I can't say enough great things about the Meranova Guest Inn. I recently stayed in the Southwest Suite and it was a truly delightful experience. The suites are charming and immaculately clean. You are served a delicious gourmet breakfast in your suite every morning. You have plenty of privacy and the grounds are like a tropical oasis. You're right across the street from the quaint Main Street area with a variety of restaurants and shops, all within walking distance. Frank and David are wonderful hosts and very helpful with local information and things to do. This is the place to stay when you are in the area!

Made our honeymoon weekend amazing and relaxing

David and Frank are wonderful! The room, The Cottage was beautiful and very clean, so much attention to detail. Coffee, tea, snacks, DVDs, a fridge, anything you would need for your stay. Frank makes a beautiful breakfast each morning and it was served in our room. Our stay here was better than we ever expected and plan on coming back annually to celebrate our anniversary.

Oasis in Dunedin

The Meranova is a small oasis in the historic section of downtown Dunedin. Frank and David create the perfect escape from your troubles. The rooms are private, impeccably clean, tastefully decorated, have full private baths, and contain efficiency kitchens. I love to cook and I am pretty good and can tell you Frank's breakfasts are as good as any five star restaurant. The ingredients are fresh and cooked perfectly. David creates beautiful gardens. Enjoy your breakfast on your porch or in the gazebo or orchid garden. Frank and David are perfect hosts. In addition, there are great nearby restaurants and a great local brewery (Dunedin Brewery). I loved running along the water and my husband biked the Pinellas Trail. The Meranova welcomes gay couples as it welcomes all couples. I think as long as you are nice and quiet, this is for you. If you want a rowdy, loud, party atmosphere, then the Meranova is NOT for you! My husband and I just enjoyed a great week escape from Boston winter. Thanks Meranova!

Best B&B!

My husband and I have stayed at B&B's all over the US, our stay at Meranova was the best. The attention to detail that Frank & David do with perfection is not only wonderful, but comforting. The breakfast was A+, very delishous. I would highly recommend this B&B and cannot wait to return! Frank & David are as charming as their home!

The ONLY place to stay in FLORIDA!

Every time I have to travel for work purposes, I stay at the Meranova Guest Inn. Every time I have the freedom to CHOOSE where to stay for a personal vacation, sabbatical, or fun trip with friends, I stay at the Meranova Guest Inn. The 5-star CHEF food and the presentation of breakfast in the privacy of my suite or the privacy of my private porch -- all of the hospitality and fabulous dining, sheer cleanliness and perfection of the suites and the property -- cannot be beat. I travel the country and the globe, and Dunedin is, by far, the best of the best. And, the walking distance to the Pinellas Bike Trail, the Bay, and restaurants on the water, all part of this wonderful package! Thanks, too, Southwest Airlines, for the great flights to Tampa airport, and the quick drive to the Meranova Guest Inn . . . simply THE BEST!
