Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Tarpon Springs, Florida your home away from home

The coastal city of Tarpon Springs is named after the many tarpon sport fish which can be found just offshore. The city was developed as a winter resort in the 1880s and actually evolved around the natural sponges which are found in the area. The many Greek immigrant sponge divers and their boat crews created a demand for docks and eating places and curious visitors came to Tarpon Springs to buy the sponges. Still known as the “Sponge Capital of the world”, this charming and historic town has around 100 local shops and galleries and plenty of restaurants overlooking the docks and waterfront. It makes an interesting base for a vacation home in Florida, close to the beaches and many attractions.

She was absolutely miserable and her doc wanted us to start the meds right away and it was apparent that we would NOT be starting our vacation the next day. Stephen and Annica were extremely understanding and they told us to "get better and come when you can!". Once my daughter was over the flu they worked with us to arrange a new vacation date, all at no additional cost. I only wish the airlines were as accomodating :) The house is very easy to get to and is exactly as depicted in the online pictures. I'm a neat freak and the house was very clean. I loved that there was a full washer and dryer at the house. The living room and kitchen are all open so it's easy to visit with family while making dinner. My daughter enjoyed all of the toys, especially the big red car (I think we may need to buy her one now). My husband enjoyed fishing off the dock. We caught a crab but decided to let him go. We also saw dolphins playing, a surprise I wasn't expecting. We went in November so the weather was a bit cooler. We heated up the pool every day and it was very enjoyable. This is an excellent house, I highly recommend it.
