Why Kids Love It
Kids can't get enough of the pool! The large deck is great for a family fishing day right in your backyard! Kayaking on the river is also a great activity that the little ones love. House is stocked with many games and toys for them to enjoy.
Holiday, FL is a small town which has a central location in the Tampa Bay area, very close to attractions in Clearwater, Tampa, and Neighboring Tarpon Springs!
The neighborhood of Forest Hills where this home is located, is a quiet well-kept subdivision with many other river homes. The Neighborhood has its own golf course, the Forest Hills Golf and Country Club, where you can enjoy a game of golf, and have a great cheeseburger at the clubhouse!
Attractions Within Walking Distance
The Forest Hills Golf and Country Club is a mere 1-mile from the property by car. It is about a 10 minute walk.
Favorite Places To Eat
We love Rusty Bellies Waterfront Grill, and Cody's Original Roadhouse in neighboring Tarpon Springs.
Howard Park Beach in Tarpon Springs is a wonderful beach that locals love. Parking is $5 for the entire day. We highly recommend it!

The house was perfect! Beds were comfy, kitchen well stocked. Lots of pool accesories, beach umbrellas, bicycles. We loved it! Only 2 negatives, pool cleaner never showed for the week, the pool needed attention. And the neighbor told us they had seen a 12 foot alligator in the lake. You can kayak but dont swim! We didnt see any alligators. Everything else was perfect. Loved it!

Very comfortable and well stocked rental for our family get together. We also enjoyed the air hockey, pool volleyball and fishing from the huge dock. I enjoyed the separate master on the opposite side of the house for a quiet night sleep. The driveway provided ample parking which was very convenient.

The home was lovely. Clean, bright and comfortable.The pool was wonderful.I just walked out the back door and went swimming. The view of the river was calming and the deck was spacious. I plan on returning every year. There were no problems,but the owner was very friendly and reachable.
Perfect for our family vacation!

My family rented this home for a week long vacation and family reunion. It was wonderful. The house is bright and clean and the pool was fabulous! We were pleasantly surprised because this was our first experience renting a vacation home. We plan to rent this home again the next time we come down to Florida!

This house is spotless and very well equipped. It is very quiet and child and senior citizen friendly. I spent the winter there and have reserved the house for next winter.

Impeccably clean on arrival and was comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for a month's stay.
The pool and deck were very nice and we had avian visitors as well as manatee swim by. The manager was nearby and was knowledgeable about the property and answered any questions we had.

This was a beautiful and clean home. It has everything you could ever need and want. The back deck and pool are so peaceful. Our 3 year old son was in heaven the entire week. Carol, the property manager always got back to me on time and answered all my questions. She made sure we had a great experience. We can't wait to come back very soon.

Excellent Holiday Home

The house and amenities were perfect. The place is very well maintained and everything (plus some) of what you would need for a vacation. We had 4 adults, with the 3 bedroom and couch setup was perfect. The pool is great, nice back yard on the canal and nature. The location is a little north of Clearwater, but well worth the value and accommodations. Would recommend the house to others. Thank You for a great vacation home.

My overall experience was a good one.. Right there on the water made for easy access to fishing.. Was told there were poles, there wasn't .. Not a big deal we went and got some.. It has a very "beachy" feel to it.. Didn't need to bring anything to enjoy our stay. The WiFi however, worked when it wanted to causing us to run up data a tad.. Other the WiFi, we had a pretty good experience.. Thanks for having us...

Nice and relaxing
Spent 2 weeks and the weather was great , we fished from the deck caught a bunch of fish. seen manatees in the mornings. the house was well kept very comfortable. the only complaint was nothing to do with the house, the first 4 days we were there the love bugs were kind of a menace. I understand that around the first week of May they swarm. They don't bite or anything like that but they were numerous. any week but the first week of May I would go back. the Family Loved it. after the love bugs quit swarming.
