About Curry Hayes

Curry is a native of this area and is a professional home refurbisher/remodeler. When he purchased this house he had a vision of what a great place his could be as a vacation rental, and together with his wife Fran turned it into a charming and comfortable place ideal for vacationers. The couple had so much fun meeting new friends and welcoming guests into their vacation home, that they decided in November 2016 to add a second vacation rental home, catering to smaller groups or couples, listing # 959787.

Curry Hayes purchased this house in 2014

Why Curry Hayes chose Clearwater Area

Fantastic pool totally resurfaced in September 2015, where many of our guests spend the majority of their time relaxing. Excellent location, new furnishings and thoughtfully appointed decor.

Just perfect for my family.

  • 5 of 5

The property was actually more beautiful than the on line photos. We felt completely at home and relaxed with no stress. My husband enjoys cooking out and using the grill and there is one provided. Having a private pool just for us was so much nicer than motel rentals-We will stay here again on our next trip.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the "Hayes Hilton" in October with 8 adults and 2 kids. We had a wonderful time and will definitely plan on staying here again.


- the house is wonderfully equipped. Great with the standard stuff like cups, plates, etc but also with upgrades like plenty of towels, sheets, games. 2 fridges on vacation is dreamy

- structurally, the house is much bigger than depicted on homeaway. we slept 8 adults and 2 kids very comfortably. the bedrooms are far apart from each other at all. 2 living spaces are great to allow conversation and separate socialization

- the location is ideal. the park across the street has a really nice playground and trails going to the river for running, hiking, whatever. the proximity to Tarpon Sponges docks is great.

- the owners are extremely responsive and flexible. I got responses to my emails within minutes to hours every time. I requested to extend our check out time and they were very accommodating.


- not really the owner's fault but apparently this area of Florida doesn't recycle and I felt really bad about that.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

The Hayes Hilton was perfect for our family. With 4 bedrooms, we were spread out that all had privacy and no disturbance by others snoring. The property is well maintained inside and out. Everything was provided to make our stay simple-towels, cookware, ample amount of dishes, bbq, linens, washer/dryer and a lovely pool. The location of the home is close to whatever you needed-shopping, site seeing, beaches, sponge docks, relatives (at least ours). We plan to stay here again on our next visit to Tarpon Springs.

Updated and well maintained. Convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The home is beautiful. The photos really don't do it justice. Everything you need to make your stay hassle-free is provided. The owners have done an amazing job with the furnishings, and the many little details throughout the home. We appreciated that plenty of linens/towels were provided, ample dishes/cookware, nice beds and the commercial size washer and dryer. The pool/back yard was also amazing. It is conveniently located near the Sponge Docks, which we truly enjoyed. Also, very near 2 lovely beaches and shopping. We will likely never stay in a hotel again! You can tell that Jan and Curry truly care about this home and want it to be perfect for your stay. We will definitely be back & would recommend this home to anyone.

Overly impressed

  • 5 of 5

Fran was very helpful and very welcoming, without her our trip for Memorial Day weekend would have never happened as she went out of her way to allow us to rent and provided an unbeatable rate! Best host I've ever rented with. As for The house, it is incredibly gorgeous and much bigger than the pictures, the pool is extremely enjoyable aswell along with the privacy the fence offers. Slept 13 overly comfortably. The location is absolutely perfect as well, such as gas stations, walmarts, publix, liquor stores, cvs, resteraunts, and even gyms less than 5 miles from the house. The house is perfectly stocked with everything needed to enjoy your weekend.10/10 for the host, 10/10 for the house!
