Overview

About the property

Impeccable 1bd 1&1/2 bath condo with direct beachfront view

Take a tour of our vacation home, check out the video above.

Gorgeous beachfront condo with amazing views from your over sized 2nd floor balcony. Only two of the one bedroom condos in this building have this extra bonus outdoor space. Floor to ceiling windows look out to the white sandy beach and turquoise waters of the Gulf. Away from the crowded tourist areas, this quiet and tranquil beach feels like you have it all to yourself, because you do. Sand Key is a prestigious beach community that has some of the widest most private beaches in Florida. While only separated by a bridge from Clearwater Beach’s amenities and attractions, Sandy Key is a serene and tranquil oasis. The buildings premium amenities include a large heated pool and spa that has full sun all day long, an outdoor kitchen with gas BBQ-grill, tennis court, shuffle-board, basketball hoop, reserved parking and 24/7 security guard.

This unit has been tastefully updated. It is bright, contemporary and comfortable. A fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need to feel right at home includes; microwave, double oven, refrigerator, keurig coffee maker, blender, toaster, stainless steel cookware, flatware, tableware and utensils. Just add your groceries. The dining table seats four and there are two chairs at the kitchen bar area as well.

The bedroom has a queen sized bed with a brand new 13” thick memory foam mattress. The pillows are not your typical hotel pancake variety, there are 4 of them and they are king sized and cozy. There are plenty of high quality linens for your stay. It also has a walk-in closet with plenty of storage. There is a comfortable chair, a 50” flat screen tv and ceiling fan. The bedroom has a sliding glass door out to a covered patio with direct beach views.

The living room has spectacular views of the beach through the floor to ceiling windows.

There is a writing desk and a 55” flat screen television with Blu-Ray player. High speed internet, basic cable and phone service with unlimited calls to the U.S. And Canada are all provided. In case there are four staying we have also included a queen sized aerobed to use.

The master bathroom has a granite countertop and walk-in shower with a bench, no bathtub. Plenty of quality towels are provided as well a blow dryer. The half bath is updated with granite as well and located near the entrance of the unit.

There is a washer and dryer with iron and ironing board in the unit for your convenience, no need to pack as much for your stay. We have large beach towels, chairs and a beach umbrella for your use. Also a rain umbrella, you never know… The building has both an elevator and stairs. Lighthouse Towers is smoke free and pets are not permitted for renters.

A short walk from Lighthouse Towers are the “Shops of Sand Key” including; Dunkin Donuts, an ice cream store, nail salon, convenience store, pizza and a few restaurants. The restaurants have table service while you sit dockside on the bay. As a Florida native I have to confess that you will get more out of your visit with a car. There are so many things to see and do but they are spread out. That being said you might find that a car is not necessary if you are only planning on enjoying the beach. In that case most everything you would need is within walking distance and if you choose to go further you can catch the Jolly Trolley. It runs along Clearwater Beach and Sand Key. PSTA Dial-a-Ride offers bus and trolley service around the beach area. Even if you have a car we recommend it because it is very convenient and inexpensive.

We are located near many tourist activities, including: Clearwater Aquarium, Clearwater Marina for deep-sea fishing, water sports, dolphin watching excursions, sunset cruises, shopping, dancing, dining and much more. Clearwater Beach is one of the best beaches in the country. USA Today confirmed what everyone who has ever been here already knows...

The Clearwater Community Sailing Association is a short walk away as well. If you enjoy sailing or kayaking you can rent boats there.

Lighthouse Towers HOA rules state that 14 nights is the minimum rental period allowed. No owner at Lighthouse Towers can lease for a shorter period of time. 14 nights is actually among the shortest leases on a Sand Key condo, most are minimum 30 nights. You can stay for less than 14 nights obviously but the two week lease and rates still apply. You’ll find that this is a much better deal than a local hotel when you consider the amenities.

There is also travel/vacation insurance available from a few national companies. These policies vary but may be worth it for you if you are staying for an extended time.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no additional convenience fee when paying by 'eCheck' or check. All other forms of payment will require an additional 3.5% convenience/credit card fee in addition to the lease price.

Thanks and please call if you have any questions.

About Vincent Caschetta

We are Florida natives who have lived here all our lives. I spent much of my childhood enjoying these beaches before any of these buildings were even here. I had always dreamed of living here on the beach and have now been fortunate enough to do so. We currently live and work in Southeast Florida. We aren't quite ready to retire so we'd like to share our dream with you.

