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 and your guests can enjoy a home with a private pool, gas grill, multiple patios, large kitchen/family room w/ a giant 55" 4K Ultra High Definition TV w/ XBOX. It's a perfect place for creating family memories or getting together with old friends.

You will find our 2000 sq. ft. home very spacious inside and out with three private bedrooms, along with 2 queen sleeper sofas in the family room.

The back yard is fully private and fenced in with multiple patios, plush tropical landscaping and walkways all the way around the home with a park like setting. Ferns are everywhere with live oak hammocks, various palm trees, bird of paradise, and much more.

There are chickens far into the back right 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 a 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 less than 2 miles 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 2.5 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 chicken coop and a beautiful clear path that wraps around the house with pavers. There are no responsibilities whatsoever. The chickens are maintained with automatic feeders that are filled between rental reservations. Enjoy the jungle.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and comfortable home. Loved checking for fresh eggs from the chickens daily. Very well designed outside for relaxing. Our only want was a little more sun in the pool area.

Loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

We visited Jeff's home for a week during August 2017. We opted to stay in the home versus being on the beach. The cost was very reasonable for the location and size of the home. The house was very clean and newly remodeled. A sun-filled open floor plan with vaulted ceiling made the home feel bright and fresh. The kitchen was more than stocked with everything we needed to cook. We only need a few things like paper towels, aluminum foil, etc, but things we could easily pick up from the dollar store around the corner. We were also pleased to find plenty of fresh towels, sheets and blankets. Note: all of these items were found in the first bedroom in the front of the house. We searched a bit for these. The location of the home was perfect, very quiet! The backyard jungle with chicken coup was so fun, my youngest LOVED getting the fresh eggs. She had to have boiled eggs poolside one day just to take advantage. It was super close to all grocery stores, pharmacies and both Tarpon and Sunset beach. We also visited Clearwater and St. Pete, which both were not a bad drive. The only thing that was not perfect, was the jets on the pool, they did not seem to stay on consistently, but we really didn't need to keep them on. Jeff always made himself available whenever we had questions. If we visit the Tampa area, we would definitely stay again and would absolutely recommend this home to another family.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home. Very clean and suited our needs well. We brought in groceries and cooked our own meals. All the cookware and kitchen gadgets we needed were there. The grounds were very pretty, private and had a tropical feel. Our grandchildren loved the chickens and checked for eggs every 15 minutes. I'm exaggerating, but they were fun. Thanks for everything Jeff!
