Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Sand Key - "Las Olas"

Impeccable 1bd 1&1/2 bath condo with direct beachfront view

Take a tour of our vacation home, check out the video above.

Gorgeous beachfront condo with amazing views from your over sized 2nd floor balcony. Only two of the one bedroom condos in this building have this extra bonus outdoor space. Floor to ceiling windows look out to the white sandy beach and turquoise waters of the Gulf. Away from the crowded tourist areas, this quiet and tranquil beach feels like you have it all to yourself, because you do. Sand Key is a prestigious beach community that has some of the widest most private beaches in Florida. While only separated by a bridge from Clearwater Beach’s amenities and attractions, Sandy Key is a serene and tranquil oasis. The buildings premium amenities include a large heated pool and spa that has full sun all day long, an outdoor kitchen with gas BBQ-grill, tennis court, shuffle-board, basketball hoop, reserved parking and 24/7 security guard.

This unit has been tastefully updated. It is bright, contemporary and comfortable. A fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need to feel right at home includes; microwave, double oven, refrigerator, keurig coffee maker, blender, toaster, stainless steel cookware, flatware, tableware and utensils. Just add your groceries. The dining table seats four and there are two chairs at the kitchen bar area as well.

The bedroom has a queen sized bed with a brand new 13” thick memory foam mattress. The pillows are not your typical hotel pancake variety, there are 4 of them and they are king sized and cozy. There are plenty of high quality linens for your stay. It also has a walk-in closet with plenty of storage. There is a comfortable chair, a 50” flat screen tv and ceiling fan. The bedroom has a sliding glass door out to a covered patio with direct beach views.

The living room has spectacular views of the beach through the floor to ceiling windows.

There is a writing desk and a 55” flat screen television with Blu-Ray player. High speed internet, basic cable and phone service with unlimited calls to the U.S. And Canada are all provided. In case there are four staying we have also included a queen sized aerobed to use.

The master bathroom has a granite countertop and walk-in shower with a bench, no bathtub. Plenty of quality towels are provided as well a blow dryer. The half bath is updated with granite as well and located near the entrance of the unit.

There is a washer and dryer with iron and ironing board in the unit for your convenience, no need to pack as much for your stay. We have large beach towels, chairs and a beach umbrella for your use. Also a rain umbrella, you never know… The building has both an elevator and stairs. Lighthouse Towers is smoke free and pets are not permitted for renters.

A short walk from Lighthouse Towers are the “Shops of Sand Key” including; Dunkin Donuts, an ice cream store, nail salon, convenience store, pizza and a few restaurants. The restaurants have table service while you sit dockside on the bay. As a Florida native I have to confess that you will get more out of your visit with a car. There are so many things to see and do but they are spread out. That being said you might find that a car is not necessary if you are only planning on enjoying the beach. In that case most everything you would need is within walking distance and if you choose to go further you can catch the Jolly Trolley. It runs along Clearwater Beach and Sand Key. PSTA Dial-a-Ride offers bus and trolley service around the beach area. Even if you have a car we recommend it because it is very convenient and inexpensive.

We are located near many tourist activities, including: Clearwater Aquarium, Clearwater Marina for deep-sea fishing, water sports, dolphin watching excursions, sunset cruises, shopping, dancing, dining and much more. Clearwater Beach is one of the best beaches in the country. USA Today confirmed what everyone who has ever been here already knows...

The Clearwater Community Sailing Association is a short walk away as well. If you enjoy sailing or kayaking you can rent boats there.

http://www.clearwatercommunitysailing.org/

Lighthouse Towers HOA rules state that 14 nights is the minimum rental period allowed. No owner at Lighthouse Towers can lease for a shorter period of time. 14 nights is actually among the shortest leases on a Sand Key condo, most are minimum 30 nights. You can stay for less than 14 nights obviously but the two week lease and rates still apply. You’ll find that this is a much better deal than a local hotel when you consider the amenities.

There is also travel/vacation insurance available from a few national companies. These policies vary but may be worth it for you if you are staying for an extended time.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no additional convenience fee when paying by 'eCheck' or check. All other forms of payment will require an additional 3.5% convenience/credit card fee in addition to the lease price.

Thanks and please call if you have any questions.

About Vincent Caschetta

We are Florida natives who have lived here all our lives. I spent much of my childhood enjoying these beaches before any of these buildings were even here. I had always dreamed of living here on the beach and have now been fortunate enough to do so. We currently live and work in Southeast Florida. We aren't quite ready to retire so we'd like to share our dream with you.

Vincent Caschetta purchased this condo in 2015

Why Vincent Caschetta chose Clearwater Area

We bought this property because we love the serenity of the beach and the quiet community. We have always wanted a condo on the beach. We plan on retiring to Sand Key. In the meantime we will vacation there.

What makes this condo unique

We chose this property because of the breathtaking views and over sized balcony over looking the beach. We love being able to enjoy a nice meal or a glass of wine out on the balcony. Clearwater Beach has a small town feel with big city amenities. Tampa is about 20 miles away, the greater Tampa area offers all the extras you could want;

A Memorable Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about this condo during this our second stay. We’ve stayed at Lighthouse Towers a few times before, but those units couldn’t compare to the quality of this condo. After our first stay in May 2016, I made some suggestions to the owner that I felt would enhance future visits and they were all taken care of before our second visit in November 2016. Although we only stayed 17 days this time, the kitchen was perfectly equipped for an even longer stay. We were also glad that, for once, there was enough storage in the bathrooms and enough towel bars. We will definitely consider a third visit, but with all the great reviews this condo is getting, I'm afraid we'll have a difficult time booking it in the future.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

I can't praise this condo enough. We have spent almost a month here and the owners, Vincent and Jennifer have thought of absolutely everything you need for a comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The condo was spotlessly clean. The oversized balcony is fantastic providing shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon. We loved having Amazon Echo and the Prime movies. The pool area, tennis court etc are all lovely and the security staff very friendly. We will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you Vincent and Jennifer, we are sorry to be leaving.
