Coconut Villas of Dunedin

Reviewed 4 April 2014

Our stay, with 2 couples was in March 2014 for 1 week. Overall we recommend the accommodations and would likely return, but with only a small effort the place could be so much better. The location is one of the high points - on the water and convenient access to Honeymoon Island's beaches and Dunedin.. The unit we had was pleasingly decorated and clean. Although we did not plan to watch a lot of TV, we thought it time to send the current TV to the electronics recycling depot and spend a few bucks to acquire a unit built in the current millennium. Everything else in our unit worked well, but a few details could be improved. The toilet paper was so thin it was laughable and it would have been nice to have more than one dish towel. Minor details, but indicative of very good, but not excellent rating. Also the locks and/or keys really did not work well. When one of our party attempted entry to the main door, the lock could not be opened with the key after several minutes of trying. A few good rattles on the patio door at the other side of the unit solved the problem. The glass door slid open even though it had been locked from the inside. Time to improve the security.

It's not a BAD place by any means. My parents live in Dunedin so there's a good chance that we'll stay here again. But that's because I haven't seen any other two bedroom options in the city. We had two major complaints about the place. First and foremost was the fact that there's only one bathroom. So, while there are two bedrooms, there is no "master". That made it a bit challenging with four of us. We're usually a family of 7 so I don't think that we'd stay here with the entire brood. The second gripe is a lack of service. We had a bedroom door that would not stay closed or locked. Not a deal breaker but certainly an inconvenience when my wife and I are trying to enjoy some privacy. We ended up having to take the fake potted palm tree that was in our room and sliding it in front of the closed door to keep it that way (see photo). Hardly a proper fix. We called twice on the first day and once on the second day. Each time we were assured that it would be fixed. By the third call, we pretty much just gave up on any hope that the maintenance guy was actually going to show up.

I guess this lack of response could be a real red flag to those of you considering this place, if they treat all of their calls the way they did with this one. I would hate to think that a broken AC unit or a stopped up toilet would be ignored for days.

There was also a BUNCH of junk being stored in the hall closet (see photo). No idea what it was for but it made that closet completely unusable. Fortunately we didn't need it.

Other than that and a few minor things (sketchy wifi, change left on the counter and dishes left in the dishwasher), it's not a bad place. It's clean and well equipped if you like to cook some of your meals in and not eat out every meal.

Room Tip: It appears that all of the units are on the water so I other than choosing something upstairs (to av...

My daughter and I stayed at these beautiful villas last spring and absolutely loved our time there! Now I am traveling again in December to the Tampa Bay area and hoping to stay here with my husband! Great place!

My wife and I spent 8 days at the condominium located at 2675 B Pineapple retreat St. Joseph Dr. E. Oct 9-17. The location was awesome! Would have slept with the sliding door to our bedroom open but unfortunately no screen. All the facilities were very clean. The washer and dryer looked worn out so we used a laundromat nearby. Although the bed was reasonably comfortable it was squeaky noisy! Used the adequately equipped kitchen for breakfast and late night snacks only. Otherwise dining out was outstanding. Beaches were a short bicycle ride away. Did use the bicycles provided..I am BBI trained mechanic and believe it's time to replace these bicycles. Spokes are just so corroded/rusty my concern is that the wheels could collapse. We certainly would stay there again. The good greatly outweighed the weaknesses.

My wife ,son (7 year old) and I stayed here for the weekend. We had the unit on the ground floor in the corner of the property. The gulf and intercostal channel were literally steps out our backdoor. Out the front door was a pool area with gas grills available for use. This place is all you hope it will be. It's clean , reasonably priced , in a great location and best of all quiet . We watched dolphins playing just outside the back door at sunrise one morning!
We really enjoyed our time here and would not think twice about staying here again.

I would recommend that if you have little ones with you may want to get a unit on the other property. It's just down from this one about half a block. But, the pool area is larger and there is a nice tiki themed sitting area . In the back is a fish dock with a full sized table and chairs ...

Really liked this place!

Room Tip: I think anyone of them would be great. There is a unit nearest the road and bridge that I would not...

We arrived Oct 24 @ 8PM. @ 2691 Woodette Dr., Apt D. The masterbed was sunken in the middle, ice maker and TV remote not working. No onsite manager. We could not get hold of the office until after 9 the next day. The manager was in a meeting until after 10:00 and the only person who could approve us to move. Our digs advertised "Beautiful Waterfront Villa's". We had a waterfront canal and causeway view, which was very busy with construction going on. The manager Kyle would not move us and would send their repair person to fix problems. He did agree other units were available, but he was not moving us. As for the bed, the manager said move to the other bedroom. It appears he was not fixing the bed and if you read the review "CONSTRUCTION SITE OR HOTEL" you will see they also had a problem with the bed back in May 11, 2013. The repair person had not shown up on the second day in the AM. We left on our second day out of three. It appears they just want their money, not to have satisfied and returning customers. This trip was to celebrate our 41st Annv. They new this and would not try and work with us. We even offered to pay for an upgrade. The manager refused and again would not move us . SAD

Room Tip: Do not reserve 2691 Woodette Dr. Apt D. This bldg. has 4 condo units, ABCD. It is the last build...

Spacious apartment with a very nice kitchen. Clean, nice part view of the bay & 1/2 mile to Publics shop. A quiet relaxing place to stay.
Down sides are, 2 very old TVs. A 12" in the bedroom & a 20" approx. one in the living area. No HDMI connections (which I like to use to watch my live sports programs). 2 plastic chairs on the balcony with a useless 12" square plastic table. Impossible for the 2 of us to eat from this.
Other than that we had a nice stay.
Owner of 2675 St Joseph Dr. E. Apt C. please update the TVs & balcony furniture.

Room Tip: Good view of the bay but partly spoiled by the trees along the front of the building.
