“Nice, roomy house near Clearwater Beach”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2016

We rented from Linda during Spring Break week, 2016. House is very nice and fully furnished. We were able to use the pool, patio, and charcoal grill once when nearby family visited and spent the rest of the trip at Clearwater beach or other nearby beaches. Linda was pleasant to rent from and responsive to our inquiries. The house itself is pretty roomy - we had 2 couples in their own queens-size beds, with a grandma & niece sharing the room with twin beds, and a small child on the pullout futon (there was also another pullout couch in the sunroom that we did not use). In addition to the main bathroom near 2 bedrooms, the 3rd bedroom has its own separate bathroom (note that this bathroom is extremely tiny, more of an older home layout style; the main bathroom is roomy enough). It was nice being able to retreat to a quite neighborhood house at the end of the day. Only downside is since not on the beach and spring break, there is a slow crawl to the beach as everyone is coming in at the same time and trying to find parking. Otherwise, I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Linda again - she provides a nice place and you'll have a great time.

“Perfect Home”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2015

The owner was so helpful and friendly. The house was very clean and ready for us when we got there. It was the perfect location for what we came to Clearwater for. We were only 4 miles from our destination each day and only about 7 miles to the beach.

“Holiday Family Vacation”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

My family & I went to Clear Water ,FL. from Dec. 23-Jan.2 .to visit family in Dunedin FL. for the holidays.This was a perfect location for us , 5 min from family & 10 min. from the beach. We had a group of 9 and my kids ages range fro 17 to 26 so the area was ideal with fast food near by and stores.Also with some staying different nights by relatives in Dunedin. The house was big enough with all of us & extended family to have cook outs a couple of days & play games yet being a quiet neighborhood when I wanted to relax .The house was well cleaned with very comfortable beds which is important to me because I spend allot of time living out of hotels in my line of work , so also was the privacy of a house. The next time I visit family there I will rent this house again but maybe leave the kids behind .LOL !!

Owner's reply: Thanks, Paul. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! I look forward to your next visit.

Our stay at Tropical Haven was perfect! The home was very clean and spacious. We absolutely loved the pool and used it everyday. We stayed for a week while our daughter participated in 18U Gold national softball tournament, the location of the home to the softball fields where within 5 mins. which made it so nice for us. The beach was within 5-10 min drive from the home, and the beaches in Clearwater were to die for! Beautiful!! The home was very well maintained, amenities were stocked well and Linda was attentive to all our needs anytime we contacted her. We will definitely love to stay here again when we return to Florida, and would recommend this property to all our friends.

We'll be back to Tropical Haven-Fabulous place!
Left on 07/05/2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is the first house rental we've ever had and we were so pleased when we entered into Tropical Haven. Our first observation was how spacious it was followed by the cleanliness of everything. Our daughter quickly spotted the snacks left on the coffee table for us. There were only three of us staying there so it was much bigger then we needed but the extra space was just like being at home. The beds were so comfortable that it made us go to the store as soon as we returned home to buy ourselves a new mattress.

The items in the house were all available to use from the condiments in the fridge, the collection of movies, the pool toys to the grill on the back porch by the pool. There is even hairdryers, irons, etc. that can be used which is nice as well.

The neighborhood is very quiet as we rarely even saw anyone. My husband went to the bagel shop around the corner every morning to buy us bagels and coffee and we enjoyed them outside by the pool listening to the birds chirp while enjoying all the tropical foliage that surrounded the property. It was very beautiful and relaxing.

The location is a very close to Clearwater Beach which we visited Winter the dolphin, Treasure Island to go para-sailing, Dunedin to go jet skiing, Tampa to go to the Tropical Smoothie Café, and Orlando to go to Discovery Cove (highly recommended), Epcot, and Sea World just to name some of the nearby places we visited.

The price was very affordable. We compared staying at a hotel for a week or staying at Tropical Haven and the price really was comparable.

Linda was so wonderful to work with. She was quick to answer any questions we had before or during our stay. She called us when we got there to make sure we safely arrived and called back again to tell us of her favorite places in the area we might want to check out. The next time we are in the area we definitely will be calling Linda up to stay here.

