Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Forest Hills

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This home is beautifully decorated- located on the Anclote River across a 2 acre conservation island. So peaceful, tranquility and privacy is

guaranteed as you lounge around your own heated pool.

Close proximity to many golf courses, beaches and located only 2 miles

away from the Pinellas Trail. This is an ideal location if you are a keen golfer or just want to relax on the white sandy beaches.

This tastefully furnished home has 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6), 2 baths, an over sized 1 car garage, kitchen, living room, family room with fireplace, dining room with large windows that overlook the heated pool, and private dock that you can fish from.

(No swimming, PLEASE! MUCH WILDLIFE!) Enjoy bird watching? This would be the place to stay.

The house is fully equipped with everything that you would have at home, and all on one level. All you need do is bring your toothbrush! You can relax with a cold beverage by the pool and enjoy all the comforts this wonderful vacation home has to offer in a resort like setting.One king size and four single beds comprise sleeping accomodations. Four TV's are situated throughout the house. Bask in the sun and enjoy the peace and quiet as you de-stress from life's often hectic pace. Kindly consult calendar for availability, Carol

Amazing Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful and clean home. It has everything you could ever need and want. The back deck and pool are so peaceful. Our 3 year old son was in heaven the entire week. Carol, the property manager always got back to me on time and answered all my questions. She made sure we had a great experience. We can't wait to come back very soon.

Great home for any length stay.

  • 5 of 5

Impeccably clean on arrival and was comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for a month's stay.

The pool and deck were very nice and we had avian visitors as well as manatee swim by. The manager was nearby and was knowledgeable about the property and answered any questions we had.

Easy drive to Tarpon Springs, Dunedin and Port Richey.

Lovely home with everything needed for a great vacation. Comfortable and quiet and within easy driving for stores and restaurants. I would recommend, and my husband gave it an A+(which does not happen often). Thanks for sharing .

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is spotless and very well equipped. It is very quiet and child and senior citizen friendly. I spent the winter there and have reserved the house for next winter.

If you want to go explore, Holiday is a wonderfully kept

secret. It's about 40 minutes from Tampa which has Busch Gardens, Lego Land and

Adventure Island, a fun water park with slides, wave pools and many

other exciting adventures! 90 minutes from Orlando which

hosts all the Disney Parks and Seaworld. You're 10 minutes from Tarpon Springs- one of the largest Greek communities in Florida, where you can enjoy dinner, the sponge docks or a glass bottom boat ride or just window shopping. Clearwater Beach is only a short drive to white sandy beaches and is home to Winter-the star of the movie- Dolphin Tale. Visit Howard Park beach -a local hidden jewel that is extremely kid friendly..... while Just north is Weeki Wachee -home of the mermaid show, a natural spring, with water park with canoe rentals. These natural springs are home to the beautiful and friendly manatees, it's a sight everyone should see at least once, but if you see it once...you'll want to see these rare creatures again and again - even off your dock.

Want to get some exercise and nature, take the paddle boat around the island.There's shopping, good restaurants, you can also rent a boat or jet ski to visit the off shore sand bar, Anclote Island or Honeymoon Island, where you can spend the day swimming, shelling and dolphin watching- just as the locals do. With this lovely home all your friends and family will know you've been to Florida. You'll come home relaxed, tan, and ready to book your next visit with us! This is what Florida is all about!
