Spent 10 days here visiting friends in Dunedin. The apartment is exactly as described. Very comfortable, quiet area, great location. Might be snug for 4 adults but for the two of us was perfect. Enough room to entertain. It is right on the canal. Might not be the right place for the very young. Kayaks, bikes, beach stuff all available. Pass for Honeymoon State Park is available. We'll be back.

You never know what to expect when you rent sight unseen.... However with this Condo everything was perfect. It was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities we needed for a week stay. The owner met us on arrival and I have to say she was a lovely lady.... We met the other guest on the dock. One couple wasfrom New Jersey and the other family was fron New York... We had some great conversations while watching the dolphins swim up and down the channel. The Condo is so close to restaurant's and Honey Island is just down the road if you want a great beach. Definitely going to be booking here again. From Ontario Canada

It has been a week since we stayed and I purposely waited to write a review so that I could give my most thoughtful response. My family and I were impressed from the moment we drove up. The grounds are stunning and surpassed only by the warm welcome we received from the proprietor. We were blown away by how meticulously the condo had been designed and accommodated everything needed to enjoy the area. This included not only the location on the canal just minutes to the Gulf (you can walk to the Gulf) the boat ramp, shopping, bike trails, beaches complete with a beautiful patio area and dock; but also, everything to enjoy the surrounding area. The condo has a kayak, bikes, beach chairs, two grills and for indoor entertainment has wifi, two televisions with Netflix included. We like to cook so having a full kitchen with all the amenities was welcomed. Laundry room including detergent was a plus as my family worked out on the patio, fished, beached and biked throughout the week. The interior is particlarly beautiful throughout. The beds are so comfortable - the best sleep I have had in years. Everything is very tastefully done! Bring the family, the boat and your favorite recipes and embrace this wonderful vacation destination. My family will return for many years to come.

Dear Sharon, Thank you for taking so good care of us during our stay in your beautiful appartment! We enjoyed every minute. You are such a warm person and made us feel really comfortable. We saw dolphins from the patio and they followed us home when we went by kajak to Caladesi island. A very nice trip! Indian shores was another beautiful place. Clearwater beach we found too crowded. There are good restaurants in Dunedin and big supermarkets just nearby. We highly recommend this place! Charlotta with family from Stockholm, Sweden

We stayed for the 4th of July with our family. The rooms are decorated beautifully and very clean. They have given you everything you could ever need in the kitchen and living space down to spices! We were able to grill out, ride bikes over the causeway, and take my mother in law on her first ever kayak ride! The owner is amazing and always there to help out or provide you with anything including a smile. We love coming to stay here and intend to do so for many years to come!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We had a great time with you and your family watching the fireworks from the dock, the two big orange umbrellas came in handy, rain and shine!! July 4th is my favorite time on the island...from fireworks on the dock, festivities in Dunedin and Ozona, antique shopping, and the annual 5K and 10K run to the end of the island and back! Looking forward to seeing you guys again next year!

From start to finish this was a great place to stay. Wonderful décor, frigid air con for humid Florida nights, and plenty of water toys. You can't go wrong here. Close to essential shopping and mall life but off the beaten path on a side road canal and only seconds down the road to Honeymoon Island, a wonderful beach, and day adventure. Island feel but also close drive to the fun, nightlife, and energy of Tampa. We traveled with discerning parents and would you believe they loved it! The owner was also kind and accommodating which sounds like so little but can really make the stay that much more memorable. Amazing birds out back for the intrepid birder and dolphins literally right out back in the canal. Who needs Bush Gardens? This is our go-to home away from home if we ever come back this way. 5 stars all da way!

Aloha to my Hawaiian guests! It was my pleasure to have you stay at the house...and it was even better to hear that you had such a good time. Very nice of you to mention the "frigid air con" in the villa, a serious "must have" for Florida in the Summer! And yes, there is something for everyone here...from relaxing bird and dolphin watch on the private dock to swimming with the Manatees in The Springs. Mahalo for taking the time to write a review...hope to see you again soon!

The accommodations were wonderful! Sharon is a great hostess. We liked it so much we are returning again to visit. We stayed at a location down the street previously but decided to try a different property as the first rental had terrible mattresses. Honeymoon Island beach house had very comfortable mattresses.

It was great having you here and delighted that you will be back next month with the whole family for the "family reunion/birthday celebration" for your Mom. The house is the perfect venue for all the families with the dock being a great common area for everyone, and ample other spaces when the need for privacy. Thank you for taking the time to write a review...looking forward to meeting everyone!

We stayed at Honeymoon Island Beach House early April and extremely enjoyed our stay. The place was sparking clean, beautifully decorated and was very well maintained. It had such a warm and cozy feeling to it. The bed was the best I have slept on, I think, ever. We found just about everything we could possible need already supplied for us, except for food. We absolutely loved to sit outside on the deck, trying to catch a glimpse of the dolphins. We were lucky to have seen them a couple of times. It was just so relaxing. Everything the pictures showed were true to life. Mind you the pictures do not do the place justice. I enjoyed having Wi-Fi. For me it is a lifeline for many things. Kayaks and bikes were also supplied, but we never used them. The location was close to anything we might have needed. Sharon is so accommodating and very friendly. She really made you feel comfortable and at home. Thanks Sharon!!! If our plans ever take us that way again, we'll be sure to come see you!

Would love to have you back...it's not the same without you, Jackie, and the boys! It was great seeing you all on the dock enjoying the peace and tranquility watching for dolphins especially at dawn! Thank you for this outstanding review, I am thrilled that you had a wonderful stay!

Sharon is an excellent host. The accommodations are very nice and clean. Laundry room on premises. Sitting on the deck and patio area, you can enjoy the view and sunshine. A notebook with information on the area is provided. Lots of beautiful beaches, restaurants, and shopping opportunities in this area. Our stay was a pleasant experience!
