PALM HARBOR; GROUND LEVEL 2 BEDROOM VILLA, 1 MILE TO SPONAUGLE WELLNESS CENTER

Palm Harbor Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Ground Floor Villa

This beautiful Florida vacation villa rental is Decorated and stocked for your comfort and pleasure. Located 2 1/2 miles from the beach, and 1 mile to Sponaugle Wellness Center. Situated within a quiet villa community with lush green grass and trees, but close enough to all the eating, drinking, and shopping experiences you could ever imagine. This lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath, ground floor villa has a front screened in patio and a rear Glassed in sunroom that then leads to a 10x11' outdoor ground level concrete patio. There are 2 beautiful pools within the community that both take 4 min. to walk to and all the conveniences you could ask for.

The home has a 26 inch TV, full size washer and dryer, and a single size role away bed for that extra guest that spends the night. You are near gulf beaches, public golf courses, a 20 AMC movie theater, great restaurants, shopping malls, Busch Gardens and it's only a 90 minute trip to Disney and a 20 minute ride to Tampa airport.

Florida Beaches: The beaches along the Sun Coast of Florida are some of the safest and nicest in the world. These include the following: 1. Clearwater Beach 2. Anclote Key 3. Fred Howard Park 4. Honeymoon Island 5. Caladesi Island 6. Treasure Island 7. St Pete Beach 8. Fort De Soto Park === The string of beaches from Anclote Key in the north to Fort De Soto in the South covers 36 miles and has some of the best beaches in the United States, including Hawaii. These beaches range from isolated, undeveloped tropical islands accessible only by boat (Anclote Key, Caladesi Island) to packed tourist beaches with all the souvenir shops, grouper sandwich shops and nightclubs. The people that rank beaches, place Caladesi Island State Park, Anclote Key State Park, and Fort De Soto park in the top ten beaches in the United States, with most of the other top ten beaches being in Hawaii.

Clearwater Beach is the most famous of the beaches that are on the barrier islands. On an island all its own, Clearwater Beach is the major 'tourist beach' on the Fl Sun Coast. Every type of beach oriented activity can be found here. There are many great grouper sandwich shop where you can enjoy lunch relax with a cool beverage. With its many shops and miles of beach, the entire family can have fun here. The gentle slope of the beaches into the water & the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico make all the beaches on the Florida Sun Coast very different from the Atlantic ocean beaches on the east coast of Florida where large waves crash onto the beach. Anclote Key State Preserve, more than 1,000 years ago, this island was pushed up from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico to rest on a limestone platform. It is still slowly growing today & its size has increased by more than 25% since 1956. This 4 mile long island is one of the few truly unspoiled and undeveloped islands left along the FL Coast

Lighthouse: Anclote Lighthouse, the abandoned lighthouse on the southern end of this remote island adds to the islands fragile beauty and character. It was built in the 1880's and served almost 100 years to protect the mariners in the Gulf of Mexico. With the advent of more modern navigational tools such as the Long Range Navigation System (LORAN) and later the Global Position System (GPS) it became obsolete. It was decommissioned in 1984 and for the last 16 years has been abandoned. Fred Howard Park was first opened in 1966 and is located at the end of a mile long causeway west of Florida Ave. in Tarpon Springs, this is a beautiful beach area. The swimming and sunbathing is excellent. The facilities include very nice sheltered picnic areas, playgrounds for the kids, restrooms, BBQ grills and beach showers. Bring your fishing poles and your wind surfers. This is a very popular park with the local Floridians and over 2 million people visit the park annually.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed at this Villa for the past two years and look forward to staying there again in 2013. It was exactly as adveritsed and then some. It was very clean with all appliances in working order and fully furnished with all that is required to feel at home. The owners representative lives in the community and is available and proved to be of help with knowledge of the area. We have been going to Florida for over thirty years and find this area to be the most enjoyable. We are active seniors and enjoy the beaches in the area including Clearwater and our favorites at Indian Shores. Fishing is great and there are many activities within a 1/2 hour to 45-minute drive: racetrack, casino, theatre, museums and local craft shows. It is very close to all major stores and restaurants, for variou budgets. The owner Don is a pleasure to work with and, for the price, has an exceptional Villa.

Owner's Response: It's customers like these that make our villa business a great success. As Ed has indicated, Cleanliness and attention to detail is what we take most pride in and we find our customers to appreciate it the most. It's our female customers that recognize these things and appreciate it.
Very important note: Our property manager is our key success when catering to the needs of our customers. He to is a senior and has been living in florida for the past 30 yrs. He knows all the best places to dine, golf, shop and find that quiet beach location. Just ask. The kind words are greatly appreciated and we look forward to serving many more great people in the future. Thanks

Don

NICE, CLEAN AND SAFE!

  • 4 of 5
Nice quiet location, very clean, felt very safe there. Don was very helpful when we had to call him when we arrived at 4 a.m. and were not sure if we were at the right place. Pool was beautiful. would definately be great for a long stay, as we were only there for 3 and 1/2 (LOL) nights. (Plane was delayed) Nice cozy place. For the things we had planned the location was a little tough to get to. Wal-Mart just down the street was nice. Had everything you needed, except remember to bring toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates if needed. Over all it was a nice placeto stay with my kids, better than a hotel.

WORTH EVERY PENNY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were visiting friends in Florida and stayed at this villa for 2 weeks in December. It was very very clean. It was important for my wife to find a place that was bright and sunny and we found that. The pics on the web site are exactly what we found. Don the owner offered us great service from the time we signed his rental agreement to the day we departed. The location is very conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, 2 beaches and even a Wal-Mart. Surprising that this community is so centrally located but still a quiet place to stay and play. We would encourage anyone to stay here compared to a hotel. The cost is minimal compared to a hotel and you get so much more. We hope this review offers confidence for someone else that is looking for a great place to stay.

The Greek heritage of this area makes it truly unique in the entire United States. The Greeks first settled this area around the turn of the century and started the Sponge Diving Industry. This is the only place in the US where sponge diving is actively pursued as an industry. The colorful traditions and atmosphere introduced to this area by the Greek sponge divers has continued today with sponge auctions, sponge diving exhibitions, and the largest Epiphany celebration in the United States. Visitors can enjoy the authentic Greek food in the more than 20 restaurants, shop in the sponge and souvenir stores, and board cruise boats for half day or day trips for casino gambling or fishing. The Sponge Docks are listed in the National Historic Districts register. Along with the sponge docks are more than 140 art gallery/studios, antique shops, boutiques and restaurants. There is also a Performing Arts Center and Cultural Center which host several annual events and festivals.

Golf: Anclote Activities: The main activities on the island are swimming in the shallow Gulf waters that are as warm as a bathtub in the summers. The gradual slope of the beaches makes it easy for oldsters as well as youngsters to enjoy the clear warm waters, which are said by some to provide solstice for the soul as well as the body. Shelling is also a favorite activity. Several species of shells can be collected. Sand dollars can also be found by digging your toes into the sand in about 2 or 3 feet of water and feeling the sand dollars under the surface of the sand. The sand dollars vary in size from 1 to 6 inches across. Tarpon Springs is hidden just north of Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs is one of the oldest cities on the Florida West Coast.
