Our Vacation Rental is located in the seafaring community of Tarpon Springs, on Florida's West Coast. We are just north of Tampa and Clearwater.

Easy walking distance to the Sponge Docks and Greek Village, downtown Tarpon Springs and Spring Bayou. The Saint Michael House is a charming, venerable cottage built by Greek settlers from the Mediterraean Islands. It has handpainted floors, wide front porch, and radiates comfort and relaxation. Guests have found it a wonderful place to heal, let go of stress and problems. The house has had a happy history, and shares that energy with our guests.

About the area

Our rental is located in the most historic neighborhood of Tarpon Springs. It was the area first settled in the 1800’s around the abundant fresh water of Spring Bayou. The bayou is home to manatee, dolphin and other wildlife. Craig Park is located next to the bayou. It has a small museum, tennis courts, a public boat ramp and many benches set beneath massive oak trees. A sea wall surrounds the part of the bayou closest to town and this is a favorite of people taking their morning or evening walk. Kayaks are available for rental from local dealers. Bicycles can be rented in town and power boats can be provided by Marinas located along the Anclote River near the Sponge Docks.
