Luxury Vacation Pool Home in Palm Harbor
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

This house is wonderful!! It was so spacious and had everything you would want in a vacation rental. The outdoor porch was awesome with a large pool and jacuzzi, as well as an outdoor kitchen. The bedrooms were huge with plenty of room for all our stuff, and the beds were soooo comfy!! Roger and Deborah were extremely friendly and helpful. The house is located in the center of everything - we visited Tarpon Springs, Clearwater beach, Honeymoon Island and downtown Dunedin. We never had too long of a drive. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We live on Long Island in New York and had a family reunion in Palm Harbor. Our 3 families stayed at this house and we were absolutely delighted with the accommodations. The house was perfectly clean, the beds were comfortable and the pool/spa was amazing. The complete outdoor kitchen by the pool was perfect for hosting a party for our family. The house is located in a nice neighborhood that was a short drive to everything we needed. The owners Roger and Deborah were delightful to deal with. This house exceeded our expectations and we could not have been happier. This is definitely our first choice for the next reunion.

The house was so much nicer than we thought, it was really centrally located to all the things we wanted to do. the owner Deborah was so nice, she had the house clean and ready for us when we got there.......the pool and hot tub are very nice and the fact that theres a grill, fridge and electric smoker outside is awesome, along with an wall mounted tv with cable !! We really only had two complaints and thats the retention pond behind the house gave us an unpleasant whiff of itself a couple of times but we quickly forgot about that and the second is that Deborah is a Lightning fan !! LOL............GO BLACKHAWKS !!!

Owner's Response: Our neighborhood has the advantage of reclaimed water for irrigation of our lawn. That was the stinky smell of Blackhawks fans (and recycled H2O)!! GO BOLTS!!

Excellent Property and Reasonable

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the property for a week and my children loved the pool and hot tub. Deborah was great meeting us at the property and giving us the run down on the area. I highly recommend this property if you are vacationing with your children or extended family. It's close to the beaches and only 10 minutes from Dunedin Beach and Honey Moon Island State Park. Thanks for everything Deborah!!!

What an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

We met Deb the first day we got there. She showed us around the house and explained the way everything worked and then was available when we had questions the rest of the time. She was so kind to us throughout our entire trip.

We had an excellent time staying at their home. When we first walked in we were amazed at the open spaced floor plan. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. We had most everything we needed. (What little we needed we could buy at the Walmart down the road.) And the rooms were spaced out where our entire family had privacy and each room had its own bathroom, which was excellent! We were able to stay in the master suite with our toddler where it was quiet and she was not disturbed at bedtime. There was also another master suite for my parents at the other end of the house which had its own TV and thermostat which was nice for them.

We spent almost everyday in the pool and every night in the spa. Deb asked if we needed the pool fence for our little girl. We were so grateful for not having to worry about her falling in the pool. Our little girl enjoyed the hot tub/spa the best.

We grilled out with friends using the outdoor kitchen. There was enough space inside and out to comfortably have people over and be able to move around.

We were able to use the garage to put our bikes in and park as well.

The neighbors were very friendly and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful.

We were able to use the WIFI to find places to go and eat out.

We enjoyed going to Honeymoon Island which was only 5 minutes away to play on the beach all day and watch the beautiful sunset.

Shopping was conveniently accessible as well.

While we were there, a lady stopped by with a note asking if she could get in contact with the owner to rent from them again, which speaks volumes for the owners and the home.

Overall we had a wonderful trip and we are incredibly grateful for the Downing's generosity and kindness. We would not want to stay anywhere else than with them if we come back. It is the perfect place for your stay in Palm Harbor!

We are just back in sunny (but cold) Scotland after three weeks holiday at this fantastic, well-appointed property which has every little thing you might need for a lovely relaxing break.

The owners were very pleasant to deal with and were more than helpful in sorting out any issues which arose.

The Palm Harbor and Dunedin area are very well placed for dining, shopping etc and the local beaches are out of this world - make sure to visit the stunning Caladesi Island.

We certainly plan to return to this property whenever we are next in Florida - can't recommend it enough!
