Great location, friendly neighbours
My husband and I stayed here with our 6-year-old son and his 16-year-old brother, it was the most perfect vacation! We had great communication with the owners from the start, which continued throughout the entire rental experience; the owners are simply wonderful! The entire home is stocked with everything and then some. Easy access to highways and within a super short drive to some gorgeous beaches. Indian Rocks was our fave, we also ventured to Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands (great for shells), Clearwater Beach, and a longer drive to Madiera Beach for parasailing (gator co). We made the less than two hour drive to Disney World and spent the day there. We were able to do so much, especially with the location, but our favorite moments were spent at this lovely home. The pool was big enough for all four of us to enjoy, the master bedroom has a master bath as well which was fantastic for our own space. Plenty of tv channels for a lazy morning and evening. BBQ grill available for some great meals and hang outs on the huge outback patio. Washer and dryer was extremely convenient for all the aftermath of beach adventures. I could go on forever, this place is the best. We will be back!
Our first year of retirement couldn't have been any better! This house is very spacious, and in a very nice area of Palm Harbor. 10 to 15 min. to beaches. Many, many restaurants and shopping. Being baseball fans, we especially liked going to Dunedin for spring training games, and then over the Tampa for a game. The house has a very large lanai area, where we spent most of our time. You can even watch TV from out there! Although the owners, Lynn & Alan live in England, they communicated with us like they were just down the street. Would definitely rent this property again.
We – Reinhard & Gabi from Bad Homburg, Germany - thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home for our vacation last six years.
Every reason stated in our review in 2010 (see below) why we are returners still applies today – perhaps valid than ever.
Each stay we truly felt like being home.
We highly recommend staying here - We would not hesitate to rent it again!
My husband Chris and I had a lovely 2 week holiday in this fabulous home. It is our 4th or 5th stay in this house and we have been so pleased with it its why we keep coming back for more. The House is tastefully furnished to a very high standard, the owner always phones to check everything is ok for us, which is nice of them to do that. It is exceptionally clean inside and out and to relax in the pool for a cool off at the end of the day after being out and about is wonderful. Cocktails on the lanai afterwards in the peace and quiet of the area is just heaven. There are many places to visit close by and of course the fabulous beaches are many. Clearwater is only 15 minutes drive away and Tarpon Springs even nearer. Lots of restaurants nearby offer all kinds of different varieties of cooking. I would say the only downside is that the time goes far too quickly and would like to stay for 3 weeks next time, so yes we will definitely be back again
We had a wonderful time in this villa. My two daughters who are two and four enjoyed every minute and spent a lot of time in the lovely warm pool. The owners have thought of everything to make you stay a nice one. Very well maintained and in a great location. We hope to return again for a holiday!
We both enjoyed our stay in this property. It is a lovely home that is very well equipped, with everything you need. There is an excellent welcome pack and lots of leaflets to help you plan your holiday. The villa is in a lovely quite neighbourhood, and within easy reach of shops, restaurants and beaches.
The owners are very helpful and even rang to ensure that everything was ok.
Palm Harbor is an attractive area just north of Clearwater and about 25 miles north of Tampa and St.Petersburg.
