We had a wonderful time at this extremely charming apartment! We were able to easily get into the house and had excellent communication before and during our stay. The tastefully decorated space was ample for our family and the kitchen saved so much money allowing us to easily eat in with all the amenities of home! A short drive to Clearwater and Sand Key beaches and plenty of access to public transportation to skip on beach parking. Honestly can't say enough good - clean, comfortable and relaxing - everything we were looking for in our family vacation!
We were pleased with our stay here. The apartment was old, but very clean and well equipped. We arrived very late and Donna was there to meet us and give us a quick tour of the apartment. She was pleasant and very helpful during out stay.
The host Donna contacted us a couple of days before our arrival to inform us that she wouldn't be at the house once we would arrive. She left us detailed information on where to find the key and it worked perfect.
We were with 3 guys and the apartment was just perfect. We all had a private bedroom and the beds were nice. Even though the house looks a bit old on the outside the conditions inside are fine. The climate control works appropriately, the bathroom and kitchen are both clean and totally functional. And the TV with Netflix was a success during our first few days as it was raining.
Unfortunately if you want to dine inside with more than 4 people the table is too small, but for us it was no problem. Towels, beachtowels, beachchairs and coolers were available even though we didn't use them. The area is quiet and safe even though the looks might predict something else.
We found that Clearwater Beach was further than expected, about 20 minutes by bike and walking would take up to 45 minutes. By car it only takes 10-15 minutes but I guess parking could be expensive and finding a cheap place would not be easy.
Back to the apartment then. The inside of the apartment is clean, to some it might look outdated but to us it felt really 'beachy'. The trees outside provide enough shade to keep the apartment cool. I guess the stairs leading to the front door could be a problem for people that aren't that flexible.
All in all a very satisfying stay.
We really enjoyed our stay and the apartments was as advertised. It is older, but was clean. Donna was helpful and let us know we could take chairs they had to the beach which we did. It was close to Coachman park and we were able to walk there for the 4th of July celebration and it would have been great if Mother Nature did not intervene with fireworks of its own (lightning storm). We did actually walk down to the boat dock a couple of blocks away after the storm cleared and enjoyed the fireworks from there. Would definitely consider again if we ever needed a place when visiting Clearwater again.
We were very pleased with our experience. We were visiting with 4 kids and were able to put two in each bedroom because of the twin beds. The boys enjoyed being able to use the shelving on the beds for their stuffed animals while the girls enjoyed having a small loveseat & desk to sit at to read their books. The master bedroom was a great size with a loveseat as well. It was nice to be able to sleep while my husband stayed up to read. All my kids & husband were able to access the internet easily with much less lag than our own internet. It was great to have toiletries included and even basic pantry items. We would definitely stay here again if the opportunity arose. And finally, the property manager was extremely welcoming, helpful, and more than willing to help with any of our needs.
This was a great location for a family get together and the host was very pleasant and went out of the way to make us feel comfortable and answer any questions. We had the upstairs unit with 3 bedrooms and that met our needs perfectly. Thanks again!
My family visited Clearwater to attend my niece’s graduation but we also wanted to explore the beaches & local dining. This apartment was perfect for our needs—close enough to both Dunedin & Clearwater that we could gather with family and enjoy the local micro-breweries & restaurants, but also allowed easy access to the beaches. As others have commented, the place has vintage charm and all the practicalities one needs. We cooked breakfast on the beautiful stainless stove, took advantage of the convenient washer/dryer, & stayed cool and comfortable at Sand Key with Donna’s new beach umbrellas and chairs. We were very happy here, & we can’t thank Donna enough for her gracious welcome & hospitality.

About the Host, Kathleen And Nick
What inspires me? Loving-kindness.
When I'm not at my day job, I try to make each moment count.
I like: Loved ones, meditation, yoga, cool shade on sunny beaches with turquoise-colored warm water.
I dislike: Cruelty, racism, abuse, intolerance.
My favorite city is Cape Town, South Africa — with the legendary Table Mountain as a backdrop, and surrounded by two oceans (Atlantic and Indian), it is one of the most stunning cities you can ever see!
