About Mark or Katja
We are a fun-loving family from England who love our home away from home. As we work very hard on our website business we wanted a place to escape to and relax, yet have the choice to be busy and have lots of things to do and see on our doorstep - this is just the perfect place.
Mark or Katja purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Mark or Katja chose Palm Harbor
We wanted to be in the busy Clearwater Beach area of Florida where there is so much to do and see that one vacation is simply not enough, so we never get bored going back year after year. It is also easy enough in just 90 minutes to get to all the theme parks in Orlando but we didn't want to be stuck on a suburban housing development in Orlando with nothing to do but visit the parks. Instead we wanted a home on the gorgeous Florida Gulf Coast in a relaxing and homely part of Florida where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of watching the sun go down on some of the best white sandy beaches in the whole of America. Although we are in an area with so much to do and see, we made sure we bought in a beautiful quiet spot so you can choose from the best of both worlds.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our unique advantage over most normal properties is the superb location on the waters of Lake Tarpon. The boats, decking and palms make this a lovely setting for your dream vacation. You can fish off the decking and see eagles and many other beautiful birds. It is peaceful and tranquil yet the area we are in is full of malls, shops and excellent restaurants - and just minutes from beaches that have been voted the very best in the whole of America (and don't forget that includes Hawaii). Inside the apartments we have made sure they are comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything you need to be able to sit back and relax.

Very nice condo!
We stayed in the 1 bedroom, which was very spacious. It was nice and clean. They had everything we could have needed. Close to beaches. The dock area is beautiful. It is right off of 19 but still gives an “away” feeling. Would book again for sure!
We strive to ensure our guests have the vacation they deserve so we are very pleased to read your lovely feedback! Regards Mark

The one bedroom was perfect for my husband and I. Plenty of room to move around in and we truly enjoyed the view and the lanai. It was close to everything and everywhere we wanted to visit. Ann was great the night the water main broke. She kept us informed about what was going on. Definitely would return.
very nice.. Lanai is the topper.., close to Clearwater, Dunedin, Greek town of Tarpon Springs..
Ann, the manager, is available if you need her, but you probably will not. Thrift store are abundant and ethnic as well as great mom and pop restaurants are all around.. we LOVED one off the beaten place, Davidson’s, for seafood ... but there are many others as well... you will not be disappointed !!
The condo was very clean and in the perfect location to visit the three families located in the area
The quaint Villa and perfect location to Lake Tarpon allowed to enjoy the Florida environment both on the lake as well as the ocean. The proxsimimity to exceptional bike trails gave us many opportunities to explore the local flavor this location has to offer.
Our visit was made especially relaxing by knowing Ann Carlson, other property owner, could help us with any property issue we might have.
Great condo and perfect location- loved looking out the back patio on the lake!
Perfect condo for our needs - we were very pleased with overall unit!
Thank you Lisa for taking the time to write a lovely review. Hope to see you again one day. Regards Mark
