Date of Stay
August 9, 2014

We rented the townhouse the 2nd week of August. The group consisted of my wife and I and our 4 kids (ages 12 to 21), plus my daughter's boyfriend. We invited my 88 year old mother, who lives in the Tampa area, and is legally blind and has difficulty getting around due to arthritis, to come and spend the week with us. We have been coming down to the Tampa area beaches once or twice a year for 15 years to visit family, and this is the nicest place we have ever rented. The beach here is ideal because the water is not too far from the house (further south in Treasure Island we found the beaches to be very wide, and the walk to the water is much further), and yet the house has a picturesque sand dune barrier with beach grasses right off the patio. It is the best of both worlds. It is also nice to not be in an area with a lot of high rise condos. It was almost like having a private beach! Also having the pool right there is a great convenience. We found ourselves alternating between the beach and the pool a few times a day. The patio areas and perimeter of the pool are great because there are so many areas to sit. At different points in the day, we could sit in the sun or the shade depending on whether we wanted to be in the sun or not. Inside the house everything was clean and luxurious with flat screen TVs in many of the rooms, nice furnishings, and the view of the beach from the living room, dining room and patio is incredible. We never grew tired of just sitting there watching the surf. And the sunsets over the Gulf were surreal. It you are looking for place to relax, this is it. There was plenty of room inside and outside for all of us, and we never even used the luxurious efficiency apartment over the garage that sleeps 6. Finally, it is centrally located, so we found it easy to get to shopping, restaurants, and even an LA Fitness health club we joined for the week. We all had a great time, and my mother said it was the best vacation she has ever had. It was very difficult to leave, and we hope to be back next year.

Thank you for the wonderful description of the house, pool, patio and beach. It is sublime. The sunsets are gorgeous. I am delighted to hear this was the best vacation you, your family and your mother have ever had. I will be looking for you next year at the Belleair Beach House!

Two weeks in luxurious comfort, again.......

Date of Stay
May 31, 2014

My family and I visited this gorgeous property again this year. We have been staying in Belleair Beach for years. Of all the places you can stay, we have. We have stayed at more expensive homes, but this particular property is our all time favorite. We have noticed some obvious changes to the place, new linens, new TV, even a new coffee maker. The house is located perfectly on the beach and you can see the sun set from the pool if you are so inclined, as I am. The owners obviously take the feedback provided from these reviews seriously and act on the ones that will be helpful to all guests unlike some of the Belleair Beach slumlords who charge an arm and two legs for a beat up unit that generates an income stream. THESE OWNERS CARE ABOUT YOUR VACATION. They have a staff of people that make sure all of your needs are met (within reason) and the issues you might have are addressed promptly. We needed the pool cleaned after a particularly ugly rainstorm with high winds that blew some debris into the water and it was sparkling clean the next morning in time for my daughter's swimming lesson. There are some not so obvious additions as well. New flooring, some new pieces of kitchenware to make cooking during your stay easier, and directions for everything electronic. If you rent here and can't figure something out, there are printed instructions so this should never be a problem. Also, the apartment above the garage is wonderful as well. It has been completely redone and I would be happy to sleep there, but we bring our nanny and she is extremely comfortable residing there for two weeks. The other nice feature is that the Publix grocery is just across the causeway which makes going to the store an easy trip with a great view of the ICW from atop the causeway bridge. We like staying at the Four Seasons wherever we go, but our choice of destinations has been the beautiful and private playground called Belleaire Beach. We have stayed at just about every rental on the beach and I can say this is the place my family wants to return to year after year. If you want to try other places, go ahead and waste your money. If you want a great, luxurious and fun vacation for you and your family, this is the place. Forget Maui, you can meet me on Belleaire Beach in June 2015, at this property again. You can spend more, but you will not get the experience and relaxation that vacationing here brings.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! This is an amazing Review and I am truly appreciative for your very honest and heartfelt comments. I certainly have enjoyed getting to know you as you have visited the past 3 years and always love having you and your family return. We have had a lot of wonderful conversations. I always appreciate your input. It helps me keep the house in top condition. I have mental pictures of you relaxing with your cigar by the fountain, napping under the palm trees and chasing your beautiful daughter around the beach. I know you have stayed in many homes including both of my neighbors' and it means a lot to me to know that you love mine best. I am always looking for ways to make the vacation experience even better. Watch out! I may have a few new ideas for the coming year. Best, Debra

