We stayed at the Captain's Quarters and totally enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. We woke up to Dolphins almost everyday and enjoyed fishing on the dock and using the boat. Restaraunts and shopping were within walking distance and the quaint downtown of Dunedin was just a couple of miles away. Tarpon Springs and Clreawater were a few miles away. But, with Honeymoon Island state park just down the causeway from us, we had many fun things to do within walking distance.
We will definitely return to the Captain's Quarters.
We spent a wonderful and memorable week at Captains Quarters and cannot wait to return next year. This piece of paradise has everything anyone could possibly want! Janet and Alex could not be more accommodating and the condo is equipped beautifully! The boat was such a terrific addition that I don't think we'll ever be able to vacation anywhere else. We watched dolphin play each and every day in the canal and we caught flounder from the dock. Island hopping in the boat was a great adventure! The restaurants and shopping in Dunedin was awesome. Thank you, Janet and Alex, for sharing this haven with us.
This was our third visit to Florida (from Holland) in three years time and without any doubt this is our favorite spot! The boat Condo combination is perfect for anyone who loves boating, visiting unspoiled islands etc.
This combination is truly unique and knowing that renting a boat for a day cost $300 or more there is no question when we return were we will stay.
Besides the boat there is a long list of nice touches:
- Janet and Alex are so nice even my boys are talking about them ;-)
- BBQ onsite
- Balcony with nice seating
- Boat deck with seating and views with passing dolphins
- Swiming of the docks
and so much more
When we return we will be there for two weeks!
Memorial Day week was our second trip to Janet and Alex’s place. They are amazing hosts who have a way of making you feel you are at home. A home with a stunning view of the inner coastal waters of the Gulf Coast where one can sit on a private dock and watch manatees, dolphins and fish play. A home that is not only exceptionally clean but is beautifully decorated and includes amenities such as cable TV, well-appointed kitchen and did I mention the view? The photographs shown on the website are exactly spot on except so much more marvelous in person. As water lovers this was a piece of heaven. We took several easy to reach excursions on the boat that comes with the condo. We walked on white sand beaches, enjoyed the variety of natural species of the area and felt the cares of the world flow away with the tide. There is an outdoor BBQ area as well as outdoor dining tables for each condo, all facing the beautiful view. We bought fresh seafood at Jenson’s Seafood Market and enjoyed al fresco dining. If you want someone to cook for you, Frenchy’s Outpost is within walking distance, has a nice happy hour and is a fun place to mingle with locals and tourists alike. Our family has already booked a return trip for next year!
Just want to let you into a 'secret', this is PARADISE FOUND. It has everything you could wish for. A great view from the dock with sunrises, sunsets and plenty of passing wild life. You'll spot dolphins, ospreys, manatee, stingrays and a wide variety of fish. We fished from the dock, off the boat and on the beach. We had many memorable days out to three rooker bar, which is like your own private beach. We visited Honeymoon island and Caladesi state park.
The apartment was so well equipped and appointed. Beautifully clean with lovely white bedding and towels. Just bring your own beach towels. We had a washer and dryer, a god send to return home with clean clothes.
We enjoyed cooking on the BBQ out back but also walking to Frenchy's Outpost for happy hour, just down the road. Everything is so close by. Cycling down the Pinellas trail to Dunedin, which is a lovely quaint town with some great little gift shops! A handy fish shop (Jensons) and a farmers market every Friday and Saturday am. Do try Gandys up towards Tarpon Springs for great fish dip and the best Key Lime pie ever.
Alex and Janie the hosts can't do enough for you. They are the most kind and helpful people going. Ensuring you have a great holiday. We certainly keep coming back. Thanks for the sunset cruise you guys were able to fit in for the guests, it was a fun time.
We always meet many people when we are at the GVCQ and at the CQ and have some great memories and hope to continue making more. Once you've been you'll never want to go anywhere else.
Thanks Alex and Janie. We will get to go shopping together one day!
Counting down to our next visit...............
Oh Wow where to start! I am always the person the that is home sick and ready to go by our 2nd or 3rd day on vacation but my fiance had to drag me away from this place! Some of the best rest and sleep I have had in my life! We were debating another cruise and if it had been up to me it would have been another one, I am sooooo glad we choose different. The place have everything you could ask for plus some. The boat is just a added bonus and being able to not deal with the crowds and ride out and have your own personal beach/island for the day. Constantly seen dolphins, stingrays, and more fish than we could count, especially at night with the green underwater light! The place is close to everything you could ask for as far as food, shopping, and attractions. Had no complaints about anything. Absolutely cannot wait to be back there looking at that awesome view! Thanks Alex & Janet!
