Dunedin house description
Beautiful vacation home in quiet gulf-front community at the causeway to Honeymoon Island and Caladesi State Park. Their sandy beaches, voted America's best (twice!) are a short walk or bike ride away. This recently renovated home is one block from world famous golf and the lovely walking and biking Pinellas Trail. From this wonderful home you can walk to grocery stores, restaurants, sandy beaches and beautiful sunsets. Clearwater Beach, its restaurants, and fun family activities are only ten minutes by car.
This bright and lovely Florida home offers the comforts of all new furniture and beds. The master bedroom suite has a queen bed, armoire with TV, walk-in closet and adjoining bathroom. The second bedroom has one double bed and one twin bed. The third bedroom has two twin beds. The sparkling new kitchen is open concept and is fully equipped with new appliances and kitchenware.
This area is a paradise for birders and nature lovers. Nearby Caladesi and Honeymoon Islands offer a preserve for birding, shelling, kayaking, and memorable sunsets. There is plentiful fishing and day sailing available in the secluded, friendly waters off the causeway. The quaint town of Dunedin offers shopping, antiquing, and many fine and reasonably priced restaurants. This home is equipped with beach chairs, towels, umbrella, and golf clubs.
Busch Gardens and the Ford Amphitheatre are only a little over 30 minutes away. Disney and Universal are less than two hours by car. Tampa International Airport is only a 30 minute drive. Downtown Tampa and St Petersburg are also nearby. Their museums and cultural events offer year round entertainment.
The home is located in a peaceful gulf-front community at Dunedin's beautiful causeway. It is just one street in from the gulf. Relax and unwind on the screened-in lanai and observe gulf-coast birds in the large back yard. This is truly natural Florida at its finest.

We just stayed in this home for the 2nd time. It is a beautiful home, tastefully decorated that has everything you need for a home away from home feeling. Honeymoon Island was our favorite spot to hang out in the afternoons. I highly recommend this home to everyone!

We arrived in the evening to find that the house was a home from home, we were left a bottle of wine which was lovely and a welcome note from the owner. This gorgeous home had everything we needed, from beach towels to beaches chairs, down to hair dryer and straighteners. Sheila was very helpful from the moment we booked this villa we are living in the UK so was nice to be in contact from time to time, the home made it feel like we were at home and plenty of room for my family. I cannot commend Sheila enough and her neighbour that always made us feel welcome in the area, even a few days in Sheila emailed me to ask if all was ok. I cannot commend Sheila enough for all the help, and your home was truly stunning. We will defiantly be using this home again, thank you Sheila for all your help and look forward to staying at your home again Kind regards Hellen xxxx

Change of Pace!
Change of Pace!
My family had a wonderful time in this relaxing vacation home! It was a very nice change of pace for my family's busy life. The house is located in a quite little neighborhood and sits back in a cul-de-sac so the street is nice and quiet. The bay beach is just a quick drive away (or a long walk, which wouldn't be a good idea with our small children) and had all kinds of neat sea life waiting for discovery; a part of the vacation my family loved! We found tons of different crabs and fish and even a sea urchin. Then there's the pass to Honeymoon Island that is included in the rental and let me tell you, that is the best beach we've ever been to! Dolphins even swam right in front of us, so cool. Not too crowded, very quick drive, food and bathrooms on site. It was better than Clearwater beach! Which by the way, is about a 15 min drive away and was a lot of fun too! We enjoyed watching the different types of tropical birds adorn the back yard during the day and my children enjoyed chasing many and catching one little lizard in the yard! Downtown Dunedin was just wonderful! A lot of little shops to visit including a delicious ice cream shop that was frequented by our family. Over all, perfect trip! We had three adults and two children ages 3 and 5 that stayed there and enjoyed our stay immensely!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Tradewinds Drive home in Dunedin. My husband commented several times during the week that I did a "great job" finding the house. The house is charming and comfortable. They had everything we needed, including a very well stocked kitchen and linen closet. This was our first experience with VRBO, and the ease of communication with Sheila as well as the accommodations at her home would certainly make me utilize VRBO again. I can only hope I would be as lucky making a choice in another location! Very quiet, accessible neighborhood and Dunedin is a friendly town. We would definitely return.

It was our first trip to Dunedin!!! I must say that the house was very nice!!! It was close to everything and not far from honeymoon island which was beautiful!!! The pass was a great asset to the vacation!!!! If you have a chance, take a ride to clearwater and go to Shell Key Island!! What a beautiful place!!!! For $25.00 plus tax you get the boat ride and they loan you snorkelling equipment and even an umbrella!!! The day was so relaxing and beautiful with hiking for sea shells sand dollars!!! What a beautiful home and vacation!!! We had lots of room and a nice quiet time when we needed it!!! Loved the birds in the back yard!!!! Lots of ammenities!!!!!

great family rental
great family rental
My family rented this home for a week in April to attend my daughter's wedding in Clearwater Beach. All 7 of us were very pleased with this lovely home. All the basics and then some were there; a cute, comfortable, and clean home. Stores and beaches, playgrounds and restaurants, all nearby. Nice neighbors and lovely neighborhood. My grandkids loved the big backyard and the "climbing" tree! Dunedin is a little treasure of a town. I'd rent this home again in a heartbeat.

Quiet and Comfortable
Quiet and Comfortable
We arrived on a Friday afternoon in mid May. Everything was just as Sheila had instructed. We made the beds and skipped over to the 2 minute away Publix to get groceries....then the Walgreens across the street to get booze. We made breakfast each day. They have everythng in this place including stuff in the cupboards that you can use...and replace when empty. We left 8 beer for the next renters. The place was very clean, everything worked - no issues. We would have like a BBQ to grill outside but if there was one we couldn't find it. We dined at Flanagans in Dunedin - a dump but good beer and food. We also dined at The Island Grill in Clearwater - EXCELLENT! The fishing and golf was great too. Overall, perfect.

Dunedin vacation home
Dunedin vacation home
This comfortable, well-equipped home was perfect for our family's Thanksgiving get-together. The quiet residential area is very close to Honeymoon Island and the Pinellas Trail. We were delighted to have the family pass to Honeymoon Island State Park, where we enjoyed the new nature center, walks, and sunsets. The young girls loved shelling. They also enjoyed the Leepa-Rattner Art Museum in Tarpon Springs, which has a terrific children's activity area. The restaurants in Dunedin welcome children (Casa Tina provided crayons and placemats for coloring). We also recommend a couple of newer spots: Strahan's (ice cream) and Walt's (upscale, seasonal cuisine). The owner is a pleasure to deal with. She was accessible and attentive. We definitely hope to rent the property again.

Why the Owner Chose Dunedin:
While vacationing in Clearwater, we discovered the quaint town of Dunedin. Its proximity to the gulf (Honeymoon Island), Clearwater Beach, Tampa and Orlando met all of the requirements that we wished for in a second home. When our realtor showed us this home we instantly fell in love. Its location is ideal for golf, shelling, beach, birding, biking and of course Spring Training!