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your home. It is beautiful, and the beach view is amazing! We enjoyed watching the dolphins in the mornings and the fabulous sunsets in the evening. Our only comment is that the west sun coming in was a little warm while we were watching the US team in the World Cup! But we understand why you don't want to block that amazing view. You were right - Joannie is amazing! She was so nice to let my sister and brother into the apartment early. It was a really long day for them, and it was much appreciated. Thanks for providing such a great home for our family to get together. We created some wonderful memories.

Debra, we would like to thank you for having the Belleair Beach House available to rent. We rent quite a bit from online websites and your place is hands down the best place we have ever rented. The house is very well appointed, everything you need is there including filtered water from the fridge; it was great to not have to purchase bottled water! All the bedrooms were quite large and the beds were very comfortable. The living areas and eating areas were large enough to accommodate all of us and the teenagers really enjoyed the apartment above the garage which is just as nice as the house. I should point out that there were 3 families in this group; 6 adults and 6 kids. Space was never an issue. The best part about your place has to be the private beach, never crowded and perfect views. Your heated pool and patio area would be a close second to the beach area though! We really had a great relaxing week at the Belleair Beach House. Thanks again Debra.

Pete, thank you so much for writing this 5 Star review of my home. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your vacation and found the house to be the best house you have ever rented! Wow! I certainly have tried to make it a comfortable, happy place to make great family memories. The beach is amazing. You can't beat the beautiful, white sand, seashells and sunsets. I love going to bed with the moon light shining into the bedroom. I agree with you that the beds are very comfy. The house offers lots of space to stretch out and relax. Now that you have found the "best vacation house" I hope you will come back soon. Thanks again, Debra

We were a group of four couples who rented this beautiful beachfront house for two weeks for a second consecutive year and we are very much looking forward to a third time in 2015! The owner made several upgrades to the property during the year such as new hardwood floors and a new shower in the apartment. The house was ideal for a group of our size because the open floor plan, which includes a spacious and upscale kitchen, gave us plenty of room in which to move around. The house is located directly on the beach giving the option of sitting on the beach or on the patio to enjoy the Gulf. The fabulous view from the house or patio includes wind surfers, pelicans diving for fish, occasional dolphins going by, sail boats, spectacular sunsets and even the fascinating sight of watching a storm form over the Gulf.

I'm so pleased that you wrote a lovely, detailed Review. Thank you! I'm even more pleased that you have found your home away from home and are returning for a 3rd year - 2 week vacation. I think the new shower turned out nicely and the river rock adds a "beachy" feel to the bathroom. I think the new pots and pans and new dishes are a great touch too. I'm glad you enjoyed the kitchen, the views and another splendid time at the Belleair Beach House. Thanks so much for picking my home!

Luxurious with Excellent Location

Date of Stay November 2, 2013

My husband treated me (our last Gulf House rented was sub-par!) to your beautiful & luxurious vacation home. I was stunned by the beauty of the beach & by watching the sun drop into the ocean at sunset, from our deck --simply breathtaking! Plus, the MA bed is situated to wake up staring at the ocean before you; all you see is ocean - amazing! The house was very clean(a real gold star here), modern & updated utilities, tv, baths, kitchen. The layout was perfect w/ open LR/DR/Kitchen with a eat at bar counter. The furnishings were very tasteful & appealing, unlike alot of FL homes we've been at with very "Floridian" (ie. yard sale-like) decor. The linens were clean, very soft sheets, nice pillows & I have to comment that we found the master bed mattresses extremely comfortable -firm as we like). The kids bunks were loved by them, along with the jacuzzi tub (although apparently the jets are shut off, but they still liked the depth, view & surrounding counter/edge/seat). The outdoor hot tub & pool were stunning. Kitchen very well equipped. 4 bedrooms & 3 baths. Lots of space. Thank you for an incredible experience - we'd love to come back again!

