Enjoy Your stay and have a great time.
Island Charm has a great location and was very clean. It served our purposes for a long weekend reunion well. We were able to easily walk to town and go back and forth to the beach frequently. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious. The pool was very green when we arrived, but this was very quickly fixed with one phone call to the host. So, no complaints there. The futon frame was broken when we went to use it; if you need the futon, I recommend confirming with the host if it is functional. Overall a great experience with no regrets.
Die Unterkunft war im Wesentlichen so wie Beschrieben.
Da wir schon öfters Häuser in dieser Gegend gemietet haben kennen wir die Gegebenheiten recht gut. Dem Vermieter möchte ich aber ans Herz legen das die Endreinigung sorgfältiger durchgeführt werden muss. Das Haus war nicht so sauber wie andere Häuser die wir gemietet hatten. Der Pool wurde auch nicht regelmäßig gesäubert. Nachdem wir dies dem Vermieter mitgeteilt haben wurde das aber nachgebessert. Die Lage und die Aufteilung des Hauses sind aber für 6 Personen Strandurlaub sehr gut.
The house was fantastic. It was only three blocks from the beach in the east and only a few miles from CVS, Burger King or Subway. The house is clean, the rooms are large enough for our incredible 12 suitcases. A 2014 ford fusion and a 2015 camry easily fit in the driveway of the house. It was really a great pleasure to live here.
We had a terrific month at Island Charm !
The location was great for our needs. The neighborhood was peaceful. It was really close to the beach and at a walkable distance to Clearwater Beach attractions.
The house was spacious and the "guest house" was very useful when we had friends & family coming over. We spent countless hours in the backward !
Muhamed was very attentive to our needs and responded promptly whenever we had questions or requests.
We are already thinking of booking for next year !
It was a big house, did what we needed it to. The futon was broken when we arrived but it didn't affect our stay too much. The pool was awesome, it does look green but we didn't have any problems with it.
We had a great stay at Muhammed's place. It was wonderful and clean inside, and had many comforts. We stayed a few days with our 4 daughters and their uncle. We had plenty of room and towels. Beds were comfortable and rooms were cozy. There was Netflix for the kids at bed time, a few old movies and games, a full kitchen, and plenty of showers available. The outdoor space even had a fire pit, grill with propane, kayak, pool, hot tub, bikes, pools toys, and beach toys. We enjoyed spending our evenings making smores on the comfortable patio set while the kids swam. The beach was walking distance and not crowded at all. Our only downfall was that the pool was a little dirty. I'm not sure if the pool guy isn't doing all he can on that end or if it's because the pump had been turned off before we arrived. I know the host doesn't live in town and we know how to care for a pool so it wasn't a big deal for us but it would be intimidating to someone less familiar with pools. Overall this property was a great stay and we will stay here again if we choose clearwater again!
Muhamed was an excellent host, and was very responsive. Island Charm is a lovely home, and is well equipped with pool toys, a canoe, full kitchen, washer/dryer and extra towels. The pool was refreshing, and a great addition to the house. It is a very short distance to North Beach at Clearwater, which is very quiet and clean, and in my opinion the best beach on the island.
