Clearwater Beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Pelican Point Beach Resort. My husband and eleven year old son and I stayed at the condo for 5 days in May and we had a great experience. The condo is on the fourth floor and was very quiet but yet very accessible to the pool, etc. since the unit was not far from the elevator. The condo was stocked with plenty of towels and linens and the kitchen was also equipped glasses, plates and paper towels and other necessities. We were especially happy to see there was even enough coffee for the week.

The resort had a really nice pool with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The best feature of the unit was it's proximity to the beach.....it's just across the street. We were blessed with great weather and we would recommend this rental unit to anyone.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in mid-August 2016. The room was clean and well stocked. The resort was a short walk to the beach, Pier 60, and all of the shops. I had a few questions prior to our arrival, and Carole was very prompt and helpful. This will be the first place we try to book for our next vacation to Clearwater Beach.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with how clean the apartment was and how well appointed it was. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets and towels. The 3 minute walk to the beach/gulf was fanstastic and the 2 beach chairs in the room were definately put to good use! The resort is in a great location and within a short walking distance to the beachwalk, miniature golf and great restaurants and shops.

When we return to Clearwater, I know where we'll stay! Thank you for the hospitality!

Great location, disappointed with apartment

  • 2 of 5

The location is excellent however the apartment is in need of a total refurb. The furniture is very dated , the bed creaks when you just sit on it, the tv is in a cabinet which is very old fashioned nowadays and the kitchen plates and cups were chipped- not good. I appreciate we paid less than if we had booked direct with the hotel but I expect a certain standard. Very disappointed with the inside of this apartment .

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you were disappointed. if I owned many units I would probably have different designs in each unit two satisfy everyone's taste. I only have one Condo in Clearwater Beach that I rent and I love the tropical Tommy Bahama style furniture that I chose for this condo. This high-end quality furniture is made of all solid wood, (no pressboard here). But since your visit I have installed a brand-new wall-mounted 32 inch flatscreen TV and I have replaced the dishes and silverware. I also purchased a new futon cover with a more tropical pattern. If you let me know what style you like I will be happy to refer you somewhere else. There is a high end luxury hotel across the street that is very modern perhaps that would suit your needs but be prepared to pay upwards of $300 per night. I hope you will come visit us again someday.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The studio is small but perfectly adequate. Great location, just across from the beach and easy walking distance to great restaurants.

Exactly what I expected. A place to rest, secure your things, with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Come into this with realistic expectations and you wont be let down. This place is not a 5 star hotel but it's not a dump either. My family was looking for somewhere within walking distance from the beach to rest our heads and keep our things secure while we spent the majority of the time at the beach and restaurants. This place is perfect for that.

The bed was comfy and the kiddo didn't complain about the futon. Shower, fridge, sink, etc... all worked without issue. Staff was nice and accommodating. Pool wasn't bad or full of people. There were a few beach things in the room we used and were happy we didn't have to buy (2 chairs, umbrella, sand castle building toys). I'd certainly stay here again.

To the owner - Here are a couple of things you may consider:

-- New tub drain/stop, the one you have isn't very user friendly.

-- New shower head.

-- New aerator for the bathroom sink, water blasts out of that sink so fast it splashes everywhere.

-- Headboard could be better secured, every time I rolled around it would knock against the wall.

-- Consider adding a few hooks in the shower to hang wet things, those 3M bathroom hooks you just stick on would do the trick.

Thanks again for letting us stay, we may hit you up again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the awesome review. I actually just ordered a new dual shower head and I will certainly take you up on the other suggestions. I will be arriving there in 4 days to enjoy my condo for a few weeks as well as make some new upgrades and install a new, larger flat screen TV. Happy you had a great vacation!
