Excellent (and fun!) house in Tarpon Springs

We were a party of six (2 grandparents, 2 parents, 2 boys ages 14 and 15) that stayed for four nights in March. We had a lovely time! The boys were very happy to have "freedom" from the adults--they rode bikes into town, kayaked, paddle-boarded and walked from the house. We felt totally comfortable about their safety. I had hoped that the boys could just put the kayaks and paddle-boards in to the water at the house and that was the case. (The house is on a dead end canal which is a nice safe quiet area to start; they subsequently ventured quite a ways away.) The boys explored a lot and had separate encounters with groups of manatee and dolphins on kayak adventures. They were thrilled! The adults were happy too. :) The back patio is a nice area to sit and talk and dad took advantage of the kayaks, paddle-boards and bikes too. We also loved being able to walk to the sponge docks (and tourist area), the Odyssey boat starting point, the Greek Orthodox church and the downtown area. There are sidewalks from the house to all of these areas, so we only used the car to get groceries and go to Fred Howard Park. In case you are curious (I was after I looked at Google maps), there are empty lots on both sides of the property. One lot has crabbing things stored on it, but there is a fence blocking it from view and the other lot has a boat docked. It was actually nice not to have houses right next door on either side--it felt very private. The house had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. One night we watched a movie and another night we played a game (Apples to Apples) that was at the house. David was a great host and even brought an extra bike over for us. Overall, a wonderful vacation!

5/5 Excellent

Great place on the water

The place was just as advertised and Dave was a great host! We will definitely come back.

A month of sunshine !

Rental was very clean, beds were very comfortable. plenty of linens. Beautiful deck to soak up the sun and watch boaters. Close enough to walk to several restaurants and a touristy shopping area. Although I did not use the following equipment - kayaks, bicycles, paddle boards, gas grill- it was very well equipped for those who wish to make use of them. Lots of room and owner was very willing to accommodate. Thanks for a nice vacation.

5/5 Excellent

Home away from home!

We enjoyed our stay so much that we were allowed to extend it another day! Such a relaxing and comfortable home with so many amenities and the location is wonderful. We will be back as often as we can!!
