Description of the Dunedin vacation condo rental
Free boat with stay!!!

The Captain's Quarters is a spacious and beautiful, fully equipped waterfront condo. You can easily hop to islands with sandy beaches, shade trees, and water birds. You can also fish in crystal clear grass flats for spotted trout, red fish, snook, and tarpon. Make sure you take the boat to deserted Gulf Beach islands for sea-shelling, and swimming.

A free boat comes with your vacation!! No other vacation rentals in the area offers this amenity!

Boating not your thing? Relax on your private dock for Captain's Quarters guests only. Take a scenic beach bike ride on the Dunedin Causeway or head to Honeymoon Island for nature trails. While you're there you can take the ferry to the #1 rated island -Caladesi Island and grab a bite to eat at their cafe.

Are you into shopping and dining? Downtown Dunedin has a culture that can not be found anywhere else! Enjoy unique shopping experiences and very unique dining. If you enjoy healthy Mexican food..Casa Tina's is our favorite! It's so close you could ride one of the bikes the Captain's Quarters provide! Oh and did I mention we are known for our fresh seafood? And there is PLENTY of it!!

Want to go for a drive? Tampa, FL is only 30 minutes away and you can find anything and everything there. This city is known for its night life, shopping, and restaurants. Head to International Plaza, historic Ybor City, or Hyde Park Village for all three! Guests can also go to Busch Gardens or Adventure Island to experience high velocity roller coasters and water park adventures!

Looking for a little magic? Orlando and Walt Disney World is only about a 2 hour drive. Perfect for day trips! Adults will enjoy the 4 different theme parks just as much as the kids!!

Fishing charters with owner Captain Alex now available. This is safe and fun for all ages! A must do for Captain's Quarters guests! Please contact me for more information.
Area Information
A natural wooded and subtropical setting, open waterfront, and quaint village-like setting all combine to make Dunedin an enchanting Florida getaway. Visitors will readily see why it is recognized as one of the most desirable places to live and work in Florida. Boasting over 1,400 acres of unspoiled park land and a view of the Gulf of Mexico that is unobstructed by the development prevalent in other coastal locales, it is easy to understand why many seasonal residents end up making the area their permanent home.

Called "Delightfully Different," Dunedin offers visitors a unique experience. Steeped in Scottish heritage, the town of Stirling, located in Scotland, is Dunedin's sister city. The Highland Games and Festival, held every spring, showcases this legacy while bringing an international flavor to the area through the varied cuisine and the competing bands and dancers from around the world.
Visitors to charming downtown Dunedin can stroll brick sidewalks while stopping in fine restaurants, antique stores and art galleries. A portion of the Pinellas Trail, a 47-mile-long linear park, winds right through downtown, offering bikers, walkers and rollerbladers a chance to stretch their legs. The Dunedin Fine Arts Center presents a unique view of Florida's environment, history and people via the "Florida Treasures" Art Mural. This fascinating mural is 85 feet long and is comprised of hand-painted glazed ceramic tiles.

Dunedin's natural escapes include Honeymoon and Caladesi Island State Parks, among the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands on Florida's coast. Caladesi, in fact, is so untouched that it is accessible only via a public ferry or private boat. These unspoiled refuges are ideal locations for family picnics, swimming, boating, fishing and shelling. Or take a guided walk led by a park ranger to learn about the many birds which make the islands their home, including endangered species such as the Great Blue Heron, Wood Storks and Snowy White Egrets. Whatever activities you choose, be prepared for peaceful seclusion and a view of Florida in its pristine state.

fantastic getaway

from the time you pull up to the beautiful landscaping through the captains quarters to the 3 sliding glass doors showing the covered deck which leads to the awning covered boat dock and seated area to see the beautiful gulf right off the canal which is peaceful and relaxing starts your vacation with great enthusiasm. the amenities are just as great from everything inside the condo to make you feel at home. there is a tv in both bedrooms, I tv in living area, cookware, dishes, beautiful dining area looking out to see the beautiful morning sun through the wall of glass, the laundry, the boats at your disposal, bicycles and it goes on . the stores, restaurants are within minutes/blocks from you. the owners make sure everything is perfect for your experience, from the accomadtions to the informative personal instructions to ensure your safe ride on your own assigned boat. they have an information folder to also help you get around and find anything you might want or need we also met couples that are repeat guests that have stayed elsewhere, but found these accomodations and are repeated guests every year. we can see why. clearwater and tarpon springs are each within 20 minutes and many other places of interest are also close. our vacation met all our expectations, plus a little more . it was a relaxing and fun filled vacation. thank you for our making our trip memorable. we went to islands minutes from us and the fishing was a lot of fun.i could go on but if you happen to pick this for a getawy from the everyday, you will not be disappointed.

