Overview

Palm Harbor Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartments in Palm Harbor, Near Clearwater, Gulf Coast, Florida - Waterfront Location On Lake - 10 Mins Drive To Beaches - Lots To See/Do In Clearwater Area

Ideally located on Florida's Gulf Coast just minutes from many of America’s best beaches. The apartments are situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Tarpon, just north of Clearwater.

The big and exciting city of Tampa together with its International Airport is just 30 minutes away, with the major theme parks in Orlando only 90 minutes drive away.

Come stay with us and you will find you can relax and recharge your batteries in a comfortable setting yet just minutes away you have all the activities and amenities that you could ever wish for!

Relax by the heated communal pool and in the Jacuzzi and enjoy the waterfront environment. On your doorstep are an abundance of malls, restaurants, parks, beaches, golf courses and endless activities for young or old.

Book with confidence - we have welcomed countless happy guests since 2001 - guest comments, extra pictures and additional information are available on our own web site (see link further down page). Each year about 3 months are booked out in each apartment to repeat visitors.

Prices are fully inclusive of local taxes and utilities. No hidden extras unlike some other rentals. The apartment will be cleaned before and after your stay. No need for you to lift a finger, relax and enjoy! Credit cards accepted.

WHAT A LOCATION

The apartments are situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Tarpon in the small and quaint town of Palm Harbor, just north of the famous beach resort of Clearwater with mile after mile of white sandy beaches all the way down to St Petersburg. We are also just south of the well-known tourist town of Tarpon Springs.

You will need a car to stay here. The Clearwater area is a popular tourist area with many restaurants, bars, shopping malls and although they are just minutes away the road layout in this area means they are spread along the main roads that cover this area and are not suitable for walking to.

RELAX AND RECHARGE

Come stay with us and you will find you can relax and recharge your batteries in a comfortable setting yet just minutes away you have all the activities and amenities that you could ever wish for!

Relax by the pool and in the Jacuzzi and enjoy the waterfront environment. On your doorstep are an abundance of malls, restaurants, parks, beaches, golf courses, cinemas and endless activities for everyone – regardless of age.

WATERFRONT LIVING

Lake Tarpon Villas is a modern, stylish, low-level apartment complex with direct access to seven-mile long Lake Tarpon (the second largest lake in Florida) which is great for bass fishing and water skiing.

Both apartments look out onto water, boardwalks and boat docks. Often you will see fish in the water and storks and herons right outside on the decking. Our gas-grill-BBQ is on the decking right by the waterside.

There is an open-air swimming pool which has solar panels to heat the water in the winter and cool the water in the summer. There is a Jacuzzi, sun loungers and picnic tables where you can relax alongside the boat docks and waterside.

Next-door is a boatyard from which pontoon boats can be hired and docked adjacent to the apartments at our own private mooring.

Also next door is a great restaurant and bar which you can walk to.

WE HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED

Both apartments come complete with all vital appliances and utensils together with Cable TV with over 80 channels, DVD player and telephone with free local calls.

The kitchen has all the obvious appliances and utensils you need for cooking i.e. cooker, microwave, pots, pans, cutlery, kettle, coffee-maker etc. There is also a dishwasher and refrigerator.

For your convenience we have installed a computer with free high-speed Internet access and WIFI for your portable devices.

AWARD-WINNING BEACHES

Of course most people coming to stay with us want to know what the beaches are like. Well luckily we are minutes away from many great beaches. Many people have heard of St. Petersburg and Clearwater but close by there are more local beaches such as Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island, Fred Howard Park and Sunset beach. Some of these have been voted in the top ten of all beaches in America – beating off competition from California and Hawaii!

WHY STAY WITH US

We bought in this area because we wanted a home in a relaxing and homely part of Florida where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of watching the sun go down on some of the best white sandy beaches in the whole of America.

Our unique advantage over most normal properties is the superb location on the waters of Lake Tarpon. The boats, decking and palms make this a lovely setting for your vacation. You can fish off the decking and see eagles and many other beautiful birds yet you are in an area full of malls, shops and excellent restaurants.

Inside the apartments we have made sure they are comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything you need to be able to sit back and relax.

ANDERSON PARK

This is about a mile up the road and also gives access to Lake Tarpon. Well worth a visit as it is absolutely beautiful. Great covered picnic areas and plenty of restrooms.

THEME PARKS IN ORLANDO

You are within easy reach of Disney World, Epcot Centre, Universal Studios, MGM Studios, Sea Life, and all the other attractions in Orlando. The drive is a very easy one as you take highway 4 all the way from Tampa towards Orlando and it takes about 90 minutes.

TAMPA

On your doorstep in Tampa, you also have a major theme park, Busch Gardens, famous for having the best rollercoasters in Florida. Tampa itself has all sorts of attractions from waterfront shopping, marinas, Lowry Park Zoo, museums, malls, sports and nightlife.

RESTAURANTS

Florida is renowned for good value, delicious food, usually served in large portions! Fine restaurants are plentiful, varying from elegantly simple to simply elegant. Menus include a wide selection from ethnic Italian, gourmet French, Japanese to “down home” barbecue or fresh fish caught daily.

