  • 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!"

  • Great condo at a great price

    "My husband and I rented this lovely condo for 12 relaxing and enjoyable days in April. The property is very clean, comfortable and well maintained. We especially liked having our breakfast out on the front lanai. The pools looked inviting although we didn't get a chance to use them. While walking our dog In this safe and quiet neighborhood, we met many friendly and pleasant people. The location is only minutes to shopping areas, restaurants and theaters. Beaches are only about a 15 minute drive. We went to Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium and the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), all of which were within 30 minutes. The property manager, Bruce, was very helpful and responded to all our questions and needs promptly. Hopefully, we will be able to return sometime in the near future."

  • WOW !!

    "Three friends and I had a great get-a-way! The condo was absolutely perfect and was just as the pictures depicted. Very clean and well taken care of are two adjectives that come to mind. The neighbors were quiet, the beach was not crowded, and we had everything thing to make this a memorable time. The location is convenient to the airport, Clearwater and St. Petersburg for easy access to restaurants and shopping. We were so impressed, we are hoping to be able to return next April.

  • Great condo, just as described and pictured

    "Communication with the owner was perfect and very professional. No problems with the rental and everything was just as described and pictured. The property was very relaxed as it was perhaps 25-50% full when we visited. Pool was cleaned daily, chairs arranged each evening. Property and condo were very clean. We saw stingrays in the surf and daily sightings of dolphins making their way through. Kids were able to practice their snorkeling in the pool prior to the Gulf. The pool was a nice break from the surf and most of the kids in the condo were seen using both. The fishing wasn't so good but it didn't keep people from trying. Two sea turtles found the beach to be an acceptable place to lay eggs while we were there and were marked by the daily turtle patrol We were able to walk across the street to rent a boat for the day and took a trip up to Caladesi Island and down to Johns Pass. Crabby Bills restaurant was our favorite go-to restaurant both for atmosphere and food. The furniture was acceptable and normal beach condo quality. Even with A/C on, we could hear the surf and waves while we slept. The property was nice enough and had enough amenities that we didn't look at emails or watch TV the whole week, and that was a first for my family. While the kids were catching up on their sleep, we drank coffee on the porch and watched people and the surf below. All in all a great property. Good location away from the busy areas with everything you need nearby. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to friends and would certainly rent again. Thanks for sharing your second home with us."
