Fantastic boating, great 3 bedroom home

Rating: 5 of 5

So nice to have my boat at the dock. Great fishing in the Gulf of Mexico waters. Fantastic views when I'm not on my boat. So relaxing to get away from my law practice. Family enjoyed this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. We return every year.

Peaceful and Safe for a Lady Alone

Rating: 5 of 5

It is so relaxing to listen and wait for the dolphins to come into the basin. The deck, patio and home have a beautiful view looking north to the Gulf of Mexico. Sunsets are an event each day. This is a great home to entertain. I rent a boat each time I visit; it is great to just hop into the boat and go...no fuss, no work. The little islands with beaches nearby are like having my own island. Walking along Edgewater is so pretty. And wonderful cycling streets and Pinellas Trail. This home is well equipped and a whole lot better than staying in a hotel. Jane

Fun, Relaxing, Safe
Rating 5 of 5
We stayed for the whole month of November, as we do each year. We found everything as the owner said, and more. Just gazing to the Gulf of Mexico is relaxing. The renovations and complete painting of exterior and interior is calming and inviting in this Florida style property. Dolphins came close to the dock often. Seeing a mother dolphin and young dolphin in their natural habitat is a wonder. Listen for the big splash dolphins make. Manatee enter the basin quietly so you have to look for them near the mangrove. We have a boat and kayaks. Even in the kayaks we could reach the beach islands just west of the home in minutes and it did not take long to get to Caladesi Beach State Park. We boat to Clearwater Beach and Dunedin restaurants and out into the Gulf of Mexico. Cycling and walking in the neighborhood and along Edgewater is great and the Pinellas Trail access is just two blocks away. We recommend a visit to the Clearwater Marine Rescue Aquarium where you will see Winter and the other marine life. This home is well equipped with gold rimmed china, cooking utensils, electronics, linens and towels in 3 linen closets. Our grandchildren visited again as they do each year we stay here and with a ladder at the end of the dock they swim in the salt water at high tide. It is a safe family area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are you close to Winter the star of the Dolphin Tale movie?
A: Yes we are very close to Winter at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, in fact some of the movie crew stayed with us during the filming. Dolphin Tale 2 will be released in the Fall of 2014.

A: The Clearwater Beaches win awards every year, for good reason. If you want bustling activity Pier 60 is the place to be but if you want quiet beach then you will enjoy North Beach.
