    • Lovely family vacation home

      Reviewed by Julia M. on January 17, 2017 for their trip during January 2017

      This house is a wonderful house for a family vacation. The neighborhood is quiet and the gulf is just steps away. The open layout of the kitchen/dining/living room area allows your family to be all in one space all doing different activities. The landscaping is lush and beautiful while providing total privacy. The owners have renovated the house and the decor is bright and cheery. We will definitely return.

      Owner Response: Dear Julia, Thank you so much for your lovely review and detailed description, I highly appreciate it. It always gives me a warm feeling when I hear that our guests had a wonderful time with us. This is exactly how it should be! I wish you all the best and look forward to having you back soon, Tanja

I loved the open kitchen and the ability to cook all our meals while being close to restaurants in case I wanted a break. Quiet location but short drive to the action.

      This home surpassed our expectations. It's literally 32 steps from the sand. Semi private beach as its located north of the tourist beach. The house was decorated beautifully. We had one maintenance issue but they were quick to send someone out to fix it. We'd definitely book again.

    • Wonderful home, wonderful location

      Reviewed by Janet P. on August 09, 2016 for their trip during July 2016

      We stayed at this beautiful home from the 9th-16th of July and loved every minute of our stay. The proximity to the beach was great and we could even see a glimpse of the water from the front of the house. The house was neat and clean and had everything we needed. There were a few issues with missing remote controls and other minor things, like not being able to keep the fan on but the light off in the one bedroom but other then that, we couldn't have been happier. One recommendation is to purchase better beach chairs. I understand that these rust and are affected by the elements but I think investing in better ones would make them last longer. I would DEFINITELY stay here again, it was a GREAT vacation for my family and me!

      Owner Response: Dear Janet, Thank you so much for the great review. I am glad that you enjoyed our home so much. I do apologize for the minor issues. They have been taken care of already. I wish you all the best and hope to have you back! Warmly, Tanja

    • As close to the Gulf as you can get without being on the beach

      Reviewed by John K. on July 01, 2016 for their trip during June 2016

      The house is exactly as described and appears in photos... very well appointed and spacious. We had 6 adults, and a couple of guests who visited us during the week and we never felt cramped. The owners obviously take a great deal of pride in providing a clean, well maintained, comfortable and very appealing place to stay. There were plenty of bath and beach towels, rafts and other items for the beach, and the bottles of wine they provided were a nice touch. While we were there the hot tub was serviced and cleaned, and the couple who maintain the property stopped by to make sure everything was as it should be. Although there are two buildings that can be rented separately, they each have their own patio areas and grills, so privacy isn't an issue, nor is parking. There is room for two vehicles on the paved driveway, and gravel driveway provides another area to park. The home also has its own outdoor shower/foot wash, which makes it convenient to return from the beach and take a quick break from the sun. We really enjoyed bike riding and walking around the neighborhood and in to town and the pier. The neighborhood is very appealing and dog friendly. We have already recommended the home to others.

      Owner Response: Dear John, Thank you so much for leaving such a great review and for recommending us, we truly appreciate it. We endeavor to offer a great vacation experience to all of our guests and we are indeed very happy that you enjoyed your stay at The House. Warmly, Tanja

      First, Tanja was so easy to work with for the entire process, she responds back to all questions very quickly and is extremely professional and also so kind! The house is so close to the beach we walked barefoot every day! The hot tub was awesome, beds were very comfortable, and shed was stocked with loads of beach toys! The house was very clean and well decorated, the house contains every last detail you could want, even DVDs for the kids! We also rented the cottage which is perfect for a couple, so cute! The beach is very quiet, far away from the hustle and bustle of Clearwater! Listen to Tanja's restaurant recommendations, they are all great! I have no complaints or areas for improvement. We want to come back to Clearwater in the near future and we don't even have to think about looking for a place to stay, its 32 Steps from the Beach for us!! Melissa

      We recently stayed at 32 Steps to the Beach for a family vacation. The house is located exactly as described, directly across from access to a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach. The location is perfect, as it is quiet and private and yet you can walk to Pier 60/shops and restaurants within about 15-20 minutes. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and the welcome bottles of wine on the table were a nice touch. The kitchen was well-equipped, the living area comfortable, and the bedrooms were spacious. The outdoor patio was very private, and we really enjoyed spending time in the hot tub. The information binder included helpful recommendations for restaurants, sight-seeing, etc. We were lucky enough to be able to rent the Cottage for a few nights, and it was equally clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return again in the future! Thank you!

