Palm Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 Adults and 2 Children

Surprise discount! - Bookings after 6/6/2016 will receive a discount equal to the service fee. Please ask for a quote including the discount. Thank you.

This is the best location in Pinellas County with over 30 acres of private community park including paved walking trails, 4 lighted tennis courts, basketball hoops, and playgrounds. Take a look at the map, your options are AWESOME. Google “Honeymoon Island State Park” an unspoiled natural paradise of Gulf beaches and wildlife sanctuary. Take a ferry to Caladesi Island State Park where you’ll lose your breath the first time you emerge from the nature trail onto the Gulf shores. You might spend your entire day on the Dunedin Causeway, beautiful water on both sides, where everyone does their own thing (fishing, swimming, sleeping, reading, watching, walking, biking, running, kayaking, sailing, whatever). Love the sunset? Pick just about any place nearby, including Dunedin Causeway, Clearwater Beach, Honeymoon Park, Crystal Beach (bring your camera, the beauty is calming to the soul). What else? The sponge docks at Tarpon Springs are just north, St Pete to the south, or Tampa to the east. Orlando is less than 2 hours away. You could see NFC football, American league baseball, MLB spring training, or even NHL hockey. The four championship courses of the Innisbrook Golf resort are next door (plus numerous other less known golf courses). Best of all you’ll relax in a fully furnished Palm Harbor home with all the amenities to make your stay a success. This 2156 sq ft home is a classic Florida split, meaning the master bedroom is on the opposite side of the house from the two guest rooms. The master bedroom has a private bathroom and the bed is a king size. The two guest rooms share a bathroom. One room has two twin beds while the other has a queen sized bed. There is a fully furnished kitchen, wireless internet access, satellite HDTV, and of course, a pool. You will love the 1700 sq ft screened in patio featuring a 20,000 gallon pool with waterfall, cable television, and an available gas grill for cooking out.

My entire experience from beginning to end was one of the best I have ever had. I have been booking online vacation homes for years and dealing with the owner of this property (Craig) has been one of the best experiences of any of them. He is absolutely awesome and is ALWAYS available if you need anything at all and will immediately respond. The home itself is absolutely beautiful with everything that you could possibly need. The owners go above and beyond to make sure that you are well taken care of. It is a great location because you are out of the hustle and bustle of St. Pete, Clearwater, and Tampa, but yet only within a 20-45 drive. The home is in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood, and I felt very safe here. I could go on and on about the owner and the home, but if you are interested in renting this property, do NOT hesitate to do so. You will NOT be disappointed. I can not find one negative point about this rental. Thank you Craig for everything. My family and I truly appreciate everything you did to make our vacation special.

Absolutely Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an absolutely wonderful stay at Craig's vacation home. The home was very clean, comfortable and very well kept. We found Craig to be very gracious and concerned that we have a great stay. We appreciated the information and suggestions about things to do in the area to have an enjoyable time. He checked with us periodically to ensure that everything was fine and operational at the house and answered any questions we may have had. We found him to be very courteous and friendly throughout our stay. This was the first time we had booked a vacation home online and this property more than exceeded our expectations. We appreciate that a cooler and chairs were available for our time at the beach and a crib available for my toddler grandson. Although we encountered travel issues resulting in later than anticipated arrival/check-in at the property, Craig was very understanding and accommodated our situation. The couple times we did call with questions, he responded immediately. We spent much time in the pool and just hanging out on the screened patio eating meals, playing games and watching TV. It made for a great place for a barbecue one evening with relatives in the area and other family members who happened to be vacationing in the Clearwater area at the same time. I would recommend this property to family and friends and would definitely check its availability if planning to vacation in the Tampa area in the future. Thanks Craig for helping us have a great vacation in the Tampa/Clearwater area.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Palm Harbor and we loved every minute of our stay. The house is amazing and it has everything what we needed. Craig is awesome. Greeted us upon our arrival and was checking on us during our stay if we needed anything. Location is very convenient, close to Clearwater and St. Pete but we felt in love with the Honeymoon Island beach and we went there everyday. House is big, has lots of room for everyone. The best part is the pool and the TV where my boys watched Euro '16 soccer games everyday. The check out time is at 11 am but the owners let us stay at the pool area to watch Polish team (our home team) play a game to advance to quarter finals. We will definitely go back. We felt like at home.

Vacation for adults who spent time in florida

  • 5 of 5

Craig was very friendly and very helpful during the process of renting and also during our stay at this property. The property is very clean and well kept. There were no hidden fees or added expenses that were encountered. The property was set up nicely for the 2 families the we had staying there. The pool area is very well stocked and relaxing. We would definitely stay at this property again if we get to spend time in Florida.
