About the Property
Stay in a beautiful waterfront home with a private heated pool and hot tub. A canoe is provided for guest use and exploring the uninhabited wildlife islands out back. Watch dolphins and manatees, as well as fishing and pleasure boats. This well cared for and maintained home sits in a small neighborhood of private homes on Anclote Island--just a 1/4 mile from downtown Tarpon Springs. Tarpon is a Greek fishing community and a cultural treasure with many historical registry homes. Master bedroom downstairs opens up to the pool and waterfront, and has an attached bath suite with seamless shower and garden tub with jets. Flat screen tv and queen mattress. Upstairs balcony bedroom has queen mattress and waterfront second story view. Additional bedrooms are perfect for kids and teens with bunks and twin beds. The bunk bedroom is lofted next to a library area stocked with books and it is also lofted to the great room below. There are two additional full bathrooms--one upstairs and one downstairs which opens to the pool. The patio has a full size gas grill and plenty of outdoor seating, and also includes an expansive waterfront backyard with outdoor fire pit for rare Florida chilly evenings. Both pool and hot tub may be heated at guest discretion. The kids will find rafts, sand toys and pool toys.
The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of cookware and stainless appliances--including a gas stove. There are all the necessities such as blender, coffee maker, ice cream maker, and more that make a kitchen a well-functioning kitchen! Wine glasses, plenty of dishes and servers, and a formal dining area for 8. A breakfast counter in the great room is perfect for quick bites. From here, guests can watch the flatscreen tv or sit on the conversation pit styled sofa.
A laundry room is located just off the kitchen and guests will also find fishing poles, nets, bait bucket, some sports equipment, and more, as well as ironing board and iron, and port-a-crib.
This house really has it all for your vacation get-away but feel free to call with questions or special needs.
Tarpon Springs has loads to do--good restaurants and plenty of shopping. Greek gifts and food, an antiquing district with charming brick streets. Victorian homes line the Craig Bayou where the Epiphany Celebration takes place each January. The exceptional Howard Park is a beautiful Gulf Coast Beach, and Sunset Beach has free concerts one Thursday a month. Night in the Islands fills the Sponge Dock streets one Saturday a month with al fresco dining and Greek street dancing. Charter and fishing boats are available, as are excursion boats. Anclote Key just offshore is not to be missed! It is a pristine island for beaching with working lighthouse.
Tampa is approximately 30 minutes east, Clearwater Beach about 40 minutes south, and Orlando about 1-1/2 hours east. Innisbrook Golf is about 10 minutes south and Tarpon has a city golf course as well. Walkers and bikers will enjoy the Pinellas Trail just 1/2 mile from the home and covers over 30 miles of trails. So much to do and yet Tarpon Springs contains the quiet ambiance of a homey beach town. It is truly one of the best kept secrets in Florida. I have a return guest rate of 20-30%.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
We really enjoyed our stay here.
Awesome family retreat!
We rented this home with another family. 8 of us were very comfortable. We have rented homes in Florida before and this place is a gem. Most homes just feel like homes in a subdivision whereas this place is a natural oasis. The pool overlooks the water and was fun watching the boats go by and the dolphins swimming by. Very close to the little tourist downtown and some great restaurants. Tarpon Springs is a cute little tourist town, much different than larger suburban cities. Only downside is not a great area for walking. Very small community and a busy road with no sidewalks if you want to walk to town.

Thank you for your lovely review about our home. I am sorry the walkability into town was a problem for you. I didn't realize you didn't have a car until check out time. This is actually part of what protects the privacy of our island. For future guests without cars, know that UBER can get you into town for about $4.00. Tarpon Springs is a great little town and there is a fun and inexpensive trolley that runs around town as well. Thanks to these guests for this helpful comment.
Family Fun in Florida
This relaxing home has so much to offer - we enjoyed the pool, the hot tub, the fire pit and the canoe. The water views are wonderful and the beds are comfortable. The owners are responsive and quick to address any concerns and the location is great- it's close to so much yet gives you the undeniable feeling that you're away from it all. Would definitely stay again!

Thank you, Kyla. And it is so great for us to have such nice guests who take care of our home!! Beckie
What a great home away from home. This property is exactly as advertised and the view on the water spectacular. The 4 bedrooms and 3 baths were perfect for our family’s birthday celebration. We hope to stay there again in the future. Thanks for sharing such a lovely place.