      Owner Response: Dear Alison, I am thrilled that you and your family had such a enjoyable and relaxing time at The House and The Cottage. The location of the property is indeed extraordinary. It was a pleasure sharing our home with you and I look forward to welcome you and your family again at 32 Steps to the Beach! Warmly, Tanja

      Everything about this house is gorgeous! The location, the Jolly Trolly, the beach, the community, the sunsets, all perfect!! We seriously wanted to stay forever......... One suggestion: Aside from an otherwise perfect experience and well stocked house, the beach chairs were old, rusty, broken, and just awful. Would not be a big thing if they weren't the one seat in the whole place that you used the most ;-) We almost went out and bought some for the house! Six, adjustable, new beach chairs would be far better than none that are usable. I understand wear and salt air, but replacing them occasionally is a small cost for what would have been a 5 star rating. I'm only bringing it up because it's such a small, easy way to make this a perfect experience. Thank you for being a pleasure to work with and sharing such a beautiful, quiet, special spot. We will be back!!!

      Owner Response: Dear Joani, Thank you for your great review. I am delighted that you had such a fantastic stay and are planing to visit again. Regarding the beach chairs, we do replace the chairs several times a year. Unfortunately, the beach climate means that they deteriorate very quickly and I am disappointed that they weren't up to the standard you, and we, expect (I replaced most of them last November...). We have asked the facilities manager to purchase new one. All the best, warmly Tanja

      My husband and I stayed here with two other couples. We had more than enough room and the home was impeccable! We thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the updated kitchen and loved spending the evenings in the hot tub. We were within walking distance to all of the shops, bars, and Pier 60. We loved walking across the street to the beach and watching the sunset. Tanja was a wonderful owner to rent from. She provided us with excellent recommendations for restaurants, pizza places, activities, etc. One couple was even accommodated when they landed earlier than expected and was able to drop their luggage off at the home early. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone; couples, families, etc. We are looking forward to staying at this rental again!

We had concerns traveling with two small dogs and to have a place this wonderful available to us was a godsend. It truly is just 32 steps from a beautiful beach, and this beach IS dog friendly and everyone in the area seems to love dogs. The home seems recently redecorated and is very pretty inside and out. Having a washer and dryer available is great. The welcome book left in the home was very useful when looking for places to eat and things to do.Thanks Tanja! The house is tucked into a quiet neighborhood and relaxation was there for the having. Highly recommend this home for those seeking quiet near a beach.

      Reviewed by Anonymous on February 14, 2016 for their trip during January 2016

      This is a great property situated just across the road from the beach. The property is in a normal residential area surrounded by other similar villas. Walking to the main row of shops, bars etc takes between 15 - 20 minutes. The villa is furnished to a high standard and has everything you need. It also has a safe, which we managed to lock ourselves out of. The owners were very quick in organising for their property managers to come out to us and help us get access back into it (they came within 30 minutes of making the call and were very friendly too). On arrival we found the house to be extremely well cleaned which was great. Overall a great stay in a great location.

      This home is beautiful! The house was absolutely immaculate when we arrived. It has so many nice touches and great amenities. Great kitchen, comfortable beds and couches, great washer and dryer, and every last detail was thought of - even the light switches are labeled. We were a group of six adults and all had plenty of room and were incredibly comfortable. The proximity to the beach is amazing! We loved being able to open the front door and see the ocean. And the hot tub - such a great perk and it was well maintained. The location is also ideal. The house is close to so many dining options and other fun activities but still secluded and quiet on a nice residential street. We did have a car, which was helpful, but we were also able to walk to many restaurants within 15 minutes. Tanja was so responsive during the booking process and also checked in with us during our stay. Everything went so smoothly that we didn't even need to have contact with her once we arrived. The two bottles of wine waiting for us was also a nice touch. I would not hesitate to book with Tanja again and we cannot wait to return! Thank you, thank you for a wonderful weekend!

