Ideally located on Florida's Gulf Coast just minutes from many of America’s best beaches. The apartments are situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Tarpon, just north of Clearwater. Tampa International Airport is just 30 minutes away, with the major theme parks in Orlando only 90 minutes away. Come stay with us and you will find you can relax and recharge your batteries in a comfortable setting yet just minutes away you have all the activities and amenities that you could ever wish for! Relax by the heated pool and in the Jacuzzi and enjoy the waterfront environment. On your doorstep are an abundance of malls, restaurants, parks, beaches, golf courses and endless activities for young or old. Book with confidence - we have welcomed countless happy guests since 2001 - guest comments, extra pictures and additional information is available on our own web site (see link further down page). Each year about 3 months are booked out in each apartment to repeat visitors.
We are a fun-loving family from England who love our home away from home. As we work very hard on our website business we wanted a place to escape to and relax. This is just the perfect place.
Mark purchased this apartment in 2000
We wanted to be in the busy Clearwater Beach area of Florida where there is so much to do and see that one vacation is simply not enough, so we never get bored going back year after year.
It is also easy enough in just 90 minutes to get to all the theme parks in Orlando but we didn't want to be stuck on a suburban housing development in Orlando with nothing to do but visit the parks.
Instead we wanted a home on the gorgeous Florida Gulf Coast in a relaxing and homely part of Florida where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of watching the sun go down on some of the best white sandy beaches in the whole of America.
Although we are in an area with so much to do and see, we made sure we bought in a beautiful quiet spot so you can choose from the best of both worlds.
Our unique advantage over most normal properties is the superb location on the waters of Lake Tarpon.
The boats, decking and palms make this a lovely setting for your dream vacation. You can fish off the decking and see eagles and many other beautiful birds.
It is peaceful and tranquil yet the area we are in is full of malls, shops and excellent restaurants - and just minutes from beaches that have been voted the very best in the whole of America (and don't forget that includes Hawaii).
Inside the apartments we have made sure they are comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything you need to be able to sit back and relax.
We have now returned from our vacation, we had a great time and very much enjoyed the apartment. We found the apartment very clean and the people around the complex really friendly and a pleasure to speak with. I would definitely recommend this apartment to other people. Andrew N.
The apartment had everything we needed to ensure that we had a home from home holiday and I must say that the beaches at Honeymoon and Caladasi Islands are the best I have ever visited. My husband took his fishing gear and was surprised how easily he caught Bluegill and Bass from the decking - the first fish was on his second cast! Sam P.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It is a beautiful apartment equipped with everything you could possibly need and in a fantastic, peaceful location. We certainly hope to book at some point in the future. Karen E.
Conveniently located for the beaches and west coast cities and villages. This wonderful accommodation is set amongst the tropical palms, backing onto a creek with direct access to Lake Tarpon. Very comfortable, this is a good sized self contained condo with great facilities and fast speed wifi. The swimming pool is lovely, you have all you need for a very comfortable stay. Our second time, and it certainly won't be our last!
Set in a small complex of apartments we found it a very nice clean one bedroom apartment, with parking just outside the rooms.it was a great central place to stay in the area . Loved the pool and views with friendly residents to talk to.many great restaurants a short drive away, with codys roadhouse a great experience, and of course for steak lovers , longhorn steakhouse just down the road. Plenty of large stores close by. Would use again , thanks Mark great.
We booked this condo for 8 days but left after 6, to far out for our liking,
Apartment a little tired, fridge noisy, but overall nice and clean
We had a great week at this lakeside condo. Lots of wildlife to watch which we enjoyed. Quite rustic setting & very homely but if you are looking for perfectly manicured florida then this is not for you. However if you love nature, boats, fishing & the real lazy florida life then this is for you. The condo had everything needed for a comfortable stay & although some of it was a little bit "tired" it was all clean & perfectly adequate - certainly worth what we paid. There was even a couple of fishing rods to use - although we didnt catch any fish - we did however see a couple of alligators right up to our boardwalk! The communal pool was lovely with plenty of sunbeds- although we only discovered where the controls for the spa were on our last day. We visited the town of tarpon springs - lots of greek influence & history - we ate at Rusty Bellies right on the dock we visited DUnedin which is twinned with Stirling & has lots of Scottish references - very pretty. We had read a negative review about the noise from the main road - & yes you can hear it sometimes- but it really did not bother us. We had a great holidsy & would come back so that sums it up!!
We spent a really lovely six weeks in this ground floor one bed condo.
The accommodation is the first one as you approach the complex and, as such, has the advantage of being able to add the extra space of a Computer room/Library leading off the lounge area that other one bed condos do not have.
There was a large washer and drier facility that was most useful for the longer stay.
The spacious lounge opens up to an even wider furnished lanai, leading to the barbecue and boardwalk area with pleasant open views across the water to the nearby hotel.
It is well positioned for easy access to lots of restaurants, several beaches, some really beautiful parks, walking and biking trails, plus golf courses galore.
We have already booked our return.
I have been going to this property for a number of years. The accomodation is very clean and well maintained, there is everything you need, it is a home from home with everything thought of that you may want , also someone on hand if needed. The facilities are kept to a high standard eg the pool, laundrette etc.
The apartment is great at night, you can sit outside and have a nice glass of wine enjoying the warm air with no mozzies pestering you.
There are plenty of eating places which cater for all tastes. Codys, chillies, Sonny's (with ribs to die for) etc.
The location is ideal for beaches, parks, shopping and within easy reach to Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg.
I would recommend this property to family and friends.
Nearby are the well-known and lively beach resorts of Clearwater and St. Petersburg. Just 10 minutes away we have the quieter beaches of Honeymoon Island, Sunset Beach, Caladesi Island and Fred Howard Park. These hidden gems are often listed in the top 10 best beaches in America (beating competition in California and Hawaii!). Tarpon Springs is a renowned port just up the road, famous for it's ethnic Greek community diving for sponges.
Tampa International Airport is just 30 minutes away, with the major theme parks in Orlando only 90 minutes away.
We are just 8 miles north of famous Clearwater beach. Other fabulous beaches much closer i.e. Caladesi Island which in 2008 was voted best beach in the whole of America!
Florida is renowned for good value, delicious food, usually served in large portions! Menus include a wide selection from ethnic Italian or gourmet French to "down home" barbecue, juicy steaks or fresh fish caught daily. All of these are close by as well as lots of fast-food chains.
There are numerous supermarkets (including Wal-Mart and Publix) less than a mile away as well as other shops and malls.
You are within easy reach of Disney World, Epcot Centre, Universal Studios, MGM Studios, Sea Life, and all the other attractions in Orlando. On your doorstep in Tampa, you have a theme park, Busch Gardens, famous for having some of the best roller coasters in Florida.
There are major sporting teams such as the SuperBowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tampa Devil Rays baseball team. You can also watch spring training for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Nearby is the Pinellas Trail which is 47 miles long where you can walk, run, bike, jog, or rollerblade and the fabulous Anderson Park is less than a mile away.
There are endless other activities for everyone such as great shopping at the malls, water sports, scuba diving, snorkeling, museums (i.e. Salvador Dali), art galleries, gambling at the Hardrock casino in Tampa, bowling, zoos, cruises, concerts, nightlife, parks, fishing, cinemas, sailing, shelling, biking, tennis, racquetball, basketball, shuffleboard, horseriding, miniature golf, local library, live theater, sightseeing, waterskiing, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, rafting and swimming with Manatees or Dolphins.
