Great stay for relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Stayed with my mom and son. The water was very shallow here so we did not use the boat. The view is gorgeous and my mom loved relaxing every day. I loved the close proximity to the causeway where you can walk by the ocean. We came for my mom to relax. My son took in some Tampa Ray games. Very comfortable furniture and no stairs for mom to climb! Would love to return sometime when my husband can come as he loves to fish.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us. It is a great place to relax. Would love for you to come back with your husband so you will be able to use the boat. The islands are great for a long walk or just relaxing in a chair with a good book! Hope to see you again in the future. Thanks Alex and Janet

I wish I could keep this little place a secret but, it's obvious that it was discovered years before I had the chance. My husband and our two young daughters visited for the first time in May, 2016. As soon as we arrived, I was blown away with the unit and decor. It was adorable and oh so comfy. Best of all, the accessibility to stores, downtown Dunedin, bike trails, beaches and restaurants was devine. Having the use of the boat was the icing on the cake. We spent our days on the boat visiting all of the beautiful Beaches and islands. The dock was another favorite spot. We started every day with a cup of coffee on the dock and finished our day every evening on the dock watching the sunsets, viewing the array of sea life and talking to some locals, repeat visitors as well as Captain Alex and Janet. The last morning of our stay, my oldest daughter walked out onto the dock with me and cried because she didn't want to leave. Captain Alex and Janet are awesome and make you feel like you are part of the family. We cannot wait to return and hope to visit regularly from now on and for many years to come.

Perfect Place For a Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the CQ for one week in March and everything we hoped for came true. All we read about the owners, Janet and Alex, was also true. They were very accessible and yet non-intrusive. The setting was perfect, the condo was equipped with all we needed to enjoy the week and the back patio offered the perfect place to relax and take in beautiful sunrises and sunsets while watching Ospreys, Dolphins, Schools of fish and so much more. The boat dock is set up with six relaxing Adirondack chairs that provided a commanding view of the entire bay all the way to Honeymoon Island. This vacation rental made our stay in beautiful Dunedin perfect.

"This Dunedin condo was an excellent choice"

  • 5 of 5

Above quote from husband as we pulled away from Captain's Quarters condo early last weekend. If you haven't been to Dunedin, give it a try. We checked out West Central Florida towns from Tarpon Springs to Siesta Key and Dunedin is our favorite coastal get away. There's so much to do if you enjoy cycling, walking, parks, boating, shopping, dining, quaint downtown areas and beaches. Our favorite places to eat: Flanagan's Pub (Dunedin), Sea Sea Riders (Dunedin), Rusty Belly (Tarpon Springs) and the old Crabby Bills (Indian Rocks/Shores), Casa Tina's (Dunedin) and Strachan's Homemade Ice Cream, where I ordered key lime pie. Dunedin is slightly removed from busy Clearwater which satisfied our desire to relax in the sunshine, enjoy a quaint town and have some good, family conversations. We enjoyed being on the waterfront and taking the boat out to Caladesi Island and around the sound. Husband also enjoyed throwing his line off the pier and spotting dolphins and manatees. It's a 4 mile round-trip bike ride to Honeymoon Island beach (loved it) and we did this twice, plus cycled to downtown and enjoyed Pinellas Trail. Janet and Alex were most cordial and helpful. They offer a well-furnished, comfortable, roomy condo with a lovely view of the waterfront on the covered deck. There's also a covered deck at the end of the dock. Grocery store, gas station, restaurants, shops (and Honeymoon Island beach) are within walking distance. Half the time we left our vehicle parked. People at work are telling me how relaxed I look, so that says a lot about our trip. Thanks again, Janet and Alex, for helping to make our vacation a most enjoyable retreat.

Owner's Response: Your husband is right! Dunedin is a wonderful little town. You can be as busy as you want or just sit back and relax on one of the many beautiful islands. That is what we love to do! Next time you are here try the carrot cake from Strachan's, it's delicious! Hope to see you again next year! Janet and Alex

BOOK THIS!!!! No need to look any further!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a week here (next year we hope to stay for 2 weeks). What a beautiful place and wonderful people!! The unit is very nice and has all of the amenities you need and more. It is beautifully decorated, very comfortable, modern & clean...a wonderful place to come back to each day from being on the water all day. The islands are just a boat trip away and some of the best you will visit. Dunedin is a beautiful town and has some great restaurants and shops. Groceries are a skip down the road. If you are at all hesitant of the owners being in the same building - DON'T be....they are a welcome addition to an already perfect place and are there any time you need anything.
