JTS Properties is the dream of a dentist from Illinois whose
first visit to Clearwater Beach, Florida was in the early 1980's.
Over the years he visited several times and developed close friendships with
many residents. He finally purchased a second home on the island ( See "The
Beach House") and equipped it with all the amenities of home.
After receiving feedback from renting the house occasionally to families he
realized that he could provide a quality family vacation on Clearwater Beach
that would closely approximate what it would be like to live on the beach.
In the ensuing years he purchased and rehabbed several residences on the
beach making them mini resorts for families or private quality getaway's for
couples. The dentist has worked hard to make sure every detail is taken
care of so you can enjoy "Life like a native" on Clearwater Beach, Florida.

This is a list of my personal favorite
Frenchy's Rockaway Grill
(727 446 4844)
7 Rockaway St.
Beach. American food and fresh seafood.
Alcohol served. Open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
Frenchy owns four restaurants on
Beach. They all have similar
menus but this one has an outdoor deck overlooking the beach and the Gulf.
Grouper sandwiches and She-crab soup are a menu highlight and Frenchy owns
his own seafood company to ensure fresh high quality. Prices are
inexpensive to moderate.
Kiku Japanese Restaurant
(727 461 2633)
483 Mandalay Ave.
Beach. Sushi and traditional Japanese food. Tables and mats for dining
with a sushi bar. Open for dinner only, 6 nights a week closed Sunday.
Located upstairs in the two story pink
building. Alcohol served (beer & wine only).
Best sushi on the beach. Excellent Japanese food
with polite high quality service. Sushi bar here is where it's at. I have
never had a bad meal here. Prices are moderate to expensive.
Bob Heileman's Beachcomber
(727 442 4144) 447
Business casual to dressy. American and Continental fare. Open for lunch
and dinner 7 days a week. Alcohol served (full bar).
This elegant restaurant serves a varied menu. There
is not a questionable entre on this menu! Service is spectacular. Food
quality is unbelievable for a restaurant on the beach. Wine list is
wonderful. Prices are moderate to expensive but well worth it. Be sure to
have time for a cocktail at the bar from "Don, Jerry, or Matt." They are
experts at their craft!
(727 446 9463) 447
Business casual to dressy. American and Continental fare. Open for dinner
only, 7 nights a week. Alcohol served (full bar).
This sister restaurant to Bob Heileman's (owned by
the same family) serves a younger crowd. Menu is not as varied but you can
sit in a fabulous outside dining area lush with
Florida vegetation. The specials
are the ticket here and each night brings a different excellent choice. The
wine list is spectacular! Prices are moderate to expensive.
Island Way Grill
(727 461 6617)
20 Island Way
Beach. Business Casual to dressy. American, Continental, Sushi bar. Open
for dinner 7 nights per week. Alcohol served (full bar).
This restaurant is on Island
Estates just off the main beach. Take the roundabout off the beach and make
a left at the first stoplight. Restaurant is 1 block down on your left.
High quality food in an elegant atmosphere. High activity. The place to
see and be seen. Outdoor dining and an outdoor bar with leather sportfisherman seats for bar stools. Expansive menu and great wine list.
The lobster and beef dishes are out of this world and the sushi is awesome!
The Columbia Restaurant
(727 596 8400) 1241 Gulf boulevard (next to the Marriott Sand Key)
Casual dress on the deck overlooking the
Business casual to dressy in the main restaurant. Spanish food.
Open for lunch and dinner 7 nights a week. Alcohol served (full bar).
This restaurant, on Sand Key, is a short drive from
Beach. Just go around the roundabout
to the south beach and follow the road across the bridge to Sand Key. This
restaurant is next to the Marriott. Incredible food. If you have never
tried Spanish food you are in for a treat! An incredible view of the
Intracoastal waterway while you dine on the very best Spanish food
anywhere. Moderate to expensive.
(727 734 Dine)
315 Main St.,
Business casual to dressy. American and Continental food. Open for dinner
only 7 nights a week. Alcohol served (full bar).
Reservations are a must at this: the most intimate
and romantic restaurant in the area. It�s a little drive off
Beach but well worth the trip. Take
the roundabout off
Beach and go to downtown
Clearwater. Turn left onto
Alternate route 19 north. This eventually is a beautiful drive following
the intracoastal waterway (breathtaking at sunset). When you see the
Dunedin marina on your left the road makes a
right turn. At the nest stoplight go straight rather than follow Alt
19. The Black Pearl is on your right in the first block. Even with
reservations there may be a short wait.
Try the Chik-a-boom-room
next door for a cocktail or wine. Every dish is extraordinary with
the menu changing on a regular basis. Ask for the butternut squash ravioli
for an appetizer. The rack of lamb is to die for! After dinner or before
explore Dunedin; home to artists and artisans and their shops (hours vary).
I SINCERELY HOPE
THAT YOUR TRIP TO CLEARWATER BEACH IS THE BEST VACATION YOU, YOUR FAMILY,
AND FRIENDS HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AGAIN SOON.
As we say on the
beach, "It's just another day in paradise! "
Thank you for your