    • A super comfortable Clearwater Beach retreat

      Reviewed by Bob S. from Bainbridge Island, WA on January 08, 2016 for their trip during December 2015

      Our stay coincided with a hectic holiday period that had the main resort area to the south quite jammed up with visitors so to have this wonderful house waiting for us nestled in a quiet neighborhood just one mile north of the chaotic fun happening downtown was perfect. Beach access immediately across the very quiet street out front was great and in most ways was actually preferable to being right on the sand. You are literally just a few steps from your front door to the gorgeous, uncrowded beach. The home is clean, well maintained and nicely updated and the photos on this site accurately depict the accommodations and the condition of this roomy cottage. A car is handy from this location if you require immediate mobility but we found ourselves often just catching the beach trolley that loops CB continuously when an unhurried trip to the bars, stores and restaurants downtown was called for. If your travels include a stay on Clearwater Beach you will not be disappointed staying here unless you would miss the hubbub and noise associated with staying in the high rise hotels downtown.

      Owner Response: Dear Bob and Mieko, Thank you for leaving us such a great review! I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at The House so much as well as the quiet and serenity of Clearwater North Beach. It was a pleasure sharing our home with you. Hopefully you will return soon. Warmly, Tanja

      Reviewed by Anonymous on December 27, 2015 for their trip during December 2015

      My wife and I spent a wonderful week here, with friends from Australia and their young children. The main house was impeccably kept, with updated furnishings and a bright, open layout that provided everyone plenty of space. Best of all, it really was just steps from the sand! Perks included lovely bedrooms, a very popular hot tub, off-street parking, outdoor shower, laundry, DVD player, beach gear and wifi. There’s also a grill and patio, but we spent our days on the Gulf. The North Beach community is nicely secluded from Clearwater’s main drag, but still only minutes to downtown (via foot, car or trolley). The distance ensures quiet mornings and uncrowded sunsets, while convenience stores are all within a 10-minute stroll. Even Pier 60 (the heart of Clearwater) is but a 2-mile beach walk. Great location for anyone hoping to leave the buzzing crowds behind!

      Owner Response: Dear Jarrett, thank you so much for the fabulous 5 star review! How wonderful that you had such a memorable vacation. We are so pleased that our home met your expectations and that you loved the calm, serene atmosphere of Clearwater North Beach. We hope to have you back soon! Warmly, Tanja

      Reviewed by James S. on December 11, 2015 for their trip during December 2015

      My wife and I travel with another couple on a routine basis. We have rented places all over the world through VRBO, including Italy, Germany, Spain, Grand Cayman, Belize, and of course all over the west coast of Florida and Key West. If you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable, stress-free beach experience, 32 Steps from the beach is for you. It is actually more roomy than the pictures on the website show. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds and showers are great. We used the fantastic washer-dryer and hot tub. Perfect. You are on north beach, so it is isolated and a good distance from the all-ways busy Pier 60, but that is what we wanted. Two things. First, you will need a car if you stay here. Second, beach things, chairs, bikes, kids toys, floatation devices, etc. are a bit dated. The owner (Tanja, who is great and responsive!) might want to think about upgrading these extras. But that said, there are plenty of chairs, and towels and toys to use. If you are group of up to six people who simply want to chill, sip drinks, and enjoy the sun in the a comfortable house, this is the place for you!

      Owner Response: Dear James, Thank you for your wonderful feedback. I am thrilled that you loved our home so much and enjoyed a relaxing break at The House! Regarding the beach equipment, we really try to stock it up regularly with new supplies but at the end the sand and salt wear it out quickly. Because of this, we were actually considering not to offer beach equipment any longer but most of our guests really appreciate this free extra. Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

There were a few things we had difficulty with, hence the 4 stars instead of 5; our codes to enter didn't work and the only person we were able to reach was the maintenance man and he was very unpleasant/rude to my husband, the cleaners had left their keys to all the houses they clean outside the house door so we had keys to over 40 houses and they didn't pick them up until after we'd been there 3 days, the hot tub is in desperate need of cleaning (full of sand, not all jets work properly), front door drags on the house, no springs in the screen doors of both the cottage and house. Despite the minor problems we will definitely be back. We feel the cost was reasonable, the owners keep good tabs on the house and guests and are prompt to respond to emails when booking.

      Owner Response: Dear Jennifer, thank you so much for having stayed with us and your feedback. I am glad that you and your family had a nice time at The House and plan to visit again. I do apologize for the minor problems you experienced. I already talked with my team about the issues. I just wish you would have let me know while you were still at The House. I could have sent the pool company over to clean the hot tub again. They usually come in twice a week to clean it. I am not sure what exactly happened with the digital entry code as we had never problems before. It must have worked at the end as you did not ask for a new code? Please accept my apologies again. I hope to have you and your family back soon. Warmly, Tanja

    • Perfect Clearwater beach vacation & get-away!