Thank You! What a lovely review. I'm so happy to hear you liked your "treat." Your husband really enjoyed surprising you. You have beautifully described the vacation experience at The Belleair Beach House. I think waking up to that view is the best way you can start your day. It just makes my day. I take my cup of tea and sit out on the patio or the balcony, watch the pelicans fish and, if I'm lucky, I will see the dolphin swim by. You are correct that the jets in the jacuzzi are turned off on purpose. I found too many children filling the bathroom with mounds of bubbles from having put bubble bath in with the jets running - oopsy! I'm not sure I can add more except to say thanks for taking the time to share. Come back soon.

47 years ago the 7 of us met as nursing students. The Bellair Beach Villa was the perfect place for our 'mini reunion', to gather to reminiscence, share pictures of our grandchildren & families, enjoy renewing friendships, relax & celebrate getting our Medicare cards!! Well appointed, clean, perfect location, quiet, ample amenities, well stocked, difficult to figure out coffee maker, comfortable beds, all describe this wonderful property. Beach is just steps away & we had the entire beach to ourselves. Loved having the pool on the shady side of the Villa for a break from the afternoon sun. Gorgeous sunsets viewed from the balconies as well a watching the dolphins. Debra, the owner, quickly responded to initial inquires & follow up emails. Property managers Joanie & George both are very responsive & do a great job. All of us agreed no hesitations in highly recommending this property & hope we can plan another reunion in the near future. Thanks Debra, Joanie & George for making our stay so pleasant & comfortable.

You are very welcome and thank you for such a thoughtful and nice review. What a wonder that you all have been able to vacation for these many years. Hollywood should make a movie called "The Nurses." What a marvelous story it would make. I had written instructions for the coffee maker (must have gone missing - so sorry). Once you get the hag of it, it makes super coffee. It's a little fancy. I probably should have gone with a more simple style. I will replace them right away! I am so pleased you enjoyed your vacation and found the house to your liking. Please come back soon!

Date of Stay September 11, 2013

We arrived at this beautiful vacation home in Belleair Beach after spending the first half of the week in Orlando, 5 days at Disney and Universal Studios. We were more than ready for some beach time and this home was the perfect place to be. We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon and loved the house and grounds at first sight. The pool area and hot tub were wonderful and a great place to hang out with everone. We had (2) babies under a year old and a 3 year old so having the pool close by and all the space the house provided worked perfectly for us. Naps were a breeze as the baby monitors allowed the adults to lounge by the pool when the children were naping. Our 3 year old granddaughter loved playing in the pool and the ocean as did the babies. The beach was a short stroll off the patio. We were in the ocean the 2nd day and suddenly there were 3 dolphins very close by. We were able to just stand in the water and watch them go by. We had excellent pizza one night and also visited a seafood restaurant another night that was close by. The owners provided a book for the house that included any and everything we needed to know. The restaurants we visited were listed in the book. Joanie, the property manager was so wonderful and patience with us when we had questions. Debra, the owner, was very responsive and helpful as well. We would highly recommend this beach home, you won't be disappointed. Our only regret this trip was that we didn't spend the whole week! We hope to return to this lovely home for many years to come. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Thank you so much for the nice review. You had a special treat swimming with the dolphin in front of the house! That must have been an awesome experience. Isn't it great being able to lounge by the pool while the little ones nap. So relaxing. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return. Joanie is the best! She says thanks for the nice compliment. Also, glad you were able to use the information in the Guest Book. I try to add recommendations all the time. Take care and thanks again.

