Wow! Beautifully renovated, large (730 square feet + tiled balcony) 1 bedroom ground floor condo with a resort like feel. The complex has 2 to 3 story buildings with a picturesque resort style pool in the middle area (our ground floor unit, very convenient for bringing in your suitcases and groceries, is in a nice quiet spot but does not face the pool). The unit has stunning 18 inch terracotta colour ceramic tiles, classy mouldings, modern kitchen and bathroom, and is furnished with sharp coastal style furniture. Once you walk in the door of this unit, you know that you have arrived at a wonderful vacation destination. We, the owners, are Canadian and we spend time here ourselves when we are on vacation. We welcome all travellers from around the world to our southern home and are sure that you will feel great here yourself once you arrive and will want to return again soon.
The outside of the buildings were all painted this fall. Upgrades to shrubbery are being discussed, which needs to be done. Driveway upgrades being discussed also. I would just recommend painting the speed bumps. Many of the units claim to be fully furnished but they have the bare necessities. Mine unit was well equipped. Many guest complained about housekeeping & I have to agree, for the money we pay, it should be spotless. The pool heater was down for 3 weeks this winter, so we did not have use of that for that period of time. It is currently running now. I think the gates should be locked 24/7 because most units don't have double locks or bar locks on the sliding doors. The guest are very nice and helpful here because they have been returning here for several years. The owners that live here year round are also very nice. Overall, you can find everything you need for your stay within a 5 mile radius. Most items can be found across the street at the plaza. Beaches are only 10 miles away.
We recently spent three very enjoyable weeks in this unit. The unit was comfortable and well furnished. From linens to dishes nothing was lacking at all. The bed was firm and felt new. It was very easy to book thru agent Sam and owner Eric. Emails were answered right away with any questions we had before arriving. The first floor worked well for us, you are mere steps from the front door of the condo....... which was great for those of us who pack way too much for the holiday! Wi-fi was included in the condo and it was very easy access and had a full, strong signal.
We would have booked again in a minute for next year, but it was already booked!

We stayed for a month at this lovely condo in the Avalon complex in Clearwater.
It was very tastefully decorated and the beautiful tiled terracotta coloured floor really
added to the new feel of the unit.
The agent "Sam" and the owner Eric were very pleasant to deal with.
The Avalon Condo Complex itself is very nice with a beautiful heated pool, a gym room that looked very nice however we were too busy to use it, and very nice grounds where we were allowed to walk our dog. It had plenty of "doggie bag dispensers and waste bins" around the circumference of the complex. The manager "Stephanie" was very pleasant to deal with.
The condo unit we rented was well appointed, had a fair amount of dishes and utensils and lots of closet space. The one bedroom (queen bed) was fairly comfortable and our friends who visited us for a few days said the queen sofa bed pull-out couch was also very comfortable.
The location was fantastic…..5 minutes to the beaches, groceries across the street and only 3.5 miles to Dunedin, which we fell in love with……not to forget the Pinelllas Trail and Tarpon Springs.
All in all, we had a great holiday here and would definitely rent the unit again.
In closing, the only negative comment I might add is that the photo in the rental ad led us to believe the unit overlooked the pool. It didn't…the unit's patio actually overlooks the parking area……but we wouldn't let that stop us from renting again.
