Accurate description and clean — accommodations are too minimalistic to make it a fun experience
I have 3 general comments about the property regarding accuracy of the property description, my personal experience with the property and the communication with the owner.
1. Accuracy of the description - in general the accuracy of the description was high. The pictures of the unit matched reality. The unit was within walking distance of everything, from beach to restaurants to shopping to water activities. The pictures of the inside looked like the real property. I also liked that they provided some essentials like salt/pepper, coffee filters, hand soap, toilet paper and dish soap so I didn’t have to go buy those.
2. My personal POV of the unit was very marginal as the cost for what you get is not worth it. On the one hand, the unit was clean and all the linens/towels were white (gave me a sense of clean) but on the other hand it was too minimalistic to make the vacation special. With some minor low cost adds, this could have been so much better! We travelled from Ohio so I was counting on not having to bring so much with me: It would have been nice to have beach towels and beach chairs to take to the beach (instead of me bringing them from Ohio). It would also have been nice to have chairs to sit outside the unit for a morning coffee or an evening drink (instead we had to drag the uncomfortable
Dining chairs out); it would also have been nice to have a blow dryer for our hair as every hotel always provides and perhaps a mirror somewhere in the unit (the only mirror was the bathroom one); we
Only got 4 white towels and one bath mat; It was hard to keep the mat clean and with no laundry options, it became a little gross after a couple of days; the AC units were window units; They were fine in March, but i wonder if they would provide adequate cooling during hot months.
3. Communications - in the end, I got what I needed from Dan, but it was clear that he was a “distant” owner providing only the minimum amount of information and communication but had no interest in the customer experience. If you are a traveler That is arriving after hours, make sure you get specific instructions on where and how to get in (the unit is upstairs and you have to access it through an obscure door downstairs). I was fortunate to have the property people
Help me When I got there During the Day.
Overall the experience was adequate (and importantly clean) but I would never characterize it as anything special.
Clean, well stocked, PERFECT location!
My granddaughter and her friend had a wonderful spring break stay -- loads of fun, and so convenient! Frenchy's, they say, is dope...
Great location/great condo
This was a great location, close to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Since it's towards the North part of the island it was in less of a sky scraper/commercialized area which is what the southern part felt like. Great condo to stay in with everything you need. Lack luster communication from the owner is my only true complaint
We had a great stay. Perfectly located in Clearwater beach. Very clean, felt like home. Very good value!
Clean and modern furnished apartment that's very close to all that is Clearwater Beach. Absolutely no issues. We thought it was perfectly set-up for what we wanted. Description is 100% accurate! Have fun.
Brand New, Modern Apartment just steps from Clearwater Beach!
This apartment is on the 2nd floor of a building at the end of the block that runs just behind Mandalay, the main street through Clearwater Beach. The apartment is one of several that appear to all have been recently renovated in Mid-2016, and it is very modern and clean throughout. There is a King bed in the bedroom, and a queen-sized pullout sofa in the living room. It has a full kitchen and small dining area, good for playing cards or games with the kids. Large 50+" TVs in both rooms, with cable and wifi. Everything is brand new, and the unit is not at all cramped.
We were VERY comfortable in this apartment. It is only a couple hundred feet from the beach entrance next to the Sandpearl, a great place to get dinner or drinks and watch the sunset. Parking was a challenge (none assigned), so you have to look for on-street parking near the unit, and most of it is limited to 2hours. That, however, is common to all the units like this in Clearwater Beach, and you'll pay heavily to stay at any of the hotels nearby, so don't let that dissuade you. Also, the city is building a very large parking deck adjacent to this unit, to the parking issue will disappear later in 2016. The owner was responsive to our questions on arrival, and everything was orderly and well-managed.
The best aspect of this apartment, is its location. We were able to easily walk everywhere for shopping or activities, including down to the marina and Pier60. That can't be said of many of the hotels on lower Clearwater Beach, or the houses for rent in the north end of the island. Also, even though the unit is above a bunch of retail shops and offices, everything was very quiet at night, with no traffic noise or people wandering around. I've stayed in Clearwater Beach many times in the past 10 years, and will definitely come back to this place.
