My husband and I spent two weeks at this condo in 10/09 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The condo was sparkling clean and had many extras that made our visit enjoyable - beach toys, beach towels, hair dryers, etc. The pool was great as was the hot tub. The pontoon that came with the condo was a lot of fun and the little alligator that lived in the canal was fun to watch.

Perfect for a small group of 4 or less

I rented for ten days to spend a week with my best friends who I meet with every year at a rental property usually on or very near the water. This condo was perfect for the three of us and then also when the friends left and my daughter and son-in-law for the Memorial Day weekend. The condo is not large but it is VERY well equipped, comes with a wonderful pontoon boat for the easily qualified boater, and is well maintained and true to the photos. One word of advice: unless you work for a professional cleaning company, don't bother trying to clean the unit at your departure to redeem the $150 cleaning fee. I tried and did what I thought was required only to be disappointed. Treat the cost of the cleaning fee as part of the rental and save the time for enjoying the local restaurants, pool or boat. I would also not recommend swimming in Lake Tarpon as it not only home to many snowbirds but also alligators. I was told it was safe to swim in the middle or deepest part of lake...the pool was fine! friends and I not only found that everything we needed was already provided to start the vacation: toilet paper, towels, soaps, coffee, seasonings, a fully-equipped kitchen, dvd's, cd's, plastic bags, etc, etc. There are even unopened bottles of wine in the kitchen which we did not partake (we actually left a bottle od Zin) because we did not know if they are there for use gratis or if we would be dinged from our remaining deposit. We had brought our own wines, but it would be helpful to let renters know.
We did visit several restaurants including Rusty Bellies, Costa's, Berns (Tampa)for our steaks, Cody's Roadhouse on 19 (ask for Melissa's station and tip her well!) and a cute Hawaiian breakfast/lunch place on Orange St at the west end of Tampa Rd. It's great for vegetarians and also if you have a pet along (though renters are not permitted to bring pets to the condo). We left their menu with the others in the condo. If you are looking for really inexpensive, good Italian food there is a place at the beginning of the Sponge Docks across the street from the first boat tour yellow ticket hut (on the right) and at the back of the parking lot. We took takeout meatball and eggplant parm heroes with us on the boat and for $6.95 ea. they were great as was that boat tour company. They have the highest rating and deservingly so.

Owner's Response: Thanks William for submitting a review on our vacation rental. Karen and I take great pride in providing our guests with a memorable experience. The condo is in a prime location to do anything you desire as you have addressed in your review. The complimentary wine is placed on the counter for our guests to have.
We are sorry that you were upset about not receiving your full deposit back. The cleaning guideline in several places inside the unit. It addresses what you need to do to receive your full deposit back. No professional cleaning service is needed if you take the time to clean the unit.
We return 98% of our deposits where our guests take the time to clean. You will find that most vacation rentals take a cleaning fee without the option to self-clean. We give our guests that option to safe them money.

Thanks for staying with us and have a great summer!

Excellent vacation property

  • 5 of 5
We highly recommend staying at this condo--very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The covered deck has a pleasant view--true to the pictures--and we enjoyed our happy hours there each day. We had the pleasure of meeting Paul and taking a nice boat ride on the beautiful lake. Our visit included going to the Sponge Docks village a few miles away--great place to spend an afternoon browsing the many shops, taking a harbor cruise and eating at one of the many Greek restaurants--our favorites being Costas and Rusty Bellies. Location is great for many FL attractions. Hope to visit again and stay at this property.

Rental Condo Villa as good as advertised!

My wife and I found the Tarpon Villa condo just as described
in Pauls advertisement. This condo is in a great location for
visiting such unique cities such as Dunedin, Palm Harbor,
Safety Harbor, Clearwater, Tarpon Springs, Oldsmar and New Port Richey. You also can fish or take a leisurely ride
in the pontoon on Tarpon Lake. We had several requests for
Paul and he handled them quickly and professionally. I would
definitely recommend this condo to any of my family and friends.

2 month stay 1/1/11 thru 2/28/11

Owner appears friendly. Was difficult to get in touch. Seems he was out of area for most of time. Unit is attractive, but had problems w/cockroaches first 2 weeks. I had to spray every day for 2 weeks. Talked to other unit renters/owners and they had no problem. Also boat was included in rental but was not available for use until after 2/15/11. Thought I should have gotten a small refund but just got email asking if we wanted to rent the following year! Location is great and neighbors very friendly. Would rent in this area again but not from these owners!

Owner's Response: We are sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. Karen & I do everything possible to see that all concerns & needs are meet in a timely fashion. I am not sure why the late response since you did stay with us at the beginning of the year but I reviewed our email trail and all of them were responded to the same day. The boat was made available to you right away and I have one dated 1/22 from you stating that "the boat was running GREAT” So I am not sure where the 2/15 date comes from. I believe the problem was with the battery, I am not sure if something was left on that drained it but it was handled via cell phone while I was out of the area from 1/17-21st. I had someone come out and change out the battery. Mechanical breakdown is something we have no control over and there is no extra charge for the boat.

As far as the palmetto bugs NOT cockroaches. We regularly spay and keep the unit very clean as you can see from past reviews, although we have no control over how things are kept when we have long term guests. Florida's climate is subtropical and palmetto bugs, love bugs, mosquitoes, Lizards, snakes, no-see-ems & alligators can be a nuisance but they come hand ands hand with our BEAUTIFUL TROPICAL WARM SUNNY CLIMATE.

Karen and I having been running this unit as a vacation rental since 2003 providing countless wonderful family vacations for people all over the world. We are truly sorry yours was not one of them and we hope that you are able to find a place that meets your expectations next winter.

Appreciated the decor. Not the usual boring kind you usually find. The condo could not have been any cleaner, comfortable, serene but close to lots to do. While we took advantage of sitting on the lanai in comfortable chairs we even got some good photos of birds and the little alligator in the canal.
We certainly indulged in the pool & hot tub. Several times we had them all to ourselves. If you failed to bring something, no worries, they had it there for you. What a plus to have such a nice and clean pontoon boat at your your disposal and I appreciated the filtered water.
We ate out every day at a different place. We visited four museums and went on several of the nature trails.
The condo certainly gets our stamp of approval.
