Great week in Dunedin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are just leaving from a week-long stay at Bill and Linda's home and everything was wonderful. Even with the weather being unseasonably cold, we found so much to do. On the couple of good days we had, we explored Honeymoon Island (and the nature trail), Caladesi Island and Clearwater beach. All are highly recommended. We enjoyed Dunedin's Fine Art Center and several terrific restaurants - check out Clear Sky Draught House for dinner and Kelly's for breakfast (but stop back later for the best key lime pie EVER). Go to Bon Appetit but get there early enough for the sunset. Also drive to Safety Harbor for shops and more.

The house was the perfect home base for us. We used the kitchen for several meals, and the bed was very, very comfortable. Everything we needed was available, and I appreciated Linda's call during our stay just to make sure everything was going well.

Wonderful week!

The Swans

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and the beds were so comfortable. We enjoyed the bikes and the state park pass. We hope to move to Dunedin in a couple of years and get a house just like yours. We were very pleased.

Great location in Dunedin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home. Downtown Dunedin is within walking distance. Recommend you try the Pinellas Trail for walking and biking. Many thanks to Linda and Bill for providing a season pass to Honeymoon Island. We plan to visit again next year.

Awesome Vavation

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we hoped it would be. It was beautifully decorated , clean and had everything we needed. We loved being close to town and the trail. The owners were a pleasure to work with. Not only would I stay here again but I would recommend it.

Dirty, smelly house, not as described

  • 1 of 5

On arrival at the house we were extremely upset to find that it was in a very dirty condition, it smelt strongly of dogs and poor house keeping. We were so upset to find that bedding had been put on the beds wet and our double bed had a top sheet stained with blood. The house was absolutely disgusting with lots of dust, very dirty skirting boards, every surface was dirty, the fridge and micro wave had not been cleaned from the previous occupants. There was no evidence of a professional clean prior to our stay even though I had been assured that the house was professionally cleaned between each occupant. Given the level of dirt it is very obvious that the house had not been cleaned for a long time. The attitude of the owner was very poor and despite a full refund promised we have not received anything. We only stayed 24 hours in the end as it was so filthy, we all had flea bites, I can't believe the owner is still renting this out ! i hope no one else has their holiday ruined by staying here. I have photos to prove how bad this house is.

Owner's Response: I was very disappointed to read this review, for the last 8 years we have had stellar reviews. But alas there is always some one out there, for unknown reasons look and try to cause such trouble. It is not to say that some of there comments, were not justified. We did have a different cleaning lady that day. And yes she did not do the cleaning job that we expect. I tried to explain to the guests, and offered to have the regular girl to clean the house, as soon as she returned from vacation, in two days. They chose to move on. I have given them a full refund. I have in the future remedied the cleaning issue. We have hired a cleaning company to come in. It is our goal to make your vacation one to remember in a pleasant way. . Please read all the other reviews this year!!! Linda

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this home and enjoyed the wonderful town of Dunedin. The location was great we walk everywhere. The shops were so much fun. The people so friendly. They showed the love of Animals having treats and water almost at every establishment. Every Friday and Saturday a wonderful produce market takes place. Linda was great and provided us with all we need. Location great for touring the area for more sightseeing fun.

Car: recommended

What a great find in the historic district, brick streets, large southern oaks that shade you on a hot day. Walk down at night to a wonderful dinner at the many upscale resturants or just a simple ice cream. Take a walk to the marina and watch the sun set with your favroit beverage. Take our bikes [4] and get on the 39 miles of bike trails. Or grab our coolers and chairs and kids toys and head out to the beach. We supply you a season pass to honey moon Island just a 8 minute car trip over the causway. Our home is just like yours. Has everything you may need, Great beds, clean and sunny and a back yard to unwind in after a day at the beach. Landscaped to make you feel that you are in the tropics. Come and visit...... You'll want to come back... Bill and Linda.