We arrived June 15 and had a WONDERFUL week. The pictures do not do this property justice. It is simply beautiful! We have a large family so it was so wonderful to have plenty of room to socialize, let the kids run around, and also be able to still have privacy. The beach is lovely and having our own private pool was a huge plus. The beach is full of beautiful sea shells. My boys came back with three buckets full! This is prime location for getting out and about. We always stay in this area on vacation and this by far was the best location we have stayed at. Its close to everything! The owners were simply wonderful and so pleasant to work with. Thank you so much for all the work you are putting into your property and for allowing us to be able to stay here and have a wonderful time with our family!!

Date of Stay June 1, 2013

We arrived on June 1st to find one of the most spectacular rental homes I have ever seen. It is more elegant than the description above. It is so spacious and modern. The pool is the largest of all the townhomes. There was plenty of parking for our three vehicles and boat. The beach is wonderful. Just step off the front porch and you are there. The Gulf spreads out in front of you like a dream. Seashells are abundant. My family went a little nuts over all the conchs, whelks, etc. They spent hours picking through them. The children had more than enough to do. They built numerous castles (please fill in all holes because of the sea turtles and their babies) and spent hours playing in the Gulf (weather permitting) and pool. You will have pop up showers, but there are numerous adventures awaiting close by. The Florida Aquarium is a must as well as the Clearwater Aquarium where Winter the dolphin (without a tail) lives. They made a movie about her. It is close to shopping, restaurants, Tampa and Clearwater entertainment. I just want everyone to know this is the place to stay. The property manager was great and met us personally at the home to check us in and show us through it. We even had a sea turtle dig a nest and lay eggs in front of the homes before we left. Go and live your Gulf dream like we did. There was easily room for more people to stay without being on top of each other.

What a lovely review. Thank you so much! I have really enjoyed getting to know you through all our emails. I feel like we have become great friends and I value your opinion and comments about my home. I was so excited to hear about the turtle nest. This is a first for me and it is reported that the babies will hatch in late August or early September. The "Turtle Patrol" checks the nest daily to ensure its safety and has reported all is well. I am hoping for some photos when the babies make their way to the Gulf. You have given a lovely description of the house, beach and all the wonderful possibilities for fun. Thanks so much for visiting and please come back to stay again soon. Keep in touch!

The Best Belleair Has To Offer.......

Date of Stay April 13, 2013

We have stayed at all of the available properties in Belleair Beach. This house has got to be the MOST relaxing, well appointed and easy to use of all. We stayed there when it was owned by people who did not seem to care about the renter's experience. The new owner's have taken a toothbrush to this place and made it an enjoyable, luxurious experience. Everything was clean, new and if it needed instructions to use, they were there too. My keyboard is not behaving so excuse the lack of proper spacing, but let just say, if you are planning a vacation to the Belleair Beach area. This is the place to stay. I know. I have stayed at all of them.

My Response

Thank you so much for the great review and recommendation to others looking for a luxury experience. Since I bought the house, I have been working on it almost every minute that it has not been rented and I have programmed times for the workmen to tackle big jobs like putting in all new floors to replace worn out carpet. I really appreciate your eye for detail. A lot has been accomplished in a short period of time to correct years of deferred maintenance on the part of the former owner. It's a big compliment to know my home holds it's own against other area homes and surpasses them in quality. My goal is to give my guests the best time possible. I look forward to your return in 2014. The toothbrush is never still.

We have been vacationing this area for the last 10 years and I think we have found our favorite spot to stay. The home is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The dolphins swimming by every night makes the sunset a site to see! The home is equipped with comfortable beds & linens, plenty of televisions for the entire family. The property manager and owners were wonderful, easy to communicate with and responsive to emails or phone calls. I will recommend this to others and look forward to returning in the near future The pictures on the listing show the house exactly the way it is... Gorgeous!

