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.
This was one of our best vacations. The owners, Sheila and John, are wonderful people and very easy to work with. The condo is stocked with everything you may possibly need away from home and is very comfortable and squeaky clean. A ride on a boat was an absolute hit with my family - we picked great shells on a remote island, saw dolphins play and kids were ecstatic on being allowed to drive a boat under John's supervision. Kayaking on the canal brought a lot of fun, too. And quiet mornings with a book and cup of coffee on the porch watching sun rising above the beautiful garden was my absolute favorite. Thank you for our great time, John and Sheila, we'd love to be back in the future years!
I can not say enough about how great this rental is. Location is ideal, condition of the property is excellent and the owners are very accommodating. Travelling with my 1 year old daughter, they had a travel crib all ready for us when we got there. The boat trip was particularly great and nearby beach was amazing. There is something to be said for sitting on the back porch having a nice breakfast or bbq'ing a nice dinner out there. Will definitely be booking again.
Loved our stay and the the hospitality at Dockside Villas. Plan to visit again in 2016.
The Everybody Family
Totally agree with previous reviews - the condo was spotless, lovely, and contained everything we needed for a week away from ice and snow. It's location near Honeymoon Island state park was ideal and the owners' including a park pass was extremely considerate. We could walk to a nearby restaurant and local Publix and made good use of the supplied bikes to ride the Pinellas bikeway into downtown Dunedin less than 3 miles away. Next time, we'll be a bit braver and try the supplied kayaks - we're novice kayakers so did not this time, but other renters did and seemed to enjoy the experience. The boat ride with John was fun and very informative. He was a great "dolphin whisperer" and lured them out of hiding to ensure we got some great pictures. All in all, a perfect rental experience.
One of the cleanest condos I've ever rented. The owner's, John and Sheila have went above and beyond making sure you have everything you need. The unit is well stocked. They even supply toiletries and cleaning supplies for your convenience. The boat ride is a fun time. You will see other islands not accessible by car. Plus John will share some interesting town history. My teenage son was sick most of the trip and missed the boat ride. John came by the day before we left and offered to take us out again so he could go!!!! That really meant a lot. If you need something just call and they will take care of it. We are well traveled and go to a different beach each year. Dunedin stole my heart. We checked out all the surrounding beaches and none compare. It's not your typical beach vacation. Honeymoon island is beautiful. Be sure you go to dog beach there. Walk all the way to the end. You can put your chair in the Ocean about ankle deep. Sit all day and watch the kids play and boats go by. Shells galore. It's the prettiest area of the park. Also numerous beautiful parks are scattered about town. My four year old went to the park every single day and we all miss the sunset at the park each evening. Downtown dunedin is awesome. Great store owner's and great food. Be sure to stop for homemade ice cream. If you are looking for a cookie cutter beach vacation this place isn't for you. If you want to try new things and relax your evenings away dockside....then book it now! We will be seeing John and Sheila again next summer.
The villa is spotless and well stocked. They have everything you could possible need: coolers, beach towels, bikes. The beds were comfortable. My kids loved the kayaks. They were in them everyday. The boat ride is awesome. The area is just beautiful. We often saw dolphins from our dock. Saw mantees one day in the kayaks. Fished off the dock. The owners are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. We LOVED this vacation.
