Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the month we spent at this condo in Palm Harbor. It is quite spacious with lots of room in the closets. The beds are very comfortable and it is it is very quiet with no nightly traffic noise just the morning bird chorus! All the appliances work well ,myhusband enjoyed the TV with the DVD and the reliable internet speed was impressive. The condo is in a beautiful residential area and we enjoyed walking through the neighbourhoods with the wide boulevards , ponds and fountains. There is also a huge county park nearby with two forested walking trails. There are numerous restaurants and shops nearby. The residents are very friendly and it is easy to meet people at the pool area. Ken is a very helpful host and everything was handled very efficiently.

Quiet, spacious, and comfortable condo in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

I spent about three months at the condo while working in the Tampa area and really enjoyed my stay! The condo complex is nice and quiet and the surrounding area is full of pretty foliage and wildlife.

Inside, the entire unit is extremely clean and spacious. The master bedroom is especially great, as it includes a comfortable King sized bed, a large bathroom, and a huge closet with plenty of storage. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, dishes, utensils, etc. and all the necessary appliances. The coffee maker was a nice added touch! The living room is very comfortable, boasts a great TV with a ton of channels, and overlooks the pond on the property.

Some of my other favorite amenities include the high-speed and reliable Wi-Fi, the extremely well functioning air conditioning, washer and dryer, and covered parking space directly outside the condo.

The area is extremely convenient with great restaurants and shops nearby. It’s also only a short drive away from Clearwater Beach and a more hidden gem, Honeymoon Island in Dunedin.

Ken is a great host and proved very helpful throughout my stay. I would absolutely recommend!

Great long-term stay!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Ken's property for two months. It is in a great, central location in Pinellas County - a quiet, residential, very walkable neighborhood. Grocery market, gas station, banks, restaurants within 1/2 mile of the complex and Countryside Mall is about 10 mins away. The condo complex is quiet and well-shaded with mature trees (real forestation, not palm trees) - there's even lots of wildlife in the area (something you don't expect in the middle of Pinellas County). Take a walk on the cart path of the golf course in the neighborhood and see over 20 deer grazing the course in the early evening! The unit itself is very large - about 1300 square feet! Plenty of room to move about with 2 very large bedrooms - you won't feel cramped at all. The beautiful picture window overlooks the pond so you can sit in your living room and watch the egrets and heron hunt in the pond. For practical matters, the beds are very comfortable, LOTS of storage space, large kitchen with all the appliances, dishes, pots/pans you could need, in-unit washer/dryer! The unit is very clean and well kept and Ken was very responsive at all times. Oh, and the assigned parking space is directly in front of the unit - always a plus!

An Excellent quiet and friendly condo community near most anything you love about Florida.

  • 4 of 5

The reasons for my staying at this property were different from the usual vacation rental. I needed temporary housing while I found housing in the are due to my job transfer. I thought it would be a difficult experience.

But then I found this property on VRBO and expected it to be too much out of my budget for the amount of time I needed. Then I connected Ken Barrett the owner. That made all the difference.

Through out the whole moving and transition that my family endured in move down to the area, Ken was there to work with me on what ever changes my schedule required. That's what you want when you plan to stay in a VRBO-not someone who will take your money and tell you where the keys are. Ken made sure the place was up to our liking.

The photos on the website don't really do the condo justice. It really is a pleasant, well stocked condo with everything you need in it. If you're short staying there, you only need your clothes and tooth brush!

The complex itself is in a more mature area of Palm Harbor meaning more mature shade trees and full time residents that take pride in their homes so it's quite lovely just to simply walk around the grounds and enjoy the pool and meet some of the neighbors. Good People!

I really can't recommend this place more if you want a pleasant, quiet, friendly place to stay that is a close drive to things you want to do. Ken is the guy you want to deal with. Ken will be my first call for any extra visitors we have when they come to town.

Fantastic Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with Ken and Nancy and we intend to return next year. The unit is located in a quiet, beautifully maintained complex in an upscale East Lake neighborhood. The unit itself overlooks a pond where you will see an eclectic assortment of wildlife. A short walk away is the community pool which is well maintained and heated to the mid 80s. Neighbors are friendly and helpful.

Inside the unit, it is functionally furnished and decorated. The photos that are online accurately reflect what we found here. The large screen TV is great for watching golf and other sports events. The cable package has every channel imaginable and a PVR. Internet is quick and reliable.

Close by are a variety of golf courses, restaurants, movie theatres, beaches, shopping malls, sightseeing, entertainment options and the list goes on.

Ken is a great host who is only a text or phone call away. He makes it clear that any deficiencies will be corrected immediately and his actions correcting a minor problem during a previous stay bear this out. In our opinion, his prices are fair and represent good value. The best recommendation we can give is the fact that we will be returning next winter and hopefully for many years after that.
