Dunedin villa description

Unique sought after location in delightful Downtown Dunedin's historic main street. Secluded heated private pool. 10 mins drive from miles of flat golden sand at Clearwater Beach & unspoilt sub-tropical Honeymoon & Caledisi Islands. 45mins from Tampa's Busch Gardens, Adventure Island water park & Aquarium. 90 mins from Orlando's attractions & Disneyworld. Superb selection of restaurants & bars within walking, including gourmet, smokehouse, Mexican/vegetarian, Italian eating, a fun Irish bar and waterfront bistros with spectacular sunsets and more! Lovely antique & craft shops, boutiques & galleries within walking and a variety of national stores within a short drive. 37 miles of safe flat leisure trail alongside our home for walking, jogging, cycling (cycles available) and roller booting/blading.
Meet the locals at the nearby baseball and football stadiums and see Florida and Floridians as they really are. Visit 'Winter' the dolphin - star of the movie Dolphin Tale at Clearwater and local flea markets. Nearby toddlers’ playground and free splash-ground. Two 18-hole golf courses nearby plus 30 courses locally. Boating, pier & deep sea fishing, jet skiing, parascending, kayaking, dolphin encounters, manatee spotting and alligator encounters.
Our guests often start by choosing the Gulf Coast as a haven of peace and tranquillity following a hectic time in Orlando but find they love Dunedin so much they choose is as their base next time - and dip into the theme parks for a few days, especially as Busch Gardens, Adventure Island Water Park and Tampa aquarium are only 45 mins away.
Our home is quiet and peaceful but not isolated - step outside and you meet the friendly locals but inside privacy is ensured with our completely secluded garden and caged heated private pool. Our large sitting room/dining area with cable TV, internet connection, DVD and CD player opens onto the pool area with sun-beds, dining area and barbecue via two sets of patio doors enabling a view of any children playing in the pool - which ours do non-stop - even after a day in Orlando or on the beaches. If that's not enough - take little ones to the playground near the marina or the local splash-ground and give the older ones barbecue bones on string to catch crabs from the pier or a cycle ride along the safe and flat Pinellas Trail just outside our home!

Whilst our home is suitable for the elderly, especially bearing in mind the nearby shops and restaurants, it is not suitable for the infirm as the bedrooms are upstairs. There are a number of cycles available for the nearby Pinellas Trail in various sizes and condition! Please bear in mind that gas for the barbecue is not replaced but the replacement cylinders are available at Lowes DIY stores and the local garage - it is also likely that gas will be left over from previous guests. An additional fridge in the garage facilitates vital extra cool drinks storage. Fans in the sitting room and bedrooms aid the air conditioning. Local phone calls are free.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Unique location in real Florida - our villa is located in historic Downtown Dunedin - not on a huge housing development where a car is necessary every time you step outside - our neighbours are local Floridians. We walk to the waterside with its lovely marina, to the old railway track which is now the Pinellas Leisure Trail and offers walking, jogging and roller booting, to a great variety of restaurants/bars, shops/boutiques and the local baseball stadium to share a pizza and pint with the locals. In addition, we are only 10/15 minutes drive from miles of flat golden sand, restaurants and facilities at Clearwater Beach or unspoilt sub-tropical Honeymoon Island and Caledisi Island which is a short ferry hop away. 45 mins takes you to Tampa with Busch Gardens and Adventure Island water park, the Aquarium and great kayaking on the Hillsborough River - Orlando is 90 min away. Even more - a new splash ground - a smaller version of those at the the theme parks for young children - has just opened less than 10 mins away and it's free. This compliments the playground we have just a couple of mins from home near the marina. Also, 'Winter' the dolphin, star of the movie 'Winters Tale' is resident at the marine animal hospital at Clearwater where some of the scenes from the movie were filmed.
