Coastal Cottage across Caladesi & Honeymoon Islands

Coastal Cottage across Caladesi & Honeymoon Islands

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 7 Sleeps

A Hofbauer harbor home...in the midst of a nature preserve.

Our Dunedin coastal cottage is on a large corner lot surrounded by

multi-million dollar homes, old fashioned red brick roads and a

circular driveway made of shells. The home is on a very quiet,

pedestrian friendly street with very little vehicular traffic.

Throughout the park-like yard there are various sub-tropical palm

trees and native Florida birds. (The photograph above, of the Heron

bird, was taken from the front porch of the home).

A stone's throw away is a neighborhood park with awesome views of

the multi-colored sunsets, Clearwater Harbor, the Gulf of Mexico,

Caladesi Island and Honeymoon Island. Across Clearwater Harbor, as

night falls, you can see local wildlife roosting. The stunning views

will take you back in time 100 years to the days when Florida's

coastline was more populated with seagulls than people.

Yes, pelicans, sandpipers, ospreys, manatees and dolphins are part

of everyday life here!

This Dunedin home (just north of Clearwater beach) is located one

small block from the historic Pinellas trail and Hammock Park, 3

miles from Caladesi & Honeymoon islands, 1 mile from a public Golf

course, Tennis courts, and two marinas, 5 miles from Clearwater

beach and 8 miles from Tarpon Springs.

Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands (just north of Clearwater beach) are

the most exotic of the Gulf Coast beaches, containing nature

trails, more than 200 varieties of indigenous plants, sea-grass

beds, sand dunes, flocks of wading and shore birds and fish. The

unspoiled beauty of these undeveloped barrier islands offers a

glimpse of Florida the way it looked centuries ago. It's no wonder

that Caladesi Island has been nationally ranked the second best

public beach in the country (just behind a beach in Maui, Hawaii).

Three Pinellas County beaches (Caladesi Island, Fort DeSoto and Sand

Key) consistently rank among the top 20 beaches, of all the beaches

in the U.S. Additionally, Clearwater beach is ranked 5th best beach

in the U.S. Our coastal cottage is minutes from all these beaches.

Enjoy the serene, tropical coastal living our home offers, just 5

minutes away from Clearwater beach (without having to experience the

beach congestion and noise).

Email us today and start enjoying the spectacular Gulf views and

relaxing sunsets in a peaceful tropical setting.

Treat yourself! Take pleasure in experiencing the warm, gentle

breezes of the Gulf. This nature preserve awaits you...
