Plan your escape to Caladesi Island, a nearby, award-winning nature-filled island in this gorgeous Spanish-themed 38 foot upscale houseboat rental. With a beach that has been ranked one of the best in the country, this coastal island with nature trails is connected to Clearwater Beach by shallow water and is located in Dunedin, Florida and is easily accessible by ferry or boat. No boating experience is necessary as the boat will be driven to a dock (that has electricity and water) for you.

The space
What a perfect way to self isolate, if that’s what a family chooses to do, since it’s on an island with very few people on it after the ferry leaves for the day, leaving you with an island that has a beautiful beach, nature trails, and kayak trails. We do a thorough job cleaning the boat in between guests as we clean all surfaces each and every time we rent it out. We originally  designed this boat, as well as all of our boats, with cleanliness in mind with all counter surfaces being granite with the flooring being wood or marble. Also, all furniture is leather so that it can be thoroughly sanitized. We also make sure to sanitize all handles and knobs in the boat as well.  

For more photos, please visit the Valencia Blue at Florida Boat Suites at floridaboatsuites.com. You are granted the exclusive use and the entire boat for your stay. This rental also includes the use of a double kayak to access Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin, which is just across the water. No boating experience is required for this unique vacation. The boat will be driven to Caladesi island for you. Host will greet guests at a dock in Dunedin (where there is free public parking nearby) to drive the boat to Caladesi and do a thorough walk through of the boat when it arrives at the island.

The interior of this boat has been decked out with solid wood floors, granite surfaces, and is beautifully designed, featuring a comfortable back bedroom with a queen Sealy mattress and plenty of drawer space; coverings on the windows for privacy; a kitchenette complete with a granite countertop, Keurig coffee maker, microwave, hot water kettle, an electric skillet, two mini refrigerators, and four under-cabinet storage baskets for food; a living area equipped with a leather sofa, two small ottomans, an electric fireplace, and a smart flat-screen television that gets around 40 channels as well as Netflix; and below deck accommodations with a full size and twin bed along with a bathroom with a shower, sink, and electric toilet. This boat’s interior is highlighted with Spanish decor, a marble floor medallion, and carved wood wall accents. Keeping luxury in mind, the boat is furnished with premium linen and towels and added extras such a throw blanket and extra pillows.

The boat also features several outdoor eating and entertaining areas such a table on the lower front deck and a hard-top covered middle deck that boasts a built-in bar, Bluetooth stereo, zero-gravity chairs, and grill. This boat also features a fresh-water shower on the back deck.

This state park also has restroom facilities for use while on the island. There are also abundant picnic tables, a snack bar, gift shop, a hiking trail, and 3 mile sandy beach on this gorgeous island park. There is also a kayak trail to view the natural Florida habitat near the boat docks. This upscale boat allows you to be comfortable while indulging in this island dream vacation. Staying on award-winning Caladesi Island also gives you access to Clearwater Beach or Dunedin by way of a double kayak that we will provide. There are also several daily shuttles going back and forth from the island to Honeymoon State Park in Dunedin for a fee. There is a trolley that goes from downtown Dunedin to Clearwater Beach. This gives you the chance to stay on a coastal island that is only accessible by water, along with the flexibility to go into a town.

On a limited basis, there are 3 day minimum nights available before or after a guest. Please check the availability calendar to see if this is the case.

Guests will be renting out the entire boat.
