You can fish right out your back door or pick up something to grill from the one of several fresh fish markets.

Our home is located in Tarpon Springs, one of the best-kept cultural secrets in Florida. It is one of the largest Greek communities outside of Greece and listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. Its yearly calendar is filled with Greek festivals, street dancing, music, beach concerts, and wine walk events. Just a few minutes by boat will take you to the beautiful open water of the Gulf of Mexico, where you may visit Anclote Key and its famous lighthouse immortalized by singer Bertie Higgins. here you can hike, snorkel, collect shells, list the lighthouse or just relax on an island maintained in its pristine and natural condition. Other beaches in the area are the equally lovely Honeymoon Island,and Caledesi Island State park, and Clearwater Beach, which is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in the US. If you are a golfer the famous Innisbrook Golf Course is right up the road as well as many other Golf Courses.

About the owner: We live in South Dakota but wanted to purchase a home in Florida to have for a winter get-away in the cold winter months. We decided about 6 years ago to share our home with others who may want to enjoy the comforts and space of a home while on vacation.
My husband and I grew up in Mpls. MN. He was the track and cross country coach at SDSU for 25 years, I enjoyed a home based cosmetic business. We have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren who love to come visit us while we are at our Florida home.
Why this property? We purchased this home because we wanted a home that was on the water, had a pool, and a home large enough to have our children and grandchildren all come visit at the same time. We love the open bright floor plan, the beautiful private backyard and private pool, and the quiet island neighborhood. It is close enough to get to all the Disney theme parks and Busch Gardens as well as beautiful big beaches, or our own private local beaches.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you allow pets
We may allow a very well behaved pet
Can I stay for less than 30 days
We had a nice stay at this Tarpon Springs home. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 children - definitely a better option than a hotel. Owners worked with us on our dates, which we appreciated. Had an issue with the pool, but the owners were very responsive. Thanks for sharing your home!
