About the property

Two bed one bath sweet little cottage right in the heart of Dunedin

Adorable dog-friendly cottage right in the middle of quaint Dunedin- just three blocks from the water and downtown, two blocks from the Pinellas Trail, the library and the Blue Jays stadium. This renovated 1920's bungalow with two bedrooms and one bath is surrounded by tropical greenery and private outdoor spaces for you and your dog. The sunny kitchen, the spacious living room/dining room, and the comfy beds make the cottage a wonderful stay. There is a new sleeper sofa in the living room with a Sealy mattress for added comfort. The neighborhood is great, with shops, restaurants, and sunset walks by the water's edge.

This cozy cottage offers tranquility, elegance and light. A well stocked kitchen, luxury linens and toiletries, some good books, as well as fast internet and a smart TV (with Netflix and YouTube TV, no cable) in the living room, provide a real sense of relaxation and pampering. The space offers versatility and privacy for visitors, especially two couples, in that the front bedroom has an entrance from the front patio, as well as through the living room. There is a good sense of privacy and separation between the two bedrooms, and the bathroom is in the hallway between the kitchen and the back bedroom. Having two separate outdoor spaces- one in front and one in back- gives many options according to the time of day/angle of the sun, and your level of sociability. Under the ancient camphor tree at the side of the house, there is an outdoor shower which, although mainly for use after being at the beach, is also a fun way to shower while watching the stars!

Your cottage has its own private back patio and a sheltered front terrace that overlooks Douglas Avenue, a relatively busy street (by Dunedin standards- a lot of bikers, people walking their dogs, as well as cars etc.) You have two parking spaces available for your cars. There is a laundry building that is shared with the cottage at the back of the property, and we provide laundry detergent, bleach and dryer sheets. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, pots and pans, basics like spices, oil and vinegar, coffee, tea, sugar, creamer and paper goods. We provide two beach chairs, a beach umbrella and a cooler for your visits to quiet Honeymoon Island State Park (our favorite, 15 minutes north) or bustling Clearwater Beach, a 15 minute drive south.

This area is really what Dunedin is about- the neighborhood has many cottages from the 20s and the 40s, and is part of the walkable central old downtown that makes Dunedin such fun. People are biking over to the Pinellas Trail, or walking or riding their golf carts up Douglas to Main Street for all the restaurants and shops and the Farmers' Market. The sky just seems bigger and the sunsets are grand.

Although many of Dunedin's attractions are within walking or biking distance, there is a public bus that runs up Douglas. The Jolley Trolley, a fun ride which runs from over in Clearwater Beach up to Tarpon Springs, can be picked up either three blocks away on Edgewater Drive or four blocks north on Main Street. Uber and taxis are also available.

We live just a few minutes away and are always available by phone, email or in person for questions, problems, restaurant or real estate advice, but we leave you with complete privacy unless you ask. The sunsets are gorgeous two blocks away on the water, but they are also beautiful just while sitting out in front of the cottage watching the world go by!

We welcome your smaller dog (only one dog per stay, under 20 pounds), with a non-refundable $125 pet fee (additional cost for stays longer than a week) .

About Waverly Rennie

My husband and I live in Tanzania, working in public health, but get back to Dunedin as often as we can.

Why Waverly Rennie chose Dunedin

My great-grandfather came to Dunedin in 1922 and built a home a few blocks north, and my granddad had his photography studio just across the way. We love watching sunset at the marina and enjoying the restaurants on Main Street. This area is my idea of a perfect place to vacation and live!

Wonderful quaint cottage in quaint Dunedin.

  • 5 of 5

The property was decorated beautifully and the grounds were very nice. Bed was exceptionally comfortable and all the small extras to get you started were very well thought out. A nice morning walk into old Towne Dunedin. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Location. Location. Location.

Loved the stay here. The place is DARLING. Tastefully decorated, comfortable, and feels like home from the moment you step in. The hosts have thought of everything and provide everything you need. What I really loved is the location. You'll rarely need your car. The cottage is just a few blocks from everything you'll want to see and do (you can easily walk to downtown Dunedin, the Pinellas trail, the water, the stadium). And you can catch the Jolly Trolley to get to St Pete, Clearwater, Tarpon. Highly recommend.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cottage was exactly what we were hoping for our month long stay in Dunedin.

The decor was very nice,comfortable and very clean!Even though the location is on a street it is very quiet.Very centrally located,close to excellent restaurants and easy walking distance to the blue jay stadium.Really appreciated the thoughtful touches such as the recommendations re. good food,local attractions and stocking the kitchen so we could have our morning coffee before we did our initial grocery shopping!Leaving the lights on because you knew we were delayed in our initial arrival...nice touch!Loved having our morning coffee on the patio,peaceful and quiet.what more can we say,we'll be back.

Perfect accomodations and location

  • 5 of 5

As discerning short-term rental property owners ourselves in NC, we have very high standards when we travel and choose a short-term rental property in which to stay. We highly recommend this property. It was spotless, comfortable, well-appointed, and had attractive décor. The owners are delightful and think of everything. The location could not be more ideal as it was possible to walk to the charming "downtown" in about 10 minutes where coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, and charming shops abound. We were even lucky enough to visit when the farmer's market was open from 9-2 on Fridays and Saturdays where we listened to live music, ate delicious French crepes prepared in front of us, and shopped the beautiful artisan booths. We will be back. Pam and George Baston
