Overview

About the property

Don't wait another minute to book this fantastic waterfront 3-bedroom, 2-bath pool home in Clearwater Beach! You'll love its spacious, open floor plan with big views overlooking the heated pool and broad canal beyond. As soon as you walk in the front door, the view will sweep you away with an urge to head outside and enjoy everything Florida has to offer!

Before you do that, be sure to take in the beautifully remodeled eat-in kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertops, and the big living room complete with a dry bar and big flat-panel HD TV. This room is designed for relaxing!

Down the hall you'll find a poolside bedroom with a queen bed, along with a second bedroom with twin beds and a full bath with a combination tub and shower. At the end of the hall is the master bedroom, which features a king bed, en suite bath with both a walk-in shower and a spa tub, direct access to the pool, and striking waterway views.

If you're looking for location, location, location, this property can't be beat! Boaters will love the dock available for their use...bring your own, or rent one while you're here. This deep waterway provides direct access to Clearwater Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Pack your cooler, head out the back door, hop on board your boat tied up at the dock, and take a leisurely cruise up the harbor to Caladesi Island State Park. As one of the few completely natural islands along Florida´s Gulf Coast, Caladesi´s white sand beaches were rated America's Best Beach in 2008. Beach lovers can enjoy swimming, sunbathing and beachcombing, saltwater anglers can cast a line from their boats or surf fish from the beach, and nature enthusiasts can spot wildlife while hiking the three mile nature trail through the island's interior, or paddling a three mile kayak trail through the mangroves and bay.

A little further up the harbor is Honeymoon State Park. Nature lovers will find osprey nests, a wide variety of shorebirds, and one of the few remaining virgin slash pine forests in South Florida. The park boasts several nature trails and bird observation areas. This is another terrific spot to swim, fish, and snorkel in the warm waters of the Gulf. Shelling is particularly good here, as the Gulf currents deposit an incredible variety of seashells on the shore.

Ready for a party? A trip in your boat can also take you down the harbor to the action of Clearwater Beach. Although it's been around for 100 years, Clearwater is an up-to-the-moment year-round destination, offering a seemingly endless supply of entertainment, natural beauty, and outdoor activities both on land and at sea. Enjoy casual and fine dining, vibrant activities and the rich history and heritage of the Gulf Coast, all from your backyard!

Of course, if boating isn't your thing, you'll still enjoy the waterfront pool at your home-away-from-home, and the easy access by bike or on foot to all the fun things to do and beautiful beaches to visit in Clearwater. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Winter the dolphin, is on your route to the beach!

So don't delay...you'll be so glad you booked Island Retreat for your Clearwater vacation!

Very nice, clean and charming home with a wonderful view and pool.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many, many rental homes. My husband and I rate this one among the tops. While we do prefer areas south of Clearwater Beach, the size and great condition of the home were just wonderful.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

First off I want to say that the pictures do don't do justice for the house. We were in need for a place for 40 nights and we originally looked into Hotels but every hotel had a few nights sold out especially during spring break. So I looked on vrbo.com and found this home. The listing agent got back to us promptly. We decided to book based on availability. But let me just say that the listing agent Lori was amazing! She answered our questions and even went above & beyond to tell us about things to do in the area with kids. When arriving to the home it was as simple as they explained in the arrival email. When we walked into the home we were blown away with how comfortable, how clean, how new and how spacious the place was. I was so happy with our decision that I highly recommend the place. There was an issue with the microwave when we were there and the owner had someone out that day to fix it. They responded promptly and everyone we have delt with had great customer service and truly was hospitable. There was everything one could need to vacation there. The bedrooms were great size, the washer & dryers were brand new, & there was everything in the kitchen to cook and eat meals with the family each night. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. I'm hoping to find out what brand because that will be our next purchase when we get back home to AZ. This place is definitely worth staying at. There were no gimmicks or false advertising either. The neighborhood is safe and the neighbors are all nice. We felt comfortable walking to the trolley with our 5 & 3 year old children during the day & at night. The only downfall I have to mention is that if you go downtown or leave the beach area you sit in traffic for a bit on the way back but we never let that effect our day or stay. I hope we get the opportunity to come back to Clearwater again and have the opportunity to rent this property again as well.

We are so glad to have Lori on the BeachRentals team as we strive for top-quality customer service and helpful, quick responses throughout our interactions with guests. Clearwater is a great location for its proximity to the gorgeous beaches, waterway, and so many activities, restaurants, and shops!
