Description of the Tarpon Springs vacation home rental
Imagine spending your winter in Florida in this beautiful home at this great rate!! Six month rentals available.

This beautiful waterfront pool home in Tarpon Springs looks out on a private island and has its own sandbar at low tide! Whether you want to fish, boat, relax in the jacuzzi or private pool or just lounge on the patio, this gorgeous home has it all. The home has a stunning water view from nearly every room, and is beautifully decorated in tropical theme. Pool service is included for pristine swimming, and the jacuzzi provides a soothing waterfall into main pool.

The great room/kitchen has new, marbled ceramic tile, stainless appliances, comfy furniture and flat screen tv with DVD movies, and stereo with plenty of good CD's. Counter top bar is perfect for chatting over a cup of coffee or a quick snack. You will find kitchen supplies for every need from Cuisinart ice cream maker to coffee pot. No need to bring anything but your groceries! Barbeque grill outside comes with plenty of gas and a table for outdoor dining or a sunset frozen drink. If you prefer more formal meals, a formal dining room inside allows seating for 8, tiled in the same marbled ceramic.

The home has four lovely bedrooms: a master suite downstairs with bay window waterfront view and sliding door to the patio. There is a canopied queen bed and flat screen tv providing a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. The master bath is classy with his and her sinks, a custom frameless glass shower, and a luxurious jacuzzi tub. You will find plenty of towels and linens and soft comforters and pillows throughout the home.

The other three bedrooms are upstairs: a lovely guest room with queen bed and balcony water view. a cheery guest room with twin beds and vibrant Hawaiian theme, and a lofted room with a sleeper sofa bunk for three. All three bedrooms open onto a media/library area with desk, games, books, and a tv with kids' movies. Internet connection is available and this is a perfect area for some computer work.

There is a third full bath located downstairs near the family room and convenient for pool access. You will find a closet of pool supplies, rafts, sunscreen in case you forget yours, and other handy pool supplies and toys.

The backyard is large and roomy with plenty of room for the kids to run around, and there is a slope down to the water where you can launch the canoe. Paddles and life jackets are included, as is cooler, fishing pole and tackle box. Just bring your bait and beach towels!

Manatee sightings and especially dolphin sightings are a guarantee, and much other wildlife abounds just out your backdoor. The canoe is perfect for exploring islands and mangrove areas just behind the home.

An indoor gas fireplace for infrequent cool weather, and outdoor fire ring for chilly evenings and roasting marshmallows make this home perfect for any weather or occasion.
Area Information
This fabulous home is located adjacent to the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, where you can enjoy Greek culture as if you were in Greece itself. Numerous Greek and seafood restaurants with outdoor seating are within biking distance, and you will find Greek and sea treasures aplenty in the fabulous Greek shopping district. Take in an aquarium show or watch some Greek dancing in the street while enjoying a Greek pastry from one of the numerous homemade bakeries. Head out to Anclote Island to view the lighthouse or just spend the day on a secluded, pristine island. Take a tour on the local sightseeing boat or charter one of your own.

The city of Tarpon Springs also boasts great antique shopping in its historic district just blocks away, and has its own Tavern with local craft beers. Winery, spa, monthly beach concerts, and biking the Pinellas Trail round out some of the fun things to do all within two to three miles. Three beaches in town, Sunset, Fred Howard Park and Anclote Park, give beach goers different options depending on the preference for seclusion or facilities.

There is a golf course in town, with the famous Innisbrook Golf Course just a few miles away. The home is also located one and one half hours from the Disney Resort area, and Tampa's Busch Gardens is about 45 minutes away. You will find Tarpon Springs to be a hidden treasure on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and once you experience the warm and friendly atmosphere of this fishing town, we are sure you will be back!

Family Vacation

October 4, 2016

Our family of 9 (8 adults and a one year old) spent a vacation week at the Tarpon Springs home and had a great time. The house is very clean and spacious, and is located in a beautiful quaint, quiet neighborhood. The master suite downstairs was very comfortable, with a very nice spacious bathroom. We spent nearly every day on the patio, in the beautiful pool, heated Jacuzzi, and grilling dinner. The view is very nice, just across the water from a marina. It is very relaxing just to watch all the boats, the sunrises, and beautiful sunsets. The house is about 40 or so minutes from beautiful Clearwater beach, where we spent a couple afternoons. Though we only ate a couple meals out, Rusty Bellies was a great choice for lunch! Walmart and Publix are only a few miles away, making it easy to run out to purchase needed groceries, etc. The owner, Beckie, is quick to respond to any questions, as is Fran, the property manager. I gave a 4-star rating, only because the mattresses upstairs were a little uncomfortable for adults. If you’re traveling with young children or teens, it’s probably fine. I would recommend this home for a family vacay!

