offered in this complex because it has the extra room (den)and a full Balcony. Because this is a premier unit, the location and view are fantastic !

There is a view of Tampa Bay waters from every room.

The building that houses this unit is also close by to the club house and pool area.

Our Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall our stay was excellent. The condo itself was everything we had hoped for and more. Our favorite part was sitting on the balcony seeing dolphins, manatees and various types of native birds. The complex itself was like a resort. The pool, hot tub, gym etc. were always well maintained and the gym had more than enough equipment. Within the complex there are walkways to enjoy with excellent views of the bay and even another chance of seeing dolphins. The location in Clearwater offered us a huge variety of things to see and do. There is a large selection of golf courses, restaurants and shopping. There are hidden treasure places to explore like Tarpon Springs, Dunnedin and Safety Harbour. Be sure to walk beyond the main street as there is so much more to see. We would recommend this condo and area to anyone.

Dream Vacation April 1 - April 30 2014 & 2015

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo for the last 2 years and I have to say it looks the same as the video. Lala and Charlie the owners were wonderful people to deal with and if you need something fixed or done, they are on it right away. The scenery from the balcony is just beautiful and I can't say enough about the whole gated community. We loved that it was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. I would rate this condo as the best we have stayed in and we do alot of travelling. Thanks Charlie and Lala we loved it.

A great winter getaway....

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this condo. The condo was very clean and comfortable.

We enjoyed seeing the wildlife from the balcony. It looked very much like the pictures. The owners were very helpful and informative about the area. There is a great bike riding path nearby. We also enjoyed the pool and spa at the clubhouse. It is an easy complex to walk around. We enjoyed Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Bok Gardens, and Clearwater Beach is beautiful. They all make nice day trips. It is centrally located on the Gulf Coast so you can go overnight to see the Florida Keys, etc.

If we decide to head to Florida again we would definitely stay here.

2013 Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay within this condo and that in itself say's a lot. The condo was clean and just as the pictures showed. The facilities are top notch. We played golf at least twice a week and visited new sights. Clearwater Aquarium was great and seeing Winter was amazing. Check out the pier at Safety Harbour for manatees. We saw 5 up close. Our favorite restaurant is Greektown Grill. If you like Greek food be sure to eat there. All in all a great stay and we would recommend it to anyone.

Our family chose this condo to be oceanfront. For the price we were willing to sacrifice the 30+minute drive to the beach on a good day. The condo was beautiful and perfect for our family. We were so offended when the owner accused us of breaking his refrigerator. The freezer handle was loose but functionable so we didn't feel we needed to be petty and report this to him. After waiting the 3 weeks he requested to get our security deposit back, we contacted a very irrate and unreasonable man. He refused to give us back any of our security deposit and said "I had to replace the entire refrigerator because the next tennants were coming that day and a new handle would take weeks to order" Also the extra safety door hinge broke off with the wind pulling the door on it. We were happy to take off the cost of the door hinge and freezer door handle but this man refused. He wanted to mail us his used refrigerator. We have 2 and couldn't see mailing a refrigerator being cost effective. We were very disappointed when Charlie was so offensive and no help from VRBO customer complaint as well.

Owner's Response: We acknowledge that Jack and Laurie filed a complaint with VRBO. VRBO independently reviewed the complaint and found that it had no validity. We regret that Jack and Laurie felt the need to write a negative review six months after the complaint was dismissed by VRBO but that's life and we wish them the best. We encourage our readers to look at our other 5-stars reviews.

What a Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My co-worker and I had meetings in Tampa so we booked this wonderful 2 bedroom condo to stay in. It was very well appointed and had all of the amenities. The pool was great as was the gym and the location was close to the Beaches and Dining. The outdoor patio was perfect for breakfast! We hope to book it again the next time we have to visit for business or pleasure.
