                  Fees:

                  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
                  • Tax Rate 12%

                  Notes:

                  During the Summer if you require less than one month we will adopt suitable pricing but still issue a lease for 30 days; sticking to our HOA agreements. Rates are subject to change until the reservation is confirmed; small groups are preferred. In some circumstances we may allow an additional discount. Payment using a credit card via PayPal incurs a 3% transaction charge borne by the renter.

                  A 20% deposit is required when the reservation is made. The balance is payable 42 days before the start of the rental. Payments are usually via PayPal (enabling use of a credit card but with a transaction charge borne by the renter) or a check or a bank transfer.


                  This manager accepts: Credit cards.
                  Always make sure to call the number on the listing to confirm payment details. Only pay using credit card, PayPal, check or direct bank transfer. NEVER pay by cash or instant money transfer services such as Western Union or MoneyGram. Learn more

                  Lake Tarpon (various state parks) is about 5 minutes drive away - for barbecues, great fishing, trails, viewing towers, boating and water activities. Fishermen are 'spoilt for choice' in this area. Travel a little further (20 mins) you can reach the Honeymoon Island State Park and beach and from there the short ferry ride to Caladesi island; both of these are nature reserves, completely unspoiled and offer park trails with superb beach and sea activities. Caladesi beaches are continually voted as being in the top 10 in the USA. Fred Howard Park (a lovely beach) is also nearby for pedal boats, kayaks, bird and wildlife watching, swimming and beach relaxation. Also close by are the Sponge Docks of Tarpon Springs with numerous Greek restaurants, bars, shops, bakeries and a Greek diving museum and 'Greek atmosphere'. You can visit the marinas of Dunedin and Ozona with good dining and just to the south (all under 30 minutes) is Clearwater Beach - world renowned, a great beach and wonderful resort area as well as the Clearwater Acquarium. Looking for golf? There are numerous super golf courses nearby and the Innisbrook championship course is about 4 miles away. Sports fans should note this area now has the Phillies Spring Training Ground within a 5 minute drive. Raymond James and Tropicana field are about a 30 minute drive. Fancy going to see horse racing - Tampa Bay Downs is under 15 minutes drive. In under 45 minutes you can reach Busch Gardens theme parks and in about 90 minutes Disneyworld in Orlando. The Tampa International Airport and St Petersburg airports are both within about 30 minutes driving time.

                  Why Palm Harbor:
                  This property is well established and in a lovely safe and well kept area, convenient and close to everything; close to Tampa airport, abundant shopping malls, super beaches, lake Tarpon, Clearwater beach and numerous other attractions. The property feels like brand new and was completely refurbished and redecorated in 2012 by a local builder with new kitchen and bathroom units and appliances. We've completed this overhaul with new bedrooms, furniture, utilities (washer and dryer), linen and all new kitchen equipment. The property is fitted out with good broadband, telephone and TV services.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The private, large heated pool is the crowning glory of the property; fully heated for warm swims in the winter months. A great patio area with a covered lanai for trouble free outdoor entertaining. From 2013 virtually everything is brand new.
