Home away from Home (with the beach)
My wife and I stayed here with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson. It was great. The layout was spacious and comfortable, and it was clean. The location was easy to get to by car. Although we drove down to the crowed beach (to people watch) there was a very nice less crowded beach a block away. Great for the morning walk with coffee. Maryhelen, the owner, was very nice and a pleasure to work with. Can’t go wrong.
Great Stay, amazing Location
This house was just what we were looking for. The proximity of this quaint house to the beach is wonderful, just a short 60 – 90 second walk and you are on the beautiful beach. The proximity to the beach was the primary reason we booked this property, the other huge factor was being able to bring a pet along with us. The house is located in a residential area and it is about a little bit more than a mile walk to the pier where all the restaurants are. The house is just as it is pictured on the vrbo site, so no surprises whatsoever. The house I would say is mid-century, the hardwood floors and other architectural features gave the house a warm feeling with charm/character which we really liked. The Wifi was solid and had no issues with it functioning. Everything we needed was there in the kitchen and having a dishwasher was great. We also used the grill one night and it worked very well, no issues with it. We really enjoyed the house everything being tidy and neat, it was plenty big enough as well. We used the beach chairs each day with no issues, we did not use the umbrellas as there was too much wind on the beach for those types of umbrellas. We did ride a few of the bikes but only for a little bit as we really wanted to spend all the time at the beach. The other bikes that were there needed some work in my estimation. It was not a big deal for us, but wanted to call it out in case that is important for other renters. It is well worth your time to make sure you go down to the beach for sunset every night it is so beautiful, also for a quick bite go to Pearly’s the food was very good. The rental process was fast and easy with great communication throughout from Maryhelen who was super nice. All in all was a great stay with no issues really. Without a doubt If we ever have the chance we would definitely come back and stay again, we truly enjoyed staying here! Thanks Maryhellen, we had a wonderful time staying at the Beachcomber.
In full disclosure I would say that the real rating would be a 4.5 but can’t get that granular on this site so picked a 5. Did not want to sell this great house short by selecting only a 4.
About Maryhelen Allbritton
I’m originally from Mt. Vernon, Indiana, but came to Clearwater 46 years ago to live in this beautiful tropical paradise. After graduating high school in Indiana I went in search of palm trees. I headed to Florida, with two places circled on the map, Clearwater and Palm Beach, simply because the names sounded so pretty. Came first to Clearwater and ended up staying and never made it to Palm Beach. Clearwater Beach was amazing then just as it is now! I married a local 5th generation Florida guy and our children are now proud to be 6th generation Floridians. Our family loves the beach and the water, and make it a part of our lives. Maryhelen Allbritton purchased this House in 2003.
Why I chose Clearwater Beach
We bought this home to make it available to my family and other families that want to visit Clearwater Beach as I did years ago. It’s so much nicer experiencing a beach vacation in a home rather than a motel room.
What makes this House unique
Our home is ideally located on north beach in the quiet residential neighborhood of Clearwater Beach. Close enough to walk or bike ride to the restaurants, shopping, bars, etc., yet in the quieter part of the beach where it feels like home. The beach access is a short distance away – a one minute easy walk by foot. You still are close to shopping, dining, charter fishing and a myriad of activities. The best of both worlds- come see for yourself!
