“Perfect Family Trip”
Reviewed 26 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Let me start with - we travel frequently, have high expectations, and give praise sparingly - USUALLY. The condo is EXACTLY as advertised and in the perfect location to enjoy historic downtown or the beach! The Pinellas Trail is close and just about anywhere you want to go is an easy bike ride away. Clean, beautiful, quiet, relaxing, & well-equipped are all ways to describe this great place - but it just doesn't say enough... John & Shelia have thought of everything you may need for your vacation - just fly or drive in and start enjoying. We loved our boat trip to 3 Rooker Bar and our boat tour of Dunedin with John. Shelia was spot-on with her recommendation of Casa Tina - AWESOME food with a fun atmosphere! Antiques shops & gift boutiques are plentiful with Clearwater beach only a few miles South. We are already planning for our next visit - THANKS so much John & Shelia (daughter Katie you were a was a delight as well)!!!

“A Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 27 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Firstly, let me say thank you to John and Sheila for being perfect hosts. Ther wasn't a question about the area they couldn't answer. Or a thing they won't do to help you out (thanks for the loan of the fishing poles!)

This is one of the nicest places my wife and I have stayed. The location is ideal and the condo (villa) was spotless. This is truly a home from home, with everything provided for your comfort. The owners (John & Sheila) have put a lot of thought into how to make holiday makers happy, and it shows.

The condo is right on the causeway to honeymoon island. This is another thing the owners have thought through, by providing passes for entrance onto the island at their own expence.

One of the highlights, is a free boat ride around the islands by John. He takes you out on the boat for 2/3 hours and shows you the local islands and wildlife. He has vast knowledge of the area and habitat that live on, and around the islands.

The condo is situsted about 2 miles from downtown Dunedin, 6 miles from Clearwater. Also very close to Tarpon springs, Busch Garden and Orlando is about 85 miles(1.5hrs) away for Disney ect. There is very good shopping in the area and some lovely restaurants (Bon Appetit was one of our fav's). Also Publix is very close by, as is Walmart for food shopping when you want to cook in.

I would highly recommend Dockside Villas as a place to relax and wind down for a week or two. It won't disappoint.

We will definitely be returning.

The only down side is that there isn't a pool. But you are so close to the gulf sea (which is as warm as a bath) that you're only 2 minutes from dipping your toes in.

PS. Forgot to mention that Dolphins are always swimming out the back.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed 14 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

If you want a relaxing, peaceful holiday then this is the place for you.The villa was very comfortable with everything you could need. The covered parch was ideal to sit and have meals under and watch the dolphins swim by. The included boat ride with John the owner was an amazing experience as we had dolphins swimming at the side of the boat. Honeymoon Island is 5 minutes away with beautiful sandy beaches and warm sea to swim in. John and Sheila provide a pass for the Island and are excellent hosts. A supermarket and good place to eat are less than 5 minutes away from the villas.
