“Nice place”

This was a very nice little house. It had everything we needed and was comfortable. Except, the bed in the "master" bedroom was very uncomfortable and creaked with every movement making sleep a bit interrupted.

“Clean, comfortable, and convenient”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

My husband, our daughter, husband, and two grandchildren (ages 13 and 11) stayed at the Palm Retreat for 5 nights in July. We were visiting the area to see a family member who was recently transferred to the Clearwater Threshers. Palm Retreat was in a convenient location to visit the beach as well as the ball park. The Publix grocery store is a couple of blocks from the house. The home was within 30 to 45 minutes of Tampa airport allowing us to pick up and return our daughter’s husband who flew to FL rather than drive because of work responsibilities.
Positives about Palm Retreat:
1. We were able to rent the home for 5 days, not just a Sat. to Sat. stay, which suited our schedule.
2. Bruce, the home owner, allowed our ball player family member and his grandparents to come to the house to visit and eat several meals rather than meeting at a hotel or restaurant. We enjoyed playing card games and bingo, especially the grandchildren with their cousin.
3. There is a washer and dryer on the patio which we were able to use.
4. Easy to connect to wi-fi.
5. Kitchen well equipped for cooking which was great since we cooked for 9 people.
I would recommend Palm Retreat if you are looking for a comfortable rental while in Clearwater. The home is not “fancy” like some of the properties located at the beach. Palm Retreat is clean and homey, which is just want we needed to enjoy time with family.

“A great vacation home and amazing hosts!”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My daughter and I and her two small children stayed at The Palm Retreat last week and found it to be everything we needed! Comfortable and beautifully decorated! Bruce and Melody are the perfect hosts making sure your stay is a "home away from home". Bruce checked in by text now and then to make sure we were aware of great places to visit, giving directions to local spots and making sure we were comfortable and having a good vacation. I highly recommend utilizing any of their rental homes which are located close to the beach (just a five minute drive) and other fun spots! They even let us borrow buckets and shovels for my 2-1/2 year old granddaughter to use at the beach!!

“Immaculate, super cute vacation rental”

We stayed at the Palm Retreat because we were running in a half marathon in downtown Tampa. We weren't sure where we wanted to stay because we also wanted to visit the beach and Ybor city. This place was centrally located and about a 30 minute drive to the various locations we wanted to visit (but there isn't much to do within walking distance of the house). The house was super cute, immaculate, and the owner was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others!

Thanks, Billie, for your positive feedback. We'll update the house manual to include more information on what's available for nearby walks. Publix grocery store is 2 blocks away, O'Keefes pub and Christino's brick-oven pizza are short walks. Downtown Clearwater is about 3/4 mile, and has Capitol Theater (with 300 live shows each year); Tony's Pizzeria, Capitol Beer House, and La Fondita de Leo are popular places. There are also nice walks through the historic Harbor Oaks neighborhood, with waterfront sunset vistas at Turner Dock and Magnolia Dock. There is a dedicated bike/walking trail to Clearwater Beach, and the Pinellas Bike Trail goes north/south for forty-five miles. Cheers, Bruce
