“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

We just returned from our stay at the Parker Manor Resort one week ago today, and let me just say WOW!! It was so amazing and Dawn & Bud are some of the nicest people we have ever met. They're very attentive and make you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive, almost like family. This was our first stay, and I have to admit that we really wish we would have discovered this little gem sooner. The grounds are very well taken care of and our room was incredible, not to mention spotless. They have literally thought of everything under the sun to accommodate their guests. A wonderful pool & spa pool, towels, books to read, three piers, grills, laundry facilities, just to name a few. The other guests were very pleasant as well and we enjoyed many great conversations throughout our stay. We highly recommend Parker Manor Resort. You won't be disappointed!!!

This was our second visit, this time with the grandkids (11 & 7). The resort is excellent with two pools (one jacuzzi), 3 fishing docks, pool table, library and all the extras you will need . The 2 bed deluxe apartment (12) on the top floor was fully equiped with every possible item including washer dryer , 2 bathrooms and beautifully kept. The balcony offered great views over the complex (the kids always in sight) and over the surrounding waters and is great value for money. Dawn and Bud are a lovely couple and nothing is too much trouble, anything you need they will provide. The resort is well located near the beach and pier, with local amenities close by. I cant recommend this place enough....we will definetly return.

Room Tip: If you can manage stairs ,choose the top floor

I travelled with my wife and 2 small children for a week in May, and we made our decision to stay based on other TripAdvisor recommendations. Let me just say that we could not fathom a more comfortable, stress free vacation than the one we enjoyed at this place. We were willing to sacrifice being "right on the beach" because we wanted a place that had multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Not only did we have space, we had a full kitchen (which saves serious money considering how much it is to eat out every meal) and we had the ability to fish practically right out our back door. And all this was literally half the price of what you would pay to be in a chain hotel with one room containing 2 double beds. And the beach is a whopping 5 minute walk from our room. This is a no-brainer. Bud and Dawn have a great thing going, and we will no doubt be staying with them for all our Clearwater vacations.

We have just returned from spending 6 days at the Parker Manor Resort, it was much more than we expected, the condo is clean, well kept, and very roomy. Dawn and Bud make you more than welcome, and nothing is too much trouble for them. There are two pools, one is a spa pool with plenty of sunbeds around the pool and umbrellas for shade. Fishing rods are also supplied as are beach chairs and pool towels. We all had a lovely time here, restaurants within 5-10 mins walking distance. We found out that people go back here year after year, we will definately be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the waterway

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The kitchen was fully equipped and ready to use - it even had a crock pot! The rooms were so clean and comfortable! The owners have thought of everything- board games and cards for rainy days, pool cues and sticks, beach chairs and towels, books and videos, laundry baskets, fishing poles... all available for your convenience. The building is old and shows it's age but they have kept the Old Florida charm so it adds to the whole experience.

We have stayed many times at the Parker Manor, and have always been delighted with both the accommodation, facilities and real nice owners. There is a lovely large swimming pool and also a warm spa pool. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Its so convenient to the beach, resteraunts and public transportation for those that don't rent cars. Can't recommend this enough. You would not be disappointed at the Parker Manor.

Just returned from five days at Parker Manor. Two bedroom unit with two baths and two tvs was well stocked and very nicely deocrated without have too much around in terms of knick knacks - a good thing!. Lovely view of canal and very short two block walk over to beach for sunsets. I echo all the glowing reports from other reviews - they are justified. The owners are so nice and there seem to be many repeat guests. Would definitely recommend over big chain hotels that are more expensive. the very fist thing we noticed was that it was immaculately clean. Hope to return in future.
