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.
A stone's throw away is a neighborhood park with awesome views of
the multi-colored sunsets, Clearwater Harbor, the Gulf of Mexico,
Caladesi and Honeymoon Islands. 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
This Dunedin home (just minutes north of St.Petersburg/Clearwater
beaches) 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.
The 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. for cleanliness, wildlife, sand softness, water
temperature, public safety and color and composition of the surf and
sand. Caladesi Island is nationally ranked the second best public
beach in the U.S. (just behind a beach in Maui, Hawaii).