There are some fantastic restaurants near to our apartments in Palm Harbor/Clearwater. The choice and variety is simply amazing. Within 5 miles miles we calculate there to be hundreds of restaurants.

SUPERMARKETS/GROCERIES

Numerous supermarkets (including Wal-Mart, Publix and Albertsons less than a mile away) as well as shops and malls (including Clearwater Mall) are also on your doorstep.

GOLF

The area is a haven for golf lovers. Less than half a mile away is world-famous Westin Innisbrook Resort which hosts a PGA tour event which attracts golfers such as Tiger Woods.

Wentworth Golf club and the Lansbrook Golf course are also top courses but equally there are affordable public golf courses at which players of all standards can just turn up to play.

Within 10 miles there are about 40 golf courses!!

SPORTS

There are major sporting teams such as the SuperBowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays baseball team. You can also watch spring training for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies.

SWIM WITH MANATEES

Swimming with Manatees in Crystal River in the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park has also been recommended by previous guests.

CINEMA

There is a 10-screen multiplex literally across the road.

MORE THINGS TO DO!

Nearby is the Pinellas Trail which is 47 miles long where you can walk, run, bike, jog, or rollerblade.

There are endless other activities for everyone such as great shopping,, water sports, scuba diving, snorkeling, museums (i.e. Salvador Dali in Tampa), art galleries, gambling at the Hardrock casino in Tampa, bowling, zoos, cruises, concerts, nightlife, parks, fishing, sailing, shelling, biking, gyms, tennis, racquetball, basketball, shuffleboard, horseriding, miniature golf, live theater, sightseeing, waterskiing, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, rafting and swimming with Manatees or Dolphins.

Come have the vacation of a lifetime that you will always remember!!!

About Mark

We are a fun-loving family from England who love our home away from home. As we work very hard on our website business we wanted a place to escape to and relax, yet have the choice to be busy and have lots of things to do and see on our doorstep - this is just the perfect place.

Mark purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Mark chose Clearwater Area

We wanted to be in the busy Clearwater Beach area of Florida where there is so much to do and see that one vacation is simply not enough, so we never get bored going back year after year.

It is also easy enough in just 90 minutes to get to all the theme parks in Orlando but we didn't want to be stuck on a suburban housing development in Orlando with nothing to do but visit the parks.

Instead we wanted a home on the gorgeous Florida Gulf Coast in a relaxing and homely part of Florida where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of watching the sun go down on some of the best white sandy beaches in the whole of America.

Although we are in an area with so much to do and see, we made sure we bought in a beautiful quiet spot so you can choose from the best of both worlds.

What makes this apartment unique

Our unique advantage over most normal properties is the superb location on the waters of Lake Tarpon.

The boats, decking and palms make this a lovely setting for your dream vacation. You can fish off the decking and see eagles and many other beautiful birds.

It is peaceful and tranquil yet the area we are in is full of malls, shops and excellent restaurants - and just minutes from beaches that have been voted the very best in the whole of America (and don't forget that includes Hawaii).

Inside the apartments we have made sure they are comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything you need to be able to sit back and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have now returned from our vacation, we had a great time and very much enjoyed the apartment. We found the apartment very clean and the people around the complex really friendly and a pleasure to speak with. I would definitely recommend this apartment to other people. Andrew N.



The apartment had everything we needed to ensure that we had a home from home holiday and I must say that the beaches at Honeymoon and Caladasi Islands are the best I have ever visited. My husband took his fishing gear and was surprised how easily he caught Bluegill and Bass from the decking - the first fish was on his second cast! Sam P.



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It is a beautiful apartment equipped with everything you could possibly need and in a fantastic, peaceful location. We certainly hope to book at some point in the future. Karen E.

great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything from beginning was great. Reservation, communication with the condo owner, and then condo itself. Before we get there we received very detailed e-mail from the owner with the details about almost everything in the area that you should know. Condo itself was great. Very quiet community , huge living room, and everything else you need for nice stay. Deposit refund was really fast, and i can say after all we had great vacation and plan to visit again.

Idyllic Lake Tarpon Villa

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, very clean and tidy and we loved the view to the waterway. It was very convenient for everything, the US19 has a lot to offer! We had a few drives to the beaches at Clearwater (lovely white sand and the water was like stepping into a bath), Caladesi (ferry trip and nature what a combo) and Siesta Key (softest sand ever – can see why it was voted #1 in Florida), all beautiful. Why would anyone ever leave Florida!!

Thanks to Mark for all your help and for making the booking process so straightforward.

We would recommend the apartment to friends and family and would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and it's location meet all of our requirements. Easy access onto the Alt19 with all the beaches and parks, and a pleasant drive down to Dunedin and Clearwater or heading north to Tarpon Springs.

Sitting on the lanai with a drink at night was very pleasant..... we also made use of the beach chairs in the apartment to go and watch the sunset from Sunset beach.... Love the door code system for entry, wonderful not to worry about keys!
