Unique Benefits

Ocean front with birds, fish jumping, dolphin, manatee with quick access to small beach islands by canoe or kayak or boat. 100 year old trees, palms... enjoy this nature oasis, some call a wild life bonanza, yet close to everything.

Why Kids Love It

Fish from the dock, watch birds dive, watch mullet (vegetarian) fish jump, listen for dolphins, try to spot a slow moving manatee...they barely ripple the water. Outdoor shower to cool off. Get to the small beach islands in our canoe quickly...it is like having your own island.
Take the Jolly Trolley to the beaches. Close to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Winter and Hope, the dolphins who star in the Dolphin Tale movies. Some movie support people stayed with us during the filming.

Inside Scoop

East west travel is easier on Drew St unless you want to access all of the small malls and big box stores on Gulf to Bay. Countryside Mall has an indoor skating rink in the center of the mall, quite unique. Dolphin enter Venetian Basin anytime of day or night, making a big splash across from the dock, then splashing up and down as they eat and play. Out in the canoe or boat splashing and boating in a circle often attracts dolphins. Manatee do not even ripple the water as they are slow moving. In the canoe or a boat you will notice a grey blob, just stop and wait for them. In the Basin you may see their face as they take in the sun next to the mangrove tree across from the dock. Egret (tall white bird with long legs) think they own the streets, traffic stops to let them cross, and they are sure they own any boat at the dock, they have to inspect it. In one of the tall native Florida pines on the property Osprey have built a huge nest, it took 3 months to build this architectural wonder January to March, the eggs hatched late May. Generation after generation will return to the nest. See if you can tell which tree on the property is a native Florida Oak. Hint look west side near the sidewalk. It is unlike any other oak tree. On the west side of the ground floor building are 3 orchid trees blooming January through to April, an air plant they are not on the irrigation system and are not watered ever, they get their moisture from the air.

About the owner: Environmentalist volunteer with World Oceans Day, published author, previous radio & TV show host, volunteered with great teens in the neighborhood as part of Junior Civitan (service club), life long volunteer, corporate president for 42 years, proud parent.

Why this property? Having traveled most of Florida I kept coming back to Clearwater because it is a family town with cultural events, the beaches are easy to reach and varied....Pier 60 bustles with activity while North Beach and Caladesi offer quiet relaxation. Free use of the canoe to explore the small beach islands nearby. Free use of 4 bikes to cycle the quiet streets of Old Clearwater Bay, or the adventures of the 40 mile Pinellas Trail or capture the views going north along Edgewater. Very impressed with the Clearwater Marine (rescue) Aquarium and followed the progress of "Winter" the dolphin right from the moment she was rescued.
