About Carrie Granato

Hi, My name is Carrie. My husband, Jack and I are Clearwater natives. We married in 1992 and honeymooned on these very beaches. We promised each other then, that someday we would have our own spot on the sand. Since then, life has kept us very busy. We've raised two, terrific teenage boys who enjoy the beaches as much as we do. Now we are excited to have our honeymoon dream come true, and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Carrie Granato purchased this condo in 2012

Why Carrie Granato chose Florida Central West

We have vacationed on many of Florida's beaches, trying to find our perfect spot. We finally found it and are confident that you will agree, nothing beats Sand Key. Its broad beach, white sand and tranquil, secluded setting makes it the perfect place to relax and unwind.

What makes this condo unique

The Tampa Bay area has been a great place to grow up and raise a family. It is a busy area, filled with entertainment at every turn. What we love best about our spot on Sand Key is that we have all the area's conveniences right at our door, yet when we are on the Sand Key, we are away from the crowds and have the beach practically to ourselves. We've tried our best to make it cozy & comfortable, and even brought our bed from home. It's a Sleep Number® adjustable bed, which means everyone can personalize the mattress firmness for a relaxing sleep. We love staying here, and welcome you to join us in paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Jack and Carrie, your place is beautiful and we were blessed to share in it for two weeks. We ate breakfast on the terrace every morning…wonderful. We were joined by the dolphins most mornings; it was amazing to watch them.



Once breakfast was done, we hit the beach, which was beautiful. We were a bit disappointed to see some litter on the beach though. It’s sad that people leave their trash on the sand.



Other than that the water was calm and warm…just perfect. Your kitchen was well equipped and we made beautiful meals every night. Think we put on a few pounds.



We must look into a sleep number bed when we get home…super comfy.



Our family made some beautiful memories here at Sand Key. We had a fabulous time!

The best place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at our Lighthouse Towers condo. Located on Sand Key within close proximity to Clearwater, but offered us the privacy of our own beach. Each condo is privately owned. We had our own parking space. We didn't have to fight for parking, or a ton of people at the elevator. We came into our condo with a personized welcome note, flowers and home baked cookies from the owners Carrie and Jack. It was nicely decorated, beautiful tile throughout, unlike the dingy carpeting at many hotels. The balcony was so nice with a little table. We enjoyed the view and sounds of the ocean each morning while enjoying our coffee. The kitchen was well equipped, very modern, even had condiments, coffee pods, salt, pepper, cooking oil, Pam spray, sugar and so on for us to use. The 2 bathrooms were very nice and clean. There is a first aid kit, soap, a blow dryer and few other things that we could use. Plenty of bath towels. The master had a walk in closet, many hangers, and plenty of drawers in the bedroom. They had beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, goggles, beach toys, and an umbrella available for us. There was a very nice heated pool, a couple of grills and an area to eat. It was very secure. A pass was needed to enter the building. Security is always at the parking entrance. The best part was all the personal touches from Carrie and Jack! We will definitely stay there again.

Returning next year!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our seven weeks at Serenity so much that we've already booked the condo again for next year! Everything was just as described and more. Perfect! Carrie & Jack welcomed us with a bottle of wine, candy, and a very sweet note. Great way to start our stay. They were always just a phone call (or email) away to answer any questions we had. They helped to make our stay wonderful with their attention to detail and making sure we had everything we needed. The beach is beautiful, almost our own private beach at times. There are very good restaurants within easy walking distance, perfect for a nice dinner out and then a short walk home to walk off the delicious meal. The Columbia and Backwater's are in the plaza that is less than a block away from the condo. The 1905 salad at Columbia is huge and delicious. The crab cakes at Backwater's are truly the best we've ever had. They served them just once a week during our stay so call ahead if you'd like to try them. If you want more activity, it's just a short drive (or a good walk) over the bridge to Clearwater Beach. MUCH busier there but we enjoyed the walk over the bridge (a little over a mile) and the added variety of restaurants. Head south on Gulf Blvd. for even more restaurants and things to do. Our favorite activity of our stay was watching the gorgeous sunsets, with our glass of wine, all from the comfort of our condo. Can't wait to return to our home away from home next year!

Absolute Peacefulness & Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to spend an entire month in serenity. Carrie & Jack supplied everything we needed from the fully equipped kitchen to sand toys for our six yr old son and everything in between. No need to overpack since you have your very own washer/dryer. C & J were so incredibly nice & always just a call away for any questions we had, they even left yummy cookies & sweet wine for us when we arrived which was greatly appreciated after driving for two days! The pictures don't truly show how beautiful the views are, from waking in the morning seeing the Dolphins play in the ocean to gorgeous sunsets while eating dinner we barely wanted to leave the condo. We would set up the umbrella & comfy beach chairs (which even had a small cooler pocket) in the morning go for a swim and collect the most perfect shells then grab some lunch and return for another swim, nobody ever touched our belongings while we were gone. We felt very safe at all times. Clearwater beach is a few minutes away but we rarely went since it has been severely commercialized and overdeveloped it's much nicer to drive to Indian rocks and their beautiful Boardwalk & beach preserve which is only a 10 minute drive south on Gulf Blvd. Although we did make a few trips to eat at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill (not all Frenchy's are the same quality) which has the best Shecrab soup & most reasonably priced good food, which is hard to find in the touristy area. Don't hesitate to book since I'm sure everyone who stays at Serenity will be coming back, we sure will!

I want to personally thank Carrie & Jack for helping make our family vacation so worry free and sharing their beautiful home. To all future renters please care for their home with all the love & respect it deserves so that we can return for many years to come.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Wow, wow, wow, just perfect for our holiday. This condo is amazing, with fantastic views of Sand Key beach. Everything you could want and more, immaculately clean and well equipped. Carrie and Jack have thought of everything and were a pleasure to deal with, from the initial enquiries to leaving the condo. We felt as if we were staying at a friend’s house as we felt extremely comfortable as soon as we walked through the door. We only wished we could have stayed longer but hope to visit again next year.

Sand, sea and perfect sunsets.

Extremely clean and well equipped.

Relaxing.

Excellent location.

Nice fixtures, fittings and furnishings.

Incredibly hospitable owners.

Ten out of ten.

You should visit, you will not be disappointed.

Serenity on Sand Key

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a one month stay (April 2015). Having selected the rental property on line, it looked good and we hoped we made a good decision. Turns out we made a great decision and have already booked this condo for January 2016. We were impressed with the user friendly approach/process of the owners, Carrie and Jack. Communications pre, during and post stay were cordial and friendly. They were extremely helpful. We arrived to fresh flowers on the dining room table and a bottle of wine! The views and sunsets were spectacular. The condo felt like home for the month.