Thank you so much for staying with us at the Belleair Beach House! So happy to have you and many thanks for your nice review of our home. The dolphin are incredible and, personally, I love watching the pelicans swoop down out of the beautiful blue sky to catch a fish. What funny, wonderful birds they are. We have news to share ~ this week, we have removed all the carpeting upstairs and on the staircase and replaced it with lovely, new flooring. Always improving for our guests' comfort! New photos will be available in the near future. Fabulous! We had a unique and marvelous experience this week. A Great Egrit adopted us. We named him Spot and he seemed to like it. Spot first came to the kitchen door, landed on the the railing and watched Jim cook breakfast. When we opened the slider, he hopped down by the door and peeped into the house. Jim offered a bit of meat which Spot delicately took from Jim's hand. Each day, Spot returned once or twice to dine with us. This morning while I was sitting on the front patio, Spot flew by and landed next to me. He visited for about 20 minutes, watched me type on my computer and seemed perfectly happy to stand next to me quietly. After a bit, he flew away but, then returned. I left the sliding door open about a foot while carrying my computer inside. When I turned to go close the door, Spot was standing in the living room with me. Surprise! Jim gave him bits of ham ~ his favorite snack ~ and I took lots of great photos. Florida is such a wonderful place to commune with nature and this was the most amazing experience we have had so far. Please do come back soon. We love having our guests return for even more fun and relaxation. Perhaps you will dine with Spot too. Thanks so much!

Wow...the updates and cleanliness were amazing. We were at this same house last year for Spring Break and were very impressed with the new updates this year throughout the house as well as outside. The place is amazing and the views can't be beat. The pool is chilly (not heated but we knew that) but the hot tub can be heated and we definitely used the propane! Well worth it in my opinion. The TV in the living/family room was SO needed and the downstairs bedroom was a welcome improvement from the "den" that it was before. We loved the extra space from the separate apartment as well. Everything in the house was well stocked and clean as could be. Beautiful wide beach...played wiffle ball several times in the evening. Perfect for families of all ages. All in all, this house is a wonderful place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here. Debra, the new owner did an amazing job with communication and was very, very helpful. Would love to come back and make more memories!

Thank you so much for your nice review! It's great to hear from someone who stayed at the Belleair Beach House before and can comment on and appreciate all the improvements, new furnishings, decorations and upgrades I have made. I've done my best to make the property as comfortable and lovely as possible for every guest to enjoy a perfect and relaxing vacation. Thank you for noticing the care given to cleanliness. This is very important to me. I'm sure you saw that I just painted the entire interior. Freshened up everything. My housekeeper is wonderful and takes great care and attention to detail. Thanks again for vacationing at the Belleair Beach House and come back soon!

Fantastic Family Time

Date of Stay March 17, 2013

Recently our family rented this fabulous home as the gathering place for our kids and grand kids to help my husband and me celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Our family had a fantastic time! It was a ideal location - all ages love a beach and we could spend time together having fun - sandcastles, frisbee, flying a kite, appreciating the beauty of a sunset. We hired a photographer to take a family picture and those turned out great. That was the night we saw dolphins. The kids each took a turn planning and cooking a meal (and taking care of cleanup). The home was well equipped and spacious. It was great to be able to spend so much family time together at a beautiful home on a beach!

Happy 40th Anniversary to you both! Well done! I am honored that you chose The Belleair Beach House for such a treasured, family occasion and I am so pleased that you all enjoyed the house, beach and all the amenities. Now that you have found us, I hope you will come back every year for your beach vacation to soak up more fun in the sun, take more photo memories and, of course, watch the dolphin. Thanks so much!

Excellent Location with Private Beach

Date of Stay January 26, 2013

We were four couples sharing a rental for the first time in Florida. What a lovely, beachfront home, beautiful location with private beach. There was plenty of room to enjoy all activities - beach walking, sunbathing, reading, games, movies - and a large dining room with a table to seat twelve. The kitchen was well supplied and it was nice to have a several spices and staples in the pantry as well as containers for leftovers. It was very comfortable and the breakfast bar was a plus as was the wet bar refrigerator. We had a wonderful, relaxing time and found many good restaurants nearby. There was a new clothes washer and dryer in the large laundry room. The apartment over the garage is very spacious, comfortable and bright. Grocery shopping was also convenient. The local property manager was very helpful and quick to respond. We're all looking forward to going again next year.

