Came across this little place and fell in love with it. Family (2 adults & 2 kids) spent a week here on vacation. It's great for kids with Kayaks available, a boat for hire, kids loved the free boat tour of the Island and spotting the many dolphins (and even got to pilot the boat)! Fishing gear available (again kids loved fishing from the dockside) and the location is perfect for visiting both the fast action of Busch Gardens (45 mins) and beaches of Clearwater and St Petes. Dunedin itself is a beautiful place with some lovely shops and restaurants and the best ice cream shop in the the world! The beaches on Honeymoon island are the best we have ever visited with warm water and white sand. It's the little things that John and Sheila provide you with which make the difference and nothing is a problem to them - I guess it's just one of those places you visit once and keep going back tiem and time again....Cannot recomend the place highly enough - You have to try it for yourselves!

“A little gem!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We found this apartment to be clean and well equipped with everything we needed - and more! Sheila and John live locally and are available should you need them, booking and check-in was straightforward and we particularly enjoyed the complimentary morning boat tour with John. Dunedin is a great holiday destination, the old town has numerous good restaurants, cafes and delis for all types of meals and plentiful free parking. It even has its own brewery! It is also a convenient location to visit other attractions, we visited Busch Gardens, Clearwater and Tampa Aquariums and Lowry Park Zoo (recommend the Tampa City Pass for discounted admission). We certainly hope to return!

“Wonderful getaway”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

John and Sheila are great hosts, and were very helpful with information about the area.
The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in was very clean, kitchen well stocked with utensils, beach essentials available by the side of the unit for guests, as well as kayaks by the dock which we made use of. We also made use of the free pass to Honeymoon island, but didn't get a chance to spend much time there.
View by the dock was relaxing and enjoyable, and got to see a dolphin right by the dock.
Clearwater beach was a 10 minute drive away, where we enjoyed spending time.
Highlight of the stay was the boat ride with John, where we saw dolphins in the gulf waters, and got to spend time with the family on a secluded island.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Super place for us, beautifully quiet but close to all amenities and attractive Dunedin. Extremely helpful with all questions when we arrived giving us just the info we needed. John took us on a super boat tour to a lovely tranquil beach which we all loved. Highly recommended and far nicer than staying in Clearwater! So glad we chose it
