Purchased this property after vacationing in the area most of my life.
Chris purchased this house in 2004
I waited for a waterfront home to come on the market for years in this area.
Lounging in the rear yard overlooking the water, beautiful sunsets truly makes time stand still.You'll probably not want to leave the house at all.
The waterfront access right out the back door was perfect for our vacation to the Gulf Coast. The home sits directly on St Joseph's Sound and you get to enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner ... or all three. Dolphins were seen close in along with many flying fish daily along with the boats leaving Ozona. The home was comfortable and in a perfect quiet location. A great little neighborhood tucked away on the causeway. Everything you need is supplied; you just show up and enjoy.
We took our bikes with us and enjoyed the nearby Pinellas Trail and Dunedin Causeway daily. There are countless bike trails in the area and we even treked to other areas to ride. Although we did not fish, the rods and equipment are available to cast right from the patio and you can use the kayak too.
Did we say the location was perfect? Everything is close by if you don't want to go anywhere and you can walk to it. As far as restaurants, all that we patronized had great food. Frenchy's Outpost is just around the corner; Cricketers was fun for Sunday NFL football; Bendict's for breakfast; Publix grocery store is very close by.
As far as the other places in Dunedin, we love them too and have been to many, but not all. Had great music and brews on Saturday night at the Dunedin Brewery. We picked up seafood at Jensen Brothers a couple of times and used the grill at the place to enjoy a nice meal.
Our short ride trips included a visit to the Clearwater Aquarium to visit presidential candidate Winter, the dolphin; biking in Venice and their trails; a sunset meal at Casey Key Fish House; beach days at Honeymoon Island; cold beverages on St Pete beach; and more cold beverages at Frenchy's on the beach in Clearwater; dinner in Tarpon Springs; cold beer and excellent grouper at Ukukele Brand's in Land O'Lakes.
The best part of the trip was our host, Chris. He did a great job of communicating with us (while he is in Canada). During our trip to the Gulf Coast, Hurricane Matthew churned up the Atlantic Coast and damaged our 2nd getaway in coastal Georgia and the prospects for other destinations. Chris was kind enough to work with us and allow us to stay a bit longer, so that we could enjoy this little piece of paradise.
THANK YOU, CHRIS !!!
We really enjoyed our week here. Everything was as described. We loved being able to fish right out the back door and having kayaks and bicycles available was one of the reasons we chose this condo. It was nice just to be able to throw the kayaks in the water and roam around. The Pinellas Trail is nearby for bike riding (one of the bikes was missing during our stay, though, so we didn't do as much bike riding as we would have liked). The condo was clean, well maintained, and very pretty. We liked that it was so close to Honeymoon Island and the town of Dunedin. Frenchy's Outpost is right around the corner and there are other restaurants nearby. There is a Publix nearby for grocery shopping. It was also nice to have a bait shop within walking distance. We didn't get to meet Chris while we were here, but we met a few of the neighbors and they were very friendly. John was especially friendly and gave us some fishing tips. We saw dolphins a few times right from our patio and while we were kayaking. We would definitely stay here again.
It is suitable for rest but no TVs in the bedrooms, if you are thinking to fish not recommend.
This is a great space, perfect for relaxing, close to everything, and so much wildlife we couldn't believe it. Like he says, he provides everything. We saw Manatee, Dolphins, Sea rays, Heron, Ibis, Sea hawks, Tarpon, Horseshoe crabs, Star fish, Pelicans..So much wild life right there on the bay. The condo is comfortable, the bedrooms large, the bathrooms are great, the balcony was perfect for morning coffee. Being so close to honeymoon island was a blessing as well as one of our teenagers got a serious sunburn so we weren't far away if he needed us. Great shopping in the area we found some real steals on antique jewelry. Great restaurants, The Living Room was our favorite place. And I can't forget the kayaks. Being able to kayak out to the spall islands and paddle around in the bay was one of the best parts of the trip. Thanks and we will surely stay again.
We found the home to be clean and well decorated. Everything we needed from wifi to dvd player to an espresso machine was provided. Even beach towels and fishing poles were made available. The sunsets from the back patio are spectacular. Honeymoon beach is a mere 5 minute drive and one of the most beautiful beaches found anywhere in the world. Chris was attentive and always responded in a timely manner. The home is in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle yet a convenient drive to many Tampa and Clearwater attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in this well appointed and comfortable home.
This rental home is exceptional and has everything you would need for both a short or long term stay. In addition to the amazing amenities; this property provides privacy, easy access to the community and entertainment options for the entire family. The owner was very attentive to any need or question we had and was accessible and very timely with communication during the reservation process. Additionally, the owner worked with me to meet specific requests I had based on my situation. This rental home is highly recommended over any comparable cost hotel/rental in the area! My family and I had a wonderful time!
Home is located close to Pinellas Trail. walk or bike scenic, pedestrian designated trail. Walking distance to Dunedin Beach, Caladesi Island.
Home is located off the Causeway to Dunedin Beach.