Tropical Haven is well worth it!!

Fantastic vacation house!
Left on 04/04/2013 for a stay in March 2013

We spent the best four week vacation traveling through Florida with our two little daughters (1 and 5 years old). Best part of it was our stay in Clearwater. Tropical Haven was relaxing and perfectly placed for our multiple plans: BBQ by the pool, stay at the beach and visit attractions.

First of all - the beach is a really short drive away (5-10 minuts) and it's awesome! The best sand I've seen in a long time :) It's clean and there are sunbeds and sun shades available to rent. Sunset from the Pier 60 is breathtaking!

During our stay we managed to drive to Disnay's Magic Kingdom, Orlando Sea World, Busch Gardens, Legoland, Salvador Dali Museum and Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral. It was great to wake up in the morning, have breakfast and spontaniously head to the chosen location which is within 1-2 hours drive from the house. We were even lucky enough to see the rocket launch at KSC and go to the Strawberry Festival near Tampa!! Awesome!

The house is big and spacious. Actually it was even bigger than we needed, which was great for the kids. We spent most time in the patio room with the view on the pool. It's sort of a family room with games you can play, watch the TV, check out internet (there is wifi) or just hang out.

Back patio was more than we expected: green, flowery and full of friendly geckos, birds and squirrels. It wasn't warm enough to swim in the pool as much as we would like to, but we had a great time with the BBQ! The pool itself is big and clean so whenever the temperature got up, we were in :)

The kitchen had all we needed and with a nearby Publix we were able to have some meals at the house. At the same time there are so many restaurants nearby that anytime we didn't feel like cooking we could just eat out. Overall, I would highly recommend Tropical Haven as a perfect vacation house.

Above all, Linda was a great person to deal with!

Wonderful Vacation Home!
Left on 06/25/2012 for a stay in March 2012

Planned a last minute get away and we were thrilled! We had never rented a home before and had always stayed at hotels. Linda was awesome to deal with! We were nervous about trying something like this but would never hesitate again! Would love to go back again and stay. This home was close to all of the Spring Training baseball and so close to the most amazing beach! We enjoyed the house, it was quite spacious and suited our needs perfectly. We loved being able to go for a swim in the backyard every morning and evening after a long day taking in the sites. You won't regret staying here!

Enjoyable !! Relaxing!! Tropical Pleasure !!
Left on 04/17/2012 for a stay in March 2012

I would like to start off by saying this was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations that my family and I have had in awhile.

The location was perfect!! Not far from the beach; we all enjoyed being so close.

We were able to catch a few games of the Philadelphia Phillies & Toronto Blue Jays as both have their spring training stadiums within a few miles of the house.

We also were able to visit the aquarium where my son really wanted to see "Winter" the dolphin from the movie "Dolphin's Tale"

The house was much bigger than expected, with so many rooms, the kids were able to play on their own. Their favorite room was the Sun/Garden room that leads out to the patio and the pool, yes especially the pool. We liked the style and colors of the décor, very luxurious yet comfortable.

The Den/Office with wifi was exactly what I needed, spacious relaxing and the ability to close the doors from all distractions to get some work done that I had brought with me.

Back patio was beautiful and lush green with a large pool, so nice to swim in the morning. We would enjoy this scenery throughout the day, especially at breakfast or a dinner with the BBQ.

Last of all I have to say the price was extremely worth it and cost effective. We were able to utilize the kitchen most of the time and save on eating out. With all the amenities available to us we were able to relax with ease and enjoy our vacation as a family.

Thank you to the owner.

We had a lot of fun!!

I would highly recommend to anyone for their next vacation or getaway to use this tropical haven.

This house was an ideal spot for our vacation !!
Left on 04/17/2012 for a stay in March 2012

We really enjoyed having the pool to swim in and relax by each day.The house was close and convenient to so many things that we wanted to do, whether it was going to the beach, biking, golfing, sailing, fishing, a day trip to Disneyworld, or just enjoying the Florida weather. I loved being surrounded by all the tropical plants and aromas.


This place was a great deal and we had a fantastic time !! I would definitely go back!
