About Maryhelen Allbritton

I'm originally from Mt. Vernon, Indiana, but came to Clearwater 46 years ago to live in this beautiful tropical paradise. After graduating high school in Indiana I went in search of palm trees. I headed to Florida, with two places circled on the map, Clearwater and Palm Beach, simply because the names sounded so pretty. Came first to Clearwater and ended up staying and never made it to Palm Beach. Clearwater Beach was amazing then just as it is now! I married a local 5th generation Florida guy and our children are now proud to be 6th generation Floridians. Our family loves the beach and the water, and make it a part of our lives.

Maryhelen Allbritton purchased this house in 2003

Why Maryhelen Allbritton chose Clearwater Beach

We bought this home to make it available to my family and other families that want to visit Clearwater Beach as I did years ago. It's so much nicer experiencing a beach vacation in a home rather than a motel room.

What makes this house unique

Our home is ideally located on north beach in the quiet residential neighborhood of Clearwater Beach. Close enough to walk or bike ride to the restaurants, shopping, bars, etc., yet in the quieter part of the beach where it feels like home. The beach access is a short distance away - a one minute easy walk by foot. You still are close to shopping, dining, charter fishing and a myriad of activities. The best of both worlds- come see for yourself!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at your Beachcomber rental for the week of July 1-July 8 and wanted to thank you for allowing us to do so. It was a perfect location for us to visit our Clearwater/St. Pete family as well. We will definitely be returning to one of your rentals when we decide to visit again. Your check-in process was perfect and it was nice to actually meet you. We also enjoyed seeing the news anchor, Lauren St. Germain, on your local Tampa news station, as she recently moved there from our local Chattanooga station! Thank you again for allowing our family to call your rental home for the week!

Great Stay, amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was just what we were looking for. The proximity of this quaint house to the beach is wonderful, just a short 60 - 90 second walk and you are on the beautiful beach. The proximity to the beach was the primary reason we booked this property, the other huge factor was being able to bring a pet along with us. The house is located in a residential area and it is about a little bit more than a mile walk to the pier where all the restaurants are. The house is just as it is pictured on the vrbo site, so no surprises whatsoever. The house I would say is mid-century, the hardwood floors and other architectural features gave the house a warm feeling with charm/character which we really liked. The Wifi was solid and had no issues with it functioning. Everything we needed was there in the kitchen and having a dishwasher was great. We also used the grill one night and it worked very well, no issues with it. We really enjoyed the house everything being tidy and neat, it was plenty big enough as well. We used the beach chairs each day with no issues, we did not use the umbrellas as there was too much wind on the beach for those types of umbrellas. We did ride a few of the bikes but only for a little bit as we really wanted to spend all the time at the beach. The other bikes that were there needed some work in my estimation. It was not a big deal for us, but wanted to call it out in case that is important for other renters. It is well worth your time to make sure you go down to the beach for sunset every night it is so beautiful, also for a quick bite go to Pearly’s the food was very good. The rental process was fast and easy with great communication throughout from Maryhelen who was super nice. All in all was a great stay with no issues really. Without a doubt If we ever have the chance we would definitely come back and stay again, we truly enjoyed staying here! Thanks Maryhellen, we had a wonderful time staying at the Beachcomber.

In full disclosure I would say that the real rating would be a 4.5 but can’t get that granular on this site so picked a 5. Did not want to sell this great house short by selecting only a 4.

Great quiet location!!

  • 5 of 5

Nice place to stay in. Only 1-2 blocks to the sandy beaches. It is listed as a 2 bedroom but the sun room could be used for a smaller person's bedroom. Nice beach gear and accessories to use. Paddleboard company will deliver to the house and pick up for free. Only a 1-2 block walk to the beach.

Amazing experience. The owner was so welcoming and provided us with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The house was just like we wanted it. Easy access to the beach; the house provided all the beach accessories we needed. Very close to shopping areas and restaurants. The owner was very understanding when we asked to arrive a little early and leave a few hours late. Thank you for that Maryhelen. Definitely looking forward to coming here again.

Easy beach access and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for our family and young children. The house is just like the pictures. It has comfortable beds, nice televisions, and solid wifi. The beach is a 1-2 minute walk, and it is amazing. Pier 60 is a one mile easy walk away. The house comes with beach towels, bicycles, beach chairs, beach umbrellas (but most broken), children beach toys, and boogie boards. We did have to supply own soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, and resupply dishwasher detergent and toilet paper after running out toward end of one week stay. Overall, the house was perfect for the price with only a few small details that need fixing.

Charming, Comfortable & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The house was ideally located for our family's long weekend getaway. Situated on a quiet street with a trolley stop and steps to the beach, we were able to enjoy the best of Clearwater Beach. We enjoyed the safe and easy walk to the beach in the mornings and hopped on the trolley for a stress-free ride to the action in the evenings. We felt like we were living the dream of life at the beach.

The house itself was a charmer - clean and packed with amenities to make it feel like home.

The owners were welcoming and truly seemed to want us to enjoy our time at the beach. We hope to rent from them again in the future.
