Description of the Tarpon Springs vacation home rental
If it’s about the location, then this is the perfect location. When you are inside your vacation home you feel like your living outside. Casa Paradiso is located on a private dead-end, abutting a natural wild life preserve on a ½ acre of land. The only sounds you hear are the Gulf of Mexico splashing waves on your 150-foot waterfront. Stop and smell the constant sea breeze. While sitting on your poolside patio or on your private dock you’ll hear the many sounds of nesting birds making their home next to yours, or watch playful dolphins pass by. Now for the perfect location touch, Casa Paradiso will keep you entertained at the end of everyday with its West facing Gulf view of the most spectacular sunsets along the Florida coastline you will ever see. Rent a Kayak and explore the many trails that lead into the wild life refuge only yards away from your dock or explore the out islands . We provide three bikes for you to jump onto over 52 miles of one of the most beautiful bike trails in Pinellas County, an old abandoned Orange Railroad Track winds you through many small quaint villages and wild life parks. Or bring your boat, (there are two davits to accommodate under 20’ ft. boat) and fish some the finest flat-water fishing for Snook, Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Tarpon and many other species of fish. Or just sit on your dock and cast out to catch tonight’s dinner.
Casa Paradiso is located minutes from some of the finest beaches; either by bike or car you don’t have to fight traffic to be sunbathing on the many beaches offered from your home away from home. If it’s site seeing that interests you, you are minutes away from historic Sponge Docks, where you feel like your on an island off the coast of Greece, or visit the artist community of Dunedin only a 10 minute ride from Casa Paradiso, where you can browse the many shops for some of Florida’s finest artist. If you desire the Florida Honky-Tonk of the of Clearwater Beach, it is within 15 miles of Casa Paradiso, where you can enjoy fresh Grouper sandwich right on the many beach front restaurants.. While in Clearwater don’t forget to stop off at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium where you can visit Winter, the movie star Dolphin.( Dolphins Tail)
If you looking for more of the big city life, art museums, restaurants, and city night life, you are just under 40 minutes into Tampa. Don’t forget to jump on the Trolley to Ybor City and experience Cuban life styles, food and cigar making. If you desire the theme parks, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Disney, Lego-Land, MGM, etc. they are between 1 to 2 hours from Casa Paradiso. As to restaurants, either by bike or car there is every type of restaurants imaginable from fresh Gulf shrimp right off the boats, to fresh fish caught that day, to every nationality cuisine to meet your taste with in 10 to 20 minute drive. If you catch your own fish most restaurants will cook it to your liking.
Within 10 to 20 minutes there are over 20 movie theaters for your enjoyment.
At Casa Paradiso we will provide information and maps as where to rent equipment, some of the best restaurants locally, list of charter fishing boats and other services to make your vacation one to remember for years to come.
If you had to pick a location, Casa Paradiso is the perfect location. A Short Term Lease Agreement will be supply and required. Wish you and your family the best vacation choice, and we look forward to meeting you. Ken & Dori

The home and grounds are neat and clean, extremely well kept! There was more than enough room for everyone. If you are looking to rent a beautiful home from an owner who really takes excellent care of their property and cares about the people who want to rent it, this is exactly where you want to stay!! The view is gorgeous! The sunset is beautiful! The pool is saltwater and so refreshing! We had a boat, the fishing was awesome! I caught two trout, that were keepers! We saw dolphins, a manatee, so many fish swimming in the water around us in the boat. The islands are beautiful to go and have a picnic. At the home there is a hammock that you will just love. Just so relaxing. So peaceful. It's nice to sit by the pool and watch the herons out on the water at low tide. We have NO complaints about this home, or the homeowners! They were wonderful renters of the home! We had a wonderful vacation and look forward to returning! Enjoy! :)

We have stayed at a number of properties along the Gulf Coast but this was by far the best one. We chose it from the the listing description and pictures which were exactly what was there when we arrived, it's much better than the pictures show. Everything about Casa Paradiso is good/high quality, comfortable, extremely clean and well maintained. Ken and Dori were very helpful, from our first contact when we booked (at short notice) and throughout our stay. They were there to meet us when we arrived, ensured that we had everything we needed, gave us a guided tour of everything, were at the end of the phone for any queries and provided plenty of info about what was around locally, including suggestions of places to visit and eat, all of which they had tried themselves. We would definately recommend this to family and friends who are looking for a relaxing and restful holiday with all the comforts of home, the area is very peaceful and quiet yet easily accessible to everything. Whilst staying at Casa Paradiso we enjoyed meals at "Rusty Bellies", "Lagerheadz" where you must try the fried ice cream, and "Little Dills", a highlight of the holiday was a meal with Ken and Dori at "The Thai Cafe" where we ate fish caught by Ken and our son, as I am a very fussy eater Ken arranged for them to cook me a plain meal - thank you Ken. We visited the docks, beaches and aquarium locally but didn't have time to see everything as there is so much you can do. We would recommend the Jet ski tour and speedboat trip to see Dolphins at Clearwater both can be booked at the marina. We were busy going out and about but we spent most of the time just relaxing and enjoying the lovely salt water pool and fishing off the dock or watching the amazing sunsets and dolphins that swam past the dock. We had spent a few days in Orlando before we arrived so we were really looking forward to having a rest which is what we got but due to Casa Paradiso and the weather this was much more. Siting on the patio in the morning after a good nights sleep just looking out to sea, the sun shining, what more could you want ! We would also like to thank Ken and Dori for making our stay so enjoyable, taking our son on a fishing trip, which he really enjoyed and for just being so friendly, welcoming, nothing was ever to much trouble and they really do want you to feel at home and have a good holiday. We can't wait to go back.

