About Cecelia & Stu
My husband & I purchased our little jewel in 2005, with anticipation of having it for our retirement home on the water's edge, when the time comes. Our roots begin separately in the northern states, with beautiful Florida joining us together. My career is with a leading healthcare organization in the Tampa Bay area comprised of a network of hospitals and my husband's career is with a deep foundation specialist company.
Cecelia & Stu purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Cecelia & Stu chose Palm Harbor
We take pride in the quality of furnishing, bedding, linen, electronics and appliances, keeping them new or nearly new. Palm Harbor is close to everything the western Gulf Coast of Florida has to offer, but far enough to feel "away from it all'. We are on the waters edge, with nothing separating you from the water, other than the screened lanai and boardwalk. We are on the first floor with no stairs to climb, whether you are coming or going to your vehicle with luggage, groceries or laundry, going to the pool for a dip or to the waters edge.
What makes this Condo unique
We have a boat dock for your convenience of bringing your own boat. Many visitors enjoy bringing their own bass boats to Lake Tarpon, enabling the sportsmen to travel from one prime fishing spot to the next with little effort.

Great Spot - Truly a tranquil location
We were very pleased with the property. It actually exceeded what we were expecting from the description. Great entertainment system for a rental. Only steps from the pool and a pleasant lanai overlooking the waterway. Pleasant surprise was the kitchen was equipped much better than most rentals. From past experiences we usually bring quite a lot of our own cooking equipment but would have been happy with what was provided. Easy access to all local amenities and attractions. No hesitation in recommending and have in fact already done so with another family member.
Thank you for your wonderful review! We strive to achieve high quality standards and are glad it shows. We value your time and appreciate your feedback. It was a pleasure having you and your family for the month of March 2018.
Wishing you all the best,
Cecelia & Stu
Great escape on the waters edge
Great escape and was nice and quiet. The kitchen is complete and you can stock the fridge just like home. I particularly enjoyed having my morning coffee in the lanai overlooking the inlet and the boat docks. We would watch the little fish and baby gator in the water. The nights were relaxing with the moon light and with only the sounds of the palms gently blowing with the soft breeze. The unit is close to the laundry, which is a bonus. We could walk balk to the unit or jump in the pool while our clothes were washing. The high speed WiFi was fast and included, which always costs at other rentals. The unit was nice and clean when we arrived and had one of my favorites, white towels. We really enjoyed the place and the very reasonable cost. We will definitely return.
Our visit to Florida to see Grandkids
We loved the condo, very easy to get to. Quiet neighborhood. Everything was close. Beds need to be more comfortable....too hard. Loved the view out the back patio.
We are glad you enjoyed the condo & location. We have had all compliments on our choice of beds & comfort. Possibly we could include a roll up topper for guests desiring a softer top cover. Thank you for choosing our home.
This condo is a great home away from home.
This past March is the third consecutive year we have had the pleasure in renting this lovely condo. The condo itself is everything as advertised and more. There are additional touches that you may not find elsewhere, such as beach chairs, beach towels, coolers and even fishing rods. The view is great from the lanai and it is just a short walk to the pool.
There are great restaurants, golf courses, beaches, parks all in short driving distances. We discover new restaurants and parks each year. Also it is a short drive to Dunedin where we enjoy watching our Blue Jays during spring training. The Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club is practically across the street where the PGA Valspar tournament is played each year in March. I have gone the past 2 years to watch the final round. We have enjoyed going to the movies at the Moveco Theatre right across the street.
Celelia and Stuart are great hosts and we enjoy meeting them each year. They are readily available for any questions or concerns.
We will be returning in March for many more years to come.

Hello Sat & Donna, It's always a delight, having you share your adventures with us from the past year, until your next visit. We had a few cooler days with much rain, needing some cheer, so we cracked upon your pure maple syrup from Ontario! This is a maple treasure and not to be confused with pancake syrups. From the first taste, there was an explosion of aroma and paradise on your palate. You Canadian's certainly know how to make a rainy day, bright & sunny from the inside out. Thank you kindly - See you March 2016 - Cecelia & Stu
This is what Florida is all about!
We snowbirds come to Florida for sunshine and warmth, but along with that comes peace and relaxation. This home away from home offers all of that and more. This was our 2nd year in this beautiful and comfy condo and we can't wait for number 3. Cecelia and Stuart are super fantastic to work with and they make sure that everything is spic and span for your entire stay. The condo is exactly like it is pictured, and could not be in a better location. Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, the Sponge Docks, and all of Tampa's attractions are only minutes or a few miles away. One thing for sure...........you will not find any snow here, only great hospitality in a great condo. Thanks Cecelia and Stuart!
Hello Carol & Roger - It was our pleasure having you stay with us. Guests like you are why we enjoy managing our own unit. We can't wait to see your new paintings of the surrounding area, Lake Tarpon, Honeymoon Island, etc on your web site: www.anyartbyrocar.com. See you next year!
Our Month at Lake Tarpon Villas
Wanting to spend time in the Tampa/Clearwater area we spent many hours on the internet looking for a place and happened upon a condo on Cyprus Dr. We booked the condo sight unseen.
Arriving at the condo for the first time we were so pleased, and relieved, to find such a clean and beautifully decorated home away from home in a location that was minutes from beaches, golfing and shopping. There are many things to do with grandchildren when they come to visit, and we love being able to watch the Blue Jays during spring training.
Besides being spotless, the condo is well equipped including beach chairs, beach towels and fishing poles. Having a BBQ is such a convenience and an added bonus of having a crane come to stand and watch you cook, just adds to the pleasure. A Blue Heron seems to be a pet of the community and is always around if someone is out fishing.
Stuart and Cecelia are wonderful to work with and are always available for any problems or concerns.
We have rented this condo for the past two years and have already booked for next year and are hoping to be able to return for many more years.
