About Ken Frey

Ken and I are from Iowa/Illinois. We both grew up in the Midwest but eventually want to come to Florida. We have only been together for the last 6 years but it feels like a lifetime and I have truly found my soulmate. Together we have 4 children...Nick, Alexis, Alexis and Lindsey. Yes...I said two Alexis'. This is our second marriage but we still had some explaining to do at the courthouse with two witnesses named Alexis! We are now empty nesters and all of our kids are either in college at the University of Iowa or are working(Love you Nick!). We met on Match (so yes it does work once in awhile!) and Ken proposed to me nearby at Honeymoon Island, Florida! My husband is a contractor and I am in medical sales. We also own some investment property back home and love looking at real estate. Our goal is to retire in this area and this condo! We hope that you will enjoy our property and find it peaceful, well equipped and comfortable. We are happy to share it with you...Thank you for considering us and our property. I know you will love it and treat it like your own home. Thank you!

Ken Frey purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ken Frey chose Florida Central West

We have friends in the Clearwater area and kept visiting(at least twice a year) and the more we visited, the more we wanted a place there for our eventual retirement. Every time we would come to Florida our friends would ask if we were buying a property and we would say, '..when we find the right one'. Well, when we saw this condo on this part of Gulf Blvd, with this view, on this part of the beach...we said, 'This is it!!'

What makes this condo unique

There are a lot of beautiful properties in the area but this one was special because of the view and location. I wanted to see the ocean and the beach from my deck and from the inside of my condo. I didn't want to have to peek around another building or walk across the street to see, smell and hear the ocean...We wanted ocean and beachfront...That means everything..That's why we come to Florida and that's what you get with our condo...Additionally, the elevator is amazing. You can make one trip with groceries or luggage, etc. and it is keyed so it opens to your condo deck only by you...The other great feature is the covered parking space. It will keep your car much cooler and out of the elements so you can leave the top down!

We think it is well decorated and I know it is very clean!

Guestbook comments from the owner

.........your place is by far the nicest place we have stayed on the beach and we will be coming back.

As WONDERFUL as it appears!

  • 5 of 5

What an enjoyable stay! Great location, right on the sugar white sands. the sun sets into the ocean right off the balcony - simply gorgeous. The condo is very well equipped and comfy. We enjoyed having the option to walk up one flight of steps or take the elevator. This is a beautiful rental! I would definitely return.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The Frey's condo was everything we hoped for and more for four adults. We were on the second floor with a pool below and a fantastic view of the ocean from the balcony. Great place to drink your coffee in the morning and a great place to watch the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The condo had a well equipped kitchen where we cooked most of our meals, washer and dryer, spacious living room with large TV and comfortable beds. The condo also had plenty of beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. We liked the idea that this was a small unit of condos which were quiet, the beach was not too crowded and the location of the condo was close to restaurants, rental shops, Clearwater and St. John's pass. We spent most all of our time relaxing on the white sand beach, finding many seashells, and making great memories. Communicating with the Frey's was very easy and I would definitely consider coming back again! Thanks for helping make it a vacation we will never forget!

Fabulous location, views and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Your condo afforded fabulous views of the beach and the location was perfect to everything we needed. The place is well equipped for every need. Would be helpful if you could leave directions for the DVD operation. The bed in the guest room is very hard but that is my only complaint. Thanks for a wonderful time and we'll see you again!

Exactly as Described! Perfect Location, Perfect Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Totally relaxing vacation is this super clean and comfortable condo. Owners obviously take care of it and are easy to get ahold of. Furniture is clean, up to date and comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. Lots of beach toys, chairs and umbrella. Nice sized TVs. I just cant say more about this condo. I am kind of picky about cleanliness so I really liked that there is no carpet in the unit. Nicely beachy decorated. Just had a great time here and already booked for next year! Location, beach and pool is perfect too!

Great location, perfect for our little family!

  • 5 of 5

Great property with a location that can't be beat. We spent a week at the condo, escaping the cold and snow of an Ohio winter and the condo worked out perfect for us (my sister, my husband and 10 month old son). The view of the water and amenities are great. Traveling with a toddler we wanted space for him to play and also to have a pool and beach access and this was perfect for us. We were also close to a few great restaurants and only 2 miles from Largo to pick up other necessities like groceries at the local Publix Supermarket. I would definitely recommend for families or just one or two couples away for a beach vacation.

Great Condo! Loved it and the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo! The condo itself was spacious, clean, beach themed and the beds were very nice! Views are terrific as is the elevator convenience. Everything is up to date and the kitchen was well stocked. We cooked breakfast and lunch every day and went out for dinner so I loved it! We spent every day either in the pool or on the beach or both. Very nice to be able to walk right from the beach to the elevator and into the condo. Fabulous part of Florida! Lots of great restaurants and very relaxing time!

This condo is in the heart of everything! 10 minutes to Clearwater Beach, 10 minutes to shopping at John's Pass. Walk to restaurants like Crabby Bills, PJs, Guppy's, and JDs nightlife. Families don't forget the Bird Sanctuary and Clearwater Marina are minutes away. There is a trolley that runs to Clearwater Beach and down to Johns Pass all day, every day! All of this and only an hour and a half to Orlando!
