Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sue and Jim's large condo at Continental Towers. It was a comfortable place to enjoy the surf and sand of Clearwater Beach. The condo had new furnishings, large kitchen, and bedrooms with very comfortable beds. There is a nice view from the master of the gulf, a private beach, and bridge to Sand Key. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the street action as well! Continental Towers is in a great location..only a 5 minute walk to the main beach. It's a clean complex with nice amenities. We loved the pool area, the well stocked library, and our evenings of watching the sunset and boats from the dock. We definitely recommend this rental in Clearwater Beach!

Owner's Response: Dear Julie and Steve, Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We really appreciate your kind words. Jim and I are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our vacation home. Your vacation is important to us, and we have made every effort to make sure you are comfortable in our home. The location is perfect for walking the beach, shopping and enjoying everything that Clearwater Beach has to offer. You are right, even watching the street action from our balcony at night can be a lot of fun! We are especially glad to hear that you found the public beach and Pier 66, which are within walking distance from our condo. I am hoping that you had a chance to para sail, jet ski, or go fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. I am sure you were able to take advantage of the live entertainment offered on the beach on a nightly basis. Whether you are resting in the sun, frolicking on the beach, or reading a good book by the pool, Clearwater Beach is a great place to be! Please visit us again soon! Sincerely, Sue and Jim

Comfort and convenience

  • 4 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying at this spacious condo. It is very nicely decorated and a beautiful place to stay. Step outside to enjoy the ocean and pool and if you want, ping pong, billiards, a sauna and exercise room. Don't miss the library. Everything is in walking distance - good food, miniature golf, and shops for all your beach needs. I look forward to coming back.

Continental Towers Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay in the condo. We found the area, and the amenities in the condo itself, to be outstanding.

The condo is well furnished, very comfortable, and spacious. We were surprised at how large the unit was for a two-bedroom. It could easily sleep a family of six. It had everything we needed and was well appointed for all our needs.

Clearwater Beach is clearly a destination area. Excellent restaurants of varying tastes are all within easy reach. Entertainment is mainly centered around the beach. However, as we don't care for the large crowds, we recommend going north twenty minutes to Honeymoon Island State Park and taking the ferry to Caladesi Island. The ferry cost is worth the experience of having the beach in pristine, original condition with few other people around. We went during the week and had the sense that the island belonged to us. This was a trip highlight.

The condo has its own pool and private beach, with a private sitting area on the water from which to view the sunsets. Very well maintained grounds. Overall, an excellent stay and experience. Looking forward to going back.

Owner's Response: Dear Jim and Lisa, Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our condo. You certainly deserved a nice, relaxing vacation after your long deployment. We are glad that you were able to find everything that you needed right there at the condominium, and/or on the beach. We love our location on Clearwater Beach! The condo is within walking distance of everything, and yet our guests can have the privacy of their own beach, pool, and vacation home if they are looking for it. Thank you for the tips of how to avoid large crowds! We have never been to Honeymoon Island State Park, or to Caladesi Island. The beach sounds beautiful, and we are planning to go there during our next visit to Clearwater Beach. A special thanks for the sacrifice you made when you were serving our country. We are grateful for your service, and we are proud of our troops. Sincerely, Jim and Sue Kelty

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a wonderful stay at this condo. The condo is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for your stay. The kitchen is well equipped, comfortable beds, and plenty of towels for the pool and beach. We enjoyed all the amenities. Walk out the back door to the private pool or beach area, both with spectacular views. The private deck is perfect to watch the sunset, boats passing by and the dolphins playing. The young and not so young enjoyed playing shuffle board, ping pong and relaxing in the sauna. The condo is very secure and has its own private parking space. We enjoyed the short stroll to Pier 60, shopping and many nice restaurants. Thank you, Sue and Jim for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Whether you are looking to just relax or enjoy all Clearwater Beach has to offer this is the perfect place to do so! Thanks Again, Joyce and Greg.

Owner's Response: Dear Joyce and Greg, Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We are so glad that you had a wonderful stay at our condo. We are especially happy that you were able to enjoy all of the amenities of the condo, AND everything that Clearwater Beach has to offer. Did you know that Clearwater Beach was recently voted "Best Beach in Florida" for 2013? I think that Clearwater Beach is the best kept secret in Florida! Pier 60 is amazing! We are also glad that you were able to rest and relax on the beach with your family. You are creating special memories that will last forever with the children. We hope that you all have a very happy and healthy New Year. Sincerely, Jim and Sue

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My sister & I had a wonderful, relaxing time at your home in Clearwater Beach. The condo had everything we needed so all we had to do was unpack and enjoy the warm weather for the month. We especially loved the pool area and the beach just a few feet away. We saw dolphins from our lounge chairs almost every day which was amazing. When we wanted to eat out, play miniature golf or go the the pier all of these things and more were within walking distance or a short ride by the shuttle right outside the condo. The people we met were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. I would recommend your condo to anyone no matter what they wanted to do. Thank you for everything.

Owner's Response: Dear Pat and Joyce, We are so glad that you had a wonderful, relaxing time during your stay at our vacation home. We are especially glad to hear that you were able to rest and relax by the beach, and experience first hand some of the marine life that lives in the Gulf. After surviving "Hurricane Sandy", you deserve a great vacation! We try our best to make sure that our home provides our guests with everything they need to enjoy themselves while they are vacationing on Clearwater Beach. Thank you so much for sharing your kind thoughts with us. We hope that you and your family have a safe and healthy Holiday Season this year. Sincerely, Sue and Jim

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing condo to rent for a month! We enjoyed everything about it. From the cleanliness, to the helpful staff, the amazing location, and of course - the beach! The condo is completely set up so that vacationers do not have to bring anything extra. There are beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella for outside fun. The kitchen is well stocked with everything a family needs to enjoy quiet meals. And Clearwater Beach has the most amazing restaurants to enjoy every type of cuisine. Jim and Sue were amazing through the entire process of renting the condo! We were so blessed to be able to enjoy such a wonderful place!
