House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

If you are seeking a truly upscale Florida vacation

experience....Here are the Top 10 Reasons Why Your Family Should

Consider Renting This Executive Home

1. VIRTUALLY BRAND NEW HOME. Unlike 99% of the vacation homes

in Florida, Our home is virtually brand new custom construction with

the final touches completed in January 2004. By contrast, most of

the prime Florida waterfront property was developed in the 1950’s,

1960’s and 1970s.


traveling all the way to Florida for vacation most families prefer

to spend the majority of their time enjoying themselves. This is

precisely why you will love our home because unlike the vast

majority of other rental houses where you must pack up the car and

drive to everything, from our home you can walk to almost everything

including: The World Famous Sponge Docks with its fine award

winning restaurants and specialty gift shops, deep-sea fishing

boats, sponge fishing tour boat, Dolphin Watch Island Tour Boat,

Kayak rentals, boat rentals, antique shops, a winery, and historic

district with red brick streets, exquisite victorian homes, art

galleries, day spa, hair salon, scenic Spring Bayou, Craig Park,

Library, tennis courts, a meat market and grocery store, The Scenic

Pinellas Trail (a 37 mile path that runs from Tarpon Springs to St.

Petersburg for walking, jogging, running, biking, rollerblading ),

the Tarpon Spring Trolley which tours the towns most famous

landmarks, and more. Plus, there are two fantastic beaches (Sunset

Beach and Fred Howard Park Beach) within 2 miles of the home.

3. HEATED POOL & SPA. Relax and enjoy your own private heated

Pool & Oversized Spa/Jacuzzi with a decorative brick paver deck.


vacation just anywhere in Florida when you can experience the quaint

and peaceful village of Tarpon Springs, which is listed in the

National Registry of Historic Places. Tarpon Springs is Pinellas

County’s oldest town and was incorporated in 1887. Tarpon Springs

is located in a part of Florida nicked named the Sun Coast as it

averages over 300+ days of sunshine. The town has over 51 miles of

waterfront and an average annual temperature is 72.8 degrees. There

are no highrise hotels and condos in Tarpon to crowd your family

vacation, and there are 2 public beaches and 9 parks in Tarpon

Springs alone.

5. UPSCALE FURNISHINGS. All of the home furnishings are new,

upscale and tastefully decorated in Florida and Palm Tree style.

Again many other rental homes are furnished with older furniture and

outdated décor. The bottom line is your family will feel very

comfortable and right at home.

6. FISHING. No need to drive to the harbor, purchase bait,

rent fishing poles, etc. We have a tournament winning inshore

fishing guide that guests can hire who will pick you up directly

from the dock in the back yard for a day of fishing in the beautiful

Gulf of Mexico. Alternatively, for a less personal experience, you

can spend a day on one of the deepsea charter boats in Tarpon

Springs. There are two boat rental companies in Tarpon if you would

like to try your luck on your own. Lastly, if you like you can fish

off your own private dock with fishing poles that are supplied in

the house.


the small single story boxy block constructed homes of the 1950’s-

1960’s, this home was custom built with a Distinctive Mediterranean

style architecture featuring a tile roof, arches, and columns, high

ceilings, 20” Italian Porcelain Tile, stylish ceiling fans, modern

recessed lighting, large garden tub, two sets of double sinks in two

restrooms, walk in shower, walk-in closets, large upgrade windows

with a water view from every room in the house. The bottom line

here is that is a very upscale vacation experience.

8. BOATING. The home features an empty boat slip so you can

bring your own boat or rent one and keep it directly in your back

yard. The open Gulf of Mexico is just minutes away and nearby

Anclote Key and Caledesi Island are ranked among the top 10 beaches

in the U.S.

9. FANTASTIC KITCHEN. Instead of the small closed-in outdated

kitchens you find in most old florida ranch houses, our home

features a large open plan gourmet kitchen with 42” Cabinets with

crown molding, new GE appliances including Refrigerator, Range,

Microwave, Dishwasher, Washer, and Dryer, AND a 29 Bottle GE Wine

Chiller for cooling your wine to perfection.

10. AWESOME AMENITIES. All you need to bring is your food,

clothes, and personal items. In addition to all the normal

conveniences, our home comes with a Large Sony Flat Screen TV, 2

DVDs, a VCR, Cable TV with 70+ channels, AM/FM & CD Nutone Intercom

System throughout the Home, Security System, Weber gas grill, beach

chairs, 2 golf club sets, 7 bicycles (4 adult bikes and 3 youth

bikes), tennis racquets and balls, fishing poles, and ping pong

table and paddles. If you have small children, we will even provide

items such as a stroller, age appropriate%

Best Family Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
Where do we start....This was a best family vacation we have ever had. The owners (Annica & Stephen) met us at the property and made us feel very welcome. The house was extremely clean and well maintained. We spent a little more to rent this house but as soon as we took the tour we were pleased with our decision.

The house had everything we needed....private heated pool, large spa/jacuzzi, dock, canoe, bikes, table tennis, foosball, wine chiller, 3 TVs, Games, Books, Videos, Music system, great sunset views, etc. My husband and son had great fun catching fish on the dock. We saw some dolphins pass by a couple of times. There were also some pelicans and other marine birds which were interesting. We took a canoe ride and explored the many waterways. My daughter and i enjoyed shopping at the nearby sponge docks. We had a blast the beach at Fred Howard Park. We also rented a boat and highly recommend a trip to Anclote Key which was amazing. We heard the Greek food in Tarpon Springs was famous and we found it lived up its reputation. I don't even want to get on a scale right now!
