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 the street.

Owner Info

John & Laura Kusching

John & Laura Kusching

Year Purchased: 2018

About the owner: John & I live in Clearwater and manage the properties ourselves. We purchased this property late 2018, and have been updating and remodeling ever since. If you visit often you will always see changes happening.

We treat this property just like our own home, we want anyone who visits to love it and be comfortable while they are here.

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 and kayaks to explore the small beach islands nearby. Free use of 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.

412 Venetian Drive

We stayed for a week and it was wonderful! The sunsets were amazing every evening and so was the show the pelicans, egrets, seagulls, osprey and other birds put on diving in Old Clearwater Bay for fish! There are three apartments on the lot that share the pier, canoe, many bikes and kayaks. It was perfect and the large front apartment we stayed in was huge and beautiful and the kitchen had everything you could possible think of! I would love to return in the future! The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful and a ten minute drive to downtown Duneden or Clearwater. The owners are working on projects to improve the property and are usually on site during the day and very helpful if needed.

Relaxing

We came to relax and enjoy the sunshine. We enjoyed the view every morning. It was great to have the canoe and kayaks to go out on the water with. We saw pelicans, osprey, jumping fish and dolphins. Great location for Clearwater and Dunedin. The owners were very helpful.

Fun and quiet place

Spent a week at Laura and John's place, had a great time. Place is equipped with kayaks and canoe, bikes (bring your helmets!) and all amenities you can desire. Bike path is only 1/4 mile away, Edgewater park just steps way. Beautiful views at all hours with plenty of deck and shades spaces. Our dog loved the place as well!

Thank you Andrew. Please come visit again and no need to bring your own helmet. Per your wonderful suggestion we have added one for each bike.Laura
