This is a cozy waterfront home that has recently been completely renovated with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath and a laundry room. This is an open floorplan home that has room to sleep 6. There are several Championship Golf Courses (Innisbrook Golf Course) in very close proximity to the home. The Pinellas Trail is less than a mile away which runs 34 paved miles for walking, jogging, bicycling/roller blading etc. that you can use with no fees. There are 2 beaches that are within 2 miles, Fred Howard Park and Sunset Beach. The sponge docks are a great sightseeing tour with night life, cultural classes and workshops, St. Michael's shrine, Safford House Museum, Historic Antique district and much more. Stroll through the Greek village and visit over 100 unique shops. All of the theme parks from Tampa to Orlando are within reach. This is much more than just a Florida vacation. Reclaim your sanity and enjoy serenity with your loved ones. Kayak and Canoe down the Anclote River in calm peaceful waters where St. Petersburg College trains all their students. The location could not be better to enjoy all of the surrounding area amenities.
Some of the best fishing we have experienced has been right off the sea wall in the back yard. Anything from Reds, Amber Jack, Red Bellied Snapper, all from the comfort of the property. Catch your bait in the back yard and cast away from the sea wall or dock. You can't go wrong with our outstanding vacation home.
My wife and I met about 10 miles south of this property when we were just 13 years old in Dunedin, Fl. Little did we know when we met that we would spend the rest of our lives together. Recently, we decided that we wanted to purchase a home that we could retire in this area on the water. After several visits looking at different property, the perfect property hit us in the head. We knew when we first pulled up that this was the property. Our family is still young enough that we can share this property with our kids and afford to share it with you also. We lead very busy lives but absolutely love our time on the East coast of Fl. My wifes family lives all around the area and this makes for the perfect vacation home.
Chris purchased this house in 2011
We know with the time and money we have put into this home, you will enjoy it just as much as we do. Every amenity of a Florida vacation home is within minutes of the property. The most gorgeous view you could ask for is sitting on the back deck of the home. The old Florida Oak Trees with Spanish moss just add the perfect touch. You will not find another property like this. This is paradise!!
The Tampa Bay area is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and theme parks that every family will enjoy. Whether you have children or not, this home is perfect for a tropical paradise you and your loved ones will enjoy. The pictures do not do this home justice. It is definitely more beautiful in person!!!
Chris and Teresa,
We want to thank you for the time we were able to spend at your home. This place is peaceful and we loved fishing. This is such a beautiful area and the breeze is excellent even in the dead of the summer. We will remember this trip for a long time. We wish for you and your family many years here. This is a paradise.

This house is very well-appointed, good beds, great kitchen, clean, and an unbelievable 180 degree water view. Chris was very kind and efficient answering questions and securing the accommodation. We rented bikes for a week from a shop downtown and had fun exploring the Sponge Docks and the town which is full of antique stores and good restaurants. The 35-mile bike path is safe, flat and easy for us old folks! (We did not ride the whole length!) We were hoping for warmer weather in January, but there's no controlling Mother Nature!
Thank you for sharing your clean, comfortable home with all amenities. Location is very convenient to shopping & Sponge Docks. Lots of good Greek restaurants to enjoy. We rented bikes from Tarpon Tom's for a couple of weeks. Hopefully we get to kayak on our next trip. It was a short bike ride to Sunset Beach & Howard Park, lovely beaches!
Hubby enjoyed fishing off the dock, our pet heron always waiting for dinner. A great place to relax, would highly recommend. Nice quiet area & great neighbors. Gorgeous view from any window or deck.
A big thanks to the owner & his wife for sharing their home, also to Patti for all she did for us.
See you in 2015, Joyce & Don
This is the perfect house on the perfect land in the perfect location with the perfect owner to deal with!
This house is so cool! So cozy. Super views. The lot is amazing with a mammoth live oak and a half circle sea wall with tons of water frontage a dock. It is near a bridge which i was neutral on but it is actually fun to sit and watch the cars and people biking over it and boats going under. I would call it a feature!
Very near the trail for biking and blading and the sponge docs.
Decorated and perfect for relaxing and the owners are super to deal with! See ya next year!
Our stay on this property was for 7 nights and we chose it due to its close proximity to family members we were visiting in Tarpon Springs. The home is in a quiet and peaceful cul de sac and was beautifully decorated, super cozy, clean and comfortable with a homey feel. The kitchen is state of the art, fully equipped and there is a bbq on the deck for use as well. The couch in the sunroom was the perfect spot to relax while taking in the fabulous view out the windows. We spent a lot of time on the deck watching the boats and kayaks go by and my grandson enjoying the swing. We were visited by a Blue Heron, White Ibis, an Egret and watched a Bald Eagle fly low over the water in front of the house. With so much to do in the surrounding areas, I wish we had more time to spend relaxing at the house, but it was the perfect home to return to after a long day out. This property is within walking or kayaking distance to the Sponge Docks. It is very close to Sunset Beach and Fred Howard Park and plenty of restaurants a short distance away. It is only a 30 minute drive to Clearwater with plenty of tourist places to see and a beautiful beach. The Aquarium was a hit with my grandson as he got a chance to see Winter the star of Dolphin Tale. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to friends and family!
I stayed for 2 wks in March: one week with a group of paddling friends (& my husband) and the 2nd week with one other friend. It was wonderful to have such a clean, comfortable,lovely home to return to, after paddling. Although weather was a bit chilly when we visited, we managed to enjoy lunch on the deck on a couple of days. We had a heron come up to the deck on a couple of mornings. to visit us. It's in an excellent location: I could paddle in the bayous or follow the channel out towards the Sponge Docks or towards the bay. The owner provided wonderful customer service, promptly arranging to have a kitchen knife set and tea kettle available to us, when we asked. A bonus was meeting the next door neighbour, a very kind and friendly gentleman.
It would have been handy to have another bathroom, but the 6 of us coped very well in that first week. I would definitely recommend this property, for a quiet peaceful stay or as a focal point for other activities in and around Tarpon Springs.
This lovely house is waterfront ,with dolphin and manatee right there. It is a quiet setting that is close to beaches.The bayous connect making it ideal for kayaks and paddle boarding. The owners were great and we really loved the area. The sponge docks are within easy walking distance as are restaurants.
Very peaceful, with nature and very relaxing.
