Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Spring Hill

Peace & quiet, ideal for relaxation but within easy reach of main attractions

Our villa overlooks a golf course in a quiet residential area, away from the main tourist destinations (33 miles North of Tampa and 66 miles West of Orlando) - it is the ideal location for a quiet, relaxing holiday whilst still within easy driving distance of the main attractions. There is a large (28' x 14') heated swimming pool, a spacious lanai for outdoor living and an excellent beach just a 15 minute drive away. There are another 14 golf courses nearby - perfect for golf enthusiasts.

The international airport at Tampa is just 45 minutes away via the Suncoast Parkway, while the drive to Orlando takes 90 minutes. A wide variety of restaurants, shops and supermarkets can be found within a five or ten minute drive and Pine island beach is only 15 minuutes away. The whole area is wonderful for wild life - sit on the lanai and watch the birds feeding or adventure further afield and see manatees in the wild, alligators and much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a busy week at a hotel in Orlando we were looking forward to the warm welcome of our own exclusive villa for week two of our very own 'American Dream' holiday and upon entering our breath was literally taken away. This place has the warmth of a home and luxury you'd expect from a hotel. It has been an absolute find and we have enjoyed every second here.

It's a perfect base for exploring (St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Pine Island etc.) and the most magical way to spend a day next to the pool, in the sunshine (with a home made cosmo!) enjoying a beer and looking up to wonder at the wildlife - laugh at a squirrel and bird fight on top of the pool enclosure.

Liz and Ed, It's clear so much time and attention has been put into making this a home from home, it's just perfect! We are already thinking about coming back!

Thank you both for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

The best rental property ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best property that we have ever had the pleasure of renting, it was exceptionally clean and had every item that you could require in the kitchen, bathroom, lounge, pool and it even had a basketball hoop. The pool is perfect, in fact the only problem with this rental house is that you will not want to leave it to venture out.

Liz and Ed are perfect hosts, and we would love to visit again.

If you do manage to venture out, we loved Pine Island, and we saw lots of wildlife just swimming by, a Giant Sea Turtle and pods of dolphins were the highlight. We also swam with Manatee at Crystal River and that was great (but an early start). Perfect holiday in an American Dream - Thanks Liz and Ed.

A beautiful, well equipped, well maintained home.

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic! It is nicely decorated throughout and extremely comfortable. It has all the necessities: washer/dryer, wireless internet, cable TV – including extras: board games, books, DVDs, maps, area info. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need – and more. The bedrooms had plenty of closet space, drawer space and the beds were very comfortable. You couldn’t ask for a better home away from home.

The location is convenient for shopping, dining and sightseeing. The local library – with internet and printing capabilities – is about a mile away.

The landscaping is gorgeous. The lanai and pool have plenty of seating and a table and chairs for six, with a full bathroom. The heated pool is a perfect size. We took advantage of the pool every day.

We hated to leave – we hope to be back!

A great, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic!! When we arrived we were so excited and pleased with what we saw. The house was extremely clean, and has everything that you could need while on vacation. The kids absolutely loved the heated pool. They just swam for 4 days and didn't even want to go anywhere. The grill by the pool is such a blessing to have. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while in Spring Hill. We returned back home so relaxed. It was well worth it and possibly the best vacation we've had! I hope to return again next year, and many more to come. The owners were very easy to work with and are extremely organized and dedicated to this property and its upkeep.

Wonderful Villa in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is the best villa that we have stayed in, exceptionally well equipped and very comfortable.It was very,very clean and we wanted for nothing. The location is ideal for shopping and dining options and for visiting places of interest such Homosassa and Tarpon Springs. Also close to the beach at Pine Island. Highly recommended to those seeking a nice quite holiday in an ideal villa. Will be back next year, all being well.

Sunny Dreams

Just as described and a lot more, every aspect of making your stay at the property relaxing had been catered for. The location is perfect for those who want a quiet getaway or travellers who want to see the sights. Having spent two fantastic weeks at this property we would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wanted to visit the Gulf coast,a truly amazing property.

The customer service provide by Liz and Ed was first class and we look forward to hopefully returning to " An American Dream"

There is a TV in the master bedroom, ceiling fans in all rooms as well as the lanai and the fridge-freezer dispenses ice cubes and chilled water. The large (28' x 14') pool is heated with a heat pump (included in the price) and fitted with a (removable) child safety barrier. The sizable pool enclosure (50' x 22') and spacious lanai are ideal for outdoor living).
