“Average quality and over priced”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Stayed here for the one night after finding out workmen were on site for days and so moved on, this worked out to be right for us. The room chosen was a 1 bedroom with a separate sitting room, all were clean and ok for 2, the bathroom was very small, dated and poor shower.
The air con only served the sitting room so the bedroom door had to be left open to stay cool in the night , this defeated the object of a separate room.
The pool was just ok although only 1/2 the water jets worked, the outlook around the pool overlooked the road and adjacent property car park.
The price compared to the room / facilities did not match

We stayed here recently and really enjoyed our visit to Clearwater. We wanted a small place in a quiet part of town. The room was clean and we had a small kitchen area too, which worked out if you did not want to eat breakfast or lunch out everyday. The owners really cater to you and it is more personal stay like a bed and breakfast atmosphere. It is close to the beach and you can walk to restaurants as well. We enjoyed our stay Helen & Bill!

Room Tip: If you want a bigger room go for the suite.

My husband and I spent one great week there and we only have good things to say about the beach house. Memorial Day Weekend was hectic at Cleawater and staying there we could jump to busy places anytime within 10 minutes of walking(the accomodation is really close to the beach, bars and restaurants) or if we wanted, we could retrieve ourselves to the room to get some rest. We, basically, just parked our car there and didn't move it. The room was clean and cute and the place was quiet at anytime of the day. The owners gave us some great tips on where to go and everything they suggested was good. The fact that it is not at the front beach turned out not to be so important because we could sit on the patio and watch the view at the back side of Clearwater which was good too. Also, compared to the other motels around it, the BeachHouse stood out basically beacause it looks and it is clean, neat and cute. We definitely recommend the Beach House. Now, that we found this place we are seriously considering visiting again. Overall, staying there greatly contributed on us having such a great time.

A warm thank you to Helen and Bill for making my stay so enjoyable, they were the perfect hosts. The Beachouse is a small quiet property off the main road which is kept immaculate and clean. I recently visited Clearwater Beach during Memorial Day weekend and looked on TripAdvisor for reviews and found this hidden gem so decided to stay here. I booked a studio suite which included a king size bed, TV, refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, sink, dishes and utensils. It would be perfect for two people for a short stay, for longer stays, I would ask about the larger accommodations with a full kitchen. This is an adult only property, so if you are looking for relaxation, you will find it here.

The beach is in walking distance and parking (for a fee) is close by if you prefer to drive. Weather was warm, sunny, the powder soft sand never seemed to get too hot and the clear Gulf water was 80* during my stay. The sunsets are great and Pier 60 has lots going on with music and fun entertainment, also in walking distance.

Helen will suggest good restaurants upon your arrival and she is spot on for the place to go for great seafood and Italian food. There is a Publix close by which I used to put a few things in my refrigerator like beverages, fruit, and snacks for the beach. There are shuttles and transportation to/from the restaurants, however, the airports (Tampa or St. Pete) are approx. 30-45 mins away depending on traffic. I rented a car so I had my own transportation during my stay. The causeway on/off the island can get backed up during the late afternoon and traffic/parking around town can be challenging especially on a holiday weekend. During the week, the beach crowds were light and on weekends a few more locals were present, however, if you get to the beach early, you will get a good spot near the water. Chair/umbrella rentals are $25/day, so since I was there for 5 days I bought my own chair in a store to use for the week.

The pros of this beautiful and tranquil beach are worth experiencing and the Gulf water is warmer than any Atlantic ocean temp on the northeast coast. The constant breeze makes it most comfortable even on those warm days. I would highly recommend The Beachouse as your next destination, I would definitely return.

We stayed here based on the tripadvisor reviews and they lived up to the hype. The owners were charming and helped us as we arrived after hours with providing a key. Super nice people and a great location. If you are looking for a quaint stay in a reasonable condo this is right up your alley.

The room was very clean on arrival and they even provided extra sheets upon request. When we were checking in Helen the owner wrote out a map of all places to hit for a quick meal and where to go for the best sit down lunches and dinners. She was spot on as every place we ate at was fantastic.

We will absolutely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the studio condo and it was perfect for myself and my girlfriend. The pool is a little...

This little place is just off the sometimes noisy main street along Clearwater beach, but a quick walk to the beach, which is beautiful. The owners are very helpful the minute you check in, with lots of dining recommendations. We had a studio room with the kitchen necessities and it was fine for 3 days. For a longer trip I would try to get their larger style room.

Room Tip: I would inquire about the firmness of the beds in each room next time, we prefer firmer mattresses.

My husband and I just returned from a week trip to Clearwater Beach. The Beachouse was a great place for us to stay. It was very quiet which we like and it was accessible to everything. We were able to take a short walk to the beach or to the many shopping and dining options that are available in Clearwater Beach. The room had a comfy bed and a fridge, sink and microwave which was nice because we don't like to have to rely on eating out every meal. The owners were there every day to check in on things and were very hospitable. They also had some great recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. If we come back to Clearwater Beach we would certainly consider staying again!
