  • Great location, great service

    "This a great motel in a perfect location with amazing staff (Gayle & Rodney). I stayed for 4 nights with my family (3 & 5 yr old) and was made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Rooms are clean and provide a nice size kitchen. Gayle and Rodney are the nicest people you'll ever meet and are brilliant with the kids. there is plenty of beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, boggy boards, bucket & spades) free for all staying at the motel - including clean beach towels each day. the beach is just 100m away and the main nighttime area (Pier 60) is just 5mins stroll - where family movies are played on the big screen (open air) free for all to attend on Fri & Sat. the beach is beautiful and rated #1 in America by Trip Adviser. don't stay at the big hotels, they are over priced and soleless - the Bluewave Suites is just the perfect family holiday motel with everything you could ever want."

  • Delightful studio, very short walk to beach and sights

    "My husband and I (and our dog) stayed in this studio for a week and really enjoyed it. We looked at many vacation rentals and hotels in the area, and this was under the cost for the location--hotels tended to be around $180 a night, and didn't have full kitchens. Other vacation rentals were a bit more expensive, but some of them could sleep more people, but for just two people (or perhaps a couple and a child) this was more than enough for our needs. It was also great to be able to have dog, especially given that the beach is dog friendly beginning 1 block north of the unit. Unit: The vaulted ceilings in the studio make it seem much larger than the square footage. The photos are representative. The bed and couch were comfortable. The outdoor deck and table (with umbrella) was nice for eating on the deck. There is a small view of the ocean from the deck, but it is not an "ocean view" deck. We enjoyed being able to see the bustle of people on the street from the deck without being a part of it. Amenities: We found the kitchen to be well stocked with dishes and utensils for all of our cooking needs. The Wifi was really easy to access, which is unusual for vacation rentals. There it was quick and easy to connect. We brought an Apple TV and had no trouble streaming Netflix movies in the room. There are chairs and floats for use at the beach if you need them, and there are plenty of towels for shower and beach use. Location: It is a *very* short walk to the beach, and the north end of the beach is far less crowded or touristy than the south end. We really appreciated the quiet and more "low-key" feel of being on the North Beach side of Clearwater Beach. However, it is also really short walk (about 15-20 minutes depending on how fast you walk or whether you walk on the beach or road) to get down to Pier 60 where all of the charter boats and excitement are happening. It is also really close to the Palm Pavillion, which is a great place to listen to live music and watch the sunset. Despite the walk from the more populated areas, we found it safe to walk back after dark and a safe place to walk our dog in the evening. Management/Owner: It was a delight working with Joe! He was responsive and very helpful. Anytime we had a question we heard from him virtually immediately, and he returned our security deposit within 24 hours of checking out -- on a Sunday, no less. I would love to have all VRBO owners to be this pleasant and professional!"

    "My sister and I stayed at this property for an over due girl's long weekend. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of our room and and its location. We were so near downtown we walked every evening for amazing food at local restaurants. I would highly recommend this property - hope to visit again next year!"

  • Clean, lots of sleeping areas, steps from the beach

    "We had a group of 10 people stay at this house over the labor day weekend. We all slept comfortably, there are two large couches which we utilized as beds. The house is very clean and modern, with plenty of towels. Aside from extra toilet paper and paper towels, we only had to bring food and drinks. Bring coffee grinds for the coffee machine. The entry to the beach is literally 30 feet from the driveway. The owner is extremely responsive - he always responds to any inquiries within an hour, usually within a few minutes."
