About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Our home is a newly renovated and newly furnished 2 story private house. The upstairs (main house) is 3 Bedrooms 2 Baths decorated in a modern beachy style and features great views from the livingroom, kitchen, and bedrooms. The livingroom has a flat panel TV and wood-burning fireplace to make you feel cozy. The kitchen has a spacious granite counter top the color of beach sand and has numerous kitchen gadgets for the serious cook. Our dining table seats 10 people plus the kitchen counter has 4 barstools. The master bedroom has a king size pillow-top 100% organic latex foam mattress with Tommy Bahama bedspread and 800 thread-count sheets. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have queen mattresses, 600 thread-count sheets, with coastal-inspired bedding and decor. All bedrooms have ample closet space and dressers.
The back yard consists of a covered patio, paved large outdoor space with private hot tub, outdoor dining tables, chairs, chaise lounges, ping-pong table, gas BBQ grill, and tropical flower garden. There's an outdoor shower to get the salt and sand off, too. The side yard is really an empty lot, as the property sits on 2 lots. We have a volleyball and badminton net, frisbees, and a Corn Hole game, so plenty of grass for sports on our property.
The garage contains 4 bicycles, a cabana, umbrellas, many beach chairs, beach toys, floating noodles, coolers, and of course we have tons of beach towels in the house. And there's room for your car.
Down the street one-half mile away is the community swimming pool, tennis courts, playground, shuffleboard, bocci ball court, and yoga classes. Restaurants abound, as well as miniature golf, water-sports rentals, a pirate cruise, golf courses, deep-sea fishing charters, and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Winter the dolphin, made famous in the movie 'A Dolphin's Tale'.
Nearby St. Petersburg offers many museums including the new Salvador Dali Museum, as well as the smaller St. Pete-Clearwater Airport (all 20 minutes away). Tampa has the larger international airport (40 minutes away), Busch Gardens, and Adventure Island theme parks.
Depending on the month of your stay, sports abound! Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays, Tampa Bay Lightning, NY Yankees, and the Phillies. Concert halls and theaters are in all directions, all within 30 minutes drive.
There's so much to see and do here, and so much natural beauty to enjoy here. Have a relaxing vacation at CASA LINDA.

Sea turtles lay their eggs on our beaches year after year in May and June. Hatchlings arrive July through October. Volunteers from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium 'babysit' the protected nests and some lucky residents and visitors have the opportunity to see hatchlings make their way to the water.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I am a native Floridian (really!) and enjoy the beach, the water activities, and the beautiful sunsets. My husband and I live in Tampa, we raised our 2 kids here, and we spend our weekends at Casa Linda, our vacation home on Clearwater Beach. We bought this home in 2010 and totally updated it in 2011. We decorated it to reflect our love of the sand and the sea. We have many years of experience renting our ski home in Park City, so now we are doing the same locally here at the beach. We are owners and managers, so when you arrive you'll be personally greeted by us, not a company representative, and when you enter Casa Linda, you'll be entering our home as our dear guests. Anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable would be our pleasure. Recently (Dec. 2013) I passed my real estate exam and became an active real estate licensee. I hope one day to be selling vacation homes to guests who fall in love with the Florida lifestyle.
Why the Owner Chose Clearwater Beach, Clearwater, FL, USA:
I grew up near the beach in Florida but never on it, so when the opportunity arose, we chose this property. Our house is right across the street from the beach. At sunset we'll grab our refreshments and beach chairs and head to the sugar white sand to watch some of the most colorful sunsets on earth. Life is good!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A perfect early morning for me is making a latte in my kitchen and then beachcombing the sand before the crowds arrive to find the prettiest sea shells. A perfect afternoon is a day at the beach, sunny skies, warm water, some waves, and good friends to enjoy it all. A perfect summer night is my volunteer job nest-sitting during a full moon and then over 100 turtle eggs hatch on my shift. I count them, record data, and dig a trench in the sand to help them crawl to the water to begin their journey. Ahh!
