About Elizabeth N Flanagan

I am an original snowbird of Clearwater Beach since childhood, retired Community Health Nurse, divorced mother/grandmother. Clearwater Beach is my lifetime joy and second home.

Elizabeth N Flanagan purchased this studio in 2009

Why Elizabeth N Flanagan chose Clearwater Area

It is Olde Florida. It is quaint, friendly, on the Bay one and two and one half blocks to the Gulf of Mexico.

What makes this studio unique

The Coral Resort is a small complex. It has been called 'the friendliest resort on Clearwater Beach'. Guests are always invited to share 'Happy Hour' and to participate in communal dinners on the patio. Friendships are made that are rekindled yearly as many guests enjoy returning yearly.

LE from Woodstock, GA recommends this vacation rental

This is truly an amazing little spot to relax in. The room is perfectly located across from the bay so you can watch the sunrise every morning. It's also about 2 blocks from the beach. Quiet and peaceful. The room is small; it's great for couples. We hope to return again soon!

First time visitors from Ohio. We rented a car...no need. (Only to and from the airport. Waste of money. Hello Uber :) Perfect location. Short walk to the beach, shops, pier, restaurants. Pool is directly outside. Water view is amazing. We loved the restaurants, but, a kitchen and grill?! Go grab some steak, fresh caught fish right around the corner, grill out, save some cash, make it more intimate. Truly the best vacation we ever had.

The condo was clean and quaint. All we needed. Perfect. Owner was a delight. Spoke with me personally on the phone. Office staff was very nice. I can't say enough. This is a steal of a deal.

A home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Coral Reef Reaort was just as expected. The management and owner were very hospitable and accommodating. This was our second time staying the the Coral Reef and it was just as pleasant the second time around as it was the first. The beach is literally a few minutes (walk) from the resort and you are also surrounded by great places to eat and shop. Very family friendly. We will continue to book our stay the the Coral Reef when we visit Clearwater Beach.

Enjoyed the decor and amenities, but the carpet needed cleaning and the dish washing liquid was obviously 'watered down'.

Owner's Response: Both issues brought up by this guest have been discussed with the management of the Coral Resort and have been satisfactorily resolved.

Great first family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip away with a baby and it was absolutely perfect. The condo had everything we needed; it easy to be away from home. The location was perfect- walking distance to the beaches and shop, but just far enough away that we could go back to the room and relax away from the busy strip. Plus we got to watch dolphins from the pier!

Everyone at the resort was very friendly and welcoming.

The condo was exactly as described..."a little bit of heaven". We had the most relaxing vacation ever. The location of the condo is ideal. The staff is friendly. Everything you need is included within the unit, thick towels, all cooking utensils and even including beach chairs and a cooler! The lighting is very cool and unique. The pool is wonderful, crystal clean. We will be back, the owner is very prompt at returning emails and we have never met her but I can call her a friend.
