An absolutely wonderful place to stay!
Pat and Bob made our stay absolutely wonderful! All of the beautiful touches from the champagne to food amenities in the refrigerator were such a pleasant surprise. The place is beautiful, peaceful and so close to the water. Off the beaten path yet everything within reach. Highly recommend this getaway location.
Thank you David for the warm review . We are so pleased that you both enjoyed your stay with us. You were so very far away, west coast ,to the very west of our coast .but yet you found our paradise .In the future if you are ever out this way i would hope that you would choose the Carriage House for your stay. ...............Warmly ,Pat
Peaceful,quiet but close to everything. Wonderful hosts
We love the location, the accommodations are excellent. (One slight problem is that the bed is very high) Pat & Bob are excellent hosts and we love chatting with them. They provided some breakfast items and wine & cheese which is a lovely treat.
Thank you so much for your kind review, We always love hearing back from our guest. If you are back in our area we would hope that you would choose the Carriage House again. Regards, P.Grippe
Yvonne, we have had a beautiful wooden well made 2 step- step stool,Did you not see it? Perhaps it got push under the bed, not likely but that could have happen.
Relaxing Break? Look No Further
Escaping the English winter and after an active week on Sanibel with family down from New York on Spring Break, we were looking for somewhere to relax for the rest of our Florida visit. We knew nothing of Tarpon Springs but the description of the Carriage House and the excellent reviews suggested that this was just what we were looking for. We were not disappointed.
We got a good feeling as we drove in and it just got better.
Thank you, Pat and Bob, for everything: the beautifully designed and presented Cottage, the so thoughtful welcome pack of breakfast food, coffee, wine and sundries, the fun evening round the fire pit and the excellent route advice driving north avoiding the 19. We also found much to enjoy around Tarpon Springs and will certainly be back if the Cottage is available when we meet up with the family next year.

You couldn't ask for more! Pat & Bob have thought of everything to make this cottage like home without all the work of being at home. You really feel like a special guest with breakfast food in the refrigerator and the cottage being prepared for you when you arrive. They go out of their way to make sure that you have everything you need and a lot of things that make it very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cookware and dinnerware that you need, along with all the basic spices and staples needed to cook. We found an excellent Seafood Market down at the Sponge Docks and were able to purchase fresh shrimp and prepare them back at the cottage for dinner. The location of the cottage is perfect; very peaceful and out of the tourist area, but close to the Sponge Docks, Downtown Tarpon Springs, Honeymoon Island State Park, and many other beautiful parks and beaches. We spent three days there, and it was not nearly long enough to see all that we wanted to see. Pat and Bob were also very helpful in recommending restaurants and places to visit, and it was such a pleasure getting to know them. We left feeling like family. We will definitely be going back to stay there again in the future.
D& J Thank you, for your review,we appreciate when our guest share that what we do to make them feel at home an welcomed is noticed an acknowledged. We enjoyed sharing some of your visit ,before your departure to return home.We look forward to your return to the Carriage House in the future. Warmly ,P&B
Home Away From Home
The cottage home is very charming, user friendly, and the personal touches are done just right. Mr. and Mrs. Grippe leave no stone unturned. Food and beverage upon your arrival. The property inside gives you a roomy kitchen, comfortable lounge area, beautiful bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a king sized bed. The property outside is very well maintained with your own private deck, large fire pit and bar. The washer and dryer during our stay was wonderful. We highly recommend the cottage for your stay.
To our gracious guest and their (14 night stay) in the cottage. Thank you to both of you for your kind review on our Carriage House.It was nice to know also that your family was not far away to visit during your stay.
To hear from our guest, that what we do to make their stay enjoyable, pleases us to hearback from them. In your travels back to the area ,we would hope you would consider the Carriage House for your stay a Home Away From Home again. thanks!!!! Warm regards Pat & Bob
I have just concluded my second but certainly not my last stay at the cottage house. The property is beautifully landscaped and most peaceful. The cottage itself is well appointed with every manageable amenity. Internet is lightning fast, great TV.
Pat & Bob are great, interesting people. They provided what was essentially a weeks worth of breakfast for me..
What I really like is that while the property is secluded you are literally just a few minutes drive from shopping, restaurants and the downtown Tarpon Springs area.