Thanks for the super review and for booking 2 weeks next year. I am looking forward to your return. You will find more new improvements. This week, I took out all the carpeting in the upstairs bedrooms, hallway and staircase and replaced it with new wood flooring. It's gorgeous! I'm glad you enjoyed the large dining table. I love having everyone gathered together to enjoy a homemade dinner, talk, laugh and share stories. Since you were here in February, I have 4 new upholstered dining chairs at the round table in the bay window. So pretty. I also replaced the kitchen ceiling. Now there is white wood bead board, in-ceiling can lights, a chandelier, dimmers and beautiful crown molding. So many new projects and upgrades have been done to make the home even move lovely. Thanks for mentioning the pantry items and left over containers. We try to think of the little things that make a vacation easy and fun. I do love the huge laundry room. Makes doing laundry a breeze. The temperature has been in the low 80s and we have been swimming in the Gulf everyday this week. Getting a nice tan. Thanks again for choosing the Belleair Beach House. Take care!

A Great Home to entertain a Family Vacation
3000 Gulf Blvd, Belleair Beach, FL, 33786, United States

Date of Stay January 18, 2013

Our family had a wonderful week in a beautiful and spacious home. The new owners are working hard to update and accommodate the needs of each renter. We had a few first timers to Florida and the home, location and beach took their breath away. The home offers such a variety of areas inside or outside for groups to enjoy while sunbathing, playing cards or games. The kitchen was magnificent and offered many updated appliances, and equipped with all the needs for eating in. The seating around the kitchen bar area was great to share in memories and stories while others prepared meals. The new linens, bedding, furniture, and accessories throughout home made it a step above the average. The hot tub was heated by propane so usage was limited. What a gorgeous beach and so close, for searching for that unusual shell(s), jogging, walking, just tossing the Frisbees or football. Sunsets are breathtaking and the moon was bright (beautiful orange) and just as enjoyable.

We are so pleased you enjoyed the house, beach and had a wonderful family vacation. It is so nice to hear that first time Florida visitors loved the Belleair Beach House and the location. There is so much to do around the area if you can tear yourself away from the house, pool and beach. We are working hard to make the house perfect in every way and want it to be enjoyed by all. Thank you for your kind words and please come back soon.

Wow. Wow. What a fabulous place. From the moment we went inside, we were impressed. The cleanliness and decor of the home was excellent. The view is absolutely amazing. We were able to watch the dolphins swim along the shoreline every day, fished (and caught lots) right on the beach, shell hunted two or three times a day, and so much more. Location is excellent as is only a few kilometers from Clearwater, which is full of great shops, restaurants, and The Pier. We recommend this location to any family wanting a great holiday and we hope to return again soon.

We love your WOW! WOW! review. Thanks so much. We are very pleased you enjoyed the Belleair Beach House! We just purchased it in late October and have put a lot of time into renovating and redecorating. The entire Guest Apartment has been refurnished and I think it is charming. Plus, it now has proper beds to enjoy. The former den is now a bedroom with a gorgeous 4 poster King bed. So romantic. Too many other improvements to list but, obviously made for an enjoyable vacation. It is so gratifying to hear your lovely thoughts. The dolphin are a delight to watch and I especially enjoy the pelicans as they swim and fish in front of the house every day. We are so happy you are planning to come back. Thanks again!

