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 1998

Why Paul & Karen chose Clearwater Area

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..


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

Good location, be ready to clean.

  • 2 of 5

The condo was in a great location and it was nice to have access to the boat to enjoy the lake. The unit has everything you need. Guests should know up front, though, that in order to get a portion of your cleaning deposit back you have to clean the entire unit before you leave including toilet, kitchen, vacuum entire unit, mop down tile floors, and do laundry if you use more than a few towels. I don't mind cleaning up after ourselves, but it was a bummer to have to spend over an hour cleaning the unit on our last night just to be sure we got a portion of our cleaning deposit back. The real bummer was discovering dirty sheets on the bed our first night there.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review on our property. To be honest, we don't require a vast cleaning as you say, only that our guests pick up after themselves and leave the unit clean, following a simple departure check-list. Our lease fees are very reasonable for what our guests receive and the $150.00 cleaning fee is the standard rate. We have had our share of guests leaving the unit like they would in a motel 6 hotel room. We are sorry you didn't like the sheets on the master bedroom. Those sheets were clean and we provided additional sheets for our guests if they question cleanliness. Maybe it would be best to to stay at the motel 6??

Most welcoming and ideally located

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd visit and definitely not our last!! Apartment most welcoming and contains everything you need for a home from home atmosphere. I especially like the keypad access because you can never loose the keys! An i eal location for all activities. Codys steak house is a local, but a trip to Tarpon Tavern is great for food and music. Good beaches close by and many, many parks. Paul is easily contacted if necessary.

The place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us rent your condo. It was like home from home. The kitchen was fully equipped,and the enormous bed was extremely comfortable. Everything we needed was available down to portable chairs we could take to the local beaches. The temperature of the lovely swimming pool was ideal! We had a really relaxing time in a lovely peaceful area but easy access onto US19 meant it was easy to get to many, many local attractions and restaurants.This was our 2nd visit and I hope not our last.

loved sitting on balcony

  • 5 of 5

Received my deposit check today, thanks Paul. Had a great vacation, everything was provided from beach chairs to cleaning supplies. Loved sitting out on the balcony and watching the birds, there was even a small alligator in the canal. Also saw people catching large fish from the boardwalk. Had a great vacation and would love to revisit in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Alan & Rose, We are glad you had a great relaxing time. We did make some canges after you left. We have new carpeting throughout the unit and have replaced the old TV with a HD 42" flat LCD screen. We even installed a flat screen inside the bedroom. The air conditioning went south and we replaced the unit as well. It is ready for your return! Have a great summer and keep in touch! Paul & Karen
