Relax Relax Relax...sit on the porch and watch the world pass. My family & I have created a sweet & memorable home for our guests. After days spent at the beach or golf course, fishing, boating, hiking or antiquing among other pursuits you will welcome the return to our lovingly restored turn of the century cottage.
Abundant space (2400 sq ft) with plenty of privacy also..the cottage is a single level, free standing private home with up to date amenities and plenty of parking. Walk 2 blocks to beautiful Spring Bayou with its flower beds, sea walled promenade and gallery of Victorian homes. Watch dolphins and manatee in the quiet bayou or drop your fishing line into the quiet water and try your luck. A short 15 minute walk takes you to the historic Sponge Docks area with its working waterfront, Greek restaurants and cafes.
There are several excursion boats to consider and quaint shops to browse in...including a 'haunted 'soap shop next to the Cuban cigar makers.
Gulls and pelican criss-cross the blue sky and flocks of noisy African parakeets fly from ship to ship. Cooking smells from the numerous restaurants mingle with the briny scent of the nearby Gulf of Mexico. People wander by savoring delicious looking pastries from the many bakeries that line the main street. Grab a dockside bench and watch the crab, sponge, fishing and pleasure boats pass along the Anclote River.
Our cottage is also convenient to banks, antique shops, restaurants and the great, new Public Library in downtown Tarpon Springs. Our city has a wealth of cultural events all year long and the renowned Pinellas Trail for running, biking, walking is 2 blocks away. We love our cottage and think you will also.