Fantastic Family Vacation
3000 Gulf Blvd, Belleair Beach, FL, 33786, United States

Date of Stay December 22, 2012

We found this amazing rental home on-line, close to the Tampa airport and right on the gulf! It looked fantastic, and we all fell in love with it at first sight upon arriving. My husband and I had been searching for a place where our three daughters and their families could all come together with us and share Christmas week under one roof. This home was so spacious and clean, with beautiful art work, an amazing amount of clean and perfectly placed windows, and lovely home furnishings, most of which had a layer of glass on top to prevent worrying about the little ones. The beach was a short minute's walk away from the back patio, and even when we weren't outside, you had the feeling that you were! We had everything and more that we could have needed, including two high chairs for the one-year olds, pack and plays, and ample flatscreens so the various video games could be played in whichever room! The master bedroom and bath were just incredible,complete with a balcony that made you feel as though you were right on the beach! I would not consider renting any other home for my family, whenever we plan another week together. Fantastic shells, for those who love collecting. A whooping crane even paid us two visits in the side area where lovely landscaping surrounded us and the pool and hot tub. I urge any family who has the chance to rent this house. It is definitely a DREAM-COME-TRUE experience!

This review is a the best Christmas gift we could have received! It is wonderful to know that you loved our home as much as we do. You are so right - the view is beyond compare. I too love seeing all the animals - the dolphin, pelicans, shore birds - but never have I had a visit from a whooping crane. What a treat! Thank you for your kind remarks and for sharing your experience with us. Come back soon and bring those babies!

Great Location and Very Spacious.
3000 Gulf Blvd, Belleair Beach, FL, 33786, United States

Date of Stay December 15, 2012

We loved our stay here on Belleair Beach. This townhouse had everything we needed- pool, hot tub, beach, and close to activities. The downstairs has been remodeled very well and all the updates are greatly appreciated. The upstairs' bedrooms are a little outdated- but this is only cosmetic of course. Kitchen was very well stocked. Cable and wireless worked great. We loved the extra seating and large tables for dining and entertaining. Outside, there is a lot of patio room and furniture for relaxing. The side pool, hot tub, and patio do not get any sun during the day in December. So, there is not the opportunity to sub bathe and swim with the warm sun in mild temperatures. The pool's heater is propane and is only supposed to be run minimally which kept us from being able to sustain a warm temperature for the winter vacation. Most of all, I have to rave about the location. It is 2 miles from all Clearwater has to offer. We have stayed in locations such as Longboat Key, Annamaria Island, Fort Myers, and by far, we love the cleanliness and family atmosphere this area has to offer. This house is in a quiet area, but it does not take long to get to dining, stores, or things to do. Owners are very helpful in answering questions. Rental company was very courteous during stay. I would recommend this rental and we hope to be back sometime. Keep up the good work!

You are so right. The location is unbeatable. We love being so proximate to Clearwater, Largo, Tampa and St. Pete Beach for all that the larger towns have to offer, but completely enjoy our quiet privacy at home in Belleair Beach. No high rises or commercial hustle bustle. Lovely, serene beach and family atmosphere here. Thanks for your kind remarks and we are so very happy you enjoyed the townhouse and your vacation. Thanks for booking with us and do come again.

Excellent beachfront vacation condo

Date of Stay November 9, 2012

This rental was fantastic - we were a group of 6 women - age 50+. The condo had every tool and gadget you could possibly ask for in the kitchen. The views were amazing - the beach is RIGHT THERE - literally. We saw dolphins from the deck on more than one day. Speaking of the deck - it's huge, with various seating areas and tons of furniture. Furniture is comfortable and house is stylishly/modernly decorated. Bed linens were nice and new towels were abundant. Baby grand was a bonus, as one person in our party is a pianist, so that was fun to have. Owners were responsive with small questions we had during our stay. Lots of unique shopping in the area - (10 to 20 minute drives.) Rental car recommended, as the shuttle is a bit of a walk. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others. (PS, we were originally looking for a house, vs. a condo - and we have no regrets at all - we didn't even know we had neighbours.)

It was a pleasure meeting you and your girlfriends. We are delighted you enjoyed the house, the beach and your vacation. We try to make our guests as comfortable as possible and having all the little things right at hand goes a long way toward that being at home feeling. Isn't it fun seeing the dolphin? The other day, we saw a ray jump out of the water 8 times. Looked like he was flying! Thanks for staying with us and come back soon!
