“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

We rented a 2 bedroom condo (room 202) for 7 adults and 2 kids. We had more than enough room. The condo was huge, clean, and updated. There was a problem with the pool most of the time we were there, but arrangements had been made to use the one across the street. Beautiful view from the balcony. Everything you need is easily within walking distance. The Greek pizza place around the corner is AMAZING! Everyone we worked with was very nice and accommodating. Can't wait to return!

Thanks so much for your feedback! We do appreciate and we are very happy to hear you had a good time! 202 really is quite a large and beautiful unit. We'd be elated to rent it to you again.

Thanks,
Sarah and the PVR Team

We were very happy with our stay in this very lovely condo. Unit 405 is probably the most beautiful of all the condo's that I looked at in this building or in other buildings, via the internet, with much care having been taken in picking out the paint and decorations. We found the building to be quiet, clean and well maintained and the people friendly. The maintenance man Jim was very helpful and even lent us a beach umbrella. There were books to borrow in the lobby which was great since I forgot mine. Our condo had beach chairs and beach towels. The bed was a comfortable quality foam type mattress, and the view of the bay fantastic! I think this view is even better then the gulf view as I love to see the boats docked in the bay and the lights at night. Another condo resident said he had seen dolphins and a manatee from the balcony. Sarah at Prime Vacation Rentals was very helpful and gave us some good tips about shopping and restaurants in the area. We love to have a kitchen for making our own breakfast and lunch and then usually eat our dinners out. Unfortunately there were no spices like we have found in other condos we have rented, other than salt and pepper, so you might want to bring your own.The beach and restaurants are a few minutes walk. We enjoyed renting bicycles one day at a nearby hotel and there is a very nice putt putt golf place nearby as well.There is supposed to be cheap or free transportation in the area, which we never used, as we rented a car and appreciated the free parking at our condo. You might want to rent a different unit at Dockside if you don't want to rent a car as the rental agency is not close to the condo, or check with Sarah at PV Rentals on how to use other transportation to pick up your key. All in all we loved our stay. Thank you to the owners of unit 405 for sharing their lovely place!

Room Tip: Unit 405 is the beautiful.

We are glad you enjoyed yourself and Dockside #405 and Clearwater Beach!

Just so you have the information-- we have changed the check in procedure for Dockside 405 to allow guests to go directly to the building and not require them to stop by our office, due to a coded lock. More convenient for guests coming here, I agree with you.

Anyways, we will be as accommodating as possible in the future if you would ever like to stay at the Dockside again. Call us any time!

Thanks,

We stayed at Dockside condos 406 (with private balcony from the master bedroom) in May 2013 for a week. We are a family of 3: 2 adults and a 5 year old (at that time). First of all, I want to thank the team from Prime Vacation Rentals for everything they've done. We drove from Canada and it just took longer than we thought, but even at 9pm when we got there we were able to reach them by phone and get the keys and all the info we needed to get to the apartment. The apartment is just as described, nothing less; it is extremely clean, quiet, it had everything we needed. Lots of closet space. It accommodates 2 adults easily.....our son is not picky at all, so he slept on the sofa bed in the living room and it was just perfect for him. AC works wonderful, big fridge, lots of private parking (they will provide you with a parking tag of course). There is a small washer and dryer in the unit, this came in handy a few times ....you can access them from your private balcony which was quite cool because you won't be bothered by the noise while they're in use. The building has 2 elevators which was very useful since we had lots of things to carry from and to the car, so we didn't have to waste precious time. Unfortunately, they didn't have internet on the 4th floor, but we could access the internet from the second floor where you can relax on the comfortable chairs and sofas. Can't say anything about the pool, we did not ''visit'' it at all.....the weather was so wonderful, we were at the beach all day long. Beach and restaurants are just a few minutes walk. We went out to eat a few times, but we cooked as well. Didn't feel out of place in the kitchen because it had everything we needed for quick meals. My son is a big homemade food eater, so my wife made him soup in a small pot and even chicken schnitzels (not the kind you find in the freezers at the supermarket, but her own ''from scratch'' recipe). All the kitchen appliances are stainless steel and new (if they are not, it fooled me because they are very well maintained), granite countertops in kitchen and bathroom. It's a short walk to Pier 60, so every night after dinner we'd walk to the pier and stop on our way to see the street entertainers. The building is located close to the night entertainment, but not in the heart of it, so if you're travelling with young children, the street noise will not be an inconvenience. Just a word of advise about the check out time: make sure you have everything packed the night before or early morning on the check out date, because the cleaning staff will be at your door promptly, not one minute before or after. They are very professional (they won't kick you out), but why be embarrassed when you can just be on time. We were extremely happy we found this place. We sincerely recommend it. We will come back, most likely for a longer stay.

We stayed in unit 306 Dockside Condo in Clearwater Beach Fl for one week. Although a very small unit it was perfect for two people. The unit was wheelchair accessible, and was updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The patio was shared, running the full length of the building, but this was an end unit. No one was walking past our area, and it was very private. The view from the patio was outstanding, overlooking the intercoastal waterways. The Condo has a common room on the second floor where you could get free wi fi. It was a beautiful room, very nicely decorated. Both Jeff, the manager and Jim in maintenance were really friendly and helpful. The pool is shared by the condo next door, but there was hardly ever anyone there. There were lots of lounging chairs, and nice scenery. The location of the condo was perfect for the
beach, shops and restaurants.

Stayed with 3 couples and had more than enough room in 203. Great beds, location and look! I would recommend these condo’s to anyone. We booked through Florida Beach Rentals and they were great, even though some issues came up they quickly corrected everything and gave us a better room at a fantastic deal.

We stayed at 605 Dockside Condos in June 2010. We were very impressed with the accommodation. The beds were really comfy. The kitchen was very well equipped. The microwave and oven need computer degrees to operate them. The rest of the condo was a little sparse, but without reason to complain.

The location was ideal and the view over the marina was great (made me want to but a boat). We were able to pick up WiFi in the 2nd floor lounge or in the rooms, using the signal from the Travelodge nearby.

If we had one observation, it would be that the washing machine was faulty - it has a fault on the cold water intake, resulting in extremely hot washed and numerour error messages. TVs took a bit of getting gused to too.

The check in at Florida Beach Rentals was simple and the lady who served us was very friendly.

The nearby beach was beautiful and without a sign of any oil.
