Property description

Come enjoy relaxing causeway living at A Place in the Sun in the charming gulfside community of Dunedin! It would be difficult to find a better location than Dunedin to spend your vacation. There are views of the Gulf of Mexico from our patio in front and our balcony in back. There is something to do everyday, or relax and do nothing but soak up the sun at the beach. You decide. Our home is only 2 miles from Honeymoon and Caladesi islands via a beautiful connecting causeway.

A state park pass is provided for entrance into Honeymoon Island State Park as well as all other Florida State Parks. 2 bicycles are provided.

If golfing is your sport, it is only 2 miles to the Dunedin Country Club which is open to the public. There is also a par 3 course with a driving range 1.5 miles away.

This two bedroom townhouse offers the perfect home base for activities such as deep sea fishing, dolphin watching, parasailing, biking, tennis, and kayaking. There are also nearby venues such as the Capitol Theater, Ruth Eckard Hall, the Mahaffey Theatre, the Straz Center to see live plays or concerts.

Sports fans can take in Lightning hockey games in the fall, winter, and spring. Enjoy MLB spring training games in March in both Dunedin and Clearwater, and Tampa Bay Rays games in St. Pete during spring, summer, and fall.

You can enjoy the ethnic Greek culture during a trip to the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs. You'll find a great variety of restaurants in Dunedin or nearby communities featuring ethnic foods such as Mexican, Greek, Chinese, Italian, or Japanese. Seafood is everywhere.

A short trip to Tampa will provide activities such as Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium, the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), or Lowery Park Zoo. Head south to Clearwater and see the dolphin, Winter; star of two motion pictures, at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. There are 6 restaurants within walking distance of A Place in the Sun; as well as a Publix food store and a Walgreens drug store.

If gambling is a pastime you enjoy you will only have a short drive to the hard rock casino in Tampa. Only a half mile away from A Place in the Sun you can enjoy bingo 6 nights a week. For those who prefer a day on the water while gambling there is a casino boat that sails out of Port Richey and another out of Madeira Beach. If horse racing is your thing, thoroughbred racing takes place from December through April at Tampa Bay Downs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We retired in 2002 and originally planned to live at our home on Grand Lake for most of the year and spend 3 months in Florida in the winter. But we quickly realized we wanted to spend the majority of the year in Florida and 'summer' in Michigan. So we bought 'A Place in the Sun'

Why the Owner Chose Dunedin, FL, USA:
We moved to 'A Place in the Sun' in January, 2005 because we loved its location near Honeymoon Island and the delightful community of Dunedin. Dunedin gives you the small town feeling with all the advantages of big city living in the Greater Tampa Bay area.
