"What a lovely condo. Squeaky clean upon arrival! Beautifully updated and decorated throughout. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. Loved the soft close cabinetry in the kitchen! The slide door on the balcony was easy to glide open and closed. AC worked perfectly - though would have loved if an outdoor AC came with the unit to take to the beach ;) *surprise * Florida in July is hot! Excellent water pressure in showers, all plumbing worked perfectly. Appreciated the flat screen TVs throughout.
You can rent cabana chairs/umbrellas from beachservicewest.com for $125/wk - but reserve in advance. The TOY CLOSET on the balcony has tons of chairs and an umbrella if you don't mind carrying them to and fro. Closet also has blow up toys, bait bucket, and we left a small crabbing net behin . In the evenings you can take a flashlight, net , and a bucket down and wade in the water to about knee deep and catch blue crab.
Supplies we bought for a week:
Laundry pods (HE ONLY ), paper towel, plates, plastic ware, toilet paper, shampoo/cond, body soap and whatever food/drinks we wanted. Cleaning supplies are all included
Best meal we had was home cooked. We went to keywestshrimpcompany.Com at 215 150th Ave in Madeira and bought red grouper, shimp, and scallops fresh off the boats. Definitely buy their key lime seasoning.
We went fishing off Redington pier, which was very expensive and it is surrounded by rocks. We lost 8 hooks in an hour and if you rent the rods, it's $3 each for a ready rig and hook. Pier 60 in Clearwater is expensive too, but you aren't getting caught on rocks. You can also just rent rods at Redington Bait And Tackle about $20/day and find yourown little spot to fish from.
If you want to SUP, oaddlebaord, or HobieCar, chexk out groupon for Sand Key power sports. $40/ 2 hr for the Hobie.
Can't say enough good things about this beautifully decorated unit with prime view. Great place to be on 4th of July - but this unit won't be available because we are going to rebook this week in thus unit every year from now on.
Carole, thanks for providing such a great condo for rental."
