Clearwater apartment description

Adorable and quiet the 'Hideout' sits towards the back of the property and has private patio, large bathroom and separate kitchen. Plenty of onsite parking. 4-1/2 miles to Clearwater beach and 1 miles to delightful downtown Dunedin.

The space
The hideout is very private and has a great little patio. It sleeps two but you can easily squeeze in a folding bed or air mattress.

Kitchen is nicely stocked with servingware, pots, pans, dishes & paper towels.

Guest access
Many sitting areas in the garden. Laundry room ($3 a load). I have games, dvds, some free weights, yoga mats etc that you can borrow.

Interaction with guests
Sometimes i'm around, sometimes i'm not.

The neighborhood
Your in the middle of the city but you feel like your out in the country.

Getting around
You can use the bus system for local excursions but getting to tampa by bus is not a good idea. Try the jolly trolley $4.50 for an all day pass!

Pinellas bike trail minutes away!

Other things to note
On the other side of the hideout, i keep an organic garden. I also keep chickens and have a bunny named oreo (who pretty much runs the place). Feel free to use the sitting areas in the garden and move the chairs around if needed.

Casual & fun atmosphere. Earth first---we recycle & compost.

Onsite bike rentals--$5 a day/ $25 week

Clearwater beach- awesome, city beach with all the fixings. Restraunts, bars, shopping and 3 miles of pure, white, sandy beaches. Pier 60 sunset festival 7 days a week 4-8 pm. Free movies on the beach fri & sat nights. 4.7 miles -drive, bike or take the bus.
Honeymoon island state park beach-voted top 10 beach in the country. Nature lovers will find osprey nests, a wide variety of shorebirds, and one of the few remaining virgin slash pine forests in south florida. The park boasts several nature trails and bird observation areas. Visitors can swim, fish, and snorkel in the warm waters of the gulf or picnic while they enjoy the beautiful scenery. Shelling is particularly good here, as the gulf currents deposit an incredible variety of seashells on the shore. Showers are available and the park´s concession has a gift shop and snack bar. 7.3 miles-drive, bike or take the bus.

Caladesi island-it is one of the few completely natural islands along florida´s gulf coast, caladesi´s white sand beaches were rated america's best beach in 2008. Beach lovers can enjoy swimming, sunbathing and beachcombing. Saltwater anglers can cast a line from their boats or surf fish. Nature enthusiasts can spot wildlife while hiking the three mile nature trail through the island´s interior or paddling a three mile kayak trail through the mangroves and bay. Picnic tables and shelters are located near the beach. Take the ferry from honeymoon island.
Other fun stuff-
Delightful downtown dunedin-quaint, funky, trendy vibe. (20 minute walk) pubs, cafes, shopping & local art. Have dinner at one of the restraunts (you won't find any chain restraunts here and all of them are great. Then party all night at the blur night club or have martini's at the chic-a-boom room. Wander on home then go back in the morning for the saturday morning market or kelly's amazing sunday brunch, take a walk on the trail or shop for unique art, wine, fashion or chocolates--there is always something happening here!

Pinellas trail: 25 miles of biking, blading, walking trail with plenty of neat places to stop along the way. (2 blocks away)

Dunedin brewery: the oldest microbrewery in florida. Live band thurs-fri. (20 min walk )

Blue jays stadium-ball game anyone? (15 min walk)

                          I have 6 guest houses on this property in 3 separate building. All are centered around an organic, mostly edible garden. There are lots of sitting areas and everyone has there own patio.

                          Downtown Dunedin is a must see! Tarpon Springs sponge docks is neat too. Clearwater Beach is a great city beach and Honeymoon Island is an awesome natural beach.

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About: Hi, welcome to Florida! I'm as low key and easy going as it gets. I love nature and have a big garden filled with magical things. I also enjoy kayaking, art, books, theater, crafts and of course having fun with my family and friends. My favorite vacation was a road trip out west with my camper and my dog. It lasted three months and I hiked all over Colorado, Utah and New Mexico. What scenery! Being an host has been an amazing experience. I've enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people.

                          Why Clearwater:
                          It reminds me of old time Florida.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Very private, large walk in shower, cool little patio.