Vincent Caschetta purchased this condo in 2015

Why Vincent Caschetta chose Clearwater Beach

We bought this property because we love the serenity of the beach and the quiet community. We have always wanted a condo on the beach. We plan on retiring to Sand Key. In the meantime we will vacation there.

What makes this condo unique

We chose this property because of the breathtaking views and over sized balcony over looking the beach. We love being able to enjoy a nice meal or a glass of wine out on the balcony. Clearwater Beach has a small town feel with big city amenities. Tampa is about 20 miles away, the greater Tampa area offers all the extras you could want;

Sand Key Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our 3rd year staying at Vincent and Jennifer's condo for the month of March. As always, we had a great time. The condo is beautiful and equipped with everything you would need to make it a home away from home. Their attention to detail is exceptional in both the decor and all the extra amenities. It truly is a little gem in a beautiful location.

Wonderful way to spend February!

  • 5 of 5

Lighthouse Towers is a very nice property and our condo was top notch! Very comfortable and clean and beautifully updated and decorated. The extra large balcony was wonderful and we spent many hours out there enjoying the warm breezes and the incredible view. We had everything we needed and more! Vincent responded to our booking request immediately and provided us with all of the information that we needed. We texted him with questions about the door lock and the Fire TV while we were there, and he called us back right away and very patiently walked us through how to use both of them. He was a wonderful host and we hope to return to Sand Key again and would book this same condo.

Outstanding...words cannot describe. The owner has thought of everything !!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a month during Christmas and New Years. My first thought is to leave a bad review, only because I do not want others to find out about this jewel. I want to keep this secret to myself, That would not be fair to the owner who has thought of everything to make your stay great. The Condo is outfitted with the best of everything you will need, top quality. for example 3 different types of coffee makers, dishes, silverware. Tennis rackets, balls, beach chairs and umbrella even a beach cart. Other than groceries everything is here that you will need for a comfortable stay. And guess what if you call the phone number given the owner answers every time. And I really believe will do anything in his power to make your stay great.

The staff at Lighthouse towers was great, Security, Maintenance every one was very polite and helpful.

They have outdoor grills, security has to be called to start grills and always did so happily and right away, never once did anyone every complain when asked to do a service. I found Lighthouse Towers to very clean and well maintained, and in a very safe and secure area, walking at night was always a pleasure, this Condo is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Clearwater Beach, even though we did walk to the beach on several occasions.

We drove down from Michigan and had an assigned parking space, but there were many days in a row when the car was never used, someone could get by without a car because everything is close, or accessible by The Jolley Trolley. If you do have a car Tampa was about 40 minutes away, Orlando about 1 1/2 hours and 20 minutes South is the Treaure Coast with lots of beaches.

When we got to the Condo it was immaculate, even had new air fresheners in place. Again everything is top quality, and I can’t say enough about how receptive the owner is to your needs, the amenities were well thought out for the traveler.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo, and stayed in 2016 and 2017. Sand Key is a very quiet beach. The view is beautiful on the over-sized deck. Kitchen essentials, bed, bedding, washer, dryer, beach towels,

furnishings are new. Light House Towers is a well maintained and 24 hour gated security. The only thing you need to bring is food. We plan to stay again. A great condo for a couple. Vincent replied instantly with any questions.

A Wonderful Stay At A 5* Condo

  • 5 of 5

If you have read all the other reviews, you will get the picture that this condo is a great place to stay. There's not much more to add, other than for us, what we appreciated most is that:-

The condo is spotlessly clean

High-end furnishings

A very comfortable bed

Plenty of bath and beach towels

A great location for the beach, local shops and restaurants and the Jolley Trolley

Beach chairs, umbrella and beach cart, which are very useful as we travel from overseas

Well stocked modern kitchen

Vincent, the owner answered emails promptly

We had a great time at Sand Key and we would not hesitate in rebooking, but as we like to visit different parts of the USA, we have not done so. However, if we are able to in the future, we will not hesitate.

We highly recommend this beautiful condo.

peaceful right on the each

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very nice and relaxing. The booking experience was good from start to finish and Vincent always responded to any queries etc. promptly. We were staying 2 weeks after hurricane Irma and Vincent had e-mailed to say that the condo had not had any damage and that we could look forward to our stay.

The condo itself is exactly as the description and had everything you would need to enjoy a relaxing stay right on the gulf.
