About Margo Barnard

We enjoy our time in Tarpon Springs playing tennis, running on the bayou, kayaking and exploring the variety of restaurants. Because of the nature of our work we travel between Tarpon Springs and Southern California.

We wanted to share the loveliness of the area with other visitors.

Margo Barnard purchased this house in 2012

Clean & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

I spent a weekend here and it was great. The house was spacious, clean and up to my expectations. The pool was beautiful. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors were friendly. There's a park within walking distance from the house and it's in a good location. Also, you have easy access to grocery stores and restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay. Thank you.

Review #22525673 Tarpon Springs, Fl

  • 3 of 5


Great location, spacious, Clean

Needs work:

1. Pool not inviting

2. Hot tub disgusting

3. Inside lighting poor. Purge curly bulbs for brighter LED's.

4. Front door latch inadequate. Safe? Duct tape on door handle is sad.

5. Some towels with bleach spots.

6. Lower bath door knob needs replacing/repair

7. Lower bath shower head use is awkward with metal basket tray.

8. Lower front room bed had a sharp protrusion

9. Verizon broadband battery needs replacing...beeping and red light on.

10, Lower bed only has sheet over the foam pad...needs a mattress cover at least.

11. Upper bath door to attic needs a new latch. keeps swinging open to hot attic air

12. Kitchen cabinet doors need hinge adjustments.

Please take this as constructive criticism. This was a much more convenient alternative to a hotel room and we were glad for this choice. These changes will allow you to have a better home to rent.

Owner's Response: In response to guest's review: 1. The pool is not fenced, so there are leaves that fall into the pool. We have a cleaning system in-place and the pool is professionally serviced. 2. There is no public hot tub for guest's to use. We do not advertise the use of a hot tub. These guests should not have been around the hot tub. It is on the property, but will be removed. 3. The house is well lit with sunlight during the day. We replace the bulbs as they expire. 4. We placed duct tape on the lower lock so that guests would not lock themselves out of the house. The house is secure, we use a digital locking system which is more secure than a key system. 5. Verizon battery has been replaced. Since we aren't in the home all the time, we only know this is a problem when guests bring it to our attention. 6. All mattresses and pads are covered with mattress covers. We carefully maintain our hundred-year old home. It has dual AC systems, room fans, updated kitchen with new stove, dishwasher and microwave. We offer a very comfortable home for a reasonable price. When comparing vacation homes to hotels, guests have a much more pleasant stay with personal space to enjoy. We appreciate guest reviews and always strive to offer a great vacation.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Tarpon Springs was a great destination for our family's spring break and this home was perfect for us. The pool was nice for those days when our grandsons had had enough wind and waves. There were beach toys, umbrella and towels as well as a well-supplied kitchen. Location was perfect...we walked uptown and by the bayou several times. House is located in a very quiet area and even though the yard is not big, it still felt private thanks to the fence and the landscaping. We enjoyed both the front and back porch...great for coffee and a book. We would certainly stay here again when in the area.
