Dunedin townhome description

Techs and The Powers That Be have to justify their jobs, so they are continually changing things. At present, we can't set our rate for upcoming year because they don't want us to enter cheaper rates for longer rentals. Likewise, they've instituted all sorts of new mechanisms for their phone apps. This is NOT our full-time job. We just want to share our place with other people looking to get away and be in sunshine near water. We are not the ones pestering you with emails, requesting reviews, etc. That's all vrbo/HomeAway. So, for the moment, we're trying to find out how we can set the rates the way WE want to for you. Until we can get some answers from the website, please just inquire with specific dates, but disregard whatever their auto-quote tells you. It could be more. It could be less. Our sincerest apologies while we try to sort this!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
VRBO/HomeAwayOur condo has that old-timely Florida vibe, in a perfect, tucked-away location, while being completely updated with all the amenities you could want! Water views from virtually every room! One of only 9 units that share their own pool, which is just out the back door of the garage so you can sit on your balcony in one of the comfy gliders, sip a beverage of choice, listen to the breeze in the mature palms all around, while keeping an eye on the kids in the other-wise empty pool. You could spend your whole vacation never having to get back in your car, if you don't want to. You can walk to shops, restaurants, stores and the causeway beaches, relax and unwind. OR, you can explore the many, many, many different entertainment options within the towns of Dunedin, Clearwater and Tarpon Springs, or even farther afield. Adult fun. Family fun. You name it, it's all within minutes of our condo! We keep a folder with suggestions, maps & information right in the condo for you!

Fresh, clean and bright with all new furnishings, including new beds from IKEA & 500-thread-count sheets. Off-street parking for up to three cars, including 2-car garage, with more parking available on-street. Multi-level, spacious townhome with cathedral ceiling, natural wood, all necessary full-size appliances, cookware, etc, including microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and washer and dryer! Gorgeous king-bed master suite with separate, dual-sink, full bath. Main floor bedroom has two full-sized, iron beds with own full bath. Couch is a full-sized sleeper, and there are two queen air mattresses AND a pack-n-play crib available, to allow flexibility in sleeping arrangements.

Free WiFi and cable tv. Beach/pool towels, bags, and toys. There are usually a couple bikes in the garage, adult and child, but no promises as to working conditions at any given time. :-) But, there's a bike rental shop just up the street. Likewise, there's a bait and tackle shop literally around the corner should you want to rent some fishing poles, etc. *WE* use this condo whenever we can get away, so pretty much anything you could need, we've provided, whether it be a bathroom scale, band aids, or a printer to print out your boarding passes, you name it, it's probably in our condo and there for your use!

Dunedin is a treasure!

There is so much to do and see, tons of annual events, including the second largest Mardi Gras celebration outside of NOLA, while still enjoying the feel of a small town, complete with a corner ice cream shop! Our favorite place to eat is Kelly's, live music in the Chic a Boom Room next door, and their club, Blur, has karaoke & the most fun Drag-Queen Bingo! Hysterical!

Some of the most popular activities in the region people ask about, by car:

Clearwater Marine Aquarium [home to the wonderful tail-less dolphin, Winter, of movie fame] - 20 minutes.

Lowry Park Zoo, Tampa - 35 minutes.

Legoland [including beautiful, old Cypress Gardens] - 1.5 hours.

Disney World, Universal Resort [w/Harry Potter World], Sea World - less than 2 hours.

The absolutely amazing Dali Museum in St. Petersburg - 35 min. [Even if you're not a fan; you WILL be.]

There are just about any water activities you can think of that go out of the Clearwater harbor, approx. 20 minutes south from the condo door - from dinner cruises, to kid-AND-adult-friendly pirate cruises, fishing, scientific exploration, you name it. We like to travel even further down the intercoastal to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, Indian Rocks, etc. Make sure you stop into a Crabby Bills for some fresh, wonderful Stone Crabs! Meanwhile the same distance north brings you to the cool and eclectic Tarpon Springs. Or you can just stay put, walk down to the private pool shared by only 9 units, walk 2 minutes to the quiet causeway park/beach, or cycle to absolutely stupendous Honeymoon Island State Park.

http://www.floridastateparks.org/honeymoonisland/

Maybe take the ferry to the even more amazing Caladesi Island, voted the best beach in all of America in 2008!

Brenda's is literally just around the corner, for amazing breakfasts, and the Island Outpost, just a 4 minute walk, for all other meals, PLUS live entertainment. Cocktails close at hand, but not so close as you ever hear anything at the condo! Perfect! :-) Oh, and there's a bike rental place just up the street, as well as full-sized grocery & drug stores. And Baracuda Bob's, by Brenda's, around the corner, for all the fisherman's bait and tackle needs!

Our condo is a sweet, quiet, little oasis in the midst of just about everything! The best of all worlds! You decide what kind of vacation you want, and it's right there for you.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We've been coming to Dunedin for years, thanks to Josselyn's uncle living right in town. We fell in love with it, and the whole area, and have been coming back every year for over a decade now.

Why the Owner Chose Dunedin:
When you know it's love, you commit, right? :-) We love, love, love Dunedin and we hope you will, too!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We wanted a place that was bright and cheerful but kept the feeling of 'old Florida,' if you know what we mean. Being within just a few minutes drive from all that we love, and, in particular, being so very close to one of the best state parks to be found anywhere, was just the clincher for us!
