Why Paul & Karen chose Palm Harbor

Lake Tarpon Villas is unique in many ways. It has the peacefulness of a romantic getaway on Lake Tarpon but it is nestled in one of the most beautiful beach areas in the country. You can fresh water fish out your back door in one of the best bass fishing lakes in the state, or head to the fishing docks in Tarpon Springs and Clearwater Beach where you can hop on a deep sea fishing boat to catch the big ones! You are within driving distance to Busch Gardens, Sea World and Disney World. The city of Tampa is just a drive over the causeway with many venues you would seek in a larger city. Beach life, entertainment and fine dining in the Florida Suncoast. What more could you ask for!

What makes this condo unique

The Pinellas Suncoast has something for everyone, young or old..Everything under the sun to enjoy. Take your own pontoon boat out fishing, dinning or just cruising! Your minutes from several popular beaches if you like sun bathing and swiming in the Gulf of Mexico. Pick sunshine in freshwater or saltwater... It is here for you and your family to enjoy..

Great Sunshine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Karen were awesome hosts. Their home was super clean and inviting with all the little things included. Coffee in the morning out on the porch overlooking the water was so relaxing. My niece and nephews loved the day out on the float boat. Have family in the area so we will definitely be back!

Property and activities were just as advertised and completely met our expectations.

  • 4 of 5

Paul and Karen have a wonderful place for family fun on the lake. It was an added bonus to have the boat available for fishing and exploring the waters of Lake Tarpon. Condo was clean and well stocked with everything needed except food. We would definitely recommend staying here and would in the future.

This is our fifth time staying in this wonderful condo and it feels like our second home. It is VERY well stocked with everything you need for your stay. FULLY equipped kitchen, a closet with coolers, pool toys, etc. Plenty of linens, etc. Even multiple hairdryers, and a flat iron in the bathrooms.

Oh, and did I mention THE BOAT? Its wonderful to have access to it all day, anytime you feel like it. The pictures of the property are very realistic. This smaller complex is also very quite at night. Just book it! You won't regret it!

wonderful, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Paul and Karen's place, and couldn't have been more pleased. The condo had everything we needed, and more! There were ample towels, linens, and even beach/fishing stuff to be found in the front closet. We had already bought toiletries, but found that there were small amounts left in the condo that we could have made use of. The decor is as seen in the pictures. We did take advantage of using the pontoon, and found a cruise around the lake very relaxing in the afternoons. The pool, although small, was the highlight for the kids. We were able to get to the beaches in 15-20 minutes drive (although putting Clearwater into the GPS resulted in a 45+ minute trek....not Paul and Karen's fault).

The condo is quiet and cozy. We were able to spread out fairly well (Family of 5; kids aged 13,8,10). It is close to several restaurants, both chain and local, and also close to a theater. We will definitely look to stay here again if we venture back to this area.

Thank you for a very nice conclusion to our trip to Florida!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Originally from this area, we came back for our perfect "trifecta"- family, friends & fishing. We had a great time on the lake. The boat was awesome! The condo is homey & comfortable, nicely decorated too. King bed makes all the difference... cause it's no fun to squash up on tiny beds when on vacation. The linens were soft & silky... had some best naps ever :) All the furniture is just right for relaxing and lounging on those in between lazy days. We had a great time visiting, playing and relaxing!
