About Mark

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

Why Mark chose Palm Harbor

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

"Home from home"

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Andy thank you once again for making the effort to do the reviews, I know they can be cumbersome from what other people have said, hence most people don’t bother, but I really appreciate it.. Mark

a lovely retreat

  • 4 of 5

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!!

Comfortable, Spacious, Well Located Condo

  • 4 of 5

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.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Lake Tarpon Villas is a modern, stylish, low-level apartment complex with direct access to seven-mile long Lake Tarpon (Florida's second largest lake) which is great for bass fishing and water skiing. Both apartments look out onto water, boardwalks and boat docks and have use of our gas-grill-BBQ which is on the decking right by the water. The apartments come complete with all vital appliances and utensils together with Cable TV, free high-speed Internet, WIFI and telephone with free local calls. Next-door to the complex is a hotel with restaurant and bar which you can walk to. Opposite is a multiplex cinema. You will need a car to stay here. The Clearwater area is a popular tourist area with many restaurants, bars, shopping malls and although they are just minutes away the road layout in this area means they are spread along the main roads that cover this area and are not suitable for walking to. Outside: There is an open-air swimming pool (shared) with solar panels which heats the pool in the winter and cools the water in the summer, Jacuzzi (shared), sun loungers and picnic tables where you can relax alongside the boat docks and waterside. Both apartments can use our gas-grill-BBQ which is on the decking right by the water. Next-door is a boat yard from which pontoon boats can be hired and docked adjacent to the apartments at our own private mooring.
