About Steven Jewell

Retired 2013 after a career working in public sector IT. UK based (Hertfordshire) and now a frequent visitor to Florida.

Steven Jewell purchased this house in 2012

Why Steven Jewell chose Palm Harbor

This property is well established and in a lovely safe and well kept area, convenient and close to everything; close to Tampa airport, abundant shopping malls, super beaches, lake Tarpon, Clearwater beach and numerous other attractions. The property feels like brand new and was completely refurbished and redecorated in 2012 by a local builder with new kitchen and bathroom units and appliances. We've completed this overhaul with new bedrooms, furniture, utilities (washer and dryer), linen and all new kitchen equipment. The property is fitted out with good broadband, telephone and TV services. In 2014 we added a pool table and extra furniture in the bonus room.

What makes this house unique

The private, large heated pool is the crowning glory of the property; fully heated for warm swims in the winter months. A great patio area with a covered lanai for trouble free outdoor entertaining. From 2013 virtually everything is brand new. Access to a large community pool and tennis courts.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (60 and 62) stayed at this property for two weeks in September 2015. We have rented many homes in various areas of Florida and this property suited all of our needs. We wanted a beautiful, clean and comfortable home with private pool in a safe neighborhood, close to beaches, good restaurants and shopping.

The property was very clean and no amenities were missing. We especially liked the layout of the house (the master bedroom and bathroom are separated from the other bedrooms and bathroom by the common living space… a perfect layout for a family, we think.

While not out and about and except for the occasional evening games of pool in the bonus room, we spent all of our time outdoors near the gorgeous pool, even during thundershowers – under the roofed lanai. We often commented on how quiet the neighborhood was.

Carole, the representative managing the property, was very nice and was always available for us if we needed her. Steven, the owner of the property, was also very nice and quick to reach and react. We were amazed at just how quickly they reacted to have the pool filter replaced when we noticed on our second day (a Sunday) that it was broken and gushing water out by the gallon. A brand new filter was installed within 24 hours and we were very pleased about that. We never had any other issues.

Contrary to what we thought, we were pleasantly surprised that the property is located within 10-25 minutes of driving time to most attractions in the area. Restaurants (our favourite – Carrabba’s Italian Grill), cafés and shopping in Palm Harbor are all close by – some within walking distance. It was nothing for us to drive to Fred Howard State Park, Dunedin, Clearwater and the many beach accesses along Gulf Blvd.

We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return in 2016. We highly recommend this property.

Superb 'home from home' property

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting in this area for almost 20 years and this is undoubtedly the most beautiful, well-equipped home we have stayed in. Can't recommend it enough.

Steven and Diane were very helpful both before we arrived and while we were there - a pleasure to deal with!

We had a fabulous holiday and very much appreciated all the little touches provided - from beach chairs to jug kettle to books/games and a wide range of cutlery, crockery pots and pans etc - which make the property feel like a real home from home.

The large pool is very well maintained and we made good use of it every day. We also used the pool table in the bonus room most evenings and had great fun.

We are already planning for our next break at Carson Lane - can't wait!!

This was our first experience as vacationing renters. I must say that this house was the ideal choice for us. We have friends from home who winter in the area, which made the location perfect for us. Everything we needed or wanted was close by as far as dining, shopping, sightseeing, and recreation. The house is in perfect condition, and is well equipped with all the essentials and modern convniences. The information book at the property was most helpful. The home was immaculate upon arrival, and it is evident that it is well maintained. The pool table provided many hours of enjoyment , and the heated pool was fantastic. If you like a quiet neighborhood, this is a great one with well maintained properties in a beautiful wooded area. We enjoyed many walks within the neighborhood. We would like to thank and commend the owners for offering a truly fine home. They were wonderful to work with. We look forward to returning for vacations in the future.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful home. It is a great property with an ideal location that is convenient to the airport, beaches, restaurants, shopping, movie theatre, and more. The house is in mint condition and offers all the comforts of home. The neighborhood is very quiet and the tree-lined streets provide great views for walking. The owners were very accommodating, friendly, and provided all the information we needed to have a great time. We look forward to vacationing at this property again in the future.

My wife and I stayed in this rental in February and March 2014. From first contact until the day we departed S. & D. were a dream to work with. Always willing to answer all our questions and while we were in the rental most responsive to the one or two minor details we wanted taken care of. The binder and bulletin board with info about nearby restaurants and attractions was most thoughtful and helpful. The binder also included all the information we required with regards to the day to day operation of the house.

The listing description is accurate as are the listing photographs, if anything the photos do not do this rental justice. The property was spotless and very well maintained and there was a pool man and grounds keeper who dropped in once a week or so. Paying the extra to keep the pool heated was well worth it as early morning or late evening swims in the 80 degrees plus water were delightful.

The property is in a quiet safe neighborhood and is within easy driving distance of the many attractions that Palm Harbor/Dunedin have to offer.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to our friends and relatives. If time and circumstances present themselves we certainly dream of the day when we can return to this gem for another beautiful vacation.

Thanks S. & D. and we hope someday our paths cross again.

Honeymoon Island
Car: recommended

Lake Tarpon (various state parks) is about 5 minutes drive away - for barbecues, great fishing, trails, viewing towers, boating and water activities. Fishermen are 'spoilt for choice' in this area. Travel a little further (20 mins) you can reach the Honeymoon Island State Park and beach and from there the short ferry ride to Caladesi island; both of these are nature reserves, completely unspoiled and offer park trails with superb beach and sea activities. Caladesi beaches are continually voted as being in the top 10 in the USA. Fred Howard Park (a lovely beach) is also nearby for pedal boats, kayaks, bird and wildlife watching, swimming and beach relaxation. Also close by are the Sponge Docks of Tarpon Springs with numerous Greek restaurants, bars, shops, bakeries and a Greek diving museum and 'Greek atmosphere'. You can visit the marinas of Dunedin and Ozona with good dining and just to the south (all under 30 minutes) is Clearwater Beach - world renowned, a great beach and wonderful resort area as well as the Clearwater Acquarium. Looking for golf? There are numerous super golf courses nearby and the Innisbrook championship course is about 4 miles away. Sports fans should note this area now has the Phillies Spring Training Ground within a 5 minute drive. Raymond James and Tropicana field are about a 30 minute drive. Fancy going to see horse racing - Tampa Bay Downs is under 15 minutes drive. In under 45 minutes you can reach Busch Gardens theme parks and in about 90 minutes Disneyworld in Orlando. The Tampa International Airport and St Petersburg airports are both within about 30 minutes driving time.
