Our Dunedin coastal cottage is on a large corner lot surrounded by multi-million dollar homes, old fashioned red brick roads and a circular driveway made of shells. The home is on a very quiet, pedestrian friendly street with very little vehicular traffic. Throughout the park-like yard there are various sub-tropical palm
trees and native Florida birds. (The photograph of the Heron bird was taken from the front porch of the home).
A stone's throw away is a neighborhood park with awesome views of the multi-colored sunsets, Clearwater Harbor, the Gulf of Mexico, Caladesi Island and Honeymoon Island. Across Clearwater Harbor, as night falls, you can see local wildlife roosting. The stunning views will take you back in time 100 years to the days when Florida's coastline was more populated with seagulls than people. Yes, pelicans, sandpipers, ospreys, manatees and dolphins are part of everyday life here!
This Dunedin home (just north of Clearwater beach) is located one small block from the historic Pinellas trail and Hammock Park, 3 miles from Caladesi & Honeymoon Islands, 1 mile from a public Golf course, Tennis courts, and two marinas, 5 miles from Clearwater beach and 8 miles from Tarpon Springs.
Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands (just north of Clearwater beach) are the most exotic of the Gulf Coast beaches. Our coastal cottage is minutes from the top ranked beaches in the nation (Caladesi Island, Fort DeSoto and Sand Key).
Enjoy the serene, tropical coastal living our home offers, just 5 minutes away from Clearwater beach (without having to experience the beach congestion and noise).

That's us. Hope to hear from you and thank you for inquiring about our rental property. Warm regards, Tom & Maria
Maria Hofbauer purchased this house in 2006
This rental property will someday be one of our retirement homes but in the meantime it's a vacation rental.
My favorite is biking to the beach and on the Pinellas trail. Also, nature walks, antique shops and boating.
This comfortably furnished house is in the perfect location for outdoor activities. It's just blocks from the wonderful walking/biking Pinellas trail, and also a short walk to beautiful Hammock Park. If it's beach you like, it's very close to Honeymoon Beach, and only a short drive to Clearwater Beach. There's a great selection of restaurants in Dunedin, as well as other nearby areas. Molly Goodhead's is a fun place in Ozona, and very reasonable, and Frenchy's just opened on the Dunedin Causeway.
The house is very clean, with all the equipment you would need for any length stay. Considering we were here during the hot summer months, the air conditioning system was terrific!
The owners were very helpful with any questions we had about the house.
