Tropical Pool / Water Front Paradise

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 4, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

GUESTS arriving at Holiday House don't mind if owners Jim and Judy aren't around to greet them personally, Mother Nature is happy to oblige. Outside this 1600 sq. ft. rental on the Anclote River, (five minutes north of Tarpon Springs and 40 minutes from St. Pete and Tampa Airport) seagulls soar overhead and dolphins and manatees cavort in warm waters below. Lizards and butterflies in the gardens surprising visitors with an impromptu appearance on the deck, dock or pool lanai.

Holiday House invites quests to enjoy the tropical surroundings at a deliciously relaxed pace. Judy and Jim have decorated this dream cottage for people desiring an island experience. This colorful dwelling is perched on a wide river curving west to the gulf in an undisturbed nature. The view with sun glissoning on the water in the morning is only rivaled by the palm trees and fresh grapefruit juice.

A stained glass door opens to a colorful interior which features a well equipped kitchen, a living room that has fantastic views of the water and a solar heated pool . Two master bedrooms with t.v., pillow-top hotel mattresses, new linens, private bathrooms, as colorful as the rest of this house. The game room has a new full-size pool table. The comfortable couch has a queen size bed hidden inside for extra quest.

Holiday offers a wealth of outdoor activities, only limited by your imagination. Water, sky, land, any sport of you ability. Bikes, fishing poles are in the garage. A 9-hole golf course, restaurant is within walking distance. When you are on the property you really have your own part of paradise to enjoy. The comment we receive most often is, "It's better than the photographs!"

All the theme parks that one has always visited in Florida with fun in mind, including Tarpon Springs, which is the home of the famous sponge docks and plentiful shops, restaurants, boating is right at your fingertips. The white sandy beaches where you can find shells galore, and state owned parks are only minutes away. You can always find a boat to rent.

Our vacation home is kid friendly, sorry no pets, and smoking is limited to the outdoors areas. Come to Florida, we are ready with our Key West cottage for your Holiday.

Review #6149908 A Little Bit of Paradise



My husband and I would recommend this beautifully decorated vacation home to families and couples. Clean, well supplied, lacking nothing. The enclosed, screened in area with pool was so comfortable. Both sun and shade provided. Quite private with the lagoon in the back of property. Close to all amenities. We visited the wonderful aquarium in Tampa. Lots of family style restaurants in area. We even tried pool in the game room. We are making our reservation for 2014.

GREAT VACATION HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 5 weeks at this wonderful vacation home and have already decided to return next winter. This home is beautifully decorated, super clean, has everything to make you feel at home (including a crockpot), and the owners are friendly and gracious. We really felt "at home" during our entire stay. We highly recommend this rental to others looking for a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable time in Florida.

We stayed in this wonderful house for 9 days. The house was very well maintained, comfortable, and clean. We traveled with two teenagers and made full use of the pool, pool table and fishing right off the dock. The decor and flowers are lovely; the pictures here really don't do it justice and the sunrises over the river are breathtaking. Jim was extremely easy to work with and even called to check on us when we were running late at check in and when the weather got bad.

We found it convenient to shopping and eating out. The neighborhood was quiet and we were completely comfortable our entire visit. We will definitely stay here again if we return next year. Thank you!

We stayed in this lovely home for 9 days while we were in town for a church retreat. The house was clean and comfortable, well maintained, and stocked with everything we needed. Jim even called to check on us a couple of times :) The pool and pool table were used by all and really enjoyed. We traveled with two teenagers and everyone had their own space and had a great time. We also enjoyed fishing right off the dock. The neighborhood is quiet and we were very happy there. Also it was convenient to shopping and eating out. If we return next year we will definitely rent again. Jennifer Head

Even better than the photos!

This house was perfect! For just a little more than what a hotel in the area would have cost, my son and I were able to each have our own room and bathroom, cook our own meals (saved so much money that way), and enjoy a quiet environment. The pool area was gorgeous, we used it multiple times a day (although one word of warning: As Jim will tell you, the "noseeems" get through the screens and bite...do everything and anything you can to avoid getting bitten by those things: Read up on the particular insect repellents that will be effective before you travel). We got eaten alive and I'm still suffering from the bites, I must have gotten at least 100! Anyway, the BBQ was great too; one evening we invited our friends who live in the area over for a pool party, and it was so nice to be able to "play host" (something you wouldn't be able to do at a hotel of course). The house itself was immaculate, and all the amenities were perfect. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen had everything one would need to make a meal. Jim was great, so kind and helpful. I had to contact him a couple of times with random questions, and he was quick to answer my e-mails/calls. We feel so lucky to have found this place, highly recommended! We'll be back next year!

Owner's Response: We have to admit that sometimes the noseeems can be a bit nasty. We supply a repellent that does work but if you don't use it knowwhatImean !

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This is a very nice small house located in a quiet neighborhood. The house is spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and has everything you need for a great vacation. It is centrally located no more than 45 minutes from some of Florida's best beaches and natural areas. We especially liked the beach at Sand Key and kayaking on the Weeki Wachee river. Highly recommended!
