Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Paradise is the correct name for this condo. It is spacious, well maintained and beautifully furnished. The location is quiet and scenic off the back deck, yet it is convenient to grocery shopping and local restaurants. The only complaint we have is the slow and unreliable internet connection. Hope to go back next year.

I don't typically write reviews but I think I must in this case. The condo was nice other than the fact that there was black mold under the sink in the kitchen. We were there for my sister to get treatment for Lyme disease and mold toxicity. We arrived late in the evening so we did not have time to find another place. We conferred with the Dr. treating my sister the next morning and he said absolutely do not stay in a place with visible mold. So I had to leave my sister at the clinic and go pack all or our things, find a new place and move us to new accommodations. The owners refunded the rest of our stay but were unwilling to waive the cleaning fee. Mold is a huge health risk and I would not recommend staying there if you are sensitive to mold. I didn't feel it was right to charge the cleaning fee for accommodations that should never have been rented out until the mold was eradicated.

The perfect vacation rental for young families.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this vacation rental....

The townhouse is spacious, extremely clean and the beds are comfortable. The rental is also very well equpped (just as described in the listing). Everything we needed was provided to us.

The main pool is steps away - clean, not heavily chlorinated and usually empty. The toddler pool was great for my 2 year old (although by the end of the trip she preferred to stay in the "big girl" pool with her 4 year old sister).

The complex is in a quiet residential area, but close to many attractions. Guenter, the property manager, is very knowledgeable and gave us many good suggestions on what to do. While we were there, we visited Clearwater Beach, explored Honeymoon Island, saw the manatees at Homossassa Springs (don't miss this one!), went for bike rides along the Pinellas Trail (good bikes and kid's seats provided), and ate greek food in Tarpon Springs.

We were really happy with this vacation rental and can't wait to go back!

Nearest Airport
30 Kilometres
Tampa International Airport
Car: recommended

Palm Harbour is about 30 minutes Northwest from Tampa and the complex can be reached by car from the Tampa International Airport.

The complex of 'Sherwood Lakes' is located in a tranquil district of Palm Harbours, close to the Alt 19. Adjacent there is the Wall Springs Park, ideal for children, for walking or unwinding.

In the evenings, a walk to Crystal Beach, which is only few minutes away, is very pleasant to enjoy the memorable sunsets on the pier.

In the immediate vicinity, there is a supermarket. Several restaurants can also be reached on foot. Other shopping facilities as well as restaurants and a shopping centre are only few kilometres away on the US 19.

Towards the south, you can reach the Clearwater Beach within 20 minutes with the famous sandy beaches and after 20 more minutes you reach the pretty city of St. Peters burg.

Golf: Several beautiful, partly marvellous golf courses are very close to the complex. Only few minutes away there is the famous establishment 'Innisbrook', which also hosts the current professional PGA tour.
