Our Florida Story
We have been coming to Florida as a couple and now as a family for the past 20 years and are still as much in love with the place as we ever were. We are always excited to visit and love to plan each trip together and then really look forward to coming each time we visit. We have often brought friends and other family members with us and everyone has been taken by some or all of what Florida has to offer. There really is so much to do and see - all you have to do is ask and you can tap into our experience of everything that the local area has to offer.
We live in the UK in a village in rural Norfolk. We have always lived near the sea and have always enjoyed living by the coast and so Florida's Gulf Coast was the natural place for us to buy our holiday home. The weather is always fine, the local people are very friendly and we have all the advantages of staying in a home from home. We have got to know some of our neighbours along our street and have made friends and contacts in and around the area that are always on hand to offer help and assistance to both ourselves and our visiting guests.
Our property managers, Sue and Steve, live nearby and are on hand to give you both a friendly welcome and any help or advice you need to help you enjoy your stay.

Best of Both Worlds
Situated on the Gulf Coast we have found the area to be quieter and more relaxed than the more commercial East Coast and Orlando/Kissimee areas. Here on the Gulf we have the best of both worlds; there are great beaches nearby (Clearwater and Pine Island Beach being our favourites) and easy access to attractions with Busch Gardens and Adventure Island among our favourites.
The immediate area is well served by an amazing choice of excellant restaurants - you can eat at a different venue every night for 2 weeks and enjoy something quite different each time. Catches, Long Horn, Chilis, Red Lobster, Applebees, The Outback, Sams and Bonefish are among our favourites. For breakfast there is RAM's family Diner nearby, I-Hop on US 19 and of course Dennys. For snacks and treats there is Dairy Queen and for lunch Sub-Way and all of these places are within easy reach of our home
A great way to spend an evening is to have a BBQ at the house and eat outdoors on the pool deck - a great place to relax and unwind after a hard days shopping!

Other Attractions
There is great shopping locally at Gulf View Mall and along US19. Travel a little further and Citrus Mall (25mins drive) and International Mall in Tampa (40mins drive) have all the shops you could wish for - as do 'The Shops at Wiregrass' - a more traditional high street type layout with numerous shops, restaurants and cafes - retail heaven!
For parkland walks and nature trails there is JB Starkey Wilderness Park - a great area for picnics and cycling too. Also there is the amazing Weeki Wachee Springs - a superb warm water natural spring that can be canoed along for its entire 6 mile length - great for viewing Florida in the raw and all its amazing wildlife including Manatee, birds, turtles etc.
Why not visit nearby Tarpon Springs where you can arrange boat/fishing trips and even snorkelling or indulge in fabulous traditional Greek pastries and strong coffees in authentic Greek cafes.
North on US19 lies Spring Hill a vibrant town where you can explore shops and visit Pine Island Beach ( a State Park also known as Alfred McKethan Park) with its sandy beaches and shady picnic areas. Here you will also find car parking, showers, toilets, outdoor bbq's and a small shop to buy drinks and snacks.
Further afield in Tampa you can visit museums (such as the amazing Museum of Science & Industry on East Fowler Avenue) , art galleries and of course the fabulous Florida Aquarium - a must see for children and adults alike.
A little further afield is the Salvador Dali museum and gallery in St Petersburg, a fascinating day out.
Or just ask us - we are more than happy to talk about all the attractions, facilities, beaches and leisure activities we have discovered on our many trips to this part of Florida!

Car: Recommended

Our home is situated on the beautiful Fairway Oaks Golf Course with greens fees of $25 per person including golf cart. Hudson Beach less than 3 miles away has water sports, boating and fishing trips, not to be missed fabulous sunsets as well as outdoor dining on the beach at Sam's Bar or the more formal Inn on the Gulf.

Great restaurants and shopping within 10 to 15 minutes drive along US19. Top quality shopping in superb surroundings at Citrus Park Mall approx 25 mins drive and at International Mall approx 35 mins drive. Or why not visit 'The shops at Wiregrass' some 30 minutes drive with traditional high street lay out, free parking and a huge range of shops, restaurants and cafes.

The local area has some of North America's best beaches inc. Pine Island Beach, also known as Alfred McKethan Park, Caladesi Island a wonderful nature reserve with beaches - accessed by a ferry service, or the world famous Clearwater Beach to the South approx. 35 mins drive. On the way stop off in Tarpon Springs fishing and sponge diving village, on Alt 19. Superb Greek pastries, cafes and shopping on the dock side.

Busch Gardens Theme Park with amazing animals and thrilling rides, our personal favourite, approx 40 mins away and next door to this is Adventure Island a superb water park with rides and attractions for all ages - fantastic fun! The Florida Aquarium in Tampa is well worth a visit or a little further afield there is of course Disney World.

Or why not stay by the pool and use our outdoor bbq and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and unspoilt views across the golf course, a great way to unwind.

Dining Out - you really can eat out in style every night of your stay and not have to visit the same place twice. For great seafood try Catches, Red Lobster or our favourite Bonefish - all within a short distance of our holiday home. For great steaks there is Longhorn and The Outback again only a short distance by car. For more casual dining there is Sam's literally on the beach at Hudson where you can sit with a nice drink and watch the sunset. For takeaway meals there is Marzellos Italian and a great Chinese takeaway - both on the parade within walking distance of the house. Also nearby are 2 pharmacies, a fuel station, a bank and Publix Supermarket.

Golf: Our home sits back from the Links Golf Course giving nice parkland views whilst at the same time remaining private and secluded due to surrounding trees, bushes and shrubbery. The course is well kept and has a good variety of short, medium and long holes with some narrow and some more open spaces. I am a 24 handicap golfer and thoroughly enjoy playing this course. Green fees are around $20 to 25 per person per round and include an electric golf cart. As a nice alternative you can also play the 'sister' course Beacon Woods just a short drive away off Fivay. This course is also well laid out and well kept charging only $20 per round including golf cart.

There are 2 reasonable half sets of golf clubs in the garage at the house if you don't have or can't bring your own clubs. These are free for all of our guests to use. In addition to this there are many excellent golf courses within a 10 mile radius of our house - please e-mail or telephone for details.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in the UK in a village in rural Norfolk, not far from the city of Norwich. We have always lived near the sea and have always enjoyed living by the coast and so Florida's Gulf Coast was the natural place for us to buy our holiday home. The weather is always fine, the local people are very friendly and we have all the advantages of staying in a home from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
There are so many amazing features and benefits when choosing this home. The house was made for families and groups of people wishing to stay together. The layout of the property with each bedroom next to a bathroom for convenience. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are arranged around the main living areas - this allows everyone their own space and privacy whilst providing plenty of separate areas to meet up, relax, eat or just hang out and watch TV. The house itself is very spacious, has high vaulted ceilings to keep it cool with plenty of parking out front and a large double garage so that vehicles may be stored and kept cool overnight. Outside there is a fabulous pool terrace with plenty of room for outdoor dining, sunbathing or simply looking out over the neighbouring golf course. It feels like you are in a park due to the rolling grass fairways and numerous birds, squirrels and other wildlife passing by. The house itself is less than 1 mile away from a Supermarket, a Gas station as well as pharmacies, takeaway restaurants and only 2 miles from the nearest beach. However as we are situated in a quiet no outlet (cul-de-sac) road the area is quiet, residential and the neighbours are friendly.
