About David Dilday

I have always enjoyed real estate and the water. Have lived in the Tampa Bay area for more than 20 years. Love getting out and enjoying the water and all that the area has to offer. Enjoy fishing and cooking fresh fish for my girls.

David Dilday purchased this house in 2012

Why David Dilday chose Killarney Shores To The Gulf

This is like a piece of old Florida with it's quaint little towns and water front restaurants. Love the direct access to the Gulf, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and watching sunrises and sunsets. Sit and relax under the shade of the old pecan tree and feel the cool breezes and listen to the sound of the birds as your stress melts away. Very relaxing and peaceful. It is very close to most major attractions like Busch Gardens, MOSI, Disney, Clearwater Beach, Tarpon Sponge Docks, etc.

What makes this house unique

Love getting up early in the morning with cup of tea or coffee and watching the sunrise over the water.

Also love having a great meal at Sam's on the Gulf and then going for an ice cream at the Ice Cream Shop down the street.

Equipped with kayaks and bikes for your enjoyment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean. Had everything we needed and everything was just as described. Evenings on the dock were lovely!

A word of caution to boaters, the canals have some underwater hazards that can damage your boat if traveling during low tide. It would be nice if those areas were identified so visitors could take the necessary precautions. Our boat was damaged and when we spoke to some of the people in the community everyone seemed to know exactly where the hazards were.

Perfect for the price, location, and purpose!

My friends and I were visiting the area for a disc golf tournament. This house is located less then 10min away from the course and 12mi away from the Tarpon Springs sponge docks. The house is clean and the dock out back was so peaceful! I would stay again.

nice home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house. Great location really loved the dock. A really easy place to relax and fish. Great location.

We did not have any problems with the house other than the Master bed was really noisy every time one of us moved.

Whoever stayed there before us did not clean the dishes or the pans. Had to buy another pan, for baking biscuits.

The Grill really needs to be replaced, Really rusted out will not light automatically, so I had to use matches to get it started not very safe.

We wouldn't mind staying here in the future but some upgrades to the amenities would really help.

We had a great time here!

  • 3 of 5

I stayed at Paradise Palms with my mother and my daughter. The place was conveniently located to everything we wanted to see. The Lift adventure park was right up the street. The Wikee Wachee Mermaids were 15 min away and an hour or so to Silver Springs or Clearwater Beach. It was stocked with everything we needed and more. We paddled around in the Kayaks while the neighbors smiled and waved at us. The only problem was that the house had not been cleaned when we arrived. A text to the owner and he responded right away and called the cleaning crew who had mixed up the dates. It was quickly rectified and my cleaning fee refunded. Also, the twin beds were a little hard and the pillows were flat. However, we had a great time here!

We loved the property. We would recommend this to anyone. We loved being by the water and loved kayaking and fishing and crab fishing. We enjoyed being close to the beach. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home.

Car: recommended

Come enjoy the relaxing, quiet, tropical breezes of Paradise Palms. Watch a beautiful sunrise over the water, go fishing off the dock, go kayaking or bike riding to the beach with the included kayaks and bikes.

Hudson Beach is a small relaxing beach, 5 minutes away from the house, where you can lay in the sun or play in the sand. There are also swings for the kids to enjoy. There are many great beach restaurants within a mile – Sam’s Beach Bar, Inn on the Gulf, Hurricane Hanks and Ollie Oysters. There are several stores within a mile of the house, including a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Winn Dixie Grocery, and Walgreen’s Drug. There are several major restaurants, a shopping mall and movie theatres a short drive away. A major hospital, Bayonet Point Medical Center, is less than 5 minutes away.

A little farther south is the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks where you can walk the streets of this quaint Greek town and enjoy their delicious food. Traveling further south are the cities of Tampa, Clearwater & St. Petersburg. Enjoy Busch Gardens, MOSI, or any of the numerous beaches. A little farther north is Weekie Wachee Springs State Park, known for its mermaid shows. Only 1-1/2 hours east of us is Orlando famous for Disney World, Universal Studios & Sea World. If you're a golfer, there are a dozen or more courses in the area including one only a few miles up the road from the house. If you don't have a boat there are a number of nearby marinas that offer boat rentals.
