The views from the room are quite enjoyable. Though you are not right on the ocean, you can get a good look from the kitchen dining area. We had the great pleasure of seeing Dolphins on at least 4 different occasions. They swim right your balcony.
Most of the restaurants and shopping are nearby. We enjoyed Dockside Dave's, Bubba Gump's, and Friendly Tavern on
Thursday for all you can eat Snowcrab. All Chian restaurants are within 3 to 10 miles.
The beach is very nice. (wish the weather had been more cooperative). Must see is Caladesi Island. A little bit of a drive to get there, but WELL WORTH it. Dunedin on the way to Honeymoon Beach looked like an interesting place. Wish we had explored that. The beach at Clearwater has beautiful sand and lots to do. We enjoyed Pass a Grill Beach and the residential area is very nice. There is a nice restaurant in Pass a Grill but I can't remember the name. St. Pete Pier is worth the drive. You can walk All day on the beach if you like. It seems to go on forever.
This is a really nice property to stay in and a very nice to visit. Again wish the weather had been warmer and you have to PAY TO PARK EVERYWHERE.!!!
We would highly recommend this property and you won't find a more easy-going cooperative person than Bill.
