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!

What makes this condo unique

Pick sunshine in freshwater or saltwater... It is here for you and your family to enjoy..

Villa on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location ! We had a great time at the Tarpon Villas on Lake Tarpon. Anywhere you wanted to go was easily accessible beaches, restaurants, parks for walking, shopping etc. The condo was comfortable and large enough for a two month stay.

Having the boat was a definite plus, it was clean and ran well. It gave us the opportunity see the lake from a different perspective. We definitely would go back if available.

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.

Relaxing week of bass fishing, beach bumming, and dining out

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Karen are great hosts and available locally if you have any problems. We didn't. Each morning while sipping coffee on the patio we discussed the day's big decision: should we go boating and bass fishing on Lake Tarpon, or take the short drive to one of the area's beautiful beaches? Fishing was best working Texas-rigged crawlers around Tarpon's big weed beds. Our favorite beach was Honeymoon Island State Park (Dunedin). If you go, don't leave before enjoying a sumptuous meal at Mike's Sushi & Saki Bar. It doesn't sound authentic, but it is.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review! Our special place surprises most guests straying with up. Relaxing it is!! Fish when and where you want in your own pontoon boat.The white sandy beaches are within minutes so you have the best of both worlds! Thanks again and come back and see us soon! Paul & Karen

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place. The owners where very helpful in familiarizing you with the pontoon boat and its operation. The condo has may extras, pool & beach toys, fishing poles, cleaning supplies, toiletries ,kitchen supplies, coffee, various other items. Pool was convenient and slightly cooler than we are use to. The hot tub could use some help.There is a small electric grill on the patio but we did not use it.Getting the pontoon in & out does take some skill but the average boat owner should have no problem.All amenities worked well, ceiling fans, A/C ,TVs(tvs in both bedrooms and living room). Priced right

Great property for a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and well kept. Loved being able to see some water from the balcony. The boat was awesome to use. We were able to go up to a nice little restaurant on the lake by boat for lunch one day and we're able to go out fishing one evening. So much fun!! Thank you guys for a great vacation!
