About Kay

In 1991 I was going through a rough time and looking to rent a place that provided serenity and tranquility. I read an ad in the newspaper titled 'VACATION YEAR ROUND' And I rented a place on the water just 4 doors away from the property I now own.

Kay purchased this townhome in 1994

Why Kay chose Clearwater Area

After Renting down the street I JUMPED on the chance to own in this wonderful location. While walking one day, the seller was putting a sign in the window and that was it for me!

What makes this townhome unique

This home is warm and wonderful and hugs me every time I enter. While providing solitude and a slice of heaven it is just steps from everything!

Awesome spot right on top of the water. An "Oh Wow!" experience.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised at the closeness to the water that this home gave us. It was literally a dozen feet from the back door.

Each evening while relaxing out back we were blessed with a fabulous sunset to the west. While outside in the early morning drinking my coffee and having some toast we enjoyed the sunrise off to the right side (East). Home included all amenities necessary to be comfortable and self sufficient. We will definitely consider staying at Kay's place again should we go back to Dunedin and it's a good bet that we will.

Very peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The accommodations were very cute and comfortable. Enjoyed the antique furniture. There were a few cons, the most important was the musty smell in the house. I'm allergic to mold and mildew. I have found in our home if I use the 3M air filter for allergies that it helps stremenouly. Also an air purifier would help. I can see where previous people had issues with the screen door, but it's workable. A fan on the back porch would be nice. Just to make you aware the porch flooded when it rained, may want to check the gutters. It also would have been nice to have a blow dryer for my hair.

Now for the pros, you can just feel the stress go away when you sit on the back porch or the balcony off the bedroom. Listening to the water, watching the Dolphins play and the boats go by, was delightful. It was in a nice location. Close to downtown Dunedin and Honeymoon Island. Having the pass available for the island was a nice touch. Publix grocery store was close by. Just a cute little place to get away for a few days.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. It is unfortunate that right before your arrival Pinellas County was hit with an unusual amount of rainfall (22 in.) This is an unusual occurrence. Thanks for your suggestions. I have put an air purifier and special air filter in the property. Have a blessed day!

A little piece of heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have dreamed up a better place than this townhome! Beautiful and relaxing views, tons if sunshine, perfect for fishing (you will catch tons of fish) and close to the beach, and such a charming place! My family all agree that this is our favorite vacation spot out if all the places we have been over the years! And to top things off, Kay was so wonderful and one of the nicest people we have ever met! Even the neighbors we wonderful and friendly. I can't find the words to truly describe just how womderful our stay was! Don't miss the chance to enjoy a stay at Serenity by the Sea!!!

Great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was perfect for us. It was very clean and homey. Having 5 people staying here was easier than expected. Views are amazing and the location is very convenient for restaurants, shopping and most importantly the beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent alternative to vacationing at a hotel

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had the pleasure of calling Serenity by the Sea home for three days, four nights in late July. Hands down, the townhouse made our trip much more enjoyable than the anonymity of a hotel. Adequately equipped, the kitchen allowed us the freedom to chose between eating out or cooking for ourselves and the patio proved a thoroughly wonderful place to eat with the company and entertainment provided by the birds and occasional dolphin that frequent St. Joseph's Sound. Sunrise and sunset alike were beautiful, especially when viewed from the upstairs balcony. We also enjoyed being able to relax in the comfortable living room after spending the day exploring the Pinellas Trail on bikes we rented nearby, the sponge docks in nearby Tarpon Springs and the beaches of Honeymoon Island. We would definitely return should our vacation plans see us again in the Dunedin area and would recommend Serenity by the Sea to friends likewise visiting the area.
