Peaceful Palms on the Anclote River
average rating of 5.0 based on 17 reviews

Cozy, clean home on a canal with access to Gulf of Mexico.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Peaceful Palms. It had been 3 years since our first visit and the home is just as clean and cozy as the first time. We used the pontoon during our stay and had a wonderful time cruising down the river through Tarpon Springs and then out into the Gulf.

There were 6 of us and plenty of hot water when we returned for each to get a great shower.

Peaceful Palms is the perfect name for the place. It's quiet and so easy to relax there. There's a dock on the canal and the back yard is a great spot to sit by the fire pit with some drinks and reminisce. We hope to back again soon!

Clean. Perfect size for two couples. Being on the Anclote River and having a pontoon boat right in our back yard to use was very nice. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our very best friends!!

Peaceful Palms was marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay in this charming little house. It is centrally located to Tarpon Springs, Tampa, Sarasota and all the small towns In between. Manatees visited us many days. My husband found the fishing to be very enjoying also. He caught many varieties of fish. Pleasant neighbors added to the experience. Darrell and Annemarie Responded very fast if we had an issue. They are great owners. It was very warm in Fl for Feb and March was a bit cooler but house was very comfy.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Spent a relaxing week in Janurary enjoying the area and the birds, wildlife, and sunrises at this peaceful house. Easy access to all the places we wanted to visit, and quiet neighborhood with friendly, (but not nosy) neighbors. We appreciated the welcome basket and wine, and enjoyed making some of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen. No problems with Wi-fi or TV. Great space for a relaxing girlfriend getaway, small family, or couples vacationing together. The two bedrooms and two baths allow for privacy for everyone. It isn't particularly convenient to big tourist attractions, but if you prefer exploring nature and enjoying quiet, it would be a good fit. Would definitely stay again if visiting the area!

The Perfect Homebase Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "Peaceful Palms" was exactly that; peaceful. The process of checking in to the property could not have been easier. Enter the code provided by the owners into the front door lock, and you're in. This was really important for us since we arrived at about 4:00 for a wedding that began at 5:00 in Palm Harbor. We were able to get in, get changed, and make it to the wedding with time to spare. This may not seem like a big deal, but it makes it super convenient when you arrive.

The home is in tip-top shape. It is clean and very nicely appointed. Pretty much everything you need for a relaxing stay is at your fingertips. If you like to fish, the canal out back is teeming with mullet, and there are several nice fishing poles in the garage for you to use. There is also a washer and dryer in the garage, which allows you to pack much lighter for an extended stay. We opted not to rent the pontoon boat since we were pressed for time, but we plan on exercising that option during future stays.

As a family with four children under the age of six, we generally find travel to be a challenge. It's not always easy to find affordable options that can accommodate all of us. Even though Peaceful Palms only has two bedrooms, the layout is very spacious, and we did not feel like we were tripping over each other. The sleeper sofa in the living room could remain as a bed, and we still had plenty of living space in the living-dining room combination.

The owners of Peaceful Palms are very accommodating, and they are eager to make sure that every aspect of your stay is pleasant. Also, the goodie basket on arrival was a very nice touch.

Peace and Tranquility at Peaceful Palms

  • 5 of 5

First of all...the owners of this spectacular home go above and beyond to make your stay very pleasurable and memorable. They are such a pleasure to work with in all transactions regarding your stay, from the very first inquiry, to the end of your stay. This home on the Anclote River is perfectly decorated, super clean, and leaves nothing to desire as the owners have thought of everything one might need while on vacation. Games, DVDs, all the essentials, including coffee, tea, sugar, spices, pots and pans, matching dinner ware, utensils, you name it, they have thought of everything to make your stay perfect! They even provide a canoe and life vests, fishing poles, and even beach towels. For a minimal fee you can even use their pontoon boat. Thanks to Ann Marie and Darrell for a truly perfect and memorable weekend!