      Reviewed by Row from UK on September 16, 2015 for their trip during August 2015

      The beach house is just perfect - the location is great (the quiet North end of Clearwater beach) - the beach (& beautiful sunsets) are literally just over the road! The house has a cottagey feel and has been refurbished to the highest standard - comfortable beds, new washer/dryer, stylish, practical fitted kitchen, hot tub, patio with plenty of furniture and relaxing luxurious beach styled decor. It was perfect for us with 2 teenage girls (a room & big bed each!) and there is so much to do in Clearwater. You can even walk to the pier and great restaurants along the beach. Thank so much - we had a lovely time!!

      Owner Response: Dear Rowena, thank you so much for the fabulous review! We are thrilled that you and your family had such a memorable vacation with us and we hope to have you back soon! Take good care, Tanja

      We are a family of 5 including two teenage boys and everyone had a blast at the wonderful, fantastic and beautiful beach house. I've been used to luxury and 5-star hotels in my work life and this property meets that particular standard in amenities, location, decoration, etc. The home has an airy feel with warm and cozy decor everywhere. Tanja's house instructions and tips are very helpful and you're never at a loss for things to do. This could easily be a year-round home for us. Thanks for the great treat!

      Owner Response: Dear Cassia, thank you so much for the fantastic review! I really do appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback. It is wonderful to hear that you and your family had such a fantastic vacation. I look very much forward to having you back! Warmly, Tanja

    • Incredible Vacation Home

      Reviewed by Staci from Keller, TX on August 10, 2015 for their trip during August 2015

      Being emplyed by an airline, I travel to many destinations. I have to say that this home and location in Clearwater was one of my favorites of all time. The cottage was beautiful and resided on a well-maintained corner lot. It felt like home the moment we arrived and truly had everything our family needed and more. The storage by the carport was full of chairs, umbrellas, toys for the beach, boogie boards, etc. It was SO close and literally steps from the beach. The location was ideal to play on the beach and still head back for lunch, refreshments, etc as needed. A very nice option when traveling with kids. The beach was beautiful and a bit remote from the hussle and crowds near Pier 60. The weather was perfect and we truly cannot wait to plan a week to return next year. Tanja was readily accessible and extremely helpful post-booking in making us feel welcome and informed. If you a reading this review, I encourage you to book a trip to "32 steps to the Beach" soon. You will not be disappointed.

      Owner Response: Dear Staci, thank you so much for your beautiful review! It makes us really happy when our guests have such a fabulous time. Our goal is for our guests to have a relaxing and happy vacation. From the moment I walked into our new home I fell in love with it and I am grateful that our guests seem to love '32 Steps to the Beach' as much as we do! I look forward to having you back soon!

      Exceeded all of our expectations! The home was impeccably clean, beautiful, and perfectly located. VERY close to the beach, we walked back and forth countless times and it was incredibly easy and quick! We were so comfortable and felt right at home, everything was new and perfectly appointed. The owner could not be nicer! She really went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable including purchasing a high chair and pack and play for our infant! We hope to return to this dream home every year!

      Owner Response: Dear Alexis, thank you so much for the fantastic review and your kind words. I am really happy that you had such a wonderful vacation with your family and loved our new home that much! Your compliment means a lot to me, especially as I know that you have been vacationing in Clearwater Beach for years. I look very much forward to having you back next year! We can see by the increasing number of returning guests that our passion for our homes is appreciated by so many. Take good care! Fondly, Tanja

      Reviewed by Jackie W. on July 25, 2015 for their trip during July 2015

      The facilities were very nice and well furnished. I loved the availability of the chairs for the beach. The kitchen was well equipped for our purposes. The only bad thing was the weather. it rained more than we saw sun, but that happens sometime. We did come home a day early because of weather. We would like to come back again sometime and I would recommend the house and cottage to my friends.

      Owner Response: Dear Jackie, thank you so much for your review. I am happy that you and your family liked The House and I hope to having you back soon! I am sure the weather will be better next time you venture to Clearwater! Warmly, Tanja

      This was our first vacation rental and I feel for any future rental because our vacation at the "32 Steps from the Beach" was an incredible, relaxing experience that will be hard to meet by any comparison. The home was immaculate and very, very well apportioned and provided everything we could have wanted, including kitchen spices, beach chairs, towels, toys, and bikes that allowed for a family experience that the Grandparents, Parents and Grandchildren that will fondly remember. We had a great time and would rent this beautiful bungalow again in a New York minute.

