Wish we could stay longer
Overall, this is an incredibly comfortable home. Kitchen is well stocked w utensils, stoneware dishes, lots of bowls of many sizes, plenty of pots and pans, and even had a salad spinner and a teapot.
Living room has three recliners, which got lots of use. Good sized flat screen TV w cable service. Never had a problem with the wifi. There are also two couches.
There is wonderful room between dining area and screen room w a game table and a whole set of comfortable chairs plus a desk.
Then there is the pool, which was wonderful. Sometimes the water was a bit chilly but we were in it almost every day. You will want to clean out some of the leaves each day, but otherwise, someone appears and takes care of the pool whether or not you are there.
At the end of the day, the king size bed encouraged dreams and relaxation. Very comfortable.
We didn't use the room w the twin beds but it's a nice looking room.
Water pressure in the shower was very good and the laundry room was important, especially as we used pool towels and beach towels almost everyday.
The grill is pretty old but it did it's job and we did use it many times. The back yard has lounge chairs and the screen rooms are both wonderful places for relaxing, eating (in the back) and reading. The yard is so incredibly private thanks to all the trees and plants, despite the closeness of neighbors. We didn't have any issue w neighbors and rarely heard them.
It's about smile walk to the town, with options for restaurants, bars and breweries along the way.
The Pinellas Trail is one of our favorite things about this area and started recognizing others during our daily walks or bike rides.
I hope we get to stay here again. This is a home, so liveable, not a sterile cookie cutter condo. We really don't want to leave.
Had a great time. Family friendly and close to everything
2019 Florida vacation!
The property was above our expectations! All of the comforts of home like having the little things you don’t think about.... spices if you need them. Tooth picks, games or a nice library for a rainy day! Owners were super nice and accommodating!!! Give this rental experience a 10 ⭐️!!! Would recommend this!!!
Such a wonderful home!
The neighborhood was nice, quiet and we felt very safe being away from home. My girls loved the pool and the gardens❤️ Close to Clearwater, but not in the hustle of the city. We visited Honeymoon Isalnd and the beaches, it was so nice to be so close! Owners were excellent and we will definitely be back! #hiddengem #ilovedunedin #cantwaittovisitagain❤️
Definitely not worth the price for March!
The house was nice but know that the main TV is old and has blown speakers so you cant hear it at a louder volume. The TV (monitor) in the master is only about 20in. There is no other TVs in house. We actually went and bought one and brought it home with us. The deck was a mess of screws and nails coming up along with some loose boards. A friend sliced the bottom of her foot open on one after getting out the pool and I tore my heel on one at the edge of the stair. Owner states that he has a pool company that will come twice a week which we assumed was to take care of the pool leaving us to think that a team would come and clean this is not the case. One man comes and dumps chemicals and leaves and the second day an elderly (very nice) lady comes to vacuum and clean pool which made me feel very uncomfortable so we just took care of everything ourselves and just left her to run vacuum because it was not left at house. My husband and I went and bought new nets and pins for equipment and spend about an hour or more a day cleaning the pool. We had this house for the entire month of March and the leaves we awful there would be a layer every morning and there was no cover so every morning this had to be done and several times during day. The back neighbor spends his nights drinking and singing and listening to loud music until about 4am. The houses across the street and next door were under construction so that was not so nice. They offered 3 bikes to use all of which had flat tires. The house was clean and did provide everything you needed and did have new appliances but we definitely felt it was way overpriced. The area is nice and we definitely will be back just not to this house. I also contacted the owner on several occasions to try to discuss these issues before I left a review but he never responded.
Much of what is written here is half-truths. We pride ourselves in responding to every concern that is expressed to us about the house, everything brought to our attention is immediately taken care of. The only time this renter contacted us was when she missed 2 garbage pick ups over two weeks, because she did not put the garbage out on time. When I suggested she wait until the next pick-up, she said she couldn't because the container (a very large container) was full of beer bottles (her words). We arranged for a special pick up that afternoon, for which we were charged, and we did not pass that cost on to the renters. So the renter had the experience of knowing that we promptly take care of any concern that is brought to our attention. Renter also volunteered to me that she & her co-renter were familiar with swimming pools and were glad to skim the pool daily, she did not offer any complaint about the pool. Also there was no complaint about the TV nor the deck. The renters who followed her contacted me about the screws on the deck and again, our property manager Mark came the same afternoon and repaired the raised screws. We cannot repair what we are not aware of. When this renter wrote to me recently (long after her rental), we immediately had the TV replaced and hired a new pool manager. We could have done that any time if she had just let us know. This renter also stayed one day longer in the house than she paid for; our cleaning company came to clean but the renter was still there, and the cleaning company had to return the next day. We had to pay the cleaning company extra for coming twice and we did not pass that cost on to the renters either. I'm sorry we didn't. If we hear of any problem with the house, it is taken care of IMMEDIATELY, as soon as it is reported. I think this renter is upset because she paid the premium price for the house which we charge for the winter months. This is known as "supply & demand." Thank you.
Great location and house
Well-equipped, well-maintained and comfortable house in a great location. Quiet neighbourhood, walking distance to Pinellas Trail, Hammock Park, "downtown" Dunedin, and an easy drive to Honeymoon Beach State Park, Clearwater and St.Petersburg. On rainy days we enjoyed sitting out in the screened-in porch (lanai) reading books from the selection available in the house. Paul was very kind and helpful, especially when we had a health scare at the end of our stay. Thanks Paul. Hope to be back next winter.
The Trail: Walk to the famous Pinellas Trail - a 47 mile walking,
biking and rollerblading trail. If you're an early riser, walk the
Trail to artsy Downtown Dunedin and have a delicious breakfast at
Kelly's, followed by some window shopping in the many interesting
shops. Or rent a bike and go to the beach!
The Hammock: A 75 acre 'Old Florida' nature preserve. Incredible
birding just blocks away.
The Gulf: Enjoy the sunsets at the park along the Gulf overlooking
beautiful Caledesi & Honeymoon Islands, which boast kayak trails,
stunning beaches, and nature trails. In January, ospreys begin
Disney is less than 2 hours away. And Dunedin is the Spring Training
home of the Toronto Blue Jays, with Yankees & Phillies close by.
