Overview

About the property

Enjoy walking distance from Florida's beaches and close to famous theme parks.

Enjoy being walking distance from Florida's beaches and a short car ride away from many world famous attractions. Don't settle for a hotel when you can be at home in a 3200 sq. ft. house with 5 private bedrooms, a private pool, stainless steel gas grill, multiple patios, large kitchen and giant family room w/ a huge 72" HD TV w/ XBOX along with another entertainment room with another large screen HD TV. It's a perfect place for creating family memories or getting together with old friends.

You will find our 3200+ sq. ft. home is very spacious inside and out with five private bedrooms, along with a sleeper sofa in the upstairs great room and an air mattress available upon request.

The back yard is fully private and fenced in with multiple patios and plush tropical landscaping everywhere with live oak hammocks, bamboo, various palm trees, bird of paradise, and much more.

There are chickens far into the far back of the yard, which require no work on your part, as they are all taken care of with an automatic feeding/watering system. If you choose, you can simply harvest the eggs, rinse and enjoy fresh eggs for breakfast just like on the farm.

We are located in a quiet neighborhood with sidewalks that will connect you directly to the nearest beaches and our famous biking trail - Pinellas Trail, which extends from one end of the county to the other - all less than 2 miles away. It's a beautiful walk or bike ride with bike rental companies nearby.

Sunset Beach is a mile away with, you guessed it, amazing sunsets. There's also a volley ball net for your enjoyment along with cookout/party pavilions and playgrounds.

Howard Park Beach is less than 1.5 miles away with its beautiful sand and gorgeous sunsets, nice bike/hiking trails amongst the beautiful oak tree hammocks, cookout/party pavilions and playgrounds.

Of course there's the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks - only 3 miles away with America's largest Greek community. Dodecanese Boulevard, "The Sponge Docks", is full of things to do, anything from dolphin watching excursions, deep sea fishing charters, boat tours to watch sponge divers pull up live sponges, and even an Aquarium. The whole street is full of restaurants and various shops, with ice cream shops and pastry shops along the way. And the authentic Greek restaurants... I must say, wonderful. After visiting and experiencing Greece myself for a summer, I personally feel Tarpon Springs does it better.

Clearwater Beach and all of its glory (rated one of the top beached in the world) is only 15 miles or a 30 minute drive away with parasailing, indoor surfing at Surf Style, jet ski rental, the public Jolly Trolly transportation system, high speed boat tours, dolphin encounters. And don't forget The Clearwater Marine Aquarium where you can meet the world famous dolphins - Winter and Summer from the movie Dolphin Tale 1 and 2.

And as far as theme parks go, Busch Gardens is only a 45 minute ride, and then there's the famous theme parks (Universal / Disney / SeaWorld) which are an hour and a half away.

Weeki Wachee river is less than an hour ride with it's beautifully clear freshwater spring boasting a water park with water slides, snorkeling and it's world famous mermaid shows. There are even canoe/kayak rentals available where you can coast down the crystal clear waters for 6 miles and then they conveniently pack you up and bus you back to the park.

There's so much more available in the area that you will not be at a loss for things to do. Let us know what your interests are and we will make sure to have you well informed when you arrive for a vacation packed with fun, relaxation and memories that will last a lifetime.

Guest Access

Easy Access Door Keypad

Interaction with Guests

We generally enjoy staying in homes without much owner interaction, so we will extend this courtesy during your stay, but we will always be a text or phone call away if you need anything.

The Neighborhood

Riding bikes or walking to the beaches or Sponge Docks is our favorite past time. The neighborhoods have sidewalks that make this safe and enjoyable.

Getting Around

The Jolly Trolley can take you all the way to Clearwater Beach if you choose to use this quaint and unique public transportation.

Other Things to Note

The back yard is an outdoor jungle with a pool, a pond, and a chicken coop. There are no responsibilities whatsoever. The chickens and pond are all maintained with automatic feeders that are filled between rental reservations. Enjoy the jungle.

A group lease may be required due to Tarpon Springs requirements.

Great for spreading out and down time

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as pictured, very clean, well equipped, and fast easy response from owner. The only downside were all the extra charges ... cleaning fee (150), required insurance (79) and a service fee (99 - this one not listed in the description.) I feel that an extra 346.00 was a lot of fees! We did enjoy our stay though. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Stephanie, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. To be fair, the service fee is a fee that Homeaway charges you to use their service. The insurance is not provided through Homeaway, so it is necessary for our protection and the cleaning fee is a standard.

The house was really nice.

  • 3 of 5

Pool should be screened in. My kids got bit all the time. AC kept going to 78 way to hot for Florida. WIFI very slow.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the home and regret you had not informed me of the issues with the WIFI. We do have Verizon FIOS with one of their highest speed packages, so I will look into this right away. There is only one scheduled setting in the thermostat for the A/C to adjust to 78° at noon for energy savings as many do leave during the day. We prefer the open pool setting to enjoy the view of the stars at night. Around dusk, some mosquitoes do come out but we generally had luck with candles or bug spray. I will definitely look into other options.
