Very nice house, great location.

  • 4 of 5

We were a large family in town visiting relatives in the area. The house was very spacious, and well supplied. The yard & pool area really made our stay fabulous ! The owner was available when I called with questions. The bathroom is newly renovated, and very nice. The only suggestion I would make, is maybe add another bathroom to the property. (Maybe a pool bath ?)

I would definatly reccomend this property , and will likely rent again.

good location

  • 4 of 5

Location is great for access to beach and causeway. House was in good shape overall with exception to the bathroom that need a new tub and tiles, and the outside areas need a pressure washing bad. Beds were clean and comfortable but squeaky. Internet worked well and pool was great and clean. The causeway is very close and is great for boating and jet skis. We saw dolphins and manatees while out riding. Property is great for boating and skiing as there is ample parking.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The pool is the main attraction. Neighborhood is quiet and it's great to have the Pinellas Trail behind the house. Conveniently located , close to Clearwater Beach but away from the noise. House has everything needed to cook and be comfortable. Yard is big and we enjoyed our stay without mosquitoes!! Matt responded quickly if we had a question. I can only say we would definitely stay again and again. Thank you Matthew.

Best All-Around!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Dunedin earlier in the day than anticipated--Matt was easily reached and allowed us immediate access to the home! After a long car ride with two small children and our dogs, we really appreciated such a kind gesture!! Upon going inside the house, my husband's first words were, "Woah! This is way better than the pictures!" And it truly was! The house was very clean, the fixtures and furniture were simple and homey. The sheets were soft and the beds were comfortable. All the appliances were fairly new and the washer and dryer were just as good as the ones in my own home (which again, two kids and dogs make this an important feature).

The very best part (aside from the location) was the yard and the pool/pool area!! Holy smokes!! Talk about a hidden treasure!! The yard was so big and it wrapped around the pool area to include large areas of thick lush grass and a fun wooded section complete with a little red fire hydrant! Our furry family members thoroughly enjoyed themselves! The pool area was completely enclosed and partially shaded. We ate every meal by the pool at the patio table underneath a nice fan--to say it was enjoyable would be an understatement. The pool and pool area were all very clean and functioning; we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during our time in Dunedin. This property was a real treat! We definitely plan to stay there again!

The pool is everything!

  • 4 of 5

We were mostly happy with everything. Here are the details:

Pros:

The pool! Perfect temp. Not overly chlorinated. Pump ran most of the day which circulated and cleaned the water nicely. The pool was by far the most important piece of this rental for us and made the rental worth the money.

The house was clean and I only saw one bug - an ant - on the floor the entire time I was there. No roaches is a huge plus for me.

The air conditioning adequately cooled the house (but not some rooms - see below).

Location close to several beaches was a plus.

The Draught House right around the corner has the best Cuban Sub I have ever had. Trust me on this!

Matt was quick to respond to our questions over email and understood when we accidentally took the house key with us back to South Dakota.

Cons:

No paper products like napkins, paper towels, paper plates, etc. No garbage bags. Only one beach towel. We have paid a lot less for rental vacation houses and received most of these amenities. It's the small things that matter.

Air conditioning does not adequately flow to 2 of the 3 bedrooms. So you have to really lower the temp of the entire house to get those rooms cool.

Bathroom is small and needs updating - especially the shower & tub. Looks kind of rusty and old.

The screened pool area needs a lot of TLC. Spider webs abound. Holes in the screen from trees growing through. General age issues and it needs a good cleaning.

The palm trees were constantly dropping buds into the pool making it somewhat of a constant hassle to clean up. I'm a perfectionist so I was constantly cleaning out the debris.

Not much contact from the owner, Matt. I was expecting some sort of welcome and questions if there was anything we needed. There was none of that.

The stove did not work properly - at least one of the front burners wasn't working well enough to use.

The pans are not nonstick - so prepare yourself for a good scrubbing when cooking eggs, etc.

The cons are all pretty minor compared to the pros in my opinion. I'm not sure I would drop another $1300+ for this house. I will have to think about it.

Great location, very nice house

  • 4 of 5

The photos don't do this house justice, it was actually much nicer than the dark photos show! We were very pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to the vacation rental to see a very clean and nicely decorated home--and it was bigger than we thought!

Pros

Right on Pinellas Trail so great for walking, running, biking or strolling after dinner

Within 10 minutes of Dunedin's historic center which is adorable

Within 15 minute drive to Clearwater so you don't sit in beach traffic

Within 40 minutes of the aquarium and other fun downtown Tampa activities

Plenty of towels and linens and a fully stocked kitchen

All tile floor so no worries about sand clean up

Good size TV with a Blue Ray DVD player

Beautiful pool (though unheated so we didn't get to use it)

Price can't be beat for the size!

Cons

The beds are SUPER creaky so any motion on them woke the other person up

Walking to Dunedin is really not possible on the trail unless you're youngish without children

Bathtub and tiles need replacing--rusted and dingy looking

It got very very hot at night inside the bedrooms so I'm not sure but the a/c might not be the best inside those rooms

Although Matt was easy to text once we were there we did have a hard time getting ahold of him beforehand. Sometimes it would take a week+ to get an answer to a question (like who to contact in case of an emergency with the house since he doesn't live nearby).

We really enjoyed our stay here and it would work just fine for anyone on a budget with or without kids.
