Dunedin cottage description

Our charming 1920's spanish revival cottage is home to all that dunedin and florida have to offer.

Centrally located, you can walk one block south and experience the roar of the crowds or the crack of the bat at the dunedin stadium; home to the toronto blue jays spring training. Enjoy the smell of fresh popcorn and peanuts.

From the backyard, step out onto the renowned pinellas trail, (38 mile bike/walking trail), for a stroll into delightful downtown dunedin. Enjoy the numerous shops and local cuisine. See why, this pedestrian trail, earned dunedin the 'walking magazine's' 'best walking town in america'.

Cycle your way to honeymoon island and then ferry to caladesi island for a day of sun, shelling and sand castles. Caladesi island was named one of the top 10 beaches in America.

Need a day of boating? Launch your boat or take one of the many charter trips from the dunedin marina (2 blocks west) for a fun filled day of fishing, or an evening filled with sunsets and dolphins.

Or maybe you just need to get away and relax. Our butterfly garden offers that special place to forget your troubles. Loaded with native plants, our garden is home to many butterfly species.

So no matter where you are on life's journey, our quaint coastal cottage offers entertainment and relaxation for that special trip.

                  Sunsets, beaches and natural beauty are just a few reasons people visit dunedin, florida. It has been described as a small coastal town with the conveniences of tampa bay.

                  Dunedin's honeymoon and caladesi islands offer pristine beaches. One can cycle or drive to honeymoon island and then take a ferry to caladesi island for a relaxing day of swimming, shelling and watching wildlife. Both island's offer a snack bar and changing facilities. For a fee one can rent chairs and umbrellas. Both honeymoon and caladesi islands are favorites of the owner!

                  The renowned pinellas trail, a 38- mile haven for walkers, bikers and skaters runs through dunedin giving easy access to the downtown shops and restaurants. This friendly-pedestrian trail helped dunedin earn the walking magazine's ranking of 'best walking town in america.'

                  Dunedin is home to the toronto blue jays spring training games. During the summer, the dunedin blue jays offer baseball entertainment. Other tampa bay professional teams include the tampa bay buccaneers (football), the rays (major league baseball),the lightning(professional hockey).

                  Dunedin golf club, designed by the architect donald ross, was named to 'tampa bay's 2008 best picks. Nearby golf courses include: westchase, innssbrook, belleview biltmore and wentwoth.

                  If boating is your passion, the dunedin marina offers a convenient boat ramp for launching your boat. Don't own a boat? Charter one for your day of fishing or evening of sunsets! There are several charters located at the marina.

                  Dunedin is host to many art and special events. Downtown main street is closed throughout the year for various festivals featuring art,crafts and antiques. During mardi gras, a parade with floats and beads takes over downtown. St. Patrick's brings irish bands and food. The celtic festival features scottish bag pipes and dancing. The 9-day highland games and festival gathers athletes from miles away to participate in ancient scottish sports.

                  Tarpon springs, a greek community, is ten minutes north. One can visit sponge docks, eat greek food and shop the local stores. Want to get on the water? Take a boat ride to anclote key, a beautiful non-developed island known for its shelling.

                  Dunedin is within a easy drive of attractions and museums. Bush gardens (50 minutes), lowery park zoo (40 minutes), florida aquarium (45 minutes) a little longer drive include: disney world, universal studios and sea world about 1 hour and 45 minutes away. The world famous dali museum in st. Petersburg is a short drive.

                  Whether biking, kayaking, shelling, fishing or just relaxing, delightful dunedin offers something for everyone.
