About Tim

Heather and I live in nearby Tampa and love the Florida lifestyle. Since we moved to the area in 2004, we had dreamed of buying a place at the beach. In 2009, after researching the vacation rental idea, we had an opportunity to make our dream come true and we jumped at it!

Tim purchased this condo in 2009

Why Tim chose Clearwater Area

Clearwater Beach is simply the best place to vacation in the area. We fell in love with Harborview Grande because of its central location, the floor layout, and the well-maintained building. Constructed in 2006, it is still like new. For the past 4 years, I (Tim) have served on the Harborview Grande Board of Directors, ensuring that the property remains the jewel of Clearwater Beach.

What makes this condo unique

This is our second home, and a place we love to share with our new friends. We believe you will agree with our many other satisfied guests that we have created an island retreat that will carry you away from the troubles of this world and provide you a sanctuary you will remember fondly!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so happy we found your condo on the HomeAway web site. We have always stayed in homes, but your place looked so nice we thought we would give it a try! The pictures online do not do justice on how beautiful your condo is! You have it decorated so beautifully and it is immaculately clean. The views are awesome and we finally saw 2 dolphins swim up to the docks on New Year's Eve. Thank you for recommending the Manatee viewing! Our kids loved that! If we ever come back to Clearwater we would definitely stay here and we would definitely recommend your place to friends and family. It truly felt like we were staying at a friend's house here! God bless you and your family and all the best to you in 2010!

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay here. As always, the condo was in immaculate condition. Tim & Heather go above and beyond for their guests. They allowed us to add an additional nights stay at the last minute because our AC at home was out. You will not find a cleaner, more well stocked property. Within walking distance to nearly everything. Our three year old called it her "new house" all week. Can't wait to come back!

We stayed at the condo in mid-August 2016. The condo is beautiful, spacious, clean, and perfectly furnished! The views of the bay from the private balcony are breathtaking! We were lucky enough to watch Dolphins from the balcony! The condo is in walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shops, Pier 60, and so much more! This was my first experience with Home Away and Tim made the process so easy! We highly recommend Tim and Heather's condo and we plan on renting from them again in the near future! Thank you!!

We LOVED this condo! Very spacious, clean, and has everything you need and more! View was gorgeous with dolphin sightings off balcony daily. Close walk to everything you need...restaurants, pier 60, and shops. Tim allowed us to check in early and was extremely accommodating and helpful. We will stay here again!

My family of six stayed in this condo for a week in June, 2016. The condo is more beautiful than pictured, so clean, so spacious, and so beautifully furnished. I was totally unexpected for how well it was equipped, we did not want for anything. Very different experience from any other condo we've stayed at. The owner was awesome too! We had an unfortunate experience the day we were checking out, one in the party was admitted to hospital. Unfortunately the condo was booked by another party that afternoon. The owner was so kind to search nearby hotels for vacancies and got back to us with names and prices! That was service! Can't go wrong booking Tim's condo, would definitely stay again!!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth time my husband and I have rented Tim and Heather Swett's condo in Clearwater Beach. We have never been disappointed. The condo is always extremely clean, furnishings are of good quality, and everything you could possibly need provided! We love the location and walk to the beach each day, as well as to restaurants. We have traveled and vacationed all over Florida, but always come back to Clearwater Beach and for the past several years, this particular rental. Any needs or issues you might have will be quickly addressed. For example, this summer we had a minor issue with the internet. Heather contacted the service provider and had a technician come make the needed repair immediately. They are simply the best folks from whom to rent, and we will never use anyone else! Thank you Tim and Heather for yet another great vacation! :)
