Party of 6, we stayed here recently. 4 adults a 2 children. This was so much better than staying at a hotel, and price was about the same (maybe even less) than hotels in the area. 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, living room and a small (but fully equipped) kitchen area. The ceiling fans kept the place cool and breezy at all times.
Inground pool was a nice bonus but it really needs to be skimmed more often. The water was clean, but the bugs and debris in the water needed more attention. Plenty of lounge chairs, tables. We even had a pizza delivered to the pool area.
Location: you can't get much better for location. You are literally steps from Clearwater Beach. If you know the area, it's 2 building behind Frency's Rockaway. It's also on the main road- that doesn't bother me one bit but some people might not like the noise of the main road. The pool area/building is surrounded by vegetation, so you don't SEE the main road, you only hear it.
The office you check in to- friendly and helpful at check in. Since no one was in our unit the night before, we were able to check in a few hours early, which was very nice.
Ok- the "not so good": although they have someone clean the unit after each stay, they apparently ask the guests to wash the dishes. BAD policy. Actually kind of gross. All the bowls in the cabinet were dirty (sticky) and 2 had stagnant water in them (which was spilled onto one guest). Yech. So I'd say the cleaners don't actually check the dishes to see if they were washed. I did bring this to the attention of the rental agents. So here is my take: if you stay here and the dishes are dirty, then they did not listen to us. If you stay here and the sidhes are clean (and you are not expected to clean them when you leave) then they did listen. (There is not a dishwaher in this unit- I could see us being asked to put them in a dishwasher and running it, but there isn't one in this unit). Also, the dish stariner was filthy when we got there- my husband cleaned it but I guess that should have been my clue that the dishes might not be clean.
I would stay here again- but only if I hear from others that the dish situation has changed. There was so much to like here, I hate to have something that could easily be fixed be the cause of not coming back. The decor is cute as a button, and the photos they show on VRBO are very accurate.
