Great bay side condo situated a short drive away from the more congested areas of Clearwater and downtown Tampa. The beach is just a block away across the street, and Laura (the owner) has plenty of beach chairs, towels, toys for the kids, and even a wagon to pull them in! There are several restaurants within walking distance in either direction, along with candy and ice cream shops for the kids.
The condo was quite spacious, with three bedrooms and bathrooms, and four more beds in the upstairs loft. There was more than enough room to accommodate our quite large family. We made full use of the furnished kitchen and dined in to save money instead of eating out every night.
Overall, this condo was a great place to stay and Redington Beach is a great town in general to stay in. We will definitely be visiting again.
Nice Condo. Owner lives downstairs. Any problems she would fix. Sea Breeze restaurant next door. Nice little fish market (which smoked fresh fish everyday) on the other side. Next door to them Wahoos Bar and Grill. So fresh seafood everyday. Had a great time with the family (3 Generations) ages ranging from 34 to 78. The deck over looking bay was everyone's favorite place to be. Parking a little tight but it worked out.
We loved this rental. The full deck over the bay was our favorite place. We watched dolphins and sting rays and beautiful birds fishing off the dock. The home is older, classic and comfortable. There are three bedrooms, each with their own complete bath The master bedroom is very lovely. The steep winding staircase has a loft with four double beds. The beach is a short 5 minute walk across a busy highway. Laura has a wagon, beach toys and chairs and beach towels for your use.
The excellent Sea Breeze resaurant/bar is beside the condo, and you can hear the music clearly until around 10 at night. It was not a problem, and sometimes entertaining.
We went on the Dolphin Racer by John's Pass, and found it to be beyond excellent. Shopping in John's Pass is a treat as well. Enjoy!
We had no problems. Laura was available, friendly and accomadating. We would LOVE to return.
The condo is spacious with a beautiful large covered porch overlooking the inland waterway. We saw herons and dolphins. The beach is across the street with numerous beach chairs and toys available.
The owner was responsive to our calls.
Our biggest complaint is that the condo was advertised as a 4 bedroom. It’s a 3 bedroom with a loft with many beds but no privacy upstairs. Both windows in the loft were broken—one boarded—resulting in noise from the adjacent restaurant.
Smaller issues includes a broken upper dishwasher rack, broken folding door in kitchen, insufficient silverware for the # of people the condo sleeps and the curtains in master bedroom didn’t block the light at night or in the morning.
Although there were a few minor problems, they were of no consequence. The Condo is very spacious and clean. We enjoyed the sunrise views from the varanda on the back of the condo. Also, easy access to the beach was wonderful

House was very clean on arrival and is in good shape. With three couples meeting for a reunion the inside parking for two cars meant we could just leave two inside the entire week. Very convenient location to local restaurants with a 7-11 a block away. We rented kayaks from next door which included delivery and pick up.

The pictures do reveal the worn and dirty condition of this condo. Arrived to find dirty floors, hair in drains and bathroom drawers, bathtub filthy, silverware crusted with food, windowsills have mold on all of them (see attached pics). The condo has seen much better days. Don't be fooled by the cheap price. We spent the first few hours cleaning and rewashing all the dishes. The owner never made it clear she was available. Furthermore, she had just inspected the condo, so why report it when apparently this was clean to her. The beds upstairs are broken down mattresses and box springs on the floor. The loft was dusty and dirty. The "pool table" is a child's toy, which is broken anyway. We left the condo in much better condition than when we arrived. We should be paid as part of the cleaning crew! I can't post my full experience here since it is censored, but consider yourself warned.
