    4/5

    We booked Spring Break late and were happy to find Driftwood Cottage on VRBO. We rent a ton, so this review is in comparison to others we've stayed at and would have been a 5 if not for this stuff. The rate is pretty high for what you get, paying for location because you are a few steps from the beach and a few blocks from restaurants. The pictures are either old or from a similar unit, but bathroom (shower) picture is not accurate, they are directionally correct. The unit was very clean, but had a damp musty smell to it that we couldnt quite shake even turning up AC (might just be FL). It is pretty noisy when people are in the unit above walking around and as ground floor unit, you have to always have the blinds closed becasue people walk directly at eye level along length of unit.. The pool area furniture is getting very worn and could use a refresh, but the small pool was nice to have after a day out. JR and Susan were responsive, but we found communication and payment confusing with Evolve property mgmt and we didn't appreciate a $100 fee to check in/out early to accommodate for cleaning. Plus, all communication comes from Evolve, and it isn't exaclty clear, so we had another couple walk into our unit out of confusion. It's a nice area, but there are a ton of rentals and resort options. It worked for myself and my daughter booking late and we loved the Clearwater area, but we will likely try a different option next time.

    5/5

    Very nice reno of an old beachfront property. Both beds comfy but the guest bed is very squeaky. Slept alone and just turning makes sound. Very responsive management and location great for beach and very easy walk to restaurants and stores.

    Everything was clean and as advertised. The location was great- within walking distance to town but quiet and right on the ocean. Nest little house!
