review Katrina Scaglione

Tarpon Springs, FL (previously Easley SC)

Home away from Home

My stay at Esperia was wonderful. All I needed was to bring my food, everything you need is at the house. I really can't think of anything that Leslie did not have which made my stay very comfortable. I was only supposed to be there for a month or two while I was house hunting. It turned into five months and Leslie was very gracious to extend my stay for me. I think one of the cool parts of staying there is that it is located within walking distance of the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs. Plenty of restaurant's to walk to and shops to visit. I would highly recommend Esperia to be your home away from home while visiting Florida!