    • Love at First Sight

      Reviewed by Lisa from Westhampton Beach, NY on June 08, 2015 for their trip during May 2015

      Over the past 20 years, my husband and I rented beach houses along Eldorado Ave. in Clearwater Beach, FL every July, usually rotating between three properties. We consider ourselves "expert" when it comes to picking the perfect beach house on Clearwater's North Beach. This year we were in the area in March and came across Tanja's "32 Steps to the Beach." And, we fell in love. Just stepping foot inside her home, we knew that this was a special property. We immediately booked the house for a week vacation in May. And, now that we are back home in NY, we are constantly on Tanja's site looking for additional availability. This spacious and beautifully decorated beach home is a gem! It is elegantly staged and fully equipped to make for an unforgettable beach vacation. It is meticulously maintained starting with Maggie's Housekeeping Service, to the spa service, to Jeff, the handy man, all of whom were cheerfully accommodating. We felt as if the stars were aligned at Tanja's property. Not only is North Beach one of our favorite beaches, Tanja's house is now our favorite Florida vacation home. Our week was a mini-retreat to paradise.

      Owner Response: Dear Lisa and Dennis, thank you so much for your kind and generous review! We are delighted that our efforts to offer our guests an unforgettable vacation in our beautiful home are so appreciated. It was a pleasure to accommodate you and we look very much forward to having you back in the near future! Fondly, Tanja

    • Great vacation cottage

      Reviewed by Scott from Colorado, USA on June 08, 2015 for their trip during May 2015

      We stayed at 32 Steps last year and the improvements have been significant! There have been too many changes to list, from the paint, decorations, linens, to the utensils and dishes. We still enjoy the relaxing patio with a view of the Gulf but with privacy foliage. On hot crowded beach days, it's great to have private covered parking and be able to walk 32 steps to the sand. Very comfortable in a quiet North Beach area with a short walk to town, where the action is. Highly recommend this vacation rental. We plan to return!

      Owner Response: Dear Scott, thank you so much for your kind words! We are thrilled that you love all the updates and had such a nice stay with us. It is always a pleasure to have returning guests and we look forward to have you back in the near future. Warmly, Tanja

    • Delightful home on Stunning Beach

      Reviewed by Johna & Bryon from Breckenridge Colorado on June 04, 2015 for their trip during May 2015

      We thoroughly enjoyed 32 Steps to the Beach! So much that we decided to stay an extra day. I own a vacation rental company in the mountains so I know quality properties. The home is beautifully decorated in a pleasant Florida contemporary style. My parents who are in their 80’s were with us and they were completely comfortable. My brother and sister in law live in Clearwater so this was perfect for them to come visit us and enjoy the beach and dinner on the large patio. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we need to and the patio has a nice new Weber Spirit grill – the same one I have at home. The beach is literally a 1 minute walk and the sand is white and stunning. The north end of Clearwater Beach is very quiet and far less busy than near the pier to the south. We enjoyed taking long hikes north on the beach in the morning and evenings. Sunsets are spectacular on Clearwater Beach and each nigh everyone goes to the beach with a glass of wine to watch and enjoy. The owner Tanja was very helpful with information and I recommend you download the app to get all the local information. We have been to Clearwater Beach many times but this is the first time we have rented a home and we definitely plan to come back to North Clearwater Beach.

      Owner Response: Dear Johna and Bryon, Thank you so much for the beautiful comments about '32 Steps to the Beach' and its location. We love our new bright beach house, its proximity to the beach and the quiet neighborhood - and we feel grateful for sharing it with guests like you! We are thrilled that you had such a wonderful vacation with us and even decided to extend your stay! Looking forward to having you back soon! Warmly, Tanja

      32 steps exceeded our expectations as a wintertime vacation spot. The home was just the right size, with just the right amenities, in just the right location, had been recently and tastefully updated and was an excellent home-base for our family. The home-cottage combination was a good fit for our three generations. We enjoyed the short walk to the superb beach, saw dolphins, played in the sand and in the waves. We took 600 pictures! 32 steps provided us with a delightful week of creating memories.

      Owner Response: Dear John and family, Thank you for the marvelous review. This is exactly what our vision and our goal is: families enjoying a wonderful and memorable vacation together at 32 Steps to the Beach and filling our home with laughter and happiness! Thank you again for the lovely family picture - you all look very happy and content indeed! I hope to have you back soon! Warmly, Tanja
