Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 28 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

If it's relaxing peace and quiet or simply a central place to visit West Central Florida from, this beautiful, well-appointed one-bedroom ground floor condo fills the bill.

The boat docks start right outside your back door and wrap around to the swimming pool and heated jacuzzi.

No matter your passion, from world-class beaches to golf courses the pros play, to big city shopping, you are just minutes away.

The beaches start 15 minutes away and there are ten golf courses within 20 minutes.

Spring Training (Phillies and Blue Jays) is next door in Clearwater, and you can walk and shop the sponge docks just ten minutes away in Tarpon Springs.

Busch Gardens in Tampa is about 30 minutes away and Disney is about 1 1/2 hours. Bike trails crisscross the area.

The kitchen is well furnished with microwave, coffee pot, toaster, blender, and all cooking and eating utensils. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit.

This is truly a turn-key get away!

About Dave Garringer

We are retired small business owners from the fishing industry. We live in the area and have for about 31 years.

Dave Garringer purchased this condo in 1999

Why Dave Garringer chose Clearwater Area

For several years it was our get away place, quiet, neat, and convenient to the things we like.

What makes this condo unique

It's on a quiet boat basin just a couple of minutes from the lake. I love to open the windows on the back porch and watch the water and its creatures with a cup of coffee in the morning.

Owner's Response: Maggie and her family were a joy to meet and stay with us. They loved the pool, spent several days at some of our beautiful beaches and made it over to Orlando. She was very easy to communicate with and left the unit as clean as she found it. We look forward to having these folks stay with us in the future.

Perfect place on the water!

  • 5 of 5

This clean, well-maintained condo was a perfect spot to stay! We were very close to Honeymoon Island State Park as well as the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs. The enclosed patio was a perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee while enjoying a view of the harbor. Dave was exceptionally easy to work with and very personable. We will definitely rent again if we come to the area! Thank you for your hospitality Dave! Ron and Lou Ann

Lake tarpon Villas

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the month of March 2015 in beautiful Palm Harbor. Dave and Nancy are very welcoming hosts who live close by and happily answer any questions. The condo is well equipped and has comfortable furniture. We especially liked the 2 lanais to relax in, we usually had our morning coffee and afternoon cocktail there, overlooking the canal. The use of Dave's boat is an added bonus.

Palm Harbor and Tarpon Springs have many lovely county parks with walking trails, picnic areas and sand beaches. All beaches are within 20 minutes of the condo. There are also several great restaurants to try - some favourites - Tarpon Turtle, Bon Appetit, Captain Jack's - all on the water for great outdoor dining.

We look forward to returning soon. John and Nancy, Prince Edward County, Ontario