Beckie and Rich Mason

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Donna, for a lovely review. We do take our guest comments seriously and appreciate your update on the mattresses so we can take care of them! Come see us again and thanks for taking good care of our home. Beckie

Oasis on the River

July 13, 2016

I stayed at this house with my family over the 4th of July Holiday. The house was an ideal option for my family, as it accommodated our family of 5 perfectly with room to spare. Having a private pool, hot tub, kitchen, family room, and 4 bedrooms was so much of a better option then staying at a hotel. It was also a more affordable option for us as a family to all stay comfortably in one place. The canoe was a great add on to have and be able to use on the river at no additional cost. ( you can rent them at the local beaches) I anchored my pontoon boat right off the back yard which made it much easier to access and cheaper than renting a slip at the Marina. The house is located directly across the river from the historic sponge docks of Tarpon Springs which is also a nice perk having all of those dining and shopping options so close. If we were at the house and not out exploring, the kids were in the pool constantly. We used the BBQ grill on the back pool deck quite a bit and was nice to have that option. There is also a fire pit in the back yard, but being summer in Florida, we didn't use it. If you have a family and are looking to travel to this part of Florida with your family, its a great affordable option. The owners are super friendly and quick to answer any Questions or Concerns. Fran who was the property manager was also very friendly and helpful. The reason I gave this property 4 stars and the only issue I have with this home is the queen mattress in the upstairs bedroom wasn't very comfortable and may be a bit dated. However, I would recommend this house to friends and family and would stay here again myself if traveling back to Tarpon Springs. ***Great Location*** Great Price*** Owners are very Easy to Communicate with*** I highly Recommend this Vacation Home!!! ~ Dave R.

Thank you, Dave, for the informative and helpful review. We appreciate solid guest feedback. Prior to your arrival we purchased a new family room sectional and patio loungers. That mattress is next on the list!! Come see us again. Blessings, Beckie

We searched for a rental home that was close to attractions, but off the beaten path a little. This home was a hidden gem. The property is on the water. The pool has attractive tile work and is well maintained. The patio and fire pit area accommodates many people. We had 6 adults and 3 children. We made S'mores, grilled, and ate almost every meal outdoors. There is a canoe with paddles and life vests as well! They thought of the kids too, as there are pool toys, movies, games and books. Local attractions that we enjoyed were the Sponge Docks, Clearwater Aquarium, Honeymoon Island, A.L. Anderson Park and Captain Memo's Pirate Cruise. I highly recommend this home if you are looking for a gulf vacation. The home sits in quiet, private neighborhood and the owners were extremely friendly, as well as helpful.

Thank you, Tara. It is great to get feedback on what is enjoyed at our home. Thank you so much and come see us again!! Beckie

This home has a great location if you are visiting Tarpon Springs. We stayed at 3 different homes in Florida during the month of May and this was by far the best with a nice pool, great view and a canoe which allowed you to explore the river. This is a home that someone use to live in and all the amenities are there to make you comfortable. While there we rented a pontoon for the day went out to the inter coastal island and had a great day. We spent time in the pool, and enjoyed the Greek food in the city. Would recommend for a family and friends. Only complaint was the squeeky mattress upstairs where our companions continued to wake each other with every turn.

Thank you, John, for a lovely review and for taking good care of our home. We take our guests comments seriously and a new mattress will be delivered in June. Come see us again!! Beckie

We just returned from a quick three day vacation in this property. We had a wonderful time. The house had everything we needed except beach towels (which we knew in advance). Beckie was great to deal with, and even allowed an early check in since our plane got in so early. We had a maintenance issue the day we got there, and handyman Lee came first thing to fix it. The house was clean, plenty of linens, beds were comfortable. Everything you needed in the kitchen. Plenty of seating outside. Pool and hot tub are great, as is the view. Plenty of wine glasses, which we put to good use! This is not a brand new, modern-stylings type of beach house. It is very comfortable and homey and lived in, which we loved. The only thing we would have liked that wasn't there would be reclining furniture in the living area as we are a TV viewing type of family. Thank you Beckie for helping fit us in on our schedule.

