Peaceful Palms on the Anclote River
average rating of 5.0 based on 11 reviews

Loved this location, decorations, and personal touches!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening your home. From the moment we entered, we felt welcomed. From a personal note and welcome basket to the lovely decorations. It was fantastic.

Weather was spectacular and the wildlife was awesome. Manatee just off the dock most of the week and dolphins, bald eagles, and rays were seen as we explored on the boat.

My nephew is trying to decide how we can get our whole family back!!

We also enjoyed chats with the neighbors (and their dogs). Made my nephew feel at home with animals so close!

Thank you for a lovely, memorable week!!

Really nice property and owners

  • 5 of 5

This house is a very well furnished and decorated, comfortable retreat. It is located on a canal that, eventually, leads into the gulf. It's fronted by a quiet street with nice neighbors.

The owners are very accommodating and friendly. We met Darrel, who walked us through the house and gave very detailed instructions on the use of his pontoon boat. (extra charge)

There is a screen porch and patio that both look out onto the canal.

During our stay we saw manatees playing not 20 feet from the house dock in the evening.

The Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs, 15 minutes away, is a nice side trip with cool Greek restaurants and touristy shops, as well as boat tours and outdoor music.

Definitely worth considering if you are looking for a quiet place to hang out and stage your driving or boating adventures from.

Perfectly Peacefull Palms

  • 5 of 5

Organizing our family's 4th of July trip was extremely hectic with members arriving from three different sections of the country, so I was pleased to find this awesome home last minute. This is a must stay location. We all arrived separately, tired from driving or flying all day but upon opening the door the welcome home feel and smell embodied everyone of us. The treats were just what we needed and the home was spotless with no needs unthought of. Fishing poles, canoe, beach towels, cooler, serenity times a thousand!!!!!! Peaceful, quite neghborhood. Easy access to all attractions. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a memorable Fourth!

Peaceful Palms

  • 5 of 5

Ann Marie and Darrell,

We had such an amazing stay at Peaceful Palms! The house was perfect for the four of us and the accommodations were excellent! We were able to enjoy the simple pleasures of staying in along with venturing out because everything was so close and convenient. Both of you took such great care in ensuring we had everything we needed. We can't thank you enough for so a wonderful experience. It was a pleasure to rent from you. Looking forward to making it happen again soon!