Great home away from home

We loved our time at Captain's Quarters. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed. St, Joseph Sound is just beautiful and we love the 'off' season. Having a boat to explore the islands and fish was such fun. The location is excellent. Running, biking, swimming all just out the front door. Shopping is close by with a huge completely redone mall just a few miles down the road. We plan to come back in 2015.

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for the nice review. It was so nice meeting you are your family and happy to hear you had such a great time exploring the islands. Hope to see you again next year.

Can't Wait to Return!!!

We are already planning our next trip to stay here next year! Really an amazing place to stay, Dunedin is quaint and perfect. Captain Alex and Janet are always there for any questions, problems or just to unlock the condo you've locked yourself out of:) There is still plenty of privacy if you rather on your private deck. All you need is here just like at home, only needed beach towels:) Having your own boat to go fishing, island hopping and see the incredible local wildlife make this a truly one of a kind GEM! The dolphins, manatees, rays, birds, (even an armadillo!) etc we were able to see made this an unforgettable vacation. For a serious beach goer like me, Caledesi Island is the way to go, Honeymoon has tons of sharp rocks and broken shells. If too windy, no boat either, so a 20 min drive to Clearwater etc for better beach on those days. Fishing is great here, lots of variety-even small sharks! Excellent for more serious fisherman, family fun etc Everything you could want is close by, lots of good local restaurants, shops and bars. Bikes and helmets are right by your door. Bait shop very close by:) We will bring some more fishing gear for next time, some is available at condo like a bait bucket, good kids poles, life jackets etc We truly recommend Captains Quarters for anyone seeking an incredible vacation experience!

Captain's Quarters January 2014

We had a great time during our stay at the Captain's Quarters in Dunedin, FL. Alex and Janet were great hosts and very helpful. Although the weather did not quite cooperate, it was still a lot of fun using the boat for fishing and a trip to Caladesi State Park. We are very hopeful to come back again. Despite the weather, we still made some nice trips to the Clearwater Aquarium and to Tarpon Springs. We were also able to enjoy Honeymoon Island. We highly recommend Captain's Quarters!!!

Janet Perrone

Owner's reply:

I wish the weather would have cooperated, the boat is fun for fishing and going to the islands. We always want beautiful weather for our guests. Hope to see you and your family again soon.

Ideal for our family of four. We had a great time! From the back deck we could watch the dolphins each morning and being able to get to the islands with the boat was awesome! Janet and Captain Alex were also great hosts.

Janet Perrone

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the review. I know we love watching the dolphins too, it's a great way to start the day! It was great paddle boarding with you.

Hope to see you again soon

Perfect For Us

Everything exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were wonderful and rather upscale, Alex and Janet , the owners, feel like old dear friends. The boats are perfect for fishing and cursing around the sound and there is much to do in the area. The boats are in great condition and very basic . You must be the kind of person who does not mind sitting on a hard seat without a back that ride with a bit of bump in a chop as they are flat bottom, .being very familiar with these types of boats, they were perfect for us! You can fish , motor over to an amazing Island Park, boat to a restaurant on the water and the fishing is great, Alex will show you all of the best spots. We caught diner more than once. But even if your not a boater it is nice to be near the water with all of the wild life around and well appointed decks . All your outdoor needs are taken care of from bikes to fishing rods. We are going to book our next trip right now and plan to return to what feels like a second home on a regular basis.

Janet Perrone

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your review. There's nothing better than catching your own dinner. You can't get fish any fresher than that! Can't wait to see you guys on your next vacation! Thanks again!

Beautiful condo,amazing location....."Paradise!"

