Don't wait another minute to book this fantastic waterfront 3-bedroom, 2-bath pool home in Clearwater Beach! You'll love its spacious, open floor plan with big views overlooking the heated pool and broad canal beyond. As soon as you walk in the front door, the view will sweep you away with an urge to head outside and enjoy everything Florida has to offer!
Before you do that, be sure to take in the beautifully remodeled eat-in kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertops, and the big living room complete with a dry bar and big flat-panel HD TV. This room is designed for relaxing!
Down the hall you'll find a poolside bedroom with a queen bed, along with a second bedroom with twin beds and a full bath with a combination tub and shower. At the end of the hall is the master bedroom, which features a king bed, en suite bath with both a walk-in shower and a spa tub, direct access to the pool, and striking waterway views.
If you're looking for location, location, location, this property can't be beat! Boaters will love the dock available for their use...bring your own, or rent one while you're here. This deep waterway provides direct access to Clearwater Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Pack your cooler, head out the back door, hop on board your boat tied up at the dock, and take a leisurely cruise up the harbor to Caladesi Island State Park. As one of the few completely natural islands along Florida´s Gulf Coast, Caladesi´s white sand beaches were rated America's Best Beach in 2008. Beach lovers can enjoy swimming, sunbathing and beachcombing, saltwater anglers can cast a line from their boats or surf fish from the beach, and nature enthusiasts can spot wildlife while hiking the three mile nature trail through the island's interior, or paddling a three mile kayak trail through the mangroves and bay.
A little further up the harbor is Honeymoon State Park. Nature lovers will find osprey nests, a wide variety of shorebirds, and one of the few remaining virgin slash pine forests in South Florida. The park boasts several nature trails and bird observation areas. This is another terrific spot to swim, fish, and snorkel in the warm waters of the Gulf. Shelling is particularly good here, as the Gulf currents deposit an incredible variety of seashells on the shore.
Ready for a party? A trip in your boat can also take you down the harbor to the action of Clearwater Beach. Although it's been around for 100 years, Clearwater is an up-to-the-moment year-round destination, offering a seemingly endless supply of entertainment, natural beauty, and outdoor activities both on land and at sea. Enjoy casual and fine dining, vibrant activities and the rich history and heritage of the Gulf Coast, all from your backyard!
Of course, if boating isn't your thing, you'll still enjoy the waterfront pool at your home-away-from-home, and the easy access by bike or on foot to all the fun things to do and beautiful beaches to visit in Clearwater. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Winter the dolphin, is on your route to the beach!
So don't delay...you'll be so glad you booked Island Retreat for your Clearwater vacation!
A NOTE ABOUT HEATED POOLS: Since running pool heat is a very expensive proposition for our owners, they ask that we collect $100 per week (plus tax) from guests requesting the pool at their rental property be heated.
