About Penelope Haskell

I am a young at heart healthy 70 year old with a great zest for life. I am originally from Glasgow Scotland and have lived in the US since 1965. I enjoy reading, power walking, cycling and sewing. I love a good movie and attend the theater when there is something worth seeing. I belong to several book clubs and enjoy spending time with my friends. I consider life an adventure and look forward to meeting you and sharing stories.

Penelope Haskell purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Penelope Haskell chose Dunedin

I fell in love with my home the first time I saw it over 20 years ago. I envisioned the possibilities. I have always wanted to run a B&B but life thus far has gotten in the way of my realizing that dream. I am around the corner from one of Florida's best beaches and have the Pinellas Trail literally across the street. Its paradise found.

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance from Honeymoon Island Beach, the Dunedin Causeway. The Pinellas Trail is right at the end of my street. Downtown Dunedin with its great restaurants and quaint shops is absolutely delightful. Tarpon Springs Sponge docks is a must see and it is 6 miles north. Clearwater Beach is only 4 miles from here.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved Penelope and we really enjoyed the location! We rented bicycles and used the pinellas trail to get to the beach at Honeymoon Island as well as explore downtown Dunedin!

A very affordable location is a short drive from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this clean Dunedin two bedroom getaway. This hidden location is in a quiet neighborhood and only a short drive from many vacation hot spots.

Our family of four was very comfortable during our visit. The savings let us spend more money on dining, shopping and a visit to Busch Gardens.

Depending on which direction you want to travel, you can get to Clearwater Beach, Tarpon Springs, Dunedin’s downtown shopping, Honeymon Island or the Countryside Mall in minutes.

Thank you Penelope ! !

Cute house in a nice neighborhood near Honeymoon island

  • 5 of 5

Penny was a great host and the apartment was decorated with love. The location is within walking distance of the Honeymoon Island Causeway intersection and we highly recommend Frenchy's. Its less than 15 mins to walk. Its also a 5 minute walk to the Jolly Trolly stop to get around town, including downtown Dunedin, very convenient. Lastly, about location, its a quick walk to a bike rental spot so you can bike to Honeymoon Island.

We had another couple stay with us and the bedroom set up was on either side of the bathroom, so that was nice, but to exit the apartment, our friends had to walk though the bathroom and our bedroom. Not a big deal for us, but be sure to put the early risers in the front room. The yard is beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed meeting our host. I would stay here again.

Cute little apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Penny was such a gracious and caring host of a really cute apartment. We had a bit of an issue with the TV set ups, which we addressed with Penny, but overall, we had everything we needed.

Dunedin is such a great town with something for everyone!

Thanks Penny!

So Clean and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Penny was such a sweet hostess, always available for our questions! Everything in her apartment was new and beautifully decorated and she made us feel so at home. We biked to the beach a few times and nearby restaurants. The backyard was a dream, such a well cared for garden and we always looked forward to the visit from the bunny that occasionally comes in the yard! Would definitely stay here again. Oh yeah, the wine and cookies were a nice touch upon arrival!
