Review #6149908 A Little Bit of Paradise
My husband and I would recommend this beautifully decorated vacation home to families and couples. Clean, well supplied, lacking nothing. The enclosed, screened in area with pool was so comfortable. Both sun and shade provided. Quite private with the lagoon in the back of property. Close to all amenities. We visited the wonderful aquarium in Tampa. Lots of family style restaurants in area. We even tried pool in the game room. We are making our reservation for 2014.
We just returned from 5 weeks at this wonderful vacation home and have already decided to return next winter. This home is beautifully decorated, super clean, has everything to make you feel at home (including a crockpot), and the owners are friendly and gracious. We really felt "at home" during our entire stay. We highly recommend this rental to others looking for a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable time in Florida.
This was a very peaceful, relaxing vacation for us to get away and spend some quality time together as a family.. The house was beautifully decorated with a Florida vacation vibe. Everything was very clean inside and out. Jim was a great host, if we needed anything at all he was there in a jiff. He just lives a little ways down the road. We even wanted to stay 2 extra nights and he gladly made arrangements for us to. The house had everything we needed and more. The kids really enjoyed the pool, we all did. The pool is solar heated and when we first got there the pool was like a Jacuzzi which would have been awesome in the winter time. But Jim was great, he rushed right over as soon as I asked how to turn the heat off in the pool and made the temp just right. Although we live in Florida ourselves, this was a nice quiet place just to get away from all the hustle and bustle. There are a couple of good restaurants near by like Rusty Belly's is a good seafood place in Tarpon Springs, German near by that was good but very different. Also many delivery places to order inn too. I would definitely recommend this property. Thanks Jim for everything we really enjoyed it.
Our family loved the house. We had 4 adults and 2 children. The house was greatly loved by the entire family. Our boys had a great time in the pool which by the way was kept immaculate by Jim. The pool table was a wonderful plus. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of linen. You could tell by the way the house was decorated that Judy put a lot of thought and energy into it. The kitchen was so well supplied with utensils and dishes I was pleasantly surprised. I can't say enough good things about our experience. We will certainly stay there the next time we go back to Florida.
Loved this house. Beautiful decor, clean with a nice outdoor area and pool. Very quiet neighborhood. Jim was nice and was over to remove the pool vacuum for us in minutes. Had a BBQ and the kids had a blast in the pool. 35 minutes drive to Clearwater Beach - One more beach off my vacation destination list. Thx Jim.
As the title says, we found this home and it's owners to be wonderful. When we first walked in the home all we could think was this is a brightly colored Florida home. You can wash dishes and look out the window at the pool and also see the river at the same time. One morning a mama manatee and her baby swam by, so exciting. The house was clean and well supplied while the pool was delightful. Jim was right there to answer any questions, in fact we tried to use the gas grill one day and it didn't work, after letting Jim know, we had a new gas grill the very next day. We would highly recommend this home to anyone especially anyone who likes to swim. Thank you to Jim and Judy for letting us enjoy your home.
My son and I stayed here for 3 nights. It is a very comfortable, nicely decorated house.
Although we didn't use the pool, it was a nice feature.
The place was very clean. Even though it was in a housing development, it was very quiet.
Restaurants and beaches are not too far away, and one nice place is Tarpon Springs tourist area with its shops and restaurants.
I would stay here again.
Owners were close by in case they were any issues, but there weren't any.
GUESTS arriving at our Holiday House don't mind if owners Jim and Judy aren't around to greet them personally, Mother Nature is happy to oblige. Outside this 1500 sq. ft. rental on the Anclote River, (five minutes north of Tarpon Springs and 35 minutes from St. Pete and Tampa Airport) seagulls soar overhead and dolphins and manatees cavort in warm waters below. Lizards and butterflies in the gardens surprising visitors with an impromptu appearance on the deck, dock or pool lanai.
Holiday House invites quests to enjoy the tropical surroundings at a deliciously relaxed pace. Judy and Jim have decorated this dream cottage for people desiring an island experience. This colorful dwelling is perched on a wide river curving west to the gulf in an undisturbed nature. The view with sun glistening on the water in the morning is only rivaled by the palm trees and fresh grapefruit juice.
