Why Stephanie Marsch chose Clearwater Area

Dockside Condos are a little known secret to most Clearwater Beach visitors. Awesome views of the intra coastal waters right in front of your unit! Clearwater Beach is only 1 1/2 blocks away. Relax and watch the amazing sunrises and water activities right outside your door!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Dockside is a wonderful place to stay. Very clean, new appliances including washer and dryer in the unit. The views of the inland waters while preparing dinner or the ocean views from our corner balcony were absolutely amazing. Watched dolphins from our front deck. Having the two bathrooms was a plus when the kids were here we could all get ready without having to wait for each other. Walking distance to Clearwater beach or the Pool if we wanted more privacy. Everything was within walking distance didn't have to pay or drive around looking for parking!

Beautiful condo with many amenities and in walking distance to shops and restaurants!

  • 4 of 5

Dockside 501 was exactly as the pictures showed. Beautifully decorated and spacious condo. Well maintained and very clean. Nicely stocked with cleaning supplies, kitchen needs, linens & towels, hair dryer,, ironing board w/iron. Also supplied with 4 beach chairs, cooler w/wheels, 3 beach towels, sand bucket & shovel and inflatables for small children . Being an end unit the master bedroom has a walk out balcony to sit and relax on and watch the activity below. Or sit and enjoy the quite view of the bay outside the front door. Elevator is centrally located but we took the stairs a lot which was right on the corner and allowed us to get in extra steps for the day and we didn't have people walking past. The white sandy beach is in walking distance along with shops and restaurants. No need to drive anywhere, except to the grocery store and even fir that you can take the public trolly. If seafood is your delight I would definitely recommend the buffet at Shepards! A few minutes from the condo. I'm typically not into buffets but this is well worth it along with dining outside during the sun setting. As far as dealing with the owner, Stephanie was wonderful to correspond with. Very prompt in returning emails and addressing any questions. Would definitely return to Clearwater Beach in the future and to this unit. Highly recommend!!

This place was amazing. It had everything a home needs from cooking utensils to spices to pool toys. I've recommend this condo to everyone I know. This was the most enjoyable vacation my family has ever taken. Much needed quality time was spent together. This condo had the perfect location and we were able to walk everywhere.

I have found my dream vacation each year.

The owner of this condo has supplied it and decorated above what my family ever excepted.

Truly an unforgettable vacation.

Beautiful condo and really close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a little over a month here and it was perfect. We saw sunrises most mornings and walked over to the beach for the sunsets. We also loved seeing all the dolphins. This condo is close to everything. We walked almost everyday. Parking was free here too. Nice restaurants are close. Several little beach shops are close too.

The condo was great. The beds were comfortable. The other furniture was nice too. There were a lot of towels and plenty of dishes and glassware and cooking pans. Not cheap plastic stuff either.

It is bright and clean and you get a real beach feel as soon as you walk inside. It is a great place for a vacation. We also liked the fact that you didn't have to remember to carry a key with you because the door had a code you enter to get in. They have sand chairs and even a few beach toys. Also had a wheeled cooler that we filled up with drinks and food and took to the beach.

The owner was wonderful. She really cared about trying to make sure we were happy and answered our questions quickly. She did supply a lot of information to us too about the condo and the area.

We recommend this place to all our family and friends and can't wait to go back next year.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful condo and we had the best time.

It was better than the pictures-which we thought were pretty great.

The waterfront right outside the window was great. We saw dolphins almost every day!

The condo was well stocked and we needed nothing. We even had extra blankets. Loved the beach chairs and sand toys. Even beach towels were here!

The washer and dryer made packing light very easy!

Nice to go home with clean clothes too.

We walked to the beach, restaurants and the pier and it was fast to everywhere. This location is so close to the beach.

Owner was great. She responded to every question and sent us great information about the area and the unit.

We would definately stay here again and have told friends about it too!

Great place to stay in Clearwater

  • 5 of 5

We were down in Clearwater for 8 days and really enjoyed staying at Dockside. The condo has all of the comforts of home and is within a short walking distance of multiple restaurants, the beach and shopping. Having a full kitchen saved us money as we were able to go shopping and prepare meals instead of eating out all of the time. There is plenty of space in the condo (though we only had two people) and the AC was always a welcome relief after spending long days out in the 90 degree sunshine.

Stephanie is a great hostess – very communicative and she provides a ton of information on things to do and see in the Clearwater area.

We’d definitely stay there again!

The perfect place!!Views Views Views!!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our family vacation. There were 6 of us and our miniature schnauzer. The location was perfect! Everything you need is within walking distance, when we vacation we are always on the go so we couldn't have picked a better spot. The condo is beautiful and offers everything you need.The kitchen is fully equipped.There is information inside the condo for entertainment and restaurants all around you.The views are amazing! We found ourselves relaxing for hours on the balconies watching everything around us including the dolphins, manatee,and other fish.This unit provided perfect views for the July 4th firework show, just grab a seat on the balcony or at the dining room table inside and you were good to go.We didn't have any problems with the unit.Being on the 5th floor i was worried about walking our dog but it never was an issue.I have a fear of heights so at first i thought that might be a problem for me but was surprised that the views will pull you out on the balconies which is something i never do. If you have a person with disabilities they have elevators and the condo has plenty of room to move around in. We ate at The brown boxer( there are 2 of them we ate at both) Crabby's beachwalk bar and grill, Post corner pizza, McDonald's for the kids no complaints on any of them. There is a publix if you choose to cook your own meals and it's a short drive away. You will not regret your stay here. Loved it!!

Seldom a need to drive anywhere! Restaurants and shopping closely. Trolly stop close too.
