Dunedin vacation rentals

Old world charm and a relaxed lifestyle in Dunedin

Dunedin is one of the oldest towns in Florida. Originally founded by Scottish settlers in the mid 1800s, it retains its Scottish roots to this day. With a charming downtown area, 4 miles of picturesque waterfront and a great choice of vacation rentals, Dunedin is the perfect place or a relaxing family-friendly vacation. There is also a thriving cultural and sports scene, with museums, galleries, and major league baseball of offer. It’s also close to Honeymoon Island State Park and Caladesi Island, both of which remain in their natural states, untouched by development.

You’ll feel immediately at home in Dunedin

The home-style feel is the boast of this quaint Florida city, and with the superb selection of Dunedin vacation rentals, you most certainly will feel at home. Many will head for the unspoiled beaches and nature of Honeymoon Island State Park with its emerald waters and miles of nature trails. The island is the perfect base for a great day out at the family-friendly beaches, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, or paddleboading in the warm, clear waters of the Gulf. Culture vultures may want to visit the Dunedin Fine Art Center, which also offers art experiences for kids.

Nature, culture, and sport are all on hand in Dunedin

Dunedin has not 1, but 2 state parks. In addition to the delights of Honeymoon Island, the white sandy beaches of Caladesi Island State Park are one of America’s best beaches. Here, in addition to swimming, sunbathing, or beachcombing, anglers can cast a line either from the shore or from a boat, and adventurers can explore the mangroves by kayak. After a sunny day out, head back to the Dunedin vacation rentals and the delights of charming Downtown Dunedin will be waiting, with restaurants to suit every taste and pocket, and exciting cultural events throughout the summer.

A comfortable climate all year round in Dunedin

Dunedin has a humid subtropical climate. It has hot and humid summers, when temperatures can reach the 90°F, but also a high likelihood of thundershowers. Luckily, there is plenty to do indoors to shelter from the rain if visiting Dunedin in the summer months. As fall approaches, summer moves into hurricane season, so be sure to look ahead before traveling. Winters are generally dry and mild with temperatures around the low to mid 20s. Many might find winter the most comfortable time to visit.

Dunedin is home to two state parks

One of the most striking aspects of Dunedin is the absence of high-rise developments along the waterfront. Corporate franchises and chains are also largely absent from Downtown Dunedin and its other commercial districts. This is a deliberate policy that helps town retain its old-world charm and feel, and makes it a popular destination for a relaxing, family-friendly vacation. Honeymoon Island and Caladesi State Parks are havens for beach and nature lovers alike. Honeymoon Island in particular is a birdwatchers’ paradise, so be sure to dust off those old binoculars.
