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.

Just left the yesterday morning (8/19/16) and looking forward to another stay next year. Pleasant view from the living room and then out thru sliding doors to the patio/porch...Everything in the condo works well and the details throughout are "special". We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival to find FM music softly playing and two bottles of wine with glasses sitting on the counter, just waiting to be enjoyed. Lots of entertainment in and near the area, good to great dinning experiences as well as places of interest. Check the sponge dock area, everything Greek.

Thanks guys, we look forward to our next, already confirmed stay.

Boat makes this an excellant value

  • 5 of 5

Just got back (beat the storm out of town)

Wife and I stayed with my daughter and her boyfriend. This condo is conveniently located far enough away from Route 19 to be peaceful but not out of the way

Nice to have supplies already In cabinets.

The use of the boat makes this a great stay. Going across the lake for dinner made the stay seem special

Great time

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit for us and it was just as enjoyable at the first. Condo is spacious and lets us spend quality time with family and entertain, swim, go boating , and fix a big seafood dinner for our family.... it has it all. It is also conveniently located , close to shopping and Tarpon Springs sponge docks which is a must visit for us. It is good to know that we have such a perfect place to stay when we head to Florida for family time.

I'm ready to go back! Truly a paradise living!

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Karen were very accommodating during our stay. They have a beautiful set up and the 2br 2ba condo worked perfectly for us since we had 2 separate couples. Nearly EVERYTHING was provided, all you really need to bring is a toothbrush. There are many area attractions and great restaurants. We did everything from hopped between local brewery's, to shopped at the all the touristy stores, to cruised around on the lake with the boat that was provided. The day that we took the boat out, we ended the evening with dinner at the Tarpon Turtle lake restaurant, which was probably my favorite day out of our entire stay. They had amazing food and bands playing while we there. Our family traveled to Florida to get away from our mid-western lives for a moment and we absolutely enjoyed everything about this place. It truly was "paradise". We really hope that we get the opportunity to go back in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your time here in Lake Tarpon Villas! We enjoyed having you all visit us. We are blessed to have a beautiful property on Lake Tarpon to share with guests visiting from all parts of the world. Our guests do have the best place to stay, having several great beaches on the Gulf of Mexico within minutes from your front door, or just relaxing at your temporary home where you have a poolside view of your boat and lake. It is magical! We hope to see you back for another relaxing stay at our condo. Paul

Great location, nice view and everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great visit with family because our condo was perfect. Nice view, clean and well stocked with everything you need. The pontoon boat really is the icing on the cake. We ate at a lot of restaurants and they were all great. Will recomend Flapjacks for breakfast good food and reasonable prices. Also the Tarpon Turtle grill/marina, conveniently on the north side of the lake, you can dock the pontoon or drive.

Will be going back if we're ever back in the Tampa area. Will also recommend to our family and friends.

From the Owner

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!
