About Laurie Cardwell

Alex and I, Laurie, are from Calgary, Alberta Canada. We both fell in love with Florida, the Gulf side, during a vacation in 2009. We loved the endless beaches and soft white sand. All it takes is a drive down Gulf Boulevard and you will be sold. Lots of road-side pubs and interesting, warm people. It is beach life at its best.

Laurie Cardwell purchased this condo in 2010

Why Laurie Cardwell chose Clearwater Area

We purchased 14C in the summer of 2010, and we've never looked back. We love our time there. It's our home away from home and hope that you'll feel the same.

What makes this condo unique

The condos are on the western side of Sand Key, only about 2 miles south of Clearwater Beach and less than a mile south of Sand Key Park. Crescent Beach club is just a half a mile south of The Shoppes at Sand Key which offers dining, shopping, snacks and boutique shops for your entertainment. Crescent Beach Club is located right on Gulf Boulevard with access to the Jolley Trolley almost right on the door step. It provides transportation from Clearwater to Passe-a-Grille.

We enjoyed our Florida Sand Key vacation very much. Your unit 14C was a delightful home away from home with all the amenities needed. We look forward to coming back again next year. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Wonderful location and well kept home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I especially loved the location. The condo was well kept, clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful two week stay. Restaurants to try that we could walk to and very good were Columbia, Backwaters and the one in the Marriotte hotel. I would recommend this property to a friend. Thank you Laurie!

Indian Shores

One of the BEST in the Clearwater Beach Area!

  • 5 of 5

I have held a private residence in Florida for over 30 years. When I want to spend time at the Beach, THIS is it! There is nothing that you would seek in comfort, convenience, price or security that this condo does not offer. The entire experience is relaxing and blesses you with every positive aspect of being 'at the Beach'. When I go to the Beach - THIS is it!

Absolutely Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely AMAZING! The view of ocean is awesome and it feels so majestic being so high up yet you can hear the waves as you sit on the balcony. Another great thing about this place is the glass on the balcony. Many oceanfront condos have metal railing and when you sit on the balcony to relax, you look through the railing. Here you can sit back and still see the ocean, which I have enjoyed while working. There are many amenities as well from tennis courts, to the hot tub under the stars and many restaurants close by. I have seen many condos on Sand Key and you can't beat this one's view or being able to relax on the balcony. It is amazing!!!! Also this beach is more private so its not crowded like Clearwater, it's really quiet and so relaxing!

Traumhafte Tage direkt am Golf

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung, für 2 Personen ausgelegt, war mehr als ausreichend und hat einen schönen großen Balkon mit traumhaftem Blick auf den Golf v.M. Geniale Sonnenuntergänge garantiert. Zudem ist sie sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, sodass man sich direkt, wie zu Hause fühlt. Die Kontaktaufnahme mit den Vermietern war ganz unkompliziert. Das Objekt liegt sehr ruhig mit Privatstrandflair, wer seine Ruhe haben möchte, aber doch recht zentral, für denjenigen, der etwas erleben möchte. Der Beachwalk mit Sunset-Animationen an der Clearwater Beach mit Pier 60, ist problemlos mit Bus oder Trolly zu erreichen; Bushaltestelle direkt "vor der Haustür". Von hier aus kann man auch Excursionen an die südlichen Beaches, wie Madeira Beach, Indian Rocks Beach, Treasure Island oder St.Pete Beach, starten. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Our condo is located on Florida’s west coast, this tropical paradise with stunning white beaches and aquamarine waters.

Explore the Gulf of Mexico or Intracoastal waterway with a fishing charter, boat rental, parasailing adventure, pirate cruise, dolphin-watching tour, or sunset cruise, all available for rent in Clearwater Beach, just over the bridge.

Once you're back on land, The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is available to provide information on what you’ve just seen, while local shopping and culture abound at Pier 60, where local artists and musicians invite you to relax by the water or dance the night away.

Busch Gardens, Tampa Bay is also just a 45 minute drive, filled with exotic animals and wild rides, the theme park boasts an engaging African theme. The Lowry Park Zoo, meanwhile, offers a more conventional excursion. And if you need to cool off while sightseeing, stop by Adventure Island, a water theme park with dozens of thrilling rides. Nearby, Legends Field plays host to the New York Yankees spring training. Or watch the Tampa Bay Lightening at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in downtown Tampa. To get in on the action, schedule a round of golf at one of the area’s numerous premier courses.

For a different type of entertainment, mix and mingle in St. Petersburg. Known as “The City of the Arts,” the city’s downtown is home to six museums as well as live entertainment venues and over two dozen art galleries.
