We are an English family who chose this part of Florida,over all the rest that we traveled to over the years.
To live and work here is like being on vacation all year!
Gaye purchased this house in 1995
Why Gaye chose Palm Harbor
We fell in love with this area in the 80's. It is so perfect for everybody in the family to enjoy, having something for all age groups.
The beaches are the best you can get, the number one voted beach in the whole of the USA in Caladesi island is just 5 minutes drive away.
A short walk takes you to our little Downtown area. The Jolly Trolly stops close by, taking you south to Clearwater and Dunedin and north to Tarpon Springs
What makes this house unique
We started to look for a vacation home along the Gulf coast nearly 20 years ago and had very tough search criteria.
We wanted the perfect location to suit every bodies needs, plus a lot more.
Not just for families or couples, but for everybody wanting that perfect vacation.
In finding this beautiful quaint little town, we found it.
After 20 years and buying another 3 homes, all within walking distance of each other.
We never thought about buying else where, we had found the perfect location.
The area is friendly, safe to walk at night and central to everything
Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed our stay but would be hesitant to consider a repeat visit unless the $30.00 which has been stopped from our security deposit,due to us braking an item in the house and leaving extra cleaning in the house was returned to us.
Until then I have to give this a negative
