About the property

Tropical Tiki Oasis, Gorgeously Finished, Private Heated Pool/ Spa,

Gorgeously Furnished, Artistic Beach House, Featuring a Tropical, Tiki-bar Oasis...

*Our calendar is updated on a daily basis. Please check it for availability before contacting us:)

Sitting directly on the Pinellas Trail, this home features a new salt water swimming pool and spa, heated to your comfort zone. Three comfortably appointed queen bedrooms, all with new mattresses, high-count bed linens, fluffy white towels and sophistically rustic, eclectic, furniture pieces. Shabby-chic meets luxurious comfort! With handmade, Mexican Saltillo tile throughout, super fast Wi-fi and cable television, this gem of a vacation home will make you sad to leave!

Dunedin‘s main drag, an artsy, sociable and trendsetting region, is an easy 10-minute bike ‘stroll’ away. The amazing Pinellas Trail, a 48mi bike trail going to downtown Dunedin, and the beaches, is directly behind the house! You will Jump on one of our six beach cruisers, wheel it out the back yard gate and you’re off! Fancy a day at the beach? Load up our ‘Happy-Hour Wagon’ to one of the bikes, add a cooler, couple of chairs…and you’re off! Into bird watching? Wildlife? Strolling though tropical parkland? Take a left out of the gate, head 500ft down the Pinellas Trail, and enter the amazing Hammock Park! There's so much to do you'll probably never fit it all in...so you'll just have to come back and stay again:)

*For the benefit of our guests with children, we have installed a removable pool fence with a gate.

**Please note, for the benefit of all our guests, the entire premises, including garden and pool enclosure, is STRICTLY non-smoking.

About Sharon Gonzalez

Hello and thank you for your interest!

We are a large, blended family, with a crazy passion for traveling! Between the two of us - a British expat former public school teacher, and a retired Captain of the YFD, we've logged a lot of traveling mileage! From the Island of Borneo, to the South of France and all the way up through the Highlands of Mexico..we've lost count at this point! We found our home after an exploratory trip along the Gulf Coast of Florida. Driving though Dunedin on our way to the airport (Atlanta airport, we were a bit off track...exploring:)), we followed main street as it veered off through town. Loving the look of the town - beautifully kept and creative shop/restaurant fronts, we detoured along a couple of residential streets. The lack of high-rises that hog so much of the scenery in other Floridan coastal towns was an instant appeal...Dunedin seemed to embody a vibe we'd been looking for our entire trip - that "Old Floridan" feel that has become so elusive. Recently, on a trip down with our teens, we spent our last evening bike cruising around town. At one end of main street, playing on a huge inflatable screen, Gene Kelly in 'Singing in the Rain' crooned to locals and popcorn vendors sitting on blankets beneath gigantic live oaks covered with moss. Five blocks down, outside Skips Bar, members of the high school bagpipe band wailed out a few tunes. Further down a Jazz singer was singing her heart out at Kelly's, and beyond that, a firework display was going off. The atmosphere was alive, exciting and bustling...and this was all on an ordinary friday in April. It was pure magic.

Sharon Gonzalez purchased this house in 2014

Why Sharon Gonzalez chose Clearwater Area

At the bottom of our property sits a gate opening onto the Pinellas Trail. It's a ten foot wide bike/pedestrian pathway to local bars, shops and the beaches. We ride our bike everywhere! Why? Because it's easy, fun and we need the exercise! The house sits on a quiet, residential street, lined with 50's style Floridan ranches - each a different color and each different. The road was formed with hand laid house bricks in a herringbone pattern over sixty years ago...and is as cute as a button. This is an unpretentious neighborhood populated with outdoorsy, dog-walking friendly people. It's like stepping back 50 years and we find that very appealing! The house itself has been completely remodeled, is very comfortable, quiet and is quite literally a private, tropical oasis! We've landscaped both rear and front areas around the property with banana, pineapple and fruit trees, crushed shell and solar lighting.

What makes this house unique

Everywhere is within biking distance! Whether you fancy art classes at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center (ask us about it!!), Honeymoon island for an early morning walk, or breakfast at Brenda's on the Causeway, or The Covered Bridge...it's all very, very close!

Beautiful house, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Mermaid House! It was close to so many things we wanted to do the house itself is beautiful and just relaxing, and we loved the pool and hot tub! The owners were very responsive to messages and were extremely nice! While we were there we checked out Honeymoon Island and took the ferry to Caladesi Island, we walked the shops by clearwater and had some dinner, enjoyed the beach for a few days, and enjoyed some relaxing days at the house! Loved every minute of it and wish I could have stayed longer!! Thank you!

The Mermaid House is wonderful! It's very comfortable and decorated nicely. Pool area is great.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a nice location and having bikes available to ride on the adjoining Pinellas trail was a nice bonus. Honeymoon beach is very close and one of the prettiest beaches I've been to. Dunedin is a quaint town to visit and we had a very enjoyable vacation!
