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 to add three more vacation rental homes, catering to smaller groups or couples with a smaller budget, listing numbers 959787, 1152799 and 1122450.

Curry Hayes purchased this house in 2014

Why Curry Hayes chose Tarpon Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

Plenty of wide open spaces for even those in large groups to find a place to relax. Guests enjoy the fully equipped kitchen with plenty top quality dishes, cookware, and appliances to make cooking a joy. Two full size refrigerators with plenty of space. The owners furnished this house as though they would live there themselves!

well stocked and effortless

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (6 adults, 4 kids under ten) enjoyed a week at this house over thanksgiving. The layout, furnishings, and decor worked well for us. We truly appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was (appliances, utensils, Tupperware, etc). There were plenty of extra sheets and blankets and towels and pillows. We had a plumbing issue during our stay, but after a call to the home owners, a plumber arrived and fixed it within the hour. The heated pool was fantastic. The two 3-year-old boys give "the blue Florida house" four thumbs up.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a 4 bedroom rental close to where my dad lives in Tarpon Springs. This ended up being perfect for us. There was plenty of space in the common areas, and plenty of linens for the beds. The kitchen had pretty much everything we needed, with lots of pots and pans and a well-functioning dishwasher. Our hosts gifted us a pie upon our arrival and it was delicious and much appreciated. We tried to get another but the bakery was closed for the New Year's holiday. We had looked forward to using the pool, but the weather was too chilly during our visit. We appreciated there being two refrigerators, as the food and drink for 10 took up a lot of space. The house is across the street from a nature area with trails and we took a nice walk one of the mornings. We would definitely rent this house again.

A Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My large family stayed at the "Hayes Hilton" for 5 days when my grandmother passed away. This home was such blessing to us amidst great sadness. The open floorplan meant that we could entertain some extended family members for dinner (they, too, loved this house) as we reminisced and grieved together. The home was very accommodating, also, for our 6 children as there was plenty to keep them occupied. Everything was clean, fresh and comfortable. Fran is such a sweet person and we couldn't be happier with how this rental turned out, we will definitely be coming back! Jackie
