About Diane Underwood
My husband and I grew up in Mpls. We moved to SD where he taught and coached at SDSU and I had a home based business. We are now retired and spend part of our year in SD and part in Florida. We love to travel, boating, kayaking, hiking, and spending time with our 4 beautiful grandchildren.
Diane Underwood purchased this House in 2006
Why Diane Underwood chose Tarpon Springs
After looking at properties throughout this area we came upon this beautiful home the day it went on the market. We fell in love it it. The open floor plan, bright surroundings and quiet neighborhood. When looking out any of the sliding doors or sitting on the deck we look over a canal that goes into Anclote River which is a short distance to the Gulf of Mexico. What we loved most was there are no homes across our canal. You look out at beautiful green trees and palm trees and see much wild life. We are from SD with wide open spaces this felt like home to us.
What makes this House unique
We leave 2 kayaks here along with paddles and life jackets for you to use at your leasure. Best place to put them in the water is in our common area. You can also take them to Howard Park where they have beautiful Kayak trails you can go through or the new Kayak ramp just up the road at the waterpark on the river.

Needed a quiet getaway
This beautiful house is nestled in a small beautiful little neighborhood. Quiet and peaceful, yet located close enough to plenty of things to do. If we head back to the Tampa area would definitely consider staying there again!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. We look forward to having you come back. Happy New Year. May it be filled with good health and happiness in your family
Can't Wait to Return
Staying in this beautiful home was so much better than any hotel or resort I have ever been. The environment was so peaceful and relaxing. Everyone on the vacation had their own space and yet we still had space to gather as well. The neighborhood is quiet and just overall lovely and the water is so peaceful. This house is close to so many interesting places. Although the beaches and Greek village are not in walking distance, the drive is less than 5 minutes in most cases
A Girl's Trip Celebrating 60th Birthdays!!
This is a lovely home located in a quiet neighborhood in Tarpon Springs. The perfect place for a Girls Getaway!! The back patio and pool is a very pretty and private setting that overlooks a canal. Many hours were spent by our party of 7 relaxing poolside. In the evenings, we enjoyed the open concept kitchen and living room areas! Perfect set up for the 7 of us to all sit together and visit. The house is as nice as depicted in the photos. Very clean! All correspondence with the owner was pleasant and answered in a timely manner. The house is located very close to many bars and restaurants that are on the water. We enjoyed Captain Jacks, Rusty Bellies, and Miss Vickies!! We will definitely be coming back!!
So glad you and your friends enjoyed our home We will welcome you back anytime!!
