HI Roland,



I just spoke with Kevin and he said your house was fantastic. I would like to keep it in mind for next year and I will touch base with you at the end of the year

To see if you will be renting it out during the tournament next year.



Thanks again for your help and Sherry’s.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the "Driftwood House". Thats what we called it all week since it was on Driftwood Drive. We have a large family with ages from 4 to 67...and everyone had a great time! There was plenty of room for each one to enjoy quiet time or hang out together ariund the pool or pool table! The dock was especially helpful for the pontoon we brought to fish and swim at the nearby islands. We used the boat ramp at Sunset Park Beach to load and unload the boat and that was very convenient also! Great house, great memories made! Called the owner a time or two with questions and he was very easy to reach and very helpful. I will recommend this rental to everyone I know!

Beautiful location on the water

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is very convenient... just a short drive to Tarpon Springs and Clearwater. The sunsets were beautiful to watch each night as were the boats passing by. The boys enjoyed fishing from the dock too. Roland was hospitable and was available by phone when we needed him. Overall a nice spot!

Great for guys get away

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 men stay at this location which was very clean and spacious for our golf/ spring training friends. The location was picturesque with the great water view. All the amenities were good. The location to highway 19 made it convenient to baseball stadiums and golf courses.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at the house. It was perfect for us (7 adults and 2 kids, aged 8 and 11). There's plenty of space for everyone to get together and also to enjoy some alone time. The kids particularly enjoyed the pool, looking for sea creatures from the dock during low-tide and watching lizards run around the trees in the front yard. As others have written, the location is excellent! It's in a really quiet, friendly residential area, but minutes away from beautiful parks and beaches, shops and restaurants, and only about half an hour from Tampa and Clearwater Beach for more "city" activities. Some of our group went into Orlando two of the days, once to Universal and once to Disney, and they were all glad they could get there within 2 hours and have a peaceful home with a gorgeous view to come back to at the end of long days at the park. Stacey the property manager took great care of us when we had questions and immediately replaces a few light bulbs that burned out. The huge kitchen does have an eclectic assortment of pots and cups and accessories, as others have noted, but the 9 of us were never lacking anything we needed - there's even a meat slicer if you want to bring your own ham :-) We highly recommend this property.

The View is the Best Part

  • 3 of 5

The view from the back porch and pool area is absolutely gorgeous. House is functional but in no way luxurious. Master bedroom and bathroom is very nice although some shower nozzles aren't working and there is lack of lighting in the shower. Other upstairs shower is difficult to regulate and we we either getting burned or were too cold. Downstairs shower has an odd shower head that doesn't really allow you to get properly soaked so best for guests with short hair.

Kitchen was functional but does have an odd selection of mid-matched pots, pans and plates.

Everyone had a lot of fun with the pool table - several tournaments were organized.

We recommend a trip to near-by Howard's State park for swimming, fishing and rentals of kayaks etc.

All said, we had a nice time but it was too expensive for the condition of the house.

Owner's Response: I offered to have our plumber look at the shower head but the guest did not reply back. We have had the shower head replaced, but it's a complete exaggeration as to its flow. It's more likely this guest ignored our written advice that using all nine shower heads in the master shower although fun ... will consume the entire hot water tank in about 15-20 minutes depending on how hot the water selection is. We welcome all guest to enjoy this shower feature but common sense dictates that pressure and amount of hot water in any home has a limit. All three showers work fine at the same time, but if you turn on all heads in the master at the same time your going to reduce water water pressure. I think the real issue is I notified this guest we would not be refunding a security deposit until they addressed 3 of 4 damaged pool cues, the first time we have done this since beginning with VRBO in 2013. Absolutely our worst experience renting our home. The guest review came only after we advised the guest of the damage to the pool cues. I welcome feedback from guest and endeavor to provide a great experience for all our guests.

Car: recommended

Palm Harbor is best known for the championship golfing at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club. This upscale community in North Pinellas county has spectacular boating fishing and minutes from beaches Howard Park a few miles north and clearwater beach 10 miles south. We regularly have two dolphins that feed in high tide feet from our dock. Jet skis and boating in the backyard is what living on the gulf is all about. Fantastic views from all over the outside and inside of the property.
