Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Ms. Vogel! My friend and I enjoyed our stay at The Hummingbirds very much! It was a wonderful vacation and a great place to stay.







I was writing to inquire about when the deposit will be returned. It may have already been mailed, but I just wanted to check on it.







Thank you for sharing your home!

We are an English family who chose this part of Florida,over all the rest that we traveled to over the years.

To live and work here is like being on vacation all year!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

We fell in love with this area in the 80's. It is so perfect for everybody in the family to enjoy, having something for all age groups.

The beaches are the best you can get, the number one voted beach in the whole of the USA in Caladesi island is just 5 minutes drive away.

It is truly paradise here.

You can also walk to restaurants,cafes, shops etc, which is quite rare in Florida. The Jolly Trolly stops close by which takes you south to Clearwater and Dunedin and north to Tarpon Springs

We started to look for a vacation home along the Gulf coast nearly 20 years ago and had very tough search criteria.

We wanted the perfect location to suit every bodies needs, plus a lot more.

Not just for families or couples, but for everybody wanting that perfect vacation.

In finding this beautiful quaint little town, we found it.

After 20 years and buying another 3 homes, all within walking distance of each other.

We never thought about buying else where, we had found the perfect location.

The area is friendly, safe to walk at night and central to everything

AWESOME HOME AND AREA

  • 5 of 5
I don't normally do reviews, but my daughter just pointed out the last review to me and I felt compelled to now do one for the first time. What a load of dribble they wrote ! This is a really nice home that I would love as my own, nothing cheap there at all. The owners actually look as if they have put a lot of thought into how it is decorated and presented. For a rental home I think it goes way way past basic. The Air was set, but comfortable and went down at night when it is really needed. As a home owner myself I can see why this has to be done and why.We had 2 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom which I don't think we used all of it. If we did I would not have expected the owners to supply me with more or any other stuff. We had a great time at the house and the pool was so warm its was awesome, could not get my kids out even when food was ready !
It was 5 minutes drive to Honeymoon island which was the best place ever.The house is in a small cul-de-sac and I felt it safe for my girls to play outside and it was also only a 10 minute walk to the Downtown restaurants which we walked to even when it was dark.Okay the pool is not huge, but this is a 2 bedroom home that does not cater for large groups, so it worked well for us 5. In all great home, great area and the owners are really accommodating, they e mailed me a couple of things that were going on in the area whist we were there. Book and enjoy

VERY BASIC/CHEAP -- NOT A WARM FEELING

  • 2 of 5
Pros:
- house was reasonably clean
- not super close to the beach, but not terribly far either

Cons:
- cheap/basic décor
- Upon arrival, we found the thermostat under lock and key, making us feel like juveniles not to be trusted
- lack of basic essentials (no more than one roll of toilet paper per bathroom and one roll of paper towels) meant we had to run out to the store to buy these inexpensive essentials
- pool is very tiny

Owner's Response: After 37 Great reviews, we have the person nobody can please. Our home is exactly as seen on line, and has never been called basic before ! Our Air/heat is set by our energy provider and is comfortable for most people. When this person complained about it, we actually took the cover off for him ( he did not say that ) It was only in the mid 70's, so not even hot outside yet. We supplied 2 rolls of paper in each bathroom which he did not use, so why complain again.
He also forgot to inform us of the red juice spillage that he left on the sofa, of which he did not get charged for the extra cleaning

STUNNING WE LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
We have spent wonderful two weeks in the Bay Area and The Hummingbirds.
The House met our expectations and suited well to our family. The area is nice and more peaceful than areas closer to Tampa and St Pete. Especially route to Tampa is easy.
We recommend.

GREAT HOME CLOSE TO BLUE JAYS

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time at your home. Place was exactly what we needed for a few days away from home and to spend time with our son who is down in Dunedin with the Blue Jays playing.

I will keep you all in mind for the next time we are back watching some more baseball.

Everything went very smoothly.

FANTASTIC PLACE

  • 5 of 5
I meant to drop you and Gaye a note to thank you for the wine and the use of your the house, but after a week away from work, I'm still catching up. So now that I have a moment, Thank you! We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the area immensely. We chartered a fishing boat in Dunedin with Oakley Charters with Captain Ray and had a great time. I left some of Captains Rays cards in your book for future renters. By the way, the book was a huge help for first time vacationers. We will be back next year. I'm not sure if I told you, but this trip was planned around my mothers wish to go to the Philadelphia Phillies Spring Training for her 80th birthday. A week before we were to leave, she fell and broke her shoulder and could not make this trip. My partner Deb and I made the trip without her. We will probably try again next year and will stay in the Palm Harbor area in one of your properties. I have also decided that when the time comes to retire, Palm Harbor or Dunedin is where we are going. So thank you again for the use of your wonderful home..
