"We just got back from our week stay at Piper's Nest and highly recommend this condo to others as well as a future repeat stay for ourselves.
The condo is spacious, clean and has everything you need. We have 4 children (ages 10, 8, 5, & 1) and there was a pack&play and booster seat for the toddler, as well as a TV I'm the 2nd bedroom for the older kids if they wanted some space. Speaking of space, my parents had considered coming with us, and I think we could have easily had them join us- with the 3 queen beds, a pullout sofa bed, and the pack&play!
As for the beach, it was AMAZING! This condo is at the back of the building, but there is only the one front condo unit separating it from the beach! We loved that we still had a beach view from the deck and in seconds your feet are in the sand! Since the condo building is a smaller one, we had a good section of beach all to ourselves most of the time. The water was clear with very little seaweed and the birding was excellent!!! We spent one morning north at Honeymoon Island, where the beach was supposed to be better, but ended up returning to the far superior beach at the condo.
There is plenty of shopping, dining, and extracurricular activities near the condo or within a short drive. The Clearwater Aquarium, hope of the famed dolphin, Winter, is an eight minute drive and John's Pass (a shopping and dining hub) is about 8 minutes in the opposite direction. There is a bird sanctuary, miniature golf, little shops and dining/ice cream just a few minutes from the condo as well.
We LOVED our stay at Piper's Nest and would go back again next year!"
