About Paul & Karen
I hale from Chicago Illinois (1985) and have been in the Military & Law Enforcement field for most of my career. I started a Yacht Management, Transport and Training business in the Tampa Bay area. My wife Karen, in the Insurance field, originated from Tennessee, but has been in Florida since childhood. Karen and I are retired from our career jobs now and want to focus on adding additional condo's and homes to our rental vacation business.
Paul & Karen purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Paul & Karen chose Palm Harbor
Lake Tarpon Villas is unique in many ways. It has the peacefulness of a romantic getaway on Lake Tarpon but it is nestled in one of the most beautiful beach areas in the country. You can fresh water fish out your back door in one of the best bass fishing lakes in the state, or head to the fishing docks in Tarpon Springs and Clearwater Beach where you can hop on a deep sea fishing boat to catch the big ones! You are within driving distance to Busch Gardens, Sea World and Disney World. The city of Tampa is just a drive over the causeway with many venues you would seek in a larger city. Beach life, entertainment and fine dining in the Florida Suncoast. What more could you ask for! http://www.youtube.com/embed/iaf8LRKqVK8?rel=0

Weather couldn't have been any better
Great vacation for the month of January. Record breaking high temps made it perfect. Condo was good and in a convenient location. Boat was an added bonus!
Karen and Paul have thought of everything! Their place felt as if we lived there. We didn't need anything other than groceries to enjoy our stay. The pontoon boat was fun as we were able to dock at a lake front restaurant for dinner. The condo is very quiet, private, and relaxing with a decent view.
Downtown Tarpon Springs is within 3 miles and is packed full of shops and river tours. This is a great way to spend some quality time with family.
The three of us enjoyed our stay so much that we really look forward to a return stay in the future.
Thanks Karen & Paul.
Thanks for your kind response to our vacation home. Karen and I always place an effort to have everything imaginable for our guests staying with us. We are so glad you had a great, relaxing time. Please come back and visit again.!
Safe travels back home..
Paul & Karen
woud love to live here...
Except due to neck issues would not be able to reach dishes :)
Beautiful place - and except for rainy cold week - need to come back in a sunnier, warmer time...
Renovations and roof repair caused me to stay elsewhere
When we arrived, there were workmen on the roof directly over the unit we were to stay in. Music was playing. They were yelling and throwing empty boxes off the roof. They were using power equipment to prepare to install new roof tiles. We went to a resort rather than occupy the property. The owners refused to return my money, however they offered an opportunity to use the property when it was available at a later date.
We are sorry you both had to experience arriving with the roof replacement. We arrived after you left and and inspected the complex for noise and roofers during the week and there was none seen or heard. The roof was to be complete prior to your arrival but the unusual rain we had delayed the roofing project. We will always make amends with our guests
to make sure they have a good experience. We received your return in April 2020 and we hope you can have a good experience upon your return.

Home away from home on Lake Tarpon
Clean, had everything you would need; owners thought of everything for travelers. Decorated nice to make you feel relaxed! And a pontoon on the lake to use also! The Tarpon Turtle restaurant on the lake was great. Good food, music and Monkey Butter! If we’re ever back in this area, will definitely reach out to stay again!
Great location. Close to retail but tucked away in a peaceful lakeside setting. Great owners!