Already from our first email contact with Ken we had a good feeling about this home. Since we live in the Netherlands, Europe, to us this was very important. The questions we had were answered timely and Ken was very helpful. Since we had to travel a long way it was also very helpful that we had flexibility regarding the arrival time. When we arrived in the evening it was dark and rainy, but the next morning we woke up in paradise with lots of sunshine and a beautiful view. The information and photos on the site reflect the actual situation very well and the house was perfectly clean and well-maintained. The beds were also very comfortable, so we truly had a relaxing holiday. During our stay we visited Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island, both beautiful state parks, we rented a boat (again Ken was very helpful with this) and we went to Disneyworld, but our children (12, 9 and 6 years old) already were perfectly happy with the pool. The salt water was indeed very soft to your skin. The environment and view are really amazing and it was very relaxing to just sit and watch the ocean. We were also lucky to see dolphins passing by. They were so close to the house that we could hear them breathing and we could almost touch them. We had a perfect holiday and wish to thank Ken and Dori for their hospitality and help. We would surely recommend this home and should we have the possibility to visit the USA again we would sure love to come back here!

This house is great! I brought my family and we had a great time. On the first day we saw dolphins. Lots of birds. There was lots to do in the area, or just relax by the pool. I plan on vacationing here again.

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Casa Paradiso! The house, the yard, the pool, and the area were all beautiful and perfectly maintained! The pictures on the site represented the home exactly. The sunsets were amazing! Ken and Dori were terrific hosts as they made sure we had whatever we needed - included information about the area and events that were taking place. We went parasailing in Clearwater which is just a 25 min drive. Busch Gardens in Tampa is about an hour drive and a great place to take kids of all ages. We really enjoyed the biking trail just a short ride from the house. We didn't have enough time to see and do all the local places we wanted but that will just give us another reason to come back again! We highly recommend this home and its owners!

The Internet pictures just do not do Casa Paradiso justice. The home and rooms are beautiful. There is plenty of room to entertain and visit with friends. The view from the living room, out past the pool, and out to the gulf are breathtaking. The grill and patio bring the fun outside. The home, on a quiet cul-de-sac, is professionally landscaped to perfection. The home is in a lovely area and neighborhood, one of the best in the area. One never wants to leave this magical place. We would not hesitate to visit again or suggest this home to friends or family. You will find Dori and Ken extremely friendly and helpful, before, during, and after your visit. You will find you want to visit again and again, just like we want to.

Excellent location with the most spectacular sunsets. We wanted a home to celebrate an early Thanksgiving with our kids, grand children and great granddaughters and we found the perfect home. We were able to cook for them and spend many hours just catching up on the family news. Ken and Dori were very welcoming and everything was perfect. They have everything in the home waiting for you to arrive and begin your stay. Bikes, pool, fully furnished home and even a bottle of wine to welcome you to your vacation home. Grounds are so well maintained with beautiful trees and flower beds. Watching the birds, sunsets, small boats and relaxing added the perfect backdrop for our mini reunion. Tarpon Springs is a wondful location for a vacation for everyone and Casa Paradiso the perfect place to stay. Home was very clean and the description on the site is exactly what you will find when you arrive. We visit Tarpon Springs often to be with our family and having a home to share with them so I could cook for them again made a great trip even better. Thanks ken and Dori for providing such a beautiful home.

Casa Paradiso, is definitely appropriately named! What an incredible view! The sunsets are amazing! You couldn't ask for a better location! Ken and Dori are awesome hosts! They are VERY helpful with EVERYTHING! Mark and I have rented lots of homes/condos over the years and they were the best! Easy to reach and thoughtful in answering any questions. Besides that, they have thought of EVERYTHING you might need/want~down to every detail! Other rentals have only a few items to help you "get by" but their home has more than you could ever need. Besides linens, kitchen pots, pans, glassware, etc, they also provide bikes, floats, etc. The list goes on and on. The house was VERY clean and everything was in perfect working order. You can't go wrong with this home and it's wonderful hosts! The location is great as well. Lots of fun restaurants, shops and activities in the area. I would recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a fabulous view, great house and awesome owners! Thank you so much Ken and Dori! We hope to visit you again soon! Mark and Lynn

Thank you Ken and Dori for an impeccably maintained property to base our family Gulf Coast vacation week! Location, location, location!!! Fishing off the dock, sting ray and crab watching. Birds galore! Several days of our week we relaxed by the pool in the most beautiful of settings. We also visited Busch Gardens, The Florida Aquarium in Tampa, the local sponge docks, Sunset and Fred Howard beach, Honeymoon Island and thoroughly enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with the manitees in Crystal River through River Ventures (highly recommended). We would very much like to visit this slice of paradise again!
