About Bill & Bethany

Bill & Bethany moved to Tampa, FL in 2004 from Narragansett, RI with the hopes of someday owning a beachfront property. Their dream finally came true in late 2013 when they purchased The Sandy Feet Retreat. They now have a 2 year old little boy in their lives that they are excited to make memories with at the beach.

Bill & Bethany purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bill & Bethany chose Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach is the beach we visited in 2004 when we first decided to move to Florida. We knew after walking around the white powdery sand there that this was the beach and soon to be home for us. When we finally took the plunge purchasing a beachfront property we decided upon Sand Key because it was a bit more peaceful and tranquil than Clearwater Beach, yet we could walk over the bridge and still be involved in all the chaos and fun of Clearwater Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our property is one of very few with it's very own expansive, private sundeck. We wanted to have as much outdoor living space as possible allowing us to fully enjoy the views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There was nothing to say except that it was wonderful !

Thank you for the great weather ! I was able to ride my bike almost everyday, I did approx. 400 miles in the 2 weeks.

We really enjoyed the place, went to Columbia 4 times ! Went to see the Rays and Dali museum, Anna-Maria, etc..



I'm sure we will rent it again if available.



Cheers,



Robert & Patsy

This was the best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas and New Year’s here. It was just what we were looking for to relax and unwind. The building is gated and there are security guards that watch the entrance and patrol the grounds. This made for a nice, quiet place - great for a family get away. The condo was clean, nicely furnished, and had plenty of space. It is stocked with everything you will need - beach towels, chairs, toys. The first week we were there my parents joined us, so we had 5 people in the condo and we didn’t feel cramped. The outside space is wonderful. The balcony is a nice size and offers a great viewing place for the New Year’s Eve fireworks. There is a free ride service, drivers work on tips alone, that will come pick you up and take you where you need to go along the beach. That was a great service, we parked our cars and used the service. The beach is nice, lots of shells if you like to collect them. It was fun to walk up and down the beach. There is also a nice space for soccer, football, etc. The only damper on our trip was the weather. Who would have thought temps would drop into the 40s and below in Florida! But, even then the condo was nice and cozy. The Regal 8 theatres offer the reclining chairs and reasonable prices for movies if you have bad weather and want to get out. Would definitely come back here to stay!

great condo location and like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Bethany, Bill and Liam have a beautiful condo with an unobstructed view of beach. We liked that the patio, which the photos don't do justice as it is huge - bigger than most rooms inside houses, is not above pool area. The unit itself was very well equipped with kitchen and bathroom supplies, providing much more than the bare minimum like some other condos. Furnishings are updated, eclectic mix of comfortable practical pieces.

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely condo - had everything we were looking for and everything we needed. Perfect location - right on the beach! With a stunning view and huge balcony. Even got to see dolphins from there too!

Bedrooms, kitchen and lounge were all good too.

Felt really at home here, highly recommend.

Spectacular view with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year of escaping the cold of New England winters and finding the perfect getaway of Sandy Feet retreat. We could not have chosen a more perfect condo. Located on beautiful Sand Key, it was close to everything you needed but yet on the most peaceful stretch of white sand and sparking water.

The condo is located on the 2nd floor with a huge sun deck with expansive views of the gulf.

We loved to sit on the deck early in the day and watch the Dolphins swim by and later in the

afternoon watch the kite surfers flying by while enjoying the perfect sunset.

The condo is set up with everything you could possibly need and the owners are the kindest and most helpful I have encountered through all my VRBO experiences.

The condo is bright, open and extremely clean. The huge sliding glass doors in both the living area and master bedroom bring the beach and sunshine inside. The furniture is comfy and the bed heavenly. Excellent washer dryer!

The location of the condo is in perfect walking distance to Sand Key Park and perfect for a beautiful walk through the park and back down the beach to your condo. You can walk miles on the beach right out front and shelling is great. We found it very quiet, peaceful and uncrowded.

Great restaurants nearby, as well as a wonderful small publix and specialty shop called wildfields that had great meats and salads.

It you are looking for the perfect condo to rent.....this is it...look no further. You will love the owners and their condo!

This property was the best vacation my family has had since the kids were very little. The unit is located on the second floor with breath taking views of the gulf from the large patio deck. The owners were very accomodating furnishing you with everything needed during your stay. Communications were great. I would highly recommend this condo.
