Description of the Tarpon Springs vacation home rental
This waterfront home with your own private pool is great for families, couples or large enough for a gathering of friends. You can fish out your back door, or take out the kayaks provided with your stay. The home is located in a private island community on the Anclote River minutes from the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks. Several beaches are close by, as are plenty of great restaurants, sightseeing attractions and shopping venues. The open water of the Gulf of Mexico is just minutes by boat.

The home is a beautifully decorated 2,300 sq ft 3 bedroom, 3 full bathroom two-story with a loft that provides sleeping for a total of 9 guests. Linens are of high quality and the pool bath is stocked with pool towels. There are ceiling fans in every room. The master suit has a king-size bed, flat screen tv and a large garden tub with a newly remodeled granite bathroom. The other bedrooms have queen beds, and the loft has a pyramid bed with a twin on the top and a full on the bottom and has its own tv making it great for teens or kids. Furnishings and decorations are of vibrant tropical colors, and the home is immaculately maintained by professional housekeeping

There is vision fitness elliptical trainer with a tv overlooking the pool area.

The back of the home opens up to the water and sparkling pool area with a newly constructed 2 level spacious deck, perfect for cocktail hour or outdoor dining. The main living area is a combined great room, granite and stainless kitchen, and bar. There is a big flat screen TV and leather seating in the family room. The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking necessities and there is a grill right out the back door on the deck. Beautiful office area overlooking the pool and canal with internet throughout the house.

Nature enthusiasts will appreciate that there are no backyard neighbors and wildlife abounds. Dolphins and manatees frequent the canal, and eagles osprey and often sighted. Fishing can be done from the seawall and poles and bait can be purchased just down the road at The Bait Bucket. Kayaks provided with the rental are perfect for exploring the inland waterways filled with mangroves and abundant wildlife.

Please note the pool is not surrounded by child-proof fencing. Non-swimmers and young children should be closely monitored.

We can make any ocassion even more special by providing a cake, champagne, chocolates and more. Just ask us!


Area Information
Tarpon Springs is a unique tourist location on the west coast of Florida. Without large hotels or motels, the area remains unspoiled and retains its rich personality as the largest Greek community outside of Greece. Street festivals, Greek food, gift shops and music abound. Visitors will find great shopping, authentic foods and items from Greece, beaching, parks, charter boats and private boat rental, great fishing and more, in a more laid-back manner than busier places in Florida. History enthusiastics will enjoy the antique district and restored historical buildings, providing a venue for restaurants, a winery, art galleries and tavern on original red-bricked streets. Original Victorian homes line the many bayous around town, and much can be viewed by foot or on the Tarpon Trolley.

Several sight-seeing boats provide excursions of the river and gulf. The scenic Pinellas Trail (a 30 mile path that runs from Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg) is great for walking, jogging, running, biking, and rollerblading. Rental gear can be leased downtown at Tarpon Tom's, from scooters to kayaks. Fishing gear and bait can be purchased from the Bait Bucket, just a 1/2 mile from the home.

Tarpon is home to many churches of many denominations, including the beautiful St. Nicholas Orthodox church that hosts the annual Ephiphay dive for the cross each January.

Well worth the stay!

September 2, 2014

This is a pretty home in an upscale, safe, quiet & friendly neighborhood, just off Alt 19 which has easy access to gulf beaches and shopping on 19. The view from the backyard, is private and amazing! The home is well stocked with many essentials & the BBQ which is included in the price is a real plus! The pool is solar heated and warm, great for a swim anytime! All beds are comfy even the loft beds! The house was very comfortable for our family of 5 and it is very evident that many people have used the home and spent wonderful vacations in it over the years. Diane (owner) is very nice to deal with and will respond to you right away! Highlights in the area for us were: Hella's Bakery (everything is yummy and better than any bakery in NY) and the Fish Store at the Sponge Docks which is loaded with many fresh fish varieties at great prices. There is an organic grocery store called Nature's Food Patch in Clearwater, Strachan's Homemade Ice Cream in Palm Harbor is worth going off any diet for!! We love the white sands of Clearwater beach which is an easy 1/2 hour drive away and it has some great restaurants and shopping on the strip. The International Plaza in Tampa also has great shopping and at any Dillards you can get a great bargain and something very different (compared to our NY stores)! Parking at Clearwater Beach runs $2.50-$1.50 an hour. Fred Howard Park charges $5 for all day parking and Madeira Beach is around $1 an hour for parking. John's Pass Boardwalk has some cute shops; a little more upscale than the Sponge Docks while St. Armand's Circle is the nicest outdoor strip mall on the beach that we have been to so far. For 25 years we have been vacationing in Tarpon Springs and find new things to do every time we return. My husband even got his tattoo redone at Cherry Bomb Tattoos by Evan Q, who is an amazing artist. Universal Studios isn't that far and has some amazing rides and the new Harry Potter exhibit is amazing. We hope to return again!

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your review Portia, sounds like you got a lot of sight seeing in on your vacation. Tarpon Springs is a perfect vacation location, quiet Greek community and an easy drive to almost everything Florida has to offer. Our home is the perfect quiet place to return after a fun day on the go!

Very nice

May 18, 2014

We had a very relaxing family vacation. Close enough to Tampa to go to Busch Gardens, St Pete to watch the Ray and to all of the best beaches but far enough away from the bar scene to enjoy quiet nights on the deck. House was very nice and felt like home from the moment we walked in the door!

Great location Not so much the set up

January 5, 2014

Great house for a family for size--3 bedrooms + a bunk in an open loft. Great location in delightful Tarpon Springs-- easy in/out and around tourism interests in the area. The house, however, needs to be cleared of owner's belongings and presence. An in-home office is inappropriate to vacation renters and the house lacks a dining room table for comfortable meal sitting. Pool and deck are lovely but pool should be heated. The owners need to give a bit more thought to accommodating vacationers and their needs.

Diane and Scott Underwood

Owner's reply:

I am sorry this guest was not 100% satisfied. This is the first time I have had a complaint about personal items. Most guests are delighted that they are able to use them. The home office has come in very handy for our internet savvy guests or those needing to do some work while on vacation. This is a home, not a hotel, and we cannot please everyone. Just the same, Ruth, we enjoyed having you stay with us and hope you find something that better suits your needs the next time!! Blessings!

Stayed at this house with a group of friends from around the world for a wedding. There were eight of us in all. The accommodations were superb and roomy. Beckie was extremely helpful and available for any assistance we needed . We would not think twice about renting this home again and to top it all off we saw dolphins swimming in the canal behind the house really cool

Diane and Scott Underwood

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Tennesee. It was a pleasure serving you and your guests and we look forward to doing it again! Beckie

This house is a must for anyone who wants to be on the water and close to the sponge docks. The house itself was beautifully decorated, very open. The master bed was very comfortable as were all the others. The house is in a very nice cul de sac with only a few houses. Very quite neighborhood. We will be back to rent it next year.
