We have stayed at Tarpon Tree House twice within the last 6 months which, in itself, says a lot. We are discerning holidaymakers and for the last few years have stayed in beachfront properties on Anna Maria. We were surprised at just how much we love Tarpon Tree House. The location at the North end of the island is excellent - wonderfully quiet and yet within walking distance of a few shops and restaurants. It is also within easy walking distance of the beach and both the Rod and Reel and City Pier. The house itself is spotlessly clean and both luxurious and comfortable with lots of "extras" and the outside space is something else! The garden is very cleverly secluded, with lots of separate areas for relaxing and watching the wildlife. You can choose from various conventional garden seats, a sturdy bench or rocking chairs overlooking the water or even a hammock! This truly is a blissful, special place where we felt we could really relax and get away from our busy daily lives. Highly recommended. We will be back!
