You won't be able to explore this whole area in a month but I garauntee you won't get bored.
To piggyback on this there is a neighborhood called Sandbridge south of the boardwalk area of VB that is away from the bustle but close enough to partake. It's 90% residential and has an Outer Banks feel. Lots of rentals and they fill up quickly beginning this time of year. The Virginia Aquarium is close by which when added to the attractions above creates a REALLY well rounded vacation.

There's also the ferry to Delaware. There's plenty to do in the general area. If you're afraid to venture out or don't have a car it would be boring, but if you have a car and are willing to explore the area you'd be fine.

I do think that staying in one house at the beach anywhere for over 2 weeks does get repetitive, though.
Clearwater is part of the second largest metro area in FL, the Tampa Bay area which features quite a bit in Tampa and neighboring St Pete. It's also about 90 minutes from Disney. So if the OP was bored there they simply weren't looking. In terms of Cape May, one can only hit so many shops with candles and knickknacks or antiques before that gets a bit old, and yes eating out is important but beyond that time involvement then what? Being without a car in either place would be too much to handle but if the OP doesn't expand their horizons a bit with day trips, any place will become boring over the course of 30 days.

Clearwater beach is very walkable and has nice ambiance; also massive hotels being built, which will make the place even more touristy (some don't like that). The city of CLW is not walkable because it's a large area, but yes not far away from Disney in ORL so that's an obvious advantage(plus you have warm water for much of the year to swim).
