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 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..

Tremendous Week - Comin Back!

  • 5 of 5

If you were looking for a place to get away and not have to take everything you need with you, this is where you need to stay!

Except for a couple of items that we particularly wanted for the beach, everything was there that we needed except for the food in the fridge!

After we arrive, we dropped our bags, sorted our clothes and we're out the door for the beach! The boat was readily available anytime and was immaculate.

We did some super extra cleaning on our way out to try to pay it forward for someone else who's going to have a great stay there as well!

Despite the days of rain that we simply could not have predicted, the stay was still completely wonderful! The bed was very comfortable everything in the rental worked and anytime we needed the representative he was always available!

I really wish I could say more about it besides how great it was true, but I simply do not have the words! It is definitely something you need to see for yourself!

Call made getting our dates super easy despite the fact it was tough because of our schedule! Thank you Paul and we look forward to seeing you again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words about our vacation "home away from home" We take pride in making the home just the way we would envision it should to be in visiting the Pinellas Sun-Coast of Florida.. When staying with us, you have the best of both, the sandy white beaches on the Gulf of Mexico just minutes away from your front door, or the fresh water lake front "county like" setting with a pontoon boat to use! We hope you all found your way back home safely and you come back and visit us again. Enjoy the rest of your summer! Paul & Karen

Peaceful stay at Tarpon Villas

  • 5 of 5

Our recent two wk stay at Tarpon Villas was a peaceful experience. The condo was clean and comfortable; cable tv and wifi worked wonderfully. The pool was very close and the hot tub was well used. The "ONLY " complaint--which really isn't a complaint-- was the resident squawking bird every morning singing his "lovely" (aka painful) song! LOL!!! We actually did miss his presence when he was awol for a day or two but he quickly made up for lost time! It was nice to hear different bird sounds and even seeing three alligators in the water one day!

In general, this condo was clean, quiet and very peaceful. We had a wonderful stay here. Thank you Paul and Karen! From Adrian and Lori, Ottawa, Canada

Needs to be updated.

  • 3 of 5

Living-room furniture needs to be replaced/updated. Carpet needs to be stretched to avoid tripping hazard.

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??

Lake Tarpon is approximately five miles long and three miles wide. Lake Tarpon is known for one of the best bass fishing lakes in the state. The lake is perfect for bass fishing. This condominium is one of 40 units and is secluded from the busy Gulf beaches yet close to shopping malls, restaurants, Golfing and Disney Resorts. Come visit the famous 'Winter the dalphin' from the movie Dalphin Tail and Dalphin Tail 2, located at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
