Hello,

John and I have lived in Dunedin for 30 years. John is a Coast Guard licensed captain and I am a Registerd Nurse.

John or Sheila Poley purchased this villa in 2000

We discovered the Dunedin area while on a sailing adventure from Texas to Cocoa Beach Florida.

We enjoy this area because of the natural sandy beaches and barrier islands, dolphins and manatees, fishing, boating, Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island 2 miles from the villas,

kayaking, biking the bike trail, and the charming small town atmosphere of Dunedin. Tarpon Springs and Clearwater Beach minutes away.

Where do I begin. The villas are in pristine condition. They give you a pass that is good for any Florida State Park - AWESOME! Honeymoon Island is so beautiful and so close to the villas. We rode the bikes that John and Sheila provide. Went Kayaking. Fishing right of the dock and caught a small bull shark (2ft).

John took us to 3 Rooker Island and is it beautiful and magnificent!!! John has some great life experiences, very interesting - ask him about them. John has such a great attitude towards life and it shows. We loved 3 Rooker Island so much that we rented John's Pontoon boat for a very good price for the day. With that said.....

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale. Tale of a fateful trip. That started with 3 vacationers and ended up with John the hero. When I first arrived at 3 Rooker Island tide was high and I decided to park on the South end of the Island where nobody was and not where John had taken us the day before. Mindful of the tide I checked on the boat several times the first part of the day. Then we ran into a sand dollar gold mine about a mile up the beach (Close to where John took us the first time). We found over 200 sand dollars. I decided I should go check on the boat. Tide was much lower. Needed my son to help me get the boat into deeper water. Trekked back the mile to get my son and Trekked the mile to get back to the boat....... The tide had dropped some more.... uhggg... enough that the pontoons were touching mud. Called John and asked when high tide was coming in and he said not till 11PM and it was 3PM and the lowest tide wasn't until 6PM. John came to the island, smiled and gave us a ride back to the villas. John's attitude could have been one of being a parent and scold me for not parking the boat where ALL the other boats parked. I felt like Captain Nimrod cause I knew I had to keep an eye on the tide and yet I still let the boat get stranded. John took me back to the boat the next morning - even offered to let me go fishing before I brought it back!!!! John has a great personality and is very friendly and easy to talk to. His smile and laugh is contagious.

We seen - Dolphins, Manatees, Sharks, Crabs, Catfish, Dogfish, Pinfish, Urchins, Conchs, Pelicans, Egrets, Osprey, Turtles, Lizards, Stingrays. The birds will eat out of your hand at the villas. Get some hot dogs or fish. There is a bait shop a couple of blocks up the street you can ride the bikes to.

MEGA ERHOLSAME FAMILIENTAGE IN DUNEDIN

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren eine Woche bei John und Sheyla und fühlten uns ausserordentlich wohl!
Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr sauber und gepflegt mit einer charmanten Einrichtung, die einem entspannte und angenehme Ferientage ermöglicht.
Dunedin bietet viel Abwechslung, von Boots- , Fahrrad- , Kajak-Touren über Schopping, Strand, Angeln oder einfach nur die Seele baumeln lassen.
Die perfekte Mischung um in einer Familie mit Kindern jeden glücklich zu machen.
John und Sheyla sind vor Ort immer erreichbar und helfen gern weiter. Wir fühlten uns selten so willkommen wie hier.

A WONDERFUL SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family with two adult children, and we had a fantastic time. The appartment is wonderfully equipped with everything you need, and the location couldn't have been better. John and Sheila were very helpful and had lots of useful tips.

Our highlight was a boat ride with John to look at dolphins and go to the beach on honeymoon island. That was a wonderful experience that none of us will ever forget.

EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR FLORIDA VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Dockside Villas Jan 18-25, 2014 and had a wonderful time! The condo itself is clean, modern, comfortable and well-furnished. But what set this rental apart from the others was the delightful *free* boat ride we got from the owner! We saw dozens of dolphins! And we learned a lot from Captain John about the area. A huge plus for us was being so close to Honeymoon Island - it is about 5 minutes away and has nature trails, a huge beach, etc. The condo rental came with a pass to Honeymoon Island so it didn't cost us to get into the park! Can't beat that!

IMMACULATE MODERN WELL-EQUIPPED VILLA

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at John and Sheila's villa was wonderful. They are attentive, professional and personable hosts who responded immediately to any of our needs. The unit is immaculately cleaned, up to our own crazy standards of cleanliness which are rarely met when we travel! It is updated, modern and contains all the amenities you would need. Additionally, it is also very quiet. The writeup describes the home perfectly and there were no surprises or disappointments. John took us for our promised boat tour, and spent extra time showing us around. We encountered numerous dolphins and took some wonderful photos of them, as well as the overall scenery. I would not hesitate to return here or to recommend it to friends, relatives or travelers in search of a beautiful place to stay. We had a car, and it was just a five minute ride into historic Dunedin and all its shops and restaurants. We'd love to come back during the winter, but it's already booked!!!

PERFECT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect vacation!
Spent a sisters weekend at the Villas and this place was perfect. We were looking for a place where we could spend time together to catch up and it also had to provide some entertainment options. We picked the perfect place; the bike trail was a few blocks away and the water was just outside our back door. We biked (bikes provided) to downtown (10 mins) for breakfast then biked alongside the water front for the afternoon. The next day was boating (also provided by Dockside Villas); blue skies, calm water and a lot of laughing.

The villas provided plenty of space for the 3 of us, the beds were comfortable and it was super clean. We had a full size kitchen with everything we needed to cook and enjoyed dinner out on the full size patio watching the other boaters coming back from a day on the water. It’s a quiet place and we hardly saw any of the other guest. We wanted a place where we could spend some time together without the crowds and noise of a hotel. Our last night there we walked a block to an awesome seafood patio restaurant and for appetizers, wine and music.

We can’t wait to go back! Thanks John and Sheila for making our stay so wonderful.
