I booked this property several months ago for Labor Day weekend. When we arrived, we were told that they had no record of our reservation. When I showed the property manager the confirmation from the owner and a receipt for my payment, we were offered either a studio with one twin bed or a studio with a Murphy bed. I pointed out that we had paid for a one bedroom condo, not a studio. They called the owner and told us they happened to have a different one bedroom but we would have to come back in an hour and a half so they could clean it. We didn't get to see this unit, but the one we ended up in was clean and had a window in the living room that overlooked the bay. The unit was very outdated but it was serviceable and the bed was a dream. If you're looking for modern luxury, this isn't it. If you're looking for a quiet place with a clean pool and a beautiful view, this is it. When they say 2 blocks from the beach, they mean it and the blocks are short. Due to the booking issue, the owner was kind enough to leave a gift card for us for a restaurant nearby called Clear Sky. It was a lovely gesture and she couldn't have made a better pick. If you get the urge to fish, ask at the front desk before you rent or buy equipment. Many people leave their fishing equipment behind when they leave and you can often borrow a rod and reel and fish off the private dock on the property. If it doesn't bother you to be surrounded by high rise luxury buildings while you're on a tight budget in a nugget of a property, you will definitely enjoy this place. It's very simple, but sometimes that's exactly what you need!
We found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. At first we didn't realize just how convenient the location was, but after a day or two of roaming around, we found a lot of good places to eat, a pharmacy and other stores very close by. There is a nice pool and the parking is good too. The wireless internet worked well. If we had to offer one piece of criticism it would be around the beds. The mattresses are not the best. If you have a bad back, I'd make sure you asked for a unit with a newer or better mattress. We stayed in unit 1 and there was little support. My husband and I managed fine, but it could be a problem for others.

My friend and I decided to take a last-minute trip to Florida. With less than a month to plan it, I found this little gem on trip advisor. We were looking for a place with a full kitchen and a pool close to the beach and nightlife. This place satisfied all of our needs. We thoroughly enjoy ourselves, didn't even have to rent a car because everything was so close. Loved, loved, loved it. Will be back!
We would highly recommend this rental as well as all the rentals in Coral Resort! Private doc on the intercoastal and 2 blocks from the beach. Also just 1-2 blocks from CVS, restaurants, liquor store, and more! Wish we would have found this place 20 years ago when we started to vacation in Clearwater Beach. Why stay at the typical hotels when you can stay here for about half the price?!? :)
