Our Vison

At Stay & Play Clearwater our mission is to ensure that every guest has a Clearwater Beach getaway that is memorable for all the right reasons. We strive to be your respite from all life’s stresses on your adventure in sunny and beautiful Clearwater Beach. Our guests can check their worries at the door and enjoy a carefree vacation at your home away from home in Clearwater, whether it’s for a night, a weekend, or an extended stay!


1000 Palms is not a corporate property lining the pockets of billionaire real estate moguls. Our founders are brothers who run the business as a family enterprise. Odds are good that you’ll see one of the brothers, or both, maintaining the property, offering golf cart rides, or managing operations at our sister business, Idle Speed Watersports, during your stay.



Had a great experience, thanks guys!

We enjoyed our week at Clearwater Beach. The space clean and the perfect size for two people. It was great to be two blocks from the beach and we could walk to all of the shops and restaurants.

I rented a kayak- great time! My kids went on the dolphin island jet ski adventure and had a blast. Photo package was worth it too- no need to risk losing their phones. Staff were very friendly and took great care of us.

Stay and Play is the best rental source on Clearwater Beach. Great equipment, fair prices and the owners and team are helpful, knowledgable and super nice. They are my go to for carts, jet skis, paddleboards when guests visit. I recommend with out hesitation. They worked with me to be sure we had a great experience. Excellent communication and overall the best you will find.

This was our third stay at Stay and Play and there will certainly be a fourth. That should tell you enough but it doesn't really even start. Super comfortable waterfront location with plenty of places to visit with friends or other guests or places to chill on your own. Comfortable and clean accommodations. Every time we come here there are additional amenities added to the property. Andrew and Jocelyn and their staff do everything to make you comfortable and we feel right at home. Bikes and kayaks are added bonus along with water sports and tours right on location at the best prices in Clearwater. Two block walk to the beach and walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars. A must visit location!

Great place for your rental needs!!! We rented the golf cart to go around the island for a day. Next year we are going to look at renting the jet skis and possibly the house boat! Awesome people to work with!!!

We had such an amazing time staying here! The location was perfect, set up right on a beautiful canal and only a short walk to the beach. Our room was comfy and had everything we needed for our stay. The property has great amenities and outdoor spaces to hangout in (washer/dryer, grill, corn hole, outdoor tv & patio seating). We love that there are water sports offered right off of the dock as well! Kayaking, paddle boarding, jet skiing, parasailing and boat charters all offered as extras right on the property! The hosts are so friendly and welcoming. I can’t wait to stay here again!

We just spent a week on the houseboat that is one of the options the Stay & Play hosts offer. We would call it “glamping” on the water. We found the experience to be wonderful and memorable. The truly unique houseboat is clean, comfortable, and relaxing. We spent many hours at our favorite spot on the back deck of the boat sitting and watching marine nature and relaxing (pic attached). The way the houseboat is positioned you are facing the sun from sunrise to sunset. Not many folks can say they watched the Super Bowl, while floating on the water and eating shrimp. Andrew and the team are the most accommodating hosts we have ever experienced, and we are retired, so we have been around a bit.