Well what a beautiful place this is,an absolutely amazing location..the condo itself was like a home from home...just lovely,we loved the beach and nautical theme the condo had too also had absolutely everything in there you need...just bring your clothes!!!...all amenities within walking distance...had so much fun on the boat used it most days,Caladesi,honeymoon and three rooker easily accessible and are the most amazing beaches what I can only describe as paradise...just take your beach chairs,fill up your cool box with your lunch,water and beers and hey presto spend the day relaxing or exploring the stunning islands. Janet and Captain Alex are the loveliest people,very helpful,always near by should you need anything...also recommended us some great places to visit and eateries,they go beyond and more to assist you have a great vacation. Tampa airport is around 40 mins away so not far if you hire a car from airport,fantastic malls if you do hire a car none of them any further than an hours drive away...Bay shore international plaza right next to Tampa AIrport,Westfield shopping mall around 15-20 mins away by car,Ellenton shopping outlet around an 1hour 15minutes drive away,worth a visit great shops. Great wildlife dolphins swimming right up to your decking outside your condo...a family of dolphins came everyday,playing and jumping sometimes 8 feet into the air!....also when we were out on the boat dolphins swimming around us playing next to our boat...a wonderful site! Catching fish constantly just sitting on the dock outside your condo....large white stork would wait outside our patio every morning for us to catch him a fish...then would be back again for his dinner...on the last day she brought her baby with her,as if to say thank you and goodbye. You have to stay here,I've told my partner I'm retiring here!!...the best holiday we have ever had....didn't want to leave,coming back again next year...shame it's so far away for us or we would stay here more often.

Janet Perrone

Owner's reply:

Thank you Darren. We are very blessed to live in paradise. It is wonderful to sit on the dock and watch the dolphins, birds and the fish around the light at night. The outlet in Ellenton is definately worth the drive.
Hope to see the two of you again next year.

Best deal around

You seriously can't beat this place. Such a great time with the boat and all the different beautiful surrounding islands. We live right by the beach but love going to this area that's like old Florida. The owners think of everything from bikes, kayaks, fishing poles,we even enjoyed some Texas hold em they had in the closet. Whether you want to be active or relax its got everything. This was our second time back, but definitely not our last!

Janet Perrone

Owner's reply:

We are very blessed to be living in paradise. Boating or just sitting on the dock relaxing is the best. So glad that you had a wonderful vacation and sure we will see you again.

Great Place and Very Clean

The ONLY negative thing I can say is that it only has one bathroom for a two bedroom condo. But the condo is gorgeous, the boat was an added plus and the owners were very helpful.

Janet Perrone

Owner's reply:

Hi Medlin Family,

The boat is great to have to go to the islands and fishing. Hope to see you again soon.

Fantastic Fishing Holiday

The condo was perfect, it was quiet, comfortable and very well equipped. The views from the living area and bedroom were fantastic. The new dock was a lovely place to spend relaxing, fishing and taking photographs of the beautiful Florida sunsets. Alex and Janet are lovely people and are always there to help with any questions you may have. The boat was a great fun, we enjoyed visiting the islands that could only be accessed by boat and had some great days fishing. Alex provided us with excellent fishing rods and gear all you need for fishing. We also enjoyed using the BBQ and eating our meal overlooking the water. The condo is in an excellent area, so easy to get around and we took advantage of the bicycles, some great cycle paths just a bit hot and humid in July. Overall an excellent holiday with no complaints.

Captains Quarters... again!

My son and I have been going to the Captains Quarters for a couple of years now and are heading back again at the end of August 2010. Firstly your hosts, Janet and Alex, are very friendly and accomodating but never intrusive. The apartments are verey comfortable, stylishly furnished and have all mod cons. You have your own boat, one for each apt, and Alex is on hand for any nervous first timers. The surrounding scenery and the freedom the boat affords you is outstanding and worth every penny. Dunedin is quiet and quaint but within easy reach of Clearwater or Tampa for anyone wanting some louder nightlife. Nightlife at the captains quarters is centered around the dock, with its underwater fishing light, the large grill on the porch of every unit and meeting new people for a laugh and a beer. There are bicycles, fishing poles and kayaks available to use for everyone and the world is literally your oyster from the captains quarters!

Dunedin FL Beach Fishing trip

We stayed at this lovely condo and had a wonderful week. The use of the boat was great for exploring the nearby islands that are near the condo. The owners were so friendly and made you feel welcome. My husband loves to fish and he was able to take the boat out every morning and fish. He also went on a Charter Trip with captain Alex. The condo was decorated very nicely and everything was very clean. We hope to go back there again soon!
