‘Paradise on earth’ you could say Clearwater Beach, Florida is, rated one of the best beaches in the United States, full of beautiful resorts, recreation, shopping, and fun all around. Sure, there are numerous stunning beaches around the world, but what makes Clearwater Beach unique and beautiful? Trip101 has the scoop on some of Vrbo’s best vacation rentals, so get ready and take notes if you’re considering taking a spring or summer break here!

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 20, 2024.

1. Cozy house that can sleep up to four people

This 907-square-foot (84.26-square-meter) house is wonderfully furnished to accommodate up to four people. There’s a queen-size bed in the bedroom and an extra sleeper sofa in the living room. The living room also features internet and cable television, so you can catch a movie or show here. When you’re hungry, head to the kitchen, where you can find all the essential appliances and cooking utensils.
