Each morning guests awaken to the aroma of fresh coffee, a daily newspaper, and a tantalizing breakfast! Whether you are on Holiday or traveling on business, the Meranova’s renowned chef will prepare a gourmet breakfast daily designed to meet any dietary needs or restrictions. Classically trained in New Orleans, Paris and San Francisco, our chef’s mouthwatering creations are made from seasonal ingredients using fresh whole foods. Unlike traditional Bed and Breakfast Inns, we serve our expanded gourmet breakfasts “room service style” to your suite, porch or balcony, or one of our outside venues, the gazebo, orchid garden or swimming pool between 8am and 10am.
For guests staying for 7 days or longer who have smaller appetites, may be dieting, or are simply lighter eaters, we offer an option called the “Sunday Breakfast Plan”. This plan omits breakfast each morning except for 1 time per week (guests day of choice), has limited housekeeping, unlimited towel service and a daily newspaper. It offers a 10% discount on rates for 7 days, 15% discount on 14 days, and a 20% discount on 21 days.
Pool & Gardens
For your leisure, we have a heated swimming pool which we maintain at 80 degrees during the winter months. This temperature we consider warm but still refreshing. The pool is open from dawn to dusk each day and has a table and chairs, recliners with pads, umbrella and pool towels. A basket of sunscreen options is also available.
If you decide to go to the beach, we have beach bags available with towels and sunscreen, small coolers, and chairs, on a first come first serve basis.
Enjoy the coastal breezes from your porch or balcony or in our gazebo, a great place to watch downtown or enjoy one of Dunedin’s many special events! Read in our quiet orchid garden nestled on the east side of the swimming pool behind the large ficus hedge. We have many varieties of orchids which bloom at different times of the year and provide amazing beauty to this calm sanctuary.
Dunedin outside our front gate
The Meranova is a perfect place to take romantic sunset walks or bird watch from the shell filled shores of Honeymoon and Caladesi islands which are rated among the best beaches in the U.S. as well as Clearwater Beach, all just a short drive away. Golfers can enjoy one of the 20 golf courses located within 10 miles of the Inn. Bicyclers, joggers, power walkers and skaters can lose themselves on the 49 mi. scenic Pinellas Trail just one block from the inn.
Our downtown location has many advantages because we are walking distance to over 25 shops, 25 restaurants, 7 breweries and just blocks from the Marina. Many of our return guests feel that a rental car isn’t necessary because of the convenience afforded by our location. Our Shops and Galleries offer a wide assortment of local fine art, gifts, and fashion and our local dining spans the entire range from fine dining to food trucks that can please any palate. Our microbreweries offer something for even the most discerning connoisseurs. Live entertainment abounds in this small town with music venues on every corner. Dunedin is also known for its many special events which are listed on the web site www.VisitDunedinfl.com, over 30 events just outside our front gate which provide entertainment and culture for most of the year.
