About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 9 Sleeps

Private Anclote Island only minutes from downtown Tarpon Springs, this home has it all.

This beautiful tropical private island home has gorgeous views of a protected island, a private beach at low tide, a private pool with jacuzzi, and gulf access. Anchor your boat right behind the house! Relax in this paradise home or enjoy the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks within walking distance. Take out the canoe, fish, swim, enjoy a barbecue, or relax around the pool with a cool drink while basking in the Florida Sun. There is even a family-friendly fire ring for backyard bonfires!

This four bedroom jewel has a master suite downstairs with bay windows facing the water, a flat screen tv,a jacuzzi tub, his and her sinks, and a sliding door leading to the waterfront pool and lanai. A stunning waterview from the second story balcony compliments a bedroom upstairs with queen bed and double closets. Two other bedrooms upstairs round out the sleeping arrangements with a lofted bedroom on one end and a bedroom with twins next door for the fourth bedroom. The three upstairs bedrooms open onto a mini library with internet connection and tv area with movies--a great hang out spot for the kids. If you MUST stay connected while on vacation, there is wireless internet throughout the house. The home boasts three full bathrooms; one upstairs, and two downstairs, including a pool bath.

The formal dining room seats 8 if you want to dine formal, and both the family room and dining room are tiled in marbled ceramic.

The great room is spacious and perfect for entertaining, with cathedral ceilings, a gas fireplace, a wine and buffet area, stocked with glasses and dishware for any occasion. All first floor rooms enjoy a picturesque view of the water. Sliding doors with screens open onto the backyard where you are sure to spend most of your time. Just beyond the pool and backyard firepit, a gentle slope of land leads down to the water where you can catch crabs or fish, while watching shrimp and sponge boats glide by on their way out to sea. If your luck at fishing is bad, pop around the corner and pick up a fresh seafood dinner from one of the many restaurants or fresh seafood markets. And while you're at it, grab some freshly baked Greek pastries for dessert in the largest Greek community outside of Greece, steeped in rich culture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was a wonderful place to return to, after a hard day of paddling.

Spa & pool were rejuvenating. Such relaxing breezes in the evening. Bonus to have shallow access to the water!

Henry & I enjoyed the beautiful master suite. One of the most relaxing homes that we've rented. Thank you - from Fanny & Henry & friends, Canada.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful area! We traveled to FL for our family vacation and other family members drove down to meet us from TN. There was plenty of room for everyone. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. The pool was amazing and we loved watching the boats go by every day. Beckie was a delight to work with and we hope to stay at this lovely home again!

Great House, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My 4 sisters and I spent 5 nights at the house. It was very nice and we had lots of room. My sister brought 3 kayaks. We made good use of the canoe that was included. We explored the river, we saw a sting ray and dolphins while we were on the river. We almost made it to the gulf, we had so much fun!

Awesome stay at the Tarpon House.....

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in Tarpon Springs kayaking, biking, boating, swimming, shopping. Beckie and Fran were great to work with. Great house close to everything. Watched the boats go in and out of the harbour. The accommodationstore were great with no issues at all. Great quite neighborhood. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub daily. Saw dolphins and a manatee right off the back yard. Would highly recommend for a family or just adults.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

Travelled to Florida to bring together our extended families for a week in the Clearwater / Tarpon Springs area. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 3 teens and we had a very comfortable stay in terms of sleeping. My brother's family of 5 stayed elsewhere, but we were close enough to get together during the day or evenings for everyone to spend time in the house. Even with 6 adults, 3 teens, 2 kids and a baby, there was enough space in the living room/kitchen/patio area for everyone to hang out and not feel cramped together.

I'd never done anything like this before so I went over the reviews again and again. I was hoping for the best but fearing the worst. Fran was awesome to get back to me with answers to any questions and helped settle my mind. The week of the trip, everything went wonderfully. I was able to dismiss any complaints about cleanliness immediately.

We all enjoyed the pool and the area attractions. The house was clean, well furnished, and even better than described. Any small issues we had were quickly attended to. We didn't have the opportunity to use the canoe, but having that as an option is great! We never messed with the hot tub at all (Florida Summer) but the pool was fantastic!

Fran is very up front about house rules and expectations. I suggest reading and abiding by them - in particular, the schedule for trash pickup.

The sponge docks are fun but very aimed at tourists. The Greek pastry is fantastic and if I have one recommendation above any others - eat more pastry! Seriously, you'll miss it when you leave and you'll look back longingly :) Also, Sunset Beach is about a 10-minute drive. It has some of the clearest water I've ever seen and free parking as well (a rarity in Florida I came to learn).

We are hoping to have the opportunity for this to be a yearly thing for us. No regrets at all (other than that pastry thing)!
