A wonderful getaway in Tarpon Springs!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed four 4 weeks at this property and had a wonderful time. The house is clean, private, comfortable and very well-stocked. While I rented it on my own, I did have some of my kids and grandkids stay with me while I was there. The kids really loved the pool and the adults liked the tiki bar in the backyard. The location is close to beaches, shopping, the Pinellas bike trail and the docks in "downtown" Tarpon Springs. Pam was a wonderful host and any questions I had were answered promptly by text message.

The house and the community have a particularly relaxing vibe and I would highly recommend this place to anyone who really wants to get away and just take it easy!

This was the perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

This FL home was the perfect place for my husband and I to retreat to while we were in town for a week to visit him Mom, who is in assisted living there, and his sister and her family. We were only a 5 min drive to the sister's house and less than 10 min to the assisted living facility. There are multiple restaurants nearby that are very good and access to all things Tarpon - the beaches , the sponge docks, etc. - were easily accessible within minutes as well. The house was super clean and the backyard is large, especially for this area. Everything was in good working order and we had anything we needed. Even tho it was too cold to enjoy the pool we still enjoyed the sound of the fountains. Altho we didn't go for walks this is a really good area/neighborhood to walk in. You could even walk to a couple of the beaches if you wanted a bit longer walk! We will probably be back!

Christmas/New Year’s Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Overall, great place, good location and value for a family getaway. The property and setup was as described. The kids really enjoyed the backyard and pool when the weather was warm enough. The house is very spacious and we brought along an air mattress to sleep nine (5 adults and 4 kids). Pam was available throughout the week if we had any questions which was helpful. Thanks for sharing your home and allowing our family to make lasting memories over the holidays! This was the best Christmas/New Year’s I’ve had in a long time, having both my sons their wives and my four grandchildren all together. Thank you again 😊?

Lovely home with beautiful pool and yard

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. In a residential neighborhood, close to our family and the beach. The pool is beautiful, though the water was too cold for us to swim. Great fully stocked kitchen and laundry room were wonderful bonuses. And the cable tv and WiFi were fantastic! Communication with Pam was fantastic! She was so responsive and helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

Highlight of our Summer!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our family vacation to Tarpon Springs. We had an AMAZING time and made great memories at this home. The pictures do not justify how PERFECT the backyard is. The children spent hours day after day swimming in the pool and dancing on the deck to the surround sound. The tiki bar was a relaxing area for the adults to sit and supervise. We enjoyed visiting the nearby beaches (saw LOTS of dolphins) and the restaurants and shops on the strip.

Thanks were MORE THAN accommodating to us!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jen! So glad everyone enjoyed our pool and backyard. We just put in a brand new fence around the entire yard, so now it’s even better and more private than ever. Certainly hope you can come back again sometime!

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Pam, the owner, is quite helpful and responsive. We had a problem w/ the pool, which was resolved with her help. We left a note after our stay with a few thoughts about what we liked about the property, as well as a few suggestions for improvements. She thanked us and said she planned to buy new pillows! (Pillows were one of our very few peeves.)

Tarpon Springs is a quirky little town, with lots of great places to eat and several stunning beaches within a short drive (Honeymoon Island State Park, Clearwater, Indian Rocks). It's a great non-touristy home base.

The house is well appointed with lots of linens, towels, kitchen dishes/gadgets/basic condiments, games. The youngest members of our party especially enjoyed the drawing pad! We stay in lots of rental properties, and we agree this is one of the best stocked we've ever been in. There was even a first-aid kit. Great having a washer/dryer. Very spacious rooms, comfortably outfitted (with the exception of the pillows).

The large fenced-in yard is a great place to kick back and enjoy the pool. Our large party enjoyed it tremendously! No complaints w/ the TV or WiFi. We had 8 adults and a couple of kids. Had room for all to sleep comfortably, making use of available beds, couches and air mattress.

Recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Hi Ann, I appreciate your comments and want everyone to know that I am buying more pillows of various firmness/softness :)) AND we are sorry the pool filter was amiss during your stay, but it has been replaced and the reputable weekly maintainence pool company has reassured me our pool is back to perfection! The backyard/patio/tiki hut/pool is my favorite place, so keeping everything in great shape is very important to us! Thank you for spreading the word about the "magic" of Tarpon surely is a wonderful hidden gem. Hope you will come back again sometime.
