Unique Benefits

In addition to the location being in the heart of Clearwater Beach where everything is within walking distance, the condo itself is very well appointed.

The best part of the condo, and I think most guests would agree, is the 300 Square Foot Balcony over looking Clearwater Harbor. The views are simply breathtaking especially at sunrise and in the evening with all the lights shimmering over the harbor.

Why Kids Love It

The condo is not suitable for small children due to the proximity to water as well as being on the 5th floor with an open rail balcony. Kids age 13 and up are OK

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are Karen and John Bickford and reside in Bolton Massachusetts also known as Apple Country. My husband and I are both small business owners and have one daughter Chloe. We love to fly down to Clearwater Beach for some sun and fun when time permits. May, September, October and November are our absolute favorite times of the year to visit. The weather is just right, not too hot or too cool.

Why this property? What makes this Condo unique
The balcony and the views stole my heart away; there really is nothing better than sitting on the balcony taking in the panoramic views of Clearwater Bay and the Gulf of Mexico watching the boats go by and dolphins frolicking in the water below.
The well appointed floor plan was integral in my decision to purchase as well as the location and security of the property. It was and is still all good…..

Guestbook comments from the host:

My family and I had a great stay at this dolphin view condo. We really did see dolphins while enjoying coffee on the balcony! The condo was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated, and it was in walking distance to the beach and tons of restaurants and bars. I have used VRBO many times and Karen was by far the best host I’ve ever worked with. Her communication was great. She made sure everything was seamless and that we had a great time. Thanks Karen!


Jul 2023

I rarely give 5 stars but if I could give this place 6 I would. Outstanding communication from online reservations to check out. Beautiful condo on the bayside just across the street from the beach. We went to 3 different beaches during our stay. The public Clearwater beach, 10 minute walk, very crowded but nice. Shepard beach, across the street. They had live music, food and bar service. This is small but we liked it. Sand Key state park is just a 3 minute drive. Less crowded, beautiful beach where you can pack your own cooler. We went to Sand key twice and liked it the best. Back to the condo. The views were amazing! We got to see dolphins everyday and manatees on our last day!!! This place has everything you need. Beach chairs, beach cart, cooler, ice packs, extra blankets, great beds, a fully stocked kitchen…I could go on and on! Karen was so easy to communicate with! She responded quickly to any question we had!!! She has gone out of her way to make sure you don’t need anything during your stay!! Everything is within walking distance from her condo. Plenty of restaurants, bars and shops within a few blocks. Felt very safe walking around each evening!


Jun 2023

Everything was great. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The host was always available and quick to get back. We had no issues. We will be staying there again. I highly recommend it.


Jun 2023

Walking distance from the beach, restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops. You can have coffee in the am on the balcony and watch the dolphins swim around. It is such a great little place to stay. Would recommend to anyone going to Clearwater.


Apr 2023

Our group of 6 had a great stay and was very comfortable. Salty’s became our after beach place for drinks and dinner. Can’t wait to return.


Apr 2023

Karen is an amazing host. Days before arrival she was staying in touch making sure everything went smoothly. The condo was exactly as pictured. It was one of our best stays at Clearwater Beach. We really enjoyed watching the dolphins in the mornings off the balcony. It was the perfect location. We will definitely return. Thank you again, Karen!


Apr 2023

Great Stay

My family of 5 stayed at Karen’s property in Clearwater Beach and had a great time! The property is in a great location with everything you need in walking distance. Karen and the app she provides really answered any questions we had during our stay and helped us get the most out of our week long stay. If I am ever in the Clearwater Beach area again I would definitely rent with Karen again!Thanks, Mike (from Pennsylvania)

Newly renovated - has everything you need

This condo is newly renovated and very clean. It sits on the bay where you can see dolphins swim in the mornings while you drink your coffee from the balcony. The beach is within walking distance. Shops and pier within walking distance as well. The kitchen has all the utensils you need. The owner is very responsive to questions. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend.
