Our vacation from Heaven - When can we go back?

I cannot say enough about our stay in Tarpon Springs. This property is extremely clean, beautiful - inside and out!! The decor inside was clean and wonderfully relaxing; outside was absolutely amazing. We spent two weeks there; had originally rented for about a week and towards the end of the week, we requested another week. It was just 'that' special and absolutely the most beautiful, quiet and peaceful place; more than we could have ever imagined.
It is located on the water and you can sit on the porch and look at the most beautiful, huge oak tree with Spanish Moss hanging all over it. Beyond the tree, you will see canoes and people standing on boards, paddling their way to and fro, along with other boats. There is a marina, for your boating needs. The beach is within a mile or so and if boating, islands are within 10 -15 minutes. We visited an island and we were the only people there. It was gorgeous and I remember as a child, loving to find a, one (1) sand dollar, on the beach. On this island, if we had had a basket, we could have taken home 100 along with a large variety of other seashells.
I have to say, this place changed my life! It is a perfect, peaceful, beautiful location; any stress you arrive with, is none existent, while you are there and on your way out. We spent many hours on the porch relaxing and taking in the view. The landscape, water, people, town, shopping, dining... everything you could ever want is within driving distance and/or, in some instances - walking distance.
The owner was very friendly, professional and met our needs. It was well worth the price.
There is a full kitchen so you can cook your meals at 'home'. We did, however, eat out at several restaurants, some in Tarpon Springs and some within driving distance, in other directions, but very close to our location. Texas de Brazil is a favorite of ours so we found one in Tampa and visited there and were extremely pleased with the atmosphere and service.
You do not have to travel far for dining. Tarpon Springs has some wonderful dining experiences, some with live music. Whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner, there is something for every taste bud. We ate some wonderful Greek food, while we were there. Very reasonably priced restaurant experiences.
My only question is... when can we go back and how long can we stay?!?
We were so fortunate to have located this 'spot' and we will continue to visit as often as we can.
