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. 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.

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!

Fantasti place to stay home from

  • 5 of 5

My self and my husband stayed in this beautiful condo for two weeks, it was the first time that we had planned a holiday this way rather then hotels. But after this years holiday we shall never go to hotels any more, this was set in such an idyllic place so peaceful and relaxing ,there is every thing that you would need in home comfort,infact its like you would have back home.

this is a good place to stay as there is so many things to do and see on this side of the coast ,we both loved Clearwater with its fabulous beach gorgeous white sand and yes clear sea, there are many places to visit i.e. honey moon island for those that love to ramble walk cycle or even just relax on the beach, there is an abundance of wild life here too,

there is a Walmart just up the road 5mins away every thing you would want for your stay, even a Publix on the opposite side, we would go out for the day then just come back and relax, sit in the conservative area and just watch and listen so peaceful,

a big thank you to Anne she was so helpful in every way ,nothing was to much trouble and often chatted with us both,

once more a big thank you to mark and his family for all the help and information

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Lake Tarpon Villas. The condo is well situated in a central location close to many great places to visit including Tarpon Springs, Clearwater and Dunedin as well as many beautiful beaches. The condo also has a stunning view across some water making it a very peaceful place to stay. The condo was really clean when we arrived and very comfortable. Would recommend to anybody and we would be happy to go back.

"Home from home"

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located for the beaches and west coast cities and villages. This wonderful accommodation is set amongst the tropical palms, backing onto a creek with direct access to Lake Tarpon. Very comfortable, this is a good sized self contained condo with great facilities and fast speed wifi. The swimming pool is lovely, you have all you need for a very comfortable stay. Our second time, and it certainly won't be our last!

Owner's Response: Andy thank you once again for making the effort to do the reviews, I know they can be cumbersome from what other people have said, hence most people don’t bother, but I really appreciate it.. Mark

Notes on accommodation: Lake Tarpon Villas is a modern, stylish, low-level apartment complex with direct access to seven-mile long Lake Tarpon (Florida's second largest lake) which is great for bass fishing and water skiing. Both apartments look out onto water, boardwalks and boat docks and have use of our gas-grill-BBQ which is on the decking right by the water. The apartments come complete with all vital appliances and utensils together with Cable TV, free high-speed Internet, WIFI and telephone with free local calls. Next-door to the complex is a hotel with restaurant and bar which you can walk to. Opposite is a multiplex cinema. 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. Outside: There is an open-air swimming pool (shared) with solar panels which heats the pool in the winter and cools the water in the summer, Jacuzzi (shared), sun loungers and picnic tables where you can relax alongside the boat docks and waterside. Both apartments can use our gas-grill-BBQ which is on the decking right by the water. Next-door is a boat yard from which pontoon boats can be hired and docked adjacent to the apartments at our own private mooring.
