Outside this 1500 sq. ft. rental on the Anclote River, (five minutes north of Tarpon Springs and 35 minutes from St. Pete and Tampa Airport) seagulls soar overhead and dolphins and manatees cavort in warm waters below. Lizards and butterflies in the gardens surprising visitors with an impromptu appearance on the deck, dock or pool lanai.

                              Holiday House invites quests to enjoy the tropical surroundings at a deliciously relaxed pace. Judy and Jim have decorated this dream cottage for people desiring an island experience. This colorful dwelling is perched on a wide river curving west to the gulf in an undisturbed nature. The view with sun glistening on the water in the morning is only rivaled by the palm trees and fresh grapefruit juice.
