Guestbook comments from the host:

Beach like a Native!

Owner secrets to easily enjoying the best beaches: (A little truth: Covid produced a historical influx to Florida beaches, that means parking nightmares and potential frustration for vacationers, well here’s a little help from a Native….

• Clearwater Beach! for people that don’t want to pack much and just want to get there already!

Follow these steps:

1. GPS Clearwater beach Hilton. If equipped with handicapped permit Park free & get on beach in seconds!

2. Pull in and park to the right directly in front of hotel (not in garage), if there isn’t an open spot there you’ll park in the open temp parking out front. (The Resort’s Garage is your last resort, no pun intended…get it last “resort”!) ok, moving on….

3. Go through resort to outdoor Tiki bar and beach. Eat with toes in the sand, near clean bathrooms, shower, games and live music! (Southern Rock, 80’s Country, a little Reggae). Walk right down to the ocean as you please! Go for a jet ski rental or just sit and dream.

****(If they asked if your a hotel guest just explain that your there for the restaurant).

****Park in the garage or larger outdoor parking area at low cost if you don’t have handicapped permit.

****Spotted Donkey, located in front of Hilton…good Mexican!

_______________________________________________________________________Sunset Beach - Best Sunsets in Pinellas -a little harder parking on weekend but more hidden so typically not bad. Eat at Caddy’s with toes in the sand as you watch the ocean. Usually calmer water.
_______________________________________________________________________
-Pass-a-grille beach - beautiful and quaint…(This is our most beautiful “slow beach”, meaning less in your face typical annoying behavior - beach nonsense….just think about it)
_________________________________
Extra: John’s Pass is a beautiful location for shopping with parking garage, boat rental, fishing, etc…

Family Vacation

I would like to start off by thanking both Scott and Crystal for making our first trip to Clearwater a memorable and enjoyable experience. All questions and requests were answered in record fashion. From the moment we entered the home, we felt at home! The home is spacious, very clean and organized. Not to mention the pool is a big plus! It is very well situated, near all stores and restaurants, not to mention short drive to surrounding beaches. Thanks again Scott and Crystal, we will most definitely be back and recommend your home to our family and friends.

Sweet serenity near Clearwater Beach

Oh man....Thankyou again to whom ever keeps the paradise in the backyard up.From the location to the amenities, this was the perfect stay!So many beautiful little areas to just sit and relax by the pool or garden. This was one of the best get-aways we have ever had. The kids loved all the amenities which made for a easy time of entertaining and I loved the attention to detail. From the stocked Keurig to the back up gas for the grill you guys covered everything. We will definitely be coming back!Chad

Truly Wonderful!

Thank you again for allowing us to stay at the Sand Dollar. Everything was such a blessing, from the pool to the game room! The home is so clean and fun feeling, and best of all the neighborhood was perfect for my early morning runs. It was also nice having the beach supplies on hand - saved us a ton!Thanks Caty
