Charming and homy atmosphere,

We were warmly greeted, even I. The rain, and made to feel welcome. Barbara gave us directions to the local areas to visit and provided a map. The vintage pieces in the rooms were part of the ambiance of the inn. There was a lovely little garden area and a cat curled up on the porch. The food was really good too. French toast cooked to perfection with fresh fruit and maple syrup! The next morning was a wonderful quiche served with homemade potatoes and fresh strawberries. Again, during breakfast we were cared for and she made sure special dietary requests were made.. We would stay there again without hesitation..

Lucky find

After thinking we weren't going to find a nice place for a reasonable price , this lovely spot was revealed online. The location was away from the noise and clutter but close to the attractions and conveniences. The hostess was accommodating, and her breakfasts were excellent. Even the cats were charming.

Barb and Larry were exceptional hosts. My husband and I and our small dog spent one month in the cottage behind the main house. Barbara is a caring and wonderful B&B hostess. We felt at home from the first day. She went above and beyond expectations in meeting our needs. The small fenced-in courtyard was good for our small dog.

Friendly, Quaint and close to the Spong Docks

The people at Ashley's were very nice. The space was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good. The location was right for us; close to the Sponge Docks and highway 19 yet tucked away on a small quiet street. Tarpon Springs is an older Greek town and most buildings, including Ashley's, are antiquated to some degree. Ashley’s is a good place to stay for those who enjoy a quaint environment. We had a good time and we felt right at home.

Simple comfort!

This little bungalow is a great value...simple and modest, but clean and comfortable. Tarpon Springs, with it's Greek heritage, is charming and different than any other Florida beach town. The house is very close to everything. The kitchen was missing a few basic things like cutting boards, cookie sheets, etc., but overall, we had a wonderful experience. We'll never rent a hotel room again.

Owner's reply:

Thank you so very much. I have added cutting board and cookie sheets. Thanks again

"How sweet it is" 3/7/2009


Stayed On: 2/2009

I was looking for someplace to stay for my son's wedding festivities-needless to say he decided to get married in "prime time" in FLorida so I was really in need of a place to stay that I could afford. Luckily, I happened on Victorian Haven; Barbara was soooo good to us-she is a great cook and marvelous hostess and the downstairs suite was just absolutely perfect. Within walking distance to nearly everything in Tarpon Springs, including the winery at the end of the block, this is such an ideal place to stay, even if you are not into antiques. I can't sing the praises of this place enough. We will be going back again and again. Bev and Scott Keidel

"Best B&B in Tarpn Springs" 11/17/2008


Stayed On: 11/2008

Our stay at Ashley's Victorian Haven was the best. The location was perfect for all activities and the Innkeepers were amazing, fun and could not do enough to make out stay fabulous. I will be returning, no doubt.

The breakfast was awesome!" 10/11/2008


Stayed On: 9/2008

My husband and I decided to stay at a bed and breakfast, for the first time, to celebrate our 29th anniversary. After reading the reviews posted, we chose Ashley's Victorian Haven although we were a little bit hesitant when we saw how affordable it was to stay there. We were so relieved to arrive and find the house quaint, very clean, attractively decorated and quite comfortable. Barbara was so hospitable and accommodating and we especially enjoyed the fabulous breakfast she provided that topped off our wonderful date

Please go to BedandBreakfast to read all my reveiws. Thank you.

"Worth it !" 9/29/2009
Stayed On: 9/2008
As a quick get-away from stress, the weekend spent here was just what I needed. Rooms were immaculate, quiet setting, nearby to town, great restaurants & stores, most friendly owners at the B & B, and it was so pleasant to wake up to a full breakfast that I didn't have to cook. Like I said, it's definitely worth the trip

A lovely B&B. Delightful hostess. So generous in sharing her antiques with us. Lovely breakfast -- we ate on Limoges China! Wold definitely return
Stayed On: 7/2009
Hidden Gem - Ashley's is tucked away on a very quiet street just a few blocks from the sponge docks and downtown areas. Barb is a wonderful hostess, down to earth and makes breakfasts that keep up with many boutique B&B's. We asked for a repeat of the killer French toast. Only two rooms but the service level is still typical of 3-5 room properties. Very reasonable. If you enjoy a B&B set in an oder Victorian house, end your search here. We'll be back next time we visit the area. Stayed in the downstairs room which had plenty of space - closet, sofa, make-up table, and oversized bath with separate tub and shower. Living/dining room loaded with antiques are right outside and the kitchen has plenty of space for working with your leftovers, including a full-size refrigerator/freezer and silverware/dishes. Bottled water was provided to help us beat the July heat. Barb and her husband have their own cottage in the back. Couples or families traveling together can rent both rooms and have total privacy. We toured the beaches each day and sponge docks each night. The location makes it convenient to get around without touching the huge highways that surround the area. The city's performing arts center next door is another evening option. Tarpon Springs has very few B&B's, but this one is definitely a winner.
Stayed On: 3/2009
We had the pleasure of a wonderful stay at Ashley's in March 2009. The only word that can describe our opinion of this Bed & Breakfast is âFANTASTICâ. The antiques are intriguing - we loved exploring the home and viewing all the unique pieces. The front porch swing is a great place to kick back at the end of the day. The home was extremely clean and comfortable. The hospitality is second to none!!! Barbara & Larry did an incredible job making us feel âat homeâ, giving us plenty of privacy and serving up a delicious breakfast. We will definitely stay there again. Nick & Susan
Please not enough room for all reviews, please go to bedandbreakfast and tripadvisor for all reveiws. Thank you
Ashley's offers a peaceful retreat within walking distance of the sponge docks and historic Victorian area of Tarpon Springs. Barbara is the perfect hostess: sociable and welcoming, but not overbearing, and the breakfasts are fantastic!
