Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Clearwater Beach - Cyprus Beach Retreat

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Recently redecorated with personality and charm, this family friendly house has a fully equipped galley style kitchen with table seating for 8. Games, books, movies and music all available for your entertainment. Three cable TV's allow for different choices among the guests, young and old.

The front patio, nestled under the umbrella of a Live Oak tree, is the perfect gathering spot for parties or outdoor eating. Plenty of chairs and side tables.

Our vacation house is conveniently located just a short 2 minute walk to the soft white sands of the Bay Areas most famous beach. Also within easy walking distance are the beach shops, restaurants, public pool, tennis and basketball courts, the community center, a playground and the beautiful Chapel By The Sea. Stroll down the beach to Pier 60 where you'll find a festival every night. A great place to take the kids!

Don't feel like walking? No problem. Just hop on the Jolley Trolley or ride one of our two bicycles anywhere on the beach.

About Bobbie Hanscel

For almost fifty years our family has enjoyed the Clearwater Beach life. The easy, laid back atmosphere, white sandy beaches and many activities have drawn us back time after time with our children and grandchildren. When our Mom, who was living there at the time, moved back to Ohio, we decided to redecorate and share this wonderful beach house with others.

Bobbie Hanscel purchased this house in 1960

What makes this house unique

Our Cyprus Ave house is on a quiet side street only a few blocks from the beach ... an easy walk for children and adults. For your convenience, you'll find that a lot of the start up item you need to begin your vacation, such as paper products, soap, coffee filters, are already there at the house.

Excellent Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month in July, and it was great. The location cannot be beat if you want to be near a beach. The owner was responsive, and the price was very reasonable.

Great place for a family or couples

  • 5 of 5

We stayed her for a week and with our two children 14 & 11, and we loved it. It has everything you need. Short walk to the beach, we walked down to the Pier just about every night. Beds were comfy and the whole house felt like you were at home. The owner is great to work with, answer all our questions. We did not want to return to IL, but life must go on. Thanks Barbara will defiantly rent again the next time we visit Clearwater Beach.

The most perfect, clean, accommodating family friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using this site and renting a beach home. Barbara was so helpful, friendly and patient throughout this whole process. When we arrived my family and I were just amazed by how gorgeous the house was and by how clean and spacious it was. The home has everything you could need or want. Perfect location and minutes walk from the beach, beach walk and great restaurants/bars.We loved everything about this home and its location. My family and I did not want to leave! We look forward to creating more fun and happy memories in this home. If you're looking for a place close to the beach, family friendly, clean and spacious...this is the home for you! Thanks again Barbara.

Great family beach stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for two weeks with our three teenage kids and found it delightful! We even had a couple join us one night and everyone fit fine! Place was comfy and well-stocked with everything you could need! Great front patio for relaxing. Short walk to Palm Pavilion area of beach. There's also a public pool at the end of the block. Frenchy's beachfront restaurant is fun, Bob Heilman's Beachcomber is a nice place for a meal. Cooter's has AYCE crab legs! Beds were comfy, atmosphere was nice. Would definitely recommend this for a fun beach getaway! The owner was great to work with, very communicative and responsive! We left some clothes there and she contacted us right away. Would definitely go back!

perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little home for our Clearwater vacation. Location was ideal for our needs - only 2 streets away from the beach. Public pool and tennis courts as well as a library right on the corner.

House was clean, beds & pillows were comfortable. Plenty of towels for bath & beach. Nothing missing - fully equipped kitchen, all the utensils and small appliances you need. Plenty of beach materials as well; beach umbrella, chairs, floating devices, beach toys - name it, they had it. Beach was beautiful and not too crowded & not too close to the big hotel scene.

Overall; Our party of 5 had a great time. House exceeded my expectations - I don't think the pictures do justice to how pretty this little spot is. Great location & great value. I have already recommended this home to friends. And I would return.

Thank you Bobbie for responding to my questions so quickly!

Wonderful beach house in Clearwater.

  • 5 of 5

Had the best time of our lives. House was great. Location was awesome. Very short walk to beach. Conviently located for shopping, eating, or just enjoying the beach. Great for family memeories to be made. My family and I will be going back many more times. We all loved it and didn't wanna leave. House had comfortable beds, nice patio, and was very clean. Spent a month there and going back next year for sure. Recommend this place for anyone who loves white sand, beautiful sunsets, and water. Owner's were great and answered all questions very quickly. LOVED IT!!!!
