About Bonnie Alfriend

We live in California, but love the beautiful beaches on the gulf in Florida. Terry is a professor and space researcher, Bonnie works on their vacation rental properties in Florida and Maui.

We have 2 adult children, daughter Kim is an attorney in LA and son Kyle is a real estate executive in Ohio. We have 4 wonderful grandsons. Family is our most precious gift and we love nothing better than spending time with them diving in Hawaii or shelling and swimming in Clearwater Beach

Bonnie Alfriend purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bonnie Alfriend chose Florida Central West

Sandpearl Resort is a 5 diamond world famous resort. It has been voted in the top 10 resorts in the world by Expedia. Clearwater Beach is considered in the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Miles of sandy beach with shells galore. One of the most relaxing and quietest times we have in a very busy life.

What makes this condo unique

Sunsets, a glass of wine by the fire pit at the end of a beautiful day, daily activities and educational programs by the resort, the lagoon pool with two hot tubs, a wonderful spa day here at the resort, working out the fitness center, a long walk on the beach collecting beautiful shells and meeting new friends. Biking on the 30 mile bike path is a joy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We also just wanted to say THANK YOU for all your assistance in helping us have a great vacation. This was our 4th Spring Break at The Sandpearl and we thoroughly enjoyed renting your unit. The views were stunning! Everything we expected and frankly more given the view not only to the Gulf but also to the north up towards Palm Pavilion. Georgie and her staff were professional and did an awesome job cleaning the two days we scheduled them. We couldn't rave more about your unit and the experience in renting from you. Thank you!

Great views at a very nice resort.

  • 4 of 5

The AC was not working when we arrived and we had to repair the censor ourselves. Very uncomfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen except for the lack of wine bottle opener. After request for one it never arrived during our stay. Great views at a nice resort however.

Owner's Response: We love to receive reviews on our properties as we work hard to make sure our guests have a wonderful holiday. The resort, this Penthouse, and views are spectacular and we appreciate they enjoyed them. A couple of things to point out in this review, however is the uncomfortable beds. The luxury mattress on the king bed is new as of March, 2017 and considered one of the highest quality made. Also the sofa and sofa bed in the living room was just shipped from the factory in May. I realize that people have different preferences with bed comfort, (hardness or softness), but this came as a big surprise to us as the mattress type came highly recommended to suit all types. I would not want future guests to think the beds are uncomfortable as our other guests have said they were very comfortable. After reading the review I checked on the wine bottle opener, knowing that housekeeping went out the day the guests called and purchased two additional ones and left them at the front desk to be delivered to the suite. We own two properties in the resort and I just found out that the front desk delivered them to our other suite. Had the guests let me know we could have corrected this immediately as they were informed that the purchase was made and openers were on the way to them. We respond immediately to all request from our guests. Some issues such as AC is a matter for engineering at the resort and I cannot speak to their due diligence on this issue as I was not present.

Excellent as usual.

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second time staying in this property at the Sandpearl. We had a wonderful time despite some intermittent rainy weather. Impeccably clean. Well appointed and comfortable. Perfectly located to be able to walk to shops and restaurants. Loved having all the amenities of a hotel. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 4 nights in May. The accommodations were top notch! The condo was spacious, clean and had an amazing view. We enjoyed the balcony doors open to feel the ocean breeze and hear the waves. Coming from Chicago, this was heavenly. Having stayed previously at the Sandpearl, we were excited to get the same quality room for less by going through Bonnie and Terry. Resort fees were included which was a big plus! Resort food was a bit pricey, however there are many great local restaurants within walking distance and the full kitchen leaves you the opportunity to prepare your own meals. You do not receive the maid service daily but we did not miss it due to the washer and drier in the unit. We are looking forward to a return trip in the future!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed in this condo or a week. My wife and I slept in the main bed and each of my two kids had their own pullout bed. It ended up working out great. Plenty of space, not that we needed it. We were literally outside from sun up to sun down every day. The beach was amazing. Saw dolphins right out front several times. The children enjoyed it much more than a previous Disney trip. Swim and play in sand all day every day. The unit itself was great. I was skeptical to book it at first. Wanted to make sure my family got the full experience, and they really do with this VRBO. It was nice having a washer and dryer in the unit. The full kitchen was very nice as well although we never really used it! Valet parking which is $25 a day normally is included, as is any resort fee etc. We rented a car for the week and only used it once. Everything was within walking distance. Great crab shacks, and other restaurants, a grocery store, CVS etc. All within a block or two. I would book it again in a heart beat.