We spent two over the Christmas holidays...had a fantastic time. There's nothing negative, I can say about this beautiful home. Very spacious on the inside to a beautiful backyard overlooking the river and Tarpon Springs Docks. From the master bedroom you wake up to the sunrise. Sitting out back you can watch the sunset. My daughters were tanning one afternoon. They were able to watch a pod of dolphins coming down the river towards the marina. What a beautiful site. Thank you Becky for everything. Definitely would consider your home in the future.

Beckie and Rich Mason

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Lisa. What a kind and flattering review! And thank you for taking such good care of our home. I really appreciated our chats from someone as yourself who has rented many homes. Please come stay with us again. Blessings to you all. Beckie

We had a really good time while at this home. It is in a great location near everything you need and in a very nice neighborhood. Plus Belle Harbour Marina is about 1/3 mile away where we rented a boat to tour some of the islands not too far off. Although rain interfered with some of our plans, we still enjoyed the pool and everyone really enjoyed fishing in the bayou at the back of the house. The kids had lots of fun with the games during the rainy times, and it wasn't too far to go out to eat or shop for cooking at home. All in all (except for the rain), a very nice vacation!

Thanks, Sue. We loved having you! Come again.

Thanks so much to Beckie (owner) for her gracious hospitality. This home worked out perfectly for us. Plenty of room inside and out for everyone to be comfortable and to mix and mingle. The home and beautiful grounds are very private and located in a lovely area. The pool and patio and kitchen, of course, is where we spent a lot of our time. Love that pool, especially since it was well in to the 90's when we were there! Next time we will come in the winter. Still, we loved the area. The location is close to so many places to visit. There was plenty to do for all ages. Fran (local manager) was so attentive and quick to respond to anything we contacted her about. Thanks to both Beckie and Fran for doing everything they could to make sure we had a good visit. And, we really did have a great visit.

Thank you, Terry, for taking great care of our home. We are glad you had such a good time and look forward to serving you again!!

My husband and I celebrated Christmas here with our 2 adult sons and their wives. There was plenty of space for us all to get together to play board games in the dining room as well as have our privacy at night. It was not very warm or sunny the week we were there, but we still spent a lot of time enjoying the warm pool and specially the heated spa. The immediate neighborhood is very quiet, but Tarpon Springs is within walking distance and offers interesting shops and restaurants. All in all, it was a very enjoyable week and we may be back.

We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful Tarpon Springs home. Our days were spent enjoying the pool and the water behind the house. We fished, canoed, swam and went into town most nights for dinner. Our family lives in Kansas and we all LOVE seafood. (which we don't get very often) Rusty Bellies is visible from the house - and is at the end of the main road near the sponge docks. Its the best seafood in the area. Most everything is caught on their own boats. We ate there twice for dinner and came back a third time for the key lime pie made by the owners mother. Its a must "eat" if in Tarpon. Each day on the canoe was exciting. One day my daughter and husband were on the canoe and a manatee swam up to the canoe and all the way to the surface to check them out. It was huge! The same afternoon while I canoed with my husband a dolphin was swimming down the river (which we saw 3 times during our stay) and I started splashing the water to see if he would come close. The dolphin did - and breached in the water about 12 feet from our canoe. The dolphin jumped at least 3 times. We were amazed at the beauty of it all. We bought Florida fishing licenses and then bought some frozen squid and a fishing pole at the bait shop down the street. I fished all 3 days of my fishing license and two days caught fish. ( I left the new pole at the house for any new guest) I caught catfish. 1 22in 1 17in. Most times on the canoe we saw jelly fish and sting rays. When the tide gets low you can walk way out into the river and just fish from shore. The sunsets are great. The pool is fantastic. The house was nice. We spent time at Busch Gardens one day, went to Honeymoon Island state park, attempted to go off shore fishing but couldn't due to weather, drove to Tampa International mall for a day of shopping, putt putt at Congo Golf in New Port Richey..... I can't say enough about how relaxing our time was. It really did feel like a home away from home. We loved the local Greek food as well. If you are looking for a non-touristy spot with local fresh food and a great house to just relax and enjoy Florida like a Floridian, then this is the place for you. I'd love to come back sometime to this Tarpon home. I already feel like its a part of my family due to the amazing memories we made.

Beckie and Rich Mason

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Chris. We loved having you and really appreciate your wonderful comments--not to mention the great care you took of our home. When we hear how much people enjoyed themselves, that makes renting our home even better!! Come stay with us again! Blessings, Beckie
