If you are looking for an affordable, quite, nice and very, very clean condo, then this is the place for you!! It has all of the amenities for a family vacation. We were able to fit 2 adults and 4 teens easily for a weeks vacation. There are lots of beach towels and beach bags at the condo - so don't waste your time packing your own like I did. The owner provides bath towels and linens for the beds and pull-out couch. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean. Having a laundry area in the condo was a huge bonus. With 4 teens, I did laundry everyday. This condo has a great location. There is a grocery store and many more places to shop a block away. We used the back entrance a lot on our way to Honeymoon Island and Clearwater Beach. Having the option of the back entrance was a nice time saving option. We used the pool a couple of days. The pool is large which makes it nice when swimming with others. There are several tables and chairs around the pool for an afternoon picnic. The boys enjoyed the basketball court. Cindy was great to work with and easy to get ahold of if needed. I would definitely rent this condo again. The price was right. Overall, I appreciated the cleanliness of the condo the most. I'm a germ freak and had no problems staying there.
We chose this condo based on the location (have snowbird relatives on the other side of 19) and it was very conveniently located to everything we planned to do. This is a very nicely decorated condo in a quiet area. Bedrooms and bathrooms are cozy and there are plenty of thick towels and extra linens. We didn't do any cooking but the kitchen was well stocked should we have wanted to cook. Very nice furniture in the living room and WiFi provided in the condo. Cindy was pleasant to work with and provided clear instructions for everything from check in to check out and suggestions on points of interests in the area. Loved the back gate entrance onto Belcher Road so that we were able to avoid busy 19 on most of our outings. Sponge docks in Tarpon Springs have many nice shops and restaurants - our favorite is Hellas. It is a second floor unit and steps are a little steep. Would not hesitate to stay here again if coming back to the area.
We had a great time!! Close to Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island, we spent time on the beach as well as at the condo. It has everything to maintain the whole family happy : pool, tennis court, pingpong table.
My family vacationed in FL and stayed at this condo. The location was great and the condo was so comfortable that we felt right at home. Although every store you could possibly need is minutes away, the area was very quiet. My son was in love with the pool and everyone in the area was very friendly.
The true bonus to this rental is that Cindy was such a pleasure to work with.
I would highly recommend this rental and will be hoping to stay there again.
We had a very nice stay at this location during the month of April 2014. Our initial impression was that the interior always seemed dark (limited sunlight thru windows) but we got used to the shading and the "north facing" linai provided much relief from the heat during the afternoon periods. Everything was provided as described and and we found the condo very clean and well kept. Any concerns that surfaced proved to be quite minor. Our interaction with the owner was polite and professional. The list of activities provided was very accurate and helpful.
The pool area was close by and very well maintained but the Gulf beaches were a little drive away.
There were several "good value" restaurants nearby (on US19), Cody's, Lucky Dill, Longhorns etc with easy access. Grocery supplies (Publix/Walmart) were also immediayely adjacent to the complex.
We found the Pinellis Walking trail (that as about a 10 minute drive away) to be great for morning walks away from the local traffic.
It is a second floor unit (so you should be aware of the stair access that seemed a little awkward to us - probably because we are seniors with achy knees at times) and the designated parking space is quite close to the stair entrance.
All things considered,,,,we had a very nice stay....Rita and Bruce
Most importantly, the owner was very nice to work with. The condo was conveniently located. It was near fun beaches. Near Tarpon Springs and various other interesting towns. So many fun and tasty restaurants. The neighbors were nice and helpful. The condo was cozy and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable. It was certainly great to have the washer and dryer in the condo on an extended stay.
