Review #6149908 A Little Bit of Paradise



My husband and I would recommend this beautifully decorated vacation home to families and couples. Clean, well supplied, lacking nothing. The enclosed, screened in area with pool was so comfortable. Both sun and shade provided. Quite private with the lagoon in the back of property. Close to all amenities. We visited the wonderful aquarium in Tampa. Lots of family style restaurants in area. We even tried pool in the game room. We are making our reservation for 2014.

GREAT VACATION HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 5 weeks at this wonderful vacation home and have already decided to return next winter. This home is beautifully decorated, super clean, has everything to make you feel at home (including a crockpot), and the owners are friendly and gracious. We really felt "at home" during our entire stay. We highly recommend this rental to others looking for a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable time in Florida.

Even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect! For just a little more than what a hotel in the area would have cost, my son and I were able to each have our own room and bathroom, cook our own meals (saved so much money that way), and enjoy a quiet environment. The pool area was gorgeous, we used it multiple times a day (although one word of warning: As Jim will tell you, the "noseeems" get through the screens and bite...do everything and anything you can to avoid getting bitten by those things: Read up on the particular insect repellents that will be effective before you travel). We got eaten alive and I'm still suffering from the bites, I must have gotten at least 100! Anyway, the BBQ was great too; one evening we invited our friends who live in the area over for a pool party, and it was so nice to be able to "play host" (something you wouldn't be able to do at a hotel of course). The house itself was immaculate, and all the amenities were perfect. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen had everything one would need to make a meal. Jim was great, so kind and helpful. I had to contact him a couple of times with random questions, and he was quick to answer my e-mails/calls. We feel so lucky to have found this place, highly recommended! We'll be back next year!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This is a very nice small house located in a quiet neighborhood. The house is spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and has everything you need for a great vacation. It is centrally located no more than 45 minutes from some of Florida's best beaches and natural areas. We especially liked the beach at Sand Key and kayaking on the Weeki Wachee river. Highly recommended!

We just returned from our vacation, staying in this home made our vacation even more enjoyable. The house was very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable, the pool was clean and the neighborhood was nice. It Is just minutes from so many attractions and nice beaches. We will be sure to stay here next time we vacation in this area

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week at this home and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The location of the house on the river was beyond beautiful as you could see the water from the living room and kitchen from the huge picture window. The river and dock were also a fishing spot for our son who caught us fresh fish daily. The pool was warm and beautiful and was continuously used by my family. The corner store was convenient for bait, wine coolers and anything else you may need. There were more than enough towels and linens as well as anything else you could possibly think of to make this "home away from home". We were less than 2 hours away from Universal/Disney and only minutes away from the Tarpon Springs sponge docks. Walmart, Publix and numerous restaurants are conveniently located minutes away. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit.

GUESTS arriving at our Holiday House don't mind if owners Jim and Judy aren't around to greet them personally, Mother Nature is happy to oblige. Outside this 1500 sq. ft. rental on the Anclote River, (five minutes north of Tarpon Springs and 35 minutes from St. Pete and Tampa Airport) seagulls soar overhead and dolphins and manatees cavort in warm waters below. Lizards and butterflies in the gardens surprising visitors with an impromptu appearance on the deck, dock or pool lanai.

Holiday House invites quests to enjoy the tropical surroundings at a deliciously relaxed pace. Judy and Jim have decorated this dream cottage for people desiring an island experience. This colorful dwelling is perched on a wide river curving west to the gulf in an undisturbed nature. The view with sun glistening on the water in the morning is only rivaled by the palm trees and fresh grapefruit juice.

A stained glass door opens to a colorful interior which features a well equipped kitchen, a living
